We understand your beauty and anti-ageing needs intimately Derma-SK4 Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical method of rejuvenation by means of mechanical skin exfoliation without chemicals or laser. Derma-SK4 microdermabrasion offers a modern, virtually painless alternative to chemical and laser peels. It is a versatile procedure that can be combined with other treatments to help achieve the customers desired results. This non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure immediately restores smoother younger looking skin and is great for treating the following skin conditions:
Fine lines and wrinkles Acne prone skin Oily, dry or patchy skin Sun damaged skin Whiteheads Blackheads Superficial age spots and hyperpigmentation
Complete Beauty SK4.indd 6
TREATMENT Medical microdermabrasion is performed by passing a hand held device that uses a highly controlled (SK4 Cyclone Technology) flow of fine, medical grade crystals over the skin. These crystals, delivered at high velocity onto the skin surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it. This skin exfoliating process improves the tone and texture of the skin and also reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft and smooth. Following microdermabrasion the skin is in a better condition to absorb anti-ageing and acne skincare products. At the same time the underlying epidermis is also stimulated by the treatment and this promotes new collagen, thickening the dermis and improving the resistance to the effects of ageing. The results are instant, and unlike chemical peels, microdermabrasion usually does not require a preparation prior to treatment. One of the many advantages of Microdermabrasion is that it can be used on all skin types, young and old, male and female with no recovery time needed post treatment.

diamond-sk4 DIA-SK4 Crystal Free Mechanical Peeling Made of surgical grade stainless steel, each DiamondSK4 Applicator tip is embedded with natural diamond chips cut to the exact micron size. Applicators are available in several micron chip sizes to insure proper resurfacing for each individualâ€™s skin type and requirement. Selecting the appropriate diamondwand, along with the adjustable vacuum, allows for a controlled abrasion of the skin. Once complete, the dead skin cells that have been removed are deposited on a small disposable filter inside the SK4 for the client to see if required. Because there are no crystals being propelled onto the skin, the DIA-SK4 Skin System allows the user to treat areas closer to the eye area and the fine lines and wrinkles around the lips. The DIA-SK4 Microdermabrasion tip utilises the exfoliating action of diamond chips and the stimulating action of vacuum.The DIA-SK4 wand removes the topmost layer of skin leaving it vibrant and renewed. The DIA-SK4 accomplishes this by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner.

bronze-sk4 Always gives a fantastic spray tan in minutes
As used for the last five years of the spray tanning boom, this is the very latest professional spray tan system, utilising new updated features with HVLP technology. It may look similar to many well known systems but due to our volume and buying power, itâ€™s a fraction of the cost. Extremely easy to use for any seasoned professional or the newcomer novice. Perfect for all professional therapists to give a considerably faster treatment, not as fiddly as the airbrush systems, giving your clients a much more easily achieved, lasting even tan. High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) technology has been re-developed for spray tanning as it delivers more solution but at a low pressure giving greater control of the application, therefore fine layers can be sprayed across the body with greater accuracy giving an even streak free tan. The system is quick and easy to use with a full body tan achieved in less than ten minutes.

STONE-sk4 Hot Stone-SK4 Therapy Hot stone massage therapy, has rapidly increased in popularity internationally over the last five to ten years. Most good spas have members of staff trained in hot stone techniques, and if you havenâ€™t tried a hot stone treatment yet, it is definitely time that you did. Hot stone massage therapy combines and provides the similar benefits of hydrotherapy and thermotherapy together. Using specific massage techniques, you create a deeply relaxing and healing treatment. Basalt stones are the preferred choice in hot stone therapy because they naturally absorb and retain heat better than most others. The specially shaped and polished stones are warmed in water, in a purposed built heater, to between 125 and 135 degrees. The stones are then placed on strategic places on your body according to size, such as your spine, thighs, neck, back and even between your toes, while other larger stones are used for deep tissue massage. The benefits of using hot Stone massage include: improvement of the circulation, improved blood flow to outer tissue, and aids in the elimination of the bodiesâ€™ toxins and waste products. A real must for any modern spa or salon. Stone-SK4 comprises of:

lease-SK4 Why do we offer leasing? What is it? Why is it different to other loans? These are questions we have always been asked, so let’s try to explain the benefits, whether you’re a first time buyer, seasoned veteran or just starting out on your beauty career.
Benefits of Leasing Leasing basically enables businesses to have access to the latest equipment/technology without having to make any capital outlay when purchasing. Immediate Use of Equipment Acquire the item you need now. No need to wait for budget requirements or saving up of capital. Conserve Working Capital This is really prevalent in today’s financial climate, ease cash flow, and keep your cash ready for other profitable opportunities. Furthermore, as this is a alternate line of credit, no other credit lines are affected, such as loans, overdraft credit cards etc. Tax Advantage 100% of all rentals (lease payment) can be offset against company profits. Payment Budgeting By structuring your payments to suit you, your cash flow is not affected. Payments v Usage By spreading the cost over the whole life of the equipment, it reflects usage (income) and allows for easy replacement if it becomes obsolete.
Most leases operate on a 12, 24 or 36 month period but can be tailored to suit your individual needs. For instance; at time of brochure printing; A typical example; Cost of goods Monthly lease x 36 payments Or weekly equivalent
Flexibility Early settlement and upgrade facilities are available during the lease period.
