As we age, it is common to explore skin rejuvenation procedures that help to maintain a youthful appearance. Neuromodulators (such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) and Dermal Fillers (such as Juvederm, Voluma, Belotero, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, and Radiesse) help to improve volume loss, fine lines and wrinkles.

From time to time, I like to switch up my regimen and try out different products. It helps me learn about other skincare lines besides what I use in treatment and I can better recommend products to my patients. I’ve never learned well from reading alone, so I have to get hands on and see, smell, touch, taste (ok, maybe not taste) the products to decide how I feel about them.
