Our Facial Festival gives you the chance to get a completely fresh perspective on any skin concerns that you may have.

The vast majority of people who will come to see us during the week-long event are likely to be experiencing at least one of the four most common skin-related issues: pigmentation, rosacea, acne, or general ageing.

In fact, it would be more accurate to say that most people don’t just have one skin concern but several. Somebody who is 35, for example, might show the first signs of ageing while also having acne and some acne scarring.

At VL Aesthetics, we have developed a way to treat all skin concerns simultaneously during a single treatment. Using the most innovative, clinically proven technologies and products, we deliver unparalleled results that you’ll be more than happy with.

The idea of our Facial Festival is to let you try some of the medically-led treatments we offer, without having to make a long-term commitment upfront. The taster medical facial included in your ticket will provide visible results and will give you a good idea about the treatments that can help you. There will also be a skin analysis on offer to fully identify what is going on under your skin and highlight the best ways to look after it.

Our Facial Festival is a chance to try something new that could make a big difference – book your tickets online now to see how we can help you.

Developed by a global team of doctors, dermatologists, and scientists, AlumierMD® is the leading brand in medical-grade skin care.

Unlike other cosmetic brands, AlumierMD® medical facials use the most effective scientifically-based ingredients, delivering unparalleled results with minimal to no side effects.

With over 100 years of combined skin care experience, AlumierMD® experts understand the physiology behind different skin conditions and use state of the art, science-based formulations to give you clear beautiful skin.

As we age, our cell turnover slows down and fibroblasts decrease production of collagen and elastin. The retinol and peptides present in AlumierMD® medical facials are essential for reversing signs of ageing as they are the only two ingredients proven to stimulate fibroblasts.

We believe that every person’s skin needs good skin care, even if no pressing conditions are present. All of our treatments are hyper-customised to target multiple skin concerns at once.

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that typically affects the face. Its symptoms include redness, pimples, swelling, and dilated blood vessels.

AlumierMD® medical facials have been clinically proven to help the symptoms of rosacea – the ingredients have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial properties which relieve redness and inflammation while strengthening skin cells and capillaries.

All of our treatments are hyper-customised to target multiple skin concerns at once.

Acne can be mild (occasional pimples), moderate (inflammatory papules), or severe (nodules and cysts). It is caused by a combination of the bacteria on your skin, the fatty acids in your oil glands, and a sensitivity to androgenic hormones.

We can treat both teen acne and adult acne by using a combination of medical-grade skincare and innovative treatment protocols. All of our treatments are hyper-customised to target multiple skin concerns at once.

Hyperpigmentation is the condition in which an excess of melanin forms deposits in the skin. Areas that are affected by this condition appear darker in colour, and take the shape of spots, streaks, or patches.

Our clinically proven treatments will help improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and give a brighter, more even-toned complexion. This advanced regimen is a full spectrum solution that targets hyperpigmentation using five different methods for increased effectiveness.

All of our treatments are hyper-customised to target multiple skin concerns at once.

Yes. AlumierMD® medical facials are ‘clinically proven’. This means that they have been put through rigorous scientific testing and have been shown to deliver results.

The results can vary from person to person however, depending on your skin type and the severity of your condition.

Very safe. AlumierMD® medical facials have been scientifically tested and are clinically proven.

However, although the treatments are very safe, they are not suitable for people with certain medical conditions, people who have recently had certain facial procedures, or people with particular allergies.

We carry out a full medical assessment before starting your treatment, so if you are not suitable, we will find out before your treatment begins.

AlumierMD® medical facials are specially formulated to reduce irritation and redness, with minimal to no social downtime.

The main side effects are usually tenderness and increased sensitivity to the sun. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience residual redness, which can last 1 to 12 hours, or you might have light to moderate flaking in a few localised areas for 3 to 7 days.

In general, most clients do not find it necessary to apply makeup, as the skin will be smooth, hydrated, and radiant after your treatment.

Beautiful skin can’t happen overnight, and treatments take time to show results. A single AlumierMD® medical facial will provide immediate brighter and radiant skin, however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines, and inflamed acne can take up to eight weeks.

For the very best results, we recommend using home care products consistently and as directed – just as you take time to exercise, you need to take time for your ‘daily skincare workout’.

The results are usually long term, but if your condition is more severe, your symptoms might come back again at some point in the future. In such cases, we recommend more regular AlumierMD® medical facials and a strict adherence to our home care programme.

  • If you are lactating, pregnant, or may be pregnant, consult your physician before receiving any treatment.
  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks prior to your treatment.
  • Avoid the use of retinoid products (e.g. retinol, Retin-A®, Tazorac®) and high levels of AHA and BHA products for approximately 7 days prior to your treatment. Consult your doctor before temporarily discontinuing the use of any prescription medications.

Recommended by doctors, dermatologists, and beauty professionals, Skinade® is a specially formulated drink that:

  • Increases Skin Hydration and Radiance
  • Improves the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Increases Skin Suppleness and Elasticity
  • Gives Healthier Looking Hair and Nails

The Skinade® formula is protected by several patents and contains 6 active ingredients:

  • Hydrolysed Marine Collagen Peptides – With a low molecular weight of 2kDa, these are some of the smallest collagen peptides available within collagen drinks. They are sourced from fresh water fish skin, giving them a high level of type I collagen, type III collagen, and amino acids.
  • Vitamin C (Calcium Ascorbate) – Protects against free radical damage and helps with collagen production and maintenance. Vitamin C also helps with the absorption of the collagen peptides.
  • Vitamin B Complex (B1, B2 – Riboflavin, B3 – Niacin, B5, B6, B7 – Biotin, B9 – Folic acid and B12) – Prevents oxidative stress and promotes healthy, clear skin.
  • MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – An organic sulphur that aids collagen and keratin formation.
  • Organic Flax Seed Oil – Typically provides 26mg of alpha Linolenic acid (Omega 3) and 7mg of Linoleic acid (Omega 6) which help improve dry and oily skin.
  • L-lysine – An amino acid essential in the process of rebuilding the collagen matrix.

Skinade® has natural flavours from mangosteen and peach juices, as well as concentrated grape juice. It is sweetened with sucralose – a zero-calorie artificial sweetener. It does not need to be stored in the refrigerator, but many people prefer it chilled.

Skinade® does not contain bovine or porcine products, hormones, genetically modified organisms, alcohol, added sugar, artificial flavours, or artificial colours, and is free from lactose, gluten, and dairy. It does however contain marine collagen, sourced from fresh-water fish, so it is not suitable for strict vegans or vegetarians.
