5 Treatments to get Summer Ready
The countdown to a summer that sizzles with beach days, barbecues and cocktails with friends is on. At least, that’s what we’re hoping for! So don’t waste a minute. You need to get your summer look on. That means prepping face and body so you’re ready-to-go for all the fun of hot days and long nights. We’ve got you sorted with our five, favourite pre-summer treatments.
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Eliminate pesky shaving by booking in for Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal asap. It’s a simple, effective way to remove unwanted hair on your face, or body, and throw away the tweezers, razors and hair removal creams. You’ll need a course of six to twelve treatments to get silky smooth but, once you’re done, you
can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with an occasional maintenance treatment. That means slipping on a bikini, or a pair of shorts, without worries about hair removal. IPL hair removal is also great for getting rid of pesky hairs near lips, or stray hairs around your chin.
Say Goodbye to Blotches
Sunspots and broken capillaries can really spoil your skin look. But you don’t have to take them through summer with you. LED (Light Emitting Diode) phototherapy is a gentle, light-based treatment that helps diminish unwanted pigment so your complexion can be blemish-free. It produces no heat so it’s comfortable and suitable for all skin types. Best of all, there’s no downtime, so you’ll be summer ready after your recommended number of treatments.
For broken capillaries, our therapists recommend our IPL & Vascular Laser, a non-invasive solution to those tiny, red, thread veins. Usually a course of four to six treatments is needed to get the best result. Know that we use only the highest-grade medical equipment and our practitioners are
among the most qualified in the region to perform professional skin treatments
Peel Back Time
Get baby-face beautiful with a chemical peel or “medi-facial” that can boost your skin’s appearance and health. Whether you have acne or congested skin, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, or dehydrated or rough skin, a pre-summer peel is the way to go. It works by providing a chemical exfoliation of your skin using clinically proven ingredients. Our therapists can design an individual treatment for you, after a skin assessment, to target your concerns.
Boost Good Glow
In summertime, we want skin that looks radiant with good health and an active lifestyle. Of course, you can help by maxing fresh fruit and veggies, drinking lots of H20 and making sure to get plenty of exercise, including sweaty stuff that boosts circulation to clean out toxins and help your complexion look attractively dewy.
We can help with a skin boosting microdermabrasion that banishes old skin cells from the superficial top layer of your skin. Think of it as out with the old, in with the new. What you’ll then have is a complexion that not only looks fresher but absorbs topical skincare products including moisturiser more deeply.
Get Your Defence Ready
It’s not technically a treatment but we’d certainly say it’s the one thing you absolutely cannot step into summer without. So let your fingers do the clicking and stock up on some of our favourite sunblocks before the temperature starts to rise. Skinceuticals Ultra Facial Defense SPF50+ protects skin from both UVA and UVB light with 24-hour hydration and a lovely, light texture. Its state-of-the-art UV filters to prevent photodamage that can wreck all the good work
you’ve done on your complexion.
Having great skin is as simple as making a booking. No matter what skin problem you want to address before summer, we’re here for you.
