My Story of How I Got into The Wellness Business

Many of you when coming to my office and looking at all the titles I have on my wall, which include one masters, two post-graduates, and numerous certifications and diplomas, have asked me, “why so many and how did you land on the wellness business?”. To me this is a very legitimate question, given that while I was an undergraduate, I obtained a degree in Economics from an Ivy League University, followed by an MBA from a prestigious university in Canada, and work experience in the largest companies of this country. Furthermore, I went on and obtained a CFA and a CFP®: all indicatives of a very strong...

Melasma Treatments

Melasma is a skin disorder that causes discoloration on the skin. More often than not, Melasma appears on the face in the form of dark patches, making your skin tone uneven. Although the symptoms of this disorder are superficial, you may have a genetic predisposition to Melasma; as it has been recorded to be more prominent in people with tan skin tones than in those with light or dark skin tones. Other components that increase your risk of developing Melasma include sun exposure; hormonal changes experienced during pregnancy or through the use of oral contraceptives and strong skin care products. Treating Melasma generally begins with protecting your skin...

Essential Oils

There has been much debate about the validity of the magic of essential oils. The conclusion is that in humans, odors are related to not only food and sexual activity, but to social and psychological well-being. With respect to health, exposure to unpleasant odors will not only decrease productivity on the job, but will also increase the illness rate. The body's response to an odor is extremely complex, and evidence does not substantiate whether it is a result of a direct chemical effect or of simply a recognition factor, but it does have an impact on our entire body. Such impact will also vary depending on whether we...

Melanomas

Rarely it has happened that a client undergoing a cosmetic laser procedure in Miami, laser skin tightening in Miami, or skin rejuvenation will notice irregularities on their skin after the treatment. While these are not caused by the procedure, these can be uncovered by it, which is a positive awareness for the client. There are many skin disorders that we will be discussing, but our topic for today is Melanomas. Melanomas are derived from melanocytes. When these cancerous lesions have a high potential for invasion and metastasis, these are classified as malignant. They usually occur in sun-exposed areas, but can also occur anywhere in the body, including the eyes! However, even if these...

Are You Protecting Yourself from Infections?

As a skin care specialist, preventing infections are at the heart of what we do, whether it is laser hair removal, laser cosmetic procedures, laser skin tightening, etc. So what are the possible routes of infection? These vary but the most common are: person to person, contact with infected animals, contact with fomites (inanimate objects that harbor bacteria or viruses), contact with vectors (animals that transmit diseases to a man or other animals), ingesting contaminated food or water, and inhalation of airborne agents. What are the some methods for preventing the spread of infection? Just like our grandmothers say, washing our hands can go a long way. The CDC recommends...

The Movement and Evolution towards Wellness

Many people these days are staggered by the alarming rates of divorce and difficulties in relationships. After talking with many of my clients and helping them achieve their wellness goals, it is obvious to me that we are going through an extremely positive transformation in our relationships. The reasons for marriage are changing and happiness is now one of them. Not that it wasn't before, but in the past, the ability to make it in life was more of a priority. As the world evolves and our right brain gains more importance, feelings are now a priority. Now more than ever, this century new marriages are a result...

The biggest problem with men and their skin …

This month our blog will be dedicated to men. The biggest problem with men and their skin care is that they neglect their skin a lot more than women. Men's skin is biologically different from women's: 1) Male hormones stimulate more oil production that leads to more congested pores. 2) Men have larger pores and more sebaceous glands, whose production does not decline with time as much as women's. 3) Men's skin is thicker. 4) Men's skin is more acidic and hence more prone to dryness. 5) Water evaporates on men's skin at a higher rate than that of women.  6) Men's skin is more sensitive and likelier to exhibit more severe  conditions...

Facial Skin

The Reactive Nature of Facial Skin The facial skin, delicate and expressive, is particularly attuned to both environmental and emotional stimuli. It reacts and adapts to the world around and within us, exhibiting visible responses to various factors: Erythema and Hyperemia: A blush from a glass of wine or increased blood flow from exposure to steam might seem fleeting. However, these could also be indicative of underlying conditions like rosacea, where the skin tends to be more reactive and prone to redness. Autoimmune Reflections: Consider Lupus, an autoimmune disease that can manifest on the skin as a distinctive "butterfly" rash, providing a visual clue to internal inflammatory processes. ...

Longevity

General Care A key factor for longevity is where we live, not education, marital status, or wealth.  Many scientists believe that only about 25% of how we live is dictated by our genes. The remaining 75% is determined from our thoughts, lifestyle choices, and the equilibrium and harmony in our lives. There are 90 year olds working in the fields of some countries!  ...
