  • Broken Capillaries: If It Ain't Broke Fix It Anyways.

    Just like a broken heart, broken capillaries aren’t literally broken. Sure, you might feel aching loss and devastation at the discovery of red spidery veins creeping across your once flawless cheek or climbing up the side of your nose. You may even fall into despair over a ruddy looking complexion overrun with the broken beasts, but despite the “broken” moniker, it’s not necessarily true.

  • Why Your Skincare Regimen Might Be All Wrong

    Most women claim to have sensitive skin, but as it turns out, few women do. You might be thinking, “Wow, Jenny thanks for that scintillating bit of news and who cares if I’m wrong about my sensitive skin, it can’t hurt to be on the safe side, right?  

  • Can Too Much Collagen be a Bad Thing?

    My Adventures with a Stubborn Keloid Scar 

    By Allison Schmidt 

    A keloid scar is basically the only time I think of collagen as a bad thing, because too much of it following an injury or a mole removal procedure, (in my case), can actually cause a scar that is raised and larger than the initial injury, which can also be itchy and painful.  

  • Cellulite 101: What Causes It and What Treatment Options Are Available?

    We live in a world of filters and Photoshop. However, live streaming on social media prevents that pristine filtering of flaws – and one that might be fairly noticeable on camera is cellulite. For many, depending on the severity, it is an unflattering sight they’d like to either conceal or get rid of forever.  

  • Doctor Approved Go-To Fixes for Crow’s Feet

    While you won't ever find me with binoculars up to my eyes, keeping track of all the different species of birds I've seen, you might find me purchasing artwork, linens or china with birds on them, or pointing out an especially gorgeous bird visiting our backyard feeder. As a child, I saved injured birds by putting them in shoeboxes with air holes in the lid and handing them over to the care of my dad who always declared them cured the next day because they flew away in the night. 

  • How Common Are Stress-Related Skin Issues?

    We’re all under a great deal of stress. Whether it’s difficult relationships or work situations, sometimes that stress takes a toll on our bodies. 

  • The Latest in Tattoo Removal Techniques: Because No One Should be Branded with Their Tramp Stamp for Eternity, (unless they want to be)

    I subscribe to a certain theory in regards to the monumental decision to brand oneself with a tattoo. Namely, before one gets a tattoo they should imagine themselves looking at that tattoo in twenty years, or, at the very least, after the tequila wears off. Case-in-point: I’ll never forget a guy I dated who showed me his Hebrew-worded tattoo and very matter-of-factly told me that it meant “strength” when, (unbeknownst to him and because I am fluent in Hebrew,) I knew that it actually meant “cow.” This date’s misguided tattoo is a story I relay to anyone I know who is about to get inked. 

  • What if Your Under-Eye Bags Are Something Else?

    I’m constantly being asked to write about under-eye bags - well, specifically how to get rid of them. What I’ve come to discover is that there is a lot of misinformation out there about potential remedies. There are “miracle creams” and such, offered at every price-point, claiming de-puffing capabilities that I have personally come to discover are just lies – because the truth of the matter is genetics often play a role – especially when it comes to bags and the causes and fixes for them. Bottom line is that we all hate them. 

  • Laser Tattoo Removal: Is A Doctor Your Best Option?

    You don't have to have the name of your ex, a gang sign or some unrecognizable or embarrassing picture prominently displayed somewhere on your bod to regret that tattoo. Besides having moved on in life, there are numerous other reasons you might want it gone for good. Maybe it's keeping you from getting that promotion at work, it's just not "you" anymore, or you don't like the example it sets for your kids. Maybe it's just ugly as sin because you obtained it in a drunken haze during your collegiate years. 

  • Get the Best Skin of Your Life: Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatments

    If you're looking for a highly effective means to reverse age spots, wrinkles, or lax skin, fractional laser resurfacing treatments just might be the solution. Fractional laser resurfacing is actually two different types of procedures (ablative and non-ablative) and they are able to correct mild to major skin issues ranging from age spots to deep wrinkles and more. Though both ablative and non-ablative laser resurfacing can improve your skin greatly, they have significant differences.
