Dermaroller™ (1 hour 30 mins)

Few treatments can boast the success of the Derma Roller.  A specially designed surface fitted with minute surgical micro-needles is applied to your skin, stimulating the production of natural substances which refresh your skin. The method is known as skin needling, and has become extremely popular.


Conditions treated by the Derma Roller (aka Skin Needling)

The Derma Roller makes use of an amazing technique called skin needling during which the roller’s micro-needles stimulate the deeper layers of your skin encouraging the production of Collagen. The more Collagen in the skin, the more youthful the appearance and this method keeps the Collagen fibres active, meaning long lasting results. Skin Needling has been used by Dermatologist's since the early 1900's to repair damaged and scarred skin. An indirect effect of this caused impressive anti-ageing results, thus, filtering into the Beauty Industry. Skin needling is a proven method of skin smoothing and loved by every A-list celebrity.

 How does skin needling work? 

 The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.

Body Treatments

£85  -  £165
Radiofrequency Body Contouring (45 mins)

Radio Frequency is a safe and non-invasive way of transferring heat into the skin to stimulate repair of the Collagen fibres, a procedure originally used in 1892 by Medical Practitioner’s to repair skin tissue. Used with MPL in hair removal, we can increase the heat rather than the light energy for dark skin tones and lighter hair thus improving results for these types without compromising the skins’ pigmentation making it the most sophisticated method so far. As well as improving hair removal results, Radio Frequency alone can be used for Skin Tightening, improving the contour of the face around the jawline and neck, reduce puffy and lined eyes and tighten certain areas on the body such as the dreaded 'Bingo Wings'.

 What is the recovery time?

Following treatment, you may immediately resume all routine activities.  You may notice slight redness around the treatment area, this is normal and will usually disappear in a couple of hours.

 How many treatments are required to see the results?

£85  -  £165
Radiofrequency Skin Tightening (45 mins)
£85  -  £165
Decolletage Rejuvenation (45 mins)

With age and the effects of the environment the supporting components of our skin deplete and elastin and collagen fibres reduce. When MPl is delivered into the skin the energy stimulates collagen and elastin production by causing a controlled and minor trauma which results in firmer, smoother skin over a period of time. We cannot possibly stop the ageing process but these treatments are designed to keep stimulating Collagen fibres so that they are constantly being produced. Your Therapist will give you advice on the best Antioxidants to use at home so you can help your skin to keep its best on a daily basis. 

Does it really work?

Yes. We cannot fight against natural ageing but we can certainly stop premature ageing caused by the environment, smoking, and alcohol or City living. By having MPL treatments your skin will be encouraged to continually renew itself.

 How many treatments will I need?

An initial weekly course of six or eight will be necessary to stimulate the collagen. The results will be most noticeable after your first course and then maintenance treatments are recommended once a month after to maintain the results. This programme will ensure long term fabulously toned skin, whatever your age.

Acne Facial (30 mins)

Acne Vulgaris is produced when a there is a surge of male hormones, this can happen to both men and women. Although there is no cure for Acne it is efficiently controlled by the use of certain filters in the MPL which destroy P Acne Bacteria the prime symptom of acne in turn reducing the inflammation and restoring normal oil levels in the skin and hormones in the local area.

Why should I choose MPL for Acne?

MPL is an innovative and drug free method for treating Acne. MPl can actually decrease the over production of the sebaceous glands, the prime cause of inflammation and infection. A full comprehensive home care routine is advised alongside your treatments to further enhance your skins health and to ensure longer periods of clearer, smoother spot free skin.

 How is the procedure carried out?

Skin is cleansed and a layer of sterile gel applied to the whole surface. No hard pressure is applied during the treatment to ensure total comfort in the case of sore and infected lesions. After the MPL has treated the whole face your Therapist may perform extractions of blackheads and whiteheads. The skin is then cooled with cold compresses to close the pores and an appropriate after cream is applied. The skin will feel a little warm and may be red, this is usually temporary and if needed makeup can be applied within half an hour. Mineral makeup is ideal for Acne patients.

 

Can I have MPL for Acne whilst taking prescribed medication?

No. All oral and topical medications need to stop at least six months before you start MPL treatments unless otherwise authorised by your GP or specialist. This is because the skin would be compromised by internal and external treatments.

 Will this procedure cure my Acne?

No. There is no known cure for Acne but MPL can radically reduce the bact

Waxing and Hair Removal

IPL Hair Removal

MPL heats the hair shaft and surrounding appendages and destroys the connection between the bulb and the follicle preventing the regrowth of a new hair. As the hair bulb is the target for MPL, it is best to only shave or use hair removal cream in between treatments so that the root of the hair stays in place.

Am I suitable for MPL? 

Unlike traditional IPL, MPL can treat darker skin, (light and dark Asian and mixed race) tones and lighter hair (Dark Blonde) thanks to the inclusion of Radio Frequency. In some cases very dark skin tones may be referred to a Dermatologist for further advice.

 How many sessions will I need?

A Minimum of 6 sessions is required for every person to ensure at least 65-90% reduction. Some people may need more than one course. Single top up sessions can be once or twice a year after.

What is MPL (Multi Pulsed Light)?

 Multi Pulsed Light technology is a dynamic, tried and tested method for Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation. With the inclusion of Bi Polar Radio Frequency we can achieve results more superior than classic IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and Laser. It is less painful than traditional IPL and Laser as we can use a greater range of settings meaning that each client receives a bespoke treatment. MPL is highly effective, safe, non-invasive and gives unrivalled results.
