DMK Enzyme Therapy in Auckland

DMK Enzyme therapy treatments are designed to rebuild the skin’s core strength to make it healthier and more vibrant.

Enzyme therapy enhances optimal skin functioning by working with internal systems to increase lymphatic drainage and circulation, delivering extensive amounts of oxygenated blood and nutrients to the skin cells. Reverse osmosis flushes through the cells helping to clear toxins, waste, and free radicals, increasing free water levels leaving the skin bouncy and youthful. Enzyme Therapy stimulates collagen production, restoring structural integrity back to the skin whilst being suitable for a wide range of conditions such as ageing skin, sun damage, congestion, acne, rosacea and pigmentation.

Alkaline Hair Removal 1/2 Face-$95

Description +

The DMK alkaline wash system is a remarkable treatment leading to hair removal and can be used on most parts of the body, but is commonly applied to fine facial hair.

What is alkaline wash and how does it work? Alkaline wash is an alkaline powder that is mixed into a paste and applied to the desired area for a short period of time, depending on the coarseness of the hair. The treatment is not like a hair removal cream. It is of a much higher pH, for the purpose of not only hair removal but reducing hair re-growth. After the first treatment hair will grow back at its normal rate, but as treatments progress the rate of re-growth should lessen, usually resulting in a reduction of the appearance of hair over a period of time.

Q. How many treatments will I need before the appearance of hair is noticeably less?

It is impossible to estimate how many treatments are required as hair removal is dependent upon a number of factors such as:

  • How the hair has been previously treated
  • How long the hair growth has been there
  • Reasons for the hair growth Some clients report a reduction in hair growth after just one treatment; however there is no guarantee as every client’s skin/hair responds differently.

The advantage of the alkaline wash is that it is possible to remove large areas of hair in one treatment, with little to no discomfort. What is alkaline wash and how does it work?

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a light source. During treatment an LED facial light is used to produce specific wavelengths of light that are absorbed into your skin. Your skin then uses this light energy as fuel to drive cellular reactions, such as the production of proteins and lipids that are required for building and restoring the skin, or increased intercellular communication and purification. As we age, our metabolism slows down, meaning our cells loose energy, and our body produces less collagen and elastin – the essential ingredients that support and nourish our skin.

Different colours represent different wavelengths of light. The different wavelengths have unique properties and can therefore be used to target certain skin conditions. For example, the wavelength of light that corresponds to blue light can be used for acne treatments. This is because blue light is absorbed by porphyrins, which are molecules that are produced by P. acnes, the bacteria that causes acne. On absorption, the light creates a chemical change, resulting in free radicals. The free radicals then kill the bacteria from the inside, without harming the skin cells. On the other hand, red light, stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin and thereby improves skin strength.

On the other hand, red light, stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin and thereby improves skin strength, elasticity and plumpness and also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

BENEFITS OF LED LIGHT THERAPY

  • Kills acne bacteria and facilitates clean, clear skin
  • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Firms and contours the skin
  • Improves colour and texture
  • Improves sun-damaged skin
  • Hydrates and revitalises
  • Improves circulation
  • Helps treat rosacea and calms redness
  • Promotes healing
OUR MACHINES

We use the Healite II LED machine which is a medical grade LED to target different concerns for ultimate results. Our settings are matched with your skin concerns, creating a pattern of different lights, to ensure maximum results. Blue light therapy is sterilising and used to eliminate bacteria, excellent for oily and acne prone skin. The yellow light therapy calms and heals the skin, promoting collagen production and encouraging cell renewal. This is perfect for reducing wrinkles, hydrating the skin and helps with overall face firmness. The yellow light therapy is calming, reduces redness, swelling and inflammation. Very beneficial for rosacea and treating sunburn.

Your beauty therapist will discuss these with you in the consultation process and decide which light would be best suited to your skin, and skin concerns.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The number of treatments needed varies with different skin types and conditions.
Smoother, more hydrated skin with a radiant sheen can be seen even after the first treatment, however we typically recommend a course of 9 treatments, 3 times a week for 3 weeks for optimum results. As with any skin care treatment, maintenance is highly recommended to ensure lasting results. On average, a maintenance treatment is suggested every four to six weeks.

Add an LED Light Therapy session to your facial or peel treatment for $65. The light will be on the skin for 10-20 minutes depending on the condition being treated.

Dermaplaning in Auckland

Dermaplaning / Epidermal Levelling is a safe procedure for gentle, yet controlled exfoliation while also temporarily removing fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, we simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes ridding the top dead skin cell layer and hair, giving a brighter, radiant looking complexion. There is no pain or downtime with Dermaplaning and results are immediate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
  • Brighter complexion with a more youthful glow
  • Skin will be softer to the touch and smoother in appearance minimising pores, fine lines and wrinkles
  • Active ingredients in skin care products penetrate more deeply improving your results
  • Temporarily removes fine vellus hair
  • No pain – just a light pressure
  • No chemicals, unless you choose to have a peel afterwards for deeper exfoliation targeting concerns
  • Makeup glides on easily, making it the ideal pre-event treatment – we recommend 3 days prior to an event
  • Suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive skins (excluding those with metal allergies)
  • There is no downtime – mild pinkness can be expected for 30-60 minutes
  • Safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women

Results are immediate and will be seen with each treatment. We recommend Dermaplaning every 4-6 weeks depending on your own hair growth cycle, and treatments can be ongoing.

