Our Rosacea Facial is designed to soothe and strengthen reactive, sensitive skin. We are able to adapt this facial to your individual skincare concerns, using either a light mask or peel and LED light to treat inflammation and repair your skin or a selection of rosacea-focused products from our cosmeceutical product ranges.
As a shield for your skin, the top layer – the epidermis – acts like a protective barrier that is there to stop irritants passing through and damaging the cells deeper within.
Over time, damage caused by factors such as sun damage, ageing, poor skin care, genetics, pollution and/or chronic skin conditions can gradually weaken this barrier. In turn, this leads to dry, inflamed, flaky, sensitive skin.
This facial has been designed to help address the causes of sensitive, reactive skin and to offer relief from conditions such as rosacea. It combines powerful anti-inflammatory and strengthening technologies and ingredients to promote the regeneration of a healthy epidermis for that it functions properly and were able to reduce the tell-tale redness of rosacea.
You should see some immediate improvements to your skin as well as ongoing positive changes over several weeks. Many people with sensitive or rosacea-prone skin find this is an excellent monthly facial treatment to protect their skin and minimise sensitivity.
When you have sensitive and/or reactive skin, it’s especially important to use products and treatment methods that will address the underlying problems without causing a flare up. This is why an initial consultation with skin analysis is an integral part of our treatments at Aesthetics Lab.
You will have the opportunity to discuss your skincare concerns in-depth and go through your medical history with one of our experienced Aestheticians. This will help us to identify the most suitable products for your rosacea-prone skin.
We’ll explain each stage of your treatment in detail so you know what the facial entails. Feel free to ask questions – we’ll answer openly and honestly.
Relax as we gently cleanse your skin and conduct a thorough skin analysis to determine the most suitable decongesting peel. We will then apply a Mandelic or Lactic Acid Peel, ideal for sensitive and/or reactive skin, depending on which is most suitable for you. After several minutes, the peel will be removed.
As well as exfoliating dead skin cells, the peel will penetrate the deeper layers of your skin to strengthen and reinforce the underlying structure, while healing and soothing the epidermis.
With your skin feeling fresher and healthier, we’ll give you a light detoxifying and draining facial massage. This is deeply relaxing and uses special techniques to maximise the effectiveness of the products used during this facial.
Finally, we use LED light therapy because it is proven to have an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory healing effect on the skin, which should reduce any signs of redness.
At the end of the treatment, we will apply soothing serums and sun protection to your skin. You’re then free to carry on with your day with healthy, glowing skin.
Some people experience some mild redness immediately post-treatment but each element of the Rosacea Facial has anti-inflammatory properties, so you should find the redness passes within an hour.
Your skin will look healthier immediately but you should notice ongoing improvements, especially a reduction in any redness and inflammation.
