Facials, Skin Treatments

Skin Consultation

Upon your first visit to Botanique for any facial treatment, we will generally include a skin consultation to ensure your desired outcome is achieved, as well as to confirm that nothing will preclude you from having a particular procedure.

We ask that you are willing to share information regarding any medications, skincare products, lifestyle choices and diet plans you are currently following so that we can best help you treat your skin from a holistic perspective.

Achieving long term results is dependent on many factors, both internal and external including environment, sleeping patterns, overall nutrition, water intake, smoking status, sun exposure, hormones, medication, and many more aspects that may vary for each individual.

Consultation typically includes firstly a cleanse and removal of makeup, followed by a “before” photograph, and the use of a woods lamp and/or skin scanner. There is no charge for initial skin consultations as this assists us in devising your long term skin care plan.

At Botanique, we offer a wide variety of treatments to improve skin condtions. This includes everything from basic ‘relaxation’ style spa facials to medi spa treatments utilising state of the art equipment. If you are unsure of the type of treatment you might, need, please read the attached guide to Skin Conditions and Treatments available here:

ADVANCED MEDI SPA TREATMENTS


High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound 

Our most advanced anti ageing treatment available, HIFU is a new cosmetic technology which can significantly tighten and lift several areas of the face, reduce the signs of ageing and improve the tone of the skin with potentially long-lasting effects of up to one year. It is often referred to as a surgical facelift due to the profound effects.

Individually it targets brow, jowl and neck lifting, crows feet, as well as overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. You will see a noticeable improvement in facial contouring, fine lines and wrinkles.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

HIFU is a no downtime treatment designed for anti-aging, face lifting, body contouring and sculpting without surgery, bleeding or scarring. HIFU technology is NOT like laser, fraxel, radio frequency, IPL, needling, or any other surgical, or non-surgical, ‘face lift’ skin rejuvenation procedure. In fact it is much more effective, as less treatments are needed.

The technology works by beaming through the surface of the skin to deliver precise and fractional ultrasound energy to the deeper dermis, subcutaneous tissue and muscle layers. this deeper layer is responsible for muscular activity in the face. This energy stimulates both muscle firming and new collagen production, with no disruption to the outer skin surface (no scarring).

Are there any side effects from HIFU?

HIFU may cause a slight redness to the skin, but this usually disappears within a matter of hours after the treatment. Some people may also suffer from a slight swelling, bruising, tenderness, numbness or tingling sensation. These symptoms are usually mild and only last temporarily.

How painful is HIFU?

HIFU may cause some discomfort. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.

During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.

From $249 (Payment plans available)

LED

LED is a low-level-light energy device based on NASA LED technology which is used to treat many musculoskeletal and skin conditions. LED light energy is emitted from a panel, absorbed at the surface of the skin, penetrating as deep as 25mm, to re-establish normal cellular health and function. Red light is used to promote collagen and elastin production whilst blue LED light is intended to help reduce the appearance of mild to moderate acne. $90

Clear Skin Treatment

If you suffer from any one of a number of benign lesions including millia, skin tags, fibroma, cherry angioma, etc. and would love to see them gone, the good news is most of these types of unsightly growths can be safely and efficiently removed.

At Botanique we offer a device that works through non invasive radio, high frequency technology to treat minor skin abnormalities without penetrating the skin’s surface.  It is used to treat these superficial irregularities rapidly without the need for anesthesia. The discomfort level experienced by the client is tolerable, with the sensation produced feeling much like a tight pinch to the skin.  Patients commonly see immediate results, usually in only one treatment.

We always recommend you have a thorough examination by your doctor first to rule out any possible irregularities. From $25 per lesion/$90 hour


RF Skin Tightening

The RF skin tightening treatments use bipolar radio frequency modalities to heat subcutaneous dermal tissue using a hand piece emitting radio frequency waves. This causes contraction of the existing collagen fibres, encourages fibroblast migration and promotes new collagen growth. It is a very relaxing treatment and includes a facial cleanse, steam, scrub or other exfoliant, RF plus finishing creams.

RF skin tightening aims to restore a more youthful look by helping to reverse the signs of ageing and gravity via reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. tightening of sagging skin around the jowls, neck and double chin, and improvement of skin laxity and skin tone. $249

Hydradermabrasion

Hydradermabrasion utilises the natural healing powers of water and oxygen to effortlessly exfoliate the skin without the use of hard crystals or abrasive textured wands, generating deeply hydrated and healthier looking skin. Hydrodermabrasion treatments are highly effective in improving the skin’s texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and giving deeper hydration to the skin.   Blood circulation is improved which leads to greater collagen production and thus skin tone improvement. $90

 


Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)/Skin Needling for Skin Rejuvenation and Treatment of Scars

Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an effective, natural treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines and soften scars. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face, neck, décolletage and other parts of the body. Those who suffer from fine lines, dull skin, enlarged pores, acne scars, chicken pox scars and surgical scars (more than 6 months old) are suitable for treatment.

Skin needling is performed with a surgical grade instrument with stainless steel micro needles ranging from 0.5mm to 2mm in length. The treatment promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin, making the skin feel smoother and tighter through the creation of microscopic punctures in the epidermis. Generally a minimum of 3 treatments are required to achieve the optimum rejuvenation of an area. When treating scarring, at least 5-6 treatments would generally be required. The treatments are performed 5-6 weeks apart.

Most clients report a gradual improvement in their skin colour and texture over 6- 8 week period. Results continue to improve with each consecutive treatment; the use of professional salon products is highly recommended to ensure lasting results.

After skin needling LED will be used to continue the regeneration of collagen in the skin as well as the healing process. Your skin will appear flushed (pink to red) which may last for 12 to 24 hours on average.

To ensure the right healing environment, do not use glycolic acid, retinol, acidic skincare or highly active ingredients for 48 hours. SPF for sun protection is mandatory.

Some clients may not be suitable for treatment. An individual consultation will be performed to determine suitability.

$249 for face (other areas by quotation)

Some clients will see results after one treatment session while most require 3 – 6 treatments or more to notice results. All treatments include neck & decolletage


IPL/Laser for Pigmentation Treatment

Pigmented lesions such as age spots or freckles can be successfully lightened or removed with IPL. These treatments are non-invasive, suitable for both the face and body and will result in a more even skin tone. IPL releases short pulses of filtered light that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within freckles, sun spots or liver spots. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.

 

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist.

Large, dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are superficial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles.

 

 

IPL/Laser for Vascular Treatment – Intense Pulsed Light can provide a long term solution to facial problems such as red flushing (Rosacea), thread veins and red spots as well as unsightly leg veins, with minimal downtime or risk in just a few quick and easy treatments. IPL emits light which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to a point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion. Most red skin lesions including facial thread veins, rosacea, spider naevi, port wine stains are treated with Intense Pulsed Light. Treatment is suitable for most people, however, best results are obtained for those with fair skin, and there is less chance of side effects. The best response is seen with facial thread veins, spider naevi and rosacea.