    Will there be more hair growth and will the hair grow back thicker after the treatment?

    No, dermaplaning does not affect the actual hair follicle. Every individual hair follicle has its own individual DNA, which we are born with. This will determine whether it is vellus (light, thin) or terminal (thicker, darker). Terminal hairs are predetermined, they tend to appear due to hormone changes such as pregnancy, menopause and hormonal imbalances. Some medications can also increase hair growth. Once the hair is cut it has a blunt edge, but this blunt edge does not mean that the hair structure itself has been physiologically altered. So therefore, Dermaplaning does not affect how your hair would regrow. It will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.

    Are there any harsh side effects?

    No, there is no downtime with Dermaplaning. Initially the skin may be slightly pink due to the removal of hair and exfoliation, and increasing circulation of the skin. Some people can get slight faking of the skin after a few days which can be gently exfoliated at day 3-4. Please make sure to keep your skin well nourished and moisturised as recommended by your therapist. Due to the nature of using a blade, there is always the possibility of a small nick which we try our best to avoid, but it can happen from time to time. This is very superficial to the surface, and will disappear within 2-3 days. We also cannot treat those with nickel allergies due to the metal blade and possible reactions.

    What does my treatment entail?

    If you have not been to us for facial treatments before we will do an initial skin consultation to ensure there are no contraindications to the treatment such as allergies to metal and raised lesions. Your treatment starts with a double cleanse to ensure all surface makeup is removed, we follow this with a solution to help further remove any surface oils and remaining makeup to ensure the skin is clean. We then will proceed with your Dermaplaning treatment using a new sterile bladed handle which gently applies pressure as it ‘swipes’ back and forth across the skin on an angle. We will remove fine vellus hair from the full face and neck (if required) with this action. This gives a clean controlled exfoliation to the skin along with removing the fine vellus hair. Once we have completed this we will follow your treatment with a Peptide Sheet Mask which has calming and hydrating properties. SPF is applied after your treatment and recommended for daily use.

    You can be pink after your Dermaplaning for an hour or so, and we recommend not to wear makeup on the day of your treatment to ensure skin is kept clean from bacteria. Possible ‘nicks’ can happen, however we do try our utmost best to avoid this, but due to the nature of the blade it is a possibility which is why we recommend having this treatment a minimum of 3 days prior to an event. If you have not had Dermaplaning before and wish to have it for your wedding, we highly recommend having a trial beforehand.

    At Loft Skin + Beauty we only use high quality, one time use sterile devices. We pride ourselves on both our knowledge and experience but also on our thorough consultations that ensure we have all the necessary information to minimise the risk of complications. At Loft Beauty Boutique you can be sure that your safety is our first priority.

    SkinPen creates controlled micro injuries that stimulate the body’s own natural wound healing response which initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue.

    Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure involving the movement of a pen-like device with an attached sterile, disposable cartridge tip containing small needles over the skin’s surface. The micro needles puncture the skin and create tiny micro injuries that are not visible to the naked eye. These tiny punctures stimulate tissue regeneration through a process called collagen induction therapy (CIT) which improves the appearance of the skin.

    Microneedling assists in the rejuvenation of the epidermal integrity resulting in improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can effectively remodel scar tissue whilst maintaining the overall structure of the skin.

    SkinPen can be used on the face and body and can treat a number of concerns:

     

    • Acne Scarring
    • Fine Lines + Wrinkles
    • Pores
    • Melasma
    • Surgical Scars
    • Skin Texture + Tone

    General Side Effects May Include

    While experiences vary between clients, the following can usually be expected after a SkinPen session:

    • Mild redness + swelling for up to 4 days post treatment
    • Slight discomfort subsiding in 24 hours
    • Mild crusting and scabbing for 2-3 days post treatment
    • Short term skin dryness, tightness, itching and/or tingling sensations
    • Skin Peeling
    • Temporary darkening of skin pigmentation followed by it lightening down.
    • Reactivation of ‘cold sores’ – we recommend taking an anti-viral prior to treatment if you tend to get an outbreak easily.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q. What Makes Micro Needling So Effective?

    A. The goal of skin rejuvenation is to restore skin back to optimum health. So that skin not only looks younger, but actually behaves younger. To accomplish smooth, plump, firm and evenly pigmented skin you need to target 3 key cells (keratinocytes, melanocytes and fibroblasts) and regulate their function. In doing so, you must also preserve the integrity of the epidermis, which is your skins natural barrier defence.

    Micro needling:

    • Increases cell to cell communication
    • Optimises cell function
    • Preserves the epidermis
    • Strengthens the dermal/epidermal junction
    • Breaks down scar tissue
    • Releases epidermal growth factors (EGF)
    • Increases natural collagen (TGF-Beta 3)
    • Induces regenerative healing
    Q. Who is SkinPen suitable + unsuitable for?

