Our Aestheticians utilise a state of the art skin diagnostic tool to really get to the bottom of why your skin isn’t looking as good as it could. By scanning the Observ® our experts can view a whole host of problems under the skin, which are causing skin issues, and also

Many skin conditions that surface in time originate from the deeper skin layers and are difficult to diagnose with the human eye.
What happens during a skin scan?
Your Aesthetician will ensure all makeup, lotions and SPF is removed from your face and ask you place you face into the scanner. Six photos will be taken using differing lamps, which reveal skin fluorescence by exposing the skin to low levels of UV.
What can be seen with the skin scanner?
The Observ® enables us to see deeper beneath the skin and view problems which are not yet visible to the naked eye but could be in the future and can also be contributing to negatively to current skin appearance. These conditions include:

• Porphyrin in acne & comedones

• Free oil flow

• Plugged pores

• Areas of keratinized skin

• Areas with diminished circulation

• Dehydrated skin

• Vascular conditions

• Rosacea

• Skin irritations

• Areas of lipid-dry skin

• Milia from milia like

• Area with collagen loss

• Sensitive and thinned skin areas

• Wrinkle formations

• Fine skin surface texture

• Fine line patterns

• Microrelief

BDR Acne Treatment (50-90 mins) £120

‍To deeply cleanse and visibly purify problem skin

‍Many of us will experience acne at some stage in our life – it affects men and women of all ages, not just teenagers. Acne bacteria feeds off the sebum, the natural oil in our skin. When the skin produces too much sebum, it mixes with the dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin’s surface and clogs pores, preventing oxygen from penetrating and providing the perfect conditions for acne bacteria to thrive.

‍Our powerful BDR Acne treatment not only targets the inflammation and breakouts that are visible on the skin, it also restores skin back to its healthy, balanced state to prevent further problems.

‍Treatment benefits

‍ • Deeply cleanses and exfoliates

‍ • Purifies the skin of acne bacteria

‍ • Reduces inflammation

‍ • Rebalances moisture levels

‍ • Prevents scar formation

The importance of clean and well exfoliated skin has long been the emphasis of most advanced skin care routines. Without exfoliation skin builds layers of dead cells, harbours acne causing bacteria, and gradually reduces the rate at which it renews, leading to aging and pigmentation changes. Skin peels are one of the most popular aesthetic skin treatments due to the ability to provide controlled depth exfoliating alongside directed treatment of skin concerns.
How do Skin Peels work?
Peels and resurfacers (lighter peels) use acids and enzymes to exfoliate away layers of the skin to reveal fresher, clearer, more youthful looking skin. Ranging from superficial exfoliation to deeper treatment of problem skin, peels and resurfacers harness the power of naturally occurring acids to dissolve the outer layers of skin and treat a variety of skin concerns.

The safe but powerful blend of ingredients in skin peels work to visibly reduce the appearance of open pores, dissolve dead skin cells, target blemishes, acne and pigmentation, and visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
What can Skin Peels treat?
Skin peels produce impressive and lasting results for a variety of concerns. Most commonly treated skin problems treated with peels are:

• Acne and acne scarring
• Hyper pigmentation and age spots
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Dry, coarse tired and dull skin
What happens during treatment?
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.
Which Skin Peels are offered at Nova?
Our Aestheticians use a range of peels and resurfacers, these include:

ZO Stimmulator Peel – A great brightening, pre-party treatment for stimulation of collagen, exfoliation of dead skin for softer smoother skin.
Dermaquest Pumpkin – Harnessing naturally occurring acids found in pumpkin pulp this treatment is ideal for lifting pigmentation, treating fine lines and brightening skin.
Glycolic Acid – A naturally occurring deep penetrating acid, exfoliating skin and proving good overall revitalisation.
Lactic Acid – A gentle and natural acid which leaves the skin brightened and refreshed.
Peptide Vitality – A powerful anti-aging treatment, producing plump and glowing skin, using advanced peptides to fill out lines and stimulate collagen production.
Salicylic Resurfacers and Peels – We utilise a range of varying strengths of salicyclic treatments to treat all degrees of acne and oily skin complaints, control skin inflammation, kill off bacteria and clear congestion.
Jessners Peels – Ideal for acne suffers to clear congestion, remove bacteria and minimise pores.
TCA Peel – An advanced treatment for removing upper layers to smooth away lines and kick start skin regeneration
What Preparation and Aftercare is required?
Preparation varies depending on the type and depth of peel required, along with your skin type. Some treatments may require prior homecare, however we do also have peel treatments available which require no prep and are suitable for most people.

The aftercare also depends greatly on the strength of peel used, and recommend SPF and hydration to get the best results and to protect your newly revealed skin. With many peels we expect some redness after treatment and some flaking and gentle shedding of the outer skin layer in the days following. After this process your skin will become noticeably softer and fresher looking.
