• How does skin tightening work?

    Laser Skin Tightening is designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and help with the regeneration of damaged skin cells. Skin tightening works on both Type 1 + Type 3 collagen which is a fibrous protein, found in the extra cellular matrix (Dermis).

    This treatment involves heat energy being delivered into the skin to penetrate deep down whilst protecting the upper visible layers and keeping them intact. It does this by deep thermal effect within the dermis causing collagen contracture and denaturation. This will then induce growth factors and stimulate new collagen synthesis which will then replace the old collagen with new fibres that are more compact and organized to give a less wrinkled appearance. Results are seen 3 months post treatments.

  • What is the difference between Dermal Rolling and Fractional RF (Max RF)?
    Dermal Rolling and Fractional RF are similar in the sense they both cause a controlled wound which then triggers a healing response where new collagen and elastin fibres are produced. Dermal rolling is an organic way of stimulating Collagen and Elastin production whereas Fractional RF uses a combination of dermal stamping and Radio Frequency. Radio Frequency uses deep thermal effects which result in contraction of the collagen fibres. This will give a tightening effect after the treatment.
  • How long will it take for me to see a result after my treatments?
    Each procedure is different – our less invasive treatments (such as microdermabrasion and superficial chemical peels) give more immediate results, and our more invasive treatments (such as Fractional RF (Max RF), Dermal rolling and deeper chemical peels) taken longer to see results (1-3 months). These treatments, however, have more lasting impacts than the less invasive treatments. Your therapist will advise on a treatment plan that will include a variety of treatments and our cosmedical-grade skin scapre products to address the skin concerns you have.
  • What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?
    Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. . Your therapist will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will minimise any impact to your skin.
  • Why do I need to use aftercare products?

    The importance of before and aftercare is to ensure you receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatments we offer. This includes our skin and laser treatments and can even be applied to cosmetic injections.

    For example our 5 a-day home care pack has everything you need for before and after your treatments. It will help to ensure you get fantastic results and your skin will heal and respond effectively following your treatments.

  • How do I know what treatment is right for me?
    Speak to one of our skin specialists for a complimentary skin consultation. We love educating people about their skin and will offer you a tailored treatment plan
  • Is Skin Needling painful?

    The treatment has minimal discomfort due to the application of a topical aesthetic prior to the treatment.

  • Will chemical peels literally make my skin peel off?
    This will depend on the type of peel used, the condition of the skin, medication taken and general health and well-being. Certain medications and health issues may be a contra indication to a chemical peel as they can increase adverse side effects. Redness, inflammation and mild to moderate peeling is usual for 1 – 5 days post peel. The stronger the peel, the more intense the redness, peeling and downtime.
  • How do I maximise the benefits of my skin treatments?

    Combine your treatments with LED light therapy and Skinstitut cosmedical skin care.

    LED works on a cellular level to fight active acne, rosacea and leaves your skin energised and youthful. The deep penetrating LED lights are designed to be soothing, target deep into skin cells to heighten their internal functions, photo-stimulate dermal blood flow and induce faster healing, reduce acne and treat rosacea.

    Cosmedicals are the newest and arguably the most effective category of skin products that can be purchased without prescription. Often described as an advanced cosmeceutical, Cosmedicals have the ability to target not only present and past skin damage, but provide the skin with some preventative capacity for the future. Based on a medically and clinically proven blend of AHA, Retinoids, Vitamin C, Peptides, Antioxidant and SPF technology, Cosmedicals are not only reliant on a potent percentage of active ingredients but utilise carefully formulated base formulas, encapsulation technology and penetration enhancers to deliver benefits as deep as possible into the skin.
