Vanity...........not Violence

Inquiring minds want to know.........what happened to my face. I was not in a brawl, nor was I attacked at the clearance rack at Dillards.

I went to the dermatologist yesterday to inquire about a chemical peel. It evens out the skin tone, etc. She suggested I wait until the fall when the sun exposure won't be as much. I took her advice, but in the meantime she hooked me up with some laser treatment to rid my complexion of some unsightly splotches. I was concerned I was too vain, but if I am willing to walk around like this for 7 days, how vain can I be?

Comment away.

I never noticed any splotches anywhere on your face ever. I would love to have my face made over and shave about 20 years off. Of course if I was going to shave off 20 years I would want the whole body done. Oh to be back in my 28 year old face and body!! That would be nice!

I love the title! haha Vanity? Nah. Only if you lock yourself up and refuse to let anyone see you until you're perfect! My question - did it or does it hurt? I would love to have something done to my cheeks which are quite red most of the time, but I'm not real fond of pain nor procedures that don't really work. So, thanks for trying these things out for us!!!!

It was several little "ZAPS" when she did it, it was no big deal especially after the first 2 or 3 times. It doesn't hurt at all now, just looks like a bruise. Have to keep it moisturized until it heals (about 5 to 7 days). The chemical peel takes about 1 1/2 weeks to heel. I'm ready to see what this looks like all healed up!
