Tracy Austin doesn’t need much introduction as she is one of the world’s most famous tennis champions. In this interview, Tracy Austin talks about some of her most memorable moments of her tennis career, how Juvederm dermal filler improved her skin, what made her join the Juvederm Decades of Smooth Campaign, and Bille Jean-her toughest opponent in her entire career.

As a world famous tennis champion you don’t need much introduction. What have been some of your most memorable moments of your career?
Professionally, my greatest achievements include winning two US Open tournaments, winning the Wimbledon mixed double with my brother, John, and becoming the world number one tennis player.

Personally, my greatest achievement is, of course, my family. I feel very lucky… like I’m living my second life!

How did you get interested in skincare, particularly, JUVÉDERM™ dermal filler?
After nearly two decades as a professional tennis player, I’ve spent a lot of time in the sun. Although sunscreen is now part of my daily beauty routine, I admit that much of my early career was spent without the benefit of this important protection. A couple of years ago, I began to notice wrinkles on my face, like the ones that seemed to form “parentheses” around my nose and mouth. When I talked about it with my doctor, he recommended JUVÉDERM™ to help restore the volume in my face and instantly fill in those parentheses. My doctor took the time to explain to me that JUVÉDERM™ is a safe, effective, FDA approved treatment that has been used for years in Europe and the United States. He told me that JUVÉDERM™ is made by the same company that makes BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A). He also explained that – when done correctly – the results are very natural looking.

How do you feel JUVÉDERM™ changed the appearance of your skin?
First, I love the smooth and natural results! Second, the treatments are quick with minimal downtime. As a busy working mom, I love the fact that I can see my dermatologist in the morning, and still pick up my kids from school. Everyone notices I look refreshed but no one can tell why…

“You know, for a while I kept my JUVÉDERM™ treatments a secret between me and my closest friends. But, because I’ve received so many compliments after my treatments I decided that it was finally time to let everyone know that we have options that our mothers didn’t. That we can grow old gracefully with the help of our physicians….”

What advice can you give to women who are considering JUVÉDERM™ for the first time?
My advice is to ask your doctor questions. I wanted to know if it was safe. My doctor assured me it was FDA approved and, I wanted to know if it hurt—sure it stings a little bit, but it’s not really painful. I asked if there would be downtime. But the doctor assured me that if I was treated in the morning, I would be able to pick up my boys at school. And I also wanted to know how long it would last.

For some women dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM™ are considered ‘high maintenance’. What are your thoughts?

You know, for a while I kept my JUVÉDERM™ treatments a secret between me and my closest friends. But, because I’ve received so many compliments after my treatments I decided that it was finally time to let everyone know that we have options that our mothers didn’t. That we can grow old gracefully with the help of our physicians.

 

 

What compelled you to join the JUVÉDERM™ Decades of Smooth™ campaign?
Today, women and men have so many options when it comes to taking care of themselves and their skin, but many still have questions about what kind of aesthetic treatments to consider. When I first started learning about non-surgical treatments I wasn’t sure where to find information—and it wasn’t a subject openly discussed among my friends. That’s why I wanted to join the Decades of Smooth™ campaign—to help spread the word about safe and effective options like JUVÉDERM™.

How does your beauty regiment reflect your personality?
It’s pretty simple, but disciplined. I use a gentle wash, moisturizer, some specialized creams, sunscreen of course, and I see the dermatologist twice a year for checkups. I didn’t have the benefit of sunscreens as a kid, it wasn’t mainstream, so now I wear it head to toe every day. Living in California I have to be really disciplined about it.

How have some of the disciplines you learned as tennis champions translated into your day to day lives, especially as a mother?
As a professional athlete it’s all about balance and organizing to fit everything in – eating right, stretching, gym, time on the courts. I am doing the same things as a mom, constantly adjusting to the kids’ schedules, meeting their needs day to day. I adjust on the fly. It’s about being disciplined but flexible.

Who was your toughest opponent in your entire tennis career?
Billie Jean King was hard for me to play because I respected her so much.

What other passions do you have besides tennis?
My kids are my biggest passion, trying to raise happy well balanced kids.
I love reading if I’m given the time, and I love to garden

What’s next for Tracy Austin?
In July, I’ll be making appearances with Lindsay Davenport at the Decades of Smooth™ booth at the East West Bank Classic in Los Angeles and at the US Open in New York in August. While at the US Open, I’ll be handling live commentary, so look for me on USA Network in August!
