Not all Hyaluronic Acids are equal.

SkinMedica has introduced a new product that is a rejuvenating hydrator called HA⁵. SkinMedica HA5 is a Hyaluronic Acid which is a natural “water-loving” substance found in the skin that holds in moisture keeping skin healthy, resilient, and supple. By the time you are 40-50, you have lost 50% of the HA that you had at age 20.

HA⁵ works differently than other topical HA serums. It delivers both immediate and long-term results, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and overall skin health. Within minutes your skin will look and feel smoother but it is the ONLY HA on the market that is penetrating, builds your own HA and offers EIGHT hours of hydration.

This product is perfenct for someone who wishes to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture and roughness.  HA5 fits nicely into the recommended GRASS skin health regimen.  It should be applied after your growth factor in the morning and after your retinol at night.  It is sold in a 2 oz. bottle.  It is TSA friendly.

A Breast Reduction using Liposuction?

Yesterday I performed a Breast Reduction using Liposuction only. To my surprise, the OR nursing staff was unaware this was possible. So I figured if they were unaware it was possible, most people probably are. So lets talk about it.

Why it works: Well, breasts are normally made up of glandular milk producing breast tissue AND fat. In fact, for many women, the breast is a preferred fat storage site. So, we are able to use liposuction to remove the fatty component of the breast. This can be done with one or two very small incisions instead of the typical larger more noticeable breast incisions.

Limitations: There are limitations to the procedure being done this way. First, you cannot get as much skin tightening this way and you cannot lift the breast as well as with a traditional reduction. Secondly, you cannot suction out the glandular breast tissue component, only the fat component. So gauging final breast size is more challenging.

In the end, it is a very effective technique that replaces the significant scaring of a traditional reduction with almost no scars yet still effectively can reduce the breast.

What are age spots?

What are Age Spots?

Age spots are pigmented lesions caused by excess melanin in skin cells resulting from UV exposure. People of any age or race can develop these spots. (That was the bad news.) The good news is that there are several treatment options that can help you achieve that beautiful, even skin tone again. Topical treatments used to bleach, lighten or brighten include Hydroquinone, Lytera, or Chemical Peels.  Another popular option is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), for skin types I-IV,  which can pull the excess pigment out of the skin for an immediate improvement. We recommend using Lytera with retinol  to protect your investment and results after your IPL treatment.  Regardless of the treatment option you choose, sunscreen should always be applied afterwards and daily.
