Photofacial & Weekend Review

My Dear Lovelies,
Anyone out there ever wanted to have a fancy facial? I know I have. I have just dreamed about going to the spa every week to get a different facial or body wrap or whatever else they claim can be done to make your fat melt and your skin glow. Oh, and in this little day dream, I would be drinking some fancy Italian soda or tropical smoothie in a crystal goblet. Cause, ya know, this is my fantasy. Well, today is my lucky day... minus the crystal goblet. I am embarking on a never before seen or traveled journey for yours truly. I will be getting my first IPL Photofacial, and I can't wait. Here's what an IPL Photofacial is supposed to achieve:

Eliminate your skin discoloration and uneven skin tone with our innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system. The IPL photofacial is a revolutionary method of photo rejuvenation that improves your skin’s texture, tone and appearance. A series of IPL photofacial treatments will diminish flushing or redness of the skin associated with Rosacea, reduce hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage and age, erase broken capillaries, and smooth roughly textured skin. IPL therapy also stimulates new collagen to form, thereby reducing fine lines, minimizing pore size and mild acne scarring, and increasing skin elasticity.
There is absolutely no down time following an IPL laser treatment, so you can enjoy your daily activities. During your IPL series, you will notice imperfections fade away as a more radiant, healthier and clearer complexion appears. Give us a call in our San Diego Laser Clinic for IPL photofacial treatment today!

After having horrible acne in my teen years and then overcoming it with Accutane, my skin went through a lot. Throw in two pregnancies and crazy hormones on top of that and you have a ripe recipe for some skin discoloration. It doesnt look horrendous or anything but I think that I need the color and the tone evened out.
I am documenting this, so you guys can be along for the ride and hopefully I can give insight into whether or not this works or is the right thing for you. I purchased my facials through a LivingSocial Deal (kinda like groupon) and I will be having a series of 3 facials. All one month apart. Here are some pictures I took today. Completely without makeup so you can see what the befores look like. Bear with me as I bare my face to the world.

Notice the tiny little spots of brown and red? Hopefully those will be gone. Fingers crossed!
I will keep you guys posted!
Moving on to this weekend. Fam came and left. the mini cried and cried and cried, and then got really mad at me, when they drove away. Here's the Ikea guest bedroom they stayed in.

Even though it was sad to see them leave, they left me with plenty to remember them by. I love when my mom and dad come to town. My mom lets me sleep in and gets up with my kids, brings them presents, cleans my house and frequently makes dinner AND does the dishes. And my dad buys lots of groceries and yummy goodies.
I guess if they have to leave at least they left me with a full cupboard and one less trip to make to the grocery store this week. We miss them though! At least the holidays are right around the corner! Which reminds me, I have some costumes and decorations to make!
xoxo, Janean
