Hey guys. This is Mi-Anne, and this is
Beauty With Mi.
Another day, another facial.
Am I right?
And actually, I was thinking the other
day that I’ve been getting facials,
pretty consistently for Beauty With Mi,
for over 2 years.
Not that I’m complaining.
Last week, I did another one.
One that’s loved by many celebrities
and tons of Victoria’s Secret models.
It makes them look super nice
before awards shows.
I went to New York Dermatology Group
here in New York City that rests on
So, I got the Model Glow
Facial, which is designed to make your
skin look firmer, smoother, all around
Soooo, without further to do,
let’s get into it.
Please make sure you are subscribed
down below, and while you are at it,
please add me on Instagram
The first thing I did when I got to NYDG
was get into a comfy white robe and
wait for my esthetician, Lauren.
We are gonna get started with the
Model Glow Facial.
I’m so excited.
I feel like I’m in a
So, I’m gonna start off with a gentle
It’s an oatmeal cleanser.
The treatment started like most
treatments do, with a gentle cleanse,
and then she moved onto
The particular microderma that we’re
using, uses suction to clean out pores,
and there are crystals almost acting as
if a scrub that you’d use at home.
So, really great for removing dead
Also great for pigmentation
and fine lines.
So, I’m gonna remove
the crystals, and then we will get
started with the radio frequency.
I’m gonna put a little bit of cool
gel on your skin.
Sorry. It is really cold.
Oh, no worries.
Alright, so a little heat here.
Almost like a hot stone massage, right?
Yeah. It’s very relaxing.
You will start to see the results
immediately, and then due to the nature
of collagen, it does take a few days
for that to kick in as well.
So, I’m gonna continue to see results
for the next few days?
And so this will last for
about a month or 2.
Can something like this then be good
not only for like anti-aging, but for
like anyone who has like intense
acne scars, and that sort of thing?
It depends on the severity
of the acne scar, but we absolutely can
use this device, and then we also use
it for abdominal tightening,
for tightening around the knees.
I’m gonna remove the gel.
So, this is a little bit of stimulate
So, a little bit of glycolic in it.
So, you may feel a tingle sensation,
that’s totally normal.
And then I will put on the Colbert
MD Brightening Mask.
Actually, a really
wonderful blend of essential oils.
There’s also a little bit of Vitamin C
and Vitamin A as well.
So, I’m gonna place protection
shields over your eyes.
So, a little bright, and this is actually
a combination of both blue and
red LED light.
And so blue is really great for
bacteria and acne.
And red is great for
calming inflammation, stimulating
collagen, and really boost what we did
with the radio frequency.
How are you doing under there?
Typically, this is left on for about
LED light therapy is really cool.
There have been a lot of studies that
have spoken to its ability to speed up
Its ability to kill bacteria,
boost collagen with really no down time.
And this is another one of those
technologies that was created by,
this one was NASA, right?
Ok, so I’m gonna remove the LED light.
And remove your shields.
Just rubbing in the rest of the mask and
then we’ll get started with the cryo.
You’re gonna feel a little bit of a
And this is liquid nitrogen?
This is liquid nitrogen, so great for
refining pore size, calming inflammation,
and also stimulating collagen.
So, is it good injury, like that sort
Yes. Yeah, absolutely.
This light is also really great for pain.
It’s been proven for like chronic pain,
and so that’s something you’d do like
every day, but anything where your
calming inflammation, that’s always
the fan favorite.
It wasn’t painful, but it was just
something that I was like,
“Okay, like is it over?
Is it gonna be
over soon because I wanna be warm.”
But then I was, and Lauren applied
a bit of Colbert skincare to my face,
and then sent me on my way.
How are you feeling?
I feel great.
I feel so relaxed.
Right after the treatment,
I didn’t see a huge difference, but the
results I think came a few days after.
My skin has been really smooth.
It’s been brighter.
My jawline I think
has been more chiseled.
But let’s tackle the elephant in
the room, which is the price tag.
This facial costs….
Did I think it was a good treatment?
Dr. Colbert did share a couple gems
with me in terms of maintaining your
skin without dropping like ridiculous
amounts of money.
Well, there are hand-held devices for
both LED and mini-radio frequency.
And do you find those at home,
hand-held devices work?
It’s not the same amount
of energy, but they do.
I think it’s worth doing.
I think it’s
more about protecting your skin
with Zinc oxide, and something
That’s the #1 most important thing
to an audience of people under 30 is
just protect your skin and moisturize it.
You guys have probably heard this
a million times, but I’m gonna tell it
to you again from a dermatologist….
Wear sunscreen every day
even if it’s not sunny outside.
And that’s it.
I hope you enjoyed yet another crazy,
cool, expensive facial.
Thank you guys so much for watching,
and I will catch you guys next week.
Thanks so much for watching guys.
