Inner-Soul is all about boosting inner confidence through treatment of your skin holistically to nourish, balance, protect and enhance the best you through both natural and medical approaches. For instance, we don't believe in simply smoothing out a frown line with Botox, we will also help you to nourish your skin alongside this sort of treatment. There really is something for everyone!
What is the meaning of holistic?
Holistic treatments are designed to deal with the person as a whole, taking into account background information such as lifestyle and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a problem. This is why your visit to Inner-Soul begins with a full assessment of your age, wellbeing, health and lifestyle, as well as the main skin or aesthetic issue.
How do I know what type of treatment I need?
It can be tricky to work out what type of skin we have and if it is unbalanced, what kind of treatment it needs. You may have spent lots of effort and money on treatments and skin products which you find are not working for you, and yet your issue could be partly due to a diet or lifestyle issue. Unless we address the root cause the problem will remain. A consultation with Emma will help to clear up any confusion about your particular problem and pave the way for a clear treatment pathway to happier, healthier skin and a more confident you.
What happens during a visit to Inner-Soul?
Emma carries out all assessments and treatments herself or with assistance from one of her colleagues.
Initially Emma will take a full history and then devise you an individual plan to meet your specific needs. For example, if your issue is naso-labial lines, a peel, dermal filler injections and some skincare may be the best option for you. For acne skin problems, the treatment plan will involve dietary as well as various skin treatment input depending on the type and severity.
What chemical treatments are on offer at Inner-Soul?
Due to her nursing qualification, Emma is fully trained and insured to treat the skin chemically in a number of ways, including through use of aesthetic injectables and skin rejuvenation treatment including skin peels. Emma uses high quality product and always aims for a natural look for her clients. These types of treatment will smooth lines and scarring giving you a rejuvenated, refreshed look.
What natural treatments are on offer?
Emma holds qualifications in aromatherapy and skin nutrition, giving her the knowledge to apply natural and organic extracts to nourish skin, whatever its needs at that time. The Inner-Soul Uplift Ritual Facial, designed for Emma's individual clients, uses this approach and for use at home. Emma is also able to advise you on the best dietary and lifestyle approaches to help improve your skin.
How does Inner-Soul natural skincare work?
Our skincare product origins are always based in science and are rich in natural molecules called antioxidants, found in certain plants and flowers. These molecules have scientifically proven benefits to skin, such as mild sun protection and prevention of free radical damage, which can lead to dullness and skin ageing. We are against animal testing and have only conducted studies on willing humans!!
What is a Flavonoid?
This is a type of antioxidant which give plants their colour - generally speaking, the deeper the colour, the higher the flavonoid content. Flavonoids effect our skin in many positive ways and are clinically proven to reduce inflammation*, protect from discoloration, and improve elastcicity** , whilst reducing the formation of skin wrinkles ***. Examples of Flavonoids present in our skincare products are Genistein, Catechin, Quercetin and Isoflavines, each bringing unique skin benefit.
