YouthTopia Special: 24k Facial Mask
Reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eyes with a 24k gold facial mask.
The 24k facial mask uses a combination of 24 karat gold dust, minerals and seaweed extract to give you the ultimate facial treatment.
The 24 karat gold dust provides a tightening effect and helps the intense nutrition and remineralising effects of the minerals, while the seaweed extract offers a moisturising effect.
Unlike other facial masks, the 24k facial mask can be applied of the eyes and lips to give a full face revitalisation, improving vitality and tone.
It also reduces the temperature of the skin by up to 6ºC to provide a draining effect which aids in reducing puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a substance extracted from your own blood and used to treat many different problems. At YouthTopia, we use it for its cosmetic benefits.
Sometimes referred to as the “Vampire Facial”, the cosmetic PRP treatment we offer involves taking a sample of your blood, spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the Platelet Rich Plasma, then applying it to your skin.
We offer two methods of application depending on the beauty goals you wish to achieve. The first is to apply the PRP topically while carrying out a microneedling treatment. This will ensure full and even coverage, with PRP being pushed into the skin a high number of times over a large area.
The second method is to inject the PRP using the “Nappage” (or tapping) technique. This involves using a special needle to manually inject the PRP in short, low impact injections in targeted areas of the face.
Both methods have their advantages and can be combined during one treatment for the ultimate Platelet Rich Plasma treatment.

Microcurrent facials tighten up and lift the facial muscles for chiseled features and a more “awakened” look.
Using a low-grade electrical current to train your muscles, you will have tighter facial muscles which prevents muscle sagging and gives you a more uplifted look.
What began as a treatment for Bell’s palsy and muscle paralysis in the 1980’s to treat facial sagging and atrophied facial muscles, microcurrent facials have developed into a cosmetic treatment that has also been shown to increase the production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), a key ingredient in the creation of collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are the proteins that make up youthful skin and give it its bounce. Over the years, collagen and elastin production decreases and our skin loses firmness.
Treatments such as the microcurrent facial stimulate collagen and elastin production to give your skin youthful plumpness, on top of the primary benefit of tightening facial muscles and reduce sagging.
High Frequency Facial Treatment
High frequency facial treatments have become one of the most sought-after facial treatments available today.
It’s not hard to see why, with the huge range of applications including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the size of enlarged pores, treating and preventing stubborn acne, decongesting puffy eyes, fading dark eye circles and much more.
High frequency treatments use safe and gentle oscillating frequencies between 100,000 and 2500,000 hertz to produce a thermal effect on the skin.
High frequency does not cause muscular contractions – instead, it works on the principle of skin toning.
The treatment uses the oxygenating power of high frequency electrical current to enhance blood circulation, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, exfoliate dead skin cells, encourage lymphatic drainage, increase collagen and elastin production, and improve skin care product absorption.
The Lymph system is a vital part of your body’s immune system. Lymph itself is a clear-yellow liquid that transports nutrients and oxygen to cells and remove toxins from around the body.
Your body actually has around twice as many lymph nodes as it does blood vessels, however, unlike blood, which has the heart to pump it around the body, lymph has no pump.
It instead relies on pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles push the lymphatic fluid around. A lack of lymph movement prevents toxins from being flushed out by the lymph nodes.
By using therapeutic massage, we help promote the draining and flow of lymph around your face leading to a number of benefits including; improvement in the appearance scar tissue and stretchmarks, healthy cleaner pores, a reduction in swelling, puffiness and blotchiness, and even cellulite.
Microneedling treatments use a microneedling device to pierce lots of tiny holes to gently break the surface of your skin.
The holes made in the upper layer of your skin cause slight trauma to the skin. This kick-starts the body’s natural response, the production of collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are essential proteins that help give your skin it’s bounce and firmness. As time passes, our body produces less collagen and elastin which leads to aging and sagging of the skin.
Treatments such as microneedling can rejuvenate your skin and give back its youthful appearance.
Microneedling alone is a great treatment, but when combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and other topical treatments, the absorption rate is increased and the treatments are more effective.
Dermaroller treatments use a small roller with hundreds of small needles to gently break the surface of the skin.
The treatment pierces lots of holes in the upper layer of skin for the same reason as microneedling treatments; to promote collagen and elastin production and improve absorption of topical products.
Both treatments can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help to heal scarring such as stretchmarks and acne scarring, and improve the skin’s texture.
The treatments are minimally-invasive, have a short recovery period and offer almost immediate results that continue to improve over the next few weeks as your body recovers from the skin trauma.
Microdermabrasion is a manual exfoliation technique that removes the top layer of dead skin in order to promote collagen and elastin production.
At YouthTopia we offer both the most popular types of microdermabrasion; stream and diamond-tipped microdermabrasion.
With stream microdermabrasion, a stream of crystals are directed towards the skin before being vacuumed away, whereas with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion, a diamond-tipped wand is pulled across taught skin to remove the layer of dead skin.
This not only leaves you with a fresh complexion, but also encourages the body to begin collagen and elastin production in response to the slight trauma caused to the skin.
Because of this, your skin will continue to improve for days and weeks after your initial treatment.
Dermaplaning is the specialised technique of using a surgical scalpel to gently remove the top layer of dead skin and peach-fuzz from the face.
Sometimes referred to as “face shaving”, dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that removes the layers of dead skin from your face, leaving you with baby-soft, smooth skin.
Aside from leaving you with a fresh feel and appearance, thanks to having your dead skin removed, like many of our other treatments, dermaplaning is a collagen induction treatment.
This means that because of the controlled trauma inflicted on the skin during the treatment, the body will begin producing collagen and elastin in order to repair itself.
This leads to an on-going improvement in the skin’s firmness, bounce and youthfulness for days and weeks after the initial treatment.
At YouthTopia, we offer a range of chemical peels that target the problems you face, while taking into account you natural skin type.
Before we begin any chemical peel treatment, we’ll begin with a consultation and skin analysis to find out what your beauty goals are, what we believe we can help with and your current skin type and condition.
Whether you have oily, dry, combination or normal skin, we have a chemical peel to help you deal with a huge number of skin complaints including acne, rosecia, blocked pores, hyper-pigmentation and much more…
When you visit us for a chemical peel treatment, we’ll pamper you from start to finish.
To begin with, we’ll remove all makeup and toxins from the surface of your skin with a deep cleanse, followed by a full exfoliation.
Once your skin is clean and clear, we’ll apply the chemical peel face mask. Depending on which chemical peel you go for, this will be left on for around 20 to 40 minutes.
Once we remove the mask, we’ll finish with a moisturising face rub.
