It’s been awhile since I’ve experienced a treatment with Dermalogica. I was excited to try out the new AR 35 treatment and it was SO GOOD that I need to tell you about it. Keep reading!
AR35 stands for Active Resurface 35 and Dermalogica states that ‘this is not a cookie cutter treatment.’ And I would have to agree…..AR35 is an advanced 45 minute resurfacing treatment that utilizes a synergy of the most active ingredients available in today’s skin care arena.
A 45 minute advanced skin exfoliation treatment with a focus on professional use only Exfoliant Accelerator 35.
• Includes customizable options
• Key benefits of Active Resurface 35:
-Visible results after one treatment
-Minimal redness/side effects post treatment
-Targets a range of skincare concerns
-45min ideal for time sensitive clients
key ingredients include:
There’s a reason that this treatment is professional use only and you will feel that as you go through the treatment. There is a definitely tingling and some heat (oh yeah it’s working!). The skin therapist will determine the level of activity after a consultation and having a look at your skin. There are 3 treatment levels:
• Power Active
• Intensive Active
• Ultimate Active
After my treatment, my skin therapist (Amanda) applied an oatmeal mask to help soothe my skin. Post treatment, no intense cardio, steam rooms or saunas and you MUST use an SPF! Thankfully, I use the SPF daily and don’t plan on using steam/sauna anytime soon.
Amanda also had a post treatment discussion with me and sent me home with some products that I promised I would use faithfully. Let’s just say I have a new ‘plan’ in terms of exfoliation and care of my skin…….
My skin looks and feels divine. It feels like my skin is in my 20’s again, it’s bright, soft, smooth and taut…..I haven’t experienced that in the longest time. I didn’t leave the treatment oily or greasy (which was a huge plus because I had some other appointments that day) and my face felt incredibly clean. I’m looking forward to having this done again, perhaps in the later part of January. It was totally worth it…..and if you have 45 minutes and want your ‘best’ skin, find a spa/salon near you that offers this treatment!
