Fire and Ice Treatment
“This treatment is more like a chemical peel than a facial as it gives deep, long-lasting results without any downtime.
Because these products work at deeper levels in the skin, they truly target wrinkles, pigmentation and problems with tone and texture – leaving your skin tighter, firmer and positively glowing with health and vitality.”
Dr Joachim Stolte
This intensive clinical facial is designed to rapidly and safely resurface the skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing, softening, and encouraging cellular renewal. The centrepiece of this remarkable treatment system is a combination of two therapeutic masques.
The extremely powerful INTENSIVE RESURFACING MASQUE is clinically formulated with: sugar cane extract (a source of glycolic acid) (18%), citric acid, apple extract, retinol (vitamin A), niacinamide (vitamin B3), and potent antioxidants – including green tea extract.
The second masque is the REJUVENATING MASQUE which is a soothing hydrating treatment formulated with sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), aloe vera, green tea extract, licorice extract, grape seed extract, and rosemary extract.
Also available: iS CLINICAL® skincare products.
Fire and Ice Facial by MEDfacials, Cornwall
The Fire & Ice facial treatment has been the top-selling treatment each year for the last twelve years at the Four Seasons, Beverley Hills.
The Fire & Ice is a firm favourite of Gwyneth Paltrow and Halle Berry and uses iS CLINICAL® products, used by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Shay Mitchell, Jessica Alba and more.
The Fire & Ice can also help clear acne and improve acne scarring, as part of a treatment program, in conjunction with our cosmeceutical skincare products.
What happens during the treatment?
The “Fire” portion of the treatment is an Intensive Resurfacing Masque clinically formulated with 18% unbuffered glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, vitamin B3, retinol and potent antioxidants, including green tea extracts.
The treatment is applied for two-five minutes and is designed for use on the face, neck and décolleté – with a strong fragrance of cinnamon. The warmth that comes with this part of the facial is pleasant and tingly, and lasts for two to three minutes.
The “Ice” portion is a rejuvenating, cool, soothing and intensively hydrating masque with hyaluronic acid, Japanese green tea extracts, aloe vera gel, liquorice extracts, rosemary extracts and grape seed extracts.
This second masque cools the initial peel to leave the skin invigorated and glowing and is applied for about 5 minutes. After a final cleanse, a moisturising serum and a strong sunscreen are applied to the face.
What are the results?
The Fire & Ice treatment gives the skin a deep cleanse, leaving it with a beautiful glow. Your skin will feel plumper, smoother and more hydrated, leaving you ready to face the day.
This treatment is great as a one-off skin rejuvenation treat, but for more intensive and long-lasting results, we recommend a program of six to optimise your skin.
Are there any side effects?
Mild redness may be experienced by a few patients but generally you can return to your daily activities straight away.
As your skin has been newly resurfaced, we recommend using a mild non-abrasive cleanser or other mild product for five days following the procedure and also wear sunscreen and avoid prolonged or direct sun exposure.
