After returning from my Krabi trip, I realized my skin is in need of a rescue. My skin was super dehydrated due the constant exposure of sun during my trip. I headed to Murad for my facial as a couple of friends recommended me to it. If you’re unaware, Murad is founded by Dr. Howard Murad, who’s a dermatologist. Apart from that, Murad has even won several awards from notable beauty magazine such as Female for their facial treatment. This give me an extra boost of confidence to try it.
Upon arriving at the salon, I was tended by a friendly beautician. She sat down to further analyze my skin. Here’s me doing my skin analysis.
The machine used at Murad revealed the 6 category of concerns on my skin such as wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, sensitive skin, dehydration and sagging skin. After discussion, my beautician recommended me to try their latest Hydration Quenching Facial with Ultrasound Therapy.
Why this therapy? Hydration Quenching Facial with Ultrasound Therapy is the latest treatment in Murad. It targets skin concerns such as:
- Loss of elasticity and moisture
- Tight, itchy and dehydrated skin
- Fine lines and dark circles around eye area
By using ultrasound, the micro pulse vibrates deep within the cells to stimulate the skin’s natural repair mechanism. It also maximizes the optimum result of plumping, hydrating and nourishing to the skin without using chemicals or harsh abrasives. Thus, moisture is lock in the skin longer!
After cleansing and steaming my face, my beautician did a quick extraction of black heads and white heads. As I was doing the Hydration Quenching Facial with Ultrasound Therapy, they do not recommend heavy extraction to clear impurities as they will be using the machine for ultrasound later.
Finishing my extraction, my beautician prepared me for the treatment. They pushed the ultrasound machine in and explained the steps to me. Firstly, they will be applying the hydrating serum gel and will use the ultrasound machine to help the gel penetrate into my skin. There’s absolutely no pain, as the ultrasound machine gently works the serum gel to penetrate deeply into my skin.
I estimate perhaps a 5 – 10 minutes has passed, the beautician handed me a mirror to look. One side of my skin seems more firmed and moisturized. It took about another 10 minutes to complete the other side of my face. Following suit, I had a facial massage on my face and shoulder. Lastly, they applied a cool hydration mask on my face. The treatment took less than 1 hour 30 minutes. By now I’m sure you’re wondering about the results…
As this is my first treatment, the results seen are minimal. However, I did notice that my skin is not as dry as before. Skin texture is much brighter and smoother too. I would definitely recommend this to my family and friends who are in need of a moisture boost!
These are some of the products used on my skin:
