A short introduction about
What we treat
TUSC’s mission is to supply professional services aimed at all men and women who are concerned with keeping their skin as young as possible forever, by giving them the best advice and providing a complete comprehensive range of specifically designed treatments and selected professional products within the medical aesthetic arena.
While our skin is as individual as we are, and skin ages differently depending on our genetics and lifestyle, the first signs of skin aging normally appear on the surface of skin from around the age of 30.
As skin ages its processes slow down and its structure weakens. The substances that keep skin firm and smooth start to reduce. This is due to a combination of internal and external factors.
The most noticeable first signs of skin aging are fine lines and wrinkles which deepen with the passing of time.
Rosacea is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that most often affects the face. Rosacea worsens with time if left untreated. It is often mistaken for acne, eczema, or a skin allergy.
Spider veins usually develop in a network that might resemble a spider’s web (hence the name). They may be red or blue and affect a variable amount of area that can be quite extensive in some cases. The most common areas to find spider veins are on the leg, particularly on the thighs and back of the legs.
Cosmetic tattooing is used to create new eyebrows, eyeliner, lipliner and full lip colour. Either using microblading or a machine a person’s natural features can be enhanced by cosmetic tattooing, also know as permanent make-up. Medical tattooing is used to cover scars, and create areolas and nipples.
Tattoo Removal content must change as we don’t do Eliminink anymore. Wherever there is the word Eliminink replace it with chemical tattoo removal.
Through a specially-formulated process, EliminInk bonds with ALL permanent makeup pigments and tattoo inks resulting in a tattoo removal procedure that is NON-color dependent unlike that of laser which is color dependent. This, in turn, greatly increases the potential for successful tattoo removal and decreases the overall number of treatment sessions required (as compared to what is frequently required when using the laser technique).The EliminInk Tattoo Removal System is similar to the original tattoo procedure.
Either red or atrophic (indented) scars can be treated using either laser, microneedling or RF.
A stretch mark is a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear.
Not everyone develops these narrow bands on their skin. Fluctuating hormone levels seem to play a role. You may also have a higher risk if people in your family get stretch marks.
Sebaceous Hyperplasia – small whitehead looking lesions
Sebaceous Keratosis – waxy, raised, uneven lesions
DPN – Dermatosis Papilloma Nigra also known as Morgan Freeman spots
Solar Keratosis – rough, peeling lesions often red and scaly
Cherry Angioma – little red raised bumps
Dilated Capillaries – red vessels, normally seen on the cheeks and nose
Milia – little balls of dead cells which look like tiny pearls and form in dry areas of the skin especially around the eyes.
Firm skin can stretch and snap back into place easily. When skin loses this ability, it starts to sag. Saggy skin can happen almost anywhere on the body.
As skin ages, it loses two important proteins manufactured in the dermis — elastin and collagen. Both elastin and collagen production decline as people age.
Whether you have teenage, adult or hormonal acne, it will be debilitating and frustrating, we can help you clear it with regular treatment.
Discolourations of the skin can appear from sun damage, trauma, hormonal changes, medication, and cosmetic preparations. It can be dermal or epidermal that is deep or superficial.
If it is not from sun damage, it tends to be a chronic disorder which needs to be managed 3 way, by systemic anti-oxidants, topical preparations, and professional treatment. If these protocols are followed, great results can be achieved and enormous improvements experienced.
A guide to the
Treatments we offer
We maintain the very best standards of hygeine and sterilisation, the highest code of ethics and conduct and keep up to date with the latest developments and technology in the industry. Our therapists are highly qualified and put love, passion, commitment, healing and professionalism into every treatment given.
A chemical peel is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the appearance of your skin.
Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck, hands and other areas of the body. Sun exposure, acne or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.
Dermapen’s advanced skin needling technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin’s surface it stimulates natural collagen production, whilst allowing fine channels to be created in the skin.
The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer.
This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
By using a blade, dead skin cells and unwanted hair is removed from the face allowing excellent product penetration and better results in any treatment to follow especially prior to skin peels.
This non-invasive method for removing thread veins / capillaries and superficial blue veins on the legs is extremely effective with very little down time.
It works by shutting down the feeder veins which create the red capillaries to dilate, thus stopping the blood supply so superficially and redirecting it to the deeper vessels. It is minimally uncomfortable and requires between 4 and 10 treatments depending on the severity of the problem.
IPL is used for permanent hair reduction on all Fitzpatrick Skin types and takes from 6 to 10 treatments, spaced according to the area being treated.
and skin rejuvenation treating brown (pigmented) and red (capillaries) lesions, including sun damage, Rosacea, premature aging, sensitivity, acne and pigmentation.
