How Can a Brow lift Benefit Me?

By Dr. Philip Schoenfeld, MD

How Can a Brow lift Benefit Me?

 

 

Many of us take for granted how big a roll the eyebrows play in our appearance, our facial expressions, and our communication with others. Raising or lowering the eyebrows can enhance a smile or a frown, show someone kindness, sorrow, joy or surprise. The eyebrows are no doubt an important facial feature, but they are also vulnerable to unwanted side effects of the aging process. Over time, the skin of the forehead and face will become lax and inelastic, leaving the eyebrows to sag. A brow lift procedure can correct a sagging brow, a wrinkled forehead, and provide many benefits to patients.

 

Improve Facial Expressions

 

Without the eyebrows, facial expressions may lose much of their meaning. Sagging eyebrows can also leave others thinking you are sad, tired, or even angry, no matter how big you might be smiling. You may have noticed that your brow has begun to sag on its own. You might have also been getting asked if you’re upset more often, thanks to a permanent change to your facial features. When the eyebrows are working against you, a brow lift surgery can provide relief.

 

Reveal the Eyes

 

As a side effect of a sagging brow, your eyes might be getting lost in the mess. With the downward pressure of the skin and brow, your eyelids will also droop and sag. Hooded eyelids can cause additional problems, even blocked vision. If you’re unable to see well because of a sagging brow and eyelids, you could be in danger when you drive and cross the street. Brow lift surgery will expose your eyes to the world again, it will also help you to better see the world around you.

 

Rejuvenate the Appearance

 

A sagging brow won’t just make you look tired or angry, it will also age your appearance significantly. If the upper portion of your face is marked by deep lines, creases, and sagging skin, a brow lift is the right approach to alleviate these problems. You may have noticed deep lines in a v-shape, also called frown or worry lines. Horizontal lines will also form across the forehead as a result of the aging process, appearing deeper as the skin sags. Brow lift surgery is a great way to reverse the signs of aging and erase years from your appearance.

 

Am I a Good Candidate for Brow Lift Surgery?

 

If any of the above benefits could improve your appearance or quality of life, a brow lift surgery might be a good procedure for you to consider. In order to be eligible for this facial plastic surgery, you should be in good physical health, not smoke, and have a reasonable expectation for your results. On average, brow lift patients tend to be between the ages of 40 and 65, but surgery is not limited to this age range. To decide if brow lift surgery is a good choice for you, consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon for an evaluation and discussion about potential surgical changes and your own anticipated results.

Beauty Hacks: Stay Younger For Longer

Beauty Hacks: Stay Younger For Longer

Pexels

Aging is one of those bitter sweet moments in our lives. We’re growing and gaining even more experience and creating even more memories, but we’re also getting wrinkles… Now, although aging is natural, a quite beautiful in fact, it’s understandable if you’d like to push the years back a little. So don’t surrender yourself yet – you’ve still got a few more years in you.

Here are some tricks to keep you looking younger for longer.

Skin care

There are plenty of skin care products and moisturizers that claim to replenish the skin, giving the appearance of a younger look, and although they may make a slight difference, what you really need is the best antioxidant cream. This is a super charged moisturizer that is packed full of antioxidants and nutrients to fight all the free radicals while protecting your skin from aging. Not only will this prevent any future damage, but it will also reverse what has already been done.

Cheeks

Over time your cheeks decrease in volume, giving your face a thinner look which can sometimes make you appear older than you actually are. One trick to solve this problem is blusher. Dusting a bit on the apples of your cheeks (or lack of) will brighten up your look completely, making you look revitalized and youthful. Just make sure you choose the right shade. The trick here is that you don’t want it to look like you’re wearing blusher at all. For lighter skin tones, a peach works well. And for darker tones, a bronze.

Eyes

As you get older your eyes can sometimes sink in a little – it’s your job to make them stand out again. This is where the power or makeup really helps. If you feel as though your eyes have become quite hooded over time, apply a brown shade two tones darker than your own skin to your eyelid, and create the impression of a shadow where they used to be. Then all you need is a coat or two of mascara. This is what will make your eyes pop. If you have fair or light colored hair, black mascara may be a little too much, so instead invest in a brown shade. It’ll still do the job, but make you look a lot more natural.

Lips

As you get older, your lips can start to thin, leaving you with quite a miserable looking appearance. If this is the case, invest in some lip plumping glosses that will not only stimulate the natural collagen in your lips, but they will look juicy too. You should also make sure that you always have a good lip balm with you at all times. Who knows when your lips will decide to dry out and crack, so you should be prepared. Just like our skin needs a moisturizer to keep us hydrated, our lips need something too.

