Dr. Gaboriau’s Insight on Beauty

The 40s are the new 30s! Some would say that the 40s are the new 20s! Regardless of the statement, the reality is that women and men have never felt as young as they do today and they have a strong desire to look as beautiful as the feel on the inside. The key is not to look like you’re in your ‘20s; it’s about embracing your age and incorporating some solutions in order to meet your specific needs and desired results.

Before Botox...

An effective daily skin care regime is the essence of beauty. It is important to select medical grade products that are formulated with effective ingredients. Your regime should also include a daily sunscreen to keep away those age spots as studies have shown they can add up to 10 years to one’s perceived age. 

... After Botox

With time, wrinkles are more apparent and we tend to lose volume in our faces;"marionette lines" start to develop, lips become thinner and cheeks less perky.Injectables such as Botox®, Xeomin® and Dysport® represent a great way to relax the frown lines, which can make us look severe,raise the eyebrows and erase crow’s feet.Fillers, such as Radiesse® and Belotero® can also be quite helpful in rejuvenating one’s volume and appearance.

Before Liposuction...

Although not for everyone, plastic surgery is sometimes the only option available to achieve specific changes. For instance, despite healthy eating and regular exercise, it might remain impossible to shed those last few extra pounds. If all efforts have failed, Laser Assisted Liposuction could be an effective option. This technique effectively removes fat as well as tightens the skin. Faster and more tolerable than traditional liposuction, this innovative technology can slim and reshape many areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving the body contour and proportion. And ultimately, it can enhance one’s appearance and self-image.

The most important thing is to find an experienced physician to discuss your beauty goals and determine which options are the right ones for you. When performed by a professional, these options can provide a more youthful look while rendering natural, beautiful results. For more information, please see www.sammamishfacial.com.
