The fire and ice facial is the secret weapon in the beauty arsenal of many Hollywood big names like Halle Berry, Selena Gomez, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Gwyneth Paltrow to achieve an immediate radiant and younger-looking skin. In fact, it is reckoned as the ‘hottest’ and ‘coolest’ skin treatment out there and was even voted as the Celebrity Facial Of The Year by InStyle Magazine. But what exactly is this sought-after facial that everyone’s talking about?
Fire And Ice Facial Is…
A facial treatment that combines both the elements of heat (fire) and cold (ice) to give the face a brighter, smoother and tighter appearance. The clinical facial is designed to rapidly and safely remove dead cells and resurface the skin. It can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and encourages new cells growth. It can also help clear acne and improve acne scarring, overtime.
The best part of this facial tho is that the whole process only takes about 3-40 minutes and the results are longer-lasting compared to other chemical peels. Plus, there is no downtime to this treatment so you can continue your day as usual upon completion. It is the fastest and most effective way to get ready for big events like weddings, reunions or engagements.
The Treatment Begins With…
Just like any facial, fire and ice facial start off with cleansing the face. After that, the specialist will start to apply the creams. The “fire” part comes in the form of a masque containing glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid and retinol. It stays on the face 5 minutes or less. This resurfacing masque exfoliates the skin, removing the surface layer of the epidermis to reveal the softer layer underneath.
This part of the treatment could help with congested skin. The treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles, giving the client a smoother and more youthful look. This part of the treatment also increases blood flow and circulation. The imposed trauma to the skin aims to stimulate cellular renewal. In response, the skin then produces collagen in the following days. The face is then neutralised.
The “ice” part is a rejuvenating masque with hyaluronic acid, soothing aloe vera and natural antioxidant ingredients such as grape seed extract, green tea extract and rosemary extract. It is to cool down and calm down the skin to reduce any inflammation or swelling in the skin. After the trauma-inducing “fire” part of the treatment, the “ice” part supplies the face with healing, hydrating, repairing and regenerating agents.
The face is then cleaned again to remove any residual treatment. A moisturizing serum applied to the face to lock in more nutrients for the skin. A sunscreen then applied to the face to protect the skin from the sun. The centrepiece of this remarkable treatment system is a combination of two therapeutic masques followed by application of a serum and a crèmes to soothe and moisturize the skin.
The Side Effects Are…
As the name implies, the treatment consists of applying heat and cooling processes. It is an intensive chemical treatment involving a mild peel then followed immediately by supplying the skin with nutrients, so it may have some side effects. We do advise you to use a mild non-abrasive cleanser or other mild product for five days following the procedure.
It will add some additional benefits if you use a good sunscreen of SPF 20 or higher after getting this facial. As your skin has been newly resurfaced, it is best to avoid prolonged sun exposure for several days after getting this facial. The Fire and Ice Facial is great for all skin types. This facial cannot be performed if you are currently using any type of retinols, Retin -A or Roaccutane.
Caution Should Be Taken…
The treatment involves a mild chemical peel and as such caution should be taken. While on average the downtime is a matter of hours, some may experience it longer, with redness persisting over the next day or two. As such, the treatment is best not to be taken immediately before a special event, but at least one or two days earlier. Best to consult a doctor if you experience any irritations.
