Technology is changing the face of the cosmetics and esthetics industry. Not only is it broadening the spectrum of treatments that are available, but it is also ensuring that all therapies and solutions being delivered are as safe and effective as possible.
We are delighted to offer our patients the benefit of some of the latest and greatest technological advances in the treatments that we provide, here in the comfort of our modern esthetics facility.
HydraFacial is an innovative new approach to helping patients achieve healthier skin, a glowing complexion, and a youthful appearance. Contrary to what its name might suggest, it is not just another facial. HydraFacial focuses just as much on the health of your skin as its appearance. In doing so, it enables patients who experience it to have unrivaled confidence in their appearance.
HydraFacial uses advanced, patented vortex technology to perform a superior cleanse of the skin, while also delivering specifically chosen, botanical ingredients that contain nutrients essential for skin health. These include hyaluronic acid, copper, zinc, and magnesium peptides. HydraFacial also delivers a much-needed boost of antioxidants directly into the skin. These are extremely valuable since damage caused by free radicals, which is caused by pollution, stress, and UV light, can degrade the skin and accelerate the aging process even further.
There are various types of HydraFacial’s and our team can help you to decide which is the most suitable to address your cosmetic requirements.
Bleeding is a common effect of most types of invasive and even some minimally invasive surgeries. If this bleeding is naturally controlled, then it usually isn’t anything to be concerned about. However, there may be instances where your surgeon must take control of the bleeding to stop it. Electrocoagulation is used to stop bleeding in both superficial and deep surgeries. It is especially popular in facial treatments, and many people consider it to be a very effective alternative to laser procedures as it can both remove and evaporate skin tissue, even in small and delicate areas such as the skin around the eyes and nose. It has been shown to be successful in the treatment of vascular lesions, skin tags and warts, non-cancerous growths, and skin cancers.
A hyfrecator is a special piece of low-powered medical apparatus that is used in electrosurgery including electrocoagulation. This portable machine comes with three power settings, giving us complete control over the application of the treatment. The machine delivers low power to evaporate damaged tissues and blood vessels, leaving your skin with an uneven texture and tone. It also activates the natural healing process which triggers the production of healthy, rejuvenated skin.
This non Invasive thermal body and skin contouring solution is clinically proven and has been used on celebrities like Chrissy Tiegen, Kourtney Kardashian, and Paul Abdul. This treatment is perfect for patients who are looking to reduce loose or aged skin. Treatments are tailored to fit your needs and reshape your body to create a slimmer appearance. We can also service multiple areas of your body at the same time to provide you with a new shape and no downtime.
Microdermabrasion is a very popular form of cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates and refreshes your appearance so that you look years younger. The process involves using fine crystals to exfoliate the top layers of skin away, revealing fresh, new skin beneath. Although it is most often carried out on the face, it can be performed on the neck, back, chest, and hands too. Once complete, a microdermabrasion procedure can reduce and even eliminate the effects of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and scarring, as well as making the skin appear smoother and younger.
We are delighted to offer patients the latest microdermabrasion techniques using NuBrilliance – a very popular and effective device that removes the outer layers of skin (known as the stratum corneum) and vacuums them away. With multiple different exfoliation pads for precision, delicate and coarse areas, and different suction levels, NuBrilliance leaves patients with a significant improvement in the appearance and texture of their skin.
The RevealÒ imager shows skin imperfections in astonishing clarity. Whilst this may seem shocking, it empowers patients to know exactly which areas of their appearance are standing between them and a more youthful appearance. The RevealÒ imager also enables us to make the most accurate treatment recommendation that will deliver the results that will transform your skin and enable you to enjoy a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
RevealÒ provides high-resolution images that clearly illustrate red and brown skin components, showing where skin damage has occurred, including brown age spots, lines, wrinkles and sun damage. We can zoom in and magnify specific areas of concern, as well as providing 3D visualization. The RevealÒ imager also enables aging simulation that will simulate the aging process to show patients older or younger by 5-7 years for wrinkles, spots or both.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that lives in our skin. It is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps to keep skin hydrated, supple and flexible. One molecule of hyaluronic acid alone can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. However, as we age, our natural production of hyaluronic acid slows down, causing our skin to lose moisture. This can lead to it becoming dull, lackluster, and loose.
Many esthetic treatments focus on improving the appearance of the skin and reducing/eliminating signs of aging by reintroducing hyaluronic acid back into the body where it plumps and hydrates. In many treatments, which are known as ‘fillers’, this is done using injection. However, the Hyaluron Pen makes it possible for patients to receive all of the benefits of hyaluronic acid fillers without the use of needles. This handheld device, which looks and feels just like a pen, contains enough pressure to force the hyaluronic acid into the skin without a needle. This minimizes the discomfort, risk of bruising, swelling, and other side effects associated with conventional filler treatments. The Hyaluron Pen can be used on both the face and lips.
The majority of modern esthetic treatments are delivered via injections into the skin. However, this can be uncomfortable and time-consuming for patients, with some even feeling that they cannot take advantage of these successful solutions because they dislike needles. Fortunately, alternatives to single injections are starting to make their way onto the market. One of these is AQUAGOLDÒ.
