In Need of a Post Lockdown Lift?

Try our laser facials which aim to target pigmentation, red veins and rosacea, acne and rejuvenation of the skin.

ResurFace Fractional Laser

This award-winning fractional laser delivers an ablative treatment for dramatic skin resurfacing and rejuvenation thus helping skin appearance, skin texture and the smoothness of the skin. The fractional laser helps deliver similar results as the more aggressive CO2 laser but without any of the downtime making this one of the most ground-breaking and award-winning treatments in the laser industry. The skin resurfacing treatment will even out skin tone, smoothen skin texture with improved skin elasticity, a reduction of wrinkles, reduced pore size and improvement to scars (including acne scars) and stretch marks to the body. Fractional skin resurfacing targets minute sections of the skin with laser light, which penetrates the tissue, causing small columns of thermal damage which in turn stimulates significant collagen renewal. The surrounding non affected areas of skin aid the body’s natural recovery process, allowing dramatic results without significant downtime, giving you the firmness, fullness and natural contoured lift without surgery.

This treatment gives the most dramatic effects of all our laser facial treatments offered here in the clinic.

Post Lockdown Lift

IPL Laser Skin Rejuvenation

IPL is a visible light of various wavelengths which allows skin rejuvenation and the removal of skin lesions with very little trauma to the skin. The treatment is quick, gentle and non-invasive. A handheld treatment head is placed against the skin and pulses of light are delivered through a filter which is selected according to your skin type. The light penetrates the tissue and absorbs into the skin, allowing the internal structures of the dermis to rejuvenate and restore volume to the structures of the skin.

Skin rejuvenation treatments visibly restore the skin giving a fresh, firm muscle definition, increased collagen and elastin, reduced open pores, and lifting of the facial contours to reverse the ageing process naturally. Precisely controlled light pulses are released to target discolouration (sun induced pigment and capillary damage) also creating a youthful, even complexion to post lockdown, mask affected skin.

This treatment is our regular laser facial which over a period of sessions gives you not only fuller and firmer skin but also visibly improves red veins, rosacea and sun damaged skin to complement the rejuvenation effect that can be achieved with IPL technology.

Lynton Lasers’ Illumifacial

The new Lynton Laser treatment has been designed for anyone whose skin exhibits congestion, discolouration and visible signs of ageing. A full treatment plan will be tailored for you to treat your specific skin concerns which aims to improve the appearance, fell and health of your skin. The combination of Lynton’s new patented Illumi peel and the IPL rejuvenation treatment (outlined in the previous paragraph) will provide you with a flawless skin tone, clearer and healthier skin and you will experience an ongoing improvement to the firmness and plumpness of your skin in the following months post -treatment, as new collagen is stimulated. This treatment also gives a flawless ‘filter free’ appearance to your skin.

The Illumi Peel compliments our ResurFACE fractional laser giving you the perfect lift to your skin. We recommend having this two weeks after the fractional laser to enhance your results.

Recommencing Facial Treatments

Recommencing Facial Treatments

On Saturday 15th August we were able to recommence with our facial treatments.

This week’s blog is about our facials and post lockdown skin concerns. Skin concerns such as acne and blemishes can be caused by stress and anxiety – especially through these uncertain times.

Crystal Clear Facial

Our Crystal Clear microdermabrasion is perfect for treating lines and wrinkles, dull and dehydrated skin as well as acne scarring. The crystal clear exfoliates the skin using fine crystals, which gently resurface the superficial layers of the skin. This facial is ideal for anyone who suffers with blackheads and acne as well as the appearance of fine lines and dull and lifeless skin.

Peel and Reveal

The Monu Peel and Reveal has been formulated to suit a variety of skin types and deal with a wide range of skin concerns, for example, the peel, although great for mature skin, is also a welcome treat for anyone suffering with congestion, breakouts, acne, pigmentation and an uneven skin tone. The powerful combination of Glycolic, Salicylic, Lactic and Citric acids deeply exfoliates to loosen stubborn dead skin cells, unblock pores, and firm skin therefore revealing a brighter, more youthful appearance after just one peel.

A-Lift

The A-Lift treatment uses revolutionary nano-current technology (electrical currents so small they are measured in millionths of an amp) that is adjusted to synchronize with the unique natural frequency of your body to begin combating ageing, essentially turning back time at a cellular level. The A-Lift will help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve muscle tone and firmness while enhancing your skin radiance and improving circulation for a more youthful skin appearance.

