So, on Tuesday I was minging. No, I was. I was tired, jet lagged and grumpy. So, when the lovely girls at Flipside PR suggested a relaxing treatment at Court House Clinics it really couldn’t have been better timed.
Court House Clinics are a medical doctor led clinic group and offer both surgical and non surgical led treatments - after first opening in 1998 they now have 10 branches in the UK – I visited the Bournemouth clinic.
After filling in some forms along with a warm welcome, a skin analysis was done in a machine you basically stick your face in (kind of like the ones that tell you if you have sun damage) and it was determined I have some dry areas of skin (probably dehydration from my recent flight). An Omnilux Light treatment was prescribed – or ‘Omnilux revive LED – photon absorption therapy’ to give it its full name! It is a totally natural method of light therapy that uses a combination of pure, visible red and infra red light to re juvenate the skin by stimulating skin tissue to soften lines and aid tissue oxygenation and detoxification. After cleansing the red light was shone directly on my face for around 30 mins (I think, it was so relaxing I nearly fell asleep). At first it was very bright but after a few minutes it was actually rather soothing and I was of course given mini goggles to protect my eyes. I was also given a lovely hand massage at which point I probably started snoring!
After the light therapy, a Priori Coffeeberry Natureceutical skin peel was applied to achieve optimum results from the light treatment. I have always liked the thought of skin peels and I LOVE exfoliating, but the thought of a chemical peel scares me! This is the perfect alternative – using Coffeeberry which is one of nature’s most potent botanicals and three times more powerful than green tea as an antioxident. Coffeeberry is rumoured to deliver powerful anti aging benefits and I could wait to give it a try! The peel was applied and left for 10 mins to work its magic before being cleansed off and a Coffeeberry treatment applied. I felt a slight tingling during the treatment but this soon passed after a couple of minutes.
I was suprised at how, well, good my skin looked after both treatments. It just looked less dry and more supple as well as feeling SO smooth. I forced myself off the treatment couch and back into the cold Bournemouth night - when I got home The Boy even noticed how nice my skin looked. It’s now two days on and I’m still really pleased with the results - my skin feels smooth and The Wrinkle even looks slightly reduced. I would absolutely recommend both these treatments to anyone that needs a skin pick me up or just a pampering session. The girls at Court House Clinic in Bournemouth were also so friendly and professional.
I did pick up some info about botox… but that decision is one for another day. Right now I’m enjoying the results and I would definitely return. Find out more info about either treatment or locate your nearest Court House Clinic here.
