Lately and fortunately, the overfilled, no-shape sausage lips are something that we’re finally seeing the pendulum swing away from. (Though I did see that one nurse practitioner in New York who was trying to trademark “Blow Up Doll Lips” like that was a good thing.) Don’t get me wrong – patients still want them full, but they want good contour at the same time. Lip Fillers: The (honest) answers to all of your questions One… read more

Plus, the skin around our eyes is constantly in motion; when we smile, when we laugh, when we squint. This constant movement makes this area destined for fine lines. But enough about the causes; let’s move on… read more

Fad or Forreal Skincare

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology Billions of dollars are spent every year by companies marketing their latest and greatest skin care products. Just about every week, we hear of a new “groundbreaking” product that’s pretty much “guaranteed” to get rid of wrinkles, cure our blemishes, and make our skin look younger and healthier.  We see these new promising skincare products, and we take note that some of our favorite influencers are even claiming these products are the real deal.
