If you’ve ever wondered what these actually mean, we’re clearing the air, and make it easy for your understand. No jargon or long words, just the facts.
VPL Photo Rejuvenation
Variable Pulse Light (VPL) Photo Rejuvenation is a treatment which safely pulses high energy light through the skin surface, targeting a range of skin concerns from sun damage (age, sun spots and pigmentation), broken capillaries to uneven skin tone and texture.
This treatment can be used on the face, neck and back of hands.
Fractional C02 laser
Let’s break it down: Fractional, means we are only treating very small areas, approx. a 1cm square at a time. CO2, is attracted to water which is found in the deepest layer of the skin (basal layer). Laser, is the heat that is used to penetrate the skin in very fine holes, and damage the cells below. This controlled damage is used to train the cells in the basal layer to grow back stronger, firmer, and faster.
This is our most advanced skin treatment. It’s designed to treat the signs of damaged skin by correcting skin tone, firmness and texture while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen Induction (dermal rolling)
Collagen Induction (often referred to as dermal rolling) is a treatment we use to improve skin texture, scarring, plus lines and wrinkles.
This skin treatment uses a dermal roller - a surgical instrument with nearly 200 extremely fine micro-needles of medical grade stainless steel. These fine needles cause tiny micro-wounds within the lower layer of the skin and stimulate collagen production. Over a course of treatments, collagen fibres strengthen and elasticity is increased, resulting in a stronger, firmer layer of skin.
A glycolic is a fruit enzyme peel we often add to facials or microdermabrasion. A Glycolic helps exfoliate away dead skin cells to reveal fresh, healthier skin below.
