  • Don’t Sweat It: Can Botox Save Your Blowout?

    If you’re an early adopter of fitness and beauty trends, then you no doubt noticed the early summer headlines touting the latest holy grail of the hair/skin set. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Shape Magazine, InStyle and more, devotees of the daily workout have started having Botox administered to their scalps in order to stop excessive sweating at the gym from ruining their costly blowouts. After all, dry shampoo can only do so much, right?

  • Is a “Cooling-Off Period” for Plastic Surgery on its Way?

    We live in an age of immediate gratification, with little to no room for any “patience is a virtue” idealism. But when it comes to plastic surgery, both the U.K. and Australia are thinking that’s just what consumers need. Both countries are proposing guidelines for plastic surgery that would instate mandatory “cooling off periods” after the initial consultation, for patients seeking these elective procedures, and many doctors agree with their thinking.  

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

  • Hair Removal Goes High Tech

    A cascade of luscious locks is a woman’s crowning glory, but hair anywhere south of the top of your head has certainly gotten a bum wrap. Leg hair, back hair, chin hair, hair down there — it doesn’t matter how many perfectly rational and functional reasons the science-set serves up in defense of body hair, the modern species simply does not care. We want our skin silky, smooth and bare, and by golly, we’ll go to high-tech lengths to get it.
