Strengthen and improve texture whilst targeting over active sebaceous glands.
Acne is a skin condition characterised by red pimples on the skin due to inflamed or infected oil glands and is chiefly present among teenagers but can last well beyond the teen years. It can be painful, challenging and affect one’s mental well-being and confidence and can result in scarring. We provide several solutions to help you regain control over your skin.
There are three stages of Acne – mild, moderate and severe. Acne can occur commonly on the face, neck, shoulders and back. The swelling of the skin is from the sebum, hair follicle and skin cells all getting “plugged” together, causing bacteria leading to an infection. Although acne is prominent in our teenage years, some cases follow us until we are well into our adult life.
This treatment provides a long-lasting tightening effect to lift & brighten complexion.
As we age, the outer layer of our skin naturally thins, and along with this goes the layer of fat and collagen that used to keep our skin looking youthful and plump. In contrast to the taut, supple appearance your skin has when you’re younger, ageing skin loses its elasticity and its ability to “bounce back”.
The symptoms of ageing become more obvious when your skin starts to sag in areas such as your cheeks/jaw line and neck. Muscle/weight loss and pregnancy also contribute to the loose skin on our bodies. Due to the loss of volume that has essentially stretched out our skin, these areas that once looked toned and defined begin to look thin & sagging. Unfortunately for us, this cycle is irreversible and is naturally occurring in everyone’s life.
Tighten skin, clear pigmentation, reduce wrinkles, restore volume, and intensely re-hydrate the skin.
As we age, combination of genetic, lifestyle, dietary and environmental factors contribute to skin ageing.
How your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors: your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and other personal habits. For instance, smoking can produce free radicals, once-healthy oxygen molecules that are now overactive and unstable.
Free radicals damage cells, leading to, among other things, premature wrinkles.
There are three types of skin ageing – the first being intrinsic ageing, which is known as the natural ageing process that begins in our mid- twenties. This is where our collagen production begins to slow down and slows our elastin thus enabling our skin to snap back into place. With less fat in the skin, it starts to sag and look more aged, wrinkled and fragile. Our sebaceous glands are producing less oil and elastin which then gives us our wrinkles.
Target superficial pigment & dermal pigment whilst reversing the signs of sun damage & ageing.
The second and lower layer of skin, called our dermis, is responsible for giving us our pigment called melanin when over stimulated, can cause excess pigmentation.
The over stimulation of melanin can be caused by excess sun exposure and or hormonal changes and certain medications. This is the brown discolouration some see on the cheeks, chin, forehead and upper lip in a symmetrical pattern. It primarily appears on women but can also appear in men.
Restructure old scar tissue, and stimulate the production of new collagen.
Stretchmarks are bands of lines visible on the skin. These lines can vary in colour and size from purple, grey or white. They have a different texture to the rest of the skin and can be sore or itchy.
The common cause of stretch marks is often related to the sudden change of weight such as pregnancy or weight loss/gain and in adolescents (growth). Stretch marks are not dangerous or harmful but their appearance to some, depending on where they are located, can cause concern especially when there’s a significant difference in colour and or size.
Restructure old scar tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen.
Acne scars are permanent textural changes and indentations that occur on the skin because of severe acne. As the bumps and lumps of active acne come and go, it often leaves our skin red, irritated, inflamed and uneven. This is what we call acne scarring. This can be treated with medically prescribed medicine however acne medication does not always get to the root of the problem, often causing another acne flare up once off the medication.
As we age, acne scars often become more noticeable because our skin loses collagen. Acne scarring on the face appears as damage to the skin texture with depressed (or indented) areas of assorted sizes, whilst the back and chest scars tend be raised and lumpy. Scars are can appear to be normal skin colour or dark and more noticeable, especially on fair skin. Some keloid scars can remain red for many years.
Reduce and remove superficial vascular lesions and diffuse redness.
Veins showing through skin area is not uncommon in people, especially those with pale skin. While unpleasant to the eyes, veins that can be seen through skin are usually harmless and don’t affect blood circulation or health.
