Skin Peels & Advanced Skin Treatments
Our Skin Peels and Advanced Skin Treatments use a variety of different skin peel solutions to create excellent improvements to skin concerns. Different active ingredients, such as Mandelic Acid, Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Vitamin A, can create fantastic results.
Skin peels help to efficiently eliminate dead skin cells, and depending on the type of peel also assists to counteract excess lipids on the skin, unblock pores and activate the skin’s natural regeneration cycle.
Most skin peels are designed to dissolve the ‘glue’ that holds dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. It is this layer of dead cells which may give the complexion a rough, coarse, dull appearance with uneven pigmentation. When these dead cells are removed, an underlying layer of fresh cells is exposed. This layer has a smoother texture and a more even skin colour. We have Skin Peels which target conditions such as acne, congestion, breakouts, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dry skin, redness and many others. We recommend a course of treatments spaced fortnightly to achieve improvement in the skin and outstanding results.
Microdermabrasion is a very effective resurfacing cosmetic procedure that involves the use of fine, micro-crystals of aluminium oxide or a diamond tip to gently abrade the skin.
This leads to a smoother, more refined skin surface.
This treatment gives an immediately smoother complexion and encourages an increased speed of cell turnover. Microdermabrasion stimulates blood and lymph circulation which improves the amount of nutrients and oxygen available for skin cells. Cells are stimulated to produce more collagen and elastin which can assist in improving the overall strength and elasticity of the skin.
There are many skin types and conditions which will be suitable for Microdermabrasion and these clients will achieve great benefits.
- Oily, congested and thickened skin which have milia and comedones (blackheads or whiteheads) are very suited to this treatment.
- Clients with fine lines and wrinkles, as well as clients with lip lines which causes their lipstick to bleed will love the results.
- People who have hyper-pigmentation, dry skin or scaly skin will enjoy the resurfacing they get from Microdermabrasion.
We space these treatments 14 days apart and the results are cumulative therefore some clients may be happy with the smoothing they receive after 1 treatment while most clients will benefit from 4 or more treatments to achieve the desired results for their specific skin concern.
We offer a selection of different facials and there are a variety to choose from ranging from 30 minutes up to an hour. Many of our clients like to add in an extra back or body massage to these treatments for even greater relaxation.
Intense Pulsed Light Skin Rejuvenation
IPL is a very effective treatment and best as a course of treatments or when combined with other treatments. This treatment is very effective for clients who have photo aged skin with redness and pigmentation and is extremely popular for treating the face, neck décolletage and hands. IPL can also improve skin texture through collagen stimulation and minimise pore size by temporarily reducing oil flow.
Skin needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and is a treatment to improve skin texture, soften fine lines and wrinkles and we find this treatment the most effective salon treatment to soften scars.
All skin types and areas such as the face, neck, décolletage and hands can be treated. The skin is numbed with a topical anaesthetic and then skin needling is performed with disposable surgical grade stainless steel micro needles ranging in depth from 0.5mm to 1.5mm. Scarring is treated with needles up to 2mm. The treatment is extremely effective and promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin, making the skin feel smoother and tighter. The results are gradual as collagen reproduction takes time, most clients report a gradual improvement in their skin colour and texture over a 6-8 week period. Improvement a cumulative so consecutive treatments performed monthly get the best results. Improvements can be observed up to 2 years after the treatment.
