What aesthetic devices and training does Nov-U offer?

The beauty and medical aesthetic industries have merged so closely to one another that they are separated by only a fine, blurred line. By definition, medical aesthetics is an inclusive term used for specialised treatments which focus on improving the appearance of the skin by treating issues such as scaring, spider veins, pigmentation changes and abnormalities, dynamic and static ageing lines, moles, liver spots, excess fat and skin, cellulite and unwanted hair.

In addition to the therapeutic effects your clients will benefit from, as a beauty business owner, these aesthetic treatments allow you to set yourself as a somatologist and your beauty business above the average beauty salon. Ageing can be treated more effectivly with long lasting results. Dermatologists, plastic surgeons, surgeons and oncologists are becoming more open to working together with somatologists in order to offer their patients solutions to post surgery scarring and pigmentation abnormalities. All of this opens a new, higher income group to cater for. Consumers don’t mind spending the money if they are receiving excellent results.

 

Nov-U specialises in ANESI aesthetic devices and education. We offer theory and practical training on a monthly basis, hosted by a B Tech qualified Somatologist Jaclyn Engelbrecht and assisted by B Tech Somatologist Jenne Smit. 

 

Herewith what we offer:

1.1 ANESI SKIN NEEDLING PEN 

 

We offer two needling pens, Dr pen and the ANESI silver pen. The silver pen accommodates both the 12 point and 42 point needles used for standard rejuvenation, light scarring and skin tightening. The dr pen however works at a higher speed, allowing you to work with a variety of advanced needles which are more effective on hyper pigmentation spots, deep ageing lines and scarring. Our dr pen has a longer lasting battery and a shorter charging time than the silver pen.

 

 

How does a skin needling treatment (pen) work?

 

The micro needling pen is used for medical skin needling, collagen induction therapy, per cutaneous collagen induction and/or electronic derma rolling. Each client is treated with a new, sterile cartridge inserted into the front of the device. The practitioner can easily set the device at different depths in order to personalise your treatment. The needles on the device create thousands of micro-columns in the skin. Skin cells such as keratinocytes, fibroblasts and growth factors are stimulated by the penetration of needles in the skin, which in turn stimulate new collagen production. The layers of the skin are renewed and rejuvenated. With thousands of micro-columns, the absorption of skincare products is increased significantly. This treatment is a must for anti ageing fanatics!

 

Why do skin needling treatments?

 

-It reduces acne, surgical or accident scars
-It Improves fine lines and wrinkles
-It increases general skin rejuvenation
-It refines enlarged pores
-Stretch marks visibility will improve

1.2 SKIN NEEDLING DERMA ROLLER

 

By using our efficient and cost-effective derma rollers, we seek to create the same controlled skin injury we do with the skin needling pen. With the roller however it is on a smaller scale. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body into filling these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. Derma rollers are only able to work with one needle length at a time, thus for a personalised treatment you will need more than one roller. The benefit of the rollers however is that a home roller in a 0.3mm can be purchased to maintain your results. The ultimate combination for skin needling is to offer in salon treatments using the needling pen and then to sell the home rollers for at home maintenance.

2. SKIN BLADING

 

Skin blading, also known as Dermaplaning, is a safe, non-invasive treatment which uses a special tool (handle and blade) stroked along the skin, while holding the skin taut to remove excess skin cells, as well as vellus hair on the face, also known as peach fuzz.

 

 

 

How does skin blading work?

 

Skin blading works by mechanically exfoliating your skin. Excess skin cells and skin cell debris is removed from the epidermis. The process will also remove vellus hair from your face. This process of cell removal of the epidermis is stimulating the deeper layers of the skin in the dermis to regenerate. It will assist in increase collagen production to improve skin tightness and texture. The procedure is done using a sterile, surgical scalpel, placed 45-degree angle on the skin, and brushed back and forth over the skin on the face.

 

Why offer skin blading?

 

-Improve fine lines and wrinkles
-It improves an uneven skin texture
-Enlarged pores are refined
-Dull skin is improved and glows post treatment
-Hyper pigmentation can be reduced

Skin blading produces maximum results with minimum downtime after the procedure. It mechanically exfoliates the epidermis and removes vellus hair. Skin blading provides immediate skin tightening and collagen production is increased thus the skin looks younger and rejuvenated. It can be combined with other procedures and is a brilliant preperation treatment for skin needling. Skin blading results in increased product absorption and a smoother makeup application.

