It's Fun-in-the-Sun Season! Stay Protected!

What will happen if you don't wear sunscreen?If you are a sun worshipper who loves to have a tan you might not like what I am going to say in the next paragraph.I remember a song from the 70’s with lyrics that said “You’ve got to be cruel to be kind, in the right measure.” I’ve found this to be true so I’ve got to tell you this...
THE #1 CAUSE OF PREMATURE AGING OF THE SKIN ISSUN EXPOSURE!
Excessive sun exposure literally destroys collagen and DNA. I have sat in a consultation room with women (and men) and seen the long-term consequences on the faces and bodies of sun worshippers. I have seen 30 year-olds who look 40 and I have met people who are 50 with beautiful healthy skin who could pass for 40. I have also met many 50-year-old women who do not look a day under 60, and sometimes 70, because they have spent their life maintaining a tan. It is my responsibility to tell them that there is only so much laser treatments can do, and they do not work well on skin that has been abused …

How to get rid of chest fat?

How to get rid of Manboobs ...or are they Moobs? We all carry fat differently. Men tend to carry it around their waste even while the rest of their physiques remain quite lean. Some men also carry fat over their pectoral muscles. A lot of men, in fact! It is so common that some dictionary officially recognizes the terms manboobs and moobs. Fortunately, it is no longer something they have to live with.

If you’ve read my previous articles about CoolSculpting, you already know that CoolSculpting is clinically proven to freeze away fat. CoolSculpting works well, achieving results that are comparable to liposuction, but without the risks, discomfort or downtime of surgery. It works fantastic on chest fat!

During a treatment, a thin protective pad saturated with coupling gel is placed on the treatment area. This protects the skin from frostbite. The appropriate applicator is applied and then you simply relax comfortably while the fat freezes. Research that was done at Harvard Medical School d…

A solution for Nail Fungus!

Can you pass the Nail Fungus Test? Nail fungus loves to grow in dark, moist places, like our shoes for example! Swimmers, Hockey Players, Runners and other athletes are especially susceptible. Anyone can get it, or should I say catch it? It’s alive and it’s contagious. How can you catch Nail Fungus? Nail fungus can easily be spread during the simple process of enjoying a manicure or pedicure, if the previous client was infected. It can also be spread at the pool, the gym or by wearing the shoes of a person who has it. The technical name is Onychomycosis, which is the medical term for a nail infection caused by a fungus. There are many different species of fungus that can cause Onychomycosis. Once an infection develops, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to eliminate. Nails infected with fungus tend to grow slowly as the infection becomes embedded within the nail bed.  If you notice any of the following changes in your nails you may have nail fungus: Yellow or brown discolourationWhi…

Skincare

3 ways to whip your skin into shape! Walk, Jog or Sprint!Why medical-grade skincare is superior to what can be purchased over the counter can be explained in two word… Active Ingredients! At Skinpossible we carry several skincare lines to rapidly deliver results at a price and pace that you choose!
Why is medical-grade skincare superior to what can be purchased over the counter?In two words… Active Ingredients! The percentage of condition-specific ingredients such as peptides, antioxidants, exfoliants, clarifiers, growth factors and brightening agents in medical-grade products is much higher than even the highest quality spa, pharmacy or direct sales products. These are the ingredients that are going to do more for the skin then provide bland hydration. Medical-grade formulations are also free of other ingredients that do the skin no benefit and can potentially cause harm. Over the counter products may smell nice due to the perfume in the product and feel nice due to added petroleum pr…

Vaginal Health

Is it too much of a good thing?This is a sensitive topic but I’ll just come out and say it.This article is about vaginas. If you do not want to read about vaginas please quit reading now. Specifically this article is going to explain a treatment that can tighten vaginas. I think most people, either male or female, would agree that this is a good thing. I need to start by talking about vaginal anatomy.

The vaginal region is extremely complex, so to simplify it let’s imagine a hand towel, wrapped around a thick sock and squeezed by two hands. The hands represent the pelvic floor muscles that surround the vagina. The towel represents the vaginal muscles. The sock is the mucosa membrane that lines the inside of the vagina. It consists of an epithelium and an underlying layer of connective tissue known as the lamina propria. The muscles can be strengthened with Kegel exercises, but Kegels can do nothing for the sock. The integrity of the sock can be strengthened with a treatment known as In…

Ultherapy- Non-surgical skin tightening and lifting!

Need a little lift without surgery? Non-surgical skin lifting and tightening!Ultherapy is an award-winning treatment for skin tightening and the only FDA approved treatment in existence for a “lift” indication. It’s in a league of its own and this article will explain why.
The goal of all skin tightening procedures is to cause controlled injury to the skin to induce collagen denaturization and subsequent neocollagenesis. In layman’s terms what this means is that the purpose is to trigger a healing response that will produce new collagen. The greater the injury, the more dramatic and long-lasting the result will be.


COMPARE DEVICES FOR TIGHTENING AND LIFTING:
Laser:The depth of penetration with lasers is precise but very superficial. The injury that is created is limited to about 1 mm, give or take. Some devices deliver the energy in a non-invasive way for subtle results. Others are ablative and great for resurfacing of the skin. A more detailed explanation of ablative laser treatments is…
