The Plasma Lift/Fibroblast Treatment is NON-SURGICAL – NON-INVASIVE!
The Plasma Pen device is able to significantly tighten, lift, resurface, rejuvenate and regenerate any area of the skin.
The Plasma Pen forces the skin tissue to contract virtually immediately by thermally disturbing the skin as well as fibroblasts.
The micro trauma stimulates new collagen (neocollagenesis) and helps release and activate essential proteins and growth factors like cytokines and fibroblasts, which make more collagen than before it was disrupted.
New collagen continues to be formed over a period of 12 weeks following treatment.
How quickly will I see results and how long will they last?
Some initial superficial results can often be seen immediately and will continue to improve during the months following treatment. The skin will appear tighter and some lines will be diminished instantly. The collagen fibres will continue to rebuild and reproduce for 12 weeks following treatment, so you will continue to see the treatment area gradually improving. The effects can last up to 3 years and in some cases can be permanent. It is important to note that the Plasma Pen treatment will not stop the onset of further aging.
Once collagen is formed, the natural aging process of breaking down collagen will then take place. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors can contribute to collagen breakdown such as UV exposure, excessive alcohol consumption, poor diet and smoking. These are all contribution factors to further aging skin. Depending on the amount of sagging skin you may require more than one session.

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatment has become one of the most sought-after lifting treatments for face, neck & body without going under the knife.
HIFU can tighten and lift the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin tone, providing visible results that will last up to 3 years. HIFU has proven effective on the face, sagging jowls, chins and much more. Treatment time takes between 1 – 3 hours depending on the area we are treating. Plus with no downtime you can be back at your usual routine immediately after.
Most clients only need one treatment. However this may be based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some clients may benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
HIFU individually targets brow, jowl and neck lifting, as well as overall skin tightening, rejuvenation and deeper fat cells.
The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive treatments.
The SMAS layer is the same area tightened during conventional surgery, however, unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no downtime.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Laser hair removal is the most effective method of hair removal available that can be used almost anywhere on the face and body. Unlike other methods such as waxing and shaving laser hair removal gives long lasting results. The hair will become finer and softer meaning less visible and the growth will slow down more and more with each treatment.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal treatment uses brief pulses of light energy to damage hair follicles, preventing regrowth. This gives the most effective, longest lasting hair removal results available.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal uses light energy to permanently damage or destroy individual hair follicles. This treatment targets the roots beneath the surface of the skin using a medical grade laser to prevent regrowth.
The hair follicle must be targeted at a specific time during its growth cycle to prevent the hair from returning. As individual hairs could be in different parts of the hair growth cycle at any one time, you will need several treatment sessions to see long-lasting results. We usually recommend 6-8 appointments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Laser hair removal is suitable for men and women with all skin tones. It also works on your sensitive areas such as the face. Popular targets include facial hair, leg hair, underarm hair, back hair and chest hair.
Why choose laser hair removal?
Our laser hair removal treatment enables you to benefit from smooth skin, avoiding the in-grown hairs and irritation that can occur with shaving. Results are also more permanent than waxing, sugaring or hair removal creams/depilatory creams.
Can laser hair removal be used on any skin type?
Not all lasers are suitable for darker skin types due to the increased risk of hyperpigmentation and discolouration.
What skin type do you have? Find out your number on the Fitzpatrick scale below:
Type 1: always burns, never tans (pale, freckles).
Type 2: usually burns, minimal tanning.
Type 3: sometimes burns mildly, tans uniformly.
Type 4: burns minimally, always tans well (moderate brown).
Type 5: very rarely burns, tans very easily (dark brown).
Type 6: Never burns (deeply pigmented dark brown to darkest brown).
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
- Reduce hair, permanently:
- Laser hair removal offers a permanent reduction can achieve reduction of up to 90%. Any hair that does grow back will be finer, lighter and softer, with the additional benefit of smoother skin.
- No more ingrown hairs:
- Laser hair removal vastly reduces the need for shaving and waxing, so you can say goodbye to ingrown hairs, shaving rash and stubble.
- Save time and money:
- Invest in a course of laser hair removal and you may never have to wax or shave again – saving time and money in the long run.
