Vampire Facial (PRP Micro-needling)

Chemical Skin Peels

LED Phototherapy (LLLT Facials)

Oxygen Facials

Microdermabrasion Treatment

With Osmosis enzyme mask

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that deeply exfoliates the skin involving a diamond tip wand with a gentle vacuum suction that glides over the skin to gently polish the surface of the skin to remove dead skin cells, stimulating blood circulation and collagen production resulting in a soft, fresh and brightened complexion.

How does this Treatment work?

This treatment involves a gentle vacuum effect occurring as a diamond tip wand comes into contact with the skin. As the wand is gliding over the skin, dead skin cells on the surface will be “vacuumed” up the wand, unclogging pores and refining the skin’s texture.

Who does this treatment benefit?

This treatment is ideal for congested, mild pigmentation, fine lines, coarse, thickened, dull and sun damaged skin.

What are the effects?

Benefits include:

  • Reducing the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Unclogging congested skin
  • Improving the appearance of pigmented or sun damaged skin
  • Stimulating lymphatic drainage
  • Stimulating blood circulation and collagen production
  • Stimulating skin cell rejuvenation and increasing skin cell turnover
  • Removing the build-up of dead skin that may be the cause of dull skin

What happens after the procedure?

A slight redness may be visible on the skin right after the treatment, and this can last for a few hours which is completely normal; some people head back to work after a lunch time session of microdermabrasion as there is no downtime involved with this treatment. Mild shedding or flakiness may also occur within the first few days of having the treatment. After a few days, you will see visibly brightened, less dull and a smoother complexion.

When will I see results?

At Hair and Skin Science, we recommend clients to have at least 5 treatments, depending on what the individual is trying to achieve, for optimal results with microdermabrasion and then reviewed after this course. Treatments should be maintained every 2-4 weeks or as advised by your skin therapist and a good home care routine is essential for the maintenance of healthy, rejuvenated skin long-term.

Skin Pigmentation Treatments

Reduce pigmentation and restore your skin’s vibrance

Skin Pigmentation can be caused by a number of reasons, but is most commonly due to the skin’s overexposure to the sun and UV rays. This can result in discoloration, freckles and age spots. Our Pigmentation Treatments include laser pigmentation treatment and radiofrequency therapy.

How does this Treatment work?

At Hair and Skin Science, our pigmentation treatments are non-invasive and fast acting.

Our radio frequency therapy uses 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 non-invasively and extremely rapidly (3-5 sec), without the need of anesthesia.

Similarly, our laser pigmentation treatment radiates light with a specific wavelength in high peak energy pulse, hence the light penetrates the tissue only for an ultra-short nanosecond. The light is absorbed by the pigment tissue and results in an instantaneous blast, that is light blasting principle. The pigment particles are shattered into fragments. Parts of these fragments will be bounced out of the skin and other parts will be split into tiny particles that can be engulfed by phagocytes and then metabolized by the lymphatic system.

Who does this treatment benefit?

Men and women of any age who have benign, minor conditions of the skin may be good candidates for these treatments. Conditions may include freckles, age spots, skin tags and discolourations.

Causes of Pigmentation:

Uneven skin tone and pigmentation differences on the face can be caused by such factors as:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Genetics
  • Sun exposure
  • General ageing
  • Environmental changes
  • Some form of trauma

What are the effects?

These treatments process take just a few seconds per spot. Sometimes patients may require a repeat treatment.

It is almost painless – like a pinch to the skin. Scratching off the scab prematurely may cause a small indentation in the skin. Darker skin types may have a degree of hypo-pigmentation afterwards, which improves over time.

When will I see results?

Results from our pigmentation treatments vary depending on the area being serviced.

Work and other normal activities can be resumed immediately after treatment. There is no downtime. A healing time of a couple of days to one week can be expected. A slight redness or a small scab can be expected.

Vampire Facial (PRP Meso-Needling or Skin Needling)

This PRP & Skin Needling Facial treatment uses both the client’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and micro-fine skin needling to help boost the blood flow and nutrient uptake of the skin – leaving your face looking more refreshed and radiant.

This PRP treatment is used in conjunction with Meso-Needling, a skin needling procedure that is minimally-invasive yet stimulates cell activity under the skin.  Read our blog on what it’s like to have a Vampire Facial.

How does this Treatment work?

Using a small vial of your own blood, we extract the platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) through a procedure which concentrates the blood platelets, providing nutrient plasma to help rejuvenate your skin.
To apply this plasma to the treatment area, we create microscopic channels in the skin through Meso-Needling. You may know this as Dermapen or Micro-needling or skin needling. It’s not uncomfortable – read our blog about what to expect during a PRP Vampire Facial treatment. This treatment, available in our Melbourne Hair & Skin Science Clinic in Ashwood near Chadstone and Mount Waverley, is the ultimate rejuvenating face treatment. PRP Facials can improve your skin’s appearance, skin texture and will assist restoring volume to the face by stimulating collagen and cell renewal. As this treatment uses one’s own blood and platelets, the treatment helps avoid allergic reactions some individuals may have to active products. Five treatments are usually recommended and there’s a discount package of 5 Vampire Facials – you’ll love the benefits of smoother, younger looking skin.

What if I don't want to use my own blood plasma?

If you do not wish to have your blood drawn, patients can opt to use Hyaluronic acid or our in-house Patented Organic growth factor serum with the skin-needling treatment. Hyaluronic acid and Patented Organic growth factor serum both helps to plump the skin and will also help to stimulate and accelerate collagen production as well as enhancing skin hydration, leaving the skin rejuvenated and moisturized.

Who does this PRP Facial treatment benefit? (The Vampire Facial)

The beauty of skin needling or micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is that, unlike lasers, there’s not a risk of pigmentation problems that some melanin rich skins are prone to with some other varieties of facial treatments.  Micro-needling or the derma stamp method is suitable for almost everyone. However, it is best to come in for a consultation to determine whether you are a good candidate and to learn more about whether PRP facials will be suitable for what you want to attain with your skin. And yes, the treatment series can reduce visibility of some acne scarring and other skin texture concerns or inconsistencies.

What are the effects?

Your skin will reflect a mild sunburn effect post treatment as this is part of the inflammatory response of the skin however, this will only last from 12 to 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend ice compress + hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin and avoid sun exposure after the treatment. Sun protection is a must.

When will I see results after PRP Facials (The Vampire Facial)?

You will notice improvements in your complexion within 6 weeks of having your treatment. Additionally, your skin will continue to progress over the next 6-12 months. A number of treatments are recommended for optimal results.
