Can we briefly talk about some of the nonsurgical paths? What actually makes a difference? What is actually worth people’s money and pain threshold?
For me, it’s really important that a product works but doesn’t do something negative to you in the long run. It may look great short-term, but I just don’t want it to be harmful for you long-term. We’re constantly trying to chase this extra excess fat in our face when we’re younger, and then when we get older, we really need that excess fat. It’s really important to keep that in mind.
I love radio-frequency technologies. I’m a really big fan of Morpheus. I always tell people, “It is a tool just like a scalpel is a tool. You give 10 surgeons a scalpel, and you’re going to get 10 different face-lifts.” It’s really dependent on the provider. The other thing that I think is amazing and kind of undervalued is micro-needling. Old-fashioned micro-needling stimulates collagen, safe on all skin types. If you do it regularly, you’ll definitely see an improvement in skin tone. It’s not going to tighten, but the healthy appearance of skin is important.
