Summers are harsh on the skin- especially the dry and intense Dubai heat so this is the perfect time to prep your skin for the onslaught of summer. I do it with a deep exfoliation technique, microderambraision, a procedure that buffs away the surface layer of skin and dead cells.
I’ve had the treatment done a couple of times before, but two weeks ago was my first microdermabrasion session at Eternal Clinic, Jumeirah Beach Road. The effects of microdermabrasion are never instantaneous but are fully realized within a period of two weeks or more- it takes that much time for skin to regenerate and even out the tone. So is it worth the wait?
Well for starters, I loved the hospitality at Eternal Clinic- the staff was very warm and friendly and always eager to answer any questions. I was impressed by the sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipment housed in the treatment rooms. I opted for the 30 minute mini microdermabrasion treatment as I was pressed for time but even the mini session was very effective.
After the session, I was handed a set of specific instructions for post-treatment skincare which included extra hydration with the use of a good moisturizer, a strong sunblock and no deep cleansing or exfoliation for a few days. Gradually, I’ve started to see the effects- soft texture, even toned skin and a visibly improved complexion! I’d say its completely worth the wait, and that too, without undertaking the risk of treatments such as chemical peels.
But since microdermabrasion is such an advanced procedure, it should be done at a trustworthy and reputed salon or clinic- I’d highly recommend Eternal Clinic for its trained staff, great quality of products for facials (post treatment) and a very professional beauty practice.
