She embraces the merging of traditional and integrative medical approaches to achieve the best possible results for her clients, helping them look better and feel better on their path to healthy, happy aging.
“To understand a client’s hormonal symphony, it’s imperative to address nutrition, the thyroid, adrenals and a measure a wide range of other hormones to set the proper course for healthy, happy aging,” says Dr. Lizette Lourens.
With more than a decade of experience in medical aesthetics and cosmetic medicine, Dr. Lourens has witnessed the evolution of the industry. With the incredible advancements that have been achieved in medical esthetics, she is a strong believer in utilizing natural facial rejuvenation products like Sculptra and Selphyl, in addition, or as an alternative, to the more traditional injectable treatments like Botox, Juvéderm and other common options.
