Do you ever get times when you feel less like a Gucci scarf and more like a washed out dish towel? Well that’s been me for the last few weeks, my skin has just not been on top of it’s game. I think that’s the case for a lot of us this time of year (and the very changeable Northern Irish weather certainly doesn’t help), which is why I was delighted to be asked along to the Martina Collins Dental & Skin clinic in Belfast to try one of their Luxury Intraceutical Oxygen Facial Treatments. The clinic provides dental services such as veneers, teeth whitening and teeth straightening, as well as high end cosmetic skin treatments.
As a busy mum I rarely get time to myself and when I do it’s usually to run around Tesco, so this was a real treat. I was welcomed to the gorgeous clinic on the Lisburn Road by Clinic Manager Lyndsay, she was so friendly and explained a little about the clinic and about the treatment itself. They are only one of two companies who offer this treatment in Northern Ireland so I felt really special! All of their staff are highly skilled, highly trained and the clinic works to really high standards.
I then went on into the treatment room and met the lovely Kirsty, who explained what the treatment is about. In a nutshell it’s 3 steps Revive, Replenish and Protect. The Revive Serum is applied to the face along with oxygen through what looks and feels like a little airbrush. It’s then followed by the Replenish and Protect Serums. It was AMAZING. The facial itself was so relaxing and my skin felt like it was having a really big drink! After half of my face was done she let me have a little peep and the difference was immediately noticeable and when it was all done my skin was so soft and plump. She even did a little work on my scar from my cancer surgery which was really sweet of her and I really appreciated it. After receiving some little samples I was all done. The treatment itself took about an hour but I could have stayed all day.
It was an absolute pleasure to spend the afternoon here, it’s warm and friendly as well as having a really high end feel. The girls are all really approachable and I would highly recommend this clinic and this treatment if you need a little pick me up. We are off to Paris on Monday and I am definitely feeling more confident about my skin.
