Significant improvement in the texture and tone of the skin. A natural glow is simulated. A reduction in wrinkles, scarring, sun damage, freckles and tighter skin. The skin will continue to improve for a period of 6 months following the procedure provided proper skincare is used and sun exposure is minimized.
Individual results vary.
People consider fractional laser resurfacing for the following reasons:
- Fractional laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment that delivers positive results with minimal side effects and complications.
- The procedure requires very little downtime, as the surface layer of skin heals much faster than it would after surgery where multiple layers of skin are damaged.
- Because it is non-surgical, the treatment itself does not take as long as cosmetic procedures involving surgery. Depending on the area being treated Fractional Laser treatments usually take about 45 minutes.
Nearly anyone who has a skin problem can undergo fractional laser resurfacing.
Fractional resurfacing is performed on an outpatient basis. You will go home straight after the treatment.
Your skin may tingle and feel hot, just as if you had sunburn. A cold compress on the area will relieve this uncomfortable feeling.
The reddened skin will fade and “bronze” within 1-3 days. The treated skin will then turn into a dark crust that feels like sandpaper. Approximately 10 -14 days later, this top layer of damaged skin will fall off and allow new skin to come to the surface.
- Apply a hypoallergenic moisturizer to ease your symptoms after the treatment, but avoid creams with active ingredients such as Alpha hydroxides or Retinoids.
- During the healing period, apply sun block with a minimum SPF of 30+ at least 30 minutes before going out into the sun.
- Avoid scrubbing the laser-treated areas with any abrasive materials.
- Keep cool, because sweat on freshly treated skin will sting.
- It is best to wait to wear makeup until the 2nd day after treatment. If you must wear makeup, be sure the ingredients are as natural as possible.
- Do not swim in a chlorinated pool for 1 week following treatment.
- Do not pick at the damaged flaking skin.
After the treated area has completely healed, patients usually notice that their skin is smooth and glowing.
- Great results
- Little or no downtime
- Quick treatment time
- Easy, in and out procedure
Laser Hair Removal
Each hair follicle goes through different stages in the hair growth cycle. The stages are Anagen(growth), Catagen (transient), and Telogen (resting). During treatment the laser light will damage the hair follicles that are in Anagen (growth) phase. This is why subsequent treatments are necessary, as not every follicle may be in the anagen phase each time. The number of treatments will be determined at your consultation after an analysis of the hair. Treatments are usually between 4–10 weeks apart depending on the area.
Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of light treatment. An laser/IPL system delivers a wavelength of light. The powerful burst of light to the hair causes damage to the hair follicle, as the melanin (dark pigment) absorbs the light and heats the hair, thereby removing the possibility of regrowth in that particular follicle.
It is important to inform your technician if you have recently been on holiday in a hot country or if you have used a sun-bed or a fake tan.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation / PhotoFacial
Hyper-pigmentation is the brown colour in the skin which is determined by the pigment called melanin. Skin cells produce melanin, however when they are damaged or become unhealthy the melanin production is affected and become darker in patches. These can become more noticeable as the years go by. Often they develop because of sun damage, but there are other causes too, such as birth control pills, pregnancy, nursing, illnesses, medications and overall ageing.
The procedure causes the skin to work at a higher and better efficiency level. The treatment reduces excessive oil secretion by reducing the swelling of oil glands. Bacteria are eliminated, as well as the improvement of collagen. Studies have shown that laser treatment will increase the collagen content in skin. This is great because as we age the level of collagen decreases. Photo facial also targets the red and brown spots, which are hidden in the superficial layers of the skin. Photo rejuvenation treats the hyper pigmentation due to sun damage and aging. This is very important to achieve beautiful and radiant skin.
In fact, laser skin treatments for wrinkles and other signs of aging can be done during a lunch hour and no one will notice any sign of treatment, just a gradual improvement in the skin’s appearance. Each treatment is gentle with no downtime.

Platlelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hairloss
Although PRP technology is considered cutting edge technology, it haswas initially developed 20 years for heart surgery to aid in wound healing. It been used for years in surgical applications and wound care. The use of PRP for the scalp is fairly new and evolving into a promising treatment for use both as an adjunct to a hair transplant and as a way to reverse hair loss. It is generally accepted that there is a significant response.
An initial consultation will be performed to explain the procedure. Also to answer all your questions. The patient should avoid all anti-inflammatory medications and alcohol for 2 days prior. Consume plenty of water. Right after the PRP procedure, the patient is fine to continue normal everyday life.
PRP for skin rejuvenation
After an initial consultation. On the treatment day your blood will be drawn by a phlebotomist. Just like when you go in for a blood test at a doctors office. The blood will then be spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet plasma from the red blood cells.
Any makeup on the skin will be removed using a wipe, and antiseptic will be applied to the injection site. A topical local anaesthetic will then be applied to the skin of the injection site for 30 minutes. PRP is applied to the skin via a derma pen. The treatment usually takes 60-90 minutes. The patients should not drink any alcohol one day prior to treatment. Also eat and drink a lot of fluids before attending their appointment. This will enable the blood to be withdrawn more easily.
Both men and women can develop skin tags.
Skin tags tend to grow in the skin folds, where the skin rubs against itself, such as on the neck, armpits or groin. This is why they tend to affect overweight people who have excess folds of skin and skin chafing.
It works by mobilizing collagen fibres into action so the skin can regain its elasticity and form. This is a non-invasive procedure. The area is cleansed, then you have a gel applied, and the procedure starts where a probe is glided over your skin.
The skin tightening treatment uses infra-red pulsed light technology to heat the deepest layers of skin and increases the production of collagen. This improves the skin laxity and tightens loose skin. It re-contours the body and softens out wrinkles. This results in firmer, tighter and younger looking skin.
Individual results vary.
For the non-invasive treatment, your skin will be red for a short period of time but you can carry on your day as normal.
- Tighten skin
- smaller pores size
- even skin tone.

IPL Acne Treatment
To answer this you first need to understand what causes acne in the first place. Acne occurs when your body produces too much of the male hormone androgen (that is in fact present in men and women). Androgen is responsible for making increased levels of oil (sebum) to be produced by your sebaceous gland which in turn can cause the pores in your skin to get blocked. These blocked pores stop the oil rising to the skin’s surface making it susceptible to bacteria feeding on the oil and causing the inflammation and spots.
IPL acne treatment systems work by creating oxygen that rapidly eliminates the bacteria that feeds the blocked pores, which is the main source of most acne and inflammation.
IPL systems have undergone clinical trials to ensure they are safe and effective to use but it is worth noting the Blue Light acne treatment is not effective for all acne types. To determine your eligibility for IPL blue light book your free skin analysis at Redeem Medispa, where you can determine your best course of action for your acne.
Many people have had great, life-changing success with this method so it is worth trying the treatment.
“My acne was was considerable and I would never go out without makeup, but after the first month of IPL blue light at Redeem Medispa I felt confident enough to spend the day with no make up. It really has made a difference, I was sceptical at first but so glad l tried it. The staff at Redeem were very supportive and also advised me on my home care routine. I would recommend that you give it a try.”
