The best ways to treat spots and pigmentation

Hydrafacial

So popular that a session is performed every 15 seconds around the world because it targets many of the most common skin care concerns such as dehydration and signs of aging with little side effects. It is a moisturizing treatment that cleans pores. Served nationwide in licensed professional medical facilities, the treatment includes four steps: cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and moisturizing the skin using serums that seep into the pores using the end of hydraPeel, a pen-like device.

 

What happens during the hydrafacial session?

Hydrafacial begins cleansing by removing dead cells and excess sebum from the skin. Next, a combination of salicylic and glycolic acids is used to disperse any dirt and oils that clog pores. After that, hydraPeel tip is used mainly to remove blackheads, dirt, oils and impurities while the hydration, tension and nutrition serum is applied to the skin simultaneously.

 

 benefits

Hydrafacial treatment can improve the skin in several ways. Its many benefits include more moisture, bright, vibrant, and clear it. In addition, signs of aging can also be improved.

“After treatment, you’ll want to let your dermis rest and absorb all the benefits of the treatment session for the rest of the day,” says Dr Marmore. “You can use make-up the next morning and resume your normal routine.

How often does a patient need a hydrafacial session?

Although the skin looks soft and radiant after treatment, treatment is not a fast solution. Its purpose is to improve the appearance of the dermis overtime.

These innovative treatments are specifically designed to target areas of the face that suffer from hyperpigmentation in the most effective way. At the basic level, products work by preventing melanin production in the body, and preventing dark spots before they appear.

 

What can these products handle?

Treatments are equally effective for patients with discoloration due to acne scars or pimples, as well as patients with hyperpigmentation as a result of previous treatments such as chemical peels or skin lasers.

 

Cosmelan vs. Dermamelan

Cosmelan, dermamelan’s predecessor, is one of the most effective skin lightening treatments in the world. Dermamelan’s highly anticipated launch came with more effective expectations.

When tested in clinical trials, Dermamelan produced results that erase nearly 70% of impurities and dark spots on the face.

 

SCARLET S

Scarlet S is a new technique that provides radio frequencies directly to the dermis through microneedle electrodes. Microneedle technology targets skin problems by treating the dermis where collagen is produced and released. Thermal energy in the form of radio frequency activity is delivered directly to the dermis to stimulate collagen production and enhance tissue strength. It is used to stimulate collagen formation to improve sagging skin, wrinkles, acne scars, large pores and stretching of the skin.

How does Scarlet S treatment work?

Scarlet S uses radiofrequency radio frequency (RF) technology to coagulate skin collagen and skin elasticity. Electrocoagulation helps to regenerate existing skin layers, produce new collagen and increase skin elasticity, improving skin tightening and texture.

 

How many sessions ?

Scarlet S treatment offers optimal treatment outcomes for most patients by resorting to just one session. The treatment is very comfortable and attractive to patients. More treatments give more results. It is recommended to undergo 3 sessions during the year to rejuvenate the skin.

 

How long does the treatment take?

Scarlet S treatment takes about 20 minutes for the face and 10 minutes for the neck. The time required to treat the body depends on the size and condition of the area to be treated. Scarlet S technology is generally time-efficient compared to other technologies.

 

Does the patient need a break after the session?

Scarlet S treatment does not require any follow-up or rest system as most patients return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. This is because it is the safest treatment in RF systems and does not cause bleeding or sensitivity as with other microneedle treatments.

 

What is Scarlet S technology about?

This technique aims to tighten the face, lift the chin and neck and also tighten the skin of the body, Scarlet S technology improves common problems such as skin tissue problems, pores, aging, scars and pigmentation.

 

When do the results appear, and how long do they last?

Mesotherapy treatments include direct injection of hyaluronic acid into the middle-end (middle layer of skin). It nourishes and rejuvenates the skin by promoting collagen and elastin production and stimulates the skin’s metabolism.

 

How does mesotherapy work?

The procedure involves very small superficial injections of hyaluronic acid directly into the skin and the middle-class (middle layer) this helps to nourish and reactive cells, enhance their activity and stimulate collagen and elastin production. After a session of mesotherapy injections, the skin will look moist, glowing and bright. In order for mesotherapy to be more effective, a cycle of 4-6 sessions is recommended at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks. There may be some superficial swelling and small signs after treatment that will settle in 24-48 hours. This may take a long time around the eye area, so those undergoing this treatment may need a little hospital time.

Multiple microinjections, are given using a very fine needle in the medium layer below the surface of the skin.Thus the goal is to replace the lost hyaluronic acid with age.

 

What can the patient expect after the session?

It is better that you have some time to recover after a mesotherapy session. So he may experience some superficial swelling, which will go away within 24-48 hours. Although these symptoms are rare, possible side effects include some small needle marks that will also go away within a few days. Treatment around the eye area may take longer to stabilize maybe 5 to 7 days.

 

 

Is mesotherapy safe?

Since hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin and is naturally drained as we age, it is perfectly safe to inject the medium layer with this substance, which provides a very effective treatment for skin cell regeneration.

For best results, doctors recommend a course of 4-6 sessions for mesotherapy. Once the recommended cycle ends, the results can last from 12 to 18 months.

 

Retinol peeling

It is a skin exfoliation technique that can help maintain the overall appearance and health of the skin, therfore it is particularly effective on acne-prone skin and has significant anti-aging benefits because retinol can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinol is a form of vitamin A, which encourages the growth of skin cells. Due to its small molecular size, retinol is able to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Since this is where living skin cells are located, retinol, which reaches this level, encourages skin cells to grow and regenerate. Retinol exfoliation can also help open pores and reduce acne outbreaks by allowing the skin to heal.
