Acne / Toe Fungus

Information

The treatment of acne using pulsed light is constantly gaining popularity among patients seeking a drug-free alternative to treat this chronic, common skin disease. Acne affects up to 80% of individuals at some point in their life. SharpLight systems provide very satisfactory results in the treatment of mild and moderate inflammatory acne, by reducing the number of papules and pustules by 6—65%. This is achieved using three effective, safe and reliable clinical mechanisms: visible blue light absorption to destroy the bacteria, yellow light to coagulate the feeding blood vessels and infrared light to dry the lesions. This treatment works best in a series of 8 sessions over a period of one month. More treatments get more results. Clinical peels can get rid of residual scaring and pitting left behind from older acne and can be added on to these treatments or performed after treatments are finished. Each treatment is booked for 30 minutes.

Our MaxVP2 handpiece emits two ranges of wavelengths. The combination of heat and light destroys the fungus of each or all toes. A minimum of 12 treatments is required and treatments are performed once a week.

Timeline PhotosHigh SPF sunscreens not only over-promise protection but they can also over-expose you to UVA rays that increase your risk of skin cancer.
__
Basically anything over SPF 50 is not doing you any additional benefit. Properly applied SPF 50 sunscreen blocks 98% of UVB rays, SPF 100 blocks only 1% more. Sunscreen with SPF between 30 and 50 offer adequate protection even for people most sensitive to sunburning. You’re NOT doubling your protection by doubling your SPF!
__
The chemicals used to make an SPF are aimed at blocking UVB rays. UVB rays cause sunburn and non-melanoma skin cancers. UVA rays on the other hand penetrate our skin deeper and suppress our immune systems leading to harmful free radical formation and melanoma risk! SPF has barely any affect on UVA ray protection. In fact the higher the SPF the more it prevents UVB in proportion to UVA protection.
__
When tested some sunscreens claiming to have SPF 100 actually only had 37 to 75. The UV light used in labs to make these products differs from real sun conditions and therefore the SPF values are very misleading.
__
The higher the SPF the more concentrations of the harmful chemicals used to prevent sun damage (see last post for details). Your best option is to use sunscreen with 30 SPF and find a natural sunscreen that doesn’t have any of the harmful chemicals listed in the previous post!
