What is Skin Needling?
A professional facial and body treatment procedure performed by a qualified skin care therapist to achieve immediate and visible skin rejuvenation and renewal with long lasting effects. A minimally invasive micro needle roller is used to stimulate collagen induction and serves as a delivery device to increase penetration of active Dermazone serum.
Micro needling with Dermazone is an effective, versatile and cost effective therapy to induce collagen and enhance the rejuvenation and renewal process of both facial and body in a completely safe and effective manner without any damage or negative side effects to the skin.
The micro needle roller is applied to produce microscopic channels in the skin which releases growth factors to stimulate new collagen production, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles, firming loose skin and overall improvement of skin texture. Both face and body. The channels significantly improving the penetration of the active ingredients in the Dermazone product used in conjunction with micro needling.

FAQ- Hair Removal
How does it work?
The Laser delivers energy through a small hand-piece in the form of a beam of light. The laser targets hair in the growing phase by honing in on the melanin in the hair follicle, following it down the hair shaft, where it destroys it without affecting the surrounding tissue. As long as the hair has pigment in it, the laser will destroy the hair follicle on impact – once destroyed this follicle will never grow back.
What precautions should I take before the treatment?
We recommend that sun exposure be avoided at least two weeks before your hair removal treatment. Tanned skin will blister so it is better to wait for tans to fade before having a treatment. No bleaching, plucking or waxing 4-6 weeks before and after a treatment. Rather shave for a few weeks before your treatment.
How long does each a hair removal procedure take?
Treatment times vary but generally:
Underarms - 5 min
Full legs - 20 min
Half legs - 15 min
Bikini - 10 min
Underarm, Bikini and Half legs - 30 min
Commonly referred to as ‘Fat Freezing’, this process is called Cryolipolysis. As fat cells are more susceptible to extreme cold they can be selectively and permanently destroyed.
Each selected area takes approximately one hour and as this procedure is non-invasive, patients can return to normal activities immediately, the perfect treatment for a lunch-break and definitely an option for patients who don’t want to go the liposuction route.
What will happen after the treatment?
The procedure is non-invasive. Most patients resume their routine activities on the same day of the procedure. Transient local redness, bruising and numbness of the skin are common side effects of the treatment and expected to subside within a couple of hours. Typically sensory deficits will subside within 1-8 weeks. With this non-invasive procedure there is no need for anaesthesia or pain medication.
How long will the effect last?
Patients experiencing Cool-lipolysis show persistent results at least 1 year after the procedure.The elimination of fat cells as a s result of the procedure is expected to last as long as fat cells removed by invasive procedures such as liposution.
Does not harm surrounding tissue.

Laser Lipolysis is a body sculpting procedure, which utilises a thermal process to gently heat up and destroy fat cells in the target area.
An additional advantage of the treatment is that the heat stimulates the fibroblasts of the skin (cells that contribute to the formation of connective tissue fibres), which allows you to produce new collagen, resulting in a skin firming effect. This makes the treatment extremely beneficial post-pregnancy.

What sounds like a dream, is in fact a fascinating idea that was first tried out in 1988 by an Italian professor,
Sergio Maggiory, and then successfully tested in practice in 1995 by the Brazilian dermatologist Patricia Rittes.
The method involves infecting phosphatidylcholine (PPC), a natural substance obtained from soya beans,
directly into the unwanted deposits of fat. In other words, this therapy can help you to get rid of smaller
deposits of fat that are susceptible neither to change in diet nor special exercise – and not just temporarily,
but permanently. In general, infection lipolysis therapy is ideally suited for treating clearly defined zones of
Lipolysis therapy is an innovative, nonsurgical and noninvasive method to remove the accumulation of
stubborn fatty deposits (unwanted localized areas that diet or exercise does not eliminate) in targeted regions
of the body.
While ordinary lipolysis is already a trusted and effective method of permanent fat reduction, the Lipozone
difference is the combination with a cellulite cocktail of added ingredients to rapidly metabolize and disperse
of targeted fatty deposits.

