The treatment is an all-natural, virtually painless skin treatment procedure that dramatically improves the appearance and texture of your skin
We’ve all had one – a facial where our face is steamed and we lie there wincing as blackheads are squeezed out of our pours.
Then layer upon layer of cream and ointment is applied before we are sent on our merry way smelling like the Perfume Shop – and with a very red nose.
Don’t get me wrong, extraction is vital but I often wondered what it was actually doing for the youthfulness, glow and elasticity of my skin.
At the ripe old age of 33, I won’t say my skin is bad. I have never really suffered from spots and I am blessed with young-looking skin.
But the stress of work and a lack of sleep (admittedly sometimes burning the candle at both ends) has left me looking a little less youthful of late – and I felt I needed a reboot.
I’ve been noticing fine lines under my eyes and an overall more dull appearance. Coupled with that is the onset of Vitiligo, a skin condition which has left my naturally dark skin dotted with white patches, and I have been feeling quite down about my appearance lately.
And that’s when I was recommended the Jet Peel 3V treatment at Therapie. In a nutshelll, it’s an all-natural, virtually painless skin treatment procedure that dramatically improves the appearance and texture of your skin.
The main selling point for me is it’s a non-chemical skincare technique – important as with Vitiligo I can’t have active ingredients on my skin.
It’s a funny little procedure where you lie down in the heavenly haven that is Therapie (I attended the Molesworth Street clinic) and a little hose-type machine blows out cold water and and oxygen onto your face and neck, thoroughly exfoliating the skin.
I was told the treatment would improve the texture, tone, hydration and circulation, and that wasn’t an exaggeration. I opted for three treatments and even after the first I saw a marked difference.
I felt the deep cleanse and exfoliation almost banished stress and toxins as I lay there, and I loved how my therapist explained the procedure every step of the way.
They were very aware of my Vitiligo and thus my treatment was tailor-made for me; and Therapie will add vitamins and other ingredients to any individual treatment to treat specific skin issues as per the client.
Little micro droplets of saline solution spray onto your skin at a speed of 200m/second, meaning it peels off dead skin cells. It also creates a level of humidity which is ideal for toning, and deeply moisturising the skin.
It’s so therapeutic it almost sends you to sleep and I guarantee it’s a treatment you’ll just want more and more of.
Yes it’s pricey, at €150 for one treatment – but you pay for quality and my results were fantastic after my three treatments.
If you can afford it, invest in the six-treatment package for €600. Your skin will thank you and as we all know, we don’t get a second chance when it comes to our precious skin.
The Therapie therapists will advise how far apart to book your treatments and what’s best for you and your skin, and then all you do is turn up and let them work their magic.
For more info, visit the Therapie website and have a look for yourself. Going forward, I’ll be booking bi-monthly Jet Peels and saving hard to make sure I don’t miss them.
