People often don’t realise that having facial treatments is a whole lot more than just one hour of indulgent pleasure.  Facial treatments have both long and short-term benefits for the health and wellness of your skin.  We often neglect to take care of our skin and forget how important the appearance of our skin is.  It can affect how other people see us as well as how good we feel about ourselves.  Every now and then, just send a little time focussing on your skin, even if it’s just at seasonal changes when our skin is the most vulnerable.


Read on for more information and we look forward to your visit.

Dr R.Targett

"Trust Your Face to a Doctor Trained in Dermatology and Cosmetic Medicine"

Dr Targett is qualified in Primary Care Dermatology with a special interest in Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Medicine.

She is a natural results advocate, facial shaping artist, ambassador of elegance, leader in her field, and the mother of two children.

At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we have a range of facials to suit your individual skin needs.  Our facials include microdermabrasion and LED light therapy.

The LED light penetrates the skin, stimulating cellular mechanisms and activity.  It is able to enhance skin healing, plump up the skin thus eliminating fine lines as well as eliminate bacteria which cause acne.

Hiding beneath the top layers of dead skin, you will find a beautiful complexion which is smoother, brighter and more refined, just waiting to show itself. Chemical peels are the answer when it comes to revealing this inner skin beauty.

It is a simple but very effective means to achieve youthful, healthy skin, by applying deep exfoliation and hydration to treat your aesthetic skin condition.

Benefits of Facial Treatments

Anti Ageing

We only have one face and each and every day we are getting older.  We need to start to take care of what we have.  By having regular facial treatments, cell turnover is increased, collagen production is boosted and our skin is nourished and moisturised.  This all equates to a very good anti-ageing remedy.

Facial Treatments Help Teenagers with Acne

Teenagers often struggle with acne, sometimes due to lazy or non-existent skincare.  Having regular facial treatments can help to manage the overproduction of oils, blocked glands and whiteheads.  Not only this, it will help your teen to learn to take good care of their skin. Professional advice is sometimes better received than parents advice.

Professional Strength Exfoliation

Free radical damage from the environment is impossible to avoid.  Our skin is bombarded with UV rays, toxins, and dirt on a daily basis.  Exfoliation like chemical peels and microdermabrasion are able to remove dead skin cells and promote new healthy cell turnover.  Over time these may help to diminish scarring, diminish facial pigmentation as well as acne.

Deep Cleansing Facials

Even if you have dry skin a cleanser will help clean the pores to a deeper level.  Most of us need to cleanse our skin more effectively and for longer periods for our pores to become properly clean. Deep cleansing facial treatments can remove dirt and oil build within our pores.  Proper cleansing will help us to feel rejuvenated and the pores will appear more refined.  It is analogous to seeing the dentist. Only a dentist can clean our teeth properly!

Alleviate Stress

We all live busy and hectic lifestyles where we don’t find time for ourselves.  Having a facial treatment is one of the most relaxing experiences you can have.  It will help restore calm to your mind as well as have great benefits for your skin.

Skin Care Advice For At Home

Aestheticians, like Dr Targett, know what works and what does not work.  They are able to accurately assess your skin and advise what skincare products will best suit your skin.  She will get to know your skin better over time and monitor how well the products are working for you.

LED Light Therapy – High Tech Equipment

Many facial treatments provide high tech treatments such as LED light therapy, that you can only get in a spa. LED light therapy has many benefits including killing bacteria and controlling acne, stimulates collagen production, reduces redness and strengthens the skin.  Different colour light is used for treating different skin ailments.  The longer the wavelength of light, the deeper it can penetrate your skin and be a powerful anti-ageing therapy.

Improve Lymphatic Drainage

Most facial treatments include some facial massage. This is great for relaxation as well as enhancing lymphatic drainage. It will help get rid of the toxins and fluid buildup in your face.  It also helps to promote circulation leaving your face healthy, glowing and youthful.
