I call this one ‘the special one’ because I feel like it’s the one we’ve all been waiting for! A new generation of laser which is pain-free, has no downtime (as in ‘hide away from the world because your face looks sore’ time) and gives results immediately and progressively over time. The stand-out feature of this treatment is that it works in time with your own heart beat – by working in coordination with your pulse/blood flow, you achieve maximum absorption of ingredients to all layers of the skin simultaneously. Pulse-triggered laser is used all over the world medically, with its efficacy proven and patented, but, Byonik is the first to use it for skin rejuvenation – and I’m so glad they did!
From the very thorough cleanse at the start of the treatment (pores must be absolutely and evenly clean for even absorption of products), to the ultra-comforting application of anti-oxidant, Hyaluronic balm/gels, right through to the actual laser treatment every part of this treatment feels soothing, relaxing and luxurious.
My skin was particularly upset before my treatment due to lots of over-testing of products and treatments, my usual advice to myself would have been to take it back to basics; keep it moisturised (with non-acid, non-retinol products) and lay off treatments for a while. However, I was reassured by facialist, Byonik expert and all-round aesthetic guru, Sarah-Jayne Tipper, that this treatment would get my skin back on track, and she was absolutely right. Shockingly right in-fact, the difference in the way my skin looked and felt after only 1 hour of treatment was nothing short of a miracle. The spots, redness and wounds (that I’d stupidly picked at) had already started to heal, my skin felt softer, plumper and just overall, better!
Byonik is not just for skin rejuvenation and acne healing though, it can be used to treat eczema, rosacea, the appearance of scars, it firms the skin and heals it after treatments such as needling, peels or fractional laser, and the best part of it- the more you have, the better your results! This is one treatment you can’t ‘over-do’ so it is definitely one for me!
