Now available at Foreveryoung , Inc. “New Apeel” Diamond Microdermabrasion.


What is Aesthetic Exfoliation?


Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Not only is the face a likely victim of these changes, but the neck, chest, cleavage, arms and hands may be affected as well. MicroExfoliation can reduce the effects of aging on our skin.

MicroExfoliation is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it more supple and vibrant. MicroExfoliation also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. MicroExfoliation treatments are administered by trained aestheticians.

A wonderful alternative to chemical peels, the NewApeel® MicroExfoliation treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no down time after treatment. Leading plastic surgeons and dermatologist regard the NewApeel® system as being more gentle and affective than other exfoliating systems, even at higher settings. The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on skin type and condition. Results are gradual but highly effective. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their first treatment.

Laser Nail Fungus Treatment; Yes It Is Here...

Cooltouch Coolbreeze for Treatment of Nail Fungus

Initially I was very skeptical when I heard about toenail fungus treatment with lasers. I have been practicing medicine now since 1994 and have been telling patients for the past 16 years that toenail fungus can only be treated with oral medications such as lamisil and Sporonox. These medications are generally only about 50 percent effective and involve taking medications that can rarely damage the liver.

All this has now changed: Cooltouch lasers (1320 nm long wavelength) can now be safely used to eliminate deep seated nail fungus infections. I tried this on a few friends and patients with amazing results. Two to three treatments over 3 months and you can see new nail growing. Toe nails do take 6 to 9 months to fully grow out.

Here is a video posted by a podiatrist in Florida that shows how simple the procedure actually is:


Please go to my menu of service tab on top of the page and look up Cooltouch laser under the procedures tab and read about it.

Cost: $500/Treatment

I will update you in a few months and post before and after photos.

Hope to see you soon.

There are millions of cosmetics brands out there, and when you make a stop over at your local convenient store or cosmetics retailer, you may be hard-pressed to navigate which ones are of good quality, won't damage your skin, and also don't participate in any sort of cruel animal testing. The following are ten brands that in some way meet these criteria, with the added bonus of being very affordable. These brands prove that you don't have to break the bank for bringing out the beauty in you.

According to one reviewer, Maybelline Mineral Powder Foundation "takes the cake in terms of value.

Looking More Youthful


One of the most effective ways to look youthful and younger is to pay plenty of attention to your eyes.

Babies and young children have relatively large eyes; this is a sign of youth and beauty. As we age the upper eyelid skin starts to drape over the lid and droops, eyelashes become less dense and short, excess fat and skin accumulates under the eyes, and the eye complex appears smaller. Genetics and continued sun exposure are the major contributing factors.

Here are a few suggestions to rejuvenate your eyes:

1.       Latisse is a great product that thickens lashes- It Simply Works.

2.       Chemical peels and Fraxel lasers can tighten the skin around the eyes

3.       Procedures such as Thermage and Endoscopic Brow lift can raise the eyebrows and open up the eye complex.

4.       Botox and Dysport place between the eyebrow and on the lateral aspect of the eyes can elevate eyebrows without making you look “surprised”.

5.       Fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and Radiesse can fill in the hollowness under the yes and lift the eye complex by adding to the cheekbones.

6.       Cooltouch lasers build up collagen without the downtime of surgery- 4 to 6 treatments over 4 months are needed to get long lasting results.

One size does not fill all; allow us to design a program that works for you.
