At Southern Cosmetics, we offer a range of medi-facials, chemical peels, facial infusions and galvanic facials to help ward off the signs of ageing and truly nourish your skin.
Medi-facials are facials that use medical grade skincare ingredients, but usually do not cause the skin to flake or peel. They are generally milder than chemical peels, but they will still improve the overall appearance of your skin, and often leave your skin feeling tighter and more radiant, but without any downtime.
Chemical peels exfoliate by using substances such as alpha-hydroxy acids (fruit acids) or beta-hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) to help improve the skin’s appearance.
DermaPen Skin Needling
Needling improves skin texture and aids in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. During this treatment, we use a sterile, single-use, pen-like device with adjustable fine surgical steel microneedles to create hundreds of tiny punctures in the skin. As these microneedles penetrate the upper (epidermis) and lower (dermis) layers of the skin at targeted and specific depths, they cause controlled microscopic wounds and pin-point bleeding. This process encourages the body’s own wound healing response, which results in an increase in activity of fibroblasts (collagen-producing cells) and improved skin texture.
