I HAVE GREAT NEWS FOR YOU…

(This is the text I woke up to one morning from Beauty and The Bag’s Editor in Chief Wendy Lewis)

????? I responded quickly wondering if perhaps I had won a Pulitzer for one of my groundbreaking articles on microneedling or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) LOL.

(True story:  I never knew I had flanks.)

A back-handed compliment, to be sure, but once you are told you have flanks (by your editor who was known as the Knife Coach for her guidance on all things cosmetic surgery in her past life), there is nothing you w

There’s National Inner Beauty Day, National Lipstick Day, National No Makeup Day and a host of other commemorative occasions, mostly celebrated on social media.

You know that look you see when you catch yourself in a mirror on a day where you’re over stressed, over tired and just angry at the whole world? That’s RBF, code for “resting bitch face”, and we’re all subject to it some of the time. Think FLOTUS.

But there is a remedy for RBF that can change your look and your outlook too. The procedure may take 20 minutes and can range anywhere from hundreds to thousands, depending on how intensive the treatment is. It is also not permanent, so you will need to check in for touch-ups every 4-6 months to a year or more.

“Every injector may use slightly different techniques to address the “RBF” condition, however BOTOX and other toxins with or without
