The Promise
A diamond-tipped device will exfoliate while simultaneously infusing a customised serum into the skin to lift, plump, reduce the appearance of fine lines and deal with problem areas.

Step by Step
Remède Spa prides itself on being up-to-the-minute with cutting-edge technology, and if anything is proof of that (in a very literal sense) it’s The Diamond Youth Facial.

The facial is delivered using the ‘Silkpeel’ machine, the first of its kind at a beauty spa in the region. The machine has a pen-like vacuum attachment that the therapist moves across the face to perform microdermabrasion, which removes the outer layers of the skin.

Its diamond point is a bit scratchy but not too uncomfortable. The machine also delivers a serum containing Vitamin C and antioxidants, specifically chosen to brighten the complexion.

It’s very quick – we’re surprised to find we’re done in just a little over 20 minutes.

The Result
Impressive. Microdermabrasion is popular world-wide as an effective way to improve skin condition, and this treatment steps it up a level. Our skin is super smooth, beautifully soft, and noticeably brighter.

Pros
It’s effective for a range of skin types and conditions, including minimising pigmentation, reducing acne, reducing the appearance of sun damage and problem skin after pregnancy.

Cons
The punch to your purse. Ouch.
