Treatments at Zen Medical Spa

Bio stimulator injections for the face are a type of cosmetic treatment that involves injecting substances into the skin to stimulate collagen production and enhance facial volume. These injections typically contain bio-stimulating substances such as polycaprolactone (PCL) or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). When these substances are injected into the skin, they stimulate the body's natural collagen production process. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin, making it firm and elastic. As we age, our collagen levels decrease, leading to sagging skin and loss of volume. Bio stimulator injections help to counteract this by stimulating the production of new collagen, which can improve skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and restore facial volume. The results of bio stimulator injections are not immediate and usually develop gradually over several weeks to months as collagen production increases. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. The effects of these injections can last for a year or more, depending on the individual and the specific products used. 
The eMatrix fractional laser is a type of skin rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including acne scars, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and pigmentation issues. It is a non-surgical procedure that can provide significant results with minimal downtime.

The eMatrix fractional laser works by delivering radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin through a grid of tiny micro-needles. This energy heats up the targeted areas, stimulating collagen production and triggering the skin's natural healing response. The energy is delivered in a fractional pattern, meaning that it treats only a fraction of the skin's surface, leaving surrounding tissue intact. This fractional approach helps to promote faster healing and minimizes the risk of complications.

The eMatrix fractional laser offers several advantages:

1. Versatility: The treatment can be customized to address a wide range of skin concerns, including acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation issues, and skin laxity.

2. Minimal Downtime: Compared to traditional laser treatments, the eMatrix fractional laser typically has minimal downtime. Patients may experience mild redness and swelling, which usually subside within a few days.

3. Suitable for All Skin Types: The eMatrix fractional laser is safe and effective for all skin types, including darker skin tones, which may be more prone to complications with other laser treatments.

4. Gradual Results: The improvement in skin texture and appearance occurs gradually over time as the collagen production is stimulated and the skin's natural healing processes take place. Most patients see noticeable results after a series of treatment sessions.

It's important to consult with a dermatologist or a qualified medical professional to determine if eMatrix fractional laser treatment is suitable for your specific skin concerns and to discuss your expected outcomes and potential risks. They will be able to assess your skin condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
Fractional CO2 laser is a type of laser treatment that uses carbon dioxide (CO2) as the laser source to target specific areas of the skin. It is a non-surgical procedure that can address various skin concerns, including wrinkles, scars, pigmentation issues, and skin laxity.

The term "fractional" refers to the way the laser energy is delivered to the skin. Instead of treating the entire skin surface, the laser is divided into multiple microscopic beams that create tiny columns of thermal damage in the skin. These columns are surrounded by healthy tissue, which helps in the healing process and promotes faster recovery.

During the treatment, the fractional CO2 laser is passed over the skin, delivering controlled bursts of laser energy. This energy is absorbed by the water in the skin cells, creating a thermal effect that stimulates collagen production and triggers the skin's natural healing response.

The benefits of fractional CO2 laser treatment include skin rejuvenation, scar reduction, pigmentation correction, and skin tightening. It is a versatile treatment that can be customized based on the specific concerns and needs of the individual.

The specific settings and number of treatment sessions may vary depending on the individual's skin condition and desired results.
At Zen Medi Spa we have the expertise and experience to treat skins of color with our vast array of procedures.
Benefits include:
1. Skin Rejuvenation: Fractional CO2 laser can help improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. It stimulates collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. It helps to rejuvenate the skin and promote a more youthful appearance.

2. Scar Reduction: Fractional CO2 laser treatment is effective in reducing the appearance of scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. The laser stimulates the production of new collagen, which helps to remodel the scar tissue and improve its texture and appearance.

3. Pigmentation Correction: This treatment can also address various pigmentation issues, such as sunspots, age spots, and uneven skin tone. The laser targets the pigmented areas, breaking down the excess pigment and promoting a more even complexion.

4. Skin Tightening: Fractional CO2 laser treatment can help tighten loose or sagging skin. The laser energy stimulates collagen production, which improves skin elasticity and firmness. This can be beneficial for areas like the face, neck, and abdomen.

5. Minimal Downtime: Compared to traditional CO2 laser resurfacing, fractional CO2 laser treatment has a shorter recovery time. The treatment is done in a fractionated manner, targeting only a portion of the skin, leaving the surrounding areas intact. This promotes faster healing and reduces downtime.

