Botox & Facial Bar
For all you Londoners who like looking good but are super busy I’ve found an amazing new place that’s easy to get to, reasonably priced, contains the UK’s first facial bar, a make-up bar, aesthetic clinic and a cosmeceutical boutique!
What is it called?
It’s called Askinology and they even provide botox and filler treatments which are always performed by Dr. Askari Townshend and never by a nurse or beauty therapist for safety. The cosmeceutical boutique is situated on the ground floor. The facial bar on the mezzanine and a premium advanced laser and aesthetic clinic in the basement. To save even more time you can also book an appointment online and buy the products online too.
Where is it?
Askinology is located in Leadenhall Market, perfect if you work in the city and it is just down the road from Monument, Bank and Liverpool Street Stations. The address is – 35 – 36 Leadenhall Place, Leadenhall Market, EC3V 1LT
This classy facial bar for men and women is dedicated to bringing good skin health to busy people with results driven treatments that are quick and can fit around your schedule. Most services last under an hour meaning a visit to the Askinology with back to work makeup can have you back to work within the hour.
Using the most advanced cosmeceutical skin care ranges such as Skinceuticals, NeoStrata and Zo Skin Health (by Dr Obagi), you can pick from six different 30 minute facials which cost just £45 and will be tailored to your exact specifications. The options include OMG Breakout, Stop The Clock, Plump up the Volume, Fade Away, Be Gentle and Razor Recovery which cover skin issues from pigmentation to dehydration.
You can add-on to your facial an eye or neck booster or an extraction service for just £10 or go for a Peel-Me Booster at £65 which is a gentle skin peel with no down time. If you need to go back to the office or for after-work drinks never fear as you can move to the gorgeous make-up bar where you can have it done professionally with Jane Iredale mineral make-up, perfect for post treatment skin. Either go for quick and easy back to work makeup or a more glamorous look whilst you sip on a collagen boosting cocktail to help plump up the skin. All this and be back to work within the hour!
|After My Facial|
I went to Askinology and was impressed to experience the UK’s first Facial Bar. Kerri helped me decided on the Stop The Clock facial which uses the amazing Skinceuticals range including high strength antioxidants such as vitamins A and C, which left my skin plump and rejuvenated and the Eye Eye add on treatment which is great for computer users or people with dry or puffy eyes.
What happens in a facial?
Once the mask was applied Kerri gave me a complimentary hand massage and this is also when you can have your Hydratini or Singa-pore Skin collagen cocktail! After the treatment I moved on to the make-up bar where I had the quick and easy Back to Work makeup applied so nobody would think anything of it when I got back to the office. Overall I was very impressed and think that the strength and potency of the products used coupled with the lovely surroundings and great staff at Askinology means that I will definitely be back, my skin really glowed when I left and that has lasted well unlike other facials where you look the same a few hours later.
I love a bit of botox and wanted to mention it as well as there are 15% off all injectable treatments in December (2015)!
Whether you have already noticed lines around your eyes, frown or forehead or want to do all that you can to protect these areas before permanent lines appear. Botox will help you. I have mine done once or twice a year depending on whether I can afford it and you are in really safe hands as Dr Askari has been offering Botox treatments for over 10 years and he is an accredited national trainer, it’s definitely the best Botox treatment I have ever had, forehead is looking on fleek!
Dr Askari offers a free, no obligation consultation to ensure that all of your questions are answered and results explained. A complimentary review 2 weeks later gives Dr Askari the opportunity to assess and fine tune your results if necessary to ensure a 5 star service.
Is Botox right for me?
There are very few contraindications to treatment but Dr Askari does not treat those who are pregnant, breast feeding or under the age of 20.
Does Botox treatment it hurt?
The needle used is extremely fine and treatments have minimal discomfort.
What about my make-up?
Remove small areas of makeup around the injection sites.
When will I see the results?
Results can often begin between 3-5 days but full results may take up to 10 days.
Will I look worse if I stop having treatment?
No. Once your Botox wears off, you will are more likely to look fresher. The Botox has a protective effect on the skin and will prevent the progression of fine lines.
Who will perform my treatment?
Dr Askari Townshend. All new clients must have a consultation to discuss possible treatment and assess suitability. Even if they have had treatment before elsewhere. It is possible to have treatment on the same day as consultation. Read more here http://askinology.com/pages/treatments/botox
