While spa facials are common, medical facials differ in several ways. If you're starting to notice signs of aging, a medical facial will give you better results thanks to the equipment and active ingredients used.
Whether you're looking to slow the aging process or treat acne scarring, medical facials are an affordable and effective option to meet your skin care goals.View our pricelist
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin Rejuvenation Therapy (nicknamed by the media Vampire Facelift) utilises the potential of your own body to improve the overall texture and tone of your skin, naturally. It reduces wrinkles and blemishes such as acne scars and may be used as part of your health and beauty regimes to improve the overall condition of the skin, improving tone and texture.
PRP Therapy involves blood being taken from the patients body (in the same way as in a blood test) then put in a machine that separates the blood cells, serum and platelets. The platelet rich plasma is then harvested and injected directly back into the face or the area of the body in need of rejuvenation.
Platelets release growth factors that help the body repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. As well as improving the skin tone the treatment also promotes healthy skin growth and collagen production. Skin appears plumper and more vibrant.
Anyone who prefers a more natural approach to anti-ageing treatments, PRP Therapy is a completely safe and natural treatment and is highly effective at improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and dull, worn-out looking skin. PRP can be used to rejuvenate the face, neck, décolleté, backs of hands and other body areas.
Unlike alpha-hydroxy peels or other superficial procedures, the Obagi Blue Peel allows your nurse practitioner to control the depth of the peel and the number of coats applied to tailor the process to your own skin specific needs. Blemishes, acne scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage are some reasons to get the Obagi Blue Peel, which will dramatically improve your complexion. It can be performed on your face, neck, chest, legs, arms and hands.
The Obagi Blue Peel uses Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) as the active ingredient mixed with the patented Blue Base from Obagi. The Obagi Blue Peel is applied based on the level of damage and the desired level of improvement.
To keep your skin's new healthy glow and youthful appearance you can be prescribed the Obagi Nu-Derm System to work safely and effectively in conjunction with the Obagi Blue Peel.
Depending on the strength and depth of treatment, following the procedure, you will experience light swelling. Within 2-3 days, your skin will begin to peel. This peeling continues over the next few days. By 7-10 days you skin should be healed.
Once your skin has completely recovered and has finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin's appearance should continue to improve for the next 4-6 weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier and more youthful looking.
