Xela Redermalisation: A new way to retexturise and beat pigmentation
26 Feb 2019
Chances are you’ve heard about dermal fillers like Juvederm and Perlane, but do you know about Xela Redermalisation? A quick and easy, no downtime treatment you could have on your lunch break. It can retexturise your skin while minimising the look of pigmentation and more.
Essentially a revitalised complexion in a syringe, a Xela Redermalisation treatment involves injecting a solution made up of hyaluronic acid and sodium succinate just beneath the surface of your skin. This means lots of tiny injections to treat the area be it just your eyes or your entire face. Good news though, you won’t feel a thing as a numbing cream is applied beforehand.
The magic mix in Xela Redermalisation
Hyaluronic acid is a water-binding molecule that’s found naturally in your skin. It has the ability to attract and hold a thousand times its own weight it water. This makes it an incredible moisturiser that can plump up the look of fine lines in a jiffy.
As for the sodium succinate, this works as an antioxidant, allowing it to fend off the free-radicals responsible for premature ageing. It also encourages the production of new collagen and elastin. So, while the hyaluronic acid instantly plumps, the sodium succinate does the same thing, but in a different way and over a period of time.
Another plus? As sodium succinate blocks the pathways involved in the formation of pigmentation it can both prevent and fade existing marks. You could also speed up this process with an exfoliating treatment like a Dermapen skin needling or a peel. Either way, your therapist will advise you on the best path. Xela Redermalisation is a wonderful treatment to have in adjunction to others.
A bit about eyes and Xela Redermalisation
Xela Redermalisation can be used to treat the face, neck, décolletage and hands but is especially popular for the eye area. It’s a great way to address those fine lines your foundation or concealer tend to get trapped in. It plumps up thinning skin and minimises the appearance of dark circles. Many don’t realise that dark circles aren’t always caused by a lack of microcirculation under your eyes. They’re often the result of skin that’s already thin becoming even thinner as we age. The more translucent it gets, the more it reveals all the tiny blood vessels that exist beneath your skin.
Say no to downtime
The great thing about a Xela Redermalisation treatment is that it’s a real in-and-out procedure our doctors can perform it in as little as thirty minutes! Immediately afterwards, the injection sites will look like tiny, raised bumps, almost like insect bites. These will disappear within a couple of hours and the result will be firmer plumper-looking skin. Still, there is a small chance that you could experience temporary mild redness or get a small bruise, but this can be hidden with make-up before it fades away.
