SKIN LIGHTENING (GLUTHATHIONE DRIPS)

Skin lightening involves the use of anti-oxidants, namely glutathione and vitamin C, that inhibits the production of melanin. Melanin is a type of skin pigment – the more you have, the darker your complexion. Although the melanin content in your skin is decided by your genetic makeup, there are also some factors that can affect the production of melanin, such as: hormones, skin damage, exposure to sunlight, exposure to some chemicals. Glutathione is an antioxidant, prepared like any cosmetic or vitamin product, in a safe, sterile laboratory setting. It can be found in many healthy foods that people eat on a regular basis, some of which are actually considered among the healthiest foods in the world. Glutathione is administered intravenously and is able to deposit throughout the body. This process is gradual, requires maintenance, and may not give you the desired. The positive attributes of this treatment is that it is safe, provided it is carried out by a trained medical professional.

HAIR FILLERS

Multiple Scientific and Clinical studies show that The injectable Hair Filler promotes increased blood circulation to the scalp and hair follicles, Revitalises hair follicles and helps with Hair stem cell proliferation, Induces hair growth by increasing the size of the hair follicle, Prevents hair loss and Maintains hair growth. Use of the Hair filler does not rely on the scalp’s skin needing to absorb the product to be effective. By injecting this innovative Sustained release complex of Peptides into the dermis of the scalp, where the hair follicles lie, places the necessary active ingredients directly into the area of concern, thus increasing efficacy. The area of concern will be assessed by your Doctor and solution and treatment programme discussed with you, as this will depend on severity, size of the area and cause of the hair loss. If necessary, Topical Anaesthetic will be applied to the area of concern, although the procedure is not painful, some minor discomfort may be felt only due to the needle penetrating the dermis. The Hair Filler product will then be injected using a serial technique approx 1cm apart into the dermis of the scalp. Initially, one treatment session every 2 weeks for 2 months is suggested (ie a total of 4 sessions). Thereafter, depending on your Doctor’s suggestion, repeat sessions can be administered as well as maintaining the result for the long term.

LASER LIPOLYSIS

Laser lipo, or laser lipolysis, is a non-invasive procedure that is works using the same concepts as liposuction but is less invasive, less expensive, and less risky. There are no sutures or scarring after laser lipo. Instead the doctor simply attaches two to four paddles and a strap to the area to receive lipolysis. The paddles have a laser light that penetrates into the shallow area of fat and breaks it down. The fat cells “sweat,” or release water, glycerol, and fatty acids that is then absorbed by the body. The patient can aid this process by doing cardiovascular exercise and drinking plenty of water. Most sessions last about 30 minutes, and while many patients receive up to two treatments per week for five weeks, there is no obligation to do so in order to see benefits. Laser lipo’s cost can be fit into the budget of the patient, rather than being a huge expense because of the nature of the procedure.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

The Lymphatic System is known as the body’s waste disposal system. It is responsible for the destruction and elimination of the metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules and foreign substances from the connective tissue. If the pathways become congested, blocked or damaged then fluid and toxins can build up and may create the symptoms of chronic disease. Lymphatic Drainage is used primarily to promote the optimal functioning of the lymphatic system. It relaxes the sympathetic nervous system, reduces pain and enhances the immune system and general well-being. Lymphatic Drainage is a non-invasive deeply relaxing specialized therapy specifically designed for the lymphatic system. It is a gentle rhythmical flowing treatment in which the skin is stretched in the direction of lymph flow. Lymph drainage can enhance recovery from surgery and a wide range of medical / non-medical conditions, by removing toxins and wastes, thus increasing cellular oxygenation and nourishment and boosting immunity.  

Manual Lymphatic Drainage can be used to treat a wide range of medical and non-medical conditions to great effect such as:

  • Surgery – (before all types of non-cancer related surgery, after all types of surgery)
  • Glandular Fever (Epstein Barr Virus)
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Pregnancy – pre- & post-pregnancy, swollen legs, ankles & hands
  • Allergies, Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Rheumatism, Acne & other skin conditions.
  • Hormonal Imbalances (PMS & menopause)
  • Detoxification as part of a detox program

  • Immune Deficiencies (recurring infections: colds, chest, ear etc.)
  • Acute Injuries (fractures, sprains and accident trauma)
  • Wounds & Burns
  • Sinusitis, Puffy Eyes
  • Constipation & other Digestive Disorders

It is also a very successful beauty treatment for the face, improving the appearance of the skin by enhancing texture and reducing puffiness. It helps rejuvenate collagen fibres and slows the ageing process.

SKIN TAG AND WART REMOVAL

Skin tags are common benign soft growths of skin that protrude from the surrounding skin on the body. Skin tags vary widely in their colour and shape. Some are smooth, while others are irregular and bumpy. It can either be fleshed coloured or contain darker pigments. can vary in number from one to hundreds. Males and females are equally prone to developing skin tags. Skin tags are not caused by any virus and are therefore not contagious and therefore cannot be spread by contact. Some people are simply more prone to developing skin tags and may have new growths periodically. Some individuals request periodic removal of tags at annual or even quarterly intervals.