3. PLASMA SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT

 

Plasma is the fourth state of matter: liquid, solid, gas and plasma. The principle is to ionise gases in the air to create a small electrical arc, like a tiny lightning bolt, with which the affected area may be treated, without damage to surrounding areas.

 

How does Plasma Skin Tightening work?

 

Plasma skin tightening is also known as “Soft Surgery” as it delivers results like surgery. However, there is no scalpel, stitches, bandages and downtime is limited. The treatment is minimally invasive. Young, elastic skin depends on the number of structural proteins such a collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin help your skin resist temporary change such as stretching, folding and wrinkling. Skin tightening is induced when a mild, superficial, controlled burn is done using an AC voltaic arc, DC voltaic arc. This in turn restores more elasticity to the skin, as localized excitation stimulates the skin’s regeneration process, resulting in firm and tighter skin. The wrinkles will appear reduced and skin much tighter. A client’s needs are met with a higher degree of precision.

The skin responds to a controlled burn induced by the plasma device by regenerating new collagen, resulting in tighter and firmer skin. Fibroblasts are the collagen producing cells in the skin. The tissues retract and tighten giving you a more youthful looking skin. Collagen, hyaluronic acid and Fibronectin is revived for youthful skin.

 

What can be treated with Plasma Skin Tightening?

 

-Saggy and loose skin and skin imperfections on the face and body can be improved by using plasma skin tightening without cutting the skin.
-An eyelid lift can be performed by working on the eyelids.
-Eye bags can be improved.
-Face/ neck lift can be achieved.
-Smokers lines can be removed
-Crow’s feet can be reduces.
-Hooded eyes can be improved.
-Neck/ jaw lift can be achieved.
-Frown lines can be improved (both dynamic and static)
-Lip flip can be performed resulting in fuller looking lips.
-Overall skin rejuvenation is improved.
-Skin tag removal
-Acne and surgical scars can be improved dramatically.
-Stretch marks can be reduced.
-Sun spots/ hyper pigmentation can be improved.
-Knee caps can be treated, reducing loose skin.
-A tummy tightening can be achieved (fabulous for post pregnancy)

4. Ultrasonic Spatula

 

During an ultrasonic facial, high level sound wave technology (sonophoresis) is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration.

 

 

 

How does it work?

 

The application of ultrasonic frequency is commonly used by salon professionals to increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, fade dark eye circles, freckles and old age spots and even repair scar damage. The process is safe, painless and gentle and can even be used by sensitive skin types such as those with Rosacea.

The sound waves produced by the ultrasound facial machine resonate well above our hearing level and move too quickly for our nerve endings to register. The intensive rejuvenating cyclic sound waves penetrate below the skin reaching the dermis and will not cause the user any discomfort or side effects.

 

The benefits of ultrasound include:

 

-Stimulate blood circulation
-Aids in lymphatic drainage
-Gently exfoliates dead skin cells
-Increase cell metabolism
-Enhance penetration of active ingredients
-Tightens and tones the skin
-Refines pores
-Improve skin texture
-Assist with puffiness and dark circles under the eyes
-Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles

5. Diamond Peel (microdermabrasion)

 

The diamond peel is a non-invasive, mechanical microdermabrasion procedure that removes dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil on the skin surface. The diamond peel offers mechanical peeling, removing the top layer from the skin using diamond coated heads. It will improve the absorption of active ingredients, aid in the removal of pigmentation and minimise lines and wrinkles. The diamond peel is combined with the effectiveness of vacuum suction. It improves the appearance of your skin, by revealing younger and radiant skin underneath in an instant.  It is not as invasive as chemical peels and will not irritate the skin. The treatment will not cause pigmentation, prolonged redness and the treatment is safe, even on sensitive skins.

The vacuum suction function can be used for the increase in micro circulation, promote skin metabolism, improve oxygen supply and nutrients and removal of comedones.

The diamond peel can easily be used in conjunction with any of our ANESI treatments, as well as a preparation phase (exfoliation) before any skin needling treatment.
