The Beauty Prescription for a New You in the New Year!
Fulfilling your New Year’s resolution to refresh and rejuvenate in 2020 can start in Kendall County with a specialized approach called the “McRae Rx”. That is the creation of long-time Boerne internist and skin care expert, Dr. Elizabeth McRae. She developed this personalized program to combine the latest in aesthetic medicine to produce a person’s desired results. She adds, “This customized plan produces lasting, natural-looking results! I can help a person take off more than a dozen years just by choosing the right treatments!” “McRae Rx” incorporates premium skin care, high-tech laser treatments, neurotoxins, dermal fillers including the permanent product, Bellafill, along with new, cutting-edge specialty services like her latest addition, the Scarlet RF. Dr McRae says, “Scarlet RF is the best radio frequency micro needling device on the market today for tightening and skin rejuvenation!” Scarlet RF delivers fractional radiofrequency energy directly to the skin through micro needling applying heat and RF energy to stimulate collagen. It improves the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, acne scars, pores and stretch marks.
2020 also ushers in big changes for Dr McRae. Months after retiring her internal medicine practice of 31 years, she is now devoting all her time to her 15-year-old aesthetic practice. This revolutionary re-focus allows her to follow her passion of improving the appearance and self-esteem of her aesthetic patients. Her medical laser spa has come a long way since it’s inception. Growing from a simple beginning of one laser and one technician to the newly re-named McRae MD Medical Laser Center offering more than 15 lasers treating many common concerns from tattoos, to veins, scars, brown spots, wrinkles and pores.
Patients from as far away as Florida, New York, and even Germany travel to Boerne to see this experienced physician regarded for her precision, artistry and safety. Dr McRae believes she serves her patients best by mastering the latest technology. She began injecting Botox 24 years ago when it hit the market then added lasers 15 years ago when they too were new to the aesthetic world. All along, Dr McRae has sought out all the greatest trainers and doctors to become a standout in these fields.
Dr McRae leads the state as the number one BellaFill Injector in Texas and third in the nation! Bellafill is the only FDA-approved 5-year dermal filler that stimulates collagen growth long term to maintain a more youthful appearance for five years! It is non-resorbable unlike many hyaluronic acid fillers that require repeated reinjection. Bellafill has a 97% satisfaction rate one year after injection! Dr McRae says “Bellafill in the hands of a bad injector is worthless, but in the hands of a great injector is priceless!”
Dr McRae’s goal is to take patients back to where they thought they looked and felt their best and keep them there without the constant change that can come with temporary fillers which inflate and deflate the skin creating laxity.
And, it is not just for women, more and more men are seeking out ways to take off the years. Dr McRae says, “Men are seeing their wives look refreshed and want that too!”
