Express Treatments: Five Treatments You Can Do In Your Lunch Hour

skin treatments manchesterWe all lead busy lifestyles, which can often mean that our skin gets neglected. Whilst a day of pampering sounds ideal, the reality is that few of us have the time spare to set aside a whole day. Fortunately we have a range of treatments available which can refresh and rejuvenate your skin in just thirty minutes.


Facials are usually considered to be the ultimate skin treatment. A luxurious treat, the Proteolytic Enzyme Facial is a scientifically based method of effective exfoliation and skin resurfacing. The term proteolytic refers to an enzymatic reaction that can digest dead or diseased skin cells without harming normal living healthy cells. The treatment leads to an immediate improvement in skin texture and clarity, with skin appearing smoother and more refined.

Laser Hair Removal

Waxing and shaving can be both time consuming and costly. Shockingly, women can spend up to £30,000 in their lifetime on waxing treatments! Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is a speedy treatment with no downtime – and is far more cost effective. Treatments often last less than 30 minutes, and take place around 6 weeks apart – making laser a far more suitable treatment for those who lead a busy lifestyle. The results are also much longer lasting than waxing – after the first treatment, you will begin to notice the results and by the end of the course you will have permanent hair reduction.

Chemical Skin Peels

In previous years chemical skin peels have been harsh treatments that require downtime. Fortunately that is no longer the case, and our range of chemical skin peels usually have no downtime at all – making them the perfect treatment for a hectic lifestyle. We offer a range of peels to suit all skin types.

The Jan Marini 70% Glycolic Peel is a light, superficial peel which reveals healthier, smoother skin, whilst the Obagi Radiance Peel is a medium peel, which penetrates the skin more deeply to remove dead cells. It is recommended for patients with pigmentation problems and more severe skin complaints.


Every now and then our skin can use a good exfoliation, but sometimes products alone are not good enough. Dermabrasion uses crystals to remove dead skin cells, leaving behind only fresh skin. The quick treatment has no downtime and leaves skin instantly looking healthy and refreshed.

Skin Rejuvenation

Whilst laser might not sound like the most relaxing treatment, it is definitely one which produces enviable results. Advances in technology also mean that it is a far more comfortable treatment than it has been in the past. Intense pulse light (IPL) is a laser treatment which can effectively improve the appearance of sun damage, pigmentation, flushing to the face (rosacea) and a number of other common skin complaints. Again, it also has no real downtime meaning that it’s ideal for those who lead a busy lifestyle.

With all of these treatments taking just thirty minutes, they’re perfect for those who lead a busy lifestyle. Whether it’s for a weekend treat, or a lunchtime rejuvenation, our treatments can be tailored to suit you and your lifestyle. Our expert practitioners will carry out a full skin assessment and will be able to advise exactly which treatment is best for you.
