Often our skin doesn’t just show one effect of aging and sun damage but multiple effects. There can be colour imperfections with diffuse redness or broken capillaries and brown discolouration or freckling. There can also be effects from the lack of collagen which include skin looseness, wrinkles and sagging skin. Other effects can be seen relating to your particular skin type or hereditary traits which include Rosacea, congestion, open pores, pimples and acne scarring.
Here are some of the concerns 3D Skin Rejuvenation treatment can treat:
Rejuven8 Cosmetix offers a broad effective range of combination treatment as well as stand-alone treatments that can improve specific concerns but often there are several concerns. 3D rejuvenation treatments combine three highly effective technologies to improve all of those concerns in one unique treatment.
Cutera’s medical grade Infra-red Titan technology can be safely used to tighten the skin, improving skin tone and firmness. The areas we most often treat include the cheeks, jaw line, under the chin and neck. Titan uses a safe, infrared light to heat the skin well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction resulting in tighter skin. During the procedure the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece. After the procedure new collagen growth results in further tightening with the improvement of loose skin, folds and lines. When used on the face, TITAN stimulates the collagen in the skin which results in a “Non- Surgical face lift” – Amazing!
The Laser Genesis procedure uses non-invasive laser technology to safely and effectively treat fine wrinkles and diffuse redness, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, brown pigmentation, Rosacea and scars. By heating the deeper layers of the skin it creates a ‘thermal injury’ that results in the stimulation of new collagen. Collagen is essential to give the skin its elasticity and plumpness. Laser Genesis also helps breakdown scar tissue and reverses the effects of abnormal skin healing.
IPL is a light based treatment to rejuvenate the skin and even out colours such as brown and red. An IPL treatment improves the appearance of Rosacea, sun damaged and aged skin, brown age spots & freckling, as well as reducing redness and flushing. The IPL treatment uses specific light parameters to improve the texture, and colour of the skin with very little downtime. IPL uses light in a way to restore your whole face gradually and naturally.
3D Skin Rejuvenation treatments are an innovative combination of Titan, IPL and Laser Genesis to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women of all ages. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, brown pigmentation, freckling, fine wrinkles and loose sagging skin.
There is a minimal amount of discomfort involved when undergoing 3D Skin Rejuvenation Treatments. Before the actual treatment you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturisers and in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated the day before the treatment. You will be given the option of taking pain relief medication and a medication to relax you during the treatment. Your cosmetic practitioner will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
The first part of the treatment uses the Titan infra-red technology. The handpiece is placed onto the skin of the lower face and neck and is rotated in circular movements while a pulse of deeply penetrating heat is passed through the outer skin to get to the deep tissues. These pulses are placed in specific sections of the lower face and neck to create bands of collagen that will lift and tighten loose sagging skin in those areas.
After the Titan the next part of the treatment is the Laser Genesis treatment. Clients often describe this treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin.
After the Laser Genesis, the next part of the treatment is the IPL treatment. IPL light is flashed onto the skin and you will notice a bright light which will feel like a hot elastic band has been flicked onto the skin. The eyes are protected by sticky eye guards or goggles during the entire treatment. After the treatment the skin feels hot and slightly stingy like mild sun-burn but this settles over a few minutes and your cosmetic practitioner will apply cold compresses and soothing gels to the skin to help relieve any post treatment sensations.
After your 3D Skin Rejuvenation treatment there is usually mild redness lasting less than 24 hours in most people. On rare occasions the redness may last for up to three days. Mild bruising is possible when large broken capillaries are treated but this usually clears very quickly. Mild swelling of the face for 1-2 days occasionally occurs in severely sun-damaged skin due to reduced quality of connective tissue around the blood vessels. Pigmented areas may darken after the treatment to look like pepper has been sprinkled onto the skin.
Each 3D Skin Rejuvenation treatment will leave the skin looking fresh with a more even skin tone and improvement in brown pigmentation and diffuse redness with a smoother healthier appearance. You will notice an immediate lift on the lower face, jawline and neck where skin will appear tighter however this is usually a temporary effect from trauma created at the time of the treatment. New collagen will start to form in 6-8 weeks and at 12 weeks after the 3D Skin Rejuvenation treatment you will notice increased tightening and lifting of the skin on the lower face, jawline and neck. Each individual treatment will give you a result and a further treatment should not be done for 3 months. As this is a unique single treatment to correct multiple concerns it is both cost effective and convenient and should be done 1-2 times per year to maximise and maintain the improvement seen.
3D Skin Rejuvenation treatments are performed by Dermal Therapists, Laser Technicians, Paramedical Aestheticians and Cosmetic Registered Nurses.
