A Pregnancy-Safe Anti-Aging Cosmetic Treatment

You guys know that I’m a big advocate of non-invasive treatments for anti-aging, particularly laser treatments. I’ve discussed them at length on the blog before, and I love them because you see nearly instantaneous results with little to no downtime. I’m excited to share my experience of a treatment that I recently had with Dr. Lancer, a renowned dermatologist at his clinic in Beverly Hills. I’ve had a visible vein under my eye for ages, and it’s something that’s always bothered me. Though small, the vein was really dark and often refused to be covered by concealer. It was most noticeable when I was super tired or jet lagged (which is often!). I remember not being able to cover it at all during Fashion Weeks in previous years, and feeling very self conscious of seeing it in photos. There have even been plenty of people in the past who tried to wipe it off my face because they thought it was a mascara smudge on my skin! I’d finally had enough, so I started looking into treatment options and discovered Dr. Lancer and his undereye laser treatment.

Dr. Lancer himself suffered severe burns over 10% of his body after falling into a vat of near boiling water when he was very young, and the experience of recovering from this cultivated his belief in restoration, rather than alteration, as the best way to obtain beautiful skin. I think it’s this approach and his super-skills that make him such a favorite with celebrities – he regularly treats A-listers, being Victoria Beckham’s go-to for facials in LA and taking care of the skin of celebrities like Sandra Bullock.

When I was sitting in his office about to have the vein zapped, Dr. Lancer put me at ease. Once I lay down on the bed ready to have the vein disappear, he zapped the skin about 6 times with the laser – which felt a little bit like having an elastic band pinged against my skin. It wasn’t exactly relaxing and blissful, but it also wasn’t that bad, and it was over very quickly! Mackenzie couldn’t believe how much of a baby I was when I showed him the camera footage I took of me having the vein zapped because it was such a simple procedure! If you would also like to have a laugh at me being a drama queen, you can watch it in my in my recent LA vlog here.

The little bit of pain was well worth it anyway as I couldn’t believe the results I saw almost immediately after the procedure – the vein looked so much lighter and less visible. At a follow-up appointment two weeks later Dr Lancer reassessed the area and decided that it needed a few more zaps (I tried to be less of a baby this time!). A few weeks on and I’m honestly amazed at how much lighter the vein appears, and even when I’m tired! I can definitely see why so many A-listers and people in the public eye trust Dr Lancer to look after their skin – I don’t think I could have been in better hands. And better yet, the treatment was 100% safe for my baby as well!

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
