We spoke to her about the various treatments on offer:
– Talk us through the various treatments you offer, here at Studio Nine?
Susanne: We offer all aesthetic treatments, expect for botox and fillers. Those need to be administered by a Doctor, and I’m not a doctor, but rather an aesthetic specialist.
Laser Treatments: We can do these treatments for permanent hair reduction on all parts of the body. This hair reduction will give you about an 85% – 90% reduction of hair. There is no such thing as a 100% reduction, you do not get that. Underarms for a lady, for example, you would get about 90% hair reduction/removal, but you will have a few follicles that have fine hairs still sprouting, but not really visible. 100% hair removal is not possible.
There are many determining factors to the amount of treatments, which is why the initial consultation is so important.
Skin Rejuvenation: This treatment kick-starts the cells awake to produce collagen and start the process of repairing and regenerating. With skin rejuvenation, we can treat acne because of the anti septic and anti bacterial effect of the treatment, where it kills acne directly on site. We can treat vesicular legions, acne legions and broken capillaries, through the heat that is generated by the laser that coagulates and collapses the capillary feed and absorbs it back into the body. This is a natural process in the body.
We also do all the major peels, ranging from the superficial to the deep peels. Peels are a controlled damage of the upper layers of the skin to kick-start the skin’s repair mechanisms back into effect, in order to retard the age processing by the skin’s production of new cells. Peels assist in evening out skin pigmentation. Peels can also reduce scarring, by removing the top layer of skin, and resurfacing from within, to make it (the scar) look less visible.
We also do micro needling. That is, a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Other treatments include; permanent make-up; and corrective make up procedures. Tattoo removal services using the chemical attraction process, which yields better results than the laser procedure, are also available at the salon.
– I’ve decided that I’d like some treatments; what’s the first step?
A full consultation is the first step in making any decision about cosmetic treatment, and where you can receive professional advice about the procedures available, and what is right for you. As part of your consultation, Susanne will discuss everything you need to know about the procedure, so you can make an informed decision about whether to go ahead. This will include information about the procedure itself, any preparation you may need to do in advance, the after-care you will need, and the recovery process, if applicable.
