Unfortunately, having skin tags does affect your appearance and self-confidence as they more commonly appear on the face and neck, but the good news is; they are super quick and easy to remove with no downtime!
I have a lot of clients ask me how to get rid of skin tags?
Skin tags are extremely common and are just benign skin legions composed of normal skin tissue! They are not a sign of cancer, so they aren’t a source of medical concern and are generally very easy to remove. In saying this it is still very important to get any growth checked! Before any skin tag removal you must have the growth checked and cleared by a medical professional!
BUT WHAT EXACTLY ARE SKIN TAGS?
Skin tags are extremely common and completely benign fleshy overgrowths of the skin. While not dangerous at all, they are often cosmetically bothersome especially if located in an obvious location like the face or neck.
WHO CAN GET SKIN TAGS?
Anyone can get skin tags but they are much more common in adults and occur more frequently in areas of friction including the armpits, groin folds, inner thighs, and around the neck, as well as on the face, around the eyes, and under the breast. Skin tags, comprised of extra skin and fat, have a genetic component to them, and people whose parents had them are more likely to get them themselves. Obesity and pregnancy might contribute to the development of skin tags, as well.
DO I HAVE TO REMOVE THEM?
No you don't have to remove them if they don't aesthetically bother you however, they do grow, they can actually twist on themselves at the base of the stalk where they're attached to the skin, causing redness and pain. Skin tags can rub against clothing or get caught on jewelry, and then they can get really irritated and inflamed. Some people's skin tags even bleed, as they often form in areas of friction like the neck, under the arms, thighs, and even around the eyelids.
WHAT ARE RED SKIN TAGS?
Many people have, or will get, skin tags at some point in their life. They’re usually skin-colored or brown, but sometimes they can become red as they have filled with blood hence they may also bleed. You can develop red skin tags that hurt, or you can easily mistake them for a cherry angioma.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RED SKIN TAGS AND CHERRY ANGIOMAS?
It might be what is called a cherry angioma. They’re bright red and usually round. Most often, they are on the underarms and torso. The difference is that a skin tag is a piece of skin attached to you by a stalk, and a cherry angioma lays flat against your skin, like a wart or genital wart, or may be raised just a little.
HOW ARE SKIN TAGS SAFELY REMOVED?
Its a very easy process whereby we Cauterize the tag with a Plasma Pen.
Cauterization is the process of actually burning off a skin tag. Your therapist will remove the skin tag at its stalk with a carbon arc from a plasma pen to burn away the skin tag. The area will be numbed with a local anesthetic so that you won’t feel a thing. You may experience some mild discomfort after than anesthetic has worn off. This will fade away after a few hours.
WHAT IS THE SKIN TAG CAUTERIZATION HEALING TIME?
The area will feel tender when you’re done. Make sure that the area is kept clean and sterile. It will take a week or two for the skin tag removal area to heal. Obviously, this will depend on the size of the skin tag that’s been removed. A small scab will form that will gradually heal and fall off. You need to be careful not disturb the scab as this could lead to scarring so it is recommended to keep a small bandaid over the area.

Find out what the lip flip procedure involves and how it differs from a dermal lip filler. Check out our Lip Flip Packages!
WHAT IS A LIP FLIP?
Lip flips are a quick, nonsurgical cosmetic procedure during which a medical professional uses a small amount of Anti Wrinkle to make your upper lip look fuller. A lip flip is a quick, in-salon cosmetic procedure approx 10 to 20 minutes. It involves the injection of Anti Wrinkle into your Cupid’s bow, which is the middle of your upper lip, and into the corners of your mouth.
The injection temporarily relaxes the muscles around your lip. This causes the part of your upper lip that’s inside your mouth to “flip” upward and outward, giving your lip a fuller appearance.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
People who opt for the lip flip procedure include those who:
BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES
To decide whether a lip flip is the right procedure for you, it’s helpful to see pictures of real people before and after the lip flip injections.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIP FLIP AND LIP FILLER?
Lip flips and dermal fillers both result in fuller-looking lips. But the procedures differ.
While lip flips only appear to make lips plumper, dermal fillers actually do make lips fuller. In this procedure, a medical professional will inject your lips with a substance made mostly of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps give your skin structure and a hydrated appearance.
Lip flips, on the other hand, use a small amount of Botox to relax the muscles around your upper lip so it turns upward. This makes your lip look fuller, but its actual volume doesn’t increase; it just gets rearranged.
If you want to truly change the shape and volume of your lips, dermal fillers may be a better choice for you.
WHAT'S THE LIP FLIP PROCEDURE LIKE?
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
For 1 to 2 days before the procedure, you’ll need to avoid alcohol and blood thinners like aspirin, which can make swelling worse.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
Here are a few things to know about the lip flip procedure itself:
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
Following a lip flip, you’ll be able to resume most daily activities, though your upper lip may feel slightly numb and look slightly swollen. Here are some post-procedure tips:
How long before I see results?
Following a lip flip, you should begin to see results within a few days and continual improvement for several days after that. You’ll see the full effect of the lip flip approximately 10 to 14 days after the procedure.
It’s important to note that lip flips are not permanent. Results last around 2 to 3 months, since only very small amounts of anti wrinkle are injected into your lips. Once you start to notice that the effects are wearing off, you can choose to maintain your results by having additional anti wrinkle injections.
If you’re looking for a more permanent option, dermal lip fillers last longer - your first session will last around 6 months and each time you get it done after it will last longer and longer.

