AESTHETIC FACIAL TREATMENTS

Réjuvapen® Micro Fractional Collagen Induction Therapy

5-rejuvapen

Réjuvapen®, is a medical grade, state of the art Micro Fractional Collagen Stimulation System™ that uses precisely spaced micro needles in a cartridge, to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and dermis. As a result and immediately afterwards, the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. This natural form of skin renewal, from the inside out, not only activates cell regeneration, but also enhances the absorption of active ingredients into the skin. Réjuvapen® is a remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical device only available through trained skincare professionals.
Réjuvapen® is suitable for all skin types and has many wonderful benefits:
regains skin elasticity
– firms & tightens skin laxity
– reduces fine Lines & wrinkles
– improves skin tone & circulation
– minimizes & refines pore size
– treats Hyper-Pigmentation
– treats Stretch Marks
– treats Acne Scarring
The concept of micro-needling has been around since the 1950’s. Pioneered and developed by Dr Des Fernandes FRCS, Plastic Surgeon and founder of Environ you’re more than likely to have heard it being referred to as Skin Needling, Dermal Rollering, Collagen Induction Therapy or Collagen Stimulation Therapy™ (CST). The Réjuvapen® is a streamlined state of the art form of microneedling thathas many advantages compared to the other devices available as a professional salon only treatment. Réjuvapen’s® unique variable needle depth allows the Therapist to tailor the treatment according to the client’s needs whilst its versatility means it can be used on many parts of the body, including face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The treatment procedure for Réjuvapen®, differs slightly form that of CST. To find out more please call the salon. To begin this treatment an in-depth consultation is mandatory.
Research has shown that the use of topical cosmeceutical products for home use pre and post treatment is essential for the health and rejuvenation of your skin. Dr Fernandes recommends you begin doing so 2 weeks prior to your treatment and continue their use post treatment.
The longevity of the results achieved, will depend upon it, as these products contain professional strength pro-Collagen synthesisers, Vitamins A, C & E, Hyaluronic Acids, Growth Factors and Antioxidants that have high epidermal penetration, are non-comedogenic and safe to use. It is absolutely essential that you wear sun protection at all times after your treatment. Dr Fernandes also advocates taking supplements from the Advanced Nutrition to feed your skin essential nutrients from within, to maintain, nourish and provide a collagen boost pre and post treatment.
Please see our section guide ‘Retail Products For Home Use ‘Pre & Post Treatment’ below for a list of all recommended products. These products are available at Fresh & Fabulous, however, if you’re unsure please speak to the Therapist during your in-depth consultation.

Collagen Stimulation Therapy/Skin Needling/Dermal Rollering

The concept of micro-needling has been around since the 1950’s. Pioneered and developed by Dr Des Fernandes FRCS, Plastic Surgeon and founder of Environ you’re more than likely to have heard it being referred to as Skin Needling, Dermal Rollering, Collagen Induction Therapy or Collagen Stimulation Therapy™ (CST). The Réjuvapen® treatment, as detailed above, is the latest form this treatment has taken. However, we continue to offer CST treatment as it differs slightly in its end procedure from that of the Réjuvapen® treatment.CST is especially effective at addressing the visible signs of ageing, acne scarring, tightening slackened skin, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and dilated blood vessels. It improves the thickness and texture of the skin, reducing discoloration caused by sun damage, evening out skin tone and restoring a healthy, flawless skin. It also has an anti-ageing effect as it enables greater absorption of stimulating growth factors, Vitamin A & C serums and topical creams which nourish and improve the quality of the skin.
CST works on the simple principle of what happens when the skin encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns or other abrasions. The dermis begins the process of repairing itself by stimulating the blood supply to the area, removing the damaged collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and other structures and replacing them with large amounts of new collagen, to heal and improve the skin. It is this renewal technique that is harnessed in collagen stimulation therapy. By creating micro-injuries to the top layers of the skin through controlled induction, the skin’s self-repair mechanism triggers the body’s natural ability to induce new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid resulting in smoother, firmer, younger and fresher looking skin, devoid of scars and minor flaws.
CST has been proven to:
– Make incredible changes to the skin without the need for invasive surgery
– Give comparable results at a fraction of the cost of ablative treatments such as lasers, dermabrasions and deep medical peels
– Have a longer lasting effect, as it take several months for new collagen to be formed
– Give incredible results when complemented by ANP* nutritional supplements
– Use the body’s own powers of rejuvenation making it a completely natural treatment
– Have minimal discomfort as a topical anaesthetic is applied to the area being treated
– Have minimal downtime with a short healing phase
– Be able to safely treat all areas of the face and body
– Not increase sensitivity to the sun
– Be suitable for all skin types and ethnicity
– Be a viable alternative to short term invasive procedures

