Introlift Girls Night

What’s better than a girls night out? A girls night out getting pampered at Introlift Medspa. As many of you may know, I love my natural cosmetics and beauty treatments, in one of my past posts, I go into detail about my filler and all of the filler work I have had done. And today I want to share one of my new favorite medical spas.

I recently had an Aqua facial at Introlift, and can easily say it was the best facials I’ve ever received. From the service, environment, esthetician and my glowing skin after, it was top quality. So when Introlift hired on Plastics Media to coordinate an Influencer Girls Night, I was all for it!

A night full of delicious food, drinks, mini treatments and goodie bags!

I decided to try the Exilis skin tightening for my arms, an area that I always struggle with at the gym. It was quick and painless and I love all of the different treatments and technology they offer.

What is the Aqua Facial?

“This treatment is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. Start your skin maintenance program now with the RF Aqua Face Lift treatment to slow down your skin’s aging process and delay the need for invasive procedures.”

Cannabis For Your Face?!

Nowadays everything seems to be CBD! And would have ever guessed cannabis would have such amazing health benefits for your skin also! I first heard about a cannabis facial from the lovely ladies at Clean Start in Miami where I came across Lex, the esthetician, who had been showing her amazing before and after photos from the CBD facial. My skin is mostly hormonal, meaning every few weeks I’ll tend to get a bit of a breakout, which will then go away once my hormones are back to normal. It just so happened I was going through this phase when I went in to see Lex, who gave me this CBD facial and let’s just say, I was glowing!

The whole experience was luxurious, relaxing and I felt like my skin was getting so many amazing benefits from the different treatments Lex did. Lex used a fresh batch of natural, vegan and organic products during my facial which had a combined 2,000mg of CBD. CBD is used in skincare to help rebalance your skin and has been known to help those with rosacea, eczema and hormonal acne. During my facial, I had everything from extractions, exfoliating mask, moisturizing mask, light therapy, and a facial massage. And once the facial was over I felt in such a state of relaxation and I could tell my skin was glowing from the inside out.

Sidenote: the CBD does not affect your physical or mental state in any way whatsoever.

 

Shine On Baby

Can we take a moment to appreciate all of the shine going on in this photo. First off, I must say this dress is AMAZING quality and I will for sure be making this a new go-to piece. And paired with these cute, but glitzy, sandals, I couldn’t sparkle more. This was one of the most simple pieces to dress up and I am totally in love with this look. All pieces are linked at the bottom of this post.Facetune_22-09-2019-15-31-33IMG_2601IMG_2602IMG_2617

My Transformation

Transformations physically, mentally and most importantly… for this blog.

 

It’s been quite a hot minute since I’ve dabbled in the blogging world, but I am making a conscious effort to start it back up, and this time with a lot more thought and meaning behind each post. Bye to the days of meaningless outfit posts and hello to what really goes on in this interesting world I live in. Of course, I may throw in a few outfits that I can’t help but share. But I’ve always had a passion for writing and I love being able to put some more personality into my blogging.

Which leads me into my first post, and one that I never imagined I would be making. As you may know, I’ve lived in Miami for about 3 years now and I would not want to live anywhere else. But of course, living in Miami, it’s easy to get drawn into the unrealistic beauty standards. I’ve never had any major insecurities about my looks or even had a thought cross my mind about plastic surgery or physical alterations of any sort. Perhaps a little tattoo or piercing, but I was even skeptical of those. Until… I ended up working for an extremely talented plastic surgeon here in Miami, Dr. Rian Maercks. How I ended up there is an interesting story in itself, but today I just want to share my transformation, because I think it’s pretty darn amazing.

Whenever we typically think of filler, we think of big duck lips and giant, overfilled chipmunk cheeks, which I personally do not find attractive. Quickly after spending a few weeks at this new job of mine, it was clear that what Dr. Rian A. Maercks was doing, with filler, was a completely different story. We would have gorgeous supermodels walk through our doors, looking perfect, and end up leaving even more perfect. He likes to use the phrase “unlocking your inner beauty” which is the perfect way to describe it.

(Sidenote: I feel compelled to say that I did not have any push or outside reasons for sharing this story, besides the fact that I think I look dope AF and find this sort of stuff interesting. k thanks.)

So let’s just go ahead and fast forward some months later, after 21 syringes/CC’s/ml’s of hyaluronic acid filler, in my face, later. Woahhhh 21! Yeah, it’s a lot of filler compared to pretty much everyone else in the world, but the magician, aka Dr. Maercks, has the most crazy, artistic and amazing technique, that requires a buttload more volume, to give you a very natural result. Okay, you can read about it here, because I just want to get to the fun part already, the before and afters!

All of these photos are completely unfiltered/unaltered in any way. In both before and after I am wearing no makeup, I am in the same room and taken with the same camera. And you’ll for sure notice my hormonal acne was cured, also thanks to Dr. Maercks and his acne protocol

So let’s do a kind of breakdown of sorts, although these numbers are estimates.

My eyes, nose, lips, and chin all have filler.

My eyes and temples have about 10CC’s of filler in total (5CCs each side) this removed my undereye bags, filled in the hollow of my temples, lifted my brows, lifted my cheeks, thinned the appearance of my face and took away from the heaviness of my cheeks.

 

My nose has around 5CCs of filler in total. He made my nose longer, to fit my face better, made it more straight, boosted out the base to give me more tip projection, and hide my nasal labial folds a little more. And he gave me a more pointed, lifted and overall cutest nose ever. (I’m totally obsessed with his liquid rhinoplasty’s, and am dying for more!)

 

My lips have about 4CCs in total. 2CCs were injected into the pink of my lips (per my request) for bigger, juicier lips and the other 2CCS were placed around the border of my lips and my cupids bow to blend it with the rest of my face.

 

My chin has about 2CCs of filler to boost out my chin and blend it with my lips and nose. This also disguised my little turkey gobbler a little more. (Also another thing I’m obsessed with.)

One common question is regarding pain and whether it hurts. First off, yes, there are needles being stuck into your face. But it’s honestly so painless, the only part that is a little more tender is the tip of the nose. Aside from that, your face actually gets super numb, it’s more of a weird feeling than pain. And recovery for me is very minimal, I do not swell that much and I hardly bruise, but others can have different experiences than mine of course. 

Now after seeing all of the volume that was put in my face, one would think it would be obvious. But some of my friends and family still say they can’t really notice a difference. And my dad was never able to tell, until this blog post of course.

So this concludes my first blog post of 2019, a little late, but I’ll do my best to share more.

The Mother/Daughter Duo

As most of you know, I’ve been working with my mother, Megan Duncanson, for this last year and I could not be happier! We both started a vegan purse line, Livin’ the MAD Life, in January of 2018, and I’ve recently begun to help manage her art company MADART Studios. It has been super exciting, and a lot of new stuff going on!

I wanted to share a little video with some random work chats with myself, Aroon Duncanson and my mom, Megan Duncanson. Enjoy!
