Tipping 25 has really got me thinking I need to try and take as much care of my skin as possible. After 4 years of being in work now I feel as though I’m in a routine, as to what I generally tend do each day and the possible effects that this is having on my skin. I wear makeup to work 9-5 everyday.. I also wear it at for at least 1 day at the weekend and probably only have 1 day off a week without it.
When i take my makeup off i try as best as possible to ensure every last bit is gone. However i do feel that over time the use of makeup can clog up the pores and I was starting to feel as though i needed a way of completely unclogging my pores.
I had been researching different skin treatments for some time (having never had one before I felt it was the right time to give it a try). I found a local trusted skin clinic to me in Manchester city centre called Rejuvenate which is based in Northern Quarter.
I decided to book in for a consultation. Before we spoke about any treatments Rejuventate were really interested to find out exactly what results I was looking to achieve so they could recommend the best skin treatment for me. After I had explained my current skin care routine and the things i was looking to get (such as to unblock any pores, remove any congestion and improve fine lines) they recommended that microdermabrasion was the most suitable option.
The treatment lasted approx 1 hour and was actually very comfortable and relaxing. A small little suction device is used (shown in pic below) and is gradually glided over the face and neck. There are different strengths and before one is chosen they do a full assessment of the skin on your face to choose the right one. After the treatment a face mask is applied to hydrate the skin. I was so relaxed at this point I almost fell asleep!
After the treatment I looked in the mirror and my skin was noticeably glowing. I had some skin coloured bumps on my forehead prior to the treatment which i believe was a build up skincells and afterwards when i touched my forehead it was completely smooth. I was so happy. I will definitely be adding microdermabrasion into my skin care and will try and go again soon.
I was so pleased with the results from just one treatment and 100% would go again!
When i applied my makeup the next day it looked more radiant. I can see why people do this as a regular treatment!
