At the ripe young age of 39 (ok I’m turning 39 in 10 days) lol I’m all about taking care of this maybe not so well oiled machine, I call my body!
But I have been trying to take care of my skin more so in the past few years, so I can prolong having to go under the knife, or just look like a old leather hand bag! Lets be clear…. I love Summer, I don’t use additional sunscreen that isn’t already in my moisturiser or foundation and I’m all about having a natural tan, for as long as I can.
I never get facials, but I was hearing chatter about Microdermabrasion and this new Yellow Light treatment from Laser Clinics Australia.
I have been seeing Danai and her gorgeous team from LCA at Wollongong Central for just over two years now and trust them with not just my laser hair removal, but my skin care regime as well.
So if I was going to have something new done, they would be my people to do it.
I went in last Saturday and was ready for my first Microdermabrasion, which was then followed by the new Yellow Light treatment.
Microdermabrasion is an intensive yet gentle exfoliation treatment that evens, tones and rejuvenates the skin… basically removing all dead skin, removing pimples and congested pores like black heads. I don’t have overally troubled skin, but I do have oily skin and I find working under harsh lights all day, I get little sweat pimples….however I have always had congestion on my nose and chin. Not overally visible, but I know they’re there.
From $50 per treatment.
Yellow Light (aka LED Light Therapy) is a healing light that penetrates deep in to the layers of skin causing rejuvenation, cell repair and increased circulation… a perfect treatment to have, after an intensive treatment.
$69 per treatment.
I’m now 3 days after my treatment and I noticed the following day, that my skin was glowing. I felt that my skin was a little dull and definitely not smooth to touch before my treatment, but as I said it wasn’t overally noticeable. But I couldn’t stop touching my skin the following day. I was able to go makeup free, which was nice and just continued with my normal skin care regime. The past two days back to work and I have noticed that my skin definitely as a more natural shine to it and my congested nose is DEFINITELY so much clearer and smoother. To be honest, I can’t wait to go again in about a week and so and have another treatment!
Here’s a little behind the scenes of how the treatment went. xo
