I really want to have IPL treatments done. I'm just affraid I'll be red as a beat. Guess I'll have to plan for a few days off before I make the attempt

Hyaluronic Acid Filler is the great! Had a lower face lift but still needed a boost; doctor injected Juvederm under my eyes and at the starting of folds from my lips downwards. OMGoodness! What an extra instant boost it gave my lower Facelift plus liposuction for the beginning of heavy jowls. Every year just have to have touch up under my eyes (well worth it; prefer this over an eye lift). Had two shots of Dysport aka Botox injections to lift my eyes a bit and had the beginning signs of the double lines between my brows. I don't need the Dysport or botox so will just probably will only continue getting the Juverderm XC injections. My face looks as I had a total face lift! Feel so happy than I did two months ago! Now I can look in the mirror once again and feel pretty/beautiful like I did 15 years ago! loving life. Now, I can take a close up pic from my cellular phone and I look good (no jowls or hollow under eyes). Feel confident and recommend to both men and women of any age. Paid $8,500.00 to take a total of 15 years off my looks... maintenance will cost me approximately $2,400.00 a year! Well worth it to feel and look young without the plastic look. Natural looking. But, you really need to get a plastic surgeron who is also an artist (sculpture) or you will look flat, have bumps where you don't want them! My doctor in Glen Burnie is an artist and so happy I went to him. He was in the New Beauty magazine twice!
