Does juvederm, botox and glycolic peels really work because I can't see as they have after spending over $5,000.00?

Getting a facelift isn't going to correct everything
Sorting out the options...
Rejuvenation is a long-term process with so many options - and all of them add up to great expense. I find it helpful with my patients to make a list of the specific features that are most bothersome, and then make a realistic plan to tackle one or two that top the list. You'll find that one modality - for example fillers - help to restore contour and volume, but that one modality won't completely solve other issues - wrinkles... CO2 laser resurfacing is a modality that beautifully restores the quality of the skin and tightens the skin to some extent, but doesn't help the loss of volume in the facial tissues or change drooping tissue - brows, upper lids, etc. A long range plan using several modalities is often helpful. Budget for those things that seem to produce the best results for you. Surgical procedures that have a lasting effect are those that remove tissue - and they happen to have some down time. Once you see improvements in your skin quality with the peels for example, protect your investment by using good sun precautions and good skin care products. Avoid smoking, eat well, exercise, and get adequate sleep. For the long term, you may feel more confident if you seek more than one opinion. Best wishes on your rejuvenation!
