Tried And Tested: The Jet Peel Facial


by Rosie McMeel
20th Apr 2018

Supercharge your skincare with a hydrating treatment that will leave your pores refreshed and radiant, says ROSALEEN McMEEL.

We all know the eight glasses a day rule, but when was the last time you harnessed the power of a water-based treatment to boost your skin? When none of the lotions or creams on your bathroom shelf seem to be cutting it anymore, it’s time to dial up the intensity of your hydration routine. Look for a facial that focuses on moisturisation. This usually includes humectant-rich products and masks designed to soften and plump skin. Or go even further and try water peeling (water-based formulas without harsh exfoliators).

Aqua peels have increased in popularity, particularly for revitalising ageing skin. While many different types of cosmetic peels have been available for years, their basic premise is to remove the top layer(s) of dead or damaged skin.

Non-invasive, the Jet Peel is an all-natural, virtually painless skin treatment procedure designed to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. It can help in treating clogged pores, acne and blackheads, scars, skin discolouration and multiple signs of ageing. Put another way: there’s a hydrating facial, and then there’s a super-charged Jet Peel Facial. The device essentially sucks all the dirt and dead skin cells out of your face like a vacuum.

It works like a professional pore excavation, designed to clear out clogged sebum and eliminate blackheads. Then the same tool helps infuse your skin with a vitamin-packed serum. It’s surprisingly refreshing, so skin looks soft and radiant without any redness or inflammation.

Originally developed by the Russian Aerospace Engineering programme, the Jet Peel Facial works simultaneously on five different levels at once: cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating, oxygenating and micro-circulating the treated area. In short, an oxygenating set of salty water blasts away dead skin cells, allowing oxygen to penetrate, a plumping mask nourishes, then a relaxing massage produces the effect of a good night’s sleep.

One treatment may be enough for anyone just wanting to revitalise a dull complexion, while those experiencing acne breakouts or other concerns should ask about a series of treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart to attain their goal.

Not only for the face, this treatment can also improve the appearance of the hands, chest, and other areas of the body. The real selling point: there’s no downtime after the treatment. So you’re ready to face the world right away. Let’s raise a glass to that.

Jet Peel Facial at Nuala Woulfe’s Serenity Day Spa, saline only: 60 minutes, €100; saline and vitamin infusion: 75 minutes, €135.
