An Australian celebrity facialist has shared her favourite treatment for delivering glowing, hydrated skin in record time – and Pip Edwards is a fan.

‘It oxygenates the skin, firms and tightens with radiofrequency technology and delivers super hydration with an ultrasound for that perfect finish,’ Ingrid said.
The three-part treatment exfoliates and oxygenates, smooths fine lines and wrinkles while tightening and firming lax skin on the neck and face.
In addition it also improves skin tone and texture to brighten and rejuvenate for that ultimate glow.
There is no redness or down time after the $235 facial treatment which uses cutting-edge technology to transform the epidermis.

Outside of the salon Ingrid hails vitamin A, hyaluronic acid and daily SPF on the face and neck as the ultimate beauty treatments.
‘You need to think of your skin regime like your workouts, maintaining consistency is key,’ she said.
The in-demand aesthetician says women over 30 ‘must’ use vitamin A, also known as retinol, an anti-ageing ‘hero’ ingredient that accelerates healing, slows the breakdown of collagen and promotes hydration, leaving skin looking years younger.
‘Retinol is hands down the most important ingredient to incorporate into your skincare as you get older, followed by Vitamin C and peptides for tightening,’ she explained.
‘It has huge benefits in terms of reversing damage to the skin at the same time as encouraging healthy cellular function.’

How does the treatment work?
The treatment is broken down into a three-part program.
Part one uses Oxygeneo technology which oxygenates, exfoliates and increases cell metabolism.
Part two is Tripolar Skin Tightening using effective Tripolar Radio Frequency to tighten and firm the jawline and other lax areas that have lost their firmness due to collagen loss.
Part three is an ultrasonic infusion of highly active ingredients for skin brightening, targeting specific issues such as acne, aging, or hyperpigmented skin.
But retinol’s potency means it comes with a health warning.
First-time users often report mild irritation, including redness, dryness, and peeling of the skin, which is why Ingrid recommends consulting your beauty therapist first.
‘Choosing the right one should be discussed with a professional, and it’s best used in serum form nightly,’ she said.
The other ‘miracle’ ingredient Ingrid says plays a pivotal role in winding back the clock is hyaluronic acid, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by locking moisture into the skin.
‘Women in their 40s and 50s need tightening and firming ingredients like amino acid peptides and hyaluronic acid, which help to maintain hydration,’ she said (Jessica Rowe pictured)

According to Ingrid, the final piece of an effective anti-ageing skincare routine is wearing a liberal layer of SPF on your face, neck and décolletage.
The expert revealed 90 per cent of her clients list sun damage as their primary area of concern.
It is so prevalent she has developed a treatment specifically designed to stimulate cell regeneration and collagen production across the neck and chest in the Geneo Super Facial.
