There’s no denying that acne is fast catching up with fine lines and pigmentation to become a major skin concern for women in their mid-twenties and thirties. Except this time around, it’s even trickier to treat. As we age, sebum production starts to slow down which means most over-the-counter spot gels can be too drying on the skin. Enter the Jet Peel 3, the latest treatment that’s helping to improve problem-prone skin, without stripping it of essential oil and moisture.
To find out more, we hit up clinical cosmetic nurse specialist, Bernice Ellis from Sydney’s Shape Clinic Darlinghurst.
Why is the Jet Peel proving such a hit?
“Stress, diet, lifestyle changes and hormonal fluctuations can cause breakouts and that’s where a series of exfoliation, using the Jet Peel, can assist with clearing congestion, including blackheads and blemishes” advises Ellis.
What makes the Jet Peel different from regular at-home exfoliation?
“Unlike a facial scrub, the Jet Peel is designed to exfoliate without scratching the surface layers of the skin. Instead, it uses a tiny hose-like applicator to flush the skin with salt water and oxygen to clear the pores and slough away at dead surface cells,” explains Ellis. “The nozzle-applicator also means that we can move around the contours of the face, to target problem areas like the jawline, the back, chin and nose,” she adds.
On a scale of one to 10, what’s the pain factor like?
“Zero! The beauty of the Jet Peel is that it’s completely pain-free and has zero down time,” says Ellis. “Plus, you can reapply your makeup straight after the session, making it the perfect lunch-time treatment,” she adds.
How much will the treatment set you back?
“To really decongest the skin, you want to aim for at least four treatments scheduled one to two weeks apart, but because the salt water is so hydrating, it also works wonders for dry skin in need of a booster,” advises Ellis. “Reason being, the exfoliation not only helps to reveal the brighter, more radiant-looking cells, but it also helps the skin to absorb the skincare products that follow more effectively,” she continues.
The Jet Peel 3 starts from around $220 per treatment.
