Bad News for Plastic Surgery

These are just two of the findings in a new poll by Zogby

Remember, the back of your neck and the

What is the
Diamond Face Lift?
Dermabrasion is a
surgical technique that uses a diamond-coated disc to
literally sand-off the superficial layer of the skin. True
dermabrasion is associated with some bleeding, requires good
anesthesia, and can provide dramatic cosmetic improvement of
facial wrinkles. I think this is the "diamond face lift".
term "micro-dermabrasion" refers to an ineffective technique
that only provides temporary feelings of smoothness, and
does not improve deep wrinkles.
fashioned dermabrasion using tumescent local anesthesia is
probably the most successful technique for eliminating deep
wrinkles on the upper lip. The success of dermabrasion
depends on a high degree of surgical skill. Some cosmetic
surgeons do not have experience in doing the dermabrasion
procedure. Lip wrinkles which are not too deep can also be
treated by laser resurfacing.
Laser removal of dark hair on upper lip
and around the mouth
Dark hair on our upper
lips is sometimes more than a nuisance. We tweeze and
tweeze, dermaplane, and sometimes resort to shaving this
area just to rid our faces of those pesky, hormonally
imbalanced produced hairs.
good news is that in less than 15 minutes, the Cool Glide
laser, the only laser machine approved by the FDA for
treatment of all skin colors, can effectively reduce or
eliminate dark hair without discoloring the skins pigment.
There is no need to suffer from painful electrolysis ever
again, as your unwanted hairs can be safely removed from any
part of your body in the shortest possible time imaginable.
What a thrill to feel that you can accomplish hair removal
from any part of your body in the most extreme shortest
time, and have it done without any discomfort or pain.
treatment is simple, easy, and smooth, because this new
technology has a cooling effect on skin during treatment,
and there are no side effects. This laser hair removal
system can be as permanent as the old needle electrolysis.
Neither treatment is a one time shot because humans
regardless of gender or color have three dominant hair
growth cycles. Only one cycle out of the three is the only
time that the hair follicle or root can be destroyed. This
cycle occurs 4 to 6 times each year. Therefore, it will
require several treatments to eliminate your unwanted
sister has had a very nice result using Cool Glide; the cost
for her upper lip and around her mouth was $250.00. (She had
approximately 25 pulses @ $10 per pulse) She has scheduled
another treatment as it was recommended that she wait 6 to 8
weeks before resuming her treatment. Not only has her
facial hair been dramatically decreased, she believes the
laser may have stimulated collagen production as upper lip
lines are diminished.
How to use Vitamin C Serum
Our Vitamin C Serums use Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, the
potent and stable form of Vitamin C, to stimulate skin cell
regeneration, production of collagen, elastin and other
important components of the skin. The state of the art
formulas plump your skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles
as it lightens skin tone and age spots. MAP is potent and
you will be pleasantly surprised to see your skin texture
become more resilient.
Vitamin C Serum is always applied first
to clean skin. Liberally apply this skin enhancing formula
twice daily to your face, neck, back of neck, chest and the
back of your hands. Gently massage it into your skin using

End of Aging
our resident programmer, came back from a few days rest
raving about how good he was feeling. He said his
energy had improved in three days after beginning a regimen
of Alpha Lipoic Acid combined with L-Carnitine. He had
read an article in the November 2003 Reader's Digest,
entitled “The End of Aging” describing how Bruce Ames, a
professor of biochemistry at the University of California at
Berkeley, has tackled aging, paying particular attention to
the possible link between free radical damage and cancer.
in Italy in the mid 1990's, Ames learned that a dietary
supplement, acetyl-L-carnitine, or ALCAR, was being marketed
as a pick-me-up and according to this article, he understood
why: ALCAR is a natural biochemical that helps cells
produce energy. When he returned to the states, he
began feeding his old rats this amino acid and within weeks,
they seemed re-energized.
ALCAR did not lower the free radical levels so he introduced
the anti-oxidant, Alpha Lipoic Acid to the rats diets.
The article quotes Ames as saying, With the two
supplements, these old rats got up and did the Macarena.
The brain looked better; they were full of energy.
The results were equivalent of making an 80- year-old person
look and act middle-aged.
two nutrients can be purchased at most health food stores
and the recommended dosage is 200 milligrams of alpha lipoic
acid and 500 milligrams of acetyl-L-carnitine. I, too,
have begun taking these supplements and my energy level has
soared, so you might want to try this combination as well.

outfit, or go shopping for something similar.
Shoes... what can I say. By all means wear something that is
comfortable, but know when to toss them.

conditions does it target?
Non-Surgical dermaplaning is a procedure that
gives your skin a smoother appearance. It targets acne
damage, dull skin and fine lines & wrinkles. Using
short, precise movements, an aesthetician wields a scalpel
across your face, scraping away dead skin cells on the
surface. The treatment typically takes 20 minutes, with the
cost averaging about $200 per session in LA and NY.
Dermatologists recommend one treatment per month for three
months in a row. Because the treatment is gentle and
chemical-free, it's a good choice for people with sensitive
skin. Pain factor: Zero.
Added benefit: Facial
hair is removed in the dermaplaning process so your face
looks and feels smooth.
Cleaning of Your Face
use a clean washcloth or sponge on your face so that
bacteria are not encouraged to invade your face. Apply a dime size amount of cleanser to your face, neck and
chest with your fingertips.
Allow your cleanser to sit on your face at least 20
seconds after it is applied.
Use warm, tepid water and your washcloth or sponge to remove
the cleanser using delicate, upward strokes. There is no
need for rubbing or scrubbing.
Pat your face dry with a clean towel and begin your
skin care routine.
