Bio Skin Techniques such as Bio Skin Jetting
BioSkin Jetting is a natural method for correcting wrinkles. All wrinkles and small facial blemishes can be visibly reduced using this technique.
BioSkin Jetting is based on its capacity to regenerate the skin. By activating the area immediately underneath the wrinkle, the skin is stimulated into forming new tissue. This new tissue contains young collagen and elastic fibres that spread through the wrinkle.

Dermapen Cryo allows the removal of unsightly skin lesions with a treatment that is delivered in a matter of seconds. The device uses a very precise jet of highly compressed liquefied nitrous oxide (N2O) to destroy benign lesions, such as warts, skin tags, and age spots. The Cryo freezes the lesion’s intercellular fluid, forming ice crystals, which subsequently rupture the cell membrane, destroying the cell. The Dermapen Cryo can treat anything from extremely superficial sun spots, to lesions up to 5 mm in depth.
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive fat removal procedure, often marketed as fat freezing. It is the cooling of subcutaneous fat cells, which induces lipolysis, the breaking down of the fat cells, without damaging any of the surrounding tissues or the skin.
Deep Sea Mud
Dead Sea black mud is worldwide known for improving skin’s natural processes, easing rheumatic pains, relaxing muscles and providing inner calmness.
Dermarolling remolds the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin, increasing the formation of new tissue by activating the body’s wound healing cascade (hemostasis-inflammation-proliferation-tissue remodeling). The micro-channeling causes the release of growth factors that promote scar-less healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen rather than scar collagen.
A dermaroller is a skin needling device with many small surgical needles. Dermarollers come in needle lengths between 0.13 and 3 mm. The needle diameter (thickness) is approximately 0.25 mm at their base.
Dry needling is a technique in physiotherapy fields that uses acupuncture needles to treat pain and dysfunction caused by muscle spasms / stiffness, sinus trouble, headaches, and some nerve problems. Nothing is injected into the body with the needle and it is safe and sterile to use.
Dry Needling works by changing the way your body senses pain (neurological effects), and by helping the body heal stubborn muscle spasm associated with trigger points (myofascial effects). There are additional electrical and chemical changes associated with dry needling therapy (locally and throughout the body) which assist in the healing process.
Dry needling, also known as Trigger Point Acupuncture or more traditionally Ashi Acupuncture. Dry needling involves the insertion of a fine needle into a trigger point (a tender spot on a muscle) and is usually used to treat injuries.

Infrared Body Wrap
The Infrared Body Wrap is a natural heat therapeutic treatment which uses Far Infrared Heat Energy (FIR) that penetrates twice as deep as other heat sources to target toxins and cellulite trapped in pockets below the surface of the skin. Using the body’s natural cooling system, the deep heat treatment simulates metabolism and helps to reduce cellulite, burn calories, remove stored toxins, increase weight loss and help to contour one’s body. Simultaneously, the deep penetrating heat will help relieve chronic pain, improve joint mobility and increase blood circulation. Unlike traditional body wraps, the Infrared Body Wrap does not use mud or liquid and does not even require you to remove your clothing.

IPL ( Intense Pulsed Light) Treatment
IPL is short for intense pulsed light, a popular treatment that treats broken capillaries (“spider veins”) and hyper-pigmentation (“age spots”) caused by age and sun damage. IPL also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which plumps up the skin and gives you a fresher look. It achieves best results when part of a series of treatments, usually a month apart.

