A facial isn't normally something you'd consider getting on the day of a big do but I'd heard about the JetPeel Facial at Therapie Clinics nationwide being just the man for that job -- promising 'wow-factor, fresher, more radiant and healthier-looking skin' and wanted to try it out. The good news is that it does work, I've decent enough skin but it was practically glowing when I left the Molesworth Street premises.
It works by spraying a high-pressure saline solution on the face, neck and decolletage to rid the skin of toxins. This exfoliates and cleanses the skin, eradicating dead cells.
The jet stream dramatically moisturises and hydrates the skin and infuses oxygen deep into the dermis, which recharges and revitalises the cells, helping your skin produce new collagen, which is necessary for a truly rejuvenated look. A personalised blend of pure concentrated vitamins is then applied for an added boost.
The bad news is it's €120 for one, or three for two in January-- but it could make a great gift for someone special if you have the cash.
