Below you can find answers to the most asked questions
What should I know about the TA Consultation?
Here, at TA MediSpa, we ensure our clients know the condition of their skin with the use of high-end technology. While our professionals are capable of diagnosing your skin, additional assistance, whether from technology or the client themselves, is always encouraged. As a result, our client reports are as accurate as possible, and the treatments or homecare offered are both effective and beneficial to our clients.
How long will my consultation take?
The time varies from 30min-90min (including a patch test).
Why is it essential to have a daily skincare regime?
It makes all the difference if you want results. Home care products (specific ingredients) help to reduce breakouts, protect from environmental factors, and allow for long term results.
Do I still have to wear sunscreen when it’s cloudy or rainy?
Do you have different facials for different skin types?
Yes. Taya Amber asks a variety of questions related to your skin condition, general health and your concerns before any treatments are prescribed or performed. The information you provide will be part of an open discussion, and only after that, TA will perform the skin assessment to determine your skin type and prescribe a one-off treatment or a course of procedures.
How many treatments do I need before I see any improvement?
It is very personal. The results may vary. It depends on the type of treatment, home care routine (product usage) and previous cosmetological procedures (e.g. botox, filler) as well as any medication you’re taking/had been taking.
How often should I have a treatment/ facial?
For those who are into facial regimes, we recommend booking a suitable facial every 4/6 weeks for optimal results. Every treatment has its own attendance plan, which you discuss with Taya Amber during your consultation.
Can I use make-up after a facial?
We do not recommend using any make-up directly after facials and/or treatments. The skin should have a little rest before being exposed to beauty products. But if you are planning on going out after the salon visit and wish to wear make-up, ensure you let the therapist know beforehand for specific treatments with no down-time or skin sensitivity.
Will my face look red after a facial?
You should expect redness (erythema), but your face would not stay red for hours after the facial.
How to protect your skin in hot weather?
Can IPL have long-term health effects?
IPL is safe and has no long-term health effects. IPL has approximately 30+ years of extensive medical research, conducted studies and clinical experience.
Does IPL work?
Yes, however, the course of treatments required can vary from each person.
Is IPL painful?
The answer is NO, but it is a bit uncomfortable. The sensation felt during IPL is that of heat and has been likened to a rubber band snapping on the skin's surface. The pain level may vary from person to person.
Why can tanned skin not be treated by IPL?
Tanned skin has a higher risk of adverse side effects. It is better to wait until your tan settles before booking a visit with us.
How long do IPL results last?
You will see some improvement about a week out of each treatment. The maximum results will be visible 3-5 months out if you do a series of treatments about 4 weeks apart each.
Can IPL make pigmentation worse?
During the 7 days after IPL treatment, you may see the dark spots get even darker and then shed off the skin. But it is not a one-time treatment. The best results come from a course of 5/6 treatments spaced three to four weeks apart.
Is massage good for your face?
Facial massage promotes healthy skin and relaxes your facial muscles. It has a rejuvenating effect, helping you look and feel better. Taya Amber presents plenty of different massage techniques to try.
Does facial massage tighten skin and reduces wrinkles?
Facial massage slows down the ageing process. It stimulates the circulation of the blood towards the skin and cell growth. Correctly chosen techniques help prevent fine lines and the formation of new wrinkles.
