Dermaplaning - NOW AVAILABLE

INTRODUCTORY OFFER IS JUST £35.00 FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER (normally £50)

Dermaplaning is a safe, painless and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus (aka peach fuzz). The procedure can be performed monthly, in about sixty minutes, with no downtime post-treatment. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Dermaplaning removes onot only removes all the dead skin cells but also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth.

Benefits of dermaplaning

Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, will not grow back thicker or darker. Microdermabrasion  which also physically exfoliates skin, does not remove vellus hair. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.

More benefits of Dermaplaning? 

  • Provides deeper product penetration
  • Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils
  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Safe procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peachfuzz”
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Diminishes the look of fine lines
  • Works on all skin types

Who should consider dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels (peels penetrate skin to act at the cellular level, thus are contraindicated). 

Don't try this at home

It's important to note that dermaplaning employs a specific technique requiring a delicate touch and a skilled approach to resurface skin. Thus, I don't recommend shaving at home as an alternative to dermaplaning.   Unlike shaving, dermaplaning is performed freehand with a surgical scalpel (the average razor has two blades which are also duller than surgical blades) on tautly stretched skin. The methodology requires short strokes at a certain angle in particular patterns depending on the facial region.

BENEFITS OF DIAMOND MICRODERMABRASION

You’ll be thrilled with the results of even a single Diamond Microdermabrasion treatment, especially when you have a special occasion on your calendar and need your skin to look refreshed and healthy.

It’s Non-Invasive 
The Diamond Microdermabrasion process tackles flaws at the skins surface level by treating its outermost layer. This process removes the skins surface layer of dead skin cells, via gentle exfoliation. As a result, it’s not invasive, and your skin isn’t abraded or wounded past the epidermis.

It’s Quick 
Another advantage of the Diamond Microdermabrasion process is that it’s fast. According to research conducted by The Academy of Dermatology, it usually takes less than one hour. You may require various sessions, especially if you want to attain optimal results. However, most people need only one session per month.

Perfect for All Skin Types 
The Diamond Microdermabrasion procedure is ideal for all skin types and for cosmetic issues associated with aging skin, like age spots, sun damage and any other kind of discoloration as well as fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps people who have oily skin and helps reduce acne scarring. 

Reliable and Safe
In the hands of an experienced professional esthetician, this treatment is far more reliable and safe compared to home Microdermabrasion kits.

Improves the Results of Skincare Products & Facials
The Diamond Microdermabrasion facial treatment enables products to be better absorbed into the skin and ensures that results from other types of Dermalogica Facials are enhanced, making your skin look and feel even more beautiful. Better absorption rates ensure that you get optimal results from the products you are using due to easy penetration into the skin. It’s also compatible with all of your personal beauty regimes and will never interfere with them.

Helps Control Breakouts
The culprit behind pimples is actually the presence of harmful substances in your pores. When your pores are clogged, oil and bacteria build up. Diamond Microdermabrasion treatments invade the pores and release the clogging agents. Having treatments on a regular basis ensures that your ducts are immaculate and operating at 100%, helping to eliminate the risk of future breakouts.

Ion Active Power Treatment

What Ingredients are in the IonActives?

Dermalogica IonActive uses encapsulated ingredients. This means that the power and activity level of the ingredients are preserved therefore delivering powerful results for each treatment every time. Each ingredient is encapsulated with either a liposome or lipid microstructure that ensures delivery of quality measured powerful ingredients into the skin for optimal results.

Here are a few of the key ingredients in the Ion Actives:

Niacinamide—A clearing ingredient, perfect for preventing breakouts in acne prone and congested skin.

Hyaluronic Acid—A hydrating active that delivers intense moisture to dry and dehydrated skin whilst calming sensitised skin and helping to build the skin natural defence.

Ligiopeptide—A brightening concentrated active that helps to inhibit pigmentation resulting in a more balanced skin tone.  The ingredient also works to control pigment production therefore helping to prevent future pigmentation developing.

Retinol— firming concentrated active with an amazing 1% microencapsulated retinol to address the visible signs of skin ageing such as fine lines and discolouration. 

