Last weekend, I finally got the chance to have some pampering time for myself. It was way overdue and I thought it might as well be a treatment that will jumpstart my skin improvement journey.

It was my first time to visit SkinHouse Beauty and Laser Clinic and I finally got to meet Gretha who explained to me the Gentle Yag Laser Treatment procedure that I was there for.

Laser skin tightening is a unique facial rejuvenation option that produces dramatic results. It effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance. As gravity and the aging process naturally take place, the skin loses its elasticity and youthful appearance. This treatment may offer an alternative to, or help supplement a surgical facelift. It is a safe, effective way to lessen the effects of time.

Laser skin tightening helps with improving fine wrinkles and lines on the face without prolonged “downtime”. The effect is often referred to as non-invasive collagen remodeling.

I was actually choosing between Laser Hair Removal and Laser Skin Tightening.  I also wanted to do away with having to shave my underarms every so often, so the former was very tempting. But since I was blogging about this, I couldn’t bring myself to think I would have to post images of my pits. Haha! Besides, I also  would love to do something about my laugh lines that are threatening to further embed around my poor mouth prematurely.  Now that I think about it, I believe it’s a facial feature passed down to us because my mom’s laugh lines have been pretty prominent too even at her young age. Plus I kind of give in to laughing whenever. With homeschooling my corny and giggly 8 year old son for 4 years now, can you really blame me?  🙂