    A. SkinPen is suitable for all skin types and tones. We don’t recommend SkinPen for those with irritated skin, open wounds, bleeding disorders and allergies to stainless steel. Also patients taking medications that contain isotretinoin.

    Q. Do I need to prepare anything before my treatment?

    A. For the best outcome of your treatment we recommend starting a personalised homecare routine before your first treatment, and throughout your skin journey. This prepares your skin for the treatment, and gives the best outcome post treatment. A skincare routine at home consisting of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Growth factors, Hyaluronic acid, Antioxidants and Peptides for use pre-treatment and in-between treatments, are recommended to enhance the treatment to achieve the best results. Your therapist can discuss the best options for your skincare plan.

    Q. Is there any downtime?

    A. Generally most clients will experience pinkness, redness and heat to the area post treatment – similar to sunburn. Heat tends to subside within 1-2 hours and redness tends to reduce within 24-48 hours.

    Q. How many treatments will I need + how often?

    A. In most instances, clients need more than one SkinPen session to achieve their desired outcome. Multiple treatment sessions are recommended depending on the skin concern being targeted. Typically, 3-6 treatments are recommended for the best results. This plan may need to be reviewed over time. We recommend your treatments are spaced between 4-6 weeks which your therapist will advise, and can be intermittently used in conjunction with other treatments. Maintenance treatments are highly recommended following your treatment plan.

    Q. When will I notice results?

    A. Due to the nature of the natural healing process, results will continue to improve in the weeks following your treatment. Optimum results are visible at around 3-6 months post the final treatment session.

    Q. How does it feel?

    A. This varies from person to person, and by the area being treated. During the treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort however it is tolerable and kept to a minimum, with comfort levels checked throughout the treatment. We do not use numbing cream at Loft Skin + Beauty due to possible allergic reactions.

    Q. Can I use my skincare products after the treatment?

    A. You can only use the SkinPen kit after your needling session for up to 4 days post treatment. This is due to the microchannels created during the procedure which may remain open for up to 24 hours and that due to this reason unexpected complications may occur when products not proven safe for use with microneedling are applied.

    The recommended protocol following a SkinPen procedure is as follows:
    SkinFuse Lift HG should be used for 24hrs following the procedure and the use of SkinFuse Rescue Calming Complex may commence 24hrs after the procedure. Societe Peptide Mask used on the night of your treatment. SPF must be applied after 24 hours daily.

    Q. Can I wear makeup after my treatment?

    A. You can resume makeup after 24 hours – mineral is best.

    Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel

    Cosmelan by Mesoestetic is a clinical topical treatment specifically formulated to depigment the skin at surface level by effectively removing and lightening dark patches, resulting in a brighter, smoother and more even complexion. The method consists of an in-clinic treatment application, and a home care routine which is 7 months in duration.

    This treatment reduces freckles, age spots and pigmentation by using a two phased approach. First it deactivates a critical enzyme in the production of melanin and secondly, with at home care to eliminate existing excess pigment deposits.

    Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation method which has an intensive corrective effect on skin hyperpigmentation whilst regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting, and controlling the appearance of new dark spots.

    Anyone concerned with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation caused from acne can benefit from Cosmelan. It is safe to be performed at any time of year (must be diligent with SPF), on new or stubborn pigment deposits, all ages and skin colours.

    Cosmelan is considered an intensive treatment and your skin will feel quite tight, dry and could peel for up to a week or possibly longer. Before you take the plunge, make sure you are up to the challenge. If we don’t think you are suitable for this peel, we will tell you at your initial consult and work together to get you ready for the journey.

    Pricing

    Cosmelan Depigmentation Package - $1850

    Description +

    Your pack includes:
    Consultation + skin assessment
    Professional peel application
    Home care pack of 8 products ( 7 of these lasting 3-4 months)
    A post Cosmelan follow up + Healite Facial at day 7
    A second follow up and re-application (if required) 6 weeks post treatment

    Cosmelan Process:

    Step 1:

    Consultation:

    An initial consultation is required to provide education and discuss your options. Your skin therapist will go through medical history to ensure you’re a good candidate for the treatment. You may be required to start on a homecare plan to have your skin prepped for this peel.

    You will be required to pay a deposit for your Cosmelan application booking, which will be performed on separate day from your initial consultation.

    Step 2:

    Professional Treatment in Salon:

    Involves the application of a thick mask (Cosmelan 1) which takes approximately 30 minutes in salon. We suggest you book a morning appointment to give you the time to wash off in the afternoon.

    Once the mask is applied, you will go home with the mask on and leave it on for 8-12 hours depending on your skin type, sensitivity and therapist’s recommendation. You will be given education on home care over the next week which you must follow until you have the follow up appointment in a week’s time.

    Tightness, a slight itching or stinging sensation can be felt, which is to be expected and all normal. After your recommended processing time is elapsed and your mask is ready to be removed at home, just rinse off in the shower with warm water and the cleanser given in your pack.

