RVR90 2017 – Beating premature ageing: Lee’s Skin Journey


Rewind Skin Clinic, Paradise Point QLD

Month 1 – February

Skin Type II, 45 year-old tradie Lee Martin presented with skin suffering the ageing effects of sun damage, dehydration and stress. Uneven and sallow skin tone highlighted lines on the forehead and around the eyes with sagging cheeks also prominent. Skin therapist Serena, of Rewind Skin Clinic, prescribed home care products and a series of fortnightly treatments according to the client’s skin goals of improved skin health, and a more radiant complexion with less visible signs of ageing.

Beginning with an Azyme treatment, the skin was prepped and Azyme applied for eight minutes. Two weeks later the same treatment was performed with the addition of the use of a medium micro wand pre-Azyme application. Post care advice included no active products for five days after treatment and the use of Ultra B2 Hydrating Serum morning and night, with Ultra Replenishing Mask to sleep in. With each treatment Lee was given an aftercare card and contacted via email/SMS two days after treatment.

The following products were incorporated into Lee's skin care regime to assist him with achieving his dream skin! From left to right: Ultra Brightening Serum, Ultra A Perfecting Eye Cream, Ultra A Skin Perfecting Serum, Ultra Energising Mask, Ultra B2 Hydrating Serum

Month 2 – March

With Lee’s skin barrier dramatically improved Serena performed Direct Needle Therapy on the forehead, nose and eyes using 0.5mm needle and the rest of the face with a 1.5mm needle. Skin response was good and a fortnight later a Vitapeel was applied. A first layer was applied and fanned dry, then a second layer, followed by after care. The treatment, well tolerated by the client, encouraged increased cell turnover and peeling with the client very happy with final results post-treatment.

Lee’s skin texture and tone continued to improve, revealing a glowing complexion that was soft, smooth and visibly healthier.

Continuing his home care routine, Lee returned for two more treatments of Direct Needle Therapy (DNT) to encourage further stimulation of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Using the same protocol of forehead, nose and eyes using 0.5mm needle and the rest of the face with a 1.5mm needle. As previously, Lee was advised to use no active products for five days post-treatment and the use of Ultra B2 Hydrating Serum morning and night, with Ultra Replenishing Mask to sleep in.

Lee’s final treatment was a Vitapeel with application of three complete layers and he remained steady at a pain level of 6 with fanning. The same aftercare was followed with the addition of keeping skin dry for 12 hours. Amazed with his overall results Lee continued to see improvement in his skin in the weeks following DNT treatments.
