There comes a point in everyone’s life when they realize bar soap and cheap face lotion isn’t cutting it anymore. Everyone ages differently of course, but all anti-aging solutions can be found at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. I wanted to share my story about my anti-aging routine and what steps I’m taking to combat father time. The first step is admitting that you need a little help.
For me, it was realizing my fine lines had turned into full on forehead canals and my brows had fallen to the point of being cartoonish. Alas, I found skincare-salvation when I met with the registered nurse at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, and we discussed the treatment options for my specific concerns. There’s something so comforting about being in the hands of a medical professional, and might I add, one that works in the NICU unit (hello, gentle touch) rather than some random who might not have the same experience.
Michelle, the RN from Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa, put me on the right direction for my skincare concerns. Firstly, we started by addressing my most immediate concern; wrinkles! With a few subtle pinches, Michelle had administered Botox in my forehead. The miracle treatment, Botox, not only has fantastic results, but also works fast. I saw results as soon as two hours after.
Now that my wrinkles had quickly been addressed, I was anxious to correct something that had bothered me for ages. Acne scars had haunted my cheeks since my post-high school days and no matter what at-home torture device or chemical peels I used, there was no shaking them. Michelle suggested the PRP Facial to treat my acne scars. Otherwise and more famously known as the Vampire Facial, the PRP Facial is actually way less gory than you’d imagine.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, and it’s the key ingredient in this treatment. You start off by Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa’s in-house nurse drawing your blood, and separating the PRP by way of a spinning it in a machine. The serum-like PRP is applied to your face after you’ve received micro needling— the process of a tiny little needles puncturing your face (with medical-grade numbing cream) promoting growth of elastin and collagen. The best part of the PRP Facial is that it couldn’t be more natural, due to the fact it came out of your own arm.
After a series of three PRP Facials, my skin had never looked better. Those pesky acne scars had finally been defeated and the texture of my skin was so incredibly different. Now that my skin was well on its way, Michelle recommended a few products to ensure the longterm results of my new mug. I picked up a few products from SkinMedica, which is carried at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. I opted for AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, a face wash that scrubs away dead skin that helps improve skin tone and texture. Also, Michelle wanted me to protect my investment and the work I’ve done on my face, so I picked up the Essential Defense Everyday Clear SPF 47.
With just a few simple steps and the help of Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa in Gilbert, Arizona I was able to achieve all of my anti-aging goals. There’s something so rewarding about investing in yourself and the way you look.
