Liposuction Worries Put To Rest
Published on September 27, 2012
One of the biggest concerns people have when considering liposuction is whether or not the fat will come back and how it will look. Luckily, new studies have been conducted to get to the bottom of this issue. “For years, doctors have noticed that those liposuction patients who consume too many calories and don’t exercise enough usually don’t put on tummy weight after abdominal liposuction but, in a year’s time, store new fat in other bodily areas such as the arms, the back or the breasts. Dr. Eric Swanson, a plastic surgeon in Leawood, Kansas decided to put this theory to a test; his results were published in a well-respected […]

How New Light Based Technologies Can Minimize the Signs of Long-Term Sun Damage
Published on May 4, 2012
Not all lights are created equal. Some are visible to the human eye as colors. Others, though not perceivable, produce long-lasting biological effects. For example, ultra-violet (UV) light (10-400 nm), which comes to us in the flavors of UVA, UV B, and UVC (though little of the latter reaches the earth), is well known to alter our skin cells at the genetic level, causing DNA damage. The result: aged, weathered skin; precancerous skin lesions known as actinic keratoses (AKs), and in the worst-case scenario, skin cancer. Yet there are other types of light that can help fight these problems. An emerging field of light-based technologies, known by names such as […]

As we age, we discover that one of the most noticeable changes to our appearance involves the eye area. Usually, the origin of such unwanted comments is typically the nonverbal messages the eye area sends as we age. There are many causes of dark circles under the eye including vitamin deficiency, dark pigment, or loss of volume by which underlying vessels show. Dark pigment is usually attributed to sun exposure over a lifetime. […]
