Skin Care: Sun Care or Sun Scare? Cover Recover™ to the Rescue!

Skin Care: Sun Care or Sun Scare? Cover Recover™ to the Rescue!


Skin Care: Sun Care or Sun Scare?

A routine homecare regimen, when combined with treatments by a credentialed skin care professional, can be a fighting force to protect the skin for women, men and children of all ages. Experts recommend that suitable sun protection be worn at all times, even on cloudy days and during the winter season. It is important to note that everyone should be wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen which protects from the damaging exposure to UVA as well as UVB harm. Careful protection is particularly important after certain skincare treatments.

Most people have heard it before, and are aware of the dangers of UVB rays - which includes sunburns and skin cancers. However, many are not aware that exposure to UVA rays have the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin than UVB rays, and bear the brunt of the responsibility for premature aging of the skin.

In following the experts’ advise to take purposeful, protective action, it is suggested that every person apply a suitable sunscreen product 20 minutes prior to sun exposure outside, one which is in the the minimum appropriate SPF level for the body’s skin type and sun exposure conditions. For the sake of safety in protecting the skin - the body’s largest organ - it is recommended to reapply often. Wearing protective clothing such as as a hat and even high-tech articles of clothing with built-in SPF ratings have the ability to potentially reduce the risk of sun damage, premature aging, and skin cancers.

Protect the skin you are in: Be sun-safe, not sun-scared.

Dermapen™ and Skin Needling: The Answer to Skin Perfection?

Dermapen™ and Skin Needling: The Answer to Skin Perfection?


Dermapen™ and Skin Needling: The Answer to Skin Perfection?

Skin needling can treat any skin type – and an array of skin issues. Inskin Cosmedics CEO and founder, Marie Enna-Cocciolone, talks Dermapen3, and everything we need to know about this latest technology in skin needling.

Inskin Cosmedics has been offering skin needling for almost eight years, and with the announcement that the company has been appointed the exclusive Australian distributor for DermapenWorld, Inskin Cosmedics CEO and founder Marie Enna-Cocciolone is well placed to talk about the technology. We talk about the latest version of this leading skin pen – and why it could be just the technology for your salon business.

Dermapen3 is the latest release in skin needling technology.

Dermapen3 is the latest release in skin needling technology.

Why did Inskin Cosmetics decide to take on Dermapen?

“Our Skin-Inject and DNC rollers have been super effective and successful,” says Marie Enna-Cocciolone, CEO and founder of Inskin Cosmedics. “Technology notoriously changes quickly and people look for easier, faster and just as effective advances – skin needling is no exception. We had been searching for a pen for almost three years and Dermapen was our benchmark; never had we imagined we would have the honour of working with the original and global leader itself. We love the fact that Dermapen3 is where we are starting from. We have missed the trials and errors of the first pen, we have benefited from the refining of the Dermapen2 model and we get to start off with the absolute best.”

What is exciting about this newest version?

“As an automated skin needling device, Dermapen is easy to use and the results are simply outstanding,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “The oscillating stamp-like pen harmoniously vibrates and glides over the skin providing the most efficient control, safety and comfort possible, whilst delivering treatment in the shortest time frame with no downtime for your patients. Dermapen with its unique needle tip and strong motor is capable of creating approximately 1300 micro channels per second into the skin. “The concept is made even better with ‘DP Dermaceuticals’ a specially formulated skin care range with just the right level of actives to support skin rejuvenation and wound healing.”

What issues can skin needling correct?

Used by practitioners in over 50 countries Dermapen effectively treats multiple skin conditions including… ageing, wrinkles, various types of scars, acne, dilated pores, stretch-marks, hyper and hypo pigmentation, rosacea, telangiectasia, milia, keratosis pilaris and alopecia,” says ays Enna-Cocciolone. “It also stimulates angiogenesis [the formation of new blood vessels.]

How painful is skin needling?

“The needle depth is adjustable according to the skin condition you are treating with fully adjustable oscillation speed,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Because of this speed and comfort, patients can enjoy their Dermapen treatment sans topical anaesthetic.”

DP Dermaceuticals’ a specially formulated skin care range with just the right level of actives to support skin rejuvenation and wound healing.”

DP Dermaceuticals’ is a specially formulated skin care range with just the right level of actives to support “skin rejuvenation and wound healing”.

What technology has gone into Dermapen3?

