Glycolic peels are amazing professional facials that use medical grade glycolic acid and salicylic acid combined to help remove dead cells to the deepest level.

.

They really have amazing benefits from removing dull, damaged layers. It will also address skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, photoaging, scars, uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles and helps clear up acne. A consultation is done before this treatment is started, to see what your main concerns are. It's tailored to suit each individual client. It's not a relaxing facial but more of a treatment that works on specific concerns.

These are a great chemical peel for men's skin also. You do not shave or wax at least 48hrs before treatment and you should not expose your skin to UV light one week before treatment and one week after.

The facial will start off with a cleansing and toning process, followed by the glycolic acid being applied to your face and neck with a brush. Your therapist will be wearing gloves. The glycolic is left to work from five to 15 minutes, however all skin types can take it at different lengths of time. It may feel tingly or hot on the skin but it's completely safe. It's then neutralised and the steamer is applied to thicker skin types. This helps to really release the blackheads from the skin. They will be given an extra nudge to release them. Blackheads are usually characterised by red pimples in younger skin and caused by the inflammation of the sebaceous glands that may have a bacterial infection. Nobody likes the look of blackheads and this is a great facial to help remove them. This is why it is so important to wash your skin thoroughly at home, but be aware to remove all your facewash product also as this can cause problems in itself. People tend to be very good at washing the larger areas of their face, cheeks, neck and forehead, but simply miss the crevasses of the nose or under the bottom lip.

So, if you're looking for an amazing results driven facial treatment this is defiantly the one for you and it's suitable for both men and women.

The question of pedestrianisation in the town centre has divided Killarney for years but a survey by the Killarney Advertiser this week shows the town slightly more in favour of it.

A total of 37.14 percent of respondents want the pedestrianisation of Plunkett St to remain as it is – closed to traffic on a permanent basis while 24.76 want it to go back to its pre-pandemic arrangement where the street was only closed to vehicular traffic between 7pm and 7am each night.

An additional 34.29 percent want to see an increase in pedestrianisation in town centre by extending the Main St arrangement that was in place during the summer. In that period the town’s main thoroughfare was closed to traffic, day and night, during the weekend.

Only 20 percent of the respondents want to abolish pedestrianisation altogether, but that is still a significant number ensuring that this debate will linger on for a long time yet.

A local group hosting a life-saving information day tomorrow (Saturday) are to receive huge exposure on national TV after a crew came down to interview them about their campaign.

Members of Killarney Cardiac Response Unit (KCRU) – who are planning a ‘Restart a Heart Day’ to raise awareness about life-saving techniques – invited journalist Paul Byrne and Virgin Media TV crew to town this week.

It’s hoped their campaign will be broadcast tonight (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday).

The KCRU event takes place tomorrow in ANAM Arts and Cultural Centre between 10.30am and 4pm as part of the European Restart a Heart Day. It’ll include CPR demos, public information, an art display, a video launch w️ith many prizes to be won.

“The crew interviewed Community Responder Helen Duggan who explained the events taking place on Saturday,” Kevin O’Leary from KCRU told the Killarney Advertiser.

“European Restart a Heart Day was founded with the support of the European parliament and takes place on October 16 every year. We’re spreading the message that 20 minutes of your time could make all the difference saving a life.”

In 2021, the focus of the event is on survivors with the hashtag #CPRSavedMyLife.

“With this campaign we want to create awareness that everyone can learn CPR and facilitate BLS courses in schools and public locations.”

He said they hope that Kerry TDs Danny Healy-Rae, Brendan Griffin and Minister for Education Norma Foley will be in attendance throughout the day, and the public are invited to attend.

“Find out how simple actions can save lives. Prizes include a three day First Aid course valued at €300, two First Aid kits, and a voucher for a local business.”
