[BEAUTY]: Laser treatment & Facial at Mint Laser & Beauty

A few weeks ago, I popped into Mint Laser & Beauty Salon in Pretoria East for an under arm laser hair removal treatment and a divine Lamelle facial.

I was instantly impressed when I walked through the door and found a personalized sign welcoming me to the salon, I truly believe that small touches really make a big difference! I’ve visited the Mint Laser & Beauty salon before at their old premises but their new space is so gorgeous with it’s fabulous decor and luxurious equipment.

I’ve had laser treatment for my under arms before so I knew what to expect but because Mint always has the latest laser technology, I was impressed with how much quicker it was than I remembered. Plus, it was totally pain free!

Two zaps and it was all over!

After my quick and painless laser treatment, I was treated to a facial using Lamelle products. Lamelle is cruelty free and locally made, I’m so happy they’ve teamed up with Mint. During the facial, my therapists explained each step and what it would do for my skin. I explained that I have a hormonal breakout on my chin area and that my skin was dehydrated. She then worked the treatments for these issues into my facial.

I instantly recognised when she used the Lamelle Correctives 2 Capthepzyme home exfoliation system from the scent and the texture of the product! It’s such a great exfoliatin product that is so gentle yet effective on your skin.

During the facial, my therapist applied a purifying mask to my chin and nose area to help with my breakouts and then a hydrating mask to the rest of my face. A few days after the facial, I noticed that my breakouts were getting worse on my chin and that I had developed a rash on the area where the purifying mask was applied. I decided I would give my skin a few days to calm down before I would ask Mint if it was a normal reaction? Turns out, it was just my skin getting rid of all the toxins and my chin has cleared up – no need for me to even ask Mint! Impressed!

You’ll notice in the photos below that I still have my eye makeup on. Since I have such sensitive eyes, I always ask the therapists during facials to rather leave my eye area

The Lamelle facials range between R260.00-R340.00 (you can pop over to the website to see what they offer here)

The underarm laser hair removal treatment is R550.00 per session (to see the other treatments on offer click here)

Set in a tranquil environment where you can just take some time out for yourself, I highly recommend giving this salon a visit next time you’re looking to treat yourself!
