Summer Newsletter 2011
I am sure most of us would be more than happy to say goodbye to spring and welcome with open arms the arrival of summer and with it the promise of more sun and less rain. Assuming this to be the case don't forget that this is the time of year when we need the most Ultraviolet light protection. When the sun is directly above us and at its'highest in the sky, our exposure to UVL is at its' greatest. For those who have not seen it on YouTube the following video is an amazing production to show your children the hazards of suntanning and excessive UVL exposure. View video

Erbium Microlaser peels and Deep Resurfacing

It has now been a few months since we started to do micro laser peeling for "refreshening your complexion and improving the tones and color of your skin" to the use of our deep resurfacing laser to help erase the perioral lines and improve the creepiness of our skin as we age. Almost 20 years ago I used a different technology to achieve these results but the downtime for the patient was significant and almost all users of this technology abandoned it until a much more versatile laser with significantly less downtime became available. With this new technology I can program it to carefully and safely remove different depths of skin depending upon what result I want to achieve and how much downtime One can afford. At most, downtime will be limited to 1 week with some redness remaining for up to 2 to 4 weeks which can easily be camouflaged with makeup.

The photos below are of Debbie's 86 year old mother. For those wanting a micro laser peel downtime is anywhere from 3 to 5 days.

To learn more about this technology see the following video.

Remember that this technology is totally different from microdermabrasion or a superficial chemical peel. Where these technologies only remove 3 microns of skin depth (in other words just the very top layer of the top layer of the skin) the micro laser peel will remove 30 to 50 microns and therefore penetrate much deeper to help smooth out some of the facial pigmentation irregularities. The deep resurfacing laser goes much deeper to smooth out the wrinkles in the perioral area.

Swisstec for Oily Complexions

One of the more frustrating problems for some of our clients has been too much oil production. Oil production is determined by our genetics and unfortunately nothing topically can shut it down. One of the new product lines we have just started to carry has however proven quite beneficial for "blotting" up this excess oil during the daytime when we are wanting to wear our makeup and not have to reapply during the day. To learn more about the SwissTEC product for oily skin, see our website or ask either Debbie or Patsy or one of our nurses when in the office next.

In the meantime have a safe and pleasant summer.
