Double Chin Treatment - Belkyra


Belkyra® is the only non-surgical, minimally-invasive, injectable treatment option for submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin.”  Submental fullness is a common cosmetic concern and may be related to ageing, weight gain, and genetics. Submental fullness can result in an older or heavier appearance because of its effect on facial balance and proportion.

In research by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), over two-thirds of consumers surveyed were bother by submental fullness ( double chin) . Unfortunately  submental fullness is common and is difficult to decrease by diet and exercise alone. Belkyra® is a synthetic version of naturally occuring deoxycholic acid (which helps us to break down the fats we ingest ) and has been  approved by the FDA for the treatment of submental fullness or “double chin.”

With over 20 clinical studies supporting its use and thousands of patients already treated, Belkyra® is a safe, effective, and well-researched treatment for submental fullness.


How does Belkyra® work?

Belkyra® is injected into the fat under your chin by a series of upto 20 injections.  It induces an inflammatory reaction in the treatment area and as everyone is different each patient responds differently. The body’s own healing systems then clear the debris away over the next few weeks. Some patients may need 2 treatments and some 4 to 6 to obtain the desired result. Treatments last 30 to 40 minutes and are best spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.

Although Belkyra® doesn’t restrict your activities, you will be swollen after treatment, so you may not wish to go straight back to work. Your double chin will get approximately twice as big for a least a couple of days, and remain swollen for up to 14 days. This swelling is actually crucial to your result. It is a sign of successful treatment and helps the healing process in the area.

Belkyra® treatment does not need to be repeated like Botox or fillers. Once you have completed your course of treatment, it is not expected that you should need to repeat the treatment.  Belkyra® has been scientifically proven to be effective and long lasting with an excellent safety profile.


CoolTech Fat Freezing

A Revolution In Non-surgical Fat Reduction

Cooltech® is designed for treating localised pockets of fat that are difficult to lose with diet and exercise. It has several applicators designed to adapt to all areas of the body thereby enabling one’s figure to be completely remodelled and contoured.

Using a cooling process called cool assisted lipolysis, the Cooltech® system targets and eliminates fat cells permanently. This non-invasive procedure selectively targets fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Cooltech® is ideal for those who are healthy and in good shape but just have some “trouble spots” that don’t respond to healthy lifestyle and eating. Cooltech® works by freezing ( down to – 8℃) the fat deposit causing the fat cells to crystalise and then break down. These destroyed fat cells are then eliminated through the body’s natural processes – they are permanently GONE! There is no damage to the surrounding skin and tissues. It is the latest in non-invasive full body contouring.

The Cooltech® system has 6 different applicators that are designed to fit different areas of the body so people of all shapes and sizes are able to transform their figure.Cooltech® has been studied in numerous in vivo and in vitro clinical trials with certified clinical predictability and maximum results. Cooltech® technology is based on the proven science of cool assisted lipolysis.

More than 1,000,000 patients have received Cooltech® treatments with an overall satisfaction rate of 95%. Patients can begin to see results in as little as 15 days.

All of the accessories work at a temperature that oscillates between 3 °C and -8 °C. The difference is due to the temperatures required in the different target areas and the thickness of the fat folds.

The Cooltech system designed by cocoon medical has over 1,000,000 successful treatments performed worldwide. Today the cooltech system is available in aesthetic medical practices in more than 40 countries.

The Cooltech® device is designed for dual sculpting thereby optimising treatment times and ensuring better results in each session.

BOTulinum TOXin


BOTulinum TOXin Type A

Dr Brigid Lee at the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic has developed a special interest in BOTulinum TOXin treatments and regularly attends meetings to keep up with the latest techniques. She performs all treatments herself and does not delegate treatments to other members of staff. Each treatment is tailored to the individual client and therefore produces very natural looking results.

What is Botulinum Toxin?

BOTulinum TOXin is a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle causing muscles creating a smoothed, rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. The active ingredient in BOTulinum TOXin is botulinum toxin type A, derived from bacteria in much the same way as penicillin is derived from mould. Manufactured in sterile laboratory conditions, it's a simple non-surgical procedure that smooths the deep, persistent facial lines that develop over time. One ten minute treatment relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed for about 4 months.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

What does treatment with Botulinum Toxin involve?

