Pits & Scars - Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular, non-invasive cosmetic procedures performed today. The skin is instantly rejuvenated by means of mechanical skin exfoliation without the use of chemicals or lasers and it is virtually painless. It offers a modern and effective alternative to chemical and laser peels and can be combined with other treatments to help achieve the desired results. This process is ideal for treating the face and neck and immediately restores smoother looking skin reducing the appearance of superficial wrinkles, scars, sun damage, large pores, acne and age spots. Diamond microdermabrasion is a holistic procedure for modern skin care and is suitable for all skin types, imparting healthier, younger-looking skin to women and men across different age groups. It is a safe and effective treatment that loosens dead skin cells and clogged pores by enabling a controlled removal of epidermal layers at varying depths with virtually no side effects. It also induces collagen stimulation and promotes the production of new cells in the basal layer of the dermis to give the skin an healthy-looking radiant glow.

Pits & Scars - Microneedling

Microneedling treatment involves collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI). It is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device containing 12 fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury.

During micro-needling procedures, this device is used to break down old scar tissue and push skin cell generation. Cell production leads to the creation of new layers of elastin and collagen fiber and leads to improved blood flow in the skin. The device slides along the skin and penetrates upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create tiny needle wounds. The body responds by producing collagen and elastin fibers making the skin fuller, thus reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles.

The Medical Micro-needling improves pits & scar problems including mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks

People usually observe redness and mild swelling for 24–48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. It takes 1-2 weeks for the skin to become smoother and more radiant. Full results will take a few months to appear.

The process begins with cleaning and numbing the skin with a collagen-stimulating product, Vitamin C serum, and/or skin lightener. A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allow for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. The temporary skin inflammation occurs and reduces greatly within a few hours and it may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation and sunscreen can be used to protect the skin. During this time your doctor will advise the minimal use of makeup.

Some of the known benefits of Medical Micro-needling are:

  • It improves topical cream effectiveness and penetration
  • It stimulates blood circulation and collagen production
  • The needles are non-allergenic and cost-effective compared to other resurfacing procedures.
  • It works on all skin types and can treat the scalp, face, and body, including skin around the eyes, mouth and neck.

Microneedling is known to improve, but not limited to; many aspects of the skin including skin texture and regenerates tissue, it also reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scars, the size of pores, and the appearance of stretch marks
