Medik8 Facials Precare, Aftercare & Consent

Precare, Aftercare & Consent

As Medik8 Professionals we offer an extensive treatment repertoire from youth-enhancing facials, relaxing spa-like facials to medical grade peels, there really is a treatment for everyone!

All of our Medik8 Facials begin with a Lumi Spa Surface Radiance Cleanse. Following your double cleanse, we then apply the Medik8 Scientific Mushroom Thermal Exfoliator™ which combines powerful exfoliation in next-generation scientific mushroom enzymes to restore a more youthful skin regeneration cycle. In addition, self-heating natural mineral Zeolite gently warms up on skin contact for a self-heating action - Heaven!

After spending 15 minutes relaxing whilst your tailored mask works it's magic, you will then go under the award winning Dermalux LED Therapy Light for a further 15 minutes before your treatment comes to an end with Ice Therapy!  A super cooling Ice Globe Massage with Medik8's vitamins & minerals will leave you feeling refreshed and renewed.  

Dermalux LED Therapy is a popular non invasive skin treatment for acne, sun damage, wounds, and other skin problems.

The treatment uses varying wavelengths of light to trigger the skin’s natural healing processes to repair the skin. Several treatments are necessary to see results.

LED is safe, non-thermal, nontoxic and non-invasive, and to date no side effects have been reported in published literature. In the 20 years that LED has been used in the medical and beauty industry, there have been no reported incidents of adverse reactions or damage caused by LED therapy.


  • Do not use active topicals that may increase the sensitivity of your skin such as retinoids, exfoliants, topical antibiotics or acids 3 days prior to your treatment.
  • Avoid ANY other facial treatment at least 7 days prior to your treatment.
  • Avoid extensive sun exposure / the use of tanning beds at least 7 days prior to your treatment. 
  • Likewise, avoid Hair Removal at least 7 days prior to your treatment.
  • In addition, please make sure you are not wearing makeup on the day of your treatment.


  • Straight after your appointment your skin may feel a little sensitive and over the next few days you may experience some dryness/flaking and a 'tight' feeling to your skin.
  • If you have a lighter skin complexion, your skin also may appear a little flushed.
*Very rare, but should you have a mild reaction to products used on your skin in todays treatment, I would advise taking an antihistamine morning and night for the next 3 days and apply a gentle hydrating moisturiser up to 3 times a day to minimise dryness/further irritation. Do not apply any retinals/acids. Mild reaction symptoms will subside within 72 hours. Between us both we can then pinpoint which ingredient it is that your skin doesn't agree with, so be sure to let me know :)*

  • To minimise dryness, skip out on any 'active' products for 3 days after. (i.e Retinal + Acids)
