Aging is an exciting journey of learning with both highs and lows. For most, we enjoy the wisdom and confidence that come with aging; however, for some, it’s hard to watch the signs of age show up on our faces and skin. Most of us feel much younger than we really are and when we look in the mirror, we want to see a resemblance of that youthful self.
Defying the skin’s aging process is becoming much easier these days. By understanding what’s happening and by reversing or preventing the aging process, you can maintain your timeless beauty.
Beauty and health start on the inside:
Skin Care needs: Collagen Restoration, Exfoliation and Protection
Under the skin changes lead to Sagging Skin:
Sagging skin not only happens because of collagen loss in the skin itself, but also due to under the skin changes that happen to everyone with aging. As we age, we lose bone, fat, and muscle that support the skin and facial structures. As these structures shrink, we notice a more tired look to the face with eyes, mouth, and jowls drooping downward. It’s important to understand that under the skin changes cannot be corrected with treatments like skincare products or topical skin treatments. So, for your most timeless look, you’ll need to not only follow the above recommendations, but you’ll also need to restore the volume that has been lost under the skin with dermal fillers. I prefer the more natural, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to restore facial structures and to lift and refresh your look. In the right hands, non-surgical facial rejuvenation can restore your youthful appearance, without anyone knowing you had a procedure done.
Age defying, timeless beauty can be achieved with the right knowledge, products and procedures. Let us help you achieve your goals.

Hello beauties!! Let’s have a little skin care education today and talk about a popular ingredient many of my patients have been asking me about lately. It’s called niacinamide, pronounce (ni-ah-cin-ah-mide). It can be found in many foods such as meat, fish and milk, green vegetables and beans. But the real craze is its presence in lotions, creams, sunscreens and facial serums. It comes with a lot of tout and patients are all too excited to tell me they have purchased products with this ingredient, even if they don’t know just what properties this ingredient has! So, let’s discuss.
The truth about sunscreen!
Facts and Myths about one of the most important products you use should be using EVERYDAY!
There are some very popular truths and misconceptions about sunscreen. Let's clear some of those up today!!!
1. Sunscreen is not always necessary
Many people think sunscreen is only needed on very sunny days. If I can't see the sun, do I really need sunscreen?? The answer is yes. If you are outside, you are being exposed to UV rays. Wear that sunscreen. And don't forget about your body. The tops of your shoulders, arms, and chest need just as much sun protection as your face.
Safety & Sun Protection
Living in Arizona means that we are in the sun almost every day of the year, and summertime activities, vacations, picnics and pool parties mean we are in the sun even more. But regular exposure to the sun can wreak havoc on the skin, leading to unsightly brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, large pores, saggy skin, wrinkles and skin cancers. To prevent these changes, a broad-spectrum sunblock needs to be applied daily.
