The Melrose Aesthetic Centre offers a range of treatments and products aimed at repairing sun damaged and pigmented skin and restoring a youthful, even, brighter complexion.
Laser – Broad Band Light (BBL™)
The light energy delivered by the Sciton Profile BBL™ will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen. This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colours and making it smoother, more vibrant and younger looking.
Micro Laser Peels
A Micro Laser Peel is a gentle, laser assisted skin peel, which precisely removes the skin’s outermost layer to a predetermined depth. It is the perfect step between Microdermabrasion and deeper peels for treating pigmentation, sun damage and Melasma. Typically two to four treatments are required spaced at intervals over eight weeks, depending on the extent of treatment required.
The peeling treatment renews the skin by lifting dead cells off the skin surface and stimulating the metabolism of the cells underneath.
It utilizes a combination of Trichloracetic acid (TCA) and Jessner’s solution (14% resorcinol, 14% lactic and 14% salicylic acid in an alcohol base).
Profractional Laser Treatment
Fractional, non-ablative laser the treatment of surgical scars, acne scars and stretch marks – the only FDA cleared laser for this treatment. The damaged areas stimulate the body’s natural healing process, and promote production of new collagen and fresh skin cells, greatly improving uneven pigmented areas…
Penetrating several layers of skin, using a solution called Phenol, this treatment is extremely effective for regeneration of the skin structure. It provides a total rejuvenation effect, which can help you to look up to ten years younger.
The procedure helps to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, and it normally takes about 10-14 days to recover from the treatment.
The Sciton™ CONTOUR™ system emits short pulses of high energy light, which gets absorbed by the water and chromophores in the skin. The light becomes heat, and that heat removes thin layers of your skin’s surface, which will be replaced by younger skin growth. Only the Sciton™ CONTOUR™ has the ability to provide a treatment that is optimised to your skin condition.
