We hear the same story a lot….
I went somewhere else and they only did a few extractions.
The said they did extractions, but when i got there they said they didn’t.
The girl didn’t know what she was doing.
People are so desperate and excited when they find us they just want us to keep going and going.
There are only so many extractions we can do in a facial, but with a lot people we wish we had longer. If it be time to do more extractions, or time to have a massage after all the bad (good??) stuff. So we have been working hard in coming up with some great packages for you all.
As we are famous for our extractions we thought we would take all the hard work out and make up some great packages to give you the most results possible.
This package is for those of you who suffer badly from acne. It includes your back, chest and face for an intensive treatment. It starts with a 30 min back treatment that’s a double cleanse a BHA peel and extractions. We then move onto a 70min extraction facial and add in chest as well. Preparing your skin for extra extractions we cleanse exfoliate, deep cleanse and steam before starting your extractions. In this package you receive an extra 20mins of extractions (on top of what we already do) An LED light therapy is chosen for your skin (to kill bacteria, to heal or to reduce inflammation) We finish off with a high frequency treatment which zaps surface bacteria, speeds up the healing time and reduces your chances of reoccurring breakouts.

Add an AHA or BHA peel for an extra $10 (dependant on skin type)

I am excited to announce that we have introduced an innovative new treatment at Shine called Dermal needling, which, I know, might sound a little scary, but I promise you, it will revolutionise your skin!
So let me explain.
But first, let me tell you about our philosophy and where Shine fits into the beauty industry.
At Shine, we believe in positivity and results, and we have invested the time to research the best treatments and innovations to help you achieve optimum skin health.
But sometimes the best techniques take time in order to achieve long-term lasting results.
For example, we don’t offer laser treatment because we believe that, while it may give you fast results, it places way too much stress on your skin in the long term and the damage can be hard to repair. And we don’t offer chemical peels because they strip back the top layer of skin exposing it to external bacteria and infections, leaving it inflamed and so sensitive to sunlight that some people have to stay indoors for 5-7 days after a treatment. Doesn’t sound pleasant, does it?
At Shine, we believe there has to be a gentler, better way that can be sustained for the long-term health of your skin (i.e. why do a two day juice detox to lose 5kg, when eating a balanced diet is safer and will give you lasting results?).
Two years ago, we introduced LED light therapy to offer our clients who suffer with acne a gentle yet result-driven treatment that really works. Your skin has the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy, depending on the colour of the light used. Blue light works to kill surface bacteria; red light goes a little deeper to flush out the lymphatic system and remove blockages or waste that cause acne to build up; and infra-red light targets the inner layers to speed up the healing process. There is no downtime, no dryness or inflammation, no peeling, and you can walk straight out of salon. Yes, you do need a series of treatments to see long-term results (although you will see a difference after the first treatment) but it is painless and gentle on your skin.
So then we came to the next step. We were getting great results and clearing people’s acne. What about reducing scarring and achieving optimal results from your skincare?
This year we have introduced dermal needling. Basically, it is a pen with six tiny needles on the end that penetrate into the top layers of the skin to create micro-channels that allow your wonderful serums to get to where they are needed most instead of fighting through a tough outer barrier. It also works to loosen fibrous tissue and soften the appearance scarring and indented scars (imagine you have a rope from your scar holding the top layer down to your dermis – the lowest layers of your skin – creating a dent. The deeper the dent, the bigger the rope and the stronger the hold). Dermal needling starts to fray and break that rope so its hold isn’t so firm, and the more sessions you have the flatter the scar becomes. With dermal needling you may see about a 70% reduction in scarring after 6-9 treatments. We use a gentle numbing cream to ensure the whole experience is painless, and there is minimal downtime. Your skin may look and feel a little red the evening after the treatment (like sunburn), and you may experience some light dryness and flakiness 3-5 days afterwards so we encourage you to come back for a mini facial to check the results and help calm any ongoing inflammation.
So we are about great results, great skin, gentle treatments and minimal downtime in beautiful surrounds with some pretty cool music and, most importantly, very knowledgeable therapists who you can trust and whose main aim is to help you reach long-term complexion perfection.

