SSR Skin Rejuvenation

SSR offers skin rejuvenation to improve the appearance of aging, marked and sun damaged skin, uneven skin tone, pigmentation and rosacea, scarring, visible capillaries, large pores, freckles and fine lines. The process is gentle with no down time. This latest technology repairs skin defects using low energy, short pulse broadband light. Imperfections are gently heated and eliminated and are then replaced by newer, younger looking skin. The most commonly treated areas are face, neck, chest, arms and hands. The sensation during treatment is described as a 'hot pinch' or 'snapping' feeling which only lasts for a fraction of a second. Warmth and/or a tingling sensation is experienced for a short time afterward. The number of sessions required varies and depends on the condition being treated but typically a progressive series of 4 treatments at 3 week intervals is recommended. Skin will continue to improve for up to 6 months.

SSR is also used in conjunction with Microdermabrasion for improving the appearance of facial scarring, which is an unfortunate but common outcome of chronic acne. Acne scarring can affect both the colour and texture of the skin. Scarring often creates uneven pigmentation in the form of redness or dark spots. Because SSR can target pigment cells specifically, it can be effective for evening out discolouration, which dramatically reduces the visibility of acne scars and gives the appearance of a more uniform skin surface.

SHR Permanent Hair Removal

The Super Hair Removal (SHR) method is a revolutionary new solution for permanent hair removal for both men and women that is virtually pain and side effect free. SHR leaves beautiful bare skin without complications. The light in certain wavelengths along with the SHR heat, targets pigment and melanin located in the hair follicles. Flashes of light disable the targeted hair follicle, causing the unwanted hair to fall out, preventing future growth. The heat also disables the cells responsible for new hair growth.

The large surface area covered by the specialized hand-piece enables fast and effective treatments, which are possible without the requirement to have hair grow out. Since hair growth cycles are not synchronised, multiple treatments are required to also target dormant follicles and accomplish permanent hair reduction. Sessions are recommended at 4 week intervals until desired result is achieved.

IPL Vascular Treatments

Intense Pulsed Laser (IPL) therapy helps to diminish the appearance of certain types of vascular imperfections with no incisions, no downtime, and minimal discomfort. IPL can clear away superficial vascular skin defects including broken vessels and spider veins. Pulses of light target broken vessels at the surface of your skin without harming surrounding tissue. As a result, you enjoy clearer skin that looks younger and fresher. Depending on the area treated, vessels may disappear immediately, while some lesions especially those found on the lower legs can take longer (up to 10 weeks in some cases) to diminish. Typically 3 to 5 sessions are needed for maximum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. Individual treatment plans vary but usually 2 week intervals are recommended.

IPL Acne Treatments

If you suffer from active inflammatory acne, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a safe, non-surgical option for significantly improving the condition of your skin. During IPL acne treatments, short pulses of specific wavelengths of intense light are emitted from an applicator onto your skin. The light and heat energy produced by the IPL system penetrate into the pores and induce the release of chemicals (free oxygen radicals). It stimulates porphyrin to eliminate Propionibacterium acnes (P. acne’s) bacteria, treats inflamed sebaceous glands that contribute to breakouts and coagulates the blood vessels of acne lesions. For effective treatment of severe acne patients typically start with weekly sessions.

A consultation to arrange an individual treatment plan is recommended.

Microdermabrasion

This is an effective alternative to more expensive and more invasive procedures. It is an effective, non-surgical way to exfoliate the top layers of the skin. No chemicals or laser beams are used. Our professionally trained, clinical staff target a stream of fine crystals over the area to abrade away old, dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with gentle suction. The treatment provides effective exfoliation and rejuvenation of the superficial layers of the skin, leaving it smooth and fresh. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production, helping your skin rejuvenate faster than normal. Also called the lunchtime peel, microdermabrasion is fast, effective and has no downtime.

It has proven to be effective in the treatment of the following conditions: fine lines; enlarged or clogged pores; mild acne and complexion issues; sun damage; superficial age spots; scaly skin lesions also called keratoses; hyper-pigmentation; uneven skin tone; oily skin; dry/patchy skin; acne scarring; black/white heads; stretch marks; dull, lifeless skin.

If you are looking to ‘freshen up’ tired or aging skin, facial microdermabrasion is a chemical free solution that is suitable for all skin types.

Hydrodermabrasion

Hydrodermabrasion is an advanced exfoliating and re-oxygenating method. Instead of using small particles, it uses oxygen and water to improve skin imperfections, scarring and pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. It has the extra benefit of moisturising the new layer of skin underneath the old one, leading to less swelling and redness, and longer lasting results. The process facilitates hydration and purifying of the treated area, opens access to the skin's inner layers, allowing for deeper cleansing.

This technology therefore offers a powerful alternative to other, more abrasive or invasive procedures with no pain or downtime. Hydrodermabrasion is commonly used on the face, neck & décolletage areas. However, it can be easily administered to any body area that requires smoothing, deep cleansing and hydration such as the hands & feet, chest & back areas and even the elbows! Great for unclogging pores and removing blackheads. Hydrodermabrasion can be used on sensitive fragile skin to soothe and cool.
