Now that Shea and I are in our 30’s, we’ve really started to care about our skin. It’s crazy the changes you see going from your 20’s to 30’s. Up until I turned 30 a few months ago, I never washed my face besides when I was in the shower. I know, a little weird, but I never grew up that way! My mom didn’t and we just aren’t big product people! But no lie, when I turned 30 I recieved the beautiful gift of adult acne. So much fun!!! I immediately changed my skincare routine because I could not handle it. It’s crazy how insecure it can make you feel!

When Illuminate contacted us and wanted to collaborate, I was SO EXCITED! I’d never had a facial, chemical peel, nothing, so I was elated to go have a treatment done on my skin. Especially since I’d been feeling down about the way my skin looked.

I chose to do the Hydrafacial and Shea had the IPL + Color Correction treatment. They have so many different treatments for your face and body, as well as a wellness menu which includes Vitamin IV Therapy and Vitamin Injections.

The spa is beautiful, clean and the employees were very helpful and answered any questions we had about our skin. They took us back and we went into a room and put our faces inside this machine. It took pictures of our skin and we could see all our pores and everything beneath our layers of skin. It was so cool to see the areas where we needed some extra care to our skin.

That’s frightening looking šŸ˜‰

They took us back to the rooms and started on our treatments. The Hydra facial was so amazing. They literally sucked out all the nasty dirt under my skin!Ā The HydraFacial is great for all skin types. Itā€™sĀ not only highly effective at improving overall skin health, but also excellent for remedying fine lines and wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, elasticity and more! The treatment uses a multiple-stepĀ process by using Vortex-FusionĀ®.

Shea decided to go with the IPL + Color Treatment. She has a tiny bit of roccacia so she opted for this treatment.Ā Intense Pulse Light (IPL) works by utilizing a high power flash lamp to deliver intense visible broad-spectrum light to heat and destroy pigmented cells. This photo rejuvenation treatment increases collagen and cell turnover to improve skin tone and texture. IPL is ideal for treating sun damage, freckles, broken blood vessels, acne scarring and pigmented lesions.

After our treatments our skin was glowing! Literally! We loved giving our skin the care that it needed and we will definitely be going back!

Illuminate does offer a monthly membership fee for only $85! That is actually such a great price and it includes Hydrafacial, IPL, Peels, Teen Acne Treatment, Vitamin IV Therapy or you have the option to bank your monthly fee to save up for a more expensive treatment or product.

If you live in Las Vegas or the LA area, you need to visit Illuminate. It was such a great experience for us both.