6. Long-lasting Results: Fractional CO2 laser treatment provides long-lasting results. The collagen production stimulated by the laser continues for several months after the treatment, leading to gradual improvements in the skin's appearance.
7.  Acne Scarring : By stimulating collagen production fractional CO2 fills in acne scars and pitting .  
8.  Stretchmarks: This deep treatment provides dermal repair to tighten and fade stretch marks.

It's important to note that the specific benefits and results may vary depending on individual factors and the specific treatment plan. It's best to consult with our professional to determine if fractional CO2 laser treatment is suitable for your specific needs.


Micro Botox Facial
By using tiny amounts of Botox, we help Micro Botox patients
create subtle effects for noticeable results. 

Recognizing the overwhelming need for smooth flawless skin, Zen Medi Spa recently added a new procedure, called Micro- Botox, to our extensive array of beauty treatments.

Micro-Botox makes the skin look delicate, poreless and lifted. The injections are performed on a superficial level and do not affect the muscles involved in facial expression, like “conventional” Botox injections. It is the perfect solution for anyone suffering from large pores, oily or acne.

Also known as intradermal Botox, this treatment works by targeting the sweat and oil glands in the skin as well as the erector pili muscles, which are responsible for opening the pores. By temporarily weakening these muscles and glands, the skin becomes noticeably tighter, smoother and more
refined. The procedure makes the skin of your face look delicate, poreless and lifted.

For Skin Lightening, Brightening and Pigmentation
Glutathione IV therapy has gained popularity for its potential benefits in minimizing dark marks and pigment disorders. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant naturally produced in the body, and it plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin. When administered intravenously, glutathione can have several effects that contribute to skin lightening and reducing the appearance of dark marks and pigment disorders.

1. Antioxidant Activity: Glutathione acts as an antioxidant, protecting the skin cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can contribute to skin pigmentation disorders by triggering the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. By neutralizing free radicals, glutathione helps to prevent the formation and accumulation of excess melanin, thereby reducing pigmentation issues.

2. Inhibition of Melanin Production: Glutathione inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase, which is involved in the production of melanin. By suppressing tyrosinase activity, glutathione can help to regulate melanin synthesis, leading to a more even skin tone and reducing the appearance of dark marks and pigmentation disorders.

3. Detoxification: Glutathione is involved in the detoxification process within the body. It helps to eliminate toxins and waste products, which can contribute to skin discoloration and pigmentation issues. By supporting the body's detoxification mechanisms, glutathione IV therapy can promote clearer and healthier-looking skin.

It's important to note that the effects of glutathione IV therapy can vary from person to person, and results may take time to become noticeable. 

Additionally, it's essential to address the underlying causes of pigmentation disorders, such as sun exposure, hormonal imbalances, or inflammation, in order to achieve long-lasting results. With our naturopathic and aesthetic consult a comprehensive approach that combines glutathione IV therapy with other skincare treatments, sun protection, and a healthy lifestyle can help to maximize the benefits and improve skin health overall.
For Immune Function 
Many people suffer from vitamin deficiencies that can have a negative impact on their overall well-being, including their skin and immune system. At Zen Medical Spa in Umhlanga Durban, we offer IV infusions that are packed with essential micronutrients to give your immune system a much-needed boost and revitalize your body.

Whether you're starting to feel a cold coming on or simply feeling tired and drained, our IV infusions can provide the perfect solution. By delivering the micronutrients directly into your bloodstream through an intravenous infusion, you can ensure that your body receives the maximum benefits. This is much more effective than relying on the absorption rates of typical vitamin supplements in your digestive system and gastrointestinal tract.

Choose from a variety of IV infusion options to give your immune system an immediate surge of nutrients and energy. Don't let vitamin deficiencies hold you back.  
For chelation 
IV drip therapy can be beneficial in chelation therapy by delivering chelating agents directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous drip. Chelation therapy is a medical procedure used to remove heavy metals and other toxins from the body. IV drip therapy can enhance the effectiveness of chelation by ensuring that the chelating agents reach the targeted areas efficiently.

During chelation therapy, specific chelating agents are administered intravenously. These agents bind to heavy metals and other toxins in the bloodstream, forming a chelate complex. The complex is then excreted through the kidneys.

IV drip therapy allows for a controlled and continuous infusion of chelating agents, ensuring a consistent and optimal concentration in the bloodstream. This method helps to maximize the effectiveness of chelation therapy by maintaining a steady level of chelating agents in the body over a specified period.

