Have you looked in the mirror recently and wondered what has happened to your skin?
You'd almost got used to the larger pores and the teeny lines around your eyes.
Suddenly, it seems to have changed.
It's like you've done the first couple of stages on a journey. You'd just gotten comfortable on a train when the conductor announces, "All change, please. All change". But your journey hasn't ended, so now you have to get yourself onto a bus, and figure out where and how to get to your destination. It can be confusing, so you need to concentrate on how you're going to get to where you want to go.
Your skin is no different. You're at a different stage of your life, and your skin changes rapidly around menopause. You see it yourself in those deeper lines that seem to be multiplying. In the drier skin.
It's hard to figure it out on your own. Your products, the skincare routine you're comfortable with, your makeup ... nothing seems to work anymore.
It's time to stop, and get to know your skin again. To take a personalised approach. To have a science-based skin analysis and face mapping done, available to you online, so you can access it even if you are not in Woking. You can cut out the whole trial and error process you did in your 20s and 30s, and get straight to the point with our skin analysis.
You will understand if each of your skin care problems is linked to the products you have been using, or your age, health, or lifestyle or even your skincare routine.
Once you know this, it is so much easier to manage the causes of your skin care problems, and to move forward along your skincare journey towards that attractive skin you truly want.
Truly, YOU DESERVE to stop struggling with your skin care problems. YOU DESERVE THIS REAL, AUTHORITATIVE GUIDANCE on YOUR skin.
Time is moving on. It's time, isn't it, for you to prioritise yourself? To stop being bowed down by these skin care problems. To see the light at the end of the tunnel?
Your first step
Wouldn't it be great to have someone shine a bright light on YOUR skin care problems. To do a skin analysis to explain how you got here. So you can understand what you might do differently to manage your skin better. To take that first step towards real improvements to your skin. So you can stop worrying about it.
Check out the many reviews at the end of this page. So many women have already benefited. So can YOU.
Dr Susan looks really closely at your skin. Slowly. Looking at each section, one by one. She makes notes. She may ask you questions based on what she sees.
Then, when she is done, she will explain what she has found, and you have a chance to ask her questions.
Below are some of the skincare issues that she can consider:
You may think you know your skin type, but your lifestyle may obscure your true skin type somewhat.
Dr Susan will identify your true skin type, and tell you if this has been obscured. This is important because your true skin type can influence how you age.
In particular, Dr Susan will consider:
Often the condition of your skin can be confused with your skin type. But they are different. When you know the difference, you start understanding what you can change, and how you can do that.
Some skincare issues that can be considered include:
A third factor that influences how your skin looks is your skin age. How old is your skin saying you are, and what can you do about it? In particular, Dr Susan may consider:
Clients are often surprised that she can tell from their skin if they are stressed, not sleeping well, not eating properly, not drinking enough water, or even eating too much chocolate!
Your skin is an open book to Dr Susan. Her deep understanding of your skin means that she can really give you a personalised skin analysis and make recommendations that can help your skin easily and quickly.
Most face mapping for skincare map your skin type and skincare problems. Then the facial you get is based on one of these skincare problems . You may decide to get, for example, a firming facial if you have fine lines.
At A Touch of Spa Beauty Salon, you get far, far more than this when Dr Susan maps your face as part of her skin analysis.

Joan: I had my first ever facial with Susan. She gave me very detailed information on my skin and how to look after it in future. I left feeling 15 years younger (and looking much better too). I left with a spring in my step and look forward to seeing her again. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and would urge others to try her.
Dushy : What a great experience!! Susan spent time analysing my skin before applying a bespoke combination of facial care. I could see the difference straight away. Really good quality service. Will definitely be back!!
Joy: Just had another fantastic facial at A Touch of Spa. Lovely relaxing environment, and a truly amazing customised facial from Sue. Sue spends time analysing your skin and selecting the best products to give your skin what it needs. The time she spends assessing your skin is not knocked off your overall treatment time, like it is at some places, either. The results are amazing. Best facials I have ever had (and I've had quite a few over the years). Would highly recommend.
Karina says: Susan has fantastic hands! My facial was relaxing and extremely informative. A real in-depth consultation that I have not had anywhere else. Highly recommended!
