Acne Treatment (Back)
Although acne usually appears on the face, it can also develop on other parts of the body such as the back, arms, and neck. To treat hard-to-reach areas like the back, Skinlux offers its comprehensive acne treatment that deals with the main causes of acne: dirt, bacteria, and excessive oil. The procedure starts by cleaning the area, leaving the back feeling refreshed, cleaned, and hydrated. This is followed by the use of laser energies (blue light and bipolar radiofrequency) that control oil production and eliminate existing bacteria. Keratolyse is also used to exfoliate the skin to lighten acne scars.
Acne Treatment (Face)
SkinLux recommends a combination of a comprehensive facial and laser therapy to treat, control, and eventually prevent further development of acne on the face. The clinic uses SOFT NET cream that gently cleanses sensitive, acne-prone, and oily skin without stripping hydrolipidic film, moisturizing and hydrating the skin in the process. It is also combined with Keratolyse, a purifying mask that prevents future breakouts. As acne is caused by bacteria and excessive sebum (oil) production, Skinlux facial is followed by laser therapy to disinfect the skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells to lighten scars. Depending on the severity of the condition, a couple of treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
Acne facial Plus (Acne Facial + Acne Clear Laser)
SkinLux’s Acne Facial Plus is one of the most effective methods of treating and preventing acne as well as eliminating the scars that it leaves behind. It is composed of an acne facial that uses SOFT NET cleansing cream from Nelly De Vuyst, which gently cleanses acne-prone or oily skin by lifting dirt while keeping the hydrolipidic film intact. It is followed by the application of toner to minimize skin dryness that helps breed bacteria. This procedure is also complemented by acne clear laser, which uses two laser therapies to kill bacteria and reduce the excessive production of oil.
Botox is a quick procedure to temporarily eliminate the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. A drug made from a toxin, Botox works by paralyzing the facial muscles so they will stop contracting, effectively eliminating lines on the forehead, around the eye area, and the area between the brows. The procedure involves the use of a local numbing cream that reduces discomfort. The drug is then injected directly into the targeted areas of the face. The procedure lasts a couple of minutes per treated area and the effects are visible as early as 5-7 days.
Bust Firming Treatment
One of the major signs of aging is the loss of skin elasticity that leads to ptosis or sagging breasts. To delay the effect, SkinLux offers a bust firming treatment using Crème Raffermissante Firming Cream from Europe’s brand Nelly De Vuyst. It maintains the skin’s elasticity by firming the bust, energizing the skin cells, and strengthening the skin’s cutaneous layer. To create a more even lifting effect, the cream can also be applied to the neck, face, and the rest of the chest to achieve an overall younger-looking appearance.
Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive method to achieve a visibly more youthful appearance. In this technique, FDA-approved fillers made of biocompatible collagen, hyaluronic acid, or other synthetic substances are injected into the hallowed or wrinkled parts of the face. Fillers, as the name suggest, fill the areas that have lost volume, giving you a much younger-looking appearance. When compared to traditional facelift, dermal fillers are much more cost-effective and do not require any downtime. However, the results are only temporary lasting for about two years, after which, the procedure can be repeated to achieve a longer lasting effect.
Ear Candling with Lymphatic Drainage
Also referred to as Thermal Auricular Therapy or ear coning, ear candling is a holistic and natural way of treating health conditions affecting the ears as well as improving the body’s overall health and well-being. In this procedure, a candle is lit and placed a few centimeters from the ear of the patient, who will be lying on the opposite ear. The heat of the candle will be made to reach the ear canal, melting the earwax and removing the built-up toxins in the process. To avoid the candle drippings from burning the skin, the candle will be inserted into an aluminum plate.
Exilis Slimming Treatment (Abdomen)
People who have stubborn fat in the abdomen or back can benefit from the Exilis slimming treatment offered by Skinlux. This brand-new, FDA-approved, and safe technology makes use of radio frequency to eliminate fat buildup. The frequency, when applied to the affected area, breaks the fat deposits apart, contouring the back and abdomen in the process, and tightens the skin by increasing the production of collagen. It takes around half an hour for each treatment, which doesn’t require any special preparation or downtime.
Exilis Slimming Treatment (Arms)
Anyone who has fat buildup in the arms or sagging skin that leads to bat wings can benefit from a non-invasive, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment called Exilis. This technology uses customized radio frequency to increase metabolic activity and blast off the clustered fat cells underneath the upper layer of the skin of the arms without harming the epidermis. This technology also stimulates the production of collagen, the natural fiber of the body, to tighten the skin, reducing laxity or sagging. The treatment lasts for only 30 minutes and doesn’t have any downtime, although it may take at least three sessions to achieve the desired results.
Exilis Slimming Treatment (Back of Abdomen)
Fat in the abdomen and back can be removed through SkinLux's Exilis slimming treatment. This brand new procedure, which is FDA-approved, makes use of radio frequency that can be customized depending on the amount of fat buildup and desired results. The frequency, when applied to the treated area, breaks the fat, giving the back and abdomen better shape and contour. It also tightens the skin as it encourages the production of collagen. The treatment can last between 30 to 60 minutes and does not require downtime.
Exilis Slimming Treatment (Face)
