Looking after your skin is so important for confidence, hygiene, appearance - and the odd selfie!

As with all our professional facials, they have to be tailored to suit the client's skin type and condition. A course of facials is always recommended, with maintenance facials thereafter and specific home care for your needs.

The first step if you have never had one is to book a skin consultation, and the facial will be done on the same day. It's suitable for both men and women over the age of 18. At the moment the blackhead busting facials are the most popular. You start off by lying on a warm comfortable couch under a cosy blanket. A discussion about your skincare routine, water intake etc with your therapist is then completed. Then it's time for a skin scan under a magnifying lamp to highlight the main areas of concern. Dry patches, open pores, blocked pores, milia, congestion, oily, redness, bumps under the surface.... all the issues you have will show up during the scan.

The outline of a facial would be; double cleanse, tone, exfoliate with an exfoliator that suits your skin type. I sometimes have to do two exfoliators but it really does depend on the skin that I'm presented with. I always do the exfoliation under the steamer with ozone on. The steam will activate the sweat glands and this leads to healthier skin texture and tone because of improving blood flow. When you combine this with ozone, the steam opens the pores and ozone begins to penetrate the skin. Ozone has higher penetration levels than steam alone, and it can reach up to the lymph tissue and fat layer. The steam can be on from five to 15 minutes. We do the extraction when the skin is softened. Yes it may hurt a little, but the results are amazing. If the pores have been blocked this is a serious reason why your pores can look enlarged. It's very important to have them cleared out especially for men. The facial is finished with a double clay mask which tightens the pores and has an anti-ageing effect. Finally, the eye cream is applied, serum and appropriate day cream and SPF.

We have a microdermabrasion facial which might suit if you like a machine based facial. We will recommend which facial will suit you the best, but if you have a preference, we can tailor it to suit your skin requirements.
