At the Virginia Williams South Woodford studio, I’m delighted to be able to offer a 90-minute anti-ageing treatment session which uses two innovative machines – Microdermabrasion and Lifting.
These two ingenious machines were top of the list of the ten most popular non-invasive treatments, in interviews carried out by top plastic surgeons and Medi-spa owners in the USA.
The microdermabrasion machine is a powerful yet gentle treatment, which delicately removes the top layers of skin, and helps to even out expression lines. During the treatment, tiny crystals are used to exfoliate the skin, then they are removed with a suction mechanism, taking dead skin cells and skin debris with them. You might experience sensitivity or slight redness after the treatment, but this will usually calm down within a few hours.
In the second part of the treatment, we apply a low level electrical micro-current to increase energy levels in the skin cells. This works to ‘lift’ the muscles of the face, raising eyebrows as and relaxing deep-set expression lines. It’s up to you whether you would prefer the treatment to concentrate on your eyes and forehead, or lower jaw and neck.
I recommend a course of six to ten treatments to achieve the best anti-ageing results. We take before and after photographs to show you the results, so that you’ll feel glamorous and youthful again – and have a visible record of the progress, week by week.
Welcome to Virginia Williams Skin care studio, the home of expert facials and hot waxing treatments in South Woodford.
My tranquil home-based studio has been operating for 10 years, making it one of the longest-standing salons in town. I hope that my simple philosophy of offering an unhurried, 1-2-1 service has played a part in making people want to come back for their treatments time and again.
My special areas of expertise are facial therapy, intimate hot waxing and bridal beauty preparation. Anyone looking for a tailored facial will find something to suit in my wide range of specialist treatments. I use Dermalogica, Crystal Clear and Image Skincare products, and can offer targeted treatments from acne management to anti-ageing solutions, such as the powerful Oxygen therapy with Microdermabrasion, or the Lightening Lift peel for hyperpigmentation.
In 2014, I was awarded Dermalogica Expert status, recognising me as one of the highest trained skin care professionals in the country through my postgraduate studies at the International Dermal Institute.
To achieve Dermalogica Expert status, I completed specialist product, treatment and business workshops and sessions offered only to the most skilled and knowledgeable therapists. This advanced knowledge and expertise will be shared with you, the clients, to help you maintain the highest level of skin care.
Clients enjoy visiting the studio annexed to my home, and where the soothing aromas of beauty products await. The ample free on street parking helps to keep their visit stress-free. Being able to offer my clients complete peace and quiet is a real point of pride for me. I very much look forward to continuing to run this haven from the stresses and strains of everyday life for many years to come.
The studio is open five days a week to suit a wide range of lifestyles, including appointments two evenings a week (Tuesday and Thursday) until 8.30pm. You can make your appointment via our fuss-free online booking system or over the telephone.
