The muscles of the face allow us to express a range of emotions such as happiness, sadness and anger. Over time, the repeated use of facial muscles cause lines and wrinkles to occur, particularly around the frown area, and may even make you look angry or worried, even when you are not. Over time, these lines can deepen. Anti-wrinkle injections are a naturally occurring protein extract and are generally well tolerated in the minute levels administered for cosmetic use. They have been approved for use for over 20 years globally. Anti-wrinkle injections provide a highly effective method of smoothing the skin, and are one of the most widely performed cosmetic treatments today. They work by blocking signals between nerves and muscles, preventing muscles from contracting and forming lines on the skin’s surface. The result is fast, effective and impressive control of frown lines, wrinkles and fine lines. Anti-wrinkle injections are not a permanent solution, and further treatments are required periodically to maintain the effect.
Dermal fillers are injectable gels that restore volume to areas of the face. Many contain a substance that replicates the actions of a naturally occurring sugar molecule, attracting and holding water to assist with skin hydration. The products can be placed below the skin’s surface to provide more youthful contours and smoother skin. Fillers can ‘plump up’ small areas such as the lips and brows and ‘re-volumise’ larger areas like the cheeks and jawline. Sometimes they’re used in conjunction with anti-wrinkle injections, which relax facial muscles, or with other treatments that restore skin tone, to rejuvenate the whole face.
Chin Fat Treatment
Submental fullness (also known as the double chin) can be caused by aging, genetics and weight changes. There is now a treatment available that assists to permanently remove the unwanted fat in this region that has been clinically proven.
Used to treat a variety of concerns, such as skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, lipolysis & cellulite treatment – commonly used alongside other treatments like dermal fillers & anti-wrinkle injections to enhance results.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP has a long history of being used in orthopaedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery, and now its benefits are being applied to dermatology and
cosmetology (platelet-rich plasma or PRP) contains growth factors which stimulate skin regeneration. Platelets are an important component in our blood and are necessary for normal clotting. When platelets are activated they release several proteins as well as growth factors which release stem cells, increasing collagen formation, skin-tightening and overall rejuvenation. Due to all these benefits, this treatment is also referred to ‘Facial Stem Cell Regeneration’ therapy.
Clinically known as Hyperhidrosis – is a condition of excessive sweating. This treatment will suppress the sweat glands, leaving you sweat free for
6-9 months. Prior to treatment, we will conduct an iodine test to identify the severity of your condition.
Facials can be customised to treat a variety of different skin concerns. Prior to any skin treatment, one of our skin therapists will sit down for a private consultation with you. This enables us to find out what problems or concerns you may have with your skin, and allows us to create a treatment program designed to fulfil your needs and help you to achieve the results you are looking for.
We offer a variety of different Facial treatments which will target your individual concerns, no matter how simple or complex they are. We can also advise you how best to care for your skin at home, in between treatments.
LED Light Therapy
Uses specific colours of light to stimulate cellular functions for skin rejuvenation and healing. LEDs are light emitting diodes which produce light of certain wavelengths (colours). Unlike IPL or laser, LEDs do not produce heat to achieve their results. Instead they create an effect known as bio-modulation. Bio-modulation can cause stimulation or inhibition of various different cellular functions, which can create anti-inflammatory effects, enhance tissue healing and regeneration, and even suppress bacterial activity in acne-prone skin.
Peels are acidic chemicals used to improve the appearance and functions of the skin. We use a range of different peels for different skin concerns. Peels can improve skin conditions such as acne, scarring, enlarged pores and textural imperfections, pigmentation, sun-damage and premature aging of the skin.
Peels create changes in the structure of not only the skin surface, but the deeper architecture of the skin as well, resulting in a clearer, smoother and more refined skin appearance. Depending on your skin condition or concerns, you may require anywhere from 2-6 peels for best results. Our expert skin therapists will consult with you and guide you through the treatment options.
Deeply cleanses, exfoliates, reduces imperfections and textural concerns such as pigmentation, acne scarring, enlarged pores, congestion and breakouts.
Microdermabrasion uses diamond-crusted tips which are drawn over the skin under vacuum pressure to produce a deep exfoliation of the skin. Dead skin cells, excess sebum and other impurities are vacuumed off the skin, and the skin is refreshed and renewed with new skin cells from the deeper layers. Microdermabrasion can improve many skin conditions such as acne, congestion, ingrown hairs, scarring, superficial pigmentation, enlarged pores and textural imperfections and skins with aging concerns. Best results are usually achieved with a course of treatments. Our expert skin therapists can advise you further.
Skin Needling is one of the latest and most effective treatments for scarring, skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing. We use hygienic single-use cartridges in our automated needling pen which causes a series of tiny, controlled pinpricks into precise areas of the skin. The skin is stimulated to heal and renew itself by producing more of its own collagen tissue in the deeper layers. This new collagen fills up atrophic areas of the skin and creates a smoother, more refined surface and a healthier, more plump texture in the deeper layers of the skin.
Acne is a disorder of the skin which causes blockages (blackheads and whiteheads) and inflamed lesions (pimples) to develop. Acne stems from excess sebum (oil) production, hyperkeratinisation (excess dead skin cell production) and bacterial activity. These factors are often hereditary in nature, but can be exacerbated by poor skin care, hygiene or other lifestyle factors. Our acne treatments all work by targeting these underlying factors and aiming to correct and restore normal functions of the skin. Specially selected products and treatments are used to control oil production, reduce the build-up of excess dead skin cells, and reduce bacterial activity in the skin to reduce inflammation and breakouts.
- Oxygen Blast (Deep cleanse Facial with exfoliation, extractions, antibacterial Oxygen treatment)
This treatment uses oil-clearing and anti-bacterial products to deep cleanse excess oil and dead skin cells from the skin, expertly-performed extraction of blockages (blackheads and whiteheads) and Oxygen to suppress bacterial activity and stimulate healing of existing skin lesions.
- Salicylic Acid Peel
Salicylic Acid is a BHA – well known for its ability to penetrate into the oily environment of acne-prone pores to dissolve the blockages of dead skin and oil that cause blemishes. A course of treatments gives best results.
- Blue Light Therapy – IPL/LED treatment for Acne.
We use a specific wavelength of blue light to target bacterial activity in breakout-prone skin, reduce inflammation and stimulate healing. A course of treatments is required for best results.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation
Our Skin Rejuvenation treatments are performed with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL uses specific wavelengths of light to target different areas of the skin which cause discoloration to become visible over time (redness caused by blood vessels and brown pigmentation caused by irregular pigment production). These targets absorb the light, heat up and gradually break down to reduce or remove the discolorations. At the same time, the skin absorbs a little of the heat throughout its deeper layers, and this stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin. This produces a rejuvenating effect, plumping and firming the skin and restoring a more youthful appearance. A course of treatments is usually required for best results. Our expert IPL operators follow strict treatment protocols to ensure you receive the safest and most effective treatment possible.
- Full Face Rejuvenation (treats pigmentation, redness and signs of ageing)

IPL Permanent Hair Reduction
We use IPL for our Permanent Hair Reduction treatments.
Specific wavelengths of light are used to target the hair follicles which produce unwanted hair. The light is absorbed by the hair within the follicle, which heats up and destroys the growth centre of the follicle. The treated hairs shed within a few weeks of treatment, and with a course of subsequent treatments, growth is reduced or may even be completely eliminated.
Our IPL operators are highly trained and experienced, and we employ many administrative and operational controls to ensure you receive the safest and most effective treatment every time.
