Difference between Open House Skin & GERnétic Facials

Here at LBBS, we understand that everyone has unique skin care needs and preferences.

That’s why we offer two distinct approaches to treating your skin to ensure you get the outcome that suits you best.

Open House Skin offers holistic, evidence-based skin treatments that considers overall body health, supported by clinical devices and medical-grade skincare with a relaxing touch. Customized to each client's needs, treatments may include enzyme/chemical peels, LED light therapy, microdermabrasion, ultrasound vitamin infusion, and extractions. They are ideal for all skin types, addressing specific skin concerns and providing bespoke, results-driven treatments in a comforting and welcoming environment.

Gernetic is a corneotherapy brand that protects and nourishes the skin using non-invasive treatments with minimal exfoliation, relying on vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. Their facials feature massage, masks, lymphatic drainage, relaxation, and hydration, making them ideal for those with aging skin who prefer a natural, non-invasive, and wellness-focused skincare approach.

By offering both options, we ensure that our clients can choose the skincare regimen that best suits their individual needs!

Meet Kai - Open House Skin

After eight years in the beauty industry, I started Open House Skin after seeing the need to provide luxurious, results-focused and inclusive skin treatments. Prioritising my clients through thorough consultations allows me to be able to work collaboratively with you on your skin goals and needs without the guesswork. All treatments are completely bespoke, tailored to your skin on the day so no two treatments are the same because no two skins are the same.

I look forward to welcoming you into my home away from home and starting your skin journey!