Light Heat Energy – beauty
Light Heat Energy (LHE) therapy is a safe and effective form of skin care. It can be used in the treatment of psoriasis, acne, skin tightening and rejuvenation, wrinkle reduction, collagen renewal, vascular and pigmented lesion treatments as well as hair removal.
LED Light Therapy
LED therapy uses specific colour wavelengths of light that penetrate the skin at varying depths. The light works to energies cells in the skin to produce collagen, improve elasticity and increase blood circulation and oxygen flow while releasing toxins.
This stimulates the anti-ageing process, helps to normalize cellular imbalance and improves skin tone and clarity.
It is a natural reaction, similar to that of plant photo-synthesis which triggers the body to convert light energy to cell energy.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Lactic Acid Peel
Similar to glycolic acid peels, lactic acid peels are alpha hydroxy acids (AHA). Derived from milk, they are very mild chemical peels with little to no downtime. Because lactic acid is a natural human metabolite, there is less chance of an allergic reaction with this type of peel.
Therefore, they are a good choice for first-time peel users or for those with sensitive skin. However, dry or oily skin types can also use this peel and get good results. Lactic acid is especially good for to use for mature skin.
Low Level Laser Therapy
LLLT is a laser or LED light therapy that improves tissue repair (skin wounds, muscle, tendon, bone, nerves), reduces inflammation and reduces pain wherever the beam is applied. Usually applied by a doctor, therapist or technician, treatments typically take 1 – 10 minutes and should be applied two or more times a week
Also known as Cold Laser Therapy. A therapy using specific light wavelengths thought to improve the healing process.
The microdermabrasion technique works with microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin. But small enough not to do any damage or even cause discomfort or pain. The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new, living cells leaving a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical beauty treatment involving the use of conventional or homeopathic medication and or vitamins. Traditional mesotherapy involves needles injecting substances into the skin of the face. No needle mesotherapy in contrast uses electrical currents and low temperatures to carry the substances into the skin.

NIR Skin Tightening
Near-Infrared skin tightening with Soprano Ice is an effective treatment for treating loose skin on many areas of the body. It’s commonly used for the face, neck, upper arms, abdomen and hands. It works by passing a safe near-infrared light over the skin, gradually heating the water content deep in the tissue below the skin. This causes collagen fibres to contract and tighten, resulting in the smoothing out fine lines and tightening of sagging skin. Fibroblasts are also stimulated which promote new collagen formation. A lubricant is applied to the skin first and the constant, contact-cooling application of the NIR head, ensures that the outer skin stays cool and comfortable, while the lower dermis is heated to achieve optimum results.
Techniques used to improve facial appearance without surgery
Thread lift treatments are a minimally invasive procedure using dissolvable PDO threads (Polydioxanone threads – a medical grade thread used for suturing for over 20 years) which are broken down naturally by the body over time. PDO Thread Lifts are designed to rejuvenate, regenerate and improve your facial structure, giving you the same benefits as a facelift, but without the need for surgery.
A non-surgical face lift technique, reducing wrinkles, tones muscles and lifts the whole face.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is a skin care treatment being offered as an alternative to physician-administered laser therapy. Most studies involving red light therapy revolve around the treatment of acne, rosacea, and of its ability to get rid of wrinkles. While research is not yet conclusive on the benefits of red light therapy, studies suggest that concentrated red light is absorbed by the mitochondria in the cells and stimulates the generation of more collagen: the building block of skin structure.
A face lifting massage. Helps ease small line and wrinkles.
Skin Peels/ Chemical Peels
Skin peels treat the top layers but also penetrate the mid to lower levers of the epidermis, delivering stronger, extended results. Because chemical peels are so active and deeply penetrating, downtime of up to 10 days can be expected.

There is now laser whitening or ‘power whitening’. During this procedure a rubber dam is put over your teeth to protect the gums, and a bleaching product is painted onto your teeth. Then a light or laser is shone on the teeth to activate the chemical. The light speeds up the reaction of the whitening product and the colour change can be achieved more quickly. Laser whitening is said to make teeth up to five or six shades lighter.
Ultrasonic Cavitation is widely recognized as one of the most effective cellulite reduction and local fat loss technologies available today.

Weight Loss Wrap
Body wraps are often used for weight loss, although experts suggest any benefit is only temporary. The treatments involve binding and compressing the body with plastic and thermal sheets. Moisturising products may be applied including various minerals, herbs and other substances, such as rosemary, seaweed, algae, mud,coffee, honey and even chocolate. The main goal is usually to lose inches, often in targeted areas of the body. However, body wraps are also promoted as helping with a range of other issues
