70 days to go and a small beauty budget!...what treatments should I do?

Recommended Posts

I meet with an aesthetician next week, but I would like to get some opinions on what works best. I have fair skin and strawberry blond hair. My skin is usually extremely oily, but the differin I use has kept it pretty dry. My acne is pretty much under control (battled with it my whole life), but my skin looks so dry and dull, plus I have large pores and uneven color. I only want to spend around $300 max (3 treatments?)...so what will give me the max results? a couple microdermabrasions? mix of peels and micro? just peels? facials? I have read through previous posts, but can't come to a conclusion. Also, how long do I have to wait in between treatments? How close to the wedding should I get my last procedure?

 

Sorry for all the questions, but I have never even had a facial so I am at a loss. Thanks!

I am currently doing acid peels and micro and it is great I get a treatment done every 2 weeks. I am a bit red and peel for a couple of days but then my skin looks great! I am also now using Obagi products which are awesome.

Does this get rid of wrinkles or is it for acne? I'm so oblivious to this stuff... I have no idea. What does the treatment do for your skin?

I am doing it to get rid of fine lines and freckles/sun spots but I do believe it is also good for acne scaring. I am not sure if there a Vibrance MedSpa by you I think it is a chain but they are having a bridal special buy 3 get 3 free so it is a huge savings.

Sure I am doing the Glycolic Peel with Vibradermabrasion I paid for 3 sessions at $600 then they gave me 3 sessions so they were only $100 which is better at a different place I was paying around $100 for a regular facial (of course this is not as relaxing but works much better). I have gotten a lot of compliments on my skin I thought before it was pretty dull now it has a bit more of a glow of course after the redness and peeling goes away right after the Im done.

Here is the description of what I get:
Vibrant Glow

Glycolic Acid Peel
This is an excellent maintenance treatment to diminish the ravaging effects of time and to enhance the skinâ€s overall appearance. This treatment is designed to loosen debris from the skin, leaving a clean, fresh look. It is available in many strengths and a series is recommended. Our staff will recommend the best option for your skin type and conditions.

Vibradermabrasion
Your skin will sparkle after this progressive resurfacing procedure. Vibradermabrasion has been shown in a number of studies to improve the appearance of sun damaged skin and removes the top layer of the skin, leaving it supple and vibrant. It is an excellent treatment for reducing sun damage, age spots, fine lines, acne scarring and pigmentation problems. Vibradermabrasion is also a great preparatory procedure to help maximize the benefits of laser treatments.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
