Everything you need to know about that terrifying looking facial Alexandra from Love Island had

Alexandra shocked fans with her peeling face.

ALEXANDRA CRANE OF Love Island fame scared the shite out of her fans when she posted on her Instagram Story this week.

The reality star answered some questions about her peeling face, which was as the result of a CO2 laser facial.

Woah woah woah, what the hell did she do to her face?

Alexandra used to have a skin condition called ‘impetigo’ so this is why she went ahead with the laser facial.

“I used to get blisters on my skin that would pus and take ages to scab over. I would pick at them and was then left with scarring and uneven skin.

She explained that the procedure, “helps enlarged pores, uneven, pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, scarring.”

Jennifer Aniston also counts herself as a fan of the treatment.

The Friends star previously told talk show host Conan O’Brien: “It’s extremely intense – you don’t realise you look like a battered burn victim for a week,’ she said, referring to her obsession with “laser porn”.

Then [the dead skin on your face] just kind of falls off – for eight days.”

How does it work so?

The laser removes layers of skin in a “fractionated method”. Basically, your face is divided up into columns and lasered. 

For your comfort during the treatment, you may have a topical anesthetic applied or receive local anesthetic and/or tumescent anesthetic.

After the treatment, most patients describe the post-procedure feeling as a bad sunburn for about 12 hours to 2 days. Alexandra spoke about how she suffered some swelling, and had some discomfort around her eyes. So if your main query was, “she’s supposed to look like?!”, the answer is yes.

Seemingly, people get great results from a single treatment, with the key being the recovery time (7 – 14 days). It’s also recommended that you avoid the sun, for obvious reasons.

This is how Alexandra’s progress pictures look.

Right, how much does it cost then?

Alexandra paid £2,775 (€3,082). If you fancy going under the, eh, laser yourself, you can get the treatment from a number of places, including The Laser and Skin Clinic, Ailesbury Clinic, Castleknock Cosmetics, Adare Cosmetics and Auralia, among others.

Would you get it done?
