Good Afternoon! It’s a good thing I work in a spa, otherwise, it might be a little harder to explain why my face is peeling off 🙂 I got through the da, yesterday, and was able to educate clients and staff as to the healing process my skin is going through. Very exciting, if you ask me. I went home and washed my face for the 4th time and most of the peeling is gone. The redness has subsided quite a bit and the skin that is unveiling is flawless.! 🙂 No lines, no broken capillaries, no hyperpigmentation. It’s amazing.
I’m on my way to see Dr. Haddle for the post procedure check-up. Can’t wait to hear what he says. Everyone in the office was ecstatic about the results and how quickly I’m healing. Dr. Haddle says the increased healing is due to the PRP process which he does. It stands for platelet rich plasma, which has healing and growth factors secreted from plasma cells that were taken from my own blood. He applies this after the procedure and immediately sees the redness of the skin lessen. I am truly shocked by how quickly my face has transitioned. I’m still a little shiny from the occlusive ointment. He said I can wear make-up starting Thursday, but, heck!!! Why would I do that and cover up this work of art that he has created. The fine lines, pigmentation and large pores are all but gone. Just a little flakiness left. By Thursday, I can get back to my regular skincare routine and start using my Clarisonic (gently!). The biggest factor is protecting my skin from the sun with a good sunscreen.
Dr. Haddle also said that the effects of the laser continue to increase collagen production for 6 months. WOW!
Thanks for following along. I will post again on Thursday. We are planning a follow-up presentation with Dr. Haddle at Tranquility in July, so stay tuned for more info on the date and time. In the meantime, feel free to call Dr. Haddle’s office at 630-232-9090 for a consultation appointment. He is truly a wonderful doctor!
