Love the Skin You’re in
Micro-Needling at FLX Salon & Spa

My mother used to tell me that my chicken pox scars gave me character. But those little scars were no friend of mine. I’ve tried it all – oils, masks, serums, scrubs. There’s no question that I’m a skincare devotee on a mission to have a flawless, younger complexion with the perfect natural glow. I know what you’re thinking…this sounds like a lot of work. But thanks to FLX Salon & Spa the impossible is possible and I don’t even have to leave my home.
Over the past few years, micro-needling has become one of the most sought-after minimally-invasive procedures. Micro-needling has been shown to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, age-spots, sun spots, and stretch marks with as few as two treatments.
I had my initial consultation in the Salon Treatment Room with Master Esthetician Maria Lekkakos. Maria put my mind at ease by answering all my questions: Does it hurt? What’s the recovery process like? How often do I need to come back?
I was convinced. A week later I was back in the Treatment Room having my face prepped for my first-ever micro-needling experience. The level of discomfort was nowhere near as bad as I had anticipated. Micro-needling creates a natural healing cascade that produces new collagen and elastin resulting in firmer, healthier skin.
For the next 24-hours after the treatment, I had to avoid all products (including makeup) and stay out of the sun. My skin was tight and a little red – as if I had gotten a sun burn the day before – but by the next morning I saw results. Unlike Botox and injectable fillers, which require regular maintenance, micro-needling literally triggers the collagen-producing cells in your body to go into overdrive and create permanent new skin.
Thanks to micro-needling, I’ve never looked better and I truly love the skin I’m in. Goodbye chicken pox scars…you will not be missed.
