Self-Assessment Exercise

Our office offers a variety of non-surgical treatments designed to correct the physical effects of facial aging. When you look in a mirror every day, you may find yourself less than happy with changes you see, but it can be difficult to pin down the problem areas that make you look older. The purpose of this self-assessment exercise is to help you identify those areas that might need work. When you focus on your face this way, you can more easily see subtle changes that affect your overall look.

Try it! And, after you do, call us to schedule a Total-Look Consultation. We’ll evaluate the problem areas and fully explain the steps that can be taken to give you a fresher, younger look. The consultation is just $95. Call today: 408-866-4884.
