The Benefits of Photo Rejuvenation

The Benefits of Photo Rejuvenation

Special Offer Below – Receive a $100 Voucher!*

Did you know that our Photo Rejuvenation treatment will reduce the signs of pigmentation, redness and capillaries of the face and body with laser light treatment?! The MaxG delivers visible results quickly, with treatment sessions taking just minutes, so you can resume your busy life.

This is a non-surgical treatment that will improve your skin’s appearance quickly and easily using the new generation of IPL. Our advanced PhotoFacial treatment with the Icon™ MaxG addresses facial age-related concerns such as pigmentation, sun spots and redness.

Using the latest technology in Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), it creates wavelengths of specifically filtered light to target melanin (brown pigment in age spots and freckles) or haemoglobin (red blood cells in blood vessels). Low energy light is delivered to the skin where imperfections are found and, as the skin absorbs this energy, it breaks up, causing the imperfections to fade and revealing a fresh complexion.

In addition to this – the light energy also increases the production of collagen in the skin, which helps to improve tightness and texture of the skin over time for a bright, healthy complexion.

Results are both immediate and progressive as over time as the skin continues to create new collagen, making it feel softer and smoother, with a brighter appearance and more even skin tone. A series of treatments may be required for desired results.

Beauty and Skincare Tips for Wedding Season

Beauty and Skincare Tips for Wedding Season

Goodbye Summer and hello Autumn! Such a beautiful time of year in Sydney, with the Summer heat behind us, crisp blue skies and oceans, and the flora beginning to change… It’s a favourite time of year for many, including our beautiful brides-to-be, who will soon be getting ready for their big day!

On your Wedding day, lets face it, all eyes will be on you (sorry, hubby), so you’ll want to have a flawless face free of dry skin, blemishes, and other skin impurities. For our delicate facial skin, it is recommended to start prepping months in advance and getting to know your skin will be one of the most important relationships you will have (again, sorry hubby).

Here are our Autumn Beauty and Skincare tips for Wedding Season, not only for our brides, but for anyone looking to improve and nourish their skin after a hot Summer and before a cold, dry Winter!

1. Know and Feed Your Skin

Ensure your daily beauty regimen includes cleansing, exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing morning and night. This can make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin. Although these steps might seem obvious, this is where you don’t want to skimp on the quality of what you are putting on and absorbing into your largest organ, your skin!

*Fun fact: your skin absorbs what you put onto it and travels into your bloodstream within 26 seconds, so choose your products wisely!

Truly understanding your skin is the first step towards a lifetime of skin health, so why not start with a consultation with one of our professional skin therapists. At the Beauty Base, we are armed with highly skilled and knowledgeable skin experts who only use and provide the best products on the market that are no fuss, scientifically proven skin care that truly works!

Read more about our range of skin care brands and products >>

To enhance the effects of your daily routine, you should also consider a regular facial or peel. A word of warning though…don’t opt to start right before the big day! Consult your Beauty Therapist on the best timing of these treatments.

Another option that might be suitable is our HydraFacial treatment that will hydrate your skin and leave you with that highly coveted, perfect complexion.

Book in for a consult with our Beauty Base experts to advise you on the best treatment options for your skin, to have you looking and feeling gorgeous for your wedding day >>

2. Smooth skin all over

Although your wedding gown may cover a lot of skin, that’s all the more reason to highlight the visible zones like your neck, chest, back, and shoulders. You can consider the neck and chest an extension to the face—the skin is just as delicate, and requires similar maintenance. When washing, exfoliating, and moisturizing, make sure you’re hitting these spots as well. As for back and shoulders, exfoliate while in the bath or shower, and follow with a gentle cleanser and moisturizing lotion or oil daily. This will keep your exposed skin looking and feeling soft and smooth.

