Look towards the light – The anti-aging power of laser
Everyone wants gorgeous, bareable skin. Unfortunately the harsh Australian climate means our skin ages faster than we would like. Age spots, lines and wrinkles and even broken capillaries are common in men and women who spend any of their time outdoors, bathing in UV rays.
While we need sunshine to generate vitamin D, for immunity and strong bones, most of us would prefer to achieve that without the signs of skin ageing.
The good news is that much of this damage is reversible with the right treatment and tools.
Better, clearer, more youthful skin is one of the many outcomes we help patients achieve.
So how do we do it?
