Real Housewife Shannon Storms Beador is preparing for the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion by getting what’s perhaps the world’s most extreme facial. The reality TV star posted on Instagram, documenting her skin’s recovery after getting a CO2 laser treatment at the Cosmeticare facility in Newport Beach, California, performed by Tannaz Razavi, RN, better known as “The Vagina Whisperer” on RHOC, or Nurse Titi.
First, Razavi put numbing cream all over Shannon’s face, so she wouldn’t feel any pain from the laser. She took her blood and centrifuged it—separated it into plasma and erythrocytes, or red blood cells—so she could rub the platelet-rich plasma all over Shannon’s face to help speed up the healing process.

The reunion is coming… so went to @cosmeticare_ for a CO2 laser. Have never had anything like this done before. Here is a chronology of the results. Had a week down time. No make up on the last photo. Let me know your thoughts! ❤️ Go to my story for video and details about the procedure!
“We’re disrupting the epidermis and stimulating the dermis,” Razavi said as she moved the laser across Shannon’s forehead on the reality star’s Instagram Stories. (FYI: The epidermis is the outermost layer of skin, and the dermis is the layer below it.) “We’re getting the sun damage to peel off, we’re stimulating collagen for some tightening, we’re getting rid of the fine lines…”
“I need it all!” Shannon blurted out, her eyes covered with protective goggles.
“…ironing out that tablecloth we call our skin,” Razavi continued.
After the treatment, Shannon’s face was extremely red, and it looked as if someone had peeled off a layer of her skin, but after two weeks of red blotchiness, her face healed nicely. “Have never had anything like this done before. Here is a chronology of the results. Had a week down time,” she wrote in the caption. Well, she definitely looks RHOC reunion-ready now.
