IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE FILO CLINIC
The Filo Clinic is a nurse-led skin clinic founded by Christina and Ryan Lumor – and it has just opened in Dublin. Here’s everything you need to know …
There’s a new skin clinic in town. The Filo Clinic has just opened in Dublin after its success in Cork, bringing a wealth of experience to the aesthetics arena. The Filo Clinic is a nurse-led skin clinic founded by Christina and Ryan Lumor, both registered nurses. Its USP? To take a fresh look at the world of skincare aesthetics – and leading the way in catering for all skin types and championing diversity.
“We’re proud to be the first aesthetics clinic in Ireland to wholeheartedly embrace the concept of diversity,” says Ryan Lumor. “We’ve witnessed the challenges faced by people with diverse skin types, where they often struggled to find effective and welcoming solutions. The Filo Clinic is here to change that narrative.” The Lumors’ priority is inclusive skincare innovation and a fresh, holistic approach. “Everyone is welcome at Filo Clinic – we carry very up-scale technology and so we are able to serve a very wide range of clientele,” notes Ryan Lumor.
The clinic’s founders, Christina and Ryan Lumor, both qualified in the Philippines, going on to gain extensive experience in the Middle East. Christina is one of Ireland’s leading laser hair-removal experts; she catered to the Middle East’s elite, including royal family members. The Clinic offers a comprehensive range of aesthetic services that cater to the diverse needs of their clients, from medical-grade facials to state-of-the-art laser procedures to rejuvenating therapies and bespoke skincare solutions.
The Filo Clinic is focused on enhancing the natural beauty and confidence of its clients – this is the opposite of a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Run by registered nurses, The Filo Clinic has the unique skincare needs of every individual at its heart: the aim is not a “quick fix”, but customised, longer-lasting results. “We are very much bringing the best skincare technology in the world to the Irish market. Filo is modernising the aesthetics field as we step towards more innovative skincare solutions,” notes Ryan Lumor.
Whatever your skin issue, The Filo Clinic can help to find solutions: it’s where innovation meets skincare transformation. Talk to The Filo Clinic’s experts about treatments to suit you, whether that’s non-invasive facelifts, deep cleansing facials, painless laser hair removal, the most advanced lasers to combat pigmentation and skin texture and much more.
THE TOP FIVE
Among Filo Clinic’s most popular treatments are:
1 The Lumors have seen a rise in popularity for injectable skin boosters such as Profhilo and HydroBoosters: “Skin Boosters provide a more natural, authentic and less exaggerated look than many of the better-known non-surgical treatments like Botox and derma fillers that often create over-inflated results and ‘freeze’ your features or stop muscle movement,” says Ryan Lumor.
2 BBL® + Moxi® by Sciton is a unique combination treatment that uses both Moxi and BBL Hero™ advanced skin lasers for dramatic results. A celeb favourite, Moxi refreshes and revitalises skin while improving tone, texture, and uneven pigmentation (Kim Kardashian apparently uses it to “remove sun spots and sun damage”). “This non-ablative laser delivers fractionated energy to help the body repair and replace damaged skin cells. It’s designed to treat pigmentation, age spots, sun damage, rosacea and redness. BroadBand Light targets imperfections on the surface and within the skin,” says Ryan Lumor.
3 Laser Hair Removal. The Filo Clinic use the Alma Soprano: Painless Laser Hair Removal method. Now is the perfect time to start a course of laser hair removal, whether the lip, leg, underarm or bikini area. Prices start from €35 for the lip area.
4 The Filo Glow Facial. The Clinic offers a wide range of facials dedicated to treating specific issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and dull skin. The renowned Glow Facial is a 14-step treatment that features a combination of salicylic, mandelic and glycolic acids to exfoliate the skin, as well as diamond dermabrasion to remove dead skin cells. €135 for 60 minutes. Filo even offer a Scalp facial, designed to deeply cleanse the scalp and stimulate cellular renewal, promoting healthy hair growth.
5 Softwave and Thermage are described as non-invasive facelifts. Softwave uses the latest technology to stimulate the body’s production of collagen to improve skin quality and firm skin on the brow area, face and neck.
