Skin Care Tip:

There are Benefits to using a toner!

Many people do not know or understand the benefits of using a toner. To some it's just another step in their beauty routine they would rather neglect. The fact though is that toner is an important product that everyone should use. The benefits of toner are quite remarkable. A daily toner, formulated for your specific skin type, will help remove microscopic particles of oil and dirt that general cleansing and washing will usuallu leave behind. Because of this, you will typically notice the benefit of smaller looking pores. Toner also assists in restoring the natural pH balance of skin. Washing, even with a mild cleanser, will alter the skin pH. A toner will combat that effect which in turn will reduce the oil your skin produces in response to that pH imbalance caused by cleansers. Depending on the type of toner you choose (humectant or glycolic/alpha hydroxyl), it can even assist in moisturizing. We recommend making a free skin care consultation with one of our licensed Medical Aestheticians so they can assist you in recommending a great toner to add to your daily routine.

Anti-Aging Tip:

Anti Aging Benefits of Walnuts

Studies have shown that Walnuts are a great way to improve memory, aid in concentration, lower the risk of diabetes, and may even slow cancer. A new study just found that a daily serving of walnuts also helps lower blood cholesterol in adults. The study showed that consuming 1.5 ounces decreases inflammation of the gut and can change your appetite long term, allowing you to feel fuller longer. All of these boost other anti aging measures by helping you attain and maintain a healthy lifestyle

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Chicago Blepharoplasty Surgery

As we age, our skin looses elasticity. This can cause eyesight issues when it affects out eyelids. Sagging eyelids can be the cause of looking older, cause discomfort in your personal appearance, or even affect your vision. Blepharoplasty, otherwise known as eyelid rejuvenation surgery, may not be a well known option for most people. However, it is a rather quick procedure that may usually be done in a plastic surgeon's office. Blepharoplasty surgery is a great option for people looking to treat loose and saggy skin that alters the natural contour of the eye, puffiness caused by excess fat, under-eye bags, drooping eyes, and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.
