Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)

Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a recurring, non-infectious, inflammatory skin condition that affects nearly one third of the population at some stage of their lives.

Affecting people of all ages and skin types, eczema usually beings to appear in very early childhood and continues into adulthood characterised with acute red, dry, itchy and scaly skin that may develop into weeping, bleeding and crusting. The most severe forms of eczema may include the infection of lesions leading on to long-term chronic inflammation. Eczema can appear anywhere on the face or body with unpredictable attacks that last with varying duration.

What causes Eczema?

Triggers for eczema may include:

  • The topical application of stripping face or body cleansers
  • Environmental exposure to cold and wind
  • Physical and emotional stress
  • Medication
  • Skin irritation (woollen garments, friction, allergic reaction)

Eczema Treatment Solutions

Whilst there is no cure for eczema, the Australian Laser and Skin Clinic offers LLLT which assists in the reduction of inflammation, can prevent or reduce the severity and frequency of eczema attacks and aims to provide soothed, repaired and nurtured skin with increased comfort and resiliency.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

LLLT is a medical grade cold laser which can aid in the treatment of eczema in conjunction with your current medical regime, by promoting rapid cell production, increasing immunity and repairing the damaged areas without heat or discomfort. LLLT can reduce inflammation, stabilise stinging or itching and promote cellular renewal to provide strength and relief to swollen and dry eczema outbreaks.
