Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos, Bill Murray… Acne scars can show up in many shapes and sizes, from deep to shallow and even raised. They are often unsightly and painful memories of breakouts gone awry, made worse by the fact that most of these scars are almost impossible to camouflage with makeup. Artefill, the long lasting injectable filler, can be a welcome solution for treating acne scars.
Suneva Medical will be starting a 150-patient multi-center study to learn more the effect of Artefill on acne scars. According to Santa Monica Dermatologist and study investigator Dr. Ava Shamban, “Artefill is a great solution for my regular filler patients who want to correct facial

Everyone wants to take some years off but most of us don’t want to go in for the downtime, costs and ordeal of invasive surgery. We know that there are many effective laser and light based treatments to address skin imperfections such as sun spots, fine lines and skin tightening, but when you hit your 40s, you might want something more uplifting.

ANEW CLINICAL DERMA-FULL X3 – This is by far the most interesting looking product I have seen in a long time. The swirl of bluish, silver glitter winding its way through this small, clear jar is very intriguing. I must admit, this is the first Avon product I have ever tried. And, I must add, if they all perform this well I need to get an Avon lady pronto! This light scented gel goes on easily, and smoothly. I have sensitive skin and I have not noticed any tingling, nor redness after applications. A tiny bit goes a long, long way. It leaves your face feeling a tiny bit sticky, and looking a little shiny. However this super concentrated facial filling serum delivers the results it promises. After just a few uses I noticed a my skin texture becoming more smooth, firm, and seemingly brighter. After a week of use I am happy to look in the mirror and see a refreshed, moisturized face looking back at me. This plumping gel contains injectable grade hyaluronic acid which gives it its superpowers. Hylauronic acid is naturally produced by the skin, but like many things, production decreases with age.
FINAL VERDICT– (GGI – Gotta Get It) Is a new face possible from a jar? Unfortunately not, but the results combined with the ease of use and cost make it a must have. 1 oz. $54 available at www.avon.com
