If you are looking for skin confidence, to be able to look in the mirror and love the uniqueness of your skin, then keep reading.
You have probably tried numerous products and treatments available in stores and clinics, looking for the one that will be exactly what your skin needs. The chances are, unfortunately, that you have been left feeling confused, disappointed and hopeless while your skin remains looking the same or worse. 
Here at Norwich Face and Body Clinic, we want to let you know that we hear you, we see you, and we are here to help both you and your skin finally find exactly what you need.
Firstly, we appreciate that you are not a skin specialist. Even with all the helpful information we provide on our ‘Facial Concerns’ and ‘Specialist Facial’ pages. At NFBC we always recommend having a Skin Therapy Consultation with our Advanced Skin Specialist, Lauren, in order to discuss your exact concerns and needs. At Norwich Face and Body Clinic, we appreciate and embrace the individuality of our clients and their skin concerns. With so many factors affecting skin health, we aim to provide an individual service tailor maid to meet the needs of each client.
Some of the main concerns we see our clients struggling with are:
-Ageing, lack of volume, fine lines and wrinkles-Acne-prone, oily or congested skin-Chronic redness and/or rosacea-Hyperpigmentation, melasma and acne scarring
We treat these, and more, with a combination of homecare products and in-clinic treatments to ensure the best results.
Attending a Skin Therapy Consultation with Lauren will allow her to tailor a specific plan just for you and your skin. This will lead to the creation of your Signature Facial; a treatment that will be precise, straightforward and, most importantly, create the results you are looking for.

What makes The Signature Skin Prescription Facial different?
We start with a Skin Therapy Consultation and Skin Analysis. Lauren will consult with you, one on one, to discuss a multitude of possible affective factors such as your health, diet, lifestyle and skincare regime. We will proceed to scan your skin by the world’s most advanced skin detection equipment; our incomparable Skinscan Analyser. Using full face imaging the analyser will detect up to ten kinds of skin problems in your current skin, as well as predict your future skin and your personal ageing trends.
 
Lauren’s knowledge combined with the custom report of your skin’s health, created by the Skinscan Analyser, will allow us to:
-Establish the cause of of the skin concerns
-Relate it to the skin’s function and current condition
-Create a singular signature plan, where the combination of home and in-clinic products/treatments will be prescribed based on your exact personal needs.
 
How does it work?
It is essential to understand that skin regenerates on a 28-day cycle. This means that every four weeks your skin cells move from the bottom of the epidermis to the surface of your skin. The epidermis slows down the loss of moisture from the dermis. This lower layer of skin is composed of collagen and elastin and by keeping it hydrated will help your skin to look younger and healthier. This is why a proper at home skin routine is so crucial. This will also help to prepare the skin for in-clinic treatments, allowing them to work to their full potential. 
The resurfacing treatments that we use in The Signature Prescription Facial are specifically designed to pass through the top layer of the skin and target the deeper ;ayer. Thus creating rejuvenation in your skin as opposed to removing the top layer of skin, which many traditional skin peels utilise.
 
What ingredients are used?
The ingredients include alpha and beta hydroxyl acids as well as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, vitamins and trace elements. They assist in stimulating cellular repair and turnover. This contributes to the increase of collagen production, improving elastin fibres, tyrosinase inhibition and sebostatic control, as well as regulating and suppressing the symptoms associated with sensitive skin. 
The action of pHformula is totally different from that of conventional peeling treatments. Peels mainly cause skin exfoliation, whereas pHformula controlled resurfacing will actively promote cell regeneration in the various skin layers, all while reducing skin trauma and superficial irritation.
