Posted by 05.09.17

The newest crop of injectables hailing from global pharma giants Allergan (JUVEDERM) and Galderma (RESTYLANE) are changing the face of the so-called ‘Liquid Facelift.’ Whereas hyaluronic acid gel fillers used to be considered somewhat interchangeable like Coke and Pepsi, these novel products have distinct differences in how they work and where they can be used that set each of them apart.

In December 2016, Galderma introduced Restylane Refyne (for the treatment of moderate to severe, facial wrinkles and folds) and Restylane Defyne (for moderate to severe, deep facial wrinkles and folds). These new products to the US are marketed under the brand Emervel in Europe.

When you want to plump up lines and furrows or restore facial volume that’s declined with age, look no further than hyaluronic acid (HA). A naturally-occurring component of our skin, this skin-rejuvenating molecule is capable of holding 1,000 times its weight in water, making it a superior hydrator when injected into the skin or slathered on it. Whether you want to start slow or hit the doctor’s office ASAP, here’s your guide to hopping on the HA bandwagon.

The mist: Skin Inc. Pure Serum-Mist ($55)
Packed with low molecular weight HA (i.e. smaller molecules that have an easier time getting into the skin), moisture-holding humectants and mineral-rich Onsen water, this multitasking

FROM PRO TO FAUX: ALL ABOUT EYES

Posted by 03.30.16

Under-eye bags, dark circles and puffiness make us look exhausted when, well, we sort of are, but just don’t want anyone else to know it.

This is why more than 70 percent of facial plastic surgeons reported an uptick in requests for eyelid procedures to look less tired in 2015, making these surgeries among the biggest trends spotted in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’s annual statistics.

We know this area needs some serious TLC as a recent study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Washington, DC found that the eyes age earlier and faster than the rest of the face. In fact, there may be up to a 10-year differen

SUPERSTAR ANTI-AGING INGREDIENT – HYALURONIC ACID

Posted by 03.03.16

When it comes to anti aging, hyaluronic acid has got the chops. This superstar ingredient has many skin supporting benefits when applied topically. It provides antioxidant protection, anti-inflammatory properties, and can plump up your skin like no other. Since the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases as you age — losing around 50% of what you had in your 20s by the time you’ve hit 50 — it’s important to replenish what you’ve lost. Besides giving your skin’s moisture content the mega-boost it needs, it also strengthens the skin’s outer layers so it looks and feel softer, smoother and plumper. And we all know that soft, smooth, plumped up skin is younger looking skin!
