Restoration

   

SCARS DUE TO SURGERY, BURNS OR ACNE

At The Artist's Touch, we offer the latest pigmentation techniques and technology to camouflage scars matching the client's natural skin tone.


Areola Repigmentation

For Mastectomy or breast reconstruction patients , we can recreate a realistic areola and 3 dimensional nipple . Using an artist's many years of training and experience in color theory and anatomy we will duplicate the client's natural skin color and use light and shadow to recreate the complete natural breast.

COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY

THE ARTIST'S TOUCH is happy to announce COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY with Réjuvapen which stimulates the skin's natural healing, increasing the production of collagen and elastin. The combination of controlled trauma to the dermis and the supply of external agents cause optimal natural collagen and elastin production with increasing circulation to the affected skin. The results are similar to erbium laser resurfacing and can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, stomach.

Micro Needling treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne and surgical scarring, burns, stretch marks, and firms and tightens the skin without causing damage. There is minimal to no downtime.

BENEFITS AND ADVANTAGES OF COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY

  • Cost effective- less expensive than laser, chemical peels, dermabrasion, cosmetic surgery.
  • Skin is thickened, tightened and lifted and elasticity is restored.
  • Safe and suitable for ALL skin types
  • Can be used on anyone of any age.
  • A natural response of Collagen production is induced.
  • Lightens pigmentation spots.
  • No risk of discoloration to the skin.
  • No "downtime" - extremely fast healing time.
  • Can be repeated as often as necessary - once every 4 - 6weeks.
  • No damage to surrounding tissue in the epidermis or dermis.
  • Quick procedure - 1 1/2 hours including anesthesia
  • Almost painless - 2 anesthetics repeatedly used during procedure as needed
  • All areas of the face, neck and body can be treated.
  • Long lasting results - 2 - 10 years or with natural aging.
  • It is a NON-SURGICAL, NON-LASER, NON-PEEL treatment.
  • A relatively low cost treatment with great results and short recovery times.
  • Noticeable results within days and very obvious 3-4 weeks after.
  • After about 3-4 months, full effects are seen.
  • Can be combined with application of Human growth factor serums which are absorbed 70% more.

PROCEDURE:

  1. Topical anesthetic cream is used to keep the patient comfortable during the procedure.
  2. MICRO NEEDLING or COLLAGEN INDUCTION is the process of penetrating the skin at a 90% angle with tiny needles so as not to cause any damage to surrounding tissue. This creates hundreds of miniscule punctures in the skin, prompting the skin to begin its natural healing process.
  3. As the skin attempts to heal itself, it produces COLLAGEN and ELASTIN to bolster the structures of the affected cells.
  4. The treated areas gradually become smoother, firmer, and more radiant as the healing process takes place.
  5. The body also delivers oxygen-rich blood cells to the area, increasing circulation to the affected skin.
  6. Patients should be advised that multiple treatments will be necessary. The number of needling sessions depends on the individual skin condition.
  7. Three or four treatments may be recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may require upward of five treatments.
  8. An interval of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments is typically recommended. *Many practitioners are also doing maintenance treatments at intervals of 6 to 12 months.
  9. The treated areas gradually become smoother, firmer, and more radiant as the healing process takes place.

LASER AND CHEMICAL PEELS VS COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY:

Because it can be performed on all skin colors and types, it is sometimes the preferred treatment over laser as there is no risk of burning the patient.
The problem with lasers and aggressive chemical peels is that the dermis is an extremely complex, highly specialized organ. It may only be 0.2 mm thick but it is our only protection from the environment.

When we have aggressive laser treatments and chemicals peels, over time we thin our epidermis and decrease our dermal papillae which results in inflamed, drier and more wrinkled skin.

NB: We should never damage the epidermis unless the risk of leaving the epidermis intact is greater than the risk of removing it and should try to ensure that the basic architecture of the skin is not altered.

To REJUVINATE the skin and look young, we need a PERFECT EPIDERMIS with natural dermal papillae, good hydration, normal color and normal resilience.

MICRO NEEDLING or COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT) is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure involving microscopic needle incisions in the dermis of the skin which triggers HEALING because the bleeding triggers the release of PGF (PLATELET GROWTH FACTOR) and FGF (FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR) stimulating collagen deposits.

CIT is the only skin rejuvenation treatment to target and regulate 3 key skin cells (keratinocyte, melanocyte and fibroblast) without compromising the integrity of the epidermis.