Dermapen3 is the gold standard of C.I.T/ Fractional Rejuvenation, which uses an automated needling system,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Over the years the device has been taken through its paces to provide what we know today as a benchmark device.”

This device automated, what does that mean for salons?

The vertical needle entry has no needle bend risk and is automated to allow for a quick and effective way of treating small or curved skin areas. The treatment is non thermolytic [doesn’t break down molecules] and non-ablative, which eliminates the risk of heat and other injuries,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “The electrically charged automation, powered with a high duty cycle motor with AOVN (Automated Oscillating Vertical Needle) Technology, reduces epidermal damage, discomfort and procedural downtime.”

Is it an easy piece of technology for salons to incorporate into their treatment menu?

Incredibly easy, but that’s not to say it doesn’t require a dedicated training day to ensure a full theory and practical understanding,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Both the technology and device are easy to learn and apply, the conditions they treat extensive and non-invasive making Dermapen an effective corrective treatment choice for almost every skin condition. Given that more and more of our partners are enjoying treatments without the need for an anaesthetic cream and considering the speed of the treatment the ROI is also far better than most modalities.”

Do you offer education to your clients?

Not only do we offer it, we insist on it,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “We won’t sell any of our devices/modalities/brands without training. Our aim is to ensure our partner’s investment is effective, their treatment plans and solutions upgraded and that their customers keep coming back. The Dermapen treatment, whilst easy, has a very serious side and one we ensure it is taught thoroughly.”

How To Treat Unwanted Pigmentation

How To Treat Unwanted Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is the technical word for brown spots and patches that appear on face and body skin. This can include freckles, age spots, hormonal pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

Melanin is the name given to the natural pigment produced by the skin. Lighter skin tones naturally produce less melanin, whereas darker skins produce more. Melanin production increases during sun exposure or trauma to protect the skin from further damage and breakdown. It can be described as a natural sunscreen to shield the skin from ultra violet rays.

Melanin however is not always produced evenly and this can result in patches of uneven and dark pigment. Such patches generally appear on the face, neck, arms and backs of the hands. Areas of the body that are not sun exposed (such as the buttocks) rarely show signs of uneven pigment. One unique form of pigmentation known as melasma is triggered by hormones and appears bilaterally on the cheeks, forehead and even the upper lip. This is most common on females and is triggered by hormone changes such as the contraceptive pill and pregnancy.

The first step in any pigment reducing regime is the daily application of a sunscreen. A minimum SPF 15 is recommended and should be applied even in winter and on rainy days. Other ingredients to look out for include vitamin C, kojic, liquorice and vitamin B3. These potent pigment fighters actually sedate overactive pigment cells to prevent excess production. For best results, use twice daily before and after Dermapen™ clinical treatments.

DP Dermaceuticals Brite Lite and Antioxidant Cocktail are brimming with pigment re-balancers to regulate and unify uneven skin tone. Superficial Dermapen™ treatments may be performed as often as every 2-4 weeks to manage and correct uneven tone without overstimulating or harming the skin. Unlike laser or IPL, Dermapen™ treatments may be performed on all skin colours and on all types of unwanted pigmentation. A treatment programme of 3-4 sessions are recommended.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?

Whenever we hear about skin ageing, the words ‘hyaluronic’ and ‘acid’ seem to pop up continually. Whilst the term ‘acid’ may strike fear in many consumers, hyaluronic acid serves a vital role in skin function, repair and youthful luminosity.

Hyaluronic acid (also called hyaluron) is a type of sugar found naturally in all layers of the skin. It is even found in joint fluid, enabling smooth movement of the knees, elbows and hips. Hyaluronic acid works to lubricate and hydrate the skin, whilst shock absorbing any pressure or trauma. In combination with collagen, hyaluronic acid serves as a structural agent to support the deeper layers of the skin. As it holds its own weight 1000 times in water, it also assists with skin renewal, intercellular communication and the promotion of healthy new tissue.

Whilst injectable fillers have been the only way to transport hyaluron to the deeper layers of the skin, HylaFuse™ technology as featured in DP Dermaceuticals, takes topical application to new depths and levels.

HylaFuse™ hyaluronic acid uses a triple molecular weight that absorbs even down to the deeper dermis, within 30 minutes of topical application – no injections required. Unlike other topical forms of hyaluronic acid, HylaFuse™ is clinically proven to be absorbed 150% more effectively.