DRY BODY BRUSHING

For the rest of the body, consider incorporating a dry body brush into your daily routine. Dry body brushing is an ancient beauty technique that promotes healthy, glowing skin. It helps stimulate the normal lymph flow and increases blood circulation within the body (see-ya cellulite), aiding the body to detoxify itself, naturally. It will also rid your body of dry, dead skin, helping prevent ingrown hairs, eliminating toxins, and unclogging pores. This process will only take a few minutes and is a beautiful self care routine.

On dry skin before bathing, start on the front of your body with your ankles and work upwards in a circular motion toward your heart. When you move to your back, brush from the neck down to the lower back. To ensure your skin is at its purest, follow with a cool shower to wash away dead skin and don’t forget to seal your beautiful skin with your favorite body oil or moisturiser to keep your body glowing!

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Why not consider treating yourself to Laser Hair Removal? Shaving will be the last thing on your mind in the lead up to the big day, and of course the honeymoon! Ensure you plan ahead and start your sessions early.

At the Beauty Base we use the medical grade FDA & TGA approved Candela GentleMax Pro system, which is the most advanced and effective laser for hair removal in the world. For maximum comfort to our clients, all candela machines provide advanced cooling devices to protect the skin and make your experience near pain free!

We also currently have up to 50% Off Laser Hair Removal during our Autumn Laser Sale >>

3. Prep Your Hands and Feet

If there is one day in your life that you’d want to have beautiful hands, it’s your wedding day. Between statement heels and close-up shots of the wedding band exchange, feet and hands need to look picture perfect.

Prepare the hands and feet by dry brushing, exfoliating with a pumice to soften feet and heels, and of course using a moisturizing lotion throughout the day every day, especially after showering. Avoid soaps that are prone to drying; this will protect against cracking, calluses, and roughness.

And like professional spa treatments caring for your face and body, a professional manicure and pedicure will ensure beautiful healthy skin and nails. Ensure you test out your favourite colours and styles of nails in the months leading up to your wedding day, and book your final manicure and pedicure as close as possible to the big day, to ensure chip-free lacquer.

4. Healthy, clear skin from the inside out

You know what they say: You are what you eat. And when you’re giving the skin—as well as all of your other organs—the nourishment they need, you’ll not only look fabulous, but you’ll feel fabulous, too. Generally, there are a few things to keep in mind that will benefit every inch of your skin. First and absolutely foremost: Drink plenty of filtered water. Water will flush toxins from the body, and given enough time, will aid in the fight against breakouts. Other ways to heal the skin from the inside out is to adopt a real, whole foods diet (fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, and lean meats), and consider taking supplements. Specifically for skin; biotin, omega-3, and vitamin E supplements are all good choices along with a good probiotic and collagen supplement. Just consult your doctor before you start any supplement intake.

Have you also tried our new range from The Beauty Chef? By raising awareness of the link between beauty and gut health, Beauty Chef founder, Carla, has shown beauty really is more than skin deep. She firmly believes it’s an inside-out process. Every product in the range is a blend of Certified Organic, nutrient-dense wholefood ingredients, prebiotics and probiotics, all scientifically-formulated to fortify skin on the inside and outside.

5. Skin Smart

Brides often want to rock a beautiful bronze, but baking in the sun is not worth potential drying out, wrinkles, and age spots. Don’t get me wrong, vitamin D intake is super important but, be smart about it, avoid the direct harmful effects when the UV index is extreme with a hat, organic sunscreen and sun safe clothing.

And of course, if you want a completely safe, glowing look, book in for one of our Tuscan or Naked tans. Just be sure to test out well before the big day so we can get the perfect tan for you >>

6. Stress affects your Skin!

Feeling overwhelmed? Don’t let stress take over! Stress only flares up our unwanted inflammatory skin conditions, such as Eczema or Psoriasis, as it weakens the immune system. Not to mention, disrupts your beauty sleep!

Why not try booking in for a regular massage, yoga class or download a meditation app? So many wonderful benefits for your mind and body!

Another great way to de-stress and let your mind and body unwind, is Float Therapy. Our Boutique Medispa in Gregory Hills, now has it’s very own Dream Pod.

