What is Microdermabrasion and what does it do?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that rejuvenates the skin on your face & neck.  It deeply exfoliates the skin’s ageing, damaged, outermost layers to reduce imperfections, sun damage, blemishes, certain types of superficial acne scars, fine lines and uneven pigmentation. Whilst aged, dull surface skin sheds naturally in the young, as we age this process slows, allowing a layer of dull, thickened skin to accumulate and to obscure the healthy radiant skin below.  A series of Microdermabrasion It stimulates the collagen renewal system in our skin.  Around the age of 25 the skins collagen renewal system slows right down and this is when fine lines and damage starts kicking in.

Would microdermabrasion be good for Me?

Microdermabrasion is most effective for Clients, with early signs of little fine lines from ageing.  Teenager benefits reduce mild acne scarring, helps clogged pores, pigmentation and the blotchy skin surface.  Microdermabrasion is great for most age groups.

How many microdermabrasion treatments will I need?

Though softer, smoother, clearer skin is noticeable after a single treatment.  To stimulate the skins collagen renewal system.  Also for optimum and lasting results may require a series of 6 to 8 sessions.    6 weekly then 2 to 4  spaced at 2-3 weekly intervals, depending on the condition being treated and the quality of your skin.   Monthly sessions are recommended to keep the skins renewal system at its optimum.   Single microdermabrasion is great for special occasions.  Especially combined with Collagen or Vitamin Infusions, and IPL Rejuvenation.

PLASMA

Aesthetic Multi-Plasma Solution

HISTOLOGY AND PENETRATION 1. Immediate tissue contraction is accomplished via thermal denaturation of dermal collagen 2. Thermal disruption of epidermis and activation of fibroblasts stimulate a wound healing cascade necessary for neocollagenesis. It does not produce explosive vaporization and is more uniform than with ablative lasers because plasma does not depend on interaction with a chromophore. The procedure induces a formation of a dry membrane or scab on skin surface, which peels off few days after the treatment.

What can be expected during treatment? The area to be treated is cleansed and coated it with anesthetic cream that take effect within one hour. Once the procedure start heat sensation and a little pain may be felt. Following the procedure, small black or brown ‘carbon crusts’ on the treated area of skin will be present.

How long will it take to recover from the Plasma Wave procedure? After the treatment some swelling may be present, which should settle in 48 to 72 hours. The carbon crusts on the skin will normally disappear with 4 to 10 days. During this time the treated area cannot be touched or scratched , as it may cause pinkish skin discoloration (hypo- or hyper pigmentation). How many sessions are needed?The amount of sessions needed varies from patient to patient and their individual concerns. For eyelid lifts, for example, 3 or 4 sessions may be required, usually every 6 to 8 weeks. Is PLASMA WAVE permanent? The effect of the procedure is considered to be permanent. However, the ageing process continues. Follow up procedures may be needed to maintain the results.

WHAT IS PLASMA? Plasma is the fourth state of matter: Liquid, Solid, Gas and Plasma. Plasmawave™ Plasma Device The Plasmawave™ plasma device creates genuine plasma output not an electrical current. This plasma arc permits precise 'soft surgery' such as skin tag and mole removal as well as effective non-surgical blepharoplasty (eye lid correction) and other treatments using sublimation, fulguration and electro coagulation. The device provides safe acne treatments using a plasma ring with a disposable patch. Plasma lifting utilises a 500Hz modulated frequency which is specialised for deep wrinkle treatments. Additionally, the device has permeating and fractional tips which allow treatment to boost the trans dermal absorption of cosmetics.

Plasma Tip The Plasma Wave machine conductor tip creates a tiny plasma flash from the tip (similar to a tiny lightening bolt). The tip does not need to touch the skin. The plasma lightning jumps from the tip to the skin and evaporates, leaving a very small superficial brown carbon spots that look like freckles. There is no heat to the surrounding skin. These small spots draw the skin together in their direct environment and shrink the excess skin. We follow a specific pattern to set the points to look like a grid (a reduction grid). This is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that shrinks excess skin, bags and wrinkles! This treatment protocol is also used for other areas of the face/body. The principle is to ionise gases in the air to create a small electrical arc, similar to a tiny lightning bolt, with which the areas affected by aesthetic problems may be treated, without unwanted damage to surrounding areas. The plasma causes instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres causing shortening and tightening of skin fibres, thus resulting in the reduction of the skin surface.

TIGHTENING ————————>

The final result is an improvement of the firmness and tension of the skin (lifting effect). Since Plasma energy affects the deeper dermal layers, the result is a lifted contour, a decrease in deep wrinkles, thicker and firmer skin. Plasma promotes new collagen protein which causes the original collagen protein to strengthen the skin.

