"facing" your future from age 30 on

When we are in our 20's its simply about taking care of our skin. That means sunscreen, a weekly exfoliatation, drinking plenty of water and a healthy diet.

When we hit our 30's and early 40's unwanted skin issues start to appear. It's time for more active prevention or correction and a professional plan. This may include Radiesse to fill in lines or Botox to minimize facial muscle movement and prevent the lines from becoming more prominent and skin care products that protect, exfoliate and moisturize.

At around 40+, natural cell turnover begins to slow down ( that dull complexion we notice). You are likely to see skin that sags and deeper lines. Skin procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels or microdermabrasions can help restore skin texture. A "lift" at this stage of aging may require a browlift or eyelid tuck or facelift/necklift.

The lesson is this: You can safely slow down the aging process and hold off on more drastic measures if you take care of your skin early in life. Forward this blog to all your friends under 30! Let everyone in Topeka, Manhattan and Junction City in on the tips!

the "breast" implant choice for you in Topeka

So you have decided that you want to look great in that tank top or sundress this summer and you are going to see Dr. Peterson here in Topeka. Now you just have one more decision- saline or silicone breast implants. Both implants have a silicone shell, but one is filled with salt water (saline) and the other is filled with a thick gel that resembles the texture of human fat. Cohesive gel implants were FDA approved in 2006. Saline implants are filled during surgery so your surgical incision is only around 3cm. Gel implants are pre-filled, so your incision is around 5cm. During a consultation, we go over all your questions on saline or cohesive gel implants to help you make decision on which one is right for you! Don't forget to check our specials page. The Radiesse filler special expires 4/15/11.
