Sometimes the saddest thing about getting a facial is that the amazing post-facial glow only lasts a few days. Enter: skin gym.
Just like getting your body into shape takes training to get it where you want it, the legends at Ocean Cosmetics in Wembley Downs reckon it’s the same for your skin. Their skin solution gym program has been created as a consistent treatment plan that targets and treats your specific concerns. Over a three or six month-program, you’ll get one main treatment per month, followed by a relaxing luxury facial the following fortnight. The result is brighter, clearer skin that lasts—who doesn’t want that?
I was lucky enough to try the premium plus three-month program which included one BBL photo rejuvenation per month and one luxury facial on the alternative fortnight.
How Do The Sessions Go Down?
The BBL Hero treatment is all about reducing melasma, redness, scarring and fine lines. It uses intense pulsed light to target the pigment within the skin. What this means is that the pigment in your skin is initially darkened but over the next several days, it slowly flakes off and your body’s natural healing process will remove the pigmented cells and replace them with fresh, new, undamaged cells. The treatment basically felt like hot rubber band snaps to the skin – it was painful without being unbearable—but all done in about 30 minutes and I only had minor redness to the face afterwards.
The luxury facial on the alternate fortnight helps remove the dead skin cells and involves a good exfoliation, face, neck and shoulder massage, along with a hydrating mask, light chemical peel and LED light rejuvenation. Let’s just say that the luxury facial appointments fast become my favourite.
I saw a big difference after one BBL treatment (seeya pigmentation!) and by the end of the three months, I definitely noticed less puffiness, less pigmentation, less visible pores and way more plump and glowiness. At $490 per month, it’s an incredible way of keeping your skin in tip top condition so it looks good always, not just for special occasions.
