Leading dermatologists discuss the latest methods to improve skin tone and texture
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2014 -- A common problem which people consult a dermatologist about is that they are unhappy with their skin tone & texture, particularly those people who have skin that is damaged by exposure to the sun. Typically it has taken a number of years to create the damage and the poor quality of skin tone and texture, and it takes a determined step-by-step process to repair the damage and to make improvements to restore the skin so the patient is happy once more with their appearance.
The step-by-step challenge to improve the texture and tone of skin is featured this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio, where show host, Edmonton dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka welcomes fellow Canadian dermatologist Dr Lisa Kellett, from her practice in Toronto.
In this in-depth interview, the two doctors begin with a discussion about the typical causes of skin problems and those problems caused by sun damage in particular. Dr Kellett then works through her typical step-by-step approach to treating the damage and improving the skin tone and texture. She talks about prevention of skin damage, the use of topical medications, and then how devices such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and lasers can be used for a range of facial rejuvenation procedures from treating red and brown spots, stimulating collagen, resurfacing, and improving wrinkles. Both doctors highlight that there are many different treatment modalities available for patients these days and benefits from using them in combination as part of an ongoing skin maintenance plan.
