Renowned beauty brand Yon-Ka is now available at Tullamore salon Olivia’s Nails Body Beauty on Patrick Street. Yon-Ka aromatic treatments for face and body use only the best of natural ingredients offering a unique aromatic experience. Yon-Ka has 50 years of expertise through a wide array of holistic, custom treatments providing instantly visible results.
Yon-Ka Face Treatments include Cleansing, Hydration, Anti-Age and Wellness while Body Treatments offer Exfoliation, Hydration, Silhouette and Wellness.
Olivia and her staff have been specially trained in Yon-Ka treatment techniques to ensure you feel the complete benefits of these wonderful therapies. Recently we went along to Olivia’s to try out Le Grand Classique facial which is a deep pore cleansing, restoring and relaxing facial. This is a fundamental facial to indulge in once a month to keep skin healthy and in top condition.
Olivia carries out a skin test first to make sure that the Yon-Ka treatment is suitable for your skin type. Once that has been determined it is then time to relax and enjoy all five stages of La Grand Classique. The first step is an aromatic compress followed by two warm mists with five essential oils. The double sensation of the warmth and the lovely scents is very relaxing and immediately there is a sense of wellbeing and the treatment is only starting!
The next stage is a plant-based soft gel peel which Olivia administers with great dexterity and gentleness, all the time explaining the different stages and benefits and the names of the different essential oils and plant extracts being used. This is followed by a peeling and the gentle elimination of blackheads.
The most relaxing stage is the wonderful massage of the face, neck and décolleté using the most beautifully scented ingredients, if you don’t drift off during this stage then you really need to work on your relaxataion techniques. Olivia has the wonderful knack of knowing when to chat and tell you information and when to lapse into silence and let you make the most of the peace and quiet and the gentle rhythm of the massage.
An eye contour mask is then applied, which again allows you time to rest and relax and the final stages involve a purifying mask with aromatic compress for face and neck followed by Aromatic Freshness Awakening which is very aptly named. La Grand Classique can be customised for each client’s specific skin type and condition. It is recommended for any age and centres on Yon-Ka’s exclusive deep cleansing regimen. Each of the five steps are carried out with the utmost care using the special oxygenating aspects of the 5 Quinntessence essential oils (lavender, geranium, rosemary, cypress and thyme).
The Yon-Ka range of treatments offers assistance for all skin types and skin of all ages. So whether you are a student, stressed out after the recent exams, a busy working mother or a woman ‘d’un certain age’ then there is a Yon-Ka facial especially for you.
If you are experiencing tightness, stinging or if your skin has become rough and lacklustre (a sure sign of a cry for help) then the Hydralessence long lasting deep hydrating facial would be of great benefit to you and your skin. For the more mature lady there is the Optimizer Lifting and Firming Facial, an anti-aging treatment that acts like a “personal trainer” for the skin. By stimulating the skin’s natural regeneration processes, it optimizes firmness, reduces wrinkles and fine lines and intensifies your natural glow. What more could you ask for?
If you have dull, tired skin then there is the highly technical anti-aging treatment called Alpha-Vital which is a resurfacing AHA-BHA treatment, this is available from October to March only specifically for dealing with skin during the colder months. Under the rejuvenating, intensively moisturizing action of controlled fruit acids, the epidermis is gently regenerated, cellular renewal is intensified, the complexion is cleared, wrinkles and fine lines vanish.
Once you have completed your salon treatments there is a full range of products available at Olivia’s Nails Body Beauty which you can then use to continue the experience at home. There are soft peels and masks, luxurious and intensive ‘fountain of youth’ treatments that tackle virtually every eye and lip area problems, of which Phyto-Contour with rosemary extracts is probably the best known as it works wonders on dark circles, puffiness, lack of tone. Also available from Olivia’s Nails Body Beauty are Yon-Ka skin boosting concentrates. A few drops can be used to tailor your favourite day cream or night-time product into a ‘haut-couture’ skincare treatment.
