Innovation and skincare are two things that go hand in hand so very well. Our trusted experts at ICLS Dermatology and Plastic Surgery are always on the cutting edge when it comes to caring for our faces and bodies, and these days they are very excited about Glass Skin.
A skincare trend made popular by a combination of K-beauty, viral TikToks and gorgeous, glassy looking results, “glass skin” is a term that refers to the desired results of a variety of different skincare and cosmetic medicine treatments. Those results are exactly like they sound: glass skin, meaning plump, poreless, smooth and glowing skin. And the way ICLS achieves those very desirable results is through SylfirmX radiofrequency microneedling technology.
Non-invasive, painless, easy and quick to administer with virtually no downtime, the ICLS Glass Skin treatment works to improve and refine skin tone and texture for that gorgeous glassy look and feel. The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency technology promotes rejuvenation at the surface of the skin to minimize the appearance of pores, promote the body’s production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, ultimately brightening skin.
I had the chance to go into ICLS and try out the Glass Skin treatment for myself. Each treatment session takes approximately 15 minutes, and ICLS technology expert Jennifer Bonadonna recommends spacing sessions out about four weeks apart. Jennifer herself administered my SylfirmX treatments, giving me what she called a “good” but comfortable treatment, considering my pain tolerance was a bit higher than average, given my experience with other injectables in the past. The treatments intensity level is related to the depth of the micro needling, which can be adjusted depending on the type of treatment being done as well as the desired results.
I found my session was virtually painless, with only minor discomfort on the boniest parts of my face. The session was over very quickly, and already I could see the plump, renewed look taking over my skin, with very little redness or indeed any indication that I’d undergone a treatment at all.
Now a few weeks later, my skin is smoother, plumper looking and feeling, and just glowier. In fact, I haven’t worn a full face of foundation since receiving my treatment, I truly feel like my face doesn’t need it.
