Our bodies sometimes lose their natural fat, collagen, and hyaluronic acid as we become older. The truth is that our genetics can only go to a certain extent. Makeup simply does not permit the curves we desire. Your appearance can be drastically transformed with non-invasive body reshaping. Your cosmetic objectives might be attained with the aid of hyaluronic acid body contouring procedures. Invasive cosmetic surgery is a terrific option if you want to improve your physical appearance instead. Here are some body-transforming options that you should know about.

What Is Body Contouring?

The term “body sculpting,” which also refers to “body contouring,” refers to a variety of surgical and medical procedures performed to change the shape of a particular area of the body. Excess skin removal surgeries may be necessary, depending on the person and their natural build. You may also have to lose the additional weight and then transform the area by re-contouring it. Body sculpting is not effective for weight loss in most cases. It helps with body sculpting instead, focusing on problem areas like excess skin after massive weight loss or problem areas where dieting hasn’t worked.

You Can Try Doing A Tummy Tuck

An operation known as a “tummy tuck” is used to trim and tone the midriff. It flattens out any persistent “belly pooch” by tightening abdominal muscles and removing extra skin. Women who have gone through pregnancy or lost a lot of weight frequently choose this procedure for their skin & maintenance. Surgery for a tummy tuck can remove loose folds of drooping skin and make the waist more feminine and slim.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a popular fat-reduction operation that can be adjusted in a number of ways to achieve the desired results. During the procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is used to suction out excess fat from the treatment area. This fat can be harvested for grafting and then used in other procedures like a Brazilian butt lift. The term “mommy makeover” refers to a combination of liposuction and other body-contouring operations. It is very popular among younger women and younger generations.

What Happens Before The Body Contouring Procedure?

A consultation with a plastic surgeon comes first. Your health history, including any conditions, allergies, or prior surgical procedures should be discussed. In addition, the doctor or your aesthetician will do the following: 

  • Analyze and quantify the areas that need changing
  • Mark the area(s) with a marker or pen
  • Take a couple of before and after pictures
  • Share your thoughts and offer advice on the available options
  • Discuss your options, risks, and concerns regarding anesthesia and pain management if you’re considering surgery
  • A consent document must be signed before any further action may be taken

You also agree that your expectations are realistic and that you understand the potential risks of the operation. Depending on the method of body sculpting you choose, the medical staff may require you to: 

  • Get blood tests or have a physical with your primary care practitioner
  • Quit smoking or taking drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen

Since everybody & every woman is different and a story in itself, it is vital for you to know your options and have realistic expectations. If you want more info & you need help with your next non-invasive body-sculpting treatment, Dr. Glow Getter will have all of your answers!

Do you ever wonder if the acne you get now as an adult is the same as the acne you experienced when you were a teenager? In fact, did you know that acne is the most typical skin issue?!

Acne forms when your skin’s oil draws in bacteria and dead skin cells. 

Acne is more likely to appear on your face, chest, and upper back since these areas produce the most oil.

There are many different kinds of acne, such as:

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Cystic acne
  • Pimples

To understand the difference and figure out how to treat each type keep on reading and get your answers down below.

Adult Acne

Modern lifestyle elements including chronic stress, changing hormones, a demanding schedule, and increasing pollution levels are to blame for the increase in adults who have acne. Another common factor that affects mature skin is smoking & drinking. 

Adult acne scars heal more slowly than teen acne scars due to a slower rate of skin cell turnover. 

Acne development in adults has been linked to hormonal shifts and persistent stress for both men and women.

Acne that is inflammatory (red, sensitive) typically appears close to the lips, chin, and jawline. Anyone can experience this type of skin concern, which is why nothing should worry you.

Teen Acne

Acne in adolescents is largely hormonal and partly hereditary. 

Face, chest, and back acne is more common in teenagers than in adults. 

During puberty, androgen levels rise (the “masculine” hormones found in both sexes), causing an increase in sebum production and, consequently, an increase in acne.

Due to increased cell turnover and stronger skin, teenagers heal faster from outbreaks than adults. 

In most cases, acne clears up once the teen years are over, as the hormonal changes that triggered breakouts in the first place have settled down. This is why most teens just have to stick through the heeling process.

How To Take Care Of Your Skin?

1. Wash Your Face

Wash your face gently once or twice a day.

Abrasive washcloths and facial cleansers should not be used since they may make acne worse.

If you decide to wear makeup, pick water-based products over oil-based ones. Also, be thorough when removing your makeup (no matter your age or skin type).

Teenagers can use over-the-counter acne treatments, but adults require more delicate solutions that are catered to their specific type.

2. Don’t Pick Your Face

Picking and squeezing acne may cause scarring, so avoid doing so. 

Due to the slower rate of skin renewal in adults, this is especially important for the treatment of adult acne. You should avoid touching your skin when out and about – you’re constantly catching bacteria on every corner.

3. Watch Out For External Factors

The severity of acne can be affected by environmental factors. 

Some people claim that exposure to sunlight helps clear up their acne. 

Acne could be a side effect of intense exercise that causes you to sweat excessively. 

Though there’s no proof linking stress and nutrition to acne, if you find that certain foods cause breakouts for you, it’s best to avoid those.

