Couldn’t believe my luck when my name was chosen from a competition with Beauty by Grainne for a free micro needling procedure. Decided not to watch any videos on micro needling after seeing a few photos of the procedure itself in progress. I was reminded time and time again how good it is for the skin and how fabulous my skin would be for my trip to New York.
Micro needling involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. The micro injuries created stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes. resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging.
Grainne applies numbing cream to the whole face and allows 30 mins for the cream to work its magic. I was so chilled out snuggled up with the fluffly blankets and the relaxing music I found myself drifting in and out of sleep.The 30 mins passed and the procedure began. The only way I can describe the feeling is crunching into the skin as the micro needle roller rolled over my skin. There were about three times when I thought, oh God this is stingy.
Then Grainne starting applying something cold on my face and I kind of freaked out a little bit, I dreaded what was to come and asked Grainne what was coming next and to my surprise, the procedure was finished and she was applying a mask which would soak the skin for 20 mins and help cool the skin.
From start to finish the procedure took 1 hour and 15 mins. Grainne went through the after care with me and gave me an Image after care set, which included, cleanser, serum,day cream, vital c mask and night cream. My face wasnt overly red, it looked flushed more than anything and felt a little warm.
Skin looked a little irritated today. Didn’t train today or go swimming as per guidelines.
Lovely glow from my skin today. Continued with the morning and evening care.
My skin, particularly my forehead was very itchy today.I put makeup on today for the first time since the treatment. It didnt sit on my skin very well.
FAB glow from my skin today.
Really really notice how fresh my skin looks today, still havent applied any makeup. The dryness has disappeared also.
One week on, the pic of my skin speaks for itself. LOVE LOVE LOVE
The photos look horrific and and when I saw Grainne’s pictures during her training days I thought “Why would anyone do this to their skin” Well I did and Im so glad I did it. I dont have problem skin but this was such a lovely treat and Im loving this fresh glow from the procedure itself. My face is DEF ready for my trip to New York in 2 weeks.
Cant recommend Grainne enough, I was extremely nervous and she put me to ease straight away and spoke to me throughout the treatment taking my mind of it.
Beauty by Grainne has a FAB Black Friday deal offering 6 Micro Needling sessions for 5oo euros which is a saving of 300 euors.
I cant wait to get booked in again for another treatment, definitely 5 out 5 from me.
Thank you Grainne
