Jan’s journey in Image Wellness
July 31, 2016
I’m Jan Rodenfels, I’m a health coach and the author of Amazing in the Second Half. I just had my first treatment at Skin Perfect. I had some reservations about trying it as my skin is very sensitive and I wasn’t sure how it would react. I had a client to go to immediately after my treatment. I was worried that I would be red and he would know I had had “something done”! I am 56 years old and I want to take care of my skin but I don’t want anything too invasive.
I met with Ashley in Skin Perfect’s beautiful Polaris spa. First, Ashley did a Skin Evaluation to analyze my skin, explaining that she will decide how to treat my skin based on this analysis. I thought this was very interesting. I had thought I didn’t have much collagen left, but she assured me that I did still have some.
Then, she took me to a treatment room and I passed by their estheticians who ALL have amazing skin. This gave me hope that my skin would improve! After climbing in the most wonderful cocoon-like bed that was heated and covered up with a sheet and a soft blanket, Ashley went to work on me.
She did something called dermaplaning that gently removes dead skin cells. Then she numbed my skin with a lidocaine cream and after I was numb began the collagen induction therapy.
I braced myself for pain, accepting the necessary evil to have beautiful skin. It really didn’t hurt! The little bit of discomfort was on my forehead. I decided the bed was so comfortable and warm that she could do whatever she wanted!! Each pass, Ashley put a serum on my face that will help plump up my skin and build collagen.
Next was the light therapy treatment. Light therapy uses pulses of heat and light to even skin tone, reduce wrinkles and even soothe rosacea! I really liked the idea of this treatment because I have a lot of redness to my skin. I was given small goggles to wear. It was warm on my skin but very tolerable.
The last treatment in my series was the microcurrent facelift. It is very relaxing and I literally fell asleep for a moment while I was having it. It’s really a workout for your facial muscles, but you don’t have to do any of the work!!
I really enjoyed my first treatment at Skin Perfect and I can’t wait to see the results in a few weeks. I’m so excited to finally do something for my skin, something just for me!! On the drive to my client, I couldn’t stop touching my face. It felt so smooth and although a tiny bit pink, my client didn’t notice a thing! I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