Is tanning in a salon safe?
Yes! Tanning in a salon is safe, especially compared to being out in actual sunlight for prolonged periods of time. Since tanning beds filter out the UVC light, you’ll get the healthiest forms of UV light.
How does tanning work?
Sunbeds use UV or Ultraviolet light to tan your body. Since there are three types of UV light – UVA, UVB, and UVC – sunbeds are designed to use more levels of UVA with lower levels of UVB on your skin to promote the production of melanin, the pigment that makes you look tan even if you don’t spend time under actual sunlight. The most harmful form of UV light is the UVC which tanning beds filter out so that you only get the best forms of UV light.
Why does a tan disappear?
The tan or pigmentation process occurs in the epidermis, the top skin layer. The epidermis replaces all its skin cells every 28-30 days. Cells in the inner portion of the top skin layer divide themselves, migrate to the surface, and flake off. Skin cells contain melanin, and as a result of UV exposure rises to the surface and flake off as well. Therefore, a tan can be maintained only by repeated exposure to UV light.
How often can I tan?
You should wait at least 24 hours after a session before tanning again. It is recommended that you do not go more than 4 times a week to make sure you do not get sunburned.
I’m really in a hurry… can I tan more than once on the same day?
To get an “instant” tan you should consider using our spray tan. In just seconds you can have the natural-looking colour you want. If you prefer traditional tanning you are allowed to tan once every 24 hours, but it is recommended that you wait at least 48 hours in between each session to allow your tan to develop fully in between visits. The tan produced by UVA is immediate but UVB produces more melanin (a protein pigment) in the skin and takes up to 48 hours to develop.
You can build up your tan by using the sunbed three to four times a week. Once you have a tan, you can maintain it by tanning once or twice a week.
I’m tanning, but my legs aren’t getting as dark as the rest of me?
Research showed that there is less pigment present in our legs due to the fact that we have less fat under the epidermis (the top skin layer) in our lower legs. The skin on your legs is also thicker than other parts of your body and when you shave or wax your legs, you are mechanically exfoliating the uppermost skin cells and part of your tan.
How long should I tan when I first start?
If you easily get sunburned, it is advisable to start with a smaller exposure time. You can then increase it gradually as you establish a base tan.
Why should I use lotion?
All our lotions are specifically designed for the indoor tanning industry; they contain ingredients to assist in achieving maximum tanning results. They are designed not only to maximize and accelerate great tanning results, but most importantly replace essential nutrients, minerals and lost moisture to your skin. Lotions also contain antioxidants to shield free radical damage, promote skin firming and have anti-aging properties. When you tan with a lotion your colour build up will be a lot faster and you will require less sessions to achieve a beautiful bronze colour.
Do I need to wear an SPF lotion when I tan on a sunbed?
No, because SPF tanning lotions allow you to stay in the sun longer than what is considered safe for you. It is then advisable to wear an SPF tanning lotion when outdoors so to avoid overexpose.
Why do I need to wear eye protection?
Closing your eyelids is not adequate protection; your eyelids are too thin to stop ultraviolet light. For this reason you must wear eye protection when tanning.
How does indoor tanning exposure compare to the natural sun?
Your skin produces a tan the same way it does when you tan indoors or outdoors. It is difficult to make a simple comparison of the sun with that of modern indoor tanning equipment. The sun’s strength is dependent on several factors as well. When you are outdoors in the sun you cannot control the amount of ultraviolet light you are exposed to. Indoor tanning is a very controlled environment in which you can regulate the amount of ultraviolet light you are exposed to. You can gradually increase your exposure time to achieve the tan you desire without burning.
What can I do to help my tan last longer?
MOISTURIZE! MOISTURIZE! MOISTURIZE! Using a high quality specially formulated tanning moisturizer will help replenish vitamins and nutrients, keeping your skin smooth and younger looking while helping you maintain that deep dark tan you love. Remember properly moisturized skin TANS FASTER, TANS DARKER, and STAYS TANNED LONGER!!!
Are All Dermatologists Against Indoor Tanning?
While most of the dermatology profession has an inexplicably myopic view about tanning, some enlightened dermatologists have broken ranks with their peers in recent years, urging their profession to re-think its one-sided dogma about sun exposure. Two of the most recent:
Research dermatologist Dr. Sam Shuster, professor emeritus to the Department of Dermatology at Newcastle University in northern England, challenged his peers to quantify the alleged increase in skin cancer incidence, which is not based on actual numbers but only estimates. In the book, “Panic Nation: Unpicking the Myths We’re Told About Food and Health” Shuster calls his peers to acknowledge that a tan is the body’s natural protection against sunburn – a reality that has been all but stampeded under the establishment’s rhetoric. “Unfortunately our attitude to sun and ultra-violet (UV) light is subject to much perverse and dubious technical ‘advice’, which society has passively accepted without questioning its provenance,” Shuster writes.
Boston University Professor Dr. Michael Holick – the scientist who was involved in the discovery of the active form of vitamin D in the early 1970s – wrote the book “The UV Advantage” in 2004, urging people to embrace moderate exposure to ultraviolet light as the body’s natural way to produce Vitamin D. Holick is one of the world’s leading authorities on vitamin D production. “Since some exposure to sunlight is beneficial to your health, it is reasonable that if you wish to be exposed to sunlight, that you can do so with relative safety if you make sure that you do not receive a sunburn,” Holick says.
Many rank-and-file dermatologists have more moderate views about sensible sun exposure, but have been intimidated by their peers not to discuss these views publicly. Indeed, upon publishing “The UV Advantage” in 2004, Holick was forced to resign his post at Boston University as a professor of dermatology, with the chair of that department calling his work “schlock science.” In spite of such rhetoric, in the two years since publishing his book, most of Holick’s positions have become mainstream thinking.
Why is moisturized skin important for a tan?
Healthy, moist skin will tan quicker, get darker and keep its tanned appearance longer because the melanin is produced rapidly and the skin also will not exfoliate as quickly when it is properly moisturized.
I don’t tan outdoors. Will I be able to tan in a bed?
If you can’t get colour from the sun, you stand a better chance of getting colour on a sunbed on condition you start with half sessions twice a week and aim at a very gradual colour build up. However, UV-Free tanning system can give you a natural looking tan without any UV exposure at all. Book a spray tan today if in doubt.
How do I know the beds are clean?
We use s specialised cleaning solutions after every customer’s tanning session. We also provide fresh towels for each tanning session.
Why Should We Be Concerned About Vitamin D Deficiency?
New research in America has shown that vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic in adults today, suggesting that up to 90% of people are vitamin D deficient. This epidemic is most likely caused by over-usage of sunscreen in climates and during seasons when sunburn is not a possibility. This is especially significant because:
A 2006 systematic review of 63 studies on vitamin D status in relation to cancer risk has shown that vitamin D sufficiency can reduce one’s risk of colon, breast and ovarian cancers by up to 50%. The landmark paper, published in the February 2006 issue of The American Journal of Public Health, is the most comprehensive paper on vitamin D written to date.
Additionally, vitamin D deficiency is a leading cause of osteoporosis, a disease affecting 25 million Americans which leads to 1 million hip and bone fractures every year. In elderly individuals, such fractures are often deadly. Encouraging everyone to wear sunscreen all year long in any climate is undoubtedly contributing to this problem, as vitamin D is necessary for the body to properly process calcium.
For years, environmental correlations have established that people in sunny climates have lower risks of many forms of cancer. In recent years, the mechanism by which Vitamin D slows or retards the growth of tumor cells has been researched and identified. It was once thought that only the kidneys could produce active vitamin D, but we now know that many cells in the body perform this function, including cells in the breast, prostate, colon, brain and skin. Research has shown that the active form of vitamin D, when present in cells throughout the body, inhibits the growth and spread of abnormal cells, including cancer cells.
What Does Indoor Tanning Have To Do With Vitamin D?
Exposure to UVB rays from sunshine is the body’s natural way to produce vitamin D, accounting for 90% of the body’s vitamin D production. Dietary “supplements” are just that, supplemental ways to produce vitamin D.
Research has shown that people who utilize indoor tanning equipment that emit UVB rays, which most tanning equipment does, also produce vitamin D. Studies have also shown that indoor tanning clients have higher vitamin D blood levels than non-indoor tanners.
While the North American indoor tanning industry promotes itself as a cosmetic service, one undeniable, yet favourable, side-effect of that cosmetic service is vitamin D production. Even though it is not necessary to develop a tan to produce vitamin D, this should be considered: because research suggests that the risks associated with sun exposure are related to intermittent sunburns, it is credible to believe that the benefits of regular, moderate, non-burning exposure outweigh the risks associated with overexposure.

