As you age, the skin on the entire body loses volume and elasticity – and unfortunately, the face is typically the first area of the body that is affected. Whether you realize it or not, your facial features are used all the time for smiling, speaking, thinking, showing any kind of emotion, stress, eating, yawning, and more. The constant use of the facial muscles pulls, stretches, and folds the skin. Over time, this constant use will show signs on the face. Marionette lines are the “parentheses lines” around the mouth.

Those who choose to have cosmetic surgery do so with careful consideration and research before they make their decision. Not only does choosing to have elective surgery a brave decision, but it also requires time and money set aside for this specific purpose.

Microdermabrasion is a process that helps to remove the dead, outer layer of skin and to stimulate the rejuvenation of younger looking skin.

The calendar has turned, and fall is finally here. However, some of summer’s effects are still present. With your skin’s exposure to the sun throughout the summer months, your skin naturally darkened by creating a dark brown pigment, called melanin, in order to protect itself from the sun’s damaging rays. This natural “tanning” of the skin darkens and fades in many people without any negative side effects. continue reading