So now you have the tricks, put them to the test and see what works best for you. Just remember, you should never be embarrassed about getting older. You’re still living! Just with more experience.

5 Easy Ways To Achieve Radiant Looking Skin

5 Easy Ways To Achieve Radiant Looking Skin

For those of us who aren’t blessed with the complexion of Cate Blanchett, it can be hard to achieve anything close to the radiant skin look. You may have blotches and blemishes that you don’t merely want to cover up but that you want to get rid of. You’ve heard hundreds of random old wives tales, like carrying an acorn around in your pocket will leave you wrinkle-free, and you just don’t buy it. Take a look at these more sensible ways to achieve healthy, glowing skin.

Image by

Exfoliate

It’s vital that if exfoliating your grubby pores isn’t a key part of your skincare routine, it needs to be added immediately. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that can appear dry, flaky and blotchy from your face. This should leave a smoother surface on which to carry out the next stage of your skincare regimen. Ensure that you add the all important face toner to your skincare routine to remove oil build-up, unclogging your pores and allowing your skin to feel refreshed.

Cleansing

You could, of course, apply a bit of generic soap on a flannel and scrub away, but this won’t get you any closer to your goal of a glowing complexion. You need to rub your skin in gentle circles with whatever cleanser you choose. Look for products for sensitive skin containing natural ingredients. This way, your skin has less of a chance to react adversely to anything that may be synthetic.

Image by

Drink Well

To keep your skin healthy, just like any other organ of the body it needs to be hydrated at all times. Drink plenty of water, and if you want to go one step further when using H2O, try sucking on an ice cube. By doing this, you are cooling down your facial skin cells, resulting in a rosier cheeked complexion.

Boost Your Vitamins

Both Vitamins B and D can aid the regeneration of the skin’s cells and prevent you from looking red and having breakouts. Being deficient in either one of these vitamins could see your skin having a tendency to encounter spottiness and sweatier pores. Vitamin C has long been added to moisturisers as it is a powerful antioxidant that promotes healthy collagen. Sun damaged skin is also known to improve if a Vitamin C serum is used regularly.

Image by

Sleep

If you don’t want the dreaded grey, puffy bags under your eyes, it’s vital that you are getting a good night’s sleep. It isn’t necessarily about the quantity of your sleep, but the quality. Try and go to bed at a similar time each night to allow your body to fall into a healthy sleep routine. By getting some quality rest, you’ll wake up feeling refreshed, and this will be echoed in your complexion.

Achieving a radiant look isn’t easy, but if you look beyond your facial skin routine and also consider what you put into your body and how much rest you get, you’ll be able to strive for the healthy, glowing look.

How Exercise Influences Skin Health

By Guest Blogger, Matjaž

How Exercise Influences Skin Health

Everybody by now knows how exercise is extremely important for your heart health, improving bone mineral density, lung health, improving body composition and even lowering stress.

 

However, the topic of skin health in relationship to exercise is not often mentioned.

And that’s a shame as it should be. Exercise does have a very important influence on skin health.

Rezultat iskanja slik za exercise and skin health

EXERCISE AND SKIN HEALTH

In a systematic review and meta-analysis on exercise training intervention in relationship to cutaneous microvascular reactivity Lanting et al (2017) with seven different trials included found out a clear benefit of exercise training on improving skin health.

This makes sense as exercise improves blood flow to the body and skin is no exception to that.

Increased blood flow means more nutrients and oxygen will be delivered to your skin. But not only that. At the same time, more waste products are transported out of your skin cells.

Exercise in a way provides a natural and cost-effective way of cleaning and nourishing your skin cells at the same time.

 HOW REDUCED STRESS INFLUENCES SKIN HEALTH

Another mechanism by which exercise improves skin health is by its effects on reducing stress and anxiety.

The exact link between how reduced stress improves skin health is still under investigation, however, so far it’s safe to say that exercise has an important role in improving skin health through reduced stress.

 

HOW TO EXERCISE

As far as which type of exercise is best to achieve the best results of improving skin health it’s most probably aerobic types of exercises such as walking, jogging, hiking, cycling etc.

And as for the intensity of the exercise, light to moderate intensity has been shown to be best for lowering anxiety and stress levels in our body so it’s probably best to stick with this type of intensity if improving skin health is in your best interest.

