Liposonix is the Hero New Moms Need

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think anyone gains ONLY the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy.  It’s too easy to become a walking mass of food consumption (and why shouldn't we be?  We’re eating for two!).  Unfortunately, this usually translates into excess skin after pregnancy that no amount of skin-tightening tips on the Internet can fix, no matter how aggressive the methods m… more

Fixing Age-Sensitive Body Parts With Ultherapy

Certain parts of our body are more susceptible to aging than others. Neck, chest, brows and mouth areas are dead giveaways that your skin isn't what it was when you were sixteen.

What wou… more

Confused about Injectables? Here’s Your Cheat Sheet

If you’re like me, you probably ditched your chemistry textbook back in your school days—and maybe with glee! But do ever feel like you need an advanced degree to make an informed consumer choice about some of today’s cosmetic procedures?

Get Out of The Stone Ages and On Board With Injectables

If you’re still intimidated by dermal fillers and injections, let me be the first to tell you that you’re living under a rock. Somehow, words like “Botox” and “needles” still conjure up images of expressionless eyes and overly-plumped lips, and that’s an image we need to put to rest for good.  It’s outdated and just plain wrong. (Does anyone still believe this happens?  This is horrifying.) When… more
