Tina has been using them for almost this length of time. Their Jessner’s peels are cited in dermatology text books. There are number of peels which are used to treat aging skin, light acne scarring and skin discolouration (pigmented skin). Tina will match the appropriate peel to your skin problem. Treatments are frequently used in conjunction with other PCA Skin® products.
Thickened, dull, sun damaged New Zealand skin responds particularly well to these peels. PCA Skin® peels are designed to give a light peel after about 3 days. The vast majority of people can return to work after having a peel and make-up can be used after 15 minutes. Peels take 30 minutes and the cost is similar to having a facial, but with much greater effect. A course of 6 peels over 6 months is generally recommended for optimal results.
There should be minimal discomfort during a peel. Deeper peels may cause moderate stinging for a few minutes. You may need to adjust your make-up after having a course of peels. Your skin will look so much better that you may find you require less foundation.See all products
Dermapen™ can be used to tighten, lift and rejuvenate aging, sun damaged skin. It can also be used to remodel acne scars and treat stretch marks. The Dermapen™ uses tiny needles to make channels in the skin which heal using non scarring collagen in a process similar to fractional laser treatments but without the side effects or downtime. The Dermapen™ is relatively painless and treatments are performed after application of an anaesthetic cream.
The small size of the Dermapen™ allows treatment in hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, lips and nose. A general guide to the number of treatments required is:
Rejuvenation 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring 6 treatments 2 weeks apart
Stretch marks approx. 10 treatments 3 weeks apart
Treatments take 30 – 60 minutes. There may be some redness of the treated area for 12 – 48 hours after treatment and possibly light scabbing, but this can be covered using a camouflage make-up. Dermapen™ can be complemented with peels, dermal fillers and botulinum treatment. Check out this Dermapen microneedling 3D animation video.View all services
