OK so here I am at the ripe old age of 42. I take pretty good care of my skin. Avoid sun, wear sunscreen, and get vitalize peels 3 x a year. I've used retin-a since mty mid 20-s and still do to help keep acne under control. However, after going through a divorce and going back to work full time for first itme in 10 years, despite my best efforts, I was aging and an accelerated rate. Early light jowling (inheritted) loss of volume. My one plump round face was begiinng to look more like a sad Basset Hound. Not a good look. Since hitting 41 I've tried everything. (i.e filler, botox, skyntyte) Pretty much anything barring surgery to get my to began using filler on various parts of my face without getting quite the results I sought.
Fast forward to 42. Still aging faster than I could keep up. Upon the reommendation of my dermatologist I tried her new machine "sure to put off a face lift for a lifetime" Really?!?!?!? OK I was sold-- I booked an appointmet for my eyes and forward area at 1000.00 2 weeks later March 10th. It is now May 2nd and I woke up today and thought wow I don't look so sleep deprived..cool. I almost look rested. I have another month to go before seeing full results so I am excited to see the diff. at that point...(I'll keep you updated) I am not goin to lie it HURT and I had NO PAIN anything but three motrin before hand. It hurt bad. The good news it is very fleeting. I just gritted my teeth held the squeezy balls and thought of the outcome--"No pain No gain" kept running though my mind. I proceeded to do my lower face March 22nd which only hurt on the jawline. it was numb and sore for almost 4 wee (1500.00). The jury is still out on lower face results it's too soon to tell. I will say it was very swollen for about 2 weeks after. I'm hoping to see results over the course of the month since numbness is gone..
