However, I think I have just been having the wrong type of facials done. After visiting TUSC (Today’s Ultimate Skincare) in Sandton City, I realised that an expertly done facial can make a huge difference to your skin.
TUSC is not your usual beauty salon. They offer medical aesthetic services, like botox, permanent makeup, IPL, wrinkle reduction and alot more. They’re not about lighting candles and playing soft music- they’re about results. Basically they can fix most things that are wrong with your body aesthetic-wise. I have really bad stretch marks on my back, and I’ve seen how their treatments make the stretch marks so faint that they’re hardly visible. It does come at a cost though, but if I can get this body bikini ready, I’m definitely going to consider it. I also saw before and after pictures of a dude with a black eye- it went from absolutely black and swollen to just slightly red.
About the products:
In addition, they also stock Dermalogica and QMS products, and offer facials using the above 2 products.
I like the facials because I feel like I am getting value for money. The technology they use isn’t something I can do at home. Some of the products they use in a facial aren’t even available for sale for home use.
I had a QMS facial. QMS is formulated by a doctor who is an international authority on all things ageing. His research led to collagen enchancing technology to create a new system of skincare.
Products you can buy:
They’ve got a homecare kit, which TUSC claim is their “first aid” for sensitive skins.
The in salon facial:
Mask number 1. The gadgety thing exfoliates skin.
|Mask number 2. This goes over your entire face, even and mouth, for maximum hydration|
|This is my face! They actually look at the imprint to identify problem areas
I knew I was having a premium facial because my therapist even attempted tackling my whiteheads. Therapists seldom want to remove blackheads, let alone whiteheads. The removal left some tiny red marks which have now disappeared (I had the facial last week Wednesday). My skin was actually glowing after, it looked like I had foundation or bronzer on.
If you’d like to find out more about TUSC and what they offer, they’re situated near CNA at Sandton City. Or go to their website, here.
Now, these pictures may look a bit freaky, but I really wanted you guys to see how advanced it is…
