I went to Dr.Decherd because I was tired of having my photo taken next to my friends and looking older than everyone else! I even refused to smile in pictures because my laugh lines would become more pronounced. After a lifetime of sunbathing and tennis, my face looked older than the rest of my body. I work out five days a week and yet my face was the first thing people noticed and it aged me by about ten years. At 39, I probably looked about 50. I went in to Dr. Decherd and started the Obagi skin care line. The first few weeks were tough because the old skin on my face began to peel away. After six weeks however, I began to notice a tremendous difference in my skin tone. I looked younger and my age spots and freckles were gone! Some of the lighter lines around my face were also less noticable. I than went back to Dr. Decherd for Botox and Juvederm. He used the Botox on my forehead and crowsfeet. He used the Juvederm on a childhood scar above my mouth and my laugh lines and my lips. Well, the combination of the Obagi line and the Botox and Juvederm was nothing short of miraculous! I do not have a low pain tolerance, I have no pain tolerance. Dr. Decherd's head nurse Linda, spent 45 minutes numbing my entire face until I could not feel a thing! Dr. Decherd came in and made me laugh and was so nice that I calmed down and forgot about the needles. He had music on an Ipod and you can pick what type of music you want to listen to so you don't think about the procedure. I went shopping after the procedure and was a little swollen but in no pain! I have also noticed that the longer I use the Obagi, the younger my face appears. I am going to start using it on my hands and neck. Yeah for Dr. Decherd!
