LifeWorks recently added 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.”

The new services are 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.

Juvederm and Belotero fillers 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.

I’m 50. I don’t feel 50, but I am. Although I have good skin, I had an issue with some lines around my mouth—loss of a collagen in my cheekbones and a huge issue with bags under my eye. Now the bags are something that runs in my family and I felt were so big that I could use them as luggage. Ha.

Anyway, Sue Morgan did some fillers in the area and I look like I’m in my 30’s again. This doesn’t look fake at all and people I’ve known forever just keep coming up to me and saying “you look great”—or “you look so rested”. It’s my secret weapon.

“A few words about LifeWorks’ ARNP, Sue Morgan. She is not only a wonderful practitioner who helps with general health problems, she is great at hormones and aspects of aging too …AND I recently happily found out she is an artist when it comes to helping one’s face with aging!

She has done Botox on me and also used some fillers for those lines we ladies dislike so much… I was delighted with the results! I have gotten MANY compliments on her work; my daughter being my biggest critic says I look the best I have ever looked!

I have seen aestheticians over the years but none as gentle and caring as Sue. She really listens and understands what you want – a must in this field.
Thanks, Sue.”* R.J.

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
