The Kapamilya stars were among the first to try Belo Medical Group's latest facial treatment, the Salt Facial.
Leila Alcasid, as part of her preparations for the recently held ABS-CBN Ball 2019, had it at the Belo Beauty Suite.
Did you know she went to the ball without any make-up foundation right after she got the treatment?
Other Kapamilya stars that tried this treatment before the ball were Piolo Pascual, Enrique Gil, Sue Ramirez, Heaven Peralejo, Mccoy De Leon, Barbie Imperial, and Daniella Stranner.
WHAT IS SALT FACIAL?
This three-step Salt Facial that helps "restore, replenish, and rejuvenate" the skin in an hour or less.
Dra. Vicki Belo said this treatment is perfect for those who have oily, acne-prone skin.
It also has great results on minimizing wrinkles and even erasing stretch marks.
She said, "It goes to the dermal level. It uses salt, which has so many benefits for the skin, and we're bringing that machine. It's a brand new machine that we're bringing in, and we've seen amazing results for stretch marks."
Dra. Vicki and her team particularty timed the introduction of the treatment with the ABS-CBN Ball precisely to demonstrate to the stars its immediate results without skin irritation or downtime.
“We chose it for the ball because, of course, we have to have calm skin for the night that will catch the light so it will reflect back and they will keep glowing.”
The treatment actually starts with the aesthetician cleaning the face with a cold facial cleanser that is very soothing to the skin.
This is followed by the natural sea salt exfoliation that removes dead skin cells.
Sea salt is a natural product that has anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, which kill pimple-causing bacteria.
The process uses a wand-like tool connected to the exfoliating machine that uses closed-loop pressure with microfine medical-grade sea salt.
The result is tighter and healthier skin that better absorbs skincare products.
After this, a Mandelic or Glycolic acid will be applied on the face, depending on the client's needs. This stem cell-rich gel are massaged and infused on the skin using ultrasound technology.
The last part is the LED light therapy, which is adjusted according to the condition of the skin.
Blue light is used to minimize inflammation and kill acne-causing bacteria. Meanwhile, red light promotes collagen production and also helps promote healing.
Dra. Vicki said that it also comes in green for pigmentation.
Immediate results can be noticed after the treatment. The skin feels softer, and glowing in an instant.
The Salf Facial will soon be available at Belo Clinics nationwide.
