There’s an amazing new spa option in town …one well worth visiting.
Sorbet’s one of our go-to spots for manis and pedis, but now it’s opened Sorbet Sk-n … and it’s fabulous!
The first of these upmarket salons specialising in personalised, premium skin care has just opened in Hyde Park. A chic, sleek spot with shades of grey and white and touches of light wood, with a young, enthusiastic and well-trained team … it’s exactly what we want from a spa.
Sorbet Sk-n focuses on a select few treatments, personalised for your specific needs. Clients booking for a facial receive a complimentary Visia Skin Analysis – multi-spectral photos of the face which show everything from wrinkles and spots to pores and underlying UV damage. This shows the therapist exactly what’s needed, and where.
So it could be Microdermabrasion (silk peels) – for brightening, pore clarifying, hydrating or with a punch of vitamin C. Or one of the exceptional Exuviance facials for boosting and firming, or clarifying acne, or age reversing (oh, yes please!). The salon offers Dr Schrammek Green Peels, which we’ve heard rave reviews about, and a comprehensive list of laser hair removal options for men and women, with your initial half-hour consult free of charge.
One of our favourite – and massively effective – treatments offered is a Dermapen treatment … it really does work for acne and scarring, for pigmentation and stretch marks, for skin ageing and sun damage. Yes, there are needles. No, it doesn’t hurt in the slightest – bar a little redness there’s no down time and you generally see results after the first session.
Sorbet Sk-n has also joined forces with a local doctor who visits the salon once a week, offering Botox and fillers.
Prices are comparative with other spas giving similar treatments … and the therapists offer solid guidelines as to how many specific treatments you’ll need to treat a problem area, which is fantastic … no guessing about timelines and costs.
You’ll find the salon at Hyde Park Corner. Details 010-880-5444.
