I had intended to write this post sharing follow up pictures after my series of four Morpheus 8 treatments several months ago, but Covid threw a wrench in my plans as it has done with so many things this year!
You’ll remember that I visited a local med spa in January 2019 to see what I could do to freshen up my skin and correct years of sun damage. Southern Pines Aesthetics & Laser Institute (SPALI) recommended a series of treatments and I wrote about my IPL treatment here and my Morpheus8 treatments here. If you’re looking for detailed information about what to expect with either treatment, I share everything about the procedures and recovery in those posts.
If you’re local to SPALI, just mention 11 Magnolia Lane when you book your free consultation and they’ll give you a 10% discount and a $50 post-procedure product voucher!
Today, before I share my before and after photos, I wanted to show you a few photos of their beautiful new office on Juniper Lake Road. It’s decorated in blush and gold and is so relaxing and beautiful.
As someone who appreciates decorating details, I noticed all the special touches the team put into making their new office lovely.
They are offering a modified menu of services right now in compliance with North Carolina’s reopening guidelines. I stopped in just a few weeks before we moved and they have a great system in place.
Now onto my treatment photos. You’ll remember that I did a total of four Morpheus treatments, and one of the benefits of the procedure is that your skin continues to improve for several months afterward. In the photo collage below you can see me before any treatments, after two treatments (about six months after I started), and then after all four treatments (about a year after I started).
I can tell by my droopy eyes in the last “after” photos that I am completely exhausted (we were right in the middle of packing out for our move to Germany and the stress level was sky-high!) but other than the sleepy no-makeup look, I’m still very pleased with how my skin looks after a year. My overall tone is more even and the sunspots I had are gone, and my chin is smoother. (All of these photos are with zero filter, of course)
I have no problem with looking my age, but I also want to look the best that I can for my age, if that makes sense.
Bottom line is do I think it was worth it and would I do it again? Yes, definitely!
Please let me know if you have any questions I didn’t answer in this post; I’ll be happy to answer them. And if you’re local, be sure to give the wonderful ladies at SPALI a call!