    We highly recommend you take an anti-histamine on the day of your treatment, and 5-6 days post treatment.

    Your skin will be red and feel tight after the treatment for 3-4 days. Mild to moderate peeling can be experienced for up to one week. It is important to wear sunscreen daily and reduce exposure to sunlight.

    Follow up 1:

    Your follow up appointment will be in a weeks time which includes a Healite LED Facial and you will be given your Cosmelan 2 to continue onto the next phase of your treatment program.

    Homecare:

    Your homecare for the next 3-4 months is included in the treatment plan. Your pack includes a cleanser, toner, recovery mask, serum, amplues, Cosmelan 2, moisturising balm and SPF. Your therapist will give you information on how to use each product. This is critical to the success of the treatment.

    Follow up 2:

    6 weeks from your Cosmelan 1 application treatment we will do a follow up appointment in salon. This is to assess your skin, take after photos and apply the remaining of your Cosmelan 1 product (if required).

     

    Downtime / Aftercare

    Day 1-4: expect red, tight, hot and mildly swollen skin.

    Day 4-5: peeling will start around this time and may last 7-10 days. It is very important NOT to pick, rub or exfoliate the skin. Allow skin to shed naturally. If you pick the skin, you will increase the risk of infection and scarring.

    Results will appear 2-3 weeks post treatment, after the peeling has stopped. You should expect a significant improvement in pigmentation as well as clearer, brighter skin. Your skin will slowly improve over the next few months. Be patient.

    You may have red, sensitive skin for a few months’ post treatment.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: What should I do before my Treatment?

    A: A good skincare routine one month prior to starting this treatment is recommended for the best outcome. This ensures your skin’s barrier is in tact, and skin is strong. Vitamin A and C serums are a great start.

    Q. Are there any side effects?

    A. Your therapist will advise you to take anti-histamines for the first 7 days to reduce the inflammatory process, this is a precautionary action only, but we have found this has been worthwhile for clients in the past.

    In the first 12 to 48 hours you may experience some swelling and inflammation. Continue with the post treatment products as directed by your therapist. Your skin will peel after 3 days for approximately 3-5 days. It is important not to pick or rub the dead skin, but let it come off by itself. If it is feeling particularly uncomfortable apply one ampoule and gently massage into the skin as well as your mask (both included in the pack) and leave on.

    Q. What are the rare side effects?

    A. For some clients the inflammatory process can last a bit longer than normal. We still get great results; your skin is just taking a bit longer to get to the next recovery phase. We are there for each step of the process.

    Q. How does Cosmelan work?

    A. Cosmelan inhibits an enzyme called Tyrosinase, responsible for the manufacture of melanin. By slowing the melanin production, dark spots will soon fade.

    Q. What areas can be treated with the Cosmelan Peel?

    A. The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel can be safely used on the entire face, or any other areas such as arms or chest.

    Q. Is a Cosmelan Peel painful?

    A. The Cosmelan Peel is not painful. Patients report a brief stinging sensation immediately as the peel is applied, although this lasts only a few minutes.

    Q. How is the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel performed?

    A. After the skin is cleaned, the Cosmelan solution will be applied to the face. Patients will remove the mask at home, in approximately 8-12 hours. Over the following several weeks, specific after-care creams will be used on a daily basis.

    Q. How long will a Cosmelan treatment take to perform?

    A. Your treatment booking will take approximately 30 minutes. This is to go through any further questions you may have after your initial Cosmelan Consultation, and to apply the Cosmelan mask.

    Q. What is the aftercare following my Cosmelan treatment?

    A. Immediately after you wash off the Cosmelan 1 mask at home, you may experience side effects such as redness and flaking but these will gradually resolve on their own.

    Peeling effect usually starts about three days following the procedure and is often accompanied with a tight feeling in the skin and itchiness. Application of the home care regimen will help to soothe the skin and is a strict protocol that needs to be followed to ensure the desired results.

    Q. When I can see the treatment results and how long will it last for?

    A. Depending on your initial skin quality, you may see your unwanted pigmentation start to fade away and a brighter skin complexion as soon as one week after the treatment. With continuing use of the home care routine, the pigmentation will continue to fade and will help to prevent the reoccurring of unwanted pigmentation, resulting in maintained results.

    It is imperative to use sunscreen every day. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment to achieve desired results. Our therapists will work closely with you to recommend the required number of treatments to meet your expectations.

    Q: Who can’t have Cosmelan?

    A: 

    • Anyone who is pregnant or planning to get pregnant or breastfeeding.
    • People with allergies to any of the components of the formulations.
    • Those who have recently been on antibiotics, used hydroquione or taken Isotretretinoin in the last 12 months.
    • Any bacterial, viral, fungal or herpes infections in the areas to be treated.
    • Combining it with any chemical peels or hair removal techniques such as IPL or Laser.

    Please note- If you do not use your home care, forget to apply regular sunscreen or regularly expose your skin to the sun, the treatment will not work. We will make you sign a contract agreeing to these terms! (Yes, we take your skin very seriously).

