Hair care

A revolution for your skin; 

Plaxpot Plasma treatment

Plasma Plaxpot is a new revolutionary method of cosmetic procedure that requires no cutting of the skin, no injectable anaesthetics, minimal downtime with surgery like results that can last up to five years.

During the procedure Plasma is created by electrical energy from the device, which at the right distance from the skin ionizes the oxygen and nitrogen in the air to create a small plasma arc, similar to a tiny lightning bolt. When this hits the skin it vaporizes any liquid in the skin at the point of contact, the surrounding skin tightens around it, giving a shrinking and lifting effect. Even though skin layers get vaporised by the plasma (via heating, fragmentation and vaporization), they do not burn off, they simply flake off a few days later as part of the healing process. The skin fibroblasts are stimulated to produce collagen and elastin giving a further tightening effect. Effects are visible right away, full results start to occur after 8-12 weeks.

Skin care: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Scientifically proven to produce new collagen, for the treatment of fine wrinkles, improve redness and scaring,  Lighten Pigmentation spots and sun damage & hair reduction.

The Laser rejuvenation procedure uses a non-invasive laser technology. This safely, naturally and effectively can treat  fine line wrinkles through increasing collagen generation, It can also be used to reduce redness and scaring. After each treatment. you can expect to see a progressive improvement. Such treatments are performed on a relaxed setting, are not uncomfortable and do not require any form of anesthetic. Hair reduction couldn't be more easy! Minimal pain and great results, this service is highly customized so that each client can achieve their desired results without compromise.

Clients describe their treatment as relaxing and therapeutic, that produces a gentle warming of the skin's surface which is cooled topically to ensure the integrity of the skin during the procedure. It is important to use a sun screen at all times when having IPL treatment however you can return to normal activities immediately.

On average, you may require six to eight treatments (for hair Reduction) in order to achieve optimal results. Each patient's condition and needs vary. Laser assists to restore the skin's youthful glow and appearance through subtle changes that can add up to quite dramatic changes.
