We are pretty sure that you have heard of these treatments before, but do you know what they are and what they do? Read on to find out all you need to know…
Did you know, that you have layers upon layers of dead skin cells just sitting on the top layer of your skin on your face? This is a major contributing to some of your most annoying skin issues, such as dullness, wrinkles and breakouts. This is totally natural, and nothing to worry about - buut these days, the skincare market has various non-invasive procedures to get rid of this problem.
The most “cutting edge” (excuse the pun) of these treatments, is Dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that involves a your highly trained beautician gently scraping the surface of your skin with a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin and that peach fuzz hairs.
It gets rid of facial hair, can make your face feel baby soft, and helps give you a smooth foundation application, all without having to use harsh exfoliators.
1 hour treatment: £50
**SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER: £25 (first 10 bookings)
LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive facial treatment that uses narrow band, non-thermal LED light energy to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It’s recommended for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring as well as anyone looking to restore their skin’s natural radiance.
LED Light Therapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light where each colour has a specific skin benefit. As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally.
The skin uses the light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells - or in the case of treating acne, kill bacteria. The energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair. During the treatment, you’ll simply lie underneath a light screen while the device does all the work.
Blue Light: This is a powerful antibacterial properties for the treatment of acne without irritation, reduces oil production, prevents future breakout and offers a UV-free alternative for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.
Green Light: This reduces pigmentation and redness, has a calming effect and has been proven to assist in reducing malasma and other skin discolorations.
Yellow Light: This reduces redness and wrinkle-causing inflammation while boosting circulation. It works by stimulating the rejuvenation process within your cells to improve the density of your skin (collagen and elastin production drops after the age of 25, causing those pesky fine lines).
Red Light: This increases natural hydration levels, reduced redness and inflammation, shrinks the appearance of pores, regulates oil production, improves circulation, accelerates skin repair as is a medically-approved treatment for rosacea.
