ShaunShaun is approaching 50. He’s always been a good looking guy. However, like all of us do or will at some stage, he’s noticed the signs of ageing. Deciding to take control and do something about it, Shaun did a bit of research and about 2 ½ years ago, had his first Lipogems treatment. He shares his journey with us, and for any of you feeling “tired” and not quite as gorgeous as you used to, Shaun’s story about approaching 50 and staying hot might be just what you need to read!

PSH: Shaun, thanks for talking to us! How old are you and what are your main appearance concerns as you age?

Shaun: 49, however looking 50 right in the eye! I wouldn’t call them concerns, rather challenges, that I will tackle head on, sagging and dull skin that looks very worn… too lived in you might say and of course the tone and texture of my skin.

PSH: Had you had any beauty treatments before you found Factor 4 and Lipogems and if so, how did you find the results?

Shaun: No. All I’m doing, as I live in my skin, I’m treating it kinder annually with Factor4 and MDerma skin needling.

PSH: How many Factor 4/Lipogems treatments have you had and how long did it take before you began to see some significant results?

Shaun: I had a Lipogems treatment 2.5 years ago. I wanted some volume under and around my eyes – they were looking a little hollow. The results were instant – completely natural! We used my adipose tissue, 100% autologous (from your own body, no foreign ingredients). I now have four Factor4 treatments annually to keep my skin its best all year round, and of course in between that, I use the best skincare daily, to protect, feed and nourish my skin That is of course, Beaute Pacifique Skin Care, and I never leave the house without sunscreen, SPF50!

PSH: Did your friends/family notice you’d had any beauty treatments and if so, were they impressed? Would you recommend these treatments to friends or family?

Shaun: Huge LOL, my sons would often say, “What have you done now dad?!” Ji, my husband, he’s just used to me looking at my worst and at my best! However, what is interesting is that now friends, family and colleagues who haven’t seen me in some time constantly remark on how fresh I look. My skin is thicker and healthier now as I approach 50 than in any other time of my life – many say I look younger now than I did 10 years ago! I say this all the time – you only have one skin, be in your best Factor4 skin every day!

PSH: Is there anything else you want to pass on to anyone looking to have these treatments?

Shaun: You have to be real – Factor4 treatments are not going to work overnight; like going to the gym, results take time. Your skin is and should be your future investment, I say! Invest heavily in it now, so as you grow into it, it will always look good and never let you down. Lets face it, your skin makes you look young or old, your best skin as when you are a baby – it’s thick, lush and dewy. It can also be that as we age, timeless and youthful is the aim.

Long Term Benefits

We think Shaun looks great – and his skin definitely looks like it belongs to someone closer to the age of 30, if not younger! He is absolutely right about long term maintenance for your skin. If you take more of a long term approach you’re more likely to reap the benefits in the long run. Many effective non-surgical treatments take time for the results to kick in… some of them continue to help and repair the skin months after the treatment. Factor 4 and Lipogems are getting raving reviews about their results. And, it’s got to be a good sign that products or treatments work when they are used by the top plastic surgeons around the country.
