    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.

    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 […]
