Aging can be tough, especially in American society. I'm really thankful for the time I spent in Europe! It truly gave me a healthier perspective on growing older.

Although I don't like to get caught up in all of the anti-aging hype, I do have to admit that I have noticed some changes in my skin in the past 5 years. Like the deep lines in my forehead, they just don't smooth out quite like they used to.
Envejecer puede ser duro, especialmente en la sociedad americana. ¡Doy gracias por el tiempo que pasé en Europa! Me dio una perspectiva más sano en cuanto al tema.

Aunque no me gusta seguir con todas las tendencias anti-edad, admito que sí he notado cambios en la piel estos últimos 5 años. Por ejemplo, las líneas de expresión en la frente se notan más y más.

EN A few months back, I came across Micropen, aka Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy  It's a fairly new aesthetic medicine to treat the appearance of fine lines, scars and skin tone.

Remember those forehead wrinkles I mentioned previously? Well, I was curious as to how the procedure might soften the lines or how it might even help clear up my skin's redness.

Images Med Spa explained that the treatment would essentially create controlled micro-injuries to the skin so as to produce more collagen and elastin - which would result in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance.
ES Hace unos meses, aprendí de Micropen, aka Terapia de Colágeno Epidérmico. Es una medicina de estética nueva para tratar la apariencia de las arrugas, las cicatrices y el tono de piel. 

¿Os recordáis de esas arrugas en la frente que mencioné previamente? Pues, tenía curiosidad de ver cómo el tratamiento podría suavizarlas y quizás ayudar también con el rojez de la piel. 

Images Med Spa me explicó que el tratamiento crea unas mini heridas controladas para producir más colágeno y elastina - lo cuál resulta en un epidermis más grueso con una apariencia más suave.

EN I won't lie and say it was painless. It hurt like hell. For me, it was comparable to laser hair removal - on my face.

Despite the temporary pain, I will say that the results were pretty awesome. It helped smooth out some of my deep forehead wrinkles and some of the red skin tones.

Kat says that the treatments build on each other and each visit improves elasticity as well as the look of wrinkles. She recommends a series of 2-3 treatments every 6-8 weeks.
ES No voy a mentir y decir que no dolió. Para mí fue tan incómodo que la depilación de laser - pero en la cara en vez del ingles.

A pesar del dolor temporal, sí admito que los resultados fueron impresionantes. Suavizó algunas de las líneas de la frente y un poco del rojez.

Kat dice que los efectos de los tratamientos son progresivos y cada visita mejora la elasticidad de la piel y las arrugas. Ella recomienda una serie de 2-3 tratamientos cada 6-8 semanas.

EN When I sat down to write this post, I honestly struggled with how my readers might take it.

I understand why these types of treatments can be a little controversial, but I personally believe that a woman should do whatever makes her happy.

If plastic surgery and fillers do that for you, then by all means, do it (in a healthy way). And by the same token, if you prefer to keep things au natural, I totally support that too. All I've gotta say is, "do you boo."

As for treatments like these, you wanna make sure that you're in the hands of highly trained professionals like Kat and the staff at Images Med Spa!
ES Cuando empecé a escribir esta entrada, me puse a pensar en cómo mis lectores lo iban a tomar.

Entiendo por qué estos tratamientos son un poco controvertidos, pero creo que cada mujer debe hacer lo que le da la gana para ser feliz.

Si la cirugia plástica y el Botox te hace feliz, pues entonces, házlo (de manera saludable). Y por esa misma vena, si prefieres dejar todo de manera natural, mi respuesta es, "adelante guapas."

Cuando se trata de tratamientos como éste, ¡es importante buscar servicios de profesionales bien preparados como Kat y el equipo de Images Med Spa!
