If you have been reading my blogs then you know I am not well versed in the world of facials. I don’t know what does what…if it’s painful, if it’s relaxing, if it’s rejuvenating, if it will fix my face…you get the idea. I am clueless! I just want what is going to help my face with the adult acne….see the recurring theme here.
I have put my trust in the ladies at Amara. My new BFF Janet said that we needed a microdermabrasion (I think I spelled that right). The staff all promised me that I would enjoy it. You’ll love it, they said. This is where the voice in my head says, “Proceed with caution, your trainer has said similar things about how much fun you’re gonna have and then you end up crying and begging for mercy on the gym floor.” I agree to the micro derma whatever it’s called…I proceed with caution.
Thank goodness Janet and the Amara staff don’t have the same definition of “fun” that my trainer has. These ladies actually mean “You’ll love it” when they say it. This treatment was awesome! Here is the official definition from the Amara website. This treatment exfoliates dead skin cell build-up, and improves cell turnover. It also helps to smooth the texture of your skin. Microdermabrasion treatments include face, neck and chest as well as a brow and lash tinting.
That is a definition of what it does, but not how amazing it feels. Very relaxing. Very comforting. Very soothing. Very effective.
Below is the video of my experience with the Microdermabrasion. I was able to relax even with Edward our videographer in the room…. I probably would have fallen asleep if he wasn’t there. I know there is a “Twilight” joke in that statement somewhere, but for the sake of “Edward” and you….I won’t try and find it.
