With our innovative technology, NuSkinnovation’s Laser Clinic Centurion can help you build back your confidence and skin health. Due to the visibility of certain skin conditions, there is an increase in stigmatisation and isolation when you are not meeting conventional beauty standards. People with chronic skin conditions experience significant psychological impacts on their mental health.

 

The mind and body have been proven to interact and affect one another as evidenced in several studies. There has been research showing the impact of skin conditions diminishing the well-being of patients. Physicians, psychiatrists, and dermatologists agree that cosmological and therapeutic interventions can help improve quality of life, by helping people combat perceived dermatological issues.

 

Here at NuSkinnovation, we offer a variety of treatments for various skin conditions and ailments. In this article, we will walk you through the services our laser clinic centurion offers. We hope that you find the information helpful and maybe even helps guide you towards methods to improve your own quality of life.

 

Laser Clinic Centurion Treatments

 

Our laser clinic centurion has a variety of treatments available. Below are some of the notable skin conditions we aid in alleviating.

 

Poikiloderma Of Civatte

 

Poikiloderma of Civatte (PC) is a skin condition that is found on the sides of the neck and face, consisting of discoloration and itchiness. It is characterised by a combination of a reticular pattern of mottled hyperpigmentation, superficial atrophy and linear telangiectasia. There are some speculative factors for the cause of poikiloderma of civatte, which include:

 

  • Environment: Chemicals in everyday products such as perfumes, cologne and laundry detergents can cause a reaction.
  • Sun exposure: The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays and high levels of UV radiation are known to particularly affect fair-skinned individuals and cause PC. General extended exposure to the sun can also contribute to the development of PCs.
  • Genetics: You may simply have a predisposition to PC.
  • Chronic Illness: Chronic illnesses like lupus and thyroid diseases are considered to be triggers for PC.
  • Hormones: Significant changes in hormone levels, particularly menopause and pregnancy are associated with the development of PC.

 

However, it is unknown what specifically causes poikiloderma of civatte – which is why our laser clinic centurion is so valuable. If you do not know the cause of your skin condition, it is hard to combat it directly. Alternatively, some of the causes like chronic illness, menopause and even genetics are out of your control. Our laser clinic centurion allows you to take back control.

 

We target damaged skin cells and remove them with a Fotona laser system. The laser works by emitting a beam of light that absorbs pigment in the skin – breaking it down. Our laser clinic centurion uses a non-ablative laser device which does not remove the top layer of skin. Instead, it targets deeper layers of the skin. This prompts collagen production which results in the rejuvenation of your skin.

 

We position the laser over the desired area where it delivers quick pulses. You may feel tingling and discomfort – however, the procedure tends to be well-tolerated. The severity of the Poikiloderma of Civatte depends on the recommended number of treatments which can be as few as 2 to as many as 6 or more. We recommend having a consultation with our team to meet your specific needs.

Rosacea

 

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition. It is categorised by its inflammatory bumps on the face – seen most commonly on the nose, forehead, cheeks and chin. It can trigger more skin concerns such as stinging sensations, dry skin, and flaky skin. Factors that may lead to the development of rosacea include:

 

  • Sun Exposure
  • Stress
  • Alcohol Consumption
  • Unhealthy Diet
  • Polarised Weather.

 

Rosacea is considered one of the most triggering skin conditions associated with feelings of distress, low self-esteem, social isolation and embarrassment. Depression and anxiety are common for those suffering with rosacea. Over 90% of the National Rosacea Societies surveys attribute this to their self-esteem and self-confidence. Several national health institutes agree that through clinical laser treatments it is possible to see improvements in patient’s standard of living and emotional well-being. It can be daunting to interact with the world and constantly need to be aware of how you are being seen, there is no shame in seeking clinical help with either your physical symptoms or emotional welfare.

 

If you need help minimising your rosacea condition, NuSkinnovation’s laser clinic Centurion offers a non-invasive treatment that can effectively treat rosacea. We use an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to remove damaged blood vessels that cause inflammation and redness which are both common symptoms of rosacea. The various light wavelengths emitted by the IPL are absorbed by the blood vessels and help reduce the redness caused. When visiting our laser clinic, our specialised somatologist treats the target area for 30 minutes. The treatment is not painful, but your skin may appear swollen after the procedure for a few hours or a day or two depending on the intensity of the treatment and the sensitivity of your skin. Cooling gels can be used to minimise any discomfort.

