How does it work?

The skin heals itself when damaged collagen fibers are replaced by new fibers under the surface, a process called neocollagenesis; pigmented and vascular lesions are removed when necrosis (cell death) is induced through selective photothermolysis. Therefore, skin imperfections are replaced with clearer, more youthful looking skin.

 

What changes will I see?

Skin Rejuvenation targets several components in the skin. The results will amount to a reduction in:

Age spots

Sunspots

Fine lines

Medium wrinkles

Large pores

Elastosis (lack in elasticity)

Dull skin

 

How many sessions will I need?

A total of 6-8 sessions is recommended for Skin Rejuvenation. Our skin regenerates itself approximately every 28 days, depending on the person. While our skin cells are working, the collagen in our skin is working as well. Our job is to make the genesis of collagen quicker to promote the regeneration and look of youthful, healthy skin.

How does it work?

IPL’s energy is transformed to heat and is targeted towards pigmentation, which in this case are the hairs. Active growth follicles are targeted coagulating the follicle and limiting re-growth. Our IPL treatment offers a variety of parameters that cater to clients of all skin types, hair colours, thicknesses and densities ensuring solutions to all clients.

 

What changes will I see?

 A few days after the first treatment, hairs will fall out and hair regrowth will be noticeably slower than normal. Approximately 30 percent of the hairs in the treated area will be removed. With continued sessions, even more improvement will be noticed.

 

How many sessions will I need?

Due to the hair growth cycle, multiple treatments are necessary to see satisfying results. The growth cycle occurs every 3-4 weeks, which means new hairs that were not treated will appear. Because of this reason, an average of 4-8 (maximum of 12) treatments will be recommended.
