Concerns

Acne scars can seem like a double whammy as your first have to deal with the pimples and then afterwards deal with the marks that remain.

Acne scars comes in many shapes and form: red or pigmented marks or depressions on your skin that vary in depth and shape. The best approach is to get treatment for acne as soon as it starts to appear so as to prevent further severe acne and more scarring.

We can treat surgical and keloid scars and recommend that you see our dermatologists first who can then oversee your treatment to ensure we help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Laser treatment is selected based on the appearance and severity of your scarring, skin type and recovery time. We cannot make the scars disappear, but we can remodel the scar tissue to make them look better.

Treatment

  • Superficial scarring can be treated with serial Fractionated laser or a single ablative laser treatment

Sweating is your body's normal mechanism to cool itself, but some people produce more sweat than is needed for cooling. Abnormal increased sweating is known as hyperhidrosis and can be a very embarrassing and socially debilitating disorder to have. Our dermatologists can help treat your condition.

Treatment

  • Sinclair Dermatology offers a number of treatments, including Botox injections for axillary hyperhidrosis.

Wrinkles are folds and creases in the skin and are formed due to two main factors:

Intrinsic ageing from the natural stages of human degeneration such as the loss of elasticity, collagen and hydration. Crow’s feet, or wrinkles that appear at the corners of the eyes, are one of the earliest signs of ageing.

Extrinsic ageing which is from environmental factors such as sun exposure. Most wrinkles appear on parts of the body where sun exposure is greatest, including the face, neck, back of hands and top of forearms.

We can’t stop time, but we can slow down the ageing process by stimulating the skin cell production to do the following:

  • Soften wrinkles (rhytides) and fine lines
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Plump and rejuvenate cheeks, nasolabial folds and under eyes
  • Refine lines on the neck and décolletage
  • Tighten enlarged pores
  • Prevent further wrinkles
  • Rejuvenate hands and fingers

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic surgery technique that uses light energy to gently stimulate the natural growth of collagen to improve pores and the skins texture to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Ablative fractional lasers use laser energy to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and removes it. It is great for treating damage on the area where the lip meets the skin, cholesterol pockets near the eyes (syringoma), removal of warts and reduce overgrowth on the nose. Recovery time depends on the depth and surface area being treated.

Non-Ablative fractional lasers produce columns of energy that penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin but does not remove it. It is great for treating fine lines, enlarged pores and any kinds of textural concerns. There is no downtime using this laser treatment and recovery time generally ranges from 30mins to overnight.

With a unique combination of leading-edge technologies, our skin revitalisation light-based treatments target all three layers of photodamaged tissue, epidermal pigment, mid-dermal wrinkles, and deep-dermal laxity.

Treatment

  • Botox
  • Non-Ablative Fractionated laser
  • Ablative Fractionated laser

Multiple factors can attribute to why your skin appear red; allergic reactions, heat exposure or from exercise exhaustion and are generally not of concern besides it being irritating and uncomfortable.

It is a common misconception to refer to visible vessels on your face as ‘broken vessel or broken capillaries’ but they are not actually broken only dilated.

Rosacea is a medical condition that causes redness and often small, red, pus-filled bumps on the face. If you have been diagnosed with rosacea, we recommend that you see our dermatologist prior to commencing any laser treatment.

Typical symptoms of redness are:

  • Flushing
  • Hypersensitive skin
  • Dilated vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Port Wine Stain
  • Campbell de Morgan spots

Treatment

  • Cynergy vascular laser
  • MaxG Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

Leg veins or Spider veins are red or blue veins that are closer to the skin surface and much smaller than bulging varicose veins. They are usually found on a person’s leg or face. Women tend to get the problem more often than men.

Factors that can increase your risk of developing spider veins include:

  • Crossing your legs
  • Being immobile for an extended period of time
  • Obesity
  • Minimal exercise
  • On your feet for an extended period of time

Treatment

  • Cynergy vascular laser
  • YAG vascular laser

Spider and reticular veins can be treated without incision and minimal discomfort in less than one hour.

