Its not that I feel I look bad but I am thinking that if I look like I do now at 40 and my 30 year old mates are taking care of themselves from such a young age by the time they are 40 and I am 50 I will look 80 whilst they still look 30!!.
With the greencard from hubby to start getting into a facial routine or at least visiting a beauty therapist ( I have been waxing myself, dying my hair and basically DIYing since he met me) I took up an offer at The Taylor Clinic to come and see what they can do.
I had the PicoSure Laser Treatment to my face it is perfect for me and pretty much an Aussies as regardless of how hard we try we are in the sun so much of the year that our face is bound to suffer from some pigmentation from the sun.
I have freckles and always have but since being in Australia some are almost a birthmark as they have grown so much!!. That was my main reason for going but the added bonus of this treatment also stimulating the production of elastin and collagen for up to 3 months post treatment was a brilliant bonus.
Here is a before and after.. do you see any difference?
So what did it feel like and will I go back for more?
Ok so beauty does not come without a little bit of discomfort and yes I did know there was a laser there but it took 15 minutes top and was like any laser (I have had my legs lasered so knew what it would be like) a little like someone flicking an elastic band on my face? No where near as bad as a tattoo and not even enough to make my eyes water. Does that describe it well enough?
You can see me at my most red stage in the image above and that was all gone by the evening..
Will I go back? Yep for sure.. I am planning to do this Coolsculpting for sure and I have a few girls talking about us having a girls day and all having breakfast somewhere nice then going in for the Laser Resurfacing but I think I might talk them into buying themselves a bit of a gift and doing the Pico again as it is shorter time and does even more :)
I will embarrass myself and report back on the CoolSculpting post that as I am planning to do that on that little bit around my belly button that has just never been the same since the kids despite all the exercise I do!..
Do you do facials?
Ever had lasering?
Tell me your secrets....