Exilis slimming treatment is a breakthrough non-invasive aesthetic method that eliminates stubborn fat buildup and sagging skin without going through invasive surgery such as liposuction or surgical lifting procedures (e.g. breast lift, arm lift, etc.) This procedure uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat up fat cells found in the deeper layers of the skin, effectively breaking them up while firming surrounding skin tissue. This non-invasive technique is exceptionally safe and pain-free, providing you a slimmer, more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance with absolutely no downtime. Each treatment lasts up to 30 minutes, after which visible results are seen. Four to five sessions spaced a few weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.
Exilis Slimming Treatment (Thighs)
Exilis slimming treatment is a revolutionary technology that removes stubborn fat buildup in the thighs. The technique is non-invasive; unlike surgery or liposuction, you will achieve a slimmer figure with absolutely no downtime, making this procedure perfect for patients who have an on-the-go lifestyle. With Exilis, controlled radiofrequency is used to rapidly heat up fat deposits in the thighs, breaking them up and eliminating them. At the end of one session, you can enjoy remarkably slimmer, toned and firm thighs. To achieve optimum results, at least four sessions are recommended.
Glutathione is a widely popular and proven effective antioxidant that can help achieve visibly whiter and more beautiful skin. This supplement is administered into the body commonly through intravenous injections or glutathione pills. As an antioxidant, glutathione works by ridding the body of toxins and free radicals that cause hyperpigmentation, melasma and skin darkening. Regular intake of glutathione can lead to a lighter complexion as well as a flawless, more beautiful skin. Glutathione can also boost the immune system to achieve an overall healthy body.
Hydra Skin Rejuvenating Facial (Hydra+Revlite)
The Hydra facial treatment combines the benefits of hydra skin rejuvenation with state-of-the-art RevLite laser technology to achieve superior and immediate results. The non-laser Hydra Facial treatment brings together cleansing, exfoliation and extraction with hydration and anti-oxidant protection for a visibly clearer and more beautiful skin. RevLite laser technology supplements these effects by disturbing the inner layers of the skin to stimulate the production of natural collagen while destroying melanin responsible for darkening and skin pigmentation. The Hydra+RevLite combination rejuvenates the skin inside and out to give you flawless and beautiful skin with absolutely no downtime.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Skin Rejuvenation
IPL skin rejuvenation, also known as photo-rejuvenation is a non-invasive and safe aesthetic procedure that improves the skin’s texture, complexion, tone and overall appearance. In this technique, a handheld intense pulsed light (IPL) device delivers a spectrum of light onto the surface of the skin. The light beams penetrate deep into the skin layers to stimulate the production of collagen and break down and eliminate damaged skin cells. IPL effectively reduces redness caused by broken capillaries, eliminates spider veins, treats imperfections caused by sun damage, removes age spots and melasma, reduces pore size, and decreases wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes and does not require any downtime.
Laser Hair Removal (Upper Lip)
SkinLux uses revolutionary eMax Laser System for removing unwanted hair on the upper lips. Highly effective, it is proven safe to be used on all skin types and tone. Prior to the procedure, a local anaesthetic will be applied before the handheld device that emits intense laser pulses is moved across the targeted area. Most patients describe the sensation as a rubber band snapping the skin, but it is tolerable. The initial treatment will leave your upper lip hair-free for about four to six weeks. Multiple treatments will be required to achieve permanent results.
RevLite is the next generation in aesthetic laser technology that can rejuvenate and make your arms and underarms feel softer and look more toned, achieving a significantly more youthful appearance. It is also used for tattoo removal and scar reduction. In this procedure, a special handpiece is passed over the arms, carefully dispensing laser energy that targets the deep layers of the arm tissue. The laser energy effectively stimulates the production of natural collagen while destroying melanin responsible for age spots, sun spots, freckles and pigmentation. Great results are noticeable in just one session.
RevLite (Bikini Area)
Aiming for that perfect, flawless bikini area? RevLite breakthrough laser technology can help you achieve just that - and more. RevLite utilizes state-of-the-art aesthetic laser technology that penetrates the deep layers of the skin for superior skin rejuvenation without pain, discomfort or downtime. In this technique, a special device that emits bursts of laser energy is applied to the bikini area. The laser technology effectively disturbs the deep layers of the skin while leaving the top layer unharmed. It stimulates the production of collagen, destroys melanin cells responsible for darkening and hyperpigmentation, and reduces pore size. After only a few minutes, you will experience an overall improvement in texture, complexion, and appearance in the bikini area - just the way you want it.
The elbows are one of the most conspicuous parts of the body that are prone to darkening due to friction and contact. But thanks to state-of-the-art laser whitening technology, you can whiten your elbows and knees without experiencing pain or discomfort. RevLite is the gold standard today for skin rejuvenation and lightening. In this procedure, concentrated bursts of laser are applied and absorbed by the inner layers of the skin, destroying melanin that is responsible for skin darkening. It also stimulates the formation of natural collagen, resulting in growth of new skin cells. After the 15-30 minute session, you will notice lighter, fully rejuvenated elbows that feel unbelievably smooth and toned.
RevLite (Face and Neck)
