What causes sunspots (melasma)?
Sunspots, that are known as melasma in medical terminology, are light or dark brown blemishes that appear on the skin due to exposure to harmful solar rays. Though the most important factor that causes the sunspots is the sun, many changes in hormones of the body and processes in the metabolism may lead to the sunspots on the skin. Pregnancy and use of contraceptive pills are the factors that cause a change in hormones in the female body. Unconscious and excessive exposure to harmful solar rays especially during pregnancy or the use of contraceptive bills as well as the hormonal effects may stimulate the formation of sunspots. Furthermore, metabolic processes may lead to the formation of sunspots depending on the aging factor on the skin that is exposed to the harmful solar rays. Though the main reason varies from person to person, sunspot is a skin problem caused by an irregular accumulation of melanin pigment that gives the skin its color.

What causes freckles?
Freckles are small and brown blemishes that appear on the skin, and it is known that genetic susceptibility plays an important role in their formation. An individual’s physical characteristics such as skin color or eye color are effective in the formation of freckles at a young age. Furthermore, freckles are most frequently seen in people with physical characteristics such as fair skin, red hair, blonde hair and colored eyes. Freckles become more visible in the spring and summer months when the harmful solar rays are more active, and they are mostly seen on the body areas such as the face, back, shoulders, and upper side of the hands which are more exposed to the sun. Except for the freckles that appear on the skin at a young age due to genetic susceptibility, prolonged exposure to harmful solar rays and decrease in the metabolic rate due to various reasons such as aging process may lead to the formation of freckles.

What causes birthmarks?
Though the exact cause of birthmarks is unknown, they can be defined as congenital blemishes that appear on the skin. Birthmarks, that are present on the body at birth unlike skin blemishes caused by other factors such as the harmful solar rays, may appear on the skin depending on the pigments that give the skin its color, or the veins. Birthmarks, that are most frequently seen on the face, neck, back of the neck, arms and legs, may be found in various colors such as white, pink, red, light brown or purple depending on their types. However, birthmarks that appear on the skin due to any irregularity in the pigments may disappear or reduce over time. On the other hand, birthmarks that appear on the skin due to any irregularity in the veins and do not regress may darken over time and even may have a negative effect on other tissues and organs.

How sunspots, freckles and birthmarks are removed?
Though sunspots, freckles and birthmarks are skin problems that do not cause any serious health problem, skin blemishes that appear especially on the face may be aesthetically disturbing for some individuals. It is desirable to remove such blemishes through a treatment method if they affect the individual’s psychological state and social life negatively due to aesthetic concern. Before treatment of the sunspots, freckles and birthmarks, it is absolutely necessary to make a true diagnosis for such blemishes by a specialist who is experienced in the relevant field. A treatment plan made with determination of whether any skin blemish is a sign of more serious disease than an aesthetic concern is highly important for the patient. After a medical examination, the specialist informs the patient about the treatment choices by considering the type of skin blemishes.

TREATMENT FOR ACNE AND BURN SCAR
Acne and burn scars can be treated through Thulium Laser. As this treatment method stimulates the therapeutic structures of the skin, acne and burn scars can be significantly removed.

What causes acne (pimple)?
Acne or pimple is a common skin disease that appears on the skin due to excessive secretion of oils from the sebaceous glands. Acne appears on the skin in the form of red colored, swollen, painful and inflammatory pimples caused by an inflammation that results from occlusion of sebaceous glands. Acne, that is one of the most common problems highly affected by genetic susceptibility, is most frequently seen in adolescence when hormonal activities show a change and increase. However, it may be a chronic disease that is not only seen in adolescence but also throughout life. Acne formation, that is more common in men than in women, can recur periodically due to hormonal changes and stress. Though oral or topical medications applied to the skin can remove the acne, it may leave a scar on the skin texture. Acne is most frequently seen on the face, back, shoulders and chests. As acne may leave visible scars on the skin even after the treatment, these scars may cause an aesthetic concern in the patients who complain about acne especially on the face.

