HAS BEEN FOUND
THE SEARCH FOR THE
FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
Centuries after Spanish explorer Juan
Ponce de Leon pursued a quest to
discover life-giving water, the Fountain of
Youth can now be found in Hartland, Mich.
The complete name is Fountain of Youth
Skin Renewal Centre…and estheticians can
produce the results Ponce de Leon was
The center’s founder, Susan Alderson,
established this youth-giving business
in 2005, after other careers in the health
field. As a registered nurse, she spent time
in the Intensive Care Unit at the former
St. Joseph Hospital in Flint. During that
tenure, she tended a variety of patients,
from an overdose victim to an open-heart
surgery patient, to a person injured in a
car accident. After 15 years, she decided it
was time for a change.
Sue’s next job was for a home-care
agency, where she cared for mostly elder,
homebound patients. During this time,
after being certified in Wound and Skin
Care, she became interested in skin
care and decided to pursue the esthetic
Innovative Health - Spring 2018
The next step for Sue in learning different
skin treatments was certification in
Cosmetic Injectables, which Sue achieved
through the Esthetic Skin Institute in Ft.
Lauderdale Fla. She worked in several
locations before she decided to open the
Fountain of Youth Skin Renewal Centre in
When this center opened, the only
product used for skin injections was
Botox. That’s the common name for
onabotulinumtoxinA, a prescription
medicine injected into muscles to
temporarily improve the look of moderate
to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and
frown lines in adults.
Susan and her team now specialize in
face and body refinement and injectables.
They offer three different neurotoxins
and numerous fillers. Even the injection
techniques have improved over the years,
and all the nurses at Fountain of Youth
Skin Renewal Centre are regularly trained
on the latest products and injection
Laser treatments and facial peels have
been offered since the center opened, and
Sue employs specially trained estheticians
to perform these treatments.
