FAQ'S AND OFFERS
Do you have a PLAN for your SKIN this winter?
For your skin to have long term results, it requires some planning and dedication! Yes, you can obtain excellent dramatic results after one treatment, but those results also require maintenance.
Most of our deeper skin treatments require preparation for a few weeks in advance, and appropriate post treatment care.
What you put on your skin EVERY DAY at home is the MOST important part of a good skincare plan!
Also, one size does not fit all. What one client needs for her skin, may not be what your skin needs.
Winter definitely allows for deeper in-salon skin treatments.
We also realise that sometimes all the products and treatments become overwhelming and you don’t know where to start!
We would like to assist you with this. We can suit a plan to your lifestyle and budget.
* we are offering FREE skin consultations for all our clients
* from Monday, we will be posting a WINTER SPECIAL every day for 5 days - they will be valid from May until August.
In addition to these WINTER SPECIALS, we have a Mother’s Day May Promo to get you and a friend started on your skin journey.
Our TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peels provide significant improvement of sun damage, general pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, rough/thickened skins, some scarring and overall skin rejuvenation.
The treatment takes 30-60 minutes, and requires 5-8 days of 'downtime.'
During this time the dead skin cells lift off the surface of your skin, stimulating the metabolism of the cells underneath.
The 'downtime' period is mostly only unsightly due to the peeling, and not too uncomfortable. You can resume most daily activities immediately after the peel.
A post-procedure product is used during the peeling stages.
Clients having this treatment are required to use a 'tyrosinase inhibitor' product (prevents pigmentation) 10 days prior to the treatment, and after the skin has healed. You may even be using a serum like this already.
A medical-grade sunscreen is recommended for ALL clients, but is essential during and after this peel.
These peels are only done in autumn/winter (little/no sun exposure for 2 weeks after is advised), and are suitable for specific skin types.
Those at risk of PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) are recommended other suitable treatments)
A client is usually recommended 2 TCA peels over winter for optimum results. (with a good gap in between them)
Our TCA peels come in different strengths - the appropriate peel is chosen for your specific skin.
The 35% is our strongest TCA peel and only for very specific clients. Those having the 20% TCA will have less ‘dramatic’ downtime.
Our special is for the face and upper neck area.
If you would like to treat your chest area (often an area with a lot of sun damage!) please chat to us to adjust the special.
Many of our clients who have had these peels before, now do them every winter!
* please note: results will vary from client to client, depending on various factors.
Maintenance is key!
Our MPEN used for MICRO-NEEDLING is an excellent quality professional device.
It creates a tiny punctures in the skin, causing a natural wound-healing effect.
Sterile active ingredients e.g. Vitamin C/retinol, are able to penetrate deeper into the skin.
In addition to the benefits shown in the diagram, needling is extremely effective for acne and congestion in the skin.
The needle depth used in a treatment will vary, depending on the skin and the desired results. Deeper needling makes use of a topical anaesthetic.
Needling can be done throughout the year in addition to a peel, or on its own. It is a treatment for EVERY client, and is part of a normal anti-ageing and skin maintenance program.
The ELAINE BRENNAN GET-GLOWING MICRO PEEL is a unique treatment which offers superb peeling benefits, but that is safe for ALL skin types and it can be done throughout the year.
The key active ingredients are salicylic acid, resorcinol and kojic acid.
Benefits are overall rejuvenation, and an improvement in all kinds of pigmentation. It is especially good for acne and oily skin clients.
You can have 3-4 Elaine Brennan peels in succession, 3-4 weeks apart, or only 1 peel.
When used in combination with needling (spaced 5 days apart), it provides even better results.
Cosmelan and Dermamelan from Mesoestetic is the leading pigmentation treatment worldwide.
It is especially suited for stubborn melasma and hormonal pigmentation. Added benefits are the improvement in acne (congestion) and overall skin rejuvenation.
The in-salon peel (once-off) with the home care is a minimum of a 9 month treatment plan. It requires commitment from the client, but the results are so worth it!
It is a safe, controlled treatment for all skin types and it can be done throughout the year.
Prices for the in-salon peel and home care products for the first 3 months start at R13 875.
The home maintenance kits after this, are less 15%.
Plasma is the fourth state of matter.
We use a medical CE plasma device that that has a few ways of working.
1.) Ablative Plasma for Skin Tightening:
This creates controlled and mild damage to the skin which stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce more collagen in the treated area. Collagen continues to generate for 4-6 weeks after. Results are lifted, tighter and smoother skin.
Ideal for anywhere on the face, as well as the abdomen area post pregnancies.
Suitable for specific skin types.
2-3 sessions per area usually advised.
A week of downtime with strict pre/post protocol.
2.) Ablative Plasma for Benign Skin Lesion Removal:
This removes anything from skin tags, moles, verrucas, xanthelasmas, dpn's (dermatosis papulosa nigra), sunspots (especially for hands) and seborrheic keratoses.
Suitable for all skin types.
The skin heals within 1-2 weeks.
3.) Non-Ablative Plasma for Skin Tightening
The electromagnetic current stimulates and tightens the dermal skin cells, resulting in increased collagen production and stimulation of angiogenesis for health cell renewal.
Usually 10 minutes per area treated.
Can be done as often as twice per week.
All skin types can have this treatment.
No downtime at all.
Dr Alex Cornell is available for all your medical aesthetic requirements.
Anti-wrinkle injections (BTX) almost immediately reduce fine lines and wrinkles, especially in the upper part of the face. They last around 3 months. They can also be used for the treatment of a down-turned mouth, and jaw clenching.
Bionutrilift is a excellent duo of two treatments: ART dermal fillers & NCTF.
NCTF is an anti-ageing cocktail of 59 ingredients including hyaluronic acid.
The two solutions are mixed together and gently injected superficially into the skin. It restores hydration and glow to the skin, and lifts the face. Collagen and elastin production are stimulated, and fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed.
The cheek, perioral or eye areas, as well as temple areas are particularly suited to this treatment.
The results last 12-18 months.
