Put your best face forward

For the past two weeks I’ve been interviewing some of my fascinating friends regarding their professions for my Friday posts. This week I chose to interview Leslie Daoust, owner and operator of Cosmetic Laser Advantage.

I’m honestly not that unhappy with my appearance. Most people act truly surprised to learn I’m in my fifties. I do have smile wrinkles, but hey, they were caused by laughter, and I’m not interested in erasing “joy” from my face. However, I have had more people ask me if I’m upset or mad in the last few years. My skin is slightly sagging around my mouth giving the appearance of a frown. I wouldn’t mind “fixing” that so that my outside reflects what I’m feeling inside.

I met with Leslie, and as I started talking with her, I knew this was something I would like to have done, but was sure the price would be a deal breaker. When I found out that the price was similar to a facial at a high-end salon, the meeting changed from an interview to a treatment session!

Next week I will go into detail about what I had done during those two hours, but today I just want to say how pleased I am with the results. The droopy skin around my mouth is lifted, and my skin feels fantastic – I kept touching it all evening! 

Leslie also provided some information on very low-cost treatments I could do at home involving baking soda and aspirin, which I will share next week.

Living with *finesse is not about looking younger, but looking and feeling healthy. Thanks, Leslie, for helping me make that happen!