AQUAGOLDÒ fine touchÔ is a patented gold-plated micro-injection system that is designed to deliver custom solutions into the skin at the recommended depth of 600 microns which enables the products to be directly absorbed into the dermis. However, unlike single injections, the AQUAGOLDÒ device has 20 ultra-fine gold-plated needles, each that is finer than a human hair. This enables larger areas to be treated at once, and the needles are so small that the treatment is completely painless. The needles also create many micro-injuries which then need to heal, triggering the production of collagen and elastin which helps the skin to appear smoother, refreshed and rejuvenated.
AQUAGOLDÒ fine touchÔ can be used to deliver a wide variety of substances including hyaluronic acid fillers, neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport, PRP (platelet-rich plasma), stem cells, pigment reducers, and other products.
As we get older, skin laxity becomes something of a problem. This is because our body stops producing as much collagen and elastin – two building blocks of skin that keep it firm and elastic. As a result, many of us dream of firmer, tighter skin. ULTRAFORMER can make this dream a reality.
ULTRAFORMER is a revolutionary piece of equipment that uses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology to improve skin laxity and tone, enabling patients to benefit from smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin on the face and neck. This is achievable without the need for invasive surgery or the downtime associated with conventional facial anti-aging treatments such as facelifts or neck lifts. The ULTRAFORMER device delivers the HIFU energy directly to the dermis where it stimulates the production of collagen in the deeper levels of the skin, prompting the skin tightening process. Since collagen production will be ongoing for some time, patients can continue to see an improvement in the appearance of their skin for some weeks and even months after their treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP for short, is a fairly new but highly successful treatment that is being used in several ways in the cosmetic treatment industry, including promoting hair growth and encouraging soft-tissue healing. All blood contains platelets. These are special blood cells that have several roles. The most well-known of these is promoting blood clotting so that we don’t bleed excessively if we are injured. However, far fewer people realize that platelets contain proteins in the blood that help wounds to heal. Studies have found that injecting areas of the body with platelet-rich plasma, it can encourage wound healing.
An increasing number of esthetic treatments are now utilizing PRP therapy. This is because once re-injected into the skin, it helps your body to repair itself and produce more collagen, resulting in improved skin-tone, smoother texture, and a plump and more vibrant complexion.
PRP is produced using your own blood. However, in order to separate the platelets from the rest of the plasma, a device called a centrifuge is needed. This device creates a spinning force that separates different substances from within one blood sample. This is because the centrifugal forces push heavier materials to the outside of the sample so that they can be extracted. We are delighted to have our very own centrifuge enabling us to take, process, and deliver PRP therapy right here at our offices, without needing to send your blood away.
Advanced radiofrequency technology is proving to be a game-changer in the esthetics industry. This technique enables specialists to target the deeper layers of the skin with energy to encourage healing and rejuvenation. Meanwhile, micro needling – a technique that creates hundreds of tiny wounds into the skin to encourage healing and the regeneration of healthy, new and younger-looking skin are also popular. EndyMed combines both RF technology and micro needling into one solution.
EndyMed is the first FDA-approved non-insulated motorized micro needling radio-frequency technology. This hand-held device has completely unique needles that can be adjusted based on each patient’s requirements. They also require fewer passes per treatment. This equates to shorter treatment times and, more importantly, greater patient comfort. Patients can also benefit from a shorter downtime and fewer side effects from treatment, such as less bruising and bleeding. Combined, these advantages make EndyMed one of the most popular solutions on the market.
EndyMed can be successfully used to treat a range of skin problems including acne, acne scarring, deep lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture and stretch marks.
Finding veins buried deep within skin tissue isn’t always easy, particularly if you have darker skin or skin discoloration. However, there is a solution that can help. It is most commonly known as a vein finder or vein viewer and it uses infrared technology to illuminate the veins, enabling professionals to find them. The way that vein finders work is fairly simple. The hemoglobin in the blood absorbs the infrared light so that there is a reduced amount of light reflection from the veins. Next, a custom detection system uses this change in reflection to determine the vein location and pattern, digitally projecting it onto the surface of the skin.
There are various types of vein viewing systems available including the AccuVein AV400 vein viewing system and the VeinLite LED Skin Transilluminator. These are adept at detecting veins that are as much as 10mm below the skin, making injection administration simple.
One of the areas of the body that is most affected by sagging, loose skin in the neck and jawline. As we get older, our skin naturally loses volume and elasticity thanks to the decrease in the production of collagen and elastin. When this problem combines with gravity, it can cause the skin around our jaw and neck to sag, reducing the definition in the face and making us appear older than we actually are. BBL SkinTyte helps keep this process at bay. Using advanced infrared light, it heats the deeper layers of the skin while keeping the skin’s surface cool and comfortable. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing process, encouraging collagen and elastin production which causes the skin to become firmer, smoother, tighter and more youthful.
Halo Laser is a proprietary laser-based treatment that will provide a noticeable improvement to various concerns such as scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and sagging skin. This laser targets deep tissue and provides instant results with minimal time and discomfort. By targeting collagen cells, this treatment promotes new tissue to grow, thus achieving a more youthful appearance. This laser produces long-lasting and natural results in a quick 15-minute treatment session that is safe and effective for all areas of the body with no downtime.
As you age, your skin can lose its luster due to sun exposure and as part of your body’s natural aging process. In turn, your skin develops fine lines, sun spots, and your skin can dull. The Halo Laser can precisely target and eliminate the damage and restore your skin.
