Yesterday, I had a facial at Dessange Paris. I usually do my own facials at home but recently my skin has been very temperamental so I decided to leave it to the professionals.
My skin is combination to oily, sensitive and prone to breakouts. Quite often the breakouts can leave marks, I also have 3 small scars from mucking around as a kid and a little pigmentation on my chin and nose.
As a result of all these elements, I elected to get the Dermalogica Medicated Clearing Facial. Once in the treatment room the lovely Elizabeth from Dessange examined my mug in detail. She informed me that my skin was not acne prone and so on but merely reactive, with blocked pores, a little pigmentation and overall in good condition. The Demalogica Medicated Facial would be too harsh for my skin and also unnecessary so she recommended the Elemis Tri-Enzyme Facial which would take 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Here is the blurb:
“The treatment pioneers the precision layering of 3 targeted enzyme serums to resurface the skin by up to 75 % thus stimulating biological cell renewal .In addition skin is smoothed by up to 32 % and the appearance of acne scarring ,pigmentation and lines are visibly reduced.”
Elizabeth began by cleansing my face and then used steam to open my pores. It was then cleansed again using a variety of different products, massaged and so on. After much of this she extracted blackheads from my t zone which was mildly uncomfortable and then immediately applied a face mask to my whole face. This part was a little weird as it felt like it was burning. She told me the mask would stay on for 7 minutes but that she would take it off earlier if it was too uncomfortable. I stuck it out as it wasn’t that bad and then a serum was applied, a soothing mask and then another serum!
Once we were done, I was so relaxed I could barely get off the bed. My skin was a little bit blotchy around the chin area but otherwise looked fine.
This morning however, I looked in the mirror and got a bit of a shock. My skin looks absolutely AMAZING, its so clear and even, the scarring has been reduced and its so incredibly soft.
I am so impressed with the results of this facial that I will be going back again in 2 months for a repeat!
