I was lucky enough to be invited back to Pings clinic: The Beauty Zone in order to film micro pigmentation scar camouflaging and it’s something I’ve been interested in ever since I did the eyebrows with Pings a while ago and she was training someone in micropigmentationso we headed back with a model who has a acne scarring and she did micro pigmentation on her skin to help cover up the acne scars and that’s what this video is about it is pretty cool and pretty effective I hope you enjoy it. So this is the model, Katherine, she had acne scars on her face so she’s lost pigment in the areas where the scarring has occurred in she has had previous treatments in order to help with the scarring but they haven’t helped to the extent that she wanted so putting a pigment back into the skin where the scarring has occured helps visibly reduce the scarring so you match a color to the skin and you pop that back into where you’ve actually lost the pigmentation so it’s re-pigmentation tension.
“Um it’s a little bit like tattooing, so their going to cover my spots” “A little bit lighter than my normal color, hopefully they will take away my… spots or at least camouflage them a little bit” “Yeah so their not so obvious, coz their ugly” “Yes no make up, hopefully, I’d like to go make up free” “I’ve tried laser, I P L and fractional lasers, on them too, yeah, I’ve tried heaps” “Well they were meant to decrease my pigmentation to make the scarring lighter, but it never happened, yeah” “not as much to my liking anyway.
They’ve done the allergy test and all so I’m fine with all that, yeah, I’m just, yeah, I’ve googled a little bit on it. I’m nervous but I’m excited” “I’ve never had it done, but I’ll do anything” Everything is sanitized and sterile, So the model’s skin is cleansed, cream is put on, the numbing cream is only put on the areas where they will be treating, putting pigment back into the skin where’s there’s scarring, so we waited about 10 to 15 minutes for the numbing to fully take effete Ping and her trainee looked at it the color of her skin and ascertained what color would be best They used about six tones to get the correct color, and it took about three different color choices to figure out which color would match her skin tone best The color was mixed up and very carefully the micropigmenation machine and needle was all put together.
For application, Ping and her trainee would dip their pigmentation needle into the color and then they would apply that in small quick prick like sensations into the skin so basically the pigmentation is going into the skin via little channels, but the client is number and she isn’t feeling much of it if anything at all So you can see here, Ping is directing the trainee where to apply the pigmentation in the centre or not touching the edges of the white scar. There is a little bit of blood, this looks similar to petechiae, that we experience when we do skin needling, so it’s only really surface level, it doesn’t keep bleeding and when you wipe it off it’s gone. just bear in mind this might take a 2nd treatment, this isn’t just a one off potentially, we have to see how it pans out and how it heals and how it looks after time, it could take up to four to five weeks for it to settle. Finally once all of the areas have been treated, they wipe off any petechiae and surface level color, and then apply some more color by way of a soak so to speak so that was left on for about five minutes just to continue soaking into any of those little micro channels that open in the skin.
Client: “It’s not too bad, some bits I couldn’t even feel at all” After wiping off the color soak, the cleaned the skin, then applied like a paw paw kind of ointment, it’s actually a specialized healing ointment that Ping supplies I’m not completely sure what’s in it but she was told to apply this three or four times a day Client: “oh heaps actually, no spots for starters. I’ve been told a bit of redness afterwards which is fine. Yeah so just a good outcome, I hope so.” And here’s the models reaction. “woooooow, OMG that’s so cool, Wow that’s so cool, I look normal! That’s amazing!” “That’s yuck (untreated side) That’s cool (treated side) It’s so cool, I’ll go home and look at it for ages” This after picture is within 10 minute sof the treatment happening so the skin is pink and a little bit swollen and the areas so once it settles you really will see what the results will look like but even now you can se a different and that is amazing and here’s a picture which is about 4 days after the treatment.
