Face & Hair
Your Face & Hair Are Ever Changing Because Beauty Evolves Over Time.
As we grow from child to adult, our bone structure changes. Our face evolves. And so does our taste. What we once found beautiful and motivating becomes less so. Fashion changes. Styles change. And we find new ideas and people who inspire us to become better.
As we move through life, we see pictures of ourselves and wonder at the changes. How does the time move so quickly??
But we can be beautiful at any age. We've learned so much about aging that now how you age is up to you!
Fortunately, there are many ways to make sure you like the face you "deserve at 50." There's sunscreen and good skincare. There are skin treatments like Botox, fillers, and micro-needling. There are facelifts and hair restoration. (We're learning more about regrowing hair every day!) And if none of those are your cup of tea, there's exercise, eating right, beauty sleep, and possibly collagen supplements.
I guess what I'm trying to say is this: The world is your oyster! You can meticulously maintain your natural beauty - no matter what your age. OR you can enhance it. But therein lies the beauty (no pun intended!)! The choice is yours. And truly, isn't celebrating your beauty and feeling that inner, quiet confidence what it's all about?
Make the best choice for you! And be the very best you!

Our skin has a bottom layer made up of fat. There’s even a special name for it: the subcutaneous fat layer. It pads your muscles and bones and protects them from bumps and falls.
As we age, our faces naturally lose this fat. Lost fat means there’s less fat between your muscles and the top layers of your skin. As a result, your facial muscles are closer to the skin’s surface than they were when you were young. Smile lines and crow’s feet become more noticeable. This whole situation is only made worse by aging skin. Sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle choices (like smoking) cause skin to stretch making the fat loss look worse.Read More
You’ve heard it before. Taking care of your skin (using retinol, vitamins C and E, and sunscreen) will keep your skin wrinkle free longer. But did you know? Botox can keep your wrinkles from deepening too!Read More
There are so so many kinds of skin rejuvenation. The choices can feel overwhelming. How do you decide what to work on first?
First, I think it’s important to do an honest self-assessment. What do you consider your best feature? Think about what other people say. Do they tell you that you have beautiful eyes?Read More
We looked at many different methods of skin rejuvenation before choosing our micro-needling pen. The science behind it and results achieved make it, quite simply, better.
Most skin rejuvenation options work by causing mild injury to the skin. The body immediately starts to repair the injury by replacing the injured skin with new skin.Read More
Our lips are a critical part of who we are. They allow us to eat and drink, speak, smile and frown. They’re considered an erogenous zone. Full lips can make women (and men!) more attractive – which is why lip fillers are so incredibly popular right now. Kylie Jenner is living proof!
And when we talk to people, we focus on their face – especially the area from their eyebrows to their LIPS.Read More
I started to add cosmetic micro-needling to our services menu, when it occurred to me – most people don’t know what cosmetic needling is. Most of you probably know what micro-needling is, but do you know the benefits of cosmetic vs medical micro-needling? All of the jargon gets confusing and what you really need to know is how each benefits YOU. I hope this post helps!Read More
My daughter is missing 3 permanent teeth – a condition I’m told that’s inherited, probably from me. I’d looked and looked and looked (no exaggeration) for good answers and talked to many orthodontists. Some wanted to pull more teeth – which didn’t make any sense to me. If your kid is missing teeth, why pull more??
I stumbled across orthotropics on the internet. It sounded good, but I needed honest reviews from people who’d been there. I was really hoping to find a parent’s thoughts on the process and outcome. Following is the best I found.Read More
Braces affect bone structure, health and beauty. I discovered this the hard way. My daughter was 7 when her dentist said that she was missing 3 adult permanent teeth. Two were on the bottom jaw, one on the left side and one on the right. One was missing on the top jaw on the right side.
As it turns out, she inherited her missing teeth from me. I didn’t have wisdom teeth – and in high school thought I’d hit the jackpot (especially when watching my classmates in horrible pain from having their wisdom teeth extracted).Read More
