It's Official, I have been at FreshSkin 1 year, I truly am a different person!

When I first started working with Dr. Josie, I wasn’t all together sold on anti-aging techniques, so I started out slow……Our esthetician recommended I have a Mandelic Acid Peel by Glytone to reduce the redness on my cheeks. I wasn’t even aware I had redness on my cheeks.  Was there any downtime? No, it is a type of peel that literally works from the inside out and really only left my skin looking pretty great, so I had 3 more as the weeks went on.  I had the Visia analysis  which takes pictures of your face to analyze your skin to the point of seeing deep sun damage, wrinkles, redness, potential cancer, texture, you name it, it told me some things that were good but mostly made me aware of what was in store if I didn’t start taking better care of my skin. Dr. Josie got a hold of me one day soon after and said, “Lets do a little BOTOX around your eyes” Hmmm BOTOX?? OK, lets do it. Next came medical level skincare instead of purchasing over the counter products. Broad Band Light or BBL treatments came next which are used to stimulate new, perfect skin cells that eventually replace the damaged cells!.  My face was looking so great my friends were asking me if I had been having fillers, which I had not. I really liked my appearance and I felt younger and not so “tired” looking, but I FELT tired, couldn’t lose weight for love or money and the hot flashes were keeping me up at night so I asked Dr. Josie about Bio Identical Hormones for post menopausal women. She told me that not only would it eliminate the menopausal symptoms but would also enhance skin texture, so I did it  and that is when it happened, I woke up, looked in the mirror and that middle aged women who usually stared back at me was gone.  Since then, I have recently had Artefill, a collagen filler, injected to rid myself of those unwanted dark circles and hollowness under my eyes and also to slightly enhance my cheek bones which, as we all know, go south after a certain age. I have to say, even I think I look 10 to 15 years younger.

Let me go back to the belly fat. I can’t lose weight and keep it off no matter what I do so I have just given up. Well,  Dr. Ryan and Dr. Josie came to the rescue on this… I am now on Sermorelin which stimulates the pituitary gland to increase the volume of HGH normally produced by this gland but has become sluggish as we age. It is NOT HGH or Human Growth Hormone.  It is a composition of many amino acids that are responsible for stimulating the pituitary gland to produce your own HGH! I feel unbelievable! I have started to lose belly fat weight after just one month without doing anything… Actually, I have purposely eaten guilty foods to find out if it works and guess what…. It does! I sleep a full 8 to 9 hours a night without ever waking, my energy, coupled with the, bio-identical hormones, is better than what it was in my early 40,s. Definitely call the office to get more information on this…. I am so excited about the results!

I almost forgot, Dr. Ryan put my husband on an anti-inflammatory eating program that literally allowed my husband to not have to take his heart burn medication that he has been taking everyday for years.  He also lost 8 pounds in the first 10 days and the best part was that he ate regular food which included mostly protein, green, leafy vegetables, berries and Greek yogurt. Now when he cheats a bit, he knows all he has to do is get back on the anti-inflammatory eating program and he’s good to go.

Our hair laser is soon to arrive for hair restoration, I’ll keep you informed.
