For the Face
The list that follows is only a sample of the numerous different Facial Treatments that are now available; please ask our Therapist for a private consultation, as to which facial treatments are best for you. Most come within the Amber Skin Reset programme. You may wish to look at that part of the Website.
For our Facials we specialise in using both the Environ Skincare Range and Jane Iredale Mineral Make-up Cosmetics, because we consider them as “one of the best” for Professional Salon Treatments. Amber Health & Beauty has been recommending and using them for over 15 years. They (The iiAA – http://www.iiaa.eu/ ) are recognised Industry Leaders in their field.
Environ Facial Treatments
Our range of Facial treatments include: Active Vitamin Treatment (3 areas) about 1 hour or our Advanced Active Vitamin Treatment (10 areas) 1.5 hours. Packed with nourishing, anti-ageing ingredients, the Active Vitamin Treatment will leave your skin looking radiant and dewy. The freshest, most active forms of Vitamin A, C and Anti-Oxidants are driven deep into the lower layers of the skin using sound waves and small electrical pulses. This scientific approach stimulates Collagen to soften lines and improve elasticity, increase hydration and boost radiance. The Active Vitamin Treatment is suitable for all skin types and is particularly effective at addressing sun-damage, pigmentation, premature ageing, dryness, uneven skin tone and scarring with measurable differences after just one session. All treatments do not require the injection of Botox or Dermal Fillers, although these treatments can be an advantage, if used correctly. Perhaps alternatives should be considered first.
The Frown Treatment – approximate duration 45 minutes
This highly effective treatment uses a special penta-peptide serum to target frown lines and achieve dramatic results. The unique combination of active ingredients is driven deep into the skin to soften lines and reduce muscle tension in the forehead helping to prevent new lines forming. The treatment targets the same chemical complexes as injectables without the associated risks.
Hydra-Boost Treatment – approx. 1 hour
The perfect antidote to dry, lacklustre skin, this intensive treatment deeply hydrates while plumping and firming the skin. Based on Hyaluronic Acid, which holds 1000 times its own weight in water, it helps to reduce fine lines caused by dehydration and increase the plumpness of the dermis, resulting in moisturised, glowing skin.
Body Sculpt Treatment – approx. 1 hour
This effective treatment is a great way to help smooth stubborn cellulite while firming and tightening the skin. The active ingredients in Environs Body Profile Gel are driven deep into the lower layers to assist in the reduction of the ‘orange peel effect’ on upper thighs and buttocks leaving skin smooth and hydrated.
Cool Peel Treatment – approx. 1 hour
This is taught in Professional Skincare Stage 2 training which includes our Senior Therapist. This revolutionary approach to peeling achieves incredible results without damaging the skin. Low strength Lactic Acid is used to reduce the skin’s Ph level and triggers the release of growth factors, which creates tighter, smoother skin. It destroys bacteria, boosts hydration and removes the build-up of dead skin cells, helping to decongest the surface and smooth its texture. The Cool Peel is ideal for Clients with lines and wrinkles, rough or problem skin, sun damage and Rosacea.
Collagen Stimulation Therapy (CST) – It’s New, it’s here, and gives excellent results
This is an advanced, cutting edge treatment, available to very few in Plymouth, which harnesses your body’s natural powers of healing to tighten skin and achieve incredible results, without invasive surgery. The body responds to CST in the same way it would react to an injury. The small amount of bleeding caused during treatment releases powerful growth factors which are part of a natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. It is especially effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing as well as sun damage, scarring, slackened skin, stretch marks (it is becoming recognised that CST is the way forward for Stretch Marks Reduction), uneven skin tone and dilated blood vessels. Collagen Stimulation Therapy can be done on all areas of the face and body and is suitable for all skin types. CST induction is also known as Skin Needling. It sounds really painful, although in fact it is not, as the Skin is fully anaesthetised.
During this painless revolutionary procedure, our skincare professional will apply topical anaesthetic and will use a small roller instrument containing tiny needles to create thousands of microscopic channels in the lower levels of your skin. This causes a minimal amount of bleeding that stops within minutes. After the treatment our practitioner will cleanse your skin and apply nourishing vitamins A and C. Each Roller Unit is dedicated solely to you, it is why the first treatment is considered expensive, because in practice you are buying this piece of equipment. We are looking at Skin Needling Pens as a way of reducing cost and improving H&S concerns.
