Take Years Off Your Face Instantly


Dermal filler injections have literally changed the face of aging and have given doctors the ability to reverse the visible signs of time instantly. There’s also been a paradigm shift of sorts in the world of facial aesthetics. It’s no longer enough to just take loose skin and pull it tight. The “old” way of simply using fillers to erase wrinkles and folds is really just a two-dimensional approach to a 3 dimensional problem.

As we get older, we start to lose elasticity and fullness in our faces, which leads to cheek “hollowing” and loss of youthful plumpness. Full cheeks are a key marker of youth. Age-related volume loss can cause the face to lose definition, balance and change shape, all of which can make a person appear older than their years.

People age differently: their skin may deflate (lose fullness or volume), descend (droop or sag) or both. However, few people realize the mid-face is one of the first areas to show the signs of aging – as we lose facial volume, cheeks deflate and descend.

Sunscreen: Make It Part Of Your Routine


Each year, Skin Cancer Awareness Month shines an important spotlight on skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the United States with over one million people diagnosed each year.

This summer, be sun-smart with these tips from the Skin Cancer Foundation.

  • Avoid burning and stay clear of the sun during its prime hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; seek shade instead.
  • Cover up with protective clothing and use at least one ounce (that’s two tablespoons) of broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen for your face and body, making sure to reapply after sweating or swimming.
  • Use SPF 15 for everyday and SPF 30 or higher for outdoor activities.
  • Perform monthly skin checks and visit your doctor annually for a professional exam.
  • Lastly, skip tanning beds altogether: Just four visits a year can increase your risk of melanoma by 11 percent.

We love using SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense products. They’re oil-free and provide the ultimate protection from those nasty UVA and UVB rays. The fragrance free formula also helps protect skin from free radical damage. Sensitive skin types benefit from the 100% mineral formulation that is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. All of their sunscreens are sheer enough to be worn under makeup. And, it’s recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Coolsculpting: Remove Fat And Slim Down Without Surgery


More and more people are trying Coolsculpting these days and we’re loving the results we’re seeing! This is a picture of a 63 year old woman a year after 3 treatments of Coolsculpting. This woman was by no means overweight, she was active, ate well and exercised. But, like a lot of people, she had an area of stubborn fat that just wouldn’t go away no matter what she did. She was a perfect candidate for Coolsculpting. Needless to say, she was pretty happy with the results. So were we.

CBS just did a segment on Coolsculpting that’s pretty interesting. If you have a minute and are interested in learning more about fat freezing, check out the article on their website or watch the video below.
