Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Laser Genesis treatments for your face.
State-of-the-art treatment for fine wrinkles, sun spots, acne and red cheeks
Our IPL and Genesis skin laser treatments complement each other and are interchangeable. Your therapist will recommend the best option for you, which may include a combination of both services.
Laser Genesis is more subtle over time in that it does not disrupt the skin surface. The laser energy stimulates new collagen growth by ‘worrying’ the dermis (the layer below the skin surface) causing it to go into repair mode. Pore size is reduced so that fine lines and pitted skin flattens out, resulting in plumper, firmer looking skin.
With IPL, high intensity light pulses help to remove freckles, age marks, sun spots, uneven skin tone and mild to moderate acne. This light energy goes below the skin’s surface where unwanted brown pigment and small veins are. The energy breaks the pigment into tiny particles that are either reabsorbed by your body or come to the surface and eventually slough off.
IPL hair reduction
IPL is also effective for hair reduction. We treat: arms, underarms, legs, back, chest, face, upper lip, chin, outer bikini line. Note: IPL does not work on blonde, grey or red hair.
Plus we also offer facial medi-treatments – these are lactobotanical peels that are powerful, yet gentle. The facial encourages skin renewal through exfoliation, while also hydrating your skin.
State-of-the-art laser treatment for your legs and face – watch spider veins on your legs and face fade.
- spider veins – our laser gently heats the spider veins so they collapse and eventually improve or fade away
- recent scars – if your scar is less than 12 months old, our laser may help reduce the redness.
DYSPORT® TREATMENTS (botulinum toxin)
Dysport injections block signals from the nerves to the muscles, which means the muscles can’t contract and keep their shape. This relaxes and softens the fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
For sweating treatment, Dysport injections block the signals to the sweat glands so less sweat is produced.
- excessive sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis).
- ageing or lined facial skin: forehead lines, crows’ feet (lines around the eyes) and frown lines.
- areas on the face to help prevent wrinkles.
Dysport® is a Prescription Medicine containing 500 units of Clostridium botulinumtoxin type A toxin haemagglutinin complex for injection.
It is used for the treatment of frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet and for the treatment of severe primary hyperhidrosis of the axillae.
Dysport should be administered only by trained medical professionals. Dysport has risks and benefits.
