We like to help the women of South Woodford stay looking good – and we know that looking after your skin should start young – beauty treatments are for everybody. Every woman should have a beauty routine – a twice daily cleanse, tone and moisturise, then a weekly treat of an exfoliation treatment and soothing facial masque. To really look after your skin, add in a professional facial once every month and your complexion will be as radiant as it can be – and you’ll reap the benefits when it comes to looking younger too.
Dermalogica Face Mapping
The needs of your skin change constantly, depending on the time of the year, hormones, and your age. To really have an effect, a facial needs to take this into account, and this is why all the facials we carry out at Virginia Williams in South Wodford use the Dermalogica Face Mapping technique.
Although there are four basic skin types, normal, oily, sensitive and dry, many of us have characteristics from more than one type making up our own unique skin. The face mapping technique helps us to customise your treatment.
First of all, we analyse your face, dividing it into 14 zones, based on the Chinese philosophy that each zone relates to a specific area of your body or organ. At Virginia Williams we offer all our clients a complimentary Dermalogica Face Mapping consultation, which gives you a zone-by-zone analysis, enhancing your skin’s natural radiance and beauty to give amazing results.
Dermalogica products all contain top quality ingredients, are non-comedogenic (prevent blackheads) and will never contain lanolin, mineral oil, artificial colour, fragrance or alcohol.
The Skin Scanner
How well do you really know your skin? If you really want to keep it looking good and feeling healthy, you need to look under the surface at what’s been going on over the years. It can be a shock, but forewarned is forearmed, and once you know what’s really going on underneath, you can repair it.
We want all the women of South Woodford, Wanstead and Snaresbrook to be able to look their best – and because we care about your beauty here at the skin care studio, we can offer you a free skin scan, to pinpoint any problem areas in your facial skin. We use a specially designed ultraviolet filter to highlight skin damage that’s not visible to the naked eye, so we can help you tackle it before anyone has to see it. We check for dehydration, oiliness, pigmentation, thickened skin and also healthy skin.
We recommend a full consultation before any facial treatment. The skin scanner will show areas that we need to concentrate on, and the face mapping gives another superficial consultation. After a consultation you can be sure that we will be able to give you the best possible tailored skin care plan to use both home and in the studio
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.
