ME, PART TWO
Editor’s look Inside the world of scientific aging.
I can honestly say that I feel younger now at fifty three, than I did two decades ago, at thirty three. Back then, I was raising young children, building a new business, and working hard at keeping my relationship on track. It was utterly exhausting! I didn't have time for myself nor did I make “me” a priority. I was caught in the vortex of the superwoman syndrome. I tended to everyone else's needs - often working late, sleeping poorly, and neglecting my skin.

He listened to everything I had to say, asked me important questions about my lifestyle and what I wanted to improve upon. Cosmedica is one of those very safe places. Not only is the interior beautiful so you feel that you have arrived somewhere special, but the expert team at Cosmedica always makes you feel like you are one on a million; a rarity in today's world. In part one (NICHE summer 2017 issue), I talked openly about the first two treatments I had - Botox and Coolsculpting. In this issue, I am excited to share my experiences with Ultherapy and Dermal Fillers.
I continue to take Glisodin skin nutrient supplements daily, which alleviates fluid retention and improves the clarity of my skin. Also, I cannot live without my Skinceuticals products! Even if you don't try dermal fillers or Botox, or your skin never needs laser treatment, do yourself (and your skin) a favor and check out this advanced skin care collection. It will change the way you think about morning and evening skin care.
