Dermapen treatment
About the treatment

The basic premise behind “micro needling” is to stimulate the production of new collagen by needling the skin. Taking advantage of the skin’s ability to heal itself, microneedling causes micro-injuries to the epidermis, which signals the body to produce collagen to remodel the damaged area which in effect rejuvenates the skin making your skin look younger and fresher.

Scalp micro pigmentation

What is Scalp Micro pigmentation?

Scalp Micro pigmentation (SMP) involves the use of highly specialized equipment and techniques to inject pigment into the scalp. Scalp Micropigmentation is an extremely intricate procedure with a guaranteed result.

The quality of your treatment depends on two things: Using the most up-to-date equipment, and getting your treatment from the most skilled and experienced practitioners.

At www.reformationhairclinic.co.za , we use a special computer controlled system, the most cutting edge technology in the industry, to ensure you receive a consistent appearance across the head and completely flawless results.

Each treatment is tailored to your exact skin color and type. Scalp Micropigmentation  is the ultimate in non-surgical male and female scalp grooming; an incredible life-changing treatment where natural pigments are applied at the epidermal level of the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles.

6D Microblading

This technique is a process that may be used to improve or create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of lost hair, to extend the eyebrows, or may be used as a full reconstruction if the brows have little/no hair. Each microblading stroke is applied individually, allowing the therapist control of the shape, color and density of the completed eyebrows. Click to “Read More" below

The treatment begins with developing the desired shape, then using individual strokes or ‘feathers’ in the area to plot the shape and style requested. The color choice is patient specific and is mixed using a natural selection of semi-permanent micropigments to complement hair color and skin tone. Varying shades of hypoallergenic micropigments react differently with each skin type and fade accordingly, depending on skin regimen, sun exposure, environmental and after care precautions. Immediately post treatment, eyebrows will appear darker than expected, but will fade 50% during the healing process over the following 2 weeks. The 2nd application 6 weeks later includes a touch up to ensure micro-pigments are healing properly and responding well.

Microblading, although semi-permanent, lasts between 6 – 18 months if proper aftercare instructions are maintained. The treatment is typically a 2 step application process, the initial appointment includes consultation and initial application, the second appointment is 6 weeks to touch up and ensure longevity of the colors used.

Laser hair growth

What is laser hair growth?
There are a variety of different gadgets available on the high street that offers LLLT therapy to promote hair growth. LLLT (low-level light therapy) is a treatment that utilizes lasers, or light energy below a specific energy threshold and within a specific wavelength, to help promote hair growth.
The light source used for these products can range between laser and LED devices, the laser devices used are referred to as cold lasers as they produce no heat and are therefore safe to use and will cause no damage to the skin or hair follicles. Click to “Read more" below

How does laser hair growth work?
LLLT has been shown to promote hair growth in both men and women with androgenetic alopecia. Research indicates that LLLT is absorbed into the cells, and this triggers enhanced cellular activity. The LLLT is thought to make aging cells more active, which works to increase their effectiveness in hair growth.

Does it actually work?

The treatment works best on those with thinning hair and pattern baldness caused by a hereditary condition, hair loss due to stress or medication taken. The treatment will not work on everyone, and it is unlikely to work on those with very little to no hair.
How quickly will I see results?
Studies have shown that the treatment can show results after different periods of time, for different clients. However on average clients saw some results after around 12 weeks of using the treatment.

The combination of laser and micro needling has shown amazing results.

How these treatments work together?

The Dermapen treatment produces micro-injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the itself naturally.
Micro needling or collagen induction therapy has been reported to be effective in reversing hair loss. It does this by stimulating blood flow, increasing the availability of cell nutrients, releasing vascular endothelial factor (VEGF), and upregulating fibroblast growth factor (FGF-7).
As a natural hair loss treatment method, microneedling stimulates new cell production and encourages the growth of new hair.
Hair loss in androgenetic alopecia depends on a testosterone derivative in the skin, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Low level laser therapy helps to increase blood flow in the scalp and stimulate metabolism in catagen or telogen follicles, resulting in the production of anagen hair.
