Therefore, there are no toxic side-effects. The best part is it can be customized to different skin types.

THE ELAINE BRENNAN GETGLOWING MICROPEEL

This is the first Salon in Australia to offer this MicroPeel!

This Peel can be performed all year round, provided the client uses adequate SPF everyday

1 x session includes 1 x GetGlowing Peel session

Course of 6 GetGlowing Micro Peels 2 -6 weeks apart

What is the Elaine Brennan GetGlowing Micro-peel?

The GetGlowing Micro-Peel is a treatment in which a cream is applied to the skin to encourage the exfoliation of dead skin cells and debris while stimulating the skin’s natural renewal process. The GetGlowing Micro-peel is tailored to fit your clients’ individual skin type and long-term goals.

Why was the GetGlowing Micro-Peel Formulated?

Lynda van der Spuy, daughter of Elaine Brennan, created the Micro-Peel for the client who cannot afford the down time of the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peeling as well as for clients looking for a less expensive option.

How does the Get Glowing Micro-Peel differ from the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peel?

There is no comparison between the two peels and should not be confused with one another. The GetGlowing Micro-Peel is a mild peeling which will lightly exfoliate the skin leaving it refreshed and soft.

What results will I see?

The GetGlowing Micro-peel is designed to refine skin texture damaged by environmental factors and skin conditions such as acne. The procedure assists in smoothing fine lines and evening out skin discoloration. It improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of acne scars and environmental damage to the skin. With each additional Micro-Peel procedure, you will notice incremental improvements in the overall appearance of the skin.

How many treatments do my clients need?

For maximum results, we recommend a series of Six GetGlowing Micro-Peel procedures in two to six week intervals, depending on the skin type.

CONTRA-INDICATIONS

Pregnant and breast feeding women, anyone who is taking the drug ACCUTANE and for a minimum of 6-12 months postACCUTANE, anyone who has ACTIVE CANCER, anyone currently undergoing CHEMOTHERAPY or RADIATION or is taking an ORAL CHEMOTHERAPY DRUG, anyone who currently has HERPES OUTBREAK (cold sores, etc.) or has FLU.

Anyone who is allergic to RESORCINOL or SALICYLATES (aspirin) & HAIR DYE.

How Often Should You Get A Professional Facial?

Cost and time aside, we recommend to have a facial at least every 4 weeks to maintain and keep your skin in the best condition. After having a Facial when you are at home it is very important to take care of your skin by cleansing & Moisturising on daily basis in between your facials. Your beauty therapist will recommend suitable products for your skin type and condition based on your needs.

By doing regular facials you will starting to see and feel the difference in your skin. 
 
Why every 4 weeks? we recommend to have a facial because our skin cell turnover cycle is 28 days long. So getting a professional facial is very important to help the production of collagen & Elasticity in your skin. You also need to remember to use sun protection on your face to protect your skin. 
 
Facials can also help in clearing clogged pores and remove dead skin cell. A facial is essentially multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A Facial cleanser, exfoliates, and nourish the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion and it can help your skin look younger. A Facial is most popular spa treatment after a massage.
 
It is also very important to keep that in mind that using a profession skin care at home will help to achieve the best results faster, the reason behind it after having 1 hour facial in day spa your skin feels most hydrated, clean and able to breath so imagine by using good skin care at home every day will enhance your results that will last for longer time of period.
 
We use makeup everyday to hide all the discolouration and uneven skin tone and even to look and feel better, instead of hiding it behind the makeup its better to look after your skin so its in the best condition. Always clean your face with cleanser and then use a prescribed moisturiser followed by your primer and then foundation. It sounds too much of work but believe me using foundation directly on your face is the worse thing you can do face your face because foundation is there to cover the impurities not to fix them and shouldn’t absorb in your skin. By using primer under your moistures will help to create the barrier between your skin and foundation so it will not clogged your pores and stays where it should instead of going into the skin.
 
Having a regular facials will help not only deeply cleansing your skin but also help to penetrate all the products into deeper level of your skin so you will get fast results that last longer. My favourite facial is Deep Cleansing & Microhydrabrasion that cleanse your skin very deeply so it can breath.
 
I love helping all my clients to achieve the best results and when they leave happy that just makes my day.
 

Feel free to ask any question you may have and I will see you all very soon

 

Skin and Body Care Tips

Winter is here which means it’s that time of year where we really need to nourish and care for our skin. With shorter days and less Vitamin D from the sun, it’s crucial we look at supporting our skin both internally and externally.

