I have never been into beauty maintenance, in fact I am quite lazy. Over the past few years since I found exercise I guess I have become a little more interested or it could be because I am getting older. I hit the big 40 this March and decided maybe it was time to try and fight a few of these wrinkles.
I have a lovely friend called Michelle who works as a Manger at Derma Spa in Milton Keynes. Michelle is one of those amazing girls that you cannot help fall in love with when you meet. Michelle unlike me has always been in love with all things beauty and has only recently moved over to the beauty industry but it couldn't suit her any better!
I decided to try Collagen Wave after hearing all the raves about it.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN WAVE ?
'The Collagen wave skin tightening treatment has now cemented its place as one of the most consistent performers when it comes to offering clients healthy rejuvenated skin.
With the Dermaspa clinic being only one of a handful of clinics offering this procedure appointments for the treatment have risen significantly due to the overall result this procedure can offer its clients
This particular machine has been created and brought onto the market by our visiting Cosmetic Physician Dr Saleh (FRCS(Ed), MRCPI, MSC(UCL) who has worked all over the world lecturing and continuing to improvement aesthetic procedure'
Radio frequency combined with ultrasound waves are used to heat up the deeper layers of the skin to encourage the production of new collagen. This non-invasive treatment is a painless effective way of long-term non-surgical skin tightening and lifting.
Treatment is carried out using a machine with a probe which the operator gently slides around the face delivering radiofrequency energy into the skin.
Courses of 3-10 treatments spaced 1-4 weeks apart are recommended. The results may last up to 2 years depending on age, genetics, extent of response and treatment.
However, remember that your skin is constantly ageing, so it is envisaged that further top up treatments of one or more session as maintenance every 3 /4 months may be needed'
I was a little nervous during my first session but the therapist who treated me called Tamsin was amazing, she put me at ease straight away. I was prepared for it to feel a little uncomfortable but in all honesty it was absolutely fine! Laying still for an hour is always a big ask of me but seriously Tamsin was a pure delight to chat to.
The best way I can describe this treatment in my own words - I felt as if I had had my skin ironed out. I actually saw the tiny fine lines disappear especially from near my eyes. I have one big crease that runs across my forehead, I have seen a vast improvement here too. It hasn't completely gone but it is not as deep as it was.
I would recommend this treatment if you have wrinkles you want to rid, I also think this is a nice alternative to botox. saying that I have read it works really well alongside that too.
I also need to tell you all that whilst I was in the beauty salon I saw several celebrities (who knew MK was so cool). I am not very good at recognising celebrities but even I knew who they were and that is saying something! I am more likely to recognise Instagram Mums but I must say it did kind of impress me that MK is on the beauty map.
The salon was founded by the amazing Nilam Patel and what an incredible woman she is. Nilam was also the founder of the well known HD BROWS that has changed the world of brows as we know it. As you all know I am a huge fan of female entrepreneurs and this lady is a shining example of realising your dreams.
