When was the last time you took a selfie and didn’t add some sort of filter? Wanting a smoother face, glowing skin or Kylie Jenner’s jawline? …the possibilities are endless! You can look like you’re ready for a night on the town when in reality you’ve not got an ounce of makeup on, you’re wrapped up in PJs and can’t remember the last time you washed your hair!
So why do we use them!? The bottom line is who doesn’t want a smooth, glowing, plump face with zero wrinkles? Because I DO!!
As amazing as filters can make you feel, in the same second when the picture disappears and the filter is no longer active you’re left looking at yourself feeling worse than before and picking out flaws you didn’t even know you had! I remember in my early 20’s I didn’t even use moisturiser and now I’m dragging myself out of bed an hour earlier to layer on hundreds of creams, serums, retinols, vitamin C and lotions just to not look like I haven’t slept in a decade! Spending hours on the internet searching for something…ANYTHING to make me look 10 years younger, to find that hidden celebrity secret that has JLO still looking 25 at 50!
We are so readily eager to spend thousands of pounds on injecting Filler and Botox into our faces just to have it fade away a few months later but why don’t we invest more into our natural skin and improve…. ‘what cha mother gave ya’!? WELL, NOW YOU CAN!! And that’s where the IllumiFacial comes in….
IllumiFacial is the ‘next generation’ of highly successful ‘Photofacial’ treatments using a new and unique combination of specialist skincare together with our powerful medical-grade IPL technology. Treatment is perfect for anyone whose skin exhibits congestion, discolouration and visible signs of ageing or for anyone who simply wants to look #FilterFree!
The illumiFacial is made up of 4 steps;
The first step in achieving clear, healthy, radiant skin will involve a deep cleanse to remove all traces of impurities while protecting the upper barrier, leaving the skin silky smooth.
- Tri-Fruit Acid Peel
A unique 20% Tri-Fruit Acid Fruit Peel will be applied to your skin. This peel resurfaces skin texture, decongests pores, reduces fine lines, hyperpigmentation and blemishes. Key ingredients include; Glycolic Acid, Malic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Allantoin & Salicylic Acid.
- IPL Skin Rejuvenation
Post fruit peel, your skin will be at its optimum condition for the application of the award-winning Lynton Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. This works by both stimulating collagen and targeting any discolouration on your skin, e.g. freckles, pigmentation, vascular breakouts, general redness. In most cases, the results are instant, providing you with dramatically clearer, firmer skin.
- Hydrate & Protect
To help maximise the results of your illumiFacial treatment, a trio of specialist serums will be applied to your skin post-IPL, including our activated Stem Cell Serum which is micro-formulated for deep penetration to increase proliferation of dermal fibroblasts for maximum collagen and elastin production.
What Should I Expect After IllumiFacial®?
You may experience a superficial tingling feeling on the skin and you may see a darkening of pigment spots before they flake away – this means the treatment has worked perfectly in providing you with a more even, flawless skin tone. As well as clearer, healthier skin, you will also experience an ongoing improvement to the firmness and plumpness of your skin in the following months post-treatment as new collagen is stimulated deep within the skin tissue.
How does the IPL Skin Rejuvenation work?
Precisely controlled short pulses of light are released that target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, this light results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The skin will feel tighter and the appearance of scarring will be reduced.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For best results, we recommend 2-4 treatments 4-6 weeks apart depending on your skin concerns; however, after just one treatment you will see significant improvements in skin tone and overall complexion.
So, in a nutshell….
IllumiFacial is the ultimate all in one facial that targets everything! Ageing, acne scarring, pigmentation, red veins and just dull or tired-looking skin for all ages!
