Q: How do I pick the right facial treatment for my skin?

If a dermatologist or other skin professional has recommended certain ingredients, simply ask us exactly what goes into each facial paste. But if you’re unsure and need direction, our professional skin care therapists are glad to help! We can provide a free skin assessment to determine what type of treatment would best fit your unique skincare needs.

Q: How long do IPL treatments take?

Your Intense Pulsed Light treatment takes around the same amount of time as a wax treatment for the same area. The first visit will be around 30 minutes to perform as we need to do a patch test and ask you some questions.

Q: Why do I have to have many IPL treatments for hair reduction?

IPL targets the hair compound called melanin, this give hair the colour (pigmentation). Melanin is most prevalent in hair during the early-anagen phase of hair growth, and hairs in this stage of growth are the ones most responsive to Intense Pulsed Light. Ongoing treatments are needed to catch each hair as it passes through this early-anagen stage of development, that may result due to hormonal fluctuations though out your life-time.

Q: Why are Laser/IPL treatments costly?

This simple reason for this is due to the high acquisition cost of machines, maintenance and the materials used during these treatments, are also very costly. However, when you consider the cost of waxing over the years, in addition to the time it takes out of your busy day – the benefits outweigh the initial upfront cost.

Q: Will I have to come back for repeat skin rejuvenation treatments?

In relation to vascular lesions – It will depend what the trigger was. In some cases, you may only require a few treatments and no follow up, on the other hand, skin conditions such as Rosacea, will need on-going maintenance and home care for the best possible results.

Q. What areas of the body can be treated?
