    What can be expected during the Vampire Stem Cell Lift?

    Read More

    This treatment is performed by a Skin Renewal Doctor and combines Dermapen Skin Needling with powerful serums that are worked into the skin, whilst the needling process is continued.

    The skin needling procedure is 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. Specific serums are selected prior to commencing with the treatment, which are worked into the skin, to allow for deeper penetration and more efficacy.

    Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic or local block is applied to the client's skin to ensure a virtually painless experience.

    What is Demapen Skin Needling?

    Read More

    Dermapen skin needling treatments result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin and is a great treatment for all skin types especially patients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling.

    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, resulting in new collagen synthesis.

    The amount of treatments for dramatic improvement will depend on the patient's age (older skin takes longer to regenerate and heal), the condition of the skin, the conditions treated and frequency of treatments.

    During the treatment, the practitioner gently moves the Dermapen over the client's skin to create minute 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.

    What are the benefits of adding powerful serums to the skin needling procedure?

    Read More

    There is no downtime or pain associated with adding the benefits of Mesotherapy serums to the Dermapen treatment.

    When the powerful serums are used in conjunction with the skin needling it has the ability to penetrate deeper into the lower levels of the skin, where it can be effective in treating facial rejuvenation.

    The results include instant improvement of skin hydration, due to hyaluronic acid and the skin will continue to improve as the days pass and the serums get to work in lightening pigmentation marks, and supporting the skin's overall rejuvenation.

    The growth factors within the serums stimulate the fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the major support structure for the skin. If one can keep one's skin firm and taught with collagen, then the sagging that takes place over time can be contained as tighter skin supports the soft tissues of the face and body.

    After the treatment a TA Meso Serum is applied, this is a tyrosinase inhibitor which prevents formation of new pigmentation and prevents post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

    Read More
    • The Dermapen device has sharp needles as new needles are used at each treatment;
    • Disposable needles (which are only used once) eliminate risk of cross contamination.
    • Needles are injected at a straight angle instead of rolling in at an angle - as with skin rolling devices.
    • Induces more micro injections per square centimeter, resulting in a more intense treatment.
    • Needle depth can be adjusted from 0.3mm - 2.5 mm thus allowing for treatments to be tailored to individual patient needs.
    • More controlled and uniform treatment giving more consistent results.
    • Less pain and redness for patient.
    • Ability to treat hard to reach areas such around the nose and eyes.
    • This treatment is ideal for treating wrinkles, smoker's lines around the lips, skin tightening and rejuvenation, large pores, stretch marks, scars and surgical scars.

    What can be expected after the treatment?

    Read More

    Due to the intensity of the treatment, the patient's skin will be red, with potential mild swelling for a few hours after the treatment. Redness usually subsides within 24-48 hours after treatment and it is advised to not apply make-up on the open skin to prevent infection. Breathable foundation such as Lycogel or Oxygenetics can be applied to accelerate healing and cover intense redness.

    Skin Renewal Tip:

    The new concept today is to start with rejuvenation treatments early so as to and avoid the inevitable ageing.
