New generation acid peels involve the use of gentle fruit acids. These have a mild exfoliating action removing dead skin cells and debris from the surface of the skin.
The acid is chosen based on skin type and condition, and the effect required. After the treatment, the acid is completely neutralised and a soothing mask is applied for a few minutes to calm the skin. These chemical peels require no down time with only a mild peeling effect, if any at all.
Acid peels have come a long way, they leave your skin clean and free of debris, with a luminous, healthy glow. Serums are absorbed better and make-up application is smoother. Having a chemical peel is an ideal precursor to other treatments helping to make them even more effective.
- Glycolic acid derived from sugar cane, rejuvenating helping with fine lines, ideal for light skin tones
- Lactic acid derived from milk, a mild acid for dry sensitive skins, and pigmentation
- Salicylic acid derived from the bark of the sweet birch, good for oily congested skin
- Mandelic acid derived from sweet almonds, a gentle acid, good for aged and pigmented skin ideal for darker skin tones
Cryo-face masks are made from algae extract with added active ingredients. Once applied to the skin, they set into a rubberised mask which is left on for 15 minutes before being peeled off. The mask reduces the temperature of the skin by 5-8 degrees helping to give the skin a temporary lift, reduce puffiness around the eyes and improve moisture content.
Collagen face masks improve skin tone and structure and promote healing, as well as replenishing lost collagen caused by pollution and the environment.
This is a relaxing facial treatment using a customised face mask to boost the condition of your skin and give it a lift.

The Ultra Facial
Ultrasound at different frequencies can penetrate the skin to different depths. The waves cause vibrations and a very gentle heat helping to melt away thin layers of fat deposited around the jaw line and cheeks, helping to reshape and contour the face.
Very gentle wavelengths stimulate cell metabolism and accelerate collagen fibre production, as well as aiding product penetration.
Ultrasound treatments are painless, involve no incisions and no down time. The face is reshaped and lifted, the skin remains firm and with the added benefit of combining the treatment with serums to help skin tone.
Endermologie Liftmassage Treatments
Gentle micro-pulsations are delivered to the face, neck or decollete, this mechanical stimulation on the surface of the skin stimulates collagen production and restores firmness and plumpness, it also boosts the skin's elastic memory for long term results. A course of ten treatments, twice weekly is recommended.
As skin ages, it becomes thinner and less elastic. This thinning, causes lines and wrinkles to appear and also leads to a sagging jaw-line. Clinical studies show that mechanically stimulating the fibroblasts found in the dermis of the skin, increases their activity and boosts collagen and elastin production, leading to plumper, firmer skin.

Photo Rejuvenation Facials
We all know that too much UV from the sun can cause skin damage, but we rarely stop to consider that certain wavelengths of light can actually be good for us. We make vitamin D using sunlight and other wavelengths help stimulate cell rejuvenation and also lift our spirits.
A range of seven therapeutic wavelengths are available to use, either alone or in combination, to help treat different skin conditions. By combining the therapeutic light with a low microcurrent you can boost the absorption of any serums or creams used in your chosen photo-facial.
A gentle facial with real stimulating properties for the skin. The facial involves a fruit enzyme cleanse to remove dirt and debris, the addition of a serum or cream and the application of light.
- Red Light stimulating and rejuvenating
- Blue Light calming and anti-bacterial
- Green Light balancing and pore minimising
- Purple Light repairing and drains puffiness
- Yellow Light brightening and breaks down pigmentation
- Cyan Light calming and soothing for sunburn
- White Light anti-ageing aids nutrient absorption
IPL skin rejuvenation
IPL ( Intense Pulsed Light ) treatments are used to treat strong sun damage and age spots by targeting excess melanin found in the skin and drawing the pigment to the surface where is forms a thin crust and falls away, leaving a clear blemish free skin.
Thread veins found around the nose and cheeks and rosacea can also be treated. The haemoglobin found in the damaged veins is targeted, the veins collapse and are broken down by the body, leaving clear skin and reducing redness.
Acne can be treated by targeting the bacteria causing the infection. Once the bacteria is destroyed the spots will disappear.
Treatments are quick and easy. For skin rejuvenation, one treatment monthly for a total of four months is required. For Acne, one treatment weekly is required for six weeks to kill the bacteria.
Flash-White Teeth Whitening
One of the most immediate anti-ageing treatments you can have is teeth whitening. A bright smile can take years off you and with our patented gel and blue light, cold laser technology, it takes only one hour to achieve.
FlashWhite, is a professional teeth whitening system that uses oxygen and the latest generation patented photo- activated ingredients. FlashWhite affords truly stunning results for the most common extrinsic stains, such as those caused by tobacco, tea, coffee, wine, ketchup and curries.
After the initial consultation and preparation, the treatment involves only two 15 minute cycles using the patented gel. The cold laser minimises the chance of sensitivity. The treatment only needs to be done once or twice a year to maintain a bright healthy smile.
Dermal roller mesotherapy
Dermal rollers work on the principle that the tiny puncture wounds caused during the treatment stimulate cell and collagen production in the healing process, helping plump up the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. A dermal roller can have needles from 0.2 - 3mm long. We use short needle dermal rollers, from 0.2 to 0.75mm, this eliminates the need for topical anaesthetic and causes no bleeding so the effects can be achieved with no down time. We combine the dermal roller treatment with a multivitamin serum to provide a highly effective mesotherapy treatment.
The dermal roller treatment helps with skin rejuvenation, improves fine lines and wrinkles and reduces pigmentation and acne scarring. The treatment works deep into the middle layer of the skin and aids the penetration of vitamins and cosmeceuticals which can be used in combination with the treatment to achieve great results. Only a series of three treatments are needed to see a great improvement in the skin condition.
Microcurrent non-surgical face lift
The microcurrent non-surgical face lift uses a low level of electricity which mirrors the body's own natural electrical impulses. The current works on the facial muscles, causing tiny contractions, lifting and toning sagging muscles. With regular treatments the muscles receive a stimulating work-out, resulting in firmed and toned facial contours.
As our muscles lose tone and begin to sag, so do our facial features. This treatment helps lift cheek, brow and jaw muscles and helps maintain a youthful appearance. A course of 6 treatments, twice weekly is recommended initially, then a single monthly session is needed to maintain the result.
Radio Frequency skin tightening
Radio-frequency ( RF ) works using the principles of diathermy ( deep heating ). RF uses very short wavelengths to penetrate the skin without affecting the nerves or muscles. The increase in temperature caused by the vibration of the RF waves is around 4-5 degrees centigrade. This temperature rise improves blood flow, cell metabolism and lymph circulation, boosting oxygen and nutrient uptake. The heat tightens the elastin fibres which connect the skin to the muscle and promotes collagen production.
RF treatments can be used on facial areas where the tone and tightness of the skin needs to be improved. The treatment is warm without being uncomfortable and can be carried out at weekly intervals until the required results are achieved.
Diamond microdermabrasion uses diamond heads and a gentle vacuum suction to gently remove excess dirt and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The treatment works over the whole face without the use of crystals or fine sand to avoid blocking the pores.
Microdermabrasion gently resurfaces the skin, helping diminish fine lines and scars and also reduce pigmentation. The treatment is ideal for skin which has a tendency to clog and suffers from congestion. It is a great starting point for then allowing serums and creams to be better absorbed.
