Facial Treatments

There are many different types of facial treatments, so it’s important to learn more about each type so that you can choose the best one for your skin. There are numerous different types of facial treatments:

  • Microdermabrasion
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing
  • Chemical Peels
  • Laser Skin Rejuvenation
  • ENVY Facial
  • HydraFacial
  • IPL Photo Rejuvenation
  • IS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing

We aim to explain the different types of facial treatments you can get and their benefits, which will help you to narrow down your choices and make the best decision.

Face Skin Cleaning

First of all, we’ll start with a question many people wish to know: are facial treatments actually good for your skin? Even if you don’t suffer from hyperpigmentation or acne, your skin can benefit from being pampered through a facial treatment that can keep it healthy, glowing and free from future issues. In addition, receiving a facial treatment from a professional will help you to gain a deeper understanding of your skin.

Plus, who can deny the de-stressing and relaxing side-effects that come from getting a facial treatment?

Facials will cleanse your skin from pollutants, which will help to rejuvenate it and improve its texture and tone. Also, these treatments increase the blood flow to the face, which translates to healthier cells; after all, improved blood circulation means more oxygen and nutrients!

Different Types of Facial Treatments

There are many different types of facial treatments available, so it can be daunting to choose the right one for you. Some of the most common skin procedures you can undergo include:


This type of facial is ideal for anyone looking to remove age spots and light acne scarring.

Microdermabrasion buffs away the top layers of your skin, which results in the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, age spots, blackheads and enlarged pores, just to mention a few of its benefits. A handheld instrument sprays small crystals on your complexion, which then exfoliates your skin when suction is used to vacuum the exfoliated dead cells. Your skin may be a little red and irritated after the treatment but, ultimately, you’ll benefit from refreshed, youthful and glowing skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

A laser skin resurfacing procedure removes the outer layers of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen, as well as the production of new cells. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face and neck.

Chemical Peels

These types of facials are typically used as anti-ageing treatments to rejuvenate the complexion. This is done by correcting skin texture irregularities and to even the skin tone. The chemical peels come in varying degrees of strength and use different types of acid in their chemical solution.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

This wrinkle removal treatment uses infrared light to tighten the skin. This eliminates the need for surgery, which means no anesthesia and no downtime. Laser skin rejuvenation targets the layers beneath the skin’s surface with heat, which stimulates the production of collagen and tightens the skin.

At The Fantazia Aesthetic, we offer a wide range of facial treatments that are perfect for many different patients. This means you will receive the best treatment for your skin.

We advise that you discuss your needs with a professional, who will then help you to make the right decision – this is because certain facials are best suited for some types of skin instead of others, which means you may not get the result you’re looking for if you select the ‘wrong’ treatment.

Take a look at what our facial treatments can do for you:

ENVY Facial

This procedure is a non-invasive, 3-in-1 dermatological treatment that extracts and infuses the skin with specialized serums, offering long-lasting results and no downtime. With an ENVY Facial procedure, your complexion becomes plumper, with more volume and more hydration. The tone and texture of your skin are also optimized and evened.

This treatment is perfect for all skin types.


An extremely popular treatment with a cult celebrity following, our HydraFacial procedure leaves your complexion brighter and refreshed, with unclogged pores and a healthy glow you’ll fall in love with.

This treatment also removes dead skin and dirt, which further adds to the youthful appearance of your skin. The HydraFacial is the only procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, antioxidant protection and red LED light therapy all in one.

This medical-grade facial includes not only deep cleansing and pore extraction, but also lymphatic drainage massage techniques that will purify your skin.

Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

This treatment refers to a non-invasive, fractional laser which treats different portions of the skin at a time. With Fraxel Skin Resurfacing, downtime is reduced, which means you don’t have to worry about getting the procedure done weeks ahead of time.

The treatment works by causing controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and causes these areas to produce collagen. With Fraxel, you can see a reduction in fine lines and enlarged pores, as well as the improvement of pigmentation issues, scarring, laxity and even melasma. You’ll benefit from rejuvenated luminous skin after this procedure.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

Looking for a youthful and fresh glow in your skin? This non-invasive facial treatment is just what you’re seeking. IPL Photo Rejuvenation, or Intense Pulsed Light therapy, treats skin damage without disrupting the surface; there is minimal downtime.

The procedure works by allowing light waves to target coloured particles like hemoglobin in broken capillaries and melanin in sunspots and freckles. The result is the improvement of sun-damaged complexion, as well as a reduction of hyperpigmentation. Your skin will also produce more collagen and elastin, which means your complexion will become more even, firmer and smoother.

IS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing

Pioneered in Beverly Hills, IS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing Treatment requires zero downtime and is used to safely and rapidly resurface the skin, reduce fine lines, address problems in your complexion and encourage cell renewal. It’s a multi-step procedure with two professional masques combined with clinical products for better results.

At The Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer a number of highly effective non-surgical facial treatments for those looking to improve the look and feel of their skin. While facials may seem like an indulgence for some or some luxury reserved for special occasions, the truth is that they are one of the most important treatments you can invest in.

We understand it can be challenging to navigate the world of aesthetic treatments and understand which facial procedure is the best for your skin.

What is the HydraFacial?

The patented spiral tip of the HydraFacial Vortex-Fusion® serum delivery system and HydroPeel® is what truly sets the HydraFacial apart from other procedures.

How soon will I notice results?

The HydraFacial produces immediate and instantly visible improvements to the skin that you can see and feel after every visit.

How long does the HydraFacial treatment take?

With each small injection, an initial but short sting may be felt. Your skilled and experienced aesthetic practitioner will provide injections using very tiny needles. Prior to commencing your therapy, you may numb the region using a topical anaesthetic cream.

** This cream greatly alleviates the feeling. 

** If an anaesthetic cream is required, it may be administered about 20-30 minutes before to your injections. 

Is there any downtime?

Although treatment durations vary, our process usually takes between 30-45 minutes and there is no expected downtime, save for minor bruising, so you can easily fit your dermal filler visits into your regular activities. In comparison to many other cosmetic procedures, this one is excellent for people who lead hectic lifestyles. 

How many times do I need to have this treatment?

Dermal fillers provide immediate and noticeable postoperative effects; your skin appears younger, dewier, and tighter. Due to the minimal risk associated with dermal fillers, problems are very uncommon. Due to the absence of a substantial recuperation period and little downtime, the patient may quickly resume their normal lifestyle. Bruising, mild redness, small swelling, and an itchy sensation at the treated location are all possible immediately after therapy. It is recommended that you avoid subjecting the treated region to very high temperatures, such as those seen in solariums and when sunbathing, as well as severe cold. Additionally, if you have a history of developing face cold sores, needle punctures of any kind may lead to another eruption. Following that, beginning a course of Zovirax or Aciclovir lotion shortly before your operation may help decrease the likelihood of this recurrence. 

Following that, beginning a course of Zovirax or Aciclovir cream immediately before to your surgery may help decrease the likelihood of this recurrence. 

Following first treatment, the majority of patients return typically every 6-12 months for follow-up therapy, but this process may be performed as often as needed, depending on the degree of improvement sought. To get the best outcomes, a follow-up surgery within 2-4 weeks after the first procedure may be necessary. If this is the case, the quantity of Hyaluronic Acid required will be less.
