Want Line-Free, Younger Looking Lips? No Problem

Your lips are one of the most defining features of your face, outlining your smile, communicating your expressions, and puckering up to kiss your loved ones. But as we grow older, our looks change—even our lips. Over time, most people’s lips naturally tighten, flatten and become thinner, and many develop distinctive “lip lines.” But now there’s an easy solution for achieving fuller, smoother, younger-looking lips without doing anything drastic. Volbella, a new product from Allergan (the makers of Botox, Kybella and Latisse), is a dermal filler for lip lines and lips that provides a soft, subtle augmentation. At Skin Wellness, we’re proud to announce that Dr. Hartman was chosen by… read more

The Miracle of Microneedling

When Kim Kardashian made news with her “vampire facial,” the procedure actually wasn’t new. Microneedling therapy, also known as skin needling, has been around for many years but is currently enjoying a renaissance. And although microneedling devices are now available for home use, trying to undertake the procedure on your own carries significant risk. Why use microneedling? Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates collagen growth. A mechanical pen, its head filled with tiny needles, is rolled over the skin and as it vibrates, it delivers microinjections, penetrating the skin many times over the course of a few seconds. The needles are used to create a controlled skin injury.… read more

Natural Ways to Eliminate Unwanted Fat

As we age, our bodies change. And many of us end up with unwanted fat that seems almost impossible to lose. Sometimes, even with a healthy lifestyle of eating nutritiously and exercising regularly, stubborn fat still lingers.

They are often interested to hear about CoolSculpting, the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment of its kind. The technique uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat in the areas that bother you the most—and the results are lasting. We… read more
