While life in the desert can be exiting, pampered and relaxed, the climate is unforgiving- especially to the skin. Dubai’s summer has set in and the heat is already having an effect on my skin. I recently did a beach day out and swore not to return until November this year!
So with my terrible sunburn and uneven tan, I picked Kaya Skin Clinic for a microdermabrasion for my facial skin. I’ve had one done earlier from Kaya’s Mumbai (Bandra) branch and loved the result of this exfoliation procedure. This time, I tried the Dubai Marina counterpart for the same service.
I found the staff at Kaya Clinic to be very helpful and efficient – right from helping in directions to facilitating the entire process seamlessly. I was first taken for a consultation with an in-house dermatologist, who helped in identifying my prime skin concerns and guiding me towards what’s best suited for my type. I thought this consultation was very crucial for helping me understand my own skin and arriving at the right conclusion.
Next, I underwent a skin analysis where the skinscope machine (a device that emits ultraviolet (UV) light) showed me the exact area of concern and quantified the problems in percentage, such as sunburn, sensitivity, pigmentation and sebum production. This analysis further helped the dermatologist in addressing the problem and finding the precise solution.
We came to the conclusion that microdermabrasion is the perfect treatment for my skin which had tan lines and blemishes. This 20 minute treatment was conducted by an expert who was precise, quick and effective. Since the procedure involves tiny crystals to be sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer, like an intense exfoliation, it requires a skilled professional. At Kaya, as was with my previous experience, I found the service to be very good and the practitioner to be very knowledgeable.
I’m not sure about others, but for me, the full effects of a microdermabrasion are seen about 2-3 days after the procedure. I must say, I am very happy with the results. The light blemishes are gone and my skin feels supple and soft after the treatment at Kaya Skin Clinic.
Overall, I’d highly recommend the skin services at Kaya Skin Clinic Arabia, especially for their skilled staff and sheer variety and scope of skin treatments.