- Improve skin tone and texture:
- Say goodbye to pigmentation and uneven skin left behind after constant shaving or waxing.

Non Surgical Brazilian Bum Lift & Breast Enchancement
Brazilian Bum Lift
You can have the perfect bum you've always wanted, with no pain, no surgery & no downtime.
Our revolutionary non-surgical Brazilian bum lift lifts your buttocks by up to 70% with instant results.
It improves buttock shape, firms & tones & treats cellulite, fatty deposits & loose, sagging skin.
The best technology to tighten and lift the buttocks and reduce cellulite in the area without resorting to the dangerous Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is high-power, deep-acting radio frequency. This is the technology we offer and in addition we combine it with high-power cavitation and electro mesotherapy for maximum results.
The non- invasive Brazilian Bum Lift: the most effective way to enhance your rear appeal, sculpt the curves of your derrière and erase cellulite using the latest non-surgical breakthrough in body contouring. Traditional buttock augmentation involves surgical redistribution of fatty tissue to create an aesthetically pleasing shape to a flat behind, an expensive procedure that carries a multitude of risks and a very long recovery period.
We use clinically proven technology to allows patients to benefit from a tighter, lifted and contoured behind, with improved firmness, toned and smooth skin and better contouring within four treatments. Our procedure has no downtime, is a fraction of the cost of a surgical procedure and is proven to be safe and effective. The combination of technologies melts the fat pockets that cause dimpled and lumpy skin, repositioning some of malleable fat for a more appealing buttock contour. Broken down fat is then deposited naturally through the body, via the lymphatic system.
This pioneering new technology has several effects: reducing loose skin, treating stretch marks and cellulite from the thighs and saddlebags, while simultaneously lifting and shaping the buttocks for the bum you have always wished for. The results offer a shapely silhouette.

Vitamin B12 Injections
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water soluble vitamin involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body. It is a cofactor in DNA synthesis, and in both fatty acid and amino acid metabolism.
It is particularly important in the normal functioning of the nervous system via its role in the synthesis of myelin, and in the maturation of developing red blood cells in the bone marrow.
Vitamin B12 has an extensive list of potential health benefits, including:
- Healthy red blood cells
- Nervous system
- Homocysteine levels and heart health
- Hair skin and nails
The most common signs of vitamin b12 deficiency include:
- Muscle weakness
- Unexplained weight loss
- Shortness of breath
- Vision problems
- Poor memory
- Bleeding gums and mouth sores
Vitamin C Injections
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient that keeps the body functioning.
Found in foods and dietary supplements, it aids in many biological functions, including the synthesis of collagen , the healing of wounds, and the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, meaning that it can neutralize free radicals that can damage cells at the genetic level. Vitamin C has been used historically to prevent or treat scurvy and other illnesses associated with vitamin C deficiency.
Today, it is widely touted as a natural defence against the common colds. Although vitamin C is considered to be an "immune booster," there is little evidence that taking it can actually prevent or treat an infection.
The one condition vitamin C can most definitely treat is vitamin C deficiency. According to research
from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 7.1% of the U.K. population can be classified as being vitamin C deficient. Those with
a severe dietary deficiency can develop scurvy, characterized by bruising, bleeding gums, weakness, fatigue, and rash.
The symptoms are as a result of vitamin C deficiencies
- Feeling fatigue
- Sore arms or legs
- Gum diseases
- Easy bleeding
- Roughness of the skin
- Poor wound healing
Hay Fever Injections (Kenalog-40)
What is Hay Fever
Hay fever (seasonal allergic rhinitis) is caused by an allergic reaction to pollen. It can trigger sneezing, a blocked or runny nose and itchy eyes. It is normal for it to appear at the same time each year.
Severe hay fever symptoms can ruin peoples’ summers and have a detrimental effect on quality of life. It may also prevent people from being able to work optimally.
The UK is particularly affected by pollen with a mixture of flowers and trees such as silver birch and rape seed most likely to worsen symptoms of hay fever.
It is estimated that there is 3 billion trees in the UK! Working out at nearly 50 trees per person. Allergic rhinitis is becoming more common. Many people with hay fever also have asthma and eczema.
These are called atopic conditions or atopy. You’re more likely to have atopic conditions if they run in your family.
