What is Micro​dermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non surgical, safe and gentle procedure that deeply exfoliates and polishes the skin to stimulate new cell growth.

How does it work?

Using a gentle vacuum system and diamond tips, Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores, to reveal a younger, fresher complexion. It is a non invasive, pain free procedure which can be used to treat a number of skin care concerns.

What is Sonophoresis?

Microplus SonophoresisSonophoresis is a safe, non invasive treatment that uses ultrasonic technology, warmth and motion energy to significantly increase the depth and rate at which active ingredients can be absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin.

Sonophoresis has been shown to increase the permeability of the skin by up to 800%. Clinical trials have shown that the low frequency Sonophoresis, delivers better results than that of high frequency for the delivery of active ingredients.

How does it work?

The skin’s natural waterproofing barrier can often impede the absorption of active ingredients. The oil/water bi layers in the stratum corneum act as a defence barrier that serve to protect the lower layers of the dermis. Sonophoresis works by using ultrasonic technology to relax this natural barrier by opening up the intracellular pathways to allow the active ingredients to be absorbed.

Sonophoresis is a proven treatment method that can be incorporated as an ongoing part of everyone’s skin care regime. It is suitable for all skin types and delivers excellent results.

Not only is Sonophoresis highly effective, it is also a very soothing, relaxing and gentle treatment.

AHA/BHA exfoliation treatment

This treatment uses a AHA 20% blend of Glycolic and Lactic Acid buffered to pH 4.5 and BHA 1% Salicylic Acid along with Allantoin to aid healing and soothe the skin.

The AHA dissolves the natural glue bonding dead skin cells to the surface of your skin and assists with skin hydration. The BHA re textures the skin and has the ability to penetrate sebum filled follicles to dissolve dead skin within the pores. Effectively combats facial oil.

Suitable for teenagers through to mature skins.

Not suitable for people with an allergy to salicylic acid (asprin).

GP40 Peel

This treatment uses 40% Glycolic Acid with Melfade (to assist with skin lightening) and Cromist HYA (Hyaluronic Acid). pH buffered to between 2.5-3.0
