Pore size increases as we age and is of concern to many people especially when increased sebum production leads to blackheads. Also as we age we reduce the amount of collagen that we produce and the skin becomes saggy. This starts from our early 30s and, for women, becomes considerably worse after the menopause. Added to this, sun exposure, stress, smoking, alcohol and processed foods all increase the breakdown of collagen in the skin.
The melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells in the skin, also get damaged over the years, especially by sun exposure and pigment spots appear on the skin. This loss of uniformity of the skin adds to the aged appearance.
As we get older it is also harder to stimulate the skin to produce collagen so we need to have effective treatments that not only stimulate collagen production but deliver the ‘building blocks’ and other stimulatory products to the level in the skin where they are most needed.
The Nanopore Micro-needling device is the next generation on from Dermaroller and Dermapen. The rapidity of the micro-punctures and the fact that the needles do not vibrate means that no anaesthetic cream is required and the number of pulses per second is increased to 150. This means that we get 900 micro-punctures per seconds, making the treatment very quick, only taking about 8 minutes to do the full face.
The recovery after a treatment is also considerably reduced. The fact that the device is used to push the active ingredients into the skin (mesotherapy) means that the results are even better. A mask that compliments the mesotherapy solution can then also be used.
A course of 3, one month apart is often recommended.
All of the conditions, bar the hair loss, require the body to produce collagen. The mesotherapy cocktail contains the building blocks and products appropriate for the condition they are treating.
Developed by dermatological and pharmaceutical specialist Dr Serrano, the revolutionary nano-technology uses ‘encapsulated’ active ingredients such as Retinol which allows it to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Because of the nano effect, this is the equivalent of using ten times the strength of the active ingredient working where it is most needed beneath the skin, yet without the aggressive side effects on the skin surface.
The redness on the face has often subsided within a few hours. If it persists mineral makeup can be used. Treatment on the neck and body tend to stay red for a bit longer. Depending on the strength of the products used after the treatment there may be peeling for up to a week.
Katie, Charlie, Jade, Amy and Harriet all advise and carry out the Nanopore treatments. Dr Ros Debenham may also recommend this as a treatment.
Patients can begin to see results from as early as 1 month with the final result being at about 3 months following the last treatment
Nanopore mesotherapy treatments are customised to your concerns and your skin’s needs. Using cosmeceutical grade skin care and continued maintenance treatments will improve and maintain results for longer.
You will have a consultation for anyone considering Nanopore or other treatments. You will be required to fill out a medical form to rule out any conditions that might contraindicate a treatment. The vast majority of healthy people, who are not pregnant or breastfeeding are suitable.
Redness that usually only lasts a few hours and if certain products are used afterwards there may be some peeling.
Some areas can be a little uncomfortable but it only takes about 8 minutes for a full face.
You can start to see results from 2 weeks but it may take up to 3 months as the treatment is stimulating your body to stimulate collagen production.
A treatment will take up to 30 minutes, depending on the area to be treated and whether or not a mask is used.
An initial course of 3 treatments a month apart are required. The results due to the collagen stimulation continue to appear for about 3 months after a treatment.
If you are considering Nanopore call us to book a consultation with one of the therapists and find out everything you need to know about Nanopore.