- Blocked or runny nose (rhinorrhoea)
- Itchy eyes, nose, throat and roof of your mouth
- Red eyes, which water
- Postnasal drip (mucus dripping down your throat from the back of your nose)
this may make you cough
- Headaches, caused by a stuffy nose
- Hay Fever Injections (Kenalog – 40) is a steroid that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.
Clients cannot have any other injection for a month after the Kenalog-40 injection. Including;
dermal filler, anti wrinkle treatment, b12, vitamin C and vitamin B complex.
B Complex Injections
Researches and studies have proved that Vitamin B complex injections are more efficient than tablets, gels or liquids.
This is because the digestive system, stomach acids and enzymes attack the molecular structure of B vitamins when consumed in the form of tablets or gels. But in case of injections, neither acids nor enzymes are able to attack the vitamins.
This results in higher rate of absorption and retention of B vitamins with faster and effective results. Many countries use these injections as dietary supplements.
Vitamin B complex injection is used by many individuals for an immediate boost in energy and to aid in weight loss.
These injections are most useful for fatigue caused due to nerve damage, diabetes, sciatica, tinnitus, effects of stress, chronic disease, B12 deficiency and a number of other conditions.
Vitamin B is not actually a single vitamin but is a collection of 8 different vitamins that form the group of B vitamins.
These vitamins are all water soluble which means that they can be easily transported around the body.
The water soluble vitamin that is required for the proper metabolism of starch and sugar in order to provide energy to the body.
B1 l helps the heart and other muscles function properly.
B1 plays an essential role in metabolism by helping convert nutrients into energy.
B2 is mainly involved in energy metabolism and helps the thyroid function properly.
Vitamin B2 aids in weight loss by releasing the unused energy in the body and preventing unused energy from turning into fat.
Vitamin B2 is crucial for the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
B2 helps convert food into energy and also acts as an antioxidant.
B3 support healthy carbohydrate metabolism.
The water soluble vitamin Niacin is essential for the body to convert carbohydrates, fat and alcohol into energy.
Vitamin B3 aids in the normal maintenance of thyroid hormone production.
It helps maintain skin health and supports the normal function of the nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract.
Vitamin B4 (Choline)
B4 is an essential and vital nutrient for our health.
Vitamin B4 is also one of the water soluble vitamins that aids in weight loss.
This nutrient is a fat emulsifier that works with the nutrient inositol. Choline and inositol use the cholesterol and fats in the body to prevent weight gain and promote weight loss.
B5 (pantothenic acid):
Vitamin B5 plays an important role in weight loss.
Vitamin B5 is involved in energy production and helps to control fat metabolism.
Pantothenic acid is needed to metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, fats and alcohol as well as produce red blood cells and steroid hormones.
Vitamin B5 also aids in digestion and helps break down fat and carbohydrates, thus giving more energy and boosting one's metabolism, which also helps in weight loss.
B6 the water soluble vitamin plays an integral role in the metabolism of fats, particularly fatty acids which are unsaturated and help to supply fuel to cells, which are then able to burn energy.
Vitamin B6 helps with the regulation and production of the thyroid.
B6 is also required for protein and carbohydrate metabolism.
Vitamin B6 helps the pancreas produce enzymes that aid indigestion. Proper digestion will make one feel full longer, thus resulting in weight loss.
Vitamin B7 is needed for energy metabolism, fat synthesis, amino acid metabolism and glycogen synthesis.
Biotin improves blood sugar control.
People who exercise often have an increased need for biotin for several reasons: Increased metabolism resulting in the loss of this vitamin in urine or sweat, need for tissue repair and maintenance.
B7 is essential for carbohydrate and fat metabolism and regulates gene expression.
Fat Dissolvable Injections
Fat Dissolvable Injections
What is Aqualyx®?
Aqualyx® is a compound solution from the deoxycholate family that has been physically modified. By creating a slow-release sugar-based system, there are minimal side effects due to a reduction in its biological half-life.*
Developed by the late renowned aesthetic surgeon, Professor Motolese, Aqualyx® injections have been used in 49 countries around the world, with over 2,000,000 vials being used since 2009.
What do Aqualyx® injections achieve?