    Many types of pigmentation including melasma and post inflammatory pigmentation are chronic. Peels like Cosmelan can help to reduce pigmentation, but they are not a cure, and will not “treat” the underlying problem.

    The peels remove the majority of superficial pigmentation, but will not remove all of it. Some deep, dermal pigmentation may be inaccessible.

    Alkaline Hair Removal 1/2 Face-$95

    Description +

    The DMK alkaline wash system is a remarkable treatment leading to hair removal and can be used on most parts of the body, but is commonly applied to fine facial hair.

    What is alkaline wash and how does it work? Alkaline wash is an alkaline powder that is mixed into a paste and applied to the desired area for a short period of time, depending on the coarseness of the hair. The treatment is not like a hair removal cream. It is of a much higher pH, for the purpose of not only hair removal but reducing hair re-growth. After the first treatment hair will grow back at its normal rate, but as treatments progress the rate of re-growth should lessen, usually resulting in a reduction of the appearance of hair over a period of time.

    Q. How many treatments will I need before the appearance of hair is noticeably less?

    It is impossible to estimate how many treatments are required as hair removal is dependent upon a number of factors such as:

    • How the hair has been previously treated
    • How long the hair growth has been there
    • Reasons for the hair growth Some clients report a reduction in hair growth after just one treatment; however there is no guarantee as every client’s skin/hair responds differently.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?

    LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a light source. During treatment an LED facial light is used to produce specific wavelengths of light that are absorbed into your skin. Your skin then uses this light energy as fuel to drive cellular reactions, such as the production of proteins and lipids that are required for building and restoring the skin, or increased intercellular communication and purification. As we age, our metabolism slows down, meaning our cells loose energy, and our body produces less collagen and elastin – the essential ingredients that support and nourish our skin.

    Different colours represent different wavelengths of light. The different wavelengths have unique properties and can therefore be used to target certain skin conditions. For example, the wavelength of light that corresponds to blue light can be used for acne treatments. This is because blue light is absorbed by porphyrins, which are molecules that are produced by P. acnes, the bacteria that causes acne. On absorption, the light creates a chemical change, resulting in free radicals. The free radicals then kill the bacteria from the inside, without harming the skin cells. On the other hand, red light, stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin and thereby improves skin strength.

    On the other hand, red light, stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin and thereby improves skin strength, elasticity and plumpness and also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    BENEFITS OF LED LIGHT THERAPY

    • Kills acne bacteria and facilitates clean, clear skin
    • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
    • Firms and contours the skin
    • Improves colour and texture
    • Improves sun-damaged skin
    • Hydrates and revitalises
    • Improves circulation
    • Helps treat rosacea and calms redness
    • Promotes healing
    OUR MACHINES

    We use the Healite II LED machine which is a medical grade LED to target different concerns for ultimate results. Our settings are matched with your skin concerns, creating a pattern of different lights, to ensure maximum results. Blue light therapy is sterilising and used to eliminate bacteria, excellent for oily and acne prone skin. The yellow light therapy calms and heals the skin, promoting collagen production and encouraging cell renewal. This is perfect for reducing wrinkles, hydrating the skin and helps with overall face firmness. The yellow light therapy is calming, reduces redness, swelling and inflammation. Very beneficial for rosacea and treating sunburn.

    Your beauty therapist will discuss these with you in the consultation process and decide which light would be best suited to your skin, and skin concerns.

    HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

    The number of treatments needed varies with different skin types and conditions.
    Smoother, more hydrated skin with a radiant sheen can be seen even after the first treatment, however we typically recommend a course of 9 treatments, 3 times a week for 3 weeks for optimum results. As with any skin care treatment, maintenance is highly recommended to ensure lasting results. On average, a maintenance treatment is suggested every four to six weeks.

    Add an LED Light Therapy session to your facial or peel treatment for $65. The light will be on the skin for 10-20 minutes depending on the condition being treated.

    Dermaplaning in Auckland

    Dermaplaning / Epidermal Levelling is a safe procedure for gentle, yet controlled exfoliation while also temporarily removing fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, we simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes ridding the top dead skin cell layer and hair, giving a brighter, radiant looking complexion. There is no pain or downtime with Dermaplaning and results are immediate.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
    • Brighter complexion with a more youthful glow
    • Skin will be softer to the touch and smoother in appearance minimising pores, fine lines and wrinkles
    • Active ingredients in skin care products penetrate more deeply improving your results
    • Temporarily removes fine vellus hair
    • No pain – just a light pressure
    • No chemicals, unless you choose to have a peel afterwards for deeper exfoliation targeting concerns
    • Makeup glides on easily, making it the ideal pre-event treatment – we recommend 3 days prior to an event
    • Suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive skins (excluding those with metal allergies)
    • There is no downtime – mild pinkness can be expected for 30-60 minutes
    • Safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women

    Results are immediate and will be seen with each treatment. We recommend Dermaplaning every 4-6 weeks depending on your own hair growth cycle, and treatments can be ongoing.

      Will there be more hair growth and will the hair grow back thicker after the treatment?

