The Award: Best Instant-Results Facial
The Winner: Estetica – OxyGeneo 3-in-1 Therapy
This three-in-one treatment combines gentle exfoliation, skin oxygenation, and rejuvenation with an infusion of revitalising nutrients, to get skin smooth, supple and glowing. The facial promises to boost skin’s natural oxygenation to enhance the benefits of the products that follow.
Depending on your skin concerns, you can opt for one of two treatment options: NeoRevive, for skin that needs a moisture and skin-evening boost, or NeoBright, to treat dullness and hyperpigmentation.
How it works: exfoliating and oxygenation happen at the same time. The single-use Capsugen exfoliating capsule, Estetica’s proprietary formula comprising vitamin C, removes dead skin cells and impurities, and unclogs pores, as well as reacts with the NeoRevive/NeoBright gel to trigger the body’s natural oxygenation process.
This process primes the skin to absorb all the nutrient-rich active ingredients that follow from the rest of the facial. Skin is left refined, nourished and revitalised.
Best bit? It takes just 45 minutes.
What Happened After We Tried It
“I suffer from dull, uneven skin tone, along with skin sagging and an oily T-zone.
My face was cleansed to prep it for the exfoliating-oxygenation process, using Estetica’s geneO+ machine. The therapist warned me that my skin might feel tingly or uncomfortable during this step. I was slightly concerned as I had experienced a mild reaction from using vitamin C creams before, but was reassured that the sensation would not last beyond the treatment time, as the rest of the facial would quickly replenish my skin with nutrients.
Sure enough, I did feel a bit of discomfort during the first step, especially on my forehead. But the sensation was gone by the end of the treatment, and I was left with just a slightly red patch on my forehead, which disappeared by the end of the day.
The results were worth the slight discomfort as my skin looked brighter and more evenly toned. And the effects actually lasted for a few days. For such a short treatment, the improvements were impressive and noticeable.”
