Guys, I always say you can tell a woman’s age by looking at her neck. And, my goodness, I am no exception. My face may be approaching 47 but my neck is about 107! So imagine my excitement when I was offered a free diagnostic skin analysis and IPL treatment fromΒ Nix and Tee.

But First….. About Nix & Tee

Their friendship, deep-seated love of helping people and years of experience as nurses serves as the inspiration behind Nix & Tee – an aesthetic and wellness clinic focused on encouraging women on their journey to achieving beauty, healing and living a fulfilling life.

Through the years their interest has always been in the mental, physical and emotional journey that people undertake every day to find inner peace.

The Skin Analysis

Nix used an Aram Huvis APM Pro to do a thorough analysis of my skin. This incredible little machine takes high magnification images of skin, looking at the skins individual moisture levels, sebum levels, pores, the presence of acne or acne bacteria, melanin (causes pigmentation) hemoglobin (vascular issues) and wrinkles.

It then gives a full diagnostic skin analysis, which as a trained skin care therapist, really surprised me. I expected my analysis would say I have a combination to normal skin. Instead, it showed my results as oily skin with lots of hemoglobin (vascular) and melanin (pigmentation) issues, especially in my neck.

Have a look at these images of my skin:

The Treatment

From this analysis, Nix was able to not just recommend a suitable treatment plan for me, which for now is a course of Exilite IPL Vascular treatments. This is basically laser treatments that will rectify both the vascular and melanin levels in my skin and hopefully give me a neck that looks like it belongs to my 40 something face as opposed to a granny!

I had my first treatment a week ago and will have one treatment every 21 days for a course of about 5 – 7 treatments. The treatment itself wasn’t bad at all. I expected it to be a lot more painful. It wasn’t painful, it felt more like a series of heat blasts across my neck and decollete.

But after just one treatment, I can already see an improvement.


My diagnostic skin analysis also throughout the ideal skin care regime for me to use at home. I’ve been using these, the Alpha-H products for the last week and I’m loving them. Look out for that full review soon.
