How your skin ages
Collagen and elastin are the two main components that make up the structure of your skin. Collagen is the group of proteins which make up the structure of your skin giving it firmness and strength, and elastin is another essential protein that supports your skin giving it elasticity - the ability to bounce back when compressed or stretched.
Over time the collagen structure that makes up your skin begins to breaks down. This process occurs naturally but is accelerated by factors including exposure to sunlight (UV), physical stress, and poor sleep.
This breakdown of collagen causes the symptoms associated with aging - our skin slowly reduces in thickness, it sags and becomes less elastic, and fine lines and wrinkles start appearing. As you age your skin is unable to keep up with the job of replacing and repairing these damaged structures, and the rate at which your skin produces new collagen and elastin also slows down, compounding the effects.
How anti-aging treatments work
Anti-aging treatments work to reverse these symptoms by causing your skin to actively produce new collagen and elastin - a process called neocollagenesis - and by re-structuring the existing collagen which hardens and becomes malformed over time. Neocollagenesis takes place by signalling the fibroblasts in your skin to produce new collagen and replace damaged collagen, either through applying controlled damage to the dermis (the primary, thick layer of your skin) or through targeted heating. Broadly these types of treatments are referred to as Collagen Induction Therapies.
While the underlying processes these types of treatments trigger in your skin are the same, the way in which they achieve this result varies greatly. Examples of Collagen Induction Therapies include Laser and Intense Pulsed Laser (IPL), Radio Frequency (RF), Needling and Micro-Needling. Each type of therapy has distinct advantages, contraindications and levels of efficacy in treating different skin aging symptoms.
Natural, with results
The anti-aging treatments offered at Enhance Skin Body Beauty are designed to engage and support the natural healing and repair responses in your skin. As a result, the results always look natural - like turning back the clock.
Our anti-aging treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive. There are no fillers or artificial substances inserted into or added - just your skin looking naturally healthy, and you looking your best and feeling confident.
While the results can be subtle they are noticed - we love it when our clients excitedly tell us their friends and family have commented on how great they are looking.
When combined with a tailored cosmeceutical skin-care routine you can keep your skin healthy and looking great, avoiding the need for more invasive treatment options (such as Botox, filler or surgery) in the future.
Pellevé is relaxing treatment which uses radio-frequency energy to gradually and deeply heat the dermis.
This controlled application of heat deep into the skin causes collagen to contract and re-form, and triggers the production of new collagen and elastin firming, smoothing, plumping and lifting reducing the appearance of lines.
The natural healing and repair response produces new collagen and elastin for 6 to 12 months post-treatment continually building and strengthening your skin.
The Pellevè treatment is non-ablative, meaning it does not penetrate or damage the surface of your skin like IPL, Laser and Needling treatments.
Non-Invasive, Painless and No Downtime
The Pellevé rejuvenation is performed with a specialised hand-held device that is gently moved across your skin applying RF energy feeling much like a warm massage. As the treatment is non-ablative there is no post-treatment care or downtime required - you'll leave feeling a warm glow.
While the Pellevè treatment improves all areas of skin the best results are observed with crows feet, nasolabial folds (from the corner of your mouth to your nose), jowls and skin laxity of the neck.
For the best outcomes a series of 3 to 4 Pellevé treatments are initially performed four weeks apart. Full results are observed between six and nine months after your first treatment. After this first series of treatments, follow-up treatments can be performed each 3 to 9 months afterwards as desired.
The following before and after client photos (used with permission) show the results of a series of 3 Pellevé treatments, with the final comparison photo taken just 6 months after the first treatment.

The Dermapen 3 TM micro-needling treatment is very unlike traditional rollers and manual needling treatments which cause unwanted damage to the epidermis (the top layer of your skin).
The Dermapen 3 TM glides across your skin creating millions of micro-channels at depths specifically selected based on the area treated and the skin concern it is addressing. These micro-channels dramatically reduce unwanted damage to the epidermis and cause your body to naturally respond and launch processes to repair the controlled physical damage created.
In addition to treating symptoms related to aging (such as fine lines and wrinkles) the Dermapen 3 also improves your skin's texture and can reduce the appearance of scars, acne scars, sun-spots and pigmentation, enlarged pores and stretch marks.
The Dermapen 3 provides a finely controlled and targeted treatment down to a quarter of a millimetre which dramatically reduces your post-treatment downtime, removes the need for topical anaesthetic and maximises results. Post-treatment you may notice redness in the areas treated which completely clears within 2 - 5 days, as such this treatment is not recommended immediately before a significant event.
In addition to facial treatments, the Dermapen 3 TM is commonly used and effective on the neck, decollete and hands. Speak to one of our friendly therapists for more information and pricing on these treatments.
Beware of immitation! We only use genuine Dermapen TM hardware and single-use consumables in all our treatments allowing us to achieve the best results from quality and proven technology.
We also stock a complete range of DP Dermaceuticals products which are designed to be used before, during and after a Dermapen TM treatment ensuring the most optimal results are achieved.
DP Dermaceuticals products are specifically designed to be used with the Dermapen and micro-needling treatments - this is very important as not all products are designed to be deeply infused into the skin. Using the wrong products can hinder the treatment or even cause adverse results.
Why we are excited
We love helping our clients achieve great skin, and we're thrilled when our clients tell us how people have complimented them on how great their skin is looking. Having great skin is more than just your skin looking good, it's about feeling happy and confident with your appearance.
Avoid invasive treatments
While our anti-aging treatments help reduce visible signs of aging, the best results come from being proactive and investing in your skin early. By taking care of your skin by using cosmeceutical skin-care at home (which creates change in your skin for the better), having regular facials and proactive anti-aging treatment, you can keep your skin youthful and healthy avoiding the need for invasive procedures such as botox, fillers and surgery in the future.
