Wow My Pores Have Shrunk!

Posted on 4 January, 2020

The Wow Facial has received a phenomenal amount of press over the past year, and I think the reason for that is because it literally does what it says – ‘Wow!’ It is, what I would categorize as a ‘low downtime’ treatment. That means that, once you have had it, you are good to go, no redness, no peeling just glowing, party ready skin, with longer lasting results than your average facial. The Wow Facial is adaptable to suit all skin types for men and women Rosacea or redness Acne or acne scarring Oiliness and enlarged pores Uneven skin tone Dull skin Fine lines and wrinkles  

 

In the Spotlight

The reason it has had so much media exposure?  There is simply no gimmickry, just fantastic results experienced by a plethora of  experienced beauty journalists and bloggers. The Wow Facial was developed by Claire Williams, an aesthetics industry expert who wanted to create a results driven facial to stimulate the skin to the maximum point without creating any ‘unwanted effects’ or ‘downtime’.  

 

Break it Down

There are six stages of skin stimulation in the Wow Facial. Cleanse – getting the skin scrupulously clean is essential for any treatment (or even for application of your home skincare regime). Resurface – a mildly acidic solution is applied to the skin to loosen up dead dry skin cells on the surface. This will feel slightly tingly.

 

Dermaplaning – with the dead dry skin cells loosened, now we get to work with gently scraping them away and taking any soft vellus hair or ‘peach fuzz’ at the same time.

 

The Wow Fusion Device – this innovative gadget combines skin needling with mesotherapy. So whilst the tiny needles stimulate your own collagen and elastin production, the spiral grooves present within each needle deliver a bespoke skin cocktail just under the top layer of the skin. This device is completely comfortable and causes minimal redness. LED light – 20 minutes under the multiple award winning LED phototherapy light works by providing a source of energy for your skin cells so that they start pumping out more collagen and elastin. (the blue light can also be added for those with oily or acne prone skin) Wow Mask time. This hyaluronic acid mask will help settle any inflammation caused during the treatment and ensure you walk out of the door with bouncy radiant looking skin Finally  - don’t leave home without it! An application of SPF will see you on your way regardless of the weather! Not Your Average Facial The effects of The Wow Facial last for an astonishing 3 months. If you are looking for in an ‘in-between pick up’ The Wow Express will fill that criteria – simply a more compact version of the Wow facial.

The Wow Express also allows us to treat during: Pregnancy Breast Feeding Active acne eruptions Active rosacea eruptions  

 

Go Naked

During the festive season, this is a game changer to keep you looking on point when typically many of you are burning the candle at both ends. So whether you are a guy or a gal this treatment will reduce the need to cover your dull skin with makeup!   Added Extras There are couple of other reasons that we can The Wow Facial for that you might be interested to know. So one of them is sweating. So when we are using our magical Wow Fusion device, there is actually a way to help sweating, which involves putting a little bit of Botox into the solution. When using Botulinum Toxin in a solution like this, it is not the same as having your usual wrinkle treatment. Unlike wrinkle injections, these deposits are very superficial and not deep enough to affect the muscle activity, so zero effect on your facial expressions just a less sweaty skin! Pore size is one of the most common questions I am asked in clinic – how can I shrink my pores? The Wow Facial offers a pore shrinking potential unlike any other facial. Whilst the effects will last we always recommend following this up with the ZO Pore Refiner for added impact.
