No Laser, No Light, No Problems

No Laser, No Light, No Problems! 


We’ve all heard about the vast number of Laser and Light based therapies out there that can help you achieve incredible skin. Some people aren’t so comfortable with going under a Laser device, and understandably so. The risks are minute, but we’ve all heard of them. Today we’re writing about a relatively new device, called Sublative Resurfacing using the eMatrix Fractional device.

Sublative Resurfacing belongs to a new class of Fractional technologies, like Fraxel and others, but it’s one of the more recent of those technologies. Fractional devices like Fraxel, and now Sublative, were designed to provided the benefits of traditional resurfacing laser like CO2 without the harmful effects. The design of fractional technologies like Fraxel were quiet a revolution for the cosmetic industry. It really was a strike of genius by the developers who took traditional resurfacing laser technology and fractionate  it.

How on earth do you  fractionate something? Well the inventors realised that instead of making the energy blast out in a single dose if you make it come out of smaller doses through well placed holes then the dose is more effectively managed. The same great results with less downtime!

So what is Sublative? Well not too long ago the engineers at Syneron took this innovation even further. Using radio-frequency as the new energy source the results have been profound. Throughout the course of your treatments you will notice improvements in textural abnormalities, wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars. Even after one treatment, there is considerable improvement.

Be sure to check out our Sublative page for more information.

Gentlewaves LED Therapy is another great alternative to many of the more intense clinical procedures. See LED Phototherapy for more information about this wonder treatment.

In the News Sydney, Australia (July, 2007) — by KATE LOVELACE, Good Health and Medicine

Rule one: simplify your beauty routine. Do you use too many active skincare products at once? Why it’s bad- If you’re using several anti-ageing products at once, you could be over-dosing on retinols (vitamin A) and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), which may cause the skin to react.- If you’re self-prescribing, you might not be using the best formulas for your skin type. What to do- Use active ingredients with caution- Speak with a consultant before buying new skincare.- Take note of what’s in your current skincare to avoid doubling up on ingredients.- Test new products behind the ear or under the jaw line.- Aim to use up the whole tub or tube to see if a product is really working for you. Rule two: don’t over-cleanse. You adore the feeling of squeaky-clean skin and cleanse at every chance. Why it’s bad- “Over-zealous cleansing actually exacerbates an oily skin problem,” says cosmetic physician Dr Sarah Freilich.- If we strip away surface oils, the skin responds by producing even more oil.- It removes skin-protective bacteria, making you more susceptible to infection.- Over-cleansing and over-exfoliating can make skin prone to sensitivity. What to do- Only use a foaming cleanser if your skin is oily.- Avoid overly astringent toners that dry the skin.- Don’t cleanse more than twice a day or exfoliate more than twice a week.- Replace harsh scrubs with a peel-off mask (which removes dead cells) or one with exfoliating fruit enzymes (such as papaya), plus hydrating ingredients. Rule three: stop squeezing pimples. As soon as a spot appears, you just can’t keep your hands away. Why it’s bad- “Squeezing pimples damages the skin and makes pimples worse,” says dermatologist Dr Jo-Ann See.- By rupturing the follicle you release irritants into the skin that cause further inflammation, which can result in scarring.- Some skin types develop permanent hyperpigmentation in the area as a reaction to this kind of trauma.
