Case study #1 – Vitiligo

There are limited options in treating hypopigmentation and vitiligo outside of a costly certified lab process or tedious mini and punch grafting.

In this case, RES™ was used to reintroduce healthy cells of each of the various phenotypes found in normal skin (including melanocytes), resulting in the restoration of normal pigmentation to a hypopigmented lesion associated with vitiligo.

Unlike other conventional therapies, treatment with RES™ is completed in a single procedure and does not require specialized equipment or a  dedicated laboratory.

Case study #2 – Hypopigmented scar

This patient with a hypopigmented scar had undergone three fraxel laser treatments to improve the aesthetic outcome, however the hypopigmentation persisted. Treatment with CO2 laser and RES™ restored almost 100% pigmentation in a single-stage procedure.

Case study #3 – Acne Scarring

There are numerous methods available for the treatment of acne scarring. Hypopigmentation of the treated area is a risk, particularly with the treatment of individuals with darker skin tones. Severe scarring often requires deep ablation to minimize the textural imperfections, which further increases the risk of hypopigmentation and complications.

In this case, RES™ promoted faster epithelialisation to mitigate against scar formation following deep CO2 laser ablation (to the mid reticular dermis). Additionally, the presence of the complete complement of skin cell phenotypes resulted in the restoration of normal pigmentation of the treated area and a uniform complexion.

Case study #4 – Hypertrophic  Scarring

In this case study, RES™ was used as part of the revision of a mature dyspigmented, hypertrophic flame burn scar.

The scar was successfully restored to near-normal colour through the introduction of multi-phenotype skin cells found in normal skin, allowing for the restoration of normal pigmentation.

At 12 months the skin was described as much improved and remained soft, allowing for a greater range of motion.