Promax Face and Neck

The Promax Lipo Radio Frequency facial skin tightening, and contouring system is ideal for people wanting to tighten skin, smooth out fine lines and reduce cellulite on the body.

Radio-frequency has been used for over five years for facial skin remodelling. The heat produced by the Radio-frequency system contracts collagen fibres to produce instant skin tightening. With multiple treatments, collagen production increases to tighten and rejuvenate skin in the treated area. This treatment is great for lower face, jowls, and chins. It is also good for reducing fine to medium lines, especially good around the eyes, for crêpe skin, crow’s feet, and droopy eyes. It can also be used on its own or in combination with other laser or facial treatments.

Post Lockdown Bodies

Following the latest government guidelines, unfortunately, we cannot commence with facial treatments as stated in our last blog. However, we can now focus on our post lockdown bodies!

Post-lockdown tummy?

Slimdown using the power of ultrasound energy to help you achieve the body shape you desire. The Promax Lipo treatment is a totally non-invasive treatment to rid unwanted body fat and reduce the body circumference.

This is a safe and effective procedure which is suitable to treat areas such as the abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Promax Lipo uses ultrasound waves to selectively target fat cells without affecting neighbouring tissue. The fat cells become more permeable after treatment which allows transport of triglycerides (fat) out of the cell.

Post Lockdown Bodies

Cellulite often contains many toxins in the area due to clustered fat cells. This treatment will help with the removal of the softened fat and with connective tissue which can be too short and pull the skin down – giving it the ‘dimpled’ appearance.

This treatment works well with our G5 slimming machine to help ‘spot’ reduce cellulite in the body so when these treatments are used together, they give dynamic results.

Sore shoulders from a bad ‘working from home’ posture?

Here in the clinic, we offer sports massage to relieve shoulder and back pain, together combined with a G5 treatment can produce fantastic results to relieve sore and stiff muscles from the ‘home office’ and returning to the gym.

Need to relax and unwind?

Treat yourself or a loved one to a Swedish massage to help increase the oxygen flow to the blood, release toxins within the body to reduce muscle stiffness, soreness, muscle spasms and relax the body and mind after these stressful few months.

Sick of shaving during lockdown?

We can do the waxing for you using a cool waxing system, which is suitable for even the most sensitive skins.

First Week Back in the Clinic

We have enjoyed our first week back in the clinic and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout. While we have been off, we have been thinking about how we can make the clinic a safer environment for our wonderful clients and the members of our team.

First Week Back in the Clinic

Maximum of Two Clients at a Time

As the clinic reopens, we are asking that all appointments are attended to on your own and that you arrive at the time of your appointment (not early or late) so that we can ensure a full clean up of our treatment rooms in between client appointments and that there is only ever a maximum of 1 client per therapist, with a maximum of 2 clients in the clinic at a time.

Hand Sanitiser & PPE

We will be providing hand sanitiser to everyone as they enter and leave the clinic and will ask that you wear a mask wherever possible. All members of staff will be wearing one too! All the members of our team will also be wearing gloves and protective PPE for all appointments and these will be changed between each client appointment.

Contactless Payment

Our skincare products will still be available to purchase, but we now requesting contactless payments where possible and asking clients to ring up and order products so that we can have them ready for collection at your convenience, as safely and quickly as possible. Social distancing will apply where possible and with reasonable precautions observed in treatments where this is not possible.

Entering & Leaving the Clinic

On arrival we will be asking clients to wait outside the front door until a member of our team greets you. The clinic has also been adorned with social distancing signage, which explains where you must stand when enter the clinic and follow our new one-way system. When you leave the clinic you will now leave through the rear entrance. Door handles will be sanitised after every use.

Our toilet will be still be in use for all clients and will be cleaned in between use. However, we are asking that wherever possible, you use the toilet at home before coming to the clinic.

Accessories and mobile phones are big carriers of bacteria, so therefore please could all clients please remove accessories, e.g. scarfs, necklaces, and jewellery, before entering the clinic. We will also ask you to keep all mobile phones in your handbags or pockets. Paper bags will be provided for our client’s small belongings for the duration of your visit to the clinic.

Recommencing Facial Treatments

We are permitted to recommence facial treatments as of Saturday 1st August. We are asking that clients please bring their own dressing gowns/robes to their appointment for the time being.

We understand that this is still a worrying time for many, so we will still be offering both phone consultations and product deliveries while the clinic is back open. Our very first priority is the safety of our clients and staff, so we will be doing our utmost to ensure we are following all the government’s advice and adhering to our new found COVID 19 safety policy.

