Beauty Round Up: How To Look Instantly Younger With Make-Up

Sculptra®Aesthetic: One Way to Look Great, Not Fake

Good things come to those who wait. That is the case with Sculptra®Aesthetic; an injectable cosmetic that works like a derma filler overtime. Unlike Juvederm or RADIESSE, two very popular skin plumping options that provide immediate results, Sculptra®Aesthetic works slowly to gradually replace the collagen that time has taken away while reinforcing your skin’s structure. Many of our patients appreciate how this injectable cosmetic gradually and subtly corrects wrinkles while producing a refined and more youthful appearance that can last for up to two years. Sculptra® Aesthetic is perfect for correcting shallow to deep smile lines; marionette lines, and those dreaded chin wrinkles.  On average three injection sessions are needed over a three month period but sometimes one or two injections does the trick. It all depends on the current condition of your skin. To learn more about this treatment schedule a free consultation so we discuss the best treatment…

Medical Cosmetic Solutions for Crow's Feet

Whoever said laughter is the best medicine did not have crow’s feet, those pesky lines that start at the outer corner of the eye and over time fans out and deepens.  The condition for most adults is the first sign of aging. This is because the eye and temple area have less collagen than the rest of the face, and this effect’s the skin’s elasticity. To add insult to injury, this fragile area is prone to sun damage and deteriorates further based on unhealthy habits and poor skincare. Even if you do everything “right” — wear sun block, skip squinting, and vow to never smile again you can’t prevent volume loss, another culprit responsible for this condition. Thankfully, Verve Medical Cosmetics is armed to the teeth with wrinkle fighting solutions. Our arsenal includes: Botox Cosmetic, a powerful medicine that blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles which softens and often…

The Wrinkle Report: Marionette Lines

Marionette lines despite the playful name can make us look years beyond our real age. For those not in the know, these creases are the result of aging.  The lines resemble parentheses that frame the corners of your mouth and chin—think Howdy Doody and you get the idea (and if you are old enough to remember him, you just might have these annoying facial grooves). Now until March 23rd 2012, Verve Medical Cosmetics is making it a little easier to address those pesky creases with our “Marionette Lines Special”.  Got questions? Call today to book your complimentary consultation prior to the procedure so we can discuss the condition in detail with you:  (212) 888-3003. Don’t be a puppet head any longer.

Intentions for Prevention

We are now into the second month of the New Year, and I have to ask — how many of you stuck to that New Year’s resolution you made about eating better and exercising more? Show of hands please? Hmmm, I thought so. Okay, don’t beat yourself up. Good intentions can pave the way to great health if you take things one-step at a time. Let me brag for a moment. I am vegetarian and amateur athlete. I don’t smoke, I drink in moderation, and yes, I make sure I have plenty of water each day. Nevertheless, it took time to establish healthy habits and make it a part of my everyday life, and I did it in baby steps and so can you. Vow to walk at least once per week and build from there.  Take measures to cut processed foods one meal at a time. Keep a journal…

Eyerise Can Wipe That Tired Look Off Your Face
