The bank holiday is here…it’s my birthday weekend and there’s no better way to start it off than with a bit of birthday pampering.
If you live in Essex and are looking for that high quality little slice of tranquillity then look no further than Serenity Spa, Hockley. Their extensive treatment list and expertise makes this my number one place for facial and body therapy.
Today I wanted to share this amazing treatment with you. Thalgo Mceutic Renovation Radicale is a facial with a chemical peel…so more than your average aromatherapy relaxation facial. It uses innovative products with active ingredients to produce visible effects on your skin after just one treatment. I find Thalgo products Unique anyway. If you don’t know Thalgo are pioneers in Marine Intelligence and use 50 years of experience in exploring the oceans for specialist ingreedeients. In particular their Mceutic range is medically-inspired so don’t expect floral or tropical smells. They smell lovely but different to you’re average facial products…you can feel them on the skin actually doing something and the Mèsolift Marin has been patented due to its individual effects to the skin. In simple terms it is like a non invasive version if the Vampire facial; infusing the skin with bio-regeneratives to boost the skin cells and regeneration for a more youthful appearance.
My therapist, Emma, first determined what level of intensity my skin needed. Depending on your individual skin condition the peel can go from subtle to quite abrasive.
The treatment starts with a gentle cleanse followed by the regenerating chemical peel. A prodetox product is then applied to draw out any impurities and aid in de-congestion of the skin. That is then followed by the Mèsolift which literally felt like a drink for my skin. The mask completed the layer and locks those products into the skin for 10 to 15 minutes. After the removal of all three of these, a high dose serum is applied to feed and resurface the skin.
My skin immediately felt replenished and visibly I could see it quite literally glowing. It was dewy and bright.
It’s recommended in a block of 6; once a week for 4 weeks and then one every other month. Due to the abrasive nature it is then only recommended for a top up once a year. It’s so important for 7 days afterwards to wear a factor 50 SPF on the face and avoid the sun as the skin has been peeled so will be extremely sensitive.
