Sufficiently spoilt at Regenerer
From the moment I walked into Regenerer I felt comfortable, which is very important when you are getting injectables. The salon is clean, comfortable and stylish and is situated in the heart of Moorabbin.
I first met Nicky on a previous trip to Regenerer and automatically felt at ease in her presence. With over 20 years experience, Nicky was able to effortlessly explain the mechanics of dermal filler (lip injections on this occasion) and courteously answered my many questions. Sure, I was nervous as I hate needles, but Nicky made the experience a positive one and far less daunting than I anticipated.
The process began with some numbing cream on my lips, which took around 30 minutes. After that Nicky explained what she was doing step by step and stopped periodically to show me the results. As I naturally have a thin bottom lip, I surprised to see the fullness Nicky was able to achieve with 1 ml.
At the end if the procedure, Nicky went through the after care process explaining the benefits of Arnica, which was a godsend!
I experienced some minor swelling (which is normal) after the procedure for 1 - 2 days and diligently used the Arnica, which helped immensely. I was thrilled with the final result. Nicky's work was exemplary and her cheerful manner and professionalism made for a positive experience.
A few weeks later I returned to Regenerer to indulge in a Microdermabrasion and peel with the lovely Renee. It had been months since my last facial and my skin was crying out for a deep clean. Once again I felt right at home in the pristine salon. Renee started by explaining the procedure and analysing my skin, followed by a recommendation of future treatments/products that would meet my skin's needs.
After a Double cleanse and eye make up removal, Renee toned my skin in preparation for the exfoliation, which was a pumpkin bio ferment extract peel. The pumpkin has an enzymatic effect on the skin, and unlike other peels it was gentle on my skin and did not cause any peeling or flaking. Once the mask was applied, Renee indulged me with a relaxing massage.
To finish off the mask was removed and a customised serum, moisturiser & SPF was applied to my skin. By the end of the treatment my skin felt rejuvenated and looked brighter - it was exactly what my neglected skin needed. The level of service at Regenerer is unparalleled and both procedures left me sufficiently spoiled. Just what every girl wants!
I also have had the privelidge of visiting this salon on occasion, and I must agree with everything stated. The girls are wonderful, friendly and very professional.
The end results remarkable, I personally would not go elsewhere. Nicky is to me an artist, she has definitely the skill a d expertise in the area of injectables.
Thank you Regenerer.