Aquaplasty™ or Aqualysis™ uses fat dissolving injections as part of a precise protocol to target localised fat deposits in areas of the body in order to liquefy the fat cell, destroying it. The lipids are then naturally eliminated through your body’s lymphatic system.
Aqualyx® injections can be used in a number of places on the body, including:
- Saddle bags
- Abnormal (upper & lower)
It also works as an effective treatment against pseudo-gynomastia in men.
How are Aqualyx® injections administered?
For these fat dissolving injections, we make use of specially designed long, flexible cannulas. Injections will be given to every area being treated. An numbing solution is added prior to injection for greater comfort, and patients report good tolerance of the treatment.
Depending on the number of small pockets of fat tissue to be reduced, the injections are repeated between two and eight times, every 6 to 8 weeks.
It’s perfectly normal to experience some level of redness, swelling, tenderness and skin irritation in the area treated for up to six days after Aqualyx® injections.
How quickly will you see results from Aqualyx® injections?
You should see a reduction in fat deposits after just one treatment of fat dissolving injections, with the optimal effect being visible after between 3 and 6 treatments. The stability of your fat cell membranes will vary the speed at which you see a difference. Younger patients are likely to have to wait longer for the desired results.

8 Point Liquid Face Lift
What is the 8-point face lift?
How does dermal filler help?
With ageing, the face loses volume which creates sagging, folds, lines and wrinkles, usually not just confined to one particular area of your face, but to several (such as the jowls, bags under the eyes, cheeks, corners of the mouth, etc.). Not only does this leave you looking older, but it can also make you look sad, tired or grumpy all the time.
The 8 Point Lift is an advanced dermal filler technique that targets 8 key facial areas in order to restore volume, enhance and contour your natural features, and lift, smooth and tighten your face — while aiming to minimising the amount of filler required to be injected (making it more cost effective). This also helps to minimise the "puffy face" effect sometimes seen in celebrities who have had too much facial filler!
The 8 Point Lift aims to provide a more complete facial rejuvenation experience than treatments which only focus on one or two areas of your face. By targeting multiple key areas, the 8 Point Lift helps to maximise the face lifting, supportive, and contouring effects that dermal fillers offer.
Cheekbones can appear more defined, dark circles under the eyes reduced, folds that run from the nose to mouth flattened, and downturned corners of mouth restored back to their natural smiley position.
Facial asymmetry can also be corrected using this technique, restoring a balanced and attractive symmetry to your face.
Areas that the 8 Point Lift treatment targets include:
- Cheek Bones - to define, enhance and lift your cheekbones, which also helps pull up, tighten and support the mid and lower face.
- Dark Circles - the 8 Point Lift can help to fill the hollowing under the eyes. For more significant hollowing, specific tear trough may be required.
- Nasolabial Folds - these are the nose to mouth lines that can become deeper and more prominent with age.
- Marionette Lines — the 8 point lift aims to turns a sad mouth upside down! Ageing can cause the corners of the mouth to turn down. Dermal filler and the 8 point lift helps to reverse a "downward frown."
- Pre-jowl area - these are the saggy jowl folds between the chin and jawline. Targeting these with the 8 point lift helps to re-contour and tighten your jawline.
- Jawline - enhancement of the jawline angle with the 8 point lift helps to reduce jowls and create a sharper jawline by creating a subtle lift.
- Mid-face/cheeks — ageing causes hollowing and a subsequent gaunt appearance when volume is lost from the mid-face and cheeks. Dermal filler from the 8 point lift replenishes this lost volume, tightening the skin and providing a lift to the rest of your face.
As we age our skin naturally loses the radiant glow of youth. Photoaging, also referred to as extrinsic aging is predominantly caused by exposure to ultraviolent waves (UV) from the sun over a long period of time. Sun damage, caused by exposure to these UV rays, speeds up the process of photoaging through the breakdown of collagen and elastin in skin cells. The loss of collagen and elastin causes the skin to sag and lose its firmness. Sun exposure may be the biggest cause of premature skin aging but there are other major causes such as smoking, pollution, alcohol, poor diet and repeated facial expressions.
