My dermatologist whom I adore & trust (she is same age as me 50 & looks fantastic but not "done") performed the procedure today for me. No topical anesthesia, no pain meds just did it! I do have a high pain threshold & have had botox & restalyne before so not a big deal. I have no bruising now (8 hours later) but my face is tender & when i do the 5 minute massage it is a bit painful but nothing crazy. Right now my skin looks great & everything is lifted & firm - i realize this is the temporary swelling & will return to my derm in 3 weeks so she can see how it took & possible inject more- she did my temples, my cheekbone (right under) & my chin. SHe said she wanted to lift everything just a tad & it is fantastic- She has used it on herself & loves the results so i trust her- she believes in doing small steps that make a big impact - people say i look about 40 so i know she is darn good at what she does! I also take scrupulous care of my skin- no sun, hats & Renova- I am fighting the good fight to make 50 fabulous -

The next procedure I will get is Fraxel for some brownish pigmentation on the left face by cheekbone ( I have just made the connection that is the side of my face that is always in the sun when I drive (!) it definitely has more sun damage than the right- ugh! I'm doing that in December - 6 weeks from now-
Still massaging my face as I had sculptra yesterday- it is sore - I massage way way more than 5 min 5 x a day for 5 days- I am constantly massaging for the 5 days- you can't over massage!
