Statistics Indicate that Plastic Surgery for Men is at an All-Time High

Stem Cells and Skin Care

The more that scientists look into the depth DNA of stem cells, the more regenerative properties it seems they are able to provide.

Cosmetics companies have long been quick to jump in and tap into new scientific breakthroughs; botulinium toxin having been first used to treat spasms in facial muscles. Therefore, it is not surprising that the same businesses are seizing the opportunity to harness these cells. Continue reading

Skin Lift for the Eyes

Our eyes are probably the most precious things we have. Not only they make us see all the beauty around us, they also make us seem beautiful to everyone around us. Eyes are the first thing on our face that catches someone’s attention. People tend to judge us through our eyes, and why not? Our eyes speak for us. They can tell about our feelings, our emotions and even our age. Probably the first one to speak of our age.

As we age with time, gravity plays its game and our skin begins to droop down especially the skin around our eyes.

With age, a lot of fat starts depositing on the eyelid skin and that, too, can cause the skin to loosen and droop down. This gives a very tired look and makes you look years above your age.

A perfect face cut is like a perfect canvas. Naturally we all have face cuts which perfectly compliment our natural features. What gives us this perfect cut is our jaw line—a tight, firm, sharp jaw line indeed. Yet, as we age, the skin around our jaw line begins to sag and droop down. Even after a forehead or eyebrow lift, our age is quite identifiable by the loose saggy skin hanging down the jowls. The reason behind this sagging and loosening of skin is mainly the skin’s elasticity factor. Our skin loses its elasticity as the production of collagen slows down with age. With the lack of elasticity to hold it there, the gravitational pull makes it droop downwards. One more reason behind early loosening of jowl skin is the constant movement of the jaw line. We all need to eat and we all need to talk. Well, most of us are doing either or both at any given time. This constant movement results in loose jowl skin. Continue reading
