Do you rely on thick foundation or concealer to hide your blemishes or brown marks on your skin?
Many of us have brown spots or marks on our skin which can sometimes cause concerns about our appearance.
Skin aging caused by long-term sun exposure, facial blemishes due to excessive pigmentation and, in general, imperfections caused by melanin, are more and more common, especially among Asians.
Types of pigmentation
Brown spots, liver spots, age spots, sun spots, freckles, lentigos, or senile/solar lentigines are associated with premature aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.These marks range in colour from light brown to red or black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms, decollete and forehead, and the head if bald. Most are harmless, but all are aging and may be unattractive.
Café au lait, Nevus of Ota and other pigmented birthmarks are localised areas of increased pigmentation in the skin, which are present at birth.
Melasma, also called ‘chloasma’, is a common skin condition of adults in which light to dark brown or greyish pigmentation develops, mainly on the face. The name comes from melas, the Greek word for black. Although it can affect both genders and any race, it is more common in women and people with darker skin-types who live in sunny climates. Melasma usually becomes more noticeable in the summer and improves during the winter months. It is not an infection, it is not contagious and it is not due to an allergy.
How do we treat pigmentations?
Professional chemical peels: These are solutions applied to the face which cause gentle exfoliation of the superficial layers of the skin. This stimulates skin regeneration and helps lighten pigmentation and improves texture. Peels used to treat pigmentation include glycolic acid, lactic acid and trichloroacetic acid.
SilkPeel Dermalinfusion : It is a procedure in which the outermost layer of dead skin cells is mechanically exfoliated, carrying with it some of the pigment-containing cells. This is coupled with dermalinfusion of Brightening Solution which features the revolutionary Lumixyl peptide, effectively lighten up uneven pigmentation and dark spots. About 8-10 sessions may be needed bimonthly, and thereafter maintenance sessions.
Pigment Laser - Fotona QX MAX’s Q-switched Nd:YAG laser works by destroying the pigment in the skin without the need for excision. The laser produces short pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be selectively absorbed by melanin in the lesion. These melanin are subsequently broken into smaller particles, which are then removed by the body’s own immune system. There is minimal discomfort with no downtime. Multiple sessions are needed and treatment intervals may vary from 1-4 weeks.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a new form of regenerative medicine that utilized your own blood, where the platelet rich plasma component is extracted, concentrated and reintroduced to rejuvenate the skin. The concentrated platelets in PRP contain tremendous amounts of bioactive proteins and growth factors, which promote tissue repair, capillary formation and collagen production. PRP is effective for treating pigmentations, as well as fine lines, enlarged pores, acne scars and saggy skin on face and neck.
Some pigmentations especially melasma can be worsen by sun exposure. Broad-spectrum fragrance-free sunscreens, with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or greater and a high ultraviolet A (UVA) star-rating, should be applied daily throughout the year.
Skin peels are not something new to mankind, they have existed for over 3000 years. Ancient Egyptian women, with Cleopatra being the most notable one, used to bathe in sour milk and rub their faces with fermented grape skins to smoothen the skin and enhance their beauty. These were in fact the earliest forms of what is known as lactic and glycolic peel today respectively.
Chemical peels, along with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers, complete the perfect triumvirate needed for the ideal facial rejuvenation. It is not enough to just remove the wrinkles, and improve the shape and contour of the face, we also have to improve the condition of the skin and to rejuvenate it back to an earlier time.
What can chemical peels do for you?
Some of the ideal areas to treat are: the face, décolletage area as well as the backs of the hands.
These unique non-invasive peels can give dramatic results for:
Dull lifeless skin
Ageing, sun damaged skin
Fine lines and wrinkles
How does it work?
The skin is the largest organ in the body. It takes as much as 28 days to fully regenerate, with the tough outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, acting as an impenetrable barrier protecting the body from injury, infection, pollution and the ever more harmful sun rays. It also however acts as an effective barrier which can not be penetrated by any of the expensive over the counter creams.
Over the years, many past events like severe sunburn or acne scarring will remain on the outer layer of the skin. As the skin takes so long to regenerate, the thicker skin with blemishes are never removed completely, and the fresh new skin underneath has never given a chance to come to the surface. These result in lackluster and uneven skin tone.
With the process of peeling we are speeding up the regeneration of the skin, and by wiping out some of these blemishes, we are allowing the healthy new skin to come to the surface. In addition, the process of chemical peeling induces new collagen to rush up to the surface of the skin. A good analogy is that of pruning a withering rose, achieving a subsequent new growth and fresh beauty.
How long does a chemical peel procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes on average and involves gently applying the special peel solutions to the treatment areas.
Does it hurt?
With the superficial peels, the only discomfort is that of a stinging which can be reduced with the use of numbing cream prior to the procedure. A cooling fan can be applied to the face during the treatment for the ultimate comfort.
