The month of December was craaaaayyyzzzyyy with work! I did not get time at all to follow up on my facials for more than 2 months. And this had started to show on every level of the skin. So, when I got an invite from Simply Skin Dubai to try their 'Signature Treatment', I just had to fit it into my schedule. And I did. Did I love it? Read till the end of the post to find out 😉
First let me tell you a little about this personalized facial treatment done on me by Kinga. She is fantastic! Like, seriously fantastic. I have had facials from a lot of therapists and loved them all for different reasons. But, Kinga is an aesthetician who actually studies your skin before recommending the treatment for you. The skin treatments here are not limited to a menu where you have to choose from. If you are willing to voice your skin concerns, she will definitely give you the perfect antidote.
In her words; the treatment done for my skin:
We started with Microdermabrasion (noninvasive skin resurfacing procedure which provides much deeper exfoliation than traditional) combined with deep pore cleansing, AHA acids (to minimize the appearance of fine lines, fade hyper-pigmentation, smooth out rough skin texture and aid in clearing acne) & microcurrent hydradermie double ionization to help active ingredients penetrate into skin deeper and faster. After completing this part of the treatment we performed massage with electrostimulation machine to improve your skin tone and give you mini lifting. The treatment was completed with our best-selling Pure Gold Mask with Native Fish Collagen in order to give ur skin long lasting hydration, improves skin firmness and elasticity.
And my skin; needless to say, literally felt uplifted. Smooth, bump free, blackheads free, whiteheads free, closed pores. I did not apply any makeup the entire day because I loved the glow on my face!! 😀
Here is a little about SS medical spa (Yes! its a medical spa) in the words of Kinga:
- Tell us about your journey as an aesthetician.
My journey as an aesthetician started in 1999 back in home country Poland when I finished my 2years college diploma. I worked there for 4 years gaining the experience performing my work as a beauty technician.
I came to Dubai in 2003 as a young girl with one suitcase to visit my friend for holidays and …hear I am. Now I am 36 years old full time mother and licensed beauty and laser technician. I love this industry and truly enjoy helping my clients meet their skincare goals. I’m very proud to see where my cosmetic journey has taken me through the years.

- How early can one start anti-aging treatments?
I believe it’s very personal and depends on individual requirements, each case is diffetent. Due to hormonal changes, life style, incorrect diet weather conditions etc. ageing proces will look different. I always suggest “to prevent” rather than fixing what's already damaged. But if I have to put a number then it would be one close to 25.

- How often do you recommend a facial and why?
Depends on several factors — your skin type, skin condition, skin care goals, your budget, age, even where you live. On average, getting a professional facial once a month is ideal for someone who wants to take good care of their skin. That's because the skin is a living organ, and it takes about 30 days for the cells to move up from the dermis to the surface, or epidermis, where they flatten out, die and slough off. A professional facial stimulates that exfoliation process, keeping the skin more toned and youthful-looking
