My only regret is that I waited so long! Naturally, I was afraid. It is a huge decision to change your facial appearance. It all comes down to what you are willing to do about the way you look. Weighing the difference between the fear of plastic surgery, versus the depression of looking old. For me, it became unbearable to look in the mirror.I was foolishly abusive to my skin years ago. I never thought about sun damage or what cigarettes would do to my face until it was too late. There are no creams or lotions that can hide these damaging signs of age.
