AlumierMD treatments

AlumierMD Medical Grade Peels
AlumierMD Medical Grade Peels AlumierMD products cannot be compared to skin care products sold in department store or chemists as these are often diluted and manufactured for general concerns. AlumierMD products combine a variety of medical-grade ingredients, including AHAs, BHAs, retinol, antioxidants, vitamins and peptides, as well as innovative new components. The concentrations of these ingredients are generally much higher than in drugstore brands, and work synergistically to improve skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, dry skin, hyperpigmentation and ageing skin.
 
A chemical peel is a specialist treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.

Chemical peels are classified as light (superficial), medium, or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Light peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis. Deeper peels require more downtime and increase the chance of side effects, which include photosensitivity, pigment changes and scarring.

We offer light- to medium-depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels. Chemical peels should be performed by a trained skin care professional in a clinical setting so that they are delivered safely and effectively.

Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of skin forcing your body to quickly replenish it with new cells. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this deep exfoliation as it would to trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.

Our therapists will create a personalised skin program that combines professional treatments with home care products since they work synergistically to improve the health and beauty of skin. Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications. Post-treatment products minimise complications, heal and soothe the skin and then maintain the results. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.

Carbon Laser facial

If you want the perfect complexion without pain or downtime then this treatment is for you.

Carbon Laser Facial, also called the Hollywood Facial is the preferred facial of celebrities  for red carpet readiness.

The Carbon Laser Facial is a very gentle non-invasive laser procedure with zero down time using activated charcoal to improve the radiance of the skin. The carbon is virtually blasted off the skin from the perfectly fired laser. Dead skin cells, makeup residue, clogged pores, oil and blackheads are removed, leaving the skin radiant and glowing.

First developed in Asia, it has now become one of the most popular Anti-Ageing laser skin treatments available. It is the ideal treatment for active acne and large pored skin. The laser facial reduces oil secretion, removes blackheads and refines enlarged pores. Patients with oily skin often enjoy the noticeable reduction in excess oil production in as little as two sessions.  It is an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh skin leaving the skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer. Many clients use this procedure as an instant pre party skin refresher.  As there is no downtime, resuming your daily routine is possible immediately after treatment.

Carbon laser treatments can also be performed on the chest and back for the treatment of acne and blackheads.

Why choose a Carbon Facial treatment?
Our medical grade laser combined with organic and plant based products, with a 3 step enhanced protocol to achieve very smooth skin results. We avoid the use of harsh chemicals at all costs applying the best quality activated charcoal and organic rejuvenating after skin care.

Does the treatment hurt?
The treatment is non-invasive and gentle, often described as a light tingling of approximatly 45 minute duration.

How many treatments will I need?
Immediately following the treatment you are likely to notice a smoothing of the skin.  Everyone’s skin is different so the recommended number of treatments will be discussed at the time of consultation. This treatment can be a wonderful “one off “treatment before a special night out or great for people with acne or who require large pore cleansing and reduction of oil over a few treatments. As The Carbon Facial gives significant improvement to one’s skin tone and texture, some customers choose to undergo regular treatments to maintain a good complexion.  2 weeks is often required between treatments.

What improvement will I see?
A reduction in pore size, a reduction in blemishes and oil and a rejuvenated, more youthful skin, is what you can expect with this treatment.  It is essentially a resurfacing with no downtime.

Vampire facelift

PRP Facial Rejuvenation (Vampire facelift)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’ is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure which makes use of the patient’s own blood mixed with a product to promote collagen growth underneath the skin. It’s a revolutionary repair system that places growth factors in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.

What are the advantages of the PRP facial?
The potential benefits of PRP have led to widespread interest in its use for anti-aging and regenerative purposes. The healing properties of the blood components in PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment for the following:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightening and toning skin
  • Mild collagen and volume loss
  • Crow’s feet and dark under eye circles
  • Acne scarring
  • Rosacea

PRP therapy is predominantly used on the face, particularly around the eyes, mouth and nose although it may be used on the backs of the hands and all over the body, more commonly the décolletage to give a more youthful and radiant appearance.

What is the treatment process
The treatment involves extracting platelets from the patient’s own blood in order to inject them into problem skin areas, starting with the extraction of a minimal amount of the patient’s blood (10mls). This is then placed in a centrifuge, for a few minutes, to spin the blood which separates the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. Platelets contain a high content of ‘growth factors’ – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Upon re-injection, the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to reproduce, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.

The whole procedure only involves needle injections to the desired areas, requires virtually no healing time and also reduces possible side effects to a minimum.

The procedure usually takes less than an hour and patients can go home or to work following treatment.
