Your skin, being the outermost layer of the body projects who and what you are to other people. But besides this role as a facade of your inner self, the skin performs many important functions vital to health. Therefore healthy skin is not an option but a necessity.
A variety of common dermatological conditions are not only unsightly but can also be harmful to overall health and wellbeing. Prevention is the best cure, so early detection, and immediate treatment of certain skin conditions is paramount.
When it comes to delicate skin problems such as acne, sun lesions, pigmentation, or a worrying mole, one wants to be seen by the best medical specialist around. Someone hat can be trusted, someone who can give the right advice, the best treatment (with access to the latest technology) and peace of mind. The team of highly qualified and experienced Consultant Dermatologists, Consultant Plastic Surgeons and Surgeons, as well as Dermatology Nurses from Persona offer a variety of effective, proven treatments for a wide range of skin conditions.
Sun Damage & Skin Cancer
Overexposure to the sun is a major contributing factor to a variety of skin cancers, some more serious than others. The first signs are often brownish growths or moles. Although these are most often nothing serious it is still essential to have them checked regularly by a dermatologist. Persona’s specialists will also be able to remove
them if they look unsightly or if they pose any threat to your skin’s health. Part of Persona’s professional portfolio is also Photodynamic Therapy, an innovative office procedure that removes pre-cancerous growths effectively with minimal inconvenience.
Unfortunately hyperpigmentation and an uneven complexion, as well as broken facial veins and redness, are very common locally due to our sunny climate all year round. With age, one tends to get more age spots, pigmentation and freckles too. Persona’s Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments and photofacials (using the state of the art Ellipse Multiflex IPL) dramatically reduce the appearance of pigmentation and redness, whilst improving overall skin texture. With just 2 or 3 sessions, excellent results are achieved. The procedure is safe, painless and performed by dermatologists for your safety and peace of mind.
Acne & Acne Scars
Acne isn’t just for teens, and those dealing with more than the occasional breakout are affected physically, psychologically & socially. Fortunately, in addition to time proven medications, there are modern techniques that can destroy the common bacteria which cause acne, and can prevent future breakoutsfrom reoccurring. The success rate of IPL with Photodynamic Treatment (PDT) is high, therefore Dermatologists use it confidently. Probably the biggest scourge for acne patients are the scars left behind as permanent reminder of adolescence. At Persona, acne scars are treated with Cynosure Affirm fractional laser. Their team of dermatologists and surgeons will provide you with tailor made programs for optimum results with maximum safety, minimal side-effects and virtually no downtime. The Affirm fractional laser is a collagen-boosting laser that significantly minimises all types of scars (including stretch marks) and improves overall skin texture.
