After the skin is cleansed, the exfoliation solution will be applied to the skin. The reaction of the individual will determine how many layers are applied. After the chemical peel treatment, a soothing masque will be applied to the skin.

A chemical peel takes 30-45 minutes depending on the strength of the peel and how many layers are applied.
Most clients do not experience any symptoms after the chemical peel. A post-peel home care pack is recommended and instructions are given to each client. A light flaking or peeling of the skin may be noticed 3-5 days post-peel.
Treatments can be performed every 14 days, depending on the strength of the peel. Chemical peels are most effective when performed as part of a regular maintenance program.
The acids used in our chemical peels include, but are not limited to lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acids. The strength of our chemical peels is not associated with prolonged downtimes.

It is a skin treatment procedure that involves an electric skin-needling device. The device contains 12 very fine needles. It is used during micro-needling procedures to break down old scar tissue and push skin cell generation. Cell production leads to the creation of new layers of elastin and collagen fiber and leads to improved blood flow in the skin.

The device slides along the skin and penetrates upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create tiny needle wounds. This signals the body to respond by producing collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, the skin becomes fuller, thus reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles.
Some of the conditions that Medical Microneedling is known to improve include: mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks.
Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take a few months to appear.
It begins with cleaning and numbing the skin. A collagen-stimulating product, Vitamin C serum, and/or skin lightener is also used. A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allows for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a few hours. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation, and sunscreen can be used to protect the skin. Makeup use should be limited to mineral makeup.
Some of the known benefits of Medical Microneedling include: greatly improves topical cream effectiveness and penetration, stimulates blood circulation and collagen production, needles are non-allergenic, cost effective compared to other resurfacing procedures, works on all skin types, and can treat the scalp, face, and body, including skin around the eyes, mouth and neck
 
Medical Micro needling is known to improve many aspects of the skin including, but not limited to: improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, regenerates tissue, improves the appearance of scars, reduces the size of pores, and reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
 
 
Medical Micro-needling is safe to use on all skin types and colors without risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
 
 
Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.
 
 
Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least 3 treatments, while scar reduction requires between 3 and 6. 4 to 6 weeks should pass between one treatment and the next, and the number of treatments needed depends on individual cases. Micro-needling can be used on all parts of the body (neck, decoltee, arms, legs, etc). Usually results begin to appear after the first treatment.
 
 
 
No negative side effects result from micro-needling, and none have been seen in the more than 1,000,000 procedures that have been done worldwide.
 
AHAs (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or active ingredients should not be used for 2-3 days after treatment to allow for maximum healing. Sun exposure is not recommended and sunscreen is encouraged.
 
Medical micro-needling is safe on all skin types and colors because the epidermis is not damaged during treatment. The chance of change in pigmentation or post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation is minimal. Skin micro-needling can be used on sensitive and fragile areas (eyes, neck, back of hands) that cannot be treated easily with other procedures. Micro-needling is not suitable for patients who have used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months, have open wounds, cuts or abrasions, have had radiation skin treatment within the last year, are suffering from any skin infection, condition, or herpes simplex in the area of concern, are pregnant or breast feeding, have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing.
 
This is discussed during a free consultation. A treatment is put together for each client, at which point cost is discussed. Treatment decisions are based on each patients individual needs and desired results. Medical micro-needling can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
 
 
Post-op infections are extremely unlikely given that the tiny wounds close quickly and the treatment is done under clinical conditions.
 
