We’re serious about skin and skin care here at Karen Christensen. The beauty team, lead by Karen herself, are industry experts. They receive regular training using the most up to date and effective products and techniques and all are personally motivated to help you achieve the results you want, with the highest standards of safety and discretion. We would call ourselves a clinic, but we want you to feel safe and comfortable and so we won’t – but we’re your little bit of Harley Street right here in the West Country.
Here’s a little about the products and techniques that we use, all of which mean that we have the ability to choose the correct product and technique for you personally, allowing prescriptive facials and bespoke results. The range has been carefully and scientifically selected to ensure that we can help address all skin issues:
Dermalogica is the number one choice of professional skin therapists world wide. When others talk about pampering, beauty or fancy packaging Dermalogica talk about results. Every product is researched and tested by The International Dermal Institute and each skin treatment is specifically designed to address a specific set of concerns, starting with an exclusive FaceMapping Skin analysis. Face Mapping® is a revolutionary, zone-by-zone approach to skin analysis completed by a certified Dermalogica Skin Therapist. You’ll get real answers to your questions and an at-home product prescription that actually works for your skin.
Jan Marini have dedicated over 3 decades to the research and development of the cutting edge technologies used in their products. Working with the world’s leading physicians and research scientists, they have become a respected international skin care authority. The products and treatments cover the 5 step regimen; Cleanse, Rejuvenate, Resurface, Hydrate and Protect.
We offer their award winning Glycolic Acid Peels, simple, safe, non invasive and unbelievably effective. Perfect for people with little time, we call it the ‘lunch time peel’ as it gets maximum results in the shortest time and with no redness or shedding afterwards so you can head straight back to work (or anywhere else that you fancy).
Known as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of Facials, this is still one of the best on the market as it has continually been updated and upgraded to continue to give the unique results that it has been giving for the past 30 years. The revolutionary salon treatments and plant-based products of Guinot epitomise the greatest traditions of French skincare. We offer an exceptional treatment using galvanic and high frequency currents to deep cleanse, rehydrate and speed up cellular regeneration. You will see fantastic results in skin that’s cleansed, refined and revitalised.
The new Ellipse System is a skin miracle machine and a top favourite of our beauty team. It is the safest and most effective treatment on the market for a wide range of skin conditions, including the removal and reduction of unwanted hair and the treatment of many skin complaints including sun damaged, acne and vascular and pigmented skin (thread veins, age spots etc) .
