Whilst this Christmas this year may feel a little different to usual, you’ll no doubt still want to look and feel your best!
A facial treatment is the perfect way to beat the lockdown blues and treat yourself ahead of the big day.
But with so many different facials to choose from, which one will be best for you?
Traditionally these type of facials start with a deep cleanse and exfoliation, followed by a mask treatment and massage. Always popular, they can contain aromatherapy products and hydrating creams to smooth, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.
Suitable for all skin types. If you have sensitive skin check with your therapist which oils will be used.
Loved by celebrities this “red carpet” facial, uses a special handpiece which actively removes dead skin cells and debris, whisking it away from the surface of the skin. Unlike beauty facials, a gentle peel solution is applied to help loosen congestion and aid extraction. Treatment finishes with hydrating serums delivered directly into the skin. If you suffer from dull or congested skin, this is definitely the treatment for you this year! Find out more here
Suitable for all skin types and ages
LED Light Facial:
Unlike traditional facials, this treatment involves LED light. LED (light emitting diode) has been proven to rejuvenate the skin, helping to reduce pigmentation and fine lines and wrinkles. Most LED facials will start with a deep cleanse and hydrating mask, followed by application of the LED light. There are various wavelengths used in this treatment, depending on your skin concern. The most common are red (for skin rejuvenation) and blue (used to treat acne). Find out more here
Great for younger skins to keep aging at bay and those with skin showing signs of aging.
Power of 3 Facial:
This treatment combines 3 popular aesthetic treatments in one powerful facial. The facial starts with a deep cleanse, followed by crystal microdermabrasion which smooths skin and clears pores. Radiofrequency is then used to tighten and firm the skin (which feels like a hot stone massage). Treatment finishes with the delivery of nutrients directly into the skin via electroporation. This technique opens up the channels within the skin, allowing the nutrients to be delivered into the skin exactly where they need to be to do the most good. Find out more here
Great for aging skins, particularly those with jawline laxity or loss of facial volume
HIFU: Non-surgical facelift:
HIFU technology targets the muscle and skin layers to tighten and induce collagen production. Whilst more of an aesthetic treatment than a facial treatment, HIFU creates a physical lifting of the facial features, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and tightening the jawline. 20% of the result is visible immediately with full results seen in 3 months.

This popular non-surgical procedure is best for skins showing signs of laxity around the jawline and brows.
Whichever you choose, you’ll emerge radiant and feeling great. Spending time on yourself is more important than ever these days. To ensure best results from your treatment, always seek skincare advice from a skin specialist and if you are unsure most good clinics will offer you a free online skin consultation to discuss your skin and suggest best options for you.
