A few years ago I changed my face dermatologist because of “production line” appointments but they haven’t taken me off of their email list.
Not a problem. I no longer use their products but I like to see their specials and what’s new. It’s one way to keep abreast of the fabulous new products that are guaranteed to take years off of your life (and your pocketbook).
I received their “holiday special” this week. You can get any of their laser treatments at 20% off if you have them done between Dec. 22 and 31. These are the skin resurfacing type of treatments that take a layer of skin off your face.
Listed side effects include possible oozing or crusting or prolonged erections (oops! that’s from another product!). After two weeks, you should expect to look gorgeous.
Umm…am I missing something here? Most women who would spend money on these kinds of treatments do so to look good for events. Would they want their face puffy and bruised or sore through the holiday season?
Women who don’t get invited to parties don’t care about wrinkles and spots. So who is the targeted audience here?
I considered throwing a party to see who would come with camouflage makeup but that degree of research seemed like too much work. Besides, after a wine or two, I would forget that the party was a research project. I would throw caution to the wind and have a good time. Dang!
Then again, I would have to invite people I don’t know to get a good basis for the project. I can’t imagine any of my female friends taking advantage of this deal but I will be checking for camouflage makeup with the occasional oozing during this holiday season.
Maybe women aren’t the target.
I never really look at men that closely. One of my friends is convinced that a male acquaintance had a face lift. He is an attractive man my age but I can’t tell. Maybe he just has good genes with few wrinkles or maybe he did the deed.
I remember he had back surgery. Maybe there was a two-fer.
Perhaps if I plan a party with mostly men and don’t drink any wine, I could research this better. Then again, there are more women my age alive then men. Back to the wine.
I am over thinking this. Next time I see the aesthetician, I will just ask.
So what stupid things to you over think?
