There are so many fascinating beauty treatments out there. I’ve tried a lot of them, but I’m always up to try a new treatment and see how it works!
One treatment that I just tried is microneedling with Aesthetics Biomedical’s Vivace Experience.
Microneedling may sound scary—as the name suggests, it involves very tiny needles on your skin—but it was totally painless!
Before getting to the fun part, my skin was first cleansed and prepped with a numbing cream that ensured I wouldn’t feel the needles during the treatment.
A little champagne before the microneedling! Any spa treatment feels more luxurious with a little champagne or hot tea and soft music. (Side note from About Face: Although it is a luxurious touch, we would definitely recommend NOT having alcohol before a treatment! Alcohol is a blood-thinner, and you should avoid all blood-thinning substances before any injection treatment, or treatment where your skin is being broken. Blood-thinners make you more susceptible to bruising, bleeding, and swelling.)
Then it was time for the actual microneedling.
Aesthetics Biomedical created The Vivace™ device, which combines microneedling and radio frequency to really get into the skin.
The main goal of microneedling is to stimulate collagen production, which can do everything from minimizing wrinkles and stretch marks to toning your skin.
After the microneedling, I had a serum applied to my face, followed by a face mask.
The whole process didn’t take long at all, and I immediately felt like my skin was glowing, smoother, and toned. Once the numbing cream wore off, my skin felt so clean and refreshed!
The best part was that there was very little downtime afterwards. It was recommended that I refrain from wearing makeup for about 5 hours after the Vivace microneedling, but it didn’t leave my skin red and irritated like some facial treatments can.
