Have you seen this meme?
And how true is this! These funky Steve Madden shoes were all the rage when I was in middle school, and now all of us are just getting older. The late 20s and the early 30s are the TIME that we need to really get into skincare-- even the meme urges us to pay attention to our skin! We're getting wrinkles. Our makeup doesn't go on as beautifully as it used to. We're losing that youthful glow. I don't know about you, but I'm not interested in going down the rabbit hole that is Botox, so I wanted a more natural way to get my skin to appear smooth and plump and combat the wrinkles.
That's the question that I've been asking myself. I've been using creams and toners and serums and such, but after looking at a couple of pictures where my skin just looked old, I wanted to try something new. After doing some research and checking out a lot of options in town, I decided to try a microdermabrasion treatment and an oxygen facial at Bodybrite Baton Rouge. I found that if you do the two treatments TOGETHER, they work better since once compliments the other.
Tanya, the esthetician who did my treatment, was absolutely wonderful. She explained everything that she was going to do before she did it and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. The place itself was clean and bright and I felt very at ease!
The first step of the treatment that I went in for is the microdermabrasion. This removes all the dead skin cells, blackheads, etc. and really clears pores and reduces wrinkles. It is practically a vacuum for the face. She used three different nozzles for the different parts of my face, but every inch of the face was treated.
Right after this, since your face will be nice and clean of excess skin, the oxygen facial replenishes and plumps the skin. They gently spray on serum and then go over that with oxygen to really infuse the skin with the serum that was previously applied. It gets into every pore since you just had your pores cleaned out!
She did one side of my face first and let me look in the mirror- I could see SO much difference in the plumpness of my skin. It was radiant and glowing and just altogether smooth! I was confident enough to go out in public (and post on Instagram!) this pic of me without makeup at Magpie Cafe right after!
Microderm + Oxygen Facial= Gorgeous Skin! I am SUCH a believer! I'm going back this weekend so that Tanya can start some IPL laser hair removal for me!
***This set of treatments together is normally $129, but if you call them and tell them imlivingforthesummer sent you, you'll get both treatments together for $109! Grab that while you can! Isn't it time you treat yourself ??
They are located right on Perkins Road, next to the Rum House and the old McAlister's Deli. I wholeheartedly 100% recommend them- they do teeth whitening, laser hair removal, facials, microneedling, and more! I'll definitely be back!
