Everything you need to know about proper facial care

Regular facial care

Seasonal facials are highly recommended.
The changing seasons have an impact on our skin, and facials are an excellent way to help it adjust and keep it properly hydrated. There are numerous types of facials to choose from. Treatments rely on a variety of techniques and serums, and ranging from just the basics to extremely posh.

Facials are a terrific antidote to sooth stress, release wrinkles and treat acne.
Skin treatments stimulate the regenerative properties of your skin resulting in a balanced complexion. The benefits of a facial enhance the overall condition of your skin and improve firmness and tone.

Premium grade serums are all-natural and nourishing.
They are available exclusively at salons and not in pharmacies or department stores.

Deep skincare

Exfoliation renews your skin, leaving it as smooth as a baby.

  • It targets skin texture, wrinkles and is an effective approach to anti-aging. Exfoliation is a non-surgical procedure and can be repeated several times to achieve desired results.

Holistic treatments use certified organic products and are based on ancient principles of Chinese medicine.

  • These all-natural treatments fill wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin. Furthermore, the use of soothing essential and clays have a pronounced effect on managing and lowering stress levels.

Non-surgical lifting uses methods which stimulate blood circulation and drain the lymphatic system.

  • Combined with massage, this treatment eliminates dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.

Many beauty clinics now offer Thermage or the Ulthera System.

  • Thermage use radiofrequencies to stimulate new collagen growth; while Ulthera uses ultrasound technology to strengthen the deep structure of the skin.
  • In both cases, the skin is heated and therefore there is a risk of burning, hyper-pigmentation and scarring.

Micro-dermabrasion is an excellent option for achieving a youthful appearance and a radiant glow.

  • As you may suspect, the abrasive process “scratches” the surface of the skin away, as a tiny vacuum simultaneously sucks up and removes the dead cells. The procedure is usually painless, although you may experience a slight tingling.
  • It is often used in conjunction with a deep moisturizing treatment or to prepare the skin for a photo-rejuvenation.

What is photo-rejuvenation?

This provides dramatic results but may require up to 6 months for the skin tissue completely heal.

  • The use of lasers or intense pulsed light penetrates deep layers of skin to stimulate and generate new collagen growth.
  • Using this method, one can expect a 50-75 per cent improvement in overall skin discolouration (brown spots), and up to a 60 per cent improvement in skin texture including the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
