• Last week I was a very lucky lady as I was invited along to he multi-award wining EF MEDISPA for non-surgical face lift. ‘The Luminous Lift’ - a 30 minute ‘facelift’ without a knife or needle in sight. It works with LED Phototherapy for a dramatic and instant pain-free laser lift to the skin, to repair, replenish and rejuvenate and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

    This was very nicely timed to coincide with me turning 38, so a nice early birthday pamper treat! I was offered a choice of locations, including Chelsea, Kensington and St John's Wood, but I opted for the one at Canary Wharf, purely because we live quite close by.

    I have to give the whole experience a massive 10/10. Bethany, my consultant, was so friendly and helpful and explained the whole procedure, what I might feel and what to expect. This really put me at ease from the minute I walked through the door.

    The whole experience was a slice of pure bliss. The non-surgical, non-invasive treatment meant I just lay in a darkened room for 30 minutes, with just lovely chilled out music in the background. You have eye patch to cover your eyes from the bright lights and within a few minutes I just drifted off into a nice little afternoon nap.

    Afterwards, I just popped on the Dermaquest Zinc SPF cream and I was good to go. As you can see from the pic there was no visible redness or irritation. I just put my make up back on when I got home.

    I saw a friend yesterday I haven't seen for a while and she was like your skin looks great, so I am already seeing a benefit, although it can take up to 6 weeks to see the full effects.

    As well as the anti-ageing benefits, the LED facial, also helps clear pores. Although, I am 38, I still suffer from breakouts if I don't use matt makeup and powder. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, as I know it helps my skin to stay youthful looking. I am looking forward to seeing if the facial will reduce breakouts.

    I was a little bit worried about what I might be doing to my skin, but they provided me with all the science bit, which soon put me at ease. Basically, the LED phototherapy face treatment at EF MEDISPA combines a rainbow of frequencies; red, yellow, blue, orange and violet, as well as infra-red and cold wave laser, for instant radiant skin. It is an incredibly relaxing experience, and is particularly helpful in the summer months as it encourages the skin to build a protective layer against the harmful rays.

    EF Medispa also do other treatments, such as fillers and botox as well as vitamin drips. So I am sure I will be back very soon!


    Lots of love,
