RegimA Facial and Body Products:
RégimA is the most advanced, medically accepted skin care programme created to attack the ageing free radicals and toxins associated with modern living. These elements are responsible for most of the skin’s visible signs of ageing, including loss of skin tone and wrinkles.
RégimA is a unique skin rejuvenation and treatment range manufactured for the use of doctors and skin care professionals. Extensive use of the very finest potent natural ingredients from Europe, South Africa and other tropical regions and indigenous wound healing, skin repairing plants, ensures RégimA’s status as a skin treatment leader in the world market. We are not just talking ‘normal’ cosmetics which may feel nice, smell nice and keep the skin hydrated, but are just moisturizing outer dead skin. To really rejuvenate one has to remove that outer layer which shows all signs of ageing, revealing a much fresher, more youthful skin. RégimA is a cosmeceutical focusing not only on AESTHETICS but SKIN HEALTH.
Safely, gently and naturally RégimA helps restore the skin’s youthful appearance, improving colour, tone and texture, smoothing away fine lines and uneven skin colour, bringing back that glow of a good, healthy skin, irrespective of age. RegimA also treats pigmentation, acne, scarring and sun damage. An ideal range to use pre/post plastic surgery too, and as your home care products throughout the year.
At Soma Studio, the NEW Zone 30% and 50% Peels are extremely effective and require less time on the skin during the treatment. The downtime is also minimal. They are all time-dependant peels, and do not contain chemicals. It is required that you are on the RegimA homecare range to compliment regular peel treatments. The RegimA facials are also luxurious and for all skin types. RegimA treatments and products are safe during pregnancy.

Cosmelan/Dermamelan In-Salon Mask Application: The Gold Standard treatment for Melasma world-wide.
What is melasma and do I suffer from it? Hyper-pigmentation is a very common skin disorder. It presents itself in brown patches, commonly found on the hands and face. In some cases it is referred to as: Melasma.
What causes hyper-pigmentation? Skin tone is defined by the presence of melanin. Darker skins have higher amounts of melanin, and lighter skins, have lower amounts of melanin. Often, Melasma occurs when there is an increased melanin production. This creates a darker skin tone in some areas, leaving the skin blotchy and uneven. Causes of skin pigmentation can range from genetic predisposition – aggravated by high exposure to strong sunlight, to hormonal changes – such a pregnancy, menopause or taking oral contraceptives.
How does cosmelan/dermamelan help? Cosmelan acts by blocking the melanin-producing enzyme (Tyrosinase), therefore reducing the production of melasma.
Cosmelan/Dermamelan is a professional treatment, and therefore must be administed by a qualified and experienced practitioner. The treatment consists of two phases:
- Phase 1 takes place in the clinic. It involves a detailed skin analysis and diagnosis. The Cosmelan mask is applied to the skin after which the patient is sent home with instructions to remove the mask after 8 – 12 hours.
- Phase 2 involves homecare over the next 3 months. In some cases longer this phase carries on for much longer.
Clients with less melasma can also try just using the Cosmelan maintenance cream at home. You will need to purchase the Hydra-Vital Factor K moisturiser to use during this time. The Complete sunblock spf50 MUST also be purchases and used.

Micropen collagen induction therapy
During the medical needling treatment, the needles pierce the skin and create microconduits (holes) without removing layers of the epidermis. Microneedling leads to the release of growth factors which stimulate the formation of new collagen (natural collagen) and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed – this neovascularisation and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction in scars. The procedure is therefore aptly called ‘percutaneous collagen induction therapy’ and has also been used in the treatment of photoaging and general skin rejuvenation. The ‘wound healing effect’ applies here as well.
A topical anaesthetic cream is applied half an hour before treatment and the actual treatment time depends on the area being treated. An active ampoule containing concentrated anti-ageing ingredients or any ingredients to treat the concern, is applied during this treatment as you get deep product absorption. The skin will be red straight after the treatment and this redness may last up to 3 days, but recovers quickly. You can even apply makeup 2 hours after. Fast Skin Repair is the ideal product to use post needling. (and sun protection)
A course of 6 treatments is recommended at 4-6 week intervals. You could alternate peels with needling, but you can also combine peels and needling in one treatment session.
The Mesoestetic brand consists of a complete Facial line. (enquire for more information based on your skin type and concerns)
