Treatment of HyperPigmentary & Vascular Disorders (Smartxide DOT / GentleMax ProŽ)

Common Cosmetic Pigmentation Disorders:

Ephelides (freckles)

Freckles are pale brown spots, usually less than 5mm in diameter with poorly defined margins. They are first noticed during childhood are common in fair- skinned individuals. If left untreated, they usually darken on sun exposure.

Melasma

Melasma consists of brown spots/ patches on both sides of the face, especially on the cheeks, upper lips, nose, chin and forehead. The distribution is usually symmetrical. Melasma is often seen in women of child- bearing age. The color in melasma darkens on sunlight exposure. Melasma tends to occur during pregnancy and with the use of oral contraceptives.

Dyschromia (Patchy Skin/ Mottled Skin)

Irregular or patchy discoloration of the skin that can be caused either by variations in pigment density (melanin), changes in blood vessels (vascular changes) or growth of foreign organisms on the skin. Mottling or mottled skin refers specifically to vascular changes in the skin which cause a patchy appearance.

Solar Lentigines (Age Spots)

Age spots are flat, brown patches of skin that occurs in irregular shapes. Age spots are caused by an increased number of pigment-producing cells in the skin. They are thought to occur in response to long term sun damage and are associated with aging of the skin. As we age, our skin tends to get thinner. This causes older people to have pale, translucent skin. The number of pigment, or color-containing cells decrease. The color- containing cells that remain tend to get bigger and group together as age spots. Age spots appear most commonly on the arms, face, and back of the hands.

The above conditions are common and can be treated effectively with various laser applications to remove pigments with scarring.

How does Smartxide DOT work?

Smartxide DOT laser is a revolutionary device for the treatment of wrinkles, skin laxity & texture, acne scarring & scar reduction, melasma, dyschromia (patchy skin), stretch marks, kelloids, dermal lesions, photoaging and much much more.

The Smartxide DOT treatment represents the very latest in tissue rejuvenation laser technology. This great breakthrough laser utilizes a CO2 fractional system with a scanner that allows the doctor to do a "dot resurfacing". By removing a customised pattern of dots and not the entire skin surface, this technology combines the best of both worlds - the proven and safe results of a traditional ablative CO2 laser, but without the pain, downtime and potential side effects.

The Smartxide DOT treatment causes a rapid tigntening of the skin, reduces blemishes and softens irregularities and scarring. It also stimulates collagen production, giving the skin a younger, plumper look and feel. Each treatment session can be customized and tailored to an individual’s skin type and condition.

How does GentleMax ProŽ works?

One of the things we pride ourselves on is the dedication we have for each individual patient. We understand that time is limited and should be maximized. With that in mind, we have included the GentleMax ProŽ laser treatment in our menu of services. Treatments provided with this consolidated system harness the incredible power of multiple wavelengths of light to treat concerns such as:

  • Beard bumps (PFB) and razor bumps
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Facial and Spider veins
  • Leg veins
  • Freckles and pigmented lesions
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Unwanted body or facial hair
  • Hemangiomas
  • Rosacea
  • Pigmented Lesions
  • Diffuse Redness

The GentleMax ProŽ, in combining two of the most powerful forms of laser therapy, achieves more in a shorter period of time. The 1064nm Nd:YAG laser and 755nm Alexandrite laser form a "power couple" through which the skin is not only smoothed from unwanted hair, it treats pigmented and vascular lesions, and it also tightened and toned.

The delivery of specific wavelengths of light to the skin affects the cells that lie beneath the epidermis. Here, accumulated melanin absorbs the light as heat, causing pigmentation to shatter. Depending on the severity of pigmentation, it is possible to see noticeable results after your first treatment.

The combination of laser energy contained in the GentleMax ProŽ is what makes this treatment so incredibly special. Reaching beyond the epidermis and into deeper cells, the combined energy of the 1064nm laser and the 755nm laser excite collagen-producing cells to increase their level of activity. Collagen is a vital substance to the supportive matrix of fibers beneath the skin. As we age, our body makes less of this substance, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging that makes us look and feel older. Encouraging the increased, ongoing production of collagen, laser treatments produce gorgeous change, taking years off of the face..
