Advanced Cosmetic Procedures

Non-Surgical Blemish Removal is a very safe and effective way to remove blemishes.

It is commonly known as Advanced Electrolysis and it uses a Short Wave Diathermy electrical current. The current used is safe with a localised effect being achieved in the target tissues.

How does the treatment work?
The electrical current is passed through a very fine needle (similar to an eyelash) into the tissue. The needle is so fine and localised that only the smallest amount of discomfort may experienced such as heat and possibly a sharp feeling. The heat is used to cauterise the tissue, which wounds, damages and destroys the targeted tissue. This process initiates the healing responses and eliminates the damaged tissue (blemish).

What are the side effects?

For a few days after treatment the area may be sensitive, show signs of redness and a little swelling. For deeper lesions there may be scabbing and a dressing may be applied for a short period. Provided that the correct aftercare instructions are followed and no infection is allowed to develop, the risks of scarring are minimal. However some of the deeper lesions may leave a faint residual mark on lighter skins or of a deeper pigmented area on darker skins. If you are prone to inflammatory hyper pigmentation, raised scarring or keloid scarring are issues that will prevent or restrict your treatment.

How long will the treatment take?

The time taken to treat any of the blemishes will depend on the size, number and nature of the problem. Your expectations and pain threshold can also alter how much is performed at any one session. It is important that the area is not “over worked” therefore treatments are spaced out at regular intervals. This will all be explained during the initial consultation and the progress will be reviewed following treatments.

When will I see results?

The blemish may be removed during the first treatment or take a couple of days for it to be eliminated from the body. It could however take between 4-6 weeks to see results or possibly even longer depending on the client and condition. During your consultation this will all be discussed as it is very much dependent on the individual client and the condition being treated.

What do I need to do afterwards?

You will need to consider activities you have planned with regards to the aftercare instructions to ensure you will able to follow them post treatment.

  • Keep the areas clean using cooled boiled water or mild antiseptic. Apply an antiseptic gel or cream as required.
  • If required, the area may need to be protected with a dressing for the next couple of days.
  • Do not touch or pick the area
  • Avoid exposing the area to any extremes of heat (use tepid water only)
  • Do not go swimming in chlorinated pools for one week
  • Do not have any other clinical skin treatment until the lesion has fully healed and always make your skin care practitioner aware of the fact you have received advanced electrolysis and when it was.
  • Avoid applying makeup on the area for at least 24hrs unless mineral makeup is being used.
  • To give the skin the best chances of healing do not put your body under strain for the next couple of days (gym, hair removal etc).
  • If there are any concerns contact us, or if you are really concerned contact your GP first then give us a call afterwards to let us know.

How much is it?

Treatment prices vary depending on size, quantity and type of condition. It is important not to work for too longer periods so treatments may need to short, regular and spaced out. This will be discussed during your consultation with our Aesthetics Therapist. Prices will vary, but starts from £40 for 10 minute sessions.

 

Do you have any of these that we can treat?

Skin tags

skin tags 1

Skin tags are benign growths that can vary in appearance from skin tone to dark brown. They have a genetic predisposition but often appear with increased age and in areas where there may be friction. They can often be easily removed and treated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Milia

milia

Milia is related to dry skin where normal secretions are restricted. Sometimes they are caused by poor product usage and can be aggravated by congested ingredients. They appear as small, white and often numerous lumps. Soft Milia also known as closed comedones, has the same causes. It can also look very similar however, soft milia is more of a yellow to white colour of blockages under the skin.

 

 

 

 

 

Thread Veins/ Telangiectasia

thread veins

Cannot be treated below the knee

Thread Veins are broken capillaries that are now permanently dilated. They are caused by the walls of the capillaries losing their elasticity. It can be inherited and occurs more in fine and drier skins. Harsh environmental factors such as regular outdoor activities can also contribute. Spider Naevi appears with a central red blemish with fine blood capillaries attached. Pre dispositions, trauma or pregnancy with the weight and hormone changes are common factors for its cause.

 

 

 

Seborrhoeic Warts/Keratosis

warts

May require GP approval

Seborrhoeic warts are pigmented benign growths that can be easily mistaken for moles. They can be flat or sometimes become raised and larger as it progresses. These come with increasing age due to over production of keratinocytes.

