Photofacial

Light therapy to even out skin tone.

Photofacials safely enhance skin appearance by reducing brown pigment, age spots or freckles, improving prominent blood vessels, and reducing redness from rosacea and flushing. The treatments also produce a rejuvenating effect to the skin by activating collagen synthesis.
Renew MediSpa employs Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to deliver precisely emitted flashes of light and heat to target colours in the skin. In the instance of dilated vessels from sun damage or rosacea, the delivered heat energy coagulates the vessel with the aim to relieve facial redness. The same principle applies to brown spots to which the heat energy is directed. Once treated, these pigmented lesions darken and are pushed to the skin’s surface to be shed away, revealing a more uniform skin tone. Photofacials fade age spots and relieve a blotchy complexion with little to no downtime. An initial series of 3 treatments will give good results for the face, neck, decollete, or hands.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

A non-invasive laser for beautifully rejuvenated skin.

The advent of fractional laser resurfacing revolutionized the field of medical aesthetics by providing considerable skin improvements without the downtime and recovery traditionally associated with laser therapy. The 1540 laser by Palomar sends thousands of narrow channels of laser energy deep into the skin, bypassing the surface and stimulating skin regeneration. By treating a fraction of the skin at a time, treatments are more comfortable and healing times are shorter. Common skin concerns such as enlarged pores, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities (such as age spots and melasma) and rough skin texture can be addressed. A series of 3 treatments is ideal. Surgical scars and stretch marks can also be reduced and softened by as much as 50% with 5 to 7 treatments. After treatment, clients can anticipate three to four days of facial redness followed by skin flaking. Within the span of a week, a more even, smooth and radiant complexion is revealed.

Microdermabrasion

We utilize a crystal free medical grade machine to gently but thoroughly buff away the top layer of dead skin cells exposing fresh, younger skin while at the same time stimulating the production of collagen. Light or deep microdermabrasion may be performed depending on the condition of the skin. Microdermabrasion is often used as a pre-treatment for chemical peels or photodynamic treatments to enhance the results of those treatments and can be used on almost any area of the body. Microdermabrasion can help in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, coarse-textured skin with large pores, stretch marks, acne scarring, and pigmented lesions. Clients with rosacea or very sensitive skin should not undergo microdermabrasion.

Skin Peels

“The Perfect Peel,” a combination of trichloracetic acid (TCA), phenol, salicylic acids, vitamin C and retinol. It promises to reverse acne, melasma, and hyperpigmentation; reverse signs of ageing, age spots and sun damage; erase acne scarring and blemishes; lighten and brighten skin; reduce pore size and soften fine lines and wrinkles, stimulating collagen production. It is especially beneficial if you have oily/combination/acne prone skin.

The Miami Peel® S-30 is a proven superficial peel formulation, containing Salicylic Acid, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Green Tea Extract and other Antioxidants. It effectively exfoliates and removes dead skin cells, helps stimulate the renewal of the skin, diminishes the appearance of pores and helps lighten and even the skin tone. The Miami Peel® S-30 formula is for all those who want to achieve a more youthful and even skin tone and is very beneficial as part of a Physician supervised program to improve the appearance of acne/oily skin, photo-ageing, sun damage and pigment discolouration of any kind.

BLU U for Acne

Blu U light treatments are a safe, painless way to kill the acne bacterium without the need for antibiotics. This non-invasive therapy greatly improves the appearance of the skin in 3 to 4 weeks with once or twice weekly sessions. The face, back or chest can be treated.
