Deep Clean

More often than not, if skin is not well cleaned from the daily rigour of makeup, it’s easy for pores to get clogged and congested, which then leads to breakouts. A deep cleansing facial such as Deep Deep Clean combines microdermabrasion with a fruit acid wash plus 5-10 minutes of ultrasonic deep pore purging to keep breakouts at bay. In addition, you can choose from whitening wraps, to oil control wraps to hyaluronic acid wraps  for your specific skin’s needs.

A well cleaned face sets the foundation for other skincare products to penetrate and do the work it’s supposed to for your skin.

If your concern is stressed, dehydrated and overworked skin, a hydro facial such as Aquadermabrasion might just be what the doctor orders for you. This is a skin-specific peel that primes skin while vitamin enriched saline is delivered to detox, prime and prep your complexion. Revel in a gorgeous, glow from your skin after the facial. It’s (literally) a breath of fresh air; one your skin is sure to thank you for.

Chemical peels from SW1


Chemical peels are a great way to give your skin a quick makeover. Using naturally occurring fruit acids, peels can help to improve and smoothen the texture of your skin. By removing the top layer via a peel, you allow healthy new skin cells to come through. Result: glowing, radiant skin with a smoother texture.

You will notice an improvement in facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Even acne will be better controlled with acne scars softening.

This is a relatively quick treatment which can be done over lunch without any significant downtime, although some flaking is expected 2-3 days after the treatment.
