Cosmetics

We recommend glo-minerals, a mineral makeup system that contains no perfumes or chemical dyes. They are 100% talc-free and non-comedogenic allowing the skin to breathe, which helps to inhibit the potential for bacteria to become trapped in pores. They have a blend of powerful antioxidants including vitamins A, C, E and green tea extract that provide nutrients that are vital for maintaining the health of your skin while protecting it from further damage with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Anti-inflammatory ingredients help to improve the appearance and conditions of sensitive skin. We can colour match your skin from over 20 colours available. Other products in the line are also suitable for clients with rosacea.

LED Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy treatments are like a multivitamin for skin cells.   Each colour in the LED output is measurably pure and corresponds with a specific therapeutic action. Custom protocols are designed for your individual skin concern whether you have diffuse redness or mild, moderate, or more severe rosacea.

Advanced Facials

Our focus is the penetration of active molecules in the skin which is vastly different than most skin therapists.  We use the patented technology specifically designed for Environ skin care treatments.  This will take your treatments to the next level.  This innovative system helps with the penetration of active vitamins and essential growth factors into the skin and provides fast and effective results.  It has been used successfully on red and sensitive skin types.  Our advanced facials assist in helping to replenish the skins moisture barrier, soothe, repair, and strengthen the skin resulting in an appearance of smoother, softer, less red looking skin.

Laser Genesis

This gentle non-invasive laser treatment helps to reduce the redness, “pimples” and flushing from rosacea.  Laser Genesis penetrates into the dermis to stimulate new collagen production targeting the vessels below the skin’s surface decreasing diffuse redness.  Additionally, it helps to improve pore size, reduces fine lines, smooths out scars and uneven skin texture!  A series of treatments are recommended as your skin improves following each treatment.  Clients who have had IPL in the past find this treatment very comfortable and effective. It is ideal for clients that have an active lifestyle and don’t want downtime.  Maintenance treatments are recommended to keep rosacea under control.  Add LED Light Therapy post treatment.

IPL

IPL also known as Intense Pulse Light or Photofacial helps to improve the appearance of rosacea by decreasing redness and small vessels. With all the new technologies out there, this tried and true treatment has staying power for rejuvenation as its main targets are redness, pigment and collagen. The treatment offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging.  This non-invasive treatment uses broad spectrum light to treat the face, neck, chest and hands. The treated area may be slightly red and mildly swollen depending on your skin condition.  A series of treatments are usually needed to see results. IPL also stimulates collagen production; it gives an instant boost to the skin, looks more vibrant, radiant and rejuvenated.  Client’s skin looks younger and tighter after treatments.  Maintenance treatments are recommended to keep rosacea under control.  Add LED Light Therapy post treatment.

Vein Therapy

By combining the ideal laser wavelength, the Nd:YAG laser targets and coagulates unwanted blood vessels eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Clients find that one or two treatments are sufficient.  However, depending on area, the number, colour and size of the vessels being treated, more treatments may be needed.
