The perfect gift for yourself or someone special
A beautiful relaxed professional salon environment
I was invited to experience a facial at Soho Skin Management recently and I must say, I was really looking forward to the opportunity. One visit to their website shows they are quality skin and facial therapists.
If you love a good pampering experience that gets results, or you have a special occasion coming up, or maybe you're just not happy with the look and feel of your skin then read on because Soho is definitely well worth a visit. With amazing massages, body scrubs and other packages as well, this is a great Mother's Day, Father's Day or birthday idea for a special person in your life.
Like many people, I form an opinion as to the surroundings as soon as I walk in. The Soho Skin Management boutique does not disappoint. The rooms manage to easily fall into a happy balance between skincare professionals and serene harmony.
Enjoy the latest skin technology in serene surroundings
The owner of the clinic, Maree, is a para-medical skin therapist and facialist, who over the years has designed many amazing skin treatments, dedicated to improving the health, look and feel of your skin, whilst providing a total pampering experience. She has treated local celebrities and prominent Brisbane personalities because she's known for getting amazing results.
I had the non-surgical facial rejuvenation. This treatment is Maree's signature treatment. It provides an instant ongoing facial rejuvenation with serious results in fading pigmentation, smoothing out pores, fine lines and wrinkles, healing scar tissue as well as speeding up skin renewal to encourage a firmer and more youthful complexion. As I have only ever had product-based facials, I wasn't sure what to expect when she told me she'd be using ultrasonic blade deep pore cleansing machine, sonophoresis infusion, LED light therapy and a micro-current skin firming machine.
The treatment takes 1 and 1/2 hours and is a pleasant assault on the senses. After experiencing an array of smells, textures and skin refining methods I was left relaxed and eager to find out what my face would look like. Half expecting a lot of redness and blotchiness that normally occurs after a facial, I approached the mirror and was pleasantly surprised. My skin was as smooth as a baby and beautifully white and clear.
This was honestly the most amazing facial I've ever had. I had instantly lost one or two tiny crowsfeet around my eyes, and my skin was just so smooth.
The latest and best products are used and are for sale
Maree has many different treatments including scar, acne and wrinkle treatments, relaxation massages, scrubs and total body packages. She has been operating in Brisbane for 20 years and really is Brisbane's best kept secret.
Although Soho gets a large clientele from people wanting to look younger and more radiant for their special occasion, Maree is not just about a one off facial treatment. She thrives on assisting people with problem skin, scars and pigmentation to go through a process of healing in order to feel better about themselves. She is results driven, working with your skin to help it heal and promote new cell growth. I was truly amazed with the way my skin felt, and has continued to feel, after my treatment at the Soho clinic.
This is not just for women. Men who want to look and feel younger or have problem skin make up a large part of Soho's customers.
Along with the amazing face and neck treatments, Soho also specialises in non-surgical thigh reduction, back acne treatments, non-surgical breast lift and glycolic arm scrub and AHA peels, to name a few. Check out the website for the full range of packages.
This clinic specialises in total body experience, providing an amazing concoction of smells, scrubs, textures and other sensory delights, leading to fantastic results. A Soho session has all of the serenity of a holistic massage and facial centre, with the results only available from a skincare professional.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who wanted to treat themselves, heal problem skin, or is looking to give a total rejuvenation gift to that special someone. They sell skin care products over the counter as well as online, and have regular specials on their website.
Brisbane's best kept secret is at Wavell Heights, just a short 15 minute drive from the Brisbane CBD. Located at 194 Edinburgh Castle Rd, Wavell Heights, Soho Skin Management clinic is easy to find and has plenty of street parking. Ring them on 1300 21 SOHO to make an appointment or book online.