It is a non-surgical treatment whereby a small amount of BOTulinum TOXin is injected into selected facial muscles using a very fine needle. Generally, BOTulinum TOXin treatments are done for glabella frown lines (the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows when you frown) and takes about 10 minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and no anaesthetic is usually required. The injection may sting for a few seconds but normal activities can be resumed soon after. After the injection, it takes 2-3 days to begin taking effect and about 7-14 days to see the full effect.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

How does Botulinum Toxin work?

BOTulinum TOXin blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines but it can also be used to treat problem underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis).

How long does Botulinum Toxin last?

In general, if the right amount of BOTulinum TOXin is injected by a skilled doctor in the right muscles, results can last 3-4 months after the first treatment and subsequent treatments will last longer (up to 5-6 months.) First time BOTulinum TOXin users, for example, might experience Botox wearing off in less than 3 months.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

Are there any side effects?

The side effects are usually temporary and localised to the area of injection. These include soreness or mild bruising, which can easily be covered with makeup, headache, and less commonly, you may develop a heavy eyelid lasting 1-4 weeks which we may be able to treat with eyedrops. There have been no permanent side effects of BOTulinum TOXin reported. BOTulinum TOXin should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding or for patients with a neuromuscular disease.

Who should administer Botulinum Toxin?

BOTulinum TOXin is a prescription only medicine and as such is only available from a doctor. It should be injected only under the supervision of a registered Medical practitioner. Dr Brigid Lee at the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic has undergone specialised training in cosmetic procedures and performs all injections herself - no treatments are delegated to a nurse.

Dr Brigid Lee is a fellow of the New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine, she also is a trainer for Galderma teaching other doctors and nurses in the safe use of BOTulinum TOXin.

Beware of “bargain Botox” offers. If the price seems much cheaper it is unlikely that registered Allergan Botox or Galderma Dysport is being used, or that the dose is too low or the product has been diluted to give a weaker effect that may not last as long. There have recently been reports of cheaper Korean and Chinese products( Neuronox and Chinatox) being imported into New Zealand which have no proven safety record.

Botox for Sweating

Botox for sweating

Botox Treatment For Excessive Sweating

At the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic we treat problem underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) with Botox. This treatment takes about half an hour, is relatively painless and usually lasts for 10 months or more.

Many people suffer from excessive underarm sweating which can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing. Often they have tried a number of deodorants with limited or no success. Some of the stronger antiperspirants which contain aluminium salts can cause itching and skin irritation.

By placing a number of superficial [shallow] injections of Botox into the armpit the amount of sweating can be markedly reduced [and in some cases stopped all together]. Botox targets sweating at its source. Once injected it enters the specific glands in the underarms responsible for excess sweating. There it blocks the release of a chemical that signals the perspiration. After the first treatment the effects of Botox last an average of seven and a half months; however, the duration of effect may vary from person to person. Some people report a reduction in sweating lasting for more than a year.

The procedure is relatively painless and takes about 30 minutes to complete. In some cases we may perform a sweat test first to determine which areas of your underarms are causing the problem.

You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment.
Side effects are usually minimal but you may experience some bruising or swelling of the treated area.
If you decide not to have further treatment there will be no lasting change in the treated areas. The effects of Botox treatment will gradually wear off and your underarm sweating will resume.

The cost of this treatment at the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic is NZ$1000 – $1200 depending on the size of the area to be treated and the amount of Botox required for a good result.

Ultherapy is an innovative, new type of non-surgical, non-invasive treatment used to lift skin and tighten loose skin and reverse the signs of ageing on areas such as the eyebrows, jawline, and jowls, as well as improve wrinkles on the décolletage.
Over 1 Million treatments have been done world wide!

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy® is a safe, non-surgical, non-invasive ultrasound treatment that uses focused ultrasound and the body’s own regenerative process to gently and gradually lift, tone and tighten skin on the eyebrow, under the chin (the jowls) and on the neck. It is also used to smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

What does Ultherapy treatment involve?

Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy. Using ultrasound imaging, the high intensity focused ultrasound energy penetrates the skin from the outside-in, bypassing the surface of the skin, and delivering targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues where collagen lives. Ultrasound imaging allows the operator to see the layers of tissue being targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.

How does Ultherapy work?

By stimulating the deep structural support layers of the skin, a natural, regenerative response is initiated, stimulating the growth of new collagen, which lifts and tightens the skin over time. Because ultrasound technology actually works non-invasively from the inside-out, results build gradually over 2-3 months, and can continue to improve up to 6 months after the procedure.

