Benefits for skin and hair:
Collagen Pro-Active increases the density of the fibres and fibroblasts, which are the principal cells of the skin and are responsible for the production of collagen. Collagen Pro-Active once absorbed by the small intestine is distributed from the arteries to the deepest layer of the skin, leading to fibroblast proliferation and increased collagen production. With daily use of Collagen Pro-Active, the skin becomes more hydrated.

Book your sclerotherapy appointment now with Dr Heather Blaylock at Lasermed. This treatment is often done to improve the appearance of varicose and spider veins, and can also improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning and night cramps.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades.
After sclerotherapy, treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take a month or more to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.

Discolouration of the neck, known as Poikiloderma of Civatte, is common in men and women. It’s caused by sun exposure and applying fragrance to the neck. Usually, it’s more prominent on a person’s right side (the driving side). Essentially, it’s a mixture of pigmentation and blood vessels. After 2 treatments with the Ellipse Nordlys IPL System by Lasermed’s Suzette La Grange, this is the excellent result.
Winter is a good time to think about having an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation treatment if you have:
1. Sun damage (freckles and sunspots)
2. Redness (broken capillaries, diffused redness, rosacea)
3. Poikiloderma (sun damage on the neck and chest area)
4. Fine lines, wrinkles and dilated pores
I have been using Ellipse, Specific Waveband Technology, which enables me to customise every treatment to the client’s specific skin needs. When deciding to go for a photo rejuvenation treatment, it is important that you use a high sun protection for four weeks prior to your treatment. If your skin is tanned, it can’t be treated.
IPL treatments can make the skin sensitive to the sun, so continue using your sunblock for at least a month after each treatment.
Sometimes, multiple treatments are required and your results will have to be maintained by repeated sessions in future.
I recommend an initial course of 2 to 4 treatments, according to the client’s skin needs, with a monthly interval between sessions. One to two sessions a year are required to maintain the results, depending on the skin condition. – by Suzette la Grange.
