IPL Treatments

Posted by Jeffery Palmer on

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). The focused, broad-spectrum light is applied to the surface of the skin by way of either a hand-held wand or an articulated arm. This light travels through the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the bulb (root) of the hair. The bulb is usually where the highest concentration of melanin is located, as opposed to the rest of the hair shaft. As the light is converted to heat energy, the bulb and most of the hair shaft are instantly vaporized. The intense heat radiated by the hair also destroys the hair-producing papilla. It is also claimed that direct light-heat conversion occurs directly in the darker colored capillaries that bring nourishing blood vessels to the follicle. At any one time, not all hair follicles are ‘active’, and only active hair follicles can be affected and destroyed by the treatment. ‘Inactive’ hair follicles can be treated as they become ‘active’ over time. For IPL treatments an average of 8-10 treatments are required to remove most visible hair.

Diamond Microdermabrasion Facial

Posted by Jeffery Palmer on

Microdermabrasion is an effective exfoliation treatment to accelerate and promote cell turnover. Diamond tip microdermabrasion works by combining an abrasive diamond tip applicator with vacuum suction to remove the build up of dead skin cells. The diamond tip applicator glides over the skin and lifts away dead skin cells while the vacuum suction sucks the debris away from the face. 

Microdermabrasion is successful in treating skin conditions such as

  • fading dark pigmentation
  • increasing cell turnover
  • refining skin texture
  • reduce pore size 
  • smooth acne scarring
  • promote collagen and elastin production 
  • clear blackheads and congestion

Your treatment begins with a standard cleanse and tone to prep the skin. this is followed by the microdermabrasion component where the skin is thoroughly exfoliated, working is small areas at a time while the skin is held taut. Depending on your requirements and skins tolerance, the micro is followed with an active serum application which will effortlessly absorb into the fresh skin (some temporary stinging may be felt) followed by moisturiser application and eye cream.
