Good for: revitalising and balancing dull skin
About: The techniques used in this are designed to help stimulate collagen and help minimise scarring and is a great anti-pollution treatment that is great for anyone living in the city. Each treatment is tailored to your needs and include a tension relieving deep tissue massage (yes – on your face!) which helps detoxify the skin, too. An enzymatic peel to remove dead skin cells and minimise inflammation was followed by light lymphatic drainage, a cooling algae mask and to end the oxygen blast which helps to push products deeper into the skin and again is anti-inflammatory and bacterial.
Good for: a skin reset
About: each facial is tailored to your personal needs and so begins with a face-mapping where the facialist looks at your skin and deduces what issues she can tackle today. Dermalogica have a great range of machines to use, too, so nothing is off limits.
Good for: extractions
About: using their world famous technique of dry heat to gently open pores (rather than steam which doesn’t last as long) to ready yourself for some serious extractions. Followed by an antioxidant and galvanic treatment to stimulate, brighten and calm.
My experience: 45 minutes just on extractions? Oh yes. And I amazingly wasn’t even red after. The extractions were extremely comfortable too (sadly, this isn’t always the case) and my skin looked glowing and clear afterwards.
