It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to a close, and it’s time for the kiddos to head back to school. As the lazy days at the beach are traded in for packing lunches and getting to the bus stop on schedule, it means you should be able to steal a bit of “me time” while the little ones are off learning math and writing. Take your own lesson in science, and find out what advanced aesthetic medical treatments can do to improve anything from wrinkles and sun damage to unwanted fat that crept up while you were enjoying those summer barbecues.

Smoothing Lines & Wrinkles
Keep your post-vacation look going with wrinkle releasing treatments and those that add fullness back to your face. With the world’s most popular cosmetic treatment, BOTOX, you can relax lines and wrinkles around and between the eyes, as well as on the forehead. A targeted range of Juvéderm hyaluronic acid fillers can soothe a tired look, plump your lips, or fill lines around your mouth. And by combining a Micro-Needling and PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment series, you can minimize everything from lines to pores while achieving a glowing skin surface.

Anyone suffering from skin that sags or has lost its firmness knows that creams, serums, and home remedies can only accomplish so much. Whether loose from weight loss, sun damage, or simply getting older, skin laxity signifies age and can make you look older than your years.

Luckily, there is an effective solution that, just like creams, is completely non-invasive. What’s different is that it actually works!

The cutting-edge treatment called Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to enable you to regain firmness on your face, neck, or virtually any area of the body. By sending targeted heat deep below the surface of the skin, Ultherapy stimulates the body to increase its natural collagen production, which is responsible for providing skin’s firmness, thickness, and elasticity. With just a single treatment, Ultherapy produces significant results that last for years.

In the world of aesthetic procedures, there are the noninvasive ones and the invasive ones. And for every beauty concern that you could possibly think of, there’s an option out there for it—some of which involves surgery and some doesn’t.

Not every noninvasive treatment out there is going to address every problem. And, while some nonsurgical techniques can lead to improvement, they may not garner the same result as what you may get with surgery.

While cosmetic enhancements, such as fillers and Botox, are still (unfortunately) considered taboo in today's society, surprisingly, the number of people getting work done is going up and up. In fact, in 2015, Americans were injected more than 6.6 million times, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, which is a whopping 40 percent increase from five years ago. And now, those 6 million and counting have one more option to consider when booking their next appointment, as the FDA just approved a brand-new filler: Juvéderm Vollure XC.

Can you guess what is the #1 skincare practice you must do? It’s actually quite simple - wear sunblock every day. Shielding your skin from the sun’s damaging rays not only helps protect from skin cancer, it also provides significant anti-aging benefits. And using sunblock also extends the life of facial treatments from laser resurfacing to BOTOX.

In today's not-so-shocking news: People are officially interested in injectable, non-invasive treatments. (It's about damn time, folks.) We've recently reported that, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), an estimated 7 million injection procedures, including Botox, were performed in the last year alone. And that number just continues to rise. According to the experts, they've seen an influx of younger patients opting for preventative treatments sooner rather than later, but how soon it too soon? For the full rundown, we reached out to dermatologists across the country to nail down the exact age, if interested, to begin Botox. The takeaway? Whenever you damn well please. Yes — really.

You may love the way your doctor wields his or her needle to inject your favorite fillers and injectables, giving you the look you’ve always wanted. But for the most part, doctors like to use these products off-label, meaning for a purpose (albeit safe) other than what they are FDA-approved for. We asked six expert injectors what their favorite under-the-radar uses are for injectables and fillers—their answers may surprise you.

To diminish the look of cellulite and dimples
New York dermatologist Gervaise Gerstner, MD, likes to use filler to treat dimples and cellulites on the thighs. “There are a plethora of perfectly sculpted ladies who are 99.99 percent perfect but they obsess over very small dimples or fat pockets. When we use filler to fill in the divots or dimples, it also helps to lift the skin so the appearance of some of that superficial crepiness and cellulite is diminished.”
