Today I have had the most amazing facial treatment, and I swear my skin has not felt and looked this good in years!
I am not blessed with great skin unfortunately – and after years spent working in hospitality, I have never been able to stick to good skin routines. Sometimes if I’m lucky (and usually during the summer months) my skin looks acceptable, but most of the time it looks a little dull and not that great, but not today!
Seeing as I now do not have to work past midnight (ever!) – I really don’t have any excuse for my complete lack of good-skin-discipline – and have been meaning to flash into some sort of action for a while. So, after making friends with Emma Massey, joint owner of brand new B City Chester (city centre) – I took her advice and booked in for a Skin Peel and Dermalux™ combined treatment.
I arrived at the salon just before my appointment time this afternoon and completed the necessary forms over a cup of tea – had a chat with Emma about the treatments – and headed upstairs to a very chic and über-comfortable treatment room.
After removing my make-up, Emma applied the Dermaceutic™ chemical peel product which contains glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or mandelic acid. This tingles a little but is in no-way uncomfortable – in fact it feels great!
Emma gently removed the product before placing the Dermalux™ machine over my face for twenty minutes – this machine helps the skin produce vitamin D, provides energy and serotonin, encourages cell growth and can rejuvenate collagen in your skin. The results were unbelievable!
Apart from the fact that this a very relaxing experience – my skin looked the best its looked in years – after just one treatment!
B City Chester recommend a course of 4 treatments, and I will certainly be taking their advice.
This salon is lovely, I have visited twice in a week and thoroughly enjoyed my experience on both visits. The team is professional and friendly – chatty and welcoming – and I can’t wait for my next appointment!
