Aesthetics clinic develops facial for frontline workers inspired by the power of touch

During COVID-19, touch has largely been removed from our daily lives and yet it’s essential for emotional health
– Dr Rosh

An aesthetics and wellness clinic has launched a new facial treatment dedicated to key workers on the frontlines of the pandemic.

Developed at KLNIK, in Cheshire, UK, the new facial came to fruition after the clinic’s co-founder, Dr Roshan Ravindran, and his team offered free virus tests for NHS and key workers.

After meeting so many inspiring individuals, Dr Rosh wanted to give something back and decided to create the 40-minute Nightingale Facial.

The experience is offered free to NHS and frontline workers and is designed to bring a meaningful and comforting connection between the therapist and client, focusing on the power of touch.

“One of the key motivations behind the Nightingale treatment is the presence of human touch,” said Dr Rosh.

“During COVID-19, touch has largely been removed from our daily lives and yet it’s essential for emotional health.”

The treatment begins with the location of pressure points in key areas including the neck, shoulders and chest.

The face is then deeply cleansed and treated, followed by a warming Dermalux LED session which hydrates, smooths, soothes irritations, stimulates blood flow and leaves a natural glow.

This part of the experience is also combined with an arm and hand massage.

The Nightingale treatment is concluded with the opportunity for guided breathwork to benefit mood and overall wellbeing, as well as a balm inhalation experience.