How long do Ultherapy results last?

Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of "maturing" skin. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their late thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.

While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Does Ultherapy hurt?

A recent software upgrade called "Ultherapy Amplify" now affords a more comfortable procedure. While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients report that the Ultherapy procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.

We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and patients tell us they find the treatment relatively comfortable and they all leave feeling excited about the benefits to come.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

Is Ultherapy safe?

Natural. Non-Invasive. No Downtime. The FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure has been established to be safe and effective in clinical studies and over 1,000,000 patient treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years. Denise has been through in depth training and has the knowledge to make your treatment a success! Currently she has done the most Ultherapy treatments of any practitioner in New Zealand.

Are there any side effects?

With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change. There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, bruising, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Injectable Dermal Fillers

At the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic we use injectable dermal fillers which are made of hyaluronic acid and are therefore non-permanent and completely reversible. Treatments can be used to erase wrinkles, scars and unwanted lines and to enhance lip shape.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

How will I look immediatey after treatment?

There may be temporary puffiness of the treated areas. Occasionally there is temporary blushing, slight bruising or tenderness around the treated areas. These are all normal occurrences and should clear up within a few days.

Are dermal fillers suitable for everyone?

No, hyaluronic acid injections should not be given into areas where the skin is already infected or inflamed. Previous coldsores at the site of injection may be re-activated (we would usually give you a prescription for anti-viral tablets to prevent this). Dermal filler injections are not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Do the injections hurt?

Depending on where the wrinkles or lines are to be filled will dictate how painful the procedure is. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are made with local anaesthetic incorporated into the injectable gel. This means that once the needle is under the skin the injection numbs itself. We use a tiny 31g needle which is the smallest on the market and numb the area with a numbing cream first. We also use ice to cool the area down (almost like a brain-freeze) which decreases the pain and the chance of bruising. If someone is still feeling any discomfort we can put in a dental block - just like the dentist and completely block the area. Most people report that the injections are relatively painless.

How long does the correction last?

Most people require repeat injections after 9-12 months. Over time the interval between touch-ups becomes longer and the amount required to maintain the effect usually decreases.

What is the cost of a dermal filler treatment?

The cost of dermal filler injections varies depends on the amount of product needed to attain the desired result.

Are dermal fillers safe?

When done by an experienced practitioner (in NZ this can only be a doctor or a nurse) who is a member of the NZSCM (New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine), fillers are safe and effective.

Be sure to discuss any concerns with your doctor during your consultation.


We do not recommend the use of “permanent” fillers due to the high risk of side-effects and long term complications.




The Skin Rejuvenation Clinic was one of the first clinics in New Zealand to offer Pellevé, which is a revolutionary innovation for smoother, tighter skin, FDA-cleared to treat facial wrinkles without surgery. Pellevé can be used to treat the skin on the face, including sagging skin under the chin, nasolabial folds, wrinkles around the mouth, lines or folds between the eyebrows, lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, and finally tired or unhappy expressions.

How does Pellevé work?

Pellevé precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radio wave technology without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. After the treatment, your skin will start to produce new collagen, resulting in an improvement in skin quality, firmness and tightness you can see and feel.

Is the Pellevé treatment safe?

Clinical studies have proven that the Pellevé treatment is a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles without surgery. The side effects and discomfort are minimal, and no drugs or anesthetics are used during the procedure. You may experience some transient erythema or edema, which is typically gone in a few hours.

What should I expect during the procedure?

You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pellevé hand piece touches the area being treated. Because no anaesthetic is required, you will be able to describe the level of heat you are feeling to your aesthetician, which will help to ensure the best possible results.

What should I expect after the procedure?

Possible side effects of Pellevé include mild discomfort (heat) during the procedure in the area that is being treated. Mild swelling and redness may occur which typically go away within 2 to 24 hours.



IPL- Intense Pulsed Light

IPL is a non-invasive procedure that is used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions without disrupting the skins surface. IPL can help reduce the appearance of pigmented spots, freckles and sun damage, small veins and capillaries, rosacea and hyperpigmentation from acne scarring.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

What is IPL?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a non-invasive and non-ablative treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to improve the appearance of the following skin problems:

  • Vascular lesions including spider telangiectasis, broken facial veins, rosy cheeks, rosacea and red thread veins
  • Sun-damage, also called "liver spots"
  • Facial lines and wrinkles
  • Removal of unwanted dark hair

The procedure of rejuvenating aged skin is referred to as photorejuvenation and requires a series of IPL treatments.

