I called my husband over to me this evening and said “feel this”, he ran his hand there, he smiled and he raised his eyebrows, “wow, that’s amazing, it feels like silk, so smooth” as he continued to rub….my forehead. Yes ladies and gents, I have just had my first ever experience of Microdermabrasion and the results are already amazing!

I had a rough idea of what the process involved, but to be honest, a lot of the time I like to go along for the ride and see where the experience takes me. I knew I was in the best hands of Wendy Hemmings, so I was just looking forward to leaving her home salon of The Lakes Beauty Room feeling years younger.

Wendy cleansed my skin and took me step by step through the process, she explained how it would affect and benefit my skin. There is no disputing Wendy’s knowledge base and belief in Microdermabrasion. There is nothing I love more than receiving a service, product or treatment from someone who has years of experience and bags of enthusiasm, you simply can’t Andrea getting ready for her microdermabrasion treatmentfake passion.

I don’t want to ruin the surprise for you should you decide to hot foot it to The Lakes to book, but in short, Wendy rubs a little wand over your face in small circular sections. The wand has millions of tiny crystals that feel like a soft sand paper on your skin, it’s not an uncomfortable sensation but you can definitely feel the wand doing it’s job. It seemed to take no time at all and afterwards your face is cleansed and relieved with a light moisturiser.

Here’s the genius part though, I raised my hands to feel my cheeks as I remained laying down and they were instantly plumper, I kid you not, I have not felt them so spongy and youthful since I was a teenager! I looked in the mirror and was instantly rosy and glowing. I had looked a little grey when I entered the room, grey no more I tell you! My forehead was my biggest concern pre treatment and it now feels as smooth as silk (a rare compliment from my hubby too – that’s always a welcome result!)

Wendy did mention the treatment was quite addictive, and I know personally at least three other ladies who visit her for the same on the regular, I have no doubt at all I’ll be there monthly too, finally treating my skin to a routine it deserves! If you are getting to ‘that age’ and you are suddenly noticing the unwelcome changes in your skin, I can’t recommend Microdermabrasion with Wendy Hemmings enough. What are you waiting for?

P.S. This treatment is perfect to have 24 hours before your Spray Tan. The ‘Brucie Bonus’ is that it will help your tan last longer as it attaches to fresh, soft skin, NOT dry flaky skin!
