Am I suitable for this treatment?
Fire and Ice Facials are suitable for all skin types, and are pregnancy, breastfeeding and cancer safe.
Individuals with certain auto-immune diseases, recent facial surgery or who have been on a course of Roaccutane in the last 6 months should not have this treatment. Also, patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy should not have this treatment. Chemical peels should not be used in patients with active cold sores or where there has been a previous reaction to similar treatments.
Is it painful?
In a word, No!
The “Fire” element of the treatment utilises a natural form of Glycolic Acid, and can cause some mild tingling. In men, mild stinging can occur in the beard area due to shaving. However, once this stage of the treatment is neutralised, everything settles down and no discomfort is experienced.
The “Ice” element is rich in hyaluronic acid and Aloe Vera, amongst other botanicals, and imparts a lovely cooling effect on the skin that nourishes and hydrates.
How many treatments do you recommend?
Fire and Ice is a lovely gentle skin resurfacing treatment that is effective if performed on a regular basis. For optimum results we recommend a Fire and Ice Facial once a month with a one month break after six months.
I'm already having regular HydraFacials. Can I have Fire and Ice too?
Fire and Ice work closely with HydraFacial to produce the best results for your skin. Although an effective stand-alone treatment, Fire and Ice can also be combined with HydraFacial treatments to give you the best of both worlds.
What should I do or avoid following a Fire and Ice treatment?
Avoid waxing/laser treatments on the face for 48 hours
Do ensure regular sun protection for at least 4 weeks post-treatment. We highly recommend IS Clinical’s Extreme Protect SPF 30, which is so much more than just a sun cream! In addition to effective sun protection, it contains ingredients that promote DNA repair, improve the skin’s microcirculation and increase collagen synthesis.
Avoid heavy exercise for first 12 hours post- treatment
Avoid “at-home’ exfoliating products for 1 week.
Avoid the use of active skin products for 2-3 days
