Recommended Treatments for Pigmentation

Pigmentation is a common problem and can leave your skin looking dull and uneven. Pigmentation is the presence of excess and uneven melanin in the skin. It occurs when melanocyte cells become damaged due to sun exposure, skin trauma, inflammation (acne), smoke, pollution or hormones. It often appears on the face, neck and décolletage. Thankfully, with the right active ingredients and skin treatments, fading pigmentation is possible.

SKIN NEEDLING 45min – 299.00

Discover the power of Skin Needling for Pigmentation.

Skin needling, also known as microneedling, offers a dynamic solution for pigmentation concerns. Through controlled micro-injuries, this treatment triggers collagen production and cell turnover, effectively diminishing issues like dark spots, sun-damage and hyperpigmentation. It goes further by amplifying the penetration of targeted brightening ingredients, elevating overall skin tone. Multiple sessions of skin needling work cohesively to reveal a luminous, more uniform complexion.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR SKIN NEEDLING

What is Dermapen™ treatment?
Dermapen is an advanced skin needling technique. Dermapen treatments effectively improve skin rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and a variety of scars. This technology uses multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin. When moved across the surface of your skin it stimulates natural collagen production and creates fine channels within the skin. These channels carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layers of the skin.

Is Dermapen™ Painful?
Dermapen uses very fine needles and is relatively comfortable. Minimum needle depths are basically painless, and for depths over 0.5mm a mild topical anaesthetic may be applied by the client prior to visiting the salon. After the treatment the face will show visible redness but there is no downtime and you can easily cover with a breathable foundation and continue with your daily activities.

How does Dermapen™ Skin needling work?
The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, abrasions and other physical trauma. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin destroys old damaged tissue such as acne scarring and wrinkles and replaces it with new fresh healthy collagen. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers a whole cascade of events that result in new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin down the line. A great treatment for all skin types especially clients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling.

Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile Dermapen needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 20 minutes for the entire face and neck and up to 60 minutes for the body depending on the size of the problem area. This is a great treatment for stretch marks and sagging/crepey skin. During the treatment, the practitioner gently moves the DermaPen over the client’s skin to create miniscule sub-cutaneous channels. This is perceived by the body as a “mini wound” which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which is all part of the healing process. This new fresh collagen remodels over time and thus one can expect moderate skin tightening of the treated area down the line. Sagging skin, stretch marks, pores and acne scars are all improved upon.
When should one start Dermapen™ Skin Needling for anti-ageing?

Dermapen Skin Needling are more effective than ever and treatments should be started sooner when the skin has a much greater ability to rejuvenate. If wrinkles are left and they become ingrained and scar like they are much more difficult to treat. It is also a great idea to start treatments to prevent the dreaded sagging that takes place with ageing around the brow, jawline and neck.

Is Dermapen Skin Needling safe?
The needle only penetrates through the epidermis and does not remove it thus the skin’s natural protective barrier remains intact. The pierced epidermis rapidly heals in a matter of hours. After the procedure, the treated skin has the appearance of moderate sunburn which improves over the next 24 to 48 hours. Breathable make up can be worn immediately after the treatment. The treatment is therefore not only very effective but also very safe with very few (to no) side effects or complications.

How many Dermapen treatments do I need?
Everyone’s skin is different so we do recommend coming in for a consultation to see if this is the right treatment for you. Benefits of the Dermapen can be seen after just one treatment. It is recommended that 3- 5 treatments, spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart, are performed for maximum results. In cases where a more aggressive treatment schedule is needed such as acne scar revision, a greater number of treatments may be necessary for maximum results.

As a general guide line we recommend the following:
Rejuvenation: 4 -6 treatments (4 weeks apart) Acne Scarring: 4-6 Treatments (6 weeks apart)

Post Treatment Care
A good skin care regime is paramount in getting great results. Therefore in-between and post Dermapen treatments ensure to keep you skin hydrated and protected, we recommend using a day and night cream to repair and nourish your skin as well as a high SPF sunblock during the day to ensure you are protected against harmful UVA and UVB rays throughout the day.
Your therapist will recommend the appropriate aftercare for your skin to reach optimum results.
