Product of the Month
The SkinMedica HA5
There’s a lot of buzz about hyaluronic acid (HA) as a moistuizer for skin. This one contains 5 different types of HA in it for optimal longevity. What’s nice is that hyaluronic acid binds water in the skin without adding oil, so it’s great at adding extra hydration for very dry skin……put it under your regular moisturizer. And….it’s great for those with oily skin and acne because it hydrates without oil. Also, helpful when the the weather is getting hotter and more humid. Very light.

An update on Coolsculpting
We are now several years into the CS experience and while good, it’s not great. IF you have a fair amount of fat you want to remove or a lot of areas, it’s probably going to be less money and less time to do liposuction with an excellent plastic surgeon. IF you have just 1-2 small to medium areas in the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs and some areas on the back, CS will be effective but expect 1 to 4 treatments, depending on the size of the fat pocket.
