FAQS

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Once a hair follicle has been successfully treated, it will not return, however there is no laser or IPL machine that can claim permanent hair removal. Our Laser will provide PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION. Results are dependent on the individual and may vary due skin type, tanning, hair colour, medications or hormones, varying considerably between people and in each person between areas.

How many treatments are required?

On average 4 to 8 treatments are required. It is impossible to pre-determine the exact number of treatments as they vary from person to person. Generally speaking the thicker and darker the hair the better the results from the treatment. On average 3 to 5 treatments are required in order to see noticeable results, with at least 80% hair reduction.

What areas can be treated?

All areas of the body excluding close to the eyes and the inner ear can be safely treated. The most common areas treated are upper lip, chin, face, neck, bikini line, legs, chest, underarms, back and abdomen.

Can there be any side effects?

The majority of people treated don’t experience side effects and return to normal activity immediately without any adverse sign of treatment. Few experience mild redness or mild swelling that on average lasts from an hour to 24 hours. In rare instances redness can last longer and some people have experienced mild grazing which dissipates over a short period of time.

Does it hurt?

Some people have found the treatment uncomfortable. Most people find it more tolerable than waxing. It is likened to the flick of an elastic band on the skin which dissipates quickly.

HYDRAFACIAL

Am I a candidate for this treatment?

The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your physician or skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customise the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult your physician or skincare professional for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.

How long does the treatment take?

Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes.

Is there any downtime?

You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.

What results may be expected?

Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.

SKIN NEEDLING

What is the treatment?

Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

Is the treatment painful?

Traditional dermal rolling techniques proved to be a bloody and painful treatment, requiring the application of topical anaesthetic cream (TLA) before treatments. Dermapen 4™ is the most comfortable, virtually pain-free micro needling treatment available. Dermapen 4™ treatments are so comfortable there is no need for any TLA. Just lay back and enjoy stunning results.

How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks?

(General guide)

Rejuvenation*: 3-6 treatments 6-8 weeks apart

Acne scarring: 4-6 treatments 6-8 weeks apart

Stretch marks: 4-8 treatments 6-8 weeks apart

Pigmentation: 4-6 treatments 2-4 weeks apart

*Superficial treatments maybe recommended at 4 weekly intervals

How long should it take before I see results?

Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 3 to 6 treatments (spaced 2-8 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended

post-treatment care.

Is there any downtime after treatments?

Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of Dp Dermaceuticals™ Cover Recover™ will seal and heal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
