BEAUTY: My First Laser Treatment

This post was sponsored by LUTRONIC . All thoughts shared are my own.

One week ago I had my very first laser treatment, c/o LUTRONIC! 

Now that we have officially entered SPRING 2019, I jumped at the opportunity to treat some discoloration/pigmentation on my back, caused by a breakout a few years ago.

Lutronic Global and Renowned Dermatologist Dr. Gabriel offered me the LaseMD Experience - Its latest innovation allows physicians to offer non-ablative skin resurfacing, regardless of skin type or age with no downtime.It works by creating microchannels with minimal disruption to the stratum cornium while leaving bridges of untouched tissue for improved permeability, fast healing and reduced downtimes.

The LaseMD experience included: 
Numbing cream
Laser treatment
Serum ampoule to take home – composed of nano liposome technology, no artificial chemicals, no artificial fragrance, preservative free
Calming LaseMD Bio Cellulose Cream Mask – The specially formulated two-layer mask helps to cool and calm the skin.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience Babes! IUpon arrival I was greeted by a red carpet entrance, hors d'oeuvres, and bottomless mimosas 😍I also had an opportunity to chat with the staff, discuss what I hoped the treatment would accomplish, and to ask a number of questions. Before receiving the treatment, numbing cream was applied to my back, about 15 minutes was allotted to make sure that the medication took effect. I don't know why, but in my head, I imagined that the laser would be applied from a distance, like over head-LOL! In actuality, it was applied directly to my skin with a small wand. It felt very warm, almost like a semi-hot iron. There was no pain, only a warm sensation. The entire treatment took less than 30 minutes. After my treatment ended, I was able to get dressed with ease and to leave. Later in the evening, I could feel the numbing treatment wearing off. However, I did not have any pain. I simply felt a warm sensation. 
Note: To truly treat pigmentation, 2-3 treatments are encouraged.
