    Understanding the physiology of cellulite and the other causes for cellulite helps understand the various treatment options in helping to diminish or eliminate cellulite.  Cellulite is mostly heredity and in women there is a strong hormonal element (estrogen dominance) that contributes to the appearance of cellulite.  Diet, social habits, and other types of cellulite can be treated depending upon the physiology and locations of these cellulite areas.

    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. […]

    Healing with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

    By: | Tags: , , , ,

    Healing Damaged Tissue Recent advances in PRP technology have made it possible for Dr. Tess to promote healing, reduce inflammation and speed recovery without surgery. When activated in the body, platelets in the blood release regenerative cells known as “growth factors.” PRP contains several types of growth factors that naturally stabilize and repair tissue while helping to form new, healthy blood cells. Without PRP, injured tissues are often unable to repair themselves because they lack adequate blood supply. By using PRP, Dr. Tess is able to provide the body with the […]

    5 Easy Nutrition Tips

    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 […]

    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 […]
