Triple Treat PackageHarness the power of Combination therapies with the ... TRIPLE TREAT - the ultimate skin tightening and rejuvenation package.

These days everyone wants the best results quickly with no down time or discomfort.

We can actually design this for you now because 1+1=3 when it comes to combining more than one treatment to work on the skin.

Skinfresh has created the Triple Treat Skin tightening and Rejuvenation package to give you what you have always wanted.

The ultimate tightening and collagen-producing package along with pigment reduction with 3 combination treatments for any skin type!

The Triple Treat consists of:

  1. Titan®
  2. Laser Genesis
  3. Vampire® facial plus... all on the same day.

Benefits of the Triple Treat Package:

  • Skin tightening and collagen production most boosted by all 3 treatments
  • Skin texture is also highly enhanced
  • Brown and red pigment is improved
  • Any skin type including the darkest skins
  • Affordability - receive 3 treatments for a package price
  • Comfortable treatments
  • Walk in - walk out procedure and return to work immediately with makeup
  • Improvement in confidence and overall appearance

The best situations to use the Triple Treat package in are:

  • Skin texture and tightening are a major issue
  • Comfortable treatments with very little down time are important
  • Results required in medium term with long term benefits to come also

Who should not have this done:

  • None of these treatments work well in smokers or those who are run down, unwell, or stressed as they rely on internal health being great.
  • Titan® does not work well in those who have sun damaged skin. If this is you, only have Laser Genesis + Vampire® Facial plus which will still work well.
  • Patient selection for this treatment is important so check with one of our nurses.

What is involved:


  • The suggested treatment programme starts mid morning and finishes mid afternoon including a lunch break. Avoids peak traffic. Arrive mid morning and have your Titan® plus Laser Genesis performed. Have a lunch break, and return to have your Vampire® Facial plus
  • However, you can start any time of the day, as long as you have a break before your Vampire® Facial plus

  • Vampire® facial plus - skin is pink overnight, but can be covered with make up for the evening outing. Normal make up the next day.

Today's Developed Man - Menaissance Man

Today's man is completely assured of himself. No longer is he struggling to come to terms with his place and role in the face of so many changes in our society and the progress of women.

Today's Developed Man - Menaissance Man

Today's man is completely assured of himself. No longer is he struggling to come to terms with his place and role in the face of so many changes in our society and the progress of women.

Todays' man has progressed in his own right. No longer are there terms used like "Metro Sexual", "Sensitive New Age Guy" and the like. Manliness is completely confident and secure in himself and in his persona. He rejects sexism, consumerism, racism, chauvinism, and homophobia.

Man is moving towards responsible behaviour, dressing sharp, getting barbershop haircuts and moral living. He gets a manicure and facials if he feels like it without any issues.

He is so completely down to earth and secure in himself that he is happy to open a door - not just for a woman, for anyone! This is the renaissance of today's man - Menaissance.

It is therefore not surprising to find todays man visiting Skinfresh. If he wants to look fresher, better and healthier, why not do it because he wants to. He is also well aware of the fact that more attractive people get the job, do more deals and are generally more successful in life.

He wants to look natural and seeks easy, comfortable and no down-time treatments. He understands that major surgical procedures carry higher risk as well as cost, and cost more than just the procedure - its time lost from work that must also be counted.

Looking good goes hand in hand with looking after yourself, looking good and feeling good.

With Hollywood stars like Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt leading the trend, our male clients discuss with us regularly - wrinkles, sagging skin, blotchy and sun damaged ageing skin, or undertake a lunchtime procedure like wrinkle treatments or the lunchtime facelift/ stronger jawline.

The Importance of Vitamin C - Ascorbic Acid

Everyone knows about Vitamin C. If you don't get enough fruit and vegetables in your diet, you could get a Vitamin C deficiency and get Scurvy. Captain Cook didn't know about Vitamin C at the time, but he discovered that giving his sailors cabbage and limes prevented the disease - that's why they called Englishmen 'Limeys'.

Well, Scurvy exists today in our community. You may be surprised, but there are many people who can't afford fresh fruit and vegetables, so they fill up on bread and potatoes and inexpensive foods. As a result, they may find themselves getting symptoms like bleeding gums, red dots on the skin that don't go away (doctors call them petechiae), wounds that don't heal or break down.

In addition to not getting enough from food, humans, gorillas, fruit bats and guinea pigs can't make their own Vitamin C in response to stress like other animals can - I bet you didn't know that!

These days we are all more stressed. There is probably a case to be made for a regular dose of vitamin C, especially during times of stress like overwork, illness, surgery etc. You see, animals like chimpanzees make up to 9000mg Vitamin C in response to stress and a dog can make up to 12,000mg!

I think a normal dose for an adult with a busy life may be around 1000mg. If you are quite stressed, perhaps up to 3000mg. But if you are really sick, you might need 6000mg. Watch out because too much will give you runny bowels.

Below is a list of all the things vitamin C is important for.

Main actions and functions

  • Prevent scurvy
  • Antioxidant and free radical scavenger
  • Protests other antioxidants- Vitamins E,A,Essential Fatty acids -Omega 3
  • Helps absorption of iron
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Production of Collagen, Neurotransmitters, corticosteroids, Carnitine
  • Formation of Tyrosine which is a precursor to Dopamine neurotransmitter and thyroid hormone
  • Bone formation
  • Wound healing
  • Hydroxylation of proline, tryptophan therefore helps in collagen production
  • Metabolism of cholesterol
  • Energy release from Fatty deposits
  • Modulation of iron and copper absorption and prevents their oxidation
  • Reduction of nitrosamine formation in the stomach - helps prevent cancer
  • Formation of thyroid hormone
  • Antihistamine
  • Immunoglobulin synthesis
  • Cell mediated immunity
  • Activation of folic to folinic acid
  • Anti cancer effects
  • Synthesis of interferon
  • An anti-carcinogenic effect
  • A selective cytotoxic (cancer killing) effect.

The dose of vitamin C found in research to prevent the common cold and reduce its severity is 200-2000mg taken daily.
