The Clinica Consultation
The Clinica offers an assortment of beauty treatments and services to have you looking and feeling your best. Before getting started, they offer a consultation to customize a treatment plan for your skins specific needs. As we know, there is no one size fits all solution for skincare so I loved the idea of having someone attentively listen and address all of my concerns with the most impactful treatment plan.
My appointment started with a consultation that included me speaking about my concerns and then having my face scanned via a VISIA skin analysis. This machine may seem a little intimidating at first as it really does a deep dive into your skin conditions and uses UV photography to capture everything going on above and beneath the surface. The technology then provides an assessment of your skin that covers wrinkles, spots, texture, pores, UV spots, brown spots, red areas and porphyrins (bacteria).
Then based on this assessment you receive recommendation’s on how to improve the areas of the most concern with targeted treatments. While it may be a little scary at first to realize how much damage the sun has caused, knowledge is power! So I’m excited to see what my VISIA results will be upon completion of my treatment plan. We ended the consultation with my recommendation being the Miracle Cocktail and the SkinGlow treatment.
For today, I decided to try the Miracle Cocktail, which is a medical grade ‘Super Facial’ that utilizes microneedling and a personalized serum blend targeting my specific needs. The first step was applying a numbing cream on my face for 15 minutes and prepping an anti-aging blend to use with the microneedling.
The microneedling itself took about 30-40 minutes and was painless. It just felt like a bit of vibration on the skin and I actually really enjoyed the process. The microneedling device creates tiny microscopic openings in the skin that allow up to 300% more product absorption, while also activating the growth of new, healthy skin tissue. This is a great way to regenerate the skin and boost collagen production for a youthful, glowing appearance. My face was red after the session but by the next morning it was almost back to normal.
A couple of days after the session I experienced a bit of dryness but nothing a good hyaluronic acid serum and moisturizes couldn’t resolve. It has now been a week since the treatment and my skin is as smooth as a babies, more plump and glowing. It’s safe to say that I am obsessed and will be going back for two more sessions and a SkinGlow treatment in the coming months. (Check back here in 3 months for my before and after photos).
The Clinica has a wide range of services for all of your skins needs. From Botox and fillers to Golden PRP (vampire facial), Power Peels, HydraGlow facials, Ultherapy and many more. I would recommend calling to book a consultation to see exactly how they can help you achieve your best skin and appearance.
They are also currently offering an amazing promotion that offers 50% off your first treatment! While I believe skincare to be a well-worth it investment, this promotion will allow you to try it out first hand in a wallet-friendly way.
