I have hated my skin for years...some minor...

Day of treatment
I have hated my skin for years...some minor scarring from acne, some fine lines under my eyes and on my forehead...blotchiness. I have lived in California all of my life and wasn't very good about avoiding the sun. I am 45 years old and felt like I needed a little pick me up. Based on all of the pictures I looked at online, as well as the reviews I read, Mixto seemed like the best choice
I actually can't believe I am posting these pictures of myself, but if it can help someone else, I guess it's worth it!
Whoo Whew! When I woke up this morning, I knew it was gonna be bad...and I was right. My eyes are slits and the lids are swollen to about four times normal! Luckily my husband has a good sense of humor. He took one look at me and started laughing. I did a wash with tepid water and got a little of the dried blood off (that is freaking out my kids). I then reapplied the ointment they gave me. Honestly, it doesn't really hurt at all. There is a corner of my eye that is sore but that's it. It does feel really good to spray the evian water on. Very refreshing. My skin is tight and red and swollen. I haven't taken anything for pain as it doesn't feel necessary. My skin is so tight it's hard to say what the results are. I am going to be patient and not really access the results for a couple of months.
Day Two Photo
If you look at the pictures you might change your mind. LOL!
Woke up with my eyes feeling swollen but once I got up, they felt better. I am less swollen today...no pain at all. However, anyone who looked at me would think I was in pain! LOL Took a shower and felt much better after doing my hair. Got a lot of dried blood off in the shower. Feeling great! Nikki, my nurse who performed the procedure, called to check in on me which I thought was nice. She confirmed that everything I am feeling and seeing is normal. YAY!
Starting to feel a little crusty. Tiny bits look like they are peeling. Feeling great. Definitely have cabin fever though! Haven't stepped out the door since Saturday! Skin seems a lot smoother and less wrinkled but I am not sure if that is because of the swelling. Eyes still swollen but not as bad.
SUPER peely (is that a word today). A few super dark spots but when skin peels off it looks smooth and nice underneath. Going to venture out to a baseball game tonight...I still look pretty ugly...
Well, most of the skin has peeled off! I put sunscreen on today and mascara and lipstick...no face make-up. It does seem like the skin under my eyes is smoother and less wrinkley!
