    I wish we could all- me especially— just be content with wrinkles and all that goes with the aging process. We can’t look or be 25 anymore. Gifts such as wisdom and gratitude come with getting older. These shells are passing away- rapidly! – so I try to focus on what is not deteriorating by the day.

      Kathy, I totally agree with you! It’s much more important what is on the inside. Frankly, I don’t even want to look 25. My hope is to not look 65 when I am 55. ;-).

    I try to focus on what isn’t rapidly deteriorating ( our faces and bodies } because we can’t control it and we aren’t meant to look 25 in our fifties!

      Katherin, I agree we are not meant to look 25 nor do I want to be 25. I love being 52 and I am embracing every year. Thank you for reading and commenting.

    My aunt wants to age gracefully and have a younger looking and firmer skin. It was explained here that she can try various treatments like botox. Moreover, it’s highly recommended to go to trusted dermatologists for quality dermatology services.

    That’s interesting to learn that it is recommended to get Botox every 3 months. My wife and I are starting to notice wrinkles in our faces, so we have been wondering if there is anything in our budget we could do about it. We should speak with a dermatologist to learn more about what we can do about our wrinkles.

      Hi Larry,
      Thanks for reading. I have been doing what she says and it really has helped me.

      Yes, I agree with Larry. That’s never been a recommendation I’ve heard from any practitioner I’ve ever met. Start with less units and over time you can modify that. The muscle has memory, so over time you will need less and less. Go for a natural filler, that dissolves over time, and can be undone if necessary. PRFM is a healthy alternative that uses your own blood for skin rejuvenation.

    You’re beautiful and I do love your look, however, it’s perplexing that in your 30s you felt the need for botox. I don’t believe that botox should be in the category of aging gracefully. I didn’t feel the need for anything until after 50, and even then it’s been non-invasive moderate touches. Too much change at once does have an emotional and psychological effect as well. Natural fillers such as PRFM along with micro needling with RF, seems like a better, healthier way to go, especially for mature skin. Empirical studies have proven this.
    The real truth is that DNA, genetics, diet and exercise, play a major role in how we’re going to age. My 78 year old mother has supple skin and barely a wrinkle! Skin rejuvenation with lasers and machines will help, but that takes time and patience. We will typically look worse at first, while we await the changes. That can be attributed in part to trans epidermal water loss (TEWL) during these processes. The reason you must drink water constantly. Take vitamin C and use retinol. Research, research, research the heck out of these treatments is the best advice for anyone considering these treatments. Most people administering these treatments haven’t a clue what they’re doing and why, nor do they understand the machines and technology. You’re so right to seek out a dermatologist who will love you and your skin through it all.

    Thank you so much, Jill. It sounds like you know a lot about all of the treatments out there. I think everyone is different. I probably would never have thought about having Botox in my 30’s, however, I was married to a perfectionist (surgeon) and he suggested that I get it. We all do certain things for certain reasons and you are correct there are emotional and psychological effects as well. Thank you for your insights.