 
The laser works by selective photothermolysis, which means that the light energy is selectively absorbed by pigmented areas. Hair follicles that are in the anagen, or active growth phase, have the largest amount of melanin, or pigment, and can absorb light energy from the laser. However, hair follicles that are in catagen or telogen growth phases are less pigmented. Therefore, these follicles do not absorb light energy as well and hair growth is not impaired. The energy, or heat, from the laser damages the hair follicle, which impairs its ability to grow hair. With time, the hairs that were present in the damaged follicles will fall out, resulting in a smoother appearance and less hair growth.
The length of an individual treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to specific kinds of hair and skin. It is important to understand that hairs in an active growth phase (anagen) are most affected by treatments. Since all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, several treatments are necessary to achieve the best results. Practitioners design customized treatment programs, and give patients an estimate of how many sessions may be needed in order to meet expectations. The treatment may cause some minor discomfort. Patients often describe it as a slight tingling or compare it to a pinch or the sting of a snapped rubber band. Most patients tolerate the procedure well; topical anesthesia is rarely required, but may be an option when treating more sensitive areas.
Hair grows from deep within hair follicles, which are thin cavities embedded in the dermis. Hair does not grow continuously, but grows in a three-phase cycle. While the rate at which hair grows differs by individual, the length of the hair growth cycle generally depends on the type of hair. For example, the active growth phase of the hair on your head may last several years, while hair on the body has an active growth phase that may last only a few months.
Following the procedure, your skin may appear red or irritated. However, the redness will likely dissipate within one to two days. It is also important to use sunscreen for a few weeks following the procedure. You should not use any products that may irritate your skin, such as alpha-hydroxy acids or harsh astringents. In addition, you should avoid plucking or waxing of the treatment area.
Anyone whose skin shows signs of aging is a candidate for Pixel Perfect. The most dramatic results are seen on people who have tried non-invasive therapies and are looking for something more aggressive. The best candidates have moderate sun damage, are in good health, have good health habits and typically take good care of their skin.
Pixel skin rejuvenation treatments usually take less than 30 minutes, but could be longer if your condition is more advanced. Your exact treatment regimen will depend on your individual condition.
Pixel treatments are safe and effective, without injections or surgery. You can expect your skin to be flushed and red after the treatment, but this is completely normal and short-lived. As long as you carefully follow your post-treatment instructions, this will be the limit of the difficulties you might experience. You skin may flake and scale for about 1 week after the procedure.
How much the procedure hurts varies from person to person. In general, the procedure can feel similar to sunburn. The sunburn sensation is likely to continue after the treatment. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process and should improve quickly. All our patients undergo the procedure easily. An additional cooling device ensures constant skin surface protection during the treatment. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
While Pixel treatment reverses the appearance of aging, we can’t stop the aging process. Depending on your starting point and your lifestyle following treatment, your new look can last several months or longer. For most patients, after a package of 3 treatments, a touch-up treatment after 6 months (usually using a different light-based skin rejuvenation technology) helps maintain a healthy glow.
Pixel treatment costs vary, depending on your treatment area and skin condition. Please ask a clinic consultant about the best treatment regimen according with your skin condition and general health.An initial consultation with our Clinic Consultant will be followed by signing a consent form. A patch test will be done if suitability for treatment is established. Clinical photographs will be taken.
A laser resurfacing treatment enables you to comfortably achieve a more youthful appearance without downtime.The laser resurfacing technology precisely heats the connective tissue within the target treatment area. This stimulates collagen production and produces a younger appearance in the skin. Mild to moderate wrinkles are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic.
Most patients start to notice improvement of wrinkles between 2-3 treatments sessions performed 1 month apart. Some patients note improvement even after the first treatment. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition.
During sessions, an IPL device emits flashes of light that pass through the top layer of skin to reach the deeper dermis layer that houses blood vessels, pigment cells and collagen. The epidermis layer of skin is untouched, so patients don’t have the redness and peeling associated with traditional laser skin resurfacing techniques. Treatments also help reduce future rosacea flair ups as well as stop the inflammatory process that scars the nose and cheeks.
You will experience a slight sensation as the pulses of therapeutic light are passed over your skin. The sensation is very mild and easily tolerated. Topical anaesthic creams are not required.
A series of 3 to 5 treatments is scheduled. Each treatment takes less than one hour to perform. Treatments are scheduled approximately 3-4 weeks apart. A series of treatments will take about fifteen weeks to complete.
It has been demonstrated that the majority of people will achieve most of their improvement after five treatments are performed. Improvement is gradual and becomes evident after several treatments have been completed. Hyper-pigmentation reacts right after the first treatment; however, the redness needs at least 2 treatments to improve and collagen at least 3 treatments in order to show improvement of fine wrinkles and skin laxity.
The results achieved from the treatment series can be expected to last for possibly several years or longer. However, with the passage of time and with environmental exposure, skin ages as we do. IPL Photorejuvenation will provide benefits and significantly reverse many of the visible signs of sun-damaged skin. The improvement that has been achieved following a first series of five treatments can be maintained by occasional single maintenance treatments.
Maintenance treatments are recommended in order to maintain the positive benefits that have been achieved after completing the first series of five treatments.
Flushing associated with rosacea is harder to eliminate, but we can significantly reduce it, usually within four to seven sessions, which are scheduled two to four weeks apart. Patients will see improvements between sessions. Touch-up sessions are needed about every two to five years to keep the rosacea to a minimum. IPL therapy often allows patients to stop using medications. Once the unsightly spider veins and small red bumps are removed, flair-ups are dramatically reduced. In addition, the inflammatory process that causes scarring of the nose and cheeks is stopped.
No. This procedure is a “no downtime” procedure meaning that you may return to all scheduled activities immediately.
Your skin may look slightly flushed temporarily. This mild “glow” will usually not be noticed by other individuals. If you wish, you may apply powder or make-up right away. The pigmentation and the broken capillaries might turn darker towards the end of treatment and even towards the next day. This aggravation is considered to be an excellent prognostic sign and it is not a reason of concern. A tinted moisturizer or mineral powder is recommended in order to minimize the side effects. In maximum 2 weeks after treatment the skin will show an impressive improvement.
No. We prefer to treat skin that is not tanned, although a slight “chronic” tan may be acceptable. Our laser specialist will assess your skin at the time of your consultation.
Areas of skin which will benefit the most are generally sun exposed areas. The commonest areas treated are the face, the neck, the chest and the backs of the hands.
Skin will look refreshed and rejuvenated. Improvement in tone and texture of skin is experienced. A significant reduction of brown and red areas of discoloration, small red blood vessels (spider veins) and irregular areas of pigmentation occurs. Pore size is reduced by one third. A reduction of red discoloration will be evident in individuals with rosacea or abnormal flushing. Skin looks more beautiful following IPL Photo rejuvenation.
Yes. We require that you be seen in consultation prior to your first IPL Photorejuvenation treatment. IPL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive medical procedure. Your skin must be assessed by our Laser Specialist prior to scheduling your first treatment. You will benefit from the experienced assessment of a qualified trusted doctor with more than 15 years’ experience with lasers. During your consultation any specific concerns or questions will be addressed.
The color of the water may be different for each individual due to water you use such as city water, well water, mineral water and the state of your health. When you put the metal array into water by itself you may see color changes in the water such as a brownish color. But it is the oily residue floating on the top that determines if you are getting rid of unwanted toxins in the body. The more you use the machine the less you will have the ugly build up in the water. Black or brown-the liver. Orange-the joints. Dark green-the gallbladder. Yellowy green-kidneys or urinary tract. White foam-Lymph nodes draining. Blue tint-yeast. Red flecks-blood clot material. Black flecks-heavy metals.
This is a safe therapy for anyone over the age of 10 years, except for those who wear a pacemaker or have seizures. This is suggested therapy for people who have accumulated many stored toxins and are not able to get rid of them efficiently, due to overworked liver, spleen, and kidney functions. This is especially recommended therapy for those who take a lot of medications. The ionic detox foot bath does not eliminate beneficial medications from the body.
Most people will feel relaxed, balanced, and focused. There is usually no pain. People who suffer from excessive toxicity may experience some discomfort as their bodies release toxins from the tissues for elimination. After a detox foot bath, clients are encouraged to drink plenty of water to assist with making elimination easier and more comfortable. Some people may experience fatigue or headache after a session.
During a session the client sits in a comfortable chair. Most individuals find the experience very relaxing and the session takes about 30–40 minutes. Some people may experience a slight tickling or tingling sensation from the ionic detox foot bath.
The process is based on osmosis initiated by a coil immersed in the water-filled footbath. The coil can release ions into the water. The polarity is reversed periodically, creating positive and negative ions, which are then taken up into your body through your pores. Your cells are then supposed to be energized by the ions in the water, which encourages your cells to release oil, acid, fat, heavy metals, and other debris and waste which has accumulated in your cells and bloodstream over your entire lifetime. As your cells release the toxins through osmosis, the toxins are carried out of your feet and back into the water, turning it a bright rust color, or a murky brown, or some other dramatic shade. This re-energizes the body and the red blood cells. It eliminates toxins that are stored in fat, kidneys, liver, bowels, and skin. The foot bath also triggers the body’s lymphatic system, which helps with continuing detoxification for up to 24 to 48 hours after a session.
The negative ions of the foot spa cell cleanse will first penetrate the skin and start to pull toxins out of the lymphatic system. These toxins are from the immune system cleaning up the body and transporting them to the skin and lymph nodes for removal. The foam forming on top of the water is similar to the form on the top of a beer. This by-product may also be from candida utilizing sugar as an energy source and creating alcohol in the system. Next the ionic foot spa cell cleanse will start to draw the toxins that have bio accumulated in the blood and muscle tissue. This is where we will see the deposits that over the years of living in a toxic environment and a healthy lifestyles will start to show.
The major health objective is to have healthy cells. There must be a balance of positive and negative ions in cells and molecules. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, the atoms and molecules become positively-charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively-charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing through the feet provides a full-body purge of all vital organs. This can alleviate menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, skin problems, acne, sleep problems, restlessness, stress, toothaches, wrinkles, aches and pains, and yeast infections. The internal cleansing can also contribute to faster disease healing and injury recovery. Due to a busy and stressful lifestyle, many people do not eat a balanced diet. They may end up storing excessive quantities of toxins and waste products in their bodies. During a detoxifying foot bath session, ions from the module enter the body and begin to neutralize tissue acid wastes. This process is called reverse osmosis.
It is suggested that you begin with a total of 6 sessions over a 3–5 week period to maximize detoxification. After these initial sessions, you can switch to monthly sessions. Natural Health and Beauty Clinic offers a detox foot bath series package.
This will depend on your personal condition, lifestyle, and your willingness to take responsibility for your health. The frequency of the detox foot bath sessions also plays a role in how quickly results are achieved.

