Extreme Beauty: Laser Facial Part Three

It’s been several months now since my last laser facial. I recently finished my package of three Skin Brightening treatments after a series of Vivid Face‘s Signature Treatments. After trying something new, I like to step back from it and ask myself how it went: Do I see the results? How did my skin change? Did it change for the better? Now that I’ve had some time between treatments, I can share the full scoop on laser facials. So here goes:

The first set of signature treatments I did back to back, with just a week to 10 days between. Upon the first treatment I noticed a difference in the pigment in my skin. It seemed brighter. Almost immediately. And the best part was being able to walk out and apply makeup immediately with no down time at all.

Over the next few weeks, I noticed my skin got brighter and brighter. And that’s when I realized I was hooked. Laser facials go deeper than just the surface of your skin. And because they do that, they work long after the 20-minute treatment ends. But what most locked it my love affair with laser facials was how it cleared up my adult acne. Just cleared it up. Like magic.

And that’s why I went back for another round. Only this time I opted for Skin Brightening treatments. Again, I went for three with the hopes of removing acne scars and sun damage. These treatments are spaced out about a month apart. I can honestly say by the end of this series, I was wearing less coverup on my skin than ever before. My foundation lasts longer than ever because I’m wearing less. I don’t even prime before I apply anymore. I just go. And that is a beautiful thing. It’s a beautiful thing that makes me feel like my skin is beautiful enough to show the world and not hide behind layers and laters of foundation. Like here, when I was getting my makeup done and the makeup artist told me how nice my skin was. That made me feel great.

Now that it’s been more than a minute between treatments, I noticed my skin is starting to break out again. Sadly, it’s hormonal and completely adult acne related, which is frustrating. Super frustrating. At close to 40 my skin breaks out more than it did when I was a teen. Prior to laser facials I was on prescription medication to help get my skin under control. And do you know what ended up working better for me than doctor-prescribed medicine? Laser facials at Vivid Face. Now that I’ve experienced those laser facials and know how helpful they can be to my acne woes, I know exactly where to go to stop the problem before it gets worse.

My takeaway from my treatments at Vivid Face is this: If you aren’t happy with the state of your skin, you don’t have to hide it behind makeup. You aren’t stuck with it. You don’t have to live with it. If you want to put your best face forward, this is how. There’s a team there willing to sit and listen and advise you on what’s best for your skin. I’m so happy I did it.

If it’s something you feel like you want to do, consider a consultation. If you decide to move forward, here’s a little something to make it even more affordable: to get 50 percent off the Vivid Laser Facial Treatment Intro Offer Three-pack, use code VGH867.
