A dermaroller is a device that is handled in the hand and has microneedles on it. Before beginning the treatment, the specialists at Bodycinix will numb the region that will be treated using a gel that is applied topically and has a numbing effect. During the procedure, the dermaroller's needles make holes in the dermis. These holes let growth factors and cytokines escape. In turn, the growth factors and cytokines set off a healing cascade by turning on collagen, elastin, and new blood vessel growth. This results in the healing of an injury. Dry needling sessions are usually done at regular intervals. During the procedure, we at Bodyclinix put serums on the area being worked on, which are made especially for your skin problems. These serums include growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and skin boosters for antiaging; vitamin C serums and skin enhancers for facial rejuvenation and gleam; vitamin E and rosehip oils for stretch marks; and vitamin A serums and skin enhancers for acne scars (elastin and collagen containing serums for acne scars).
ResurFx lumens fractional Co2 laser
The Lumenis ResurFX is the latest improvement in non-ablative, fractional laser technology. It can help treat wrinkles, stretch marks, and acne scars, among other skin problems. Non-ablative refers to the fact that it does not kill or remove the skin cells, while fractional refers to the fact that it only affects a certain proportion or fraction of the skin.
When compared to the CO2 laser, which can leave patients with peeling, crusting, and possibly swelling for many days after treatment, the ResurFX has the advantage of being able to give great results with much less time off. ResurFX may need to be used more than once to get the best results, but this will depend on the disease and the results that are wanted.
Because it is a non-ablative laser, it does not remove or injure any of the top layers of skin while doing its job of encouraging the production of collagen in the skin. When there is more collagen in the skin, the appearance of the skin is improved. It becomes more even and young. ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means that the laser is put on the skin in very small spots instead of covering the whole surface. In order to generate good effects, ResurFX only has to be applied to the skin once. This shortens the overall duration of the therapy. Last but not least, because it is a fractional non-ablative laser, it takes a lot less time for the patient to get better after surgery.
The experts at Bodyclinix will normally apply a topical anaesthetic prior to beginning a laser skin rejuvenation treatment using the ResurFX system. Since the ResurFX laser doesn't do ablative surgery, most people say that their sessions are very pleasant. In addition, to provide comfort to the treated areas, we use a cooling air system that blows soothing cold air on them. The treatment may take up to twenty minutes or perhaps longer, depending on the size of the region that is being treated.
What to expect: After a ResurFX laser skin resurfacing procedure, patients often feel some pain, and they may also have some redness and swelling. After surgery, patients can go back to doing what they normally do the next day. The time needed to recover is generally brief, and the discomfort is minimal. It's possible that you'll get some redness, swelling, and moderate irritation comparable to what you'd get from a light sunburn, but these symptoms should go away in just a few days at most. It is important to stay out of the sun both before and after treatment and to use a sunscreen with at least 30 milligrams of sun protection factor (SPF) on a daily basis following the operation. As soon as the wound has completely healed, you should start using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 every day to assist in providing long-term protection for your skin.
