Aesthetic skincare has grown in popularity lately as clients seek non-surgical treatments with limited or no recovery time but require instant results. Cherie Ramsay offers a range of treatments to treat skin concerns and lesions without causing lots of discomfort and lengthy recovery times.
All aesthetic skincare treatments start with an investigative skin analysis and a prescriptive home care regime to prepare the skin for further treatment.
Chemical peel treatments are renowned for treating all skin concerns, but mostly acne, ageing and pigmentation. The treatment removes the stratum corneum (uppermost layer) through the use of specialised acids safely applied to the desired area.
Micro-needling uses an electronic pen that provides a sped-up puncturing action on the skin, which promotes the healing process for the skin.
Electrolysis is a treatment that helps destroy hair follicles or remove skin lesions. The NHS uses electrolysis; however, minor benign lesions are deemed as cosmetic and therefore, can be removed by a qualified skin therapist.
Electrolysis hair removal
Electrolysis hair removal is a specialised treatment whereby a very fine needle is inserted into an individual hair follicle. Heat is then emitted through the needle and this destroys the area within the hair follicle namely the matrix that causes further growth of hair. Electrolysis can be performed on any skin colour, skin type and hair type. Within the treatment room Sterex Thermolysis, Galvanic and Blend techniques are used. Consultation and skin analysis will be performed of the treatment area and a treatment plan will be discussed and agreed with the client.
The treatment of skin lesions/growths are removed through the use of electrolysis. A very thin needle will emit heat or create a chemical reaction that is used to cauterise or treat the lesion. Consultation and skin analysis will be performed of the treatment area and a treatment plan will be discussed and agreed with the client.
Preparation Face treatment
