Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation Facial

This new, revolutionary Carbon Peel Laser Skin Rejuvenation in Southampton treatment shrinks pores, reduces the appearance of fine lines and imperfections and makes your skin look and feel firmer. The treatment produces great anti-ageing effects on the face, neck, chest and hands.

This Treatment Provides Several Benefits:
Cleansing:

Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking any absorbed material with it.



Exfoliating:

As the carbon is targeted by the laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer, more radiant skin.

The heat produced by carbon peels has 2 additional benefits. It reduces the P.A bacteria responsible for acne, reduces pore size giving a more even skin tone.

Rejuvenating:

Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling tight and glowing.

Acne and Oil Destroying:

Allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks sebaceous glands (oil producing glands), resulting in less oil production, and therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores. Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.

As with all skin treatments, carbon peels should be supplemented by a good skin-care routine, and daily use of a high-spectrum sunscreen. Noticeable results can be experienced after a single treatment, but for maximum long-term results we recommend regular treatments.



How Does Laser Carbon Skin Rejuvenation Work?

The laser treatment is suitable for all ages and can lighten age spots and dark spots, fade freckles, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, shrink pores, and remove blackheads and acne. It can also lift and tighten the skin, improve elasticity, moisturise and give a bright and radiant complexion.

The principle behind the black doll treatment is that carbon powder possesses a strong capacity to absorb dirt deep in the pores. The face (and neck) is first coated with carbon nano-particles. Next the laser is used on the skin. The medical-graded laser allows the particles to penetrate deep into pores, shattering the epidermal keratinocytes and dirt. The heat from the laser also enables the carbon powder to be absorbed into the skin, stimulating the skin cells. Regeneration occurs by encouraging growth of collagen and elastic fibres.

The Process

After cleansing Carbon Paste is massaged into face, then high intensity pulses of light are delivered from the laser which destroys debris clogged in the pores. This state of the art laser treatment helps refine enlarged pores which reduce oil secretion and helps remove blackheads and whiteheads. The treatment stimulates the face to produce more collagen which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Aftercare

It is advised that you use a sun protection cream after treatment with a minimum SP30. A course of 6 sessions is recommended for maximum results and discounts are available for courses.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Clean & Clinical Environment For Safe Removal
Skintastic Aesthetic removal is your first step to providing safe and effective laser tattoo removal using the most up to date NU TATOUAGE laser made by the British Institute of lasers. We can treat black, blue, red and green ink tattoos using the Q-Switch System. Unlike salon machines which can only reduce tattoos our medical laser is powerful enough to fully remove them.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO REMOVE A TATTOO?
The number of treatments required depends on the size of your tattoo, the quality of the inks used by the tattooist and the depth at which he placed the ink in your skin. Most tattoos take between 6-10 treatments, but some can take longer for complete removal. The sessions will be spaced approx 6 weeks apart for the best results. If you are looking for a fade down of the tattoo as you are having a cover up in its place we normally recommend four sessions.

WILL I HAVE A SCAR?
No. When using the q-switched Nd:Yag laser and following the "aftercare instructions" provided, there is minimal to no scarring, from this procedure. However, in rare cases, those with scarring disorders, such as keloids, have an increased risk of forming a scar.

HOW DOES THE ND YAG LASER WORK TO REMOVE THE INK?
The laser emits a pulse of light that is preferentially absorbed into certain colours of ink. The light enters the skin at a speed that is too fast to heat the tissues (billionths of a second), instead, it produces a 'shock wave' effect and breaks up the ink particles into smaller pieces, the body then recognises these particles as something that shouldn't be there and attacks it. The particles are then removed naturally via the body's own elimination system.





DOES LASER TATTOO REMOVAL HURT?
If you are thinking about laser tattoo removal, your most burning questions may be "Does it hurt?! and 'How much does it hurt?' Tattoo removal causes a certain amount of physical pain and irritation to the area being treated but it is not the same for everyone.

Laser tattoo removal has been likened by some clients to the feeling of having a rubber band snapped on your skin. Others describe it as a rapid succession of pricks. While some say it feels like someone scratching sunburn. Tattoo removal treatments on areas with more fat like the arms and buttocks are generally not as painful as areas where there is less fat or close to a bone like the neck, ankle or finger.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS AFTER TREATMENT?

Redness and swelling may occur, similar to sunburn. This settles within a few days. Some patients may blister, which is quite normal and does not indicate potential scarring. Please refer to the aftercare advice sheet.

The treated area should not be exposed to strong sunlight between sessions without the use of sunblock (SPF 30).

Instant inch & weight loss treatment

FAQ'S
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?

