Plasma Shower

Plasma Shower

Beamwave Technologies

Injecting is now optional! The unique Plasma Shower which creates an ionised stream of Cold plasma 25mm or 8mm wide which are non-ablative. This ionised plasma stream has a profound effect on the acne bacteria, has a regenerative effect on the skin cell membrane inducing an increase in dermal density, decreases sebum production and can aid wound healing. The ion stream also temporarily disables the cell adhesion molecules allowing trans dermal delivery of products, absorbed through the epidermis into the dermis. Mesotherapy serums can be absorbed comparably to injecting and far superior to micro-needling as there is no break in the skin. We have studies published with the trans dermal delivery of Hyalase for complications management and Botox for Hyperhidrosis. All our users Trans dermally absorb all Meso products, Profhilo, PRPV vitamin serums and Skin boosters etc, with no downtime.

Celluma’s proven performance, coupled with its portable, space saving and affordable design have made it the choice of aesthetic professionals in more than 70 countries worldwide. 

Below is a eview from renowened Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Papageorgiou, a long time Celluma Practitioners. 

Dr. Haiavy’s review on the use of Celluma Innovation for Capsular Contracture is attached.

“Celluma is an integral component of NYDG signature treatments like the Triad and Runway Facials which employ the regenerative and lifting effects of multi-layered energy waves and technologies in single sessions. The biophotonic light waves of Celluma are implemented as the final step to accelerate recovery by providing the cells with the energy to heal from within. Quite often, I recommend the device as an ongoing maintenance treatment at home to further optimise results”.

Celltense Serum

Celltense Serum


The Celltense Serum by Endor Technologies is clinically proven to improve radio frequency treatments for reducing the appearance of cellulite, making them 18 times more effective. The innovative new patented ingredient - gold nano particles linked with hyaluronic acid - within the serum is able to enter the dermis on topical application, and activate the cell receptors to increase the natural production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin. When used in synergy with RF, the RF heats the particles of the active allowing it to work on a much quicker, more effective basis.

Clinical results show:

o    18.1% improvement to cellulite volume
    vs. 0.9% using RF alone
o    17.5% echogenic density increase in the dermis
    vs. -3.3% using RF alone
o    90% patients responded to the treatment
    vs. 55% using RF alone

Clinic benefits:

  • Better results from existing treatments
  • Effective way to treat cellulite through non-invasive treatments
  • Faster results
  • Faster treatment times
  • Cost effective
  • Works with any RF machine
  • New and innovative science

InMode’s proprietary RFAL technology offers minimally invasive contouring and remodelling for results only previously achieved through more extensive surgery, including three-dimensional contraction of the dermis. With BodyTite and FaceTite, patients see surgical-grade results without the scars or downtime.

InMode is a passionate, innovative and committed company providing the very best in technology and devices. Experiencing fast growth in the UK, customers and KOLs are supported to grow along with the company and the profits are re-invested into research and development

Training is a key focus and results in not only consistency across the board, but also networking opportunities with peer support from the community and the KOL faculty.

Bipolar radio frequency and dual temperature control enhance the safety of these devices, which are FDA approved and backed up by numerous international clinical studies. FaceTite is a much needed bridge between RF microneeding (such as our Morpheus8 device, which is designed to go beyond the dermis into the subcutaneous tissue for contraction/coagulation) and a full surgical facelift with it’s associated downtime, risks and scarring.

FaceTite recently featured in the PMFA journal in Dr Dalvi Humzah's column 'How I do it' and our UK General Manager, Neil Wolfenden, was invited by Professor James Frame to speak at the annual UKAAPs meeting this year.
