Frequently Asked Questions

Treatments

How do I know which facial I need?


Fortunately, in store we have a skin analysis machine that will give us a reading of the outer and inner layers of your skin. Our machine will tell us your hydration levels, UV exposure, sebum production, pigmentation and wrinkles. It will let us know your skin type and problem areas so we know exactly what to recommend for you.




What are dermal fillers?


Dermal fillers is a hyaluronic acid substance used for the purpose of cosmetic improvement. The substance is made of compounds that mimic the same compound in our body. Dermal fillers are used to enhance and augment the lips, improve the shape of the nose, augment the chin or cheeks, etc.




How long do fillers last?


We offer 2 filler options in our clinic; EPTQ which lasts between 4 to 6 months and Belatero which lasts 6 to 9 months.




What is anti-wrinkle treatment?


Anti-wrinkle is another name used for Botox. It is a toxin used to relax the muscle in your face so those muscles are unable to flex and create wrinkles in those areas. The dose used in cosmetic procedures is minute and has no effect on the rest of the body.




How long does it last?


It lasts between 4 to 6 months for the muscles to return their strength.




What happens when my anti-wrinkle treatment wears off?


Your expression lines gradually return. To maintain the look you will need to repeat the procedure 2 to 3 times a year.




What are skin boosters?


A skin booster is an injectable treatment that restores the hydro-balance in the skin by evenly distributing the injected hyaluronic acid to the face giving your face an airbrushed look.




What are the benefits of skin booster?


Skin boosters are used to deeply hydrate and moisturise your skin. They promote skin cell renewal, minimising pores and reduce skin imperfections such as acne and blemishes. Additionally, skin boosters increase collagen production and improve elasticity and firmness of the skin, reducing lines and dark eye circles. They plumpen your skin's appearance and give you a more youthful glow.




How many sessions of skin booster will I need and how long does it last?


2 sessions, 4 weeks apart. You can then have a maintenance session every 6 months.
