Laser Genesis: Taking Light Years Off

We are constantly looking for the quickest way to achieve radiant skin and usually go to great lengths to hide our imperfections from our peers.

Luckily, we can easily dupe others into believing we were blessed with ‘good genes” with the help of non-ablative lasers.

“LG” or Laser Genesis is the most popular laser facial at Face Plus Medispa, and with good reason!

It is not painful, does not require any topical numbing agents, and has no down time! It is a non-ablative laser which means unlike ablative lasers it leaves your epidermis intact.

The laser energy gently heats the upper layers of the dermis; diffusing micro dilated capillaries, reducing redness and flushing associated with rosacea, stimulates collagen, reduces excess oil flow and improves microcirculation.

This is the perfect lunch time treatment to return a healthy glow to tired skin as your expected treatment time is usually 45 minutes to an hour to treat a full face.

Laser Genesis involves delivering heat gradually, allowing the heat to intensify to create the illusion of a wound without the physical trauma. In a sense, it tricks the body into a healing process by delivering the correct amount of heat and this is where all the magic happens for your skin.

After a few treatments you can expect to see reduced pore size, minimized appearance of most scars and a smoother texture, to give the skin a lustrous appearance.

Treatments are best a month apart and 3-6 treatments is ideal for optimal and effective results. After that an annual top up is ideal for maintenance.

Kendall Jenner, one of the younger Kardashian sisters recently credited her skin to regular Laser Genesis treatments, allowing her to keep her acne breakouts at bay and lighten existing scars.

LG very much represents the new way of thinking ‘face’. No longer do we think that we can improve the face and skin by damaging it. That ‘ablative’ view of lasers went out of fashion in the 90s and naughties, replaced by a caring and nurturing attitude to your precious skin.

Our experienced, gentle and precise staff will tailor the ideal treatment plan for you and your skin needs, based around this amazing laser technology.

However we do advise a consultation prior to treatment as this will be paramount in deciding if this treatment is suitable for your specific skin condition. We advise special precautions to the following prior to your clinical evaluation;

  • Avoid excessive sun exposure or fake tanning for two to four weeks prior.
  • Avoid topical agents known to cause irritation (strong exfoliants or peels, steroid creams, waxing), two weeks prior.
  • Consider taking natural supplements or antiviral medication for prevention if you are prone to cold sores and the area to be treated is near or on that area affected.
  • Males are to ensure they are cleanly shaved as the laser may burn hair or increase heat on that area.
  • Advise your therapist if you are currently undergoing/or have undergone, antibiotics,  isotretinoin treatment or with drugs in a similar class within the last six months.
  • Cosmetic tattoos will also need to be avoided and if necessary covered during this procedure.

At Face Plus Medispa we often team LG with other treatments such as; our bespoke facial treatments, cosmeceutical and exclusive product range, and or other health and wellness treatments such as massage, acupuncture, IV therapies and a selection of injectable treatments from our expert nurses and doctors.

From now until the 10th of August 2019 we are offering a 4 for the price of 3 treatments for Laser Genesis. Click here for more information.

Escaglow: Snails in Skincare

Increasing collagen and elastin and restoring radiance – Super Snails indeed! The Escaglow Facial is now available exclusively at Face Plus!

We could not be more excited to announce that the EscaGlow Facial is now available across all three of our clinics!

This amazing treatment incorporates Dermapen with Tensage Intensive Serum 40: promoting intensive skin repair and healing. At the same time as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, it enhances skin tone and contains growth factor benefits.

Tensage Intensive Serum 40 is the only physician-dispensed skincare line that utilises the secretion and eggs from snails. Who could ever have imagined that this seemingly unremarkable little gastropoda is in reality quite remarkable! The snail in the spotlight is the Cryptomphalus aspersa snail from Santander, Spain. Their ancestors date back to the Precambrian period where life was only possible in the sea!

500 million years later these little guys are nourished in a sanctuary with a diet of carrots and lettuce to produce a secretion with a clinically proven healing power that stimulates the human body’s own stem cells to form new, healthy skin cells.

It was originally shown to be effective in treating humans with cases of radiation dermatitis following the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. After this discovery scientists began harnessing the secretion for skincare benefits.

The secretion is safely collected in a non-harmful, patented process by placing the snails in a gently rotating vehicle to stimulate the excretion process. Afterwards snails are returned to their sanctuary for several weeks.

The eggs are very carefully collected from the sanctuary then rinsed and refined to produce the CellPro technology which is clinically proven to help rejuvenate skin and reverse the visible signs of photo-

The EscaGlow Facial exclusive to Face Plus Medispa is a results driven treatment that incorporates the luxurious touches that our clients have come to expect from our dermal therapists. 

It incorporates Dermapen, application of the Serum 40 as well as a relaxing head and shoulder massage whilst the cooling mask is on. Our clients also take home a daily repair kit that supports the treatment and enhances skin rejuvenation and increased collagen production.

With little to no downtime and optimal results after just 3 to 6 treatments we are all falling in love with the Cryptomphalus aspersa!
We are running an introductory promotion until the 30th of June, 2019. Click here for more information.
