Sleeping beauty: 5 dermatologist recommendations for nighttime body care
(BPT) – Did you know your body repairs itself while you sleep? This is just as true for your body’s skin as it is for your brain and your muscles. How much quality sleep you get each night, and how you prepare yourself for sleep, can make a difference in the look and feel of your body’s skin. “While many people have developed healthy routines to care for the skin on their face, it’s just as important to develop a nighttime body care routine too,” says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Farhang. “And it doesn’t have to be complicated. There are simple steps you can follow that will have you covered, from head to toe.” Farhang offers tips on how you can help your skin be at its best — while you’re getting your beauty sleep. 1.

There are Many Possible Reasons for Hair Loss
It can affect your entire body or just your scalp and it is possible it is a temporary situation versus permanent. Usually, humans shed between 50 and 100 single hairs per day. It is part of a natural balance with some hairs falling out while others are growing in. There is a cycle to hair growth, Growing Phase, Transition Phase and Resting Phase. When the balance or cycle is interrupted; hair falling out with less hair growing in — hair loss happens. Alopecia hair loss is different than hair shedding. The term baldness or balding refers to the hair loss on your scalp. You could have gradual thinning, patchy spots, or more of a sudden change. Some hair loss is caused by medical conditions, medication or medical treatment such as chemotherapy. Hormones can affect your hair i.e., childbirth or menopause. Diet and hairstyle weigh in as does stress. Age is also a big factor as is heredity. You could experience different types of hair loss, gradual thinning on top of head, Circular or patchy bald spots, or Sudden loosening of hair. Men tend to lose hair at the top of the head, women tend to have a wider part line […]
Look Like a Beauty Without the Sleep – How to Fake a Good Night’s Rest
As we spring ahead again and adjust our internal clocks for Daylight Savings, we must be prepared for those mornings when sleep doesn’t come naturally – a condition known as “Daylight Savings Hangover.” The good news is that there is a way to look refreshed and awake – even if your sleep schedule is in the dumps. Tip 1: Shut it down – electronics that is. Before going to sleep, shut down all electronics – that means TV, computer and, yes, your blackberry. These all are stimulants for the brain, and if you’re answering emails in bed at 10 p.m., you’re going to have a difficult time getting to sleep. Hit the power switch at least an hour before bedtime. Tip 2: Get up … NOW! Once the alarm goes off, get out of bed immediately. Snoozing is not sleep; it’s just prolonging the inevitable. Tip 3: So now that you’re up – do something. Try a morning workout to get motivated and feel energized for the day. Take a quick run or hit an early morning spin class. Be sure to challenge yourself first thing and then see how much easier your morning commute feels. Tip 4: Hydrate. Great-looking skin isn’t just about what you […]

EmSculpt NEO Dr. Daniel Savarino
The world of non-surgical body contouring and body shaping is rapidly changing and progressing. New technologies and innovations are continually increasing the amount of fat that can be lost and skin tightening that can be done without surgery and with little downtime. One device stands out as a breakthrough, the newly released EmSculpt NEO by BTL Aesthetics. The EmSculpt NEO combines two technologies into one device that until now could never be combined, radiofrequency (RF) and Hi-Fem. The reason is that RF requires metal and Hi-Fem uses electromagnetic waves, like a magnet. The team at BTL Aesthetics has developed a patented technology that now combines both radiofrequency and electromagnetic wave technologies for a treatment that is far superior and provides a much-enhanced treatment pathway for those struggling to lose stubborn body fat. EmSculpt NEO will set the Goldstar standard when it comes to treatments related to body contouring and body shaping even beyond cool sculpt technology! How It Works: Radiofrequency technology or RF works by increasing the temperature of the tissue being treated. This happens by putting the cells in an excited state causing them to oscillate which in turn causes friction between the cells, producing heat. When the tissue […]
Finding confidence in quarantine: Survey shows how COVID-19 influences makeup usage
(BPT) – As being in quarantine and weathering the COVID-19 pandemic continues to put a damper on things, American women are turning to their makeup routines to feel a sense of control and comfort, according to new research. In September, marketing firm OnePoll asked 2,000 American women about how they’re staying positive and confident as their time in quarantine and social distancing drags on. According to the findings, 51% said wearing makeup and changing up their looks turned out to be a small way to help them escape the stress of current affairs. If you’re feeling the need to switch things up, you’re not alone. Read on to discover more survey findings to inspire ideas to help you feel your best. Going for natural beauty: Since the onset of the pandemic, we’ve seen a palpable shift in mood to a more low-key, understated aesthetic. After all, when video meetings and intimate (but open-air) gatherings continue to define our interactions, we may be less focused on going for glam and more on dressing for warmth and casual comfort. For that reason, respondents identified a rise in more natural makeup looks as a key trend of 2021. Leveraging makeup with benefits: A […]

