I was lucky enough to visit the PHI Clinic on Harley Street this week. Cold weather, bracing winds and central heating plays havoc with my skin this time of year so I booked myself in for two state of the art facial treatments, a Beauti-PHI peel and Lase MD treatment.
Beauti-PHI peel - Similar to microdermabrasion, the Beauti – PHI Peel involves removing the outer layer of skin using exfoliation to improve its appearance. This 30 minute treatment comes without pain or any downtime, and leaves behind a fresh glow.With the four specially formulated serums, the Beauti – PHI Peel can treat oily and acne prone skin, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and even age spots, on the face and neck.
Lase MD - Lase MD uses cosmeceutical ingredients with a patented delivery system for skin rejuvenation and restoration. This treatment can strengthen and stimulate collagen fibres, creates a better epidermal basal level, and can address some UV-related skin concerns. No downtime is required, and treatment only lasts 45 minutes but can affect wrinkles, skin laxity, and blemishes for brilliant results.
The Clinic in Harley Street is beautiful, all white, very high tech. My practitioner Jenna was warm and friendly and extremely informative.
We did a consultation before going down to the treatment room. I’ve had microdermabrasion in the past and this is basically the same sensation, the Beauti-PHI peel isn’t uncomfortable in the slightest (unless you’re particularly ticklish on the neck!). After the Beauti-PHI peel my skin felt noticeably cleaner and fresher. Jenna then performed the Lase MD procedure, the idea of having a laser might alarm some but this was no worse than any microdermabrasion session I’ve had in the past. A slight tingle and warming of the skin but very comfortable.
Jenna then applied a wonderfully cooling sheet mask to my face and gave me a 10 minute chill time.
She finished by applying my specially formulated Vitamin A serum and voila! Fresh glowing skin. All done, and there’s a slight pinkness to my skin, but that went down writhing 10 minutes. There’s no down time needed, just no hot baths of saunas and no harsh acids to be used for two days.
I’m thrilled with my results and will definitely be attending the clinic again in the near future!
