SKIN TREATMENTS

 

We all know how hard it can be to find the perfect treatment for your skin, bearing in mind your budget and lifestyle. We are here to help tackle the confusion this can bring with the many different treatments on the market. Whether you’re looking for a new facial regime or just your one off facial to give your skin a boost we have you covered. At Glam R Us we used targeted skin treatments that will correct any issues you may be having with your skin. This ranges from laser facials all the way to microdermabrasion facials as well as everything in between.

 

Skin needling.

Skin needling can often sound and look quite confronting but it was one of the most effective rejuvenation and healing skin treatments you could ask for. Skin needling consists of tiny surgical grade needles penetrating the skin at different levels to create what we call micro channels and microtraumas in the skins surface. By creating these channels It allows your skincare to better penetrate the skin for a more effective result.

The microtraumas to the skin also encourages the production of collagen and elastin, creating a firmer, tighter looking skin, and encourages skin cells to turn over faster for more youthful skin.

Skin needling is a quick process and a four week interval between treatments is recommended to allow the skin to heal to its greatest potential. We recommend keeping the skin clean and free of makeup for at least two days after treatments as well as staying away from any active ingredients in your skin care. E.G retinol, vitamin C. Skin needling is priced at $199 per session.

 

Micro dermabrasion.

Unlike skin needling, microdermabrasion is a less invasive facial treatment that exfoliates the surface of the skin as well helping to brighten the skin, reduce age spots and minimise texture. Microdermabrasion involves using lightly abrasive diamond tip heads to remove bult up dead skin, creating a brighter, fresher skin. We recommend a minimum interval of 2 weeks. There’s no downtime with this facial, you may be a little red for a few hours, feel a little tight and slightly dry but you are able to return to your normal skincare and makeup routine the same day! At $69 this facial is a cost effective way to treat yourself to new skin!

 

Carbon facials

Carbon facials are a rejuvenating and detoxing facial, great for anyone looking for a instant glow. Also known as a Hollywood facial or the party facial, this treatment creates a smooth and glowy skin instantly! We use a detoxifying charcoal mask over the skin which is then lasered of to draw out imperfections and remove dead skin. The laser penetrates below the surface level of the skin to rejuvenate and speed up cell turnover. This facial is amazing for anyone suffering with Acne, Acne scarring, dehydrated or aging skin. With no downtime, you are able to immediately pop your makeup on and head out for the night! Carbon facials are priced at $199. With a course of treatments you can see long term results giving you the skin you’ve been chasing!

 

Chemical peels.

We offer a range of chemical peels here at Glam R Us ranging from our peel accelerator, ageless peel and the AHA peel:

Peel accelerator

The peel accelerator brightens, renews and smooths the skins surface. This peel is especially beneficial to anyone who may be acne prone, or have any acne symptoms as well as anyone with mild pigmentation. All peels have a downtime, involving minimal to slight peeling for a few days after treatment. With many powerful ingredients the peel accelerator uses a mixture of Lactic, glycolic and L-mandelic acids to boost the skins natural luminosity. Vitamin B and Kakadu plum are used to strengthen the skins natural immune defence to give optimal results. We recommend a course of 6 peels, one every 2-4 weeks and is $60 per session.

 

 

 

AHA enzyme peel

The AHA enzyme peel is a much more gentle option for sensitive skin types. A gentle micro exfoliation while soothing and hydrating at the same time. With no downtime this peels is perfect for anyone looking for renewed and rejuvenated skin. Using papain enzymes to gently polish the skin while Vitamin B helps to strengthen the skins natural immune system. Chamomile, vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid are used to soothe and hydrate the skin simultaneously. Recommendation is a course of 6 one every 2-4 weeks for $60

 

Ageless peel

The ageless peel is one of the stronger peels we offer, concentrating on anti aging and skin revitalising. This peel is good for most skin types but is targeted towards prematurely ageing skin and sun damaged skin. The downtime with this peel is minimal and you may see some slight peeling after your treatment. The ageless peel is formulated with a cosmeceutical Grade Vitamin A with an exfoliating AHA blend as well as an amino acid, ceramide complex to retexturize skin. Marine collagen is used to smooth and soften the skin. This peel works deep into the skin layers to normalise cell production and encourage smoother, more even and revitalised complexion. This peel is recommended every 4 weeks, at $99 per session

 

IPL

IPL is a laser treatment used to reduce pigmentation on the skins surface as well as helping to improve acne prone skin. Intense pulsed therapy (IPL) also known as the photofacial uses light energy to target unwanted pigmentation on the skin. When the skin is heated  your body gets rid of unwanted cells. When used for acne prone skin the LED light used in IPL helps to eliminate acne causing bacteria from within the skin.

With minimal downtime, the skin may seem red and dry for a short while after treatment.

 

RF Skin Tightening

Radio frequency skin tightening is a non-surgical way to lift and tighten the skin. This treatment involves sending heat waves through the layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen cells.

RF involves placing a conductive gel over the skin and placing our RF laser onto the treatment area. This is a pain free treatment, targeting many areas of the body. This treatment is great for anyone looking to tighten and firm the skin while maintaining your skins natural balance. We recommend a course of 3 treatments with a 3 week interval in between. From then you should only need maintenance appointments every few months. RF is a cost effective treatment great for any skin type and a great alternative to injectables.
