Who can forget Steve Largents retirement day? What is the history of the car model or manufacturer? This was the first year for the completely redesigned 300ZX model. A car truly ahead of it’s time in design and performance. What is your favorite thing about the car? EVERYTHING! This car still runs, looks and handles like the first day I picked it up from the dealership. Just lacks the new car smell. Of course this car has lots of sentimental value to me as well. Any other thoughts you would like to share? I feel totally blessed that I had this amaz- ing opportunity to not only participate in the Seahawk field goal kick contest, but to actually win such an amazing car. Having several close friends praying for me that day didn’t hurt my chances either. All I can say is, God is Good!

I have heard about fillers to help with aging but I dont want to look fake or have "trout lips" what is your advice on these treatments? Yes I have seen the trout lips, chipmunk cheeks and pillow face all the labels the media has produced to describe bad fillers. Trout lips come from and inexperienced injector that over fills the vermillion border of the lips causing them to lip up into a fish like appearance. Chipmunk cheeks are caused by overfilling without feathering the fillers for a soft transition and finally pil- low face is when fillers have been used all over the face creating a dough like appearance. As I stress to many of my clients, the · · · · talent of the injector really matters when it comes to fillers. It also matters what type of fillers is used in the area treated. For , example I would choose Radiesee for the cheeks as it has some stability and staying power but is permanent so no mistakes are allowed. Juvederm and Restalyne are used in areas such as the lips and lower nasiolabial folds. The trick with successful fill- ers is the asthetic eye of the injector and the client’s outcome expectations. Fillers have revolutionized anti-aging treatments by allowing younger clients access to preventative treatments instead of waiting until late stage full facial surgery. Fillers are fast, afford- able, and have little to no downtime and provide immediate results. What more could you ask for?
