my ultimate mother’s day gift

I had to face it. My face.

I could go on about how amazing the treatments were. Or, I could just show you what my face looked like before and after!

Taking care of my skin was never a huge priority in my life, until I took a close look in the mirror and gasped. The evidence of my age was creeping across my face as dark circles under my eyes, wrinkles, dry spots, irritated red patches, and sunspots. After I got over the shock of how bad I looked, I decided to get some help.

Since it’s Mother’s Day, I decided to treat myself to some visual improvements. Sure, I could buy another pair of shoes, but people spend more time looking at my face than my shoes. I went to Serenity MedSpa in Burlingame to see general surgeon and owner Dr. Lisa Kang. Since she is a mother and a doctor, I trust her professional opinion. She had a simple regimen for my skin and it was pretty painless!

The treatments I received:

  • Botox

    It relaxes the muscles that generate creases on my face, so my skin stays smoothers. I got Botox around my eyes to get rid of my crow’s feet, wrinkles, and frown lines.

  • BBL BroadBand Light therapy 

    It is a laser therapy that firms and evens the tones and texture of my skin. It did a great job removing my sun damage spots and healing my irritated patches of skin.

  • PRF Treatment 

    This treatment is a bit Sci-Fi. My blood was removed and put in a machine where my platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is separated from my blood. Then the PRF is injected into my dark circles under my eyes. The purpose is to encourage my body to build its own collagen. PFR has platelets, fibrin, and white blood cells, which help with healing, collagen production and improved elasticity.

My skin looks amazing and people come up to me and asked me if I just got back from vacation. “Your skin is glowing!” Is something I hear regularly now.

So, if you are trying to figure out what to get mom for her Mother’s Day, I suggest you set up a consultation at Serenity MedSpa and discuss all the different options for making mom feel and look beautiful. Give them a call at 415-781-9200.

Serenity has two locations: San Francisco and Burlingame.