It is amazing how so many wonderful people have written about us, that I forgot to add one. This is one by Julia on our LED facials to help with acne, sensitivity or ageing depending on the treatment we use.
Alesia here, I wanted to start contributing to the blog and seeing as I have a facial special going at the moment, I thought I would start with the wonderful benefits of facials. Our special which is on until 20th March 2015 is Book a 1hr massage and receive a 30min facial for free.
Here is my 1st blog for you all.
You may merely enjoy the pampering and relaxation you feel when receiving a facial treatment, but most people don’t understand the benefits that a good professional facial offer.
Most people will wait until they encounter a skin concern (breakouts, dryness, pigmentation) or have a special event before coming in for a facial. This is o.k. but problems can be avoided by regular facials.
Here are some reason why you should have a regular routine.
Your skin is always on display and often has the power to dictate how good we feel about ourselves. Investing in your skin has more value than buying a new dress or going out to a fancy restaurant.
Hope to see you soon for a great massage and facial 🙂

Your skin has the ability to absorb infrared light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration. Near Infra Red works by activating the body’s own natural rejuvenation processes to counteract the signs of aging by activating local cellular metabolism, improving moisture retention, promoting circulation and stimulating the skin’s fibroblasts which leads to a natural increase in collagen and elastin production which can improve skin tone and texture, help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce redness and inflammation and promotes brighter, smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
This treatment targets the building blocks of the skin, the result continues to improve over the following weeks and months.
Biologists have found that cells exposed to near infrared from LEDs, which is energy just outside the visible range grow 150-200 percent faster than cells not stimulated by such light. The light rays increase energy inside cells that speed up the healing process.
The use of LED therapy in the treatment of aged skin.
LED therapy is an increasingly popular treatment of sun damage. Combination use of light wavelengths reported to stimulate collagen and accelerate fibroblast-myofibroblast transformation may display a rejuvenative effect.
To clinically assess reduction in sun damage signs following a 5-week course of LED therapy and to assess subject’s perception of the treatment.
Thirteen subjects with wrinkles or fine lines received nine 20-min duration light treatments. The treatments combined wavelengths of 633 and 830 nm. Sun-damage reduction was assessed at 6, 9, and 12 weeks by clinical photography and patient satisfaction scores.
At 12-week follow-up, 91% of subjects reported improved skin tone, and 82% reported enhanced smoothness of skin in the treatment area.
Acne is one of the commonest skin conditions. Under normal circumstances, P. acnes lives happily in the pores of the skin, along with hair follicles and oil glands that produce oil to keep the skin from drying out. Acne erupts when the oil glands produce too much oil, clogging the pore. Then bacteria build up, and the immune system decides to react against them, launching an attack that leads to inflammation and production of a pimple.
Acne often improves after exposure to sunlight or artificially produced solar radiation. Blue light gets to the core of what causes acne eruptions-P. acnes. This is the bacteria responsible for causing acne inflammation. P.acnes pumps out tiny molecules called porphyrins. When those porphyrin are exposed to certain wavelengths of light, they produce free radicals that kill the bacteria. Without P. acnes around to cause inflammation, acne clears up.

Phototherapy with blue (415 nm) and red (660 nm) light in the treatment of acne.

In this study we have evaluated the use of blue light (peak at 415 nm) and a mixed blue and red light (peaks at 415 and 660 nm) in the treatment of acne vulgaris. One hundred and seven patients with mild to moderate acne were randomized into four treatment groups: blue light, mixed blue and red light, cool white light and 5% benzoyl peroxide cream. Assessments were performed every 4 weeks. After 12 weeks of active treatment a mean improvement of 76% in inflammatory lesions was achieved by the combined blue±red light phototherapy; this was significantly superior to that achieved by blue light (at weeks 4 and 8), benzoyl peroxide (at weeks 8 and 12) or white light (at each assessment).
The final mean improvement in blackheads by using blue±red light was 58%,We have found that phototherapy again better than that achieved by the other active treatments used. With mixed blue±red light, by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, is an effective means of treating acne of mild to moderate severity, with no significant short-term adverse effects.
