The skin is double cleansed with the iS Clinical cleanser most suited to your skin type. A sequence of masks are then applied. First is the ‘Fire’ or glycolic masque. It is likely that you will feel heat and tingling whilst this masque is in contact with the skin and whilst it is being removed. Then the ‘Ice’ masque is applied and the skin will calm almost entirely with this rejuvenating masque. Your Practitioner will then apply a range of iS Clinical products after the facial to hydrate, soothe and protect the skin.
Prior to Treatment
To ensure that you receive the best possible results, preparation prior to treatment is a vital part of the process.
- Prepare skin with our recommended skincare regime.
- Avoid waxing or laser for 48 hours prior to treatment.
- If you are using any product/s containing vitamin A, glycolic (or any resurfacing ingredient) as a part of your skin care regime, you are advised to stop using these for three days prior to treatment.
- Please notify the clinic in good time of any medications that you are taking. Taking certain prescription medications (for example, Roaccutane) may mean that you cannot be treated.
- Please notify us if your medical status changes or if you become pregnant (we do not treat pregnant women in the first trimester of pregnancy).
After The Treatment
The Fire & Ice Facial is a ‘no downtime’ treatment. This means you shouldn’t experience any shedding, prolonged redness, irritation or inflammation. However in the immediate hours following the treatment, the skin may look a little flushed. This should subside in approximately 4-6 hours.
How often should I have a Fire & Ice Facial?
We recommend that you have a treatment every four weeks if you are having this facial for anti-ageing purposes. If you have problematic skin, we recommend a treatment every two to four weeks.
