What is Signature NeoClear facial?
Our Signature NeoClear facial is an 8 step process designed to deeply purify the skin and target acne concerns, leaving your skin looking clear, healthy and radiant. This treatment is ideal for those with acne and blemish prone skin.
Our customisable multi approach facial allows all skin types to benefit from this treatment. Fitzpatrick skin typing is a system used to categorise different skin types based on their reaction to sunlight. It helps determine how sensitive or resistant a person’s skin is to sun exposure. There are six categories, Fitzpatrick skin types 1 to 6, with type 1 being very fair and sun-sensitive, and type 6 being very dark and sun-resistant.
What is Acne?
Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point. It causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that’s hot or painful to touch. There are 6 main types of spot caused by acne:
- Blackheads – small black or yellowish bumps that develop on the skin; they’re not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces colour
- Whiteheads – have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and will not empty when squeezed
- Papules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sore
- Pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pus
- Nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful
- Cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they’re large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring

What happens during the treatment?
For your safety, Mr Olivier Amar will first carefully assess your face and take a medical history before considering the correct course of treatment for you. Any proposed treatment will be explained in detail, along with the benefits, drawbacks of any recommended procedures and the alternative options. Performed by our Aesthetic Practitioner, Samantha, the treatment begins with a manual deep cleanse to unclog pores and eliminate impurities. Next, a second cleanse, using a hydra-dermabrasion tool, exfoliates the skin, unveiling a radiant and refreshed complexion.
A purifying steam follows, prepping the skin for an ultrasonic extraction and a two step medical grade peel. We then introduce the NeoClear laser, specifically designed to target and treat acne concerns. It targets acne from 3 directions, by destroying spot causing bacteria on the surface of the skin, promoting collagen to assist in reducing the appearance of scarring and reducing sebum activity to lesson oiliness and clogging of pores.
To further enhance the skin’s vitality, an enzyme mask is applied to gently eliminate dead skin cells. The treatment concludes with LED light therapy to stimulate collagen production and an application of medical grade skincare with SPF to protect the skin for your journey home.

What is NeoClear by Aerolase treatment?
NeoClear by Aerolase is a new method of acne treatment that uses unique laser technology to gently deliver powerful energy for quick, side-effect-free results. Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. The laser energy destroys acne bacteria and reduces inflammation to control your current breakouts while inhibiting sebum and oil output to lessen the likelihood of future breakouts.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR TREATMENT?
It is best to arrive at your appointment with your skin as best prepared for your treatment as it can be. Before the treatment, you will need to completely clean your skin with a cleanser to remove any lotions, makeup, or other substances on the skin. This ensures that the treatment will be able to achieve the best results possible.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
Everyone’s skin is unique and therefore reacts differently to treatment. Some patients will notice an enhanced clearance and quality of skin after each treatment, while others may need a treatment course of four – six laser sessions to control their current breakout.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment typically take between around 90 minutes.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
While a majority of patients experience significant improvements after four sessions, the optimal approach often involves repeating the treatment every 6-8 months. This frequency ensures that the benefits continue to accrue and your skin enjoys the best possible care.
How long do I have to wait to return to normal activities following the treatment?
The treatment is non invasive and side-effect free, allowing for an immediate return to regular activities following treatment. Your skin will experience the benefits without any interruption to your daily routine. As with any laser and medical-grade peel treatment, you should wear a sun protection of 50+ and avoid direct sunlight.
