Facials

               

As with our Massage, Your Facial will be based on your skin’s individual requirements and needs. You will go through an extensive consultation in order to assess those personal needs before embarking on your treatment. Please allow an extra 15minutes for consultation and some time to slowly relax before returning life again. It is a shame to go through a lovely treatment and then rush back to our normal busyness.

We have added Microdermabrasion, Microneedling and Chemical peels to our range. These facials are very specific and target based. It is essential that you come and visit your therapist and get all the information, advice and consultation processes done before any of these treatments can be carried out.

Nimue AHA – structural and functional improvement

Epidermis

  • Exfoliation action removes excess dead stratum corneum cells
  • The thickened stratum corneum returns to normal thickness, normalises within 8 weeks and maintain the thickness with continued use of AHA complex.
  • Skin looks and feels smoother as cells are overlapping each other.
  • 25% increase in thickness of living epidermis within 8 weeks, as a result of stimulation of cells production in the basal layer.
  • Improvement in ridge pattern of the epidermis dermal junction.

Dermis

  • The fibroblasts are indirectly stimulated to synthesise collagen – by stimulation of an essential amino acid in the fibroblasts that is a precursor to the formation of collagen.
  • Improvement in in the function of elastic fibres resulting in more elastic skin with less wrinkles.
  • Approximately 30% increase in thickness of dermis within 28 weeks.
  • Increase deposition of Glicosaminoglycans, by increasing the secretion of natural moisturising factors allowing the skin to retain more waterHyperpigmented skinA hyperpigmented skin can be classified as a skin that presents with uneven skin colour and the development is influenced by internal and external factors, one of the most harmful being UV radiation exposure. This result is an overproduction of melanin as a defence mechanism.Nimue AHA – structural and functional improvement

    Epidermis

    • Dormant melanocyte cells are reactivated resulting in more even skin colouring.
    • Accelerate cell proliferation process assists in the upwards migration of keratinocytes and melanin granules.
    • The removal of excess pigment from the skin.
    • Less melanin clumping.
    • Improved tolerance to UV radiation and chemical exposure as a result of thicker, healthier skin.