RevLite is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses light therapy to clear away age spots, liver spots, and other types of skin irregularities. It can also be used for the knees to improve skin texture and complexion, making it lighter and smoother. The procedure uses short bursts of light for up to an hour, depending on the skin type and size of the affected area, and it is absorbed by the cells that produce the pigments. The skin may swell a little although it’s expected to subside within 24 hours. Redness may remain for a few weeks before the skin starts clearing up, revealing a better tone.
RevLite is an innovative light therapy that is typically used on the legs to significantly reduce hair growth, improve the skin’s texture, and remove whatever blemishes and spots that may have been caused by long-term exposure to the sun and aging. In this procedure, bursts of laser energy are delivered into the deeper part of the skin, preventing the cells from producing more pigments and the follicles from growing more hair. As a non-invasive technology, it doesn’t have any negative effect on the top skin layer other than swelling and redness that should disappear within 24 hours following the treatment.
Pigmented lesions on the neck such as age and liver spots, as well as other blemishes that can lead to uneven skin tone and aged skin, can be treated with a special laser skin therapy known as Revlite. A completely non-invasive procedure, it doesn’t require any special preparation and anesthetic. It sends short but intense light pulses that penetrate the deeper part of the skin to control the production of pigment and stimulate the production of collagen that makes the skin appear supple and smooth. Depending on the quality of the skin, Revlite is performed for less than an hour and for a few sessions to achieve the desired results.
Constant plucking and shaving can leave the underarm skin feeling rough (called chicken skin). While certain skin care products can improve the appearance of the area, RevLite is considered as one of the best and most effective options. By using short bursts of laser energy that go deep into the skin, the technology can improve the texture and clarity by making the pores appear smaller, and lightening the skin by controlling pigmentation and growth of hair in the follicles. This non-invasive procedure takes at least 15 minutes to an hour depending on the condition of the skin and desired results.
Revlite Plus (Express Facial + Revlite + IPL Rejuvenation)
SkinLux exclusively offers a procedure known as Revlite Plus, which is a combination of Revlite, IPL technology for photorejuvenation, and express facial. Revlite uses laser therapy to improve the texture and tone of the skin, making it appear lighter, smoother, and more younger-looking. IPL, on other hand, makes use of intense pulse light to treat vascular lesions including but not limited to spider veins and age spots usually caused by prolonged sun exposure and aging. To make the skin more receptive to these treatments, further reduce blemishes, and clean the face, a facial is often performed prior to the two procedures.
Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that reduces or completely eliminates the appearance of vascular lesions such as spider and varicose veins. This can also be performed to decrease swelling and cramps. In this procedure, a solution is injected into the affected veins, forcing them to collapse. This then compels the body to immediately redirect the blood flow to other healthy veins while the damaged and treated veins are later absorbed by the body. Depending on the veins that have to be treated, it may take a couple of sessions to see the desired results, although each can decrease the vein appearance by as much as 50%.
Skin Rejuvenating Facial (Express Facial + Revlite)
SkinLux’s skin rejuvenating facial includes an express facial and Revlite treatment. Express facial refers to the relaxing non-invasive technique of improving the skin condition of the face in only 30 minutes, in which during this time, the skin is cleansed, exfoliated, and toned. This is then followed by Revlite, which decreases or eliminates the appearance of vascular lesions such as age and sunspots, among others. It uses laser energy to prevent cells from producing these pigments while stimulating the production of collagen. While several treatments may be needed depending on the results wanted, each session doesn’t require any downtime.
Skin Tightening Facial (Express Facial+Refirme) for Face
To delay the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines, as well as to improve the skin condition, especially its laxity, texture, and tone, Skinlux recommends its skin tightening facial treatment that is composed of express facial and Refirme. The express facial, which takes just 30 minutes, deeply cleanses and exfoliates the skin, making it smoother to touch. It is then followed up with EmaxRefirme, which uses two types of technology, infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency, that penetrate the dermis and enhance the production of collagen to create a lifting effect.
Skin Tightening Facial (Express Facial+Refirme) for Face and Eyes
As the person ages, her or his body produces less and less collagen leading to the appearance of signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. Compounding the problem is the long-term exposure to the sun that leads to vascular lesions such as age or sun spots. To significantly improve the appearance of the facial skin and create a lifting effect, Skinlux offers a combo of Emax Refirme and express facial for the eyes and face. Emax Refirme utilizes two light technologies that increase the production of collagen to prevent or delay skin laxity while express facial further improves skin texture and tone by deeply cleansing and exfoliating the facial skin for about 30 minutes.
Skin tightening Treatment (Refirme) Neck
When the skin starts to age, one of the most affected areas is the neck, where the skin loses its elasticity and jowls become more visible. To combat the effects of aging, Skinlux offers a quick skin tightening treatment known as Emax Refirme. This technology uses two different types of light therapy; bipolar radiofrequency as well as intense pulse light, both of which penetrate the skin and encourage the production of collagen, providing a quick lifting effect. Refirme can also be used on other parts of the face such as the eye area to achieve a younger-looking appearance.
SkinLux Acne Facial
Acne is a common skin condition that develops when oil combines with bacteria and dirt in the pores.

