WHEN you visit a spa for a facial or peel, how often does it deliver the results it promised? In our experience, rarely. Which is perhaps why new clinic Flint + Flint at Harvey Nichols describes itself as an 'anti-spa'.
All their products are formulated in the UK to the highest standards, using many of the active ingredients in medical dermatology products.
It looks different. The aesthetics are dark, moody and edgy. But more importantly, it does things differently – with an emphasis on only delivering treatments that actually work for your skin.
Treatments are administered by aestheticians and nurses who give a science-based explanation for every service offered. And the owners, Adam and Maxine Flint, have more than twenty years’ experience in the skincare industry.
In this time, they've carried out more than a million skin treatments, so they know exactly what works and the transforming effect skin health has on peoples’ confidence.
All their products are formulated in the UK to the highest standards, using many of the active ingredients in medical dermatology products. Yet unlike most medical products, theirs are easy to use and cost a lot less.
They include everything from Flint + Flint’s own range of bespoke facials – great for exfoliating, nourishing and purifying – to collagen micro-needling treatments to improve the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
The emphasis on results rather than on twinkly music and feminine scents means Flint + Flint is popular with men as well as women. That's good news for guys who feel their skin needs some attention but wouldn't feel comfortable in a traditional spa environment.
And it's good news for girls who want more than just pampering from a spa visit. If you're making a New Year's resolution to sort out your skin health in 2017, Flint + Flint is the place to start.
Flint + Flint is open now in Harvey Nichols. Find out more.
