Skin Rejuvenation for Pigmenation
Launch Price €99 (30 minutes)
Our skin contains melanin to give its natural colour. Due to a variety of reasons, this melanin can become concentrated on one area of the skin causing pigmentation issues. Skin pigmentation can be a problem for many people, of all ages and skin types. Pigmentation has always been a hard skin condition to treat. Most treatments to target pigmentation or age spots work by taking off the upper layers of the skin to ‘buff’ away the pigment.
Skin Rejuvenation for Pigmentation is a much more targeted skin treatment. It works not by lightening the skin or peeling off the layers, but specifically targets the pigment using light to break up the pigment! Before deciding on a course of Skin Rejuvenation for Pigmentation treatments with us, you will need to have a consultation with one of our highly trained skin therapists who will discuss the treatment with you and ensure we offer you the best treatment plan to target your specific skin concerns and deliver results!
Skin Rejuvenation for Pigmentation skin treatment incorporates a Dermalogica skin treatment. We do this to ensure we treat the skin internally and externally for maximum results but with maximum comfort. Maximum results in minimum time with no downtime needed!
How it works?
Each pulse of energy from the machine is designed to produce specific light wavelengths which target the skin cells containing an excessive concentration of melanin. Each of these pulses are targeted so they do not affect the surrounding skin tissue. This energy blasts the melanin to break it down using heat energy from light.
Over the coming weeks as your skin naturally sheds, you will see the pigment become darker as the broken down pigment is pushed up closer to the surface of the skin before naturally shedding as tiny flakes. This advanced skin treatment gives unrivalled results that products alone cannot deliver!
What are the benefits to Skin Rejuvenation for Pigmentation compared to using products?
By using light energy to target skin cells in the dermis of the skin, far deeper than standard ingredients can target, we are targeting the melanin directly. Skin Rejuvenation for Pigmentation targets the melanin deep in the skin, treating the skin from the inside out. Most standard professional treatments and homecare products treat pigmentation externally but while doing this we also affect the surrounding skin meaning many of these treatments give reduced results compared to Skin Rejuvenation for Pigmentation as they are milder so they do not damage the surrounding healthy tissue. Super Skin Rejuvenation does not affect the surrounding tissue so we can use a more targeted, intense approach for those who want visible results!
How many treatments will I need?
Your therapist will advise you during your consultation of how many treatments she would expect you to need. Treatments are completed every 4 weeks.
Do I need to plan time off for the treatment? Are there any side effects?
You do not need to take time off work but you do need to be aware that your pigment will become darker before shedding off in tiny flakes. Only the visible pigment in your skin will become darker and this is simply a darker colour of pigment as it comes up closer to the skins surface before being shed. For many people this is not an issue, for others they chose to use perhaps a full coverage foundation during this time so it is not noticeable.
Will the treatment hurt?
The treatment does not hurt but there is a level of discomfort. The light energy is creating heat in the skin so you will feel the area become warm but your therapist will manage the treatment based on your comfort levels. She will discuss how you are feeling on each area and move on once you are feeling too much heat in the area. The heat does not hold in the area, the only thing you may feel later in the day following the treatment is a slight itch. However, because we complete a Dermalogica skin treatment as part of the treatment, your therapist will apply cooling and calming products to your skin as part of the treatment ensuring you are fully comfortable. This slight level of discomfort is fully manageable and for anyone with a real concern regarding pigmentation, this slight discomfort is more than worth it for the results you will achieve.
What do I need to do before my first treatment?
Before starting your first treatment you will need to complete a consultation with your Skin Therapist, during which time they will also complete a patch test on your skin. This patch test will give you the opportunity to experience how the treatment would feel for you so you are fully aware of the sensation before deciding on a course of treatments. During this consultation, you can fully discuss the treatment with your therapist and she will answer any questions you have while devising a treatment plan for you to ensure you receive maximum results.
How long will the treatment take?
Our Bespoke Skin Rejuvenation Pigmentation Treatment takes 30 minutes.
Post Treatment Care
Your therapist will discuss recommendations following the treatment and for between sessions ensuring to concentrate on skin health and how to reduce any risk factors that may encourage pigmentation issues in the future.
