Skin Treatments

Types of Treatment

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical  skin solution to the skin to remove dead skin cells, and stimulate the regeneration of new skin cells, to give you smoother and youthful-looking skin.

In general, lighter peels are used for exfoliation, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and mild discolouration, while stronger peels are used to improve deeper wrinkles and extensive sun damage and discolouration.

Chemical peels can be done in conjunction with our Photo Rejuvenation Laser treatment to achieve optimum results. However, a thorough evaluation is required before an appropriate chemical peel program can be recommended.

FAQ

How many sessions do I need?
The frequency of the treatments depends on the different skin conditions as well as the strength of the peels.

Lighter peels can be once every month, to once every few months to maintain results with a shorter downtime. Stronger peels are done less frequently, as they require a longer downtime.

Is there any downtime?
Recovery time after a chemical peel depends on the strength of the peel used. Chemical peels usually cause redness, and skin peeling can be expected 3 days after the procedure, that can last up to a week. As with all chemical peels, proper skincare after the procedure is important to prevent infections, speed up the healing time, and for lasting results. Avoiding direct sun exposure is also crucial to prevent colour changes to the treated area.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a non-invasive and non-ablative technological device that uses an intense, pulsed, broadband light. It improves the appearance of skin blemishes, and can also be used to remove excessive/unwanted hair.

FAQ

What does the treatment involve? 
In IPL skin rejuvenation, the device emits a range of light waves that are adjusted to target either hemoglobin (red blood cells in blood vessels) or melanin (the pigment in age spots and freckles). Once the light beam passes through the skin, it is absorbed by either hemoglobin or melanin, and results in the breakdown of the blood vessel wall or fragmentation of melanin pigments. These tiny cells and pigments are then absorbed by the body, making them less visible.

IPL hair removal works by using a flash lamp through the matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration for an optimal result on target tissue, with minimal effect on the surrounding skin. Light energy is produced, which is then absorbed into the dark pigment of the hair, and destroyed by heat, resulting in the permanent destruction of the hair root.

How many sessions do I need?
IPL treatments are usually a series of 3 – 5 sessions, performed at intervals of 4 weeks. Spreading the treatments over this period enables a gradual improvement for skin rejuvenation, and achieves effective removal of excessive/unwanted hair.

Is there any downtime?
The intense light emitted from the device may cause slight swelling and redness at the treated area, especially when the skin in the area is very thin. However, this swelling and redness usually subsides after a few hours. Avoiding direct sun exposure is also crucial to prevent colour changes to the treated area.

FAQ

What does the treatment involve?
Medical Therapist Microdermabrasion is a simple, non-invasive procedure that helps to clear clogged pores, reduce pigmentation due to acne outbreaks and achieve a smooth textured skin post-procedure. 

How many sessions do I need?
A personal consultation with the doctor is required to determine the number and frequency of the treatments. Treatments are usually performed once a month to once in two months.

Is there any downtime?
This treatment has minimal or no downtime – you can go about your daily activities right after the session. Some patients may experience pink skin that feels tight and dry, but this will usually subside after 24 hours. Moisturizers and sunscreen can be used to make the skin feel more comfortable. Direct sun exposure should be avoided for a few days after treatment.
