I will turn 48 in May. I have been plagued by awful, ugly dark age spots on my face. I was also starting to see my age on my face as well as the W word, wrinkles and crows feet. We won’t even talk about the double chin problem. Many of my friends, in the same age group are plagued by similar problems. It seems the older we get, the more things droop and the older we appear to look. What do you do when you need a lift? I mean a real lift.
I had a 47 year old friend who went for a free consult for a Lifestyle Lift in Fort Myers. Apparently they can do the procedure in just an afternoon and you can quickly return to life as normal. My friend noticed the before and after pictures look like you had something done. She was looking for a more natural look. That was clearly a downside, that and the cost. Apparently a short procedure and a quick recovery means nothing as far as a discount for surgery. It is quite costly and painful I assume.
What about Botox? Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all a form of botulinum toxin A. This is a procedure you should only get done from a doctor board certified in plastic surgery or dermatology. It is a temporary result and there are side effects. Since it is temporary, you can expect to need regular botox injections. Some side effects include headaches, bruising, injection site pain and drooping eyelids or eyebrows. ( They will return to their natural position in a few months as the Botox procedure is temporary) Another concern is if you are pregnant, nursing or plan to have children shortly. The FDA recommends you talk to your doctor before starting Botox, Dysport or Xeomin. Cost wise, you will incur regular monthly or bi-monthly costs to retain your youthful look.Dr. Gordon Pedersen Shares How to Neutralize Free Radicals by Eating Dark Chocolate: Dark Chocolates Can Be Good For You More reasons to eat dark healthy chocolate
How about Xophoria Neurocosmetic? Xophoria is the new anti-aging skin care cream made by healthy chocolate company XO. The Xophoria product is based on a high antioxidant raw cacao product. They say you will not only look better but feel better as well. After reviewing before and after photos taken after using Xophoria morning and night for 30-60 days, I quickly determined I needed this product. I have ordered it for myself and my husband. We are both using this morning and night and in just a week have noticed improvement. I am anxious to see the results after one month. One of my major concerns is dark age spots. In just 5 days of usage, (see before & after photo above) some of these age spots were already gone and others were lightening. I also noticed how soft and moisturized my skin was. After a hysterectomy and having both ovaries removed, my skin was beyond dry. So a product that continually keeps my skin feeling moisturized is a plus. Price wise, this is clearly the least expensive option. Preferred Customers also receive 20% off and free shipping on purchases. (no coupon code required)
