  • Are 2-3 week touch-ups safe & effective?
    A 2 to 3 week touch-up is neither safe nor effective. Some laser hair removal centers may offer a complementary touch-up at the 2 weeks marker, but this is not a safe practice. We space each laser hair removal treatment approximately 4 to 8 weeks apart depending on individual's hair density, hair growth cycle as well as the factors of hair growth. Laser hair removal done too soon is not only ineffective, it can also put the skin at risk for burning or scarring.

  • What Exactly Is a Corrector Peel facial?
    In essence, our corrector Peel Facial removing dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new ones. “There are three types of chemical peels: superficial ones that work on the surface and target the outer, dead layer of skin cells and medium or deep peels that go further into the epidermis for deeper resurfacing action,” Regardless of depth, they all work in the same way—breaking down the “glue” that binds our skin dead cells together. This allows the unnecessary upper layers to be whisked away, leaving the new-before-seen skin to shine through.
  • The Benefits
    Superficial chemical peels can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, even skin tone, improve pigmentation and treat acne while deeper peels can also stimulate collagen production. The normal rate of skin cell turnover is between 21 and 28 days, and this rate tends to slow down dramatically in our late 20s. Superficial Corrector Peels help to increase this cellular turnover in the form of exfoliation and to stimulate healthy cell growth.
  • Is My Skin a Fit For Peeling?
    The only people who shouldn’t touch peels with a glycolic or lactic acid are those who have allergies to the ingredients included or have inflamed and active skin diseases — everyone else can benefit from a good cleanse and polish.
  • Downtime and Aftercare
    Again, it depends on the type of peel. We have it’s light and superficial that you might find your skin looks perfectly fine post-treatment. A medium peel might take a week to heal while a deeper peel could take up to a 2 weeks for downtime. Post-treatment mask sheet that include excellent source of collagen and vitamin c & E masks are being developed to soothe soreness, flood skin with moisture and enhance the healing process after treatment. They can also help reduce inflammation and prevent pigmentation.
  • How does IPL Photofacial work and is it safe?
    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is light therapy that involves shining highly concentrated and intense beams of light intermittently on the surface of the skin. The pulses of light target pigment and vascular irregularities, smoothing out the skin’s tone and texture. IPL therapy helps to reduce the effects of aging, leaving clients with younger, clearer, and healthier-looking skin. When performed correctly by a certified, experienced technician, IPL Photofacial therapy is both safe and effective. As a professional skin-care clinic, we will not perform any procedures without first assessing: your complete medical history; your current health condition; and any potential you may have for complications. Additionally, we provide all clients with protective eyewear that must be worn during treatment.
  • Is IPL Photofacial treatment painful?
    Most patients liken IPL to the gentle snap of an elastic band against the skin. Others experience it as a very short pinprick. While no anesthetic is required, we do cool the skin, which helps to minimize any discomfort.
  • How long does it take for sun spots/ age spots to fade after the IPL Photofacial treatment?
    The darkened area typically begins to fade in 2 - 3 weeks. This is when you'll also begin to notice that many superficial brown spots around the treated area are becoming lighter, and less noticeable.
  • What are the possible side effects of IPL Photofacial treatment?
    By definition, IPL therapy involves short, intense pulses of light being delivered to the skin. As a result, you may experience small raised bumps and redness in the treatment area shortly after your treatment. This will subside in a few days and is no cause for alarm.
  • How long is a typical IPL photofacial treatment?
    A typical treatment can last anywhere from 40- 50 minutes including skin care with red light therapy after IPL photofacial to treat your skin to heal more quickly.

We chose Dysport® because it has faster on-set and may last longer based on studies and our experience. Studies also suggest that regular Dysport® treatments not ony make you look younger while in effect, but may prevent a further deepening of dynamic lines and wrinkles over time, thus helping to delay the aging process.

  • How Does Dysport® Work?
    Dysport® is one of the treademark for neuromodulators that has been used for cosmetic purposes in North America since the late 1990's. it is designed to relax facial muscles to treat wrinkles. When a small amount of neuromodulator is injected into a muscle, it works by inhibiting nerve signals that act to contract muscles. This in turn causes the lines and wrinkles to diminish. It is by far the most popular cosmetic procedure that is highly effective, non-invasive and with no downtime.