We recommend you have a minimum of 6 and maximum of 12 treatments before having a break of 4 weeks to allow your body to recover

Only one area of the body can be treated per day so that the body can eliminate the fat

A 7 day gap must be left between treatments on the same area and a 72 hour gap before treatment on another area

IS THE NON SURGICAL CAVITATION AND LIPO TREATMENT PAINFUL?
No. This treatment is painless. In fact, it is very relaxing! During the 4K Ultrasound clients may experience a brief high pitched ringing in the ear during the ultrasound and then a warming feeling when the radio frequency is in action, so it is certainly not uncomfortable.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

The non surgical lipo and cavitation treatment is a very effective procedure and the majority of clients experience noticeable circumference reduction after a single session with increasing results after each visit. The results may vary with different tissue structure, treatment area, age, metabolism, medications, and changes in hormones. Proper diet and increased physical activity will certainly improve and help to maintain the results.

DO I NEED TO FOLLOW ANY GUIDELINES BEFORE OR AFTER MY TREATMENT?

Try to avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment. This includes tanning (natural or artificial). It would be more likely to suffer pain from the addition of heat to the already damaged skin; however an established tan would be fine.
Do not have hot shower, bath or sauna right after the Ultrasound treatment
Drink at least three litres of water after treatment this will help to improve your metabolism and increase urine output - lipid metabolites release out of your body.
For best results you should refrain from any alcohol consumption for 48 hours after the treatment. Alcohol consumption during this period may prevent your liver from removing the deactivated fat cells from your body (as the liver will assign priority to removing the alcohol from your blood).

Double Chin Sculpting

Additional Information
Radiofrequency (RF) double chin reductions is one of the most popular, non-invasive fat loss procedures available at Skintastic Aesthetic Clinic. Its popularity stems from its ability to make notable reductions to stubborn double chins. Radiofrequency treatments are quick, painless and require no time, not to mention being far more affordable than your average fat loss procedure.

The procedure isn't just about losing fat either; the radio-frequency fat-melting treatment can also boost the production of collagen in the skin, reducing cellulite and making the skin look and feel firmer

HOW DOES RADIO FREQUENCY MELT FAT?

Radiofrequency delivers a safe electrical current to the treated area via the electrodes on the 4K Cavitation Lipo machine. The RF heats the area and deeply penetrates the skin. Our brain interprets the RF as a source of energy as the skin reacts like a resistor, heating the cells within a safe range and in doing so causing the skin to tighten, making it smoother and reducing cellulite.



IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?

Our Radiofrequency fat-melting treatment is safe and relaxing. Prior to your treatment we will assess your requirements and discuss your goals. Once we're ready to start, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the warmth generated from the RF applicator. The procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes

WHAT IS THE PRE TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS & AFTERCARE?

We recommend that you do not sunbathe or using a tanning bed in the week preceding your radiofrequency treatment as this can cause some irritation to the skin. Some mild soreness is possible but uncommon, and we advise that you use aloe vera on the area if irritation occurs.

We also recommend that you drink plenty of water in the days following your treatment as it assists collagen reproduction.

Combined Treatments For Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite Reduction/Removal
Our high definition Anti Cellulite Reduction Treatment in Southampton uses a cosmetic vacuum in tandem with radio frequencies to actively combat unwanted cellulite. The cellulite treatment is used to improve blood and lymphatic circulation throughout the body, help decrease discomfort from oedema (water retention) and improve skin elasticity.

Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment is a new and promising technology for non-surgical body contouring, fat and cellulite reduction. Pure RF energy combined with infrared, tissue mobilisation and suction) can be used in treatments to effectively contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat. With deep, controlled heating of the fatty layers under the skin, the effects of tissue tightening and increased blood circulation mean that fatty deposits are drained through the lymphatic system, reducing the appearance of cellulite. Based on current RF technologies, most people should see at least a mild improvement in their skin tone, with a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite and possible inch loss, with minimal risks and downtime.

FAQ'S
My legs are in pretty good shape but it's the cellulite that makes me self-conscious in shorts. What do you recommend?

A dimpled appearance in the skin caused by cellulite is a common complaint from our female clients especially on the thighs, buttocks and upper arms. Cellulite can be safely and effectively treated using the combined RF treatment programme.

Treatment - what to expect?

During the cellulite treatment, your laser technician will apply the treatment tip to your skin, precisely heating the skin's inner layer (dermis), while its out layer (epidermis) is continually cooled. Depending on the size of the treated area, treatment may take from about 30-75 minutes. You should see a gradual improvement.

Following treatment, you can immediately resume all routine activities. You may notice slight temporary redness, which should disappear in less than 24 hours. While the procedure has shown to be safe, effective and long-lasting, maintenance treatments may extend and improve upon results.

How does Radio Frequency Assist in Cellulite Reduction?

Radio Frequency is successful in cellulite and fat reduction as it improves blood flow to the treated area which therefore promotes the breakdown of fat cells, aiding in the reabsorption and drainage of fatty deposits and retained fluids.

What should I know First?

