I always joked when I was younger that at 30yrs I would start getting Botox and at 50yrs I’d get a facelift. Ha, ha – the naivety of youth! It’s funny how scared we are of ageing, even when we are so young! Funnily enough, now that I’m early 30’s, I’m more comfortable in my skin than ever! In saying that, I still believe in being the best version of ‘you’ ….so that the time has come for me to start considering therapies. I thought it best (and far less painful) to start with the least intrusive options.
I recently visited my friends at Skin Rescue Centre in Double Bay to trial the SRS – Structural Remodelling Treatment. Let me start by saying I was sceptical. Very sceptical. Sarah Flood (who is amazing) is my therapist at Skin Rescue Centre and has been looking after my skin for a few years now… so it was at her recommendation that I gave SRS a go.
The Claims: This skin toning system is the first of its kind to offer revolutionary remodelling. It combines 5 scientifically proven technologies to tighten and reshape the face and neck area. Each treatment takes approximately 30 mins and is pain free.
- Promotes cell renewal
- Active neo-collagen production
- Relax dynamic lines
- Tighten the skin
- Restore muscle tone
The Reality: I went in with quite red sensitive skin that was a little worse for wear with this freezing Winter season – needless to say I was looking forward to the treatment. Your skin is first cleansed of all makeup and a cool gel is applied across each section of your face as your therapist progresses across your forehead, down your cheeks and to your chin and neck. There is a slight tingling sensation but nothing uncomfortable. The process takes about half an hour and it’s recommended you do a course of 2 per week for 5 weeks to achieve the full benefits. In saying that, one treatment is plenty if you are just after a lift and a glow for a special event.
The Results: Sarah passed me a mirror half way through to see the difference between the treated side of my face and the yet-to-be treated side… And the difference was pretty dramatic. I get the feeling she sensed my scepticism so this defiantly put my mind at ease.
After the treatment, my skin felt lifted, firm and moisturised. The texture and results improved over the next few days. All-in-all I’m a fan. No pain and delivering obvious results – how could I not be an enthusiast?! Basically, it works! It’s painless & pretty quick. Highly recommend!
