Needles and Pins!
A while back you could head to your high street beautician for a wax or aromatherapy massage. There were blooming fresh flowers on the reception desk and lightly scented candles burning in the hall. Bliss…
To stay relevant with advances in the beauty industry – many of these traditional beauticians now offer facial aesthetics. Their stores have changed almost overnight from beauty parlours to faux medical clinics touting all sorts of laser and injectable serums of youth.
The staff radiate assurance of their safety by carrying clipboards and dressing in crisply ironed Doctors coats. As a professional medical practitioner – this is worrying.
At Estetica – our medical team earned their white coats through intense study and professionally recognised degrees.
Yes - we have skilled team members who offer waxing and massage – but we are a medical practice first and the line for safety and professionalism in our practice is very clear.
Medical practitioners administer medicines and needles.
I cannot recall the number of times we have had patients come to us for correctional treatment following a laser burn, skin scarring a drooping eyelid after a high street shot of Botox gone wrong. We are wholly committed to ethics and safety.
Sadly, facial aesthetics is not a heavily enough regulated industry. Training can be sparse and experience limited. It’s you – the client, who has the responsibility to check credentials. When you book in for a treatment, you cannot simply assume all practitioners are equal.
So please, do your research. You can search for us online – search and find our consistently top shelf reviews – “Visia Surrey”, “Restylane Surrey”, “Lip Fillers Surrey”. Our information and credential are readily available.
At Estetica we know our clinicians from Medical Practitioners – and it’s got very little to do with what colour coat we are wearing.

We are pleased to announce that we are now offering a new skin rejuvenating treatment – Tixel. Tixel is a ground breaking new treatment that can be used to effectively treat a number of different issues and skin types.
The main point of Tixel treatment is to strengthen the fragile skin around the eyes. This skin is thin in the first place, and, after menopause, collagen production tails off, meaning the skin’s ability to repair and regenerate itself is very limited.
Tixel can be used to treat:
Dark circles around eyes
Wrinkles and fine lines
The most popular of the three treatment options, Ablative treatments are more intensive and used to treat acne scarring and wrinkles. This treatment gives results comparable to CO2 laser skin resurfacing, but the treatment itself has been designed to be less painful and to have a shorter recovery period.
This is a less intensive treatment option with little to no downtime for people who are unable to fit more intensive treatments into their schedule. It can be used in to treat the same issues as Ablative treatment, but an increased number of treatments would be needed.
Tixel uses controlled heat energy to encourage the renewal of skin. The specially designed hand piece is made from a grid of pyramids, which transfer heat when they come into contact with the skin, creating micron sized pores in the upper layers of the skin. The healing process after treatment encourages the skin to rejuvenate and refresh as well as encouraging collagen.
What is Tixel treatment used for?
Tixel has multiple rejuvinative applications including reducing wrinkles and lines, treating sunspots and pigmentation and reducing the appearance of scars such as acne scarring.
How many treatments make up a course?
The number of treatments depends on the individual, skin type and issue. Before any treatment you would have a consultation with a medical practitioner how will be able to design an individual treatment plan for you. Most commonly the average number of treatments is 3-4.
How much does Tixel treatment cost?
Is the treatment painful?
Tixel is designed to be more comfortable than other rejuvenating laser treatments. For more intensive treatments an anaesthetic cream can be applied to the skin prior to treatment to increase comfort further.
How much downtime is involved?
Tixel is designed for reduced downtime. Commonly after treatment most people experience swelling, redness and warmth for several hours. More intensive treatments can leave crusting after treatment, which usually subsides after 3 days and can be reduced with moisturiser.
How long does it take to see results?
Results vary from person to person, depending on the individual treatment plan. On average our clients report seeing visible results after 1-2 months from the first treatment date.
