Hollywood skin in just 45 minutes!

3rd December 2015

Everyone always wants to know the secret to celebrity skin - what have they had done? Have they had a little nip and tuck? What products do they use? That's why we want our clients to try HydraFacial because it really is the secret to Hollywood skin - in just 45 minutes! And now the festive season is hotting up, there's no better time to put your best face forward... 

What happens in a Hydrafacial?

There are few different types of HydraFacial but our favourite is HydraTite which features an element of radiofrequency to help tighten the skin as well as make it glow. Best results are seen with a course of six (taken weekly or fortnightly, depending on skin's concerns) but the skin-glowing results will be seen immediately after each session. 

This facial is split into several parts, each working its own magic:

- Lympatic drainage with a mechanical suction that lightly stimulates the lypmh nodes for increased circulation.

- Double cleanse involving cleansing wash followed by exfoliating wand which takes off excess dead skin cells (with a type of mechanical dermabrasion) while simultaeneously delivering a serum that softens dead skin layer making it easier for the wand to remove.

- Very mild glycolic and salacylic peel to very lightly exfoliate the surface of the skin - you will hardly feel a thing. This is also what gives skin its brighteness and glow - the A-list touch!  

- Mechanical extraction to remove impurities and blocked pores; this is more effective than manual extraction and uses a salcylic and honey serum to improve the process. 

- Medik8 mask - we will apply one specific for your skin needs and concern at the time whether, you have oily, breakout, or dehydrated skin.

- Accent radio frequency - a hand held device is massaged over areas of most concern for skin tightening and extra glow. We will do 5 minutes on each area and heat skin up enough to cause very minor trauma under the skin which helps to boost collagen cells for tighter skin, but not too much to cause any pain. It will just feel like a very warm massage.  

- Serum application - hydrating serum with vitamins, peptides, and Hyaluronic Acid for a really hydrated glow. 

We also have this two minute video created by HydraFacial which illustrates the facial further:

The results are truly worthy of a red carpet appearance which is why it's our must-have facial for any special occasion, not just for Christmas!

Thank you for working your magic and making me look years younger! Also a big thank you to your team for all their help and support. I love my new face!

Karolina is always a joy to work with - kind, considerate and very professional and creating an aura of trust. She makes the Ulthera treatment painless and that's not an easy task!

I have my Botox with Karolina. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and advises me on what would look good and not so good on my face. She is a person I can trust!

"I was very happy with my treatment experience. Mr Karidis , staff and facilities were excellent. I am very pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Mr Karidis and his clinic."

"I am only three days into the recovery of my gynecomastia procedure, and already it has changed my life. I travelled from Cardiff to London to have this procedure and it was by far cheaper than having it done in my local area. Furthermore, Karidis' reputation exceeds expectations. I look forward to my follow up consultation so Karidis can see how he has changed my life. Communication from Karidis and his team - 5 star Professionalism - 5 star Results - 5 star."

For my first Velashape III treatment, Maxine made me feel really comfortable and explained exactly how the treatment would go and any after-effects I might have (I have had none). The process was smooth and painless and actually kind of relaxing. Most importantly, I can already see a MAJOR difference on the cellulite on my legs and butt. I am seriously impressed!

"My entire experience for an abdominoplasty and breast augmentation operation was faultless from a professional and caring team. I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough from the consultation, in establishing what I wanted, to his skilled work. I am absolutely delighted with the results."

"A seven week recovery journey with a couple of little detours, but navigated with care by Mr Karidis, Suzi & Martina. Explanations, reassurance & advice given from first consultation, day of operation, day one post op. and at all subsequent clinic visits, along with a good dose of friendly chit chat & laughter, (Always a good medicine!). Thank you Mr Karidis & team. No regrets here."

Brilliant consultation... I was very impressed with my consultation with Mr Karidis. Mr Karidis made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions.

Outstanding in every way This is my second breast augmentation with Mr Karidis - my first experience was amazing as were the results! Second time around and once again my experience was faultless. The whole team are amazing from front of desk and Rose, to the lovely nurses pre and post-op! The after care given, which is also important, is second to none and I cannot recommend Mr Karidis enough. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and giving me back my confidence!
