MicroNeedling Facial by Vanilla Orchid Beauty (Essel)

I really feel that after 40 you start to realize that all the magazines , tv ad’s and grannies wives-tales could actually mean something!

LIKE,” look after your skin , don’t lie in the sun with a whole bottle of Pizbuin smothering your face and body!”
Wear a hat in the sun and don’t burn so much!!

I look in the mirror and see these wrinkles and skin-spots and wonder .. what was I thinking ?

I was thinking at the time, how tanned and hot I am looking in my white outfit at Joe Kools on Sunday nights , not that in 25 years I would be wishing I had listened!!

Farhana the Owner of Vanilla Orchid Beauty Salon advised that I try the – Facial -Microneedle Pen focussing on the Recovery Serum from the Asethetic Range From Essel.

I would also like to say that Farhana has the most incredible Skin and uses all her products/procedures on herself , so she is a true testament of the Range and Procedures she offers.

You also have to remember that a facial is not going to fix everything in one swoop , it will hopefully help my skin rejuvenate and prevent further damage and I need to follow a skin routine and further facials!

What is Micro Needling?
It is a procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury in order to rejuvenate the skin.
Micro-needling is used to treat and Improve Your Skin.
This is a Great Video to watch and explains the procedure you would be having

(Mark B. Taylor, M.D. is a world-renowned dermatologist and cosmetic laser surgeon who has been in practice for over thirty years.)

And what are the Benefits of Micro Needling?
Improve conditions like Acne , Scarring , Fine Lines , Wrinkles , loose skin , skin texture ,pore size , brown spots , stretch marks and pigment issues!
I have read that Micro-needling is really good for anti-aging and pigmentation of the skin and this is my main reason for this facial!!

How many Micro-Needling Facials would you suggest?

Anti-Aging/Wrinkles 1 facial a month for about 3/4 months ( Good to have 4-6 weeks break inbetween) = Lasts up to 2 Years!
