Laser Genesis treats the mid skin layer. Adding the extra Laser Genesis on top of Titan promotes more deep heating of the skin for potentially better results.

Both of these treatments can be used on tanned and dark skins, are comfortable, and carry no down time. You can return to work straight away!

Combination treatments perform better

There are multiple technologies available at Skinfresh Clinic that have transformed the cosmetic industry - and our clients!

At Skinfresh Clinic, we cater for clients that want results without significant down-time, discomfort or cost.

You want to be able to just walk in and walk out after a treatment and get results.

Not only that, but many of our treatments can give results on any skin type, even very dark and tanned skin!

Before committing to a course of treatments, you want to know that you are not wasting your time or money. We have a detailed skin analysis system. Visia™ which is the gold standard skin analysis system in the world and is used in scientific studies internationally to accurately assess skin treatment results. Now you can tell if the treatment has worked - for sure!

Titan is a state of the art treatment that tightens faces, jowls, necks, tummies and even arms and sagging knees! This treatment is comfortable, with no downtime.

Laser Genesis for many, feels like lying in the sunshine and relaxing. It works on redness, pores, scars, deep wrinkles, acne and skin laxity that is completely comfortable and requires absolutely no downtime - you return to work straight away! Imagine a treatment that does all of the above and leaves you feeling relaxed!

Dysport, the UK brand of Botulinum Toxin, is a simple effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles that creates a youthful relaxed appearance. In a recent international study, Dysport lasted longer for crows feet than the other brand.

Platelet rich plasma is a technology that we have had in the clinic for 10 years! The activated platelets release growth factors that grow anything that is deficient in the skin, including collagen and blood vessels. This may well be helpful in ultimately hydrating the skin because of the increase in collagen. Its great for tightening up sagging necks!

Now you can combine Platelet Rich Plasma with Dermapen or you can have Dermapen alone. This treatment is mostly comfortable. It is great for texture, pores, tightening and is a great combination mate with other treatments to enhance results. It leaves the skin pink for a day, but can be easily covered with make up. Combinations give potential for enhanced results over fewer treatments in total. At Skinfresh Clinic, we know that results can be enhanced by combining treatments - better than using one treatment type alone.

Examples are...

  • Titan plus laser genesis may increase tightening and collagen production.
  • Laser Genesis plus Limelight IPL (Photofacial) can improve Acne, redness and Rosacea in fewer treatments.

Tighten the neck with any , or preferably as many of the following treatments as you can - Titan, Laser Genesis, Platelet rich plasma, Dermapen.

The potential is endless... and mostly with very little pain and very little or no down time... what more could you ask for!

Results may vary.

TruSculpt 3D and Dr Frances Pitsilis in the News!


Preventing Winter Illness

About 40% of time off work and 30% of school absences are caused by colds. Preventing winter illness will not only make you feel better, but will increase productivity in the economy as well as children's school attendance.

You can help prevent winter illness by eating properly and following a healthy lifestyle. Diet can help you correct nutritional deficiencies and supplement natural substances that are lacking.

Healthy lifestyle choices

One of the sensible lifestyle choices is to go to bed early and be asleep before 10.30pm. Getting enough sleep helps your body to produce melatonin, an antioxidant and replenishing molecule. Regular exercise also helps to increase the number of killer cells in your immune system, cells that combat cancer and viruses.

Lowering stress also helps to promote the immune system, making you less vulnerable to illnesses in general. To manage your stress, you need to get enough sleep and regular exercise. It also helps to think about the way you think - do you tend to be negative? A positive frame of mind helps to combat stress.

Ideally, you should avoid potentially harmful ingredients in your diet, for instance too much coffee, sugar and alcohol. For some people, dairy and gluten are sources of health problems. Make sure you eat lots of vegetables, some fruit and enough protein. The fruit and vegetables help ensure that you ingest the vitamins you need to help your body prevent winter ills.

Vitamins against illness

The major nutrients needed to keep you healthy in winter are Vitamin C, Vitamin D, iron, zinc, selenium and magnesium.

Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and protects other antioxidant agents in the body, including Vitamin A, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids such as Omega 3. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb iron, as well as assist with wound healing, bone and collagen formation, thyroid hormone balance and even provides protection against cancer. On top of this, Vitamin C is an acute antihistamine.

If you take a dose of 200-2000mg daily, it can give you protection against common colds or reduce its severity once you have it. Overall, Vitamin C is helpful to ward off not only common colds, but also flu, hay fever, asthma, shingles, glandular fever, bacterial infections and viral pneumonia.

Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency has reached epidemic proportions worldwide. Some groups run a higher risk of deficiency, including women, the elderly, overweight people, smokers and people with darker skin. Illness, drugs or poor bowel absorption are also factors contributing to deficiency. Most Vitamin D comes from the sun. In New Zealand, people on the South Island are more at risk because they get less intense sunshine.

The main role Vitamin D plays in respiratory illness is that lung function improves when the deficiency is addressed. Vitamin D is associated with improved peak flow in asthmatics. It prevents or at least reduces Influenza A, the most predominant form of flu in winter and one that can cause pandemics. In addition, it acts against pneumoccocal infection (a common cause of pneumonia), A streptococcal infection (the cause of strep throat) and tuberculosis.

Mighty minerals

Taking zinc supplements for 5 months or more has been found to reduce school absences and the need for antibiotics, according to one study. Through its direct anti-viral action, zinc reduces colds, pneumonia and bronchiolitis, while also acting as an antihistamine.

The most common nutrient deficiency in the world is lack of iron, which affects a third to a half of everyone on earth. Studies show that giving anaemic children iron supplements reduces the incidence of upper respiratory infections as well as how long people take to recover from such illnesses. Before you take an iron supplement, it's recommended you first get your blood tested, as having too much iron can also cause health problems.

Magnesium also acts as an antihistamine. It also relieves respiratory illnesses such as asthma by relaxing the airways.

Selenium shortages have been associated with diminished immunity as well as incidence of allergies, asthma, heart disease and cancer. This is an essential trace element naturally found in soil. However, in New Zealand the soil tends to have too little selenium.

Natural supplements

The Echinacea Purpura flower effectively combats the common cold, reducing its incidence and shortening its duration where it does take hold. You can use echinacea as soon as you notice a viral infection starting, or even before the time as a preventative measure. Echinacea may also help with strep throat or bacterial sinusitis. If you are pregnant or breast feeding, echinacea is not recommended. Cancer patients are also cautioned against using echinacea.

The Chinese have been using astragalus for at least 2000 years. Astragalus acts against many viruses, specifically reducing cold and flu. If you have fever or cancer you should avoid using astragalus.

The strongest ingredient in olive leaf extracts is oleuropein. This natural substance is effective against many bacteria, including salmonella, E.Coli and H.Pylori. As far as respiratory illnesses go, oleuropein is known to prevent Influenza A and para-influenza, as well as two common causes of colds, myxovirus and rhinovirus.

Oleuporein counteracts herpes simplex viruses types I and II, Staph Aureus and methicillin-resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA). According to some studies, it even works against the Aids virus.

You can take olive leaf extract at the beginning of an infection to limit its effect. It has not yet been conclusively tested in terms of safety for pregnant or lactating mothers.

The bovine colostrum that cows produce just after birth has been a popular health supplement for thousands of years. Colostrum is rich in nutrients, antibodies, vitamins, minerals and growth factors. In winter, it may help counteract viruses such as influenza and rota by protecting respiratory and gut membranes against infection.
