Microdermabrasion
To reduce congestion & blemishes

Simple & safe, microdermabrasion exfoliates deep to help reduce congestion and blemishes. This is a good first step in the treatment of acne and is often used in conjunction with LED light therapy for enhanced results.

Treatment includes deep cleanse, diamond tip microdermabrasion, mask, moisturiser and sun protection.

 

LED Light Therapy
Targets acne causing bacteria

LED treatment produces a light that deeply penetrates the dermis without damaging the skin.  Our blue LED facial targets acne by increasing oxygen levels in the skin.  This inturn, destroys the bacteria in the epidermis that causes acne.

Treatments are tailored to suit the skin condition, but generally include cleanse, LED therapy and moisturiser.  LED facials are often combined with other treatments such as microdermabrasion <link> for even better results.

Dermagen’s  range of Aspect and ASAP medical peels use organic acids to remove built up dead cells and encourage regeneration of the skin.

Our treatments are clinically and medically based, are delivered by experienced, paramedical therapists and are used to treat a number of different skin concerns & conditions.

Our  peels detox the skin, by flushing out toxins, reducing inflammation & congestion, targeting infection and increasing oxygenated blood flow. These treatments are ideal for mild acne and all skin types.

Medical peels are tailored to suit individual needs and typically cause no downtime.

 

Photodynamic Therapy
For the treatment of serve acne

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that is now used worldwide. It uses a light-sensitive solution (ALA activator) which is applied to the affected skin.  The skin is then exposed to a specialised light source leading to the destruction of the damaged skin cells.

Photodynamic therapy can safely clear multiple cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions from a large area of skin in a single treatment session. More than one treatment may be required in some cases of severe sun damage or more advanced skin lesions.  PDT is also an effective treatment for acne.

Specalised treatment for acne and acne scarring

Photodynamic therapy combines a substance called Amino Levulanic Acid (ALA) with blue and/or red LED light therapy.

This therapy targets the effected areas only without damaging normal skin.  The pairing of ALA with the LED lights reduces the activity of sebaceous glands thereby reducing the skin’s oiliness.

Treatments are tailored to suit individual cases with the treatment time and recovery period varying according to the level of treatment.

 

Skin Needling
Reduce Acne scaring

Skin needling uses a medical grade needling device that creates thousands of microscopic punctures in the skin.  This is a natural treatment that improves skin texture, reduces wrinkles & fine lines, softens scars.

Skin needling is an ideal treatment for acne scarring.  A medical grade needling device creates thousands of microscopic punctures in the skin.  As these punctures heal, collagen production increases, skin texture improves leading to a substantial reduction in depressed acne scaring.
