As someone who rarely enjoys wearing a full face of makeup and prefers more of a bomb lash look and lip gloss combo, I can admit my skin was not ready in the slightest for such a minimal look. My post-winter skin left me with intense dryness and redness from past and active breakouts that a layer of heavy foundation would only make worse. At times like these, it’s important to let your skin breathe. And because skin is the body’s biggest external organ, a routine effective skin regimen and diet is incredibly important to keep it healthy. So I teamed up with Glo Spa NY in hopes for a Spring glo-up!
My visit to Glo Spa was nothing short of welcoming and informative, an experience I haven’t had at previous facial spas in New York, whose main focus is up-selling products that aren’t necessarily tailored to my skincare needs. Luckily, I spoke with Sai, who was able to customize treatments for my skin issues and suggested we start with a Dermalinfusion treatment and alternate with a Jet Peel after two weeks. She answered some of the less obvious questions, which left me feeling assured and excited about the results!
What is Dermalinfusion?
Dermalinfusion is an advanced skin-resurfacing treatment that simultaneously exfoliates, extracts and infuses the skin with a condition-specific serum to improve skin health, function and appearance. Serums vary depending on what you’re targeting which can be anything from pore clarifying, boosting vitamin c, skin brightening, to ultra-intense hydration.
What person would benefit from this treatment?
Anyone looking to improve hyperpigmentation, dark spots, sun damage, signs of aging, acne prone, to dehydrated skin. Dermalinfusion is fully customizable which makes it great for all skin types! In addition, it isn’t exclusive to the face, making it an alternative treatment for stretch marks on the abdomen, buttock, or breasts.
What’s the downtime and how often can you get a Dermalinfusion treatment?
Besides a temporary slight flushed appearance immediately after, there is no downtime!
If you’re targeting a specific issue, we recommend coming in every two weeks for 4-6 treatments. If you’re looking more to just maintain, then schedule as needed.
When do you typically start seeing results?
Immediately after the treatment, you’ll notice an intense glow of hydration but more noticeable results in the following days. Though, a series of treatments deliver a more dramatic result over time.
Wow! The glow is real y’all. I felt like a Krispy Kreme donut immediately after my first dermalinfusion. The hydration lasted several days, with noticeably faded redness after a week or so. My skin felt plumped and looked radiant. It’s safe to say I was highly impressed after just the first treatment, so naturally, I was more than excited to try the Jet Peel just two weeks later.
What is a Jet Peel?
JetPeel is a non-invasive, multi-step transdermal skin infusion system. It’s a supersonic jet stream of water and oxygen that gently removes natural skin debris and exfoliates dead skin cells. It oxygenates the tissue & stimulates micro-circulation and lymphatic drainage.
A Jet Peel infuses natural Alpha Hydroxy, Glycolic, and Salicylic Acids, as well as vitamins and Aloe Vera, deep into the skin’s Dermis, for a gentle but effective peel, without the typical post-peel scaling.
Who would benefit from a Jet Peel?
Anyone looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tones, dry skin, dark circles and under eye bags, sun damage, loose skin, enlarged or congested pores, and acne should consider trying a Jet Peel.
Is there a downtime?
No downtime or skin irritation. It delivers immediately visible results and is great for all skin types!
Okay, so my initial reaction to the Jet Peel was, “WHOA!”. It felt like an intense, ice cold, high-pressure hose blasting my face. It’s not at all the most relaxing, meditative experience to say the least. However, the results are truly amazing! Immediately after the Jet Peel, I felt fresh and squeaky clean, like that feeling you get after running your car through a car wash. The days following, I noticed a difference in texture and my skin felt smoother and softer, leaving my foundation to slip on like butter. It was such a satisfying feeling!
After completing both the Dermalinfusion and Jet Peel treatments, my skin remained intensely hydrated, healthy, and radiant and I was closer to my spring glow goals. I would totally recommend anyone looking to improve their skin texture and overall appearance to give these treatments a try. Thanks to Glo Spa NY for the friendly reminder of how important it is to maintain and invest in your skin!
