By all accounts, this is a wonderful time of the year! Cooler weather, winter rolling in, festivals, family time and holidays! But the seasonal change also brings in changes to your skin - the air is dryer, (also more polluted if you are living in a metro like Delhi/Gurgaon), and you are seeing the remnants of the skin damage from the brutal summer sun. So this is a good time of the year for skin intervention, and one of the best things you can do for a pick-me-up is get a professional, medically supervised facial. If what you need is a tune-up and overall brightening of your skin, our doctors have designed a combination treatment of Aqua Infusion and Infrared Therapy to help perk up your skin.
This signature treatment from Skin 'n Smiles is meant to address four key areas:
- Exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, dirt and clear out the pores, revealing a fresh layer of skin;
- Hydration to improve skin health, and make your skin soft and supple;
- Brightening to improve the skin complexion and reduce the appearance of dark spots and scars;
- Firming to reduce premature signs of aging like fine lines and improve skin's elasticity for younger and healthier looking skin.
Aqua Infusion is a super hydrating treatment that saturates your skin with moisture and essential nutrients, to increase suppleness and help diminish fine lines, leaving you with a plump and dewy complexion. Infrared therapy very safely and gently delivers precise dosages of energy to the skin to simultaneously repair collagen in the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin), while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis (top layer of skin).
The treatment begins with microdermabrasion - a gentle exfoliation of dead skin cells and sucking out white heads and black heads painlessly. This is followed by a jet spray using a specialised device which hydrates the skin, and aids lymphatic drainage to reduce water retention and tiredness. Your face is then pampered with soothing massage using aloe vera gel to hydrate and moisturize the skin. A cocktail of glutathione (an antioxidant that protects skin from free radicals responsible for skin pigmentation and blemishes) and Vitamin C are gently infused into the skin using an electroporation device which helps these potent skin rejuvenating and brightening agents to penetrate deep into the skin.
The next step is Infrared therapy. In this procedure concentrated infrared beams of light are delivered using a specialised device, where they penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate elastin and collagen production. Elastin and collagen are key proteins that help maintain both skin elasticity and firmness. The final step in your treatment is a soothing and relaxing mask.
This facial treatment is great for all skin types and you will get a brightened and glowing complexion even after the first treatment! Regular treatments, say once a month, will show continued improvement in your skin tone, brightness and overall skin health.
