What is Hyaluronic Acid and Why It’s Great For Your Skin

Leave a Comment »

You probably have seen hyaluronic acid in one of your skin care products but you may have wondered….what exactly is it? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body.  It is a lubricating fluid that has a high capacity for holding water…up to 1000 times its weight!  It acts almost like a sponge, holding water in the skin, giving it a plump and youthful appearance.  Unfortunately, as we age, our body’s production of hyaluronic acid slows down.  Loss of hyaluronic acid in our skin leads to loss of volume and firmness. How can you increase hyaluronic acid in your body? Drinking lots of water to stay hydrated and eating certain foods can help your body to replenish or maintain its levels of…

Tummy Tuck: A Practice in Patience

Leave a Comment »

When you want to correct muscle separation and laxity that occurs as a result of weight and pregnancy, it is natural to want results sooner rather than later. It is enough of practice in patience to have to implement a healthy diet and regular exercise, to then realize that these habits aren’t going to give you the exact curves you’d like to see on your body. It is this frustration that leads many people to visit their plastic surgeon to talk about abdominoplasty. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, exceeds the capabilities of nonsurgical skin tightening treatments for excessive abdominal laxity. It also outdoes what is possible with liposuction alone. Liposuction can reduce the layer of subcutaneous fat that lies beneath the skin, but it cannot correct…

Vampires Don’t Come out Only at Night

Leave a Comment »

Historically, vampires have gotten a bit of a bad rap. We may love references to these nocturnal oddities in movies and television, but not so much in real life. In our Scottsdale office, vampires coming out during the day can be a good thing, because our Vampires have a positive effect on your skin! Let’s Talk Vampire Facial™ and Vampire Facelift™ These two techniques are still in their upward swing regarding popularity. The Vampire Facial was first made notable by Kim Kardashian after the reality star posted images of herself midway through her skin rejuvenating treatment, looking a bit red in the face, to be honest. The appearance of an (albeit, beautiful) blood-splattered face was at first a bit disturbing. However, discerning men and women…

The Elusive G-Spot: Here’s What You Need to Know

Leave a Comment »
Your G-Spot

The G-spot has been a hot topic of discussion for many, many years; and yet, this “hidden gem” within a woman’s vagina remains somewhat of a mystery, even to those in the field of sexual health. Is there a G-spot at all? Do all women have it? And, perhaps the most pressing question, “how do we find it?” all need to be answered – or so it seems. To perceive the G-spot as an actual spot, or point, within the vagina may be incorrect. This is a highly-erogenous area that may expand as a woman becomes aroused. Another concept that may be incorrect, and extremely frustrating for some women, is that the G-spot is an end-all-be-all to breathtaking orgasms. The truth of the matter is,…

Is Your Body Getting Enough Magnesium?

Leave a Comment »
is your body getting enough magnesium

You most likely will see Magnesium listed on the back of your daily multivitamin supplement.  The question though is if your body is getting the amount it needs. Magnesium is an essential macro-mineral that plays a very important role in many of our body’s functions.  Unlike trace minerals, macro-minerals are needed in large amounts.  Magnesium plays a part in hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body.  It maintains normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, regulates the heart’s function, and supports the production of energy. Since magnesium aids in so many crucial functions of the body, it is very important that we regularly replenish our levels to prevent symptoms that can occur from a magnesium deficiency….and most likely, just taking your daily…
