I took that first step, I looked in the mirror. Aside from seeing the 20lbs I had lost last year reappear, I'm also seeing a few things I knew would eventually come.... wrinkles. I know they don't appear overnight but, honestly, I never saw them coming. One day they aren't there and the next day they are. What to do?
Diet and exercise are an extremely important foundation for being healthy and looking great but you just can't "undo" a wrinkle no matter how faithful you are to living a healthy lifestyle. Or can you?
|Shanthala MD Medspa and Laser Center|
It was a snowy Monday evening in February and I was nervous and excited. I wasn't at all sure of what to expect from this experience but I knew I wanted to check it out. I would sit and listen to what the doctor had to say and then make up my mind as to what, if anything, I'd have done. No pressure. I parked and made my way inside. Any nervousness quickly subsided as I entered Dr. Shanthala's warmly inviting reception area. It was serene. Tastefully decorated in richly toned decor from the doctor's native India, comfortable seating and a beautiful array of healthy snacks awaited the arriving guests. It was the perfect combination of relaxation, beauty and warm hospitality. I was greeted by a lovely woman who offered me a comfortable seat and my choice of a variety of different beverages. I chose a warm cup of herbal tea to sip while I nibbled on hummus and fruit.
Just moments passed and Dr. Shanthala quietly entered the room. She came toward me and introduced herself. She was lovely and warm. She was interesting and knowledgeable. She asked if I was ready and I was so she lead me to a treatment room for further examination and discussion about what was to be done. We talked as we walked and I really felt like I was with a friend. It's hard to describe unless you meet her but it felt as though I'd known her for a very long time. I wondered if that was everyone's experience? She's lovely.
The process was simple, and relatively painless. A slight pinch made by the tiniest of needles in the area of the injection(s) is all you will feel. Dr. Shanthala was gentle and concerned throughout the process that took a bit less than an hour as she carefully chose each injection site for maximum benefit.
You can expect some immediate results but full results can take up to two weeks to reveal themselves. I was immediately pleased. I've included some before and after pictures so you can see the difference. I felt exactly how I wanted to feel..... fresh and lovely. What a perfect start to the journey that lay ahead.
Stay with me........
