Our most luxurious facial, ideal for a big event – wedding, graduation, big Birthday!
What is a Red-Carpet Facial?
The Red-Carpet Facial @ Aesthetics Shrewsbury, is our signature facial. It combines the power of cryotherapy and AlumierMD luxury medical skin care products for both professional use in surgery and at home. Also known as ‘Frotox’ due to its ability to tighten and smooth the skin.
Cryotherapy cleanses and massages the skin using targeted jets of cold (liquid Co2) which gradually lower the temperature of the skin to around 4’c. This is called Thermal Shock. The body’s natural response to rapid cooling causes an immediate increase in the flow of oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the area.
This non-invasive procedure exfoliates dead cells, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and promotes natural collagen production, skin hydration and overall sense of wellbeing.
The Red-Carpet Facial is perfect for all skin types even sensitive and breakout prone skin types closes pores without reactions or further breakouts. It’s especially effective on skins with inflammatory conditions like acne and rosacea.
What to expect during treatment?
The treatment is over 2 sessions 2 weeks apart and last for about 45minutes each time. Your skin is thoroughly prepped and cleansed to remove makeup, moisturisers and any toxins that are naturally present on the skin. Once the skin is clean and dry the cryotherapy machine (KaasenLife by Trucryo) is used which sprays dry Co2 over the face to reduce the skin temperature and allow thermal shock/Cryolypolisis to occur. It’s noisy and very cold but not uncomfortable. Unlike other facials it’s not the most relaxing experience the results are worth it.
We then apply an Enzyme retexturing treatment (mild achemical peel) which is massaged onto the skin to aid lymphatic drainage, moving along all the toxins and tension in the facial muscles. The Enzymatic Peel is a highly effective exfoliator that combines 10% lactic acid with fruit enzymes bromelain and papain to exfoliate dead skin cells and promote skin renewal, minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Aloe vera extract calms inflammation and redness, while sodium hyaluronate, vitamin B5 and gluconolactone hydrate and soften skin for a supple and radiant complexion.
Finally, the skin is treated with AlumierMD Ultimate Boost Serum which is a lightweight serum that boosts hydration and enhances the skin’s natural hydrolipid barrier with sodium hyaluronate and niacinamide (vitamin B3). Skin will be left soft, smooth, firm and hydrated – illuminous!
Is Cryotherapy safe?
There is a risk of ‘frostnip’ – damage to the surface layer of skin which is not permanent, but we prevent this by keeping the device moving at all times. The KassenLife device has lasers fitted that are able to detect the skin temperature in real time and is programmed to cut out if the temperature falls too low. Ultimately Cryotherapy is non-invasive and risks are minimum.
What to expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment your skin may be a little pink – this is normal and usually clears within a few minutes.
We encourage you to drink lots of water to encourage the toxins out of your system efficiently.
You will also be given a customised AlumierMD kit containing full size skin care products depending on your skin type and needs which we will ask you to use every day. The kit comprises of three simple steps – cleanser, serum and sunscreen.
Your skin will look immediately radiant – Red Carpet ready! Over the course of the two weeks following treatment the immediate radiance is met with incremental improvements – reduced pores, reduction in fine lines, firmer skin and an overall glow.
Follow up care.
A further treatment as described above is carried out two weeks later and you are encouraged to continue with the home care until the products run out – around 3-4months. Your skin will continue to improve following this boost leaving you with a clear radiant complexion.
