14 Jun June Newsletter – JUNE IS ACNE AWARENESS MONTH
As it’s Acne Awareness Month, we asked Martha Stanley, Pure Swiss Aesthetics’ Clinical Trainer & Sales Advisor, for her rundown of the ways the BYONIK® Pulse Triggered Laser and the SLIMYONIK® AIR Bodystyler can help manage acne
5 ways the BYONIK® Pulse Triggered Laser Facial helps to manage Acne
1. Balances skin’s PH and microbiome
The BYONIK® PTL Facial helps manage Acne-prone skin by supporting the skin’s surface pH levels, lipid barrier function and microbiome, to create a healthy environment to achieve a reduction in skin-related diseases.
2. Antibacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-viral
The combination of RED and Near Infra-Red (NIR) Laser light application provides an immediate anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral effect within all levels of the skin, whilst the treatment’s complementing products support the skin’s natural physiological functions, cleansing and preparing the skin without the use of astringents, then finishing with essential ceramides and lipids, reducing the possibility of post treatment breakouts and skin purging.
3. Regenerative wound and scar healing
The BYONIK® works on directed photo-biomodulation within the cells to upregulate the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (cellular energy), to stimulate a “wound-healing” response without any physical skin trauma. The increase in cellular energy helps to increase collagen, elastin and hyaluronic production for a visible improvement in post-acne scarring.
4. Repairs, protects, and stabilises
The BYONIK® Ecto Repair treatment involves the application of the combination of Ectoin and Hyaluronic Acid to first provide anti-inflammatory, membrane stabilising and barrier repair effects, whilst also increasing the overall hydration within the skin and reducing the effects of Trans-Epidermal Water Loss. The Ectoin “shield” allows the skin to normalise, repair and improve its natural functions.
5. Boosts hydration and immunity
The low molecular BYONIK® Hyaluronic Acid gels – which are embedded with antioxidants – are recognised by the skin’s transmembrane receptors, responsible for the detection of unwanted pathogens and the activation of the defence system. This leads to a release of antibodies to improve the skin’s immunity and an increase in antimicrobial, antibacterial and anticandidal activity, preserving the body’s bacterial skin flora.
5 ways the SLIMYONIK® AIR | Bodystyler helps to manage Acne
1. Activates entire lymphatic system
SLIMYONIK® treatments help to increase lymphatic circulation, having a direct positive effect on the body’s immune system. With our immune system working optimally, we are less likely to suffer from disease and chronic inflammation, which can play havoc on our skin health, particularly those suffering with Acne or other inflammatory disorders such as Rosacea.
2. Oxygen delivery increases cell detoxification
The additional inhalation of purified ambient oxygen during the SLIMYONIK® treatment helps to increase cellular respiration, increasing levels of healthy skin constituents and removing the accumulation of unwanted cellular toxins.
3. Increases repair and regenerative responses
The delivery of oxygen helps to initiate the supply of Vaso Endothelial growth factors (VEGF’s), which are essential in the treatment of chronic skin conditions such as Acne and Rosacea, due to their positive effects in instigating repair and reducing the inflammatory processes within the skin.
4. Improves the skin-gut relationship
The SLIMYONIK® treatment helps to create a better relationship between the ‘Skin-gut-axis’ – the link between gut microbiome and healthy, happy skin. Increasing good gut function, and reducing a ‘leaky gut’, lessens the possibility of harmful bacteria and by-products reaching the skin, which could exacerbate the inflammation and proliferation of acne. Improving gut function will also aid the absorption of skin-health supplements, enabling them to get to work more effectively.
5. Manages stress and hormone levels
The systemic approach of 360-degree wellness through pressure therapy massage communicates directly with the parasympathetic nervous system, helping regulate the endocrine system to manage the “stress hormone” cortisol. Although cortisol can be beneficial, with excessive amounts and over long periods of time, this may suppress our immunity. A proven theory of reducing chronic inflammation within the body, has shown to have a direct to improve skin health and reduce inflammatory skin diseases such as Acne.
IG LIVE WITH FACIALIST ANDREA SIMPSON
We were delighted to join Master Facialist Andrea Simpson for an IG Live on our @byonikandslimyonik_uk instagram on the 1st June for an insightful facial demonstration exploring the Bio-Hacking abilities of the BYONIK® Pulse Triggered Laser Treatment.
Andrea commented “I was so incredibly excited to be joined here at the clinic by @byonikandslimyonik_uk for a LIVE BYONIK® Facial Demonstration on Instagram! It was great to discuss the science, technology, ingredients of the device, how it works, what it does, what it can treat, what it feels like, the results and why it’s the star of my clinic!”
CLINIC ACQUISITION NEWS
We would like to introduce two new, exciting clinic acquisitions in Ireland, ORA Clinic in Dublin and Beautiful Touch in County Mayo.
ORA Clinic, Dublin
ORA, a private, tranquil skin destination specialising in achieving natural results for their clients, synonymous with subtle, tailored treatments and beautiful results has just launched the BYONIK® Pulse Triggered Laser at the clinic. Dr Edel Woods BABdentSC is an aesthetic practitioner who graduated from Trinity College Dublin and later founded ORA Clinic in order to create an environment that reflects her philosophy of balance and bespoke beauty. In her clinical practice, her passion is helping her patients to look and feel their best with a focus on long term skin health. She advocates a noticeable but natural approach to treatment and prides herself on achieving subtle but impactful results for every ORA client.
Beautiful Touch, County Mayo
Beautiful Touch is located in the heart of Ballina, Co. Mayo and was founded in 2010 by top aesthetics practitioner Sinead O’Hora. She says “I trialled the BYONIK® on three separate occasions and I can honestly say my skin hadn’t look that good for years, it got better as the week went on. I was completely blown away by the results. BYONIK® ticks all the boxes for me and I am excited to introduce it to the west coast of Ireland. It treats a multitude of skin types and concerns and for me the fact there is no discomfort or downtime is the icing on the cake. BYONIK® is not a harsh or aggressive treatment, it respects the integrity of the skin whilst delivering incredible results, which was very important for me when choosing a new modality for my clinic”.
It was great to see two fabulous treatment reviews of the SLIMYONIK® AIR Bodystyler used in Katie England’s Immersive 360° Treatment at the NoMad Hotel, London, as well as a wonderful BYONIK® review used within a treatment at Lisa Franklin Clinic Privé.
Deputy Editor at Aesthetic Medicine, Kezia Parkins, reviewed the BYONIK® Pulse Triggered Laser at Lisa Franklin Clinic Privé in the June issue of the magazine, stating “This treatment was a godsend after the side effects of deeper RFM. Not only was my skin immediately more hydrated and plump after treatment, but, in the weeks following, it was better able to absorb the moisture from my routine, aiding in its recovery.”
Lollie Hancock at Professional Beauty featured the SLIMYONIK® AIR Bodystyler in the May issue of the magazine, stating “The addition of the SLIMYONIK® took the treatment to a new level, making it a full body and mind experience”.
The Editor of The Salon Magazine, Jade Evans, experienced the SLIMYONIK® within Katie England’s treatment and featured it as her
Aesthetic Treatment of the Month in the May issue
