Derma Pen3™

Derma Pen can be used to treat the appearance of:

Ageing skin, Vertical lip lines, Hyperpigmentation, Skin tightening and rejuvenation, Enlarged/Dilated pores, Stretch marks Scars (acne, surgical and burn) and much more

Dermapen 3™ utilises multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin with patent-pending AOVN™ (Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needle) technology. Dermapen 3™ glides over the skin, creating millions of fine channels. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients to delivering of these nutrients deeper into the skin to feed cells in the dermis and basal layer of the epidermis.

Dermapen 3™ systematically creates micro-punctures in the skin and the body naturally responds by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to that achieved by fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. Practitioners find Dermapen™ Treatments to be more effective and more beneficial than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

When compared to traditional dermal rollers, Dermapen 3™ causes less epidermal (skin) damage, reducing levels of pain and discomfort. As a result Dermapen 3™ is a safer, more comfortable, and more effective micro-needling treatment (see image below). Dermapen 3™’s single use cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depth allows for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. Dermapen 3™ is so advanced, it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips and on the nose.

Your clinician will assess your skin and treatment area to recommend a treatment plan suitable for you.

How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks?

General guide:

Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart

Acne scarring: 6 treatments 6 weeks apart

Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments 4-6 weeks apart

How should I prepare my skin for a Dermapen 3™ Treatment?

For optimal results, an appropriate regime should be determined by your clinician to encourage the skin to strengthen (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Continue to use recommended products by your clinician after the treatments for a period of 6 weeks.

How long should it take before I see results?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.

Is the treatment painful?

For minimal needle depths, Dermapen3™ Treatments are relatively painless.

Is there any downtime after treatments?

Generally, no but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

How soon after filler/muscle relaxant injections can I have at Dermapen3™ Treatment?

While there is no clinical evidence that Dermapen3™ Treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is important to let your clinician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planning on having one done in the near future. Your clinician will be able to advise you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately.

LED Light Therapy

Who would have thought that scientific experiments conducted by NASA on how to grow plants in space would have lead to the most significant breakthrough the beauty industry has ever seen.

LED activates skin cells with pulses of low level, non-thermal light energy. The cell converts light energy into fuel (much like photosynthesis) in turns stimulating the cells to produce proteins and lipids essential for building and repairing the skin. More research confirmed that LED could speed healing, reduce inflammation and stimulate fibroblasts and collagen production, by as much as 200% within just 24 hours of treatments!

Given LED photo-stimulation can provide the skin cells with the energy to heal faster and produce more collagen it makes sense that it would also be able to fix minor damage. Trials were undertaken on sun damaged, pigmentation and wrinkled skin. One trial published in the highly respected journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that a 20 minute LED treatment for 12 weeks had a positive smoothing effect in 83% of subjects and improved skin tone for an incredible 91%! Another study in the US found that it had a positive effect on crow’s feet for 81% of the test volunteers.

What is LED Light Therapy?

LED is non-invasive with no downtime so you walk out looking and feeling great. You will see immediate results. After the first treatment the skin feels tighter, more alive due to the increased circulation, oxygenation and moisture. You will also notice a softening of the lines and folds, an increase of inner skin firmness as a result and healthy glow and skin rejuvenation.

LED technology, a scientific process that uses wavelengths in the visible light spectrum to send calibrated packets of light into the dermal layer, setting off a frenzy of cellular activity to produce softer, more youthful looking skin

SHR IPL Technology

What is SHR?

SHR stands for Super Hair Removal. It’s a huge step forward in permanent hair reduction and is the most advanced way of removing unwanted hair. SHR is faster than traditional IPL and Laser, it’s safer and it’s painless in comparison.

How does SHR work?

SHR is a revolutionary approach. Rather than bombarding your skin with high amounts of Joules (energy), SHR fires multiple shots but at low Joules. In doing  so it gently heats the hair follicle to the heat needed and the most you will feel is warmth and a tingling sensation, some clients compare it to a warm massage. SHR also Utilises In-Motion technology, where the hand piece is always in motion on the skin.

