So I made it to 40 on my own, and have finally...
Problem areas I hope to treat:
Overall my skin is pretty good - nothing major to complain about but a bit of under eye puffiness (thanks LA party animals!) and a little bit of pinkness from rosacea (I don't have it bad since giving up gluten 5 years ago). A few small scars, a few discolorations (like freckles kind of) or little sun spots, and one big dog bite scar on my lower lip/chin (12 pounds of dog, 11 years ago, 18 stitches). Some fine lines (I received a small amt of botox to lessen some lines at the corners of my eyes from smiling), "nasal labial fold" lines (I received a very tiny bit of filler there a few months ago), and crepe-iness under my eyes.
Hoping the CO2 will help with all of this. I will be posting a photo before (day of), and daily after to show the progress. No make up obviously.
Day of procedure
Day 1 after procedure
Once in the car the AC saved me and the toradol definitely had kicked in. Got home to a prepped and air conditioned bedroom, ate a quick dinner and went to sleep.
Woke up at 5am and applied more barrier ointment and fell asleep. 11am now and no pain at all, some tightness, looks gross. :) took a little shower (I have a sonaki vitamin C filter shower head to remove impurities) and am doing the vinegar soak. Still no pain, just super puffy, swollen and some tightness.

Amazing office and staff. My original consultation was with Dr. Leif Rogers & Elissa Tober-Squire. I have had wonderful experiences at this office, and can only say that you get what you pay for - I would never price shop around when it comes to injectables and lasers! I look for skill, experience, and expertise - it's easy to see why they have a reputation for being the best of the best!!
