A Spotlight On Alumier Treatments

Photo+2016-09-27%2C+1+30+17+PM.jpg

I’ve really been looking forward to writing about the Alumier treatment range for quite some time now as I am seeing fantastic results with my clients who are using either facials or peel treatments as well as a detailed home care regimen.  The biggest success story of this brand is that has been developed with over 100 years of combined skin care experience by a team of PHD Biochemists, Physicians and Skin Care Experts, resulting in science backed, luxurious formulations that get brilliant results.

Every Alumier product or treatment has been developed to suit a particular skin profile. Whether that is dry, normal, combination or oily skin as well as a number of skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, sensitive or hyper-pigmented skin. When you visit me for an Alumier treatment I will carry out a skin profile and identify the most appropriate treatment for you.  What’s more, when you use Alumier products or treatments you can rest assured that they are free of parabens, sulphates, petrolatum and dyes.

What are Alumier Peels?

 Alumier Peels are a chemical peel and they are used to treat a variety of skin conditions.  They work by removing cellular debris from the skin and in turn helps to increase cell turnover so new skin can be generated.  This process also helps to combat acne by unclogging blocked pores and calming down any redness or irritation.  The Alumier Peels are classed as light peels so you don’t need to worry about the products being too intense or abrasive.  I work very closely with my clients to identify the most suitable and beneficial peel from the range to suit skin types and conditions. Furthermore, throughout the treatment everything is carried out slowly and methodically to check and monitor for any signs of sensitivity.  At the end of the peel, a soothing serum is applied to create a radiant, more luminous skin.

At the end of the Alumier peel I will supply you with one of their fantastic post procedure kits, which includes a soothing recovery balm.  It is advisable to stay out of the sun after a peel, which is why Autumn and Winter are the perfect months to have them carried out!

As with most of my treatments, I do recommend that a course is booked to optimise the results on your skin.  Peels are also great alternated with a monthly facial, like the Hydrafacial offer from my salon in Thame.

Alumier Luxury Facials

The Alumier Luxury Facial is a unique facial, which combines deep relaxation together with high performing active ingredients for optimum results to target any skin concerns.  This facial is fully customised to suit your skin type and condition including dryness, oily or acne prone skin etc.  This fabulous treatment from Alumier includes a facial massage, lymphatic drainage and pressure point massage.  All of this helps to release toxins and soothe the skin, whilst at the time relaxing the entire body and mind.  You will leave feeling radiant, refreshed and balanced!

As with all my treatments at the Skin Society, I always recommend trying as much as possible to book a course of Alumier peels or facials so your skin receives the best results possible!  You can also save on the cost of a treatment by booking one of my packages.  Feel free to email on info@skinsociety.co.uk if you have any questions or fill out an online enquiry form and I will contact you back.

THE MULTIPLE BENEFITS OF ELECTROLYSIS

ELECTROLYSIS SKIN SOCIETY

This month I really wanted to take the opportunity to write about my new electrolysis treatments now available at the Skin Society.  If you haven’t heard of electrolysis before it has actually been around for some time now, however it is an excellent treatment for a variety of skin related conditions and hair removal.  Here at the Skin Society, I offer two different treatments; Electrolysis and Advanced Electrolysis.  I will explore the differences between the two treatments within this blog.

What is Electrolysis at the Skin Society used for?

My standard electrolysis treatment is fantastic for hair removal purposes.  Whilst waxing and shaving are the most popular ways of removing unwanted hair, they do not actually remove hair permanently and it will always continue to grow back within days or weeks.  Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method of hair removal on the market that gives permanent results! 

Why does electrolysis provide better permanent hair removal results than laser?

Laser hair removal targets the pigment found in hair follicles where as electrolysis targets the actual hair follicle itself. With laser hair removal it will never be fully permanent and maintenance sessions may be required proving costly to some clients.  As electrolysis destroys the hair follicle it is a brilliant treatment for all hair and skin types so will work with any customer.  Laser on the other hand has better results on fairer skin types with dark hair so may not be suitable for everyone.  From a cost perspective electrolysis is a much more cost affective way of removing hair vs. laser hair removal.

How many sessions of electrolysis will I need to be hair free?

Electrolysis is a progressive treatment so may require a few sessions for me to treat a certain area.  As with all of my treatments at the Skin Society, I always recommend taking me up on my free consultation so we can discuss the most appropriate number of treatments to get the best results and how long this will take.

What is Advanced Electrolysis used for then?

Advanced electrolysis at the Skin Society is different to my normal electrolysis procedure – it uses a small amount of electricity to cauterize the skin. It is most typically used to treat a number of skin conditions such as the following:

Vascular blemishes otherwise known as thread veins, spider veins and blood spots.  

