SmartXide Laser Treatment for Pigment Abnormalities

The Aesthetic Beauty Centre has a comprehensive portfolio of treatments for the rejuvenation of skin. SmartXide offers the fastest and most effective way for the non-invasive revitalisation of skin from pigment abnormalities. Harnessing the technologies of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Fractional laser means that most patients of any age and skin type I-IV can achieve a uniform result.

Skin achieves its colour from a pigment called Melanin. When the skin cells become unhealthy or damaged, they can affect and deplete their Melanin production. Some skin pigmentation disorders affect localised patches of skin in conditions such as Pregnancy, Addison's disease and sun exposure (which can all make your skin appear darker). Laser resurfacing treatment is one of the most effective ways to remove unwanted pigmentation such as age spots, sun spots and freckles. For deeper pigmentation issues such as Melasma, Laser Resurfacing alone may not be sufficient.

¨Laser therapy is one of the most advanced and effective treatments for removing unwanted skin pigmentation such as freckles, sun spots and age spots. The laser treatment does not affect the surrounding tissue but can affect the skin colour. These non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using a targeted energy to penetrate the deeper layers of skin, which in turn stimulates Elastin and Collagen production whilst gradually improving the skin tone and texture.¨ - Wendy Dutta (Chief Aesthetic Nurse)

SmartXide is one of the most effective ways to treat sun damage, differential textures and pigmentation, which primarily occurs on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. SmartXide treatment has the advantage of minimal downtime.

Chief Surgeon Dr Ashish Dutta and his team at the Aesthetic Beauty Centre were one of the first clinics in the United Kingdom to initiate this pioneering type of treatment to eliminate the visible appearance and impact of pigment abnormalities. With SmartXide, the laser uses a CO2  fractional system which houses a very responsive scanner with the capacity to undertake specific ´DOT resurfacing´. This skin treatment produces a resultant tightening of the skin which can help to greatly reduce these visible pigment abnormalities.

The Aesthetic Beauty Centre operates with a fully qualified team of medical professionals; managed by Dr Ashish Dutta and Wendy Dutta who will discuss the procedure in detail during the initial consultation along with the advantages, benefits and any side effects you may experience. All after care advice will also be given at this appointment.
