I’m just gonna get this out right now – I’m vain.
I care as much about my exterior appearance as I do my internal wellness. I’ve spent a lot of money over the years to keep my skin looking healthy and vibrant – facials, botox, IPL’s, Ultherapy, quality skin care products…
Skin requires maintenance – inside and out. Dr. Ken Berry says that your skin is a reflection of the foods you’ve eaten for past none weeks. You are in fact, what you eat, Your skin is your largest organ and is a reflection of what’s happening to you internally.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t help it a bit 😉
Many of you have probably heard of Vampire Facials, or PRP Facials or Micro-needling. Micro-needling creates tiny holes in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin – so basically I let someone poke holes in my face to create a smoother surface! May seem counter-intuitive but it really works! Rochester Laser Center does something special that I haven’t found anywhere else – the medically-supervised team of expert providers offers microneedling in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma therapy for dramatic results. And the results ARE dramatic.
I think this shot shows the most dramatic results!
We video the entire process which you can review here – took about 1 hour.
Now, here’s what REALLY IMPORTANT – I spent a LOT of time in the sun on my vacation – I did not go out without sunscreen, a sun hat and something to cover myself (I also have a “Buff” that is SPF 40 rated that I can put around my neck). Seriously, I’m a redhead – I don’t actually tan – I burn and then freckle, so what’s the sense of going through this (or any skin maintenance) if I’m just going to turn around and damage it?
PS – Sunhats are cool!