Keratolyse is applied following a deep facial cleansing to achieve optimum results.
SkinLux Body Scrub

Depending on the desired results or preference of the client, this can be combined with Revlite to treat vascular lesions and Refirme to tighten the skin.
SkinLux Facial - Bust Firming Treatment
Breasts can sag or lose their elasticity usually due to aging and the gradual loss of collagen, a natural fiber that holds the skin together and makes it elastic and supple. For a non-invasive treatment and mild breast laxity, SkinLux recommends bust firming using a specially concocted firming cream, NellyDevuyst. When applied to the neck and bust areas, the cream enhances the strength of the layer of the skin so it stays firmer. Blood circulation and metabolism are also improved because of the massage techniques used. The product revitalizes the skin by renewing cells and tones the skin.
SkinLux Four Hand Massage
Also known as duo massage or abhyanga (in Ayurvedic treatment), a four-hand massage is a type of massage and relaxation technique that involves a pair of therapists working simultaneously and mirroring one another. With the four-hands massage, the desired positive effects such as reduced stress, pain relief, and better blood circulation are experienced more quickly and effectively.

SkinLux Laser Hair Removal (Back)
SkinLux offers a safe, quick procedure that uses laser to eliminate unwanted hair from different parts of the body including the back. A controlled amount of light is delivered into the follicles where the hair originates, destroying them. This removes the existing hair and stops the production of new ones temporarily (about four to six weeks following the initial treatment). When the treatment is performed repeatedly, hair appears lighter, thinner, and finer, so it becomes less visible. This treatment doesn’t harm the upper layer of the skin, even if the procedure is performed several times, which is necessary if you want to achieve permanent results.
SkinLux Laser Hair Removal (Bikini)
Removing hair from the bikini area can be tricky as it is one of the most sensitive parts of the body that easily reacts negatively to shaving, waxing, and plucking. To reduce hair growth in the area, Skinlux offers laser hair removal. Laser is delivered through an easy-to-grip handpiece, and the intense heat goes through the deeper layers of the skin where the follicles, which create the hair, can be found. Laser is then absorbed by the follicles, eventually destroying them. Any existing hair can then be easily shaved while the area stops producing hair for about four to six weeks. Patients who seek permanent results should have the procedure repeated for six to eight times, with sessions spaced four to six weeks apart.

