FACIAL CREAMS

Collagen cream

This is a hydrous cream using distilled water with micronised collagen. It is to be applied twice daily avoiding the eye areas. Collagen cream acts by hydrating the epidermis, which firms and revitalises by increasing the skins elasticity. The skin is plumped up with new collagen fibres and smoothes lines and wrinkles to improve the skin’s texture & resilience. It also contains vitamin E to repair skin damage caused by modern living.

Bleach and Fade Gel

Hydroquinone is the active ingredient that will actively remove age spots and freckles. Its action is enhanced by the addition of a fruit acid that aids the penetration through the skin so that deep therapy is attained. Vitamins C and E are added for their anti-oxidant and moisturising qualities. Bleach and Fade Gel is applied daily, at bedtime only to the affect areas. Optimal results usually take three months, and treatment is continued until the desired effect is achieved. This medication is available without prescription.

Fruit Acid Peels

There are various formulations of varying strengths depending on the degree of peel required. Although the fruit acids are very mild it must be remembered that they are acids and care must be used in choosing the suitable strength to attain the required depth of skin rejuvenation. Fruit Acid Peels are applied once or twice daily under the strict advice of your medical practitioner or suitably trained cosmetician.
