FAQs – It’s ok to ask for more information – you’re in expert hands!
Am I suitable?
Nimue is globally recognised for its four skin classifications of:
- Environmentally Damaged – skin that demonstrates the clinical signs of premature ageing with sagging skin and lines and wrinkles.
- Hyperpimated – skin that presents an uneven skin colour, age spots or dark spots and patches – all influenced by internal and external factors.
- Problematic – skin that is prone to oiliness, breakouts, acne, and enlarged pores.
- Interactive – skin that displays temporary damage through ill health such as rosacea.
If your skin exhibits any of the above then the treatments are perfect for you!
Does it hurt?
The biggest misconception is that any peel will cause pain on application, redness and burning. Apart from a slight warming sensation during the Thermal Detox Peel with Alginate Mask, there is absolutely no discomfort or downtime.
How long does it take?
The treatment in the clinic takes around one hour and are carried out following an individual consultation to deliver maximum results that follow the four main principles of Nimue, namely results to ensure:
- Rejuvenation of the skin using their unique AHA concept delivered to the skin that creates structural improvements – yes, please!
- Restoration – the ingredients within the AHA concept function to restore any imbalances within the skin – sounds great!
- Anti-Oxidation – the combination of the ingredients neutralise the effects of pollutants in the environment that affect all of our skin – yay!
- Sun Protection – all treatments have sunscreens and advanced ingredients for optimal protection against UVA and UVB rays – essential!
There are two treatments on offer in the clinic, the Thermol Detox Peel with Alginate Mask and the Bio Active Complex Facial Peel.
