My 2nd treatment session at EF Medispa | LED Light & Benefit Peel

Hey guys!

So I’ve now had my second treatment session at EF Medispa which involved some different treatments this time compared to what I had in my first session. You can read about how that went on my first post –Β How did my 1st session at EF Medispa go?

So lets talk about how it went…

The days leading up it this time, I was pretty excited! I was told at the end of my last appointment that I would most likely be having a peel done – I’d heard that these peels can have some really amazing results. I also had more of an idea of what to expect after last time.

Luckily my appointment was a bit later this time, so I was able to wake up at 7:15 – giving myself a bit more of a lie in! We left just after 8am and again, I used this as an excellent opportunity to catch on some sleep as my Dad drove there πŸ˜€ I’m pretty grateful that I can sleep during car journeys! Haha. We arrived about 45 minutes early, so we drove around exploring London for a bit. We eventually parked up (again, the prices for parking in these areas are crazy!) and walked up to EF Medispa.

I was greeted by some lovely people at the reception, and was asked to take a seat while waiting for the Therapist to be ready – I was a little early, but hey, better to be early than late, right?! I actually started to feel quite nervous at this point surprisingly – I think I was just feeling anxious with waiting around and not particularly knowing what to expect, as this is still all new to me!

  • Before the treatment

I had a different lady this time for my treatment – her name was Juta. After sitting comfortably waiting for my appointment, Juta came up and greeted me upstairs. She took me down to one of the treatment rooms, and explained to me what would be happening in this appointment. Juta came across so friendly, and so relaxing – it took away my nerves instantly! I knew I was in capable hands.

She did ask me a few questions about how my skin reacted with the treatment I had in the last session, which as I said in my previous post (which you can read here), I was extremely happy to see some results already! I also mentioned that I noticed my skin was a little drier than usual to begin with, but nothing I couldn’t easily fix with the Hydrating Serum I bought.

  • During the treatment

After laying down and getting comfy on the chair, the first thing that Juta did was cleanse my face. When they cleanse your face to be ready for your treatment, they use a few different products to ensure your skin is clean and will achieve the best results with your treatment. It was pretty relaxing, and one of the products she used smelt sooo nice! After this was finished we moved onto the first part, which was the LED light.

The LED light is very relaxing! I had this in my first session, so I knew what to expect here. Juta put some eye protectors on me and moved the machine so it was placed over my head, and switched it on. There isn’t much to this treatment, I just had to lay there until it was finished – it was a very nice warm feeling on my face! While waiting for this to finish, Juta kindly gave me a hand massage and moisturised my hands and arms so they felt sooo soft afterwards! I definitely almost fell asleep this time, haha.

After this was finished, she then prepared my skin to be ready for the peel. She cleansed it with a few products, and one of them she did warn me may sting a little (which it did!) and could cause my skin to be a little dry for the next few day. Then she applied the Benefit Peel to my face. This peel is good for me because it is great for rosacea and acne prone skin – it helps stimulate the collagen production, which is what I want! But also without making me peel a lot. While she was applying the peel to my face she said there could be a bit of a tingling sensation and it could feel a little warm but it shouldn’t last long.

  • After the treatment

After the peel was applied, I did have a little bit of a tingling sensation but it didn’t last too long. My skin obviously looked pretty shiny with having the peel on still, and a little red in places but it wasn’t too bad. I was told I had to leave the peel on for 6 hours.. Yes that’s right – 6 hours! My skin would also be more sensitive to direct sunlight over the next few days so I should make sure I am using my sunscreen and try to avoid direct sunlight where possible. Also, I should avoid using any more harsh products such as my exfoliating cleanser, and the define treatment for 4-5 days. I was also warned that my skin may peel – but this is actually is a good thing!

So, I washed the peel off 6 hours later and then it was time to wait and let it work its magic! By the way – my skin felt incredibly smooth afterwards!

