I was recommended to The Retreat by a friend. I currently have Monthly ChromaClear facials. My skin has radically cleared and my skin breakouts have stopped. This treatment leaves my skin smooth and glowing. I also use the Dermalogica range of skin care products at home.
Overall the client experience is excellent. The Retreat staff are friendly and make a genuine effort to get to know you and your skin concerns. I quite happily travel out of my local city to have treatments at The Retreat!

I enjoy regular CACI Non-Surgical Face Lifts. They effectively give a mini lift with general tightening of my skin, lifted features and improved skin tone. I also find this treatment very relaxing.
I have been having treatments with the Retreat for a number of years and have always experienced great results. The Retreat therapists are very knowledgeable in the variety of treatments they offer and always make you feel welcome and relaxed. The Retreat is really convenient to get to in Derby City Centre and the evening appointments are ideally suited to the working person. Prices are always competitive with frequent special offers - but most of all The Retreat team always provide great service and the treatments give great results. I would recommend the Retreat without hesitation.

I have been attending the Retreat for some 2 years for a Monthly Dermalogica facial and over this time have experienced a considerable improvement in the condition of my skin.
Since I suffer from Rosacea and have particularly sensitive skin which is prone to allergies. I have to be very careful which products I use and find the Dermalogica ones to excellent.
I would not hesitate to recommend The Retreat to a friend because, apart from the high standard of the Dermalogica treatments and products, the friendliness and helpful advice from the staff make the experience particularly relaxing.

I have been having the Dermaquest Pumpkin Peels to improve the condition of my skin and eliminate dullness and scars. I have noticed a significant difference in the brightness of my skin and also the condition and texture. I would definitely recommend these treatments, especially after comments made to me about the improvement of my skin.
I have been coming to The Retreat for a few years and the treatments are never rushed and are carried out with care and professionalism. The whole experience makes you feel valued and makes you want to visit again.
A.M Age 68, Female
For the past year I have been having a combination of CACI Non-Surgical Lifts and CACI ChromaClear, although I have had the CACI Lifts for 14 years.
I find that the treatments are very effective, non intrusive and painless with excellent results - smoothing out the skin and making me look younger. I get many comments on how young I look, especially from people who know my real age!
I choose The Retreat because they provide a very good, caring service. The treatment rooms are relaxing and peaceful. I never feel rushed and the therapists are caring yet professional. They keep up to date with the latest treatments and products and pass that information on to me.
C.C. Age 35, Female
I have recently completed a course of CACI Chroma Clear Facials and I am currently using the Dermalogica ChromaWhite products.
I chose these treatments as I was experiencing pigmentation marks on my face. After the treatments my skin is clearer and smoother and the marks are lighter. The products help prevent further darkening of marks.
The Retreat is very convenient for me as I visit the gym. The Retreat is always very clean, and is a friendly, relaxing environment. My therapist is very professional and knowledgeable.
J.B. Age 62, Female
I have the CACI Non-Surgical Lift once a month after completing the course last year. After treatment my skin feels lovely and soft, the face appears uplifted and firmer and the treatment itself is very relaxing and pampering.
I have recommended two people to The Retreat and they were both more than pleased with their treatments and the welcoming atmosphere.
I feel that The Retreat team are very friendly and make you feel so welcome. It is so convenient to get to The Retreat by car or by bus as it's in the middle of town. What could be better than a shopping spree and then just pop into The Retreat for a relaxing treatment? Us women really deserve a pamper now and again. Thank you for a friendly and professional service.

The Retreat team make the salon a lovely place to have a treatment. They have a wide range of knowledge about all the treatments they offer. They explain step by step what they are doing and how to get the most out of your treatment and most importantly make you feel at ease and able to ask any questions.
I have had the CACI Non-Surgical Lift every month for 4 years. I would say compared to friends my age I have less lines around my eyes. I would recommend this treatment if you want to feel fresher and reduce lines on your face.
The Retreat is an excellent place to have any treatment. I couldn't recommend the staff more highly - I have never been disappointed, and I have picked up some excellent tips along the way.
D.S. Age 26
I have had the course of Dermaquest Pumpkin Peels followed by occasional top up treatments. I had them to reduce acne scarring and active acne. My skin after treatments was instantly smoother and the number of acne lesions reduced each time I had the treatment. My pigmentation became much more even.
I have recommended both my mum and my sister to have these treatments and they both felt and saw the benefits.
I enjoy coming to The Retreat as it feels like a personal and friendly service and the staff are consistent and remain professional and are always willing to give advice and recommend new and beneficial treatments.
I have been a customer for about 3 or more years and The Retreat have always been friendly, helpful and professional with excellent product and treatment knowledge.
M.D. Age 38, Male
I have a body massage around twice a month. I find that the treatment helps to relax and loosen the muscles. I choose The Retreat because they provide an excellent treatment and I find the whole experience excellent all round. I would certainly recommend The Retreat to a friend.

I have the Fake Bake Professional Spray Tan every couple of months for special occasions. I chose this treatment to stop using sunbeds but get the same results. The results are brilliant. The Fake Bake is a really natural looking tan.
The Retreat staff are friendly and professional, and it's convenient as I am a member of the gym. I also think their prices are very competitive!
V.S. Age 67, Female
I have regular CACI Non-Surgical Lifts and Manicures and Pedicures. I have these treatments to make me look and feel good and the CACI is a relaxing procedure. The CACI is non-invasive and helps stop my skin from ageing.

I have an eyelash perm and tint around every 12 weeks. I find the treatment make my eyelashes look longer and there is no need to wear mascara. It really enhances my eyes.
I choose The Retreat as they are friendly and professional and offer flexible appointment times.
B.W. Age 51, Female
I regularly have Calgel gel overlays every 3 weeks and been doing so for many years, latterly the glitter gel has been my preference. I also have Hopi Ear Candling around 2-3 times per year.
The gel overlays keep my nails very strong and I like the colours as I do not have to reapply nail varnish and they always look nice. The Hopi Ear Candles were recommended prior to flying. The results were that I had no pain when flying and my hearing generally improves after treatment.
I was originally recommended to The Retreat by a friend and I have been coming ever since. I have been happy with The Retreat and will continue to have my treatments there.