 

The treatment will have optimal efficiency within two to four sessions, each lasting anywhere between fifteen and thirty minutes. The number of treatments depends on your skin’s own unique response to the treatment. Every session will occur within a time frame of about four to six weeks apart so that the skin has a chance to recover and heal. Contact us for more information if you have any other questions.

Warts

 

Warts are not a skin condition, but they are a skin infection and can have an impact on your self-image as with all the other conditions discussed in this article. Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can appear anywhere on the body. The HPV virus is easily transmitted through contact, cuts or scratches. Non-sexual HPV transmission is associated with cutaneous infections, these warts are less likely to be spread. The most common transmission includes:

 

  • Skin-To-Skin Contact
  • Skin-To-Mucosa Contact
  • A Weakened Immune System,
  • Walking Barefoot In Public Areas
  • Biting Or Picking At Fingernails

 

At our laser clinic centurion, we can actually help you remove unwanted warts. This is done by focusing the heat of the laser to destroy the cells in the affected area – causing the wart to fall off. The most beneficial reason to seek clinical treatment is that the laser also kills the virus that causes the wart, which stops it from spreading to other areas of the skin or infecting others. The treatment is quick and requires no recovery time.

 

This treatment might cause tingling and mild burning – although is relatively painless with some discomfort. The length of the treatment is dependent on how large the infection is. The size and location of the warts will also play a role in determining the length of the treatment. The procedure takes a few minutes to complete, swelling and redness are normal and subside within two days. Discuss any concerns you might have with your somatologist, our helpful staff at the laser clinic Centurion we will do their best to address any concerns and make you aware of any side effects.

 

Nevus Of Ota

 

Nevus of Ota, or nevus fusco caeruleus ophthalmo maxillaris, is a type of birthmark that is relatively harmless, although it does need to be monitored, as it may lead to more serious conditions later on in life. It is generally found on the skin around the eye, but can also appear on the forehead, cheek and nose. Nevus is caused by the accumulation of melanin in the skin. The main factors that can trigger Nevus of Ota include:

 

  • Hormonal Changes
  • Genetic Factors
  • Exposure To Ultraviolet Radiation

 

Like many other skin conditions or visible skin differentiations – it can be considered a cosmetic concern. The bluish-grey or brown birthmark can also prompt stigmatisation and unwanted questions. At our laser clinic centurion, we treat Nevus of Ota with a high-energy laser. The body’s natural processes can actually absorb the broken pigmented cells after they have been focused with a laser’s wavelength. During the procedure, patients are given topical or local anaesthesia to make them as comfortable as possible.

 

Redness and swelling are expected after the procedure, and in some cases, there may be mild bruising. The treated skin then forms scabs and flakes off, the difference in skin colour and healing resolves over time. Following aftercare instructions is essential with this procedure to minimise the risk of complications.

 

Like many of our other laser clinic centurion treatments, the number of sessions depends on the size, depth and location of the Nevus of Ota. Generally, you will need between eight and ten sessions that are conducted regularly in a time frame of about three to four weeks apart. However, some people may need fewer sessions. We offer free 30-minute in-person consults if you would like to get a better idea of what to expect.

 

Haemangioma

 

A haemangioma is a common growth of blood vessels on your skin, considered to be a common vascular birthmark. They can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the back, chest and face. They are also considered benign tumours of blood vessels. A haemangioma is prevalent from birth but by age 10 it tends to fade away without treatment. However, people with haemangioma tend to feel ostracised and isolated, with many young children facing bullying in school.

 

The red and purple lumps on the skin are noticeable and visiting a clinic doesn’t hurt if you are insecure or feel that you can benefit from laser treatment in those cases where the haemangioma does not fade on its own. There are also health benefits from having a haemangioma treated. They are generally harmless; however, some haemangiomas may bleed, ulcerate, or interfere with vital functions. Seeking clinical help can alleviate these possibilities.

 

Our laser clinic in Centurion offers two types of light-based therapies for this procedure. Our laser and IPL options both target the blood vessels which causes them to shrink, collapse and as a consequence fade and disappear over time. Lasers and IPL are considered safe for treating haemangioma; however, you can expect some of the following side effects:

 

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Scarring
  • Changes In Skin Colour
  • Blistering

 

The procedure takes between fifteen and thirty minutes. It is crucial to follow after-care instructions which include avoiding the sun, applying ice packs and using gentle skincare products to aid in healing. Follow-up visits are also recommended. Sessions can range from three to ten visits and are at least four to six weeks apart. This specific laser treatment requires in-person consultation where the exact side effects, sessions and quote prices can be discussed.
