What I'm Doing to Prepare for the Big 50
What I'm doing to prepare for the big 50
Though it's still several years away (gulp), I've been thinking about where I want to be and how I want to look when I turn 50. I don't feel I look my age and want to keep it that way. In doing some research, I have reached out to Contempo Aestetics in Pasadena for a consultation. I am sold on the thought of having my non invasive treatments personally performed by a board certified physician and am excited to get started.
I will be sharing my journey, follow along if you like and ask questions. You too might be interested in knowing about the latest non invasive treatments available. I will share here in a follow up post after the treatment has been decided and started.
A little background : I have a pretty busy schedule running around chasing my girl. I know there is more that I can do to help keep my appearance up besides eating healthy, exercise and getting lots of rest.
I've changed the amount of toxins I intentionally use in my daily life. Removed several with easy by switching to organic make up and chemical free skin care as well as ditching aluminum filled deodorants. Little changes here and there can make a difference I feel while setting an important example for my young daughter. I ditched soda last year and have changed the products I use to clean my home to more plant based ones.
In reading up about the many non surgical options out there I am curious to see which ones I would be a good candidate for. I'm not interested in have some drastic change where I wouldn't recognize myself, instead I'm looking for more of a preventative treatment. There is a large and varied menu of services to choose from at Contempo Aestetics all non surgical.
- Botox ~ which I had tried before for my migraines and loved the results
- Dermal Fillers~ Radiesse, Juvederm and Belotero to restore volume
- Chemical Peel ~ For anti aging
- Velashape III~ Non Invasive Body Contouring
- Elos Plus Hair Removal~ for small to large areas
- Elos Plus for Fotofacial~To help sun damage and hyper-pigmented areas
- Elos Plus Sublative~ For the treatment of scars and textural irregularities
- Kybella~ to improve the appearance of the fat underneath the chin "AKA" double chin
I have a couple of procedures in mind that I can't wait to discuss with Dr. Rachel in the hopes that I am a good candidate. I'm super excited and will be honest in my review of the services I receive. I know I'm not alone, men as well as women are getting preventative treatments more and more these days. I hope to shed some light on several of the above mentioned options, as many are very new to the market, as well as recovery times and maintenance if any. Wish me luck!
