So, I tortured myself again and went for round three of my laser treatments. I have to say, I’m getting impatient. I certainly see SOME spots removed, but I still feel like there’s A LOT more work to be done.
When I arrived, the receptionist and technician expectantly asked how I’m liking my skin these days. I look at them like they’re crazy and lift my hair out of my face and said, “Huh? My skin looks terrible! I’m not seeing much improvement, do you?”
They look nervous. They clearly expected a more positive answer. But let’s face it, I shelled out mucho bucks, endured pain and ugly splotches for a more beautiful face and I demand to have one! I know, I know I have to be realistic, but my hope is fading (not to mention my energy for all of this, especially during pitch time). I can’t help but wonder whether 4 sessions will be sufficient to make a dent in my war against sun damage.
As you can see from the pic, I came away from the session with another round of splotches. That’s a good sign because it means some spots have been eradicated. But all I see are gross brown scabs, and it doesn’t help I just found out I have to meet some prospective clients on Monday!
Oh well. If I’ve learned anything about this process, it’s that I can walk around looking like I belong in a freak show and be somewhat OK with it. I went out in public today and even socialized with friends. Maybe I’m less beauty conscious than I thought?
Hmmmm . . .
Nah. Is still want to look totally awesome! I HAVE to believe this process will work, right?
In the meantime, any suggestions out there for some amazing cover up for my Monday meeting?