Here are the key things to remember:

  1. Begin a daily beauty regimen that includes exfoliating, cleansing, toning, and moisturizing with nourishing products to feed your skin
  2. Remember to treat your neck, chest, back, and more—try out body brushing and Laser Hair Removal!
  3. Moisturize your hands and feet, and get a regular mani/pedi
  4. You are what you eat— Drink water, eat healthy, take vitamins!
  5. Practice sun safety or try out a fake tan
  6. Stick to the routine and keep stress levels low, and you’ll have a wedding glow!

Lastly, if you do find yourself with a rouge blemish or other skin emergency the day of: Don’t Panic. Try not to irritate it further by picking or squeezing. If you end up with blemishes on your face or body, use a blemish cream and let your makeup artist do the rest.

Preparing the skin for your wedding day might seem like a daunting task, but once you get into a skin-saving routine, your glow will make that routine hard to break— long after the vows are exchanged!

Dermapen for clear, radiant and youthful skin!

Dermapen for clear, radiant and youthful skin!

Erase the past with Dermapen skin needling!

The Dermapen4 is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to increase cell renewal and stimulate the production of collagen, leaving you with smoother, healthier skin! The treatment will tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin and visibly improve the appearance of: Fine Lines; Wrinkles; Acne; Scars; Stretch Marks; Pigmentation; Open Pores.

Dermapen is a natural way to improve the appearance of the skin and reverse the signs of aging. Clinical treatments unlike Laser resurfacing may be performed on all skin colours and background with minimal down time.

What skin conditions can Dermapen help manage?
Dermapen is a great anti-ageing, stretch mark and pigmentation solution which is incredibly effective even for hormonal pigmentation and old stretch-marks, some of the hardest skin issues to treat. Dermapen is best used together with other treatments like peels (Glycolic or Jessner peel) or masks to create visible results.

Areas it can help manage are:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Ageing/Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation/UV Damage
  • Acne/Pimples/Blackheads
  • Scarring
  • Enlarged pores/Seborrhea
  • Stretch Marks

Just look at these amazing results after 6 treatments of Dermapen for acne and scarring!

And how does Dermapen work?

Dermapen treatment is Collagen Induction Therapy.

Dermapen therapy provides advanced skin micro-surgical needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

The principle behind the Dermapen is stimulating cell renewal and new collagen, without damaging the epidermis. The treatment uses a device called the Dermapen4 with 13 very fine needles designed to achieve a ‘controlled injury’ to the skin without damage. The needles create micro-channels into the deeper skin layers resulting in an increased absorption of the active ingredients into the skin from products. There is a topical product infusion increase by 200%!

As the skin repairs itself, new collagen is deposited in the papillary dermis, plumping the skin from underneath, to smooth out wrinkles fine lines and indented scars. The skin’s strength, collagen and elastin are improved for a rejuvenated, smooth and youthful complexion.

Regular treatments result in a firmer, smoother and more youthful skin.

Treatment Information

After a thorough skin analysis, a practitioner will prescribe a personal course of needling treatments appropriate to the skin condition being treated. Ideally treatments are performed every 6-8 weeks to ensure maximum results. Each clinical appointment will last approximately 45 minutes.

Results may be seen even after one treatment. Clients report a firmer, even toned, more revitalized skin with a visible decrease in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, acne, enlarged pores, scaring, stretch marks.

Home care can be used 2-3 times a week at home. Treatments can be performed in as little as 3 minutes and the device will last up to 6 months before a replacement is required.

Beauty Base DNC derma roller 0.25mm home care treatments require no down time and have no discomfort. In salon treatments may feel slight discomfort but it is over quick, just like IPL or a wax. Clients will generally be red and tender after the treatment and possibly through to the next day, after this time the skin will start to heal and look and feel normal.

