It's the epitome of pampering and honestly, the most luxurious and effective facial I've ever had.
"How old are you? MY mum's 24," says my son's classmate, immediately before my appointment at the new Soho Skin Rejuvenation, Chermside.
Thanks kid for bringing my ageing skin to the front of my mind on my way to be treated to a "Synergy Awakening LED facial".
Apart from the normal process of ageing, past pregnancy hormones and sun exposure have left me with dark pigmentation. To reverse the changes, this LED facial claims to be just what the doctor ordered.
Plus, I get to lie down in the middle of the day.
On arrival, I'm warmly ushered into a peaceful anteroom to complete the typical comprehensive new client form.
With this withdrawal from the bustling shopping centre into the peace of the salon. I immediately start to relax.
The natural timber and matte grey interior are in keeping with Soho's clinical approach that retains a day spa aesthetic. Soho describes itself as: "Where European spa luxury meets state of the art clinical results".
Instrumental music and a vanilla scented candle set the scene.
