Hydro Superfacial Precare, Aftercare & Consent
Precare, Aftercare & Consent
Hydropeel is used to dissolve keratin and deep cleanse pores to remove blackheads and smooth the skins texture.
Medik8 Enzyme Peel is a specially chosen blend of eight active ingredients was selected for their potency and simultaneous gentle mechanisms of action. Unlike traditional chemical peels that induce skin peeling in order to reveal new and unblemished skin underneath, the Superfacial™ Peel contains papain, a naturally derived enzyme that ‘digests’ the superficial dead skin cells that can lead to the appearance of a dull complexion. The enzymatic action ensures that the skin is left radiant, with no peeling and minimal erythema, guaranteeing minimum downtime.
Dermalux LED Therapy is a popular non invasive skin treatment for acne, sun damage, wounds, and other skin problems.
The treatment uses varying wavelengths of light to trigger the skin’s natural healing processes to repair the skin. Several treatments are necessary to see results.
LED is safe, non-thermal, nontoxic and non-invasive, and to date no side effects have been reported in published literature. In the 20 years that LED has been used in the medical and beauty industry, there have been no reported incidents of adverse reactions or damage caused by LED therapy.
