Review: Ingrid Raphael London
Beauty is my passion. Those are the words of Ingrid Raphael, a medical aesthetician and cosmetician in Hackney.
Ingrid knows vast amounts about skincare – so much so that she has been running an airy, relaxing shop in the area offering facials/skincare for ten years.
The treatments you receive are agreed with you after an analysis of your skin. They can range from personalised facials that create a beautiful complexion whatever your skin condition, to reviving facial treatments designed to help you relax and unwind.
Rather than picking from a menu of options, you simply tell your therapist how long you want you facial to last (costing between £44 and £184) and Ingrid takes care of everything else.
Treatments are complimented by a range of unique products such as SkinCeuticals, Medik8 and Niod.
My 90-minute facial included an intensive face and head massage; peeling and cold jade rollers; a nourishing and moisturising mask; and a dermapen treatment. The change and renewal in my skin was visible the following day.
Ingrid knows that each person’s skin has different needs, which is why every Hackney resident must visit for her professional know-how and expert bespoke care. For further information, visit her website. ingridraphael.com
