LED Facial Treatment mask by Dr. Rita + Hydrafacial and Lymphatic drainage
Willow Stream Spa, Fairmont The Palm Dubai
I love hydra facials. They literally suck out all the gunk from your pores, extract blackheads and whiteheads and any pesky little unwanted things that poke out of your skin. My skin has been looking a bit dull lately, so I booked in a facial to try Dr. Rita’s LED facial treatment mask. Now, to be absolutely honest, I didn’t know what to expect.
First of, I needed a bit of deep cleansing and extraction, so she decided to give me a lymphatic drainage massage and hydrafacial before commencing with the brightly-coloured mask. Lymphatic drainage effectively reduces puffiness from the under eye area, sculpts your jawline and speeds up the removal of toxins. You can always tell if a person requires a lymphatic massage if their face is puffy, they have dark circles, and suffer from sinus congestion. The lymphatic drainage facial involves a lymph-specific massage that moves from the centre of your face to under your chin, near your clavicle, or behind your ears, where your lymph nodes are located. The facial revitalises your skin health on a deep level, helping your immune system too.
Once done, the hydrafacial begins to tackle everything from fine lines and wrinkles to skin texture, elasticity, tone, congestion, pigmentation and enlarged pores. It starts with a gentle face scrub, followed by a suction pipe that literally pulls out all the gunk from your skin – it’s quite a relaxing feeling as the therapist moves upwards from your neck to your cheeks and forehead tugging your skin slightly. A serum is applied to target pigmentation and congestion on the T-zone and chin, after which the extraction takes place. This time around, it’s with a stronger suction pipe and I can feel every blackhead being pulled out – gross, but the results are incredible. Once done, the therapist uses the removal tool to extract anything too deep. Skin is cleansed with a warm towel, followed by serum and then the ultra-cool, celebrity-loved LED facial mask is placed on.
My therapist used the the yellow setting for ten minutes, to activate toxin elimination, improve decongestion and stimulate lymphodyte production, followed by the green mask to regulate melanin production, reduce pigmentation and redness. The results are instant. Once serums, eye cream and lip balm are applied on, skin looks hydrated, cleansed – take a look at your nose after – and radiant.
