Help I need Therapie!
What is your relationship with skincare…are you sensible? Do you wear SPF? Do you remove your makeup every night and cleanse,tone, moisture? I have to be honest I’m very lucky because of good genes, I have good skin I’ve never really suffered from breakouts or acne. My skin can be dry, freckled and some days I’ll even go days without makeup. So why the title you ask, why do I need Therapie? The answer my age and my vanity!
I was approached around Christmas time by Therapie Clinic to see if I would be happy to review some of their treatments. I was really intrigued by injectables; Botox and lip fillers. Who wouldn’t be, when we have the A-list running around with bee stung kissable lips and smooth foreheads. I’ve always been paranoid about the wrinkles on my forehead and my small upper lip. So I was intrigued at what could happen to me however when pursuing this option I reached a dead end. The professionals who always having your best interest at heart told me that because of a severe reaction to an insect bite last year I couldn’t proceed on this course of treatment without a doctors sign off. Although I was disappointed by this, I was reassured that the consultant would only carry out procedures when there is no risk and the customer would be satisfied. A big tick in my eyes.
Undeterred I had a consultation with Wendy in the Therapie Clinic Belfast to see what other ageless treatments she could prescribe. Wendy was informative,knowledgeable and she went through all my options in the advanced skin treatment range. We discussed skin peels and micro needling. She prescribed two weeks using the Image Ageless cleanser to prepare my skin, a peel to increase hydration levels and rebalance my tired skin and then a course of three micro-needling sessions to boast collagen in my skin and fingers crossed try and combat some of my fine lines and wrinkles.
So I was set and ready to go!!
My first peel experience happened this week. I was greeted by Niamh the specialist who was to carry out the treatment she had my notes and again discussed what I wanted to achieve. She the. Let me curl up under a blankets while she lavished three layers of a vitamin C rich peel on my face. The peel didn’t stung but I could feel a tingle as it was applied it didn’t last for long and the treatment was finished within the hour. I carried it out on my lunchbreak I had minimal redness and returned to my office glowing.
The first treatment seems to have plumped up my skin and left it with a lovely moisturised texture. I had no flaking or peeling afterwards but I was told this would be normal. I look forward to my next session at the end of the month which will be my first micro-needling treatment. I’m excited to see what wonders this treatment holds and to continue this chapter…
