Waxing and Tinting

Read more
At Elyssium we offer both mens’ and womens’ waxing to remove unwanted hair from the face and body.  We use a high quality olive oil-based wax that leaves the skin feeling smooth and less irritated than many other cheaper waxes.  For the more sensitive areas of the body, we use a strawberry wax containing titanium dioxide that helps soothe the skin and reduce redness on the face and ‘Brazilian’ bikini area.

Elyssium’s eyebrow shaping specialists have many years of experience and can help you create the ideal shaped and coloured brows.  Our tints for lashes and brows are a natural, low irritant vegetable-based product.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of light-based skin therapy. It is used to improve evenness of skin tone or colour, or as a form of semi-permanent hair removal. When used as a form of hair removal, IPL works by targeting the colour pigment (melanin) in the hairs. This means, however, that white hairs cannot be treated. Dark, coarse hairs on fair skin are most effectively treated and have the best results. Hairs can only be treated when they are actively growing, meaning several sessions are required for full, effective treatment.Read More

Before Care

  • Allow the hair to grow for 4-6 weeks immediately prior to the treatment.
  • It is advisable to shave in between treatments. Resist waxing or plucking for 4 weeks before, as it will interfere with results.
  • Do not use bleach or depilatory creams for at least 4 weeks before treatment.

 

Sessions Required

A course of 6-10 treatments usually needed, at 3-6 week intervals (fair hairs will require extra treatment). Talk to us about our special pre-purchase offers.

Who is it good for?

People with light, fair skin and dark, coarse hair.

After care

  • You may experience mild sunburn like sensations on the treated areas, which will subside within 24 hours. The use of a cool compress can be used to relieve discomfort.
  • It is important that you do not sun bake in between treatments.
  • Avoid hot showers, saunas, spas and exercise for 24 hours.
  • No electrolysis, waxing or plucking to be performed on the area for the duration of your treatments.

Note: Ejection is the process whereby treated, intact hair shafts are moved out and released from the base of the follicle. These hairs are not growing but simply ‘clearing out’ in the first 10 to 14 days.

Electrolysis

Electrolysis is the only treatment that guarantees overall results versus any other hair removal treatment. Regardless of your hair or skin colour electrolysis can prove successful in removing and managing unwanted hair. All parts of the body can be treated with electrolysis. Unlike IPL, this process is effective on dark skin as well as fair, and is successful in removing white hairs. It works by removing individual hairs from the body or face using medical electrolysis devices, which terminate hair growth using heat energy. Electrolysis can cause some discomfort, which is relative to the client’s tolerance and area of treatment.Read More

Who is it good for?

Electrolysis doesn’t target hair pigment the way IPL does, rather it targets the follicle itself. This means people that aren’t good candidates for IPL can still have effective electrolysis treatment as it is perfect for those with darker skin or lighter hair. Highly recommended for stubborn chin/face hair, nipples, belly button/snail trail.

Before Care

Waxing or tweezing prior to treatment can misshape hair follicles and make it more difficult to destroy the follicle.
A consultation is important to discuss the area to be treated and to formulate a treatment plan based on individual needs.

After Care

After electrolysis your skin may be temporarily red, swollen and tender and there is a possibility of spots occurring.
Application of cold compresses is most effective in reducing further irritation and helping skin to recover.
Do not touch or scratch the area treated.
Do not wash or wear makeup on the treated area for 24 hours.
Avoid perfumes or alcohol based products that will dry the skin out.
Avoid excessive sweating directly after treatment.
Wear sunscreen to protect skin from UV rays.
Do not swim in a chlorinated pool for 48 hours after treatment.

Sessions Required

Number of sessions depends on the individual.
It is advisable to return each week or every other week as needed.
Five minutes per session depending on the individual and nature of hair.

Ouch Factor: treatment can be painful depending on pain tolerance, and most patients will need multiple treatments.

LED Light Therapy

This treatment is effective in repairing sun damage, reversing the signs of aging skin or clearing problem skin. LED light therapy produces softer, clearer, more youthful looking skin. It uses LED technology to promote collagen production in the skin and increase skin cell regeneration. The process can immediately result in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles,age spots, sun damage, redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. It produces incredible results and is completely painless.Read More

Red Light

Excellent for those concerned with signs of aging and fine lines.

Green Light

Helps with skin discolouration as it targets melanocytes (melanin producing cells located in the bottom layer of the skin’s epidermis). It will also prevent excess melanin and breaks up the melanin clusters. Green light also helps with healing damaged skin and combating redness/rosacea.

Blue Light

Works by killing the bacteria deep in the skin that is responsible for acne.

Who is it good for?

