One of the best facials in Dubai that works on your skin's deepest layers

Did you know that 80% of our skin's deeper layers are damaged due to external factors?
Only 20% of the skin's deeper layers are harmed by old age - meaning, all of that sunbathing time, the dust in the air, and even smoking are wreaking havoc on your skin. Not just on the surface, but deep into your dermis and hypodermis layers.
So if like me, you've taken it upon yourself to ensure you give yourself TLC for your #1 resolution for 2019, you're in the right place.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try the Triple Oxygen Facial at Avant Garde Beauty Centre in Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT). It's the only beauty salon in Dubai that offers an oxygen facial combined with the already much-loved Dermalogica products.
Being British, I have very fair, sensitive skin that tends to fall prey to redness, blemishes, and flushes. With my skin in need of a pick-me-up ahead of my summer travels, the Triple Oxygen Facial was the perfect way to refresh, rejuvenate and replenish my face, and here's why.
How an Oxygen Facial works
- An oxygen facial is the only facial that works on the deeper layers
- The oxygen neutralises any negative effects of environmental damage at a cellular level
- It revives, repairs and regenerates every cell, hence the aging process is delayed
- It soothes and repairs the upper layer of sensitive skin, which thins down due to the environment or chemicals
- Your skin is nourished with a serum, moisturiser, vitamins and anti-oxidants
- Oxygen boosts new cell growth and enhances elastin and collagen production, giving an instant youthful glow
- It's a facial that's great for all skin types!
The benefits of an Oxygen Facial
The Triple Oxygen Facial combines Dermalogica facial products with a three-step oxygen booster, that leaves you with younger, brighter skin and a dewy glow. It's perfect for all skin types and is favoured by Hollywood celebrities like Madonna because of its amazing results.
At Avant Garde, the facial is delivered by highly trained facial therapists, as it works on the deeper layers of your skin to revive, repair and regenerate your skin's elastin and collagen.
During your facial, your skin receives a boot of hyperbaric oxygen, before being infused with an anti-aging serum, moisturiser, vitamins, and antioxidants. There are three steps in which oxygen is applied; the first, via oxygen therapy whereby you inhale the oxygen supply during a face massage, then the other two steps help to atomise the moisturisers and serums applied to your skin in various concentrations.
All of this combined help to reduce redness, promote cell growth and collagen growth, rehydrates and detoxifies your skin and accelerates your skin's natural healing process.
As mentioned, my skin had small blemishes and slight redness before I arrived for my review - and after, the redness had subsided completely.
The process did not hurt at all and I was entirely comfortable throughout. The oxygen facial at Avant Garde Beauty Centre has no side effects, and zero downtime - and you can even re-apply your make-up after 24 hours post-facial. It's advised you don't apply your face sooner, so as not to make the skin look oily afterwards.
I would highly recommend undergoing the Oxygen Facial at Avant Garde Beauty Centre if you have a special event coming up, like a party or wedding, or like in my case, travelling soon.
