  • Liquid Rhinoplasty: The Truth About Nonsurgical Nose Jobs

    We’ve waxed on about the ‘liquid facelift’ and raved about the anti-aging ability of dermal fillers to replace lost volume in an earlobe , but the use of injectables in cosmetic plastic surgery doesn’t stop there. 

  • Botox vs. Dysport vs. Xeomin: Choosing The Best Wrinkle Buster For You

    We’re going to start today’s blog out on the drier side with a little marketing term… genericide. Genericide is the process in which a brand name loses its distinctive identity due to everyone and their mother using it to refer to any and all like products (*yawn). Think Kleenex, Q-Tip, Band-Aid, Speedo—all of these names likely conjure up a variety of similar mental images (apologies for that last one), none of which are really all that specific to the individual product intended by said product’s creator.  

  • Injectables: How Your Earlobes Might Benefit From Dermal Filler

    If the Vogue magazine article touting 2018 as the “year of the earlobe” sent icy chills down your spine—this blog post is for you. Insecurities are a fickle and individual beast, for one person that might mean being overly self-conscious about that little fat pad under your chin or stretch marks racing across your stomach, for others it might mean obsessing about the sparseness of your right eyebrow or the way your hands seem to be aging faster than the rest of you. And if your earlobes happen to be your kryptonite, we’ve got good news. 

  • Is A Micro-Cannula A Better Bet For Injecting Dermal Filler?

    Today’s dermal fillers do a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to rejuvenating areas in which Father Time has failed you. Fine lines, volume loss, and gravitational pull can all be fairly successfully improved through the use of injectables like Juvederm, Belotero, Restylane… the list is long and growing. And the advancement buck doesn’t stop there. As variations in dermal fillers evolve, variations in the ways in which your doctor administers said filler also evolves.  

  • Botox Party Bust: Why Botox and Parties Don’t Mix.

    Oil and water. Fire and ice. My own taste buds and cinnamin-flavored coffee. (Never again.) There are things in this world that simply do not, and should not mix. Yes, yes. We know. It’s easy to get lost in the boozy haze of happy hour cocktails and other friendly gatherings, we thought we should, however, point out two more things that don’t mix: Botox (Botulinum Toxin) injections and parties. 

  • Lip Enhancement at Any Age

    Lips are the most sensual place on the face. Sure, bat your lashes all you want, but the lips can pout, entice, and excite… all at once.  

    The team over at New Beauty did a deep dive into what lip enhancement looks like at every age. Subtle enhancements with nonsurgical treatments can make a significant and positive change to one’s overall look. 

  • What really happens when you get Botox

    I have tried as hard as I possibly can to stop myself from frowning, screaming and getting mad at my kids and my husband. Why you ask? Is it because I am trying to be more grounded and Zen about life? Oh hell to the no. It’s because I am in a mad race against father time to keep the lines on my forehead from getting increasingly more furrowed and deep. I figure if I frown as little as possible, stay out of the sun and basically keep my face as expressionless as can be, it will go a long way in staving off those wrinkles. 

  • Social Media and Botox: How the Anti-Wrinkle Injection Became Popular Among the 20-Something Set

    Botulinum toxin is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure and with good reason. It works by minimizing muscle activity and provides temporary paralysis to the muscles it is injected into. It does so by interfering with the underlying muscles’ ability to contract, which allows for existing wrinkles to smooth out. And even though results from the anti-wrinkle injection treatments only last three to four months, it is still the go-to injectable treatment and gold standard for smoothing out facial wrinkles. Botulinum toxin comes in three brands, (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin). 

  • A Secret Enhancer for Fillers? Don’t Do it, Says One Top Doc.

    There has been a lot of talk about a secret way to ‘preserve’ or lengthen the duration of results from typical fillers like Restylane and Juvederm such as combining them with a neurotoxin like Botox, but do these magical tactics even work? Are they worth the additional hundreds, if not thousands of dollars they typically cost? 

  • Fillers May Very Well be the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

    It’s no secret that injectables are as mainstream as makeup in 2016 — there’s no more stigma or shame associated with visiting a doctor for a little something here or there, but while Botox and similar neurotoxins were the way to go in past years, fillers are certainly the way of the future.
