Botox treatments are performed by Dr Adelle Sterley at DermaPulse Medical Aesthetics & Laser Clinic in Somerset West.

Botox gives the patient a relaxed natural expression and really helps achieve the natural look that people now look for. (*)
Carboxytherapy infuses medical grade CO 2 just beneath the skin’s surface; the body interprets this as an oxygen deficit and responds by increasing blood flow and growth factors such as VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor) for example encourages production of new blood vessels. This provides a surge of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area and improves circulation, resulting in cell restoration. Increased oxygen concentration also improves the water retention or oedema in the area. (*)
Typically, on the face 4 to 6 treatments of Carboxytherapy sessions are required. Clients have a 30 minute session every 2 to 4 weeks and each treatment is accumulative. Maintaining beauty isn't a sprint-it's a marathon. Rather than waiting until their problems are bothersome again, patients must appreciate that maintenance goes a long way and a touch up session every 6 to 8 months should maintain results. Due to no down time needed after such a treatment, it is safe to do whenever it is convenient for the patient. (*)
Chemical peels are one of the most researched treatments for correcting skin imperfections and achieving visible results. Peels have proven to be very effective in rectifying damage and renewing skin. Chemical peel formulations penetrate the skin and break the bonds between the layers, so the top layers will start peeling off. This stimulates new healthy cell production. The type of peel and its concentration will determine how deep it penetrates. Our expertly trained and trusted therapists will carefully assess your skin first, to determine the right peel and concentration for your individual skin.
Chemical peels effectively treats imperfections, damaged skin, improves skin tone and texture and allow new skin to grow.
The NeoStrata Skin Rejuvenation System is a glycolic acid peel system performed at DermaPulse Medical Aesthetics & Laser Clinic in Somerset West.

There is no significant pain or discomfort or need for anaesthesia.
It takes usually 4-6 treatments at three to four week intervals to achieve the desired effect
All body areas appear to respond well to treatment with glycolic acid; however, the arms, hands, neck and chest all improve at a slower rate than the face.
The chemical peel is one of the most honest skincare treatments around. It doesn’t hide behind fancy name. It is what it says: a chemical solution that harnesses your body’s natural processes of renewal, which can largely be summed up as “discard old skin cells to make space for new ones.” In other words it causes the skin to peel so that the new skin can grow in its place.
The idea of peeling away small amounts of skin might sound scary initially, but chemical peels are one of the most common treatments for correcting skin and achieving visible results – especially in winter, when skin needs a bit of a lift – simply because they have proven so very effective in rectifying damage and renewing skin. (*)
TCA stands for trichloroacetic acid and is a common agent used for chemical peeling, one type of facial resurfacing. It comes in varying concentrations, allowing for varying depths of peeling (depending on the concentration). The downtime and recovery can range from a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength of the peel. The choice of peel depends on each patient’s skin type and specific problem. (*)

Clinically proven, safe and effective:
Ellipse laser hair removal treatment offers clinically-proven, safe and effective long-term removal of unwanted hair.
How does the Ellipse Laser hair removal treatment work?
To achieve long lasting results, it is necessary to target the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Controlled pulses of light penetrate the epidermis and are absorbed by melanin in the hair contained in the follicle. Melanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which is safely destroyed, making it unable to produce a new hair.
The visible light produced by our Ellipse laser system is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle.
Laser hair removal is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine. (*)
A large number of men and women all over the world suffer from vascular lesion disorders. These can be of various types, from facial veins (sometimes called spider veins or broken veins) to large Port Wine Stains.
Some lesions are present from birth, while others develop with age, or as the result of environmental damage (such as sun damage). Our Ellipse laser offers an effective treatment for vascular lesions.
How does our Ellipse Laser treatment for vascular lesions work?
The laser treatment works by directing well controlled pulses of light into the upper skin. The light is absorbed by one of the body's own natural substances - haemoglobin – contained in the red blood cells. Haemoglobin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the walls of the blood vessels, which are damaged and removed by the body's own defence mechanism.
The visible light produced by the laser is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and right amount of energy to destroy the vessel.
It is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine. (*)
Our laser treatments offer long-term removal of sun damage and pigmented lesions in the upper layer of skin.
How does our Ellipse Laser treatment for photo-rejuvenation work?
Ellipse treatment works by directing pulses of light into the epidermis. The light is absorbed by melanin which is concentrated in the pigmented lesions.
Melanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the keratinocyte in which the excess pigmentation is stored.
The visible light produced by the laser is carefully controlled to produce the correct pulse length and wavelengths energy to destroy the target without damaging surrounding tissue.
Photo rejuvenation is a quick and simple treatment that does not interfere with your normal daily routine, repairing sun-damage found on the face, neck, chest and hands. (*)