Is SHR suitable for all skin and hair types?

SHR is suitable for all skin types, even tanners, and all hair types including white. This is achievable because of the technology and techniques utilised. Unlike traditional Laser and IPL, SHR can be had all year round without having to hide from the sun.

Is there any pain?

Absolutely painless, this is achieved by SHR technology and In-Motion techniques, to give painless treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

To fully treat the area, you may require 6-10 treatments at four week intervals. A four week regime is important to maintain so that the SHR treatments get the hair at its four week re-growth. Near the end of the treatments, 6-8 week intervals will be needed to finish off your course.

Broadband Light (BBL) Technology "Forever Young"

BBL technology minimise the number and intensity of discoloured blemishes on the skin and ultimately makes skin more uniform in tone. It can treat age spots, small facial veins, rosacea, freckles and brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and even acne. Your skin will be smoother and more vibrant, and it will have a more youthful appearance as a result. A painless treatment, most often described as a shot of heat that dissipates immediately after. There is absolutely no downtime and patients may return to daily activities immediately after.

BBL reaches deep into the cell and activates certain genes associated with youth, while turning off other genes tied to ageing. As a results, you create more of the kinds of proteins and other building blocks you had when you were younger. New skin cells are actually programmed to be younger, giving you beautiful, youthful skin.

To prove Forever Young BBL really makes skin younger: Ground-­breaking research performed at Stanford University shows that BBL influences gene expression and changes skin at a molecular level. The study showed that literally hundreds of genes that are known to be associated with younger skin were activated while others, associated with aging, were turned off.

How does BBL work?

The light energy delivered by the BBL™ will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen. This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition the photothermal energy will target and eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.

 

 

Microdermabrasion

What is microdermabrasion?

It is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals or a laser. The exfoliation process rejuvenates the skin by utilising Ultra-fine crystal/diamond heads to remove the upper layer of the epidermis. Studies have shown that microdermabrasion increases the production of collagen and elastin. The final result is firmer, more youthful skin over time.

How Does It Work?

Diamond Microdermabrasion.

Diamond microdermabrasion relies on the microdermabrasion tips covered in tiny diamonds to perform skin exfoliation. When the diamond tip makes contact with the skin it abrades against the top layer pulling it off. The microdermabrasion machine then sucks the loose dead skin cells away from the face.

What Types of Results Can Be Expected?

In addition to surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis.

Microdermabrasion will minimise:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Acne & scarring
  • Dull or congested skin
  • Enlarged pores & blemishes
  • Chickenpox scars & scratch marks
  • Lighten age or sun spots

How Many Treatments Are Necessary to See the Results?

You will see results after the first treatments; however the most dramatic resukts will be seen between 4-6 treatments.

How Often Should Microdermabrasion Be Performed?

Once every 7-10 days for the first 4-5 treatments. From there a maintenance schedule of once every 4-6 weeks is usually recommended.

Is Microdermabrasion Only for the Face?

It can be performed on any part of the body.

Who Can Undergo Microdermabrasion Treatments?

Anyone interested in improving the appearance of his or her skin, regardless of skin type and age.

WHAT Does Microdermabrasion Treatment Feel Like?

Responses vary from person to person but is certainly said to be more tolerable than getting waxed.

What Is The Average Treatment Time For The Face?

Use of the equipment is typically 10-15 minutes. The entire procedure including pre and post treatment protocols is 30-45 Minutes.

What Will My Skin Look Like After A Treatment?

Most microdermabrasion systems will leave the patient red and irritated for a period of 2-24 hours. However, used in conjunction with the Magic Medi-Light the irritations and redness disappear extremely quickly. Your skin will have a vibrant healthy appearance as well as an incredibly smooth texture.

*If you have a history of herpes/cold sores, you may wish to take anti viral medication prior to treatment, to prevent an onset.

