The Glow Peel with Dr Krystyna

So we have all just about made it through the year of January & February and we now find ourselves in the awkward lull of March. Without sounding like a pessimist - this is also a month I find SUCH a drag...not yet spring, still freezing, still trying to stick to that 'new year new me' stuff (emphasis on trying). I don't know about you but I always find the mood swings in the weather at this time of year have such an impact on my skin and complexion - thats why when Dr. Krystyna invited me to try her new Glow Peel I jumped at the opportunity!

'The Glow Peel' is a light non-invasive treatment which removes the upper layers of dead and damaged skin. This, in turn will leave your complexion feeling rejuvenated and will assist to reduce the appearance of fine lines, dull skin, pores and blackheads. The action of the chemical solution also stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, essential components of healthy, youthful skin. - are you sold yet?.

Dr. K herself is an absolute dream - exuberant with a very positive energy and she instantly makes you feel like you have known each other for years, we nattered and laughed the whole way through the treatment. The procedure is pain free and only took around 20 minutes - you do feel a slight tingle when the products are doing their thing, but its minimal and doesn't last long at all. There is also minimum downtime so no need to hibernate for the day (or more) and you can also just pop in and have one on your lunch break. I did however make sure I had a clear diary for that evening so I could let my skin absorb all of the serums and creams.

I was absolutely delighted with the results, initially I was a little worried about skin irritation or a break out but fortunately I didn't experience either. For me the most noticeable results were; significantly reduced appearance of pores and a healthy a looking glow. I also found my makeup sat a lot nicer on my skin as the surface was a lot smoother. In my opinion for £90 this treatment is a complete bargin and really helps you feel fresher and less run down!

Dr. Krystyna has been kind enough to answer a few questions for me but if you want to know anything more visit her website!

Q: How long do the results of this treatment last?

A: Your skin has a cellular turnover therefore results are not permanent. We recommend these peels to clients every 2-3 weeks to maintain hydrated glowing skin and remove the clogged pores from day to day lifestyle.

Q: Do you offer a package deal with this treatment?

A: Yes! At blush and blow we offer FREE peels when you have 3 areas of botox or buy 5 get 6th free.

Q: What are your tips for maintaining a clearer complexion?

A: Always remove makeup before bed! REGARDLESS how tired or how late it is! Change pillow case every 3/4 days as these can get oily and cause blocked pores. Never wear make up to gym/sauna and stick to a simple but effective cleansing routine. Consistency is key!

Q: What other cosmetic treatments do you offer?

A: We offer a wide range of facial enhancement treatments. These include botox to both the upper (and more advanced) lower face to alleviate/ prevent fine lines and wrinkles or to restructure/ define jaw and neck jowls. Dermal filler for lip augmentation, nose to mouth line softening, marionette (smokers lines) softening. Cheek augmentation and contouring. Chin Filler for definition or facial restructure.
