European Facial

A classic-style facial, but SO much more. An important part of treating the skin (and achieving great results) is to relieve stress in the body and mind. Blending relaxation techniques and stress-relieving massage while nourishing the skin provides a perfect balance to support your skin’s health.  An ideal treatment for anyone with compromised health or recovering from illness/surgery.  Having studied massage for cancer patients, I adapt the treatment to suit – an important consideration for those who have undergone mastectomy and/or lymph node removal.

This is a beautiful gift for someone… absolute relaxation with customised facial, full back, shoulder, neck & scalp massage, feet & leg exfoliation and massage, and either LED or oxygen included if desired.

1hr 20min – $165

1hr 50min – $185

Sculptural Facial

Developed by renowned massage therapist, Yakov Gershkovich, a unique massage technique to lift the facial muscles.

HOP+ (House of Plla) - formerly Sculplla (click for details)

A HOP+ or Sculplla facial uses the same ingredient, Poly-L Lactic acid, that surgeons use when doing facial filler services with injectables and dissolvable sutures – the injectable type is called Sculptra – and is considered to be the safest and achieve the most natural results for fillers.

It is also used by doctors to address loss of facial volume due to side-effects of some medications. Used topically in a facial, the HOP+/Sculplla serum absorbs into the hair follicle and attaches there and begins to stimulate collagen production in the cellular matrix, to plump and build the skin. A hydrogen mask is applied which ‘seals’ the skin and once absorbed, the mask is removed. The results are a natural, line-softening and lifting effect which lasts up to a month-5 weeks for a single treatment.

Poly-L Lactic acid is completely safe and just dissolves and absorbs into the bloodstream and is excreted by the body.

For best results, a series is recommended, once a week for a few weeks – and this is dependent on your age and skin – as a guide, below 45 years of age, you would expect to do 4, over 45, recommended would be 6.  Results can last up to 9 months, with recommended home care. A maintenance mask can also be done from time-to-time.

This treatment is perfect to improve skin laxity and create volume as it gives a plumping effect, fills lines both on the face and the neck, and improves the texture of the skin, refining pores and scarring.

Single Treatment (1hr 30min) – $180.00

Series of 4 – $680.00

Series of 6 – $980.00

**Buccal massage may be included with any facial for an additional $50**

Microcurrent

Microcurrent is a sub-sensory treatment which uses a gentle electrical current to treat the skin and facial muscles.

Our bodies are, in fact, electric – we have a natural electrical field within our cells. Microcurrent mimics the body’s electrical field which results in the stimulation of cellular function – induces the production of more ATP (protein) which is crucial for muscles to remain firm and support the skin – they are the framework your skin lays on. What are the results? Similar to lifting weights at the gym, Microcurrent stimulates the muscles and after a series of treatments, your muscles retain the memory of that position and so become firmer and more lifted.

Not just for lifting and firming, Microcurrent facials can greatly improve and manage Acne, Rosacea, Dehydrated & Dry skins as it detoxifies, calms and improves cell respiration & hydration.

​It is a painless, non-invasive holistic treatment and will provide a deep relaxation also.

If you are looking at an age-management plan, number of treatments will be dependent on your age, but can range from 6-10, ideally weekly or fortnightly, and then results can be maintained afterwards. Why weekly? We are wanting to build that muscle memory, just like your regular exercise sessions. You will still achieve results with treatments spaced out more, but it will take a little more time.

​If you are wanting to treat Acne or another skin condition, a plan can be discussed to suit.

Other benefits of Microcurrent are it increases Collagen and Elastin production, increases circulation, and provides detoxification so your cells are functioning at their absolute optimum. Skin is smoother, plumper – as Microcurrent improves hydration in cells – skin is brighter, pigmentation is reduced, pore size is refined, scarring is reduced.

If you want a WOW factor for a special occasion, this will give you that – it’s known as the go-to for Celebrities before a big Event so even 1 treatment will show!

 

LED

LED or light emitting diode, uses light rays to heal and stimulate the skin.

Different colours of light are used for different skin conditions – Blue for acne, Red for rejuvenation, Yellow for Rosacea, Green for pigmentation, and also colours in combination.