Why do I need this treatetment?

Challenging skin conditions such as premature skin ageing, acne and dehydration often need more intense, invasive treatments in order to show dramatic results. Not everyone has the time for long treatments but still want the results.

THE ION ACTIVE POWER TREATMENT allows your skin to receive the benefits of an intensified treatment in only 60 minutes, with no discomfort or down time.

How does it work?

THE ION ACTIVE POWER TREATMENT works with the skin’s natural biology to produce enhanced benefits. With each treatment completely personalised according to your Face Mapping skin analysis, to determine which key actives will be applied to your skin. Available concentrates include:

  • Retinol to firm and reduce visible signs of skin ageing.
  • Niacinamide to control and prevent adult acne breakouts.
  • Hyaluronic Acid to relieve dehydrated and / or sensitized skin.
  • Oligopeptide to brighten hyperpigmentation for a more balanced skin tone.

After these actives are applied to the skin, they become “supercharged” with thermal activity generated by your skin therapist, who uses heating or cooling Gelloids (massage medium-masque hybrids) and the latest technology to drive ingredients faster and further into your skin. Technology used can be Galvanic, High Frequency, ultrasonic, Ultrasound and LED (Light-Emitting Diode) Therapy, depending on your specific skin needs.

What can I Expect from an Ionactive Treatment?

You will immediately find your skin revived and refreshed. Most clients notice further visible results immediately after treatment. You can expect to see even more progression of results after a few days and across a course of treatments. Whilst results will depend on your specific skin condition and how frequently you receive IonActive Power Treatments, you will immediately find your skin to :

  • Be brighter.
  • Be revitalised.
  • Have less fine lines and wrinkles.

If you follow a good skincare routine at home this will maintain your general skin health and the results of your Ionactive treatment.

Bio-Lift (Non-Surgical Face Lift)

THE BIO FACE LIFT technology uses micro currents to stimulate cells and re-educate muscles. Bio lifting tones muscles, and softens wrinkles. It is non-invasive and non-abrasive.

With a surgical face lift, the muscles and skin are cut and stretched causing scars and scar tissue. Within a few years after a surgical lift, muscles and skin will again begin to sag. Bio lifting is pain free, non invasive and effective.

Using bio face lifting therapy, facial muscles feel and look firmer, and the appearance of wrinkles are reduced. It also helps to improve the tone and all the features of your face such as your eyes, cheeks, mouth, chin and skin. You will not only see and feel the difference immediately, but so will everyone else!. This technology was featured on Oprah and has been sweeping the nation ever since. Called the "Non-Surgical face lift" the benefits of Bio Face lifting when combined with Photon Therapy are simply amazing.

 

 - softens wrinkles

 - tones and firms the muscles

 - rejuvenates the skin

 - stimulates skin cells

 - re-educates the muscles

 - keeps skin healthy

 - increases the skins natural production of collagen by 14%

 - increases elastin by 48%

 - increases blood circulation by 38%

Microcurrent - A non-invasive procedure that reduces the signs of ageing by utilising low level electricity that mirrors the body's own electrical impulses. Microcurrent reduces the signs of ageing without the recovery, downtime and expense of surgical procedures.

Radio frequency - Non-surgical tightening for the signs of loose or sagging skin. RF energy targets and increases collagen production helping to tighten and lift the skin.This can be combined with microcurrent which targets the underlying muscles. It is recommended to have a course of 10 treatments twice weekly. This will re-tone the muscles and rejuvenate the skin. After the initial course, a treatment once every 4-6 weeks is required to maintain.

THE BIO FACE LIFT is tailored to your individual needs and your therapist will use a combination of microcurrent and radio freqency to give you a fully customised face lift. During your facial, we utilise a hydro mask, infused with intensive moisturising and powerful antioxidant ingredients that replenishes sun damaged, dehydrated skin and helps to smooth and soften the appearance offine lines and wrinkles. This is combined with photon light therapy which uses LED light to help pigmentation and acne by stimulating the collagen and elastin.
