THE HYPER-SENSITIVE FACIAL,
The Hyper-Sensitive Facial - £65
Sensitive skin is defined as having heightened sensory responses to chemical, environmental or even social triggers. If you have sensitive skin you’re more likely to experience stinging, itching, burning, dryness, redness or breakouts.
This facial has been specifically designed for you with only your skins health in mind... you will finally be able to enjoy a facial perfectly prescribed for you.
Beginning with a double cleanse with the NeoStrata® Restore PHA facial cleanser. This soap-free, non-foaming gel formulation will gently cleanse and prepares the skin for the facial. Formulated with a non-irritating Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA), known to lightly exfoliate without drying skin's protective moisture barrier.
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. You may experience a slight tingle with this, but this is perfectly normal and will only last a few moments.
The LED light therapy 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.
The Exuviance® Bionic Oxygen mask (if chosen) will breathe life back into dull tired cells. This deep oxygenating cleanser works like a deep cleansing masque to thoroughly cleanse and purify congested pores, stimulate healthy cell turnover and reveal smoother, more radiant skin. The main benefits are; dark spots, acne, pores & texture, asphyxiated skin (smokers skin).
Next, a NeoStrata® Pure Hyaluronic Acid Biocellulose mask is then applied with a cooling and soothing jade roller massage. This mask is a replenishing treatment that cools and provides intense hydration. Formulated to deliver moisture to plump and smooth the look of skin and try to take down any erythema (redness) of the skin.
The jade roller massage not only soothes and cools the skin, but increases circulation, improves elasticity, stimulates lymphatic drainage and reduces inflammation.
Finishing this facial with some NeoStrata® bionic face serum which has been formulated to visibly correct signs of aging skin including enhanced radiance, intense moisturization and overall clarity, followed NeoStrata® bionic face cream. This will provide intense hydration and help soothe and revitalize the look of stressed skin. It will also keep the serum in the skin as creams act as the umbrella to the serum, stopping it from escaping or evaporating from the skin.
You can choose to add in an Exuviance® Bionic Oxygen mask for an extra £10. This is an energizing mask that uses a blend of molecular Oxygen and an innovative Bionic Complex to restore a bright and luminous complexion to dull, tired skin.
It will begin to bubble and oxygenate upon contact with the skin.

WHY IS THE HYPER-SENSITIVE FACIAL DIFFERENT?
Do you ever fear using a new product as you are worried your skin will burn, or feel itchy, or bring you out in blotches?
Do you really want to have a facial, but just can't bring yourself to do so as you know you'll just hate it and you skin will come out looking worse?
This facial has been specifically designed for all my super sensitive clients in mind. I have chosen on the best and targeted products from leading skincare experts NeoStrata®. NeoStrata® have been developing skincare for over 40 years and everything they have developed has scientifically proven results.
So now you can rest assured your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, pampered and looked after with this facial.
WILL THE PRODUCTS YOU USE MAKE MY SKIN BURN OR FEEL ITCHY?
No. With the exception of the Exuviance® Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish which will give you a little tingle (totally normal), nothing I use in this facial will have you feeling discomfort during the facial.
This is because NeoStrata® have developed specific formulation skin care that has non-comedogenic formulations and well-tolerated anti-aging ingredients like PHAs.
HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE THESE FACIALS?
It's up to you - you can have them as often as weekly if you prefer. Because I do not use any harsh acids or peels that require you skin to recover, you can pretty much have them as frequent as you like.
CAN YOU CREATE 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.
