Have you ever wondered how your skin compares to others of your own age, or how you might look in a few years time, without some serious intervention? A high tech skin analysis technique is available at The Beauty Parlour in Newry that will reveal all that’s good and bad about your skin.
Pauline, the skin analyst from skincare brand Environ, regularly comes into our salons to provide 45 minute consultations. She uses the powerful Visia imaging technology to capture information and assess common problem areas, such as sun damage, brown pigmentation blemishes, capillary damage, wrinkles, scars or imperfections and congested pores.
She will identify goals for treatments and offer solutions to overcome niggling complexion concerns and take years off your appearance, without the need to go under the knife. The skin advisor recommends products for use at home, salon treatments as well as dietary and lifestyle advice, which are aimed at giving the individual clearer, more radiant, even toned, smoother and less lined skin.
The machine’s camera provides a series of images which reveal the extent of each problem and attributes a ‘score’. Clients pay a return visit to the salon after three months, when improvements are graded by comparing a new set of visuals with the originals.
“There are too many empty promises in the beauty world,” says salon owner Gail Kearney. “By using this sophisticated system, we can now prove to our clients that using active skincare products and following our advice makes a measurable and visible difference. We can even artificially ‘age’ your skin to show how you could look in five years without proper skincare.”
Environ Skin Care was developed by South African plastic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes to address the effects of UV radiation, pollution, stress and free radical damage. Environ salon treatments and homecare products feature active, effective ingredients such as vitamin A and potent protective antioxidants, which are scientifically proven to combat environmental and physical ageing of the skin.
"Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff. I always receive professional advice."
