How often should I have a facial?
Facials are recommended every four to six weeks to keep the skin balanced and healthy. Courses of treatments can be a good idea before a big event or to treat any concerns on the skin.
What are the benefits of a facial?
The skin will appear brighter, clearer and more evenly toned. Even if you look after your skin at home yourself you will still see a difference in your skin.
How do I know which facial I need?
If you've never had a facial before then the Initiale treatment is a good one to begin with. A short consultation is always recommended before having a facial. This way the therapist can look at your skin and ask you what your concerns are.
If I have one facial do I need to keep having them every month?
No you can have them as little or often as you would like. In an ideal world once a month will keep your skin looking clear, healthy and hydrated. I can also keep an eye on it for any abnormalities and advise home care throughout the seasons.
Can I wear make up after a facial?
It is best to leave make up off the skin until the following day as this way the skin can get the maximum results from the products. There will be times though when this is not possible so if you do need to then just use the bare minimum and make sure you remove it thoroughly.
Will I need to buy the products to use at home?
This in entirely your choice. I can provide advice on what products are best suited for your skin type and give a prescription to take home. By looking after your skin at home you will be continuing the benefits of the treatment.
DIFFERENT FACIALS EXPLAINED
SK4 Micro Current Facial
This is by far my most popular facial treatment. It is results driven and recommended once a month. It keeps the facial muscles lifted, minimises pores, deep cleanses, hydrates and minimises fine lines.
SK2 Micro Current Mini Facial
This is a good introduction to the SK4 and for when time or money is tight. It also serves well as a booster in between treatments.
This treatment is great for exfoliating the skin. It uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade cyrstals.
COMCIT H20 Glow
Using micro-needling and cryo-oxygen, these treatments are recommended to minimise fine lines and wrinkles, acne and pigmentation.
AlumierMD Chemical Peel
Instant results with limited post-treatment down-time.
These are relaxing treatments that involve no machines, just hands-on massage and muscle stimulation combined with luxurious Matis products.
I can recommend a six month programme based on your individual skin type, lifestyle and goals.
With my knowledge and experience, I can help customers with:
Skin prone to acne
Greasy skin and blocked pores
Mature or ageing skin
