I don't have many fine line wrinkles right now. Knock on wood. I may wait on this procedure.
I'm going to focus on the botox for my two wrinkles between my eyebrows. I talked to my dermatologist about it last week. I was going to the Spa place, but my doctor does it too. She's a little more expensive, but she does the injections. I like that as opposed to Spa staff, though, I'm sure they are well trained.
I noticed something since I got my hair color, highlights, and cut. My hair doesn't curl as well! I was shocked since I thought taking off a good 4 inches would really help it keep more curl and bounce. It's just not as curly and doesn't hold up as long either. My niece told me that her hair took curl better with split ends!!! I guess that's it. I need split ends to get the right look. lol
Any tips for getting more curl? Sometimes I use hot curlers, but normally just regular ones.
All in all, I'm satisfied with the condition of my skin. I've been a faithful daily & usually nightly moisturizing proponent for a long time. Plus I drink loads of water.
I do have those 2 nasty lines between my eyebrows. My daughter gave them to me. All the moisturizing product in the world doesn't seem to make a difference. They're locked in. At this point the only thing that might help would be botox, but I doubt I'll ever take the jump.
That & the jaw line is beginning to jowl a little. Nobody else seems to be able to see it, or at least won't admit to it, but I can. Someday I'll look into the mirror & see a bulldog staring back at me.

Last night I put in sponge rollers when my hair was still slightly damp. The curl was a little tighter this morning. I also added a few more curlers. I guess I'll have to work on getting more split ends! lol
Isn't that one of those things you do on the weekend for a test run??

Someone was posting about brown spots above and trying to even them out. I had my brown sunspots lasered off last year by my dermatologist. Since I've lived in FL my entire life there's no escaping the sun. The laser was not painful at all - each hit of the laser felt like a rubberband snapping along with a flash of light, although my eyes were covered with solid goggles during the procedure. They also put cold cream on your face so you don't feel any heat. The cost was $350 or $400. I was told in advance that I might need 3 treatments, but actually everything was taken care of in one.
I did get a little more curl this last time and most people I saw made positive comments. It must be good, because I get more looks than when I wear it straight. I do feel a little bad when I don't wear it curled, because family, friends, and colleagues have told me in a sincere way how much they like it. I'm not going to put a lot of heat on it though, no matter what. I know that will damage it long term and I won't do that.
I would like to use a styling gel, but I don't know which one to use. I've looked at so many brands....I'm confused. I have wasted so much money on various products over the years, I hesitate to buy one more thing I will be dissatisfied with. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
GREAT info on the sun spot laser treatment, Cornholio! I have two that need attention. I was going to buy some cream that fades it, but the cream was $62.00 at Costco! That's a lot for something that may not work.
