1. If your recent math problems have involved counting lines on your face.... then have them removed using Dr. Yagoda's expert facial rejuvenation! Done in the office, the facial rejuvenation process involves both filler and neurotoxins to help remove lines due to age and sun exposure. The filler erases nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and adds volume to the cheekbones, subtly lifting the skin from underneath. The neurotoxins (Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) raise the brow, smooth forehead wrinkles, and erase crow's feet. With this procedure, you will definitely be subtracting age!
2. Here is a science question: Increased exposure to sun, sand, and other harsh environmental conditions causes... sun spots! These are not the sunspots in space (which are also caused by extreme heat!) but rather the dark areas of skin that develop after prolonged exposure to direct UV rays. They increase with age and are a perfect example of why sunscreen is always a necessity! To remove sunspots, IPL -- or intense pulsed laser therapy -- is very effective. IPL helps lighten the skin and is completely non-invasive.
3. Looking back to history isn't only important when you are in school! Dr. Yagoda combines traditional and homeopathic treatments with more conventional modern medicine. Her integrative approach to beauty includes alternative therapies from Eastern cultures. These indigenous practices, herbal and plant based remedies, and homeopathic cures are from ancient times and were used by million of people over hundreds of centuries. This outlook ensures you will receive the most natural results possible with a lowered chance of side effects.
4. The French term décolleté describes a part of a woman's body that is often ignored -- even though it shouldn't be! Defined as the upper part of a woman's torso, the décolleté area is also prone to sun damage from low-hanging tops and bathing suits. If you find yourself hiding your neck more than showing it off, there are options to rejuvenate the area as well as prevent more damage. Using neck exercises, sun protection, and treatments such as peels and IPL, your neck will once again be a source of pride!
Even if you don't find yourself heading back to the classroom this year -- or having to pick a favorite subject -- September is still the perfect month to shake off the damage of summer and prepare for the joyous (but cold!) days of fall and winter. And, if you do have children heading off to school, we hope their fresh start inspires you to treat yourself to one, too!
