Fusion Health, Beauty & Aesthetics

August 2021 blog

It's been hot hot hot in the salon. The heated treatment couches have been turned down and I've had my wall fan on full speed for most of July. Whilst the poor hairdressing team are sweltering with dryers in hand, our downstairs treatment rooms have been a sanctuary for getting away from the heat.

I've been reading about how we're set to see a new trend in stripping back the multitude of ingredients in our beauty and skin products. I'm feeling quite proud that Fusion's been ahead of 'the game' regarding this - I've been saying for a long time that many products (both high end and high-street brands) have so many ingredients that adverse skin reactions and long-term sensitivity are becoming more common.

August's update is full of tips and goodies to spoil yourself with. Find out about skin purging, ease your upper back tension, meet the latest member of the Fusion team, stock up on some skin care through our online shop and book a treat. A perfect excuse to put your feet up for half an hour.

Enjoy and we'll see you very soon

Skin Focus - Skin Purging

So you’ve had a new facial or started using a new skin product and within a day or two you notice your skin feels uneven and maybe looks worse than before. You may have had an adverse reaction but if we look more closely at what’s happening in your skin it’s more likely your skin is 'purging'.


Skin purging occurs when a product or process speeds up skin cell reproduction and can lead to tiny open or closed lumps that usually appear as white heads. Ingredients such as retinoids (vitamin A), Hydroxy-acids, chemical peels and micro-needling can prompt skin to purge. It can last from as little as 4 days to 6 weeks but on average is two weeks. You can continue to use the products or treatment as purging occurs only in the initial stages of your skin being exposed to new things.


Whilst skin purging isn’t necessarily an adverse reaction and can be seen as a positive thing, care needs to be taken to avoid the skin having a breakout of spots due to the purging. Avoid anything aggressive (such as exfoliators) or over-stimulating on your skin while your skin rebalances and avoid touching and picking at the skin. If your skin was irritated or weak before the purging you should look to use products that contain ceramides and hyaluronic acid in a non-oily base. Salon LED treatment can also be highly beneficial during recovery.


Some treatments actually work through purging so it’s important to understand that it can be part and parcel of getting the best results for your skin.


If you have any concerns about your skin get in touch or book a skin consultation (free of charge) to get some honest transparent guidance.

Clinical grade LED treatment also available (see this month's special offers)

Massage Corner -
Rhomboid Muscles &
Upper Back Pain

I see the same issues coming into the treatment room on a regular basis and over the next few months I'm going to address some of the most common complaints, the potential causes and what you can do to help your muscles and joints get back into shape.


This month I’m focusing on the rhomboid muscles, found between your shoulder blades. These pesky blighters, when damaged, are responsible for a lot of upper back problems. The most common symptom of rhomboid issues is discomfort between the shoulder blades or just above, towards the top of the back.

If you’ve been asked you to pop your hand behind your back during a back massage your therapist will be addressing rhomboid muscle tension. Massage is one of the best treatments for rhomboid damage especially if it includes infrared or heat treatment, but must only be applied once any initial inflammation has reduced.
