Morning my fit friends. Today I pose to you, do you medspa? By medspa I mean, what do you do to maintain your healthy youthful appearance and how do you feel about a little help from science? Personally, I feel like we do everything we can to keep our bodies healthy and fit from the inside out, so why not a little help? Not a flatter pic, I know, but I wanted you to see what I see.
This comes about because I’ve recently been considering Botox for the wrinkles so magically appearing around my eyes, and low and behold, there’s a living social deal from my Medspa. So I’m going to take the plunge. I can’t justify making the appointment and paying full price, but I can certainly live with a great deal.
Personally, I’ve had microdermabrasion and given it to Ava as a gift. I didn’t see much of a visible result, so the esthetician recommended a chemical peel. I was a bit nervous, but I scheduled it a few weeks later. We did the peel, and again, I didn’t get the expected result. We scheduled another appointment after a vacation that left me with sun spots in my hairline, yep missed by the sunscreen. This time she applied it a bit thicker, whoa, did it work! My face peeled like Goldmember! They weren’t kidding that you shouldn’t make plans for the week in a visibly public place. Five days after the peel, I entered my local Kennedy & Perkins to pick out a new pair of glasses and had to leave after I got a glance of myself in the mirror. I apologized to the associate and told her I would be back. It was disgusting! The results on the other hand were amazing. No more sun spots and my skin glowed for weeks. I’m sure this is a maintenance thing, but it’s also costly to do on the reg.
It’s been a year since I’ve done anything other than a facial. I’m taking the plunge today by purchasing the Botox and the chemical peels. I’ll take you on my journey of before and after.
What are your thoughts? Do you get a little help or do you prefer to keep it natural?
