What is Microdermabraison:
Microdermabrasion uses an adjustable applicator head that removes dead surface skin cells and initiates cellular turnover at the dermis and epidermis levels in a safe controlled manner. This approach respects the integrity of the skin and promotes even healing. Maintaining even cellular growth on the surface aids in the youthfulness of the skin’s appearance.
Microdermabrasion has been used to treat aging and sun-damaged skin, some types of acne and acne scarring, altered pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks. Results may include improved skin tone, fewer breakouts, diminished appearance of scars, even skin color, refined skin pores, renewed elasticity, and a healthy glow.
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
Peels (AHA's + BHA's):
A chemical peel is an intense exfoliation facial treatment in which a solution, usually containing AHA or BHA’s, are applied directly to the skin surface to remove the top layers of the epidermis. Depending on the strength of the peel, layers of skin either flake or peel off over a period of 3-4 days after, revealing smoother skin. These treatments are typically used to treat wrinkles, pigmentation, scars but can also rejuvenate the skin when used as a mild form.
Radio Frequency Facials:
Radio Frequency, or RF, is a type of localised heating. This treatment has been used in the medical field for over 30 years. This procedure has rather quick results and requires no downtime. The tissue is heated to a specific temperature that the therapist constantly monitors, resulting in more fibroblast cells that tighten the skin and cause lipolysis (which is the fat cells being heated to drop excess liquid fat out of the localised area). This interesting and revolutionary new technology produces favourable outcomes such as circumference decrease, improved skin texture, increased firmness and laxity.
What is LED? LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can be used on the face and body. It has no recovery/down time for the client, as it does not cause trauma to the skin, and suits most skin types, Fitzpatrick and conditions.
