The surrounding elements are very often just as relevant for the health of our skin as is our personal skin care. This is especially true when we are not able to avoid exposing ourselves to ultraviolet rays despite being fair skinned; such circumstances will unavoidably lead to the appearance of sun spots, age spots, actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, actinic cheilitis, freckles and wrinkles. Avoiding activities that could harm the skin, such as smoking, prolonged UV exposure without protection or an unhealthy diet, will help you preserve the elasticity of your skin, though some additional help is always welcomed in order to aid you in reversing some of the effects of ageing. In order to help its patients in doing this, Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides excellent age spots removal and sun spots removal in Gloucester with the help of the Deka Fractional CO2 Laser.
Sun spots and age spots, known in the medical community as solar lentigines, are darker patches of the skin which form following prolonged exposure to the sun. This skin condition is considered completely benign since it does not cause any pain or affect the proper functioning of the body, though it does sometimes impede the early detection of skin cancer. While no physical damage is caused by sun spots or age spots, the characteristic brown spots are considered highly unaesthetic and may create considerable personal issues. The exposure to ultraviolet rays causes the overproduction of melanin in certain portions of the skin, which in turn leads to the appearance of a multitude of brown spots of different shapes and sizes on different parts of the body. The sun exposure will also contribute to the breakdown of epidermal elastin and seriously damage the superficial layer of the skin, ruining the skin’s texture and producing new wrinkles. Older patients with lighter skin tones are generally more predisposed to the appearance of age spots, sun spots and hand spots, though this form of melanin overproduction can be seen in all genders, races and age groups. For those who wish to eliminate the symptoms, Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides excellent sun spots removal, age spots removal and hand spots removal in Gloucester.
Before undergoing any form of brown spots removal or age spots removal treatment, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic team of dermatologists will hold a detailed medical examination that will help them explain the benefits and limitations of the procedure as well as better understand the patient’s expectations. The consultation is also very important because it allows the medic to determine if the skin lesions the patient presents are benign or malignant. If the lesions are malignant, then the probability is that either a shave biopsy or a complete surgical excision will be recommended in order to make sure that a more serious issue does not develop. If, on the other hand, the skin lesions prove to be benign, our team of dermatological specialists will use the Deka Fractional CO2 Laser to carefully damage the superficial stratum of the skin causing it to shed. The high-intensity, concentrated, monochromatic beam of light will completely remove any brown spots while also encouraging the creation of new skin cells that will replace the old ones and a more intense collagen renewal. This manner of skin laser treatment is especially suited for sun spots removal, age spots removal and brown spots removal as well as for addressing the aesthetic issues caused by actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, actinic cheilitis and freckles. Using the innovative Deka Fractional CO2 Laser, our medical technicians have considerably increased the precision with which they perform the laser treatment and reduce any unnecessary damage caused to the skin, thus ensuring a shorter recovery period and less discomfort. Laser sun spots removal, age spots removal and brown spots removal are very simple, effective and non-invasive procedures which can effectively eliminate any unaesthetic brown patches without causing any scarring.
Undergoing a kojic acid skin treatment during the 3 to 4 weeks prior to the laser treatment is recommended in order to facilitate the operation’s effectiveness. Increasing the intake of Vitamin C is also very beneficial for the long-term aspect of the skin. If the patient has had any issues relating to herpes outbreaks, then our team will recommend the he undergoes an antiviral treatment 6 days before the laser operation. In any case, we will make sure that each patient enjoys a treatment that is customized to his particular medical requirements.
