Alison says her skin tone has changed over time and she is looking to get back some of her youthful glow. She visits Dr. Emer to try out his Salt and Sizzle facial. He says the facial helps exfoliate the skin and with the addition of topical products, you can increase the moisture in the skin. Dr. Emer says the facial's sizzle mask treats pigmentation and activates collagen. The facial concludes sitting under an LED light, which Dr. Emer says helps to make the skin's cells more active and heal themselves.
Fresh off her facial, Alison tells The Doctors her face feels tighter and says it removed many of her dark circles, improved her fine lines and helped with her pigmentation.
Dr. Emer says that salt is now being used to brighten the skin, which differs from an old theory that salt was very drying. Dr. Emer says it actually provides a glow. He recommends this treatment for people with oily skin, those who are acne-prone, those who have rosacea and people who do not feel they get enough exfoliation.
