PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING YOUR HIFU TREATMENT!
HIFU may not be appropriate for everyone. In general, the procedure works best on people older than 30 and younger than 60 with mild-to-moderate skin laxity.
People with photodamaged skin or a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results.
Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin laxity, or very saggy skin on the neck aren’t good candidates and may need surgery.
HIFU isn’t recommended for people with infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe or cystic acne and metallic implants in the treatment area. It’s also not recommended for areas injected with Botox or dermal fillers and thread lifts as It is possible that the heat from HIFU can break down and diminish the
effectiveness of the dermal filler or neurotoxin.
PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING YOUR EYEBROW/EYELASH TREATMENT!
1. A patch test for brow tinting /henna/lamination and lash tinting/ perming/ lifting/ extensions procedures is required 24-48 hours prior to your first appointment. This should also be done if it has been six months since your last tinting appointment or your medical circumstances have changed in between appointments.
2. A patch test for waxing can be booked if you are worried about skin sensitivity.
3. Please avoid applying self tan to the eyebrow area for three days prior to your Brow appointment if having a tint.
1. Please inform your Beautician immediately if you experience a reaction.
2. Avoid the use of swimming pools, sun beds, sauna’s and prod- ucts containing perfume for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
3. Do not apply self-tanning products directly to the brow area as this may effect the colour of the tint.
4. Avoid microdermabrasion, granular exfoliator or skin thinning products for 72 hours.
5. Remember that your results with be darker, sharper and more defined for the first 24 hours after treatment.

SKIN AND ADVANCED TREATMENTS
PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING YOUR SKIN TREATMENT!
Certain skin face treatments such as MICRONEEDLING /DERMAROLLER/ BB GLOW uses multiple needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This stimulates the body’s own healing response, which in turn stimulates the production of new collagen helping to improve skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and other scars.
Photos – Photos of the area being treated will be taken for practitioner records and will not be used for any other purposes.
Possible side effects
• After treatment, it can take several days for the skin to heal and return to normal. Generally, this will be 3-4 days. The following may be experienced:
Temporary localised redness and very mild swelling. This may be prolonged if you are taking any medication that can affect platelet function and bleeding times.
• Bruising and the skin appearing scratched or grazed is possible. Bruising may be more likely around the eye area.
• Sensitivity to touch, irritation, itchiness.
• Dryness and milk flaking of the skin.
• Hyperpigmentation of treated areas is uncommon but possible.
• Aggressive treatment can result in scarring.
• Although unlikely, it is possible that those who suffer with psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo and other skin conditions in areas not to be treated can develop new patches at site of treatment.
Aftercare – It is important to allow your skin to heal without harsh products. The evening of the treatment, if you wish to wash your skin, do so very gently and with a light cleanser such as Avene gentle cleanser or micellar water. Do not scratch or pick the skin whilst it heals. Doing so may result in pigmentation. Do not use heavy make-up for at least 24hours. Mineral based make-up may be worn to enable the skin to breath whilst healing. Do not use make-up in any areas of broken skin. Use sun protection minimum spf 30 and avoid strong direct sunlight for 2 weeks. Wait until the skin has fully healed before restating and topical glycolic. I have read and understood the above information.
If you choose to have your MICRODERMABRASION and/or CHEMICAL PEEL or DEEP CLEANSING FACIAL Your cosmetic practitioner will advise you what to do and what not to do after your treatment to ensure the best possible result from your treatment. This is a written outline of those instructions for your information.
The following general instructions apply:
• AVOID sun exposure for the next week
• AVOID exercise for 24 hours
• AVOID swimming for the next week – chemicals could irritate the skin
• DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the skin
• Use gentle cleansers and avoid harsh exfoliants for 2-3 days
• DO NOT apply fake tan or spray tan for 1 week
• DO NOT use any AHA or BHA or acidic based products for 2-3 days (eg Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic etc)
• DO NOT use any Vitamin A based products for 2-3 days (eg Retin A, Retinoic acid, Stieva A, Zorac etc)
• DO NOT put water or any other topical cream or lotion on a Jessner’s peel for 24 hours. It will
reactivate the peel and allow the peel to continue working longer than the recommended time – this
can lead to blistering and damage to the underlying skin.
• Moisturise and hydrate adequately day and night. Your cosmetic practitioner will advise you of the
best skin care regimen for your skin to compliment this treatment and address your particular
• Use sunscreen (Skinstitut 50+ or ASAP 30+ SPF Sunscreen plus moisturuser)
Please note that not all ‘peels’ cause visible peeling of the skin. Some peels produce a microscopic shedding of the outer dead skin layer which is not visible to the naked eye. The presence or absence of visible peeling does not impact on the final results and in some skin types aggressive visible peeling of the skin is not advised.
You may experience some minor breakouts or occasional pimples after undergoing a microdermabrasion, extractions and/ or peel. If this occurs they are very short lived and resolve spontaneously.
BEFORE RF MICRONEEDLE:
● Avoid use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin, motrin, advil,
ibuprofen) for two weeks prior to
treatment to minimize the potential for bruising, unless the medications involved are prescribed for the treatment of an existing medical condition.
● If you have a history of fever blisters, take antiviral medication starting 1 day prior and follow directions on your prescription.
● Stop all topical acids (like glycolic, alpha or beta hydroxyl acids), retinols, retin-A, or other like products 7 days prior to treatment.
● Avoid tanning beds or prolonged exposure to the sun 4 days prior to treatment. Always use a zinc oxide sunscreen with SPF 30+.
