In today’s world of beautiful decors, impressive websites, and eye-catching advertisements, it is quite difficult to know that the person you’re trusting to do your injectables is qualified to being doing it. Spas and “media-spas” are constantly bombarding the public with special offers and enticing deals for Botox and fillers at “better than physician” prices, but bargain shopping in the cosmetic industry isn’t always the best idea, and can sometimes be devastating like it was for this woman. Please make sure you know whether or not your injector is qualified, and don’t let price be the deciding factor. You may save a few hundred dollars at a medi-spa, but you may end up spending thousands to correct what goes wrong. Read the full story by clicking here, and as always, let us know if you have any questions or comments. We’re always happy to help.

DID YOU KNOW that a laser can be used to permanently reduce the number of hyperactive sweat glands in the same way that it reduces the number fat cells during laser liposuction?
Well, it’s true, and that is why you may sometimes see this procedure referred to as “SweatLipo”. There is no actual liposuction involved in the treatment of excessive sweating, but the laser fiber that is used can be the same or similar in both procedures.

If you’re looking for tighter skin with less fine lines and wrinkles, and a smoother, more youthful texture, laser skin tightening might be the answer!
Nonsurgical technology is one of the most rapidly advancing sections of the cosmetic world, and that means tremendous results are now possible without surgery. In the past, tighter, smoother skin was only possible with face, eye, or neck lifting surgery, but now deep dermal heating with highly specialized lasers can accomplish similar results with almost no downtime!

A new study from German researchers suggests that Botox is an effective treatment for clinical depression!
In their study, men and women being pharmacologically treated for clinical depression received Botox injections to their glabellar region (the area between the eyes), and their level of depression was assessed 6 weeks later. In 80% of these patients, their level of depression improved significantly (in both subjective and objective measures). The patients noted that they generally felt better, and their scores on scientific examinations designed to measure their level of depression improved. In the placebo group, only 20% of patients noted an improvement.
“This is a very interesting study,” says New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia. “There are quite a few people in Manhattan that deal with significant levels of stress on a daily basis, and I’ve heard from many of them that they generally ‘feel better’ after their Botox treatments. They say things like ‘I just don’t feel as stressed out when my Botox kicks in’, and I’ve been hearing these testimonials so frequently that it is ironic that this study was just published.”
Dr. Vendemia adds, “It makes sense if you think about it. When you look angry, frustrated or tired all the time, people react to you as if you are those things, and that starts a feedback loop that can become a vicious cycle that keeps you feeling angry, frustrated and tired. Botox interrupts that feedback loop, and not only changes how you feel, but changes how others react to you.”
