As the publisher of Atlanta Best Media, I stay pretty busy. I usually only take time out to treat myself to a Pilates class so I was excited to get pampered and try this treatment at It’s Your Skin. Alison O’Neil, a licensed medical esthetician, who has been in the business for thirty-some years, also trained for eight years in dermatology, cosmetology and esthetics. She’s one of Atlanta’s best-kept secrets only seeing about 12 patients a week.
Before my treatment, Alison sat down to tell me exactly what she planned to do, what to expect and what I may feel. She took extra time to get to know me, learn about my normal skincare routine, (products I use, diet and exercise). We talked a lot about good skin beginning with good nutrition! We are very much in agreement with that. She also talked about stress and emotional factors that can play a role in your skincare needs. The No-Peel Peel is gentle and can help reduce fine lines, the size of your pores, improve skin tone and even help calm rosacea.
She began my treatment by removing my makeup and cleaning my skin. Once she applied the treatment, she routinely checked in on my comfort level since it does tingle a little. I was never uncomfortable but you can really feel it working. The product was on for about 10 minutes before Alison thoroughly removed it. As the product was removed, my skin felt so refreshed! My chin and around my nose were a bit red but that was gone within about 30 minutes. I saw progressive improvements in my skin tone throughout the evening and into the next day. One huge bonus for me was the sample Alison sent me home with of Stemulation, a serum that stimulates the natural growth and reproduction of skin cells. My skin feels so soft and has a nice “dewy glow.”
This treatment is meant to be done in a series of three. I can’t wait to see results from the next one after seeing such positive results from just one. Stay tuned and I will keep you posted on my follow-up.
