Your Questions Answered

Q: How does the Crystal Clear Skin System work?
A: The Crystal Clear handset is placed on the skin and a fine flow of microscopic crystals is directed onto the surface of the skin. The speed of the crystals, together with their abrasive nature, gently removes old, dead skin cells layer by layer. Specific attention is given to any areas of concern such as open pores, wrinkles, blemished skin & acne scarring.

Q: What are the benefits of treatment with Crystal Clear?
A: Crystal Clear delivers immediate visible results. By performing a gentle skin exfoliation & lift, it successfully treats a wide range of skin problems of both the face and body. Even after the first treatment, the skin feels smooth, fresh and visibly lifted,
The treatment is suitable for all skin colours and skin types and is particularly effective in reducing moderate early ageing signs of lines and wrinkles promoting overall rejuvenation for aged skin. Perfect for congested skin with open pores, comedones and acne prone skin - deeper exfoliation can significantly help thickened, blemished skin and acne scarring it is also extremely effective for sun-damaged skin.

Q: I have a very uneven skin tone and have recently noticed dark patches beginning to appear. Can Crystal Clear help?
A: There are many reasons why dark patches appear on the skin. Most obvious causes are use of oral birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, pregnancy or interaction with certain medications. Repeated sun exposure or over exposure also plays a part, as does inflammation or trauma caused to the skin. Certain chemicals found in perfumes etc. can also result in pigmentation marks occurring. Regular treatment with Crystal Clear and the use of Crystal Clear Brightening Complex will encourage the unwanted pigment to move up through the epidermal layers and be exfoliated. As no chemicals are used Crystal Clear makes the ideal choice for treating all skin colours.

Q: Will Crystal Clear reduce or prevent lines and wrinkles?
A: Crystal Clear can have quite a dramatic effect on ageing skin as regular treatment renews the skin texture allowing a fresher more rejuvenated skin to emerge. Lines and wrinkles are reduced and the skin is firmed and lifted.
Regular exfoliation will remove dead skin cells allowing a more radiant and youthful skin to emerge. Regular stimulation to the microcircution aids in the production of new collagen and elastin formation can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help the skin retain a youthful appearance longer.

Q: I suffer from acne and have some bad acne scarring. Can Crystal Clear help?
A: With acne prone skin, dead cells build up around the hair follicles and the resulting blockage can lead to several problems, including comedones and congestion. Regular treatment with Crystal Clear Skin System will help remove the excessive build-up of dead cells, removing blockages, cleansing the pores and preventing further build up of surface oil to reduce any future outbreaks of pimples. With acne scarring a small portion of the deep germinative skin layer is damaged leaving it full of fibrous scar tissue. The scar is depressed, as healthy tissue destruction is more in-depth. Regular treatments with the Crystal Clear Skin System will result in a smoother skin and help create a ‘blended’ effect of the surrounding scar tissue making the scar tissue less noticeable.

Q: Can Crystal Clear Skin System be used on any other area of the body?
A: Absolutely! Crystal Clear body polishing is an extremely effective anti-cellulite treatment (especially when used in conjunction with Crystal Clear Xcell Upo Gel). Crystal Clear can also treat postnatal stretch marks and any sort of scarring and is ideal as a flash-exfoliation before self-tanning products are applied.

Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: Even after the first treatment, the skin feels smooth and fresh. Typically, a course of 10 treatments is recommended to provide total skin rejuvenation. Your therapist will create a personalised course of treatments and prescribe the Crystal Clear home care products specifically to suit your needs. Lifestyle and age will determine the number of treatments recommended to achieve maximum results.
