DermaPen is a microneedling treatment with minimal recovery time that promotes healing of scars and natural collagen production in skin.
It is an efficient way of removing acne scars and skin imperfections, and the biggest advantage is the enhancement of skin firmness and texture that comes after the treatment. Together with shrinking of skin pores, it also reduces superficial wrinkles and efficiently treats stretch marks.
The mechanism inside DermaPen causes stimulation of healthy collagen, and with small cuts in the skin, it enables the absorption of nutrients into deeper skin layers.
During the procedure you may experience minor discomfort, but a numbing cream is applied onto the skin prior to it in order to minimize possible pain.
Skin redness lasts about a day or two after the treatment and using make-up during that period is not advisable.
Chemical exfoliating treatments remove layers of skin cells in order to reveal a softer, smoother complexion. Chemical peeling can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, enhance appearance of acne-prone skin, improve healing of superficial scars, reduce dark spots, and improve overall skin firmness and texture. Professional surface skin exfoliating provides exfoliation on a deeper level than those that can be done at home, but both complement each other in order to provide complete skin care programme.
They are used for solving skin pigmentation, acne-prone skin and for treating photoaging. Chemical exfoliation makes skin look smoother, younger and healthier.
In order to maximize the efficiency of the treatment, it is important to include the recommended home care alongside professional treatments.
Retinol is a vitamin A derivate. In this type of exfoliation, retinol is used as a main active ingredient that reduces fine lines and helps with many more issues, 3% retinol is used, and it has been clinicaly proven that it helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, acne and improves skin firmness. This treatment can result in visible skin flaking 3-7 days after the procedure. Apart from acne reduction, this exfoliation also helps with skin sagging and leads to a brighter and more even complexion.
HydraFacial acts as an exfoliating technique, providing deep skin cleaning and hydratation. This professional treatment can help treat various skin conditions such as skin dryness, large pores and fine lines.
The treatment helps to improve skin texture, tone and appearance, through deep exfoliation that unclogs pores and removes dead skin cells. That way enables better absorption of serum adjusted for your skin type.
After the treatment you will notice smoothness and glow of your skin, as well as a more even skin tone. Results are visible immediately, without any signs of irritation.
The treatment lasts one hour and you can resume normal activities right away.
Although there should be no redness or skin peeling after the treatment, it is advisable to avoid other exfoliating techniques for the first couple of days after the treatment.
Frequency of HydraFacial treatment depends on your skin type and on advice given by a beautician or doctor. It is recommended to repeat the treatment every 2 to 4 weeks.
Carbon Dioxide Therapy – CO2 or Carboxy Therapy is currently one of the most popular treatments in the beauty industry. This treatment improves skin elasticity, blood circulation, enhances regeneration of existing collagen, stimulates production of new one, and reduces wrinkles.
The amount of CO2 is suddenly increased which in return lowers the blood's pH, i.e. the environment becomes more acid. In order to restore balance, circulation in treated area increases, hemoglobin releases oxygen and picks up carbon dioxide (the Bohr effect).
Intensive cooling of the skin increases circulation in subcutaneous tissue, thus warming up the skin from the inside in order to „defend“ it. Simultaneously, it releases hyaluronic acid into the skin which hydrates it and reduces wrinkles.
Use of CO2 in combination with atomized active ingredients results in contraction and relaxation of capillaries, while cooling and pressure stimulation enhances microcirculation in face and neck area. As a result, active ingredients are absorbed much faster and deeper, and their efficiency is increased when compared to the usual application method.
Achieved results are:
• Anti-aging and lifting – fine lines and wrinkles are being reduced, blood circulation is increased, and production of collagen and elastin is stimulated
• Skin hydratation
• Reduced visibility of circles under the eyes
Radiofrequency warms up the skin and as a result, blood circulation is improved, collagen bonds are broken and new ones are formed. It tightens the skin and makes it smoother.
