I Feel Like Cinderella

· And Dr. Lori is my fairy godmother. ·

Transitions with Dr. Lori co-winner Judi Kirkpatrick.

Wallingford, Connecticut: Dr. Lori Greenwald visits Judi’s home to see the amazing results in person, all this while cameras are rolling.

Dr. Lori Greenwald tells Transitions co-winner Judi Kirkpatrick, “I can see the confidence in you is back. I see the person you were before you had cancer, before your life changed in an instant. I see Judi, not cancer-survivor Judi, but Mayor Judi, Mother Judi, Just Judi.  I am so honored to have played a role in your Transition with me.  You are such a good person, down to your core, and you deserved this pick-me-up, and I am a better person for knowing you. 

Judi’s Transition with Dr. Lori started five months ago when she asked for Dr. Lori’s help to erase the painful reminders from her battle with cancer. Judi survived a rare form of cancer but ultimately, the chemotherapy which saved her life (arsenic) prematurely aged her. She wanted Dr. Lori’s help to look and feel her best for her daughter’s wedding in June.

“You’ve changed my life and I will never forget what you did for me,” Judi said. “I feel like I’m Cinderella at the ball and you are my fairy godmother.”

Dr. Lori Greenwald Of Vanishing Veins And Vivesse Med Spa, talks with Judi about “Life After Transitions” –The Journey To Today.

Judi underwent several procedures to soften the impact from her chemotherapy including Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing, Juvashape, IPL, Botox,  Filler, a series of anti-aging facials and the best skin care available. Judi also had her painful veins taken care of by Dr. Lori Greenwald, voted one of Connecticut’s most trusted vascular surgeons. Follow her journey and see photos from her procedures below.

Judi, whose teeth were badly stained from medicine, says she feels even younger now with her brighter smile and her Transitions medical makeover.

Fractional Resurfacing for Dramatically Younger Skin

Fractional Resurfacing for Dramatically Younger Skin


The Pixel laser treatment is a procedure and does require some down-time. Two days after Judi’s second Pixel laser treatment, her skin is still red. However, after five days, she says the red is usually completely gone.

One of the important treatments that Judi is receiving is Fractional Resurfacing performed with a machine called Pixel.  We want to give you more information on this revolutionary treatment. Be sure to follow us on Instagram for all the behind-the-scene transition videos.

Fractional resurfacing is a laser treatment.  It works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations in the skin. These microchannels are only as deep as a few sheets of paper but they cause micro-injury deeper in the skin than is seen with most cosmetic medical treatments.  The skin is affected all the way down to the deep layers.

Your skin reacts to this injury by initiating a healing process.  The healing process causes collagen to regrow and remodel.  It also helps strip away the top most layer of the skin (the epidermis).  The new collagen tightens the skin so it sags less.  Additionally, a whole new layer of more youthful skin is laid down.  This combined effect leads to truly dramatic effects that are hard to achieve with any other non-surgical technique.

Fractional resurfacing improves your skin’s texture and tone to fight fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne scars. It has the following effects:

  • Clears sun-damaged skin
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Shrinks the appearance of pores
  • Fills in acne scars
  • Blends uneven pigmentation

Pixel is a deep treatment, deeper than most.  So, it can be more uncomfortable than many of the other treatments at Vivesse.  We use numbing cream prior to the procedure and it is tolerable for almost all patients.  After the treatment, your skin will probably appear red as if you had a sunburn.

There is no downtime that is necessary after the treatment but some clients like to take a few days off from work because of the redness and peeling.  That’s why it’s a good treatment to have at the end of the week so these few days will include the weekend when most people don’t work.

Judi Gets Her First Pixel Laser Treatment.


Judi is a survivor! This former small town mayor from Texas beat a rare form of cancer but her chemotherapy, Arsenic, prematurely aged her.  As one of the winners of Dr. Lori Greenwald’s Transitions medical make-over, Judi will undergo a series of treatments to help her escape that painful reminder of her battle with cancer from her reflection.  For other men and women  who are looking to reverse the signs of aging and want a truly dramatic response, laser skin resurfacing is the way to go. It works deep in the underlying tissues to fight the signs of aging. Laser resurfacing lifts away years from your face by stimulating the growth of new collagen. This modern laser therapy gives the skin a youthful and refreshed look with a glow that simply can’t be achieved with milder treatments. Despite its dramatic effects on skin damage, fractional resurfacing is comfortable and affordable, involves downtime of only a few days and is quick to perform.