How many treatments will I need and what is the cost?
With a quick free skin consultation we can create a treatment program to suit each client’s personal needs, with a full skin analysis and pre assessment. Your dermal therapist will provide you with insight into home care products, home care routine and in-salon treatment protocols. 3 treatments are usually recommended (unless deeper pigmentation or scarring is the issue) with an additional yearly top up to keep the skins cell rejuvenating to their healthiest ability. These initial treatments will be at 6-8 week intervals between each visit.

Here is a basic treatment guide –
Skin Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments (8 weeks apart)
Acne Scarring: 6 treatments (8 weeks apart)
Stretch Marks: 4-8 treatments (6-8 weeks apart)
All treatment plans tailored for each client.

All packages also include a Home Roller worth $89.

The Benefits of Cosmelan Treatment by Mesoesthetic

The Benefits of Cosmelan Treatment by Mesoesthetic

The world’s leading depigmentation treatment, Cosmelan, is the end result of years of research. It is usually a one off treatment suitable for all skin types and pigmentation concerns, including melasma. This amazing 2 in 1 peel also helps with acne and acne scarring, rough or dry skin, general skin tone and anti-aging. The Cosmelan treatment is a versatile process adapted to the needs of each individual.

Who can benefit from Cosmelan?
Anyone concerned with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation caused from Acne. Melasma can present itself as bilateral patches of uneven skin tone on cheeks, forehead and upper lip, whilst acne scars are often brown marks on the skin. Cosmelan is safe to be performed at any time of year, on new or stubborn pigment deposits, all ages, skin colours and ethnicities. It is generally performed on the face, neck, chest and back of hands.

What are the main benefits of Cosmelan?
You can now achieve up to 95% reduction in pigmentation and finally have an even complexion without the use of lasers or foundation! This safe and non-invasive procedure treats the source of pigment formation and delivers you a brighter, clearer and more clarified luminous complexion. Most clients see a dramatic reduction in just 1 session and to ensure long lasting results, home care products are recommended.

This specialised system can deliver the following results:

  • A reduction in all types of skin pigmentation including melasma and post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation
  • Increased skin luminosity
  • Equalisation of skin tone
  • Inhibition of the formation of melanin
  • Increased collagen production

Just look at these amazing results even after just 4 weeks of a 6 month program!

And how does Cosmelan work?

Cosmelan fades the appearance of existing and stubborn pigmentation whilst preventing the formation of future pigmentation production.

The Cosmelan treatment works by decreasing the skin’s melanin production by inhibition of the enzyme tyrosinase. Inhibition of the tyrosinase is only activated during treatment application. When finished, the enzyme recovers its activity producing new melanin, particularly if there is sun exposure. Due to this, application of Home care products must be used to maintain results. Under no circumstance does tyrosinase inhibition make the melanocytes disappear, but simply paralyses or stops melanin production, without risk of white blemishes appearing. Cosmelan action causes complementary inhibition of other enzymes involved in the eumelanin production process, like dopa tautomerase, among others. Cosmelan 1 mask and Cosmelan 2 maintenance treatment formulas act on the different melanogenesis stages to increase effects and achieve certain synergy. They have been developed from vegetable and chemical origin to guarantee maximum level of tyrosinase inhibition.

What happens during treatment and are there any side effects?

A mask is applied at our clinic that remains on your face for 8 hours. The treatment itself only takes around 20-30 minutes. The mask is washed off at home and you may expect 2 to 7 days of light to heavy peeling, redness, sensitivity and mild swelling. The following day after the treatment you are offered to lie under the Rejuvalight LED to assist with the healing process and reduce redness.

The result? After the initial week, skin appears luminous, revived, fresh and smooth.The Cosmelan pack includes take home products to assist in the skin’s healing phase and prevent pigment from returning. It is imperative that you stick to the home care regime prescribed for you in order to keep the pigment from returning.

Is there any downtime?
There is usually 3-4 days of skin redness and mild to moderate peeling can be experienced for up to a week.

