Custom Skin Health Facial
An all-encompassing facial for those who would like a bespoke treatment. The Custom Skin Health Facial is entirely personalised to your own unique needs. The consultation will inform your treatment, from which your therapist will draw from a selection of different techniques to cleanse, calm, clarify, refine, boost and nourish your complexion.
We recommend this treatment for first-time clients, this is can be a wonderful introduction to our practice.
Camera Ready Facial
The perfect pre-event treatment for a flawless, clear, illuminated complexion. A deep cleanse and exfoliation with ultra-fine diamond microdermabrasion ensures a perfectly clarified base. Supported with a customised antioxidant peel, hydration infusion and firm French Massage work to boost circulation and increase your epidermal water content. Finished with calming light therapy. The skin is left radiant and lit from within.
MG Regime Facial
Suitable for most skin types and the ideal treatment for promoting and maintaining optimal skin health. A meticulous buff and diamond exfoliation will prepare the skin for an infusion of enzymes and dermal boosters that encourage intercellular communication and growth. Finished with Light Therapy and hydration, the skin is left clarified, nourished and radiant.
Hydrating Glow Facial
A luxurious treatment that counteracts transepidermal water loss brought on by stress, sleep deprivation, and a less than virtuous diet. Following a thorough cleanse, AHA peel and hydration infusion, the skin is then cocooned in a hyaluronic mask while the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated by soothing Light Therapy. The perfect treatment for a pre-flight boost or as a gift for a recipient who already has everything.
Cleanse & Calm Facial
An anecdote to problem, seborrheic, acneic and cystic skin conditions. The Cleanse and Calm Facial is designed to soothe and gently clarify the complexion. After the skin is carefully cleansed with Sonophoresis, a deep gentle peel and a nourishing cocktail of dermal boosters are applied to the skin to encourage detoxification and pacify any inflammation or discomfort.
A classic gommage facial elevated with diamond exfoliation and a personalised infusion of enzymes, Alpha Hydroxy Acids and dermal boosters. Designed to thoroughly exfoliate dull, congested and lacklustre complexions, the result of which is nothing short of radiant.
Ultimate Collagen Facial
A dynamic treatment that addresses a multitude of concerns ranging from dilated pores, atrophic and hypertrophic acne scarring, textural irregularities, fine lines, and wrinkles, Collagen Induction Therapy is employed to refine, retexturise and accelerate collagen renewal in the deep dermis. An infusion of stem cells, growth factors and hydration boosters, combined with 830nm Light Therapy, improve cellular communication and the structural integrity of the skin. Results are cumulative and a course of treatments is recommended for best results.
Bespoke Laser Facial
I started to incorporate lasers and IPL into my work around 2002 and immediately loved this aspect of treating skin. It excited me for two reasons; used properly the technologies delivered true results, and said results could be produced over a matter of weeks.
Effective in treating concerns from sun damage to scarring, loss of elasticity to redness and textural irregularities, each experience can offer new results from client to client and treatment to treatment. As with all aspects of practice, every element of each Bespoke Laser Facial is customised entirely for the individual. Downtime is minimal, but the results are lasting.
Medical SUBLATIVE™ Skin Rejuvenation
This retexturising treatment is one of the most effectual in our repertoire at correcting more significant surface inconsistencies related to acne scarring, distended pores and deeper set wrinkles. Using customised fractionated radiofrequency to heat the skin, this treatment initiates a contraction in connective tissue in the dermis and ablates the deeper layers of the epidermis. This instantly stimulates the skin’s healing responses, activating intercellular communication and stimulating regenerative tissue. In short, the skin rapidly deposits collagen to the treated areas, remodelling and resurfacing the complexion into a smoother, finer and plumper surface.
In many cases I have seen excellent results after only one treatment, though depending on individual skin needs, subsidiary treatments may assist in achieving the optimal outcome.
One of the most prominent skin concerns that arises in my daily practice is hyperpigmentation. It comes in a variety of types, the effect of which also differs greatly from individual to individual, though in its basic form materialises as brown patches, marks, splotches over the face, neck and decollete.
Hyperpigmentation is caused by excessive sun exposure, hormone imbalances, inflammation and injury to the skin. In many cases, hormonally induced pigment is notoriously difficult to treat and this by no means calls for a one-size-fits all solution. Known as Melasma or Chloasma, this type of pigmentation can often be exacerbated by laser-based treatments. However, I have achieved remarkable results with depigmentation peels. Suitable for all skin types including darker, this treatment addresses melanic inconsistencies, brightens and unifies skin tone as well as improving the texture of the skin.
Dermamelan is a modified, more intensive peel with a 30% increase in strength from its milder counterpart, Cosmelan. Suitable for those with notably significant or severe pigmentation. This treatment addresses melanic inconsistencies, improves skin quality and evens its tone and texture. Procedurally, this will include a series of in-clinic peels and a home care package. Some downtime is to be experienced, so we will happily accommodate your schedule to plan your course of treatments.
Cosmelan is a modified, gentler version of the Dermemalen peel, suitable for those with mild to moderate pigmentation. Procedurally, this will include a series of in-clinic peels and a home care protocol. Some downtime is to be experienced, so we will happily accommodate your schedule to plan your course of treatments accordingly.
FRAXEL™ Skin Rejuvenation
A tried and tested resurfacing treatment, Fraxel has become a trusted name due to its comprehensive results. Especially great for those with severe sun damage and coarse skin texture, it utilises fractionated laser technology to remove pigment as well as refine the texture of the skin, resulting in a brighter more even complexion and smaller pores with reduced fine lines.
With enviable results after only one treatment, Thermage has been deemed by many as an effective and non-invasive skin tightening treatments. Thermage is a wonderful, clinically proven option for those who are seeking an intensive non-invasive approach to achieving a plumper, more lifted complexion with little to no downtime.
Using customised settings, I love the firming effects our bespoke treatment offers by stimulating a contraction of tissue in the dermis through a unique combination of bipolar Radio Frequency and discrete light energy to heat the tissue. In conjunction with 830nm Light Therapy cell division is activated, thickening and firming the skin. And on most occasions only one intensive treatment is enough to offer remarkable results.
