Fully customised – the medi-facial peels & LED treatments that bring results
Chemical peels and Customised Infusions can effectively improve a wide variety of skin conditions including:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Sallow Appearance
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven pigmentation and melasma
- Shallow acne scars
- Age spots
This treatment is the Ultimate Medical Dermal Skin treatment that incorporates the following techniques:
- Deep Sonic Frequency Cleaning treatment to lift off dead skin cells and remove blockages in the pores
- Medical grade and prescription peels incorporating enzymes, amino acids and lactic acids to remodel and repair damaged cells
- LED light therapy to promote collagen growth and kill acne bacteria and repair damaged cells
These LED treatments are personally customised to each individual’s skin requirements to get the maximum results from the full treatment. The deep sonic cleansing is the preferred method to achieve a deep true clean and exfoliation with light resurfacing technique that is now favoured over microdermabrasion. This technique does not include any harsh chemicals or sanding back of the skin as microdermabrasion and severe chemical peels do making it very safe and effective for all skin types and conditions. Deep sonic cleansing known as “Ultra Sonic” exfoliates the surface of the skin to deep clean and lift impurities out of the pores by generating 28,000 vibrations per second and this with gentle applied pressure lifts off dead skin cells and debris from the face.
Following the deep sonic cleanse is a manual or electronic frequency skin roll extraction procedure if the skin is congested to unblock the pores of the skin. This is performed without causing any damage to the skin structure and does not cause future permanent scarring.
Once the skin is fully cleaned, pure and regulated it is then ready to accept further treatment such as a professionally selected vitamin peels to further clear and regulate pore size, stimulate fibroblasts to encourage collagen and elastin growth to nourish and strengthen the deep dermal layers where it counts most to create strong healthy skin.
Our peels are selected according the patients’ needs and most have no down time allowing you to return to normal activities immediately afterwards. All our medical grade peels are safe and very effective with many levels to suit individual needs and specific skin conditions.
Following removal of the peel, Medical LED light therapy is applied where the ultimate rejuvenation and healing takes place aided by strong yet safe lights to assist in the healing process as well as to promote regeneration of the skin. Medical LED treatments are also very effective in treating acne problems and assisting in clearing up outbreaks, wound healing and reduction of fine lines and scarring.
Medical Grade Chemical Peels
Alphahydroxy acids, such as glycolic, lactic or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels with noticeable results. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin for people who can’t spare the time to recover from a TCA or phenol peel. AHA’s are used to treat fine wrinkling, dryness, uneven pigmentation, and acne. AHA’s may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best results. These acids are also used as a part of daily skin-care regimens to improve the texture of the skin.
Medical Grade Chemical Peels uses an enzymatic solution to improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing its damaged outer layers. This reduces fine lines and wrinkles, lightens skin discolourations, helps to reduce acne, and smooths the texture of the skin. All are designed to accelerate the beautifying effects of your home skincare treatment. Our Doctors or Dermal Therapist may recommend a light / superficial peel or a deeper peel depending on your individual needs.
The best candidates for chemical peels are those individuals with facial blemishes, uneven skin pigmentation and/or acne and. Following a consultation with our trained staff at True Skin, a decision will be made regarding which peel is most appropriate for your skin type and condition. Our clinicians are highly skilled in medical grade peels and have been using these products for many years. Our Clinicians perform chemical peels for patients to tighten skin, reduce wrinkling and restore a more youthful appearance, as well as to prepare your skin for laser therapy.
During your initial consultation with a doctor or therapist at True Skin, you will want to explain the level of skin improvement you hope to achieve. Our clinicians will then review your medical history and examine your skin type and pigmentation to determine if you are a good candidate for a chemical peel. Together you can evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of the different treatment modalities. We will discuss your options, your expectations and determine the best treatment plan for you.
What is the treatment like?
Most patients experience a warm to hot sensation which may last as long as ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. For deeper peels, some patients require local facial anaesthesia. At True Skin, we take every step to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you, and if required, there is cryogenic cooler at your request.
Don’t forget to mention any medical history including history of viral infections, sensitivity to the sun, or prior skin treatments such as microdermabrasion or Roaccutane treatments within the past 6 months.
What should you expect after treatment?
After your clinician performs a chemical peel, depending on the depth of the peel, and your skin’s reactions, you will feel and see a difference straight away. With the deeper chemical peels, you may feel it to be similar to a sunburn and may range from mild to more pronounced (depending on the depth of the peel you’ve had). Generally, the deeper the peel the longer the recovery time.
A light chemical peel usually results in some redness, and possibly some scaling for the first few days. Flaky skin can be concealed with our recommended mineral make-up. Most people feel that their skin looks cleaner, fresher and tighter immediately afterwards. These “today” peels require little preparation, on your behalf. You are able to go back to work immediately afterwards. It is perfect in preparation for a special event!
Medium and deep peels may require some home preparation before the procedure to produce the best possible results. The result after the medium to deep peels may be swelling and blisters that break open, forming a crust and turning brown, followed by peeling which may last up to 2 weeks. These peels may require dressings on some or all of the treated skin. Dressings are usually removed after 1 – 2 days. Serums and creams will be applied to keep the skin moist. At first the new skin will have the appearance of a significant sunburn which will gradually fade to pink over the next several weeks. Cosmetics can be applied after about 2 weeks. Following a chemical peel, your new skin will be tighter, smoother and may be slightly lighter than it was before treatment.
