Is Botox Worth It?

The September 2012 issue of Redbook asks, “Is Botox really worth it?” A savvy editor interviewed top board-certified doctors and scores of women who had undergone injectable procedures. She also looked at studies that have been done on injectable satisfaction rates. Though Botox costs far less than cosmetic surgery, it is still an investment for the average working mom, so it is wise to gather information before undergoing an injectable procedure. When and if you start Botox depends on your wrinkles. If you have lines that make you look sad, tired or annoyed, you may want to start sooner rather than later. For example, lines between your brows may make […]

Liposuction Worries Put To Rest

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 […]

Lasers and Fillers Can Restore Your Hands, Creams Will Nourish Them

Rule #1: Protect your hands from the sun. Do you still recognize your hands? If the answer is “yes,” you probably have not hit your middle fifties. Hands that have done dishes, changed diapers, scrubbed bathtubs, gardened and gripped the steering wheel in the noonday sun are likely to be paper dry, wrinkly, veiny and spotty. For all that good work, you deserve a reward. Instead, you have hands that give away your age. No good deed goes unpunished. After constant hand washing while tending a sick husband, a 52-year-old reporter was horrified by the appearance of her hands. Over a six-month period she tried in-office and home treatments, targeting […]

How New Light Based Technologies Can Minimize the Signs of Long-Term Sun Damage

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 […]
