In this post, beauty therapist Claire discusses the ‘The MAX Stem Cell Facial’,  a NEW skincare line! IMAGE Skincare Facial Treatment now available at Luminescence Beauty Therapies in Balwyn.

What is the MAX Stem Cell Facial?

Briefly, the MAX Stem Cell Facial treatment is a luxurious facial that aims to correct, prevent and nourish the skin, targeting fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dull and sallow skins.  It can be customised for almost all skin types.

The first step – Consultation

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!), a heat pack will be placed across your lower stomach and any adjustments made to the bed ensure that you stay comfortable throughout the treatment.

The Cleanse

A thorough cleanse will be performed using the MAX Stem Cell Facial Cleanser, which is an acid, sulphate and paraben free gentle cleanser used to balance and optimise the skin’s pH levels.  A second cleanse is performed with the Iluma Brightening Exfoliating Powder, which is a super gentle polishing powder containing coconut milk, pumpkin enzyme and lactic acid to gentle remove excess oil and debris from pores.  Steam may also be used at this point before removing all products with a hot towel.  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.  The condition of your skin and the next stages of the facial will also be discussed.

Application of Peel Solution

Your Therapist will then select either the Ormedic Lift Solution OR the Signature FaceLift Solution, depending on your skins needs.  This is applied to the entire face and massaged in for a few minutes before being left to rest for a further 5 minutes and removed with warm water and sponges until no activity is felt on the skin.  Extractions may be performed if necessary.

Professional the MAX Stem Cell Products

Some of the professional products used during the MAX Stem Cell Facial Treatment.

Facial Massage

The next part is usually everyone’s favourite – the massage!  And don’t worry if you fall asleep during this phase as most people do!  A Hydrating Facial oil and stem cell enhancement are used to perform relaxing massage movements over the entire face, neck and décolletage area for around 10-15 minutes.

Facial Masque

After the massage, it is time for the masque!  Depending once again on your skins needs, your therapist will select either the MAX Stem Cell Masque or one of the Bio-molecular Sheet Masques.  This is also a great time to add on some LED therapy to further enhance your treatment!  These masques can stay on the skin for anywhere between 10-20 minutes.  The MAX Stem cell masque will be removed with a hot towel, and the sheet masque will be removed and any excess serum massaged into the skin.

Finishing Product Application and Home Aftercare

To finish the treatment, the MAX Stem Cell Serum and the MAX Stem Cell Crème are massaged into the face and décolletage.  This is followed by an eye crème or gel and lip treatment.  Your therapist will then go through your home care routine and any aftercare instructions that you may need.