SkinLux Laser Hair Removal (Chest)

By using the eMax Laser System, the procedure eliminates chest hair safely and permanently after about six to eight sessions. The laser only destroys the hair follicles and leaves the surrounding skin undamaged.

A local anesthetic is applied to minimize discomfort or pain.

SkinLux Signature Facial
SkinLux offers an exclusive signature facial that takes only a few moments of your time.

SkinLux Slimming Massage
While getting a massage is one of the best ways to relieve stress and relax, it can also be performed to shed off excess pounds to achieve a healthier, younger-looking, and more contoured body.

It also promotes improved blood circulation, allowing the much-needed nutrients to reach different cells and increase oxygenation, which also helps in removing toxins. Skinlux Slimming Massage can decrease the appearance of cellulite, boost energy, tighten the muscles, and reduce water retention and bloating.
Laser technology is now being used to make tattoos hardly noticeable. Prior to the procedure, a specialist at Skinlux will make a thorough assessment to determine how long the treatment will take before the desired results are achieved. While simple, small tattoos require one to three sessions, huge, multi-coloured ones may require up to ten sessions. In the procedure, a local anaesthetic will be used to numb the treated area. The laser will then penetrate the deeper layer of the skin, breaking up the tattoo pigment to fragment, allowing the body to absorb it. The technology used targets only the pigment of the tattoo and leaves surrounding skin unharmed. The procedure can take minutes or hours depending on the type of tattoo that you have.
At SkinLux, warts removal entails performing electrocautery where electric therapy is used to cauterize or cut warts from the skin. When compared to other methods used, this technique helps reduce bleeding and speeds up the healing process. The procedure is performed using topical anaesthesia to minimize discomfort or pain. Warts removal can last for a few hours, and depending on the number of warts, patients may need multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.
Whitening Facial Treatment
At SkinLux, whitening facial treatments include the injection of glutathione that is proven to be highly effective in detoxifying the body, strengthening the immune system, and improving health and well-being. This antioxidant prevents free radicals and recycles vitamin E and C, which can become unstable over time. The “side effect” of taking this supplement includes whitening the skin. For a more effective absorption as well as to achieve the desired results faster, SkinLux specialists inject the antioxidant directly to the body. The injections can lighten skin spots and blemishes, improve skin texture, and repair and build tissue.
Whitening Treatment (Bikini)
Due to friction and natural hyperpigmentation of the skin, the bikini area can darken, reducing the level of self-confidence of women who may want to wear shorts or swimsuits. To lighten the area, Skinlux highly recommends its whitening treatment using glutathione injections. As a natural antioxidant, glutathione, which is naturally produced by the body, eliminates or controls free radicals and allows vitamins C and E to last longer and be more useful to the body. The procedure lasts for just a couple of minutes and is not painful. However, a numbing cream can be applied if you feel any discomfort. The desired results are noticeable a couple of weeks following the injections although multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimum results.
Whitening Treatment (Full Back)
SkinLux offers a full back whitening treatment that will leave this side of your body looking several shades lighter and younger-looking using Glutathione injections. Glutathione has been scientifically proven to significantly whiten skin. With the right dose, you can quickly match the skin tone on your back with the rest of your body. Since glutathione is also an effective anti-oxidant, you’ll also be able to take advantage of the added health benefits such as stronger immune systems and fewer acne breakouts.
Whitening Treatment (Full Legs)

SkinLux offers the perfect solution to match the colour of your legs to the rest of your body -- full legs whitening treatment using Glutathione injections.
