    Have you ever wondered what actually happens during a Facial Peel?

    The word “Peel” can sound a little scary!  Coupled with a lot of horror stories about painful red flaky skin that makes you hide indoors for a week……it’s no wonder that we find a lot of our clients worry about having a facial peel.

    AlumierMD offers a range of light to medium peels to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.

    Don’t believe us??  Come and see us on Friday 9th November when you will be able to watch a facial peel demonstration and speak to our highly trained skin care therapists about exactly what they do and what to expect. Everyone is different, so our skin therapists can offer bespoke peels to make sure its right for your skin type and condition. In fact, they are so bespoke, that they tailor the peel like a jigsaw puzzle on your face to tackle different conditions in different areas. The live demos are happening at 11am and 1pm.

    I just want some skin care advice

    Great! That is what this VIP day is all about………….

    There is no obligation to buy or book any treatments, if advice is all you need then that is absolutely fine…..pop in and have a drink, cake and a chat with us, meet the AlumierMD rep and our expert skin care therapists who will be available to talk to you about your concerns and answer any questions you may have.

  • 7 Reasons Why You Should Be Getting Regular Facials…

    1) It helps you to get the most out of your daily skincare routine

    No matter how good you are at home with your daily routine there is likely to be some build up of dead skin and clogged pores. Seeing a professional every 4-6 weeks will ensure a thorough overall of your face. By maintaining smooth skin and refined pores, your skincare will absorb properly and do what it is supposed to.

    2) Anti-ageing

    Regular facials promote cell turnover, boost collagen production and maintain healthy skin balance – all of which are fabulous for preventing early ageing of the skin.

    3) Professional Strength Serums

    Finishing your facial with a professional strength serum is the perfect ending. Serums are more easily absorbed after a facial, penetrating the deeper layer of skin and improving the overall appearance.

    4) Massage for Lymphatic Drainage

    Most facials include a certain amount of facial massage, even if it’s just massaging on the products. Apart from sending us into a deep relaxation it also helps to promote lymphatic drainage which gets rid of toxins and reduces fluid retention. Flushing out these toxins also promotes better circulation which leaves your skin glowing and youthful. Which brings us on to our next point.

    5) You’ll glow straight away

    When facials are done right they give your skin immediate results. If you have a big event and your complexion needs a boost of radiance or its youthful glow restored, a facial can provide just what you need.

    6) Professional Strength Exfoliation

    It’s near impossible to avoid environmental free-radical damage. We’re bombarded daily with unavoidable toxins, UV rays and dirt that cause our skin to look dull and congested. We offer the latest innovative exfoliating skin peels. They can be customised for each client and as well as the short term benefits of glowing healthy looking skin, over time they will also help to diminish acne and other facial scarring.

    7) Home Skincare Guidance

    Here at The Face, we know about skin. Your therapist will get to know your skin over time and by committing to regular facials she can monitor any changes and recommend the right products for you.

  • The double chin treatment that everyone’s talking about…

    Strawberry Lift is the revolutionary new non-invasive double chin reduction treatment. This uniquely designed treatment banishes double chins and delivers a smoother, more toned jawline.
    Until recently the only option for tackling stubborn fat and loose skin around the neck and jawline was a facelift or double chin lift. Well, that was until Strawberry Lift!

    Results can be seen after just one treatment but a course of four is required for long-term results. We know it sounds too good to be true! But seeing is believing so we’ve included some typical before and after photos in this article.

    If you’re struggling with a double chin or saggy jowls then worry no more! Strawberry Lift treatment is here to help you feel fabulous.

    So how does it work we hear you ask? Here’s the sciency bit – don’t worry we’ll keep it simple. Strawberry Lift double chin treatment combines two different techniques – first 12 minutes of targeted laser therapy to disperse the fat contained within the cells resulting in them shrinking (like magic!). The lymphatic system removes these fatty deposits via the Liver and the Kidneys and any content that remains in the body is naturally passed out in the urine. Next, a brand new silent ultrasound which can be used on the neck, jowls and chin. This stimulates the body’s own collagen production to lift, tighten and define the shape of the jawline.

    During the course of treatment, you will be weighed (weight gain can affect treatment results) then have photos taken before and post each procedure. As we mentioned results can be seen after one treatment however a course of four at two-week intervals is recommended for long-term results. You can pay for the treatment on an appointment by appointment basis or take advantage of a discount when booking the full course.
