CHEMICAL PEELS & DERMA ROLLERS
The appearance of your skin can be dramatically improved through the use of a medical grade skin peel. Regular treatments will help combat the appearance of skin concerns such as pigmentation, melasma (uneven skin tone), acne and acne scars, large pores.
The skin’s production of collagen will also be increased due to the increased turnover of your skin, therefore the appearance of fine lines will also be diminished.
Dermapen uses micro needles that vertically pierce the skin in a process called “micro-needling”. This is far safer for the patient because there is less epidermal damage than other cosmetic treatments like fractional laser resurfacing or dermal rolling.
The automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen is effective in reducing pain and discomfort for the patient.
IS A CHEMICAL PEEL RIGHT FOR ME?
Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for chemical peels. If you have darker skin, you may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated. But you also may be more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure. Skin sags, bulges, and more severe wrinkles do not respond well to chemical peels. They may need other kinds of cosmetic surgical procedures, such as laser resurfacing, a facelift, brow lift, eyelid lift, or soft tissue filler (collagen or fat). A dermatologic surgeon can help determine the most appropriate type of treatment for you.

WHAT ARE SKIN PEELS?
They harness the power of naturally occurring acids and active ingredients to deeply exfoliate and brighten the skin. The treatment stimulates new cell growth and collagen production, helping to reveal fresher, clearer, brighter skin.
At sk:n, we offer a variety of industry leading Skin Peels that involve applying a non-toxic chemical solution to the skin that removes the top layer of dead skin cells and encourages new ones to grow, revealing the softer, smoother skin beneath.
WHAT IS DERMA ROLLER?
Derma roller is a type of skin rejuvenation treatment known as micro needling. It involves using a special roller with tiny needles along its surface to make lots of shallow punctures in the skin.
HOW DOES DERMAROLLER TREATMENTS WORK?
The tiny punctures made by the Derma roller device stimulate a healing response within the skin, kick-starting cell renewal and the production of collagen and elastin. This helps to rejuvenate the appearance of the skin, plumping out fine lines and wrinkles and improving the appearance of marks, scars and stretch marks.
