Furthermore, the tell-tale signs of ageing such as sun damaged skin unsettle women more than men.

Once the signs of ageing and sun damage appear on your face, it is time to initiate the most

powerful corrective treatments and topical therapies available. Fortunately new technology, new innovations and medical breakthroughs of the modern age can rectify your sun damaged skin.

Approximately 90% of all changes in skin are due to prolonged exposure to sunlight. Ultraviolet light not only damages the DNA in the cells of the skin, but also inhibits the repair mechanisms that repair damaged skin cells. The breakdown or depletion of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and other supporting molecules in the dermis all lead to the clinical changes of facial aging.

Photoageing caused by ultraviolet light exposure, tends to show more on the surface of the skin. Sun freckles, irregular pigmentation and dilated blood vessels (often referred to as “broken” blood vessels) all add to an overall uneven skin tone. Other characteristics of facial sun damaged skin include fine and coarse wrinkle formation, sallow colour, dry texture, loss of elasticity, loss of skin tone, sagging subcutaneous tissues, underlying muscle hypertrophy and volume loss in the face.

Treatment of sun damaged skin at an early age can stimulate the growth of new collagen that may actually slow down the aging process significantly, allowing a healthier, better looking skin later. Any Skin Renewal centre can assist in this journey to fabulous skin.

The Pearl™ by Cutera is a revolutionary new wavelength that provides rejuvenating benefits to the skin using a Laser Peel treatment method.  The Pearl has a computer guided scanning device that can be programmed to remove specific layers of tissue uniformly.

In her newly launched skin book, Complexion Perfection, Kate Somerville the “Guru of Glow” in Hollywood explains how most of her celebrity clients have a Pearl Laser Included in their skin rejuvenation package.

Pearl is used for patients that need a more aggressive laser peeling and this treatment has a rejuvenating and refreshing effect on the skin, enhancing a youthful appearance.

Skin Renewal recommends a series of 2-3 treatments depending on desired result and the original severity of the condition treated. Resurfacing results are seen in as little as ONE treatment and the Pearl offers predictable, repeatable, immediate results with minimal discomfort and only a modest downtime of 4 days.

Very dark skin or skin with a history of sun exposure in the previous 3 weeks cannot be treated with Pearl ™ Rejuvenation.

Pearl ™ Rejuvenation offers the most effective treatment to address fine lines, uneven texture and discoloration such as freckles. It improves uneven pigmentation and superficial texture of the face, neck and chest, but with little down-time.

After only one Pearl procedure, crepe-like skin with uneven skin tone is replaced by plump, evenly coloured and smooth-to-the-touch skin – making sun damage resulting from an irresponsible youth just a vague memory.
