We have an ever expanding range of clients that come in to see us at Medizen. My blog today is going to give you a general idea of the most popular procedures I do and who’s coming in for them…you might just be surprised!
Also known as Advanced Cosmetic Procedures, Advanced Electrolysis or Blemish Removal. This is personally my favourite treatment to perform at the clinic because you get an instant reaction, my co-workers, however, think I’m just a little morbid!
The procedure is designed to treat a wide array of harmless skin lesions that are not very appealing to look at. The main lesions that people want removing are thread veins, skin tags, xantholasma, and milia. However, this treatment can also treat Seborrhoeic Keratosis, dermatosis papulosa nigra, warts, minor cysts, sebaceous hyperplasia and raised skin around blocked pores.
There is no specific gender or age range with this procedure, I have people from all walks of life with all sorts of lesions in to see me. It is safe to do on any ethnicity age and body area and is popular all through the year.
There is not a massive amount of difference between these 2 devices but you may hear both names when in the clinic. This treatment causes controlled wounds to the skin to stimulate rejuvenation and correct the skin. It can be used to improve general concerns of ageing such as - skin tone and texture, lack of elasticity, open pores and fine lines.
It also has more medical uses for scars, stretch marks and acne scarring.
Generally for the anti-ageing side we see more women ranging from 35-50 but we also have lots of men in for stretch marks, acne scarring and general scars that they feel self-conscious about. The procedure can be performed on any skin type; more mature skin types can be improved but it’s likely they will need something more aggressive such as strong skincare or injectables.
This is a very popular treatment for small areas of hair growth. It is the only treatment that can claim permanent hair removal and can treat any colour and texture of hair.
This treatment, on average, is most popular with clients from the ages of 40-65 as they go through hormonal changes and facial hair growth is very common. I do however also get several men in for areas such as the eyebrows, ears & the top of the cheek to give an even and smooth beard line.
This treatment is fantastic for any ethnicity, age, skin type and can help people suffering with excessive hair growth caused by hormonal problems such as PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).
eTwo is a combination treatment designed to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. It works in the same sort of way that medical needling does to create a controlled wound to the skin. The thing that makes it different is that it’s combined with radio frequency to put heat into the skin. This creates a tightening and rejuvenated effect and can be coupled with the skin tightening treatment to help with the jowl area, crows feet and fine lines on the lower face.
This is most popular with clients from their late 30’s to early 50’s and generally women. We do however have a good mix of women and men who have ‘rejuveneyes’ which is the eTwo eye treatment. This treatment is also suitable for any age, skin type and clients up to the age of 55.
Now this is the treatment for everybody! I have every age, gender, skin type and skin condition in for this medical facial. It’s very relaxing as well as being a fantastic deep cleanse for the skin.
There are 2 options for this treatment in terms of times and price but generally people have the hour ‘Deluxe’ treatment which includes: detox, cleanse and exfoliation, glycolic peel, extraction, antioxidant & hydration infusion and rejuvenating light treatment.
It can be used to treat skin conditions such as acne and rosacea as well as being a fantastic monthly skin maintenance hence why it’s one of our most popular treatments and we have such a large mix of clients coming in for it. It’s safe for any skin type, age and ethnicity.
Many of us have a small amount of pigmentation on our faces from sitting out in the sun slightly longer than we should have. IPL targets pigmentation to draw it out of the skin for a fantastic lightening of the pigment, if not a complete removal!
This treatment is most popular with clients between the ages of 35-60 but is a big mix of men and women. This can treat any pigmentation from bald heads to pigmented hands and is very popular in the winter months.
It can be performed on all ages however is only suitable for Caucasian skins.
Most people have heard of laser hair removal which is generally our busiest treatment. Whether clients want it removed due to embarrassment or to be free from shaving men and women of all ages want to have this treatment done!
Because we have a laser and an IPL we can treat all skin types that have thick black hair which is perfect for reduction with this method.
There is no specific age type for this treatment or even gender but we do tend to have a lot of Asian clients as they genetically tend to have more facial hair.
Main areas for women are lower face, underarms and bikini and for men it’s chest and back.
Miradry is one of my favourite treatments to do because it’s something I have had done myself and has changed my life. Many people in the country suffer with excessive sweating under their arms and have to deal with the daily embarrassment. Miradry uses technology to destroy the sweat glands under the arms to give permanent sweat reduction.
We have just as many males in for this treatment at females however most people do seem to be younger from their early 20’s to late 30’s.
I think the people most commonly thought to come in are ladies in their late 30’s to late 50’s; but take it from someone who knows, we have all sorts of clients from all walks of life and enjoy treating them all!
