January 30, 2018

How to Get a Perfect Pout for the Big Day! Lip filler is too often touted as overdone, and patients worry about looking “different.” Every day, I tell my patients that they probably see plenty of people with lip injections but have no idea because it looks so natural. There are many great filler products available that create a beautiful, natural and perfect pout. As we mature, our lips actually do start to invert slightly, making lip injections important “beauty maintenance.” Always trust your lips to an experienced injector and […]

Turning Back the Hands of Time
November 6, 2017

  Almost every day in my clinic patients ask me when white gloves are coming back into style to cover their once more youthful hands. We do such a great job protecting our face and using treatments as well as skincare to reverse visible signs of aging and totally forget about our hands! As we mature the skin becomes thinner on our hands, making the veins and tendons more apparent. We also lose a bit of fat making them look less supple as they once did! If all that isn’t […]

The Neck and Décolleté: Areas That Should Never Be Ignored
June 5, 2017

For so many years the focus of many cosmetic treatments targeted the face alone, while unfortunately leaving the neck and décolleté untreated. It is all too common that after treating the face with Botox, fillers, topicals, and/or laser treatments, patients return stating now that they love the appearance of their face, they also want their neck and chest to match. Instead of looking at the face alone, we must consider that the neck and décolleté are an “extension of the face” and should never be left out of our skin […]

But has anyone ever told you about the importance of infrared protection as well?   Infrared rays (IR) come from the sun and have a longer wavelength than the cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays.
