We were thrilled to welcome Laetitia Wajnapel, the founder of fashion and lifestyle site MademoiselleRobot.com, to our Kensington clinic for a Venus Freeze Facial.
Ranked as one of the UK’s most influential fashion blogs MademoiselleRobot.com has been featured in numerous UK and international publications including Vogue, Grazia, The Telegraph, The Times, ELLE Girl, The Independent as well as Company, Marie-Claire and Stylist.
Laetitia, a Parisian journalist now living in London, uses her Mademoiselle Robot site to showcase her sources of inspiration, blog about her personal style and to share her adventures.
As you can imagine, we were feeling a tad apprehensive when we heard Laetitia is “seriously opposed to anyone touching the skin on my face: it is super sensitive but aside from that, it isn’t really a “problem skin” so facials are sort of an alien concept to me.”
In her blog she recounts, “I would like to share with you a treatment I tried just before Christmas called Venus Freeze Facial, which promises a “facelift without the knife”. The very idea of a facelift, with or without the knife is absolutely terrifying to me. So on the day of my treatment, as I was sitting in a cab to the clinic, I was already thinking up ways to get out of this without letting anyone down.”
We shouldn’t have worried. Here’s what she has to say about her visit …
“When I arrived at the Eden Skin Clinic, I was immediately greeted by a super friendly team and taken into my treatment room. There I discovered that the Venus Concepts machine wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be, but also that it pretty much wouldn’t do anything to my skin apart from pulsing radio-waves (basically emitting concentrated heat) and that the therapist would gently massage each half of my face for about 30mn.”
Laetitia continues, “The sensation is VERY pleasant. I had a cold that week and my entire face felt blocked up so massaging it with gentle heat made me feel loads better. During the treatment, I was still dubious: is this really the equivalent of a face lift? Of course, it doesn’t claim to work after one session, you have to go for 3 or 4 to get any form of results. At least that’s what the therapist told me… So imagine my surprise when she showed me the first half of my face after she was done with it and I noticed it looked “clearer”. It is quite hard to pinpoint exactly what the treatment did, but my face felt fresher and generally less tense.”
