This heating destroys the hair follicles without damage to the surrounding skin. The procedure is convenient and effective for all skin types, although some skin types may require additional sessions.

A recent study of twins illustrates how smoking ages the face. Smokers are likely to get bags under their eyes and wrinkles around their lips earlier than non-smokers, according to a new study of identical twins. Judges who didn’t know which twin smoked said the smoker looked older 57 percent of the time. That pattern held when both twins were smokers but one had smoked for many years longer than the other. “Smoking makes you look old. That’s all there is to it,” Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi said. “At Yolo the most common complaint we hear related to smoking is lip lines and overall dullness of the skin. We have a […]

Another Gummy Bear Implant Approved

The FDA recently approved the use of the silicone “gummy bear” implant. The 410 implant by Allergan is an anatomically-shaped, textured, silicone cohesive gel implant that is much firmer than the previous silicone gel implants. To better understand what these are and how they differ from currently available options, let’s talk facts.

You can literally cut through the implant with a pair of scissors and the two halves will actually keep their shape. But because these implants are more cohesive, they are also firmer than previous implants and more likely […]
