Facial love (and dermaplaning) at Minnetonka LifeSpa.

lifespa logoI love my facials. I just might be a wee bit picky as to who actually gets to touch my face. But, I do have a few lovely ladies I trust to beautify my skin.

One of them is Angie at Minnetonka LifeSpa at Lifetime Fitness. If you’ve never been to this spa, you are missing out. It’s truly a hidden gem. You don’t have to be a member of Lifetime to have spa services. In fact, all non-members are granted full access to the upscale fitness center (including childcare) when you treat yourself to a salon or spa service. Workout, get a facial, sit in the eucalyptus steam room and enjoy your “me time”.

I call upon Angie when I feel my skin is in need some serious TLC. This time I needed some major exfoliating, and by that I mean “peel my face off”. She suggested we do dermaplaning. I had never tried it, so of course I was game.

Never heard of dermaplaning? It’s a procedure where the esthetician uses a special blade to gently scrape the skin with feathering strokes. The process doesn’t take very long, but it’s effective at exfoliating the surface of the skin. Not only will your skin be super “baby bottom” smooth, but you will GLOW. It’s like having brand new skin. We did a little peel action along with the dermaplaning and completed my treatment with some super hydration. The final product she applied to my skin was Rhonda Allison Drop of Essence Hydration Drops, which is a blend of Omega 6 oil, Vitamin E and essential oils of Geranium and Lavender. So lovely.

As you can see, my face is pink and blotchy. My skin is fairly sensitive to peels (and, this picture was taken immediately after my peel). It just means my skin is going to be radiant and glowing very soon! The pinkness will be gone within the hour.

Now I just need to stop touching my face. I just can’t believe how it feels!

Need some skin TLC? You need some facial love from Angie at the Minnetonka LifeSpa at Lifetime Fitness. Your skin will thank you!
