FDA APPROVES NON - SURGICAL FACE LIFT

The Lunchtime Face Lift!!

by Stacy Reed FDA approves non-surgical, “lunchtime face lift and that is good news for those who do not want to go under the knife.” This non-invasive treatment is accomplished in one session, in one hour, at a small fraction of the cost of a traditional face lift. LOOK 10YEARSYOUNGER

If you are one of the 72 million Baby Boomers out there this procedure may just be the solution to looking 10 years younger. Regardless of how much time and energy we put into being fit, we just can’t avoid certain changes that come with aging.

One of our first and most noticeable sign of aging is that sagging skin on our face and “turkey” neck. As we age we all experience a natural loss of skin elasticity. Although we have maintained a healthy lifestyle we are all subject to this process. Unfortunately, there aren’t any exercises that can remedy this aging process. Some say that the sagging skin can add ten years to our looks.

LIFTS FACE, NECK & EYEBROWS

NON-SURGICAL LIFT “ULTHERAPY”

Fortunately there is a new facial service that can take ten to fifteen years off your looks. This new face and neck firming treats the face, neck, eyebrows, sagging jowls,wrinkles and folds. that are inevitable for the Baby Boomer generation. This unique procedure is done without incisions and will lift and tighten up the face, neck and eyebrows. This new method is safe, affordable and highly effective.

The Ultherapy device works by means of ultrasound (sound waves) to safely penetrate the skin and treat the foundation layer of muscle and tissue that holds your face up. The machine is unique (only one on the market today) in it’s ability to reach this foundation layer without creating any heat or feeling on your skin. The ultrasound will be focused and treat the same foundation layer that face lift surgery does without the risk, recovery or downtime. You can go back to work the same day.

AS SEEN ON DR. OZ, DOCTORS TV, RACHAEL RAY, THE VIEW Plus Vogue, Bazaar And Self Magazine & More

HOLLYWOOD STARS OPT FOR “ULTHERAPY” Many Hollywood stars have opted for “Ultherapy” due to its effectiveness and the natural appearance it leaves, leaves unlike surgical face lifts. Ultherapy has been seen on Dr. Oz, Doctors TV, Rachael Ray, The View and been featured in Vogue and Bazaar.

EDITOR’S LETTER Green Issue

T

he City of Fort Lauderdale has launched a campaign to incorporate green living habits. The sustainability plan’s three-word rhyming moniker, Green Your Routine, was a big influence for our annual Green Issue. You may have noticed the conveniently placed bicycle racks (like the one we photographed for the cover) throughout the city. Here at Society Scene, we know that life is already quite full so we understand that you don’t always have time to ride your bicycle to work – or that you live in Broward but work in Palm. We understand that living a green life – a lifestyle with minimal footprint on our environment – can sometimes feel like more work than it’s worth. But, Society Scene – typically devoted to coverage of charity events – sees firsthand how small efforts can easily add up to huge impacts. Not everyone can donate hundreds of dollars to a nonprofit, but if hundreds of people can attend one event thousands of dollars can be raised. I’m a firm believer that charity begins at home – and, like charity, being green and caring for our environment begins with every one of us. I can’t always ride my bicycle to work or take the train to events in Palm Beach, but I do when I can. And if everyone does this when they can, we have the potential to make a big difference for our generation and those to come. Scene & Be Seen includes coverage from recent events that supported the environment – like Guy Harvey with the Sea Turtle Oversight Protection group (STOP) and other locals including Society Scene Publisher Stacy Ostrau planting sea oats on the beach last weekend during the Tortuga Music Festival. Our resident movie buff, assistant editor Keisha Hatchett, uses the upcoming release of “Avatar” at MODS’ IMAX theater as a metaphor for what’s taking place in our own planet on page 12. The fashionable Joanie Cox-Henry shares some of the latest beauty products and companies that are not just reducing their carbon footprint but giving back to the environment in ways that consumers can feel good about. I recently moved into a bigger apartment and had more space than furniture. In creative – and sometimes questionable – circumstances I found myself scanning yard sales and bulk trash nights in the neighborhood. Surprisingly, furnishing my new nest was easier (and cheaper) than I’d imagined. Photographer Kara Starzyk captured some of my repurposed home décor on page 16. In addition to our regular calendar of nonprofit events we’ve compiled a page of upcoming green-minded events and activities to help you celebrate Earth month and Earth Day on April 22.

