  • Chemical Peel Power: An Anti-Aging Skincare Fix—Part 2

    Aging happens. And eventually we all reach a point when no amount of at-home skincare or h-y-d-r-a-t-i-o-n can deliver the same filtered-selfie glow that we're pining for. Which brings us to Part 2 of our series exploring the wondrous world of chemical peel treatments. 

  • Chemical Peel Power: An Anti-Aging Skincare Fix—Part 1

    Soft, medium, hard boiled. Poached, scrambled, sunny side up. Over-easy, over-medium, over-hard. All of these are variations on a single theme (It’s eggs. BTW.)—and thank goodness they all exist. We don’t live in a one-size fits all world, which means a lot of things come in a variety of customizable sizes and options. And that makes everyone happy. This includes many of the nonsurgical skincare treatments on the market today. 

  • Under-Eye Why: 7 Reasons And Solutions For Your Dark Circles.

    Sleepless nights, environmental damage, perhaps you’re distantly related to a raccoon–whatever the reason, dark circles under the eyes are a look best left to super villains and… you know… raccoons. Why the hate, you ask? We’ll tell you.  

  • You Are What You Eat: How Sugar Is Aging Your Skin.

    It’s not always easy to navigate your way through the day without a little help from a salty, crispy bag of chips, 7 dark chocolate brownies, a glass (or 3) of red wine, or all. the. cheese. We feel you. Yet despite our empathy, we feel obliged to the truth. And the truth is: Your favorite comfort food/beverage is likely wreaking havoc on your skin.  

    You: (Inserting another chocolate covered almond into your mouth) Really? Do tell. 

  • Sun Damage Drama: Anti-Aging Treatments For Sun Ravaged Skin

    While there are plenty of apps out there that claim to be able to judge one’s age with precision, none can compare with the stone cold, in-person experience of another human’s eyeball scanning your complexion for signs to your true age. And since the day has yet to arrive when we can replicate the Insta filters, selfie angles and amateur lighting of a cell phone IRL (in real life), it’s probably a good idea to look at one of the biggest culprits used to size up the age on your driver’s license—and that culprit is your skin.  

  • Eye Spy: Anti-Aging Answers For Treating Your Eyes

    If your shut-in winter status has left you with lots of time to fixate on the ravages of Father Time, you may have noticed that your eyes—once simply the windows to your soul—are now a reflection of something a lot less appealing. As we age, fine lines, under-eye baggage, and sagging and hooded eyelids start to bely the fact that, hey, we’re not getting any younger. That doesn’t mean we have to take it lying down. 

  • Crow’s Feet: Why We Get Them And What We Can Do About It.

    Whoever came up with the term 'crow’s feet' must have had a serious vendetta toward the signs of aging… or toward crows. Either way, it's that term that stuck, and now here we are describing those pesky wrinkles at the outer corners of each eye as that… crow’s feet. While not always an indicator of age—crow’s feet do tend to make one appear older. And most of us can agree that the pesky lines are one sign of aging that we can do without. 

  • 80 is the New 60

    In the last year, the number of 75 to 80- year-old individuals who have come to my office for cosmetic procedures has increased significantly. Body contouring, facelifts and fillers in preparation for celebrating the big 75 and 80-year milestones has been a recurring theme. Each one has said they don’t feel their age and they want their appearance to reflect how they feel. 

  • Breaking Down Cosmetic Procedures for Your Kids

    This summer, I had Botox and fillers done so subtly that my daughter noticed from a mile away. Fine, it wasn’t an actual mile, but it was about the length of a baseball field. I know this for certain because she was at camp on a baseball field and ran up to me, the entire length of the field, saying, “What happened to your face?” 

  • Want Your Cosmetic Surgery to Last? Do This!

    The decision to undergo any sort of cosmetic procedure, especially a facelift, is very personal and not to be taken lightly. You've got to make sure you're in the right hands and then consider the financial commitment, your expectations, any potential pain or discomfort and of course recovery/downtime.
    If you do decide to green-light a cosmetic procedure, it's important to note that most do have a shelf life. The good news? You can influence what that shelf life is!
