Until I reached the age of 62 and one day caught a glance of my face in the rear-view mirror of my car – in full sunlight – I had sworn I would not care if I had wrinkles. But that day, the shock of seeing my crumpled skin drove me to care about my wrinkles…! I knew it wasn’t the end of the world to look old, but if I could look a little better, and without surgery, I thought, why not? I realized that some of the procedures weren’t cheap, but I also calculated how much I spent on my hair and nails each year, and I reasoned that if I was prepared to spend that much on those parts of my body, why would I resist spending a similar amount on my face? Especially since I was working very hard to earn my money, so was lucky enough to have some discretionary income after meeting all my obligations, including donations to my favorite cat causes. After a consultation with Dr. O’Connell – Adrienne, who is very friendly, in addition to being an actual medical doctor who still works as an ER physician – I agreed with her recommendation to do a CO2 Laser treatment. (I was willing, but skeptical, mind you.) But the change in the texture of my skin and the reduction of lines was honestly amazing.
I also wrote about the procedure for Stu News, where I was working as an editor at the time. Click on these links to read my story.