Eventually our lifetime of accumulated sun exposure wears down our natural shields. Our skin comes under direct attack, and we begin to see more clearly the signs of aging: wrinkles, sagging skin, enlarged pores, freckling, and spider veins. Rejuvenation is the process of reversing these signs of ageing and restoring your skin to its previous youthful appearance. Here at G L Aesthetics we offer IPL Skin Rejuvenation to rejuvenate your skin to its former glory.
The IPL treatment can also be used to visibly reduce the signs of ageing and the damage caused by sun exposure, trauma, illness and other lifestyle factors. The IPL system regenerates the skin by stimulating the production of collagen over a period of time. This improves the skin's elasticity, texture and can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The machine used at clinic comes with a range of heads and filters that are treatment-specific. This allows us to deliver an individually tailored treatment according to your skin type.
The IPL treatment can also target and reduce the appearance of thread veins, rosacea, age spots & acne scarring.
Laser Tattoo removal
Life is too short for regrets. If you regret having a particular tattoo – perhaps because it features the name of a now ex-partner or because the design no longer appeals to your tastes then we are able to help.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser treatment is one of the most popular and effective techniques for fading and removing unwanted tattoos, although the results depend on the type of tattoo and the colour of the ink.
Can laser treatment help me?
In our experience, black ink absorbs all the laser light and therefore fades more than any other colour. Some coloured inks are highly resistant to laser treatment – in particular, tattoos in green ink. If you have an amateur Indian ink tattoo, it will probably respond well to treatment, whereas multi-coloured professional tattoos are less likely to disappear altogether.
We would always recommend that you book an initial consultation as we will be able to examine the tattoo in detail and give you an honest, realistic assessment of how it will respond to laser treatment.
Unfortunately, no method of tattoo removal is completely pain-free. Laser tattoo removal has been likened to the feeling of having a rubber band repeatedly snapped against the skin. Others describe it as a rapid succession of sharp pinpricks, or a warm, prickly sensation. Because a lot of energy is needed in order for the laser to break up the ink particles under your skin, this treatment can be uncomfortable for some people. Your skin will also need 6 – 12 weeks to recover between treatments.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
Composed of Hyaluronic acid of varying density, fillers can be used to volumise, enhance and augment the facial tissues. Areas injected includes;
- smile lines
- marionette lines
- smokers lines
- Tear trough area
- deep lines in the face and scars.
Result can last 6 months-2 years. Recommended to repeat at least once a year.
Lumi Eyes by Dermaren is a high quality PDRN treatment which offers deep hydration and rejuvenation to the eye area by effectively reducing signs of fatigue such as dark circles, restoring lost volume, and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. This tear-trough treatment works to repair and regenerate damaged tissue around the delicate eye area, as well as stimulating the skin’s own production of collagen and elastin. Following treatment, the eye area is firmer, sagging and wrinkles are improved, dark shadows are reduced, and the eye area is lightened, brightened, hydrated, fresh, and revitalised.
If you are looking to address concerns of dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, and lost volume to the eye area, then Lumi Eyes is the perfect treatment for you.
Lumi Eyes offers perfect results after just one session, however for optimum results, we recommend having a course of 2 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Following the initial course, we would recommend an additional session once a year to maintain results.

The pen generates plasma energy that penetrates the skin outer layer causing the mole and skin tag to come off. Thus method of mole and skin tag procedure is completely safe.
What is Xanthelasma?
These are small yellowish deposits of fat/cholesterol that tend to form around the eyelids. They often tend to form around the inner corners of the upper and lower eyelids. In some cases they are associated with elevated levels of cholesterol in the bloodstream. If these fatty lumps appear around the eyes it is advisable to see your GP to get a blood test. If cholesterol levels are elevated dietary modifications and/or medications may be started to help reduce the cholesterol level.
The deposits themselves are harmless. So technically nothing needs to be done. However many people will find them a cosmetic nuisance and wish to get rid of them. There are many techniques that can be used to help with removing xanthelasma. These very from surgery with removal of the sections of the skin of the lid to laser techniques involving vaporisation of the affected tissue.
The smaller the lesion the less chance there is of scarring or discolouration of the affected skin. Larger lesions may leave small scars or discolouration within the skin.
There is also a risk of infection. To help with healing we will recommend an antibiotic ointment to apply following the procedure. This can be used twice daily for 3 days.
