I absolutely LOVED my first facial at Neville Hair and Beauty (the venus freeze facial) by the lovely Clare-Marie Peters, so when I was informed Clare had partnered exclusively with 111skin (an amazing brand I shall be reviewing soon-the crazy-looking mask I am wearing in the photo is the 111 Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask used as part of the treatment and is the best face at-home-face-mask I have EVER tried - hands down) and created the 111Skin Micro Pen (similar to dermaroller but painless!!) Facial I just knew I had to try it!The 111Skin Micro Pen Facial incorporates two technologies: Radio Frequency and The Micro Pen, combined with 111Skin Products: Y Theorem Serum, Bio Cellulose Mask and the infamous Celestial Black Diamond Cream (yes that one that costs £599...)....
As I am such a huge fan of the Venus FreezeFacial ,Clare decided to use the Venus Freeze RF as part of my treatment. The Radio Frequency (RF) raises the temperature of the skin, causing controlled thermal damage and thereby stimulating the skin to repair itself, producing new collagen and elastin leaving skin glowing, plumped and tightened - and it's super relaxing.
The micro pen creates numerous ultra-fine puncture wounds over the treatment area which stimulates the body’s natural healing process, prompting the natural release of the skin’s collagen and elastin for amazing anti-aging benefits. The micropen glides over the skin whilst vibrating so fast it reduces any discomfort (-it doesn't hurt in the slightest - yay!) and it makes the skin very open to absorbing products. This type of skin needling collagen induction therapy can be used for skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation, acne scars and wound healing, improvement in wrinkles and fine line, pigmentation, stretch marks and minimising pore size
The two technologies compliment each other as the RF works on the tissues directly under the skin to plump and tighten, and the micr pen targets the superficial layers for a resurfacing affect, refining pore size deeply cleansing the skin.
After Clare finished using the RF and the MicroPen, she applied the 111 Skin Y Theorem which significantly boosts collagen production, supports cell regeneration, improves the elasticity of the skin and contains aminocaproic acid which heals, calms and soothes skin, followed by the 111skin bespoke bio cellular mask which is the most refreshing, gorgeous, comforting, soothing sensation ever as it instantly locks moisture into your skin and enables a deeper penetration of three key ingredients Arbutin to brighten, Silk Amino Acids to condition and Centella Asiatica to stimulate collagen production. The face mask is removed and a layer of the 111skin Black Diamond cream (yes it costs £599 per pot - I KID YOU NOT) is applied, which utilizes an innovative delivery system of rare diamond particles believed to have formed in space (for real - mad!). Black diamond particles are microspheres that penetrate the deeper dermal layer of the skin in order to transport three essential youth restoring ingredients: patent- pending NAC Y2 formula, Collagen type I and III and Hyaluronic acid.
Unsurprisingly, given this amazing combination, my skin felt absolutely gorgeous after this facial, it felt hydrated, smooth and balanced and my makeup applied like an absolute dream for the next couple of weeks. I do love a good old 'pamper' massage now and then, but usually, I like facials that 'work' - where you go in and you SEE and FEEL an immediate difference and one that lasts - and this is exactly that, it's a facial that truly works. It uses high-tech, innovative products and is guaranteed to make a difference to your skin. Plus I'm so pleased there is a tool out there offering similar results to the dermaroller (the at-home dermaroller I love and can handle but having it professionally done really, really tested my pain threshfold) but PAINLESS- hallejuah thank god for the invention of the dermapen and YAY for the 111Skin Micro Pen Facial(*) at Neville Hair andBeauty!
