There is no magic wand. Many people would like to improve their appearance or enhance their looks but want no “down time” or invasive procedures. Unfortunately the creams, lotions, non-ablative resurfacing procedures, or other “quick fix” promises either do not work at all or give very temporary improvements. In order to achieve lasting results the skin or (other tissue) has to be “invaded” to a degree that will cause change in the bio-mechanical nature of the tissue and anatomy. This process invariably causes some form of injury requiring healing and recovery. It is in the very act of healing that permanent changes take place. The price of all good and permanent results is the personal sacrifice of recovery time from the necessary inflammation (healing) that takes place.
