You might have heard about one of the most popular skin treatments in Hollywood for awards season prep: LED Light Therapy.
Fans include Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Adriana Lima, Kate Hudson and Chrissy Teigen (and a host more who want to keep their skin secrets to themselves!). Nicola Quinn Beauty and Day Spa is thrilled to announce their dedicated Light Lounge, where you can relax and let the LED work its magic, with treatments starting at $72.
“Not to be confused with laser, LED is a safe, painless, non-UV and non-invasive rejuvenation treatment for the skin,” skin guru Nicky Quinn says. “Developed by NASA to aid wound healing in space, the rejuvenation of healthy skin was an added bonus that has now become accessible as a skin treatment.”
The treatments use Light Emitting Diodes in various wavelengths over the skin, causing the cells in the dermis layer of the skin to convert that light into energy and use it as ‘fuel’. The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer then produce collagen and elastin, which give us the full, plumped look, as well as healing and regenerating the skin.
There is no thermal reaction and no downtime or healing required. It’s perfect for treating most skin concerns from fine lines and wrinkles, to reducing acne-causing bacteria, redness, sun damage and pigmentation, through to wound and scar healing. The result is a glowing complexion of plumped skin full of new collagen – perfect for leading up to a special event or holiday.

We know we love mindfulness for bringing tranquillity and focus to our on-the-go lives, and we love facials for their wonderful effects on our skin.
What we didn’t know is they can be put together to create a stunning holistic treatment for enhancement of both skin and mind to calm, refresh and inspire you. Christchurch’s own Nicola Quinn Beauty and Day Spa is excited to bring you their latest facial treatment, the Ginger & Me Skin-Mind-Power-TUDE Facial. Spa owner and Ginger & Me co-founder Nicky Quinn says, “We believe we are the first to offer this multitasking treatment – ensuring beauty starts from the inside out and taking you where no other facial has before”.
The treatment will take you through a guided mindfulness meditation session via headphones, guaranteed to empower, enlighten and allow you to choose your attitude (the way you do life), your altitude (what you get from life) your gratitude (how you acknowledge life) and your beauty-tude (the way you show up to life).
At the same time, your skin will take some time out with an indulgent and detoxifying facial, with your choice of an anti-aging, purifying, hydrating, or brightening mask. Ginger & Me also has a new range of powerful skincare products, working at a cosmetic-medicine level to counteract aging and skin stress.
This fabulous Mindfulness Facial is available for $149 at Nicola Quinn Beauty and Day Spa, open six days and until 9pm Tuesday to Thursday. Phone 03 355 6400 or book online at www.quinnbeautyspa.co.nz.
