Hydrafacial is more than just a facial, its an experience, a feeling, a confidence and booster. Bringing out your confidence through healthy, glowing skin.
WHAT IS IT?
HydraFacial is so much more than just another facial. It’s an experience. A pleasure. A feeling. And a confidence booster. It focuses on the unique philosophy of ‘Skin Health for Life’. But, it’s also about much more than just great looking, healthy skin. When our skin looks good and feels good, we feel good too. That’s the difference you get with a HydraFacial.
HydraFacial uses advanced, patented vortex technology to deeply cleanse the skin and effectively deliver botanical ingredients containing nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, horse chestnut seed extract, red algae extract, copper, zinc and magnesium peptides to where they do the most good. In addition, HydraFacial also delivers powerful antioxidants to counteract damage by free radicals – from pollution, sun and stress – which can degrade the skin and accelerate the ageing process.
So, for long-term healthy skin and a glowing complexion why settle for an ordinary facial, when you can choose a HydraFacial?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
HydraFacial was created to provide the best skin of your life. The technology it uses is unique. And so are the amazing results it achieves. After just one treatment you’ll look great. And feel great. Instantly. And the more you use it – the healthier your skin will become.
The HydraFacial Treatment consists of a six-stage process taking around 60 minutes with no downtime.

Microblading is a technique used in permanent cosmetics to create natural looking eyebrows.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a technique used in permanent cosmetics to create natural looking eyebrows. Using a small specially designed ‘blade’ to imitate natural eyebrow hairs, microblading creates fine crisp hair strokes that look natural but gives you the shape you’ve always desired.
How long does it last?
Everyone’s skin is unique to them, therefore acts differently so it can vary. Typically you will need a colour boost every 12-18 months, however some may be able to go longer and some not as a long.
At your initial consultation your permanent cosmetics technician will discuss longevity with you.
Does it hurt?
Topical anaesthetic is applied to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
Would Microblading be right for me?
Microblading is suitable for almost anyone. Whether it be that you’ve over plucked in the past or have uneven shape or sparse brows that won’t grow. It’s also suitable due to medical reasons such as alopecia. Great for reducing the time you spend applying make up or boosting your confidence! We offer a free consultation to discuss whether the treatment is right for you with no obligation.
Will my eyebrows be perfect immediately after the treatment?
The first thing to remember is that eyebrows are sisters not twins! Saying that, time is spent before the treatment commences discussing with you desired shape and drawing on a template to ensure they are as symetrical as possible before making it permanent.
You also need to take into account healing time, your eyebrows will look darker than expected at first and tiny scabs form as the skin repairs itself.
You will be required to have a top up appointment 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment, at this appointment your permanent cosmetics technician will assess if there needs to be any additional hair strokes placed, if the colour needs to be darker and if any strokes are uneven in colour. Therefore, be prepared that in total it may be 12 weeks before you see the final outcome.
During & After the treatment
Expect your treatment to take around 2 hours in total. We are trained by and use the award winning KB Pro, which offer high quality, pharmaceutical pigments for long lasting and even colour in a huge variety of shades to match you perfectly. We will give you detailed after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us.
Cosmetic procedures such as skin tags, milia and cherry angiomas are no longer being treated by many doctors on the NHS. With cryotherapy, we can offer you this treatment in our clinic.
What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a fast, effective safe and new solution for the removal of skin imperfections. The Cryotherapy device is both CE and FDA registered.
How Does it Work?
It emits a fine jet of Nitrous Oxide under high pressure which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s so incredibly accurate.
What Can be Treated?
Cryotherapy offers the ideal treatment for:
Does it Hurt?
There will be a pain sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the Nitrous Oxide reaches the bottom of the area. There might be a little residual stinging for a few minutes after the treatment, this is normal.
During and After Treatment
After an initial consultation to ascertain suitability for the treatment, the applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. This could be from 1-30 seconds, depending on the size and depth. Cryotherapy is a relatively low-risk procedure. It delivers a freeze directly to the area, and not the healthy surrounding tissue. The treated area may go darker over a few weeks, but will return to normal pigmented skin in about 6 weeks. We will give you a full list of do’s and don’ts and aftercare advice, but if you are concerned about anything please call us.