The secondary effect of IPL is the increase of collagen up to 94% creating reduction in pore size and firming of the skin.
Microblading is not new, in fact it is the oldest form of permanent make-up, it a manual method of permanent make-up which creates hair stokes. Hair strokes can be created using a manual tool or a machine. What is new is the tool that we use to do microblading and the name given to the treatment. However, don’t think that it is something completely different.
In fact what you must know is that it is an advanced method of permanent make-up and it is imperative that the technician has done full training in PMU in order to know how to microblade.
Unfortunately some people think they can learn this art in 3 days and I can assure you, as an experienced trainer since 1990, you cannot become proficient in 3 days without full knowledge and training of all the modalities of PMU.
It is quite common to use several techniques when doing a treatment which may include machine work with a nano needle or single bar needle as well as some form of shading and microblading.
Permanent make-up allows a person’s natural features to be enhanced so they can wake-up with definition. It camouflages scars, areas of depigmentation, and recreates areolas and nipples.
Cryotherapy is a freezing technique using Nitrous Oxide (similar to liquid nitrogen) to freeze the lesions off.
The eMatrix system’s ergonomic applicator delivers bipolar radio frequency energy via a matrix of 64 electrodes in the disposable applicator tip. The RF energy generates fractional deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. Less affected tissue surrounding the matrix points may be stimulated by heat which helps accelerate the healing process, leading to tighter, rejuvenated appearance of the skin.
After treatment with the eMatrix system for Sublative Rejuvenation, most patients showed improvement in facial parameters such as skin brightness (83%) and skin smoothness/wrinkle reduction (90%).
These muscle relaxing injections are used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles.
It is made from a natural purified protein which is a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
Botulinum toxin can be injected into humans in extremely small concentrations and works by preventing signals from the nerve cells reaching muscles, therefore paralyzing them.
A tiny amount of serum is injected into specific muscles and blocks impulses from the nerve which make them contract. Because the muscles relax, undesirable frown lines and wrinkles are significantly reduced.
Filler injections are a cosmetic treatment used to smooth wrinkles or pitted scars in the skin. They are also used to make the lips fuller. When injected under the skin, a filler raises or puffs up that area. There are many kinds of injectable fillers, including Hyaluronic acid, collagen, fat, biodegradable polymers, Calcium hydroxylapatite, microscopic plastic beads and bovine collagen. The plastic beads are made of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). The collagen goes away over time, but the plastic beads remain under the skin permanently.
The TUSC doctors use hyaluronic acid which has proven to be the safest as it is closest to the skin’s natural matrix. It is cross linked forming a good cross hatch in the dermal tissue and it draws fluid to the treated area plumping it out. Filler can last up to 18 months in the skin.
Are used to tighten the skin in areas where it is sagging. Made of dissolvable material which when dissolved leaves new collagen and elastin in its place.
The Ceccarelli Fat Lipolysis is a treatment for stubborn fat pockets that do not respond well to dieting or other weight loss methods.
The Ceccarelli solution, containing vitamin C and iron, uses the body’s metabolism by acting on the fat cells, causing natural fat cell destruction. The result is a reduction in those unwanted bulges and is most often used to reduce fat around the tummy, upper thighs, hips, love handles and saddle bags.
It can be used for excess fat under the chin, i.e. double chin as well as certain under-eye fat pockets.
The Lamprobe is a multi-dynamic instrument for non-invasive and minimally-invasive, bloodless surgical removal of skin lesions.
Epidermal lesions, within the scope of practice of the Somatologist, can be safely and effectively removed on all skin types with selected probes.
Surgeons, Dermatologists and Doctors specialising in aesthetic medicine ensure extremely effective, minimally-invasive management of superficial to deep dermal lesions, with minimal co-lateral tissue damage and speedy tissue recovery, using the Lamprobe.
The future of skin care is moving away from invasive, burning devices that scar or pigment the skin. Clients and patients expect optimal results in era of advanced technology. The Lamprobe delivers results every time.
TriPollar technology painlessly delivers focused and optimal RF energy to the skin surface and to subcutaneous fat layers. Controlled energy is delivered via three or more electrodes , centered between them, and limited only to the treatment area. This focused delivery results in improved treatment efficacy that provides immediate visible results from the 1st treatment. The treatment is painless and pleasant because of the relatively low power needed.
TriPollar integrated preset parameters allow practitioners to choose between body and/or facial treatments. Targeted facial treatment regenerates collagen fibers in the dermis layer. Targeted body treatments shrink fat cells in the hypodermis layer and accelerate collagen regeneration.
