Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion at Bellinter House spa

Ready for a post-lockdown glow up?

Then you need to plan a trip to the gorgeous Bellinter House and Spa in Co. Meath ASAP.

The luxury boutique hotel, located in heart of the lush Boyne Valley in Co. Meath, has reopened its spa doors so both guests and beauty lovers can expect to experience something exceptional.

And PS: You should really get the girls together for this – it sounds like the ultimate spa-cation for a group of friends!

With a recent investment in its stunning spa facilities, the latest addition to the offering at Bellinter House spa is Crystal Clear, a skincare and facial aesthetic brand popular with celebrities like Kate Moss and Madonna.

What can you expect? Pretty much the facial treatments of dreams – with skin to boost after.

Crystal Clear has an array of age-defying products and for those who want to experience a real A-list beauty treatment, and their #1 treatment, the Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion – is the perfect way to get your summer glow on!

According to Spa Manager at Bellinter House, Gillian Foale, the Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion treatment is clinically proven to deliver instant, visible results and changes can be seen after just one treatment.

The procedure focuses on skin exfoliation, allowing superficial peeling through mechanical abrasion of the dead skin cells, where the Crystal Clear technology sees a flow of crystals directly impacting the surface of the skin. The speed of the crystals together with their abrasive nature gently remove the epidermal cells layer by layer, and removed skin cells are drawn away through vacuum action, leaving skin completely rejuvenated and with a natural, gorgeous glow.

Foale explains that the procedure is suitable for all skin colours and skin types and can be used to treat a wide range of skin problems on the face, hands, and body.

“We’re thrilled to have reopened our doors to guests and to now not only be a stockist of the incredible range of Crystal Clear products, from super-serums and age-defying moisturisers to tanning and masks, says Foale.

“But to have also brought in the Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion machine is a real coup for our spa. It’s truly such a unique treatment and in all my years in the business, I have never seen a treatment that has such instant and lasting results. For those with skin sensitivities, it’s a game-changer, as while being extremely effective it’s not an aggressive treatment and as such can really change the entire look and feel of someone’s skin for the better.”

Foale explains that the Crystal Clear Microdermabrasion treatments start from €90.

“We’ve had such a fantastic response from our regulars, saying how great it is to get some treatments and to just feel like themselves again, the entire team is so excited to be back and offering this outstanding new treatment for a post-lockdown lift.”
