Julia is a leading holistic skin therapist who combines high technology treatments and skincare with an in depth knowledge of nutrition and natural therapies. Julia offers tailor made treatments and is very choosy about the products she recommends for both treatments and at home for her clients.
After an introductory discussion about my skin and sensitivities, I was soon relaxing under a blanket preparing for the facial. A pre cleanse and massage was refreshing and relaxing. I didn't much like the professional Clarisonic as combined with steam it stung a little on my sensitive skin. I am such a wimp when it comes to scrubbing my face, I am a lover not a fighter and prefer peaceful resolution! Although not painful, I didn't find it a pleasant sensation.
I didn't really know what to expect from Hollywood's best kept secret, Madonna being a top fan of this treatment. I can honestly see why she loves it as I did too and I will go on to explain.
Julia takes an airbrush with a high pressure compressor attached. The hyperbaric O2 (higher concentration of oxygen) is used to carry the O2 rejuvenating serum deep in to the skin. Deeper than you can go with conventional non invasive (needle) treatments. The serum contains plenty of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants that are great for plumping, smoothing and nourishment.
After the treatment, which is stimulating but comfortable as the air tickles my nose, my skin felt soft and radiant. I can say that I was more wrinkle free than I have been in a decade. I noted in particular that around the eyes and between my eye brows, I was line free. All wrinkles were reduced and flattened out.
This is not a permanent effect alas, this treatment only lasts up to 7 days at most. I would thoroughly recommend it for a pre wedding or special occasion treatment if you have fine lines and want some radiance and plumping for your special day. If you have been unwell and have dehydrated or congested skin, which I had, then this is the perfect treatment for you. It is a little more expensive than a standard facial treatment but the effects last longer and are visibly impressive.
Thank you Julia for introducing me to this fantastic treatment, I am already scanning my diary for an excuse to come again.
