1. Microdermabrasion

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a process that deeply exfoliates, polishes, and increases the lymphatic drainage of skin. It uses a gentle vacuum to bring your skin in contact with a diamond coated head that gently abrades the top layer of dead skin. It can be used to help treat various skin conditions such as acne, comedones (blackheads), and dull or rough skin. It is most commonly used on the face, but can be used on the neck, back, and hands. Microdermabrasion takes around 60 minutes and usually a few sessions are required for optimal results. Slight redness may occur after Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective procedure.

What does Microdermabrasion involve?

Generally, a session of Microdermabrasion of the face takes approximately 60 minutes. It is not painful and it may feel like you are having a facial. 

Prior to Microdermabrasion, your face is thoroughly cleansed. The Microdermabrasion head is then systematically passed over the face multiple times. Particular mask or serums are put on your face after the procedure has been completed. After Microdermabrasion, your skin may appear red and this usually persists for a short time only and you will notice that your skin feels soft and smooth afterwards.
We recommend 6 sessions at fortnightly to monthly intervals to achieve the best results. Ultimately, the number and frequency of Microdermabrasion will depend on the skin type of the patient was well as their needs. 

Is microdermabrasion safe?

Microdermabrasion is a very safe and gentle process. There are very few risks to Microdermabrasion. You may experience some transient redness of the treated areas.
  
Microdermabrasion is chemical-free and is suitable* for all skin types and for pregnant women.

* Note: Microdermabrasion is not suitable for patients who have taken the medication Accutane (Isotretinion) in the past 12 months.

 

2. LINFOGEI

What does the Lymphatic system do?

The Lymphatic system is our front line of defense in fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.
The Lymph system is a major part of the immune system. It is a complex network of tissues, capillaries & Lymph vessels that produce & transport Lymph fluid around the body. Whilst the Lymphatic system contains twice as much liquid as the blood vessels, it lacks a pump, such as a heart to carry waste from the Lymph glands out of the body.

Even the healthiest and most active people can get partially blocked and sluggish Lymphatic systems.

When toxins accumulate in the Lymph system the body becomes sluggish & possibly sick (sometimes without the person even realizing) and clogged lymph nodes become lymph lumps, more commonly known as cellulite.


The remarkable electro lymphatic drainage treatment from Italia, call LINFOGEI is up to 12 times more effective than manual Lymph massage as it heals at a deeper level without applying any pressure to the skin

Benefits of LINFOGEI


There are many physical signs of congestion in the Lymphatic System that can benefit significantly by improving Lymph circulation. Some of these include:

  • Water Retention, particularly in ankles or fingers, indicating fluid congestion
  • General muscle aches and pains or a stiff neck, often as a result of sprains or whiplash
  • Cellulite and weight problems
  • Breathing problems, such as asthma or sinusitis
  • Breast lumpiness
  • Post surgery tissue congestion, scar formation or stretch marks
  • Acne skin problems
  • Stress, headaches and migraines
  • Immune system problems
  • Body detoxification

However even the healthiest person will benefit from LINFOGEI
The number of treatments required will vary depending on the severity of the condition. In more severe cases, it is recommended to have treatments 2-3 times a week, reducing down to once a month. Treatment times will also vary, an average session will normally take 30-40 minutes.

LINFOEI can reach areas that manual massage cannot reach. The major components of the lymphatic system occur in areas protected by bony structure, such as the upper chest area. It vibrates and stimulates the lymph nodes under the bone structure, which cannot be achieved manually.

LINFOGEI stimulates the Lymph without putting pressure on the muscles.

LINFOGEI can generate quicker results than manual massage because we provide immediate blockage relief in the key Lymph nodes. If these nodes are blocked, then the Lymph will not drain away properly. For many conditions, LINFOGEI will achieve as much in one session as in several manual massage sessions
