It took a couple hours and it stung a little bit, but so what. After a few weeks I came back, and everyone in the office just gave me a horrified look. I didn't look any better at all. (In fact, I appeared worse because I had just had my hair colored for my thermage appointment, and I kind of needed my hair done when I came in for the followup.)
I am not well-off. I used hard-earned savings. I may as well have taken my $4,000 and burned the bills. Absolutely NOTHING changed on my face.
