I had a lovely chance attending the exclusive launch of Dermalogica’s new Ion active power treatment yesterday at the Above of Sofitel Dubai Downtown. The launch was hosted in collaboration of Glambox and Esthetic Sense. Presentation with all the details about Ion active power treatment followed by lovely breakfast during which we had a chance to try the treatment on our hands on the demonstration stands with friendly therapists from the clinic. Later, the representative and the therapist of the Dermalogica performed the live stage treatment on the face of a model, chosen right from the event.
So, let me explain what is this treatment all about to deserve an exclusive launch with the gathering of most influencers and bloggers in town. Firstly, it gives the immediate and visible results. Secondly, it combines thermal activity and the latest treatment-room technology to optimize product penetration for the dramatically-improved skin. Thirdly, it works with the skin’s natural biology to yield enhanced benefits.
Who needs it?
Women with premature skin aging, acne and dehydration know well that those skin problems require more intense and deep treatments which are time-consuming. Whereas, IonActive Power Treatment takes only 45 minutes and give the rapid results with no discomfort.
What is the process?
It’s always performed by a well-trained and experienced Dermalogica skin therapist. Each treatment is completely personalized according to results of skin analysis, which help determine which key active concentrates can be applied to the skin. Available concentrates are as followed:
Retinol to firm and reduce visible signs of skin aging.
Niacinamide to control and prevent adult acne breakouts.
Hyaluronic Acid to relieve dehydrated and/or sensitized skin.
Oligopeptide to brighten hyperpigmentation for a more balanced skin tone.
After applying the concentrates, the therapist chooses heating or cooling Gelloids (massage medium-masque hybrids) and the latest technology to drive ingredients faster and farther into the skin. Technology can range from Galvanic or High-Frequency modalities to Ultrasound and LED (Light-Emitting Diode) Therapy, depending on the needs. Don’t forget that the heating Gelloid is mostly used for a skin with aging and/or acne issues and the cooling Gelloid is meant for dehydrated and sensitive skin. The treatment is completed with UV – defense SPF 50 cream.
Dermalogica is available at Esthetic Sense Skin, Make-up and Hair salons where the full range of treatments and products are available.
