    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.

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 […]

    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. […]

    By: | Tags: , , , ,

    Here are five easy-to-implement nutrition tips that will help increase your vitality and support your health: 1. EAT OUT LESS We all love restaurants but there’s a reason their food tastes so good: lots of butter, oil, sugar and salt. By visiting fewer restaurants you’ll avoid over-sized portions, lots of empty calories and fat. We’re not saying never go to restaurants, but perhaps limit it to once-a-week or special occasions. 2. DRINK YOUR FOOD; EAT YOUR WATER In other words, eat slower, chew more and swish your water around in your […]

    5 Effective Solutions for Adult Acne

    By: | Tags: , , , , ,

    Almost everyone has tried conventional acne therapies and approaches to acne–creams, cleansers, TV products, prescription drugs, and other home remedies–to little or no effect. 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.

    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 […]
