Every other area on my skin is quite healthy, so this area makes me pretty self conscious. I did about a year's worth of research before I decided to move forward with fillers. I was going to go...

My Photofacial Experience -Los Altos, CA

So I've actually received photofacials for a long time now and I'd like to share my experience because I think a lot of people go into them expecting different results than they receive. I used to get IPL about 8 years ago when I was still in high school and was dealing with acne scars. What I noticed it would do for me is dry out any existing pimples, and with the correct amount of downtime... READ MORE

Beautiful! Thank you for the update :) I ended up having new veins appear... will be back again! READ COMMENT

When I had mine done, it actually took a few days for the vein itself to disappear from view and the swelling to go down. I'd say about 5-7 days in total for the healing process. READ COMMENT
