Beauty Adventures: Aqua Radiance at Kaya Skin Clinic
It’s been quite a while since we last tried the latest beauty treatments in the market. Not that we’re neglecting our body and skin, it’s just that we haven’t really seen anything special.
But we changed our minds when we were presented with the opportunity to try the Aqua Radiance treatment at kaya skin clinic, a leading international skincare clinic chain in the Middle East.
What actually interests us? Well, it was said that Aqua Radiance is one of the ultimate solutions to maintaining healthy and radiant skin most especially during hot summer months.
This is a revolutionary skin care service, especially in the region, considering that 80 per cent of skin damage is caused by the sun, with air conditioning constantly sucking away moisture from the skin. This, coupled with an unhealthy diet, dehydrates the skin making it devoid of vital nutrients.
Aqua Radiance, in a nutshell, offers all the four essential skin care solutions – exfoliation, hydration, nourishment and lymphatic drainage. A key point worth noting is that none of the enhancement services available elsewhere provide nourishment and this is very essential to keep the skin glowing.
Hearing all of these, plus recognizing that the smoldering season has officially checked into Dubai, we just had to heed to the call and check out if Aqua Radiance would suit us. So, off we went to The Walk at the Dubai Marina here a kaya skin clinic is conveniently located.
As we walked through the clean and white clinic, we were greeted with friendly smiles of kaya’s professional staff. This warm welcome allowed us to feel good all throughout – during the brief consultation, during and after the whole process.
Once atop the treatment table, our lovely therapist explained Aqua Radiance step-by-step. She said that there were three main steps for the treatment: Exfoliation, Hydration and Nourishment. She also informed us of the Jet Peel device that would be used for the treatment. Trusting that this technology would give us radiant skin, we did not exactly mind the details.
After the preliminaries of briefing and cleaning our faces, she began with Exfoliation wherein she used the jet sprays to penetrate the deepest layer of skin, removing layers of dead cells and restoring lost luster. It would be important to note that the device could be quite surprising as it tickled us while going through this step. (The tickling sensation from the combination of air and water diminished as we went through the process.)
The cool and soothing jet streams were used for the second step which is Hydration. In this step, the device infused therapeutic elements deep into the skin to recharge and revitalise the cells, allowing the skin to produce new collagen – a process necessary for effective skin rejuvenation.
Then, she took out the black heads and white heads, and also took a close look at our skin type so as to choose the relevant vitamin to use in the last step which is Nourishment. Apparently, the vitamins were infused to the skin using the jet streams, leaving it nothing short of flawless.
Every time, the trickiest part would be the first look in the mirror right after the treatment. Yes, we understand that we would like to see a huge transformation. But, more often than not, this is simply not the case.
Aqua Radiance may not have given us a fabulous ready-for-photo shoot image but it did make us feel good about our skin. We felt that the face was thoroughly cleaned and nourished, paving the way for a healthy look. Moreover, note that this treatment is more of a maintenance solution rather than a quick fix. And, to be able to maximize its effectiveness, the treatment is recommended to be done every fifteen days especially during hot months.
So, would we recommend this facial treatment? The answer is definite yes. Our skin needs cleaning and hydration, and we believe that this new jet technology is a must-try beauty breakthrough.
