Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude.
Today I have something a little different than my usual product review. I was invited to the W Hotel here in downtown Montreal for the JetPeel Experience last week (November 2nd) – thank you JetPeel and Blend PR [info in italics and infographics / photos from JetPeel Press Release]
Based on subsonic jet stream application, JetPeel enables fast transdermal delivery with no needles, no pain, and no downtime. The world’s first and only beauty technology of its kind, JetPeel is clinically proven to provide instant, same day, visible results in a non-invasive comfortable and relaxing treatment.
JetPeel turns targeted solutions into a fine mist that is able to penetrate the skin on a deeper level helping to provide you with specific treatments tailored just for you—travelling at a subsonic speed of over 200 m/s. Applied with an advanced JetPeel wand, the jet stream exfoliates the epidermal layer and gently stretches the skin surface, opening microchannels that allow for noninvasive delivery of nutritive microdroplets deep into the skin. The treatment takes about 45 minutes.
I was very intrigued by this facial technology, especially as it has no downtime, and is painless!
When I first arrived, the JetPeel Technician, Erin took a good look at my skin, and asked me a few questions to help target the treatment type based on my skincare concerns – which I’ll get into after walking you through the process.
The JetPeel is feels super cold – I jokingly compared it to February in Montreal when it occasionally goes down to -40C. It doesn’t hurt at all. The first step is the lymphatic drainage – it feels like a massage, and it reduces toxins and puffiness and increases circulation in the skin – this is done from your hairline down your neck to your clavicles.
The next step is the exfoliation / hydradermabrasion stage, where the chemical exfoliant is applied, and then sits for approximately 6 or 7 minutes before being neutralized. There are several different exfoliation ingredients to choose from, a Glycolic Acid 10% solution was used for me. The JetPeel machine basically blasts off dead skin cells and mades the skin ready for the next stage – the hydroporation and booster infusion stage.
The hydroporation and booster infusion stage is, in my opinion, “where the magic happens” – this is where you can target specific concerns and the treatments are delivered deep into the layers of the skin. We decided to do a combination treatment based on my skin concerns – redness / mild rosacea on my cheeks, mild hyper-pigmentation (from a sunburn from several years ago), and fine lines / wrinkles on my forehead, outer eye, and smile lines. Let’s take a look at each of the treatments / solutions that were used on me:
COUPEROSE (Rosacea Treatment): Specially formulated for the treatment of rosacea and very sensitive skin, Couperose & Sensitive Skin Serum is rich in anti-inflammatory and sun defence ingredients that soothe and protect, preventing irritation and redness. The formula is infused with purifying antioxidant aloe barbadensis extract, Niacinamide for the reduction of fine lines and pigmentation, antibacterial Azelaic acid that evens and tones the skin, and calming, regenerating Troxerutin. It’s the perfect gentle yet powerful solution for the most sensitive and delicate skins.
BRIGHTENING: Jet Solution Brightening Complex contains powerful ingredients that act as pigment inhibitors, instantly creating a brighter, more uniform tone. Enriched with Stay-C Vitamin, an oxidation-resistant variant of vitamin C, and the exclusive Bio-Light compound, rich in natural brightening and redness-reducing ingredients, the formula is gentle and powerful for effective use on the face, chin, neck, decollete, and hands.
ATX-NAT (Botox alternative): Discover a natural, safe and painless anti-ageing treatment that offers a superior alternative to Botulinum Toxin A. ATX-NAT Jet Solution takes a different approach, relaxing the muscles for a firmer appearance and improvement of fine lines and wrinkles. The clinically-proven formula is based on Argireline, a peptide composed of 6 amino acids, and Betaine, which balances the skin’s water retention activity for a hydrated, nourished result. Ideal for effectively and safely treating the wrinkle-prone areas around the eyes and lips, ATX-NAT is the key to exceptionally brighter, softer, and smoother skin.
Immediately after the JetPeel Treatment my skin was slightly pink, but not in a sensitive skin reaction way, just in that freshly cleansed way. My skin looked so smooth, plumped and glowing! Any pinkness disappeared before I made it back to my place from downtown. Its been a week post-treatment, and I look well-rested, and I can see a reduction in the pinkness in my cheeks, my serums and moisturizers feel like they sink in faster.
All in all, an AMAZING experience!
Thanks for reading
Disclosure: In case you missed it at the beginning, I had the JetPeel Treatment for free, however my opinion is based on my personal experience (as always). Thank you JetPeel Canada and BlendPR.
