Learn mesotherapy techniques with a range of rollers and dermapen.  Derma Roller induces the body into producing collagen therefore improving the diffusion of the active ingredients. The microneedles create micro channels allowing the active ingredients to penetrate from the surface into the dermal tissue. It promotes the production of new collagen. It also provides a more effective penetration of the active ingredients (200 times more) in the stratum corneum.

Skin Rejuvenation

Chemical Peels

This unit will cover a broad range of peels from 10% to 45%.  A chemical peel is a topical technique used to improve, soften and smooth the texture of the skin using a chemical solution that causes the skin to slough off and eventually peel off. They can be applied on face and body areas. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.  Chemical exfoliation utilises Beta and Alpha Hydroxy Acids to dissolve the bonds that hold skin cells together allowing them to shed.