hen I think about the term “green,” I think of trees, recycling, the crayon color, polar bears, melting ice caps, Vice President Al Gore and “Avatar”- yes, that James Cameron film about the blue people that finally dethroned “Titanic” as the highest grossing film of all time.

Indulge me for a moment. Travel into the future, to the year 2154 on the planet Pandora, inhabited by the “Na’vi” people. Earth’s natural resources are practically nonexistent and the humans from the Resources Development Administration look to this strange world to mine unobtanium, a valuable mineral. What happens next is the exploration and exploitation of a beautiful terrene filled with colors, creatures, forests and history. The climax of the film occurs when the “Tree of Souls” is threatened and the creatures living on the planet fight back against the guns, fire and bulldozers. As a moviegoer, I felt a sense of pride and cathartic joy watching the “Na’vi” save their people and their home. It made me think of the many things that we can do here on Earth, to save the polar bears and those cute penguins that look like tiny men in tuxedos. “Avatar” wasn’t about demonizing humans or interspecies love triangles. I think this film was about preserving an amazing world that may seem frightening and pointless to outsiders, but possesses a stunning range of life forms that work together to co-exist. We can translate that to our world by working to preserve its beauty and appreciating all of the weird creatures that help this planet run every second of every day of every year. If you haven’t already seen the film, a special edition will be shown April 18 through May 18 at the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale. For more information, visit www.mods.org. I can hear the music playing, must be time to wrap it up. Now, where was I? Society Scene! Yes, this publication has always been about bringing people who strive to help others into the spotlight. We love to share the good things that are happening and help spread the word on how you, too, can make a difference. So, let’s focus on the good. And quite frankly, green is good.

Giving back to the earth can make you look as good as you feel. Here some important products and ways to make a difference in our world that will warm your heart, not the planet.

Aveda: Since 1999, Aveda salons have raised more than $32 million for environmental causes. More than $26 million has been raised for clean water projects at home and around the world. Locally, the mission carries on with Pyure Aveda Salons. The mission of Aveda’s Project Water Change Lives campaign continues. “Our main focus this year is to raise awareness first and funds second. It’s more important to us to bring awareness of the lack of drinking water that people suffer from throughout the world. Especially living in a place where our drinking water is readily available and taken for granted,” said Luca Boccia, co-owner of Pyure Aveda Salons in Coconut Creek, Wellington and Boynton Beach. “Throughout the month of April in addition to selling earth month candles, we are selling water drops for $1, $5 and $10. In all three of our locations they are also having daily bake sales where all the items are baked by our teams and made fresh daily. Our company goal is to not only raise awareness but to raise $12,000 to donate.” Names of individuals purchasing the $5 and $10 donations will be entered to win raffles of goods or services worth more than $400. Aveda’s Light The Way Candles cost $12 and 100 percent of the purchase price helps protect clean water, supporting Global Greengrants Fund water-related projects around the world. The organic ginger and ginger lily candles are available at Pyure Aveda Salon locations as well as www.aveda.com. The green living bonus: The glass is constructed from 100 percent reclaimed beverage bottles and the packaging is made from 90 percent post-consumer recycled content. Kiehl’s: Leave it to Kiehl’s to create a product in honor of earth day that is as lovely to look at as it is for your skin. This month, Kiehl’s launched the Limited Edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque series features earth-inspired designs created by socially-conscious celebrities Ashley Judd and Anthony Mackie. Made from Amazonian White Clay, this cleansing masque helps purify skin and visibly minimize pores while drawing out oil and toxins. It costs $23 per jar at Kiehl’s stores and wwww.kiehls.com. All proceeds from sales of the product will go to Recycle Across America. The green living bonus: Kiehl’s offers a rewarding recycling program for loyal customers who bring in empty Kiehl’s bottles. When 10 bottles are collected, customers can receive any travel collection product for free. Since 2009, Kiehl’s has recycled more than 1,500,000 bottles. That is an amazing cause to continue contributing to.

