Custom Consultations for Results Driven Skin Care
Microdermabrasion is the latest scientific method using ultra-fine crystal particulates to exfoliate the skin and progressively abrade the skin’s surface. It is used for skin resurfacing and treating a range of skin abnormalities.
Diamond Microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin in just a few minutes! Diamond Microdermabrasion uses ultra-fine crystal particulates to exfoliate your skin gently and painlessly while a vacuum suction removes the crystals along with the dead skin cells. The result is brighter, smoother, fresher-looking skin with very little redness and no down time!
Diamond Microdermabrasion also promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis. It cleans the pores and stimulates collagen networking that can further improve skin texture. Diamond Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands. Diamond Microdermabrasion is generally indicated for: Wrinkles and lines on the face and hands, Age Spots, Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation, Acne Scars, Chickenpox Scars, Injury Scars, Enlarged Pores, and other blemishes.

Broad Spectrum Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure that uses a solution of various chemicals that are applied to the skin. Chemical peel solutions cause the top layer of skin to peel off in order to hopefully smooth the surface of the skin and provide other benefits like fading fine lines and scars. Most chemical peels have a gel-like consistency and are applied to the face, though sometimes peels are used on other parts of the body, such as the neck, hands or chest.
After being applied to the skin, chemical peels intentionally make the skin blister and then peel, although chemical peels are now considered safer than in years past and are less likely to leave skin feeling “raw.” The purpose of peels is to remove dull surface skin cells, which typically leads to an improvement in fine lines, acne, discoloration and more.
Something you might not realize about the benefits of a chemical peel? Recent advances in chemical peel procedures means that they help to deposit skin-healing ingredients into the skin, such as collagen, that can reduce lines and help improve tone. And after the top layer of your skin sheds following a peel, cells begin to increase collagen production and make more hyaluronic acid, both of which have anti-aging effects. According to the Derma Network, there are three main types of chemical peels, which include:
- Mild peels — Treats mostly mild skin problems, but also requires less recovery time. Results are usually less noticeable and dramatic, especially after just one treatment, but mild peels are usually appropriate for every skin color and pose little risk of hyperpigmentation.
- Medium-depth peels — Helps to remove facial lines, scars and birthmarks, but can cause side effects and take longer to heal from. Most people will see at least some results after one treatment, but multiple treatments are usually needed for full effects. Some dermatologists now recommend mild to medium peels that use multiple acids rather than one single acid at a higher strength, as multiple acids can lead to less irritation.
- Deep peels — Can be used to remove pre-cancerous growths, deep scars or wrinkles, serious acne and stubborn age spots. A deep chemical peel usually provides results with only one peel, however it can cause more severe side effects and be more costly.
Many different chemical formulas are used in various skin peels. Some common chemical peel ingredients include our aestheticians will select which is right for you:
- Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
- Lactic acid
- Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA)
- Vitamin C
- Salicylic acid
- Resorcinol exfoliant
What can you expect a chemical peel to feel like — for example, how long does it take to peel after a chemical peel?
Peeling and sometimes burning sensations usually begin shortly after you finish having a chemical peel, typically within about 20 minutes after the procedure. Discomfort from the peel should end within about three to seven days (sometimes up to 14 days if a deep peel was performed).
How often can you have a peel repeated? Mild peels can be repeated about every four weeks, but you’ll need longer to heal from medium or deep peels, about 6–12 months or longer on average.
What is a spa facial treatment?
A facial is a beautifying skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates dead skin cells, hydrates and moisturises the skin, and treats common skin concerns with a custom regime. Facial treatments are one of the most popular treatments for spa-goers. Facials are designed to boost the immediate appearance and overall health and longevity of the skin.
Nearly all facial treatments comprise deep cleansing and exfoliation stages, but the products and tools used depend on the type of facial – and the spa venue – selected. You can enjoy this indulgent treatment on its or as part of a pamper day or overnight spa break.
What are the benefits of facial treatments?
The pampering experience of a beautifying facial can provide multiple health and beauty benefits.
A regular facial is ideal for maintaining good skin health and can leave you with a radiant complexion. There are many types of spa facial to choose from. For example, some aid skin elasticity, preventing sagging, wrinkles and other tell-tell ageing signs, while others help to combat dry skin ailments or acne.
Even the lucky few of you with perfect skin will enjoy the indulgent pleasure of a facial, which utilises gentle massage techniques. Facial massages are not only relaxing; they also boost circulation and blood flow, helping the skin on your face to self-heal while re-energising your mind.
Facial extraction involves the process of clearing a clogged pore, either manually or through mechanical means. Clogged pores—clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells—result in blackheads, pustules, and pimples, all of which can be removed through facial extraction, either manually or mechanically.
Manual extraction involves using the fingers wrapped in gauze or cotton, while mechanical extraction involves using a special metal tool called a pore extractor. A pore extractor is a stainless steel implement with a loop on either end. The loop is placed around the clogged pore and the tool is pressed against the skin, thus placing pressure around the pore and encouraging the extraction of anything that may be in the pore.
