LED MICRODERMABRASION & PHOTOFACIAL

The MAVISKIN is an award-winning swiss technology which combines the latest in microdermabrasion and Photofacial technology to provide a non-surgical, non-invasive advanced anti-aging, healing and facial rejuvenation therapy with dramatic results visible after the first treatment. No down-time required!

WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?

Microdermabrasion is a gentle yet deep exfoliation that produces four types of effects:

1) A direct action of smoothing the skin by eliminating the residues from dead cells.

2) The action of the MAVISKIN microdermabrasion and light-therapy allows for deeper and more effective penetration of skin product.

3) The MAVISKIN stimulates metabolic processes resulting in a firmer, more contoured and supple complexion.

4) The microdermabrasion component uses a vibration technology on the surface of the skin allowing for lymphatic massage, thereby stimulating detoxification and drainage of toxins from the dermal layer. By removing the toxic impurities from the dermis, more debris is removed and more oxygen and nutrients can infiltrate the skin to stimulate healing of acne blemishes, blackheads and scars, rosacea, skin pigmentation, sun damaged skin and improve the tone and texture of the skin. The same process improves the metabolic effects of skin cells allowing for increased collagen production, thereby reversing the aging process and resulting in a dramatic reduction in the appearance of pores, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.

Unlike other mircodermabrasion technologies, the MAVISKIN employs a SAPPHIRE microdermabrasion allowing for a painless and surprisingly pleasant and relaxing experience. In addition, the MAVISKIN uses a unique LED-light attachment allowing for simultaneous light therapy application during the microderm exfoliation, which tremendously enhances the anti-aging and healing benefits of the treatment.

LED PHOTOFACIAL THERAPY

WHAT IS LED PHOTOFACIAL THERAPY?

LED Photofacial therapy stimulates cellular regeneration and collagen production and is applied in a step-by-step process after mircodermabrasion. It is the final step in ultimate anti-aging and healing capability, producing a smooth, radiant, clear and glowing complexion.
The MAVISKIN uses only cold laser technology, which generates a low power “cold” energy which does not cause thermal changes in tissue. It applies a stimulative effect rather than a destructive one. Hot lasers are used only in the medical field because of their ability to cause thermal changes and potentially destroy tissue. Cold Laser is safe even if used for long periods of time. It combines electric current (high frequency) and light energy with the exclusive feature of selective ionization on products with biochemical and photo energy properties. A specific phyto-active ingredient will be chosen for your specific skin type and skin care needs (acne, rosacea, anti-aging, scars, age spots, stretch marks or cellulite).

Depending on the desired outcome, a specific wavelength of photo-stimulation will be selected to further customize your treatment:

Red and Blue Cold Laser: particularly effective for reducing eye bags, dark circles and creating an eye lift; wrinkles, fine lines, skin firming for face and neck; acne blemishes, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema; congested skin, scars, skin pigmentation, age spots; alopecia/hair loss; breast lifting and firming.

Green Cold Laser: stimulates venous and lymphatic return in circulation and is particularly effective in the treatment of tendon or ligament sprains, strains, swelling and other sports injuries or localized areas of inflammation (i.e. acute injuries or chronic arthritis). It is also used in areas of impaired circulation (i.e. lower legs, around the ankles) commonly seen in individuals suffering with complications of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and neurological disorders.

Triple-Head Cold Laser Device: the polychromatic modulated light projects different wavelengths of the visible spectrum, producing a very strong photo-stimulation penetrating deep into the dermal layer to stimulate the physiological bio-chemical and enzymatic reactions that are used for its anti-cellulite abilities, immediate lifting, smoothing and firming capacity and for its ability to diminish the appearance of stretch marks and stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin.

ACNE & BLACKHEADS

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

The results obtained are instantly visible from the first treatment, with progressive improvement as cellular tissues renew at overnight. Treatments are typically performed 1x/week for the first 4-6 treatments and maintenance is recommended every 4-8weeks depending on your desired outcome and goal of treatment. A typical treatment session is for 60 minutes.

CAN THE TREATMENTS BE APPLIED ELSEWHERE ON THE BODY?

YES! The microdermabrasion and Photofacial therapy coupled with the cold laser application are commonly used in our clinic as a non-invasive treatment for unwanted cellulite and stretch marks. The treatments can be coupled with mesotherapy techniques (visit the “Meso-Lipo Therapy” link on our website), for quicker and even more dramatic results. Commonly treated areas for cellulite and stretch marks include the back and front of thighs, above the knees, gluteal area and abdomen.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Because the MAVISKIN does not utilize crystals or thermal laser/heat application, and because each treatment is customized to suit your individual skin care needs and desired therapeutic outcome, there are no side effects to treatment and it is safe for all skin types including fragile and sensitive skin. Depending on your skin type, a different crystal grit plate will be chosen by the technician. Minor redness may persist for 2-6 hours post treatment depending on your degree of skin sensitivity. Immediately after a session, most of our clients will continue on with their day with a simply radiant and glowing complexion, without any down-time at all!

Use of sunscreen post treatment and between treatments is highly recommended and should be a part of your daily skin care routine (with or without treatment) to prevent damage from harmful UVB and UVA rays. While receiving treatments, we advise you to avoid or minimize direct sunlight exposure as much as possible to optimize your results. Your technician may make additional recommendations for at-home skin care maintenance between treatments.

The entire treatment is a very pleasant, relaxing and rejuvenating experience – don’t be surprised if you fall asleep during a session!