To maximise the effects of your treatment please ensure that you: Drink 2 liters of filtered or spring water before and after each treatment. (Not soda or carbonated water). Follow a Low GI diet- protein with every meal. Exercise for at least half an hour following each treatment (preferably within 6 hours of the treatment) to stimulate lymphatic activity and follow a suitable daily exercise plan. Skin brush daily before showering in between treatments. No alcohol for at least 72 hours after treatment.

When will I see results?

Most clients will see results immediately after their first treatment, and the best results will be after 3 days of having the treatment, but we do highly recommend having at least 6 treatments to maximise results and get the longevity out of the procedure.

Laser Pigmentation Removal

Skin pigmentation marks are a build up of melanocytes (cells containing melanin) under the skin typically referred to as freckles and age spots on the hands, face and body areas. Different types of laser can be used depending on the type of pigmentation. If pigmentation is in superficial lesions, then the Q-Switch Laser Pigmentation Removal treatment is effective in removing pigmentation in as little as 1-3 treatments. The treatment will also depend on the area being treated, the type of pigmentation, and level of recovery time. Laser treatment is one of the most advanced treatments for removing unwanted pigmentation on the skin such as age spots, sun spots, and freckles.

Micro Needling & Derma Roller Treatments in Southampton

What is Dermaroller?
This is a treatment that stimulates skin regeneration and repair through micro-surgical needling using a specially-designed device. The needles and very fine and penetrate the upper part of the skin only, making this a comfortable treatment. "No pain, no gain" really doesn't apply! - The device is sterile and used for one treatment only.

How does it work?
The creation of multiple fine needle channels stimulates healing/repair processes in the skin so that renewal takes place and new collagen is laid down and the blood supply improved.

Is there any side effects?
After treatment the skin looks quite red for a couple of hours. Much of this settles within a couple of hours, but some lesser redness may takes another day or two to settle - this is easily covered with make-up.

Are there any risks from treatment?
Dermaroller provides a very safe treatment, and can be used on any skin type. The procedure will be done at SkinTastic Aesthetics LTD in Southampton

Is it painful?
A dermaroller consists of 192 surgical steel micro-needles which, when rolled across the dermis, creates pinpoint punctures. Whilst not usually painful, a dermaroller treatment can be uncomfortable.

How many treatments do I need?
Typically 3 treatments are recommended for rejuvenation treatments, and up to 5 for acne scarring. Results are usually seen from 6 weeks onwards.

Laser Fungus Nail Treatment

WHAT IS NAIL FUNGUS
Fungal nail infections (onychomycosis) are very common - affecting up to one in ten of the UK population. Toenail fungus is an infection underneath the surface of the nail caused by fungi.

When the tiny organisms take hold, the nail often becomes darker in color and smells foul. Debris may collect beneath the nail plate, white marks frequently appear on the nail plate, and the infection is capable of spreading to other toenails, the skin, or even the fingernails. If ignored, the infection can spread and possibly impair your ability to work or even walk. The resulting thicker nails are difficult to trim and make walking painful when wearing shoes. Onychomycosis can also be accompanied by a secondary bacterial or yeast infection in or about the nail plate.



Some prescription medications have side effects and therefore are not always the best treatment option. Another option is surgery to remove the nail; this is not a popular option either. Laser therapy to treat the disease is gaining popularity as a means to achieve a temporary increase in clear nail.

Laser Therapy Acne Scar Treatment

RF & Dermaroller Combined Treatments Avaliable
Our Radiofrequency device treats acne scars with high-frequency radio waves that heat the tissue deep into the skin. It smoothes out indentations left by acne by tightening skin, increasing the growth of the skin protein collagen, and promoting wound healing. Multiple treatments may be necessary to lessen the appearance of scars.



Radio Frequency Treatments can be remarkably effective for acne scarring. Look forward to clear, smoothed, healthy, glowing skin in just a few weeks of treatment.



Acne is a common affliction among many teens and some adults that usually resolves over time. However, the severe sequela of acne scarring can lead to long-term psychological and psychiatric problems. There exists a multitude of modalities to treat acne scars such as more invasive surgical techniques, subcision, chemical peels, ablative lasers, fractional lasers, etc. A more recent technique for the treatment of acne scars is nonablative radiofrequency (RF) that works by passing a current through the dermis at a preset depth to produce small thermal wounds in the dermis which, in turn, stimulates dermal remodeling to produce new collagen and soften scar defects. Our system demonstrates that out of all RF modalities, microneedle bipolar RF and fractional bipolar RF treatments offers the best results for acne scarring. An improvement of 25%-75% can be expected after three to four treatment sessions using one to two passes per session. Treatment results are optimal approximately 3 months after final treatment.

Non Surgical Skin Tightening in Southampton For Eyes Or Body

With quick, comfortable treatment, zero downtime, and no scars, non surgical skin tightening has become a popular way for patients to enhance their appearance and self-confidence without taking time for surgery and recovery.