4. See a Dermatologist

If your acne does not go away after applying home remedies, do not hesitate to schedule a consultation with a skilled individual. For some, the key might be in pills and oral medication while others may want to turn to retinoids, chemical peels, etc. For the best results and customized facials check out Dr. Glow Getter in Edgewater, NJ and just know that you’re in safe hands.

Do you tend to experience dry, itchy, and inflamed skin? You are noticing dry flakes and redness? Stop worrying since this happens quite often, especially during colder and snowy days. However, do you know why it may be happening to you? If not and you want to know more about dehydrated or dried-out skin keep on reading! Here, we will list several reasons why it happens to the best of us!

Top 6 Reasons Why Your Skin Is So Dry During Winter

1. Low temperatures

If you live somewhere in the cold where it constantly rains, snows, or is super windy just know that you are a good candidate for cracked and peeling skin. In fact, harmful conditions can make visible aftermath all over. The truth is that lack of warmth and constant drop in temperatures will make your skin dry, crack and peel. Be cautious of constant drops, and be prepared.

2. Avoid harsh soaps

Frequent bathing and the use of harsh soaps or liquid soaps will make your skin a lot drier (both body and face). Your epidermal layers won’t be able to stand all of that pH imbalance, which is why you should aim for rich and moisturizing ingredients. 

PS: You should also avoid harsh scrubs and at-home peels since they can remove your protective outer layer with ease., check out our cleansers for a well desired results when it comes to cleansing your skin

3. Not applying the right cream

You can’t use your summertime go-to cream or skincare products since they can’t withstand the breeze. The truth is, they are made out of different ingredients and often used for different reasons, such as dewiness, SPF protection, etc. Your wintertime essentials should be nourishing, thick, and rich in texture, as well as fully absorbing.

4. You need a facial

Your skin is in need of frequent facials. This includes extractions, peels, chemicals peels, microdermabrasion, as well as the use of high-quality serums. Try to bring back the radiance and luminosity by packing all the right ingredients on a regular and by letting a professional take care of your needs.

5. Simply dehydrated

Do you drink the right and needed amount of water? The truth is, we all tend to switch up our H2O in the winter with hot chocolate, tea, or coffee while in reality our body and our skin are thirsty and dried out. You should continue to aim for 2 liters a day or even more, especially if you work out.

6. The use of Heater

You can’t have your heater on all the time and expect it to be good for your skin. Any form of excessive heat and constantly finding yourself next to a fireplace will make all the marks on your skin. Make sure that you add a humidifier to balance these two out.

PS: check-out our Calming Serum in case you are being exposed to the heat daily, it will minimize the damage and cool your skin to glowing results

Are you someone who struggles with dry patches, wrinkles, fine lines, or dehydration? A lot of women have some type of concern when it comes to their skin. Some have acne and others have blackheads or pimples. Where do you stand and what do you struggle with the most? Here are some common skin concerns and ways how you can treat it. 

Top 6 Most Common Skin Concerns 

1. Dryness 

Battling dryness and having dry patches usually happen to women as they age. This is a process that you can’t stop or prevent but you can slow it down with the right approach. We produce 1% less collagen each year as we age. This means that you need to take your skincare seriously as time goes on and as you get older. Aim for regular facials, loads of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Infuse your skin with high-quality creams and serums as well. learn more about why your skin is dry, top reasons, and solutions here

2. Fine lines 

Fine lines will happen first and before you start to develop deep or noticeable wrinkles. They are the first sign of slow and steady aging that usually happens around our smile lines. In this case, microdermabrasion or vampire facials can do their magic and can transform your skin. You could also incorporate some face rollers to boost your glow. Simply massage your face frequently by doing up & down movements to get firmer skin. Learn more here

3. Wrinkles 

Wrinkles are another part of the aging process. Women above the age of 30 will develop them, this is unavoidable, and you will experience more & deeper lines as you age. Most commonly wrinkles will appear over our forehead, around smile lines, as well as beneath our eyes. You will develop crow’s feet and you will have tighter skin around your eyes that can be tricky to handle. This is why and where a HIFU facial can come in handy for your long-term maintenance and problem-solving.

4. Blackheads 

Blackheads are not scary or harmful but they can be quite annoying to remove. They also look ugly or unappealing, and everyone can have them. Usually, they are the most visible and prominent over our nose, and sometimes the chin & forehead (the T-zone can be tricky). Sometimes covering them with foundation can be tricky too. If you’re struggling with blackheads you should consider doing a deep cleansing facial. You will appreciate extractions as well, and a hydrating mask on top.

5. Acne 

Acne is quite common for women, especially during their teenage years. If you’re struggling with some pimples, whiteheads, or acne, you should consider getting a deep cleanse and going for a facial that is mainly focused on extractions, as well as getting all the debris out of your pores. A skincare expert will use clay, charcoal, as well as retinol to take care of your skin and breakouts. Often times tea tree oil is quite good in combating this issue and is ideal for your at-home use.

6. Hyperpigmentation

Lastly, there is a lot of hyperpigmentation going on in the summertime, especially for dark-skinned women. You could also experience some freckles in this case or darker patches. If this does sound like your skin you should go for chemical peels or retinoids. Your esthetician will customize the facial per your skin type, age, concern, as well as damaged area. You will be left with a glowy, radiant, hydrated, as well as even complexion.
