Crow’s feet are the lines and wrinkles that form on the outer corners of your eyes. They typically start just at the edge of your eyes and run out toward your ears. An element of crows feet are an attractive feature so a balance of treating lines but not having a pristine wrinkle free zone is ideal. Dr Phillips laser treatment can achieve a natural younger look without looking as though you have had any aesthetic treatment.
The jowl area is an area of concern for many men as they age. As a natural process of ageing collagen is lost at 1-2% per annum from the age of 30 years. This leads to laxity around the jowl area which can age the face prematurely. This process can be reversed with collagen stimulation by laser therapy. Dr Phillips can increase collagen and tighten existing collagen fibres resulting in better skin tone and texture, lifting the jowl area.
An area of concern for many men as they age is the increased laxity around the neck area. From the age of 30 men will lose 1-2% collagen per annum which leads to increased skin laxity. Dr Phillips last treatment will stimulate your body to produce more collagen – neocollagenesis therefore improving the elasticity of the skin and decreasing neck laxity.
Although this is often a problem for teenagers it is by no means limited to this age group and many people will experience acne in their later years. Hormones can also play an active role in the exacerbation of acne.
Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands* produce too much sebum. The excess sebum mixes with dead skin cells and both substances form a plug in the follicle. If the plugged follicle is close to the surface of the skin, it bulges outwards, creating a whitehead. Alternatively, the plugged follicle can be open to the skin, creating a blackhead.
Laser treatment can effectively treat acne and even reduce active acne and boils with immediate visible results.
*Sebaceous glands are tiny glands found near the surface of your skin which are attached to hair follicles, sebaceous glands produce an oily substance called sebum.
Ingrowing Hair & Boils
This can be a significant problem in and around the genital area for men in particular. Sports can sometimes make people more prone to cysts/boils and ingrowing hairs which can be incredibly uncomfortable and significantly impact on quality of life. Dr Phillips laser treatment can instantaneously reduce the size of cysts and decrease the discomfort levels after just one treatment.
Snoring is a problem affecting as many as one in four people in the UK, according to NHS estimates – and men are twice as likely to snore as women. Snoring is caused by things such as your tongue, mouth, throat, or airways in your nose, vibrating as you breathe. It happens because these parts of your body relax and narrow when you’re asleep. Some people have laxity of the soft palate causing an exacerbation of these symptoms. You are more likely to snore if you are overweight, smoke, drink too much alcohol, or sleep on your back.
Sometimes snoring is caused by a condition like sleep apnoea, which is when your airways become temporarily blocked as you sleep. However there are specialist laser treatments that can transform your ability to have a good night’s sleep.
Hard to budge fatty deposits
