Exposure to UV A and UV B radiation causes aging and burning of the skin. If you have sun damaged skin you may benefit from skin repair treatments to improve the appearance of your skin and destroy pre-cancerous skin cells. The Upper Hutt Skin Clinic offers three treatment to help rejuvenate your skin; Picato, Red Light Therapy and Photodynamic Therapy.
Skin rejuvenation treatments
Upper Hutt Skin Clinic offer other treatments, including Picato. Picato® (ingenol mebutate) is a gel that your doctor prescribes for the treatment of actinic keratosis, which are rough areas of skin caused by over-exposure to sunshine during your life. It works by removing the sun damaged cells in your skin. The gel also activates your body’s defences, meaning that it continues to work for several weeks after you have completed your treatment. This three-day treatment can be used as part of your Skin Rejuvenation Plan. Best results are achieved if allmedic™ repair products have been used for at least two weeks prior to Picato treatment.
Red light therapy
Red Light Therapy (also called Low Level Laser Therapy) is used for Skin Rejuvenation. Red Light therapy helps to naturally enhance tissue recovery through increased blood flow, collagen stimulation, decreasing inflammation and activating the lymphatic system. It also has positive effects on wound healing and general well-being.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) in conjunction with allmedic products is used to improve the appearance of mild to severe sun damaged, oily, blemished and aged skin on all areas of the body. By using LED light, the Doctors at the Upper Hutt Skin Clinic offer PDT as an option which is suitable for a range of skin conditions in a fast, relatively painless and affordable way with minimal side effects and downtime.
A photo active substance (ALA) which occurs naturally in our bodies is applied to the affected area. When applied to the skin, this substance is absorbed by abnormal or damaged cells. Once absorbed, LED light is focused on the treated area. When exposed to light, the abnormal skin cells are destroyed to reveal new, fresh, healthy skin cells. Best results are achieved if allmedic™ repair products have been used for at least two weeks prior to treatment.
Skin rejuvenation products
The Upper Hutt Skin Clinic also offer allmedic skincare products as part of their Skin Rejuvenation regime.
This range was developed by an award-winning team of doctors and dermatologists who all specialise in skin cancer and skin repair. Due to the high concentration of active ingredients, allmedic is only available through trained medical professionals.
