Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition which mainly appears on the face and can worsen over time if left untreated. We can effectively treat your rosacea and reduce your facial redness with a combination of our advanced skin treatments. Symptoms of rosacea can include flushing, skin hyper-reactivity, spots, papules and pustules, persistent redness, ocular discomfort and inflamed blood vessels. We first assess a person’s diet and lifestyle to see if there is anything that may be contributing to the skin condition and then find the most suitable treatment plan.
Successfully reduce acne scarring and improve the overall appearance of your skin with a combination of our dermal treatments. Acne scarring is often the result of moderate to severe acne on the skin as more inflammation occurs in cases of pustule, papule or cystic acne. When healthy skin tissue is damaged or destroyed, the skin tries to repair itself by forming collagen. Collagen is what gives the skin its flexibility and strength. However, the body can overproduce collagen during repair, resulting in raised tissue on the surface of the skin forming hypertrophic or keloid scarring. When the body under produces collagen, atrophic scars develop.
Pigmentation is abnormal colouring of the skin – a common concern among Australian’s due to the amount of time we spend in the sun or as a result of hormonal changes. Our medical grade skin treatments can drastically reduce unwanted pigmentation, evening out your skin tone and leaving you to enjoy a brighter complexion! Sun Damage Sun damage pigmentation can appear as freckles or dark brown/black spots, also referred to as age spots or liver spots. They vary in size and are usually found on the areas of the body that have most sun exposure such as the face, chest, hands, arms and upper back. These flat spots are caused by increased pigmentation as a direct result of excessive sun exposure. Hormonal Excess pigmentation or darker areas of skin, can be related to hormonal imbalances, medically know as melasma or chloasma. It commonly appears in females during and after pregnancy or due to oral contraception pills. Pigmentation can also be caused by skin conditions such as post acne, cuts, open wounds, inflammation and surgery.
At LUXE we use a non-invasive treatment called Diathermy for the removal of skin tags, capillaries, stubborn milia and more, on all areas of the body. This device uses high frequency (HF) to attract fluid in the lesion and dries them out resulting in the removal of harmless non-malignant imperfections. Heat is delivered through an extremely fine filament (needle) directly onto the area of concern, immediately drying out the area of concern such as the skin tag, milia or cauterizing blood flow to a stubborn broken capillary.
Post Treatment Care
The area can be hot for a couple of hours’ post treatment, and sometimes a small crust will appear at the site of treatment. This crust will fall off in a few days. It is important to maintain good personal hygiene and keep the area clean. Antiseptic powder will be applied to cool the skin and aid repair. It is important not to pick, scratch or aggravate the area. If a scab is picked off, it can leave scarring. Darker skin types can have a slight scar, this generally blends in with the skin over several weeks. The tissue in the area usually heals without leaving visible signs of treatment and the imperfection will be removed.
Stretch marks appear due to a sudden stretching of the skin and can leave a lasting effect on your confidence. Common causes for stretchmarks include genetic skin conditions, puberty, post pregnancy or weight gain. This type of scarring is caused when the dermis is stretched so rapidly it tears and the skin cannot bounce back. Marks often begin slightly red or purple in colour and then fade, leaving the skin streaked in silvery-white lines that may or may not disappear over time. We recommend multiple modalities to lighten, reduce and clear the appearance of any unwanted stretch marks.
Loss of elasticity and facial volume are inevitable parts of the ageing process. As we lose volume in our faces, the skin begins to droop and produce less collagen and elastin. Ageing may be inevitable but it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a more youthful and vibrant appearance regardless of your age.
