I’ve been making rampant visits to the dermatologist owing to new-found skin problems like uneven skin-tone and pigmentation. I also did mention this concern a few posts ago. I’ve made an insane amount of changes in my everyday routine- drinking fresh cold-pressed juices, downing glasses of water down my throat, exercising and following a strict skin-plan as prescribed by my dermatologist.
You can find my dermatologist at Kosmoderma skin and hair clinic- on Lavelle road. She introduced me to another routine that I’ve planned to devoutly follow- the medi-facial. Medifacials follow a thorough analysis of your skin, and your doctor will recommend which treatment to go for. Hence, these are not your regular Gold/Pearl/Fruit facials which don’t really suit everybody and have a limited lasting effect, but instead are tailor-made for your skin and involve deeper penetration to correct underlying problems. It is pretty much like renewing your skin.
Quick heads up- Medi-facials involve the use of a few chemical peels and laser machines while doing the procedure. They hydrate the skin, add moisture and gently exfoliate and revitalize the skin with the help of brightening serums. Other benefits include- relaxation, prevention of bacterial breakouts and anti-aging properties. There’s a wide array you can choose from- Whitening, Anti-acne, Hydrating, Collagen, De-tan, Anti-aging, Instant glow etc etc.
I was recommended the hydrating facial with intense moisturizer, since my skin was seemingly very dry. My treatment involved a jet peel and an instant glow chemical peel. The jet peel is a jet technology which is a new kind of natural, non-invasive relaxing and painless skincare treatment with outstanding results. The basic principle is simple – pressurized air accelerates a jet of micro droplets and this micro jet is used to gently and painlessly cleanse and exfoliate your skin. The jet delivers moisture, vitamins and nutrients into your skin (no needles involved!). It was then followed by a zit-removal procedure and a thick chemical peel. This entire process lasted about 50 minutes. By the end of it, there was no sign of irritation or redness either. I was let off with a generous smear of sunscreen lotion. I picked up a few products from the counter which isn’t available anywhere else- I got their cleanser, detan lotion, sunscreen lotion and a fruit enzyme mask. I actually forgot to pick up their Moisture-blast moisturizer, I’ll actually go pick it up sometime later today.
Overall, my experience was…enlightening, to best put it. I saw that my face looked a bazillion times better and felt healthier. I also realised that I’m gradually shifting towards medicated facials as opposed to the regular ones. And once I’m comfortable with it, I’ll go in for better skin treatments that include laser. The cost of the facial was just a little over Rs.5000, which I think is absolutely worth it for such outstanding results. But I suggest, go for a package of maybe 4 sessions- it not only gives you great results but also works out nearly 40% lesser cost! They do have a lot of offers going on, so you can go by and check it out for yourself.
