‘A welcome alternative to Botox’
Are you reticent about using Botox to freeze fine lines and wrinkles? Then let’s talk alternatives! I think one of the best is at Pfeffer Sal whose ‘Copper Ultra Revive Treatment’ was the perfect solution for my tired, weathered man skin, which was in dire need of TLC. This treatment is delivered in a chic urban space tucked away in a mews in central London. You will feel immediately at home, it’s relaxing, cavernous and I’m guessing a whole lot chicer than your own man cave!
The aim of the Pfeffer Sal ‘Copper Ultra Revive Treatment’ is to leave guys looking less rough and more rugged, and yes it works because I’ve tried it! It can also help tackle other skin damage such as scarring, dark marks, sun damage and ageing. This treatment controls the power of copper as well as top-notch Matrixyl and Hyaluronic acid, which is delivered to the skin through high-tech micro needling.
So what of the treatment? Initially a topical numbing cream was applied to my face to ensure that any pain was minimised. My therapist then used a hand piece with small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin and these small contact points made the skin create a wound healing response and renew cells. Variable treatment intensities followed which triggered the production of collagen and elastin and gave my skin an almost immediate plumping effect.
Sure immediately after the treatment my skin appeared red and flushed, but this was simply an indication that the treatment has been effective and this subsided in a couple of hours. As the natural healing process took time, I’d say that maximum effects from my treatment were visible 4-6 weeks later when I looked decidedly more refreshed and revitalised.
If like me you rate treatments that deliver noticeable results then Pfeffer Sal – Copper Ultra Revive is a winner. It’s a treatment that will leave you feeling lifted, firmed and plumped. It nourished my skin and left a noticeable difference, hell it made me look and even feel a little younger! Thanks Pfeffer Sal I’ll be back, you may not be able to stop the hands of time, but you do know how to slow down their ticking!
