The Deluxe Signature Facial is 1 hour of relaxation and revitalising pampering for your skin. This pampering facial is tailored to you using a combination of active vitamins and serums to target specifically to your concerns.
A warm cleanse is applied to your face, neck and décolletage. Once your skin is freshly cleansed you will have a deep exfoliation using Synergie’s Mediscrub. This luxurious product is a powerful scrub containing the same natural mineral, Corundum, that is used in clinical microdermabrasion. Mediscrub contains this ingredient in a non toxic crystal form, to exfoliate dead skin cells and unclog pores, without harshness. After it has been massaged into the skin releasing any congestion or impurities a second cleanse removes the scrub and the skin is prepared to receive active ingredients.
Now the sensory journey begins. Revitaleyes restores hydration and nourish the skin around the eye area. The therapist will awaken your senses with the application of the aromatic Synergie Destress where you will experience the calming effects of lavender essential oil. This is applied lightly over face, neck and decolletage with gentle massage to your temples for further stress relief. A tailored mask is applied to the skin using either Masquarase or Detox-antiox combined with either Destress, Decongest or Medicalm to deliver your skin its essential requirements.
Following removal of the mask you will receive a therapeutic dose of Omnilux LED light therapy. Omnilux works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing and clears acne-prone skin.
You will leave our clinics feeling refreshed and hydrated while being protected by the Synergie Uberzinc moisturiser and sun protection applied before you leave the treatment bed.

How do I prepare my skin for the best results?
Preparing your skin is essential to not only achieve the best results from your treatment, it also strengthens your skin ensuring it is ready to receive the clinical strength of our active ingredients.
A skin consultation is required to determine the most suited combination of cosmeceutical skin care to your individual skin concerns and needs. Our highly trained skin therapists will provide a thorough assessment of your skin with the most up to date techniques and procedures to uncover your exact needs.
Many of our patients enjoy trialing the different serums and products in the form of trial packs. If you’re new to using cosmeceutical skin care we recommend:
Why use Omnilux LED light therapy?
Unlike any other light therapy device on the market, Omnilux is based on many years of medical research. Omnilux is used extensively by 3300 dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide. The efficacy and safety of Omnilux is very well documented in over 60 peer-reviewed publications.
This ensures you have powerful results. Omnilux efficacy claims for wrinkles and acne treatment are substantiated by over a decade of clinical evidence, evidence in short supply from the new quick-to-market entries in the LED light category.
How does OMNILUX work?
Omnilux works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing and clears acne-prone skin. OMNILUX™ features three interchangeable LED light treatment heads, each with a different colour of light, or wavelength; each head has up to 1700 evenly-spaced diodes which emit a specific narrow band wavelength of light that is proven effective for the condition being treated.
What does OMNULUX treat?
Using different combinations of the LED treatment heads means that the skin therapist can deliver effective treatment for acne, skin rejuvenation and for the reduction of peri-orbital wrinkles.
