With Mother’s Day in the middle of the month, why not dedicate our beauty and pampering feature to the woman we all love most. Nothing says “you’re the best mum in the world” quite like a couple of hours of indulgence and relaxation.
Dermaplane facial at Laser Skin Technologies
Do mum a favour and introduce her to dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that utilises a specialised instrument designed to ‘scrape’ away the accumulated dead skin cells and vellus hair. It is a very comfortable, relaxing facial while tackling scarring, pigmentation and skin tone issues. Dermaplaning leaves skin looking and feeling youthful, smoother and softer.
