In cosmetic medicine, the aesthetic quality of the end result depends directly on the experience and skill of the medical practitioner and the quality of the medical equipment. This is especially true in the case of laser dermatological treatments, where the medical instrument becomes a natural extension of the dermatological specialist. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we are using the DEKA SmartXide DOT Laser, the latest innovation in medical laser technology, in order to produce effective laser skin rejuvenation, laser skin resurfacing, wrinkle removal, sun spots removal, freckles removal and acne removal. Laser hand skin rejuvenation is also among the aesthetic issues that can be treated with this innovative laser device.
It is a well-known fact that the skin of the hands, the neck and the chest is especially vulnerable to the effects of sun exposure and natural age progression, being among the first areas of our body that show the signs of ageing. Despite this, many patients tend to focus extensively on the facial skin and neglect other parts of the epidermis, which, over time, may produce a very imbalanced appearance. Small epidermal concentrations of melanin, commonly known as sun spots, age spots or brown spots, pre-cancerous growths, wrinkled skin, skin laxity and the excessive loss of fatty tissue are just some of the common effects of exposure to certain unavoidable environmental factors, such as ultraviolet light, water with an improper pH imbalance and the effect of gravity. The DEKA SmartXide DOT Laser can be utilized as an effective anti-ageing laser treatment, pigmentary photorejuvenation and skin tightening laser in conditions that are superior, relative to other similar laser devices. Because of the implementation of the innovative SmartPulse and SmartStack technology, the DEKA SmartXide CO2 Laser can be used to tailor the laser treatment to the particular medical requirements and personal preferences of the patient. Miniscule columns of pinpoint CO2 laser are administered to the area of the skin that presents wrinkles, any form of solar lentigo or lentigo senilis (liver spots, brown spots, sun spots, age spots) or scars, which are all quite common occurrences in the case of the skin of the hands. The DEKA CO2 Laser enables the medical technician to independently control a very wide range of parameters, including the modulation of the laser intensity, the length of the dwell time, the distance between the laser DOTs, the shape and size of the treated area, the number of laser pulses focused on the same point and the scanning method.
The medical practitioner is able to quickly adapt his treatment to the condition of the patient’s skin. Deeper penetration can be used for acne scars or deep wrinkles while a superficial penetration can be used for skin hyperpigmentation and other issues which may affect the external layer of the skin exclusively. Because of the additional precision with which the dermatological specialist can perform his function, the intensity of the post-operational discomfort and the duration of the recovery period are considerably reduced, making the DEKA SmartXide DOT Laser excellent for non-invasive laser procedures such as laser hand skin rejuvenation. The use of kojic acid based creams and skincare products is recommended during the 3 to 4 weeks prior to the actual operation in order to facilitate the laser rejuvenation process. An increased intake of Vitamin C can also be helpful in preserving and enhancing the aesthetic outcome of the procedure. If the patient has had issues or has presented herpes in the past, he will be directed to undergo an antiviral treatment 6 days before the laser treatment. In any case, we ensure a special treatment regime for each individual patient based on their medical background.
The Renew Skin & Health Clinic is able to provide external clinical practitioners with free demonstrations and free training in the use of the DEKA CO2 Laser device. If you wish to use this instrument in your clinic, we are also able to offer additional information and logistical support.