WHAT IS A SPRAY TAN?
A self tanning lotion is applied to the skin by means of an airbrush machine. The specially designed airbrush atomizes the self tanning lotion into a cooling vapor which is finely misted onto the skin ensuring an even streak-free application.
HOW DO SELF TANNING LOTIONS WORK?
An active ingredient in the self tanning lotion called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids found in the top layer of the skin to produce a bronzed tan—very much like the sun does, but without the UVA and UVB damage.
HOW LONG WILL THIS TAN LAST?
The tan lasts between 4 to 10 days, depending on each person’s natural skin exfoliation. In dryer climates, like Johannesburg, people tend to shed skin more frequently so regular moisturizing is essential to prolong the tan.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM THE USE OF SELF TANNING LOTIONS?
There are no known harmful side effects from the use of Tan Incorporated tanning products. A small percentage of people are allergic to DHA and may break out in red spots. If you are one of these people who have previously reacted badly to self tanning lotions, it is important that you advise us when making your appointment, prior to your tanning session. As an extra precaution, we prefer not to spray self tanning lotions on pregnant women. The results may vary due to hormone levels.
Our products may not be effective on people who have been exposed to excessive sun damage, some hormone replacement therapies, steroids or drug use.
THE DO’S AND DON’TS
Do not swim in chlorinated water as it will bleach your tan. Swimming in the rough seas is not recommended as the sea and sea sand is abrasive Spray tan is highly recommended for functions. We spray many clients for evening functions, matric farewells, photo shoots, body-building competitions, brides etc. Spray tan does not offer protection against the harmful rays of the sun, so please use a sunscreen outdoors You can tan (outdoors or on a sunbed) over a spraytan application. Your skin will continue to darken as the self tanning chemical reaction works on your skin.