Is it safe?
All of the peels we use are considered as superficial peels, which are very safe and the clinician is always in control. Post treatment instruction will be explained and should be followed to minimize complications such as hyperpigmentation. Sun block should be used regularly throughout the course of treatments.
Age, stress, hormonal imbalance as well as sun exposure, tobacco and a careless lifestyle are all factors involved in skin aging. At any age, skin aging is accentuated by the loss of luminosity on your face.
Your complexion dulls, lines develop, the texture of your skin is uneven, wrinkles and lines appear. All these parameters create dark areas on your face and your skin gradually loses its ability to reflect light.
As far as oxidative stress is concerned, the balance between detoxifying molecules (antioxidants) and toxic elements (oxidants) can be disturbed by many external factors. The excess of oxidants attacks the skin decreasing its elasticity and tonicity.
Thanks to Teosyal PureSense Redensity [I], it is now possible to restore this balance by adequately nourishing the skin from within.
What is Puresense Luminosity?
This is a new treatment concept between dermal filler injections and mesotherapy. By injecting Teosyal Puresense Redensity [I] into the dermal (deeper) layer of your skin, it helps to redensify your skin deep down and restores its ability to reflect light. This innovation provides uniform and totally natural result.
Teosyal PureSense Redensity [I] is a unique hyaluronic acid-based skin enhancer which prevents premature skin aging, restores skin density and maintains skin glow. It is an exclusive formula designed from a rigorous selection of non-allergenic ingredients:
1. Hyaluronic acid - for dermal deep rehydration and redensification.
2. Dermo-Restructuring Complex - combines natural components all synergically involved in redensifying the dermis and
providing antioxidant protection: 3 potent antioxidants, 2 minerals, 1 vitamin and 8 amino acids.
3. Lidocaine - anaesthetic effect for more injection comfort.
Who should go for this treatment?
Puresense Luminosity is recommended for those with:
Dull and tired skin
Loss of tone and radiance
Wrinkles and lines
Which areas can be treated?
This treatment is suitable for the face, in particular the under eyes and lips, and neck area.
How often do I need to have this treatment?
We recommend 3 sessions at 3 week intervals for optimal result, then 2 to 3 sessions per year to maintain the effects of the treatment.
You may choose to alternate or combine with hyaluronic acid dermal filler injections or other cosmetic procedures.
Is the treatment painful? Is it safe?
The treatment is well tolerated after some numbing cream prior to the procedure and the use of very fine needles during the treatment. It is safe for all skin types.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
There will be redness and swelling for half a day, rarely minor bruising which may take about a week to resolve. These can be covered with make-up after the treatment.
Microdermabrasion is probably not be considered by most of us as a recent advancement in the filed of cosmetic science but it is certainly one of the most popular procedures. It essentially buffs away the outer surface of the skin using an abrasive tool in order to reveal the younger, fresher skin that lies underneath.
SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM is a new format of microdermabrasion that provides non-invasive exfoliation and the delivery of skin specific topical solutions under pressure. Unlike traditional technologies that rely on messy crystals or other irritating particles, SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM's diamond tip head evenly abrades the skin, exfoliating damaged skin cells while delivering targeted topical solutions deep into the skin.
What is the procedure of the treatment?
After cleansing and preparing your skin, your therapist will perform the procedure by making several passes down your neck and across your face with the specialized handpiece. Each pass abrades away dead skin, thoroughly and evenly exfoliating while infusing the treatment solution into the skin. In just under an hour, the treatment is over with results that last for weeks. Your skin immediately looks clearer and brighter and definitely feels smoother.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTM is for you if you have one of these conditions:
Uneven pigmentation, dark spots
Cystic and pustular types of acne
Dehydrated skin and fine lines
Dull and tired skin
Your doctor will choose one or more of the specialized Pro Infusions, formulated to address a variety of skin conditions. The SilkPeelTM infuses these products deep into the skin where they are most effective. The solution doesn't just sit on top of your skin like a lotion or cream would, instead the patented SilkPeelTM handpiece deeply delivers the vitamins, antioxidants and other therapeutic ingredients that your skin needs most.
Does it hurt? How long is the downtime?
No, the treatment is comfortable and not painful. It can be done without any local anaesthesia. There is no downtime after the treatment, that is why it is a perfect lunch-time facial.
Besides facial skin, what other body parts can be treated with SilkpeelTM ?
The handpiece is gentle enough to treat dull and stained lips. With SilkpeelTM DermalinfusionTMBody Wand, it can be used to body parts like hands, feet, neck, décolletage, chest and back, improving the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite, acne and other skin imperfections.
This clinically-proven concept of skin resurfacing can be used by itself or as a combined therapy with lasers and other light treatments.
