What you need to know about the latest filler on the market
We’ve mentioned our excitement about the newest filler to hit the cosmetic injectable market and the amazing difference it can make in restoring volume to reverse the sagging, hollow look many experience in their 40’s and beyond. Here's a little more information about it and how it works.
This product, like other Juvederm products (ultra and ultra plus), is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that attracts and holds water. It’s an instant hit because it can fill AND lift. This product is thicker than other filler products so it lifts and replenishes the contours such as cheekbones, jawlines, chins and temples. The results can last up to 2 years, which is twice as long as most other fillers. Although serious side effects are rare, bruising and swelling are possible. For that reason, if you have a special event that you want to look your best for, remember to plan accordingly.

Products to start your own renewal!
With the warmer temperatures we’ve been enjoying, it’s only natural to start thinking about the renewal of spring.
The blossoms of flowers and trees illustrate the cycle of dry, dormant cells that turn over and allow new growth to begin. Our own skin cells also follow this cycle of turn-over, but as we age, our bodies become less efficient at this process. Luckily, there are products and treatments that can help!
Our Epionce Intense Defense Serum is a highly advanced anti-aging serum that stimulates skin rejuvenation to help reverse fine lines, wrinkles, roughness and uneven skin tone while improving firmness, elasticity and texture. It contains vitamins A-E in all forms, made from plant extracts. This product deeply penetrates through the skin barrier to reach targeted cells to strengthen, repair and fortify our skin. Using an exfoliating cleanser like the one we carry in the Neocutis line of products can help to remove dead surface cells gently and effectively, exposing the fresher skin underneath. We also offer several treatments that can help these products work more effectively and can help you put your best face forward. Depending on your skin type, our nurses can recommend a skin regime just for you—and help to start your very own spring renewal!

Spring's newest trends
If you’re like me, you’ve been itching to move into the next season’s fashions well before the official start of spring! I’m tired of the cold already and I’m dreaming of the lovely days of temperate weather (excluding the wind!) and new growth of flowers, plants and trees. In preparation, I’ve compiled a list of the newest trends and have begun searching both my closet and the stores for them! Here’s the list so that you can be prepped for spring, too:
Colors: cobalt blue, bright yellow, bright coral, gray, spring mint green, sand/camel & violet
Boxy, cropped jackets
Contrast collar blouses
Wide-leg trousers (leaner on the flare if you’re not a supermodel)
Bomber jackets in unexpected fabrics/textures
Tea length skirts (paired with bare shoulders to keep from looking too old-fashioned)
Tuxedo-striped pants with narrow legs (less traditional)
Remember to make these trends your own; you can adjust color values to fit your personal color palette and even have alterations done on the clothes you already own to update them. I love shopping thrift shops because you can find some of these items as recycled trends from the 80’s and 90’s for a fraction of the cost. Finally, don’t forget that trends are just that; they come and go from season-to-season & year-to-year, so don’t invest too much of your wardrobe budget in them—just enough to make you Flawlessly Fashionable!
