Fire and Ice Resurfacing Treatment at Young LDN – Review
During the winter months, our skin can take a bit of a battering, fiercely cold wind whipping past our faces irritating our skin, a lack of sunshine and dry indoor heat drawing moisture away. It’s no wonder that my own face feels dry and my complexion dull. I was invited to try out the Fire & Ice Resurfacing Treatment at Young LDN, to give my skin the love it needs.
As stated on their website – ‘Pioneered in Beverly Hills and coveted by A-listers globally, the famous fire and ice intensive treatment from iS Clinical is scientifically formulated with the purest pharmaceutical grade ingredients and designed to rapidly and safely resurface the skin, reduce fine lines, address problematic skin and encourage cellular renewal. The treatment includes Rejuvenating Yellow LED’.
Arriving at Young LDN in Notting Hill, I received a warm and friendly greeting, the ground floor was quiet so I marvelled at the quirky decor and decorative artwork on the walls. Shortly after I was taken downstairs into a treatment room to discuss my skin concerns with my beauty therapist Bianca. The treatment started off with a deep cleanse and exfoliation, shortly after my face was covered with an Intensive Resurfacing Masque, formulated with sugar cane extract, Vitamin A & Vitamin B3. This is where the fire comes in, as it does tingle and can sting a little, due to the active ingredients. It didn’t bother me too much, the way I saw it the more active the better.
Next up was the soothing Rejuvenating Masque, formulated with strong antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Grape Seed & Rosemary Extract. While all the goodness seeped into my skin, Bianca gave me a hand and arm massage helping me to further relax and I could feel the tension melting away. Once the massage was over and the mask was taken off, I lay there under a restoring yellow LED light to further boost collagen and stimulate hyaluronic acid and elastin. The treatment finished with cooling massage balls gliding across my face, focusing on lymphatic drainage, flushing away toxins and reducing water retention.
Looking in the mirror afterward, I was delighted with how radiant my complexion looked, my face was glowing, it looked even-toned and my skin felt softer and smoother. The cost of the facial is £149 for 60 minutes, which is on the tad expensive side, but I hadn’t seen my skin glow and look this refreshed in a long time. Sometimes you do have to shell out for such amazing results, your skin will thank you for it.
