LifeWorks Launches New Skin Care Services

Clearwater, FL – LifeWorks Wellness Center is adding to its program of services by introducing a range of products that will help treat facial skin to maintain and improve its appearance.

Heading up the new program is LifeWorks’ Nurse Practitioner, Sue Morgan. She says, “In my role at LifeWorks, I enjoy guiding my patients through the many changes they physically go through as they age. Looking good and re-gaining confidence can really boost self-esteem, which in turn aids good health. I am looking forward to introducing these new services.”

The skin care program is divided into different categories:

Botox delivers a protein from the botulism bacteria to provide relaxation in certain muscles. This relaxation helps to reduce the wrinkles that are produced when that muscle contracts. The most common places for this product are the frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet.

Juverderm and Prevelle Silk are dermal (skin fillers) which are injected into the skin to fill in areas that have lost volume due to aging or creases caused by wrinkles. Areas such as the smile lines, marionette lines (at the corners of the mouth), lip augmentation, and the hollows under they eyes are commonly treated with these kinds of fillers.

Radiesse is another type of filler. Radiesse works with your body below the skin’s surface and is considered a “sub-dermal” filler. The substance used is calcium hydroxylapitite, a naturally occurring substance that does not cause allergic reactions and thus does not require testing.

The Obagi products are practitioner-prescribed cosmetics and skin care products which provide many benefits. They improve function within the skin cells, and help skin look and act younger and healthier. They also help to reduce acne flair ups.

LifeWorks Wellness Center combines complementary and alternative medicine with traditional approaches, to give the best health care possible. The clinic offers more than a dozen different modalities for wellness, all in the same Clearwater clinic.

For your free consultation on these new products, please call our New Patient Scheduler on (727) 466-6789 to make an appointment.

Dr. Minkoff

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
