Upper Face Anti-Wrinkle Male Transformation | Full Treatment with Before and After πŸ’‰

In today’s episode we join our lovely male patient who is about to undergo anti wrinkle treatment. Here I demonstrate the consultation, risks, benefits, the procedure and aftercare instructions.

Looking at the follow up pictures, he has had a great response to his treatment. With results expected to last from 3-5 months, he’ll certainly enjoy his fresh feeling face.

TREATMENT

As you can see treatment time is fairly quick with initial inflammation post procedure expected to resolve after 10-15 minutes. Changes are expected to be seen around 3-5 days with optimal results at 2 weeks lasting 3-5 months in duration.

Cosmetic Treatments? THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE for Healthy Skin β˜€οΈ | Sun Care Tips

I’m not talking about fillers, anti-wrinkle or fancy moisturisers, just sunscreen. The sun emits harmful ultraviolet radiation (UV) which can damage our skin. In particular it emits UV A rays which have longer wavelengths that can penetrate deep into the skin, and UV B rays which have shorter wavelength that penetrate near the surface of the skin. UVA is responsible for ageing our skin, as it sets off enzymes that can break down our natural collagen, leaving us looking weathered, depleted and wrinkly. UV B rays are responsible for causing changes in our skin DNA, meaning that with prolonged exposure, skin cancers can develop.

It’s therefore vital to protect your skin from the suns rays for both medical and cosmetic purposes. But which sunscreen should you choose?

There are a vast array of sunscreens on the market. It’s important to choose one that covers both UVA and UVB. You should also look at the SPF on the bottle. This gives an indicator for how much UVB can reach your skin. For example SPF 30 means 3.3% of UVB can reach your skin and SPF 50 means that 2% can reach. Ok it’s not perfect, but it’s a start. You should also wear protective clothing when out in the sun, such as a hat, shades, loose protective clothing and minimise your time outdoors when the UV is high, typically between 10am-3pm. You can also check the UV index on your phone, when it is 3 and above, you should take measures to protect yourself and limit exposure.

But how much should you apply?

Always follow the instructions on your sunscreen bottle. For an average adult, you should apply 5ml (teaspoon) for each part of your body, for example, 5ml for one arm, 5ml for the face and neck and so on. Re-application is also important, so always refer to the bottle as this can vary.

Over here in the Gold Coast, we have pop up stations that educate on how much sunscreen we are putting on - I tried this myself and I did pretty well, what do you think?

DermLite DL4 Review | Doctor Tools for Skin Cancer & Cyst Diagnosis πŸ‘©πŸΌ‍βš•οΈπŸ”Ž

With alarming statistics that 1 out of 2 Australians will get a skin cancer at some point in their life, it’s important that as a general practitioner I can assess and diagnose these lesions. To do so I use a dermascope or a dermatoscope. This is a device that looks at the surface of the skin with a magnifying glass and light.

Inside the Dermlite DL4 box you will find:

With me here is the dermlite DL4

- A leather carry case

- A USB charging cable

- A lens wipe

- 5 Ice caps - these are essential to prevent cross contamination between patients.

The dermascope has a 30mm viewing lens, with 10 x magnification. It has both polarised and non polarised light capabilities.

Polarised light allows us to assess the depth of structures.

In the non polarised mode we can inspect superficial skin layers - such as the dermo-epidermal junction. In the polarised mode we can inspect deeper skin layers including the dermo-epidermal junction and superficial dermis. The polarised light allows for the identification of blood vessels and pink colour. This increases sensitivity for diagnosing amelanotic melanomas or BCCs.

The non polarised light increases the specificity to identify milia like cysts (which are white) or comedo-like openings seen in seborrhoeic keratosis.

So being able to toggle between the two has a far more superior diagnostic capability.

The dermoscope allows for both contact and non contact on the skin, you may also use immersion liquid in the non-polarised setting.

On the side you can see another button which allows for pigment boost, when used this makes the colour of lesions pop for easier identification.

Just a word of caution, if you’re thinking of having a skin check after watching this video please choose your practitioner carefully. Some physicians will just use their eyes for a skin check, however, I would suggest going to someone who has detailed equipment because unfortunately as humans we haven’t yet learnt how to magnify our vision!

I’ll usually use the dermascope with my magnifying loupes to assess the skin closely and ensure that every centimetre is investigated thoroughly for a comprehensive skin check.

If you’ve not booked in for a skin check in the past year or are concerned that a lesion has changed in size, colour, shape or is itchy or bleeding please seek medical advice or pop by and see me in clinic.

I hope you’ve found this video useful and if you have any questions please drop me a line below in the comments section.

Take care and stay healthy 😘
