So what’s all the fuss about?
Micro Needling is an all-round amazing treatment. A favourite among celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian, it caters to a multitude of skin concerns and is safe for any skin type. If you suffer from acne scarring, enlarged pores, fine lines or wrinkles, this is the ideal treatment for you!
The science behind it..
The best part about Medical Micro Needling is that your own body does all the work. There is the dermal roller and the Dermapen which penetrates your skin on different levels, and creates micro injuries to the skin. This kick-starts your body into repair-mode, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. More collagen and elastin means smoother, more refined, tighter skin, and who wouldn’t want that?
Does it hurt?
The term itself “micro needling” may sound a little scary! But rest assured a numbing cream is used on your skin before your treatment so you feel no/ minimal pain and discomfort. After your treatment, you can expect some redness and sensitivity for a few hours, and some flaking for up to a week. This is all part of the healing process.
We recommend a course of 3-5 treatments, 3 weeks apart for best results.

Platelet Rich Plasma aka The Vampire Facelift treatment, you can rejuvenate your skin naturally. It is the most natural and safest yet effective treatment available on the aesthetic market right now to rejuvenate the skin especially the under eye area.
With celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Angelia Jolie, Kylie Minogue, and teh gorgeous Vogue Williams devoted to PRP due to effectiveness, naturalness and minimal downtime it is no wonder we had to make this treatment available to you.
Platelet Rich Plasma treatment uses a purified and concentrated portion of your own blood to rejuvenate your facial skin. The treatment involves harvesting platelets from your own blood; therefore the first step is to extract a minimal amount of blood. This is then placed in a centrifuge to spin it down separating the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. These platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – are injected into the skin, which ignite tissue regeneration, stimulate collagen production and also help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin.
Vampire Facelift can be used to treat the face, neck, hands and all over the body with excellent results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and skin contours are redefined to create a youthful, radiant glow. It is hugely successful in the treatment of areas such as, crow’s feet, sunken eyes, acne scars, and wrinkles, fine lines around nose, lips and neck area.
As PRP treatment uses your own blood, it contains no foreign or synthetic chemicals and therefore has no side effects. The rend result is 10-15% more volume in the skin. Treatment results continue to improve over a period of 6-12 weeks, and it is recommended that 3 treatments are done in total 6-9 months apart.
The downtime is fairly minimal, slight puffiness. However if treating the eyes, there may by some swelling and bruising.