Book an Appointment

To book an appointment please call us on 01772 816133 or email info@elainefrances.com. We can’t wait to see you all again.

Acne & The Treatments We Offer

Acne prevention and the treatments we offer here at the clinic to help reduce it:

We are asked regularly by our clients the best way to prevent acne and the types of treatments we have to offer. There are many ways we can help prevent acne and reduce the scarring it leaves behind.

acne treatment

 

IPL laser Treatment

One treatment that we use is our IPL laser (clients must be 18 or over) The heat from the laser sterilises the tissue to prevent further outbreaks while softening and regenerating the scar tissue. The laser also strengthens the skin, which aids natural healing. We recommend a course of treatments for the laser to reduce the acne as much as possible and help to heal the skin completely. Adding a micro dermabrasion to your laser sessions is the perfect way to enhance your results!

Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion

Our Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion treatment system allows us to treat lines and wrinkles and dull dehydrated skin, as well as being an amazing breakthrough treatment for acne scarring and sun damaged skin. Microdermabrasion safely exfoliates the skin using fine crystals, which gently re-surfaces the superficial layers of the skin. This facial is ideal for all skin types and will minimise the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, dull, lifeless, sun damaged skin and acne.

Monu Peel and Reveal

Another treatment which we offer to clients who are under the age of 18 is the Monu Peel and Reveal, however the peel is great for mature skin too! This is good for anyone suffering with congestion, breakouts, acne, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. The powerful combination of Glycolic, Salicylic, Lactic and Citric acids deeply exfoliates to loosen stubborn dead skin cells, unblock pores, and firm skin, revealing a brighter, more youthful appearance after just one peel. The ideal recommendation for the best, long term result is one facial a week for six weeks followed by one facial per month to maintain the fabulous results.

ResurFACE Fractional Laser

Acne scarring is an issue for many acne suffers, our new award winning ResurFACE fractional laser will even out skin tone, smoothen skin texture with improved skin elasticity, a reduction of wrinkles, reduced pore size and improvement to scars, including those from acne. Fractional skin resurfacing works by minute sections of the skin being targeted with laser light. This penetrates the tissue, causing small columns of thermal damage which in turn stimulates significant collagen renewal. The surrounding nonaffected areas of skin aid the body’s natural recovery process, allowing dramatic results with truly little down time.

Welcome to our Blog

Hi everyone,

We hope you are all okay! While we are working from home, we have decided to start writing blogs to provide you with something to read and help with your skincare! As June is acne awareness month our first blog is going to be about acne and what causes it!

Acne: a Common Skin Condition

Are you suffering from acne? You aren’t alone about 95% of people aged 11 to 30 suffer with acne too! Acne is a common skin condition which causes spots, oily skin and can sometimes make the skin hot and painful to touch. Teenagers and young adults are the biggest sufferers when it comes to acne, usually affecting females aged 14 to 17 and males aged 16 to 19 but it is not uncommon for adults aged 30 and older to suffer with acne rosacea.

Hair Follicles

Acne is caused by blocked hair follicles, sometimes caused by sebaceous glands which are tiny glands near the surface of the skin and are attached to your hair follicles. The glands produce oil (called sebum) to stop the skin from drying out. In acne, the glands produce too much and the excess oil binds with dead skin cells and block the follicle.

Teenage acne is usually triggered during puberty due to an increase in testosterone levels – these glands are particularly sensitive to hormones so the increase in testosterone causes an increase in production of the oil. Acne rosacea is caused by a similar change in hormones but is usually due to the menopause in women or the testosterone levels decreasing in older men.

Acne & Spots

There are 6 types of spots which will appear on the skin, some more common than others for acne sufferers:

  • Blackheads which are small black or yellowish bumps that develop on the skin; they are not filled with dirt but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces the colour.
  • Whiteheads have a similar appearance to blackheads but may be firmer and will not empty when squeezed.
  • Papules are small red bumps that may feel tender or small.
  • Pustules are like papules but have a white tip at the centre caused by a build-up of pus.
  • Nodules are large hard lumps formed beneath the surface of the skin which can be tender and sore.
  • Cysts are the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they are large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greater risk of scarring.

The good news is that acne can be reduced and prevented! 😊 Our next blog will be about our IPL acne treatments for our older clients and the Monu Peel and Reveal for young adults and teenagers.

Take care and stay safe xx
