My Laser Resurfacing Diary, Consultation

Monday, July 19

I went to Dr. Zimmet today for the initial consultation. He looked at my skin with a very bright light (I can only imagine what my skin—or anyone’s, for that matter—looks like with that level of scrutiny). He asked what my goals are. I’m most interested in overall tightening, improving my skin’s texture, and shrinking my pores. He said that it would definitely improve the size of my pores, and since they really bug me, that was good news. He also told me that they will perform the treatment on my eyelids, which I didn’t realize. I had thermage on my eyelids a couple of years ago, and while I could see the results I still consider my eyelids the best candidate for surgery if I ever decide to take that step. So I’m happy to learn that this treatment might improve my eyelids too; that’s a big bonus.

I asked him and he readily told me that he’d had the Active FX procedure done a couple of weeks earlier. He showed me the pictures—before, during the healing process, and after—and they were pretty dramatic. Continue reading
