What is Velvet Skin?

Velvet Skin is a procedure that uses a dermapen to create microscopic holes in the skin, followed by a massage peel to firm the skin. The holes created by the dermapen stimulate the production of collagen and elastin during the wound healing process, resulting in skin elasticity.

In addition, a synergistic effect can be expected from the collagen-enhancing effect of PRX-T33 used in the massage peel.

Although massage peel is an effective peeling treatment on its own, when combined with the Dermapen, the cosmetic ingredients penetrate deep into the skin for even greater results.

What is a Dermapen?

Dermapen is a treatment that promotes natural healing and skin regeneration by drilling microscopic holes in the dermal layer of the skin. 16 needles are equipped to drill invisibly small holes in the skin. Despite the large number of needles, there is usually no strong pain felt during the procedure. The process of skin regeneration stimulates collagen production and increases skin elasticity.

What is Massage Peel?

The main ingredients of PRX-T33 are trichloroacetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and kojic acid.

Trichloroacetic acid stimulates fibroblasts that produce elastic components such as collagen and elastin, resulting in more elastic skin.

Hydrogen peroxide reduces the inflammatory effects of trichloroacetic acid, a side effect of trichloroacetic acid. Kojic acid also inhibits melanin production and promotes the improvement of spots and dark spots.

Effects of Velvet Skin

Improvement of pore opening

As a result of the stimulation of the deeper layers of the skin by the dermapen, collagen and elastin production is stimulated and the tissue around pores is tightened. In addition, a synergistic effect of trichloroacetic acid stimulating collagen production can be expected.

Improvement of acne scars (including craters)

It is also effective in improving acne scars, craters, and other skin irregularities. The dermapen makes microscopic holes in the skin, thereby enhancing the skin's healing ability. This, combined with the collagen-boosting effect of trichloroacetic acid, gradually improves crater-like acne scars.

Improvement of dullness

The Velvet Skin treatment improves the skin's ability to heal, thereby promoting melanin elimination and improving dullness. In addition, the massage peel allows kojic acid to inhibit melanin production.

Improvement of wrinkles

Dermapen improves fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the skin's regenerative power and stimulating collagen production, which tightens the skin. A synergistic effect of trichloroacetic acid's collagen-boosting action can also be expected.

Advantages of Velvet Skin

Can be used for a wide range of skin concerns

Velvet Skin is a combination of a dermapen and massage peel that addresses a wide range of skin problems such as pore size, wrinkles, acne scars, dullness, etc. It is recommended for those who have less serious problems and want an efficient cosmetic treatment.

Effects appear more quickly than the treatment alone.

Immediately after the treatment, you can feel the firmness of the skin and tightening of pores. By being able to feel the effects at an early stage, it will be easy to increase motivation for cosmetic treatment.

Short downtime

The major advantage of Velvet Skin is its short downtime after the procedure. While swelling and redness usually last for several days after cosmetic surgery procedures, Velvet Skin has a relatively short downtime and does not significantly affect work or personal life.

Who is recommended to use Velvet Skin?

  • Those who wish to resolve a wide range of skin problems.
  • For those who want to feel the effects quickly
  • Those who want to reduce downtime

Velvet Skin Precautions and Downtime

Post-treatment precautions

  • Immediately after the procedure, the skin holes opened by the dermapen are open, so it is necessary to avoid washing the face and applying makeup for 12 hours after the procedure
  • On the day of treatment, only showering is allowed. After the next day, there is no problem to take a bath, but if redness is noticeable, please use lukewarm water.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and saunas, as the increased body temperature may aggravate symptoms
  • If there is redness, heat, or intense itching at the treatment site, cool it with a coolant or lukewarm water
  • Refrain from makeup and other irritants
  • Since the skin is temporarily sensitive after the procedure, careful UV protection is necessary to prevent blotches and wrinkles from increasing
  • Skin tends to dry out easily during downtime, so please moisturize adequately. However, please refrain from applying lotion on the day of treatment and do so after the next day ・Use hypoallergenic cosmetics and avoid peeling and those containing high concentrations of vitamins

Down time

Downtime varies from person to person, but is usually around 10 days. Symptoms during downtime include

  • Redness, burning (2-3 days after treatment)
  • Internal bleeding, swelling (1-10 days after treatment)
  • Dryness and itching (1-10 days after treatment)
  • Peeling (2-10 days after treatment)

Is there any pain during the Velvet Skin procedure?
Dr. Smaski.

Tingling or pricking may be felt when the fine needles of the dermapen puncture the skin, but it is usually only mildly irritating and rarely causes severe pain. The massage peel agent is also only applied to the surface of the skin and is not irritating.
However, the perception of pain varies from person to person.

Dr. Smaski.

Pay attention to face washing and skin care, use hypoallergenic cleansing foam and wash the skin gently. On the day of treatment, take showers only and avoid taking baths to avoid excessive blood circulation. Limit excessive exercise and heavy drinking.
