Aura Laser for Sun damage
Sun damage is a very common occurrence in men and woman alike. A multitude of factors, including your skin type, your age, the level of sun exposure you have had, influence the level of sun damage you may have.
Sun damage in your skin can cause some cosmetic effects such as fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration and textural changes that can make your skin look prematurely aged and visibly damaged.
Fines lines and wrinkles due to sun damage normally evolve around the eyes and mouths of middle-aged and older people. Discoloration through extended sun exposure can be observed in the development of brown freckles, the growth of lesions and the appearance of small white marks, most commonly on shins and forearms.
Textural changes of the skin can occur in the inner and outer layers of the skin. The thinning of the outer skin can cause it to blister, tear and graze easily. Simultaneously, the thicker, inner layers of the skin may lose their elasticity. As a result, you may find yellow, thickened bumps on parts of the body that have had the most sun exposure, such the back of the neck and hands.
With our AURA Laser, we can target the following conditions:
- Redness such as telangiectasia (broken capillaries)
- Skin redness and flushing
- Brown pigments
- Lentigines (larger distinct freckles),
- Other types of epidermal pigmentation.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Patients can normally see a significant improvement in the redness and pigmentation of their skin after the initial AURA laser treatment. However, for optimal results, multiple treatments over the course of several weeks or months may be required, especially if you wish to improve the texture of your skin.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
Patients may get some mild redness and swelling after a laser treatment that can normally be covered with makeup. There is no downtime, and you should be able to return to your normal activities after the treatment.
On occasion, more significant swelling, redness and fine crusting may be experienced following the treatment. Bruising, hyper (increased) and hypo (decreased) pigmentation have been reported in some patients with darker complexions. Scabbing, burns and scars are extremely rare.
