I Tried It: Microneedling Facial

I have been following FFAesthetics forever now swooning over their work at their Columbus location. I was soooo excited when I heard they were coming to my city.

I visited the NEW Face Forward Aesthetics location here in Cincinnati.

So Microneedling…it kinda sounds scary, cause well…tiny needles on your face?

I promise it’s not!

I came in and they put the numbing gel all over my face. I laid in the bed and did some social media scrolling for 30 minutes – then it was show time.

My nurse was fabulous. She was actually training a shadow so it was really informative listening to her describe all of the steps. It was really interesting. Our bodies are so cool!

 

10-15 minutes and wha-lah.

I was looking all cool with blood on my face!

My nurse said I have really thick skin (Yass I do girl) and she said I have good collegian! I do use collegian powder in my coffee everyday so this makes me think it’s doing something right!!

So now what?! What was all of that for?! What did I just do?

So Microneedling gently stimulates the skin with very fine needles that encourage natural collagen & elastin production, improve skin tone, texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, or blemishes. -All the things I want!

According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment.

So I am a few weeks out and here is my skin!

I’m obsessed.

I can’t wait to go back to Face Forward!

If you visit them, please tell them I sent you!

I Tried It: TAO Float Loft

A few weeks back we celebrated spring break in Cincinnati (rain everyday). It was really chill and we made no plans besides speech therapy and dentists appointments. We did lots of reading, snuggling, movie watching, and board game playing. I am so blessed that my boys absolutely adore each other, but once being together hit the 72 hours straight mark, things got a little dicey. I decided to schedule myself  a mom time out, aka a float at TAO Float Loft.

5 Things To Know Before Getting Your Eyebrows Microbladed

So this week I got my eyebrows microbladed…it was magical. 

For those of you that don’t know…“Microblading  is a form of semi-Permanent Makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.” Microblading uses a hand-held-tool that looks like an X-ACTO knife. It puts pigment into the skin but doesn’t go as deep as a tattoo. 

AKA A GAME CHANGER!