Microblading, also known as microstroking, is an advanced brow embroidery technique whereby a superfine row of needles is used to create thin, hair like marks on the skin, which can last up to 18 months.
It is ideal for creating a very full and realistic looking brow, and is becoming an increasingly popular industry method.
It is quite similar to hair stroke cosmetic tattoo using the machine method, however the strokes are finer, and are not implanted as deeply in the skin. Therefore, cosmetic tattoo brows completed using microblade or microstroke technique is not as long lasting.
During the treatment, after a brow consultation, the new brow shape outline is penciled on, the brow area is numbed, and then pigment is implanted into the skin using very tiny needle strokes. These are built up into the new shape, and the area gradually made denser with lots of tiny hair strokes, depending on the desired result.
One, two or even three different shades of pigment can be used, creating a single, double or even triple layer brow tattoo, giving a 3D brow effect. (*)

Mesotherapy is a procedure in which multiple tiny injections of active ingredients are delivered into the mesodermal layer of tissue under the skin to reduce wrinkles, improve pigmentation and to boost the radiance of the skin.
To really influence skin physiology positively, we need to deliver scientifically formulated ingredients to specific depths of the skin where “living cells” such as fibroblasts (responsible for collagen) can be stimulated.(*)
Radio frequency skin tightening (RF) is an aesthetic technique that uses RF energy to heat tissue and stimulate sub-dermal collagen production in order to tighten and firm the skin. The technique induces tissue remodeling and production of new collagen to improve lines and wrinkles.(*)

View VISIA brochure Our Complimentary VISIA skin and complexion analysis uses multi-spectral imaging to reveal damage and signs of ageing on and beneath the surface of the skin that is not visible to the human eye. VISIA's computer imaging enables our practitioners to evaluate the health and appearance of your skin based on six criteria that affect your complexion: wrinkles, spots, pores, evenness (skin tone colour variation), porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in your pores), and UV spots caused by overexposure to the sun.
This effective tool allows us to target specific problems before they become apparent.
Photos are taken througout the course of your treatment programme to determine how the skin improves and changes, creating your very own ‘before and after’ record! (*)
Waxing is a form of hair removal which removes the hair from the root. New hair takes longer to grow back in the previously waxed area apposed to shaving, although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week due to some of their hair being on a different growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.
Strip waxing (soft wax) is accomplished by spreading a wax thinly over the skin. A cloth or paper strip is applied and pressed firmly, adhering the strip to the wax and the wax to the skin. The strip is then quickly ripped against the direction of hair growth, as parallel as possible to the skin to avoid trauma to the skin.
Hot wax (as opposed to strip wax), also referred to as hard wax, is applied somewhat thickly and with no cloth or paper strips. The wax then hardens when it cools, thus allowing the easy removal by our trained therapist without the aid of cloths. This waxing method is very beneficial to people who have sensitive skin. Strip-less wax does not adhere to the skin as much as strip wax does, thus making it a good option for sensitive skin. Preferably used on upper lip, bikini and other sensitive areas. (*)