      No, dermaplaning does not affect the actual hair follicle. Every individual hair follicle has its own individual DNA, which we are born with. This will determine whether it is vellus (light, thin) or terminal (thicker, darker). Terminal hairs are predetermined, they tend to appear due to hormone changes such as pregnancy, menopause and hormonal imbalances. Some medications can also increase hair growth. Once the hair is cut it has a blunt edge, but this blunt edge does not mean that the hair structure itself has been physiologically altered. So therefore, Dermaplaning does not affect how your hair would regrow. It will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.

      Are there any harsh side effects?

      No, there is no downtime with Dermaplaning. Initially the skin may be slightly pink due to the removal of hair and exfoliation, and increasing circulation of the skin. Some people can get slight faking of the skin after a few days which can be gently exfoliated at day 3-4. Please make sure to keep your skin well nourished and moisturised as recommended by your therapist. Due to the nature of using a blade, there is always the possibility of a small nick which we try our best to avoid, but it can happen from time to time. This is very superficial to the surface, and will disappear within 2-3 days. We also cannot treat those with nickel allergies due to the metal blade and possible reactions.

      What does my treatment entail?

      If you have not been to us for facial treatments before we will do an initial skin consultation to ensure there are no contraindications to the treatment such as allergies to metal and raised lesions. Your treatment starts with a double cleanse to ensure all surface makeup is removed, we follow this with a solution to help further remove any surface oils and remaining makeup to ensure the skin is clean. We then will proceed with your Dermaplaning treatment using a new sterile bladed handle which gently applies pressure as it ‘swipes’ back and forth across the skin on an angle. We will remove fine vellus hair from the full face and neck (if required) with this action. This gives a clean controlled exfoliation to the skin along with removing the fine vellus hair. Once we have completed this we will follow your treatment with a Peptide Sheet Mask which has calming and hydrating properties. SPF is applied after your treatment and recommended for daily use.

      You can be pink after your Dermaplaning for an hour or so, and we recommend not to wear makeup on the day of your treatment to ensure skin is kept clean from bacteria. Possible ‘nicks’ can happen, however we do try our utmost best to avoid this, but due to the nature of the blade it is a possibility which is why we recommend having this treatment a minimum of 3 days prior to an event. If you have not had Dermaplaning before and wish to have it for your wedding, we highly recommend having a trial beforehand.

      At Loft Skin + Beauty we only use high quality, one time use sterile devices. We pride ourselves on both our knowledge and experience but also on our thorough consultations that ensure we have all the necessary information to minimise the risk of complications. At Loft Beauty Boutique you can be sure that your safety is our first priority.

      SkinPen creates controlled micro injuries that stimulate the body’s own natural wound healing response which initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue.

      Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure involving the movement of a pen-like device with an attached sterile, disposable cartridge tip containing small needles over the skin’s surface. The micro needles puncture the skin and create tiny micro injuries that are not visible to the naked eye. These tiny punctures stimulate tissue regeneration through a process called collagen induction therapy (CIT) which improves the appearance of the skin.

      Microneedling assists in the rejuvenation of the epidermal integrity resulting in improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can effectively remodel scar tissue whilst maintaining the overall structure of the skin.

      SkinPen can be used on the face and body and can treat a number of concerns:

       

      • Acne Scarring
      • Fine Lines + Wrinkles
      • Pores
      • Melasma
      • Surgical Scars
      • Skin Texture + Tone

      General Side Effects May Include

      While experiences vary between clients, the following can usually be expected after a SkinPen session:

      • Mild redness + swelling for up to 4 days post treatment
      • Slight discomfort subsiding in 24 hours
      • Mild crusting and scabbing for 2-3 days post treatment
      • Short term skin dryness, tightness, itching and/or tingling sensations
      • Skin Peeling
      • Temporary darkening of skin pigmentation followed by it lightening down.
      • Reactivation of ‘cold sores’ – we recommend taking an anti-viral prior to treatment if you tend to get an outbreak easily.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Q. What Makes Micro Needling So Effective?

      A. The goal of skin rejuvenation is to restore skin back to optimum health. So that skin not only looks younger, but actually behaves younger. To accomplish smooth, plump, firm and evenly pigmented skin you need to target 3 key cells (keratinocytes, melanocytes and fibroblasts) and regulate their function. In doing so, you must also preserve the integrity of the epidermis, which is your skins natural barrier defence.

      Micro needling:

      • Increases cell to cell communication
      • Optimises cell function
      • Preserves the epidermis
      • Strengthens the dermal/epidermal junction
      • Breaks down scar tissue
      • Releases epidermal growth factors (EGF)
      • Increases natural collagen (TGF-Beta 3)
      • Induces regenerative healing
      Q. Who is SkinPen suitable + unsuitable for?

      A. SkinPen is suitable for all skin types and tones. We don’t recommend SkinPen for those with irritated skin, open wounds, bleeding disorders and allergies to stainless steel. Also patients taking medications that contain isotretinoin.

