Skin Therapy Treatment
Before any treatment program is undertaken, a full analysis is necessary to establish the current health condition of your skin. This is a very important part of the process that enables us to determine the most appropriate course of treatment that will address your skin's concerns.
Your assessment involves a detailed history using our health and dietary questionnaire as well as a dermal imaging profile of your skin.
Our dermal imaging device employs a number of sophisticated scientific techniques to critically analyse key variables in the skin; dryness, premature ageing, oiliness, acne, redness, uneven skin tone and skin texture irregularities. Backed by many years of research, the system utilises a combination of sensors, imaging software and safe, visible natural light illumination to decode the unique tissue characteristics of the skin and provide effective treatment solutions to match each patient's skin health profile. A detailed report will be given to you at the end of your consultation and used prior to your next treatment to monitor improvements in your skin.
Once your assessment has been made a specific treatment program and home care products will be recommended. You are now ready to begin your skin therapy treatments.
Skin Therapy Treatments
The largest organ of the body is our skin. It gives your body shape, it helps regulate body temperature, it breathes, it relays messages to the nervous system about the environment as well as being a valuable tool in revealing metabolic changes and nutritional deficiencies long before they are often diagnosed. We rely on the health of our skin every day, yet we often take it for granted by polluting it with toxic chemicals found in cosmetics, perfumes, and processed foods.
Changes in the condition of the skin can be due to many factors; ageing, sun exposure, illness, poor nutrition, long term use of inappropriate skincare as well as prescribed medications and hormonal changes that occur during a women's life time.
We believe that Skin Therapy is essential to the health of the skin and should not be looked upon as a luxury expense, but as a necessity of your health and wellness plan. So, to keep your skin looking its best urban sense offers a range of therapeutic treatments to help you manage all aspects of your skin's health.
Imagine hydrating steam infusing your skin, a massaging touch moving across your forehead, cheeks and chin, and a customised serum working its way into your skin as the muscles in your face and upper body relax and soften. A therapeutic treatment offers all of these, not to mention the chance to let your mind and body rest. Whilst many clinics offer an extensive menu of facials, we believe that your treatment should be based on three principles; skin hydration, skin texture as well as addressing your primary concerns.
The main purpose of most facials is to thoroughly clean your skin, remove surface impurities, stimulate circulation and feed it with vitamins, minerals that nourish the skin, leaving your complexion refreshed and radiant. We request that all our clients have completed an Initial Skin Therapy Assessment Facial prior to booking your Bespoke Facial so we can determine your skin's profile that is essential to your ongoing treatments.
Enzyme Peel Express Facial
Many skin care treatments involve a process called “exfoliation” or “peels” that is normally performed for several skin conditions including ageing, sun-damaged, and mild acne. Most of the clinical peels used today often have a tendency to over-exfoliate, causing the skin to thin and leaving it vulnerable, stressed and compromised.
Our Dermaviduals enzyme peel gently refines the surface of the skin, preparing for the infusion of your pure, active Dermaviduals ingredients. Your treatment begins with a customised cleanse before your enzyme peel is applied and gently massaged into the skin using a brush technique under hydrating steam. Once your peel has been completed, a relaxing massage followed by a serum infused treatment mask is applied to nourish and restore balance.
Our Enzyme Treatment Facial can be used as a stand alone treatment and is included in your Bespoke Facial Treatment.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
CIT is a medical skin treatment that uses a dermal pen that contains multiple ultra-fine needles that creates microscopic holes or tiny dermal punctures in the skin. This process helps to stimulate new tissue regeneration, elastin, and natural production of collagen fibres. It also promotes new capillary flow that improves blood supply and nutrition to the skin. To achieve the full benefit of CIT, three sessions are recommended over a period of four to six months.
Following a course of micro-needling, the skin begins to tighten up under the activation of new collagen and improved circulation, giving you a more youthful smooth skin.
CIT has been shown to decrease skin wrinkles, acne scarring and skin pigmentation.
Note: Before commencing your CIT treatments we request that our clients have completed our Initial Skin Therapy Assessment and have started using our customised Dermaviduals skin therapy products prior to CIT treatment. CIT treatments must be used with a clinical range of approved skincare products that are free of chemicals, fragrances and fillers.
