Hi Guys! I hope everyone has had a great weekend. I recently announced that I will be doing some treatments on my face to hopefully clear up the hyper pigmentation and oily issues that I have. I wanted to give you all an update after my first Cutera Enlighten Pico Genesis procedure.
First off, it didn’t hurt at all. I’ve done other laser treatments before that have been uncomfortable, but this one was such a breeze. Secondly, unlike ipl or other treatments, Cutera Enlighten Pico Genesis requires absolutely NO downtime. My skin did not turn red, and my dark spots did not get darker before lightening.
I did the procedure on Good Friday and left for vacation 2 days later without any issues. I took before photos the night before, and here are my after photos taken today (about a 3 weeks later). I first noticed my hyper pigmented spots start to fade, and lately I’ve noticed the melasma above my lip fading too.
I consulted with Katie at Northshore Plastic Surgery to come up with the perfect plan for my skin specifically, and I trust that she will have my sun damaged skin looking flawless in no time.
Speaking of sun damage… this month is skin cancer awareness month, and currently Northshore Plastic Surgery has discounts on all of their sunscreen. I use the Skin Medica tinted one everyday. I love it because it is mattifying, and I don’t feel the need to wear foundation to work anymore as this one covers most of my imperfections. It also protects against heat which no other sunscreen does. So it drastically helps with my melasma issues as well.
You can check out the sunscreen deals here, and give them a call if you have any questions about the best products and or procedures for your skin. Also you can get a heads up on their monthly deals here.
I will be trying out Cutera Excel V Laser Genesis on my neck, chest and face to reduce pore size, oiliness and help with redness and wrinkles. I’ll also be trying out laser tattoo removal on my next visit. I will be sure to keep you all updated on the entire process!