Most people have heard of Ozone, but only in how it relates to the Earth’s atmosphere in which it absorbs the ultraviolet light, is considered a pollutant, and is thin with holes in it. Ozone has actually been used therapeutically for 150 years. It is a gas, which is colorless, and is a form of oxygen. Ozone Therapy is widely used in other countries including Germany, Russia, and Cuba. There are professional medical Ozonotherapy societies in over ten countries worldwide. Ozone has been studied globally for its ability to disinfect and treat disease by inactivating bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa, stimulation of oxygen metabolism, and activation of the immune system. Also referred to as Ozonotherapy, it is used in alternative medicine. There are claims that it will increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. Diseases treated are infected wounds, circulatory disorders, geriatric conditions, macular degeneration, viral diseases, rheumatism/arthritis, cancer, SARS, and AIDS. Ozone therapy leaves bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa essentially inactive. While its natural form is a gas, it should not be inhaled as it irritates the airways. It is administered directly to the tissue in a protective covering, intravenously, or […]
Give Me a Head with Hair…
Long beautiful hair, Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen” (from the 1967 Musical Hair). Having a full head of wonderful, luxurious, beautiful hair is one of the first things a person notices when they see you. Hair has always had psychological and sociological importance throughout the ages. For many, it is their crowning glory. The thought of thinning hair has brought about some wild and crazy hair growth remedies throughout the ages. Ancient Egyptians went so far as to include a mixture of fats from a hippopotamus, crocodile, tomcat, snake and ibex or porcupine hair boiled in water and applied to the scalp for four days. In 1936, the introduction of the Xervac, a machine that purportedly used suction to spur hair growth. In 19th-century England, people affected with thinning hair would rub “cold India tea” and pieces of lemon into their scalps. Let’s be honest, hair loss effects self-image and self-confidence for both men and women. Once you have hair, you do not want to say farewell to it. The newest technique in hair growth rejuvenation are the use of Exosomes. These are micro-vesicles, about 1/1000th the size of a normal cell and are involved in normal intercellular communication. Also […]

A breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty, is often covered by health insurance. It can be a cosmetic procedure if someone simply would like smaller breasts. However, because there is typically pain, a breast reduction can be considered a medially necessary surgery. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that removes excess fat, tissue, and skin to create a breast size more proportionate with a women’s body size. A breast reduction is sought after by women who have disproportionally large breasts. This may cause them physical pain and emotional distress. “Many of my patients have been helped by breast reduction. For years, these women have struggled with neck and back pain, indentations on their shoulders from bras, and skin irritations. Additionally, large breasts can cause women to feel self conscious, limit their physical activity, and make choosing clothing difficult. By reducing the size of their breasts, we can relieve pain and lift spirits,” said Dr. Said A Samra, founder of Samra Plastic Surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a breast reduction is about $5500 plus anesthesia and surgical facility costs. These costs my be covered by health insurance providers. The individual will need to get […]
Do you love to be in shape, look fit, and have a body to be proud of?
Then you have missed your routine of going to the gym and so does your body. While much of the world is slowly reopening after being under quarantine for months, you still have this tremendous hesitation about going to your gym, sharing equipment, and maybe sharing air with too many. There is a great alternative that will put you back into pre-lockdown shape, ready for the beach, and keep you there without exposure to potential illness. Come into Lotus Health & Aesthetics for our Medical Fitness Center treatments or Medical Gym. Undo the quarantine damage with EMSCULPT, a non-invasive technology that induces powerful muscle contractions also known as HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetics). These contractions cannot be achieved with voluntary muscle action. Emsculpt causes 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes! This also causes the fat cells to break down their contents and release them as fatty acids which are metabolized by the body and excreted as waste. It has been cleared by the FDA for the improvement of abdominal tone and strength as well as buttocks. Recently, the same technology has begun to bring back your beautifully toned arms and legs. A handful of visits has the same effect on your […]
Telemedicine, the new normal or just for now?
