IF you’d like to take a page from the Real Housewives’ Anti-Aging Handbook: Cary Deuber has shared her snapped — and shaped — secrets with you.
The ‘The Real Housewives of Dallas’ star – and a registered nurse – has revealed to the US Sun how anyone can look bravolebrity.
In addition to being a reality show personality, Cary is also the co-founder of Lemmon Avenue Plastic Surgery and Laser Centertogether with her husband, the renowned specialist in plastic surgery Dr. Mark Deuber.
With offices in Dallas and Atlanta, she has over 20 years of experience in the injection and surgery industries.
In an exclusive interview, she opened up about how she continues to look and feel like her most rejuvenated self.
The 47-year-old also shared her own anti-aging must-haves, revealing the surprising places it’s had rejuvenating benefits.
“When it comes to antiaging, you have to start with healthy eating and exercise,” she told The US Sun.
Cary’s top treatments for looking her best include biostimulants, which she described as a filler alternative that can be injected directly into the skin.
“I use Sculptra and Hyperdilute Radiesse, which stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin, and I think it’s just a great supplement for adding volume,” she said.
“Your skin changes as you age.”

Her most requested requests include jaw and cheek fillers, which Cary also receives as part of a broader plan.
“It’s not a one-time thing,” she explained.
Her overarching goal is to reduce downtime with her anti-aging treatments — because she has enough drama in her reality show life.
Cary also explained that she uses these biostimulatory methods herself to target the areas that cause her the most distress.
That includes her knees — and even her butt.
“I noticed things when I was wearing a dress and I was like, ‘It didn’t used to be there.’ I think wait a minute I’m training out there and my knee is still floppy.”
Cary continued, “I just love biostimulants and combining them with things like the Ziip Halo is fantastic.”
“It’s about nourishing the skin and building collagen.”
For Cary’s personal fountain of youth, there’s also a cheaper tip she swears by.
“I always have to sweat and start over.
“For me, it’s yoga or exercise that always makes me feel better. It’s also something I really enjoy.”
Collagen-loving Cary stressed that building muscle is very important, especially as you age.
“The older you get, the harder it becomes to build those muscles, and even more so for a woman,” she said.
To best build those muscles, she uses the Emsculpt machine (which encourages muscle growth while reducing fat) — something she describes as “icing” the anti-aging cake.
The camera-ready star knows that looking good isn’t just about skincare.
“I always do a full medical history and physical exam on my patients to make sure all lab tests have been done, they’re healthy and don’t have any thyroid issues, etc.,” she said.
“When I use biostimulators, I want to make sure my clients are getting a lot of protein because that really helps build collagen.”
She said that patients also have to do a lot of their own work – and that includes good skin care.
This skin-friendly routine should include a hyaluronic acid cleanser, a hyaluron-based moisturizer, and possibly retinol or some form of vitamin C.
“My generation was in the tanning bed, and now it’s just a matter of undoing all the damage from that sun.
“Younger people are taking care of themselves more today and will have smaller bills in the future,” she said.
The hard-working housewife is also committed to coming up with a five-year plan with all of her clients who want to tackle the anti-aging process.
She usually prefers to see her patients quarterly for tightening.
During this time they usually come for a treatment with neurotoxins – the scientific name for botox – as well as a hyaluron-based filler or a biostimulant.
Most likely, a laser treatment or two will be included in their prevention package.
Whether someone has watery eyes or brown spots, Cary has an injection — or a laser — to remove sagging.
“It’s a bespoke treatment that really depends on the person’s age and skin type to properly manage it and make sure they’re getting what they need,” she said.
If she had her way, a hypothetical episode of “Getting Injected with Cary” would involve trying to achieve the most natural results possible.
“I always say that you should look refreshed and not like a completely different person.”
She also addressed the most common fears some patients have before undergoing surgical or non-surgical procedures.
“They’re afraid that they’ll look like someone else or that it’s going to appear like they’ve undergone an overly obvious procedure, like big lips,” she said.
She also values inner beauty and strives to enhance her patients’ outer beauty.
“When someone feels more confident, it changes their whole life. It’s really important to what I do every day,” she said.
“People come up with a filter from Instagram or Snapchat and say, ‘I want to look this way or that, but I’m going to have an honest conversation with them about their expectations.’
Cary is also a proponent of preventative skin care — which includes starting treatments at an earlier age.
“I always tell people that if you get wrinkles, if you relax your forehead, then you need to get botox or a neurotoxin injection.”
She continued, “Some people need it by 18 because they have really strong muscles or crow’s feet or horizontal lines on their forehead.”
“Ideally they should start in their 20s and do small amounts.
“The younger generation needs to be sure they are getting the right dose so they don’t become immune to neurotoxins. She shouldn’t get it more than four months a year.”
Cary, who describes herself as a “leaky whistle,” has been taking care of her own forehead lines since she was 27.
“I think it made a big difference because if you can’t do those lines anymore, you can’t have them later either.
“When you start young you’re at a very different point in terms of fillings or jaw or cheek repairs.”
Looking like a real housewife also costs real money — Cary’s clients typically spend between $1,000 and $50,000 a year.
But she wants people to know that there’s something for everyone when it comes to reversing the aging process.
This real housewife’s only wrong part is her silicone breasts – which she says are safer and feel more natural.
her husband dr. Deuber, with whom she works closely in practice, is even known for his 24-hour breast augmentation.
His patients go out to dinner with their cheeky new couple the same day as the surgery, and Cary adds, “It shouldn’t take more than three hours.”
She also explained that while the Kardashians popularized fad treatments like the vampire facial, these aren’t as bizarre as they sound.
It’s really just micro-needling – a treatment Cary personally avails of but warns against attempting at home.
“They’re poking holes in the skin and there’s bacteria involved, so it’s better to leave it to the professionals.”
Looking like a hot housewife is now easier and safer than both — as long as you assess the risk and financial component, and keep up with Cary-approved streamlining measures.
