If cucumber slices over your eyes and the occasional sheet mask is your idea of a facial, then you’re in for a lavish treat. Here at Body Perfection Laser Clinic, we have put together an extensive list of facial services, designed with you in mind.
Everyone’s skin is different and requires a varied amount of attention, therefore it is important to research the treatment that will be the most beneficial for your skin. From dry to sensitive skin, we’ve got you covered with our rang of high-quality skin treatments.
What is a facial?
Facials are not just a luxurious way to relax and take the time for yourself, but they are also a highly beneficial treatment for the skin on your face and neck. A basic facial is designed to cleanse the pores on your face by exfoliating the dead skin cells away. Once this has been done, a custom facemask or moisturising treatment helps to sooth or treat common skin concerns.
Whether it’s for problematic skin or simply to keep skin glowing and healthy, facials are meant to rejuvenate the skin on your face whilst providing a relaxing feeling for the customer. Facials are a great way to feel relaxed and revitalised from the comfort of a spa or in a skincare clinic and provide you with a well-needed break away from hectic, daily life.
How often should I get a facial?
The lifecycle of a facial is broken down into different timeframes:
- Immediately after receiving a facial, your skin radiates a healthy glow from all the pampering and luxurious products that have been used on your face.
- Two to three days later, your face will feel hydrated and your circulation will have been given that all important boost.
- Between 28-48 days, your cells regenerate and the long-term benefits of the facial can be seen.
- When it gets to around the 4–6-week mark, it’s time to schedule your next appointment. This is to again remove the dead skin cell build up and rid the skin of any impurities that may have accumulated.
For those who wish to maintain a healthy skincare routine, we recommend booking yourself in every 4-6-weeks. This is because your skin cells regenerate and shed during this time frame, so you will be working in conjunction with your natural renewal process.
If you have a wedding, event or something important in your calendar, you can always schedule in a facial treatment to make sure your skin is looking it's absolute glowing best!
What types of facials are available?
Most facials have been constructed to suit different skin types and to suit the skincare needs of the person receiving a facial. The world of skincare is always evolving, and with new technology and new products on the market every year, it is important to get to grips with the different types of facials that may be the best fit for you.
An example of a luxurious and relaxing facial would be the Body Perfection Facial at the body perfection laser clinic. This signature facial is designed to give you fantastic results. This facial treatment includes a deep cleanse, RF collagen face and neck treatment, HydraFacial and LED light therapy.
Alongside these hugely beneficial steps, you’re provided with a comforting heated blanket, relaxing music and surrounded by scented candles which will give you the feeling of being in a luxury spa.
Another fantastic facial offering would be the Carbon Laser Facial or the “Baby Doll Facial”. This charcoal treatment helps to weaken the appearance of pigmentation, active ache, wrinkles and large pores.
The treatment involves adding a carbon paste to the area and blasting the skin with short bursts of laser energy. This penetrates deep into the skin, freshening the complexion and removes layers of dead skin. This exfoliating facial promotes new collagen which is perfect for anti-ageing and leaves your skin feeling re-vitalised, fresh and glowing.
Speaking of anti-ageing, there are also a number of treatments that are designed to reduce the look of fine-lines and wrinkles. At the body perfection clinic, there are a multitude of treatments that can assist with the appearance of ageing.
A great treatment would be the EnerPeel Eye Peel which is an anti-ageing, pigment clearing facial peel that can reduce the look of dark circles and crow’s feet. There are also a number of peels for the skin, lips, eyes and beck that can combat a plethora of skin complaints such as acne and rosacea. Another anti-ageing treatment would be the Obagi Face Peel or the Plasma Facial, both designed to tackle common ailments that align with the ageing process.
Another popular treatment at the body perfection clinic is the Radio Frequency (RF) Collagen Facial. This non-surgical face lift combines bipolar and tripolar radio frequencies to induce collagen production. The dermal layer of the skin is heated to maintain normal temperature and the RF energy enters into the deep dermal layer. The heat generates a focus found healing response, thickening the dermal later which produces more collagen. Wrinkles then appear firmer, tighter and the face is given a lifted look.
Of course, there are also a number of treatments that can provide a helping hand when it comes to the ageing process. From anti-ageing injectables such as Botox, fillers and localised wrinkle treatments, the body perfection laser clinic also offers laser hair removal and Derma FNS Micro Needling.
Combined with regular, hydrating facials, there are many different approaches you can take, depending on your desired outcome. Either way, there will always be a treatment that fits into your routine. From skin dryness to fine lines, your specialist will ensure that your skin is well looked after and will help you to maintain healthy looking skin.
Is there anything I can do?
Whilst seeing a professional is often the best way to take care of your skin, there are many hints and tips that you can adopt from home in between visits. Having a cleansing routine will help to reduce blocked pores and allow your skin to breathe. An oil-based cleanser will breakdown any make-up or dirt particles and leave a blank canvas for toners, serums and at home face masks.
Water is also your best friend. Drinking lots of water will help with circulation and clear skin, whilst keeping you hydrated too. Of course, wearing make-up to bed is an absolute no no!...
OK, I’m ready, where do I start?
Facials are not just a frivolous way to indulge yourself, they are a way to build a healthy relationship with your skin and keep you looking your absolute best. Of course, a facial cannot cure everything, it’s more of a preventative method to make sure you skin stays as hydrated and healthy as possible.
A facial experience should not be daunting at all. Finding the right spa or clinic is important, as you want to make sure you’re getting the most out of your appointment. A professional, trained therapist will sit down with you before your treatment to discuss your skin type, your problem areas and talk you through the best options for your skin. It is important to be as honest and open with your facial therapist so they can tailor the best facial to suit your skin-type and skincare needs.
A good facial will have great after effects. The massaging action of a professional facial will increase blood flow and oxygenation which helps to remove toxins from the skin. The deep cleanse will help to fight certain skin problems such as mild ache or skin dryness, leaving your face glowing, healthy and hydrated.
The skin is constantly renewing itself and each month, dead skin cells travel from the innermost layer of the epidermis to the surface of the skin. This process is called keratinisation. The dead skin cells provide a barrier for the skin from pollution, germs and irritants and are naturally exfoliated by the skin over time. To prevent the build-up of too many dead skin cells, it is important to adopt a good skincare regime and schedule in a facial.
Facials are the way forward!
The good news is that if you begin to incorporate facials into your regular skincare routine, you can try out a number of treatments over time. This will help you to find the best facial for your skin. Facials will cleanse your skin from pollutants and every day dirt that will help to rejuvenate and improve your skin’s texture and tone.
Aside from also increasing blood flow to the face, the massaging movements create healthier cells and improved blood circulation. This means more oxygen and nutrients can flow through the skin creating a healthier and nourished look, leaving you feeling healthy and happy.