Are there any contraindications
Rosacea
Pregnancy
Patients under 12
Roacutane

I’m considering a few different options, what are the main advantages over other pigmentation treatments?
There are many advantages over alternative treatments including:

  • Usually only one treatment required
  • Rapid lightening action
  • For all skin types and good tolerance
  • For all kinds of skin blemishes of melanic origin including Melasma which is difficult to treat with lasers
  • Can be used any season of the year
  • Can treat hyperpigmentation caused from lasers and other chemical peels
  • Gives the skin that dewy glow and builds collagen which increases skin firmness and texture.

What is FibroBlast and how does it work?

What is FibroBlast and how does it work?

Fibroblast is a proven non-surgical skin tightening and lifting treatment which is highly effective and a remarkable alternative to surgery! No knives, anesthesia, stitches, swelling, long downtime, possible complications, bruises etc. Fibroblast is a quick and easy procedure with very minimal risks or side effects!

So who can benefit from FibroBlast?
Anyone who is looking a little tired and becoming conscious of lines, loose skin and other skin conditions like skin tags. If you would like to have a beautiful, fresh, radiant complexion with no sagging skin- Fibroblast is the treatment for you!

Fibroblast can:

  • Tighten and lift loose skin – eyelids, face, neck, stomach and more
  • Reduce wrinkles and lines
  • Reduce acne scarring
  • Remove age spots

Just look at these amazing results – even after 1 treatment!

And how does FibroBlast work exactly?

This new revolutionary facial-lifting technique is a huge step forward in anti-wrinkle treatment technology. After your treatment, the skin around the chosen areas is instantly tightened and you’re left with a rejuvenated and youthful look. It works by shrinking and shortening the skin fibres, lifting the skin.

Fibroblast is performed with a Plasma pen and produces a tiny, temporary dot on the skin which stimulates instant tightening of the skin and activates Fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are the cells that carry collagen to repair the skin. As full healing occurs, over the following 6-8 weeks, new collagen is produced naturally by fibroblast cells as they divide to repair the tiny spots on the skin, further improving the effects of the treatment. Fibroblasts are the cells that carry collagen to repair the skin.

What area of the body can I get FibroBlast?

Why is Hydrafacial good for my skin?
Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of ageing. HydraFacial is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.

Am I a candidate for this treatment?
The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your physician or skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customise the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult your physician or skincare professional for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.

How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain involved?
Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.

What results are expected? How many treatments are needed for results? How long do the results last?
Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.

What is uneven skin tone?

An uneven skin tone, called hyperpigmentation, is irregular darkening of the skin. The cause: overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin and hair color. The resulting dark patches and spots are typically perceived as “aged skin” and can make you look more than 12 years older.

What causes uneven skin tone?

Sun exposure: When your skin is repeatedly exposed to UV light, sun damage occurs. Brown spots and uneven skin tone develop as a result of too much melanin being produced to help protect your skin from UV light.
Pollution: Particles and gasses from traffic-related air pollution are able to penetrate the skin and lead to formation of brown spots, particularly on the face.
Hormones: Melasma is hormone-related hyperpigmentation caused by increased hormone stimulation. It’s most commonly experienced by women who are pregnant (which is why it’s also known as the “mask of pregnancy”) or taking contraceptives, but can also be a reaction to cosmetics or medications.
Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation: This is a darkening of the skin as a result of scarring, which can be caused by acne lesions or skin injury.

How to get a more even skin tone…

Apply SPF daily: Unprotected sun exposure is the number one culprit behind hyperpigmentation. Applying a sunscreen or moisturizer with a Broad Spectrum SPF of at least 30 is the easiest way to help prevent new spots.
Exfoliate: Treat existing hyperpigmentation by first sloughing off dead, dulling skin cells at the surface. This clears the path for the ingredients in your serums and moisturizers to better penetrate the skin.
Use the right ingredients: Seek out products that contain Activated Charcoal to help remove pollutants; Oligopeptides, Niacinamide and Zinc Glycinate to help control melanin production; and Retinol to restore skin.
