MEDICO-AESTHETIC TREATMENTS
GENIE-TECH FACE TREATMENTS
Take Ten Face Lift
With age, our muscles shrink causing surrounding fat and tissue to sag. This drooping effect on the face, especially, can be very ageing. Rebuilding the ageing muscle mass to its previous state creates a fuller face.. This fuller, healthier look also helps to eliminate many lines and wrinkles.  The Take Ten module lifts brows, enhances cheekbones, lifts the corners of the mouth, fills out upper the lip and sharpens the jaw line.

“Genie can now offer a real alternative to surgery.” Dr R Baxendale B.Sc., Ph.D

COSMECEUTICAL FACIALS
AHA PEELS (for acne, pigmentation, rosacea, lines & wrinkles)
By using glycolic/lactic acids and retinoids the skin’s dead surface layer is gently removed to give a more translucent appearance to the skin. The retinoids and peptides contained in these peels are proven to stimulate collagen and elastin production both of which are essential to long term skin renewal and rejuvenation.
These treatments target a number of skin conditions which are the consequence of imbalances and inflammation in the skin tissue.

  • Jan Marini 40% Glycolic Peel
    This uses skin resurfacing products of glycolic acid to remove the top (epidermal) layer of the skin. As the epidermal layer is removed it encourages collagen remodelling from within.The result is a refined surface texture; pores are minimised, overall translucence is increased and skin tone is improved.  A preparatory two week course of homecare is a prerequesite for this treatment.
  • Jan Marini 40% Glycolic Peel with Papaya Enzyme
    This treatment is suitable for skins that need a gentler resurfacing and those unused to stronger peels but would benefit from a skin refining procedure. The skin’s luminosity is enhanced and looks smoother and more radiant.

Options:

Over 6 weeks: 1 hourly session per week 
Over 3 weeks: 2 hourly sessions per week

PROTEOLYTIC / ENZYME PEEL
This uses skin resurfacing products of papaya enzyme to gently remove the top (epidermal) layer of the skin. The result is a refined surface texture; pores are minimised,overall translucence is increased and skin tone is improved.

  • Jan Marini Papaya Enzyme Peel
    This is most suitable for skins that are unused to peels and for a first time resurfacing treatment.  Papaya enzyme gently removes the top (epidermal) layer of the skin leaving a refined surface texture and as there is little disruption to the integrity of the skin there is no downtime and even makeup could be applied.

Over 6 weeks – 1 hourly session per week

HAIR REMOVAL
Alkaline Wash
The Alkaline Wash is a revolutionary professional treatment designed to reduce fine, downy facial hair, painlessly. This type of hair is very difficult to remove as the hair growth is usually dense and it would be impractical to treat with electrolysis. Large areas of hair can be removed in one treatment. As treatment progresses regrowth becomes finer, slower and more sparse and will require just a few maintenance sessions per year.

Upper lip: 30 minute session
Upper lip and chin: 45 minute session
Full face: 50 minute session

Electrolysis
A permanent hair removal system using heat to progressively stop regrowth.
