Anyway this blog is long overdue and has been in the pipeline since April. I'm so excited to tell you about my first Microdermabrasion treatment.
I met the lovely Lucy from Eden Skin & Laser Clinic back in January and we got talking about all things skin. As I get older I have really started to take better care of my skin and choose my skincare products and treatments with alot more care. In general my skin is quite good but I do suffer with hormonal breakout, an uneven patchy skin texture and of course the fine lines (I am 35 this year so they are expected). So Lucy suggested I get a Microdermabrasion treatment to help treat some of my problems.
What is Microdermabrasion I hear you ask!
- lines and wrinkle
- sun damaged skin
- acne prone skin
- superficial age spots and hyperpigmentation
- oily, dry or patchy skin
Eden Skin & Laser Clinic
Lucy is so passionate about the treatments & the products that are used in the clinic. My all time favourite skincare guru is Caroline Hirons (http://www.carolinehirons.com/) and those of you read her blog know how passionate she is about skin and skincare. Well Lucy reminds me of her. Oh if your aren't reading Caroline's blog you should be. Amazing woman. Anyway back to Lucy. She is a firm believer that ongoing research and training is vital to delivering the most up to date treatments so that her clients recieve the best treatment available with proven results. I mean what else could you want from your skincare consultant.
After re-reading that paragraph I realise I am totally fangirling on Lucy but she really is that good. And anybody I have spoken to about her and Eden Skin & Laser Clinic totally agree with me. Anyway on to my treatment!!!
My experience with Microdermabrasion
I had to fill in the obligatory paperwork and then Lucy brought me to the treatment room where she explained the entire process to me. I was expecting it to be a little painful but it was more uncomfortable and scratchy than painful. The machine ( a Derma Genesis M2 Medical System for those of you interested) sprays the skin with tiny crystals and what can only be described as a vacuum sucks all the dead layers of skin back off your face. Sounds horrendous but to be honest it was grand. We chatted the whole way through and once Lucy had finished with the actual microdermabrasion she applied a Image Skincare Peel followed by a beautiful serum and SPF to leave my skin glowing with health.
Until next time...Be Happy!!!
