You and Your Wedding - - Look Amazing -

The lat­est wave of fa­cials em­braces LED tech­nol­ogy and prom­ises to plump our skin to per­fec­tion. We sent three Y&YW testers to try out the lat­est in beauty science.


Sig­na­ture Glow Boost by D Thomas Il­lu­mi­nate at Har­vey Ni­chols, £119 “As a bride-to-be, I’ve been NHHQ WR ÀQG D WUHDWPHQW to leave me look­ing dewy fresh. Sig­na­ture Glow Boost prom­ises to re­ju­ve­nate skin and boost stem-cell re­newal. A light peel was fol­lowed by col­la­gen-stim­u­lat­ing lasers which felt like tiny pin pricks – in most ar­eas I could barely feel them. An LED mask en­hanced the treat­ment. My lips were im­me­di­ately fuller and my skin looked no­tice­ably plumper. With min­i­mal red­ness, it’s ideal for a last­minute re­fresh treat­ment.” Laura Dean-os­good, sub-edi­tor


LED Lu­mi­nous Lift at EF Medispa, £150 “I had my LED Lu­mi­nous Lift treat­ment the day be­fore jet­ting to Barcelona IRU D ÀYH GD\ KHQ SDUW\ I knew my skin would take a bat­ter­ing, so wanted it to be in the best con­di­tion pos­si­ble. After a fa­cial, my tech­ni­cian cre­ated a se­quence of UV lights tai­lored to my skin. Vi­o­let light clears acne, and blue kills in­fec­tions and helps com­bat sea­sonal af­fec­tive dis­or­der. Yel­low light re­duces hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion, and the red and orange in­crease col­la­gen to get that per­fect plump skin that every­one wants on w-day. I left feel­ing re­ally re­freshed and ready to get the party started!” Kat Jennings, mar­ket­ing and events as­sis­tant
