How Does Botox Work?

It’s virtually impossible to make it through a day without showing some type of emotion on your face, whether you’re smiling, cringing, or frowning. Your skin stretches and contracts every time you make an expression, but as you get older your skin is less capable of “bouncing back” from those expressions. This is why many of your wrinkles are most noticeable on your forehead or in between your brows. Continue reading “Will Botox Freeze My Face? Your Most Important Questions about Botox” »

Why Splurge For Laser Hair Removal?

Men and women have been in the pursuit of body hair removal since ancient times, but it is an especially important goal in today’s society. Men purchase costly razors to eliminate their beard and mustache hair, women shave their legs and underarms everyday in the shower, and the bikini wax has become a must-have before the summer season.

Peel Away the Signs of Aging Before the Holidays

The holiday season is in full swing, and your calendar is probably packed with parties and celebrations with coworkers, family members, and friends. You deserve to walk into the room looking and feeling your very best, but sometimes your skin needs a little TLC to overcome the damage it endured during the summer. A peel is a quick, simple, and non-invasive way to shed dead and damaged skin cells from your face so that your skin can take on a younger and more rejuvenated appearance.

A Peel Improves Image and Texture of Your Skin

Your skin naturally accumulates dead, dull, and damaged cells each day. These cells are the culprits of fine lines, discoloration, mild scars, sun damage, and general dullness in appearance. Even if you wash and moisturize your face every day, those cells stay in place and continue to diminish your natural radiance. This is why a chemical peel is such a simple yet powerful way to refresh your appearance. Continue reading “Peel Away the Signs of Aging Before the Holidays” »

Tired? Irritable? It Could Be Your Hormones

In today’s world, feeling tired, stressed, and a bit cranky at the end of the day is hardly unusual. But what if that fatigued and irritable feeling starts to encroach upon your life? How long have you been feeling like a lesser version of yourself? Are you gaining weight, struggling to perform sexually, or having trouble with your memory? So many men experience these problems as they get older, but they aren’t sure why. They might attribute the changes in their physical and mental state to too much pressure at work or the unavoidable effects of growing older. However, the truth is that a hormone imbalance is likely the underlying factor.

Without the proper level of testosterone production, the male body cannot continue to function like it needs to. Testosterone is absolutely critical to a man’s well-being, yet testosterone production decreases with age. Since testosterone dictates everything from appearance and sex drive to muscle mass, the condition of low testosterone can be devastating if not properly addressed.
