The Million Dollar Facial by DANU Studios

The Million Dollar Facial is one of the most talked about treatments, because you will honestly leave feeling a million dollars.  

The treatment consists of a deep cleanse of the skin to make sure the skin is fully clean and prepped for the next step. We then move on to Dermaplaning, this is a small scalpel that is glided across the face removing all dead skin and vellus hair. Fear not though ladies this hair will not grow back any darker or thicker on the face.  This actually makes the skin 80 per cent more absorbent, mean you will actually see way better results from home care products also.  

Next we move on to microneedling also known as collages induction therapy. This procedure tricks the skin in to thinking that it’s damaged and the skin automatically starts to reproduce extra collagen and elastin. This is fantastic for fine lines & wrinkles, acne scaring, pigmentation and giving overall radiance to the skin.  

The best part is you are actually still seeing the results 6 weeks after the treatment!  

A hyaluronic acid mask is then applied to the skin where you can switch off and relax in the warm, heated cosy bed, whilst listening to the relaxing music and the smell of aromatherapy candles. It really is a must to get the skin looking the best it’s ever been over the festive period but also allowing you a little bit of self care in between the hectic Christmas shopping. We all need a bit of love and self care don’t we.
