Skin Concerns


Living the Kiwi dream includes spending a lot of time outdoors. It’s wonderful, but over time sun exposure can cause pigmentation changes including dark spots, freckles and uneven tone.

As we age the appearance of these can become even more pronounced. The good news is that there are treatment options available to help combat these concerns!

MeLine Peel

MeLine is scientifically proven to reduce visible hyperpigmentation by 90-95% within 60-90 days. This includes:

  • Sun-induced hyper pigmentation
  • Post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation
  • Melasma

The MeLine treatment process is described as ‘controlled chemical dermabrasion’ and is a customised process that uses the application of MeLine’s specially formulated peel mask to lift away the top layer of dead skin cells.

The MeLine process includes preparation, peel and a program of prescribed aftercare products to use at home. These products are designed to control pigmentation, decrease melanin production, promote renewal of skin cells, improve sun damage and even out the tone and colour of the skin – helping you maintain your after-peel complexion!

Secret RF Needling

Microneedling treatment with Secret RF is a procedure is designed to activate the skin’s wound healing response, which stimulates collagen production and heals the surrounding skin.

The skin naturally gets rid of old skin cells while replacing them with new, healthy skin cells. The treatment, in particular for treating dark spots and hyperpigmentation, will cause the breakdown of melanin clumps in the skin.

The wound-healing response results in higher-quality skin that has a lighter complexion and is more evenly matched to our natural skin tone.
Secret RF not only helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, but also helps to remodel the skin by reducing pore size, evens skin tone and texture, erases any evidence of acne (scarring) and tightens the skin!

SQT Bio-Needling

A Brand New Revolution In Aesthetic Dermatology

Sponge spicules are a kind of siliceous bio microneedle that is extracted from the freshwater sponge. They can stimulate the dermis of the skin and start skin surface microcirculation. They effectively deliver active ingredients to the dermis layer of skin while also activating the basal skin cells.

They can be seen as a powder to the naked eye and as a sharp rod crystal under the microscope. In just 5 Minutes, 3 – 5 000,000 natural siliceous microneedles are directly introduced into the dermis layer through hand massage

No bleeding, no anaesthetic, and no skin breakage.