The most common causes include:
- People with a fair complexion have more visible veins as compared to others.
- Thinner people have less fat to hide veins leading to visibility, and veins that are too close to the skin’s surface are more visible, which is common in the legs especially.
Our treatment is non-invasive, fast & effective.
Tattoo application uses a mechanised needle to puncture the skin and inject ink into the dermis or second layer of skin just below the epidermis. Since this process involves damaging the skin, the body responds with white blood cells, which attempt to absorb the foreign particles and dispose of them in the blood stream. The pigment is then left behind as they are too big to be taken by the white blood cells, resulting in a tattoo.
Reduce the appearance of dark circles and restore hydration with this under-eye treatment.
Specifically formulated for the delicate skin under our eyes, it diminishes dark circles, smooths fine lines and wrinkles whilst brightening, energising and reviving the under eye area.
Our Under-Eye Circle treatment is a new concept, which is a combination of filler and mesotherapy, especially designed to nourish the skin from within and restore its density. This treatment offers a formula based on a higher concentration of dermal filler and a fine selection of ingredients with a proven efficacy on the dermis.
Our Under-Eye Circle treatment is the latest treatment from Europe and is the only product of its kind. When concealer or eye creams can’t hide those dark circles any more – this is the treatment for you!
Frequently Asked Questions
We offer complimentary consultations for all new and existing clients. Our therapists will conduct a skin analysis using our skin scanning technology and will recommend an appropriate treatment and product for you. It is our specialty to educate people on their skin type and how to maintain an appropriate skin care regime tailored to them.
Our specialised skin tightening treatment is designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and help with the regeneration of damaged skin cells. Using our Candela GentleYAG Laser
Technology, the heat energy injected into the skin penetrates deep whilst protecting the visible and upper layers, so as not to damage the skin.
The heat injected causes the collagen to contract which induces growth factors and stimulates new collagen synthesis, replacing the old collagen with new fibres that are more compact and organised, to give a less wrinkled appearance. This treatment is quick, comfortable and non-invasive with minimal downtime. Results are seen 3 months post treatments.
As each of our skin treatments differ, the result time frame will vary. For our less invasive treatments which include, microdermabrasion, hydrodermabrasion and skin peels, the results are more immediate. Our more invasive treatments can take up to 3 months to show. These invasive treatments include; radio frequency, laser rejuvenation and skin needling.
These treatments have more lasting impacts than the less invasive treatments. Your therapist will create a treatment plan that will include a variety of treatments to address the skin concerns you wish to correct.
We have the option of topical anaesthetic which is applied before the treatment to minimise any discomfort you may feel during these skin treatments.
The similarity between these two treatments is that they both use small needles to cause a controlled wound in the skin to promote the production of collagen which is a natural healing response.
RF Skin Resurfacing uses radio frequency and dermal stamping technology to place heat effectively into the upper layer of the skin, where it produces an increase in both collagen and elastin with minimal disruption to the skin.
Skin Needling uses a mechanical pen to stimulate the collagen and elastin production.
Both skin treatments will give you a tightening effect.
After having an invasive skin treatment, i.e. RF Skin Resurfacing and Skin Needling, you will experience slight redness in the skin. The redness is completely normal and will subside within a few hours. Besides the redness, there isn’t normally any downtime associated with these treatments and you can generally return to work afterwards.
After your treatment, our therapists will take you through a post-care treatment schedule to assist in the healing of your skin.
Particularly after more invasive treatments, the use of product in your aftercare regime ensures you receive optimal results with little to no side effects.
Aftercare is important for all skin treatments, laser hair removal and even cosmetic injections. Your aftercare pack will be tailored to you and your skin concerns.
We offer a variety of skin peels and each one contains a different level of intensity. Our lighter peels will show little to no shedding at all whilst our strong peels will show some shedding of the skin as it is deeply exfoliating.
The most appropriate skin peel will be prescribed to you upon your initial skin consultation. Our therapist will also talk you through the possible side effects and whether you may have some down time. Mild to moderate peeling is normal for 1-5 days post peel.
