The upper back, chest and breast area, and stretch marks over abdomen, breasts and thighs.
Burns and scars on the arms and other parts of the body can also be treated with impressive results.
A combination of lasers and medical IPL effectively penetrates the deeper layers of the skin and increases the skin’s natural collagen production. During this process, old damaged skin is pushed out and replaced by new skin. Through this method downtime is minimised and results are maximised.
Lasers have been used in aesthetic medicine for decades and have been proven to provide safe, predictable and effective results when the treatment is performed by trained doctors. There is minimal pain during the laser treatment, and all patients are offered a topical numbing cream to be applied to the treatment area 30 minutes before.
At SKN MediAesthetics, we offer a wide variety of lasers and medical-grade IPL machines. Dr Alvin is experienced with various lasers and medical IPL, and will customise the treatment according to your needs. The number of treatments that you will need is also based on the severity of your problem. Some may require as little as 1 treatment to achieve their desired results, for others it may take up to 5 treatments.
Treatments can also be deeper, with more downtime, or shallower, with less. The deeper the treatment, the better the results generally. Some patients prefer to have more treatments that are not as deep so they can avoid downtime.
It is essential to consult with Dr. Alvin to select the best possible treatment option for your needs.
During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel warm, slightly tender, and sensitive.
You may also notice your skin appearing pink then turning brown and flaking off over 2-7 days, revealing new skin at the treated areas. This is normal and the extent depends on how intensive your treatment is.
Most people see good results and these continue to improve over time as the skin heals.
During this period, skin will feel smoother and look less blotchy. Eventually there would be fewer lines, smoother skin, and the removal of stretch marks and scars.
