Fire & Ice Skin Resurfacing Facial Treatment
The Fire & Ice Treatment is a results led clinical facial designed to resurface the skin, treat problematic complexions, reduce fine lines and encourage cellular renewal. This multi-step treatment includes two professional treatment masques combined with carefully selected iS Clinical cosmeceutical skin products to optimise results. The Fire & Ice treatment bridges the gap between a salon facial and an invasive, clinical peel, with the benefit of no downtime. This treatment can also help clear acne and improve acne scarring, as part of a treatment program, in conjunction with the cosmeceutical skincare products from iS Clinical.
The Fire & Ice Facial and Is Clinical products are a firm favourite of such A-listers as Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jessica Alba and many more.

What happens during the treatment?
The “Fire” portion of the treatment is an Intensive Resurfacing Masque clinically formulated with 18% unbuffered glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, vitamin B3, retinol and potent antioxidants, including green tea extracts. The treatment is applied for up to five minutes and is designed for use on the face, neck and décolleté – with a fragrance of cinnamon. The warmth that comes with this part of the facial is pleasant and tingly, and lasts for two to three minutes.
The “Ice” portion is a rejuvenating, cooling, soothing and intensively hydrating masque with hyaluronic acid, Japanese green tea extracts, aloe vera gel, liquorice extracts, rosemary extracts and grape seed extracts. This second masque cools the initial peel to leave the skin invigorated and glowing and is applied for about 5 minutes and includes a super cooling Ice Roller facial massage. After a final cleanse, targeted serums, Youth Eye Complex and a strong sunscreen are applied to the face.
What are the results?
The Fire & Ice treatment gives the skin a deep cleanse, leaving it with a beautiful glow. Your skin will feel plumper, smoother and more hydrated, leaving you ready to face the day. This treatment is great as a one-off skin rejuvenation treat, but for more intensive and long-lasting results, we recommend a program of 4 to optimise your skin’s condition.
This treatment is more like a chemical peel than a facial as it gives deep, long-lasting results without any downtime. Because these products work at deeper levels in the skin, they truly target wrinkles, pigmentation and problems with tone and texture – leaving your skin tighter, firmer and positively glowing with health and vitality.
Who can have this treatment?
The Fire & Ice treatment is suitable for all skin types, however if you are using any retinol or glycolic products, you should discontinue use of these for one week before and after the Fire & Ice treatment. If you are using Roaccutane, you will need to discontinue use for 6 months prior to having the Fire & Ice treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Mild redness may be experienced by a few patients but generally you can return to your daily activities straight away. As your skin has been newly resurfaced, we recommend using a mild non-abrasive cleanser or other mild product for five days following the procedure and also wear sunscreen and avoid prolonged or direct sun exposure. We stock a range of products from Is Clinical that will optimise the effects of your Fire & Ice Skin Resurfacing Facial Treatment.
