WHAT CAUSES DULL SKIN?
Dull skin is a natural part of aging, but the most common cause of it is a lack of quality sleep (less than 7 hours). This is often linked to busy city lifestyles led by so many individuals today, with work and social obligations taking up most of the day, leaving little time for rest and recuperation.
Dark eye circles, eye bags and wrinkles will begin to form, contributing to the skin’s tired appearance overall. It will also become thinner and drier, leading to a build-up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface which can be exacerbated by an unbalanced diet. Dull skin can also be caused by improper cleansing of the skin, as dirt that remains can clog the pores, making it difficult for them to breathe.
HOW Q-SWITCH ND:YAG LASER WORKS?
Emitting high energy light, the q-Switch Nd:YAG laser treats the affected area by helping to reduce the number of skin cells that are affected. This paves the way for the skin to generate a new layer to replace the old one. The laser is able to penetrate the skin deeply without injuring the upper layer, which triggers the production of new collagen and vital proteins that the skin needs in other to repair itself.
Relatively painless, the laser treatment is quick and suitable for all skin types. It will also help to lighten your skin tone as well as improving the complexion, which gives it a more youthful appearance.
This treatment may not be suitable if:
- You have been prescribed Roaccutane in the last 6 months
- The treatment area is infected or has dermatitis
- You have experienced abnormal wound healing or keloid scarring
- You are using light sensitising medication
- Prone to seizures triggered by light
You can get back into your daily routine without worry as there is no downtime associated with the treatment. There is also no swelling, scarring, bruising or any major side effects that occur as a result. You may experience some mild skin redness but this is minor and should subside within 30 minutes.
You should notice gradual improvements over a period of several months, with each session leaving your skin in better condition than before. A typical treatment cycle consists of 6 sessions spaced 2 weeks apart, but this varies depending on your skin’s condition.