It is important to understand that any removal of xanthelasma does not prevent new lesions from developing in the future.
Lasers can be used to successfully remove these cholesterol deposits in just one treatment (although up to 3 procedures may be required). The procedure involves resurfacing the area affected and removing the lesion with high precision. Laser removal offers accuracy and removes the lesion with little or no scarring and little or no pigmentation both which occur at higher rates with other forms of removal.
Xanthelasma Removal using Laser is straightforward and takes around 15-20 minutes per eyelid. It is completely pain free thanks to the use of numbing (so you can stay awake throughout). Following the procedure, a small abrasion will appear in the treated area. Soon a small scab will form which takes five to seven days to heal. During this period, it is vital to allow natural healing and natural release of the scab. Most healing wounds simply need to be kept clean.

What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a super effective exfoliating treatment where the therapist administering the treatment uses a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off any dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. In addition dermaplaning also removes any peach fuzz on your face leaving your skin super smooth.
Why is dermaplaning so good for the skin?
Over time, dead skin cells build up on the skin making your complexion appear dull & flaky. This build-up of dead skin cells can even cause breakouts. This is because dead skin cells clog pores and hair follicles creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
What type of exfoliation is dermaplaning?
Regular exfoliation is essential to help promote an even, healthy glowing skin. Dermaplaning is a form of mechanical exfoliation. It is often combined with an enzyme or chemical skin peel, which are both forms of chemical exfoliation i.e. products that use a combination of naturally exfoliating ingredients to breakdown the dead skin cells and gently lift the dead skin away to reveal the younger more youthful skin cells underneath.
The results of a skin peel is brighter and smoother skin. Imagine how more enhanced the results are when combined with a dermaplaning facial.
Thinking of making an appointment to try dermaplaning? Read on to understand what it involves and how to get the best from your treatment.
Who is a Dermaplaning Facial good for?
Dermaplaning is recommended for most skin types. So whether you have:
- sun damage.
- fine lines.
- dry skin or dull skin.
… generally, dermaplaning is a great treatment for most people.
However, inflamed acne is not a good candidate for dermaplaning. In this instance, your skin therapist should advise treatments to calm and assist your complexion to clear up more before having a treatment.
Will it affect the hairgrowth on my face?
Unlike shaving, dermaplaning will not make your hair grow back thicker or darker. The hair on a woman’s face is a soft, light, downy hair known as vellus hair. This type of hair does not grow back thicker or darker.
Is there any down time to dermaplaning?
There is no downtime to dermaplaning except that we advise that a minimum of SPF 30 should be used for up to 48 hours post treatment. This is to protect the skin from being over sensitised in sunlight. However, it is always a sensible approach to take and use a good SPF to protect skin from UV damage on a daily basis, no matter what time of the year it is.

Prevents premature ageing
Collagen, a protein produced in the body, maintains the elasticity of your skin. The amount of collagen starts decreasing with age. Gold helps keep the collagen level steady and makes your skin firm, so that you don’t have a sagging skin- a sign of aging.
Gets rid of your wrinkles
Gold helps in activating the basal cells of your skin thereby increasing elasticity. This in turn reduces wrinkles, spots, blemishes, and fine lines, thus clearing up your skin.
Reduces skin inflammation
Gold is believed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It also works as an antioxidant and increases oxygen supply to the skin cells. Hence, it helps to reduce acne, scars, and other skin allergies.
Treats sun damage
Given our continuous exposure to pollution and the harsh sun, there is an increased production of melanin- a pigment which makes skin darker. Gold helps to reduce the amount of melanin thereby controlling sun-damage. Gold facials are popularly used in salons to induce a natural glow and fairness to the skin, keeping it moisturised and toned.

This reveals the newer, more vibrant skin below, making it feel and look smoother, healthier and more youthful.

Sensitive skin, skin that easily reddens, or skin with acne breakouts.
Clients who have been taking Roaccutane in the last 6 months.

You'll see the difference even after just one facial, however for more problematic skin concerns a course may be recommended of around 4-8 sessions spaced 10-14 days apart.
With regular treatments, the skin increases its collagen and elastin formation, to give you a naturally firmer and more rejuvenated look.