WHEN AND WHERE TO EXERCISE

The last thing we have to take into consideration in regards to working out and skin health is, of course, the environment where we exercise.

When you train outside, especially during peak sun hours and especially during the summer you have to protect your skin from sun burns at all cost.

Sunburn damages your skin in a major way so be sure keep your training hours outside peak sun hours and be sure to apply sun screen whenever necessary.

 CONCLUSION

As you can clearly see exercise has a very important role in keeping your skin healthy mainly through improved blood flow and reducing stress and anxiety levels in our body.

Exercise is thus a very effective and more cost-effective way of improving skin health in comparison to other body creams, supplements or any other skin health products.

When exercising the best types of exercises for lowering stress are lower to moderate intensity aerobic types of exercises.

Also, be sure to protect your skin from excessive sun exposure when exercising.

Benefits Of Hyaluronic Acid

By Guest Blogger, Hannah D.

Cleansing dry skin is a tricky business. Any wrong product or ingredient can easily zap out the remaining moisture on your skin.

This, in the end, can spell more trouble.

Dry skin isn’t only unattractive, but it can also make you too conscious of yourself. You can end up with rough skin, flaking and even bleeding.

In choosing the right cleanser for dry skin, you need to pay close attention to its formula and ingredients. Make sure that there are no harsh components that can make your skin drier than it already is.

Pick products that have great hydrating properties. One of your best options is hyaluronic acid.

This ingredient is able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water. It can attract and retain moisture on your skin without being occlusive.

 For these properties, hyaluronic acid isn’t just great for dry skin. It also makes a great choice even for those who have oily and acne-prone skin.

 Hyaluronic acid can work wonders on aging skin, too. By keeping the skin plump and hydrated, it can essentially make wrinkles and fine lines a lot less prominent.

 To know more about this ingredient and how it can help you deal with your skin concerns, check out the infographic below.

A Safe and Natural Detox for Your Body

By Blogger Jenny H.

A Safe and Natural Detox for Your Body

Without a doubt, our bodies are naturally equipped with all the necessary resources to detox without any kind of external aid. Having said that, our bodies haven’t always had to deal with the same external threats and conditions as they come up against today – including metal and plastic chemicals found on kitchen equipment or in food packaging, cigarette smoke and volatile organic elements found in air fresheners.

According to the Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals, published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a total of 212 unwanted chemicals were found in the blood and urine samples of those who took part in the study. Therefore, it seems that knowing how to detox using safe and natural methods is useful to us in the world we live in today.

Safe methods for naturally detoxing your body

One of the safest and most effective ways of achieving a detox through diet is to give your liver and kidneys what they need to remain strong.

Liver and kidneys

The liver and kidneys are the two organs your body uses to naturally deal with toxins. The liver is a particularly clever organ that goes through two stages to achieve full detox. It firsts breaks down the toxic elements and then goes on to bind them to other molecules. To keep both your liver and kidneys functioning at their best, you need to consume foods rich in vitamins A, B, C and E. You also need to increase the levels of glutathione in your body. To do this you should increase the amount of dairy products, fish, meat and cheese that you consume on a daily basis.

Things to avoid

Cut alcohol and tuna out of your diet, choose filtered water over tap water and get away from the dangers of the city for a while – leaving car fumes, paint products and unwanted gases far behind you.

Don’t forget your skin

As it’s the largest organ in the human body, it really does deserve our time and attention. As a way of complementing the changes that you make to your diet, you can also spend more time in the sauna so that the harmful toxins lingering in your body can be steamed out of your system.

Detoxing methods that carry risks

Not all detoxing methods are backed by solid science. It’s important to thoroughly investigate the possible side effects of “detox-quick” solutions, as you could end up doing more harm to your body than good.

Emptying your colon

One such method to be wary of is the option to empty your colon. It’s true that the method has been around for a very long time, even dating back to ancient Greek and ancient Egyptian times, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s actually a good idea. According to physiologist, Steven Swoap, the process can alter the types of bacteria in your intestines and make it easier for new, perhaps unfriendly bacterial strains to settle in.

Similarly, The Journal of Family Practice identifies a number of known problems that have been caused by colon cleansing. These include cramping, abdominal pain, vomiting, blood poisoning and gas in the veins, which can sometimes be fatal.

Considering that not all detox methods are as safe and as natural as others, it’s a good idea to invest in methods that are linked to changes in diet and changes to your regular routine. That way, we’ll have the opportunity of seeing and feeling improvements without placing ourselves at risk.

