ADVANCED FACIALS

Advanced facial treatments offer a total bespoke skincare experience, delivering fantastic results by helping support your general skin health and improving the skin barrier function. In particular when paired with a recommended daily skincare regime to help condition the upper layers of the epidermis, these treatments can help balance oil production, calm rosacea/sensitivity, reduce inflammation/ breakouts, improve skin texture, visible pores and support further treatment of areas of hyperpigmentation. 

A smoother complexion with reduced blemishes and an overall improved skin tone, will provide you with a natural glow, the ideal base for light make-up and even the confidence for you to go make-up free and feel great. An advanced facial will help increase your sense of wellbeing and is the perfect treatment for you to invest in yourself and relax with an expertly curated hands-on facial

Aesthetic Technology / Combination Facials

The aesthetic technology and clinical products I use in treatment includes, micro-needling (collagen induction therapy), radiofrequency skin tightening, Dermalux LED phototherapy alongside skin resurfacing/ chemical peel application 

I have carefully chosen these for their well-documented efficacy, ability to deliver excellent rejuvenating results and their low /non-invasive application and superior performance when used in a combination facial service using multiple aesthetic technologies in one facial to target multiple areas of concern

All my treatments protocols have been developed by myself in line with BABTAC professional standards as effective cosmetic (not medical) skin health and rejuvenation techniques, to support and maintain a healthy protective skin barrier and optimise the natural protective functions of the skin, via the process of ‘renew and repair’ on a cellular level

My client health and safety are paramount, which is why I only operate within the parameters of my profession and my understanding of skin science and physiology. Your suitability for my aesthetic technology and combination facials and your recommended treatment schedule, will be discussed during an initial skin health assessment and will be based on your skin type/condition and desired skin health outcomes

Micro-Needling 60 mins from £90

Micro-Needling is a well-documented and respected rejuvenating cosmetic skin procedure, that can help to optimise your skin cell function, resulting in greater overall skin strength and density.

It has many skin health benefits stimulated via the skins natural wound healing response, such as an ability to trigger release of epidermal growth factors, upregulating cellular turnover, helping to strengthen the structure of the epidermis and improve the overall barrier function of the skin by upregulating production of the skins natural moisturising factors. This improvement in cell function and regulation can subsequently support a more even melanin pigment distribution within the skin’s epidermal layers, improving uneven skin tone, such as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and pigmentation issues as a result of sun damage

Micro-needling can also exert a positive influence on the dermis (the deeper structural layers of the skin), by stimulating fibroblast activity via the wound healing response. Fibroblasts (and indirectly the keratinocytes of the epidermis) are the cells in our skin that are responsible for producing both elastin and collagen that form the structural/supporting foundation to our skin matrix. Micro-needling can also be useful in assisting the delivery of beneficial active ingredients such as amino acids and hyaluronic acid deeper into the skin than just topical application alone

Performed in the correct manner, with good technique, strict hygiene and following a thorough skin consultation, you can expect to see skin transforming results from as few as three to six treatments spaced two to four weeks apart, depending on the desired treatment outcome. Successful reduction of some types of acne scarring may require enhanced treatment depending on their type, age and location and this can be discussed during your consultation.

Radio Frequency / Skin Tightening

SINGLE SESSION 45 MINS £45

4 SESSION COURSE £165

8 SESSION COURSE £310 

Part of the natural skin ageing process is the almost certain appearance of fine lines and skin laxity, associated with the combined loss and reduced synthesis of collagen and elastin fibres as we age from within the skin. How can we further give our skin a helping hand to look it’s best and to help maintain its supporting structure and maintain a firmer more toned skin appearance?

Radio Frequency skin treatments can help to initiate both mechanical and biochemical effects within the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin, that lead to the shortening and folding (firming) of collagen fibres via heating of the skins tissue and a longer-term collagen remodelling via new collagen formation (neocollagenesis), a direct response to the skins natural wound healing process

Radio Frequency is a superb non-invasive, comfortable skin treatment with very little or no downtime, which is capable of improving both skin laxity and the facial contours, in particular those facial structures on the lower third of the face such as the jawline, nasolabial folds and the skin of the neck, but can also give visible results on the upper face, periorbital and brow areas. It is a skin tightening treatment modality that utilises a specific frequency oscillating (radio wave) energy to produce gentle heating of the skin tissues, to impart a skin tightening effect on both the surface and underlying structures of the skin

Due to its non-invasive nature, thermal collagen remodelling via Radio Frequency is an effective service to perform alongside other skin health treatments in an advanced technology/combination facial, such as superficial skin peels and cosmetic micro-needling to help achieve an overall rejuvenating and skin strengthening effect, that continues to build over time when combined with recommended home skincare routines and has the ability to stimulate a gradual collagen building and preservation effect known in the skin treatment world as “Collagen Banking”. Radio Frequency sessions are available to book online and if you have any questions on how this type of treatment might benefit you, please contact me and we can arrange a complimentary, no obligation skin health assessment to help you get the most from your skin health investment

Combination Facials

MULTI-STEP ADVANCED TREATMENT

When combination is everything, helping you achieve all your desired results when treating overall skin health with effective skin rejuvenation 

Using combined aesthetic technologies and clinical skincare, I am able to create a bespoke multi-step advanced treatment facial to work on more than one specific skin concern or condition. A treatment that can exert a synergistic effect on both the epidermis and superficial dermis with fantastic results. These multi-step advanced treatments can help reduce the visible effects of skin conditions such as (this list is not exhaustive), inflammation and redness in sensitive/rosacea skins, calming/reducing breakouts in acne prone congested skin types, smoothing fine lines and improving skin texture and hydration in dry skin types and increasing overall hydration in dull/dehydrated skin types, plus all skins will benefit from the reparative skin barrier effects these aesthetic technologies can impart

Testimonials

What They Say

The facial I had at Beauty Hobo was therapeutic and uplifting. I was glowing for days afterwards.

Hannah

Over the years I have taken her advice on my skin condition on my face (rosacea), and even dropped my expensive IPL treatments to go down the retinol peel route with Laura. My skin is better than it’s ever been, and I now receive comments on how good my skin looks- something I never thought I’d get! I can also honestly say she does the most amazing facials which are super relaxing. I’m not a person who is easily impressed, and I very rarely leave reviews- but I just felt I had to shout it from the rooftops if it will help anyone else suffering from rosacea.

Kat

I have been a client of The Hobo for a few years now. The facials are totally awesome, affordable with well-researched quality products, that do exactly what The Hobo says they will. I absolutely recommend Laura to anyone who wishes their skin to be the best it can be…….she is always researching and doing additional training. She is approachable and always willing to explain the products, techniques and valuable aftercare advice.
