Guinot Facials

Guinot Hydradermie Treatments

Hydradermie is the world-famous facial developed in the 1960s by French biochemist Réne Guinot.  It is the most advanced salon treatment for maintaining a balanced, healthy complexion.

Hydradermie deep-cleanses, oxygenates and regenerates the skin and regular treatments offer immediate and lasting results: they improve hydration in dry skin, reduce sebum levels in oily skin, and reduce average wrinkle depth in lined skin.

The facial uses the Hydraderm machine (unique to Guinot), manual massage and plant extracts to restore the skin’s natural beauty.  After analysing the client’s skin, the Guinot skincare expert customises the products used to treat normal/dry, dehydrated, mature, oily, sensitive or hyper-pigmented skin.  Once the skin is gently cleansed and exfoliated, the skincare therapist applies the carefully selected gels and uses mild galvanic current to help the active ingredients penetrate deep into the skin to remove impurities and toxins.

High Frequency action is then used to oxygenate and create an antiseptic effect before the relaxing massage and customised mask.  A touch of moisturiser for the eye contour, face and neck concludes the treatment.

Hydradermie Facial – a superior facial with an international reputation

A monthly Hydradermie Facial will keep your skin in optimum condition.  The therapist will customise the treatment to suit your skin type: De-hydrated, mature, oily sensitive or pigmented.

Micro Needling comes to the Annex

We are delighted to add celebrity favourite treatment Genosys Micro Needling to our extensive list of facial treatments.

So what’s all the fuss about?

Micro Needling is  an all-round amazing treatment. A favourite among celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian, it caters to a multitude of skin concerns and is safe for any skin type. If you suffer from acne scarring, enlarged pores, fine lines or wrinkles, this is the ideal treatment for you!

The science behind it..

The best part about Medical Micro Needling is that your own body does all the work. There is the dermal roller and the Dermapen which penetrates your skin on different levels, and creates micro injuries to the skin. This kick-starts your body into repair-mode, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. More collagen and elastin means smoother, more refined, tighter skin, and who wouldn’t want that?

Does it hurt?

The term itself “micro needling” may sound a little scary! But rest assured a numbing cream is used on your skin before your treatment so you feel no/ minimal pain and discomfort.  After your treatment, you can expect some redness and sensitivity for a few hours, and some flaking for up to a week. This is all part of the healing process.

We recommend a course of 3-5 treatments, 3 weeks apart for best results. Call us now to book your free consultation. 045 865 732


It goes without saying that we are beyond excited to very soon be offering an extensive range of IMAGE Skincare professional treatments to you, our loyal clients.