By using IV drip therapy for chelation, healthcare professionals can closely monitor the dosage and adjust it as needed. This personalized approach ensures that the therapy is tailored to the individual's specific needs and medical condition, optimizing the results.

At Zen Medi Spa we offer a full body scan to determine the levels of heavy metals in the body before IV therapy for chelation purposes.

One of the least invasive procedures for tattoo removal is laser tattoo removal. The laser’s light energy is absorbed into the artificial ink. With each treatment, the tattoo successively becomes lighter and is gradually removed. Multiple sessions are recommended but it also depends if the tattoo is amateur or professional.

Laser Tattoo Removal refers to the non-invasive removal of tattoo ink pigment – using specific lasers. The laser breaks down the ink particles of the tattoo on the skin. The fragmented ink pigment is then flushed away through the body’s lymphatic system. Not all particles are broken down during one laser session.

Hence, several treatment sessions are needed to effectively remove a tattoo.

Mesotherapy is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a combination of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, hormones, and other substances into the middle layer of the skin (mesoderm) to address various skin concerns, including melasma. In the context of melasma, mesotherapy can improve the condition by: 
 1. Reducing Pigmentation: The injected substances in mesotherapy can include ingredients that help inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for melasma. These ingredients can help lighten the dark patches and even out the skin tone. 
 2. Promoting Cell Turnover: Mesotherapy can stimulate the turnover of skin cells, promoting the shedding of the pigmented cells and encouraging the growth of new, healthy cells. This can contribute to the lightening of melasma patches. 
 3. Enhancing Blood Circulation: The microinjections performed during mesotherapy can improve blood circulation in the treated area. Better blood flow can deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin, aiding in the repair and rejuvenation process. 
 4. Boosting Collagen Production: Some substances used in mesotherapy, such as vitamins and peptides, can stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is a protein that helps improve skin texture and elasticity, making the skin look smoother and more youthful. It's important to note that the effectiveness of mesotherapy for melasma may vary from person to person. 
The results can depend on various factors, including the severity of the melasma, individual skin type, and the skill of the practitioner performing the procedure. It's recommended to consult with our practitioner to determine if mesotherapy is a suitable option for your specific case of melasma or if a combination treatment is required.

2. Tattoo Removal: Pico lasers are considered one of the most advanced methods for tattoo removal. The ultra-short pulses of laser energy can efficiently break down the ink particles, allowing the body's natural processes to eliminate them. Pico lasers are particularly effective in removing stubborn and multicolored tattoos.

3. Acne Scars: Pico lasers can help improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen and elastin production in the skin. This promotes skin remodeling and helps to reduce the depth and visibility of acne scars, resulting in smoother and more even skin texture.

4. Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Pico lasers can stimulate collagen and elastin production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The laser energy promotes skin rejuvenation, leading to a more youthful and smoother complexion.

5. Skin Rejuvenation: Pico lasers can be used for overall skin rejuvenation, targeting various signs of aging such as uneven skin tone, texture irregularities, and dullness. The treatment stimulates collagen production, resulting in a fresher and more radiant complexion.
Revlite laser is a type of laser treatment that is often used for various skin conditions, including melasma. Melasma is a common skin pigmentation disorder characterized by brown or gray patches on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. The Revlite laser works by emitting short pulses of high-energy light that target the excess melanin (pigment) in the skin. This light energy is absorbed by the melanin, causing it to break down into smaller particles. Over time, the body's natural processes eliminate these particles, resulting in a lightening of the skin and reduction of pigmentation. The benefits of Revlite laser for melasma include: 
 1. Pigmentation Reduction: Revlite laser specifically targets the excess melanin in the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of melasma patches and even out skin tone. 
 2. Non-Invasive: Revlite laser treatment is non-invasive, meaning it does not require any incisions or surgical procedures. It is a safe and relatively painless treatment option. 
 3. Minimal Downtime: The recovery time after a Revlite laser treatment is minimal. Most people can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure, as there is usually no significant discomfort or side effects. 
 4. Customizable Treatment: The Revlite laser can be adjusted to target specific areas of pigmentation and can be tailored to the individual needs of each patient. This allows for precise treatment and optimal results. 
 5. Stimulates Collagen Production: In addition to reducing pigmentation, Revlite laser treatment also stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a protein that helps improve skin elasticity and texture, resulting in a more youthful appearance. It is important to note that the effectiveness of Revlite laser treatment for melasma may vary from person to person. 
It is recommended to consult our practitioner to determine if Revlite laser is the right treatment option for your specific case of melasma.
