There have been a significant increase in reported side effects related to the use of cosmetics
The most common culprits: hair care products, skin care products and tattoo chemicals.
FDA does not directly regulate cosmetics and hair products, but keeps tabs of reports of side effects and complaints. Using products from widely known manufacturers with excellent reputation is your best way to protect yourself.

Unlike microneedling, microdermabrasion is a less invasive procedure.

The microdermabrasion device uses a powerful flow of fine crystals to remove a very superficial layer of skin. The procedure stimulates the production of new cells and collagen. The process is also known as exfoliation.

What microdermabrasion can do:

  • Improve age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Reduce fine lines and fine wrinkles
  • Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
  • Reduce acne and the scars left by acne
  • Improve overall skin, refreshing and rejuvenating

The procedure is relatively quick, 10 -20 minutes, and the skin has a healthy glow afterward. Occasionally, sensitive skin may develop short lasting, mild redness.

Microneedling is a procedure during which a sophisticated apparatus equipped with very fine needles gently penetrates the outer layer of the skin. This micro (meaning extremely small) skin punctures induce the skin to produce more collagen. The new collagen creates a powerful skin rejuvenation that fills in wrinkles, scars and acne scars.

Prior to the procedure, numbing cream is applied to the area to be treated and left on for 10 – 30 minutes to eliminate pain and discomfort.

It is important to note that somewhere between three and six microneedling treatments are required for optimal results. Treatments are typically spaced three weeks apart. After the procedure, there is minimal downtime, with the skin being slightly bruised for, most of the time, less than 24 hours.

The reality of hair loss is that, for many, it’s out of their control, a genetic predisposition about which they can do little. However, those who have the baldness gene can make their hair fuller and healthier, and they can slow the rate of hair loss. Typically, it takes a combined effort, including steps you can take yourself as well as medical treatment. There are even some exciting new applications that show promise in the battle against baldness. Today, let’s look at the options you have to combat hair loss.

Diet and nutrition

There’s no super food you can add to your game plan that will bring back lost hair, though if you’re living on fast food, you may accelerate thinning and lost hair. A well-balanced diet with a good range of essential nutrients is as necessary for hair maintenance as it is for any other system in your body. B vitamin deficiencies, in particular, can lead to poor hair growth, since these are essential for the development of new hair cells. A diet full of leafy greens, such as spinach, kale, and romaine lettuce, and lean proteins, including eggs, chicken, fish, and pork, will assure you have the B vitamin building blocks your hair needs.

Medications

The Food and Drug Administration has so far approved only two drugs to treat hair loss. Minoxidil, which is also used to treat high blood pressure, helps to slow the rate of hair loss. It can form some new hair growth, but this is typically thin and weak, as well as being limited to the crown. It’s unlikely you’ll see new growth at your hairline. Finasteride, originally developed to prevent prostate cancer, blocks production of a hormone that kills off hair follicles, causing male pattern baldness. Some men experience reduced sexual desire and impotence as a side effect of finasteride, however. Shampoos containing Nioxin show little promise in slowing hair loss.

Hair transplantation

Perhaps the best traditional method for hair replacement, transplants relocate healthy hair on your body to thinning and bald spots. Though a fairly reliable method of re-growing hair, transplants are expensive and time-consuming and require up to two weeks to recover. Some methods can leave substantial scarring, which could show through shorter hairstyles.

New rejuvenating technologies

Laser stimulation of the scalp is non-surgical, painless treatment with little in the way of side effects. The principle behind laser treatment of hair loss is that improving blood flow to the scalp helps supply oxygen and nutrients to slow the rate of hair growth, as well as thickening existing hair. On their own, laser treatments won’t start overwhelming new hair growth, but in combination with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, results often show greater promise.

PRP therapy takes a sample of your own blood and then uses a centrifuge to concentrate platelets, which contain growth factor hormones. These hormones signal to naturally occurring stem cells to start regenerative growth. When injected into areas of hair loss, PRP therapy provides additional resources for new hair growth that’s encouraged by laser stimulation. Although results vary depending on the extent and aggressiveness of your hair loss, the combination of laser and PRP treatments is the next wave in hair loss therapy.

At the Advanced Rejuvenation Center, we use the Theradome™ laser phototherapy system in combination with PRP injections for our patients wishing to improve the quality and quantity of their own hair.

I have many patients who have put great effort into maintaining or recovering their ideal body weight, only to find that they are disappointed with the way their bodies retain stubborn reminders of weight gain or the aging process. It’s a common problem because, while we can selectively tone muscles through targeted exercise, we have no say about how our bodies handle stores of fat. This is a process of genetics, body type, gender, and age.

In the past, surgical removal of fat was one of the few interventions that could adjust your body’s shape, and if you were after a simple fine-tuning of your profile, this may have been too extreme for you. New technologies have opened up treatments that are ideal for putting the finishing touches on the body shape that you want.

I am proud to offer SculpSure® laser and truSculpt® 3D radiofrequency (RF) treatments through Advanced Rejuvenation Centers. Although each device uses its own fundamental technology, both selectively remove stores of fat from affected parts of your body.

Treatment Zones

Though each patient is different, most of our bodies seem to share spots of stubborn fat retention. Most commonly, these are around the midsection of the abdomen – the belly and love handles. Hips, back, buttocks, and thighs are often resistant to fat loss too, perhaps each on its own or in combination with others. Even the area below the chin can be a trouble spot, often creating an older look in people who have no other fat retention issues.

The problem with these fat stores is that they’re located well under the skin. Called adipose tissue, the need for cells that store energy in the form of fat came from an earlier time in human development, when food sources were fewer and far between. When there is plenty of food available, the body stores extra calories in the form of fat as protection against periods of famine.

Since adipose tissue isn’t aware there’s a grocery store just down the street, we need to have a way to remove these extra cells and, ideally, without cutting the skin.

Through the Skin

Both SculpSure and truSculpt can work their magic transcutaneously – through your skin. Although SculpSure uses laser light energy and truSculpt uses RF energy, each device works similarly and creates the same conditions, which leads to disrupted adipose tissue that the body removes and does not replace.

The secret is in the selective warming of adipose tissue, where your excess fat stores reside. In both cases, the transmitted energy is largely ignored by your outer skin. Instead, both the light and radio energy pass through and are absorbed by the adipose layer. As energy gets absorbed, heat is created, and the adipose layer warms to a temperature called the coagulation point.

Once at this temperature, your body naturally senses that this tissue is damaged, and it starts a process of disposal. Cells slowly break down and leave the body through the lymphatic system. It’s a gentle process, so the results take time to develop. Many people require several sessions to reach their personal body sculpting targets, though nearly everyone sees improvements in a matter of weeks.

Since your body doesn’t need to store more excess calories, the lost adipose tissue is gone permanently. This is a great motivator for you to continue your weight maintenance targets, and you can be proud of the body you can truly call your own.
