PUT AN END TO HOLLOW EYESAugust 7, 2013 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures
We talk a lot about reducing under-eye puffiness, but we know that some of you suffer from another issue: eyes that look sunken and hollow, especially for those who have more slender faces. However, there is help for those who may be genetically predisposed to hollow eyes or have lost soft tissue and bone density, which can make the eyes appear sunken.
CORRECT CHEEK CONCERNS WITH INJECTABLESMarch 19, 2013 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures
Cheek augmentation is a popular procedure since it reinstates lost volume, making the cheeks look fuller and younger. Depending on the current state of your face, there are multiple ways to enhance your cheeks. If the problem at hand is strictly a loss of fat, then injectables can plump up the cheeks. On the flip side, when the skin on the mid-face is loose and accompanied by more extreme volume loss, surgery, like a facelift, is necessary to address all the concerns.
If you have flat, sunken cheeks, then choose fillers like Perlane or Radiesse. Both hyaluronic acid fillers and collagen-stimulating fillers can add dimension and definition to cheeks that have become flat and sunken over time. After injections, your cheeks will be instantly fuller with a natural contour to them. Collagen-stimulating fillers (Radiesse) last longer (12 to 18 months) than hyaluronic acid fillers (Perlane), but neither is permanent.

Two Ways to Plump Limp LipsFebruary 27, 2013 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures
If your lips have slimmed down over the years, the reason is because of collagen loss. Factor in less moisture, sun damage and fine lines (above the lips), and your pout may be looking less-than-full sooner rather than later.
For a fast fix, try lip-plumping products. Lip plumpers employ either ingredients that swell the lips or add moisture to give a fuller-looking pout. A good lip plumper is a quick and easy way to enhance your lips. But if you find those that make use of irritants, essential oils or cinnamon uncomfortable, opt for something that plumps via moisture such as those made with organic ingredients and natural mineral pigments. These richly colored glosses lend a hydrating effect, too.
Injecting the lips with hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvéderm, Belotero) gives way to fuller, sexier-looking lips. In order for the lips to look natural, the center part should be slightly fuller with a defined Cupid’s bow. The upper lip to lower lip should be about a one-third to two-thirds ratio. Steer clear of thicker filler as well as silicone and permanent fillers, which can result in lumps, nodules and an unnatural look.
FOUR GREAT WAYS TO ACHIEVE SMOOTHER SKINAugust 31, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News
Most of us are born with naturally smooth, soft skin, but as we age moisture levels drop, often resulting in dryness and rough, uneven texture. Rough skin may also be the result of sun damage, which depletes collagen and moisture, or a chronic skin condition such as rosacea or eczema that causes bumpiness and inflammation. Whatever the cause, there are a variety of topical treatments and noninvasive procedures that address poor texture at the source.
1. For a Quick Fix:
2. For Results Over Time:
3. For a Dramatic Effect:
Suitable for all but very sensitive skin, microdermabrasion uses a wand embedded with laser cut diamond chips to polish away the uppermost layer of skin, eliminating roughness as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels, another option, are often performed with glycolic, retinoic or alphahydroxy acids; they help smooth out uneven texture by removing the upper layer of skin.
