Candela Gentlelase PRO- Minoo’s is proud to be the first clinic in Melbourne to introduce this fantastic new Laser Hair Removal technology. The Gentlelase laser hair reduction system is medically developed and researched for the reduction of unwanted body hair. It remains the world’s most efficient laser technology for hair reduction. The Gentlelase Laser hair Removal system light travels through the skin to the base of the hair follicle where it is absorbed by the pigment surrounding the hair forming cells. The laser energy heats the follicle and damages the cells that produce hair. The Gentlelase Laser hair Removal system process uses cryogen to cool the skin making it far more comfortable than many other lasers in the market. The sensation has been described as being similar to a small rubber band being lightly flicked against your skin. Most areas can be treated in 5 to 60 minutes with the Gentlelase Laser hair Removal system – depending on the surface area and hair density being treated. Re-treatments with the Gentlelase Laser hair Removal system are carried out when the hair growth starts again. Hair that is treated effectively during your treatment program will not return. It is possible for some individuals to develop some new hair in the treated area after treatment has completed due to hormonal changes. Lightsheer Diode Laser Hair Removal system- The LightSheer Diode Laser Hair Removal system was the first laser hair removal system to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Compared with many other laser hair removal treatments, LightSheer stands miles ahead. CoolTouch technology means the treatment is extremely well tolerated and with thousands of satisfied customers around the globe, great results are assured. The team at Minoo’s are highly trained professionals who deal with a broad range of skin types ranging from very fair to very dark skin. Laser Hair Removal with the LightSheer is safe and highly effective on all body areas for both men and women.The long wavelength of this Laser Hair Removal system allows even darker skin clients to be treated. This laser has been tested and proven to be effective for laser hair removal.The light emitted by the LightSheerTM Laser Hair Removal system is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or “turned on,” for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to disrupt the hair follicle. The LightSheer’s unique, patented contact-cooling handpiece helps protect the skin by cooling during the laser energy delivery. The diode light at 810nm is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and this energy is converted to heat which results in thermal damage to the hair follicle. This thermal damage causes delayed re-growth of the hair, and in some cases permanent destruction of the hair follicle.

Minoo’s Signature Treatment is a combination of deep exfoliation, light-based treatments and intense hydration. This unique treatment produces stunning results and is one of our most popular rejuvenating and anti-ageing treatments. Even after the first treatment there is a noticeable improvement in the skin’s overall appearance, especially pore size, texture and tone.This treatment simultaneously treats a variety of skin conditions including pigmentation (post inflammatory & or UV induced), congestion, acne scar and enlarged pores whilst also rejuvenating the skin. The first step is removal of the superficial layers of dead skin cells, followed by light therapy and finished off with a lymphatic drainage super hydrating treatment leaving skin plump and refreshed – This is not a facial! The treatments we offer at Minoo’s are classified paramedical and are safe and non-invasive, offering minimal downtime enabling clients to return to normal daily activities. Jetpeel treatment- Jetpeel is an advanced aesthetic treatment device that allows your therapist to administer a range of non-invasive, relaxing skin care procedures with outstanding results. From lymphatic drainage through exfoliation to extreme hydration, the Jetpeel is a revolutionary new treatment. Jetpeel takes saline and/or concentrated vitamin fluids, accelerates it using pressurised air to supersonic velocities and with a special handpiece-nozzle breaks the accelerated liquid into micro-droplets. The kinetic energy of the micro-droplets gently and painlessly exfoliates the outer later of the epidermis, and pushes the vitamin treatment into the skin. The jet stretches the skin at the point of contact, causing barophoresis, which means that micro-chanals in the epidermis broaden and allow for hydration, cleaning and needle-free, effective transcutaneous supplementation.The Jetpeel treatment is often combined with other skin treatments for maximum results depending on your skin’s need. Minoo’s uses the Medical Grade Jetpeel, which is the only machine powerful enough to achieve resurfacing and provide your skin with intense hydration.
