I was lucky enough to try Dermalogica’s latest inovation the IonActive Power Treatment recently, a 45-minute professional skin treatment designed to address skin conditions such as acne, dehydration, sensitivity, and skin ageing.
The treatment started with Dermalogica’s face mapping process, which highlights the concerns in different areas of your face, mine was some hormonal breakouts on my chin and dryness on my forehead and cheeks. After this a customised treatment was designed using the IonActive products, we decided that my skin needed a huge zap of moisture and went with the Hyaluronic Acid IonActive product – the most hydrating of the line.
After this is applied light therapy is used to enhance the effect of the products onto the skin. There are two light settings; Red for skin renewal and Blue for Active Acne. I was obsessed with the light technology, it made you feel like the product was working double time. If you are time poor and want instant results from a facial this is the technology for you! It would also be perfect if you wanted to perk up your skin before a big event.
After the treatment was finished I instantly noticed a difference in my skin, it was brighter and was super hydrated. Finally my skin therapist decided on a few new dermalogica products for me to tailor into my skin care routine.
