A SOUTH Tyneside salon owner has become the first in the region to offer the “next generation” of facials.

Fiona Lamb has taken delivery of an Elemis Biotec machine.

Now, after two of her beauticians underwent specialist training in its use, her salon Relax and Glow in Front Street, Cleadon, is able to offer the latest in facial treatments.

It is a service which popular spa brand Elemis has allowed the salon to have exclusively in the area.

The machine delivers seven different treatments designed to re-boot cellular performance and enhance the skin’s ability to repair, renew and re-tone.

Mrs Lamb said: “We are quite excited with this new machine. We first launched it at a recent fundraisier and it was received really well by our clients.

“As a salon owner, I aim to be at the forefront of new innovative treatments. This has been a real financial investment and it’s great we have been given exclusivity of the machine for the area.”

The machine aims to give a deeper facial compared to those offered manually by working deeper into the skin cells and muscles.

Manager at the Cleadon salon, Beverly Brown, said: “The girls who have been trained in the use of the machine are so motivated.

“They underwent three days of intense training and they came back filled with enthusiasm for the product.

“People can either come in and have a one-off treatment or come in for a course. There is even a treatment for men.”

Each treatment targets specific skin needs using five different technologies – light therapy, micro current, ultrasonic, O2 infusion (compressed air) and galvanic (using positive and negative charged ions).

There are seven treatments to choose from including: Triple-tec anti-wrinkle, Micro firm-a-lift, sonic skin resurfacing facial aimed at reducing blemish marks and smooth lines, sonic skin radiance facial to energise tired, dull and stressed skin, L.E.D blemish control to clear and re-balance oily skin, O2 sensitive skin soothing facial and super charge facial for men.
