Whether you want instant radiance or a complete skin overhaul, here are the best facial treatments that employ both technology and a healing touch.

If you want serious results, book in with machine queen Kate Wheldal-Schonfrucht, a skincare expert who's transformed faces worldwide. As much a lesson in skin as a 'facial', Wheldal-Schonfrucht will make a personalised skincare programme for you, as well as addressing your needs there and then with advanced cosmeceutical products and the latest, safest gadgets. While always bespoke, expect extraction, oxygen infusion, specialised radio frequency and LED light therapy, plus hands-on lymphatic drainage. Without ties to any particular brand, she cherry-picks and concocts the best active ingredients to use throughout which awaken lacklustre skin, or remedy and rebalance over-stimulated skin. Her knowledge and skills are second-to-none as you can try yourself at Cosmetica London, or via an at-home visit.

If you want the absolute skin works without any downtime, book in at the Teresa Tarmey atelier in West London for the skincare specialist’s signature facial. Within the hour your skin will be treated to a thorough cleanse, gentle lactic acid peel (to brighten), some radio frequency (to tighten), cryotherapy (to de-puff) and manual massage (to sculpt). The machine queen also uses a brand new system by Venus called Glow to hydrate the skin in the most efficacious way. It’s the exact facial the pro will be treating lucky A-listers to attending the Oscars this awards season – so get in there first.

Pale, wintry skin is rarely interesting, the dull hue, fine lines and broken veins telling little more than a season of parties past. Step forward laser-happy Debbie Thomas and her photo facial, whose triple-pronged skin rejuvenating treatment deep cleans, clears and smooths away any sign of late nights, weather-beaten walks and central heating. While the massage and pampering may be lacking, this hour-long treatment makes up for it by way of a results-focused line up including a seriously deep cleanse and glow-getting peel, IPL (to rid of any broken capillaries, rosacea and acne) and ResurfaceFX laser (to resurface lacklustre skin) – capped off with vitamin C to speed up any downtime.

Queen beauty bee Nichola Joss is the go-to gal for the likes of Kate Moss and Meghan Markle, and at her residencies in London, LA, New York and Toronto you too can book in for her signature facial massage.

Her latest treatment introduces customers to her favourite skin supplements Lumity, by use of their Facial Oil and sample pills to take away so you can glow on (and on).
