I have been absolutely dying of L O V E for Toorak Beauty Lounge since my visit a month ago. I couldn’t get back their soon enough!
Apart from being asked if I am pregnant more than a few times (don’t get excited mum, I’m NOT pregnant), I can happily say my skin is glowing – and I love it! Now I am wearing less make up, have loads more confidence and want to share with you what I’ve been doing.
I asked Kat to give me a quick run-down on all the products and processes she used, as well as some key points to remember when considering Skincare. You can see my results a few days after the treatment, with a few extractions still slightly going down. My skin feels completely amazing and I’m wearing no make-up at all!
As usual, Kat was warm and welcoming, and the treatment room was immaculately presented. It was so nice to have such a plush location that mimicked the service.
First, we started with an Osmosis Facial Infusion with Micro-Dermabrasion. Instead of using the typical crystals or diamonds, TBL uses an Organic Flower Grain which is softer and pain-free, and smells a treat. The micro removes the top layer of dead skin cells and allows easier penetration of the ingredients for the infusion, and I am already so relaxed, I’m beginning to fall asleep.
I awaken though, when we deal with the extractions. Not as much fun, or relaxing, but beneficial all the same.
Step three consisted of the infusion (my favourite!). Kat tells me that it’s a non-acid peel that it creates a substantial increase in fibroblast activity, as well as significant stimulation in collagen production. Good bye wrinkles! Hel-lo glow! The Osmosis products she uses contain key ingredients such as Retinaldehyde and Niacinamide (and a few more), and really focus on reworking my dermis layer, which I’m happy about. There’s no point wasting time on the outer layers when all the drama is below the surface. Prevention is always better than cure, right?
Not only does the infusion thicken my dermal layer (which helps in stopping pimples and congestion from forming in the first place), it also helps to lift hyper pigmentation. As I am so often wearing make up, my skin struggles to breath and so often I have little blackheads build up around my nose and my forehead.
Even only after one month, I’ve been lucky enough to work with Kat and slowly introduce a more beneficial Skincare routine, that’s uber effective – and I am so pleased with the results! Less blackheads, almost no pimples and much, much clearer skin. Even my pigmentation has improved immensely, and I couldn’t be happier. I am so grateful to have found the Lounge, and encourage you to do the same. Your results will speak for themselves (minus the actual pregnancy!).
