Living a busy life in Toronto can lead us down a path of self neglect. Not only is it important to look after your skin to look your best but it’s also vital to FEEL your best! When you take care of your skin you’re making an effort to look inwards and focus on how you feel. Self care is the name of the game! Whether you’re an avid skincare expert or you’re new to the world, FORM Face + Body can help you on your journey to looking and feeling great.
Skincare services can be intimidating! Microneedling has become all the rage and although the word “needle” is nestled in, don’t be nervous. The service is a non-invasive procedure that involves tiny needles pricking the skin to push your body into healing mode. As your skin heals it produces more collagen and elastin which leads to your skin looking tighter, younger and more vibrant! It’s a great service to try out if you’ve been neglecting your skin and need a boost to the system to get you on the right track.
I started really taking care of my skin in February this year and developed a routine that I’ve stuck to (even while travelling abroad for 2 months!) but I still had some dullness I wanted to work on. I started my journey with FORM Face + Body by completing their short questionnaire and taking some photos of my face for the 3D imaging of my skin. This first step allowed the doctors at the clinic to take a look through my current skincare regime and evaluate my images without even having to leave my home! After my skin was evaluated, I had a call with Dr. Somogyi who created a skincare plan with me! He looked at my images and my skin through the virtual appointment and we came up with a plan together that worked for me! Microneedling here I come!
Once my plan was in order, the next step was visiting the clinic for my microneedling treatment. I was honestly a little nervous (I have no pain tolerance) but as soon as I arrived Ora walked me through the clinic and made me feel super comfortable. Before the treatment, numbing cream was applied and the process was almost painless (I say almost because I still felt a bit of irritation of course but it was nothing compared to sugaring your bikini area….). The process only took about 20-30 minutes and I was as red as a lobster afterwards! My skin felt so dry, red and sore for about 3-6 hours after the treatment and I felt really sensitive to touch or heat. The next morning the redness started to fade and by day 3 my skin was starting to look great!
After day 4 I started to see some dryness and flaking on my chin and cheek and freaked out just a bit. I called FORM Face + Body to voice my concerns and they assured me it was the natural shedding process that occurs after the treatment! PHEW! Now all I had to do was trust the process and I was right to do so because now, two weeks later, my skin is absolutely glowing.
