1. Wrinkle Relaxers 

Before Wrinkle Relaxers  After Wrinkle Relaxers
Wrinkle relaxers are fairly painless and a very effective way to tackle frown lines, smile lines (nothing's that funny!), crow's feet, forehead wrinkles and smokers' lines. A series of tiny injections containing a naturally-occurring protein extract into facial muscles temporarily block the impulse from the nerve to the muscle. It takes effect in just a few days and  can last up to 4 months. 

Expect compliments like: 'Wow! Your skin looks lovely!', 'Wow! You look exactly the same as you did 20 years ago!' and 'Damn! I never should have let her go!'

Perfect for: School reunions, weddings, running into an ex-boyfriend and just looking fabulous.

2. Underarm Hair Removal

OK, if you haven't already heard of IPL permanent hair removal, prepare to have your mind blown. This stuff works! IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light, controlled flashes of intense filtered light are directed onto the skin. The melanin in dark hair absorbs the light converting it into heat which destroys the follicle. It usually takes around 6 to 8 treatments with sessions 4 to 6 weeks apart. It stings a bit but much less than waxing. 

Expect compliments like: 'Who is your waxer, she's a genius!' and 'Were you born completely hairless?'

Perfect for: Never shaving, bleaching, plucking or hiding your underarms again. Spontaneous waving without embarrassment.

3. Lip Fillers and Cheek Fillers

Lip fillers are one of the most popular treatments at Skin Resus and with good reason. We're not talking Kylie Jenner, a subtle lip augmentation or enhancement can restore fullness to lips, plump up thin lips and treat those tiny little lip wrinkles and smoker's lines. A fine needle is used to inject sterile gel into the lips and along the border and includes a local anaesthetic to take the sting out of it. Treatments last 4 to 8 months. 

Cheek fillers are much the same, the filler is injected with a small needle and reduces signs of ageing, restores facial fullness and lifts facial sagging. 

Expect compliments like: 'I must kiss you, immediately!' and 'I don't know what it is but you look FABULOUS!'

Perfect for: Removing those subtle, yet insidious little ageing signs like thin lips and sagging cheeks. Amazing before and after selfies. #skinresusbeforeandafter

4.  Bikini Hair Removal and Brazilian Hair Removal 

My bikini wearing days are long gone and rather than the Brazilian, I'm cultivating more of a Madagascan jungle down there. But it's not too late for all of you. If you are still messing about with nightmarish six weekly waxing visits over summer, that can all end with 6 to 8 treatments of IPL bikini or Brazilian hair removal. It hurst less than waxing and it's permanent.

Perfect for: Spontaneously grabbing the bathers and heading to the beach - anytime, anywhere forever. 

Expect compliments like: 'Thank you.'

5. Full Face Rejuvenation

If you want to look as though you've been on a holiday at a spa retreat, this is the treatment for you. IPL face rejuvenation is A-MAY-ZING! It removes sun damage, pigmentation, freckles, sun spots, age spots, broken capillaries, rosacea, redness and stimulates the collagen in your skin. All of these little spots leave tired looking little marks on your face, a full face rejuvenation removes them all and plumps the skin at the same time. Giving you an overall healthy glow. 

Perfect for: Removing trouble spots like rosacea and redness. Giving your face a good all over rejuvenation. 

Expect compliments like: 'Hey, beautiful, marry me!' and 'Who is your travel agent? You look fabulous!'
