Does Nutrition Make a Difference in Skin Rejuvenation?

It would be naive to believe that changing your nutrition is going to wipe out all your wrinkles or completely stop skin aging. I wish! But it is just as naive to think that you can eat (or neglect to eat) whatever you want without any effect on your skin. What you eat affects every organ in your body and your skin is no exception.

What is Acne?

I will be talking about some do’s and dont’s for acne prone skin.

What You Need to Know About Eye Aging

The faces of twenty five and thirty five year old people usually differ mainly in the eye area. Thirty five year olds are a lot more likely to have fine lines and bags under the eyes; some will even have crow’s feet. Not surprisingly, when we try to estimate someone’s age, the appearance of the eye area is always one of the key factors. Therefore, if you want to keep looking young as long as possible, it is usually not enough to take care of your skin in general. You need to neutralize a natural tendency of the skin in the eye area to age faster than the rest of your face.

Get More Energy and Boost Your Metabolism with B12

Do you need more energy and would like to boost your metabolism? Well have you tried getting a B-12 or a Lipo-Plex (aka Lipotropix injection) shot? These shots not only give you more energy, boost your metabolism and they also help to burn fat. Vitamin B-12 creates new healthy cells in your body and is one of the best ways to loose weight as well.

Retin A vs Retinol

As you age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to form and your skin loses its smoothness and elasticity. Years of sun exposure also cause changes in your complexion. Vitamin A can help prevent and reverse these signs of aging. Two popular forms of Retinoids are Retinol and Retin-A. They’re both made from vitamin A and promote faster skin cell turnover, and are some of the most proven, effective, and powerful options for treating skin issues ranging from acne to aging. Many anti-wrinkle and skin rejuvenation products contain retinol. Retinol and retinoic acid are related but distinctly different. Many people confuse Retinol with Retin A, but I am here to give you a clear understanding of the differences.

Physical vs Chemical Sunscreen

There are two general types of sunscreens physical and chemical. Physical sunscreens use physical UV filters while chemical sunscreens use chemical UV filters. There are also hybrid sunscreens that contain both physical and chemical sunscreen actives.

What Can You Do to Prevent “Turkey Neck”?

The Exilis laser is a safe and effective way to tighten up loose and sagging skin that requires no anesthesia, no incision, no painful recovery and no down time.

Do You Need to Wear Sunscreen in the Winter?

UV rays cause skin aging and they are out all year. You may notice that the sun rays feel “softer” and less intense in the winter, and to some extent they are. The reason being is because the UVB, the summer sunburn rays, are not as prevalent as they are during the summer months. But don’t be fooled, UVA rays are out in full force and they are as strong in winter as it is in the summer, even if you don’t feel it as much.

Who is the ideal patient for Exilis body contouring?

An ideal patient is someone who is 5-10 pounds of their ideal body weight, but has fat pockets they would like to spot reduce. For the majority of patients, Exilis is ideal to treat “muffin-top” or the “bra- fat” on the back. Also many people just have a small ridge of fat say above their knee or on the inner thighs that they don’t like. If they don’t look as good as they used to in their jeans then Exilis is a perfect treatment for them.
