When Shahs of Sunset beauty entrepreneur Mercedes "MJ" Javid isn't working on her lipstick line, she's having fun switching up her look — from platinum blonde bobs to bangs to red carpet-ready bike shorts. But there's one thing she's been putting off, and the newlywed just explained to her followers why she visited aesthetic nurse practitioner Jen Tinelli, NP-C at Marina Plastic Surgery.
"This summer I decided to finally address some of my SKinsecurities which include keloid scars, sun damage, and discoloration," MJ wrote on Instagram. "JEN TINELLi, thank you for making it so easy, simple, friendly, comfortable for me. I always assumed results would either take too long, or be too pricey. I never got around to it. Now that I have, I’m so happy and want to share it with anyone who has #SKinsecurities like I did."
In the Instagram video, MJ explained there were so many treatment options for her, telling a fan in the comments that they used a "topical cream that peels gradually" to treat her sun damage.
In another video on Instagram, she elaborated on her keloid scars. "I got a minor breast reduction a few years back and now I'm stuck with these major scars," she said. "Obviously it makes me feel not good naked and less womanly. We're going to do a combination of lasers and injections."
Tinelli explained in the video this plan will help with scars that are a little bit raised, and that "the lasers will help even out the color and texture as well." MJ is already seeing results too. "I’m just super happy there are options that have helped me so quickly," she said in an Instagram comment.