Many medical professionals are offering telemedicine services during this Coronavirus pandemic. Patients can be treated from the comfort, convenience, and safety of their own homes via a phone, tablet, or computer. This patient visit can be conducted as simply as a telephone call or as sophisticated as a video call. The platforms are HIPAA complaint to protect patients. Telemed services can include initial consultations, follow-up appointments, sick visits, or potentially any type of communication for which you would normally seek the advice and guidance of a physician. These appointments are being referred to as virtual visits, video appointments, and phone consultations. If the patient requires treatment, the physician can discuss a plan based on the diagnosis and emergent nature. During this critical time, when the CDC is recommending people try to ‘flatten the curve’ by not gathering in places and standing 6 feet apart from one another, physicians had to find an alternative way to communicate to replace the traditional in-person visit. This was further complicated by not limiting the amount of patients a doctor can see in a day based on having to stagger patient visits. This service that has been around for decades and is commonly used in […]
THE ULTIMATE THANK YOU By Lotus Health Aesthetics
Apparently, it is part of human nature to develop appreciation for things we always took for granted as well as new and different people, places, and things after going through a traumatic experience. For many of us, living the last few months with the fear of illness, death, financial ruin, loss of a loved one, and so many other emotions that have plagued us with this plague, has opened our eyes to the importance certain people have played in your life. No one came out of this unchanged. Saying thank you cannot communicate the deep sentiment many of us have. The words are used so often, that no matter how deeply we feel them, we want to express more. For the Moms and Dads out there, I bet you never had such great appreciation for your children’s teachers after home schooling them since Mid-March. Their infinite patience and careful mentoring of your child’s future has not gone unnoticed after the world became The Land of Covid. If you or a loved one sought medical treatment recently and realized that all your loved one had was the hospital staff to rely on, since no visitors were allowed, your gratitude runs far […]
Renewing Life After Quarantine
Life is pretty rough right now, you have the threat of physical illness, financial worries, shortages of necessities, children home 24/7 driving you nuts, weak and elderly loved ones you can’t get to and a sense of isolation. When will this all go away? It is so important, now more than ever, to let our loved ones know you love and support them and that they are on our minds. Social isolation is depressing and living in quarantine puts walls between us and the ones we want to hold dear. Spring is here, it should be all about renewal after a long, colorless winter. What can we do to renew the spirit? You can’t visit because of Social Distancing, you can’t travel. We are quarantined, so our favorite pampering places are closed. Your hair looks like the ends were chewed, your nails look like you have been digging in cement, your uni-brow has taken over, you are pale, pasty, puffy. All that sinful stress eating has found a home, just where you didn’t want it. The stress and strain you have been living under is written permanently on your face with deep worry lines. You dream about a relaxing massage […]
Confused about Body Contouring Choices?
You keep seeing and hearing the words Body Sculpting but what exactly does that mean? Essentially it is a category of noninvasive cosmetic treatments or fat-reduction procedures which can be done in-office with minimal downtime. The results are wonderful and beauty seekers overwhelming prefer this over surgical solutions. It is terrific to have a plethora of choices, although not all treatments are made equal and not all procedures are right for every issue and person. It is best to educate yourself for which one is best for your body, health, and wallet. Body contouring is not a replacement for healthy eating and smart weight loss. Losing weight reduces the size of your fat cells, it does not remove them. That being said, these procedures are a wonder at removing unwanted trouble spots that weight loss and exercise haven’t fixed. We all have those hated spots…muffin tops, turkey neck, jelly belly. The best candidates would be: Adults whose weight loss has stabilized Healthy individuals without medical conditions Nonsmokers Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals Individuals that are committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and fitness CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure. It is a […]
Why are so many women getting boob jobs?
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, 313,735 breast augmentations were performed nationally in 2018. Breast augmentation has been the top cosmetic surgical procedure since 2006 and was up 4% versus 2017. Silicone implants were used in 88%, and saline implants in 12%, of all breast augmentations in 2018. Liposuction followed (258,558) and rhinoplasty was the 3rd (213,780) most popular cosmetic surgery in 2018. Why are so many women getting boob jobs? The reasons are very personal and based on the individual’s body, history, and image. In general, the most popular goals are to increase the size, change the shape, or improve symmetry of the breasts. Dr. Said Samra, board-certified plastic surgeon at Samra Plastic Surgery who has consulted with thousands of women on the subject, says, “Before pregnancy, women interested in the procedure are typically looking to increase size or address asymmetry. Post pregnancy, women are usually looking to restore shape and replace volume loss. Breast implants can also be used to form a more hourglass figure by creating balance between the breasts and hips. One thing these women all have in common is they want to feel more confident about the way they look in and […]
Could EMSCULPT be your dream come true?
So, you love a toned body but hate the gym? You are probably in the majority. Several years ago, while sweating on a treadmill at my least favorite place, I overheard two ladies planning out the perfect scenario for a beautiful body. One suggested that somebody needs to find a way to lay back and relax and let a machine do all the hard work for you. BINGO…or rather EMSCUPLT EMSCULPT is the first non-surgical, non-invasive treatment of its kind to both simultaneously build muscle, burn fat, and shape your body. To address fat and skin, it uses high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate muscle contractions. Muscle contractions, like crunches and squats, helps build muscle mass and tone. During the EMSCULPT procedure, muscles are forced to have supramaximal muscle contractions. These intense contractions are not achievable through voluntary contractions you can do on your own. The technology induces 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions in 30 minutes. In comparison, when you do a crunch or a squat, you are only activating about 50% of that muscle group every three to five seconds. EMSCULPT is activating 100% of the muscle 20,000 times in a 30-minute period. The muscle tissue is forced […]
