Forget me not

Forget me not

Life can be demanding and the signs not only show on your face, but on your body as well.

Life can be demanding and the signs not only show on your face, but on your body as well. Many women unfortunately forget that a youthful appearance is not only judged upon the condition of the face. Skin & Body Renewal and Oasis Spa offers you a variety of specialised medical treatments as well as pampering packages.

EYES

Some say ‘the eyes are the window to your soul’. Transform your stressed, tired, baggy eyes into a smoother, younger and brighter look. The delicate skin below the eyes is thin and it does not contain the same amount of oil glands like the rest of the body. It is therefore one of the first areas of the face to show age-related changes. The skin around the eye gets dry and the padding over the orbital bone reduced, causing the skin of the lower eyelid to be pressed on the orbital bone and excess skin to be formed. This results in the appearance of prominent eye bags and the development of crow’s feet. These changes are a constant reminder of the speed at which we age and can dampen an otherwise youthful appearance.

Treatment tips

  • Carboxytherapy for total eye rejuvenation
  • Filler for dark circles under the eyes
  • Pearl Fusion Overlay to firm up eyelids and improve crows feet
  • Eyebrow and eyelash tinting and shaping to frame your newly rejuvenated eyes
  • Permanent Make-up if you prefer something more permanent
  • Eyelash extensions for some extra flirt

NECK & DECOLLETE

Skin on the décolleté and neck are the first areas of the body to show signs of ageing.

Ageing skin on the décolleté is associated with a range of cosmetic concerns from vertical wrinkling , actinic bronzing ( permanently bronzed skin), age spots or splotchy pigmentation due to dilated blood vessels and capillaries ; all leading to an overall uneven tone. Sun damage is the most profound factor in development of ageing of the décolleté resulting in fine textural lines scattered over the surface.

Sun damage together with prolonged perfume application is the most profound factor in development of ageing of the neck. Signs of an ageing neck are: horizontal wrinkles, actinic bronzing (permanently bronzed skin), reddened skin (poikiloderma), age spots, and the development of vertical neck bands, loose sagging skin, loss of a good sharp neck angle and the development of a double chin or turkey neck. Fine textural lines scattered over the surface are partly due to the loss of collagen's integrity.

Treatment tips:

  • Acutip/Limelight IPL laser for sunspots on décolleté
  • Yellow peel for uneven texture, hyperpigmentation and discolouration on both the neck and décolleté
  • Mesotherapy injections to tighten skin and stimulate collagen

HANDS

Our hands do just about everything and since our hands are exposed to these outside factors most of the time, it results in visible signs of ageing more than other areas of our body. These ageing signs include age spots, thinning skin, enlarged veins and a bony appearance. The hands are usually ignored in the average woman's skin care regimen and thus give our age away before our faces do.

Treatment tips:

  • Carboxytherapy Hand Rejuvenation
  • Glycopeel for hands
  • Mesotherapy injections
  • Filler to instantly add volume and plumpness to the back of your hands
  • Laser genesis and Carboxytherapy to increase collagen and tighten skin
  • Limelight for sunspots
  • Deluxe manicure with a nourishing hand and forearm massage.
  • Gel nails in the colour of your choice to finish off your beautiful hands.

BACK

The back is the most forgotten part of the body, because we don’t see it in the mirror every day. One of the main concerns is back acne, whether it is small bumps or severe acne.

The two main causes of back acne are blockage of the pores and bacterial growth. Oil and cells get trapped below the surface of the skin, creating a growth medium for the bacteria. White cells migrate to the site to fight the bacteria, in turn releasing chemicals that lead to swelling, redness and further attraction of white cells (inflammation). The result is a dilated pore, filled with white cells, inflammatory and anti-inflammatory chemicals and bacteria. This is the content of the acne pimple.

Treatment tips: •Glycopeel to soften and exfoliate your skin •Deep cleanse to get rid of bacteria •Extraction peel to unblock pores and reduce bacteria and excess oil

ELBOWS AND KNEES

Ordinary dry skin (xerosis) usually isn't serious, but it can be uncomfortable and unsightly, turning plump cells into shrivelled ones and creating fine lines and wrinkles Fortunately, most dry skin results from environmental factors that can be wholly or partially controlled.

Treatment tips: •Yellow peel for dry and uneven skin •Home care tips include: - Switch to a light cleansing cream rather than a soap - Creams containing the following skin care ingredients that moisturise and hydrate the skin should be applied immediately after cleansing/bathing to help seal in the moisture: ajuga turkestanica, aloe vera, apricot kernel oil, borage seed oil, canola oil, ceramide, cholestrol, colloidal oatmeal, dexpanthenol, dimethicone, evening primrose oil, glycerin, jojoba oil, macadamia nut oil, olive oil, safflower oil and shea butter. - Avoid the following ingredients that dry out skin: alcohol if it is listed among first seven ingredients, cleansers that foam vigorously, fragrance.

LEGS

By definition the leg is ‘the entire lower extremity or limb of the human body, including the foot, thigh and even the hip or gluteal region. Legs are used for standing, walking, jumping, running, kicking, and similar activities, and constitute a significant portion of a person's mass’.

However legs mean much more to Western culture than what it was made for. Toned, tanned, flawless legs are sometimes perceived as a sign of youthfulness and are considered to be one of the most attractive parts of a person’s body.

Treatment tips:

  • Mela M peel (done by a doctor) for disseminated sun spots
  • Glycopeel for general rejuvenation
  • Laser Vein Removal for unwanted spider veins

Treatment tips:

  • Deluxe Pedicure with a nourishing foot massage
  • Glycopeel rejuvenate and exfoliate feet
  • Gel toe nails to finish off your new look
