Beauty treatment trends 2018
Self-care and self-love has stormed into the new year with us. J-Beauty, Clean Beauty and Anti-Pollution skincare are just a few of the beauty trends 2018 is bringing to the fore, and all across London spas and salons are offering up services to answer to them.
In conjunction with the changing face of London's beauty scene, we've rounded up the key beauty treatments trends to try and where to get them - from the best micro-needling in London to the sustainable salons to visit.
Micro-needling has been championed far and wide as the non-invasive secret to youthful, bright, dewy skin. Also known as 'derma-rolling' or 'collagen-induction therapy' – a device complete with minuscule needles delivers controlled punctures as it is rolled over the face and neck. Skin tissue is prompted to go into 'repair mode', which in turn boosts production of elastin and collagen, increasing plumpness, firmness, and brightness.
Where to get it:
Teresa Tarmey: The Kensington-based skincare clinic is a mecca for A-listers seeking micro-needling. 'A tailored cocktail of high potency products are inserted deep below the skin surface,' namely vitamin c or hyaluronic acid, and the clinic also offers a milder micro-needling service for instant results.

Dr Sebagh: The clinic in Marylebone has combined Frictional Radio Frequency and Micro-needling to create a brand new service called 'Explore/Scarlet'. It results in 'skin tightening, improved skin texture, pore minimisation, wrinkle reduction, acne scar reduction, improved skin tone, improved skin brightness and skin rejuvenation." Read more here.
