FAQ

  • am I suitable for illumiFacial®?

    This treatment is perfect for anyone whose skin exhibits congestion, discolouration and visible signs of ageing, however, a full consultation is carried out prior to treatment to ascertain your suitability and individual treatment needs. A full treatment plan will then be tailored to treat your specific concerns, all aiming to improve the appearance, feel and health of your skin.

  • how does the treatment work?

    The first step in achieving clear, healthy, radiant skin will involve a deep cleanse, with your illumiFacial® practitioner using a specialist formulation to remove any impurities. Following a deep cleanse, a unique Tri-Fruit Acid Lynton Fruit Peel will be applied to your skin, for anywhere between 3-10 minutes. This peel resurfaces skin texture and decongests pores, priming the skin ready for stage 3 of illumiFacial®. Post fruit peel, your skin will be at its optimum condition for the application of the award-winning Dynamic Reflex treatment. This works by both stimulating collagen and targeting any discolouration on your skin, e.g. freckles, pigmentation, vascular breakouts, general redness. In most cases, the results are instant, providing you with dramatically clearer, firmer skin. To help maximise the results of your illumiFacial® treatment, a trio of specialist serums will be applied to your skin post-IPL, helping soothe, regenerate and protect your skin.

  • what should I expect after illumiFacial®?

    You may experience a superficial tingling feeling on the skin and you may see a darkening of pigment spots before they flake away – this means that the treatment has worked perfectly in providing you with a more even, flawless skin tone. As well as clearer, healthier skin, you will also experience an ongoing improvement to the firmness and plumpness of your skin in the following months post-treatment, as new collagen is stimulated deep within the skin tissue.

     

  • how does the treatment feel?

    illumiFacial® is a very quick, comfortable treatment which is designed to provide you with ‘optimum skin health.’ Some people will feel a slight tingling sensation when the fruit peel is first applied, but it very quickly subsides. The IPL aspect of this treatment can sometimes be mildly uncomfortable – most people describe the discomfort as feeling like a ‘quick pinprick,’ and ‘warm feeling,’ which is very tolerable.

  • are there any side effects?

    The illumiFacial® is a completely non-invasive treatment, using safe, medical-grade equipment to minimise side effects. Your skin may be red and slightly swollen immediately after treatment, but this will subside very quickly. You may also have some patches of dry skin and in very rare cases, a small blister can form with some temporary lightening of darkening of the skin. However, most people experience absolutely no side effects and any reactions usually disappear within a few hours, leaving the skin feeling and looking radiant.

  • is there any down time?

    There is no downtime as such, indeed it is possible to have this treatment in a lunch break and return straight back to work. The skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after the IPL treatment but this usually subsides quickly.

    A small blister may form and there can be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots, before these eventually flake off over a period of anywhere from 1-2 days up to 1-2 weeks.

    If you experience swelling it is usually worse on days one and two following treatment. If swelling occurs following treatment to the facial area, sleeping with your head on raised pillows will minimise its appearance. Ice packs will also help to reduce the swelling.

    If your skin is particularly sensitive and prone to histamine reactions, you may also wish to consider taking an antihistamine medication, either once symptoms develop or prophylactically if you are expecting the treated area to swell.