A crucial part of skincare maintenance……from Red Carpet Facials to Deep Peels.
What is a Facial Peel?
Peels are a crucial part of skin care maintenance that allow the skin to rejuvenate. Dead skin cells from the surface of the skin are removed to allow new healthy cells to grow back, resulting in fresher, smoother looking skin. Facial Peels can also help to treat blemishes, scars and help reduce the signs of ageing. We have a range of Facial Peels available at The Face, from Red Carpet Peels to deep peels performed by our aesthetic clinician. The ZO Skin Health and Medical range also offer at home peel products. We can recommend the right peel for you during your consultation.
Zo Stimulator Peel
This is the perfect Red Carpet or Lunchtime peel with no downtime. This is a favourite before big events such as a wedding, leaving you with a glowing rejuvenated complexion. The ZO Stimulator Peel uses a combination of three exfoliating ingredients to remove dead-skin cells. It stimulates cell turnover for continued improvement to the skin and is great for reducing the signs of ageing and improving skin texture and tone. You will see the results with just one peel, but maximum benefits can be achieved with a series of three to four peels. We recommend that you do not use any products containing retinol for one week prior to this treatment. The treatment will take 30 minutes.
Zo Stimulator Peel with Mask
Add a mask for your specific skin type/condition for an extra special treat.
Zo Three Step Peel
The ZO 3-Step Peel is a multifunctional epidermal peel designed to provide longer lasting treatment benefits. It evens skin texture for softer, smoother, tighter looking skin. It is an ideal treatment for improving acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores and dullness. It supports barrier function and improves skins ability to repair and renew itself. The Zo 3-Step Peel is suitable for any skin type, but it’s important to have well hydrated, healthy skin before the peel. We can advise on you on pre-conditioning your skin prior to your peel at your consultation. We would expect peeling and redness after this treatment to last for 2-5 days.
AlumierMD offers light to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. Repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results avoid side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.
Advanced skin care products for every day skin care maintenance to skin problems such as acne and pigmentation
At The Face we are proud to be registered and qualified to prescribe ZO Skin Health and ZO Medical skin solutions for our clients.
What is ZO Skin Care?
Zo Skin Health Inc is a highly innovative and progressive health and therapeutic skin care company founded by Dr Zein Obagi.
How Does it Work?
When over the counter products are applied to the outer surface of the human body, they do not pass through the dermal-epidermal junction of the skin barrier. Zo products contain highly active ingredients that pass through the epidermis and work effectively deep within the dermis. Over the counter products typically address the skin surface and symptoms without improving cellular function or overall skin condition. ZO products are based on highly active ingredients that improve the function of the skin as well as being advantageous in preventing premature ageing.
What Can Be Treated?
Every Day Skin Care Maintenance
Ageing (Fine Lines & Wrinkles)
Sun Damage & Age Spots
Zo Medical Consultations
Zo Skin Health believes in the philosophy of turning skin inside out rather than quick fixes. All our staff at The Face are ZO trained to advise on every day skin care maintenance using the ZO Skin Health products. Zo Medical products can only be prescribed by aesthetic doctors due to their powerful active ingredients. All our clients will receive a tailor-made skin care regime, so if you are interested or would would like to book a consultation please contact us.
Facial Aesthetics and Skin Care is not just for women. Find out more about our popular treatments for men.
Facial Aesthetic Treatments are becoming increasingly popular amongst men……you just wouldn’t know because it’s one of the best kept secrets! At The Face, you will be visiting a clinical environment where our priority is to make sure you feel comfortable with the treatments we recommend for you and discretion is guaranteed.
What are the areas most commonly treated in men?
Men are commonly concerned with frown and forehead lines, double chins/undefined jawlines and facial redness or scarring. However, their main concern is keeping a masculine look, or perhaps more definition to achieve a chiselled look.
Are the treatments the same as for women?
No! Although the treatments and products used are the same, men have stronger muscles and tend to have thicker skin, so it is important to receive treatment from a professional who understands the difference between treating men and women.
Which treatments would be right for me?
Your individual treatment options will be discussed with you at your free consultation, with no obligation, but detailed below are our popular treatments for men.