The majority of patients are able to see visible results difference immediately after the 1st treatment – especially following treatment on the face. However, in order to achieve long-term results, you will need to undergo several TriPollar treatment sessions.
Long-term results vary depending on the area to be treated and the desired result. In general, you will need to undergo between 4 and 8 treatments on average. The number of treatments sessions is determined according to your specific needs by the physician or aesthetic professional. In order to sustain the results, it is important to maintain a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and exercise.
No, You can resume your daily routine immediately after a Tripollar treatment and there is no need for special care. (We do advise to apply sunscreen to protect the skin).
A TriPollar treatment feels like a warm massage. It is pleasant and pain-free. Some patients even report falling asleep during treatments. The treatment lasts an average of between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on the treatment area.
In order to maintain the results it is important to maintain a lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise. In addition, it is recommended to undergo maintenance treatments every 8 to 12 weeks to prolong and enhance the results.
TriPollar treatments are suitable for all skin colors, including dark and pigmented skin. The treatment is based on Radio Frequency (RF) energy: energy that produces heat in the target area. Unlike lasers or other optical energy-based devices, RF is “color blind” meaning that it has no affinity to skin pigmentation, such as melanin or hemoglobin.
In general, if you are healthy, then you are a suitable candidate for TriPollar treatments. There are a very few specific treatment contraindications such as: pregnancy, superficial metal implants in the treatment areas, and a pacemaker. Your physician or aesthetic professional will confirm your suitability after taking a brief medical history.
After TriPollar treatments, you can immediately return to your daily routine. It is a “walk-in, walk-out” procedure with no downtime.
TriPollar treatments are suitable for women who are post-pregnancy for circumference reduction and tightening of loose skin. However, it is recommended to start the treatment only between 1 and 3 months after delivery, in accordance with each individual’s post-partum recovery.
TriLipo is Pollogen’s proprietary technology which combines two kinds of energies, TriLipo radiofrequency (RF) and TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) which are emitted simultaneously by applicators on the Pollogen system. The TRiLipo DMA energy causes the muscles to contract and push up against the skin’s adipose fat layer. The “pushing up” force created by the muscles along with the “pushing down” mechanical force of the applicator moving on the skin enhances drainage of the fatty acids released by the TriLipo RF heat energy the Pollogen. The muscle activation also helps spread the heat generated by the TriLipo RF evenly. Contraction of the muscles also improves venous return and accelerates removal of metabolic byproducts released due to the heating effect of the RF energy. In facial treatments, the TriLipo DMA energy enables toning of the muscles and lifting of the superficial muscular system (SMAS) underlying the facial skin.
TriLipo technology is very safe. RF has been used in medicine for over 75 years and in aesthetic medicine, it has been used for more than 10 years. The Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) parameters are very safe, even at the highest settings the DMA cannot cause injury or damage to muscles.
The treatment sensation has two aspects. Since the TriLipo technology combines RF with Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA), the sensation is a result of both technologies. The RF effect will be a heating effect of the skin. You should feel a very pleasant heating of the area, similar to a warm massage. The DMA has various power levels and the sensation is different per DMA strength. The practitioner will adjust the DMA parameters to enable a very tolerable treatment. DMA at low energy levels feels like bubbles bursting on the skin surface. As the DMA parameters are increased, the sensation changes to a sensation similar to rubber bands snapping in the treated area and higher DMA parameters will induce a sensation of real muscle contraction.

