FLINT+FLINT AT HARVEY NICHOLS

The concept of Flint+Flint is different to your usual spa, which is why they call it an ‘Anti-Spa’. There’s no gloss, no white, no chrome, and no wood. Instead, dark and moody, hot neons and textured surfaces, where highly skilled aestheticians, nurses and doctors recommend and deliver a wide range of treatments, from relaxing facials to the more serious stuff, like acne or scarring treatments. There is also, waxing, laser hair removal, injectables, oxygen and Dermapen treatments.

A range of bespoke facials use Flint+Flint skincare products to invigorate and repair your skin and leave you with a renewed, healthy complexion.

I was invited along to try the COMCIT facial by Crystal Clear, which combines Cryo Oxygen, Microchanneling and Collagen Induction Therapy to combat ageing skin, acne, or to provide an instant lift.

COMCIT, the very latest in anti-ageing technology, has four simultaneous modes of action and is designed to stimulate collagen production. This skin rejuvenation facial offers instant visible results without surgery, and results improve even more after four to 14 days, once the collagen is produced.

 

How does COMCIT work?

Cryo Oxygen 

A CryoProbe discharges cold oxygen through an internal peltier system and onto the skin, without any feeling of discomfort. The cold oxygen rapidly cools the skin and stimulates the micro-circulation, positively increasing blood supply and thus providing nutrients necessary for the stimulation of fibroblasts required for collagen production.

Microchanneling Roller 

A Microchanneling Roller is moved over the surface of the skin to create microscopic pinpricks and induce controlled micro-trauma to the skin. These pinpricks create columns/pathways within the epidermal junction, which encourage the skin to produce more collagen and elastin, and allow for the product to penetrate into the skin.

Product infusion 

The COMCIT serum, packed with active ingredients, penetrates the columns/pathways and drives ingredients down into the deeper layers of skin, where the promotion of new collagen growth and great skin health begins. The pinpricks close almost immediately as the skin heals and the skin becomes, thicker, plumper and more youthful.
