There are many undeniable truths in life. Unfortunately, ageing is one of those inevitable consequences Father Time has waiting for all of us. I mean it must be “father” time surely? Mother Nature would never be so much of a bitch that she would saddle us with menopause and wrinkles? That isn’t very sisterly! But, either way the ageing process happens, rich, poor, fat or thin it is not something that is easily avoided or is it?
As an aficionado of all things that support age avoidance I like to think I have seen everything the world of aesthetics has to offer. In the name of staying young I have thoroughly brutalised by body! I have lost count of how many times I have shown up for the afternoon school run looking like I’d had a fight with a cheese grater. I know you are thinking I must have something wrong with me to punish my skin in the name of vanity literally at every opportunity. The answer is possibly with a “but”… I don’t feel 47 years old! Not in body and most definitely not in mind. So, what is wrong with wanting to look the way I feel?
I am obviously always on the hunt for the best potion or procedure to help further the cause of age avoidance. So, hearing a rumour about a new facial that involved six quite aggressive treatments in one sounded like just the kind of exquisitely painful torture I could use! It must be painful, right? But, the reality is they have each and every element down to such an exact science that the reality is ultra-luxury and so relaxing! But, the clue in what the experience would be like was in the name, WOW Facial.
The consultation itself is an opportunity to learn about what your individual skin needs. This is what is unique about higher end skin care. The treatments are tweaked to your needs.
The WOW experience starts with the resurfacing of the skin using a gentle peel that leaves you smooth and glowing without a hint of peeling or redness. The second stage is the “Dermaplaning”. This in itself is an amazing treatment using a surgical scalpel that physically exfoliates the skin along with removing any peach fuzz you have on your face. The next treatment is using what is called the “Wow” gun which superficially injects Hyaluronic and Succinic Acids to stimulate your collagen and elastin. The fourth stage in the WOW experience is the super SciFi Led mask which looks straight out of Star Trek. It uses blue, red and near infrared lights to further stimulate your collagen and elastin. Just when you think that you cannot become any more relaxed they put the signature WOW mask on your face before finishing with a hydrating spritz of Wow Spray to protect your skin following the treatment.
The entire experience screams of pure luxury. Should you have these treatments separately, it could easily set you back more than a £1000. However, a Wow Facial has been set at a much more reasonable £250 no matter where in the country you are having the treatment. So, you can have the Harley Street treatment no matter where you live.
The outcome for my skin was a healthy glow and a ready for Instagram filtered look without the filter. I cannot wait to have another Wow experience!
