This treatment involves tiny superficial injections of a potent skin rejuvenating cocktail of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants into the skin. When this cocktail is injected across the skin barrier to where it can have an effect, it promotes the production of collagen and elastin, all while stimulating the skin’s metabolism. Unlike topical treatments which treat the top layer of skin, Mesotherapy works from within the skin to promote collagen, elastin, and cellular rejuvenation.

If you feel that you are having any problem, please call us, so that we may assist you

How many treatments do I need?

Whilst you may see some very minor benefits after a single superficial peel. We recommend a course of six peels, one or two weeks apart (depending on your skin type and skin conditions).

After a course of six peels you can have a once monthly maintenance peel or wait for three months before embarking on another course of peels.

Semi-Permanent Makeup

Semi-Permanent makeup is a type of cosmetic tattooing that applies pharmaceutical grade pigment to the skin. The aim of the treatment is to give the appearance of natural make up that perfectly complements your skin tone using the right combination of pigments to enhance your natural features.

CryoPen™

CryoPen™ is an advanced cryotherapy innovation that is a fast, effective and safe solution for removal of skin imperfections. Procedures typically last about 30 seconds, so you can be in and out of the med spa quickly.

The Cryopen™ offers the ideal treatment for:
Skin Tags
Pigmented Spots
Warts
Seborrheic keratosis
Milia
Cherry Angioma
Verrucae

What is the treatment process of the CryoPen?

The CryoPen emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure to freeze the fluid in the target area. This can successfully remove the tissue, because we can rupture it from the inside-out. Treatment is incredibly precise, so no healthy tissue will be affected during the process.

What can this treat?

We can safely and effectively treat a wide range of skin blemishes on the face and body. These include skin tags, warts, verrucae, pigmentation, milia and cherry angioma.

Are there any side effects to this treatment?

You may experience some slight discomfort during the procedure. This may feel like pressure being applied to your skin, but it should only last a few seconds. After the procedure, you may experience some stinging in the affected area. This should subside within the same day as treatment and is completely natural.

How long will my results last?

The results achieved by the CryoPen are permanent, though they cannot prevent you developing new blemishes. It may be necessary to have more than one session to achieve your optimum results.

How many treatments will I need?

In some cases, just one treatment can yield your optimum results. However, it is common for clients to need more than one treatment session to ensure you achieve your best results possible.

Global Eyecon Treatment

The most complete and effective solution to combat the signs of ageing and fatigue in the periocular area.

Perfect for fine lines, wrinkles, under eye bags, dark circles and even drooping upper eyelids.

Global eyecon is a convenient, effective programme combining both a peel with a trans-epidermal solution – both exclusive for the periocular area – achieving visible and cumulative results after the first session. A solution created with products specifically developed for this area, with excellent skin and eye tolerance to achieve the maximum therapeutic efficacy. The global eyecon periocular treatment protocol is a programme comprising of 6 sessions, alternating 3 periocular peel sessions with 3 trans-epidermal sessions.

How does a treatment look like?

The 1st, 3rd and 5th sessions consist of application of the periocular peel, a specific peel for antiaging and antifatigue treatment of the eye contour containing ingredients with depigmenting and antiaging action. It has a gel-like texture preventing product migration for greater safety during application.

During the 2nd, 4th and 6th sessions, the periocular solution is used which is a transepidermal solution containing ingredients with depigmenting and decongestant action in the microcirculation. It is suitable for vehiculation with microneedling.

After using the microneedling technique, the crystal fiber eye mask will be applied, a hydrogel mask with depigmenting, moisturising and antifatigue action that provides soothing, freshness and comfort after the treatment.

Cosmelan Treatment

What is Cosmelan?

Cosmelan is the world’s leading hyper-pigmentation ‘removal’ treatment, that can be used to treat Melasma, Chloasma, as well as post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (PIH), caused by injury or acne.

What is hyper-pigmentation?

Skin hyper-pigmentation is caused by abnormal production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour and a consequence of uncontrolled, localized overproduction of melanin inside the melanocyte, which causes irregular skin colouration and dark spots

What makes this peel different?

Cosmelan has an exclusive combination of active substances that have proven efficacy, acting on all phases of the hyper-pigmentation process;
– Eliminating existing hyper-pigmentation on the skins surface
– Preventing its reappearance
– Stopping the appearance of new dark spots.

The treatment is safe for use on any skin type and usually only one treatment is required to see a significant improvement of the skin. In 99% of the cases there is a reduction in hyper-pigmentation by up to 95%.

I Pixel

The Pixel laser is a resurfacing laser that can dramatically improve one’s skin without significant downtime or discomfort. This laser is ideally suited for the treatment of sun damage, fine lines, resistant pigmentation, acne scars, roughened textures, and enlarged pores. It may also help reduce fine lines and skin laxity on the face, neck, chest and arms and hands with little to no downtime.

What does fractional resurfacing mean exactly?

Fractional resurfacing lasers are very exciting because they offer significant skin improvements with relatively little to no downtime. Compared to traditional resurfacing lasers that target the entire skin surface, fractional devices only target small areas of the skin (like individual pixels in a camera) with each laser pass. The idea behind this technology is that if only a fraction of the entire skin surface is hit with the laser then the healing time will be much faster and the downtime greatly reduced. The normal skin surrounding these laser hot spots will in essence allow for more effective tissue healing and production of collagen.

A significant advantage of the Pixel laser is that no topical anesthetic creams or messy gels are necessary for treatment. Treatment is described only as a mild heat sensation with no real pain by most patients.

How does I Pixel work?

The I Pixel laser is an FDA-approved resurfacing laser that creates small microscopic wounds within the skin that heal and stimulate new collagen production that in turn tightens and smoothes out the skin’s surface.

How many treatments are required?

Most patients see a significant improvement in the appearance of their skin after the first treatment. Depending upon the condition of your skin and the body location being treated, the average patient requires two to five treatment sessions for best results.

Is it painful?

The I Pixel laser treatment is very well tolerated and has almost no discomfort – a significant advantage over some other fractional resurfacing devices. A mild burning sensation may occur towards the end of treatment but this is usually very mild in nature and lasts only a short while (30 minutes to three hours).

Where can the I Pixel be used?

The I Pixel is safe to use on virtually any area of the body. It is most commonly used to treat sun damage and aging changes on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. It may at times be used in conjunction with other lasers depending upon the condition of your skin. Your skin looks brighter, fresher and more relaxed within a few weeks of the procedure.
