Raquel Welch, Judi Dench, Jane Fonda, Tina Turner, Sean Connery, Harrison Ford…what do all these amazing stars have in common? They are all in their 70’s! But surprisingly, they don’t look a bit older than 50!

We are also seeing more and more patients come in for this rejuvenation treatment, who are in their 60’s and 70’s.
