Halloween grows every October here in the UK. Houses are adorned with spooky spiderwebs and supermarket aisles are full to the brim with multipacks of ‘treats’ to prepare for the creepiest holiday of the year. We’re getting into the spirit of the occasion at EF MEDISPA, with the Pumpkin Peel and the Vampire Facial!
Lifestyle has a big part to play in how well we take care of ourselves. As time has gone on, we’ve developed unhealthy habits that can negatively impact our general health. By consuming more alcohol and processed foods than ever before, and with our jobs and home life becoming more sedentary, we’re moving much less than we ever did. Our bodies aren’t designed to work in this way, so we aren’t effectively ridding ourselves of the harmful things we are consuming. If we don’t have a system that works to its full potential, we’re storing all manner of nasties in our bowels which could be causing problems. The average person should experience two bowel movements a day, but with the aforementioned lifestyles we currently lead, it’s unsurprising that many of us don’t quite fill that quota; this is where EF MEDISPA can help with a range of colonic hydrotherapy treatments for your benefit.
The Pumpkin Peel
Great for sensitive skin and those new to skin peels, the Pumpkin Peel is one of our most gentle facials, but that doesn’t mean it won’t pack a punch. Pumpkin enzymes and glycolic, lactic and salicylic acid are the key ingredients in this potion, and together they help to clarify tired, dehydrated skin by speeding up the removal of dead skin cells.
The Pumpkin Peel is suitable for all skin types but works especially well for those who might be experiencing the first signs of ageing. The pumpkin enzymes improve collagen production, resulting in plumper, more refined skin. If you’re struggling with hyperpigmentation or acne, the Pumpkin Peel provides gentle but effective exfoliation and with continued treatments, you’ll notice a gradual reduction in the appearance of your pigmentation and a brighter complexion.
The Vampire Facial
Though this may sound like the most frightening facial you’ll ever have, it certainly isn’t as scary as it seems. The Vampire Facial, or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as it’s officially known, has grown a cult following, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian-West and Rupert Everett swearing by it.
PRP Therapy uses your own blood and plasma to encourage collagen production in your skin, as the platelets work to heal damaged tissues including skin and hair follicles. We extract a small amount of your blood during the treatment and place it in a centrifuge to spin it, so we can separate your red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma. Once it’s removed, the plasma is then injected back into your skin, where it kick-starts collagen production and tackles your problem areas. The blood-sucking nature of the facial is to thank for its ghoulish nickname.
If you’re looking for help with crows feet, wrinkles, fine lines and loose skin, this treatment is perfect for you, as the boost in the production of collagen will plump and rejuvenate the skin, and will continue to do so for weeks after your treatment has finished. That said, there isn’t a reason not to try PRP Therapy; there aren’t many people who won’t benefit from its brightening and rejuvenating properties.
The Vampire Facial can be used in other areas, too! Hair loss is an issue that affects both men and women and can be upsetting. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used on the scalp to promote hair growth and can help give you thicker, fuller, healthier hair.
Ageing can be a frustrating process, and our hands are one of the first places we notice it. PRP Therapy for the hands works in the same way as it does on your face, by smoothing and firming wrinkled loose skin.
