|Beauty Break Newsletter|
Get ready to usher in the summer with the upcoming solstice! Longer days and warmer weather generally mean more outdoor activities and a healthier lifestyle for most of us. As we wear less and eat less, we focus more on our overall health and beauty!
In the recent past issues, Dr. Yagoda addressed (in succession) each of our own natural beauty accessories - our skin, hair and nails! In this issue, she circles back to the topic of integrative beauty as she offers a plastic surgeon's perspective on Dysport - the newly FDA-approved Botox alternative! When exercise, diet and a good night's sleep are no longer enough, here's an option that may be just what the doctor prescribes!
Also in this issue, check out our fabulous interview with Eva Longoria's personal stylist, Robert Verdi. He dishes on the hottest 2009 Summer trends and explains why he believes that fashion and style play an integral role in a woman's overall beauty.

A Plastic Surgeon's Perspective:
Dysport - the newly FDA-Approved Botox Alternative
DR. MICHELLE YAGODA,
NYC FACIAL PLASTIC SURGEON, AND CO-FOUNDER OF BEAUTYSCOOP
External beauty is certainly a reflection of internal health and wellness, but a healthy diet, regular exercise and a good night's sleep may often play second fiddle to genetics. Embedded in your very DNA, no matter how hard you might try to fight it, is the code that predicts your face's future! When exercise, diet and restful sleep is no longer enough, consider adding Dysport, the newly FDA approved Botox alternative, to your comprehensive anti-aging regimen!
Furrows in the brow are simply the result of repetitive facial muscle movements and may be completely unrelated to the perceived signs of exhaustion, anger, stress and worry. Dysport, can refresh your appearance by diminishing these brow lines and the lines around the eyes that are commonly known as Crows' feet. Here's what you need to know about Dysport:
- Dysport (abobotulinumtoxin A) is a neuromuscular blocking agent that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe lines in the brow in people under the age of 65 for up to four months.
- It is not to be used in pregnant women, nursing mothers, children or the geriatric population.
- It should not be administered to people with allergy to cow's milk protein.
- Injections should not be done more than every three months.
- Since the dosage is not interchangeable with that of Botox ~ use caution with injections!
- Adverse reactions occur in less than 2% of people and include headache, eyelid swelling and upper eyelid drooping.
- Even more rarely, Dysport can cause double vision and/or blurred vision.
Dr. Yagoda has no commercial affiliation with Dysport or Botox but welcomes Dysport as a Botox competitor and expects that the competition will lead to more economical pricing and greater accessibility.
At the Crossroads of Style and Beauty: Tips from Celebrity Stylist, Robert Verdi
1. What roles do fashion and style play in a woman's overall beauty?
Style is a tool that when used correctly can enhance a woman's overall
beauty. Fashion is a weapon that women use to enhance aspects of
their beauty that they like, and conceal aspects of their beauty that
they don't like.2. If you could recommend one single "must have" item for Summer 2009, what would it be and why?
A big straw hat, (think Audrey Hepburn)... sun protection is
really important in maintaining healthy skin and there is something
mysteriously stylish and sexy about a woman who is brave enough to make
such an impactful fashion statement. 3. How important are accessories?
4. BeautyScoop is called an edible beauty accessory ~ Do you believe it is one? If so, why?
Accessories are the elements of fashion that define a woman's
unique style. Every woman has a little black dress, but the individual
touch that defines her style becomes the difference between the red
patent clutch and the black tote bag or the choice of the
chandelier earring verses the pearl stud. The accessory is the choice
that ultimately celebrates a woman's individuality.
Yes! Your hair and skin are your important beauty "accessories". The scientific facts prove that BeautyScoop adds luster to your hair and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles in your skin.
