The GEM Clinic Signature Depigmentation Programme offers effective results in reducing pigmentation, uneven skin tone and enlarged pores on the face. The treatment consists of two stages.
Stage one begins at our doctor’s office where after skin evaluation, our doctor will cleanse your skin and will apply a yellow mustard mask that must be used for 4 to 8 hours depending on skin type. After the grace period, the mask can be removed via water and followed by cleansing the face with a hydra-vital factor K cream.
Stage two is the home maintenance part of the treatment. The treatment consists of a continuous use of a prescribed cream. The frequency of application begins with three time a day for one week since the mask application, twice a day for one week on the second week and once a day beginning from the third week onwards.
The treatment is highly compatible with different skin types, exhibits rapid results, rejuvenates skin, and does not contain trichloracetic acid which is very corrosive on skin. The treatment will be combined with a platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment using the clients own blood serum paired with micro-needling to achieve better results.
During the first two days of treatment, the patient’s skin will be red and it will feel sensitive. Some patients may also experience a slight burning and tightening sensation that typically lasts between 24 to 48 hours since the beginning of the treatment.
After PRP treatment you may notice slight swelling and bruising which will subside in a short period of time. PRP is made of natural components from your body, thus has very minimal side effects and there is no downtime associated with this treatment.
After the third and fourth day, patients would start to see skin looking healthy and radiant. Mild reddening and flaking may also occur hence it is advisable to apply the hydra-vital factor K cream between the second and third day and repeating when flaking is most intense.