Cellulite is visible as a result of enlarged fat cells that are under the skin (adipose fat) pushing up against the weakened dermis. Cellulite is a condition associated with poor metabolism and with hormonal levels. TriLipo technology treats cellulite by a combined effect.

The TriLipo RF induces thermal heating of the adipose fat, increasing metabolism in the tissue. The increased heat induces a natural process of fat breakdown in the fat cells. The byproducts of fat breakdown are released from the fat cells to the extracellular matrix (ECM) and fat cells shrink in size. In addition, the thermal effect also affects the dermis by inducing an immediate effect of collagen tightening along with a long term effect of neocollagenesis (generation of new collagen). The combined effect of reduced size of fat cells along with “strengthening” of the dermis enables an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

The TriLipo Dynamic Muscle Activation (DMA) energy that is emitted simultaneously with the TriLipo RF energy increases circulation and improves lymphatic drainage of the released byproducts of fat breakdown. The DMA also tones the underlying muscles, adding to the general improvement of the treated area.

Typically, the standard protocol for these treatments is 6 sessions. However, if needed, more treatments can be added according to severity of the condition. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 1-3 months to maintain and improve the treatment results.
Results are different per body area and per person. In general, facial treatments will usually produce a nice immediate tightening and improvement of skin texture. Loose skin on the abdomen can feel tighter immediately after the first session. However, in most cases it takes several treatments to notice long lasting results.
