Shambala’s medi-facials apply the latest research and developments in non-invasive facial treatments and work towards the longer-term and lasting improvement of your skin’s health. Shambala’s medi-facials aim to treat the following skin concerns:
- premature ageing
- dehydrated skin
- sensitivities and rosacea
- sun damage
Our medi-facials are individually designed following a full skin consultation by our skin technicians. We apply highly active products from leading Australian cosmeceutical company Ultraceuticals in our medi-facials that work on the lower layers of your skin and we progress towards visible and lasting improvements. Our medi-facials start with peels to exfoliate and smooth the skin and sono infusion to significantly increase the absorption of active serums into the epidermis. Medi-facials should be repeated every 4 weeks, and you need to be prepared to invest in the prescribed home skincare products to achieve visible and lasting results.
Shambala’s skin consultation
Shambala’s skin consultation is complimentary prior to your first medi-facial or microdermabrasion treatment. We use a highly sophisticated skin analyser to take 3D photographs of your skin to review skin thickness and hydration, oil production, congestion and pore size, pigmentation issues and ageing concerns. Our therapists will review the results and will recommend a specific medi-facial and home care products designed to achieve your skin goals.
Our skin analysis is an extremely worthwhile investment of your time and allows us to track your skin’s progression and improvement and modify the facials treatments as required.
Ultraceuticals is one of Australia’s pre-eminent cosmeceutical brands, offering professional-grade products and facial treatments, formulated to address major skin concerns: ageing, pigmentation and acne.
Ultraceutical’s Australian heritage gives the brand the keenest understanding of protecting and rejuvenating skin placed under the harshest conditions in the world – the Australian sun.
With a combination of sophisticated, patented delivery systems and potent, proven anti-ageing stars like vitamin A and C and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) each facial treatment is formulated for maximum safety and effectiveness, so you get results you can actually see.
- Medi-CLEAR: This Facial Peel quickly de-congests, clarifies and helps control oil production. With proven anti-ageing ingredients and potent anti-oxidants, this peel improves surface congestion and reduces inflammation.
- Medi-REPAIR: Reveal refreshed, youthful, radiant skin in just one treatment. This high powered peel delivers fast results and actively works to dramatically re-surface and improve skin moisture levels whilst restoring clarity and luminosity.
- Medi-GLOW: Ideal treatment for ageing and sun-damaged skin, this potent peel features high-strength AHA’s and BHA’s. The skin brightening treatment works to rapidly exfoliate surface congestion whilst diminishing the appearance of dark spots, pigmentation and blotchiness to reveal a bright and clear complexion.
- Medi-BACK: Medical-grade treatment for back congestion
what is sono infusion?
Sono Infusion is used during our Ultraceuticals medi-facials. This fast-acting delivery technique employs low-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to significantly improve the rate of absorption (an increase of up to 1000 times greater than if applied manually) of antioxidant-powerhouses Vitamins A & C, as well as moisturisers and skin softeners. The result is a visible improvement in the evenness and hydration of the skin. UltraSonophoresis can be used in conjunction with many other treatments to improve their efficacy.
How many treatments will it take to see the “best results”?
Some people see improvement following just one treatment, but a course of 4 to 6 treatments over 3 months is required for longer-lasting results. We also recommend periodic treatments to maintain the rejuvenated appearance of the skin.
Why is the skin consultation mandatory?
The skin consultation allows us to tailor your treatments and home care products to your skin’s requirements and your goals. It provides us with an in-depth, documented analysis so we can monitor your skin’s progression.
Why do I need to buy the prescribed home care products? I already have a home care routine!
The medi-facial treatments and the products only work effectively when combined correctly. Your best results will only be achieved with daily home-care using prescribed home care products.
I am pregnant – can I receive a medi-facial?
Some medi-facials are not recommended when pregnant. During your consultation, your therapist can recommend the appropriate treatment plan.
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my medi-facial treatments?
Discontinue the use of prescribed exfoliants (such as Retin-A and Renova) at least 48 hours prior to a peel treatment. We also advise avoiding facial waxing, laser and prolonged sun exposure 5 days prior to your facial.
