Laser Acne Scar Removal

Acne scars can now be greatly improved with fractional laser technology (fraxel laser). It works on both inflammatory acne, old acne scars and hyperpigmentation, which are discolored blemishes that remain after acne has healed completely. For more information on Fraxel Laser click here.

Get your skin beautiful and ready for summer! September 20, 2018 - There are several non-surgical procedures and treatments that can get rid of dry, old skin (always more of a problem after winter!), some of them more effective and popular than others. How do you know which one is right for you? To start with you need to make sure your clinic or practitioner has the right training and experience, and is suitably skilled to give you the right advice. Dr Gavin Sandercoe, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, offers several of these treatments at his skin clinic in Bella Vista NSW and chatted to us about which ones are most popular at this time of the year to get your skin ready for summer. Chemical Peels Peels are amazing to get rid of the outer layer of dead skin that builds up over time and gives your skin a more youthful appearance. Dr Sandercoe says, “Chemical Peels stimulate faster cell turn-over, pushing healthier layers of skin to the surface while the older skin cells are shed. This results in a more youthful appearance to the skin. There are three types of chemical peels we offer: Lactobotanical Peels (Lactic Acid) – this peel has particular advantages over glycolic acid peels, including less irritation […]

Fraxel Laser Scar Minimisation with Coco Ruby Skin Clinic February 23, 2017 - Scarring is an inevitable part of having surgery, and is often the one thing that people who decide to have surgery often worry about. Apart from ensuring that you get a highly-qualified Surgeon who focuses on precision incision techniques and proper scar management, there are other technologies that can help minimise scars. Fraxel Laser is one of many technologies for scar reduction for some patients, and Coco Ruby Skin Clinic in Hawthorn and Berwick (VIC) offers this state-of-the-art scar-removal treatment. How FRAXEL laser treatments can help reduce scars after surgery Fraxel laser works by targeting the skin areas that were penetrated by surgical incisions or otherwise underwent dermal changes that resulted in the formation of a scar. Using a patented fractional laser technology, only a small area of the skin tissues are treated at a time. The surrounding skin remains unaffected and intact. The deep penetration of this laser treatment promotes rapid healing, which occurs faster than if the entire skin is treated at once. Collagen production is triggered to encourage the growth of new and healthy skin. Repeated treatments will lead to healthier and renewed skin. Benefits of Fraxel Laser treatments include both scar minimisation AND skin rejuvenation: Removes […]
Facial Rejuvenation Treatments Laser Treatments for Facial Rejuvenation May 5, 2016 - As we age the effects of the harsh Australian sun take their toll on the appearance of our skin. Generally, lines appear around the eyes and lips first. Then, as the collagen beneath our skin breaks down, deeper lines begin to appear, as well as obvious sun damage in the form of hyper-pigmentation (unattractive dark blotches). The scarring of acne may worsen with age with an increase in redness, capillaries and facial veins more obvious. These can begin to appear along with a less firm surface to our skin. Laser facial rejuvenation can help repair and renew our skin, producing excellent results. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) skin rejuvenation is a form of light-based skin therapy. By using safe and effective laser in a small area of the skin particular skin issues can be targeted and corrected. This IPL technology works by lasers targeting cells and causing damage to the area. This damage promotes a wound-healing response in the skin, without a major tissue build-up. After treatment, the skin begins to rapidly produce new skin cells, which replace the old and damaged areas of skin. Fractional Laser uses pinpoint, computer-guided precision to create micro-channels in the skin. This initiates the body’s […]
Facial Pigmentation Treatments Laser Treatments for Facial Pigmentation May 5, 2016 - Excessive skin pigmentation is a result of the overproduction of melanin. This excessive pigmentation can have a number of causes including excessive sun exposure, hormones, skin trauma and congenital conditions. This unsightly pigmentation can now be treated effectively with lasers. The type of treatment used will be dependent on the type of pigmentation. Different lasers are used for different types of skin pigmentation and skin types. Intense Pulsed Laser (IPL) technology works by a laser targeting cells and causing damage to the area. This damage promotes a wound-healing response in the skin, without a major tissue build-up. After treatment, the skin begins to rapidly produce new skin cells which replace old and damaged areas of skin. C02 Lasers can provide dramatic improvements for sunspots and offer long-lasting results with the least amount of treatment. The intensity of the laser is adjusted on an individual basis and thus offers the practitioner a wide range of flexibility in minimising the appearance of sun damage on the skin. Fractional Laser uses pinpoint, computer-guided precision to create microchannels in the skin. This initiates the body’s healing response by stimulating new collagen and elastin production, while the surrounding skin remains intact for rapid healing. Fraxel […]
Younger looking skin with radio wave technology Younger looking skin with radio wave technology May 30, 2013 - Younger, Healthier Skin – Quick and Painless There is any number of non-surgical treatments available in the market to assist people in achieving a younger healthier looking skin. These include skin surface treatments such as micro dermabrasion, injectables such as fillers and Anti-wrinkle injections, laser treatments such as Fraxel  and radio wave treatments like Ultherapy, Ulthera and Pelleve. Radio wave treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years due to them being quick and relatively painless. Firstly though and in order to understand how the radio wave treatments work it is useful to have a short discussion on why skin becomes wrinkly and what skin care regimes should be implemented in order to give your face the best possible chance to have a healthy glow and for you to be as young looking as possible. Younger looking skin depends on collagen. You have probably all heard or read about collagen. You may have even bought collagen supplement pills or drinks on the basis of marketing claims that they will promote the production of collagen in your body. Well I am sorry to say that there is no scientific evidence to back up those claims. It is very true however that […]
