Paramedical Skin Care
Skin analysis methods of the past are no longer sufficient to give
the knowledge we require about the health of the skin. Accuracy is
required to achieve visible and measurable results from skin treatments
and products. Our complete and professional skin analysis includes
the use of skin diagnostic devices which are valuable in providing
proof in the changes of the skins health.
We collect data using:
· The Skin Scanner
· Magnifying Lamp
· Facial Analysis Image Processing
· Skin Diagnostic Unit
· In depth consultation
The Facial Analysis Image Processor takes photographs of the skin
and utilizes 3 light sources in order to aid diagnosis.
· White light which provides a normal light image
· Polarization light which shows up area of spots and pigmentation
· UV light which shows up porphyrins and sebum
This device is used to analyse pores, wrinkles, sebum, pigmentation
and skin tone.
We make use of a skin diagnostic machine to digitally measure lipid,
hydration, melanin depth, and erythema levels. This device is very
accurate and even the most difficult skin conditions are easily diagnosed.
The Skin Scanner makes use of “black light” which allows
the therapist to look “behind” or “through”
the skin in order to see far more detail than is visible with the
naked eye. The skin scanner aids in evaluating pigmentation, skin
density, and sebaceous secretions.
It is highly recommended to book in for a skin analysis consultation
before starting any facial treatments. This will enable the therapist
to make personalized recommendations based on the needs of your skin.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive method of improving the skin’s
texture and appearance. The therapist uses a hand piece which emits
fine crystals onto the surface of the skin, mixing gentle abrasion with
suction to remove the dead outer layer of skin. This technique exfoliates
and gently resurfaces the skin, promoting the formation of new smoother,
clearer skin. By removing superficial layers of the skin, microdermabrasion
allows new skin to appear and even stimulates the production of new
skin cells and collagen.
Microdermabrasion can be used to successfully treat:
· Rough skin texture
· Certain types of scarring
· Uneven pigmentation
· Age spots
· Fine lines
· Open pores
· Dull, devitalized skin
Microdermabrasion is usually performed on the face, neck and décolleté,
but can be performed on any part of the body (such as the back of
After even one treatment you will notice improvements in texture,
and the appearance of refreshed looking skin, but as with other skin
rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to
reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
Ultrapeel® Transderm® can be considered a virtual syringe, allowing
transdermal delivery of active substances without the use of a needle.
This treatment is performed using Dermoelectroporation® technology.
Dermoelectroporation® uses electrical pulses that are controlled
in value, time duration and electrical characteristics which the skin
can tolerate with no adverse side effects. These electrical pulses
temporarily alter the lipidic components of the cell membrane, forming
watery channels in the cellular membrane that opens the pores. These
alterations allow the penetration of a large variety of products that
would otherwise be prevented from entering the skin.
Dermoelectroporation® technology boosts the transdermal delivery
rate to approximately 5 times the rate normally obtainable with a
This procedure is non-invasive and painless, and can be used to treat
a variety of skin concerns including:
· Dull, dehydrated skin
· Acne conditions
· Loss of skin tone and elasticity
· Sun damaged skin
· Fine lines and wrinkles
Excessive dead cell build up and poor skin function contribute to
wrinkles, fine lines, premature ageing, pigmentation, blackheads and
These dead and dying skin cells remain attached to the younger underlying
cells, resulting in a dull, devitalized skin. To remove this build
up the therapist performs a series of enzymatic treatments.
Enzymes, which are nature’s biological catalyst work by:
· Hydrolysing dead cell build up
· Increasing oxygenation for tissue regeneration and repair
· Increasing cellular activity, improving skin function
· Opening the vascular system for superior skin nourishment
· Encouraging the formation of new collagen and elastin for
tighter, firmer skin
· Removing toxins, debris and gases from skin cells, leaving
a clearer, cleaner complexion
· Activating lymphatic drainage to eliminate waste materials
Releasing anti-oxidants to fight and combat free radical damage that
causes premature ageing
Peels are used to remove the over-thickening of the dead layer of cells
from the skin. This layer of dead skin cells contributes to wrinkles,
fine lines, pigmentation and sun spots. With regular peels this outer
dead layer is removed and the skin becomes firmer and smoother, even
in colour and texture. A series of peels may be needed to obtain optimal
results on a specific skin concern.
Actions of peels are:
· Smoothes wrinkles
· Improves sun damaged skin
· Helps eliminate and control pigmentation
· Helps uneven skin tone
· Smoothes uneven skin texture
· Stimulates cellular growth while increasing collagen production
What is the Dermaroller?
The Dermaroller is a device studded with extremely fine needles. It
is used to stimulate collagen production in the skin.
What does it treat?
The Dermaroller can be used for the following conditions:
· Skin rejuvenation of lines and wrinkles
· Acne scarring
· Post-operative scarring
· Increase the skins elasticity
Lam Probe helps to remove those unsightly minor skin irregularities
that bother us. The Lam Probe works on the principle of liquids being
attracted to heat which is released by various probes. Treatments
are very quick (some within a few seconds), and may not even touch
the skin's surface. Small skin tags or blood spots disappear immediately
and hyperpigmented areas such as liver or "age spots" take
only a few seconds. There is minimal discomfort and healing time is
Treatment can be done on:
· Skin tags
· Cherry Angiomas
· Facial thread veins