Although some types of pigmented lesions exist at birth, often times pigment represents one of the first signs of ageing. Pigmentation is a condition that causes the skin to darken in small brown spots or large patches. Although the condition usually is not harmful, it can also be a symptom of a medical condition. We do recommend that you see a dermatologist if you are concerned.

Types of pigmentations include:

  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Melasma – brown patches typically upper cheeks, forehead, upper lips and chin

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic surgery technique that uses light energy to gently stimulate the natural growth of collagen to remove irregular pigmentation. It uses the principle of selective photothermolysis, light-based treatment targets different chromophores in the skin. Chromophores selectively absorb the laser or light energy as heat and yield the desired response.

These optimal wavelengths of light clear pigmented lesions by targeting melanin. The damaged pigmented lesions are then cleared by the body. They undergo a mild desquamation and slough off, removing the appearance of the lesion from the skin.

Ablative fractional lasers uses laser energy to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and removes it. It is great for treating damage on the area where the lip meets the skin, cholesterol pockets near the eyes (syringoma), removal of warts and reduce overgrowth on the nose. Recovery time depends on the depth and surface area being treated.

Treatment

  • Ablative Fractionated laser
  • MaxG Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

Stretch marks are common condition that affect both women and men as result of muscle and weight gain and some medical conditions. Puberty and pregnancy are the most common times for developing these unsightly stretch marks. Initially they appear as pink, red or purple streaks and will eventually fade to silvery white tone. They are more a cosmetic concern that is not painful.

The Cynosure fractionated non-ablative laser is FDA approved for the treatment of white stretch marks. Activation of wound healing leads to collagen replacement and re-organisation within the stria.

Red stretch marks can be treated initially with the Cynergy vascular laser. Four to five repeat treatments are generally required to fade stretch marks.

Treatment

  • Non-Ablative Fractionated laser
  • Cynergy vascular laser

In our society, it has become a trend that less hair is more desirable. People have been using conventional hair epilation methods such as waxing, threading, plucking, shaving and depilatory creams that provides short-term result only.

Laser hair removal treatment effectively destroys the hair follicle, providing permanent ‘hair reduction’. In some cases, this treatment has seen to improve the condition of skin infections caused by the follicles (folliculitis) and boils on the skin from follicles (Hidradenitis Suppurativa)

Treatment

  • The Vectus Diode – great for treating larger skin surfaces. An entire back can be treated in under 15 minutes!
  • The Max Y laser – great for removal of fine and light pigmented hair
  • Nd: YAG laser – great for anyone with a dark skin tone

sculpsure

SculpSure

Non-invasive fat reduction

Many of our patients find, no matter their diet and exercise regimes, they just can’t lose that stubborn layer of fat. SculpSure is a breakthrough in non-invasive body contouring designed to precisely treat problem areas such as your tummy, love handles, back and thighs in just 25 minutes – with no downtime.

The 25-minute SculpSure treatment destroys up to 24% of treated fat cells without surgery and is ideal for people with trouble fat spots that can be particularly resistant to diet and exercise. With no downtime, you can have the treatment during your lunch break and return to work immediately.

After your SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will leave your body and never return so you achieve permanent fat reduction.

The benefits of the SculpSure treatments:

  • Works on all skin types
  • Treats non-pinchable and pinchable fat areas
  • Is a comfortable and well tolerated treatment
  • Customisable treatments to help you achieve your desired goals
  • Has over 90% patient satisfaction – (according to Realself.com)
  • Does not damage the surrounding tissue
  • 25-minute treatment sessions
  • No downtime

What to expect?

During the SculpSure treatment, most patients report feeling a tingling sensation intermittently which is generally well tolerated. Many patients start seeing results as early as 6 weeks following treatment as the body begins to eliminate the destroyed fat cells. Optimal results are usually seen at 12 weeks. While many patients see positive results with as little as one treatment, depending on your desired results, you may wish to have additional treatments.

How does it differ to weight loss?

Throughout adult life, the number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remains constant. If you lose weight through diet and exercise, the size of fat cells become smaller, but typically will not decrease in number. After your SculpSure treatment, the destroyed fat cells will naturally be eliminated by the body and never regenerate.

With the help of Sculpsure, a slimmer, more sculpted body is possible. Look, great, feel great!
