You may think some before and after pictures you see when researching treatments you’re interested in, aren’t real, or they have been enhanced in some way. At DestinationSkin, what you see is what you get.
Below is a real-life story from Darinda Tracy who came to see us as she wanted to restore a more youthful glow to her complexion. The results you see below are before and after one Palomar treatment.
“I have always taken care of my skin since I was a teenager. I did some modelling in my teens and early twenties and it made me very aware of how I looked and I’ve tried to maintain a good diet and lifestyle throughout my adult life in an effort to stay healthy and hold back the years. My downfall has been smoking on and off most of my adult life and too much sun in my teens and twenties. I felt I ‘got away with it’ up until a few years ago and then the ‘smokers lines around the mouth and eyes started to show. I tried non surgical face lifts and I feel they made a difference to my skins appearance but those lines just kept staring back at me when I looked in the mirror!!
It started to bother me to the point that I considered cosmetic surgery. It terrified the life out of me but I felt that was my only option.
When I had the opportunity to have skin rejuvenation via fraxel laser (Palomar) and light therapy I was excited but apprehensive…I had heard it was painful and you had to hide for weeks while you recovered!!
How wrong could they be!!! …yes it’s uncomfortable, but not unbearable and for a few days you want to hide, but the recovery seems to happen by the hour.
By day 4 I was able to brave the shops and the pub without drawing negative attention. After a week my skin had settled down completely and the difference has been amazing!!! …I think sometimes it’s hard to see changes in oneself even though others see it, but I really can and I think the pictures speak volumes. I certainly never expected to see such a change without going under the knife!!! I’m 55 yrs old on Tuesday …I couldn’t have been given a better birthday present!!!”
