DermaVi aesthetics stock a range of skincare products, carefully researched and chosen only on clinical data which supports their efficiency. These require consultation before use.
Dr. Shrivastva is experienced in the use of all types of botulinum toxin, howwever only uses the original Allergan (Botox) which provides the most predictable, reliable and longer lasting results.
Only the finest manufacturers of hyaluronic acid (The Juvederm and Belotero ranges) are used at DermaVi asethetics. There are many cheaper, less researched products available in the European market but these have less clinical data or experience of outcomes with their use.
The Obagi Nu-Derm System uses a unique combination of active and prescription ingredients - including Tretinoin and Hydroquinone 4% - to maximize penetration to all skin layers. The specific dosage and frequency are determined and monitored by your clinician, according to your skin condition, needs and lifestyle.
The Obagi Nu-Derm system is best for patients who are willing to commit to a comprehensive skin care protocol and will tolerate side effects. The treatment is a skin renewal system to be used regularly at home. They are also suitable for people who are concerned about:
- Mild to severe photodamage
- Those patients with hyperpigmentation, or concerned about sun or "age" spots, and uneven pigmentation.
- Lines, wrinkles and laxity
- Those that might experience adult acne.
Many people rely heavily on moisturizers to temporarily plump up the skin cells preventing moisture loss. However penetration is not achieved and the skin becomes dependent with no improvement at the cellular level. Many department store products also advertise that they contain collagen and hyaluronic acid; however it is not possible to incorporate synthetic collagen into one's own cellular makeup, and hylauronic acid is a large molecule, unable to penetrate the surface of the skin.
The Obagi systems do not place emphasis on heavy mositurizers. Instead, damaged skin cells are re-trained to function normally resulting in skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.
Genuine Dermaroller R
Genuine Dermaroller is a medical micro-needling device that promotes skin regeneration and scar repair. Over the last four years Genuine Dermaroller therapy has grwon in popularity and is fast becoming the treatment of choice for acne and atrophic scars, stretch marks, skin regeneration and pigmentation. This treatment is medical grade and is different to the copycat dermaroller used by beauty therapists.
What is a Genuine Dermaroller?
This is a device that produces many micro-needle columns in the skin, each being approximateley 0.1 mm in diameter.These columns close very fast, allowing the skin to heal quicly, often the same day. Topical anesthetic is used prior to traetments, and the procedure usually lasts between 20-30 minutes for Genuine Dermaroller treatments.
It can take up to 6 weeks for visible skin regeneration and repair to occur, and this is due to the time taken for new collagen synthesis, skin cell renewal and enhanced circulation, in a safe and natural manner. Your skin will feel smooth, brighter, tighter and healthier.
What are the side effects of Dermaroller?
Immediateley after treatment your sin may feel tighter or warmer than usual, and you may appear as though you have moderate sunburn. This will settle after afew hours.
In the first 48 hours tepid water should be used to gently cleanse the face and make up should be avoided for 12 hours or so. If you intend to be in sunlight afterwards a high protection UVA/UVB sunscreen should be used, SPF50.
