Katherine Jackson Facial Review

Who is Katherine Jackson?

Facial Review – A renowned facialist, Katherine Jackson started out her career in nursing. Diversifying her skill set to become a fully qualified acupuncturist, practitioner of Chinese medicine, shiatsu and reflexology specialist, she moved across to beauty therapy over 30 years ago.

With her conventional medical background and extensive complementary training, Jackson’s treatments incorporate lasers as well as ultrasound technology and take an all round approach to skincare. Known for her facials that promise to leave skin glowing and healthy through the integration of various therapies, no two treatments are ever the same and appointments are personally tailored to individual client needs looking at how the mind and body affect the skin. What does a Katherine Jackson facial involve?

Based in a discreet but slightly out of the way Fulham location, Jackson’s no-frills set up certainly doesn’t pretend to compete with one of London’s five star hotel spas in terms of luxury, instead the focus is on results-driven treatments and a holistic approach to skincare.

Serene and ageless, Jackson is blessed with an empathy and a tranquillity that instantly relax clients and instil real confidence. Using her own skincare line (shortly to be more widely available for purchase), after detailed lifestyle analysis, Jackson gets to work to thoroughly cleanse and decongest skin. Taking a gentler approach than many extraction focused treatments, there’s no steaming or squeezing. Following an initial peel off face mask to soften the skin, the majority of Jackson’s facials focus around her signature pore cleaning vibrating system. Literally pushing dirt out of the pores as well as lifting sebum and dead cells from the surface of the face, the system leaves skin squeaky clean and instantly renewed.

Promising to rejuvenate the skin and promote ongoing collagen production, facials also use cold laser in conjunction with one of Jackson’s own serums to encourage deeper product penetration through the epidermis to help repair and plum skin cells. Rounding off each appointment with pressure point targeted massage, Jackson’s treatments are designed to leave clients with glowing skin as well as feeling fully relaxed.

Does it work?

‘Leaving dehydrated winter skin revived, a visit to Jackson may be fairly pricey, but it’s definitely a worthwhile investment’ our tester reported back. ‘My face was visibly smoother and cleaner and my complexion looked less tired. Staying at bay for a good few days post treatment, the dark circles under my eyes definitely needed less concealer.’ ‘If I could afford to book in on a regular basis I certainly would. Not only do the results speak for themselves, but spending an hour or two with Jackson is a wonderful way to unwind and instantly calm the mind.’ Red Rating: 9/10