CHEMICAL PEELS

A peel is a cosmetic technique used to aesthetically improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, chest, back or hands. Peels work through the application of a chemical or enzymatic exfoliant, inducing controlled necrosis (destruction) of the epidermis and dermis cells. This destruction leads to the removal of cellular debris, skin lesions and minor imperfections whilst improving the skins texture. After the peel, and as part of the healing process, there is increased cell growth producing new, healthier skin layers giving the skin its youthful and rejuvenated appearance. It’s a relatively simple aesthetic treatment that gives fabulous results. Peels instead of Microdermabrasion is the preferred choice of many clients to maintain their skins health and vitality.
Peels offer a results-driven treatment for a wide array of skin conditions such as:
– fine lines and wrinkles
– acne & acne scarring
– hyperpigmentation
– age spots
– dry & flaky skin
However, not all peels are the same and many are nervous when a peel is mentioned as they think it’s going to involve lots of redness and downtime, hiding away from their friends and family! Not so. Peels are very safe and popular with clients of all ages and skin types.
Peels do differ just like skin types and their difference is based on how deeply they penetrate the skin. This is determined by:
– type of or combination of acids
– concentration of the agents in the peel
– pH (how acidic it is) of the solution
– number of coats applied
– timing of the procedure i.e. how long it stays on the skin
Peels can be separated and classified into 3 different types:
Superficial Peels:
The most common type of peels used in salons. Superficial peels involve the destruction of majority of the epidermis and are formulated to target specific skin concerns. They are the perfect option for those looking to have the best results with minimal side effects. There are 2 levels of Superficial Peels: Level 1 & Level 2. Superficial Level 1 & 2 Peels are often used as a preparation step for Medium or Deep Peels. At Fresh & Fabulous we use Environ & Medik8 Superficial Level 1 & 2 Peels.
Superficial Level 1:
The Superficial Level 1 peels involve the destruction of majority of the epidermis and are formulated to target specific skin concerns. They are the perfect option for those looking to have the best results with minimal side effects giving visible long lasting results. Level 1 Peels can be taken as course of treatment throughout the year, as they have virtually no down time from skin shredding, redness and irritation. The peels are virtually painless and can be applied to other areas of the body such as back, décolletage, hands and neck.
Superficial Level 2:
Jessner Peels is a superior all in one chemical peel used to treat a variety of skin conditions with long lasting visible results. It’s designed to remove the entire epidermis to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation, treat sun-damaged skins, mild to severe acne, mild scarring, discolouration and moderate wrinkling. The peel can be performed in a single layer or multiple layers – you will be advised by your Therapist. With a Level 2 Peel, clients must be prepared for moderate downtime and peeling.
The Jessner Peel is designed to remove the dead skin cells more deeply whilst having a multiple function:
– to treat and lighten the areas of hyperpigmentation
– sun damaged skin
– mild to severe acne condition

For long term effective results it is recommended that you have a course of treatments over a period of time and as recommended by your Therapist. The number of treatments will depend on how your skin improves and how satisfied you are with the results. You will be provided with information on how to care for your skin post treatment.
