Maintenance or Repair – Which Do You Really Need?
If your skin has good texture, even color, very little sagging around the eyelids or jawline, and few or no wrinkles, then you just need to use state of the art products and consider yearly maintenance lasers/radiofrequency, like a yearly Fraxel and a yearly Thermage. If over 50, consider adding a yearly Sculptra treatment to maintain facial volume.
If you have texture problems, blotchiness (red/brown or both), sagging, or wrinkles, and if you really want to make a difference in your skin, consider investing 5-15 thousand dollars over a year or two to fix those problems. Then start into maintenance mode mentioned above. That’s a lot of money, but think about how much you’ve spent on your cars over the years. You spend way more time in your skin!!!
