VITAMIN A STAMPING/LASER
translation missing: en.accessibility.collapsible_content_title
What's The Difference Between Stamping and Laser?
The Stamping targets congestion, pores and texture whereas the Laser targets inflamed acne, facial hair and redness.
The Pro uses a higher percentage of Vitamin A Content and a deeper setting on the Stamping Device/Laser Device to penetrate the skin meaning better results.
Can I wear Makeup after my Procedure?
For this specific procedure you can wear makeup the next day but not after the procedure on the day.
Will Anti- Wrinkle Injections or Filler in face or lips interfere with this procedure? Do I have to wait a certain time?
Injectables work hypodermically (underneath the skin), skin treatments work on-top of the skin and don't penetrate like a needle does so injectable treatments do not interfere with any skin procedures and there is no wait time between getting injectables and skin procedures done. You can even have everything done on the same day if you really want to.
Should I Avoid Anything Before/After My Procedure?
Before Procedure: Avoid 2 weeks before procedure benzoyl peroxide, tretinoin use, antibiotics use (topical).
Must not have any sunburn before procedure.
After Procedure: Avoid Sun for 2 weeks post procedure (wear hat, sunnies and slather spf every few hours).
What's My Aftercare Look Like?
Keep out of the sun for 2 weeks post procedure. Don't peel the skin manually let it peel naturally. Reapply SPF twice a day for 2 weeks post procedure.
For 1-2 weeks post procedure your skin will experience symptoms of sunburn (redness) and purging (acne coming to the surface, this will subside after the purging is done). You may experience if you have acne underneath the skin a phenomena known as purging which will clear in 1-2 weeks post procedure. This is the skins way of clearing everything out.
Don’t wax anything where the treatment is performed including eyebrows for 2-3 weeks post procedure, if you wax it will tear the skin.
After your procedure. Do not continually touch your skin unless you are performing your aftercare routine.Do not sweat or go swimming until 3-7 days have past from time of completed peeling.
You can still wear makeup post procedure during peeling as the top layer of skin is inactive and forms a barrier between pollutants.
If you have work/uni that requires some outdoor activities you must wear a brimmed hat, sunnies and slather your SPF on and actively persist to avoid the sun. Even if you are indoors you still must wear SPF as light rays bounce off surfaces. If you can visibly see in front of you— there is presence of UV light that will damage your skin.
Aftercare for this type of procedure with downtime must be purchased from the Double Bay Cosmeceuticals Line.
Aftercare can look like this: Cleanser ($89), Serum($129) and Moisturiser($89-$149). These products will be your new regular skincare routine wth your own desired SPF.

What Does This Help Treat?
Acne Scars, Pigmentation, Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Pores.
Helps with Skin tightening and giving the skin a face lifted effect.
When Can I Expect Results?
You can expect results in as little as a few days post procedure and even after the first session. Our before and after photos are only after one session.
Keep in mind everyone's skin is different and everyone has different skin tolerances.
How Often Should I Have This Done and How Many Sessions Are Recommended?
This type of treatment should be performed every 4-8 weeks.
We recommend 1-5 sessions until the skin is cleared and maintenance no downtime treatments to keep up the results.
Is There Another Procedure I Can Add On Or Combine For Better Results?
For Acne Prone Skin Types we recommend combining this procedure with a face laser and sebaceous tapping for optimal results.
Sebaceous Tapping works by manipulating the sebaceous gland through radio frequency to decrease the rate of sebum production on overactive breakouts to normalise skin function. Therefore combining the two treatments results in treatment as well as reduces the reoccurring breakouts in the future.
We recommend face laser as we thin out and kill the hair follicle. Acne originates in the hair follicle, if the hair follicle is reduced we have a lower chance of reoccurring acne.
If the skin is suffering with heavy stubborn congestion we recommend a DUO treatment in combination with Six Star Peel.
Post treatment your skin will be flushed due to proteins of your skin reacting with acids to help desquamate the skin. This is apart of the process and can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days due to increased collagen production (what we want for plump skin).
Side Effects of this treatment come from improper aftercare.
Improper SPF Application: SPF still needs to be worn indoors and on cloudy days as there is still a presence of UV radiation. SPF needs to be applied every 3 hours during peak UV times (apply 2x a day).
Peeling the Skin Manually instead of letting it Peel on its own: this will peel into deeper layers of the skin which will cause permanent scarring which is difficult to get rid of.
When proper aftercare is followed you will have an easy and successful treatment.
After I Get My Glass Skin What Do I Do To Maintain It And Make Results Last As Long As Possible?
You should continue using your aftercare of Double Bay Cosmeceuticals and expand on the range of including a AHA Toner, Phaseolus Radiatus Mask, Six Star Peel Cream and Retinol 1% Serum.
You should get maintainence peels such as the express vitamin a peel, pro nascent peel (suitable for sensitive skin, pregnant and breastfeeding women), Snake venom glass lift, etc. Send a photo to us via chat widget, email, contact page or through social medias for us to tell you what to book for your next or simply book a "choose on the day" appointment and we will help you on the day.
If you aren't able to come into clinic you can do your own Six Star Peels as home and Stamping they should be performed every 4-6 weeks.
