Our Author goes on a quest for the secret to youthful skin.
A few weeks later, Saundra Grillo, founder and CEO of Skin Rejuvencation Center & Spa in Danvers, told me about her long career as an esthetician, which as included treating George Harrison and being among the first in the country to perform procedures like microdermabrasion and microneedling.
For two hours, Saundra lavished my skin with a variety of treatments that included microdermabrasion, a cooling seaweed mast, and ‘power washing’ my face with a spatula-like took. But perhaps the most incredible procedure was facial recontouring using a machine called the Apollo, which uses a Tri Polar RF, or radio frequency, tool that massages and heats the facial tissue to smooth and tighten the skin. Saundra warned me that my face would look red and feel sunbirned afterwards, and it did; the tool actually warmed my skin to 41 degrees Celsius (about 106 degrees Fahrenheit). But I was stunned when she help up a mirror halfway through the procedure to show me the difference between one side of my face and the other. The skin around my jawline on the side she had finished looked visibly tighter and more toned.
Saundra send me home with a bag full of cleansers, serums, lotions and other goodies to use in the das following my procedure.
“In a week, your skin will look amazing,’ she promised.
And it certainly did.
