In This Edition
“And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest”
Percy Bysshe Shelley – The Sensitive Plant
Spring is in the air, the trees blossom, as does the sunshine in our souls. Out come our pretty floral dresses and so we can glow it’s time to take off that wintery skin buildup.

Treatment of the month – Deep Sea Peel
We have a wonderful treatment for you this month that will penetrate your skin to bring you a Super Fresh Spring Glow! The Deep Sea Peel is a herbal non-acid peel which penetrates to the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate deep changes. Utilising the healing power of the ocean, the Deep Sea Peel is perfect for thickened leathery and winter built up skin, mild acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and stretch marks. It also helps to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles blemishes and photodamage; and the best part about this peel, is that it is suitable for all skin types!
The Deep Sea Peel effect is directly related to the level of absorption, which is maximized through circular massage movements; the longer and deeper the massage, the deeper the peel penetration. So, by causing a healing reaction in the skin, collagen production is dramatically stimulated and rapid natural exfoliation is achieved to remove layers of built up dead skin cell over the first few days post treatment. This leaves your skin smoother, brighter and more hydrated by revealing fresh and healthy skin underneath. As this is an intensive resurfacing treatment, one peel may be all that is needed to achieve the desired results.
Clients who are prone to hyperpigmentation, we recommend prepping with Cosmedix Simply Brilliant for 2 weeks prior to the treatment.
With all peels, we recommend you apply sunscreen and use makeup with SPF. Please note this is a medium depth peel so you will get shedding of the skin for approx 1 week.
Injectable of the month – Deep Skin Hydration
Look forward to a healthy glow and lasting deep skin hydration with Deep Hydration Skinbooster filler treatments; creating luminous skin in a natural way by gently and naturally smoothening the skin from the inside. Hyaluronic acid is one of the main components of the skin that helps give it a radiant look; it works by increasing the hydration within the skin to provide lasting moisture and improve the skin’s surface by injecting long-lasting hyaluronic acid right underneath the skin, to restore the hydrobalance, and improve the structure, firmness and elasticity of the skin.
As we age the skin’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases and can result in drier, rougher and thinner skin with a dull complexion. Other factors, including diet and over exposure to the sun may also contribute to dry skin lacking a youthful complexion. Skinboosters filler treatments can be used to improve quality not only in the face but also on hands, neck, lips, décolletage and in acne-scarred skin. After course of 2x treatments, one maintenance treatment is performed once – twice per year.
Deep Skin Hydration Filler 2x session $990
Single maintenance session $490