How to get rid of whiteheads

How to get rid of whiteheads

Do you feel that when you were just about to take relief that you managed a mighty escape from breakouts, but now you are caught up with whiteheads? Fret not, for there is a solution for everything. Whiteheads and blackheads are the not so cool partners that leave your face looking that one step away from calling ‘clear skin’. Although whiteheads do not make your skin look bad as a breakout, these are certainly unhealthy for skin and guess out, they are a type of acne too!

Whiteheads and blackheads are called comedones which are non-inflammatory acne blemishes. When your tiny skin pores are clogged with sebum, they cause whiteheads. When these clogged pores with sebum and bacterial growth come in contact with air, they get oxidized and turn black- blackheads ultimately! Whiteheads make skin rough, and gives it a dull look. They are a sign that your skin is in great need of a proper skin care routine and help. There are many ways to prevent and remove whiteheads. Topical removal of whiteheads at a spa, using Salicylic acid and Benzoyl peroxide are few of the most effective and best ways for immediate results. However, if aren’t very keen about these methods you can always turn to home remedies that help to remove whiteheads. Here are few…

Face packs for whiteheads removal

Baking soda with water: A small amount of baking soda with water is one of the best remedies to fight against the bacterial build up on face that causes whiteheads. It also helps to balance the pH level in skin which will check on sebum production. Use this mixture as an exfoliator once in a week. If you have sensitive skin you can avoid this remedy and try others.

Lemon juice: Plain lemon juice for face is a brilliant hack. Its alpha hydroxyl acid content works to balance sebum, unclog blocked pores and fight bacterial build up, and also lighten the scars and marks left behind by whiteheads. Apply lemon juice on your face twice a week and wash off after 10 minutes.

Tea tree oil: This is one of the best oils that work or whiteheads. Tea tree oil is anti bacterial in nature and also an astringent. This means your skin pores are tightened and also bacterial activity is reduced to a great extent, which thereby suppresses whiteheads. Use plain tea tree oil for face, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and wash off.

You can also use other natural products to combat whiteheads. They include; apple cider vinegar, cornstarch, oatmeal, honey, walnut powder, apricot, ground almonds, cinnamon, etc.

Pay attention to…

·       Your diet: Consume a lot of vegetables and fresh fruits. They will help to clear out the toxin build up from body. Your skin will be naturally healthy which means less of sebum and whiteheads. Take Vitamin E and C supplements since they aid in skin renewal and repair. You can either include them as tomato face packs, lemon juice, orange juice, avocado mask, etc., or consume them directly.

·       Your skin care routine: Exfoliate twice a week and not more than that. Cleanse face twice a day without fail. Indulge in the use of facial oils to improve overall skin health. You can try Vitamin E oil, Kumkumadi Thailam, olive oil, etc. Keep hair away from face, change pillow cases regularly, avoid touching your face (you will be spreading the whiteheads without your knowledge), replace face towel with disposable tissues (to keep away bacterial build up), pamper your skin the amazing benefits of facials.

·       Your face products: Use cosmetic products that are non comedogenic, skin products that contain ingredients that are safe for your skin type (and do not cause you to break out). Clean your make up applicators regularly since they are the most viable source of bacteria.

5 Indicators Why You Might Need Rhinoplasty Revision

By, Dr. Vincent Marin

5 Indicators Why You Might Need Rhinoplasty Revision

Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most complicated procedures performed in the cosmetic arena. As a result, it is one of the procedures where we see the highest percentage of revisionary surgery. Some surgeons even specialize exclusively in revisionary rhinoplasty surgery alone. Thus, it is very important to do your homework and choose your surgeon wisely to reduce the risk of needing a second operation.

