Our new Glow Up treatment is available for the month of November and includes all the essential beauty treatments to leave you feeling great!
Although we don’t think your confidence should ever be dependent on your appearance, sometimes nothing quite makes you feel as good as indulging in a touch of pampering.
When we feel good about ourselves, we tend to feel more confident too. So, even if the silly season is feeling flat – you don’t have to. Cheer yourself up with a Glow Up treatment – save 20% and walk out the door feeling fabulous!
These tiny “peach fuzz” hairs above the lips and on the cheeks can often appear more obvious when foundation and powder are applied to the area, making it difficult to get that glowing, smooth finish for a special event.
Dermaplaning also removes redundant dry and flakey skin cells, to allow your active serums to penetrate your skin’s deeper layers, resulting in a healthier and more hydrated complexion.
Our Dermaplaning Facial is one of our most popular party and event prep treatments due to its ability to create such a smooth and resurfaced skin tone. Once you try it, you’ll be addicted!
Makeup application becomes easier, and the finished result is transformational, resulting in smooth cheeks that reflect radiance and none of those facial hair shadows above the lips that can make us feel a little self-conscious.
It’s an ideal alternative to (sometimes) uncomfortable face waxing or threading methods too, which can cause redness and irritation for some.
It’s hair removal and skin rejuvenation in one! All you’ll need now is a glam manicure and brow refresh for a full party glow-up.
This treatment is performed by a highly trained and qualified skin therapist here at Nicola Quinn, using a very sharp and sterile surgical blade to gently scrape away dead skin cell build up (which can make your skin look dry, dull or uneven) as well as removing the fine vellus hairs over the face.
Once this process is complete, a clean, active serum or hydrating lotion is applied to your face to hydrate and brighten the skin. The result is a deep skin exfoliation, a baby-smooth face, and the perfect glowing base for your foundation.
Contrary to what we’ve been told about body hair all our life, these fine hairs on our face will not grow back thicker or darker.
The hair is cut straight across, so it may feel slightly different when it comes back (although they are so thin you’ll barely notice!), but this hair will continue to grow back at the same speed, and won’t grow dark, thick or long like the hairs on our legs.
The purpose of these tiny, translucent vellus hair is to insulate the skin, however in modern life this isn’t something we need – not to mention it can contribute to build up of dead skin cells and grime. By removing this hair, our skin looks and feels clearer and brighter.
Being that this treatment includes a deep exfoliation of your skin, it’s best to wait one month between appointments, and your skin should stay glowing and smooth during this time.
The best thing about Dermaplaning is that it is a quick and simple treatment with absolutely no pain or recovery time, although you’ll need to be diligent with your mineral SPF afterwards to protect your fresh new layers of skin from sun damage.
You may also want to skip makeup for a few hours, as with any exfoliation treatment your skin may be a little sensitive straight afterwards.