Short descriptions of some non-chemical peels we offer are listed below:
We believe this is the most effective peel and procedure that will revolutionise the way we treat skin in the future.
Instead of wounding the skin, medi-facial infusion, with its potent liposomal delivery of calming, antibacterial, lightening and eight dermal remodelling ingredients is great for every skin condition. It is extremely safe because it is free of any alpha/beta hydroxy acids and it is therefore well tolerated by all skin types. We see mild to moderate exfoliation two to four (2-4) days after the medi-facial infusions which usually lasts for another 2-3 days. The treatment is gentle but the results are significant.
This Peel is suited most for those with acne and acne scarring. It will dramatically improve and heal skin caused by acne without damaging it with harsh chemicals. You will be amazed by the results!!
Full of beneficial antioxidants, the Pomegranate Peel reduces free radicals and slows cellular damage while helping to create a smoother, more even skin surface. Perfect for anti-ageing effects, this peel is luxurious and the perfect way to unwind whilst revealing glowing, smooth skin.
Following any skin peel, it is important that you avoid any exposure to the sun. Your new skin is very sensitive and susceptible to injury. Always apply a wide spectrum (UVA and UVB blocking) sunblock twenty minutes before you go outside and when possible wear a broad brimmed hat. Your doctor at True Skin will prescribe a proper in clinic and or home skin-care treatment program to ensure proper healing.

LED light therapy is medically validated to treat and promote:
- Increased micro circulation and stimulation
- Stimulated oxygen in the blood supply and connective tissues
- Delivers and speeds up the healing process
- Increased cellular metabolism – lymphatic drainage – removal of skin and blood toxic waste
- Stimulates rapid amounts of collagen activity which enables the repairing and healing process of connective tissue for inflammation and weeping tissue
- Not to mention a very plumped, hydrated youthful skin
- What is LED Lightwave Therapy?
LED light therapy is the process of converting light energy into cellular energy for natural, non-invasive skin rejuvenation. Through a combination of Red light therapy, Blue light therapy and Infrared light therapy these wavelengths work for:
- Anti ageing therapy
- Cellulite treatment
- Acne treatment
- Flaccid skin
- Hair loss
- Enhanced wound healing
- Discomfort and more
Blue and Red light can also be used to activate PDT, (PhotoDynamic Therapy).
There are many scientifically proven and well-documented life processes that are light dependent. For instance:
- Photosynthesis (plants)
- Production of vitamin D in human skin
- Regulation of moods and circadian rhythm in both humans and animals
LIGHTWAVE LED light therapy stimulates the rejuvenation of living tissues through the process of “photo-bio-stimulation”, which means “the stimulation of life with light.” Photobiostimulation is very similar to the process of photosynthesis. As you remember from high school, photosynthesis is the process by which plants manufacture chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the energy, which drives the functions of the plant at the cellular level, allowing the plant to thrive. Chlorophyll is to the plant what ATP is to the human body. Neither chlorophyll nor ATP can be manufactured without the presence of specific-wavelengths of light.
It is important to note that the visible Red and Infra-red energies used in a LIGHTWAVE treatment do not heal/rejuvenate the tissues being treated.
IGHTWAVE simply provides the tissues being treated with the energy necessary to spark the production of ATP. Once ATP is produced, the body will use this energy to carry out repair and rejuvenation on a cellular level and in return, the body will visibly repair itself.
Blue light (wavelength 405nm-420nm) provides a superficial or slight penetration of light into the skin. It is mostly absorbed by the epidermis of the skin. Blue light (at specific wavelength 405-420nm) targets the P. acnes bacteria by stimulating the body’s tissues to convert the energy from the light into ATP. Within six to eight sessions, you will see a marked difference. When Blue Light LED Therapy and Red Light LED Therapy are utilised in conjunction to one another they become very effective at targeting inflammatory acne.
LED Lightwave Therapy
Red light (wavelength 630nm-640nm) penetrates the skin superficially, with about 80% of the energy being absorbed in the first 2cm. Our skin has photo receptors or biological switches which are activated by specific wavelengths, in particular 630nm wavelength, which increases the production of ATP. This in turn boosts fibroblast activity which is pre-collagen building activity, ideal for allowing to skin to renew itself on its own.
LED Lightwave Therapy
Infrared (IR) light (wavelength 800nm – 900nm) energy penetrates skin to a deeper level than Blue and Red light. A NASA study has shown that approximately 50% penetrates to 8cm and decreases to less than 1% at 20cm. Infrared energy heats skin and the effects are well documented for therapeutic pain management. Cosmetic use of IR is possible as IR stimulates the NaK+ pump involved in increasing the permeability of the cell membrane. This process facilitates the equilibrium of cellular pH, while also increasing nutritional absorption and the elimination of waste by-products.
Skin is affected differently by pulsing the different wavelengths between 10 Hz – 10,000 Hz. High or fast pulses stimulate mitosis and cellular repair, Mid-range pulses stimulate endorphin production and slow pulses reduce nerve sensitivity by decreasing the production of Brinikin lucitrin required for the transmission of pain signals.
We have specific programs that use a combination of the different wavelengths (colours) and pulses frequencies including continuous waves which are designed for optimum skin and tissue response for each pre-set indication.
Because some skin care products contain reflective agents we cleanse the skin before LED Treatment to ensure the light can best penetrate the skin for the most effective result.
