Party season is nearing, and it may be hard to know what products and treatments would best suit your needs! We have collated some popular treatments that are both perfect for the Christmas and New years glow up, and will also strengthen your skin for the upcoming summer months.
The Carbon Laser Peel
The carbon laser peel is perfect for the pre-party season glow up. Also known as the ‘Hollywood Facial’ or the ‘China Doll Facial’, the treatment first gained popularity in Korea in the early 2000s. It has since migrated all over the world, with several renowned salons and skin clinics in Australia offering the illuminating treatment.
Many celebrities have flocked to the facial because of the glowing after effects experienced in the wake of just one treatment. The Carbon Laser Peel in non-invasive, gentle, and uses a Q-Switched Nd-Yag Laser paired with a medical-grade carbon serum.
The process is simple: a layer of carbon is applied on the entire face and allowed to dry. The carbon peel mask then binds to the skin and penetrates deep into its fine lines and pores, The Q-Switched Nd-Yag is then used to heat the face and cause implosions of the carbon particles as the laser light is absorbed by the carbon paste on the epidermis. This kills bacteria, stimulates collagen production, and tightens pores. This treatment is ideal for those in the lead up to party season, or for clients who have booked in last minute appointments.
The best part is that one treatment alone is enough to notice positive effects, but like many technology-led facials, the more you have the better! The optimum timeline for treatments is a package of 6-10, at least one week apart or on a monthly basis.
The HydraFacial is another skin lover’s favourite. It is a resurfacing facial treatment that is non-invasive, water and active serum based, and combines pressurised water and oxygen to gently exfoliate the top layers of the skin, removing dead skin cells and impurities. The HydraFacial is, eponymously, extremely hydrating and will provide you with instant rejuvenation and replenishment.
The concept behind the lauded treatment system is to enrich you with healthy, glowy skin instantly. Within a 30-minute window, skin is cleansed, pores extracted, skin resurfaced and hydration is infused. The treatment looks like this: using a patented vortex technology, the handheld tool gently yet effectively cleans the skin. A vacuum suction is used to rid pores of gunk and junk, before layering the skin with a peel. The final step involves the application of a booster – a customisable solution elected based on your individual skin needs.
You can also upgrade your treatment with a hydrating eye or nourishing lip ‘Perk’. For one of the fastest treatments we have it is also one of the most impactful. With the use of a tool is less ‘romantic’ than the soothing hands of a therapist, it is hard to deny the way the skin is seemingly brought to life post treatment, made plump, even and luminous.
The HydraFacial is the ideal add on, that can be combined with other treatments like laser, can be offered as a means through which to bring the skin back to an optimised condition.
The system can be completely personalised depending on the result you may be after on one day versus the next; even the degree of suction can be modified! And if the treatment itself doesn’t persuade, the remnants of dirt, sebum and oils found in the ‘gunky jar’ will!
