Father's Day is all for men and the excellent jobs they have done being good dads to their child or children. We know the effort it takes to make sure everything is in order and the sacrifices made to ensure a comfortable home for your family, so today, this article covers a few treatments that you can indulge in as a reward for your hard work.

We understand the need and desire for men to look and feel their best.

Laser hair removal

This is our most popular service among male clients.

Laser hair removal for men is popular because they are constantly shaving their beard or chest, not to mention the difficulty associated with shaving their back. The constant shaving of these areas can leave the area irritated and prone to razor bumps and ingrown hair. The constant shaving can also leave the area darker, which tends to be unsightly.

Typically, six treatments are needed, one each month, to say goodbye to that razor and hello to smooth skin without the 5 o'clock shadow.

Body contouring

Men have high testosterone which makes fat content predisposed to the waistline, and with age the accumulation of fat content in this area increases. No matter how much you work out, you still have those love handles or maybe you don't have time work out and you just want to get rid of them. Body contouring services are customised to remove the most stubborn belly fat.

Ultrasound cavitation, laser lipo or coolsculpting are the most effective non-invasive procedures to get rid of the extra bulge. The number of sessions needed is based on the size of the treatment area and if one is dieting or incorporating an exercise regimen.


We know how important having muscle definition is for a man's physique. With just 30 minutes of electrotherapy, the midsection, arms and thighs can benefit with results equivalent to thousand crunches, bicep curls or squats.

This is a quick and pain-free way to boost muscle memory and maintain a youthful and fit appearance. An added bonus to the treatment is its ability to relieve pain.

Photo facial

With the busy lives of the working dad, the ability to take off from work to facilitate a corrective treatment such as a chemical peel makes photo facial an ideal treatment option to correct skin conditions such as sun spots, age spots, rosacea, and uneven skin tone.

A broad spectrum of laser light pulls darkened skin to the surface to be exfoliated off and can also target unwanted vessels, causing them to collapse. A series of treatments are recommended to gain the most favourable results.


Smooth skin isn't just for women. Remove years from your appearance by getting rid of those dead skin cells. Utilising the diamond tip vacuum technology to exfoliate the topmost layer of skin cells so a smoother, younger skin tone is revealed.

Combining exfoliation with an infusion of product enhances results, treating skin conditions such as acne, ageing skin and dehydration.

Toe nail fungus treatment

Now there is a simple fix for that stubborn toenail fungus that plagues most men. Onychomycosis is a fungus that grows under the nail and is very difficult to cure because topical agents do not penetrate the nail bed.

During a painless session, a laser is used to penetrate the nail bed destroying the fungus in just a few treatments.
