Skin Care and Mental Health

Skin Care and Mental Health Recently I noticed many of my clients were going through life changing circumstances such as divorce, losses, and the like. Questions about their appearance and weight which resulted from these circumstances, had a direct impact on how they saw themselves. Yes mental health matters…and it matters both ways: on how we see ourselves and on how we tolerate and react to the treatments. For example, my young client, who came with her mother for laser, started screaming when she saw the machine angled towards her as a result of anxiety. Furthermore, mental health affects how we take care of ourselves in terms of sleep,...

Peels and Exfoliation

Why peel? Chemical peels have been used for a very long time for exfoliation of the skin, for removing dead cells, and for helping in the skin’s natural processes. Peels can help treat different conditions from acne, scars, hyperpigmentation, and more. They have been very popular because of their effectiveness and lower cost relative to other procedures. While there are different types of peels with different components ranging from mild to deep, in my opinion several milder peels are better than one deep one. To me these peels, preserve your epidermis, yet result in excellent benefits to your skin. Mild peels will exfoliate superficially, while medium peels will...

LET’S TALK EXCESS HAIR…

Aside from paying your taxes and the fact that we are on this earth temporarily, another solid truth is that many of us don’t like excess hair. In fact, laser hair removal has been proven to be one of the most psychologically rewarding cosmetic procedures due to its impact on how we feel about ourselves. When we were babies, we had terribly cute Vellus Hair, which is simply the baby fine colorless hair that covers our body. But then comes puberty and hormonal changes in our body and as a result, some of this vellus hair is stimulated by androgens (hormones) to become darker, curlier, and coarser....

Nutraceuticals: Are They For Real?

I happen to believe in supplements. While there has been controversial evidence as to their effectiveness, I have felt better when I take supplements, especially when I’m too busy to focus on eating healthy, or when I crave that piece of cake. Given the importance of nutrition in our body, and in our case the skin, I found the topic interesting. After all, “there are several legs in a stool” and many wellness and skincare weapons in our arsenal. After doing some research, I particularly enjoyed reading Dr. Steve Chaneys’ conclusions from a couple of his studies. The first concerns personalized nutrition and the second, is the role...

The Phases of Aging

Our Teens When I was in my teens, I used to look at the mirror and admire without ever imagining that the signs of aging could slowly appear in our faces. At that age, being 28 was already old. Regardless of the situation, I realized that those who took care of themselves at a young age, ended with a better appearance and complexion. After realizing the importance of caring for ourselves at all ages, we would like to recommend a regime for our younger population. This age group is more prone to acne that others, so acne is at the top of our list. While laser acne treatments in...
