Advanced Facial Treatments
Superficial skin peels stimulate skin cells, promote collagen levels and encourage elastin production for firmer looking skin. Old surface cells build up, harden, and lose moisture dehydrating the skin’s surface causing congestion. The superficial peel clears away the old to make way for fresh, new, beautiful skin.
What are Chemical Peels?
Peeling (exfoliation) is a natural process. Chemical peeling is an accelerated form of exfoliation induced by the use of a chemical agent. Peels are really a matching game. You need to successfully match the depth of the peel with the depth of the problem you are trying to correct. There is no reason to do a dermal peel to correct an epidermal problem, and it is a waste of time to do an epidermal peel to try to correct a dermal problem. All the same, there are very few people who would not benefit from some type of skin peel.
What are the Safest and Most Effective Peels?
TCA, Phenol and other strong acid peels work via a process of destruction. Destruction chemical peels injure the skin causing inflammation, burning and even blistering – requiring a downtime healing process from 7 to 10 days. Destruction chemical peels may have a long-term negative impact on the ageing skin. We know that cells have a finite number of cell divisions in our lifetime (programmed “ageing” regulated by telomere-length reduction after cell division), we now know that repeated “destruction” of viable living epidermis associated with harsher chemical peels may actually lead to more rapid onset of ageing in later years! Superficial Chemical Peels in low concentration and with a buffered pH (such as those in the PRIORI® line) are the safest method of skin exfoliation. They accelerate the results of home-care products and work via induction rather than destruction. They do not destroy living tissue, do not increase cellular mitosis, but do stimulate the skin to produce essential compounds such as collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan’s necessary to produce vibrant healthy skin. Ph. Buffered Lactic Acid has been shown to stimulate Hyaluronic Acid deposition in the dermis by 70- 95% more effectively than any other AHA. This is because Lactic Acid (natural to the body) is the “wound-healing” AHA that mimics how the skin would naturally “heal” itself via a Hyaluronic-Acid-and-Collagen response mechanism.
Why Peels Are More Popular Than Ever?
The last 25+ years of Cosmeceutical-strength skincare has highlighted those “exclusive”, “ground-breaking” ingredients that have survived the test of time and the distance. In fact, there have only been three:
1. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) as a compound
2. Vitamin A
The popularity of AHAs is now such that large European Skincare Houses that once feared and eschewed AHAs now incorporate them into their top-of-the-line anti-aging skincare products. Consumer demand for younger-looking skin and treatments that show visible results enforced the change. Importance of Home Care Chemical peels are only one step in the skincare program. It is important that they are tailored to each patient/client. You should discuss your expectations with your therapist in order to satisfactorily achieve desired results. Chemical peels account for approximately 30% of total skincare results. An effective home-care program (those 5-10 minutes twice a day) will always account for the other 70%.
– The type and number of products used for home care usually depends on severity of problem, speed of results, and the need for long-term maintenance.
– Product selection depends on skin type and condition, desired results, and time period in which those results are to be achieved.
– Home-care products can be used in addition to, rather than instead of, regular cosmetic products.
Peels and a Peel Program:
For best results begin professional home-care twice a day for 10 days prior to the first peel. Peel courses are usually 3, 6 or 9 treatments, one per week, to deliver maximum results. Similar to a fitness program for the skin.

WHAT IS LED THERAPY?
Work by NASA proposed that Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) had potential benefits in the medical community. Using this knowledge coupled with our understanding of how light interacts with the body Photo Therapeutics Inc. have developed a range of light devices for the medical and aesthetic communities.
The OMNILUX™ gives aestheticians direct access to medically and clinically proven technology for their clients. OMNILUX™ enables the aesthetician to deliver specific colours or wavelengths of light critical to achieving excellent results for skin rejuvenation, acne and can be used in combination with other aesthetic therapies to enhance results.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN OMNILUX™ TREAT?
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Wound healing and scar reduction
WHY CHOOSE OMNILUX™?
Unlike any other light therapy device on the market, OMNILUX™ is based on many years of medical research. OMNILUX™ is used extensively by 3300 dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide. The efficacy and safety of OMNILUX™ is very well documented in over 60 peer-reviewed publications. This ensures you have powerful results. OMNILUX™ efficacy claims for wrinkles and acne treatment are substantiated by over a decade of clinical evidence, evidence in short supply from the new quick-to-market entries in the LED light category.
HOW DOES OMNILUX™ WORK?
OMNILUX™ works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing and clears acne-prone skin. OMNILUX™ features three interchangeable LED light treatment heads, each with a different colour of light, or wavelength; each head has up to 1700 evenly-spaced diodes which emit a specific narrow band wavelength of light that is proven effective for the condition being treated. Using different combinations of the LED treatment heads means that aestheticians can deliver effective treatment protocols for acne, skin rejuvenation and for the reduction of peri orbital wrinkles.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?
Our therapist will remove any make up or sunscreen for you. Safety eyewear will be provided to you during treatment sessions, as the light will be positioned close to your face. Each treatment session will take approximately 30 minutes. You will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during and after a treatment.Following your 20 minutes session, you can go right back to your normal routine.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM OMNILUX™ LED LIGHT TREATMENTS?
It depends on the specific condition of the skin you need to treat. Skin rejuvenation treatments using red and near infrared light will have a significant effect on peri orbital wrinkles, will help to reduce pore size, improve skin tone and texture, and give a vibrant, healthier-looking skin. Combining blue and red helps remove the bacteria that cause the redness and inflammation of acne, helping to minimise the redness of acne lesions, promoting healing and thus giving clearer and healthier skin.
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS LAST?
Unlike other treatments, where the effects are short lived, OMNILUX™ Combination light Therapy stimulates natural cellular processes that rejuvenate and repair the skin. Thus, the results you see with OMNILUX™ continue to improve for up to 4 to 6 months after the light treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL NEED?
This depends upon your individual treatment regime. Your therapist will advise you on how many treatments may be suitable for your particular needs.
