During my initial consultation, Rebecca asked me about my expectations and skin concerns. I explain that I was a bit confused with all the different procedures and all the different treatments available. Like most women, I was hoping to improve my skin condition. Looking to achieve a healthy glow, firmer skin, improve skin tone and overhaul get a more youthful look. I also mentioned the sun damage concerned I have obtain over the years. After years of sun exposition, I had develop some small skin pigmentation patches or "sun spots" on my cheekbones and forehead.
Rebecca came up quickly with a plan of actions right in line with my needs. On the same day of the consultation we proceed with the first treatment. Face Lift Massage Therapy or Venus Magic Hands. One of her therapist used electro-fabric gloves, which are nick-named “Magic Hands” due to the unrivalled benefits they boast for improving skin health. The 30 minute massage delivers a microcurrent to the face and neck. The soft massage uses highly-advanced B.E.A.M™ technology to activate facial muscles and increase fibroblast activity by 60 per cent to leave the face looking tighter and fresher. Sure, it was a very enjoyable (despite a slight metallic taste in your mouth) and soft process but it definitely improve my skin, giving me a more de-stress face and diminish fine lines for a more youthful looking face. Not sure if it lasted but I got a nice boost of "feel good" factor.
The following visit was schedule 3 days later after the weekend. Ready to proceed with a less enjoyable treatment this time around, I was a little nervous but very excited to tackle my sun damage thanks to the new laser treatment: Spectra Laser. Rebecca performed the procedure herself, she passed the laser over my entire face, I could feel a light prickling feeling and hear some snapping sounds, nothing to uncomfortable. After Rebecca concentrated on the sun spots we talked about, the ones I wanted to remove and see disappear. This part was a bit more tingling and warm but again nothing painful. The laser works in two way, gently target the melanin and stimulate collagen.
During the treatment, the laser pass penetrates deep into the dermis to stimulate skin cell regeneration and exfoliate the outermost layer of skin. The multiple benefits are shrinking pores, reducing sebum production, stimulating collagen, as well as fracturing the melanin that causes uneven pigmentation. The subsequent new collagen and elastin fibre translates into healthier, firmer, and tighter skin; while the new even skin tone ensures skin looks more youthful!
Right after the laser treatment, her therapist applied a wonderful cooling mask. I walked out with my face slightly pinkish and my "sun spots" where turning already darker and forming fine "scab" looking patches. After about 4 days the small ones where already peeling off and within a week all of them had disappear. Leaving my skin much more smooth and even toned. It's obviously very important to protect your skin well from the sun during and after the "recovering" time. Now over two weeks since the procedure, I am so happy with the result. The laser had tackle imperfections such as pigmentation, aging and uneven skin tone.
Spectra Peel is such a gentle procedure, your Doctor will recommend a treatment course that is right for you. After just one session, I am very pleased with the results, just what I was hoping for!
