WHAT IS NANOPORE PIGMENTATION THERAPY?
NanoPore Pigmentation Therapy is a new treatment system, developed in Europe. It is a system of direct delivery of skin lightening ingredients to target the pigment cells inside the skin, which causes dark skin patches like Melasma and Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. The skin becomes more receptive to the key ingredients that are infused because of this technique, thus, hastening the skin lightening results.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?
The number of sessions will depend on the severity of the pigmentations. An average of 5 to 6 sessions may be needed for better results. Each session can be done every 3 to 4 weeks.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
We apply a numbing cream 30 to 45 minutes before the procedure, to decrease the pain that will be felt during the treatment. The sensation will be a mildly pricking feeling during the treatment.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Immediately after the treatment, there will be redness and swelling which will last for around 2 to 3 days. There may be transient or temporary darkening of the pigmentations, which can last for up to 2 weeks. The lightening results can be seen after 3 to 4 weeks.
ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
We recommend that the patient avoid washing the area for 24 hours. Extreme sun exposure should be avoided for at least 2 weeks after the treatment. We recommend using a Sunblock/Sunscreen everyday.
