The 90/10 Rule of Cosmetic Injections: What you need to know

This is a very exciting time in the cosmetic injectable industry. People are now using medical aesthetic treatments at a younger age as a preventative, while others are continuing to use these treatments on more mature skin. There has been a boom of medical professionals outside of physicians being trained to perform these injectable procedures. However, with the increasing number of new centers/spas and new products being introduced, consumers need to select their cosmetic injectable provider with care. What is the 90/10 rule?  With over 22 years of experience as a cosmetic injectable expert, Dr. Stephen Bracci has concluded that about 10% of a patient’s results are due to the actual product injected into a patient for example Voluma, Radiesse, and Restylane etc… The other 90% of the success of the patient’s results lays solely in the hands of the cosmetic provider’s level of expertise. What is the 90% Injector…

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…

How To Be A Younger Fresher You, Part Two

As we mentioned in our post on Tuesday, outside of medical cosmetics there are many things you can do to not only look your best but also look younger and healthier. Below are just a few more steps that anyone can do to start looking great at any age. Remember being told not to hunch when you were a child?  Well correct posture will keep your body aligned and healthy, makes you appear a few pounds lighter, plus projects an air of confidence. So sit and stand up straight, don’t hunch your shoulders (which can make you look eons older) and hold your head up high! We all know how important exercise is but for those who don’t work out much it can be intimidating.  You don’t have to go out and run a few miles at the crack dawn everyday. Just start working in some strength training and stretching…

How to be a Younger, Fresher You!

Outside of medical cosmetics there are many things you can do to not only look your best, but also look younger and healthier. Below are just a few steps that anyone can do to start looking great at any age.   You mother may have told you that in order to start the day right, you need to have a good night’s sleep. She was right! Your body, including your skin, needs at least 7-8 hours sleep in order to rejuvenate.  So don’t skimp on catching your zzzz’s, if you don’t feel refreshed, you won’t look refreshed!   First off, if you still smoke it is time to smell the fresh air! Not only is this unhealthy for you, but second hand smoke is detrimental to the people around you. Smoking can lead to many difference diseases plus it makes you look dreadful by rapidly aging the skin.   Let’s…

Freckles & Age Spots

Age sun spots are cute on Dalmatians, but when they appear on your face — well that’s another story. There are two types of “spots” that appear on our skin;  freckles and age spots. Both are evidence of sun damage. Freckles, as adorable as they might seem, are the result of too much sun in addition to having unevenly distributed melanin (the dark pigment in skin). Age spots on the other hand, are never charming.  As we get older our skin’s natural ability to fight off UV rays diminishes and unlike dainty freckles age spots appear as large brown or gray-ish splotches that leave the recipient with a dull, uneven complexion. Yuck. Thankfully there is plenty that can be done to restore the spotless luster to one’s skin. IPL Photofacial Laser is an efficient way to remove dots and splotches,  plus it is medical approved. For select patients a Retin…

Marionette Lines Explained

Marionette lines, despite the playful name, can make us look years beyond our real age. For those not in the know, (because you are most likely too young) marionette lines are the vertical creases that run downward from the corners of the mouth. As the lines get deeper they begin to carve a permanent disappointed “look” on one’s face.   The culprit for this condition is facial structure and age. As adults grow older, the fatty tissues that give us that youthful apple cheeked look deflate. The result is skin that starts to look loose and pulled down. Despite what you may see advertised, there are no magical creams or facial exercises that can reverse the condition. However, non-surgical cosmetic fillers administered by an experienced physician especially when started early in the aging process is the most effective way to turn that frown upside. Non-surgical cosmetic filler treatments take 10 minutes, are safe and…
