Firming lotions are great at preventing sagging or can provide small improvements in sagging skin if utilized properly.

The process of looking for a plastic surgeon can be stressful enough, but the actual concept of going under the knife can cause even more fears to rise. Between the idea of complications from anesthesia, the cost of the procedure and the appearance after the surgery, many people would rather struggle with their appearance and confidence, than take the risk of having an anti-aging procedure like a facelift. And facelifts can be pretty intimidating, especially because the incision can be more invasive than other procedures. Fortunately, there’s a nonsurgical facelift that has been developed, which incorporates a combination of dermal …

When it comes to the maturing of one’s skin, the process can affect each individual differently. Some embrace the lines tracing across their cheeks with a loving embrace, viewing them as reminders of all their joyful times. Others view the deepening creases as too great of a reminder of their lost youth or they feel their appearance doesn’t reflect their interior age. So, they begin looking into their options, and most turn to a facelift as a first option. But, because each face ages in a unique manner, there are various procedures developed to target specific areas of concern. When …

Are you an ideal candidate for Chin Reduction Surgery (Genioplasty)? Although Genioplasty often is associated with chin implants, many men and women struggle with the opposite issue.

These problems can cause the face to look excessively masculine, over-elongate the face, or may create visible imbalance that may cause the rest of the facial features (such as …

And though many of these quirky traits add charm and character, some are not as favorable as others. These traits are not only ones that affect them internally though. Sadly, our appearance impacts how the world and society views us, as well. As unfair as these assumptions are, it is difficult to breakdown these established, instinctual biases. …
