The Non-Invasive Mommy Makeover

You’re a mom, you’re busy, you can’t even shower without your kids coming into the bathroom. You work hard, long hours- this is no 9-5 job, kids are always on!! You’re working out, you’re eating (mostly) healthy, but you’re missing that pregnancy glow, or you need a little pick me up in the aesthetic department, but you aren’t willing to go under the knife. What to do? Have you heard about a non-invasive mommy makeover? Well, let me tell you all about it. It’s not your traditional go under the knife, have anesthesia, get a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift. It’s modern age medicine, it’s noninvasive or more honestly, much less invasive than having surgery.  What does it include? Whatever you want or need. Each patient is different. Our bodies age differently and alter differently from the physical changes our bodies go through during […]

Skinceuticals and SkinMedica

Skincare: Top 3 options that everyone should be on & why

Skincare options seem endless these days so here are our Top 3 picks that everyone should be on and why. Morning Antioxidant Serums: Skinceuticals CE Ferulic/Phloretin CF – This antiaging and collagen boosting serum is a potent antioxidant which protects skin against free radical damage caused by UVA and UVB rays.  Free radical damage leads to visible signs of aging skin.  CE ferulic is best for normal to dry skin types, while Phloretin CF is for normal to oily skin types.  We call this liquid gold because the first time you use it, you will notice your skin glow with brightness, and it protects against photodamage. Hyaluronic acid: HA 5 by SkinMedica or HA Intensifier by Skinceuticals – Both of these are great for any skin type and promote smoothness, plumpness and firmness of the skin and is an excellent skin hydrator.  HA5 is showing promising results in helping Botox/Dysport […]

Are daily skincare regimens really that important?

YES!!!   While I love Botox, Filler, Kybella, Chemical Peels, etc.. I always tell my patients how important a daily skincare regimen is.  I equate it to running a marathon, climbing Kilimanjaro or doing a triathlon.  The important part is how you train for the big day, skincare is exactly the same.  There are so many wonderful, medical grade skincare products, backed by a ton of research.  For example, HA 5 from SkinMedica is currently being researched along with Botox to prove that it extends the length of Botox. I am a perfect example, my Botox only lasted two to two and a half months, once I started using HA 5, my Botox lasted 3 months to the day.  There are practices in Southern California which are currently studying this exact phenomenon.  Who would not want to extend their Botox with a wonderful moisturizer made with Hyaluronic Acid which also […]

The Importance of Sunscreen

Making it part of your daily skincare routine We hope you all are enjoying the extra hour of sunlight this Spring and think it’s an excellent time to discuss sunscreen.  Not only is sunscreen important when it’s sunny out, but is just as important when it’s cloudy, raining or snowing.  The reason is that UV (ultraviolet) rays are the part of sunshine which damages our skin and can cause skin cancer.   UV rays are broken down into 3 categories: UVA rays which cause aging of the skin and cause wrinkles. Some skin cancers are caused by UVA rays and are found in tanning beds. UVB rays are the rays which cause sunburn and have a higher likelihood of causing skin cancers.   UVC rays are part of welding torches and mercury lamps.  The most important thing to remember is that 10-15 minutes of unprotected skin can cause damage. It’s […]