What causes burn scars?
Scars may appear on the skin texture, that covers the whole body and protects the internal tissues and organs against external factors, due to tissue damage and burns occurred as a result of accidents. Scars that appear on the skin after a burn can be defined as a tissue difference seen on the wound area after removal of the tissue damage by the patient’s own cells as a result of activation of the immune system. Wound healing is a procedure that may continue even after closure of the wound, and a difference in shape and color of the burn scar may be seen for a while. Furthermore, burn scars may have a different structural appearance as a result of the healing process shown by the patient’s body depending on the causes of burn scars and the individual’s structural characteristics. Burn scars may be more reddish, pinkish or in the same color with the skin due to any trauma of the normal skin texture, and a protrusion or indentation may be seen on the scars depending on their width and depth.

How acne (pimple) and burn scars are removed?
Though scar of the wound healed does not cause any serious health problem, it may be aesthetically disturbing for some individuals. Therefore, it is desirable to repair the appearance caused by the scars and even to remove them completely due to the feeling of uneasiness and discomfort caused by aesthetic concern of the individuals. There are various medical aesthetic procedures that are used to remove such scars caused by acne or burn if they affect the individual’s psychological state and social life negatively due to aesthetic concern.

THULIUM LASER IN ANTI-AGING TREATMENT

Thulium Laser is highly effective in anti-aging treatment. Because:

Thulium Laser draws its strength from the therapeutic cells found in the patient’s body:

The aim of Thulium Laser is to bring the therapeutic cells, that are called ‘macrophage’ and found in the human body, to the problematic area by harming the skin with the signs of aging controlledly and slightly. Thus, the procedure allows the skin to repair and renew itself. Therapeutic cells that already exist in the body provide the production of collagen and elastin synthesis reduced with increasing age and stimulate the inner structures positively without the need for any external intervention.

What is anti-aging?
Anti-aging is a health term, that has become highly popular in the recent years, and refers to the procedures that are applied in order to protect the patient’s well-being, healthy, young and energetic appearance for many years through prevention and delay of the signs of aging as much as possible. Anti-aging process can be delayed if an individual keeps his/her immune system strong, maintains a healthy life, makes a balanced nutrition with protein, carbohydrate, vitamin and mineral a habit, spares enough time for sports and exercises, follows a regular and adequate sleep routine, and keeps away from stress. Another aim of the anti-aging treatment, which primarily aims to provide the individual with an opportunity to maintain his/her life by protecting the healthy process of the cells, is to support the youth and healthy process, that cannot be maintained by the body enough, through many different methods developed and applied in the field of medical aesthetic.

What is the most significant difference of anti-aging treatment?
Anti-aging treatment refers to the procedures that are applied to delay the signs of aging caused by the effects of gravity and time before they appear on the skin and to remove the fine wrinkles through medical aesthetic methods rather than the procedures that are applied to remove and repair the deformations such as wrinkles, sagging skin or loss in volume on the face and body through various medical aesthetic methods. In other words, anti-aging treatment is a highly beneficial method preferred by the young individuals rather than the old people and used to delay the signs of aging that may appear on the skin in the following years.

What are the treatment methods applied for anti-aging treatment?
Non-surgical treatment methods applied for anti-aging treatment consist of the procedures such as hyaluronic acid injection, PRP and mesotherapy that the patient’s own cells or heterogenous materials are used. The spider web technique, that is used in order to lift the face through threads placed into the subcutaneous tissues, can be preferred in the recent years because it enhances the synthesis of collagen and elastin among the tissues. Laser systems, radiofrequency systems, and high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technologies are the other methods that are applied in order to achieve the desired healthy and energetic appearance through the use of medical devices. The best treatment method for the patient should be determined after a medical examination made by a specialist physician and in accordance with the patient’s preferences, physical characteristics and the level of the signs of aging as well as the physician’s advices.

What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles or lines that appear like wrinkles result from a decrease in the synthesis of collagen and elastin that gives the skin its brightness and elasticity depending on the effect of time and aging in the skin texture. Repetitive facial expressions such as frowning and smiling as well as muscular movements cause a loss in elasticity of the skin texture especially on the face. Thus, fine lines begin to appear on the skin. These fine lines affect the deeper layers of the skin in time and lead to wrinkles that are the most visible signs of the aging. Wrinkles are most frequently seen on the forehead, eye contours, lips, jowl, nose and neck because these areas are highly affected by muscular movements and facial expressions. Repair of the skin texture and removal of the wrinkles cannot be achieved by the patient’s body. The individuals, who have a psychological and aesthetic concern due to fine lines and wrinkles on the skin, can seek a medical aesthetic solution to reverse the negative effects of time.