Brow lamination takes your unruly or thinning brow hair and smoothes it out while also lifting the hair in a more vertical direction. The end result is super smooth brows that look like you have brow gel on them.
With brow lamination, we can raise a client's arch, extend their tails, give them a fuller brow by lifting the brow hair or give them a messy, fluffy brow.

WHAT IS THE BROW LAMINATION PROCESS LIKE?
The in salon treatment process starts off by:
// brushing and gluing the brow hairs so that they are straight and lifted.
// Then we apply the straightening solution onto the brow, which creates a chemical process that breaks down bonds in each hair, allowing them to be fixed into their new shape.
// Next, the brow hairs are neutralised and safely set into their new shape.
// From here, the brows may be tweezed, waxed, or tinted, depending on the look you're going for...
Then a nourishing oil is added to the brows to replenish their moisture after the chemical treatment process.
Brow Lamination is an hour treatment costing $95
Although you can expect your laminated brows to last up to two months, you can prolong the look with a clear brow wax, like the PONi Zebra Brow Gel which we conveniently sell in store and online.

WHAT IS SKIN NEEDLING
Skin Needling is a procedure that uses a bunch of tiny needles to puncture the very first layer of skin. This process works to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and elevates the overall texture of your skin.
We can select the exact depth best for your skin type and condition and use robotic precision delivery to go as deep as 3 millimeters at 0.1-millimeter increments—no other device can. We incorporate LED Light with our skin needling treatments:
BLUE light is helpful for those who suffer from acne, as the light and heat target bacteria that cause breakouts and
RED light increases cell production and restores cell function.
BENEFITS OF SKIN NEEDLING
HOW TO PREPARE FOR SKIN NEEDLING
If you're using any intense topical treatments (such as those containing Retinol), stop using a few days before your treatment and 3 days post treatment!
Avoid direct sun exposure for about three days prior and three days following and ensure you wear your sunscreen!
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT
THE NUMBER 1 QUESTION: Does it hurt?
In short, it is a little uncomfortable but NO it doesnt hurt.
After a deep cleanse, and thorough exfoliation we activate your skin cells under the LED Light, then a DERMAPEN full of micro needles continuously puncture your skin causing thousands of micro punctures causing deliberate micro trauma to the skin which will trigger the skins repair response which is.... COLLAGEN BUILDING!
Your forehead, hairline, and jawline will feel more sensitive than other areas. You will barely felt the needles pass over your cheeks, which is the deepest level of depth.
After the needling, the procedure is followed with a soothing serum and hyaluronic face mask that will feel like heaven.
Whats the downtime?
The great thing about this treatment is there's really no significant downtime. Immediately after your skin will appear slightly red - like mild sun burn but really, it's a no-downtime kind of treatment, so most people leave here a little bit red. A couple of hours later, you're pretty much back to normal, and the next day, you can resume your normal skincare (excluding actives) and normal activities.
Your topical products will penetrate even deeper after needling so, active ingredients will be working there magic at a deeper level. You will see major changes in the appearance of your skin tone and texture!
LED light therapy is a highly effective way to achieve total facial rejuvenation. Unlike intense pulsed light (IPL) and lasers that rely on thermal injury, LED light therapy delivers light emitting diodes, which do not produce any heat. The device delivers this light in precise wavelengths over the skin to regenerate, repair and heal.
The device uses three key forms of light that work to treat a range of skin concerns and conditions:
This light works to stimulate cellular activity. Blood flow increases, leading to greater tissue oxygenation and detoxification. Post-treatment, your skin will appear clearer with less fine line. It will also look and feel more plump and hydrated.
The yellow light stimulates more deeply, leading to a softening of fine lines and improvement of skin tone and texture. This treatment can be combined with cosmetic injectables, chemical peels and other popular treatments to help repair the skin.
This light is great for treating acne-prone skin. Acne results from an obstruction, congestion and inflammation of hair follicles. The key bacteria responsible for the inflammation produces natural chemicals which are sensitive to light at different wavelengths. When stimulated by the blue light, these chemicals will neutralise the bacteria and as a result, the inflammation will subside.
LED light therapy treatments can be used on their own or in conjunction with other treatments, especially to aid in the rejuvenation process with no downtime.
