We live in a world where every minute is accounted for and we cannot afford to lose a second. A makeover lunch is the perfect way to balance time saving with a luxurious treatment.

Here at the Cranley Clinic we offer many treatments that can be completed comfortably under an hour giving you time to get to and from the office and even grab a bite to eat!

From 10 minutes - Botulinum Toxin Therapy

Commonly known as Botox, is used to treat facial lines by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle action is reduced which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.

For facial lines, Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles and takes three to seven days to take effect. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Results can last between three to five months, well worth sacrificing a lunch break at your desk for!

From 20 minutes - Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal is the process of reducing unwanted hair with pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle giving you permanent hair reduction. It is also an effective treatment for folliculitis (infected hair follicles) and ingrown hairs.

Laser hair removal machines use focused light to penetrate the epidermis (top layer) of the skin and target the underlying hair follicle. The light energy is transferred to thermal energy in the hair follicle. The hair’s melanin (pigment) absorbs the thermal energy and weakens the hair follicle gradually destroying it over time. Immediately after treatment, the area will be pink. You will experience mild discomfort during the treatment.

20 minutes - Chemical Peel

There are a variety of medical strength, skin specific peels available that improve the skin by removing the top dead layer of skin helping to improve dull lacklustre skin. It also helps to unblock clogged pores which can help reduce acne formation. Peels stimulate the production of collagen and elastin and speed up the cell renewal process. By removing the top layer of skin, this allows for deeper penetration of active ingredients and moisture into the deeper layers of the skin. After the treatment the skin will have a pinkish glow. There is very little to no downtime immediately after the treatment and you may resume your normal activities.

From 20 minutes – NDYag Vein Treatment

The Cynosure Elite+ laser is a new innovative dual wavelength system used for the treatment of general redness, Rosacea, broken capillaries, brown spots, face and leg veins and hair removal without the downtime associated with traditional lasers.

The laser facial is a pain free treatment for redness and Rosacea and a course of treatments is recommended for optimum results.

30 Minutes – Fillers

Dermal fillers are used for lost volume, lifting, deep wrinkles and scars. The Cranley Clinic uses the safest and least painful of the modern fillers.

Popular areas for filling lines and creases include:

• Frown lines

• Nose to mouth lines

• Lips (for fullness / smokers’ lines)

• Hollow cheeks

The results are instant and can last between 6 – 18 months depending on the type of filler used and the area treated.

Sculptra injections are skin fillers that naturally stimulate your cells to produce its own collagen to reduce lines, some scars and loss of volume of the face.

Areas suitable for Sculptra treatment are:

• Nose to mouth lines

• Marionette lines

• Chin wrinkles

On average, three to four treatment sessions are needed at approximately four weekly intervals. The number of sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person. The achieved results can last more than two years.

30 Minutes – DermaSweep

DermaSweep is a safe, painless and non-invasive exfoliation and multi-level skin resurfacing system that removes dead skin cells and treats a wide variety of skin conditions and skin types. Using a variable level vacuum system, the skin is gently lifted with the bristle application tip which gently vacuums away the dead skin cells.

This stimulates collagen, revitalizes, firms and tones the skin. Epi-Infusion treatments combine exfoliation with delivery of skin specific topical solutions, leaving patients with fresher feeling and better looking skin. The solution is applied under vacuum pressure at the same time the system exfoliates the epidermis (top layer of skin). Skin concerns such as, acne, dull lacklustre skin, dehydration and hyperpigmentation can all be treated with the DermaSweep.

There is no downtime immediately after the treatment and you may resume your normal activities. You will see results after the first treatment but more lasting and significant results will occur after four – six treatments spaced 10 – 14 days apart.

30 Minutes - Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is the application of abrasive medical grade grains/crystals to gently buff away the top dead layer of skin, stimulating the production of new skin cells, collagen and elastin. By removing the top layer of skin, this allows for deeper penetration of active ingredients and moisture into the deeper layers of the skin. Immediately after the treatment the skin feels soft and smooth.

Like the Chemical Peel, after the treatment the skin will have a warm pinkish glow. There is no downtime immediately after the treatment and you may resume your normal activities.

30 minutes - Isolaz

A unique acne therapy treatment that combines a vacuum and broadband light to painlessly treat acne.

When in contact with the skin, the vacuum gently lifts the acne impurities closer to the surface which helps loosen and extract dirt, blackheads, dead skin cells and excess oil from deep within the pores. A painless broadband light helps destroy acne causing bacteria, sloughing off the dead skin cells and reducing the oil production revealing cleaner, healthier, more radiant skin.

The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and the skin will be a pinkish tone immediately after treatment.

From 30 minutes - IPL

IPL is a non-invasive tailor made treatment that can improve a variety of skin conditions such as sun damage, Lentigo (brown spots), Rosacea, erythema (redness), broken capillaries (veins), pigmentation, acne and dull lacklustre skin.

IPL works on the theory of photothermolysis. This occurs when light is absorbed into excess melanin (dark pigment) in your skin and haemoglobin (red colour of your blood vessels). In the skin, the light converts to heat, which damages the abnormal dark or red skin cells whilst leaving the surrounding skin less affected. The pigment cells will naturally move toward the surface of the skin and slough off leaving a lighter, less visible lesion. The red lesions (veins, Rosacea) will gradually fade over time.

Downtime is minimal and a course of between four to six treatment sessions is recommended for long term results.

20 – 50 minutes - Venus Legacy

This treatment is the latest, cutting edge technology for non-surgical body contouring, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening for the face, neck and body. It uses a combination of multi-polar Radiofrequency and Pulsed Magnetic Fields which penetrate deeply, safely and painlessly into the skin causing a thermal reaction in the tissue. This reaction stimulates collagen production, skin tightening, fat and cellulite reduction.

A treatment to one area typically ranges between 20 - 50 minutes and has been described by patients like a ‘warm and relaxing massage’, with benefits.