Wart are unsightly and sometimes painful growths that seem to crop up out of nowhere. It is caused by a virus that, when in contact with your skin, causes an infection. Warts are more likely to develop on broken skin because the virus is able to enter the top layer of skin through scratches or cuts. Because it is caused by a virus, it is highly contagious and can therefore be passed through contact of someone’s wart or from coming into contact with surfaces that have touched someone’s wart. It can also be spread from one part of your body to another. Though skin warts can’t be prevented, there are a number of precautionary measures you can take to minimize your risk of acquiring warts. One of the most important things you can do is to wash your hands regularly. Also, try to keep your skin healthy, moisturized, and free of cuts. If you bite your fingernails or cuticles, do your best to stop. Biting nails creates an opening for virus to enter your skin. Be careful to use clean, fresh towels at the gym or in other public locations, and always wear rubber-soled flip-flops or sandals in public locker rooms and showers.

Skin tags and warts will be examined and the best course of treatment will be recommended you for individual needs. There are generally 3 methods of treatment for the removal of skin tags and warts: Surgically removed, Frozen using liquid nitrogen and laser removal.

TATTOO REMOVAL

There are many people who get permanent tattoos inked onto their body’s only to want it removed for whatever reason later down the line. The good news is that laser removal techniques can eliminate your tattoos with minimal side effects o you won’t have to live with it for the rest of your life. Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color. Depending on the size and color of your tattoo, the number of treatments will vary. Your tattoo may be removed in two to four visits, though it may take as many as 10 more sessions. You should schedule a consultation, during which time your doctor will evaluate your personal situation and advise you on the process. Treatment with the laser varies from patient to patient depending on the age, size, and whether the tattoo was created by an amateur or a professional. The color of the patient’s skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo pigment extends, will also affect the removal technique. Thanks to newer technology, laser tattoo removal has become much more effective with very little risk of scarring, because of it’s unique ability to selectively treat pigment involved in the tattoo. At Beauty and Curves, our doctors will treat your individual case with the greatest of care and explain all you need to know about the required treatment.

Venus treatments are a suite of sought-after medical aesthetics treatments by Venus Concept, a leader in the non-invasive medical aesthetics industry. The treatments consist of the following:

VENUS FREEZE

Venus Freeze™ is a quick, non-invasive treatment that is highly effective in reducing circumference, improving cellulite, tightening skin, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Freeze™ uses Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which provide you with the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients, and blood to the skin, giving it an immediate, long-lasting glow. Venus Freeze™ treatments are non-invasive and painless, with many patients comparing the experience to a relaxing hot stone massage! As you lay comfortably on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a gel to the skin that helps the applicator glide more easily. After selecting the correct size applicator, the treatment provider will begin to apply smooth and consistent movements on the surface of the skin. It’s actually so comfortable that patients are encouraged to close their eyes and just relax. Each treatment can take anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the area. You may see a slight pinkness on the skin afterward, but it should dissipate within an hour or so. You can expect to see results as the treatments progress – a minimum of six treatments is usually recommended for the face, and eight for other parts of the body. The number of treatment sessions typically depends on the area being treated; however, it is not uncommon for patients to see continuing improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.

VENUS SWAN

The Venus Swan™ is the “go-to” treatment for skin tightening as well as providing light contouring for the face, neck and body with no discomfort or down-time. Venus Swan utilizes multi-polar radio frequency which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes the skin to contract, achieving tighter skin, softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite. Treatments take approximately 30 to 40 minutes depending on the area, you can expect to see results as the treatments progress, a minimum of 6 treatments for the face, 8 on the neck and 10 on the body.

VENUS LEGACY

Venus Legacy™ is your best option for combating stubborn fat areas and cellulite.  Venus Legacy™ combines Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. The radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form, along with the increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibers. What really sets Venus Legacy™ apart from other devices is the advanced VariPulse™ technology, an adjustable pulsed suction feature that gently pulls the skin upward. This allows for the energy to penetrate even deeper into the skin to further stimulate healthy circulation and lymphatic drainage. The number of treatment sessions needed to see optimal results usually depends on the area being treated—a minimum of six treatments is usually recommended for the face, with eight for the neck and other parts of the body. That being said, it is not uncommon for patients to see continuing improvement in their skin up to three months after the series of treatments is complete.

 VENUS VIVA

Venus Viva™ works to improve the overall texture of your skin by addressing a wide range of common concerns, including wrinkles, discoloration, acne scarring, and stretch marks. What makes the Venus Viva™ truly unique is its ability to cover a greater surface area and treat multiple issues in the same session. Plus, it’s 100% safe—Radio Frequency has been used in modern medicine for many, many years because it’s proven to be safe and effective. Venus VivaTM treatments combine NanoFractionalTM Radio Frequency with our one-of-a-kind SmartScanTM technology to safely deliver reparative heat to deeper layers of your skin without causing harm to any of the surrounding tissue. This process activates the body’s ability to naturally rebuild and regenerate collagen. As a result, imperfections like wrinkles and scars are smoothed out while discoloration is corrected for a more even skin tone. Venus Viva™ offers immediate, long-lasting results in as little as one 15-minute treatment. For a more comprehensive program, you might schedule 3 or 4 sessions. Since there’s minimal downtime and discomfort with a mild topical anesthesia, most patients are able to carry on with the rest of their day as usual immediately following their procedure. Patients may experience a little bit of redness lasting 2 to 5 days at the most, but makeup may be applied the day after treatment.
