Our New Bespoke Skin Treatments & Skincare
Do you have sensitive skin? Do you suffer with acne, rosacea, sun damage or pigmentation? Or are you looking for a reliable regime to beat the signs of ageing? Whatever your skin type or issue we have a revolutionary approach.... individualised creams, serums and skin treatments using pure ingredients that are tailor made for you. After all, no two skins are the same so why should we treat them as such?
in 2012 £2.1 billion was spent on skincare in the UK but how much of that was driven by packaging, advertising and marketing, rather than results? Are you seduced by the claims of advertisers, beautiful packaging and an alluring fragrance, only to be let down by the results? Then maybe you should look to science for the answers...
Have you found that your skin can become "immune" or sensitive with redness/dryness/spots after changing your skincare regime? Or does your skin feel tight after cleansing? Do you find that the more moisturisers you use, the dryer your skin becomes? This may be due to some of the ingredients in your products such as perfumes, preservatives or emulsifiers. During years of research on the stratum corneum (upper most layer of the skin), Prof A. M. Kligman discovered that far from being a layer of dead skin cells, this layer has several important functions:
So what makes our new skincare regime revolutionary? Well, Dermaviduals is a range that is made without harmful emulsifiers, preservatives or perfumes. It has patented technology which make it skin similar so that is readily absorbed and accepted by the skin, and its wide range of active ingredients such as liposomes and nanoparticles mean that your regime can be mixed to a bespoke prescription to treat your individual skin issues.
This is not just a take home solution for your skin though. If you enjoy a trip to a beauty salon for a facial and enjoy the relaxing experience, but are perhaps disappointed by the effects on your skin, you can book an hours appointment for the Dermavidual treatment. Here your skin will be assessed and a range of treatments applied including masks, peels, serums, and micro-needling. These treatments give you the relaxation and pampering you deserve with the results that your skin also deserves. An hours treatment costs just £95 and cleansers start from just £10.
So if you are ready to swap the pretty packaging and seductive fragrance of other well known brands, for a range the focusses on results, Dermaviduals is the one for you. No frills, No fuss, Just results.
We've been stocking this product for over 6 months now and it's generated a dedicated following amongst our clients, including myself!
Amalian Lashes is a unique formula that nourishes the lash and encourages the lash to grow for a longer period of time. Due to this mode of action it will take several weeks (usually 4-6) before you will see a significant difference in your lashes. But the results are worth waiting for - longer, thicker and darker lashes that are healthy and enhance your natural beauty. Perhaps the most important aspect of this product is it's safety. Unlike other preparations Amalian Lashes active ingredients are carried by hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in our skin, resulting in no irritation, no hypergigmentation of the skin and no changes to the colour of your eye.
So if you'd like to see the difference for yourself you can purchase over the phone, online in our skincare shop, or in person at our clinic in Burton-on-Trent. What are you waiting for? It's safe and effective!
We find that most of our clients are selective about who they confide in about their use of Botox or dermal fillers. Some shout it from the rooftops and will often proclaim "I don't care who knows!" Whilst others would be devastated if anyone guessed their skin rejuvenation secrets. But most frequently we hear our female clients say "I don't want my mum to find out" or "My husband would go mad if he knew!"
Whatever your preference, the truth is that non-surgical interventions like Botox and dermal fillers are on the increase. And contrary to popular belief, these treatments don't have to leave you looking frozen or "false". When applied with knowledge and skill these treatments simply enhance and refresh the appearance, and the most common compliment that clients report is "You look really well! What have you been doing?!"
So if you want to keep your treatments discreet, you can come to our treatment room just outside Barton-Under-Needwood for your Botox fix. Or you can wait till your other half goes out and we can visit you at home!
And you never know, if you do tell your mum or your other half, they may just book a treatment themselves!
Many clients new to non-surgical facial treatments are confused by the different options available. It's no surprise really when we can open any magazine or newspaper and read how certain celebrities have gone overboard on the Botox or may be sporting a trout pout. These articles are often written by journalists who have very little knowledge of the difference in aesthetic treatments. So how do we determine whether we treat with filler or a botulinum toxin treatment (Botox)?
Typically, lines that develop in the upper third of the face are caused by muscle contraction such as frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crows feet around the eyes. The first line of treatment for these dynamic lines is usually Botox, as this treatment actually works by relaxing the muscle that directly causes the line or wrinkle. However if a line or wrinkle is static, or is present when the muscle is relaxed i.e. not frowning or smiling, then Botox may only soften the line. In which case it is best to offer a dermal filler treatment to literally fill the crease of the wrinkle.
If lines are a problem in the lower two thirds of the face then usually a dermal filler is offered. Dermal fillers are a naturally occuring substance within the skin - hyaluronic acid. As we age the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin is diminishing explaining why our skin loses volume, plumpness and creases easier! Where there are lines or a loss of volume,dermal fillers can replace this. Common sites for correction include nose to mouth lines, marionette lines (sad mouth), smokers lines and plumping the vermillion border (edge of the lips). Dermal fillers may also be used to replace lost volume in the cheek area.
Remember though, if you aren't sure what treatment you'd like to book, we offer a free consultation either in our treatment room, Hidden Gem Day Spa (Uttoxeter) or in the comfort of your own home. We usually restrict this to within 25 miles of Burton-on-Trent, but if you aren't sure then just get in touch!
