THE DERMABOOST GLOW FACIAL,
The DermaBoost Glow Facial - £65
This is an amazing facial using only NeoStrata® products which are top of the line with scientifically proven results.
This facial offers all the benefits of a Dermaplaning Facial, but includes higher end products specifically tailored to your skin that will yield results.
I don't like to use generic products that most therapists use in their facials, as no one person has the same skin issues or type, so one product does not suit all or benefit all.
The double glycolic steam cleanse with the NeoStrata® cleanser chosen for your specific skin type will cleanse deep into the very upper layers of skin sloughing away unwanted dead surface skin cells. The steamer will help open the pores more efficiently.
Followed by dermaplaning which removes peach fuzz, and the last 21 days of dead skin.
The Exuviance® Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish is amazing as the glycolic and papaya enzymes loosen the desmosomes which are the binding between the dead cells of the upper epidermis - allowing them to be removed easier (when it is washed off after the treatment). It polishes the skin to a gorgeous silky softness and glow - especially more so in combination with the dermaplaning where it will also remove any remaining debris on the skin.
The LED mask will be tailored to your skin type and issues. The one thing that keeps everything in our bodies going is adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is an organic chemical that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells in our bodies - the energy currency of life. When we absorb certain wavelengths of light, our bodies use that energy to produce more ATP. These specific wavelengths have been proven across hundreds of clinical studies to provide a wide range of benefits to the body. Red light for example has clinically been proven to improve skin clarity, tone and texture, Increase collagen production and fade scars and stretch marks. Blue light will target acne, and the green light is for anti-aging purposes and any wound-like acne.
A cooling sheet mask will be applied with your choice of iridescent, 24K gold or hologram jam packed with essential nutrients that will penetrate deeper into the skins epidermis due to the effects of the dermaplaning.
Finishing with a jade roller massage over the mask to help push and allow the product to really sink into the skin. The jade roller massage not only soothes and cools the skin, but increases circulation, improves elasticity, stimulates lymphatic drainage and reduces inflammation.
THIS FACIAL SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES (except sensitive) AND ALL AGES AS I WILL TAILOR THE PRODUCTS AND TECHNIQUES USED TO YOUR EXACT SKIN TYPE.
THE 'DERMABOOST GLOW FACIAL' INCLUDES:
Double cleanse using NeoStrata® exfoliating cleansers.
Professional enzyme polish peel with Exuviance® Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish.
Sheet mask of choice (iridescent, 24K gold or hologram).
Finishing with a cooling and soothing jade roller massage.
Not suitable for anyone with hyper sensitive skin or very active acne and visible comedones.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 'DERMABOOST GLOW FACIAL' AND A REGULAR CHEAPER DERMAPLANE FACIAL?
The difference is, is that this facial is using the best and most clinically proven products available (NeoStrata & Exuviance) that are supported by scientific evidence. Not only that, but after fully assessing your skin, I will be only using products suited to your skin type.
Most therapists offer dermaplaning at cheaper prices around £30-£40, but they are not using good products that do anything to your skin and because they are cheaper and generic, they will not yield results or target certain issues and this is reflected in their cheaper price.
You may come away feeling like you have had a good facial, but in reality, you have not had a good and thorough skin analysis, followed by a good cleanse that will remove dirt, oil, old makeup/products and dead skin. No products will have been applied that properly target your skin issues and goals and the effects will be temporary at best.
I'm a results driven, higher-end clinic, so skin health and solving issues is my goal here; hence why I have a huge variety of products that I switch out depending on the clients skin type.
The order in which I choose to do certain things and why I do them has all been carefully thought out to give you the best possible results not only instantly, but on a more long term scale.
WHO IS THE 'DERMABOOST GLOW FACIAL' FOR?
Everyone of all ages and all skin types (except those with sensitive skin - see the 'Hyper-Sensitive Facial' and those clients with bad & active acne).
The reason for this is that each of my facials have been specifically concocted to target multiple conditions at once - such as deep skin exfoliation, wrinkles and fine lines, collagen induction, product infusion at a high level, plus I tailor all the products I use for each specific client, so you can choose any of my facials knowing you will have a fully customised service as well as product advice should you wish to maintain a better and heightened skin routine at home.
WILL THE DERMAPLANING MAKE MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER AND DARKER?
NO! Absolutely not - this is a complete myth.
The hair on our bodies is totally different to that on our face. The hair on our face which is called vellus hair aka, 'peach fuzz', grows back the same size and shape after being dermaplaned.
WILL DERMAPLANING HURT?
No. Dermaplaning is a 100% pain free procedure.
If anything, you might feel a little 'tickle' on your face.
HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE THE 'DERMABOOST GLOW FACIAL' DONE?
This facial can be repeated as frequently as every 4 weeks. Because of the dermaplaning, it is not recommended to have this any sooner.
CAN YOU CREATE ME A BESPOKE SKINCARE ROUTINE WITH NEOSTRATA PRODUCTS?
Yes! Absolutely - I would love too. Having facials are all well and good and can leave you feeling relaxed, invigorated and with glowing skin, but like with anything, maintaining a good skin care routine at home is essential to retain the benefits of these facials.
You may be under the impression that expensive products are a waste of time or that they are just out to take your money, but in actual fact, the opposite is true...
Firstly, the difference between products you can buy from Superdrug or Boots for example compared to professional products, is that professional products have been properly tested, the percentage of actives in them is higher and more effective, they are scientifically proven, contain less fragrance, they actually make changes to the skin and more money is spent on the actual quality of the ingredients.
Secondly, when we buy products, we often get sucked into the packaging, or the wording on the bottle, or that it claims to knock back the years etc etc. We get advised by shop assistants who not only do not know our skin, but often mis-diagnose and sell us the wrong product. We have all been there and we have all had tons of lotions and potions on the go and many we have, but haven't used them. Or, we use them for a week or so, then dont bother too.
This is where my regime comes in. I will not only properly asses and analyse your skin so I can recommend you the correct and appropriate products, but I will not recommend you anything that I know you will not be able to keep up at home if you are a busy mum for example.
Even though NeoStrata® may be on the pricier side, they are backed up with science, dermatologically tested and clinically proven with results, and if used correctly, you only need a tiny amount of products, making them last months. A false economy with cheaper drugstore products.
