HEAD TO TOE

FACE LIFT

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - WRITERS’ FESTIVAL -

words Some­one asked if I had work dur­ing my hol­i­days. As in Bo­tox etc. No ren­o­va­tions, but a spring clean, I said, with a fa­cial with mi­cro­der­mabra­sion, a non-sur­gi­cal treat­ment us­ing a diamond tip ex­fo­li­at­ing head with vac­uum suc­tion to get rid of dead cells and rev up pro­duc­tion of new cells.

Af­ter a thor­ough con­sul­ta­tion, my ther­a­pist Madeleine set to work on my dry and de­hy­drated skin us­ing cer­ti­fied cru­elty-free Ul­traceu­ti­cals prod­ucts.

With my skin prepped by two cleanses, I was ready for the mi­cro­der­mabra­sion she said would ex­fo­li­ate much deeper than any DIY prod­uct. Not sure what to ex­pect, I was pleas­antly sur­prised at how gen­tle, pleas­ant even, the vac­uum felt.

With the dead skin cells sloughed away my skin was given a drink with a hy­drat­ing serum fol­lowed by a re­plen­ish­ing mask. While the mask did its thing Madeleine gave me the best hand and arm mas­sage ever. Lastly, she re­moved the mask and ap­plied eye­cream and sun­screen, ad­vis­ing me to wear it daily. I was thrilled at the im­prove­ment in my skin, which looked and felt mois­ture-packed with the fine lines around my eyes vis­i­bly re­duced... and the glow hasn’t worn off. My prod­ucts are per­form­ing bet­ter and I’m lov­ing the no-longer-dry-and de­hy­drated skin I’m in.