Winter often brings dry, flakey and sometimes itchy skin, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer. Some of the best things you can do to support your skin in Winter is:

  • Dry body brushing before you shower to stimulate the lymphatic system and get the blood flowing.
  • Make sure your shower water is warm and not too hot. Hot water although it can feel really nice, can also have a damaging effect on the skin over time.
  • Keep your skin on your face and body moisturised. The best time to apply your moisturiser is straight after you shower. This will allow the skin to soak up the moisture and make it easier for you to apply. Also look at keeping a small tube of moisturiser in your handbag for those crisp and windy days, so you can reapply to your face, lips and even hands during Winter.
  • Stay hydrated! Drink as much H2O as possible. Ensuring you are drinking appropriately 2ltrs of filtered clean water each day, will help keep your skin hydrated from Winter.
  • Nourish your skin from within. Add a skin boosting collagen or greens/reds powder to your diet to allow your skin to be boosted with antioxidants from within. A healthy gut is vital for glowing skin.
  • Create time each week for an at home facial routine. Cleanse, exfoliate and apply a hydrating mask to keep your skin in a healthy condition. I personally love using a cream based hydration mask which I can apply and wear overnight while I sleep to give my skin an extra boost! Also don’t forget to treat your eyes and lips. The skin is more delicate in those areas so it’s important to ensure you’re taking extra care of them as well

We hope you have found these skin tips helpful and we would love to see you in the Spa soon!

hot stone massage

Hot Stone Massage

hot stone massage

We love Hot Stone Massage, especially in the cooler months. It’s not only a great way to relax and revive sore muscles, but there’s also some amazing therapeutic effects from the treatment.

Hot Stone Massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones expand blood vessels, which increases blood flow throughout the body allowing muscles to be flooded with nutrients. The hot stones can have a sedative effect that can help to relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

It is thought to have originated in China almost 2,000 years ago. Since then, the technique of using stones for massage and healing has been used in many different cultures, including the Americas, Africa, Egypt, and India.

A hot stone massage uses a combination of both the therapists hands, warm oils and the basalt stones to relax the muscles and ease tension. Stones are placed in various points on the body as well, including the back, hands and feet, where the heat is penetrating into the muscles. It is also believed that the stones create an energy to help calm and clear the mind.

We love the results from performing a beautiful Hot Stone Massage on our clients. It’s a truly unique experience and one which can really help you to feel better overall.

We’d love to see you soon for a Hot Stone Massage

Beautiful is a Feeling

Beautiful is a Feeling

And we happen to be in the business of making you feel beautiful

 

Can we talk matter-of-factly for a minute? I want to be real and vulnerable with you.

Have you ever felt like spending money on something like a facial, massage or anti-aging treatment is an expense you can’t justify?

It’s ‘unnecessary money being spent.’ I’m being 100% real here for a moment – work with me on this.

There is an assumption out there that anyone who runs a business is only after making money. And so, with a luxury service such as beauty, why would anyone justify spending money on something they don’t NEED.

I mean sure, there are people with skin conditions who want to have them addressed and there are stressed out people who NEED to have relaxing massages to ease their tension headaches.

But if there’s nothing MAJOR to address, why should I spend that money on something I don’t need?

Hmmm, good question!

Yes, a lot of our services DO help correct a lot of concerns people have and they DO have them leaving the spa feeling amazing and confident.

That’s a big reason why my team and I love doing what we do.

We see the immediate transformation and know that we helped someone have a better day, week, month, simply by doing something we love – who could hate that?

Bu that’s not the questions here.

The questions is, if someone doesn’t NEED anything corrected, why would they spend money on a luxury?

The truth is, we truly believe that FEELING beautiful is not a luxury. Nor is it being vain.

Think about it for a second.

We’re not talking about obsessing over NEEDING to look beautiful, we’re talking about beautiful as a feeling.

When we FEEL beautiful something happens in our body…it’s called Endorphins. It’s literally the female JOY hormone. The one that relieves stress and anxiety and gives us energy.

The one that makes us want to smile at everyone and pay it forward with random acts of kindness.

The hormone that turns a crappy day into the best day ever! You feel so good and people start to respond to you differently. They open doors for you, give you a discount, buy you flowers…the list of possibilities is endless, but the point remains the same – when we FEEL beautiful, we release Endorphins that make us an extremely happy and joyful person. Can I get an AMEN?!

THIS is why we truly believe that everything we do as a team in the Face Body Day Spa is important. Whether you have something you NEED corrected or you just want to tap into that JOY hormone by FEELING beautiful – we’ve got you covered.

Just because we are a business, it doesn’t mean we only want to make money. Nope. We NEED to make money in order to stay open – yes, but we’ve CHOSEN this profession because we love impacting our client’s days and lives in the best way possible!

So next time you say to yourself that you don’t NEED a facial or massage, remember this random conversation we had lol; You may not NEED it, but you DESERVE to FEEL beautiful and have the best experience of life ever!!

