You can imagine how excited I was to get an opportunity to experience first-hand a Skin Design London VIP personalised Facial
Skin Wellbeing Facelift VIP personalised Face Treatment
The Skin Design London clinic treatments are a residency at John Bell & Croyden. I was greeted by a friendly clinical aesthetician who invited me to lay on a beauty bed which was both warm and welcoming. The day before the aesthetician requested that I complete a questionnaire and before the treatment commenced, we discussed my immediate concerns, hopes and desires for flawless skin.
The aesthetician decided that she would create a custom facial to assist with my dehydrated skin, the texture of my skin, congestion and help deliver a glow to aid pigmentation.
First, the aesthetician personalised a treatment using a cocktail of Skin Design London Professional Peels. The cocktail of peels refreshes and revitalises the skin and preps it for part two.
Second: The Glow Pen, a patented technology to introduce the C V H A R, serum actives. Electroporation Needle. rejuvenates the skin using microneedles stimulating the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) without any scarring and boosting the natural skin healing process and the collagen rearranging process deep into the layers maximizing the efficacy and results. The cocktails of peptides, amino acids, antioxidants delivered fresh oxygen and vibrancy to my skin.
Third: The finale, designed to tighten, sculpt, and lift. The Face Machine is exclusive to Skin Design London infused with radio frequency, face cupping/suction, laser, and light therapy. This facelift treatment stimulates fibroblast and remodels the skin without downtime. Energising and illuminating the skin. Let your skin journey begin! The result, my skin was left with a heavenly glow.
