I’ve been preaching this philosophy since I started my career as a celebrity makeup artist 10 years ago. And I practice what I preach. Like many of us out there, my mission to keep my skin looking flawless is an endless work in progress. I sometimes feel like Indiana Jones on an archaeological adventure searching for the holy grail of treatments and skincare that will give me the flawless skin I so desire.
And then, Dr. Motykie came into my life and my search was over. We met on the Marie Osmond Talk Show where I am currently the lead makeup artist. His body of work and his refreshingly healthy approach to skincare and plastic surgery blew me away. I was so impressed and learned so much from his segments that when his staff members mentioned that they were looking for someone to blog about his Med Spa in West Hollywood I naturally jumped at the opportunity.
My first visit to the spa was an incredible experience. I am a woman of color and I have often been apprehensive about receiving professional facials because I’ve had experiences at other medical spas where the staff was not experienced in dealing with the unique issues that are common in darker skin with disastrous results. But when I stepped foot inside of the Motykie Med Spa, I was immediately struck by the warmth and professionalism of the staff.
I was greeted by the lovely Allison in reception and then introduced to a medical aesthetician named Josh Ross. Josh was a Godsend who, by the way, I’m completely convinced he is mind reader. He prescribed the Hydra-Facial for me. This highly effective, state-of-art serum infused microdermabrasion procedure utilizes a combination of cleansing, extraction, exfoliation, hydration and antioxidant protection all at once.
My primary skin concerns have always been hyper pigmentation, uneven skin and acne. The results from this facial addressed all of my issues with instantly gratifying results. The day of the treatment my skin was smoother and cleaner than it had ever felt. I could hardly believe my eyes when I looked in the mirror and saw the noticeable reduction of my hyper pigmentation from recent breakouts. I felt like I’d struck gold! If that wasn’t enough proof of the amazing results, I started out with two larger nodule breakouts on my cheeks bones and the next day they were flat and healed. It’s been a week since my facial and my skin still looks radiant and feels incredibly smooth.
So if you were to ask me, “would I recommend the Hydra-Facial?” The answer is: YES! I’m thrilled with my results and eager to try the other amazing treatments and procedures the spa has to offer! Run; don’t walk, to the Motykie Med Spa where you are in the capable hands of the very best skincare and medical professions who are waiting to give you the flawless skin you’ve always dreamed about!
