What happens to the skin as we age and where does the Sciton skin laser come in?
Here we're talking about BBL, Broad Band Light (not Brazilian Bum Lift - see the treatments page for that!).
Even before we start showing external signs of aging, our skin is undergoing internal, invisible changes that ultimately result in poorer quality. Issues like losing collagen lead to sagginess and wrinkles. The pigmentation may change, leading to dark spots and malasma. And redness and inflammation from sun exposure may be evident.
In medicine, we often talk about "prevention" being better than "cure". In other words, why wait until the changes have progressed so far that your skin shows the effects before you try to correct it? What if there were a quick, relatively easy, low risk way to induce collagen even before the signs of its loss? Research has shown that even by our mid twenties, we are starting to lose significant amounts of collagen from our skin, even though it's not visible to the naked eye yet.
And what if you're older and the outward signs of life have already taken hold. Well now we can reverse many of those unwanted signs on the skin using the very latest laser technology from Sciton. I have spent two years researching this technology and the very best machine in the world is now available at EdenMed Aesthetics. Be one of the first people in the UK to experience this amazing system. I can personally vouch for it. Check out my video on Instagram @dr_sam_ghazawy and on Facebook.
Well, now there is a quick, easy, low risk way to induce collagen, treat redness, and reduce brown spots.
In fact, there are several ways to induce collagen formation, from platelet rich plasma (one of Dr. Sam's best loved treatments) to PDO thread tightening, dermal filler, and of course, plasma / fibroblast eyelid tightening. Where the Sciton Intense Pulsed Light laser comes in is with its incredible versatility. Until now, there were limited ways to treat conditions such as acne, scarring, rosacea and malasma (the uneven brown age spots). EdenMed's Sciton skin laser treats all of these and more...
...and not just on the face. We can treat your whole body.
Does it hurt?
Your comfort is very important to us. At all stages, we will check that you are comfortable. It can feel a little hot and to help with that, we use the same thermoregulating properties of Sapphire crystal in the laser application that's used in Rolex watches. It's truly luxurious.
Is it safe?
All cosmetic procedures carry a small risk. Overall, it is one of the very safest procedures available, and certainly much less risky than surgery!
How many treatments will I need?
Between three and ten treatments yearly are useful to keep the collagen formation active and help prevent unwanted aging effects.
The treatment begins with a detailed discussion and analysis of your concerns and aspirations. Dr. Sam will observe your facial contours and talk to you about areas you may not be aware of which contribute to the concern you raise.
The results of Sciton skin laser BBL are often immediate and improve with additional treatments.
We are devoted to combining a highly bespoke and personal approach, expert treatments, the highest standard of clinical care and dedicated follow up, from an experienced, highly qualified, surgically trained doctor. We put our clients at the centre of all treatments and deliver a service comparable to no other clinic.