What is the treatment like?

Prior to the procedure your specialist practitioner will explain the process to you and discuss your expectations of the treatment. At the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic, Denise does all the IPL treatments, she will also discuss any concerns with the doctor prior to commencing the treatment. It is important that the correct diagnosis has been made prior to treatment.

IPL treatments are normally straightforward. Denise has been extensively trained in advanced IPL procedures and is very experienced. She holds a current laser safety certificate.

Avoid sun exposure for 3 weeks before your treatment.
A topical anaesthetic may be applied to the area but is not usually necessary.
Cold gel is applied to the area being treated.
The Skin Rejuvenation has the M22 IPL system which has an integrated cooling system.
The smooth, glass surface of the IPL treatment head is applied to the skin, delivering precise pulses of light to the area being treated.
Treatment sessions usually last about 20 minutes.
A course of 4-6 sessions every 3-6 weeks may be needed to achieve desired results.
Most patients can return to work immediately after treatment.
Throughout the treatment session the patient must wear protective eyewear. IPL treatments are relatively painless compared to other facial rejuvenation techniques. The sensation has been likened to a light pinch or the snap of a rubber band, but some people find it distressing.

Can IPL treat rosacea?

IPL can be used to treat rosacea and is very effective.
Unfortunately it is not a cure but it can help keep it under control.
IPL targets the red pigment ( haemoglobin) in the superficial blood vessels and helps to shut down the tiny blood vessels which decreases the overall redness of someones skin.
It can take upto 3 treatments before the reduction in redness is noticeable.
We recommend at least 6 treatments at regular intervals to help control rosacea and then 1-2 treatments every 6 months

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

Can IPL be used for sun damage?

Yes, after a series of treatments there is visible improvement to sun damaged and photo-aged skin that shows irregular pigmentation, fine lines and freckling from chronic sun exposure.

Are there any side-effects from IPL?


Side effects are minor and include:

  • Pain during treatment (reduced by contact cooling and if necessary, topical anaesthetic)
  • Skin turning pink and a little sore immediately after the procedure.
  • Sensation of a mild sunburn (redness, peeling, swelling) that may last a few days after treatment.
  • Rarely, skin pigment may absorb too much light energy and blistering can occur.
  • Sometimes the pigment cells (melanocytes) can be damaged leaving darker or paler patches of skin. White patches or scars are rarely permanent.
  • Hair loss may occur.
  • Bruising affects up to 10% of patients


Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation

Platelet rich plasma has been used in orthopaedics, plastic surgery, cardiology and chronic wound care. It has now entered the cosmetic medicine arena where it is used to regenerate aged and damaged skin. It has been used extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Australia and is finally available in New Zealand.

The Skin Rejuvenation Clinic in Christchurch was the first in New Zealand to do a “Bio Active Facial Rejuvenation” using the patient’s own platelet rich plasma.

How do platelets rejuvenate skin?

Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerating tissue, and thus acts to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates smoother skin texture and tone.

What is PRP used for?

PRP has a long history of being used in orthopedic, dental,and reconstructive surgery and more recently has been applied to other fields of medicine such as dermatology, skin wound healing, and cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Scientific studies have documented that PRP grows new collagen when injected into the skin, and can soften sun damage and aging skin issues.

What should expect during and after the procedure?

The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome. PRP therapy can be combined with other treatments to best target a patient's unique issues and thus achieve the final goal of younger looking skin.

Micro-Needling for Collagen Induction


Micro-Needling for Collagen Induction

Micro-needling therapy has been available for many years and a variety of devices have been used to cause micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate collagen production. Initially there was skin stamping and skin rollering but now the newest and most effective device has become available in New Zealand and it is called the Dermapen. The Dermapen is an automatic micro-needling device that has been proven to be as effective as ablative laser treatments such as fraxel , IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels and all with little to no downtime!

The Dermapen is used for skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation, it helps with skin texture by improving wrinkles and fine lines and minimizing pore size, it can also help with reducing scarring whether it’s old acne scarring or a newer wound that has scarred. It can also be used to improve stretchmarks, treat alopecia and lift abnormal pigmentation.

For those interested in the science behind how causing a micro-injury to the skin stimulates collagen production:


How does the Dermapen work?

