I didn’t think it was bad enough to worry about, but after consulting with Dr. Mauricio I decided to see if laser treatments would make a difference. I couldn’t believe it! I look and feel so much more confident now!
Recently I was with a group of my girlfriends and happened to mention my age. They were bowled over… they thought I was ten years younger than I am! I have Dr. Mauricio to thank!
“It’s not what’s on the Outside that’s important, it’s what’s on the Inside,” I hear people say. I say it is truly a combination of both.
I am 40 years of age, yet my outlook is still that of youth: mid-twenties, 5’7”, 125 pound woman, excited to experience the adventures of what life has to offer and create the life I have always dreamed of. However as time went on and responsibilities increased, especially with the births of my two children and co-founding my own company, I found myself putting “me” on the back-burner and slowly letting myself go. Was it my intention to let myself go? Absolutely not! Yet when I looked at myself in the mirror, I could clearly see the results… On the Outside: Age spots, bags and fine lines under and around my eyes, lines on my forehead that seemed like a permanent fixture…basically a drab look of tiredness. Then there was my body… Justifying that a few pounds a year of weight gain was O.K., I ended up with a dress size of 12 to 14. I even found myself wearing oversized clothes to mask my weight gain.
Now don’t get me wrong; I have a beautiful, fulfilling, and blessed life. I have been married for 13 years to a wonderful and loving man and have two beautiful children, fabulous friendships, and a thriving business that my husband and I co-founded.
Then I met Dr. Tess Mauricio…. For the first time in a long time, I put myself first. I chose to do it for me, as a woman. Not for any of the hats that I wear…. Not for wife-hood, not for motherhood, not as an employer, and so-on and so-on…
…I did it for me. I chose to proceed with Dr. Tess’ recommendations.
The results were out of this world.
What awakened for me on the Inside was: more Aliveness, more Self-Confidence, and more Excitement for Life than I could fathom.
What was done on the Outside was:
Botox: The lines between my eyebrows and on my forehead are gone, and there is a lightness in my demeanor. I was told by many people that I look rested and rejuvenated.
Polaris: The fine lines around my eyes and face disappeared.
Aurora laser: Sun spots and age spots slowly got lighter…a few have completely vanished.
Collagen: The dark circles under my eyes have lightened up tremendously.
Liposculpture: I am down to a size 7-9 pant size and am focused on healthier eating habits and exercise….this was the jump start I needed.
By meeting Dr. Tess, I truly have found the Fountain of Youth! The burdens of the day are not as heavy. I am having FUN and truly enjoying life again! So yes, feeling good about my Outside invigorated my Inside.
Dr. Tess, I am forever grateful for you and your mission “to promote self-esteem, build confidence, and improve your patients’ quality of life." Thank you for giving me MYSELF back.
