Premium Lenses for Cataract Surgery
Limit your risk of developing cataracts in the future by wearing sunglasses outdoors and taking steps to live a healthy lifestyle. Smokers and diabetics are much more likely to get cataracts. Strange but true: We now live in a time where being diagnosed with cataracts is both bad news and good news! The bad news, of course, is that surgery is needed. The good news is that when the cataract - or cloudy lens inside your eye - is removed, a prescription lens in inserted that is unique to your eye and corrects your vision. Lens implants are available to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism. Multifocal lens implants are now widely used to allow a person to both read and see distance without glasses. Some patients have tried progressive bifocals and could not get used to them. The multifocal lens implants are different. Although there is an adaptation period, one does not have to hunt for that "sweet spot" that they can see through. Also, multifocal lens implants offer a wide field of vision for both distance and reading. These new options have been able to free many from the necessity of living with glasses or contacts.

Go Deep with a Natural Facelift
Creams, washes and traditional facials are excellent ways to improve the clarity and tone of your skin, but addressing the underlying architecture of your face with a no-pain, no-down-time treatment is what will keep your facial skin firm, smooth and elastic. Cosmecanique comfortably and quickly tightens the underlying foundation of connective tissue. This natural toning is gentle, non-invasive, non-abrasive - and incredibly effective, especially with lifting the jowls and neck area. You'll see an immediate improvement in tone and texture, which only becomes more apparent as you build more and more collagen in each visit.

A Personal Experience with Aesthetic Center of Santa Clarita
"I'm a writer by trade but when I had to visit Dr. Courtenay Poucher and her assistant, Annie, at their luxuriously-appointed office in Valencia, I had no words. Ladies don't want to need vaginal treatments - and before I go any farther, I'm going to tell you that I'm not telling you why I went! Let's just say that I was in pain and not enjoying life.

After my relaxed, pain-free appointment with the doctor, the opposite is now true. Everything is 'working' as it should and I couldn't be happier about my procedure.

What also makes me happy - knowing that there are women like Dr. Courtenay and Annie in the world. They treat you like they are your new BFFs. No topic or question is off the table. I felt an immediate rapport with them, like we've known each other for decades. What was an embarrassing subject to discuss became nothing of the sort; I want to go to Dr. Courtenay Poucher for everything. 'Can you birth my next baby, vaccinate my tween and do something about this mole on my back?' I wanted to beg - because she's just that knowledgeable, supportive, kind and capable. I never want to talk to another doctor, ever, if it's not her. I'm spoiled from here on out.

If you ever find yourself wondering about surgical procedures for 'down there,' please don't hesitate to call for a consultation. You will not be disappointed in the clean, beautiful facility; the procedures; the follow up; and, most of all, the truly-warm, truly-sweet, truly-phenomenal women who work there," ~ Sarah Wales
