Am I Too Old to Get Work Done?

If you’re in your 60s, 70s, or 80s (and beyond), you might have started wondering: “Is there a point when I’m I too old to get work done?” I truly believe age is relative, really! I know some 60-year-olds (eek, that’s younger then me!) who act and look much older and it’s all about how they feel! I also know some 70+-year-olds that look 50 (and not because they’ve had any kind of treatment). Much of how we age depends on how we’ve taken care of ourselves—but that’s a discussion for another time!

While the answer to the question: “Am I too old?” is a very personal one, what is common are the changes you might be seeing as you get older, or as you are “blessed with more years.” Things like volume loss in the face–which can contribute to marionette lines, loss of cheek volume, crows feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. But regardless of your age, these can be softened and reduced—shaving off some of those years.

Plus, you’re never too old to get work done so long as you’re healthy and you feel like you want something done! Bearing in mind that some auto-immune diseases, or if someone is undertaking chemotherapy, or if you’re on a blood thinner (like Coumadin) will prevent or limit our ability to safely treat you. Otherwise, go for it!

That’s what my 86, nearly 87-year-old mother-in-law did! I’ve shared previously about her experience with Botox and her friends’ reactions when she returned home last September! She was sold! When she was here over Christmas, Dr. Madsen gave her some volume loss replacement with the Juvederm family of products (facial fillers).  I think you will agree to look at her pictures below that changes are obvious!  Best of all, she feels better!

So, there you have it! How you feel about aging is very personal! I’ve heard women say they’ve decided to age gracefully and take what comes and that’s fine too! I’ve also heard ladies say they will age “gracefully” but fight the evidence as long as possible:) Only you can decide what’s best for you!  If you want to shave off some of those years in evidence, we’ll be glad to assist you, give us a call for a free consultation to look at your options! And above all, together we and be thankful for another year!!

P.S. Here’s a testimonial from another 79-year-old client:

“I get Botox and only my daughter-in-law and daughters know I get this treatment.  My son came to my house to help me and told me: “Mom, you don’t look 79 years old, you don’t have one wrinkle!”  I laughed and said, “It must be my night cream!” (wink wink).
