How does the illumiFacial work for uneven skin tone?
The illumiFacial is a 4 Stage treatment.
STAGE 1. CLEANSE: The first step to achieving clear, healthy, radiant skin will involve a deep cleanse, using a specialist formulation to remove any impurities from your skin.
STAGE 2. TRI-FRUIT ACID PEEL: A unique Tri-Fruit Acid Lynton Fruit Peel will be applied to your skin, for between 3-10 minutes. The peel resurfaces skin texture and decongests pores, priming the skin ready for stage 3 of the illumiFacial.
STAGE 3. LYNTON IPL: Post fruit peel, your skin will be at it’s optimum condition for the application of the award winning Lynton Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. This works by both stimulating collagen and targeting any discolouration on your skin, eg. freckles, pigmentation, vascular breakouts, general redness – making it perfect for uneven skin tones. In most cases, the results are instant, providing you with dramatically clearer and firmer skin.
STAGE 4. HYDRATE & PROTECT: To help maximise your results, a trio of specialist serums will be applied to your skin post-IPL, helping to soothe, regenerate and protect your skin.

Meet the Lynton 3Juve System
Lynton 3Juve skin system is one of the most effective and safe skin treatment systems available in the industry. I love Lynton for their incredibly high standards and results, which come from over 25 years being the industry leader. They our so good that our own NHS use their lasers in clinical practice.
IPL laser treatment is the most effect way to treat uneven skin tone and address pigmentation and vascular skin conditions. Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found
within your pigmented areas on your skin. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of
the melanin-rich cells. So like magic, they are broken down.
Prior to having a treatment for the illumiFacial, you will need to have a consultation and patch test.
A typical course of treatment is 6 treatments carried out 4 weeks apart.

My goal is to help you to manage your skin, improve your well-being and energy levels, plus learn how to look after your skin for the long term, in a simple, sustainable way – with that little bit of luxury that we all deserve!
I know that sometimes the thought of making changes to our routines and lifestyle can be daunting, but I promise you there’s nothing radical here, it’s about helping you to create small, incremental changes for the long term. I have nearly 15 years experience as a coach, helping individuals to achieve their goals, so rest assured I will be there to help you through your transformation.

Some frequently asked questions
Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.
With vascular conditions such as thread veins or broken capillaries, the laser targets the blood vessels, causes them to be destroyed. They then break down as part of the natural healing process in the skin.
The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist. Large, dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are superficial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles.
The following are contraindications to IPL and Fractional / Resurfacing laser:
Sun tan / use of sun beds or fake tan / use of tanning injections / any other

With the illumiFacial, the results are often instant – leaving you with visibly clearer and more youthful skin. Most people have very little side effects, only noticing brighter skin, seeing significant improvement in uneven skin tone. The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post treatment. Any pigmentation or vascular lesions may darken and may appear more obvious before they fade and ‘flake’ away. Sometimes an initial whitening of the area is seen which quickly fades and the pigment gradually fades over the following few weeks.
The skin that surrounds the pigmented lesion may become red immediately after treatment. Most people experience no other side effects and the redness usually disappears within hours to a few days. Very rarely a small blister may form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.
A course of 3-6 illumiFacial treatments are recommended, at 4 to 6 week intervals.
