Skin tightening and rejuvenating Sakura3000, uses the most powerful subdermal Fractional microneedling radiofrequency technology. It’s superior at skin tightening, lifting and contouring by stimulating natural collagen and elastin production. The Sakura3000 device holds needles which penetrate deeper into the skin that any other radiofrequency microneedling machine. The needles enter the subdermal tissue, coagulating and contracting the connective tissue, remodelling and smoothing the skin. The face looks more contoured and youthful and can be used on all skin tones. Sakura3000 achieves results much superior to other similar treatments on the market; reduces fine lines and acne scars, improves skin tone and texture and is amazing at tightening skin where it lacks laxity from depleted collagen and elastin fibres.
The Sakura3000 delivers the same results regardless of skin type or tone without creating any thermal damage to the dermis. The advanced technology also reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation which is a common side effect of some resurfacing techniques.
Works great for:
- Loose or sagging skin on the face, jawline, jowls, neck and body
- Wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck and décolletage
- Under eye sagging skin and wrinkles
- Tightening the upper eyelid
- Acne Scarring
- Stretch marks
- Skin discoloration
Visible results can be seen a few days post treatment, however after three weeks the most noticeable results appears as the body’s natural process of collagen and elastin production takes a few weeks. Typically 1-5 treatments are required 3-6 weeks apart, for the eyelid lift often 3-4 sessions may be required, perfect for clients who desire a gradual scar free transformation. Improvements continue up to three months post treatment. Results can last between 1-2 years.
Why genetic background matters:
The genes you carry from parents, grandparents and beyond determine how your skin responds to heat and sun. Very light Scandinavian skin generally is immune to post treatment pigmentation and these skin types can utilise all the different laser technologies without worry. Typically, ethnic skin tans easily and discolors easily. This makes many traditional heat-based technology treatments riskier in terms of post-treatment pigmentation side effects. This is especially the case with lasers that send the same levels of heat through all layers of the skin. For those reasons we require a face to face consultation for darker skin types to establish clients’ suitability and potential risks.
- Avoid blood thinners, fish oil, NSAIDS and aspirin for up to two weeks before treatment (stopping blood thinners must be cleared by your doctor).
- currently on blood thinners (warfarin)
- high dose of aspirin
- blood disorders
- poor healing
- keloid scaring
Does it hurt?
Clients do not report pain just mild discomfort. Your skin will feel like it is sunburnt for a few days.
How long will the recovery take?
Usually the redness will disappear in a few days but occasionally the skin can take up to 3 weeks to heal.
How long do the effects lasts?
You will notice the results after a few days but your skin will continue to develop collagen for another 6 months after the treatment.
How often do I need to repeat the treatment?
You can repeat the treatment every 3-6 months to refresh your skin. A course of treatments should be spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions depends on the starting condition of your skin. Skin will look fresher after just one treatment; however in order to correct skin issues multiple treatments will be needed. We recommend a course of three treatments in order to achieve the optimal results.
Are the results permanent?
The great thing about the Sakura3000 is that it uses the body’s natural immune system; therefore the rejuvenation of the skin is as if we are turning the clock back. But at the same time your skin needs maintenance just like your hair or gym routine.
Does the Sakura3000 work on scars?
Yes it does, it improves and softens the appearance of scars however scar treatments are individual and very much depends on their initial appearance.
What is the aftercare for Sakura3000?
You skin will be red, possibly swollen or even bruised for a few days. Swelling can be managed with cold compresses. An acute swelling can last for 1-3 days and residual swelling for 1-2 weeks. A grid-like pattern might be visible on your skin for up to 5 days along with bronzing, crusting and redness. The small crusted dots usually flake off within a week.
You will need to avoid sunlight and wear a suitable SPF to protect the skin until is healed, about two weeks. We don’t recommend treating a freshly tanned skin or skin that will be exposed to strong sunlight. It is advisable not to engage in exercise that may lead to perspiring in the first couple of days after the treatment.
Are aftercare products included?
Yes we provide two products to help the healing process:
- Dermal healer
- Natural physical SPF
