Why one-off skin treatments won’t give you optimum results

Having a facial here and there is a nice way to relax and treat your skin to something special. If you want to achieve younger and healthier looking skin for many years to come, here’s why your one off treatments aren’t enough:

It’s a short term fix
Ad hoc facial treatments may be hydrating and soothing your skin in the short term, but you are missing out on the long term benefits of regular advanced treatments. Regular treatments have a cumulative effect: the more you have, the longer the results will last. This is the same whether it be for facials, body treatments such as laser hair removal or body shaping treatments like ChillSculpt; the more you have, the better the result.

You need to up the ante
Our body is very clever and the more we get used to a treatment, the less effective it becomes. You need to slightly increase the intensity as your treatments progress and up the ante to ensure you are getting the best results, for long term benefits.

Keep it regular
Consistent and regular treatments are vitally important to train your skin cells to behaviour in a particular way; with skin rejuvenation, we’re teaching the skin cells to grow back stronger and faster than before. The repetitive process results in a vast improvement and long-term changes to the condition of your skins appearance. With body treatments, it’s the controlled repetitive damage that causes the cells, or hairs to not grow back at all – think fat cells and pesky hairs! The ideal time frame between treatments is generally 4-6 weeks apart, over the course of the year.

It’s costing you money
One off treatments can be expensive, and as you’re not getting the full benefits or results that are available, so will be costing you both time and money in the long run.
