The Pigmentation Programme offers an intense treatment regime to proactively tackle pigmentation and stop new pigmentation forming. Skin pigmentation results from the malfunction of pigment cells in the skin. These pigment cells, melanocytes, can over-produce pigment or clump pigment together causing uneven distribution of the pigment. This can be seen in conditions such as Melasma, Solar Lentigo or Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). Dr Tatiana’s Pigmentation Programme aims to restore the health of pigment cells, blend existing pigmentation and prevent new pigmentation from forming. The programme can be either Intense (12 weeks) or Gradual (6 months), depending on your preference.
The programme includes a consultation appointment and then 3 treatment appointments at the Start of the programme, at 6 weeks into the programme and then at 12 weeks into the programme. This allows the doctor to keep a close eye on your progress and offer targeted treatments at the start of every new skin cycle (each skin cycle is 6 weeks). Each appointment is approximately 1 hour. PRP involves a blood sample and injections into the skin. Peel treatments involve moderate peeling for 5-7 days after treatment.
We use numbing cream to reduce skin sensitivity.
Recovery & Aftercare:
You will need 2-3 days recovery after PRP and 5-7 days recovery after Peel treatments. There may be some redness, swelling, bruising and flaking of the skin. You will need to wear sunblock daily and avoid intense sun exposure for 6 weeks after each Peel treatment. You will be given aftercare serum to use to promote skin recovery after treatment.
You will see optimal results 6 weeks after completing the treatment programme and these are likely to last 12 months or more. However, please bear in mind that adherence to the programme, age, general health, medication, hormones e.g. pregnancy and sun exposure may change the effectiveness of the treatment and duration of results.
Risks & Complications:
The treatment programme is very safe. Potential risks include allergy, infection and prolonged recovery time
