Cosmeceutical Facials

...are all about Results, Results, Results

Cosmeceutical refers to the combination of ‘cosmetics and pharmaceuticals’. Cosmeceuticals are cosmetic products with biologically active ingredients purporting to have medical or drug-like benefits. Dermatological research proves that the bioactive ingredients used in cosmeceuticals have benefits beyond the traditional moisturiser.

If you want serious results for your skin using active ingredients & advanced skin care treatment techniques, we recommend the Cosmeceutical Facials.

Cosmeceutical Facial Treatments

The 'cosmeceutical' label applies only to products applied topically, such as creams, lotions, and ointments. The professional cosmeceuticals used in facials are far stronger than what is available for retail and have to be administered by a trained professional.

Cosmetic skin care products only serve to cleanse and beautify, whereas cosmeceuticals will alter the structure and function of the skin. Let’s take a look at some of the ingredients and the science behind why they work..

Where traditional cosmetics would only penetrate your skin by 0.4% ,they look and feel lovely, but do not penetrate the skin and give actual results. They serve to cleanse, pamper and beautify.

Cosmeceutical products will deliver their ingredients more than 20% into your skin and alter the structure and function of your skin. You get dermal activity in the skin and get physical and visible results. They change the behavior of your skin and do what they state to do!
