Last week I went to Numi Beauty + Laser at 10025 Hurontario st in Brampton for some serious pampering. I had four separate treatments done in the course of two hours and a spray tan to top it all off. Let me walk you through it.
After chatting with the ladies up front they took me to a cozy little room and I was like, what is going to happen to me in here?
Just relax and get comfortable you are in for a treat…ment or two.
We began with the hydrafacial. This is before all my makeup was lubed and sucked off. You can go with full makeup no problem. #lazy
The HydraFacial MD is like super advanced medical technology which is specially designed by engineers and techies to reduce sun damage, wrinkles, oily skin, rosacea and blemishes with four steps that include cleansing, exfoliation, acid peel, extractions, hydration, lymphatic drainage, red and blue light therapy. Monette, the attendant, used the machine in combination with a vitamin-enriched serum which had an exfoliate that tingled and supposedly was infused with antioxidants that are formulated to leave your skin looking and feeling younger.
They put your hair in a towel wrap and you can take avant garde videos of yourself for your instagram like I did. I felt very 80’s arrogant chic. I like the moving art videos to change it up when I can.
My face was hydrated and vacuumed over and over again. Then I was massaged into blissdom, and it felt great. HydraFacial hydrates and rejuvenates your skin. It scrubs off a layer of skin (dead skin) and leaves you shining, glowing, youthful and happy. You gotta try it. I’ve done it once before when I was 27 yrs old, and same thing. It’s NOT a one-time treatment but rather is something that you should be doing for yourself and your skin once a month and if you have acne, scarring, hyper pigmentation, sun damage, Rosacea, oily skin, wrinkles then you should visit once every two weeks.
Feeling it! Monette is an excellent esthetician we got along great. I giggled a lot because I have a hyper-sensitive ticklish zone all over my neck. She was patient and we got through it; I was eventually able to relax and enjoy this truly refreshing experience.
My skin is red because this is halfway through. I was smiling the whole way because I felt so good. No shame. Enjoyin’ that! BTW if you go to NUMI be sure to mention my name, wink wink.
Text war with mom. Not enjoying that. Multi-tasking away though.
I got over it though. I look pretty relaxed.
This is what they used on my face.
All makeup is gone. Face is shining.
You got me believing.
Then I got ready for the collagen booth. That’s what its called. Collagen is the main constituent of your skin, eyes, liver and kidneys and this treatment helps replenish depleted collagen supplies; it helps people regain vibrant, healthier and younger looking skin.
You can watch this video from inside of what it’s like. It’s kind of a combination light box work-out closet that tones your body. Incredible. You have to try it to feel it and experience the effects yourself. I loved it. It’s like standing in a suntan-workout booth – you hold onto these bars while being blasted with the light all around you.
You feel vibrations through your whole body like your fat is being sanded/jiggled off and your core feels tightened, your arms, butt, all your trouble areas get majorly vibrated. I want to go again.
This is what you stand on in the collagen booth. It teeter-totters back and forth at a high intensity.
And now the lights are on. This is before I dropped my robe. The only reason why we can’t post the video is because of a few nude scenes starring yours truly. Numi have seen everything so you really are at ease there when you’re in your birthday suit just saying.
I kept my undies on. This was shaking like crazy when I took this.
Requisite art shot.
You would explode if I told you how much that bottle of Kardashian Glow is worth. Okay on to the next treatment, it’s my legs!
Soprano Laser Hair Removal is for men and women of all skin types and has been proven as a safe and permanent solution for painless hair removal on areas of your face, arms, legs, bikini lines, back, chest and hairlines. I got my legs done..
Lube me up yo.
Lets do this.
Think of all the money I am going to save in razor blades now.
Be strong Raymbo.
State of the art technology!
This part feels really good and soothing.
I look awesome.
Onto the next treatment. Laser Spider Vein Removal and hunting for said spider vessels. It was hard for them!
I’m just that perfect. My legs are flawless – hate to break it to ya ladies.
Oh oh .. look here.. they might have finally found something, oh let’s get it.
Then they wanted to do my nose but I was like lets not. It would have made it super red and my eyes would’ve watered nah I am cool lets pass on that one hehehe.
Next treatment: PhotoFacial on my neck.
This is apparently what Sharon Stone has done to maintain her youthful appearance, and she looks awesome. The Soprano Skin Tightening machine executes a mini laser treatment designed to constrict and rebind loose, wrinkled skin anywhere on the body and face. I had a choice to tone flabby skin on my face, thighs, tummy or under my arms. We chose my neck.
I’m real happy all around with the treatments I had at Numi. We had a little love fest @Numi10 on Twitter and this is Jennifer fyi she’s great! Also, NUMI means New ME. Cute.
Look at this technical display panel showing wavelength and buzz tech – all this science is applied to our appearance .. Ladies
Lubing up my neck.
Waiting patiently for the beauty science experiment to begin.
And no it doesn’t hurt. All that much. Just a bit of a zap you can deal.
I was kind of fantasizing about having Kylie Jenner lips but a smooth neck is just as nice.
Spider vessels attack time. This hurt even less. I was scared.
Jennifer was like okay lets do your spider VEIN. Singular. We laughed. But then in this new room and lighting they noticed some other areas to poke me with. Lol beauty industry people gotta love them.
Cozy bed too. Very soft. I reviewed Numi on Yelp and made mention of the beds check it out.
I didn’t even flinch.
Pretty comfortable there. Quite.
Oh lucky day they found some more.
Well I am happy to help you gals out here lol #guineapig.
Raymi settings. No clue what that means. It must be good things.
Spray tan time.
Cover that precious hair.
Stickies for your feet so you don’t have orange soles for the week.
When it was done. My face is shiny and rejuvenated and now going to be an oompa loompa for good measure I love being tan. Matching my lighter makeup has been a little interesting for the last week, though haha.
Letting it all hang out at the bar where you can also hang out and sip a protein smoothie, herbal tea or spa water and chat about your health and beauty goals.
Great space, great place. You’re awesome Numi thanks for everything! Sincerely. I am still nicely tan and it’s Monday 5 days later.
Visit Numi on Facebook. Be sure to tell them you saw my post if you visit!
Then had some chicken at Nando’s!