 

 

 

 

 

Blood Spots/ Haemangiomata

blood spots

Blood spots are a benign overgrowth of blood vessels in the skin. They are caused through proliferation of the cells that line the blood vessels. These are easy to treat and are common with increasing age.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spider Naevi

spider naevi

Spider Naevi are common lesions that are very small with a central red blemish. Sometimes you can see the little legs around the edges in a “spider – like “appearance. Often the cause can be pre disposition, pregnancy due to hormonal and weight changes. However if they occur singly on the face with no other Telangiectasia conditions it could be a result of trauma such as picking spots or scratching the skin.

Advanced Peels

 

IMG_4263 IMG_4209 IMG_4258

Our advanced peels deeply exfoliate the skin thereby renewing the skin and leaving it fresher, healthier and more radiant. Improve the texture and smoothness of your skin using highly active ingredients such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) & Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHAs). By removing dull, dead cells from the skin surface, open pores, blemishes and fine lines are all immediately reduced.

Our peels are tailored to address all skin concerns and give minimal downtime.

Skin Peels work best over a course of treatments, usually every week or two, dependent upon the condition being treated. We usually recommend a course 6 treatments.

The treatments can be accompanied by advanced skincare products, used at home, pre- and post-treatment, and are designed to minimise patient down time.

Medik8 Chemical Peels

Medik8 Eye Peel

The Medik8 EyePeel offers an super-gentle yet effective solution to treat these skin areas through enhanced cell turnover and regeneration.

With fewer sebaceous glands than the rest of the face, the eye area is the first place to show signs of ageing, with a reduction in tone and plumpness occurring as early as your mid-twenties.

 

Medik8 Light Peel

A Light peel treatment for breakout prone and lightly wrinkled skin, the Medik8 Light Peel works by effectively diminishing excess oil, early signs of ageing and mild scarring.

The carefully selected salicylic acid performs the essential exfoliating action, unclogging pores and clearing away dead surface skin to reveal an instantly renewed complexion.

Areas of pigmentation and age spots can eventually be lifted thanks to L-Lactic acid.

With in L-Mandelic acid and Lactobionic acid, it is a fantastic peel to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. 

 

Medik8 Beta Peel

Medik8 Beta peel rapidly controls acne and dramatically minimizes the risk of future breakouts.

Beta Peel counteracts all three causes of acne by targeting each assault individually: clogged pores, blackheads and inflammation.

Beta Peel delivers a surge of salicylic acid and azelaic acid straight into the blocked pores and follicles, helping keep the pores clear of cellular debris therefore reducing the amount of pore blockages and outbreaks on the skin.

 

Medik8 White Peel

Medik8 white peel is one of the most effective ways to achieve a brighter and more even complexion, free of dark spots and
hyperpigmentation.

White peel helps to eliminate skin cells rich in melanin and prevent the darkening of the new healthy skin cells.

Medik8 has especially designed the peel to target sun damage and hyperpigmentation problems.

WhitePeel penetrates the skin’s melanocytes to gently and effectively reduce the appearance of discolouration, for a more even skin tone.

 

Medik8 Age Peel

An effective concoction of acids to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and fade away skin imperfections, leaving the skin feeling smooth and rejuvinated. Stimulation from a chemical peel can increase the production of collagen and elastine. This element is what makes up a youthful looking complexion.

Rich in L-Mandelic acid and Lactobionic acid, agePeel is the perfect peel to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

 

 SkinCeuticals Chemical Peels

SkinCeuticals SM Gel peel 

The SkinCeuticals Gel Peel SM is great for use on problematic, sensitive or ageing skin. It is effective in repairing photo-damaged skin and reducing hyperpigmentation. The Salicylic and Mandelic acids in this peel work together to exfoliate the skin, decongest pores and reduce irritation. This light chemical peel helps improve the appearance of problematic skin and revitalises sensitive skin.

Salicylic acid is very useful for treating acne, scars, wrinkles and a variety of other skin blemishes. It works to gently remove the affected upper layers of skin, allowing the fresh, undamaged skin beneath the surface to emerge.

Mandelic acid is a form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid that is an almond extract. It offers the skin a thorough exfoliation of dead skin cells and other debris. Mandelic acid is quite effective for reducing signs of ageing and sun damage, including wrinkles, lines, brown spots and uneven skin tone. It is also less irritating than many other Alpha Hydroxy Acids.

