Cellulite

Cellulite is one of the most common complaint in aesthetics. This is when the skin has an underlying fat deposit that gives a lumpy or even a dimpled appearance. It normally occurs on the thighs and buttocks and is very popular among women. The expansion of fat cells in an area causes fatty bulges and the shortening of septa causes dimpling and the lack of elasticity and thickness gives the appearance of saggy loose skin.

Hair Removal

Shaving can cause ingrown, abrasions, razor bumps, irritation and most importantly cause the hair to grow faster coarser and darker. 
Plucking, threading and waxing on the other hand is very painful and cause irritation on the skin and some discolouration.
Laser hair removal is a beam of concentrated light and heat that destroys the hair follicle while simultaneously protecting the surrounding skin.

Our top reasons for choosing laser hair removal:
1. It gives you effective results over time - giving you long lasting and permanent hair reduction results 

2. It is the safest method on the market because it is precise, targets the hair follicle and will leave the skin undamaged around it, leaves skin smooth and soft 

3. Faster than any other method, as patient comes once a month and has no need to shave every day or wax in between

4. Long term solution hence it saves money 

5. You can treat all body areas 

6. Painless and bloodless


When choosing hair removal, choose a place with a skilled doctor and a machine that is FDA approved for all skin types.

If you struggle with the following skin conditions:  pigmentation, skin rejuvenation, antiaging, rosacea, open pores, sunspots and broken blood vessels, on both your face and body, Intense Pulse light (IPL) is the perfect procedure for you. This technology delivers an intense broad spectrum light that destroys specific chromophores by heating them up, and this is reabsorbed by the body. When treating lines and wrinkles the light bypasses the epidermis and gently heats up the cells in the dermis forcing collagen production.

1. What sets IPL apart from all other treatments is that it can handle all skin structures so all forms of skin conditions can be treated on one person.

2. It’s a comfortable treatment no numbing creams are applied before the treatment. 

3. Very effective, most cases improvements are seen after just one treatment.   

4. IPL stimulates collagen which enhances rapid healing.

5. It takes less than 30 mins to treat a full face, suitable for a quick lunch treatment.


WHAT TO EXPECT
Generally, 6 treatments are needed with 3 weeks intervals in between. A mild swelling and redness can be seen after the treatment, however, when treating veins the face always looks redder. Crusting could occur lasting a few days after the treatment.

*SPECIAL*