Philippa : This was the first time I had ever had a facial before and I loved it! I have never felt so relaxed. and I learnt so much about my skin and how to properly care for it. It's left my skin feeling so soft and smooth. Thank you so much Susan! Will defiantly recommend to all my friends!
Rachel : Thank you so much Susan. I came in not really knowing anything about my skin or what it required and I have left feeling like I know exactly what I need to do now thanks to your very thorough analysis! I'm glowing. And I even got and email with all the info I may need in the future for how to deal with my skin. Very relaxing experience start to finish!
Anna : I had such a fantastic experience! I loved that my treatment was tailored to my specific skin type (which is combination and very sensitive). I also loved the detailed analysis of my skin and the follow up email; a very unique and fascinating service offered! My skin felt so good afterwards! Susan is a delight and I will definitely be going back, especially for that wonderful cup of fruit tea
Zoë : I came in today thinking I had a mixture of greasy and dry skin - how wrong was I! Turns out I have very dry skin and so Susan kindly created a bespoke facial for me, starting with a gentle and then vigorous exfoliation to focus on removing any dead skin. I'm not sure how long the massage oil was used on my face because quite honestly I nearly fell asleep I was so relaxed. Various other carefully chosen treatments meant I left with skin feeling dewy, plump and refreshed - not only that but a chat at the end meant I knew exactly what products I should be looking for on the high street that would fit within my price range. Would recommend Susan and her magic hands to anyone without any hesitation.
Emma says: oh my goodness, what an amazing experience! I've been on spa days and had facials before but with those you walk in, and they slap goo on your face. Instead, presented an incredibly detailed inspection of my skin under a bright lamp, and then prescribed a tailor made facial to suit my woefully dry and sun damaged skin. interesting that I've never before been told that my skin is super dry, or that the products I use are not sufficient. Susan was really professional and knowledgeable, and the treatment room is warm and welcoming, and a herbal tea at the end was a nice touch. after a series of delicious smelling things being applied, a blissful face, neck and arm massage and hot towel, I wafted out feeling amazing-and my skin looks really radiant. Definitely recommend-I'm just gutted I live so far away that I can't go monthly!
Eve says: very individual approach to what products were used. Susan's facials are wonderful. I have never before had my skin examined so thoroughly, and, as she is not tied to a particular brand or procedure, she creates a truly bespoke facial based on what she observes. Susan has a professional manner and excellent hands; as a result, I come away from her treatments very relaxed, and my skin reflects the benefits for some time afterwards.
Dr Susan is a scientist. She went to University for 8 years to complete first her BSc and then her PhD. It's rare to find a scientist in a beauty salon, and to be truthful, Dr Susan is only here because she retired from her 9 to 5. Now she wants to give something back. And YOU are the lucky person who can benefit, if you choose.
Dr Susan brings with her that depth of more than 40 years of scientific knowledge and experience that far exceeds what you see in the average beauty salon. So she is able to analyse your skin properly. To explain why you have these skin care problems.
The only question is .. Are you willing to take advantage of this golden opportunity?
I know, friend, that you're probably fed up of your facial skin care problems.
But playing blind man's buff with it is not really going to help that much. Sure, you may accidentally hit on a solution. But how long will it take? How much is it going to cost you in products that don't work? In worsening or new skin care problems? Is that worth it?
So the real question to ask is how invested are you in turning your skin care problems round? How ready are you to take action that can help you deal with them?
The skin analysis appointment lasts 30 minutes. Within that time, Dr Susan will examine your skin, but you also have an opportunity to ask her your burning questions. To get the answers you have been searching for.
Knowledge is freely available - through the internet, for example. But the wisdom that Dr Susan has to put together and understand that knowledge - now that's priceless.
Actually, you can. Our skin analysis is done via the internet.
Your skin analysis can be done from the comfort of your own home, or from a quiet place on your lunch break. It just takes 30 minutes of your time. And you walk away with so much!
We often have several skin care problems at once. The skin analysis can cover them all.
Your skin is an organ, just like your heart or kidneys. It's important to recognise when it's not happy, and to understand why. So you can keep it healthy.
You will need a phone, kindle or computer to access the internet. For the appointment, it is best if you are not wearing makeup. You will need to sit facing a bright light, and have whatever device you are using propped so your full face is visible. Don't hold it, as your hands may wobble. You will need to bring different parts of your face closer to the screen when requested.
Not to worry - you will receive full instructions when you make your appointment.