​It is an effective treatment for a host of conditions. LED can be added to any facial or can be used in a series on its’ own to help with chronic conditions.

It is recommended when treating chronic conditions such as acne or rosacea, eczema etc.. that a series is undertaken 2-3 times a week for a few weeks to help reduce the severity. LED or light emitting diode, uses light rays to heal and stimulate the skin.

 

Oxygen

Oxygen is necessary for every cell in the body – cells use the oxygen carried in our bloodstreams to gain energy to to fuel all our living processes.

A skin with oxygen depletion is unable to function at an optimal level – nutrients aren’t carried and skin will be dehydrated, lose tone, and look sallow and lacklustre.

​We now see skincare having oxygen molecules added, so using oxygen in a treatment makes a lot of sense.  Specific serums and peptides are applied to the skin and infused with 92% pure oxygen …. with an airbrush and also through a dome which provides the added bonus of oxygen directly inhaled to assist the body.  The system I use also has an Ioniser within the unit, which adds Anions – or negative ions – into the oxygen for an added health benefit.  This creates an atmosphere similar to that experienced in a rainforest or near the ocean.   Oxygen may be added to any massage for extra healing.

Skin is immediately plumped, refreshed, smoothed and hydrated.  Also provides anti-bacterial bonuses for skins which are inflamed or reactive.

​Suitable for all skin types.

​A great ‘pre event’ facial – a favourite with red carpet celebs.

 

Ultrasound

Ultrasound – Time Master Pro

Using sound waves, Ultrasound penetrates the skin and promotes collagen & elastin production, improves blood flow, tone, and with the addition of pulsed LED, sends lots of light energy to the cells for an extra boost.

​The Time Master Pro combines both ultrasound and

LED and improves volume and lifts the face and neck.  It will also improve skin tone and brighten the complexion.

Like LED or other therapies, treatments can be done twice a week, with a series over a couple of weeks giving lasting results.

This treatment plumps and lifts the skin IMMEDIATELY.

 

Microneedling

Microneedling can be beneficial for stimulating the skin to produce more collagen and elastin, and to increase the delivery of serums deeper into the skin.

Acne Scar Treatment from $150

– Scar revision requires a number of sessions and each skin responds and repairs in its’ own way. A treatment plan can be discussed to suit you.

Hair Loss Treatment from $120

– Stress, hormones, illness can play a big role in hair thinning and hair loss. Microneedling the scalp is very effective to increase blood supply to the hair follicles to promote growth, when combined with appropriate hair serums.

– Treatments are spaced 10-14 days’ apart.

Facial Rejuvenation

Single Treatment $250

Series of 4 $900

– Includes 3ml NeoGenesis Serum

Series of 6 $1400

Clients Say

Sharon G

“I began seeing Karen early last year after a recommendation from a friend – and now it’s me who recommends Karen to everyone. I have had a series of microcurrent treatments which I had never heard of – my skin became much smoother, brighter and my whole face, particularly my jaw area, was lifted and shaped – there was and still is a visible difference. I always leave feeling totally refreshed – and my skin looks FANTASTIC.”
~Sharon G.

Kirrily M.

“I had spent 2 years and a lot of money at another salon with zero results – after only a few microcurrent treatments, and using NeoGenesis products, my lip & mouth lines were finally improved. Karen is amazing! She really makes you feel special and you definitely feel pampered. ~Kirrily Marsh

Rania S.

“I found Karen when buying NeoGenesis from the US and discovered she used NeoGenesis here in Sydney. I love Karen’s non-invasive and holistic approach to skin – my favourite treatment is the Sculptural Lift – Karen’s hands are magic! I’d read about this technique so was excited when I found out she offered this. It involves a buccal massage – really releases the tension in my face & jaw. Feels amazing! Karen’s a guru on skin, and my rosacea-prone skin has benefitted tremendously from using NeoGenesis and her treatments.” ~Rania S.

Sandra B.

