My Image Skincare Signature Face Lift at ASI Skin at Aesthetic Surgery Ireland & Giveaway!

One way to know if you're a scaredy cat is to be offered a facial peel and immediately wonder if you have a big enough hat at home in case you have to do a Samantha from Sex and the City.  I didn't know a huge amount about chemical peels when my friend Dr Caitriona Ryan of the ASI Skin at Aesthetic Surgery Ireland offered for me to come in for the Image Skincare Signature Face Lift a few weeks ago, and I went into research mode.  Something that would increase the turnover of cells to reveal a whole new younger looking me which I would really like to have as I'm 40 now and have 62% accepted that?   Em ok thanks very much!  By increasing cell turnover, new skin cells are brought to the surface.  Cells that don't know the life you've lead so far or the things you've been through.  They're young and innocent and are oblivious to the fact that you totally forgot to take your makeup off last Saturday night.  My friend Ellen raves about skin peels too and she looks like an absolute chung wan, so off I went to see what it was all about.

The day I went into the absolutely stunning Aesthetic Surgery Ireland clinic to get the treatment done, I was ready to say goodbye to the old cells and start afresh.  Sharon, the Nurse Manager who carried out the treatment, checked over my skin and explained what each step would do, what was involved and what I would feel.  I think she knew I was a big wimp to be honest but knowing what was happening helped loads.

After cleansing off my makeup and revealing just how blotchy my poor skin was, Sharon got cracking.  She wore gloves to protect her hands from the acids she was about to use on me and that's when I properly realised that this was going to be a completely different type of facial.  This was a results driven treatment, pure and simple.

The products were applied in four layers and the whole process took about 30 minutes.  Layer 1 was the peel - the Image Signature Facelift Solution.   As this layer was applied, I started to feel my face heating up.  The weirdo in me loved being able to feel that the products were actually doing something to my skin rather than just sitting on top of it.  The next layer was the Ageless Total Resurfacing Mask which cooled my face down a bit, and after that was applied, another layer of the Image Signature Facelift Solution was applied over that.   The last layer was the Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Mask which was the topping to the four layer treatment.  These were all removed and Sharon applied Hyaluronic Facial Enhancer along with the Vital-C Hydrating Anti-Aging Serum, followed by Vital C Hydrating Eye Recovery Gel.  If that wasn't enough, she applied a layer of Prevention & Hydrating moisturiser and the Ormedic Balancing Lip Enhancement Complex to finish it all up.

I touched my face the whole way home in the car lads, not going to lie.  My skin felt smooth, plump and I was ready to see how the next few days would go, seeing as I'd been layered with acids and enzymes galore.  I noticed a small bit of flaking either sides of my nose and on my forehead after the first couple of days, but armed with my little pack of Image skincare follow up products, they took care of that.  I remember looking in the mirror a few days after the treatment and genuinely thinking no other facial had made my skin look this good after the treatment.  I felt like my skin looked brighter, felt so smooth and soft and my skin looked really clear and refined.  Weeks after the treatment and I'm still delighted with the results and already have plans to go get another one.  My makeup sits so much better on my skin and listen, at 40 years of age, it's time to start taking my skincare to the next level!

Lads, I'm hooked!
