The best facial in Sydney!

You may think you’ve enjoyed a good facial, but unless you have experienced a Mediderm Visage facial at Facial Care By Sia, you just don’t know how effective a facial in Sydney can be.

A Mediderm Visage facial at Facial Care By Sia is the best facial around because it is a medical grade facial. This means, unlike most others facials, our facials penetrate beyond the surface of the skin to deliver nutrients to the skin’s dermis, where they are most needed.

Mediderm Visage Facials

Our Mediderm Visage facials not only use our all-natural, chemical free skincare range skincare by Sia, they also utilise the latest in skin care technology. This includes ultrasonic technology, which not only cleanses pores without scratching, squeezing or scrubbing, but also helps our all-natural medical grade skin peels to penetrate down to the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin, as well as deep healing.

We also use light therapy in our Mediderm facials, for anti-aging, and healing for damaged skin, or for those suffering from acne, eczema and rosacea. Our facials result in fresh, nurtured healthy skin, which is restored to health and natural functioning from the dermis up – and all this is achieved without chemicals!

So for truly the best facial available, contact a Facial Care By Sia clinic in Bondi Junction, Sydney CBD, Castle Hill & St Ives.

The latest technology for facial rejuvenation

It amazing just how far we’ve come in terms of facial rejuvenation in the last 10 years. Thanks to an array of laser rejuvenation technologies, facial rejuvenation no longer requires scalpels and scars.

Laser rejuvenation is amazing because it actually prompts the skin’s own firming factors, collagen and elastin, to naturally firm the skin, rather than introducing outside agents to artificially rejuvenate the skin.

By using heat, laser rejuvenation creates a mild injury to the skin. This prompts the skin to release collagen and elastin to heal itself, which in turn results in facial rejuvenation.

Laser rejuvenation technology at Facial Care By Sia

Facial Care By Sia has just imported two new technologies that make facial rejuvenation even more effective. Our new anti-cellulite technology also results in amazing facial rejuvenation by using a combination of magnetic pulsing and radio frequency to achieve deep thermal stimulation without the pain usually associated with laser facial rejuvenation, such as thermage.

Similarly, our new laser pigmentation removal technology is the only technology of its type available in Australia currently. This new technology also achieves facial rejuvenation via thermal stimulation when used for pigmentation removal.

Facial wash and facial cleansing

Facial cleansing is just about the most important part of your daily beauty routine. Facial wash rids the skin of allergens, pollutants, excess oil, makeup and dead skin cells, preparing your skin for the day and ensuring it functions correctly.

But did you know that most facial wash contains the same ingredient that’s in your dishwashing detergent?

Yep, that’s right. If you check out the ingredients of your current facial wash, you are bound to find something called sodium laurel sulphate, or one of its derivatives.

This chemical in most facial washes is what gives your skin that overly clean ‘squeaky’ feeling and usually has you rushing to apply the moisturiser right after your twice daily facial cleansing.

This very harsh detergent actually strips your skin of essential oils and damages your skin’s protective layer, the epidermal barrier. Once you damage the epidermal barrier, a whole raft of skin problems can occur, such as acne, rosacea and even eczema.

The key to good facial cleansing is using a gentle, natural cleanser that lifts excess oil, dirt and make-up without overly stripping the skin. You By Sia has a number of excellent facial washes that not only never over-strip your skin, but that contain no chemicals whatsoever. Find out more.

Microdermabrasion

If you knew what microdermabrasion was doing to your skin, you’d probably give it a miss! Microdermabrasion is the process of using various kinds of abrasives to remove the top layers of your skin.

This process has been around for a while because clinicians and doctors used to believe this prompted the skin to ‘renew’ itself and helped to remove wrinkles and impurities.

But latest skin research shows that microdermabrasion is doing more harm than good because it damages the skin’s epidermal barrier. Our epidermal barrier is a specialised layer of skin cells and lipids that protects us from UV rays, allergens, irritants and pollutants.

If this epidermal barrier is damaged through the use of chemical creams or excessive exfoliation, the skin diverts resources and nutrients from the dermis to repair it. But it the dermis where our skin’s supporting structures lie, and where nutrients and circulation are needed the most.

Our skin is what keeps the ‘nasties’ located in the environment out of our bodies. Without it, we would not survive. So you can see why it is important to keep our skin functioning at healthy, optimal levels.

At Facial Care By Sia, we have a number of skin treatments, as well as chemical-free skin care, that actually infuse nutrients into the dermis of the skin, where they do the most good, rather than simply polishing off the skin’s top layers. Contact us now.

The miracle of Light Therapy

Facial Care By Sia has been using light therapy for many years. But it is only now becoming obvious to other clinics and doctors alike, just how amazing this treatment is.

Light therapy involves exposing the skin to various light wavelengths to heal skin conditions and improve the overall quality of the skin.

Light therapy achieves amazing results for the skin and body, including accelerated wound healing, deep cell stimulation and a significant reduction in bacteria, and, as such, is now being used to heal the skin post surgery, to heal infections and to reduce swelling and bruising.

At Facial Care By Sia, we use light therapy as a part of our amazing Mediderm Visage medical grade facial. We adjust the wavelength of light to treat aging skin, sensitive skins, acne and more.

Using Light Therapy:

  • Blue light therapy treats acne,
  • Red light therapy is used to stimulate collagen and skin rejuvenation,
  • Infra red light therapy calms inflammation and assists skin healing,
  • Green light therapy helps minimise capillaries, and
  • Yellow light therapy helps reduce excess pigmentation.

 

So contact us now and find out more about how our amazing light therapy can heal and rejuvenate your skin.

Acid Peels

Many acid peels are just as bad as the name suggests, stripping your skin of its top layers so that nutrients must be diverted away from our supporting layers to fix the surface.

Many years ago, skin doctors decided that the top layer of the skin, or epidermal barrier, needed to be exfoliated. Since then, skin care clinics and doctors have used harsh abrasives and acid peels to slough off the top layers of your skin to prompt ‘skin renewal’.

But latest skin research shows that treatments like chemical acid peels may actually be aging your skin further. This is because you are removing the skin’s epidermal barrier – the barrier that stands between you and the outside world. The skin’s first response is to fix this important barrier, so it takes nutrients away from the layer that gives our skin it’s structure – the dermis – to do this.

But it is, in fact, the dermis that needs the circulation and nutrients to stop our skin from aging prematurely.

facial peel at Facial Care By Sia using the latest in natural peels actually infuses nutrients into the dermis and upper layers, to turn back the clock and improve the overall quality of the skin. Our peel infusions are not acid based.