“My daughter first recommended Karen to me a number of years ago and I’ve had many treatments with her from facials to lash lifts and tinting. My skin has improved so much, and I often receive compliments. Last year I began a series of microcurrent treatments and the results were better than I had expected. My skin was so much smoother and had a really natural glow. The bigger change was my eyes and cheeks – the puffiness under my eyes disappeared and the skin was much firmer. I always enjoy my visits and leave feeling uplifted. I highly recommend a visit to experience what Karen has to offer.” ~Sandra B.

Sharon G.

“I have come to the realisation that it is so important to look after my skin and even more important that I am in the right hands. I leave Karen after a couple of hours feeling on top of the world and so pleased with my results. And I must say, Karen’s music makes the experience even more enjoyable.” ~Sharon G.

Felicity L.

“I love my time spent at Luna Skin and have been seeing Karen every month for more than 5 years. My facial is so relaxing I regularly fall asleep! I highly recommend Karen for her professionalism, care and the quality of the products she uses.” ~Felicity Lewis

Kate H.

“I have been seeing Karen for about 6 years and would recommend her to everyone. I have sensitive skin and have been hospitalised as a result of reactions to products, but with Karen, she only uses products that are safe and natural – she always researches her products and treatments to ensure they are of the highest quality. I’d definitely recommend for everyone, having one of Karen’s facials. I have never experienced a facial like hers. My last was before my wedding and my face was absolutely glowing and had never looked so good. Her facials go beyond the usual – with her massage training and techniques, I have never felt so pampered.” ~Kate Hammad

Kate W.

“Before I started seeing Karen, I was having my brows waxed at another salon. I thought I was happy with how they looked but after seeing Karen, I realised how wrong the shape of my brows were. They were too thin, had been over-trimmed and were uneven. Karen had to work hard to correct the other salon’s errors, and it took a while for one of my brows to fill back in so that she could match their shape – she’s an expert at shaping my brows to suit my face. Now I don’t trust anyone to touch my brows.” ~Kate W.

Libby C.

“I’ve been fortunate to be a client of Karen’s for over 5 years – and been seeing her every 5 weeks for my lashes and brows. In that time, I’ve had a number of treatments including facials, and always feel & look great after a visit. She is the ultimate professional. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my skin and beauty needs.” ~Libby Clarke

Carmel D.

“I felt wonderful after my massage … I’ll be back. Might have to alternate between massages and facials. Both are glorious!” ~Carmel D.

Mel R.

“I moved into the area 5 years ago and found Karen when doing a Google search.  What a find!  Karen is a lovely and caring person which shines through in her treatments.  She also has an abundance of knowledge on beauty and skin and has helped me with caring for my dry and sensitive skin.  Seeing her is always a treat.” ~Mel Russo

Renée Z.

I had THE most fabulous facial I have ever had with Karen.  It was so much more than just a facial – it was a complete relaxation experience and included some amazing massage.  I came away feeling so relaxed, like I had been on a holiday. My skin was deliciously smooth, soft and plump.  I highly recommend Karen to anyone who wants a deeply relaxing experience and beneficial facial. ~Renée Zaia.

Pam D.

I was recommended by beauty editor, Stephanie Darling, a few years’ ago to an organic product, and Karen was the facialist for the range.  I have been seeing her ever since, and have sent so many of my friends and family along, for the most relaxing, peaceful, pampering experience where you leave truly refreshed. ~Pam Doherty

Jenny B.

“Visiting Karen at Luna Skin is my go-to ‘happy place’ for facials, eyebrows and lash tint.  I walk out feeling 100% rejuvenated.  She is so good I travel from Canberra to see her.” ~Jenny Burke

Amanda S.

“Karen’s facials are truly the most relaxing experience.  I leave feeling euphoric and my skin has never been better.” ~Amanda Smith

Ellie G.

“Every time I see Karen, I leave with the most beautiful skin and I feel totally relaxed.  Karen’s facials are by far the BEST and I highly recommend Luna Skin.” ~Ellie Gordon

Tricia H.

“I have been seeing Karen for more than a year now, after being recommended by a friend, and just love my visits.  Whether she’s tinting something or working on my skin, I always leave feeling great. There is no criticism of my lack of beauty regime nor does she push the sale of her products, which just adds to the relaxing atmosphere – as do her great playlists!  Thoroughly recommend a visit with Karen.” ~Tricia Hales
