64 Years OLD, Got Tired of Turkey Neck and Jowls - Montreal, QC

I decided that I wanted to freshen up my face before I turned 65 so I went for it! It all went smoothly and I had next to no pain afterwards.

Would appreciate comments. Thanks!! READ MORE

Thanks for your great advice. I had not heard that zinc helps promote healing... I raised the question about the silicone cream but was told that it will not be necessary and it's too soon to be using these creams and sheets. Keep... READ COMMENT

Thanks for the encouragement! This week I went out in public, with some creative makeup and I'm pretty sure I looked normal to others. The good news: I ran into an old acquaintance at the mall and she exclaimed: "It's been a long time..... READ COMMENT