Benefits of Face Exfoliation / Face Scrub

Benefits of Face Exfoliation / Face Scrub

Today I would like to explain to you the benefits of using a face exfoliation / face scrub. ??‍♀️

There are so many benefits and reasons as to why you should incorporate exfoliating into your beauty routine. When you exfoliate regularly you help remove ingrained dirt, old dead skin, and improve the over all look of your face.

When you scrub away the old flakey skin, you reveal a more soft and smooth looking skin. One that looks revived! Not only will the texture of your skin improve but you will also help slow down the rate at which your skin ages. Once your skin deeply cleansed, it helps the product deeply penetrate into your skin so it can work and your skin condition will start to improve.

If you are not exfoliating your face, your skin may appear very dull and dry, make up does not sit well and looks very flakey. These are the signs of not looking after your skin & also not exfoliating your skin but using a moisturiser is not going to help either, because its not absorbing or penetrating into your skin, but staying on the top skin which will result in clogged pores, having acne prone skin and can also cause break outs.

One of the most common questions we have about exfoliating is, how often you should you exfoliate your face? The amount you should exfoliate all depends on your skin type. You definitely should not be exfoliating every day. We recommend scrubbing 2-3 times a week or as your skin specialists advises. If you have been over scrubbing stop right away and let your skin heal!

To properly exfoliate make sure you always wash your face first, then apply the scrub in a circular motion. Focus on areas around the nose and your forehead. Follow up with a nice smooth and hydrating moisturiser to hydrate your skin.

Why Microdermabrasion is a MUST for Your Skin

Why Microdermabrasion is a MUST for your skin

Microhydrabrasion your skin’s new best friend!

Does your skin need a deep clean?

When your teeth need cleaning, you go to the dentist.

When your carpets are dirty, you have them professionally cleaned.

When your car is dirty, it gets washed.

What about your skin?

Blackheads, pimples and cysts are all caused from build-up in the pores. This can make you feel really uncomfortable and unhappy in your own skin.

There’s nothing worse then feeling like you want to hide your skin, instead of embracing it and showing off how beautiful it is.

The skin has pores and follicles that need to be deeply cleaned, professionally and regularly. Pores and follicles need to be cleaned and washed on the inside, to prevent breakouts and a rough or uneven texture.

And I know, you’re probably thinking, that’s ok, I cleanse, exfoliate, mask and moisturise my skin at home, I don’t need regular salon treatments. If that’s you, than I really want to celebrate how AWESOME that it!! You’re committed to taking great care of your skin. But you may find it still needs something more…

Well Hydrabrasion is a microdermabrasion system that exfoliates with both a dry and a wet system. The skin is deeply exfoliated with diamonds while simultaneously vacuuming and washing it. It’s a lot like getting your carpets professionally cleaned. This treatment is a soothing, refreshing and deeply cleaning treat for your skin.

Hydrabrasion makes aggressive microdermabrasion treatments a thing of the past! Because it’s so much more gentle on your skin, you won’t need to allow any down time and can can instantly feel the results.

The technology is a very gentle treatment, that doesn’t hurt. There’s no harsh abrasion to your skin. You probably could take a nap while the treatment is being done (who doesn’t love that!!).

Your skin will be cleansed, then a small diamond tip that is attached to a mild vacuum cleaner which is worked over your skin to exfoliate it and to remove any dead skin. Once the blockages are cleared from your skin, a deeper clean can be achieved. This is when we wash it to clean out the build-up.

TREATMENT TIME

The treatment only takes about 20 minutes, but long enough to wash out every pore. Once the diamond tip is finished, you will have a second treatment with a water system, this will wash out the pores and follicles to ensure the best skin wash ever. Imagine how squeaky clean your skin will feel!!

Hydrabrasion can be added in to your favourite facial or as a stand a lone facial. You can choose from a quick 30minute option focusing on the face, or a longer more intensive facial which includes the face, neck and décolleté.

MAINTAIN YOUR RESULTS

Maintenance is achieved by cleaning your skin twice a day, exfoliating at least once a week, and continuing this treatment a minimum of once a month. The moment you get sight of a blind pimple, blackheads or a nasty pimple about to break through, it’s a sign you need another treatment! You may also notice your foundation or makeup just isn’t sitting as nicely or your skin just doesn’t look as beautiful and glowing as it normally would when you have the treatment done.

For a limited time, we are celebrating our incredible Microhydrabrasion treatment where you can receive your first facial for only $57! We want everyone to experience how great this facial really is, so we’d love to treat you to one soon. Just book through our online booking request or give the Day Spa a call on (02) 9683 4338
