You don’t have to go under the knife to transform your skin. With various non-invasive treatments, you can give your skin the healthy boost it needs to look years younger. Here’s a recap of my journey.
In my quest to rehabilitate my skin, and to achieve a more youthful appearance, I underwent three non-invasive treatments at one of the best med spas around, SpaMedica, in order to rehabilitate my dull, dry skin.
My motivation is probably what most women in their 30s, 40s and 50+ seek to achieve: healthier, younger looking skin.
Before I began these treatments, I noticed a big change in my skin. Not only did I have dry, uneven skin tone (hello, brown spots!), but I also noticed the appearance of fine lines around my eyes and redness. After having a very detailed assessment from SpaMedica, I decided to undergo three types of treatments to obtain optimum results: IPL FotoFacial, Forma and Fractional 1540 and a Sonopeel.
Each treatment was conducted weekly, alternating between the various procedures. With the exception of the Fractional 1540, all of the procedures didn’t take any down time. Because the Fractional treatment is a little more intense (it gets deep down inside the skin to help rebuild collagen) it takes a day or two for your skin to recover from redness.
Over the course of three months, I began to notice changes in my skin. Immediately, I started to see brown spots disappear. The next major difference I began to notice was the texture of my skin, which felt extremely soft and smooth.
As a few more weeks went by, I noticed the red blotches I would get after a shower also began to diminish. My skin now holds hydration better, which helps make my face look firmer and plumper in areas.
At the end of my treatments (10 in total), I capped things off with a Sonopeel. This peel is one of the best, most gentle microdermabrasion treatments you can get. It’s relaxing and gets rid of all dead skin above and below the surface of our skin. Needless to say, my face felt incredibly clean, hydrated and smooth once completed. It’s a definite must-try.
In addition to these treatments, I treated my skin with Skinceuticals, a dermatologist recommended skincare brand.
One of the most satisfying things aside from noticing all of the beautiful changes to my skin, is other people noticing. From people who know me to strangers, I have been getting compliments on how great my skin looks. My makeup goes on smoother and I don’t need to use a lot of foundation to cover up problem spots.
When your skin looks and feel smooth and healthy, it not only makes you feel more beautiful, it also gives you that extra boost of confidence that makes you feel you can do just about anything. The combination of these treatments has effectively helped firm, tone and repair my skin.
Big thanks to the folks at SpaMedica for giving me the opportunity to help transform my skin in order to look and feel my best!