As the Dermapen passes over your skin, it creates thousands of pin point punctures in the dermis. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that initiate the production of collagen and elastin. The human body is designed to react to any damage or injury by initiating the process of healing.

What can I expect from the procedure?

The skin is cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to lessen discomfort. For better results we use a collagen-stimulating product like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin-C serum or skin lightener for pigmentation during the procedure. A small handheld pen like device with a sterile, disposable tip with 12 tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. Our needling pen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depth allow needles to pierce the skin’s layer at 90 degrees and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment, soothing Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.

How will I look after treatment?

Most people will experience mild redness and possibly some swelling. The same way you may feel with a mild sunburn. Effects may last for 24-48 hours and there may be pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Within a few days you might notice that your skin is a bit flaky as the surface epidermis is shed. This then reveals your end result of a smoother, brighter, and more radiant complexion.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person.

What is the down time like?

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. Mineral makeup may be used after the procedure.




At the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic we use radiosurgery (Surgitron) to remove benign skin lesions, moles and skin tags. This is a technique using high frequency radio waves to remove the unwanted lesions with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue. This results in a very superficial wound, which usually heals with minimal or no scarring.

The mole or skin lesion is shaved off at the level of the surrounding skin. The resulting wound is automatically “sealed” during the procedure and does not bleed. No stitches are required. The wound may then be covered by a protective dressing; however, on the face, some people prefer to leave the wound uncovered for cosmetic reasons. Over the next 7-10 days the area heals by forming a light brown scab, which will fall off to reveal pink new skin. It is essential to refrain from picking or scratching the wound during this healing process. The area continues to mature over the next 6 months or so, eventually fading to match the surrounding skin.

What is RF Surgery?

Electrical current, in one form or another, has been applied to human tissues as a surgical modality for over 100 years. Most electrosurgical units operate from 200 to 1000 kHz. The electrodes on these devices become hot and cauterise the tissue they come into contact with, causing heat damage to the surrounding tissue. High frequency radiosurgery, above 1,500kHz (1.5 MHz), transmits pure radiowaves to the tissue without heating the electrode. The Surgitron's patented technology uses the frequencies of 1.7MHz-4.0MHz which is a pure radiosignal range. Absorption of this frequency is by the water component of cells and "cuts" the tissue with minimal alteration to the surrounding cells. Ellman’s technology has received worldwide acclaim and recognition from leading surgeons, clinics, and universities.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Lesions which can be treated include non-cancerous moles, skin tags, seborrhoiec keratoses and other raised growths.
Surgitron is also successful in treating facial spider veins.

What are the benefits of Cosmetic Radio-Surgery?

Radiosurgery facilitates, accelerates and improves surgical procedures, is efficient in removing benign skin lesions, moles and skin tags with superior cosmetic results. The tissue removal is made at a superficial skin level, the scarring risks are minimal, it is painless, doesn't require sutures, doesn't cause any bleeding, swellings or post-operative infections and ensures a fast and efficient healing process.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Lesions which can be treated include moles, skin tags, warts, seborrhoiec keratoses and other raised growths. Surgitron is also successful in treating facial spider veins.

How much does Radio-Surgery Cost?

The cost of Surgitron treatment varies depending on the number and size of the skin lesions removed, but would typically be between NZ$350 and NZ$500.



Microdermabrasion with high pressured saline

hydrabrasionA device that delivers water and oxygen at supersonic pressure to the skin for rejuvenation is showing efficacy for several conditions, including facial wrinkles, solar keratoses, and acne scars. This new device, which was developed by a Russian rocket scientist, is called the Jet-M.

It uses pressurized oxygen to deliver saline into the superficial layers of the skin at supersonic velocities. The results are fantastic for acne, skin rejuvenation and skin lightening. The 200 meter per second, supersonic microflow of the Jet-M is made possible by a specialized nozzle handpiece that functions as a microdroplet accelerator. There are three jet streams of normal saline, which are used to do a high pressure washing of your face, cleaning out the pores.

The device was cleared by the Food and Drug Administration in 2006 for delivery of saline into the skin. It removes microscopic particles that are usually inaccessible, such as those between cells, in epidermal cracks, in sweat secretions, and in the depression of the hair follicle.

It’s a simple, safe, painless, and effective device for skin rejuvenation.

The Jet-M restores a youthful looking appearance by reducing cellular buildup, strengthening capillary respiration, removing metabolic waste from tissues, hydrating and oxygenating tissues, and energizing cell renewal and the wound-healing process.

