Did seeing your own face on screen during a videoconference send you into shock? You are not alone – when lockdown forced us all to talk to one another online, many of us were shocked at what we saw: lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin that make us look older than we really are. The computer screen and artificial light seem to work in tandem to make every small line and blemish really stand out during a Zoom call; caking on makeup or trying to hide your face just makes it all worse.

Damage can cause your skin to lose its natural, youthful appeal. Damage from sun exposure, free radicals, smoking cigarettes, and other irritants can cause the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases and sagging skin. Fortunately, you can take a methodical approach to restoring, nourishing, and strengthening your damaged skin.
Healthy eyelashes improve the appearance of your eyes, but getting long, luscious lashes is not always easy – mascara is messy, false eyelashes are finicky, and eyelash curlers are simply torture! Furthermore, wearing mascara or false eyelashes are not always an option. Fortunately, you can grow your own thick, gorgeous lashes that never need heavy makeup, scary curlers or falsies that can fall off in the blink of an eye.
Growing beautiful eyelashes, or protecting the eyelashes you already have, is easier than you might think.
HydraFacial is an advanced non-invasive facial treatment that improves common skin imperfections and brings out skin’s natural radiance. Unlike other facials that address only one or two issues, HydraFacial treats wrinkles, fine lines, mild acne, oily skin, enlarged or clogged pores, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation that cause signs of early aging. HydraFacial treatments leave skin firm, well hydrated, and youthful-looking. As with any treatment, HydraFacials have lots of pros and very few cons.
A good skincare routine is important to the health and aesthetic appeal of your skin, for a variety of reasons. Your skincare routine contributes to beautiful skin today and healthy-looking skin 30 years from now.
Facial waxing removes unwanted hair from your face, leaving your skin looking smoother and softer. Here are six things you should know about facial waxing.
- Unlike shaving, which cuts off hair at the surface of the skin, waxing removes the facial hair right from its root. As it grows back in, waxed hair is smooth and stubble-free. Shaved hair, by comparison, grows back stiff and stubbly.
- Waxing does not hurt the skin of most people. If you have very sensitive skin, or you are prone to breakouts, opt for professional waxing treatments.
If your stubborn frown lines or crow’s feet are getting you down, maybe it’s time to look into a quick solution. BOTOX® and Dysport® are both simple and effective treatments used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles.
After just one treatment, you will see quick results by seeing smoother, younger-looking skin in just a few days. Both BOTOX and Dysport are FDA approved for cosmetic indications that lead to very impressive results.
If you’re looking for fewer wrinkles without extensive surgery, this could be the right resolution for you.

Do you ever wish you could simply peel away fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin? Now you can – with a chemical peel.
Dead skin sitting at the surface of the skin cells can cause minor skin imperfections that make you look older and more tired. Washing your face helps remove these dead skin cells, but it leaves many skin cells behind. Chemical peels remove these skin cells and address visible skin imperfections to improve the overall appearance of the skin on your face, neck, or hands.
