Advanced Facials & Treatments
A Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation method that involves using a scalpel to gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion. It removes all dead skin cells and facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. It also allows for greater penetration of skin products and creates a perfect canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They’re used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions. Diamond microdermabrasion is a crystal-free version that uses a diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate instead.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretchmarks. The needles create tiny micro-channels on the surface of the skin. These tiny micro-channels stimulate a healing response in the skin, which includes increased production of both collagen and elastin.
Enzymes break down the keratin protein in the upper layer of the skin, which bonds dead skin cells together. Without this, the dead skin can gently slough off. This results in smoother, softer skin and helps diminish scars and pigmentation.Most of the enzymes used in skincare products are sourced from fruits and vegetables, such as papaya, pineapple and pumpkin. Enzymes are a great choice for those who are unable to tolerate acids and need a gentler touch.
LED (light-emitting diode) light therapy treats various skin conditions and concerns, such as acne, pigmentation, fine lines and psoriasis. Other benefits include: Increasing collagen production, reducing inflammation and redness. Multiple treatment sessions are recommended with a typical session lasting up to 30mins.
Red light- Increases blood flow, collagen production and reduce wrinkles
Blue Light- Diminish inflammation, Acne
Green Light- Improves pigmentation and fine lines
Yellow Light- Smooths skin and reduces redness
Orange Light (red+yellow)- Increases blood flow and boosts metabolism
Purple Light (red+blue)- Relaxing, improves skin
Near-Infrared Light (850nm)- Boosts skin health and increases collagen production and blood flow, improves pigmentation
High frequency is used to treat a range of concerns from skin lesions, acne, waxing procedures, fine lines, sagging skin and puffy eyes. Common areas of treatment include the face, neck and scalp but high frequency can be used on the entire body including the back. When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon, or argon gas filled glass electrode, causing it to emit a subtle glow and buzzing noise. Depending on the inert gas that they are filled with, the electrodes produce either a neon red/orange or violet/blue light.
Nano-needling stimulates collagen production in the skin by safely infusing active ingredients from your serum through tiny nano-channels. This is very similar to microneedling, but less invasive and allows up to 97% product absorption. This treatment combats fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, and other skin blemishes through the transdermal delivery system for increased effectiveness. Unlike microneedling, nano-needling does not require any numbing cream and will painlessly smooth the skins texture to leave your skin glowing by triggering your body’s self-rejuvenation process.
