Skin Aspirations

Being someone who’d never experienced a facial a year ago I’ve come to love them and learning about the different treatments, new systems and technology used for your face. Through the process I’ve learnt an incredible amount about skincare, my skin and what I should be doing with it.

My latest visit was to Skin Aspirations, a special little treatment clinic that’s nicely tucked amongst the South Kensington / Knightsbridge Shopping streets.
I was invited in to try their signature DMK Enzyme Therapy treatment and I arrived not knowing a thing about what I had opted in for (sometimes I find this is the best way).

The treatment takes around 1 hour 45 and consists of 13 steps! Yes, 13.
I’ve listed them below for reference;

Deep Pore Cleanse – to deeply cleanse the skin and pores
Desquamate – a gentle exfoliant to loosen and remove dead skin cells.
Sebum Soak – to soften the hardened sebum plugs in the pores which prepares the skin for extractions.
Extractions
Epitoxyl – detoxifying tonic, which deeply cleanses pores by evaporating toxins
Melanotech drops – revises uneven skin tone, dark spots, pigmentation.
Fibromax Vitamin C powder – is an exclusive formula of liquid droplets encapsulated in Silica particles. These encapsulated droplets form a dry, free flowing powder that is predominantly liquid. This powder will remain stable under ordinary temperatures or pressure. However, an increase in temperature above 30 degrees Celsius combined with gentle friction will loosen the links between the Silica particles, breaking the shell and releasing the liquid inside. It works like mesotherapy without a syringe. Tones, tightens, brightens. Vit C is used by fibroblast cell in the production of collagen and acts as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger to protect skin.
Enzyme masque #1 – the signature DMK product which enhances your skins capacity to function optimally. This is the main part of the facial. Increases blood and lymph flow to the skin.
Melanotech drops – revises uneven skin tone, dark spots, pigmentation.
Beta gel – to address reactive, irritated or inflamed skin.
Direct delivery Vitamin C serum – key vitamin for the production of collagen which gives skin its firmness.
Eye tone serum – to treat fine lines as well as dark circles or puffy skin under the eyes.
Herb and Mineral Mist – it helps the oils and crème to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Seba E – together with Herb and Mineral Mist re-establishes the protective acid mantle and promote barrier repair by replicating the natural way skin secretes oil.
Acu Moist – non-greasy, light moisturiser with spf.

Whilst the Enzyme Masque was midway through its process I had a peek in the mirror and had the biggest shock, not expecting to see what I would look like in 30 years time! The masque had formed a tight layer on my skin that you can see in my images and the experience is bizarre but wonderful. I had felt nothing like it before and couldn’t stop laughing for a good 10 minutes (I haven’t scared you with too much of a bad image but it became even more prominent)!

 

The overall treatment was an absolutely wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone who wants to try something a little different or just take good care of their skin! I’m going to have to go back and have it again as the positive difference it made to my skin was unmistakable and not only immediately but for the following few weeks.
