Deep Cleaning / Exfoliation / Skin Resurfacing

We offer a complete range of deep cleaning, exfoliation and skin resurfacing procedures to adapt to every skin type and requirements.

We suggest a professional deep exfoliation prior to most procedures at the clinic as well as once every season.

All of our professional exfoliation procedures offer un-paralleled results for skin tone and texture, fine lines, large pores, hyper-pigmentation (sun damage), acne & acne scarring.

Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells of the skin’s outermost surface, and has been used and evolved for many years to help maintain skin tone, texture and general functioning.  Exfoliation can be achieved through mechanical or chemical means. Not all skin types are suitable for all forms of exfoliation.  Sensitive skins or those suffering from acne or rosacea for example benefit more from ultrasound or diamond abrasion as less irritation develops.

Mechanical

This process involves physically scraping, sandblasting or scrubbing the skin to loosen and remove dead cells.. Mechanical exfoliation procedures available at the clinic include Microdermabrasion, Diamond-abrasion and Ultrasound peeling and scrubbing.

Chemical

Chemical exfoliation may involve the use of products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or enzymes that act to loosen the glue-like substance that holds the cells together, allowing them to ease away.  The clinic stocks an array of these chemical & enzyme compounds including Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic, Malic and Citric as well as natural enzymes including pineapple, papaya enzymes.

Diamondabrasion

Equipment: Edge Systems™ Corporation; known as the market leader of medical aesthetic abrasion systems.

Diamond Dermabrasion offers several advantages over its precursor Microdermabrasion including an assortment of variable diamond studded grit sizes ensuing greater precision and predictable results.  Also, a lower vacuum suction allows for little to no bruising, redness or irritation as well as less client discomfort.

Also, the absence of aluminum oxide crystals commonly used with it’s precursor Microdermabrasion for several reasons makes this method a healthier option.

Microdermabrasion

Equipment: Edge Systems™ Corporation; known as the market leader of medical aesthetic abrasion systems.

A mechanical method of deep exfoliation utilizing aluminum crystals that are blown onto the Skin and vacuumed back up taking with them loosened Skin.  This treatment is suitable for thicker or resilient Skin and causes minor to moderate irritation.

Ultrasound Peeling

Equipment: Edge Systems™ Corporation; known as the market leader of medical aesthetic abrasion systems.

The gentlest method of professional exfoliation and deep skin cleaning.  Ultrasound utilizes sound waves to vibrate unnecessary skin as well as oil and debris from within the pores.  This process is done with a water based gel and an ultrasound “scrubber” making it the preferred choice among those with Sensitive Skin, Acne or Rosacea as it causes little to no redness, irritation or break-outs.

Natural Enzyme & Chemical Peeling

Peeling is an automatic method of exfoliation in which certain acids or enzymes are applied to the Skin causing a chemical reaction allowing the skin to shed over the following days.  Peeling is adaptable to all Skin types and conditions as our clinic offers a complete range of acids offering gentle to strong options. Including TCA, Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic and natural Enzymes all ranging in strengths from 5% to 70%.
