My Journey to Clear & Brilliant Skin

Y’all, I am petrified of aging. Listen, I know, embrace your wrinkles and your laugh lines. I swore I would not get the Botox bug because I knew once I started, there was no turning back. The first time I got Botox, I was 37. I WISH it would have been sooner. I am obsessed with it. If I am loving this so much, what are some other anti-aging procedures out there?

Introducing the Clear & Brilliant® Laser Treatment!!! Now, this is probably not new, but it was new to me. This is a more affordable treatment similar to micro-needling. “Clear + Brilliant® works by creating hundreds of thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin, which replaces damaged skin with healthy-looking tissue and yields younger-looking skin.”

The procedure is non-invasive, there is no cutting or needles. It leaves your skin feeling smoother and more youthful. The process is quite simple. I had 3 treatments done, this will depend on your dermatologist on the number of treatments. You arrive 30 minutes before your appointment for them to apply a numbing cream, this is so you don’t really feel the laser. The best way I can explain how it feels is like a tracing wheel but on your face. Not painful, but you feel it.

I could already see a difference in my skin after the first treatment. Here are my photos from beginning to end.

I will follow up with facials/peels every so often to maintain the treatment, who doesn’t enjoy being pampered. I know I do! Moms deserve it!

Have you done any laser treatments? Are you scared of aging? Is it ever too early to take care of your skin?
