Facial Treatments Are Beneficial, Even for Those Without a Skin Complaint

Facials will cleanse your skin of pollutants, which will help to rejuvenate it and improve its texture and tone. Also, these treatments increase the blood flow to the face, which translates to healthier cells; after all, improved blood circulation means more oxygen and nutrients.

Different Types of Facial Treatments

As mentioned, we offer many different types of facial treatments at ASC, so choosing the right one for you can be daunting. So, let’s take a look at each of our facial treatments to help you choose which to book at one of our cosmetic skin clinics.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

laser skin resurfacing procedure removes the outer layers of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen, as well as the production of new cells. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face and neck.

Chemical Peels

These facials are typically used as anti-ageing treatments to rejuvenate the complexion. This is done by correcting skin texture irregularities and evening the skin tone. Chemical peels have varying degrees of strength and use different acid types in their chemical solution. Our professional and highly experienced clinicians will assess your skin during a discreet consultation where you can discuss your areas of concern and skin goals. From here, we can use this information and the analysis of your skin to come up with the best chemical peel solution for you.

SmartXide CO2 Laser Resurfacing

SmartXide CO2 Laser Resurfacing technology is highly powerful and efficient in revitalising and enhancing the tone and texture of the skin. It is popular amongst our patients because of its ability to reduce the visibility of wrinkles, lines, scar tissue, burns, and lax, crepey skin. In addition, it has an impressively short downtime, with impressive results showing almost instantly.

What Are The Best Facial Treatments and What Are Their Benefits?

At ASC, we offer a wide range of facial treatments perfect for many patients, meaning you will always receive the best treatment for your skin. However, we advise that you first discuss your needs with our professionals, who will help you make the right decision. This is because specific facials are best suited for some types of skin instead of others, which means you may not get the result you’re looking for if you select a treatment without prior discussion.

Take a look at what our facial treatments can do for you:

Diamond Glow

This procedure is a non-invasive, 3-in-1 dermatological treatment that extracts and infuses the skin with specialised serums, offering long-lasting results and no downtime. With a Diamond Glow facial, your complexion becomes plumper, with added volume and more hydration. The tone and texture of your skin are also optimised and evened. This treatment is perfect for all skin types, making it an incredibly popular choice for our patients.


An extremely popular treatment with a cult celebrity following, our Hydrafacial procedure leaves your complexion brighter and refreshed, with unclogged pores and a healthy glow you’ll fall in love with. It is the only procedure combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, antioxidant protection and red LED light therapy. In addition, removing dead skin and dirt is not only great for your skin’s health, but it also adds to your youthful appearance.

Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

This treatment is a non-invasive, fractional laser which treats different portions of the skin at a time. With Fraxel Skin Resurfacing, downtime is reduced, so you don’t have to worry about getting the procedure done weeks ahead of an event or special occasion.

The treatment works by causing controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and causes these areas to produce collagen. With Fraxel, you can see a reduction in fine lines and enlarged pores, as well as the improvement of pigmentation issues, scarring, laxity and even melasma. You’ll benefit from rejuvenated luminous skin after this procedure.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

Looking for a youthful and fresh glow in your skin? This non-invasive facial treatment is just what you’re seeking. IPL Photo Rejuvenation, or intense pulsed light therapy, treats skin damage without disrupting the surface, and there is minimal downtime.

The procedure allows light waves to target coloured particles like haemoglobin in broken capillaries and melanin in sunspots and freckles. The result is the improvement of sun-damaged complexion, as well as a reduction of hyperpigmentation. In addition, your skin will also produce more collagen and elastin, which means your complexion will become more even, firmer and smoother.

IS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing

Pioneered in Beverly Hills, IS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing Treatment requires zero downtime and is used to safely and rapidly resurface the skin, reduce fine lines, address problems in your complexion and encourage cell renewal. It’s a multi-step procedure with two professional masques combined with clinical products for better results. Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba and Michelle Keegan swear by this facial treatment, which is designed to guarantee the most efficient results possible. The masques use ingredients like glycolic acid, vitamin A, hyaluronic C acid, antioxidants, aloe vera and niacinamide, all of which are powerful components that rejuvenate the skin and leave it glowing and feeling invigorated.
