Elbow Rejuvenation

As the elbows age, the following main changes will occur:

  •  Pigmentation / sun damage
  •  Aging of Skin
  •  Elbow wrinkles

So the elbows  first need to be assessed to work out which changes are most important to treat.

Pigmentation / sun damage

As we age, especially those with lighter skin tones, we get more sun damage on our necks. We get more freckles, solar lentigos and background actinic damage.

These problems are best treated with laser / IPL to improve mainly the colour, but also the texture

Prevention of these problems is important, with sun avoidance and sunscreen. This can be challenging in the Australian climate

Elbow skin aging

Elbow skin goes through the normal process of skin aging, where the skin thins and becomes less elastic. The texture becomes less smooth, with more fine lines and wrinkles. These issues may  be treated with skin boosters, PRP or with fractional laser.

Elbow Wrinkles

Elbow wrinkles really bother some patients.

These elbow wrinkles may be treated with fractional laser, skin boosters, dermal fillers and PRP
