Common Aesthetic Procedure Myths

If you’re considering a minimally invasive procedure, you may get cold feet when you hear a lot of the tall tales told about the procedures. Having said that, a lot of information about aesthetic procedures is wrong. Here are some common aesthetic procedure myths: Botox is Unsafe When botox is performed by an experienced doctor, it is very safe. However, there are always risks to any procedure, and botox is no exception. Some possible signs and side effects of botox are vision problems, muscle weakness all over the body, and trouble breathing, amongst others. Lifetime Warranty As much as people like to think that the results of any aesthetic procedure will last forever, they do not. Aesthetic procedures can help you turn back the hands of time, but these hands of time need to be turned back every so often. Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Aesthetic Procedures, Same Thing The distinction between these categories is confusing. Plastic surgery can be viewed as the umbrella term, because cosmetic surgery is a part of plastic surgery. However, plastic surgery also involves reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery only focuses on beauty. Aesthetic procedures are different than both plastic and cosmetic, because while they focus on beauty, they are minimally invasive procedures. This means that no incision into the skin is required, while surgery involves making an incision. CoolSculpting is a Cure All CoolSculpting is designed for patients that are close to their ideal weight; the procedure wasn’t created as a way to treat obesity.

Vitamins Essential for Beauty

When you’re a child, you learn your A,B,C’s, which are an essential foundation for your life. This lesson is also important when it comes to your health, because Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E improve your aesthetic. When your body receives vitamins, you have a healthier appearance. This is why it’s important to make sure your diet is filled with vitamins essential for beauty. Vitamin A Vitamin A helps treat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, sunburn, and others. It can also be applied to the skin to reduce wrinkles and protect the skin against UV radiation. Vitamin A can be found in fruits, vegetables, eggs, whole milk, butter, meat, and more. Vitamin C Vitamin C protects your skin against sun damage and skin cancer. Vitamin C also reverses skin discoloration and wrinkles that come with aging. You can find it in fresh fruits, especially citrus ones, and vegetables. Vitamin D Vitamin D is a good natural way to treat psoriasis. Also, it helps open hair follicles to grow. You can add fatty fish such as sardines and tuna to your diet to get more Vitamin D, or you can go out in the sun–6 days of casual sunlight exposure makes up for 49 days without it. Just make sure to follow these guidelines to prevent skin sun damage. Vitamin E Vitamin E gives hair its shine and bounce, and it promotes growth. Not only that, but Vitamin E helps protect skin from aging. Add cereals, oils, meat, poultry, and more to your diet Read More >>

Snow Day Spa Day

Woman Receiving Spa Treatment

Winter Storm Stella is set to hit the Northeast with record snowfall, which means…snow day! While you’re snowed in, why not turn your home into a spa? Here are several things you can do at home to improve your aesthetics and have a snow day spa day! A Rose for Emily Rosewater is a great toner that provides your skin with hydration and reduces oily skin. The best part is, rosewater toner is extremely easy to make–it’s a 2:1 ratio (two cups of boiling water for every 1 cup of rose petals). Cover and steep the liquid until it’s cool, then strain out the rose water into a sterile jar. Make sure you keep it in the refrigerator in-between uses. Aren’t You Glad I Said Banana? If you have some extra bananas lying around (and most people usually do), you can create a homemade facial mask that makes you look younger. You can even use it as a bit of a stress reliever when you mash up the banana into a smooth paste. After you’ve taken your aggression out on the banana, gently apply the paste to your skin and let it sit for up to a half hour. Rinse it off with cold water, and your skin will look and feel softer. Daily Coffee Fix If you need your daily cup of coffee,like everyone else–actually, it’s 83% of adults–then you probably have some coffee beans in your house. Great, because you can use coffee beans to create your own body scrub! Not only does Read More >>
