In this post, beauty therapist Claire discusses the ‘Ormedic Lift’ which is the second of the new facial treatments (IMAGE Skincare Facial Treatments) now on offer at Balwyn’s Luminescence Beauty Therapies.
The Ormedic Lift is appropriate for ALL skin types, specifically unbalanced, teen, irritated or sensitive skins. The name “Ormedic” is a mix of Organic and Medical. This particular treatment is great to kick start you on your Image journey, or for those who prefer to use organic products but are still looking for a high-impact facial. You will leave your treatment feeling radiant and youthful! And the entire Ormedic Range smells absolutely divine!
This facial begins just like every other treatment, with a thorough consultation. Once your skin health has been discussed with your therapist, you will be taken into the treatment room and talked through how to prepare for the treatment. Once in the treatment bed (which is heated and super cosy, by the way!) your therapist will pop a heated wheat pack onto your stomach and make any adjustments to the bed to ensure you stay comfortable and warm throughout the entire treatment.
A thorough cleanse will be performed using the Ormedic Balancing Facial Cleanser, which is a gentle gel formula that foams once water has been added. Your therapist will also have a closer look at your skin during this time to ensure that there are no contraindications that will affect the continuation of your treatment. They will also briefly discuss your skin condition with you and briefly run through the next stages of the facial.
Next, the Ormedic Lift solution is applied to the entire face area. This peel contains a blend of pumpkin, papaya, pineapple and mango fruit enzymes and peptides in an aloe vera gel base, so it smells absolutely amazing! This is left on the skin for around 5 minutes before being removed with warm water and sponges. You may feel a prickling sensation upon application, but this should dull down as the time goes on. Your therapist will have a closer look at your skin after the peel is removed and perform extractions if necessary.
The Ormedic Balancing Gel Masque is applied next, which helps to calm and soothe the skin after the peel. Extra enhancements may also be added to the masque if needed. After around 5-10 minutes this will be removed with a hot towel.
To finish the treatment, an antioxidant facial enhancer is mixed with the Ormedic Balancing Antioxidant serum and massaged into the face and decolletage, along with a selected eye cream, moisturiser and lip treatment. Your therapist will then go through your home care routine and any aftercare instructions that you may need.