Cosmetic Tattoo

Brows

The hair stroke method has become incredibly popular in recent years, in some part due to the trend for thick yet bushy and natural looking brows that seem to be on all the catwalks at the moment. A very natural, life like looking brow can be created using the hair stroke method, which essentially is using special needle to create lots of little hair like impressions by implanting pigment in a line under the skin. The advantages are that it does look very natural, like real hair. It is perfect for people that already have quite good hair coverage, and for those who want to fill out gaps in their eyebrows where hair is missing, because the strokes can be made to mimic the natural hair present in color, thickness and angle. In younger skin, it can even work very well for creating a complete brow where little to no hair exists. It last anywhere for 6 months to 3 years, depending on a skin type.

Eyeliner

Permanent eyeliner helps women and men enhance the appearance of their eyes. It eliminates the need to outline eyelids with liquid liners or pencils and improves the appearance of missing, thin, or light-colored lashes. Permanent eyeliner allows people to swim, shower, or exercise without having makeup smudges. It provides safety and convenience to people with oily skin, vision problems, or unsteady hands. Eye doctors (Ophthalmologists and Optometrists) also recommend permanent eyeliner to patients who wear contact lenses, have watery eyes, or are allergic to regular makeup.

Lips  

Lip procedures can either enhance the beauty of well-shaped lips or re-shape lips. Properly applied, permanent lip color can correct asymmetry add definition and fullness and enlarge thin lips. Permanent lip color is a solution to emphasizing age lines around the lips and preventing lipstick from bleeding into surrounding areas. Lip liner can be applied very lightly for a soft, natural look, or heavily for a dramatic look. Although most women prefer a more natural lip shade.

*All procedures require two appointments 4-12 weeks apart, please be sure to book your follow-up appointment as well.

Laser Treatments

Emerge™ laser treatment works to improve your skin’s overall tone and texture while diminishing any pigment problems, wrinkles, or other skin irregularities.

 Fractional Laser treatment has been proven to rejuvenate skin using laser micro-beams. It speeds up the skin’s natural rejuvenation process, helping the body break up old, damaged cells quickly, leaving undamaged tissue untreated. The body’s healing process then rebuilds the treated and damaged tissue with collagen and elastin, restoring skin for a healthier look. 

The laser uses a non-ablative technique to stimulate gradual skin tightening, which causes less skin damage than an ablative laser and requires less time for the body to heal.

 The Emerge™ Laser treatment can be used on various areas including face, décolletage, hands and legs, arms and stomach to treat stretch marks. It’s the skin resurfacing solution that can give you youthful, touchable, and beautiful skin from head to toe.  Easy.  Fast.  FDA-Cleared. 

How does it work?

The EMERGE™ Fractional Laser is from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology. EMERGE™ from Palomar uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue (collagen and elastin fibres) to replace the areas of affected tissue and this will result in healthier, younger looking skin.

How long does the treatment take?!

Most EMERGE™ treatments last no more than an hour. Depending on the skin condition being treated, your provider may recommend a single treatment session or a series of progressive treatments for the best result.

How quickly will I recover?

Following some EMERGE™ treatments you may resume your regular activities on the same day; more aggressive procedures may require several days of healing.

Does it hurt?

Most people feel minimal discomfort during and after treatment. In some cases, your provider may recommend mild pain management options during the procedure and/or for a few days following the treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

You can expect to experience a temporary redness, warmth and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts only a few days. In other cases, some post-care wound management may be necessary for a few days following treatment. Your provider will discuss the potential side effects and your post-treatment expectations with you.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for EMERGE™ skin rejuvination laser?

The EMERGE™ works on most skin types, including very light and very dark skin. The EMERGE™ can refresh your appearance as well as knock out the deepest wrinkles, improve the most challenging scars and help to correct a wide variety of other skin imperfections. Your provider will discuss the EMERGE™ treatment options with you.

What results can I expect to see?

Everyone heals at various rates depending on the depth of treatment, the particular areas treated and your own health and condition. Noticeable results are typically seen in a few weeks