PLASMA BEFORE AND AFTERSTRAININGS

Skin Needling

Skin needling is a skin rejuvenation treatment, helping restore collagen and elastin through a natural healing process.    Ultra-fine, medical quality needles create multiple skin punctures that induce a wound healing response that stimulates new collagen and elastin production.  New collagen and elastin improve skin quality and texture, making the skin feel firmer and smoother. Helping repair acne scars, fine wrinkles, stretch marks and surgical scars. Skin needling involves minimal downtime.

How does skin needling work?

Thousands of tiny puncture wounds induce the release of growth factors, that begin the process of wound healing. These factors stimulate new collagen and elastin growth in the surrounding skin. New collagen and elastin production is quintessential for all skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.   Skin Needling instantly stimulates new collagen production. It has been found to continue for up to 12 months, resulting in an improvement in skin firmness, texture and a softening and lifting action on scars and wrinkles.

Acne scarring can get great results in the skin appearance.  Even when the scarring has been present for many years. Skin needling is very effective when tackling acne scars, fine lines, dull skin, sun-damaged skin, or ageing skin.

How many sessions and aftercare?

Skin needling can involve a course of 3 to 5 treatments,  A numbing cream will be applied half hour before your procedure to ensure your comfort. You might see immediate redness that will disappear in 1 to 3 days.  You can wear Makeup the next day.

Skin Needling with followed up Microdermabrasion is just perfect for a full skin revamp. When done on a regular basis including Vitamin infusions it’s been said to reduce the visual ageing effect.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light)

In Advanced Beauty IPL is used to get true Results.  The technology uses a high-powered, hand-held, computer-controlled flashgun to deliver an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light, generally in the visible spectral range of 400 to 1200 nm. Various cut off filters are used to selectively filter out lower wavelengths, especially potentially damaging ultraviolet light.  The resulting light has a spectral range that targets specific structures and chromophores (e.g. melanin in hair, or oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels) that are heated to destruction and reabsorbed by the body.  IPL shares some similarities with laser treatments, in that they both use light to heat and destroy their targets. But unlike lasers that use a single wavelength (color) of light which typically matches only one chromophore, and hence only one condition.    IPL uses a broad spectrum that when used with filters, allows IPL to be used against several conditions. This can be achieved when the IPL technician selects the appropriate filter that matches a specific chromophore.

IPL Hair Removal

These very specific pulses go through the skin where they’re absorbed by the hair root. This causes the follicle to shrink reduces the hair density.

IPL works on the pigment within the hair, preferably the darker the hair the better results.

It will take up to 3 weeks for the hair to shed out of the follicle.  The treated follicle normally don’t regrow,  however, if the hair is strong or not enough heat was absorbed into the follicle hair can reappear.  Normally following treatments the hair will be destroyed and no hair will regrow.
 This depends on the hair growth pattern see chart below

.hairgrowthsystem

 Anagen Hair Growth Stage     This stage is the beginning phase of hair growth. This is when the hair is visible on the skin and is still attached to the papilla. The papilla is a knoblike vascular indentation of the bottom of the hair follicle on which the hair bulb fits. (Definition courtesy of dictionary.com) This hair growth Anagen phase is ideal for  IPL hair removal because since it is still attached to the papilla the light can attack the papilla and prevent any new growth. This stage lasts for about 2-4 weeks and occurs for both facial and body hair.

Will the hair be gone forever?   Some hair will still grow back as there are millions of tiny little hair follicles.   There is no guarantee that every single hair follicle will be destroyed.  You can expect up to 80% or more hair reduction.  Yearly maintenance sessions for most people is required.

6 Sessions are recommended and for most clients depending on suitability.  Refer to below.

Suitability for IPL or Laser Hair Removal

Eye masks are used to protect your eyes and vision during the procedure.

Topical gel is applied to your skin to prevent overheating.

You may like to take a pain-relieving medication, used as recommended on packaging to make the procedure more gentle. (*usually half hour before procedure).

The entire procedure is quick to complete, although the exact length of time, will depend on the number of areas and the size of the areas.

The procedure may be slightly uncomfortable, like a small stinging or slight burning sensation.  After the procedure, it might feel as if you had been slightly sunburned for about 12-48 hours.  Small possibility, although not common, you may develop a slight blistering or scabs following IPL.

IPL is not as effective on very dark or natural tanned skin in comparison to fare or pale complexions.

For the first two to Three weeks after a treatment, blemishes or spots may actually darken before fading. Capillaries will appear a brighter red for the first 3 days after treatment.

After treatment, we advised spending anywhere from two to five days out of direct and prolonged sun exposure. Avoid direct hot water streams directly on the area when in the shower, bath and pools.

Depending on what you’re looking to accomplish, you will likely need to schedule multiple IPL treatments, potentially up to half a dozen. IPL sessions are spaced four weeks apart.  Your accomplishment desires and for optimum overall results may take 6 treatments over 6 months, to see your final results.  * Series is for more problematic conditions, and people who may simply just love the results of their skin looking at it’s optimum without having invasive expensive procedures.
