Plasma Fibroblast treatment is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure which has the ability to return the same results as traditional surgery. It is safe, performed in clinic and there are no needles. Topical Local Anaesthetic (Numbing Cream) is applied to the area prior to treatment and is completely tolerable. Only the excess skin is affected during the procedure. Patients are able to notice results immediately, however it takes approx 12 weeks for full effect to be visible. Between 1-4 treatments may be necessary to obtain your desired result. Fibroblast procedure should only be performed by a certified specialist with extensive skin knowledge.
How does Plasma work?
The Plamon hand-piece produces a tiny plasma flash, just like mini lightening. This creates tiny controlled micro wounds which minimise the skin in its immediate vicinity. This reduces the excess skin, tightening the treated area. A series of tiny brown spots are created and strategically placed to obtain the desired result for the excess skin. The skin around the spot tightens pulling the cells closer together. It’s the only non surgical treatment to successfully reduce the excess skin instantly, with no damage to surrounding tissue or deeper skin layers. This is an integral part of the success of this treatment.
Is a consultation required?
Yes. Anyone interested in a Plasma procedure is required to have face-to-face consultation. This is because not everyone is a suitable candidate for plasma. A thorough assessment will ensure we both agree it is the right treatment option for you. Multiple factors affect the ageing process and every person and treatment area is different, therefore needs to be determined individually. Consultations are 30-45 minutes, forms will also need to be completed. Skin preparation may also be required prior to test patch and treatment this includes SPF daily and a tyrosinase inhibitor (Vit C).
SKIN RENEWAL PEEL
What is the Skin Renewal Peel?
The System consists of a peeling formulation that has been carefully researched and developed. It is based on Resorcinol compounded in special non-penetrating base ingredients. Layers of dead skin cells are exfoliated in a safe and controlled way and are replaced with skin that is more supple, elastic and firmer, with a smoother texture and stable moisture balance. Who should consider the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peeling Treatment? Everyone. There is no skin that is not greatly improved after the Skin Renewal Peeling Treatment. It is especially beneficial for:
Superficial facial lining, fine wrinkles around the eyes,wrinkles, blemishes and superficial scarring.
Dryness, sensitivity or oiliness.
Pimples, blackheads, whiteheads (milia) and coarse skin.
Pigmentation marks and superficial freckles.
Sun damage and poor quality skin.
How does the Skin Renewal Peeling System differ from other peels?
The special characteristics of the exfoliation technique are that no destruction of living cells is involved. Only dead cell layers are detached from the skin which remains absolutely intact. Resorcinol is one of the very few substances which have this property. Many other peelings in high concentration can destroy the cells in the deeper layers of the epidermis, which can damage the delicate skin tissues. The Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peelings are performed lightly and progressively to produce much better cosmetic results than more aggressive peels.
Is a consultation required?
Yes. Anyone interested in a Skin Renewal Peel is required to have face-to-face consultation. A thorough assessment will ensure we both agree it is the right treatment option for you. Consultations are 30-45 minutes, forms will also need to be completed. Skin preparation may also be required prior to test patch and treatment this includes SPF daily and a tyrosinase inhibitor (Vit C).
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) TREATMENTS
What is IPL?
IPL or intense pulsed light skin rejuvenation is a light based aesthetic treatment that actively targets and reduces skin irregularities to provide a clearer, younger and healthier complexion.
What does IPL do?
IPL works by applying rapid light pulses at variable rate wavelengths to the treatment area. The light is absorbed by the targeted chromophores (such as water in the skin). This light is then converted into heat energy, which destroys the targeted area through controlled thermal damage, while ensuring surrounding healthy tissue remains untouched.
Is a consultation required?
Anyone interested in IPL treatments are required to have a consultation and test patch prior to first treatment. Consultations are 30-45 minutes, forms will also need to be completed. Test Patching is compulsory prior to first treatment to ensure efficacy and patient safety. Skin preparation may also be required prior to test patch and treatment this includes SPF daily and a tyrosinase inhibitor (Vit C).
IPL pigmentation correction effectively fades and removes age spots, sunspots and discolouration to greatly improve overall skin tone, texture and radiance. 2-3 treatments may be required depending on the severity of sun damage.
Facial spider veins, broken capillaries, red spots and rosacea can all be reduced and removed to offer a more even and uniform complexion. 1-6 treatments may be required depending on the level of vascularity we are treating.
Spider veins on areas other than the face may require the nd:YAG laser. This destroys the vein without damaging the surrounding skin, in some instances they may disappear immediately, but generally take 2-3 treatments depending on the area. Results can take up to 6 weeks and are scheduled 6 weeks apart.
This is specifically targeting the P.Acnes bacteria to oxygenate the environment. This will destroy the bacteria and aid in reducing future breakouts. This treatment is only for active pustules/acne. It will not work for congestion/blackheads.

COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (DermapenMD - SKIN NEEDLING)
Better known as skin needling, collagen induction therapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to support the skins regeneration of collagen through a natural healing process. Ultra-fine, medical grade, stainless steel needles are passed across the skin creating multiple surface skin channels. The tiny skin channels (wounds) allow for increased product penetration as well as activating the skins natural healing response. The untreated skin allows for faster healing and makes it more suitable for patients of darker skin types. This treatment is designed to support skin regeneration to help improve fine lines, mild textural irregularities, pigmentation and to improve general skin rejuvenation. Treatment can also support the healing of acne scarring and improve the appearance of stretch marks and surgical scarring.
These treatments can be performed 2-8 weekly and depending on the condition being treated 3-6 treatments may be required. Skin consultation and prep may be required prior to treatment.
PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION
Laser, IPL & SHR are effective ways to greatly reduce hair on all parts of the body. Due to the hair growth cycle approx. 6-10 treatments will be necessary for optimum results. Light Blonde, Grey, Silver, White and Light Red hair do not respond well due to the lack of melanin. Consultation and test patch required prior to first treatment to ensure efficacy and patient safety.
IPL HAIR REDUCTION
The IPL device emits light at specific wavelengths which are absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle (pigment gives hair its colour). The machine is then pulsed for only a fraction of a second and the duration of each pulse is just long enough to disrupt the hair follicle. When the pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the IPL light, energy is converted into heat, resulting in thermal damage to the hair follicle. This thermal damage causes delayed regrowth of the hair or complete permanent destruction of the hair follicle.
SHR HAIR REDUCTION
SHR technology is much like traditional IPL treatment but instead of delivering individual high-intensity shots to the treatment area, SHR scans the treatment zone—gradually heating the skin with repetitive lowfluence pulses until the hair follicle is destroyed, resulting in stunted hair regrowth or complete elimination of the hair follicle.
HAIR REDUCTION FOR LIGHTER HAIR
Introducing permanent hair reduction for Blonde, White, Red, Grey and Silver hair. Currently our Lasers and IPL machines can’t see your lighter hair due to the lack of melanin. However we are able to utilise a different technique which involves waxing the area and then using the IPL on a vascular setting.
