THE 'FULL WORKS' FACIAL,
The 'Full Works' Facial - £75/£85
This is my signature and most popular facial. Fully developed by myself and composed of my many years and knowledge of skin.
This really IS the ultimate facial as this will leave no stone unturned!
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.
Ultrasonic exfoliation uses negative ions to pull debris from the skin. The saponification process (which softens & loosens sebum) with open pores from the steamer, allows for easier extraction and raises the pH. of oily skin (oily skin has a lot of sebum which is acidic).
This is complimented with a vacuum suction and manual blackhead extraction.
Dermaplaning will slough off the last 21 days of skin build up.
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.
Direct high frequency can serve a few purposes, but depending on your skin type, I will use either neon (orange) or argon (purple) gas to help improve elasticity and texture and oily skin respectively. Neon (orange) gas generates infrared light which emits heat (blood circulation increases) and acts as relaxing and inflammatory. Argon (purple) gas generates UV light which splits oxygen molecules in the air into a trivalent oxygen gas; Ozone. Ozone acts as an antiseptic/antibacterial agent and is dehydrating; thus reducing acne.
A bespoke and tailored hydro jelly mask is applied whilst you receive an amazing and relaxing upper back, neck and décolletage massage.
Ultrasonic infusion uses a positive polarity along with a positively charged serum which is jammed packed with active ingredients and vitamins, to push it deeper into the skin for maximum benefit. Serums are super effective, with almost pure ingredients, so ultrasonic infusion will push the serum into the layers of skin where it can work its magic! The vibrations from the ultrasonic infusion create a very relaxing feeling on the skin.
To complete your facial, we will finish with a jade roller massage using a cream that works synergistically with the serum just applied. Creams are really important to finish with because without them, serums will evaporate from the skin. Creams are like the umbrellas to stop this from happening.
A Peel2Glow (if chosen) is a 2-part glycolic & mandelic superficial chemical peel. Derived from sugar cane & almonds, this peel is the PERFECT solution to smooth out the skins texture, encourage evening of pigmentation, resurface, improve hydration, tightening & firming and speeding up cell turnover. The first solution to be applied is the purifying 'peel' solution. This will gently remove skin impurities and old dead skin cells resulting in a soft skin texture. The 'glow' part moisturises and protects the skin against external, aggression and pollution. Brings light and glow into your skin. You will be able to take home the remaining glow solution to use the next day!
ALL MY FACIALS ARE SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES AND ALL AGES AS I WILL TAILOR THE PRODUCTS AND TECHNIQUES USED FOR YOUR EXACT SKIN TYPE.

WHAT'S 'THE FULL WORKS FACIAL' SO DIFFERENT AND SPECIAL?
The difference between 'The Full Works Facial' and other facials available in Norwich, 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 and other facials 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 FULL WORKS FACIAL' FOR?
Anyone who wants a facial to end all facials!
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.
This really is a unique facial that nobody else in Norwich or Norfolk is offering as it completely unique to me and my clinic! The Full Works Facial has been months in the making and has a lot of research behind it and each and every step has been highlighted above so you can see the reasoning behind why I have chosen to combine the treatments I have chosen together and what each one targets and helps with.
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 ANY PART OF THIS FACIAL HURT?
No. Everything in this facial is 100% pain free including the high frequency.
You may feel an ever so slight tingling with the Exuviance® Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish as it works to loosen the dead skin, but this is not painful by any means and is perfectly normal and expected.
HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE 'THE FULL WORKS 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.
