The Dermastamp increases its popularity due to its ability to provide new vigour and energy to the skin. The increased network of blood ensures the supply of extra nutrients and oxygen to the face, resulting in a glowing complexion. This process of angiogenesis helps to develop new blood vessels and helps to resolve insecure broken vessels.
A study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (December 2015) addressed the link between pigmentation and vascularisation in melasma and hyperpigmentation. The study demonstrated that benign vascular lesions (broken capillaries/ telangiectasia) have restricted but significant hyperpigmentation compared with the surrounding skin.
The researchers then studied the role of microvascular endothelial cells in regulating skin pigmentation. With an underlying network of fine blood vessels in skin pigmentation, endothelin 1 (a potent vasoconstrictor peptide) released by the endothelial cells induced increased melanogenesis. The study proved that there was a significant increase of melanocytes being stimulated from the endothelin cells (found within the broken vessels).
Although the study went on to recommend a development of topical agents to inhibit the activation of the receptors that stimulate melanocytes, Dermastamp would argue that to resolve the underlying issue would be far more impactful. A system to resolve compromised vessels without heat would be the right course of action.
Louise Farrar, aesthetic nurse at Sempre Bella Cosmetic Medicine, has trialed the Dermastamp on her own skin to help resolve her own vascularity. Featured here in her own before and after photos, she strongly agrees with this study as her own skin has reflected a reduction in her own melasma and a more resilient skin post treatment. “I’m a huge fan of the Dermastamp,” she says. “It delivers results far beyond what laser alone can deliver. I’ve had many different laser treatments to help with my vessels, but nothing compares to the Dermastamp. I’ve witnessed great results within six weeks with it, and even three months later the results keep continuing.”
