After my consultation and discussing more about the treatment and me confirming that I do indeed want to go ahead with this, she explained in detail all the instructions for before and after treatment. And what to expect both with the end results and during the healing process. She wanted to make sure I knew it was a slow gradual improvement over time, to not expect to look better right away. To me this was a major plus. I love the more natural approach to things and the fact that I will be building my own collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic acid instead of pumping my face full of stuff, that made me happy. I should start to see results around 2-3 months out but I wont see the full results till about 6 months and a chance it can improve even more up to a year!
There is a little down time, I can expect to be bruised and swollen for a few days. but to give myself about a week of downtime, but it could be longer. Not going to lie, this part scares me a tad, but I am prepared to stay inside and catch up on some light cleaning and things around the house. No working out for 5 days… So nothing too strenuous. I also can’t wear makeup for a week! Yikes, I am going to be one scary looking lady! But If it really does all that it says it does, it will be well worth it!!!
I booked my apt for exactly two weeks from my consultation and Boy did that seem like a super long two weeks! But today is finally the day I go into Aesthetica Medical Spa to get the Profound treatment done!! For the Past two weeks I have never been so diligent about wearing my sunscreen and making sure I have had my 8 glasses of water in all of my life. I was determined to do everything asked of me to ensure the best results possible!
I am kind of anxious and nervous about it all. But Rachiele is so calming it’s hard to stay that way… that and the fact that I am feeling pretty good right about now with my Valium.
First she had me come in and take before pictures. That’s a very important step to make, because with the changes being so gradual you might forget just how bad it really was before. Yep with no makeup on and no smiles, it felt more like taking mugshots. Yikes I can’t believe I am even sharing these…EW!
A little video clip I made while waiting for the numbing cream to take effect. LOL
After waiting to make sure I was completely numb she proceeded with the procedure. The actual procedure took maybe 45 minutes. It really wasn’t bad at all. All that anxiety for nothing. I literally was relaxed and chill the entire time. I am so dumb I have never had Valium before so I was kind of nervous taking it and started to worry about all the what if’s like, what if I am allergic or do something super weird? LOL no wonder I need Valium, I worry about everything!!
I had to have a ride home of course, I was still feeling the effects of the Valium. When I got home I was still pretty numb. I was told to ice on and off every 15 minutes or so, I set an alarm and made sure I did exactly as I was told because I definitely didn’t want to prolong the swelling or bruising!
I must be still feeling the affects of the valium cause I made another video… the last sentence gets cut off but i say I don’t like to take drugs but I pretend I do! LOL That’s funny Stuff!!
