There is nothing I love more than a good spa treatment. Like most ladies I expect, I’m a girl who loves to be pampered. But since having my babies my spa afternoons are very few and far between. So when I was asked to review a new Microdermabrasion Treatment with the team at Mia Bella Kawana, I jumped at the chance! It could not have been better timing as since winter has arrived my poor old skin has been crying out for some special love and attention.
I excitedly arrived at Mia Bella at Kawana Waters Shopping Centre and was instantly surrounded by a feeling of relaxation by the beautiful atmosphere. The chic decor and shelves filled beautiful products instantly set the scene that you are in for a little bit of luxury. After taking a seat I was greeted by Kerry the owner of the salon who ran me through the Microdermabrasion procedure and explained in detail how it would feel and the amazing benefits my skin was about to receive.
The aim of the Microdermabrasion treatment is to stimulate new cell growth, remove old dead skin cells and unclog pores – I was sold – what was not to love about all of that?
To start with Kerry used some beautiful Dermalogica cleansers to clean and prep my skin. Then gave my skin a light exfoliate and steam to open up my pores, i loved this part as it was a very lovely detoxifying feeling. From there we moved onto the Microdermabrasion treatment which felt very different from what I imagined, the machine Kerry used to do the treatment felt like it was lightly sucking my skin, it felt like hundreds and hundreds of little suction kisses doing the good work to kiss my face clean! She worked on my face, neck and décolletage with the microdermabrasion machine and then removed the attachment head and swapped it for a softer attachment that felt more like fairy suction kisses to do the delicate areas around my eyes etc.
The treatment ended with a gorgeous mask and a relaxing head massage that was to die for. After approximately 45 minutes my treatment was finished. I felt like a brand new Toyota … “OH WHAT A FEELING”
Kerry explained to me that after the treatment it is crucial to use sun protection and introduced me to the Dermalogica range which boasts a 50+SPF factor in their moisturizers which is ideal after you have had an intensive exfoliation treatment as after microdermabrasion your skin is almost like baby skin and very delicate to the sun’s rays.
Leaving the salon armed with beautiful products and fresh new skin I glided home, counting down the days until my next treatment.
So to sum it up easily for you at home I’ve broken it done in 3 categories ; quality, look and price
Quality: I rated 5/5 Tinkles ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Mia Bella use the most beautiful products and you can feel the quality with each product used. Kerry my therapist was nothing short of amazing and the technology used was very impressive.
Look: I rated 5/5 Tinkles ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I had the flu the week after this treatment and my skin despite being rubbed constantly with tissues looked radiant and fresh. Amazing how just 1 treatment can make such a big difference.
Price: I rated 4/5 Tinkles ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Let’s face it being a female isn’t exactly cheap!
$149 is not the cheapest treatment around but in comparison to paying a similar amount for a relaxing facial that will bring limited long term benefits this is a treatment that actually works and will leave your skin glowing long term.