      Q. Do I need to prepare anything before my treatment?

      A. For the best outcome of your treatment we recommend starting a personalised homecare routine before your first treatment, and throughout your skin journey. This prepares your skin for the treatment, and gives the best outcome post treatment. A skincare routine at home consisting of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Growth factors, Hyaluronic acid, Antioxidants and Peptides for use pre-treatment and in-between treatments, are recommended to enhance the treatment to achieve the best results. Your therapist can discuss the best options for your skincare plan.

      Q. Is there any downtime?

      A. Generally most clients will experience pinkness, redness and heat to the area post treatment – similar to sunburn. Heat tends to subside within 1-2 hours and redness tends to reduce within 24-48 hours.

      Q. How many treatments will I need + how often?

      A. In most instances, clients need more than one SkinPen session to achieve their desired outcome. Multiple treatment sessions are recommended depending on the skin concern being targeted. Typically, 3-6 treatments are recommended for the best results. This plan may need to be reviewed over time. We recommend your treatments are spaced between 4-6 weeks which your therapist will advise, and can be intermittently used in conjunction with other treatments. Maintenance treatments are highly recommended following your treatment plan.

      Q. When will I notice results?

      A. Due to the nature of the natural healing process, results will continue to improve in the weeks following your treatment. Optimum results are visible at around 3-6 months post the final treatment session.

      Q. How does it feel?

      A. This varies from person to person, and by the area being treated. During the treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort however it is tolerable and kept to a minimum, with comfort levels checked throughout the treatment. We do not use numbing cream at Loft Skin + Beauty due to possible allergic reactions.

      Q. Can I use my skincare products after the treatment?

      A. You can only use the SkinPen kit after your needling session for up to 4 days post treatment. This is due to the microchannels created during the procedure which may remain open for up to 24 hours and that due to this reason unexpected complications may occur when products not proven safe for use with microneedling are applied.

      The recommended protocol following a SkinPen procedure is as follows:
      SkinFuse Lift HG should be used for 24hrs following the procedure and the use of SkinFuse Rescue Calming Complex may commence 24hrs after the procedure. Societe Peptide Mask used on the night of your treatment. SPF must be applied after 24 hours daily.

      Q. Can I wear makeup after my treatment?

      A. You can resume makeup after 24 hours – mineral is best.

      Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel

      Cosmelan by Mesoestetic is a clinical topical treatment specifically formulated to depigment the skin at surface level by effectively removing and lightening dark patches, resulting in a brighter, smoother and more even complexion. The method consists of an in-clinic treatment application, and a home care routine which is 7 months in duration.

      This treatment reduces freckles, age spots and pigmentation by using a two phased approach. First it deactivates a critical enzyme in the production of melanin and secondly, with at home care to eliminate existing excess pigment deposits.

      Cosmelan is a professional depigmentation method which has an intensive corrective effect on skin hyperpigmentation whilst regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, inhibiting, and controlling the appearance of new dark spots.

      Anyone concerned with pigmentation, melasma, sun damage and hyperpigmentation caused from acne can benefit from Cosmelan. It is safe to be performed at any time of year (must be diligent with SPF), on new or stubborn pigment deposits, all ages and skin colours.

      Cosmelan is considered an intensive treatment and your skin will feel quite tight, dry and could peel for up to a week or possibly longer. Before you take the plunge, make sure you are up to the challenge. If we don’t think you are suitable for this peel, we will tell you at your initial consult and work together to get you ready for the journey.

      Pricing

      Cosmelan Depigmentation Package - $1850

      Description +

      Your pack includes:
      Consultation + skin assessment
      Professional peel application
      Home care pack of 8 products ( 7 of these lasting 3-4 months)
      A post Cosmelan follow up + Healite Facial at day 7
      A second follow up and re-application (if required) 6 weeks post treatment

      Cosmelan Process:

      Step 1:

      Consultation:

      An initial consultation is required to provide education and discuss your options. Your skin therapist will go through medical history to ensure you’re a good candidate for the treatment. You may be required to start on a homecare plan to have your skin prepped for this peel.

      You will be required to pay a deposit for your Cosmelan application booking, which will be performed on separate day from your initial consultation.

      Step 2:

      Professional Treatment in Salon:

      Involves the application of a thick mask (Cosmelan 1) which takes approximately 30 minutes in salon. We suggest you book a morning appointment to give you the time to wash off in the afternoon.

      Once the mask is applied, you will go home with the mask on and leave it on for 8-12 hours depending on your skin type, sensitivity and therapist’s recommendation. You will be given education on home care over the next week which you must follow until you have the follow up appointment in a week’s time.

      Tightness, a slight itching or stinging sensation can be felt, which is to be expected and all normal. After your recommended processing time is elapsed and your mask is ready to be removed at home, just rinse off in the shower with warm water and the cleanser given in your pack.

      We highly recommend you take an anti-histamine on the day of your treatment, and 5-6 days post treatment.

      Your skin will be red and feel tight after the treatment for 3-4 days. Mild to moderate peeling can be experienced for up to one week. It is important to wear sunscreen daily and reduce exposure to sunlight.

