Our superior vascular laser system, the Cutera CoolGlide, treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely and effectively. Vascular conditions often require a course of treatments in order to produce an effective outcome.
DOT Therapy is ideal for the removal of skin lesions, to treat sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, textural changes and acne scars. The DOT Therapy laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes (DOTs) in your skin, which induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. In most cases, a topical or local anaesthetic will be used to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
Pearl and Pearl Fractional Laser procedures are at the forefront of non-surgical skin rejuvenation. Resurfacing and fractional lasers create a controlled injury of various depths that stimulates a natural healing process. This process initiates the production of new collagen to regenerate the skin. Specific preparation and after care must be strictly adhered to, to ensure a safe and effective outcome. This treatment is generally prescribed by our physician as a course of 3, or performed as a once-only procedure depending on the skin concerns. For full face downtime is 5-10 days.
As a normal part of the ageing process, the walls of the vagina become thinner and the natural elasticity and blood supply reduce overtime. The protective mucosa of the vagina can lose hydration and thickness, causing a loss of lubrication. The symptoms of this can be vaginal dryness or itchiness, irritation and vaginal pain. Mona Lisa Touch is a quick and simple laser procedure which utilises fractional laser to stimulate hydration, strengthen mucous membranes and improve blood supply to the vaginal walls.
PDT – REJUVENATION
PDT (Photodynamic Therapy) is a non surgical, non-invasive treatment for sun damage and some superficial skin cancers. A topical product is applied to the treatment area and selectively absorbed by the damaged cells. A light source is later applied, activating the ingredient within those cells. This causes damage only to the abnormal tissue. Expected healing time for PDT is generally 3-7 days.
PDT – ACNE
Photodynamic therapy is an advanced solution for acne which is recalcitrant to other treatments. A topical product is applied to the treatment area and selectively absorbed by inflamed skin and sebaceous glands. A light source is later applied, which activates the ingredient within those cells, and helps to kill acne-causing bacteria. This significantly reduces inflammatory acne lesions. Expected healing time for PDT for acne varies between individuals, but can be up to 2 weeks.
Specific preparation and aftercare must be strictly adhered to in order to ensure a safe and effective outcome. Some skin conditions warrant a deeper level of resurfacing and therefore stronger chemical peeling agents are needed to achieve the desired effect. Physician-only peel treatments can elicit a more aggressive skin response, which can often lead to faster results. Downtime for prescription peels can be up to 10 days.