  1. Too much or too little was removed from your nose. Most patients requesting a rhinoplasty surgery want a smaller and more refined nose. In years past, surgeons over aggressively removed cartilage and bone from the nose leaving a pinched appearance with a constricted airway. The situation frequently led to the need for revisionary surgery. Some surgeons who were too conservative also have left too much tissue behind. This is an easier situation to remedy, but still requires a secondary operation. The goal of a successful rhinoplasty is to remove just enough to enhance the appearance of the nose while still providing sufficient support to maintain an open airway. Every patient is different and an experienced surgeon is required to assess the situation and choose the most effective treatment.
  2. Rhinoplasty is a surgery of millimeters – literally. Every millimeter makes a difference in rhinoplasty, and thus even the smallest discrepancy can be evident after surgery. If the nose does not appear perfect on the operating table, or as close to perfect as one can make it, it is likely to become an issue after surgery. Thus, you want to choose a physician who appreciates the intricacy of rhinoplasty surgery.
  3. Scar tissue is frequently the enemy in rhinoplasty. Once a surgeon has finished his/her surgery, they lose control of the operation. What this means is that the presence of scar tissue can distort or pull on the underlying bone and cartilage framework after the surgery is complete. Thus, there can be warping or movement of the tissues as a result of scar tissue contraction. This is normally evident several months after the conclusion of your surgery, and is not normally a result of an improperly performed surgery. If this does occur, frequently a revisionary surgery is required.
  4. You are a perfectionist. We frequently see patients who are requesting a rhinoplasty to be very detailed in their assessment of what is wrong with their nose before surgery. As a result, they frequently will search out any abnormalities, no matter how slight, after surgery. No surgeon can get a perfect result, and almost certainly there will become imperfections in the nose after the conclusion of even the best rhinoplasty. The goal in rhinoplasty is a significant improvement in one’s appearance, better balance and refinement and achieving the patient’s aesthetic goals – not perfection. Thus, it is important to accept this fact prior to undergoing any surgical procedure as we as surgeons do not have magic wands.
  5. You may have chosen the wrong doctor. It is important to make sure that your doctor has significant experience in rhinoplasty surgery. Many doctors, even well trained plastic and facial plastic surgeons, do not get enough experience with rhinoplasty, and as a result, have a higher revision rate. Additionally, your doctor could be either not be Board Certified or Certified in the wrong specialty. In most states, ANYONE who is licensed to perform ANY surgical procedures can legally perform cosmetic surgery – as long as they went to a weekend course, pay a fee and have a couple procedures supervised. Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and Facial Plastic Surgeons rigorously train for 5-7 years to learn the intricacies of these procedures, detailed anatomy, the proper finesse, and the management of any complications.

Do your homework before you decide to have any cosmetic surgical procedure.

Fight Aging Without Harming Yourself

Fight Aging Without Harming Yourself

In the fight against aging, we sometimes do more harm than good! Strange chemicals, strenuous exercises, and crash diets can often have the opposite effect to the one we want. There’s a difference between fighting the effects of aging and simply fighting a bloody war against your own body and well-being!

Stop stressing out!

Stress is a killer. It ruins your skin and your heart, making it difficult to stay healthy. Long-term exposure to stress has been linked to long-term depression, which really isn’t going to help your body or your mind as you age. And all that frowning is going to exacerbate your wrinkles!

Flickr

Destressing is an essential part of the anti-aging process, and it can be achieved either through exercise or even the occasional indulgence. Don’t dismiss the likes of meditation or yoga – may work wonders for you. Even sitting around for couple of hours and watching a film or playing some games can help. Just don’t do it for too long, because a sedentary lifestyle isn’t great for you! Speaking of which…

Get out of that chair and start exercising

A biology lesson for you: our bodies are meant to move. In order to keep our cells strong – skin cells, lung cells brain cells, – we need to signals to our body that we need those cells to be kept in plentiful supply The best way to signal this to our bodies? Regular exercise.

So many of us spending too much time sitting down. This is a sedentary lifestyle, and it slowly kills people. It causes your muscles to lessen in strength because they’re not being used. It can cause spinal damage, resulting in late-life hunching. The slow movement you associate with old people? More often than not, that lack of mobility is a symptom of a life devoid of proper exercise.

Look into treatment for hair loss and skin degradation

Age weaken the cells that keep both your skin taut and your hair intact. Taking action to prevent this degradation is important, but you shouldn’t be ashamed to look into treatments to fix existing damage.

While some people go through some pretty insane treatments to fight skin degradation and hair loss, this doesn’t mean you should dismiss all professional treatments. Botox is often portrayed as taking things too far, but the right Botox injection technique can provide natural-looking results. Those who are dealing with severe hair loss can look into surgical hair restoration, as long as they research it thoroughly and make themselves aware of the risks of working with the wrong surgeon.

Keep your mind stimulated

The brain is a muscle, and it can waste away just like any other muscle. You’re always using your brain – but a lot of people don’t really challenge their brain. Without the occasional challenge, your mind will lose its edge. Neurological exercises such as puzzles are good, and learning a new skill is definitely recommended.

Another thing: reading does amazing things for your brain. A simple, blood-pumping thriller will stimulate your brain – but why not take on some more challenging fiction? The works of David Foster Wallace, Thomas Pynchon, and Don DeLillo find the right mix of action and humor while also providing your brain a good workout.
