Q/A WITH COURTNEY SUMPTER, PA-C
What have been the greatest breakthroughs in facial aesthetics over the past ten years?
Botox and volumizing with fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse) still give incredible results; FX laser for skin resurfacing and Ultherapy for tightening and lifting are true recent breakthroughs.
What is the biggest change in your industry?
The fact that everybody is doing it now. Our services are no longer taboo. Only a few people still think Botox is only for movie stars or makes everyone appear expressionless; most people see this like hair color... a good job looks natural, more rested and awesome for your age.
What procedures do men select?
Men are becoming more relaxed about all this and quite often, they select the same services as women. Men are staying in the workforce longer and they don’t want to look tired or angry. As a general rule, men see significant changes very quickly because they rarely maintain a good skin care regimen. Having regular peels, microdermabrasion, or using Retin A makes the skin more radiant, smoother and less wrinkled right away.
What do you think is the key to your success?
Having a team of providers that share a common goal. We’re passionate about aesthetics, thrive on change and embrace new services as they are introduced; and we build trusting, honest relationships with our clients.
What is most satisfying for you at CSLC?
People feel better when they look better, and we witness this every day: when they don’t have to tweeze facial hair daily; when we erase a line between their eyes that made them look tired or worried; or when we flatten a belly bulge that made them look out of shape. These physical improvements give people the confidence to interview for a new job, change an unhealthy relationship or simply be a better companion because they feel better about themselves.
Ultimately people want to look as young as they feel. Often we hear, “I walked by the mirror and caught a glimpse of my mother and that’s not how I feel!”
