The Fire & Ice Facial Treatment

The Fire & Ice is a results led clinical facial treatment designed to resurface the skin, treat problematic skin, reduce fine lines and encourage cellular renewal.

A multi-step treatment with two professional treatment masques combined with carefully selected iS Clinical products to optimise results, the Fire & Ice is a treatment that bridges the gap between a mild facial and an invasive peel, all with no downtime.

iS Clinical Fire & Ice treatment

The Fire & Ice facial treatment has been the top-selling treatment each year for the last 12 years at the Four Seasons, Beverley Hills.

The Fire & Ice is a firm favourite of Gwyneth Paltrow and Halle Berry and uses iS Clinical products, used by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Shay Mitchell, Jessica Alba and more.

The Fire & Ice can also help clear acne and improve acne scarring, as part of a treatment program, in conjunction with our cosmeceutical skincare products.

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 five minutes and is designed for use on the face, neck and décolleté – with a strong 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, cool, 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. After a final cleanse, a moisturising serum 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 6 to optimise your skin.

“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.

Is this treatment right for me?

This will be discussed at your consultation and following your VISIA digital skin analysis.

The Fire & Ice treatment is suitable for all skin types, however if you are using any retinol or glycolic products, these should be stopped for one week before and after treatment. If you are using Roaccutane, this should be stopped for six 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.
