Dermaplaning

As we age, our cell turnover decreases and this affects our skin texture and tone, Dermaplaning gently buffs the top layer of dead skin cells away helps to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion leaving skin ultra-smooth and perfectly prepped for make-up, so it takes on an “airbrushed” finish.

Dead skin cells make your complexion look dull and contribute to clogged pores and spots. Dermaplaning clears the way so skin peels, facials, skin products and serums can get down into the skin where they need to be rather than sitting on the skin’s surface. It also removes peach fuzz / vellus (fine) hair on the face and creates clear channels into the skin as well as a soft, smooth surface for makeup to glide on flawlessly.

What happens during dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is done with a sterile  micro-blade held at a 45-degree angle and brushed along the surface of the skin to remove thin layers of excess skin cells and fine hairs. The treatment is completely painless and does not require any numbing prior to treatment.

Will my facial hair grow back darker?

Not at all. Hair on the face is a type known as villous hair, rather than the dark, thick terminal hair that grows elsewhere.  Shaving does not in any way cause vellus hair follicles to transform into terminal hair follicles.

What happens after the treatment?

You will notice an  increased glow to the skin, evening of complexion, reduction of hyperpigmentation, improved skin tone, reduction of ‘peach fuzz’ vellus hair. Skin may be a little pink immediately after treatment but this normally subsides within an hour or so. Peach fuzz / vellus hairs do not come back thicker and stronger. It will grow back at exactly the same rate, thickness and texture as before.

Repeat treatment is recommended once every 1-2 skin cycles (approximately 6-10 weeks).

 

Ultra Peel Microdermabrasion

By age 35, almost 50% of the skin’s ability to consume and retain oxygen has been impaired. Less oxygen results in more wrinkles, fine lines, and dull looking skin. 

Microdermabrasion results in a constant stimulation of cell renewal by the process of removing the excess dead skin cells from the stratum corneum (the top layer of the epidermis). This method for rejuvenating skin on the face and neck can improve fine wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, soften acne scars, and reduce enlarged pores.

Why should I consider the Ultrapeel?

Your skin is the first thing people notice about you. Mattioli Engineering’s Ultrapeel microdermabrasion systems have been providing people around the world with healthy, glowing skin for more than 15 years.

What is Ultrapeel Microdermabrasion?

The Ultrapeel microdermabrasion systems are the most popular microdermabrasion devices among doctors and skin specialists in the United States. Microdermabrasion uses crystals to perform progressive abrasion of the skin. The crystals, called corundum, gently polish the skin.

A sterile handpiece is attached to a tubing system through which corundum crystals are propelled at a high speed across the skin’s surface, thus gently abrading the top layer of skin. The used crystals and dead cells are then vacuumed.

The final result is smooth, healthy, and glowing skin!

What is the Ultrapeel used for?

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blemishes
  • Acne
  • Dull, congested skin
  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Oily skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Scars

Is the treatment comfortable?

Ultrapeel microdermabrasion treatments are very comfortable. Those with sensitive skin may experience a mild scratching sensation at the beginning of the treatment.

Will I experience any downtime?

Depending on the level of treatment you desire, a temporary light redness of the skin may appear at the end of the treatment, especially for sensitive skin types.

Microdermabrasion is often called the “lunchtime peel” because you can have a treatment and immediately resume normal activities. You may put on makeup following the treatment.

The Ultrapeel II microdermabrasion system represents the most innovative and technologically advanced medical microdermabrasion systems suitable for Dermatologists, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons, Medical Doctors and Aestheticians.

  • Facial and body peeling
  • Ageing Skin
  • Dry, oily, dull congested and blemished skins
  • Open pores and wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Stretch mark reduction
  • General dermabrasion

You can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations. The results you get from microdermabrasion are cumulative. Generally, six treatments are scheduled approximately 14 days apart.

A series of 6 treatments is usually recommended for optimum results, with 2 weeks in between for skin to recover. The entire procedure usually takes just under 30 minutes for the face. 

 

 

A-Lift (non-surgical facelift)
A-Lift is a highly-effective, non-invasive facial treatment that uses the latest technology to deliver proven results.

How does it work?
The A-Lift machine uses three phases of microcurrent and two phases of nanocurrent technology to lift, tone, and re-energise the cells in the face and neck. A-Lift increases Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) production within the cells to accelerate their metabolism. In other words, A-Lift helps the skin cells boost their own functionality to stimulate the production of more collagen which helps combat fine lines and wrinkles.

What results can I expect?
The treatment promotes improved hydration, circulation, and lymphatic drainage which results in firmer, healthier, and rejuvenated skin with a fresh and visably improved complexion.

The technology works with the skin and creates a personalised treatment that is unique to each client. Throughout the treatment the nanocurrent reacts and adjusts itself to mimic the skin’s own bio-electric frequency. It works with the skin, for the skin!

Due the athermal and atraumatic nature of LED Phototherapy, is it safe, pain free and beneficial for all skin types, all skin conditions and all ages, all year round.

How does LED phototherapy work?

While we often associate light exposure with negative effects such as skin ageing and damage, light also has many positive influences on the body. It helps us produce vitamin D and provides energy and serotonin for example. It can also accelerate tissue healing.

The differences between the positive and negative effects of light are the amount and the parts of the light spectrum we are exposed to. Whilst on-going exposure to UV is very damaging, controlled levels of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial.

The Dermalux treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which energise cellular activity with proven therapeutic effects. Skin cells that are energised function better and regenerate faster which in turn leads to younger, healthy and radiant skin.

Dermalux® uses evidence-based wavelengths delivered at a skin-enhancing intensity and dose to activate cellular renewal and repair, boost the manufacture of collagen and elastin, reduce inflammation and destroy acne causing bacteria.

Will the results be seen right away?

Following a Dermalux® treatment, there are some immediate visible changes in the skin but most changes occur naturally over a series of treatments.

Dermalux® offers immediate visible improvement in skin tone, hydration and overall radiance whilst simultaneously stimulating cellular processes for long lasting benefits in appearance and health of the skin.
