From Fraxel and IPL to Omnilux, Clear +Brilliant and Collagen Induction, understanding the range of skin treatments available and what they can do to address your ageing concerns can be overwhelming. Winter, however, is the best time to start a skin rejuvenation course, so to help you choose the right treatment to perfect your complexion, here's the lowdown on what's on offer at About Face:
Fraxel - When it comes to tackling sun damage and fine lines, this resurfacing laser is the 'big gun'. It targets the water molecules within the skin to kick-start a healing response that results in an increase in the production of collagen and elastin – the building blocks of youthful-looking skin. About Face is the only clinic in New Zealand to offer the premium Fraxel Re:fine laser, giving us the ability to refresh the contours of the face, reverse sun damage, reduce fine lines and improve skin firmness, learn more
Collagen Induction (CIT) also known as micro-needling and dermal needling, is a revolutionary approach to anti-ageing. It stimulates the body’s own natural collagen repair and growth processes to significantly improve skin tone, texture and impurities. Micro-needling utilises and enhances the body’s own natural response to healing. A sterile roller with hundreds of tiny 1mm micro needles makes tiny pin pricks when passed over the skin. This causes skin cells to make new growth factors, collagen and elastin, which in turn make skin smoother, firmer and more radiant., learn more
IPL - IPL (intense pulse light) is a high-tech skin treatment that uses flashes of light to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. It is particularly good at addressing problems like acne scarring and skin discolouration, such as redness or brown spots. It can be used to treat the face, décolleté and the hands, creating stronger more even-looking, healthier skin. As pioneers of IPL, About Face skin experts have undergone years of extensive training and nothing offers results like experience. For a visible change in the look of your skin, learn more
Clear + Brilliant laser (C+B) - This gentle laser treatment is a simple, safe and effective way to target the first signs of ageing as well as dull-looking skin and acne scarring. Results are both immediate (you'll notice a difference a few days after your first treatment) and progressive (so your skin will keep improving over time), making this an ideal treatment if you're planning a special occasion and want a dewy, radiant glow, learn more
Omnilux - Known as the 'happy light' in beauty circles, a session under this glow-giving lamp is safe, painless, non-invasive and relaxing. Omnilux works by stimulating the skin's natural rejuvenation process to correct concerns such as acne, wrinkles, and even psoriasis. Omnilux Plus firms skin by improving collagen production, while Omnilux Blue eliminates the bacteria that sits on the skin's surface causing inflammation, acne and redness. Finally, Omnilux Revive is a natural alternative to acne medications, soothing inflamed, irritated and blemished skin within a few weeks, learn more
