Four Weddings & A Facial

It’s May. 

It’s nearly June. 

More importantly it’s (drumroll)…Wedding Season!

So be the most beautiful bride this summer, or her equally wondrous wedding guest, with the Carbon Laser Peel, and get yourself pigmentation and sun spot-free and glowing.

Bride and groom - first dance
Get the “I Do” gleam, whether you’re saying the words or celebrating the fabulous nuptials with your loved ones.

I’m Look Lovely London’s Mystery Client and here to routinely tell you all about what the ladies at Look Lovely London offer in terms of treatments.

So, first up, ladies and gents, my favourite facial of all time…

The Carbon Laser AKA – Hollywood Peel!

Now, once upon a time, I lost my peel virginity to a pumpkin enzyme treatment in Los Angeles. 

After moving back to England, peels became more of a staple in my beauty routine, especially as my skin (hello ageing!) became drier, more pigmented and experienced new issues, like enlarged pores.

Enter Look Lovely London and their Hollywood Peel.

So at first, when the word “Hollywood” was pitched to me I was like- uh, is this some kind of salesy title- but low and behold, I discovered it was universally called that because stars in Tinseltown, like Angelina Jolie, swear by it.

I did feel very Hollywood, as I lay down on the couch and got some delicious black goop smothered over my face and then crackle, crackle, like a magical wand, Christal, their top aesthetician, did her thing. 

In scientific terms, the “thing” was applying liquid carbon to my face, then passing over it with a laser.

The instrument looks somewhat like a Guy Fawkes sparkler but it feels more like a warm tickle with a rod of emitting light.

There’s a crackling sound that emits during the procedure but, after a while, the vibrations are rhythmic and pleasant.

The comment I made to Christal was- “wow, it feels like my skin is waking up!”

Christal did a few passes on my visage, first with the carbon mask and then without it. 

She explained how it was targeting the top layers of my skin and honing in on my imperfections.

I could even direct her to which sections of my face I thought needed further attention.

She then explained to me other benefits of the facial, like it stimulating collagen, and said by accumulating sessions over several months stubborn pigmentation and even acne scars could be successfully dealt with. 

Oh, and you can get your neck done too, which I highly recommend because it really gave me that overall youthful “wow” glow.

Fast forward to the procedure being completed, ta-dah, and my face being cleansed and calmed. 

I was a little nervous about seeing the results but when I was handed the mirror…

It was like someone had lit a bulb under my skin! 

No joke, it was glowing

Of course, I had previously heard there was no downtime to the Carbon Laser peel but I can confirm there really was absolutely none. 

There was no need to hide away from society that night and I took my newly polished face and hit the town and got a load of flattering comments about how healthy and dashing I looked.

Hey presto! 

Yes, the Carbon Laser peel took my face to a much more luminous level. 

And here’s what the big winner was for me- the effects lasted longer than any peel I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a lot). 

After three weeks or a month, my pores were still smaller and I was more glowy than when I first walked into the office. 

This peel lasted, folks! 

Even on the skin tightness and skin tone front.  

And that’s all from your crafty insider, for now.

Next post, I’ll be discussing Botox.

Have a fabulous May!

Welcome To The Team Christal! Discover Our Huge New Range Of Treatments Arriving Exclusively This Autumn

Skin care treatments from CrystalLook Lovely London is excited to announce that we will soon be welcoming Christal Walstead, LE, CLT to the clinic.  Christal is trained in advanced aesthetics, with a particular interest in rosacea, hyperpigmentation, anti-ageing and acne.

Currently based in Chicago, Christal will be joining us at the clinic in October, and we can’t wait to welcome her! With  extensive training in microdermabrasion and medical grade chemical peels, having Christal as part of the Look Lovely  team means we will be widening our range of treatments to include the following:

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is a popular treatment used to improve the skins overall appearance. A chemical solution is applied to the skin which encourages exfoliation and the top layer of skin to peel. Once the skin has peeled, a new, rejuvenated layer is visible which typically appears smoother and less wrinkled than the old layer.

Chemical peels can also be used to improve the appearance of acne, hyper-pigmentation and ageing. Dermaplaning can be used in addition to the chemical peel to further the results and stimulate new skin development.  Microdermabrasion treatments can also be used in conjunction with peels to reveal younger, healthier looking skin.


Micro-needling reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimises pores and improves the appearance of scars, as well as the overall quality of skin. Micro-needling works by creating controlled punctures in the skin using very fine needles. The body then responds by creating new skin cells, so you are left with skin that looks younger and healthier.

There is very little downtime involved with this treatment, so you can achieve great results in no time!


Tailored to suit your skin, this rejuvenating treatment immediately reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The HydraFacial also targets acne, hyper-pigmentation, blocked pores and uneven skin tone, so your skin will appear smoother and more even. The treatment includes hydradermabrasion, light chemical peel, and LED light therapy.

If you are short of time, why not try our Express HydraFacial? Complete with LED light therapy this treatment cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates your skin in half the time. Perfect for a lunch break skin treat!

PRP (Vampire Facial)

Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment, also known as the Vampire Facial, can be added on to the end of your rejuvenation treatment to enhance the effects. By using additional plasma topically, the effective concentration of natural healing substances and growth factors is increased, boosting results!  Make sure you allow for an extra 15 minutes on top of your treatment time for this procedure.

If you would like further information on any of the new treatments that are coming soon, give us a call on 0203 199 8245 and we will be happy answer your questions and provide any advice you need.
