Extreme Beauty: Laser Facials, the Befores and Afters

This is me after the team from Glamsquad descended upon my house with an arsenal of beauty and hair supplies to transform me from work-from-home-editor/mom life into someone willing to take a selfie. Add in good lighting, too (a girl’s best friend).

It’s easy to feel camera-ready when you have a team of experts to slap on layers of paint, accentuate the good stuff and cover-up the bad stuff. Sadly, they aren’t on hand as much as I’d wish them to be (as in like all day every day). And no one has come up with an Instagram filter for real life yet. And … my DIY makeup skills are borderline pathetic. Is it any wonder I wear my professional makeup for as many humanly hours as I can keep it on. If I could sleep in it and make it work the next day, I would.

And those reasons are why I started working with Vivid Face. Wearing makeup isn’t always an option. And while it’s a lot easier to fake perfect skin, I’d rather have as close as I can get to the real thing.

As I’ve mentioned before, several years ago my skin decided to betray me in the most annoying way possible: adult acne. I tried everything to get rid of it: lotions, potions, prescriptions, even pills. Nothing worked.

Then I had a series of laser facials. Not only did it clear up my acne and the annoying discolorations it left behind, it also got rid of sunspots, brightened my complexion and worked on my darkened under-eye areas.

But don’t take my word for it, check out my before and after pics below. The before is before I tried lasers—ever. The after, my last appointment. I never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever post before and after pics. And it’s normally a cold day in hell before I will post anything with me makeup-less, but I wanted to share just how truly amazing these treatments have been. When those times arise when you can’t have an squad of glamourites beautify you, you can still feel good about yourself. More than anything, that’s what these treatments have done.