80% of the success of the spray tan depends on your preparation at home before the application at our Studio. Pay careful attention to the following steps as there is a great part of the process over which we do not have control. Your efforts will assist you in experiencing the most beautiful even tan.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR TANNING APPOINTMENT
You must exfoliate your entire body in the morning, or the night before your scheduled appointment . Exfoliation helps promote an even tan coverage and lengthens the duration of your tan through the removal of dead skin cells that would otherwise flake off. When you exfoliate, pay particular attention to the lower half of your legs, knees, ankles, top of feet, toes, elbows and knuckles. You can use an exfoliating cream, face cloth, scrubbing mitten or loofah and a pumice stone on feet if necessary.
It is best to shave or wax at least 8 hours before your appointment. Do not apply deodorant, make-up or moisturizer before your tan as these will act as a barrier and prevent the self tanning lotion from being properly absorbed into your skin.
WHAT TO WEAR
Wear loose fitting clothing and slops to your appointment. A dark coloured sundress is ideal - as after application some of the self tanning lotion may rub off on your clothes. While it easily washes out of most fabrics, it tends to stain light coloured nylon materials. During the application, you can wear a dark coloured costume or underwear, or you may choose to wear the disposable underwear supplied by us.
HOW MUCH TIME TO ALLOW FOR THE ACTUAL PROCESS
The actual tanning application only takes 5 minutes, but you will need an extra 5 to 10 minutes to allow for drying.
FOLLOWING THE TANNING APPLICATION
For at least 12 hours after your tan, you should:
NOT wash your hands
NOT wear jewellery
NOT apply moisturizer
NOT wear tight clothing
NOT swim or immerse yourself in water
NOT exercise or wear closed shoes (perspiration immediately after the tan can interfere with the DHA’s chemical reaction with the skin).
POST TAN SHOWER
Wait at least 10 - 12 hours after your tan before taking your first bath or shower.
Do not be alarmed to see colour washing off the first time you bath or shower as this is merely the surface bronzing colour. Your skin will continue to darken as the self tanning chemical reaction develops on the top layer of the skin.
MAINTAINING YOUR TAN
After your post tan shower, apply a moisturizer or oil in the morning and evening. A well hydrated skin is essential to maintaining your tan and extending its duration. Lotions containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids increase skin exfoliation, therefore the their use will accelerate the fading of your tan.
After showering or bathing, do not rigorously rub the towel against your skin ( this exfoliates) rather gently pat the towel against your skin.

"My experience at Dolce Vita has been amazing. Never thought how effective a laser treatment would be, until I tried it.Great results in good time. Totally worth the effort."
"I have been going to Dolce Vita Beauty Centre for laser hair removal treatments for about a year now, and I can honestly say that it has changed my life. When I arrived there for the first time, I was covered in scars caused by waxing and shaving. Now my skin is smooth, clear and hair free, and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. The staff are wonderful, professional and friendly, the laser treatment is very effective, and their massage therapists work wonders. They better get used to me at Dolce Vita because I wouldn't go anywhere else!"
"Friendly staff and good value for money. I particularly like the full body massage. Very friendly hairdresser and Kym, the owner, is always ready to help. Good service overall."
Laser hair removal has changed my life, before starting, I had to shave every second day. Wonderful and efficient service at Dolce Vita and really affordable, easy to spoil yourself!
