Vitiligo & Scars

Life can leave traces. Laugh lines are welcome to all of us. The situation is quite different when it comes to unattractive and disturbing scars. Most people want to get rid of scars that remind them of difficult times, such as breast cancer operations or accidents.

Microneedling uses the self-healing powers of the skin and thus reduces scars in a natural way. The skin is perforated with pinpoint accuracy using a microfine needle. The resulting micro-injuries initiate a targeted regeneration process. The skin now produces more collagen, elastin and hyaluron – as a result, scars become much smoother, softer and in many cases almost invisible.

The technique can also be used for bulging, hardened, atrophic and old scars.

 

Microneedling can be used to retouch the following scars:

• Breast scars
• Scars from injuries
• Surgery scars
• Facelift scars
• Suicide Scars
• Pregnancy scars
• Accident scars
• Burn scars
• Acne scars

 

Vitiligo, what is known as the white spot disease, can also limit the self-confidence of those affected. This is an autoimmune disease that leads to pigment disorders.

Depending on the size of the area and the affected area, the lighter areas can be very well matched to the surrounding skin color by means of micropigmentation.

However, keep in mind that the areas treated in this way do not tan as well. If you cannot do without sun, the color difference will therefore be visible again in the summer.

Frequent questions and answers:

Is the treatment painful?

The sensitivity to pain varies greatly from person to person and depends on age as well as skin type. As a rule, the sensitivity of the skin decreases with age. During their period, women can be more sensitive to pain. In the case of surgical scars, the nerve pathways are usually disturbed, so that there is no sensation at all in the region, i.e. no pain.

 

To make the treatment as comfortable as possible, an anesthetic ointment is used, which is applied about 30 minutes before the procedure.

How long does a treatment take?

This question cannot be answered in a general way, as the duration depends on the size of the area to be treated.

How many treatments are necessary?

Most surgical scars are treated in 3 needling sessions.

The interval between sessions is between 4-6 weeks.

If the result is still not satisfactory, the remaining areas can be color-matched using micropigmentation.

However, keep in mind that the pigmented areas do not tan with it. If you cannot do without sun, the color difference will become visible again in summer.

 

Skin pigmentation for white spot disease usually requires 2 sessions, possibly a third. The interval between sessions is between 4-6 weeks.

How long does the result last?

The improvements of scars by microneedling remain long-term.

 

The color pigments of a pigmentation last approx. 1-2 years, after which the color slowly fades.

It can take a few years for complete fading to occur.

 

Definitive time specifications in terms of how long the treatment will last are not possible.

This is influenced by many factors that are individual to each person. These include skin texture (dry or oily), metabolism, habits such as regular visits to saunas and solariums, extensive sunbathing or sweat-causing sports, and peelings.

 

To maintain a perfect color result, a touch-up is recommended after one year.

How much does the treatment cost?

The cost is calculated individually, depending on the size of the areas to be processed. Therefore, a price can be determined only after the consultation.

What should be considered before pigmentation?

You should be of legal age and healthy at the time of treatment and should not have consumed alcohol, drugs or stimulants. Coffee should be avoided 2 hours before the treatment.

Taking medications such as aspirin or other blood thinners should be avoided on the day of treatment.

 

If any of the following apply, please consult your doctor beforehand:

 

Are you HIV-infected, diabetic, hemophiliac, cancer patient or allergic? Do you use laser/chemical peels? Do you use a Retin A/peel treatment? Are you pregnant or currently breastfeeding? Do you use a pacemaker? Do you suffer from acute herpes simplex (cold sores), skin irritations/skin disorders, immune deficiency or autoimmune diseases?

What should be observed after pigmentation?

After the treatment, the treated area is bandaged with sterile gauze to protect it on your way home. Already in the evening you may remove the compresses and then it is best to wear loose, airy clothing without underwear.

Avoid water contact for the first 2-3 days. Use a shower patch or engage in “light zonal washing”.

As soon as healing has begun and a light scab forms, you have the option of using the original SwissColor care ointment Grazia. It supports the healing and makes the skin nice and soft.

For 1-2 weeks after the treatment you should avoid direct sun and solarium. Sauna, swimming pool or sweat-causing sports are also taboo.
