Information on what we offer

  Microneedling

Microneedling is an FDA approved non-surgical approved treatment for the treatment of fine lines, facial sagging, acne scarring, and facial scars. It has also been found to stimulate new hair growth for people experiencing hair loss.

The Microneedling Pen is a small electronic pen like device which holds a disposable needle with 12 needles. It is used to rejuvenate the skin and improve the skin surface by reducing fine lines, expression lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, skin texture and acne scars. The concept of Micro Needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical injury such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. As the Micro Needling device moves across the skin, it makes pinpoint punctures to create very minor micro-“injuries.” In response to the perceived “injury,” a cascade of growth factors are released, which in turn triggers new collagen synthesis. This process has two major benefits - it effectively stimulates collagen formation and provides a clear channel for topical serums to be absorbed through the surface of the skin. By persistently triggering this healing process with a series of Micro Needling treatments, the body keeps repairing the skin to offer a result similar to fractional laser treatments or chemical peels, but without the side effects and extended downtime. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.. While most commonly used on the face, Micro Needling can also be used to restore and regenerate the skin on the neck, chest, and hands. Micro Needling is safe for all colours of skin and all types of skin.

 

Micro Needling is performed in a safe and sterile environment with the use of a sterile, disposable tip that allows effective treatment to hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic cream is applied for patient comfort. The basic Micro Needling treatment includes the application of healing gels, serums and a mask during the procedure. The entire procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and the anatomical site. New collagen takes 90 days to form, and one needs approximately 6 treatments, having a treatment every 4 to 6 weeks.

The sensation of Micro Needling is uncomfortable, but not painful, particularly in areas of bony prominence and where the skin is thinner such as the neck and around the eyes and forehead. Immediately following the procedure the skin will feel tight, dry, swollen, and sensitive to the touch. It will also look and feel sunburned. The sensitivity and redness will diminish significantly within 24 hours. Other common short-term side effects include itching, discomfort, pinpoint bleeding or bruising, scabbing, and darkening of the treated area. Additionally, the skin may look and feel like sandpaper; these effects generally last 2-7 days as the treated skin flakes off and is replaced by new tissue.

A Hyaluronic serum from Lamelle is advised to be used post treatment for 4 days. This will help for inflammation, and help to hydrate and heal the skin.

By day 10 your skin will be glowing, with the full results of the treatment showing after 3 months.

 In my opinion this is the best anti ageing treatment on the market

 IPL hair removal, skin rejuvenation and pigmentation removal

E-Light combines three advanced technologies: Bipolar RF + IPL + Skin Contact Cooling. There is a slightly uncomfortable feeling during the treatment, (an elastic band feeling). This is decreased significantly with the cooling system used. Treatments are efficient in persons with skin types 1-3, but who are not sun-tanned at the time of treatment.

IPL is used for both skin rejuvenation and hair removal.

Hair Removal

IPL hair removal treatments use light impulses to destroy the hair follicle.

Treatments required are dependant on many factors, gender, age, ethnic origin, diet, weight, hormones and metabolism are individual factors that have an impact on the result.

For IPL  hair removal you will require between 8 to 12 IPL treatments depending on your skin and hair type, having a treatment every 4 to 6 weeks. After a treatment the hair will fall out and grow back thinner and sparser.  Each follicle has its own growth cycle. A hair will grow out, fall off and then have a resting period.  It is important to shave the area at least three days before your next appointment in order for the hair to be short. There is no waxing, veeting or plucking allowed. 8-12 treatments will typically result in a reduction of 80-90% of the hair treatments with 4 to 6 weeks between each treatment required. Once you have had the predetermined amount of IPL treatments you will go onto a maintenance system to be certain all hair is removed .

Skin Rejuvenation

IPL skin rejuvenation has been clinically proven to accelerate the healing process for acne, of many types of pigmented lesions in the upper layer of the skin and quickly removing those thin, spidery veins from your face or legs. It also helps to  reduce enlarged pores.

This treatment helps with fine lines and wrinkles and gives a rejuvenating/lifting effect. It promotes new collagen and elastin fibres. It improves skin texture, improves skin pigmentation, rosacea, age spots and the appearance of sun damage.

Patients must refrain from tanning (sun,solarium and self-tanning creams) for at least 4 weeks before and after treatments.

Sunscreen is recommended after treatments.

Body treatments

 

3 in 1 Cavitation, Vacuum suction and Radio Frequency

 

Using a combination of these 3 treatments is a very effective way of treating cellulite, stubborn fatty pockets and skin tightening. 

Ultrasound cavitation breaks down the fat cells so that the fat deposit is destroyed.

Vacuum suction reshapes the area, smooths cellulite and and tightens the skin

Radio frequency promotes fat metabolism and dissolves fat. Also promotes collagen to tighten the skin.


We highly recommend you come in for a free consultation to ascertain the exact treatment you require.