This is one of the most favoured treatments of European women.


What can I expect from the procedure?

The procedure is completely painfree. The water feels cold and refreshing. The machine can be a little bit noisy but otherwise this is a very relaxing treatment.

Straight after the treatment your skin will look hydrated and luminous.

How will I look after treatment?

What is the down time like?

This procedure has no down time.



Intensify  Radiofrequency Skin Tightening & Resurfacing

EndyMed | Radiofrequency Skin Tightening & Resurfacing

 Radiofrequency Skin Tightening & Resurfacing

The Skin Rejuvenation Clinic is the first clinic in New Zealand to offer this treatment.


Intensify is a non-invasive treatment used to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, treat cellulite, and contour the body. Radiofrequency energy is used to stimulate the body’s natural collagen and improve the appearance of the skin.



What is EndyMed™?

EndyMed 3DEEP is a machine that aims to produce smoother, brighter, tighter skin. It does this using radiofrequency.

There are a variety of handpieces designed for different parts of the face and body. The radiofrequency is applied to your skin via the appropriate handpiece and generates heat to stimulate your skin cells and encourage new collagen to be produced.

This in turn improves the underlying structures of your skin, causing it to tighten and smooth.

Disclaimer: Results may vary from person to person

Who is the treatment suitable for?

As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any skin diseases or infections in the area treated, there are few medical reasons why you should not have EndyMed.

The treatment is not suitable for:

  • anyone with epilepsy, a pacemaker or metal implants within their body (including dental implants)
  • pregnant or breastfeeding women
What happens during the procedure?

Denise does all the EndyMed treatments at the Skin Rejuvenation Clinic. Often she will use a numbing cream all over your face to make the treatment more pleasant - though it is not particularly painful. She will select the appropriate EndyMed hand piece and move it across your skin in a uniform pattern delivering short pulses of energy to stimulate the skin. The skin will warm up, feeling like a hot shower or bath - this may be slightly uncomfortable but not painful.

A treatment area such as the face will normally take 30 to 45 minutes.

What are the side effects or risks?

Immediately after you’ve had the treatment you will experience some redness, which can last up to two days.

You may also develop micro-crusting, as the skin cells renew and the resurfacing takes place. This can last for five to seven days but is easy to cover with makeup.

What results can I typically expect?

A course of treatment normally consists of 6 sessions 1 to 2 weeks apart. Because EndyMed stimulates natural responses in your skin it can take a little time for the full effects of the treatment to show, but you can see improvements within a few weeks, with the best results from three months onwards after the treatment course. Smoother, brighter and tighter skin – the results will be natural looking, long-lasting and confidence boosting!

Minimally Invasive Non-Surgical Thread (MINT) PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical minimally invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the sagging tissue.

It is performed under local anesthesia with no sedation to correct skin sagging of the face and neck.

MINT lift®, is a safe and effective moulded PDO thread to lift soft tissues in sagging skin. They have approval by FDA and MFDS. The treatment is minimally invasive without scars and trauma, which allows you to go back to daily life almost immediately after the procedure.

The threads utilized in MINT procedure are made out of a material called PDO (Polydioxanone) the very same material used in surgical sutures. They are non-allergic and non-antigenic.  These PDO threads are unique as they have 360 degree 3D helical barbs. The barbs are machine molded through a patented process rather than being cut making these threads specifically strong  (upto four times stronger than threads used in the past). Immediately after inserting Mint PDO threads new collagen formation begins in the area which restores the sagging skin of the treatment area.

The Mint PDO thread lift can also be used to correct areas of the face such as forehead, eyebrows, crows feet, cheeks, mid face, nasolabial folds, jowls and neck.

There would be an instant mechanical effect right after the procedure and over time the PDO threads cause collagen stimulation, which improves skin texture, elasticity and fine lines. The end results are quite noticeable  3-4 weeks after the procedure. The threads generally absorb gradually within six months therefore no suture needs to be removed. Some bruising is normal which subsides quickly.  Even though the threads will dissolve gradually with in six months the process of new collagen formation around the threads and increased blood circulation to the treated area continues to cause a more youthful and rejuvenated look. The procedure is extremely safe and can be repeated in the same or other areas of the face or neck as many times as is required to achieve the desired outcome.

The Mint PDO thread is a very safe, quick and rewarding procedure with no down time. It is a great procedure for facial rejuvenation of the face and neck in patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who desire a natural and rejuvenated look.
