Anti-Aging Tip:

Benefits Of Meditation

There are many treatments, creams, and supplements out there that are designed to help fight aging. However, there is one weapon that many of us don’t think about and that is practicing meditation and performing breathing exercises. One of the biggest factors that contribute to aging is stress. As our lives get busier and more hectic, stress is inevitable. Meditation is a great way to help lower our stress levels, and lead calmer and more balanced lives. Other Benefits of Meditation Include:

  • -Improved Skin Health
  • -Relaxes Our Nervous System
  • -Lowers Blood Pressure
  • -Enhances the Immune System
  • -Reduces Anxiety
  • -Increases Energy
  • -May Reduce Your Physiological Age
  • -Helps With Weight Loss

If possible, try to find 10-15 minutes a day where you can quietly meditate, control your stress and create a general peace of mind and well-being.

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Sink Your Fangs Into This: Vampire Face-Lifts

Between all the television shows, movies and books, it is no secret that there has been a cultural obsession with Vampires lately. One of the main things that Vampires are known for is their immortality and youthful looks. What better way to honor our favorite nighttime friends then with a Vampire Facelift? A Vampire Facelift is an in office procedure that consists of blood being drawn from the arm and then injected into the face and used as filler. The platelets in the blood are separated by a system called Selphyl, and injected in the face in order to stimulate new collagen production. The nice thing about the Vampire Facelift is that the patient’s own blood is used as opposed to a synthetic filler or neurotoxin. End results include filled-in wrinkles, a smoothed out look and less chance of bumpiness or unevenness. Consult your board certified plastic surgeon for more information on receiving a Vampire Facelift.
