C02 laser Day two...I look horrendous!!!

I look horrible!!! 

Ok it looks crazy right!!! So I informed Jeremy yesterday we would not be leaving the house for a week because I don't want to be seen like this! At work it isn't so bad. They see stuff like this all the time and nothing surprises our patients! They also get to see first hand what they would go through should they have one of these. 

So this morning I had to get gas....No problem I am going to find a pump wayyyy far in the back and use my debit card, pay at the pump, get just enough gas to make it a few days and be done. Great plan. Till I realized that I had forgotten my debit card in my bedroom!! 

The lady behind the counter was very gracious and tried not to stare. Others I had to pass to get to the store and back to my car, not so much. People are so shallow! This did give me some insight into what other people that have to live with things like this every day go through. You will read more of that on my Thankful Thursday blog. 

So all day at work I had people ask which treatment I had and what it was for etc. I love answering their questions and being a source of information!! So if you have any feel free to ask away!!

Day two pain level is minimal. I am crusty as heck and have to keep stuff on my face so it heals nicely. It is itchy in some places but not to bad so far. My skin is swelled and very tight, It hurts to open my mouth to far. 

It is still to early to notice improvements but I am excited!!!

Foot note. Technically day two doesn't end till this afternoon around one. This morning I woke and took my shower which takes longer due to the procedure. I am just starting to see slight flaking off of the brown "grid" I was thinking down time three to five days come on it has to be better than this. I also had to remind myself that technically it had been just a few hours over 36. I have to be patient and patience is not a strong point of mine I am an instant gratification kind of girl.

This afternoon I go from using the thick vaseline type salve to a healing cream! I am excited! I hate having my face feel like an oil spill!

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!


2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.


3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