As the days went on after my peel, I could slowly notice the redness reducing – it was so nice waking up in the morning and looking at my skin and thinking ‘wow, look at my skin!’ I did notice a tiny bit of peeling on my nose, but there wasn’t anything major or really noticeable. Β My skin did go quite dry but it was quite easily fixed by using the Cosmedix Rescue+ to moisturise. 2 weeks after my appointment, my skin was feeling and looking pretty good! There is still some redness, as this is something that will take time to get to where I want it to be, but I am pretty impressed with the progress so far – I can’t wait to see how it turns out in the end!

Keep an eye out for my post where I will be showing you these 4 products that I was recommended to be using – an exfoliating cleanser for the morning, a gentle cleanser for the evening, a hydrating serum and a define treatment – and letting you know what I think!

  4. I have always wondered how these kinds of treatments worked. My skin is quite sensitive so I have never been brave enough to actually look into a kind of LED treatment but they do seem to give amazing results so quickly. I will have to look into it a little x

    1. Hope I could help a little bit! Yeah, the results vary per person, seems I have been one of the lucky ones and it is working which is so exciting! It does take a bit of time to see the results though, so do have to be patient πŸ™‚ x

    1. Yeah, I thought it’d be on for like 10 minutes – and then she told me that I had to keep it on for 6 hours, I was like what?! Luckily I couldn’t really notice it so it wasn’t too bad. Thank you! Hopefully it just keeps getting better πŸ™‚ x

  5. Hi, it sounds like you had a thourogh treatment and the lady doing it was very good. It must have been tough keeping it on for 6 hours. I hope you get positive results.

    1. Yeah this was definitely more of a pampering session compared to my last one haha. Aw thank you, I’m hoping to try and include some photos of the results in the future posts too so you guys can see the difference too! X

    1. Haha, I don’t blame you! I hadn’t either before this all started, definitely worth having a look at all the different options there are if you are interested! X

  7. This was very interesting to read a story I have never heard of this treatment before! It sounds quite long winded but very relaxing. I definitely need to exfoliate more!

    1. I don’t think many people have – I definitely hadn’t heard of it before until my Dad told me about it! It is something that will take some time to get the results I’d like, but it’s well worth it if I can already see some improvements and I’ve only had a few sessions so far – can’t wait to see how things are at the end! X

    1. You aren’t the only one, don’t worry! I hadn’t heard of this stuff before either, so it’s all completely new and I’m learning as we go haha. That’s what I’m going to try and do in my next few posts! I’ve been just trying to build my confidence up to do it first, and see if people like these posts but I’ll definitely try next. I have some photos from before my treatment started so can compare to them! X

    1. Thank you, fingers crossed! I’m glad you found it interesting – I’ll be writing about how my other sessions go, and hopefully showing some pictures so you guys can see the results x

  8. It sounds like this is a wonderful place to get skin treatments! I’ve never had a peel before but it sounds like it would make a huge difference for me! My skin gets so dull in winter especially. I’m looking forward to hearing how you do over the next few days!

    1. It is! The people are so lovely too! I’d never had one before, and I’m really pleased with the results! Definitely worth checking it out and just seeing what the different peels there are as I’m sure you could find one that would do what you need! Xx

  9. This sounds amazing, I’ve always wanted to splash out a bit of money on facial treatments but they always sound so intimidating. Loved this post because now at least I’ll know what to expect when I get one done haha!

    1. I know what you mean, I was pretty nervous about it but the people have been so lovely to me! Definitely took the nerves away, and made it more relaxing. I’m glad I could help! πŸ™‚ x

    1. It was so lovely! Aw thank you, I hope you enjoy reading what I write! πŸ˜€ I should be able to post about how my 3rd session went soon πŸ™‚ xx

    1. Yay! I’m glad I could help, I haven’t really seen many posts about these sort of treatments around so I thought it’d be helpful to write about for others to read and share my experience πŸ™‚ x

    1. It was! Definitely recommend it, I was pretty nervous at first as I’m not very confident with my skin without make-up on but there was nothing to worry about – made me feel so comfortable and now my skin is looking better than ever, and will keep improving (fingers crossed)! X

    1. Most definitely, sometimes you do need this! Especially compared to when I have IPL, which you can read about in my other post haha. X
