ADVANCED FACIAL TREATMENTS
Through the combined use of these four technologies, the platform is effectively able to treat all layers of the skin and offer deep skin cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, oxygen enrichment and skin cell nutrition.
HOW IT WORKS
With advanced facial treatments, we follow these steps:
1. Free consultation
2. Skin analysis and Introductory Treatment
3. Advanced Facial Treatments (ideally a course of treatments for optimum results)
In your free consultation, we will explain how these advanced facials work, and answer any questions you have. You can send us your questions by email, DM, or Whatsapp, give us a call, or you’re welcome to pop into the salon.
If you don’t have any questions, you can also book your Skin Analysis and Introductory Treatment directly.
SKIN ANALYSIS & INTRODUCTORY TREATMENT
This is a service you book, which costs £30 and takes 30 minutes. Here, your aesthetician does a complete analysis of your skin, and discusses with you what results you are looking for. You also get a short treatment with the machine, based on your skin type, which also tests your skin’s sensitivity to the ingredients, so we know exactly what strength of treatment to give you. At the end of this service, the aesthetician will recommend an exact treatment or course of treatments tailored for you, depending on what you wish to achieve.
ADVANCED FACIAL TREATMENTS
For best results, we recommend you take a course of several advanced facial treatments. But depending on what you want to achieve, you can of course do a single treatment with good results. Each treatment consists of a combination of the necessary electrical facial treatments, as well as elements of manual facials. The treatments are tailored to your skin and to the results you are looking for. Each treatment will use one or more of the electrical facial treatments: HydroMedi, OxynRich, Quadpolar RF and Ultra+Serum.
THE TECHNOLOGIES WE USE IN OUR ADVANCED FACIALS
Hydromedi is our name for a hydra facial. Hydra facial is sometimes called hydro-dermabrasion, and it is a method of exfoliating the skin that uses chemical solutions and suction. The chemical solutions break the bonds of the top layer of skin and allow it to be sucked away. The solutions are also hydrating and antibacterial.
The combination of suction, turbulence and the specially-formulated solutions reach down into the skin to unblock pores, remove blackheads, bacteria, spots and pustules, and generally remove pollutants like loose skin flakes. This is followed by a further stage to hydrate and nourish the skin leaving it refreshed.
This treatment oxygenates the skin. It uses a chemical phenomenon known as the “Bohr effect” to encourage the body to oxygenate the skin. When more oxygen is delivered to the skin cells, the skin is able to renew itself more easily. But you can’t just “spray” oxygen onto the skin. The body doesn’t work that way. The oxygen has to come from inside, through the blood.
OxynRich creates CO2 pressure on the skin cells of the face, tricking the body into releasing more oxygen into the affected skin cells. The result is that the face receives a boost of oxygen from the blood, which is very good for the skin.
Radio frequency treatment has been safely used on facials and other skin treatments for a long time.
This is a radio frequency treatment which gently heats the skin to between 37 and 41 degrees C. At this temperature, the collagen structure of the skin begins to change. It reduces wrinkles and significantly improves the skins texture. The results of the treatment are immediate.The treatment causes some plumping and tightening of the skin and can give the skin a vibrant, plumped look that lasts for about 10-14 days.
The Ultra+Serum treatment is a way of “injecting” serum into the skin, deep enough that it has a potent effect. However, instead of using needles, the serum is “injected” into the skin using ultrasound.
High-frequency ultrasound internally stimulates the skin to generate micro-heat which accelerates the metabolism of the skin cells and promotes blood circulation.