By using DP Dermaceuticals every day, the HylaFuse™ Complex acts like a sponge to bind water into the skin. This creates a 76% increase in hydration immediately after application to refresh and revive fatigued complexions. Redness is visibly reduced and fine lines plumped. Even open pores and scars appear softer and smoother with better texture and tone.

Regular Dermapen™ treatments not only stimulate collagen, but activate the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid. Sagging is visibly lifted, thinness re-densified and wrinkles are gently smoothed. To increase results, reduce coffee and alcohol intake and drink up to 4 litres of water daily to further saturate the skin with long lasting hydration.

Can Dermapen Deliver on the Promise of Fuller Lips?

Can Dermapen Deliver on the Promise of Fuller Lips?

A study by Gabriella Fabbrocini et al., published in 2012 (“Collagen induction therapy for the treatment of upper lip wrinkles,”Journal of Dermatological Treatment, Volume 23, Issue 2) concluded that micro-needling was an “effective and safe technique to improve upper lip wrinkles,” also referred to as “smoker’s lines”. Subjects of the study were all women between 50 and 65 years of age, and after just two weeks “the wrinkles' severity grade in most patients was greatly reduced.” As a matter of fact, many practitioners are currently turning to Dermapen treatments to address this concern.

But what about the lips themselves? Can Dermapen give lips a plump, full look?

Many are saying YES! Practitioners and patients claim that a depth of .25mm is enough to create an appearance of fuller lips that can last up to a couple of weeks.* While the effects of the lip plumping treatment may not last as long as filler, many find it to be a quick, non-committal, and virtually painless way to give the lips just a little bit more “oomph!” - perfect for a big night out or a wedding weekend.

Some precautionary measures should always be taken – the doctor should always be aware of any medical conditions a patient may have, such as anemia, immune deficiencies, or proneness to cold sores. If the client is prone to cold sore outbreaks, a regimen of an antiviral drug, such as Valaciclovir should be followed to prevent a breakout.

Defy The Ageing Process

Defy The Ageing Process

With skin cancer on the rise worldwide, it is little surprise to learn that the sun is the number one cause of premature skin ageing. Wrinkles, age spots, sagging and thinning of the skin can all be connected to damaging ultra violet rays. 90% of the damage that affects the skin occurs from incidental sun exposure such as walking down the street, working in the garden, driving in the car and even sitting by a window. As ultra violet rays can even reflect off cement, water, sand and glass, not even clothes, sunglasses and a hat can provide 100% protection.

Whilst the sun emits three types of rays, the two that primarily affect skin ageing include UVB and UVA. UVB rays are more superficially absorbed and create sunburn, blistering and peeling. UVA rays are absorbed much deeper and are responsible for skin cancer, the destruction of collagen, damaged DNA and a loss of skin density.

SPF (also known as Sun Protection Factor) is a scale that measures the effectiveness of a sunscreen only against UVB rays. As an SPF rating does not indicate its efficacy against UVA rays, it is always important to look out for a product that states ‘broad spectrum’. This term denotes protection against all types of ultra violet rays.

No sunscreen product can deliver 100% protection against all rays. An SPF 15 = 95% protection, an SPF 30 = 97% and an SPF 50 = 98%. Whilst an SPF 100s are available in some countries, they only offer 98.2% protection.

SPF ratings originally worked on simplistic mathematics. If the skin were to burn in 10 minutes, then the application of an SPF 15 would provide 150 minutes protection before the skin would start to burn – simply multiply 10 minutes by the SPF rating. Unfortunately UV index has too many variables based on:

  • The season (Summer has a higher index than winter)
  • The day (sunny days have a higher index than rainy)
  • The time (the highest index is between 11am-2pm)
  • The location (higher elevations and locations closer to the equator attract a higher index)

    It is therefore recommended that EVERY person, EVERY day should be wearing a minimum SPF 15 sunscreen or ultra violet protective product every day – even in Winter. Apply to the face and exposed limbs 1-2 times daily, even more if in direct sunlight or when swimming. Don’t forget to apply to the tops of the ears, neck and the backs of the hands.

    For areas already showing signs of sun-damage and ageing, regular Dermapen™ treatments will stimulate the production of collagen to visibly volumise and smooth the skin for all year radiance and a youthful glow. Remember that sunburn and a sun tan are the first signs of skin destruction.
