  • I Got Botox to Stop Excessive Sweating

    Kristen consulted with her board-certified plastic surgeon and decided to have Botox injected into her armpits to reduce excessive sweating.  

    “It’s a problem I have had for years, so when I heard that Botox can reduce or stop my sweating problem, I had it done,” noted Kristen. 

  • Fatten Up - Will Fat Transfer Replace Fillers?

    Your face: the one place that you don’t want to lose fat is ironically the one that does. I’d play Alanis Morissette’s song Ironic, but one of my kids erased her songs from my playlist. More irony, I suppose. Most people assume that when the fat is lost, it’s time for filler and they aren’t wrong, but what they don’t think about is using the natural filler they make at home, fat. I know, I made it sound like moonshine, but the procedure is actually highly technical and with a skilled plastic surgeon can be highly effective. 

  • Lip Injections Defined and Augmented My Lips

    When Cassondra went to a board-certified plastic surgeon for her routine Botox injections, she decided to get lip injections too.  

    “I had full lips before the procedure but wanted to enhance what I already had. I had talked to a few friends who’ve had lip injections and even though I was a little nervous, I loved their results, so I’d looked into it,” explained Cassondra. 

    Lip injections are not permanent and depending on the filler injected into the lips, the results could last from 6-12 months.  

  • Juvéderm Voluma Curves Out Its Niche As A “Lifter” in Facial Contouring

    Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Arthur Swift explains the difference between Juvéderm Voluma, one of the new fillers on the market, and the original Juvederm.  

    “Juvéderm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid. It is ideal for cheek recontouring because of its ability to create the ‘OG’ curve, a nice and smooth curve on the cheek,” explains Dr. Swift. 

    Juvéderm Voluma differs from the original Juverderm and other hyaluronic acids because it is developed with a short chain of hyaluronic acids.  

  • Who Is Administering Your Botox? Why Credentials Matter.

    NBC's recent story, about the major consequences of seemingly minor facial treatments calls our attention to a scary but true scenario- doctors you trust for significant care in certain areas of your life --from dentistry to internal medicine--are not likely the best option to administer facial fillers or Botox. But until you know what qualifications to look for, you may be swayed to get an enhancement at the hands of a Botox novice.