Patients with aged skin including wrinkles, or problem skin including acne, pigmentation or rosacea. Clinical results for LED skin treatment have been excellent with clients reporting overall lifting and hydration of the skin, improvement in skin tone and texture, evening out pigmentation, smoothing
of fine lines and wrinkles. Best results are achieved by combining LED with chemical peeling and Sonophoresis.

After care

There is no specific after care for LED light therapy, however basic ongoing skin care is important, such as applying sunscreen to prevent further skin damage from the sun. General, everyday skin care with application of vitamin A and C will work to maintain and improve on results.

Sessions Required

For best results a course of 10 treatments twice a week and followed by a regular treatment once every 4 – 6 weeks. Talk to us about our special pre-purchase offers.

IPL Skin Rejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of light-based skin therapy. It is used to improve evenness of
skin tone or colour, or as a form of permanent hair removal. IPL treatment uses a beam of many different wavelengths of light to break down the accumulated spots of melanin, reddened areas and the blood, which has leaked out of broken capillaries.Read More

How does it work?

Changes in the skin due to sun damage are called Dyschromias, which can include irregular brown and red discoloration, pigment and blood vessels. Using a safe, Square Intense Pulsed Light on a small area of the skin, these particular skin issues can be effectively corrected, working as a non-invasive, non-surgical face-lift.
The light is absorbed into targeted cells and causes safe damage to that area. This damage induces a wound-healing response where the skin begins to rapidly produce new skin cells to replace the old, damaged patches. IPL is extremely effective due to the high frequency and intensity of the light. The treatment requires a number of sessions, which are dependent on the individual and the nature of their skin.

Outcomes

  • Evens out skin tone and colour.
  • Brightens the skin and gives a youthful glow.
  • Improvement in the texture of the skin.

Who is it good for?

Anyone with light skin who has sun damage, broken capillaries or laxity in their skin.

Sessions Required

A course of 6 is recommended to achieve best results. Talk to us about out special pre-purchase offers.

Before Care

  • You cannot be treated if you have had UV exposure from the sun or sun bed in the past 4-6 weeks.
  • You must cover yourself well with clothing, hats and sunblock to prevent extra activity of the skin cells.
  • IPL cannot be performed for at least 2 weeks after a fake tan application.
  • Do not use bleach or depilatory creams for at least a week before treatment.

After Care

  • No sun exposure or UV exposure of sun beds.
  • Wear sun block to protect the skin from future sun damage.
  • Gentle cleansers and moisturizers are advised.
  • No depilatory, AHA, glycolic or salicylic creams.
  • No hot baths or showers – tepid water only.
  • No heat treatments e.g. sauna.
  • No swimming in chlorinated pools or spa baths.
  • No perfumes, highly perfumed soaps or lotions, or deodorant if underarms treated.
  • Do not rub scratch or peel the skin.

Recovery

After treatment you will have a healthy glow, similar to that produced by a vigorous workout. Pigmented areas will turn brown after the treatment, and the body will then break down the melanin, which has been released. Recovery time up can be up to 3 weeks, dependent on the patient and area of body treated. For the face, recovery time is only 8-14 days. Temporary discoloration will occur for a few days after the procedure and will flake off slowly. Initially after treatment, it feels like sunburn and skin may become itchy, red or swollen, all of which can
be covered with make up directly after treatment. Overall, downtime for IPL is very minimal.

Sonophoresis

This treatment is a fast trans-dermal delivery of active ingredients used to treat aesthetic skin conditions. Sonophoresis is used in conjunction with other treatments such as peels, facials and LED light therapy. It uses vibration to create channels between skin cells for serums to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, known as trans-dermal delivery. Many skin products have ingredients that are absorbed through the skin; Sonophoresis increases this absorption rate by up to 1000 times depending on the substance being penetrated into the skin.Read More

Who is it good for?

Sonophoresis facials can be customised to accommodate a range of skin types and conditions. It can treat those who have signs of aging, dehydrated skin, photo damage, pigmentation, poor skin texture and acne. It can also be successfully used on the neck and décolletage area, hands, arms, back and chest for all skin types including sensitive and rosacea skin.

Sessions Required

Dependent on the individual. Talk to us about our special pre-purchase offers.

 

Cosmetic Skin Needling

Skin needling presents a revolutionary approach by which normal collagen production is stimulated to smoothen the skin, regenerate tissue, improve acne scaring, help to thicken thin skin and treat fine lines and wrinkles, without causing permanent damage to the epidermis. Micro needling causes microscopic breaks in the blood vessels immediately below the surface layer of the skin. Blood platelets are then released which then in turn release a cascade of growth hormone factors, these promote the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Baby cells are created with no damage or memory.Read More

It is essential for optimum results to prepare the
skin with Environ Vitamin A and C products. These products are available in a few different combinations depending on clients individual needs.
