Beyond Beauty Birmingham

Hi Everyone!

This week I was invited to the Beyond Beauty Bloggers Event where I was introduced to a whole new range of skincare that I had no idea existed. I was also lucky enough to try out some of the treatments and if you think you might like to too, then stay tuned as I have a 20% off discount code at the end of the post!

Beyond Beauty is a skin clinic that has been around for 10 years, however more recently they moved to their current location on Broad Street in Birmingham. This is the perfect location as you can combine a bit of shopping at the Mailbox with a bit of pampering at Beyond Beauty, only a 10 minute walk away!




Beyond Beauty offer a range of treatments at competitive prices from massages to laser hair removal and of course non-invasive skin procedures, with treatments starting from just £30. However what makes Beyond Beauty different to the rest is that they tailor everything to your particular wants and needs. They even combine treatments to make the most of the time you have with them. For example, you can have an arm and leg massage while wearing one of their LED masks, or combine two types of facials into one like I did! The girls really know their stuff and I came away feeling full to the brim of knowledge and knew what I needed to do to take my skin to the next level. 

So let me tell you a bit about some of the machines they use and what I had done.

My treatment first started with a facial mask which was mixed specifically for my skin needs. Whilst this was set to work I was then given a neck, shoulder and arm massage by the lovely Miriam (Seriously this woman's hands are magic and she has over 20 years' experience in the industry so I would highly recommend her). Once the mask had been removed, I then moved onto the next part of my treatment, the Geneo +, 4 in 1 'super' facial. It promises to exfoliate, infuse, oxygenate and tighten the skin. It reduces wrinkles and makes the skin brighter along the way. Think of this as a very deep exfoliation using oxygen with a bit of radio frequency in between to stimulate and tighten the collagen in the skin. I didn't know what to expect when it came to the treatment but the only way I can describe it, is it felt like little scratches all over the skin, which is actually the machine removing the dead skin cells and pumping it full of oxygen bubbles. At worst, it felt uncomfortable but not painful, and it actually felt like something was working on my skin!

Venus Freeze
Once the treatment was complete, the skin was cleansed and we then moved on to the next part of my treatment which used the Venus Freeze. This particular machine can be used all over the body and, unlike what the name suggests, it actually uses heat and pulsed magnetic fields to increase collagen and make the skin firmer. Christina (Skin Expert) then applied the Glycerin to the skin, and the Venus Freeze was rolled over it in circular motions very quickly at a temperature of 39 degrees. It feels like a very hot sensation but because it is being moved around so quickly it does not burn at all. I particularly enjoyed when this was smoothed over the eye area as it felt quite relaxing. As the machine beeped this signified the end of my treatment and I couldn't wait to see the results!

Before I even looked in the mirror my skin almost felt like a mask. I could feel the difference. When I looked in the mirror I was so happy with the results. The biggest difference for me was the brightness and plumpness I could see straight away. However on closer inspection I could visibly see some of my lines and wrinkles have reduced too! The price for the combination of treatments I got would come to around £150, but you do get what you are paying for. They recommend a course of five treatments (around £500) and I think it is definitely worth it! These treatments are for somebody who is serious about their skincare and wants to see visible results, rather than someone looking for relaxation and pampering. 

Beyond Beauty also offer other treatments such as laser or IPL hair removal, the DermaCo Pro system which offers diamond tip microdermabrasion and LED masks which you may have seen a few celebrities boasting about on their Instagram. All treatments I want to try next!



I have to say I was particularly impressed by the professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail the staff gave. I would be happy to receive any of their treatments, so much so I've booked in again next week! Very generously, Beyond Beauty are offering my readers 20% off any of their treatments, just quote code : #BBLASERUK16 when booking.
