Treatments | Brightening
The Brightening facial is a customisable brightening treatment designed to help deep cleanse, hydrate and enliven the skin. This bespoke treatment is designed for those with no serious concerns, but whose skin needs a little brightening. It is perfect before a special occasion or as a skin maintenance treatment. This facial is the perfect answer for when the skin is overworked, tired and has sustained damage by the environment, stress and modern day lifestyles.
This facial aims to increase cell renewal whilst improving your skin’s tone, clarity and overall health. The elimination of impurities and excess oils as well as gentle exfoliation leaves the skin fresh and glowing. The use of high strength antioxidants helps to reinforce the skin’s natural defences against the environment to help prevent free radical damage, which leads to premature skin ageing.
Not only does this treatment improve the appearance of a dull complexion by brightening and hydrating, it also aids in the stimulation of collagen production to help tighten the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The skin is left looking more youthful with a radiant glow. The skin is left hydrated, protected, intensely revitalised and replenished. Totally recharged with pure radiance.
This is also a great facial for the boys, calming the skin and replacing lost moisture after regular shaving.

The Condition: Dull Skin
As we age, our skin loses its natural glow and begins to look tired and dull. This dullness in our complexion is caused by an accumulation of dead skin cells which diffuse the light. This makes it look flat and tired. Our skin looks radiant and luminous when it is smooth enough to reflect the light’s rays. As we age, skin cells turn over at a slower rate leading to this accumulation. Regular facial treatments and correctly prescribed skin care help to increase cell renewal leading to a brighter, younger looking skin.
The rate of cell renewal is affected by many factors, with ageing, genetics, environmental and lifestyle influences being the most common. Ageing is one of the main contributors and this is due to a reduced regeneration of new skin cells, causing a slower rate of cell turnover. Simultaneously, smoking, pollutants, lack of sleep and sun exposure all inhibit the body’s ability to produce new and healthy cells.
Impaired blood circulation is also a factor that leads to dull skin as the blood is designed to carry oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body. These nutrients are extremely important for a skin to function at its optimum, therefore if circulation is sluggish this reflects in a tired, dull looking complexion.

What does the treatment involve?
The Brightening Facial begins with a thorough skin consultation where emphasis is placed on helping you understand what is contributing to your dull complexion and how to treat it. Your treatment is then designed specifically for your skin type and skin concerns. Choosing from a host of cosmeceutical products, your brightening facial is designed exclusively for you. In addition to your symptoms, your skin type, and skin health will determine the approach that is taken when designing your treatment.
This treatment concentrates on deep cleansing and the removal of impurities and dead skin cells. It also stimulates cell renewal and enhance absorption of active ingredients within the facial. Special attention is placed on a detoxifying lymphatic drainage massage. This specialist massage helps to transport away toxins, reduce lymph fluid congestion and helps regenerate the damaged tissue. An added benefit is the increase in blood circulation which leads to better absorption of oxygen and nutrients, as well as a brighter, less puffy complexion. We then finish the treatment selecting the appropriate serums and flood the skin with 180 million nutrient particles of pure hyperbaric oxygen.
An intensive facial with instant results makes this the perfect facial for a glowing skin before a special occasion.
Long term results and skin maintenance are achieved by continued regular advanced clinical facials and accompanied by a preventative, corrective and protective homecare programme.