When used in combination, Salicylic and Mandelic acids offer a valuable type of treatment, with few, if any, side effects for an array of skin issues. The SkinCeuticals Gel Peel SM formulation is very successful in helping patients achieve clearer, rejuvenated skin.

It is safe to be used on all skin types, including darker skin tones.

For optimal results, a course of 3 to 6 peels, one to two weeks apart is recommended. Thereafter, once a month for maintenance is ideal.

SkinCeuticals Micropeel

The SkinCeuticals MicroPeel 20 or 30 is a three-step clinical procedure combining exfoliation, chemical peel solution using 20% or 30% Glycolic acid and a Vitamin C firming masque, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, laxity, dullness and skin imperfections.

For optimal results, 3 to 6 treatments every 10 days to 3 weeks are recommended. Thereafter, 1 treatment 4 to 6 weeks apart  for maintenance is ideal. After a full course of 6 treatments allow a minimum of 3 months break.

 

SkinCeuticals Pigment Balancing Peel 

The SkinCeuticals Pigment Balancing Masque contains a mixture of a pigment balancing solution containing 40% Glycolic acid and 27% Vitamin C. When mixed up this solution becomes a peel which is specifically designed to brighten pigmented skin. This treatment is effective for skin with a mottled appearance or uneven skin tone. This is a stronger superficial peel with a combination of skin brightening, anti-inflammatory and peeling agents to stimulate new skin cell growth and reveal healthy skin below. Contains a high potency Vitamin C and Embilac to lighten and suppress excess pigment production. (The Masque does not contain Hydroquinone (HQ) but has similar effectiveness to prescription strength 4% HQ). For best results use in conjunction with advanced pigment corrector, Vitamin C and sunscreen.

For optimal results, 3 to 6 treatments every 10 days to 3 weeks is recommended. Thereafter, 1 treatment 4 to 6 weeks apart  for maintenance is ideal. After a full course of 6 treatments allow a minimum of 3 months break.

Those opting for a course of SkinCeuticals peels should also be using a topical antioxidant serum containing AHA’s (fruit acids) and a broad-spectrum sunscreen to get the full benefits of the peel.

As the peels are correcting procedures, you will need to use products which will prevent the new healthy skin cells being exposed to sun damage, which can counteract the benefit of the peel and result in future photo-damage problems.

Genuine Dermaroller Therapy eDS™

eDS™Skin Rejuvenation Medical Dermaroller skin needling is an established clinical procedure used as a key treatment for:

• Acne scars
• Sun damaged & ageing skin
• Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
• Stretch marks

Genuine Dermaroller Therapy™ offers amazing results without the inconvenient ‘down time’ that comes with more aggressive Laser treatments and medium and deep Chemical Peels. And because it stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself without adding foreign substances to the body or taking anything away, Genuine Dermaroller Therapy™ is a natural process which has an excellent safety profile when used by trained medical aesthetic practitioners. Due to its notable safety profile, Genuine Dermaroller Therapy™ is suitable for use on darker skins and for use during the summer months when other treatments are more risky due to the increased UV sensitivity they can induce. The treatment is fantastic for the repair of acne scars, for the regeneration of the face, neck, décolleté and the back of the hands and for the treatment of stretch marks on the body.

machineeDS™Skin Rejuvenation provides advanced, electronic, micro-medical skin needling.

A procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating SMOOTHER, BRIGHTER, YOUNGER and healthier looking skin.

Winning multiple Gold Awards for medical aesthetic skin rejuvenation Genuine Dermaroller™ medical devices have set the GOLD standard in medical skin needling.
GD™ Skin Rejuvenation is recognised for its quality,safety and efficacy assurance.

 

eDS™Skin Rejuvenation The Procedure

Your practitioner will carry out the eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation procedure using the eDermastamp™ medical device to produce thousands of micro-medical needle columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin and will be approximately 0.1mm in width. The columns will stimulate the skin to regenerate and repair itself while closing rapidly enabling the skin to recover quickly.

The precision engineering of the eDermastamp™ medical device enables your practitioner to accurately control the treatment intensity as they are doing the procedure! They can adjust the needle depth and speed depending on the area being treated and the clinical condition of the skin.

The eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation procedure has a good comfort level and this will normally be made more so by your practitioner applying a topical anaesthetic to the treatment area before hand. Your practitioner will also normally apply a Dermaroller medi-grade, hyaluronic acid based skin hydrating and enhancing solution to the treatment area to help the sterile needle tip move smoothly over the surface of the skin. Alternatively, they may use the Dermaroller CIT Advanced Mesotherapy Solution to further enhance the procedure and treatment results.
Dermaroller 3

After an eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation procedure your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to six weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

Your practitioner will normally recommend that your eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation consists of a series of three eDS™Skin Rejuvenation procedures with approximately six weeks between them. Depending on your particular skin complaint, it may be necessary to increase the number of treatments required. Alternatively your practitioner may feel that a GD™ Skin Rejuvenation treatment using the Genuine Dermaroller™ medical device, either on its own or in combination with the eDermastamp™, may be the most beneficial course of action to achieve maximum results.

Dermaroller 2

eDS™Skin Rejuvenation After Procedure Skincare

Immediately after your eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation procedure, you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after one to two hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day. Your practitioner will apply a post procedure recovery cream and mask after your treatment to help soothe and calm the skin.

Application of high level sun protection is recommended after the procedure.
Continue to apply this on a daily basis for at least two weeks even during the winter or on cloudy days.

Use tepid water to cleanse the face until the redness has gone and dry gently. Always make sure your hands are clean when touching the treated area. It is recommended that makeup is not applied for 12 hours after the procedure although your practitioner may be able to supply you with specialist mineral make-up that he or she feels would be suitable for use during this period.
In the days following your eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation procedure as the skin starts to regenerate and repair it may well feel drier than normal. Your practitioner will advise what specialist medi-grade skincare products they recommend you use to optimise your procedure.

Once the redness has cleared following an eDS™Skin Rejuvenation procedure, it is important that the skin is cared for on an ongoing daily basis with an effective anti-ageing regime. An effective regime will typically use medi-grade products to:

• provide protection from UV light
• protect and repair the skin from free radicals, DNA damage and glycation
• stimulate and regenerate ageing skin cells

Ask your medical aesthetic practitioner which products he or she would recommend for your skin.

Personalised Home Skincare Regime

To enhance your treatment results or if you simply want an effective at-home skincare routine, we can also provide advice on creating a personalised skincare regime, so there is no need to go to High Street department stores for your skincare products any more. Most High Street cosmetic products are simply ineffective due to a lack of active ingredients in appropriate concentrations.

Cosmeceutical skincare products are only available from trained skincare professionals, dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons and selected salons and clinics.

Before we recommend any products, individual skin analyses are performed to provide a customised at-home skin care regimen promoting healthy, beautiful skin.

Complimentary Skin Analysis

Using our Analysis Machine we can look for dehydration, lipid dryness, oilyness, pigmentation, build up of dead skin cells & healthy skin. Pictures can be taken on your phone to review before and after using our Cosmeutical products

Why Use Cosmeceutical Skincare Products?

If you want to go beyond pampering and really see a difference in the appearance of your skin then Cosmeceuticals are the way forward. Cosmeceuticals are skin treatments with biologically active ingredients that give visible results and provide added benefits that go far beyond other types of skincare products. The word “cosmeceutical” entered the general vocabulary in the 1990’s. Derived from a combination of the words “cosmetics” and “pharmaceuticals”, the word describes a non-prescription product for cosmetic use containing high grade ingredients which can produce dramatic results. These professional grade products have been scientifically researched and tested to ensure that they actually have an effect on the skin. A far step from the cleanse, tone and moisturise regimes of the past, they are about addressing skin concerns at a deeper level and protecting your skin from external forces, such as the sun and pollution which cause premature ageing. High Street cosmetics selling anti-ageing products containing antioxidants, peptides and retinol don’t contain high enough percentages of these ingredients to make any real difference to the skin. They are also often full of chemicals which irritate the skin.

Cosmeceutical products have the ability to penetrate the epidermis or top layer of skin to hit
the dermis or lower layer of skin. This is where collagen, elastin and pigmentation lay as well as where our new skin cells are produced.
Since the loss of collagen and elastin in the dermis is what ages us, we need to use products
that can penetrate to that level whereas general cosmetics only stay on the very top surface of the skin.
