    Micro-needling Treatment with Dr Tess of Beverly Hills

    By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

    Micro-Needling (also referred to as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a skin therapy that involves puncturing the skin using a grouping of tiny sterile needles. The purpose of micro-needling is to promote healing with-out scars and encourage new collagen production similar to fractional laser treatments. Unlike the laser, there are minimal side-effects or down-time micro-needling. At Dr. Tess of Beverly Hills, we are proud to offer the Dermapen®. Dermapen is safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin micro-needling rollers due to its unique vertical micro […]

    Tips for healthy hair growth

    By: | Tags: , , , , ,

    1. Don’t Style Wet Hair Wet hair is brittle and far more susceptible to damage from brushing or styling, especially if you use heat as with a blow dryer or flat iron. Let your hair air dry whenever possible to avoid unnecessary breakage. If you absolutely must brush your hair right after washing, use a wide-tooth comb or hair pick. Blow dry with a diffuser if you need it and use the lowest heat setting (or no heat!) Also, irons with ceramic plates are easier on your hair than plastic. […]

Many encounter significant side effects from current treatments like topical medications and antibiotics, which makes it even more frustrating when these therapies are not working. Even worse, acne that persists often leads to long-term scarring. Why it happens For most women, hormonal changes, either around the monthly cycle or during a menopausal shift, are the culprit.

    Quick Facts about Laser Hair Removal

    By: | Tags: , , , ,

    If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles.

    Chin Fat Reduction with FDA-Approved KYBELLA®

    By: | Tags: , , , , ,

    How KYBELLA® Works The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. What is the downtime? Normal side effects include bruising and swelling, like […]
