Recently Bossy went to a Skincare Specialist, which is not the same as a Dermatologist, because Bossy did that too.
The difference is: one has built a career attending to all of the latest clinical techniques and procedures associated with elasticity, longevity, and rejuvenation — and one is a skin doctor.
Bossy’s skin has never given her much trouble, but as she ages — and this is strange — her skin gets old. And so Bossy was looking for advice regarding the most effective management routine given her limited resources.
After analyzing Bossy’s skin along with her concerns, Bossy’s Skincare Specialist advised Bossy she would most benefit from an IPL procedure, which stands for Intense Pulsed Light.
According to Bossy’s Skincare Specialist, during our lives we accrue sun damage — and other damage such as living — which hides under the skin and comes out at will.
This means you could have spent the last twenty years diligently applying sunblock to your face, but sun damage will still appear from that time twenty years and one day ago.
Enter IPL. From what Bossy can remember — which isn’t much because years of sunblock choked Bossy’s power of recall — the Intense Pulsed Light drives into the skin, bringing age spots, broken capillaries, and other dormant discoloration to the surface of the skin where it is later released.
Bossy admits she’s probably missing the fine points regarding this procedure, because Bossy was too busy with the big point, which is: she can’t afford it.
Bossy takes solace in the fact there are probably worse things than age spots lurking under her skin, keeping her company. Aww!
