At Nova our aestheticians thoroughly recommend great homecare however we recognise that all skin sometimes need a lift from a professional grade product selection, applied following a comprehensive analysis of the skin.

An aesthetic facial at Nova uses advanced and active skincare containing pharmaceutical grade ingredients that penetrate deep into the skin drive change.

Sometimes known as a medical facial, these luxurious and bespoke treatments select from a range of researched products rather than a pre-set menu, and provide real results that last far beyond the treatment room.

What differentiates an Aesthetic Facial from a Spa treatment?

In short, the difference between aesthetic facials and their spa counterparts revolves around the products used. Aesthetic facials employ cosmeceutical products which are so called for their ability to penetrate beyond the surface and into the dermis, delivering key ingredients for, longer lasting results. 

Whilst many expensive spa and beauty brands have a luxurious feel and calming aromas they are unable to really pass beyond the top layers, the epidermis. For this reason they are excellent are providing a short term glow and skin boost, along with a sense of calm and wellbeing, but unlikely to provide longer term change to the operation and structure of the skin.

What can be treated with an Aesthetic Facial?

• Acne and Oily Skin: The Dermaclear range from the amazing Dermaquest provides an ideal introductory facial treatment for suffers of acne or oil. Using active products containing oil inhibitors and bacteria dissolving ingredients this range provides a much needed deep clean and calms oil and acne inflammation. 

• Aging and Lines: Through application of stem cells, retinol, firming peptides and plant enzymes our facials can be tailored to minimise the appearance of lines, and other signs of aging. With deep penetrating cosmeceuticals the skin can be tightened and boosted. 

• Pigmentation and Melsma Our clarifying treatments work to break down the pigmentation through gentle plant acids and enzymes, and to prevent further pigmentation we utilise safe pharmaceutical grade products to suppress melanin production and pigmentation responses. 

• Rosacea, Redness and Sensitive Skin Delicate cleansers and serums are selected to calm redness, heal skin and prevent flair ups. Active ingredients do not mean irritation, and specific botanicals such as green tea extracts, in our sensitive ranges sooth and visibly reduce the appearance of sensitive skin conditions. 

• Dry and Dull Skin Brightening treatments utilise fruit acids and enzyme for a gentle yet effective exfoliation. Removing dull and dead skin provides instant brightening and softening which is then supported through the application of penetrating nutrients and vitamin C for a long lasting glow.

Our treatments always start with a skin analysis and consultation to establish the correct peel to treat your concern. Following a deep cleanser and appropriate skin preparation a solution is applied to the skin surface and absorbed, before releasing the active acid component, which then works from within the skin. Your aesthetician will assess the progress of this treatment and halt the activity of the solution with a neutraliser when the correct depth has been reached. The treatments will feel tingly and hot, but not unpleasant. All peel and resurfacer treatments are carried out by trained and experienced aestheticians to ensure a safe and effective outcome.
