It’s so important to start a skincare regime early, as how you care for your skin today will leave an everlasting impression….. and with today’s technology, acne and skin concerns of teenagers can be a thing of the past!

We believe that educating and treating skin while teenages are going through hormonal changes can prevent future damage, scarring and ageing.
Below are some options for teenage skin. Each treatment will focus on education as much as the actual treatment, so you can walk away with the knowledge of how to look after your/your teenager’s skin at home.
Customised Deep Cleansing Facial – $85
Blemishes ? Clogged Complexion? Shiny skin? This treatment is perfect for you!
After an individual Visia skin analysis (as above), your therapist will discuss which ingredients your skin needs the most, so you can make an educated decision on which products to use. Your skin will then be deeply cleansed, exfoliated and superbly hydrated, unclogging any blogged pores and removing any build up of dead cells leaving your skin to look thoroughly fresh, balanced and revitalised.
Omnilux LED Light Therapy treatments for congested, acne prone skin.In a recent study of 30 subjects, (skin types I-IV, all with mild to moderate acne vulgaris) every subject had a significantly successful treatment response. There was an optimum reduction in inflammatory lesions of 73% 4 to 8 weeks post treatment.
If your teenage skin is showing signs of bacterial infection and acne, we recommend a course of Omnilux Light Therapy treatments . Omnilux is clinically proven to achieve the best results when done in a course of two treatments a week, using both the blue and red Omnilux lights as outlined below. Your Therapist will recommend which course best suits your skin.
How does it work? – One of the key bacteria responsible for the inflammation is Propionibacterium acnes or P.acnes. These bacteria produce natural chemicals called poryphyrins, which are sensitive to light at different wavelengths. If stimulated, these chemicals will neutralise the bacteria and with no bacteria present inflammation will subside.
Omnilux blueTM stimulates these chemicals and so eradicates the bacteria that cause the redness or inflammation of acne. This is combined with Omnilux reviveTM which has anti inflammatory properties, this helps to minimise the redness of acne lesions and promotes healthier skin.
Omnilux treatments are totally non-invasive and generate no heat. The treatment does not damage normal tissue and works with the body’s own natural processes to rejuvenate the skin.
