*NEW!* Plasma IQ
The PlasmaIQ pen helps to reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles and crows feet. The pen creates a lifting and tightening effect which can be beneficial in the eye area, where our skin is more sensitive and therefore prone to aging quicker than other parts of our bodies. Not only can PlamaIQ help reduce the severity of wrinkles and lift sagging skin, dramatically changing the appearance.
The results of this non-invasive, non-surgical technique will continue to tighten for up to 12 weeks, with 1-3 sessions every 6 weeks to see full results in the treatment area.
This procedure works on the principle of ionizing gas in the air to produce small plasma arc dots. When these touch the surface of the skin, the heat spreads, which subsequently gets transferred to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and then to the papillary layer containing fibroblast cells. The eventual result is contraction and tightening of the skin. This procedure is not painful, but a numbing cream is applied to help alleviate any discomfort which could arise. There is little downtime, the most noticeable side effect being the "carbon crusts" that will form after treatment which fall off within a week post treatment.
A hooded eye treatment is $600
An under eye treatment is $600.
Botox and Dysport are neurotoxins which control nerve impulses, restricting the movement and ability to contract the facial muscles. This causes the muscle to relax and the skin to smooth out, causing wrinkles to reduce their appearance, and in many cases, disappear completely.
A botox treatment will last 3-5 months and we charge $10/unit. The amount of Botox recommended for your treatment will be decided during your consultation. The image on the left shows on average how many units are required for each treatment area.
Please note that the final amount required will be decided during the consultation.
Dermal Filler Treatment
As we age we lose collagen, elastin and volume in our skin. Dermal fillers revitalize and enhance your natural facial features by restoring the lost volume, shape, and definition, as well as softening wrinkles, creases, facial folds, and fine lines.
