Spa gazer: Medicetics, London W2

Beauty journalist Sarah Vine had a consultation with Dr Vicky Dondos and our signature Medicetics Facial. This combines a luxury facial with a mild skin peel to give a result that actually makes a difference. Read on for the full article.
What: Mene & Moy Glycolic Acid Peel/ Medicetics Facial
Where: Medicetics, 37 Connaught Street, London W2 (020-7402 2033; )
How much: £95 (six for £500)
This superficial chemical peel is the weakest you can have, making it popular with celebrities since it entails no embarrassing (and potentially costly) downtime. The whole process is distinctly weird, but it lasts only 3-5 minutes. After the skin is cleansed, the peel is applied. This feels a bit like being covered in itching powder, but the therapist quickly rubs it off. The peel is then rinsed away, and there is a burning sensation like a hot flush or deep embarrassment – and that’s it. The face feels baby-bottom smooth and not at all tight. There is no scabbing, but you must wear SPF30 for a few days afterwards to protect your skin. The results are excellent: lots of compliments, glowing complexion, no need to wear foundation. The whole process, including a 30-minute consultation, takes about an hour.
