Fraxel Repair especially when combined with Thermage is absolutely worth it ! I have done it twice now and each time I have noted up until a year later the excellent results. Tighter and more elastic skin, major reduction in fine lines and an overall glow that makes one look very rested and "de-stressed". I had so many friends who had no clue that I had the procedures done say "wow, your skin looks great !! What are you doing ?? How do I get the same look ?"
I am WELL OVER DUE for my next treatment and even in these financially stressed times for all I realize the benefits and payoffs of investing in myself now rather than later. Yes its expensive but its a part of overall body maintenance that I think our previous generations had they had access would have agreed makes sense. We are all living longer so why not better and healthier. Net it out : $ 3,600 works out to just under $ 10 a day for beauty and health care that REALLY pays off. SO skip that Starbucks (or make your own to go at home) and pack some fruit and nuts for lunch instead of eating out. Now that's even healthier too !
