Happy Skin for the Holidays

Luckily, I’ve enjoyed life with lots of laughter and emotional experiences, which is sometimes more obvious than I want based on the small wrinkles around my eyes (or less delicately termed: “crow’s feet”).  Skin around the eyes is especially vulnerable because it’s more delicate and tends to age more rapidly than skin on other areas of the body.

Unfortunately, many of the quick-fix treatments are expensive, painful and don’t work for crow’s feet. This holiday season, thanks to Cheryl Pierce at Ageless Beauty Skin Clinic, I tried a Fraxel treatment. Fraxel is different because it treats one fraction of tissue at a time with thousands of microscopic laser columns that stimulate a natural healing process that works from the inside out, expediting the production of collagen and elastin, which results in tighter, fresher, more youthful-looking skin. I’m very happy with the results! Happy Holidays, indeed!