All of these conditions may be from the result of sun and UV damage, ageing, pregnancy and hormonal influences, lifestyle or hereditary reason or simply just due to physical trauma in a certain area.

Skin Tags

Skin tags can range in size from a small speck of sand through to the size of a pea and larger.  They are very common and are growths of epidermal tissues where skin has experienced some friction.  They are most typically found on the next, under the arms, under the breast or in the groin area.

Milia

Milia are hard white bumps, which lie just underneath the top surface of the skin. Their exact cause has never been known but they can often be related to a diet, which may be high in cholesterol, dehydrated skin, too much vitamin C or the use of too rich or acidic products on the skin.

What is the advanced electrolysis procedure like?

The actual treatment itself is very simple and quick to administer.  In fact it normally takes no longer than thirty minutes to carry out.  Before we carry out any procedure I will need to carry out a consultation with you.  It really is an impressive treatment with instant results that are life lasting!

Where can I find out more information and pricing on the electrolysis treatments at the Skin Society?

All my pricing is found on either my Electrolysis page for hair removal or my Advanced Electrolysis page for blemish and tag removals.  Again I can offer better rates when a package is booked (more relevant for electrolysis as a hair removal option) so please do enquire with your requirements or pop into the salon for your free consultation.

To book your electrolysis treatment feel free to call me on 07931 480 307 or email at info@skinsociety.co.uk

 


EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HYDRAFACIAL

HF_Treatment_Photo-0016 copy lo res.jpg

HydraFacial – what makes this treatment special?

I have been working with HydraFacial for quite some time now, initially when I worked in Belgravia, London and now from my salon (Skin Society) in Thame.  In fact it is one of my best selling treatments, with my clients regularly feeding back how great their skin looks and feels after just one treatment! But what is it about the HydraFacial treatment that makes it so special?  Favoured by many celebrities, this unique facial uses advanced, patented vortex technology in order to deeply cleanse, extract and exfoliate the skin.  As the name would suggest, HydraFacial is fantastic at re-hydrating the skin and keeping it in optimum health as de-hydrated skin quite rapidly leads to premature aging.  During the treatment, the Hydrafacial uses a mixture of key botanical ingredients containing nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, horse chestnut seed extract, red algae extract, copper, zinc and magnesium peptides to protect and build collagen levels back into the skin. The antioxidants contained in the HydraFacial prevent damage from sun pollution and stress; subsequently slowing down the ageing process.

What types of skin is the HydraFacial good at treating?

The greatest appeal of the HydraFacial and the reason why it is so popular is that it works wonders at treating many different types of skin conditions. In short, Hydrafacial is pretty much the go to facial for everyone! If you experience any of the following, then I would really recommend trying this treatment:

·     Dry, dull skin

·     Mild acne or oily and congested skin

·     Enlarged pores

·     Fine lines and wrinkles

·     Brown Spots

What are the key stages to the HydraFacial treatment?

There are six key stages that the HydraFacial moves through:

 1.   Detox

The Hydrafacial tool uses a specially formulated lymphatic draining technique, which helps to promote circulation and remove toxins from the skin.

2.   Cleanse & Exfoliate

Dead skin cells and any impurities are lifted from the skin for an ultra deep clean.

3.   Use of a brightening agent

A very gentle glycolic and salicylic solution is added to the skin in order to break down debris and dirt from the pores, leaving a brightening result on the skin.

4.   Extraction

Another formulation is then used, which contains honey extract and salicylic acid to extract blackheads and other stubborn impurities.

5.    Hydration

One of the final steps in the process is to add extra moisture and hydration back into the skin, so a combination of hyaluronic acid, peptides and antioxidants are pumped into the skin.

6.    Rejuvenation

I use LED light therapy to stimulate collagen.  At the same time it is brilliant at reducing redness and any inflammation.  The end result is glowing skin!

Will my skin really improve with a HydraFacial?

Yes! You will notice quite a considerable difference from just one treatment, in particular a youthful dewy complexion and a healthy glow.  If you choose the Skin Society for your HydraFacial treatment and book a monthly course, I am able to offer a discount on packages.  With this package you will also benefit from a session under my LED Dermalux machine (worth £45). Dermalux is one of the most superior brands to work with in this field and it helps to reduce ageing, pigmentation, and inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.Combining the two treatments together produces fantastic results. 

If you are still unsure, then take a look at the before and after pictures from HydraFacial customers to really see the difference:

How can I find out more about the HydraFacial at the Skin Society?

If you are local and live in or around Thame, then why not pop into my salon or book a free skin consultation? I can show you how the HydraFacial works and we can discuss whether your skin would benefit from a course of treatments. Also keep an eye out on this page for my special HydraFacial events, which allow you to trial an express 30 minute treatment if you need extra reassurance.
