The Benefits of Thermage

When skin starts to sag, it may seem as though there’s not enough skin cream in the world to restore and tighten your skin. It’s not surprising; sagging skin starts deep below the skin’s surface.  As we age, collagen levels start to drop, which contributes to loss of skin elasticity and firmness.  Add migrating facial fat to the equation, and it’s no wonder skin creams and serums barely scratch the surface of addressing skin sagging. Fortunately, there’s a non-invasive treatment out there that can address skin [...]

What Is the Best Procedure for Collagen Loss in Lips?

By now, you probably know that as we get older, we start to lose collagen and elastin in the skin.  This loss explains why skin starts to sag, cheeks begin to look more hollow, and wrinkles become more prominent.  In order to address this loss of collagen, many products and procedures are focused on restoring plumpness and kick-starting collagen production right within the skin.

What’s the Difference Between Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma?

When it comes to looking younger – without looking “overdone” – it’s important to include Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma in your anti-aging regimen.  While anti-wrinkle injections and serums can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, truly youthful faces have plenty of volume in certain areas; specifically the cheeks and lips. As we get older, facial fat begins to break down.  This effect can create a hollow look, which is especially prominent in the cheek and lip areas.  Therefore, in order to get the most natural-looking youthful [...]