      Follow up 1:

      Your follow up appointment will be in a weeks time which includes a Healite LED Facial and you will be given your Cosmelan 2 to continue onto the next phase of your treatment program.

      Homecare:

      Your homecare for the next 3-4 months is included in the treatment plan. Your pack includes a cleanser, toner, recovery mask, serum, amplues, Cosmelan 2, moisturising balm and SPF. Your therapist will give you information on how to use each product. This is critical to the success of the treatment.

      Follow up 2:

      6 weeks from your Cosmelan 1 application treatment we will do a follow up appointment in salon. This is to assess your skin, take after photos and apply the remaining of your Cosmelan 1 product (if required).

       

      Downtime / Aftercare

      Day 1-4: expect red, tight, hot and mildly swollen skin.

      Day 4-5: peeling will start around this time and may last 7-10 days. It is very important NOT to pick, rub or exfoliate the skin. Allow skin to shed naturally. If you pick the skin, you will increase the risk of infection and scarring.

      Results will appear 2-3 weeks post treatment, after the peeling has stopped. You should expect a significant improvement in pigmentation as well as clearer, brighter skin. Your skin will slowly improve over the next few months. Be patient.

      You may have red, sensitive skin for a few months’ post treatment.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Q: What should I do before my Treatment?

      A: A good skincare routine one month prior to starting this treatment is recommended for the best outcome. This ensures your skin’s barrier is in tact, and skin is strong. Vitamin A and C serums are a great start.

      Q. Are there any side effects?

      A. Your therapist will advise you to take anti-histamines for the first 7 days to reduce the inflammatory process, this is a precautionary action only, but we have found this has been worthwhile for clients in the past.

      In the first 12 to 48 hours you may experience some swelling and inflammation. Continue with the post treatment products as directed by your therapist. Your skin will peel after 3 days for approximately 3-5 days. It is important not to pick or rub the dead skin, but let it come off by itself. If it is feeling particularly uncomfortable apply one ampoule and gently massage into the skin as well as your mask (both included in the pack) and leave on.

      Q. What are the rare side effects?

      A. For some clients the inflammatory process can last a bit longer than normal. We still get great results; your skin is just taking a bit longer to get to the next recovery phase. We are there for each step of the process.

      Q. How does Cosmelan work?

      A. Cosmelan inhibits an enzyme called Tyrosinase, responsible for the manufacture of melanin. By slowing the melanin production, dark spots will soon fade.

      Q. What areas can be treated with the Cosmelan Peel?

      A. The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel can be safely used on the entire face, or any other areas such as arms or chest.

      Q. Is a Cosmelan Peel painful?

      A. The Cosmelan Peel is not painful. Patients report a brief stinging sensation immediately as the peel is applied, although this lasts only a few minutes.

      Q. How is the Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel performed?

      A. After the skin is cleaned, the Cosmelan solution will be applied to the face. Patients will remove the mask at home, in approximately 8-12 hours. Over the following several weeks, specific after-care creams will be used on a daily basis.

      Q. How long will a Cosmelan treatment take to perform?

      A. Your treatment booking will take approximately 30 minutes. This is to go through any further questions you may have after your initial Cosmelan Consultation, and to apply the Cosmelan mask.

      Q. What is the aftercare following my Cosmelan treatment?

      A. Immediately after you wash off the Cosmelan 1 mask at home, you may experience side effects such as redness and flaking but these will gradually resolve on their own.

      Peeling effect usually starts about three days following the procedure and is often accompanied with a tight feeling in the skin and itchiness. Application of the home care regimen will help to soothe the skin and is a strict protocol that needs to be followed to ensure the desired results.

      Q. When I can see the treatment results and how long will it last for?

      A. Depending on your initial skin quality, you may see your unwanted pigmentation start to fade away and a brighter skin complexion as soon as one week after the treatment. With continuing use of the home care routine, the pigmentation will continue to fade and will help to prevent the reoccurring of unwanted pigmentation, resulting in maintained results.

      It is imperative to use sunscreen every day. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment to achieve desired results. Our therapists will work closely with you to recommend the required number of treatments to meet your expectations.

      Q: Who can’t have Cosmelan?

      A: 

      • Anyone who is pregnant or planning to get pregnant or breastfeeding.
      • People with allergies to any of the components of the formulations.
      • Those who have recently been on antibiotics, used hydroquione or taken Isotretretinoin in the last 12 months.
      • Any bacterial, viral, fungal or herpes infections in the areas to be treated.
      • Combining it with any chemical peels or hair removal techniques such as IPL or Laser.

      Please note- If you do not use your home care, forget to apply regular sunscreen or regularly expose your skin to the sun, the treatment will not work. We will make you sign a contract agreeing to these terms! (Yes, we take your skin very seriously).

      Many types of pigmentation including melasma and post inflammatory pigmentation are chronic. Peels like Cosmelan can help to reduce pigmentation, but they are not a cure, and will not “treat” the underlying problem.

      The peels remove the majority of superficial pigmentation, but will not remove all of it. Some deep, dermal pigmentation may be inaccessible.
