Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals or a diamond head device, to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.
Hydra-Microdermabrasion is an advanced facial technology that uses water jets to gently remove dead, dull skin cells from the surface using while stimulating production of new cells deep within the dermal layer to reveal smoother and even textured skin.
LED Treatment for Microdermabrasion
LED light therapy is a non-invasive anti-aging approach that works by emitting energy-producing packets of light deep into the skin’s layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production and destroy acne-causing bacteria. It is used pre or post treatment to rebuild the dermis for gentle skin rejuvenation and healing.

Skin needling, also called microneedling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularisation and neo-collagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.
FACTOR4 – Skin Needling
FACTOR4 or Autologous Anti-aging Serum is highly concentrated and super-rich blood serum containing four times more growth factors than any brand Blood Rich Injection product on the market. The serum is prepared using your own blood, drawn up atleast 6 hours before the procedure, incubated and processed to deconstruct the elements and separate the plasma in the blood. A FACTOR4 treatment naturally stimulates your own collagen, benefiting skin elasticity, significantly slowing down the skin’s aging process and improving the overall skin’s texture, giving it a much more youthful look and feel. The Factor4 serum is used during the Skin Needling

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and rejuvenate the texture of the skin. It is intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin by using a controlled chemical solution that stimulates the dermal healing process to begin regeneration of new skin tissue. The dead skin eventually peels off and the regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Various types and strengths of peels are used to target specific skin issues.
- Skin blemishes
- Sun spots and sun damage
- Skin texture
- Mild scarring
- Pigmentation and skin tone
