Hi everyone!

I have been looking for a site that it is from a real group of members, not one that is backed by some product with "fake" testimonies. This looks just like what i am looking for. I have not had time to read as many posts i want to, but am looking forward to reading more.

I am 53 years old and admittedly concerned about my skin, maybe even a little vain about it. Oh well, after all we are bombarded with so much about how we look. I struggle with putting too much emphasis on that, but i do want to look my best.

I am a real estate "flipper" as tv has coined the title. My husband is a real estate appraiser and i was a loan officer for many years. That is where i met him. I stayed in banking until my father, my best friend, was diagnosed with als or lou gehrig's disease. I left banking to go home and help take care of dadddy. He lived three years on a respirator before he went home to heaven. Although those three years were heart wrenching, i have many fond memories of all the time i got to spend with him.

My husband and i have no children, not our choice, but apparently not the plan for us. We have helped raise neices and nephews that needed us. We do have no dogs that we love.

I injured my back 3 years ago and have had three surgeries since. I still remain in a lot of pain and have been unable to "flip" a house in about 2 years. It is driving my crazy! I guess i have had to much time to look in the mirror. Good thing i guess that for quite a while i was medicated so much for the pain i did not see how bad i really looked! So instead of spackle on drywall i have been putting spackle on my face. Sigh. Evey drywall mud would not fill the wrinkles.

Just recently a cosmetology school opened about 1 mile from my home. I can actually walk to it which is good for me. I don't know if any of you have checked out this resource but i can highly recommend it. A peel, 30% aha, or microdermabrasion runs about $30.00 each. You can buy a package of 6 treatments plus 1 free one for $150.00. Your treatments are preformed by students and supervised by an administrator. My skin is improving as far as clarity, discolorations and fine lines. It feels and looks very smooth, but of course, a thousand of these treatments does not help of sagging or deep wrinkles.

I have been reading (have a lot of time to do that now) about and have seen in magazines and even on tv about a procedure called "lifestyle lift. I called about the information but infortunately all you get is one brochure featuring before and after pictures. Unlike most ads, the little wording below the pictures do not say "not typical results". They actually say "actual photos, untouched". The results, if they are truly accurate are very impressive, if not almost unbelieveable. That's the problem, if something seems to good to be true, it usually is a fake.

My question is...has anyone had this procedure or know any more about it? They claim that it is affordable, takes only one hour, with instant results. The procedure if for the lower part of the face. It lifts the jowls, the area around the mouth and the neck. I was told that lifestyle lift has several centers around the country and that is the only place that you can get it. They also guarantee financing.

Anyway, hello to everyone again. I look forward to swapping tips with "you all". (southern tennessee) have a great day, and i will check in later.

Hi

I'm sorry to hear about your dad and your back. I have read somewhere that microdermabrasion breaks the skin capillaries and the dermatologist said to avoid it. But obviously there are different skin types so...
Anyway I am new here as well.

I think Dallas is one of the areas that has a center that does that lifestyle lift procedure...I think...

I'm interested in it, too "after" I lose weight (working on it now). I'm fairly certain I'll look more like I need it afterwards.

Tennesee isn't far from TX.

Hi Janet,

Sounds like you've been through it but coming out the other side!
I too am a daddy's girl and in Real estate and we just finished our second flip while he was in bed recovering from a bout with oral cancer. He starts radiation the end of this month. I am only well, 30 in a week or so and I worry about my skin! You have come to the right spot! WELCOME Janet.
