Skin Care Tip:

Wet Before You Moisturize!

Moisturizing is an essential part of skin care.  Replenishing the skin's natural moisture balance is important to recapturing as well as maintaining your skin's youthful elasticity and smoothness. Using moisturizer is recommended twice daily for all skin types but is especially important for drier skin.  One of the easiest things you can do to maximize any moisturizer's effectiveness is to use it immediately after showering or bathing.  This time period is important and your skin cells are very receptive to moisturizing nourishment.  Try it and you'll easily realize the difference.  The best skin moisturizers are the physician-strength ones and neaclear and skinceuticals seem to be the most popular, best tolerated and most effective. 

Moisturizing skin care products are an essential part of an effective skin care regimen for people with dry skin.

Anti-Aging Tip:

Go to Disney World!

Life is a wonderful thing that we all take for granted sometimes.  Amid our busy schedules, we often get caught up in moving forward, meeting goals, achieving agendas, trying to make everyone happy...  While that is all acceptable to some extent, don't forget to take a vacation once in a while.  All too often, people keep delaying it, pushing it off, thinking about the financial expense and a myriad of other reasons to not take one.  That, however, is a mistake.

Stress is truly one of the worst things that can happen to a person and there is no doubt that many of the serious diseases plaguing the civilized world today can be prevented or even reversed through a reduction in stress levels.  Many studies support the positive effects of talking a "time-out" or going on vacation.  One of the best and worst things that has happened to us lately is digital revolution.  While I will be the first to admit I love email, my cell phone and my computer, a vacation is not a vacation when your office comes with you.  Go somewhere, anywhere, even for a day or two!  Sounds simple, doesn't it?  It really is.  Try it and I think you will notice the difference right away.

Going on vacation once or twice a year for even a few days is surely one of the best ways to relax and recharge while also improving your health and well being!

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Lots of people are interested in getting rid of veins. We always get questions about whether or not the procedure is necessary, effectiveness and different treatment options. Laser vein removal is probably the most popular method of removal in the majority of cases.  Vein removal is a very common procedure and very safe if performed by an accredited physician.  Please check out the wealth of information on our site by clicking here.  To see before and after patient pictures, please click here.

Make sure you chose a board certified plastic surgeon.  A call to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or ASPS at 1-888-4-PLASTIC (ie. 1-888-475-2784) can tell you which doctors are legitimate plastic surgeons with outstanding qualifications.  You can also visit the ASPS web site at The ASPS is the only one of the 24 boards approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties that certifies physicians in plastic surgery of the face and all areas of the body. <
