Kaya Skin Clinic Aqua Radiance Facial Treatment Review
People say your imagination takes you places. Liars! Mine often lands me up in uncomfortable situations. Like when I was told about this Kaya Aqua Radiance treatment where they give you a facial with a water jet, I immediately imagined a 5 inch hose pipe being sprayed on my face and started calcuting the water pressure and almost blurted out “umm..no thanks. my sensitive skin won’t be able to take it” but sanity prevailed and I behaved like a smart and mature girl and instead asked “so tell me more on the jets..like maybe how big they are?”
Kaya Claims: Kaya Aqua Radiance is a revolutionary service which, for the first time, painlessly infuses vitamins as deep as 4.5 mm into your skin. Drawing on the healing properties of oxygen and water to replenish skin cells, this service uses cool and soothing supersonic jet sprays to gently slough off layers of dead cells, instantly enabling your pores to breathe while restoring lost lustre. This deep cleansing process also unclogs blackheads, leaving your skin spotless and fresh.
Jet M machine, a hand piece with a specialized nozzle, directs a powerful jet of saline water onto the skin and its matching high energy sprays, cleanse and gently exfoliate the skin. Soon after exfoliation, nutrients such as Vitamin A+E, B5, C and Hyaluronic acid are infused at high pressure, resulting in better penetration. Comedone extraction is carried out using a special vacuum operated device. Finally, application of Daily Use sunscreen.
That’s what makes the Aqua Radiance treatment so much more effective at exfoliating, hydrating and rejuvenating than other superficial care.
I went for the Aqua Radiance Facial Treatment at the Kaya Skin Clinic in Kamla Nagar, North Delhi which is very close to my place and still managed to reach an hour late..because I had a viva that morning. And we all know how vivas can mess up your brain so I was still under the hangover. Well ofcourse I didn’t say that! Traffic you know! *wink*
I was given an apple drink which I sort of like and ushered to the room with all the equipment and the lady who was in charge of me. The whole session took around 1 hour. The process included cleansing, toning , exfoliating, massaging and finally they apply a gel face pack. First she did some cleansing with the jet spray with some saline water and oxygen. Later on during the toning and exfoliation stage the water is mixed with different vitamins and minerals. The hand jet spray turned out to be really tiny (and not a hose pipe!) so she was moving along my entire face in circular motions. Except for the blackhead removal part which is always scary, it was not painful.
I won’t go ahead and say it was “relaxing” because its not spa like. You are aware of the water being sprayed on your face and neck. But my hair and ears were covered so the water didn’t make me uncomfortable. And every 5mins she was asking me if the pressure is okay which is good.
This is the beast..the jet spray machine
When I saw my face in the mirror I wanted to scream honestly..it was all red..totally RED! I know my skin is very sensitive to facials and turns red after threading and waxing but I didn’t expect it. Turns out the skin gets red after this jet facial for everyone. The redness stayed for an hour or so and then it cleared. I didn’t see any dramatic change until the second day to be honest. It was only the next day I noticed how my skin looked so clear. All the blackheads and whiteheads reduced to a good extent and my face felt smooth and soft. It also looked quite radiant.
I was not allowed to use makeup or soap till the next day. Neither did I need to. And good that I had my parlour visit a day before the facial because you are not supposed to get any parlour activities done for a week. And no sun exposure for 3-4 days but since I was meeting sailor the next day (why do you think I went for the facial!) I slathered on a lot of sunscreen and I was good.
I was really looking forward to have a consultancy session with the Kaya dermatological but there was none. I have been to the Kaya Clinic and I’ve not seen a derma there. Some of my friends who visit their clinics in other cities and areas have had some personalized and detailed recommendations from the derma so I hope they get one in this too..otherwise whats a clinic without a doctor.
You should go for Kaya Aqua Radiance Treatment if you want deep cleansing. It is also good for girls with dry skin since the continuous water and oxygen spray hydrates your skin. Schedule it 2-3 days before an important date because the glow takes time to show up. And get the threading done before the facial. Overall its effective and within budget.
The Kaya Aqua Radiance Facial Treatment is priced at Rs.990.
