Earlier this month I made a list of the goals I wanted to achieve before the end of December.
In the next two days, I still need to finalize the Alchimie retinol serum, marketing plan and budget, but otherwise, I checked everything off this list. And in the self-care department, I did even better than I set out to do.
I did get a pedicure (purple toes to end 2017 and enter 2018 – given that Ultraviolet is the Pantone color of 2018). I also left for Switzerland with perfect eyebrows (thank you Erwin at Karma by Erwin Gomez). And I took time to do a treatment at Forever Boutique: Me-So-Light.
What is it?
This treatment is a blend between face mesotherapy and micro-needling (for more on micro-needling, read this post). Dr. Bani used a Dermapen (9 microneedles) to make minute perforations in my skin, which enables the “secret sauce” of product to optimally penetrate. The product applied is indeed a secret sauce – a powerful cocktail of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals to help rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, and give you an immediate glow.
Was it painful?
Not at all! I was a bit concerned, but this was much less bothersome than Botox injections.
What did I look like immediately after?
See the photo below! Just a bit flushed, which lasted for about an hour – nothing more.
How did my skin react in the following days?
I went into the Christmas holidays with a nice glow, looking much more refreshed than I felt!
Would I do it again?
Yes! I can’t wait to be back in Lausanne Q1 2018 for my second treatment.
