Our skin is constantly being attacked by our environment and even if we live in a ‘skin friendly’ environment there is the added insult of genetics and social habits. These factors can leave our skin looking dull with open pores, congestion, redness, broken capillaries and brown discolouration such as freckling or pigmentation. The texture and tone of the skin is poor creating fine lines and wrinkles on the skin from facial expression and facial movements.

Skin can also be affected by a condition called Rosacea. When Rosacea flares up it makes the skin look ‘flushed’ and red with associated broken veins and a ‘dimpled’ uneven texture.

Here are some of the concerns a Respect Your Skin treatment can treat:

  • Sun damage to the face, neck and décolletage;
  • Poor Skin texture;
  • Facial redness & broken capillaries;
  • Rosacea and mild acne;
  • Freckles on the face, neck and décolletage –Crystal Laser Genesis is the treatment of choice when treating brown freckling on darker skin types where IPL Limelight Colour Correction treatments are not recommended or unsafe;
  • Brown pigmentation, hyperpigmentation and Melasma (a hormonal pigmentation commonly on the forehead, around the cheeks and eyes and on the chin) – Crystal Laser Genesis is the treatment of choice when treating brown freckling on darker skin types where IPL Limelight Colour Correction treatments are not recommended or unsafe;;
  • Fine crepey lines and wrinkles on the skin;
  • Large dilated open pores;
  • Scarring – A Respect Your Skin treatment is an extremely effective treatment for acne scarring.


Microdermabrasion, IPL and Laser Genesis have been used effectively and safely in combination to treat a variety of cosmetic skin problems.

Microdermabrasion or the ‘Parisian Peel’ employs tiny aluminum oxide crystals that pass across the skin to remove the outer, “dead layer” of skin called the Stratum Corneum. By removing this outer skin layer over several treatments, wrinkles, textural irregularities, pore size, acne scars and pigmentation blemishes can be softened, faded and improved. The microdermabrasion process generally enhances the overall health and vitality of your skin and removes the dead skin barrier in preparation for the IPL and Laser Genesis parts of this combination treatment.

The Laser Genesis procedure uses non-invasive laser technology to safely and effectively treat fine wrinkles and diffuse redness, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, brown pigmentation, Rosacea and scars. By heating the deeper layers of the skin it creates a ‘thermal injury’ that results in the stimulation of new collagen. Collagen is essential to give the skin its elasticity and plumpness. It also helps breakdown scar tissue and reverses the effects of abnormal skin healing.

IPL is a light based treatment to rejuvenate the skin and even out colours such as brown and red. An IPL treatment improves the appearance of Rosacea, sun damaged and aged skin, brown age spots & freckling, as well as reducing redness and flushing. The IPL treatment uses specific light parameters to improve the texture, and colour of the skin with very little downtime. IPL utilizes light in a way to restore your whole face gradually and naturally.

Respect Your Skin treatments are an innovative combination of Microdermabarsion, IPL and Laser Genesis to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women of all ages. It is an excellent treatment for pigmentation problems on fair skin types. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, brown pigmentation, freckling and fine wrinkles. This procedure has also been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.


There is a minimal amount of discomfort involved when undergoing Respect Your Skin Treatments. Before the actual treatment you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturisers and in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated the day before the treatment. Your cosmetic practitioner will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.

The Microdermabrasion part of the treatment is a non-invasive, gentle process of using crystals blown onto the skin’s surface to abrade layers of dead and damaged skin cells. On completion of the abrasive process, a vacuum suction whisks away the fired crystals and the unwanted abraded skin particles

After the Microdermabrasion the next part of the treatment is the Laser Genesis. Clients often describe this treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin.

After the Laser Genesis, the next part of the treatment is the IPL treatment. IPL light is flashed onto the skin and you will notice a bright light which will feel like a hot elastic band has been flicked onto the skin. The eyes are protected by sticky eye guards or goggles during the entire treatment. After the treatment the skin feels hot and slightly stingy like mild sun-burn but this settles over a few minutes and your cosmetic practitioner will apply cold compresses and soothing gels to the skin to help relieve any post treatment sensations.

After your Respect Your Skin treatment there is usually mild redness lasting less than 24 hours in most people. On rare occasions the redness may last for up to three days. Mild bruising is possible when large broken capillaries are treated but usually clears very quickly. Mild swelling of the face for 1-2 days occasionally occurs in severely sun-damaged skin due to reduced quality of connective tissue around the blood vessels. Pigmented areas may darken after the treatment to look like pepper has been sprinkled onto the skin.

Each Respect Your Skin treatment will leave the skin looking fresh with a more even skin tone and improvement in brown pigmentation and diffuse redness with a smoother healthier appearance. Over the course of 4-6 treatments, Respect Your Skin treatments can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven texture caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more radiant, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

It may be beneficial to have additional treatments that compliment your Respect Your Skin treatment. These can include Facial Laser Vein treatments, Dermapen Skin Needling, and Facial Peels.