IPL- The Quantum Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an age-defying, non-invasive treatment that simultaneously improves a variety of facial concerns. The therapeutic light energy erases the skin damage while it protects the healthy surrounding skin. Using the latest generation of IPL technology, this treatment also acts on the collagen beneath the surface. Skin improves with an even-colored tone, smaller pore size, smooth texture, radiant complexion, and an overall revitalized appearance. Unlike many conventional cosmetic laser procedures, IPL Photorejuvenation refreshes the entire face and provides noticeable, but subtle results achieved over several treatment sessions. This gradual approach allows you to return quickly to work or routine activities without a recovery period. It also minimizes any discomfort and the likelihood of side effects. From fine lines, age spots and broken capillaries to enlarged pores, coarse skin and mottled pigmentation, IPL Photorejuvenation eliminates the signs of aging while it restores a youthful smoothness with high satisfaction. Unique IPL technology sends a broad sepcturm of theraputic light deep into the skin’s collagen level — so you can simulatneously treat a wide range of skin conditions, from pigmentary changes to photo-ageing to the redness and flushing of rosacea. This effective, non-invasive treatment modality provides impressive results with no down time. IPL Photorejuvenation has the unique capacity to treat multiple symptoms of aging skin on your entire face in each treatment session. Among these are fine lines, red blemishes, mottled coloration, broken blood vessels, pigment discoloration such as freckles and age spots, enlarged pores, coarse or rough skin, loss of skin tone and elasticity, and general sun damage. The result is a youthful, smooth and revitalized facial appearance. IPL can also treat spots, discolored areas and other tell-tale signs of aging on your hands, chest and neck. While there are lasers that treat red spots, other lasers that treat brown spots, and yet others that are for the resurfacing of the skin, no technology provides the long-term improvement of complexion and texture of the IPL Photo Rejuvenation program—with nothing more than the slightest interruption in your busy lifestyle. In addition to treating multiple symptoms and locations in each session, IPL is gentle, non-invasive and safe. Because of this, there is no “down time.” You see results in the complexion and the skin texture of the entire face. You can return to your normal routines and activities immediately. In fact, many people even schedule their sessions during their lunch break. Additionally, IPL treatments are customized to your specific skin type and color, providing the best possible results. Whether you’re a man or a woman, if you are showing the signs of aging and sun damaged skin, you should consider IPL Photorejuvenation to help you look as young and healthy as you feel. A brief consultation with a therapist at Minoo’s is the best way to find out. By dividing the full program into several treatments—usually about five— the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk—and, it preserves the wonderful “no downtime” feature people appreciate so much.
Skin Needling- Dermapen's advanced vertical skin needling technology uses mutltiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin's surface it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, 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 increases absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulates repair and faster resurfacing results. Advanced vertical skin needling promotes scar-healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen, similar to fractioanl laser treatments but without the side effects and downtime. It's also more effective then most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, the Dermapen causes less trauma and has minimal epidermal (skin) damage, therefore reducing pain and discomfort, and making it a safer, more effective treatment. The disposable needles eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your indivicual needs. The Dermapen is so advanced, that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, lips and on the nose. For optimal results we recomment a period of effective active treatment cosmeceuticals such as Vitamin A's, C, Tyrosinase inhibitors and antioxidants to allow the skin's strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Continue to use these recommended solutions after the treatments for a period of at least 6 weeks. Use of sunblock pre and post treatment are mandatory.
Microdermabrasion- The Minoo’s team uses a medical grade Clairderm Microdermabrasion unit. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, gentle process of using crystals accelerated onto the skin’s surface to abrade layers of dead and damaged skin cells. On completion of the deep exfoliation process through microdermabrasion, a vacuum suctions whisks away the fired crystals and unwanted abraded skin particles leaving your skin smoother, brighter, firmer and with a course of procedures, blemish free.You will see an immediate visible result of youthful brilliance, and an illumination of dull and stressed looking skin even after one procedure of Microdermabrasion. However a program will be advised depending on your skin’s condition and aesthetic goals. Microdermabrasion increases microcirculation, bringing nutrients to the skin and improves greatly the appearance of all imperfections. Regular Microdermabrasion treatments offer exceptional opportunities for skin with an increase in penetration of homecare creams and serums by 4-5 times more than skin not treated with Microdermabrasion. Your therapist will also recommend a professional cosmetic maintenance program to achieve the best results for your skin’s individual needs. Your Microdermabrasion procedure is hygienic, painless and safe and the procedure is customised for your special skin concerns by your therapist to fit in with work schedules without any inconvenience or immobolisation and on completion you can apply light makeup. Any slight redness you may experience depending on the strength of procedure chosen by your qualified therapist will fade within one to twenty-four hours. It is recommended that you refrain from any invasive procedures if you are having a deeper Microdermabrasion treatment unless advised by your therapist. Waxing is not recommended 2 days prior to or at least 7 days after the Microdermabrasion treatment. We strongly advise against the use of sun beds and swimming in heavily chlorinated water for at least 2 weeks after the Microdermabrasion treatment. Skin Consultation: Visia Digital Skin Analysis System- Before any skin treatment is performed a computerised image of your skin is taken with the Visia Digital Skin Analysis System. The Visia makes it possible for the first time to scan your skin and record surface and subsurface skin conditions such as; Dark spots (pigmentation, freckles, vascular lesions)Wrinkles, Pores, Uneven texture, Porphyrins (evidence of bacteria lodged in the pores), UV spots (subsurface sun damage). The skin analysis usually takes about 10 minutes and involved taking two digital images, one natural and one ultra-violet in the Visia booth. The images are then analysed using an advanced computer program that compares your personal skin characteristics to those of a large database of other people if your sex, age and ethnicity.The results are then reviewed and discussed with you by one of our experienced practioners who will make recommendations on how to improve the appearance of your skin and or how to preserve its appearance or prevent further decline. The recommendations may include treatments and/or the use of professional home care products. Copies of images can be emailed to you for your reference.At the completion of the analysis and consultation of your consultant will give you a prescription of recommended treatments and products.Read more
