All facial treatments at The Skin Care Clinic are clinical rather than “fluffy”, however you will feel relaxed and your skin will glow after any or all of them. Different treatments are recommended based on your goals, your timeline, your home care products, your lifestyle and, of course, your skin condition! So, what are the ideal facial treatments you should add to your ‘to do’ list?
We always examine, choose and concoct based on the condition of your skin on the day and give you instructions for caring for your skin afterwards. Our facials are focused on giving deeper exfoliation and nourishment to the skin in order to decrease inflammation and increase healing and hydration
There are certain times of the year when having facial treatments are a must and these include:
- To rehydrate during winter or when our skin becomes confused at the change of season
- Before an event – a series, ideally, will have you radiant on the day
- Before you start and when you finish that long dreamed for holiday – whether to somewhere hot and humid or cold and dry – whether it’s a long haul flight or a trip in a car
It is ideal to have 3–6 facial treatments, 3–4 weeks apart; however, your skin consultant will plan this series with you. There is minimal downtime after these treatments, as the strongest are not given until staff see that your skin is well prepared for them. Some people may experience a little redness and/or flakiness a few days after, however this is rare as your skin will have been made ready beforehand.
Here are 4 of the Best Facial Treatments
1. Medi-facial & HydraFacials: tailor-made for each individual
Especially good for dehydrated, dry and sensitive skin, but equally effective on congested, blackhead-infested skin, a tailor-made clinical Medi-facial is perfect. It also makes a perfect pressie for someone you love.
If you have annoying pigmentation, general uneven skin tone, breakouts and problematic skin there is a combination of powders and solutions to help your skin anytime.
Your skin therapist, after examining your skin will mix and match ingredients to concoct the perfect solution for you. If you’re nearby, book in to see us.
If you’ve not started on a skin care program or if you are super diligent with your day to day regime the right Medi-facial will suit you and you’ll love it. Depending on your skin type and condition they can be enjoyed weekly and take around 45 min.
2. DermaFrac – or the “Fracky-Wacky” as many of our clients refer to it.
These are treatments which can be enjoyed by all but the very impaired and sensitive or if you have just too many pimples. Even one of these leaves your skin smooth, plumped, firmer and in 24 hours ready for anything, however, if you have time, ideally a series of 3 or 6 a month apart is taken, improving the long term overall health of your skin significantly. You’ll see from the video that there is virtually no downtime, makeup can be applied straight after and all you’ll feel is a little tight and tingly that evening. – easy!
Check out Our video –
Included in every DermaFrac treatment you will receive all four stages:
- Crystal free microdermabrasion – so no scratches
- Micro-needling – only goes as deep as is required
- Product infusion – serum chosen depends on your concern and is selected on the day
- LED Light Therapy – promotes collagen stimulation, suppresses inflammation, reduces irritation and redness, and reduces bacteria living underneath the skin.
It is possible to enjoy just microdermabrasion or the light therapy by itself if you are short of time or don’t like the idea of needles – they do not hurt though!!
If you book with us a series of 3 or 6 – we give you a pack of skin care products carefully chosen to boost the effects of the “wacky-fracky” over the following 3-5 days.
Most clients call this “the facelift in an hour!” – for the post-menopausal pick me up its fantastic! However, it is a brilliant facial treatment for all skins – though you do need to be prepped with at least 2 weeks use of an Osmosis MD Vitamin A serum at home (Renew, Calm, Clarify or Correct). It’s worth the wait!
Lie back and enjoy is all I can say. If you hate the idea of needles or elastic bands flicking at your skin then a series of A infusions are for you!
4. Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
(feels like tiny elastic bands flicking at your skin)
Remove the pigmentation, tighten up your skin, even out the skin tones, zap the visible capillaries – all in one session?? WOW!
Like all facial treatments, significant change happens when you have a series and this is especially relevant with rejuvenation of the skin using Intense Pulsed Light – don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
Building up the strength of your skin, ensuring it is well hydrated will create an environment for change to happen using IPL so we usually suggest a series of facial treatments and home care and then we finish you off being as beautiful as possible with a series of IPL treatments.
Time Line – If you are smart and lucky enough to be able to plan – check out our timeline for Perfect – or vastly improved skin!
Looking beautiful – Just needs a Plan! Enjoy!!
