Acne

Acne can be a big barrier to your confidence and can take a lot of time and stress to hide. However, with the right treatment it can be managed and controlled. We have a range of acne treatments that can help with skin texture and rejuvenation, scar reduction and overall management.

Facial Volume Loss

Facial volume loss is a direct result of the ageing process. Our muscle structure and fat pads beneath our skin begins to deteriorate, causing a loss of facial volume. Our cheeks can lose volume and begin to sag around our muscles, we can start to develop smile lines, jowls become evident, and our lips can lose volume and fullness.

Fortunately, we offer a range of anti-ageing skin treatments that can keep you looking younger and vibrant.

Lines and Wrinkles

There are many reasons wrinkles can form, from your occupation, ageing, smoking, and genetics. Wrinkles are the direct result of the body lowering its levels of collagen and elastin, causing skin to sag and lose its volume.

At Precision, we can offer treatments to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help your skin stay vibrant and fresh. Talk to the team about our dermal fillers or microdermabrasion treatments and see if one of our options is right for you.

Lip Volume

Lip volume is another sign of ageing that is a common concern for women. Over time or as a result of environmental factors, our lips can lose their volume and appear thinner, shrunken and aged. Our lip fillers are an effective treatment that provide immediate results to help your smile really shine.

Pigmentation and Sun Damage

New Zealand has one of the harshest sunlights in the world and can cause concerns for a lot of kiwi women. Signs of sun damage range from uneven general skin tone to age spots and red veins. Pregnancy and various medications can also cause pigment blemishes, but we have treatments to suit everyone’s needs.

Our team can offer a tailored plan of IPL and/or microdermabrasion to effectively combat the damage caused by sun exposure or pigmentation.

Redness and Rosacea

Rosacea usually starts off as a slight reddening on the face, but over time can develop into something far more visible in the form of skin eruptions and inflammation. Symptoms of rosacea can range from flushing, burning or stinging sensations in the face, or visible red lines in affected areas. Lifestyle choices have a big part to play in the development of rosacea, although the exact causes are still unknown.

Changing diet can help a lot for the treatment of rosacea. Eating vegetables with large numbers of anti-oxidants e.g. carrot, kumara and broccoli can give your body the protection and strength it needs to combat rosacea. Spicy foods can often trigger inflammation, so try to limit your intake of spices like black pepper, chili, paprika and cayenne.

Scarring

Scars can be a humiliating barrier for anyone. Acne or other factors could leave visible scars that can cause embarrassment or be concealed with make-up that can further damage your skin. No single treatment fits everyone, however Precision Aesthetics can review any and every case and come up with the perfect treatment plan.

These plans include but are not limited to collagen induction to help improve skin texture and rejuvenation, and even home treatments like dermal rolling to reduce scars, lines and wrinkles.

Unwanted Hair

Both women and men can relate to unwanted hair – whether it’s your face, back, feet or toes. But just because it’s there, doesn’t mean it has to be permanent. Causes can simply be genetic, or a result of polycystic ovarian syndrome.

If the unwanted hair is dark, the most effective way to remove it would be to use our IPL treatments. IPL offers a much more permanent solution than simply waxing or shaving. IPL hair removal works by gently pulsing light down the hair shaft, destroying the root itself. It only takes 15 – 30 minutes, with a few follow up sessions in the resulting months to fully eradicate unwanted hair.
