Lauren’s Top 3 Skin Treatments (& Lockdown Lessons)

Firstly, it goes without saying that you can’t possibly go without your home care if you want to keep your skin healthy and looking its best, and quite frankly if I had to go without this over lockdown, I may have had to break into The Face Place to replenish my supplies. Please don’t try this yourself – lucky for me I had reserves! 

Lockdown was a great experiment regarding determining what my skin really missed. Access to treatment has obviously been limited for the last few months and wow, what a difference that made.  

1. Healite II LED Light Therapy 

One of my biggest deprivations was missing out on regular Healites – I noticed a tangible difference in the skin texture. It lacked the plump firmness that I’m used too and as soon as I got back on track with treatments, I almost saw an immediate difference.  

Healite is light therapy that stimulates wound healing and repair, resulting in improved hydration, less sensitivity and collagen product. My skin is always radiant immediately afterwards and in the long term, it thickens the skin and improves texture. I ideally like to do a course every eight months with maintenance treatments in between.

2. Microneedling With My Gold Roller 

Another dearly missed tool was my Environ Gold Roller: although not due to lockdown, it has been stored away for a few months due to a big renovation I’m doing and was accidentally relegated to ‘storage’. Again, an addition to the skin regime that makes an immediate and long-term change in the skin: home rollers create shallow perforations in the skin that allow your home care to absorb so much better, giving far superior results.

3. Vitamin A Peels 

I managed to do a Vitamin A peel a few weeks ago – the first in a while. This type of treatment can give fabulous all-round results for just about anyone and everyone.  
We refer to Vitamin A as a cell normaliser, which means it is responsible for keeping your skin in tip-top condition. When we use relatively high doses in the form of a peel there are many metabolic improvements occurring. Firstly, a peel or flake can be induced which gives the skin a rapid cell turnover leaving the skin clear and luminous.
There’s also a much longer-term response where we initiate something called gene transcription where damaged DNA can be repaired, and collagen can be stimulated. In essence, the Vitamin A peel approach is addressing many issues: skin texture (lines, pore size, laxity), pigmentation, hydration, oil flow and hydration.  

Fortunately for all of us, skin treatments are now available again and the team at The Face Place is incredibly excited to see you all again and help you get your skin back to looking its best ASAP!

Britomart Car Park

Currently this car park is offering 2 hours' free parking with a receipt of $50 or more from a Britomart store (such as The Face Place). We also recommend using the valet parking option at Britomart Car Park.

The Central Valet drop-off point is located on the corner of Gore and Tyler Streets, opposite Takutai Square. Drive in via the entrance on Gore Street, where you’ll be greeted by a friendly valet concierge. Just leave your engine running, take your ticket and off you go. Cars dropped here will be valet parked for you at Britomart Car Park. You can retrieve your car at any time by taking your valet ticket to Britomart Car Park Reception on the corner of Britomart Place and Scene Lane.

Valet parking is $20* for two hours (includes parking charges) $5 each additional half-hour to a daily maximum of $45 (to midnight). You just drop off your car and pick up a ticket, without the hassle of finding a parking space. It is available from 10am-8pm.

If you wish to park longer than two hours, until the end of June 2022 there is also special offer of half-price parking booked through www.mycarpark.co.nz which is available by using the special code on the landing page.

We’re also right beside Britomart Train Station and public transport is 50% off until the end of August 2022.
