On 20 May 2019 I had head and neck surgery to remove part of my lower jaw. Without going into all the gory details, I was left with a significant scar (requiring 30 staples) the full length of my neck.
Combine this with post-surgical oedema and my face, to be totally honest, looked a little rough.
To find a suitable treatment program to help reduce my scar that was not going to comprise to my surgery.
Research led me to a combination of treatments that helps restore, heal and stimulate scar (and by default) rejuvenation.
And these treatments are…
LED (Light Emitting Diode)
Using specialised Hyaluronic Acid Delivery Mask with LED Rejuvenation treatment I was able to…
- Reduce Scar inflammation
- Increase Skin Volume
- Smooth scar tissue
- Hydrate Scar tissue
These are a moisture enhanced gel masks with high levels of hyaluronic acid (your natural hydrator) and when used with LED further stimulate collagen and elastin firming and hydrating at the same time. So, for scar revision it is the ideal combination.
What’s so good about Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is one of the three building blocks of your skin. Skin volume is supported by…
- Hyaluronic acid
And as we age, Hyaluronic Acid decreases – throw in sun exposure, smoking and other environmental factors the decline is accelerated. We see decreased volume, wrinkles, lines and poor skin elasticity.
The other magical ability of Hyaluronic Acid – it’s hydrating power – One gram of HA can retain 1000 times its weight in water.
Result – Daily use of HA helps keep skin hydrated and protects your skin’s natural barrier from damage. It helps retain volume helping firm skin and retaining your skin’s natural elasticity.
And LED – how’s that going to help my skin?
There are many advantages of LED Light Therapy as a skin rejuvenation treatment. LED is a proven light-based skin corrective therapy that utilises thousands of tiny coloured LED (light-emitting diode) lights to heal and rejuvenate problem skin.
LED stimulates the production of age-defying adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and collagen to repair and rejuvenate skin on a cellular level. When we combine with a superior skin hydration with an advanced delivery system the results can be remarkable.
And my results when we combined Hyaluronic Acid and LED?
Well, if it can do this for my scar after only two weeks of intensive treatment imagine what it can do for your skin….
