Treatments for the most confident version of yourself
It goes without saying that your skin is important. It covers your entire bod, and it's a great reflector of your overall health. So when it comes to problems and imperfections with your skin, it's best to bite the bullet and get proper, professional treatment.
There are a variety of advanced treatments available. A plethora, in fact. There's the latest and greatest, verse the tried and true; natural or more intensive options. Whatever problems you have with your skin, there is without a doubt a way to fix it. However, with so many different treatments available, it can be difficult to sort fact from fiction to find professionals who are going to work with your skin to provide truly amazing results.
I visited nbskin in North Fremantle. This tucked away little business offers a relaxing and educational experience and I'm still feeling pampered days after. They've also put together some exclusive offers for our readers, so if you feel in need of a little pamper before the Holiday season, or are looking for a great gift, keep reading for the full details.
Nuala at nbskin uses cutting edge technology that works with your body, to heal and support your skin. She works with you to diagnose the underlying problems on your skin and create a treatment plan that targets these areas, using primarily natural products as I discovered on my recent visit.
NB Skin is a home based small business and is run by Nuala Briggs. Nuala studied for three years at the London College of Fashion in London, learning a range of treatments from massage to electrolysis. Since then she has gained over thirty years experience as a therapist and clinic owner. During that time, she has continued to study further, staying up to date in this ever-advancing industry. 'That's what I love about this field,' she says, 'it's forever changing.'
From a little beauty pamper, to in depth cosmetic treatments, Nuala works primarily with skin treatments and cosmetic tattooing, but has a wide range of skills. The great thing about all these treatments is that they work together and using a combination of methods will provide you with the best result. If you are not sure what you're after, you can schedule a consultation and you'll be advised on the best course of action.
On my recent visit, I received the vegan, gluten free facial. This is a great option for a natural facial treatment that is relaxing but also has great benefits for your skin. During the facial, Nuala uses the Societe skincare range, which contain active ingredients. As the name suggests, the facial is 100% gluten and vegan free, so it's perfect for people with allergies or sensitive skin. This treatment utilises the power of enzymes to lift dead cells and gently exfoliate.
To begin with, Nuala will ask some questions about your current lifestyle and eating habits. She says that external treatments always work hand in hand with lifestyle and diet. With a closer look at your skin she is able to diagnose where your problem areas are, from sun damage and even dental issues. This is aided by special lamps, which illuminate the surface of the skin.
The treatment that followed was thorough, taking me through many products, applied to both my face and neck area. Nuala confidently explained what was happening in each step of the treatment, with a knowledge both of how skin behaves and how the products were working with it. As well as gaining the immediate benefits of the treatment, I also left with advice on how to treat my body better every day, and reap the full benefits- healthier, more resilient skin. I took home the cleanser and the prime and defend, the 'start and finish' Sociate products. I recommend both of them as top quality products, and cosmeceuticals (cosmetics that are formulated to work medicinally).
As an extra bonus, Nuala has offered our readers some fantastic offers and discounts. If you've always dreamed of having perfect skin, there's no better time than right now to make it happen. These offers are for a limited time only, but a great idea to purchase for a gift just in time for the holiday season.
