Skin Rejuvenation, Anti-ageing
Turn Back the Clock with Medical Grade IPL
Conditions such as sun damage, pigmentation, wrinkle reduction, rosacea and acne can all be treated using Intense Pulsed Light application under the careful supervision of your highly trained and experienced IPL Therapist.
When performing skin rejuvenation, amongst other Operator variables, a different light filter is used and the pulses stimulate collagen renewal in the skin to reduce wrinkles and promote a fresher younger appearence.
Medical Grade IPL Skin Rejuvenation treats the following:
- Sun damage
- Skin Tightening
Medical Grade Microneedling or Collagen
Induction Therapy (CIT)
The newest most innovative system in skin
rejuvenation using ultra fast micro needles to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin with minimal
epidermal damage. The unique Collagen Induction Pen allows needle depth to be adjusted
according to area enabling a treatment tailored to your skins needs. This makes treatment suitable
even for sensitive skin. Micro channels created in the skin allow controlled skin injury. These
microscopic channels then trigger the immune response to fill these gaps with fresh collagen and
elastin. This scientific process is referred to as neocollagenisis. The tiny channels also allow actives
to be delivered deeper into the skin allowing a much more rapid response. The treatment is
safe enough to use on all skin and colour type unlike lasers and has very little down time.
When will I see results ?
You will see a plumping effect almost immediately, however the natural healing process takes
time, so it can take up to six weeks before you see significant results - although some
improvements are often seen sooner. The process will continue over the following months and
several treatments are usually required. Condtitions treated are:
Wrinkle, Fine Line Reduction
Smokers lines around lips
What is Chemical Peeling?
Chemical peeling is an accelerated exfoliation of the skin induced by a chemical agent such as glycolic or mandelic acid. The depth and results of the peel depends on the strength of the chemical agents used, the type of active ingredients incorporated into the peel, the skin type and the skill of the operator.
Superficial peeling agents cause an increased slough of the outer layers of the skin resulting in a mild to moderate peeling. The superficial peeling will result in skin renewal and assit with the reduction or disappearance of sun damage, pigmentation, acne lesions, fine lines and wrinkles Moderate and deeper peels cause removal of the top layer of the skin, inflammation and regeneration of the lower layers.
Chemical peels are made from a variety of potent cosmedical skincare ingredients such as botanical vitamin A, natural fruit acids and enzymes.
How much down time is there?
This will depend on the type of peel used, the condition of the skin, medication taken and general health and well-being. Certain medications and health issues may be a contra indication to a chemical peel as they can increase adverse side effects.
Redness, inflammation mild to moderate peeling is a usual for 1 – 5 days post peel. The stronger the peel, the more intense the redness, peeling and downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
A skincare consultation is essential prior to a chemical peel to determine the most suitable type of peel and the recommended frequency of treatment.
Do I need to use special products at home?
For the majority of chemical peels, it is essential to thoroughly prepare the skin at home by using good quality skincare products. Specialist homecare products are recommended to use at home to maximise skincare results and minimise any adverse reactions pre and post peel.
How do I know which peel is best for me?
There are a variety of different peels available, some more intense than others. The choice of peel is dependent on the specific skin concern and quality of the skin. As a qualified Skinstitut expert I will advise you which peel is the most appropriate for you.
