computer face

Working at your computer for long hours may get the job done, but it may also be making you look a heck of a lot older. Plastic Surgeons have dubbed this syndrome, “Computer face.” Dr. Prager told the Daily Mail, “If you are one of the unfortunate people who frown or squint while they are concentrating at the screen then, over time, you will inevitably end up with frown lines.” “What is perhaps more surprising is the number of women with saggy jowls because they are sitting in one position for so long.” What was most alarmingly noted is that people in their 20’s are spending an increasingly number of […]

This can cause your skin to appear dry or flaky – resulting in an aged appearance. Sunburn – Sunburn is a skin injury that occurs after the skin is exposed to UV radiation. Mild to […]

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 […]

Published on September 27, 2012 by

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 […]
