My facial skin looks old, wrinkled and my pores are huge 7 weeks after co2 laser treament....Help!

I had co2 laser restructuring done on my face and neck at laserlights in Atlanta ga on may 31 and so its been 7 weeks and my pores have gotten large all over my face and its splotchy and the texture looks terrible....also the lines on my face look deeper or the same and its as if the skin is saggier....it was an aggressive treatment but it wasn't the ablative laser. Also the marks left by the laser on my facial lines are still read and my face/neck still red/pink....i don't know what to do and im going to see the nurse that did the treatment in a few more days.....im hoping this will improve over time but i wish i knew of things to take or eat/drink that can expedite the healing.....anybody else out there done this and had similar results? wheres all the skin tightening and smoothness?

Do not go back to the treating person until you see a skin specialist
that way you will know what went wrong and will know it the treating person really can help fix the problem

SOURCE: How can I make the pores on my face look smaller

Most enlarged pores on the face are the result of hereditary factors more than anything else. You really cannot make the pores disappear. You will have to create the illusion of a poreless complexion. Apply foundation, concealer, powder and blush in a downward motion, otherwise you'll accentuate pores by pushing color up and into them. For a temporary fix, especially for a special event, I recommend using Colosé Serum Vital Lifting. It tightens and tones the surface layer, refreshs, moisturizes and firms your skin. With the first application the skin becomes even, smooth and has a radiant appearance. The tightness last approximately 4 to 6 hours and definitely makes your pores seem much smaller or even gone. Apply before makeup and let completely dry.

Absolutly, skin changes can start with pre-menopause and continue all the way through post-menapause. Hormeta has a cream to address all those problems. Try "Feminissime High Redefinition Cream" day and night. You may also want to try our new "Feminissime Serum" which can also be used day and night under any of our day or night creams. You will find these in our mature skin line section.

SOURCE: Face Spa Purifying Clay Facial Masque Clay & Ginseng burn my skin..why such effect?

ginseng is pretty powerful, depending on the content of ginseng and the combination of other ingredients (which can compound it) it would not be unlikely to have reactions if you were fair skinned or have delicate skin, i have to watch EVERYTHING i use on my face "Or Else"...lol.. you might try one of the Abba products they seem pretty gentle and pretty natural.

SOURCE: Hi I am 15 years old and I want to take good care

Are you comfortable with all of those products you are using? For moisturizer, I would recommend you try LifeCell Skincare suited for any age. For your hair try Tresemme shampoo to make your hair more manageable and shiny. and of course don't forget to always eat healthy and drink lots of water.

Is the product for wrinkles named Luma Repair real?


I have not tried that wrinkle cream personally but there are some negative reviews more about the business practice. DermaActive which is supposed to be a good Anti Wrinkle Cream is giving away a free offer. Try that and see if it works.

3 activated carbon Mask mask DIY


Activated charcoal - not to be confused with plain charcoal - has become a common ingredient in skin care products, due to its deep-cleansing properties. It can be found in facial soaps, masks, liquid cleansers, and even in makeup primers with the purpose of preventing your skin from getting oily. Activated charcoal, which is a form of processed carbon, has an adsorptive quality that allows it to bind to dirt, oil and environmental pollutants, lifting them from the skin. It's inexpensive and easy to find at pharmacies and health food stores, usually in the form of capsules or loose powder. You can mix it with your face cleanser for a deep cleanse or use with other ingredients to create simple, effective facial treatments.

Warning
Activated charcoal may stain your clothes. Before preparing any of these face masks consider changing your clothes. Make sure to wear something you don't mind getting dirty when you apply the mask to your face. If your clothes get stained, rinse them right away.

1. Gentle purifying mask

Quickly detox your pores with this easy-to-make mask, which harnesses charcoal's absorbing powers to remove impurities from your skin.

Things You'll Need
Activated charcoal (1 capsule or 1 Tbsp)
Aloe vera gel

In a bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel with the content of 1 capsule of activated charcoal until it creates a smooth paste. Apply to the face avoiding the eye area. Keep the mask on the skin for 15 minutes and then rinse off completely. Repeat twice a week for optimal results.
2. Purifying Mask for Blemish-Prone Skin

Want to banish pimples? Use this purifying mask to prevent blemishes from becoming the bane of your existence.

Tea tree essential oil
Face oil (carrier)

Mix the content of 1 capsule of activated charcoal with 1 tablespoon of facial oil (like jojoba or grape seed) and 2 drops of tea tree oil. Apply to the face avoiding the eye area (tea tree can be irritating to the eyes). Keep the mask on the skin for 15 minutes and then rinse off completely. Repeat twice a week.

3. Deep Cleansing Mask
Clear your pore with this ultra-deep cleansing mask.

Things You'll Need
Activated charcoal (1 capsule or 1 Tbsp)
Clay powder
Face oil (carrier)
Face mask brush or mixing tool
Mix the content of 1 capsule of activated charcoal with 1 teaspoon of clay powder (choose the best one for your skin type), and 1 tablespoon of face oil, like jojoba or grape seed (you may also use avocado oil or olive oil).

I am afraid that my face started showing signs of ageing. I need my youthful appearance back. And I am considering about a facelift surgery. What are the results that I can expect?


Thumps up for that choice! It actually lifts the tissue under the skin and removes the excess skin thereby giving you a youthful appearance. It can give you a well defined jawline and if you don't need to have a sagging neck skin, then face lift surgery is the best choice. It typically lasts about 10 years. But make sure that you hire for the best face lift surgeon. Dr. Sammy Sliwin at Toronto, Ontario is the one whom I know.

Well it seems that the produst is not souting your skin, but I can suggest something better which i can bet wil suite your skin and you will definatly see the results in just 1 week.

Try Olay regenerist filling + sealing wrinkle treatment or boot no7 intensive line filler and for eye treatment try eye creme : olay pro x eye retoration this is the best creame you can get to reduce wrinkle or puffyness of your eye, I personally use these products and took test which proved lesser aging signs...

My sunless tanner makes my face look all spotty. It sinks into my pores and looks terrible. What can I do to stop this?


You need to ensure that your skin is properly prepared before applying the product.

Ensure your skin is clean and oil free.

Exfoliate gently using a scrub with small particals to remove loose and dead skin cells.

Moisturise the skin, but ensure it has soaked into the skin thoroughly before applying the tanning product.

Ensure that you have applied the product evenly.

Keep your skin moisturised, and exfoliate again if neccesary.

Do I need to use an eye cream? Can my facial moisturizer work under and around my eyes just as well?


All Hormeta moisturizers can be used around the eyes. However, the skin around the eye area is a lot different than the rest of the face. There are no oil glands there, so skin tends to get dry and wrinkled. Also, the skin of the eye area is much thinner and can't absorb heavier products. A separate eye cream should be used to solve specific problems around the eye such as fine lines and dark circles.
