A mantra that I live by is your beauty is my life. So the one thing I wanted to share about today, why it’s such a big day, is that it’s actually the first time that I’ve, sorry, I’ve ever left the house with no makeup on. Anybody who has struggled with, I don’t even, I hate to even say the word. Guys, acne, knows that it’s a process. And sometimes days are better than others. Sometimes weeks are better than others or months even. That’s why I feel like I’m finally ready to kind of take that step to have a procedure. My name is Lindsay and I am getting microneedled. The reason that mirconeedling is such a big hit on the market today is because its a noninvasive instant gratification within one week. For the last 20 years I’ve been a skin expert and it started way back when I was just a child in Romania Bucharest. My mother, she also is a cosmetologist and a medical esthetician, so I pretty much was brought up in that industry from day one. I was made to do this. It makes me so proud to be able to change the way clients look at themselves and they’re happy about their own skin. My name is Kát Rudu and I’m a skin expert. And what’s so great that if you have damaged skin by sun damage, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks. It’s an instant brightness to the skin and tightening the pores. So there’s different types of needle sizes. Best for over the counter is to purchase a 0.5, and anything over that is more for clinical use. You cannot cause scar tissue if you’re using an over the counter needle size. You know, what I’ve been doing with my skin since it’s gotten bad is kind of trying
different products. Retinoids, Vitamin C, things that brighten, things that work on the fine lines. But the problem is that it always has been kind of like, I take care of the fine lines but then my skin would break out. My skin is very, very sensitive. It’s combination, it’s dry, it’s finicky. And I think actually that is the thing that scares me most about getting micro-needling. Is that I don’t know what it’s gonna look like after. And I mean that I’m actually worried that it’s gonna be worse. And that’s my biggest fear. I want to get your skin looking perfect so,
-Okay. so I’m just going to kind of come in and do my magic. Okay. I cleanse the skin and then I disinfect the skin. And after numbing we begin the treatment. Micro-needling creates microscopic punctures into the skin. Okay, so now let’s sit up,
-Okay. and here you go. So you’re a little pink. It’s been three days since I did the micro-needling. Since the treatment I’ve noticed that my makeup goes on significantly smoother. The texture of my skin is better. It’s just smoother and brighter overall. I’m really happy that I went and saw Kát and that she could give me very specific directions on how to deal with my skin, which is sensitive and problematic. And so now I feel much more comfortable working with the micro-needling roller at home. Thank you guys so much for watching. For more videos on Refinery29, click here. And to subscribe here.
