Skin Care Tip

Hydrate inside & out!

Water is so important, from the inside out. Not only does water flush out bacteria, it also helps to circulate nutrients throughout the body. Hydration ensures your whole body is running smoothly, which makes both body and skin look and feel nourished.

Water is actually the purest and most effective way to detox the body and it's completely 100% natural. Keeping the skin properly hydrated will actually slow the aging process while also helping fight excessive oil production and acne, since dehydrated skin sends powerful signals as a defense mechanism to produce more oil. Keeping on track with your water intake will result in more plump, glowy and youthful-looking skin. Your brain will also thank you keep you and have you feeling more energized. Here are some tips to get yourself drinking more water on a daily basis:

  • Keep a water bottle with you at all times
  • Drink a glass of water with every meal
  • Add fruits to your water for extra flavor
  • Make goals for how much water to drink by a certain time

Anti-Aging Tip

Increase your antioxidant intake & your skin will love you!

When it comes to anti-aging, many people purchase fancy eye creams, wrinkle-fighting serums, and focus their efforts in plastic surgery. While these things can surely help, there is a more natural approach you can take with turning back the hands of time. You can eat your way to more youthful skin.

The human body naturally produces some antioxidants, such as melatonin, but most of them have to come from food. Antioxidants seem to be everywhere, in superfoods, chocolate and even red wine.

Plastic Surgery Tip

Benefits of Short Scar (Mini) Facelift Surgery

A Short-Scar Facelift is a minimal-incision facelift that repositions the skin and soft tissue of the face affected by the aging process. Short-Scar Facelifts are multi-layered where internal soft tissue structures are adjusted separately from the skin that covers them. The scarring behind the ear and in the hairline behind the ear is eliminated with a short-scar face lift. This procedure is often performed with a mid-facelift to give a more natural appearance.

During this surgery, all areas of concern that show aging are repositioned. Skin from the fat and muscles below the surface are separated. Fat may be trimmed to help improve the contour. The muscles and SMAS membrane are tightened and the skin is repositioned and any excess skin is removed. Facial structure plays a major role in determining the outcome of the procedure. Your Plastic Surgeon will be able to determine if a Short-Scar Facelift is best for you