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics: Lush is another beauty product brand that makes Earth Day every day. The handmade soap and cosmetics company prides itself on creating eco-friendly products that give back to the planet and charitable causes. Here are three Lush products (available at Lush stores and www.lushusa.com) that will leave you and mother earth smiling: Green Fun; $6.95. This lemony, lime moldable soap really is fun to use in the shower. You can wash your hands, body and hair with it or bathe with it for bubbly relaxation. The citrusy scent is a lovely morning pickme-up. The Green Living Bonus: This product is vegan and made from a gentle base of corn flour, talc and glycerine so it’s also perfect for kids. Knot Wraps; $6.95. This “Psychedelic Summer” wrap inspired by Japanese art and designed by artist Oliver Hibert is a groovy way to gift wrap any of Lush’s products for a friend. You can also reuse it as a scarf or hair accessory. The Green Living Bonus: Each scarf is made out of a material called Greenspun, which is comprised of recycled plastic Lush bottles. Lush bottles are already crafted 100 percent from post-consumer recycled plastic. Last year, Greenspun saved 3 million bottles from the landfill by making them into fabric. Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion; $5.95-$22.95. Billed as “the cream that keeps on giving,” Charity Pot Hand and Body Lotion is an intoxicating blend of ylang ylang floral fragrance, fair trade organic cocoa butter and moisturizing almond oil. It’s also a wonderful cream for pregnant women to rub on their bellies to ease stretch marks. Lush Cosmetics then donates 100 percent of proceeds to grassroots charities dedicated to environmental conservation, animal welfare and human rights. The Green Living Bonus: Each charity pot container is crafted from 100 percent post-consumer recycled plastic and since 2007, Lush Cosmetics has donated more than $4,750,000 to more than 400 charities in 35 countries. So each tub of this cream is a major opportunity to make a major difference.

co-founders of Cadence, landscape architecture and urban design www.cadence-living.com

72 year-old grandmother from Wellington currently walking across the country from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., to bring attention to the crisis of climate change

“As landscape architects we are constantly focused on promoting intelligently designed outdoor spaces. People are attracted to and use spaces that are well designed. Thus leading to healthier living, through comfort and walkability. Access to public green space is a proven amenity that makes cities more appealing for the attraction of new businesses and new residences while retaining the younger population. We are educating people on the power of design, the importance of not ignoring the outdoors, and shifting the conversation on how physical improvements can impact a city, through our monthly open to the public exhibits during FATVillage’s ArtWalk in the Flagler Village neighborhood.”

Gage Couch, left, and Rebecca Bradley

“Waste, trash, overuse, misuse, brown desert, blooming desert, wet and cold Colorado River, dry washes, trucks, trains, and more trucks, wind farms and solar arrays. A woman fighting to save the pristine desert eco-system, a man planting acres of mesquite trees to produce nutritious mesquite flour in the middle of nowhere; a small jojoba production company fighting a big power company that wants its land. Grassroots actions taken by heroes fighting to make a difference in our world. It’s amazing what you see when you’re on a 3,000-mile walk!”

Pat Snell

director of student transportation and fleet services for Broward County Public Schools “Propane autogas is an economical, clean-burning, domestically produced fuel that is beneficial to our schools and our community. We have ordered 98 Blue Bird school buses equipped with the ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel system for the Broward County Public Schools. We expect a six-month return on investment for the additional cost of the alternative fuel buses — and then substantial savings in operational costs over the lifetime of the buses. Each bus will displace about 40,000 gallons of smog-producing diesel and emit 150,000 fewer pounds of carbon dioxide over their lifetime. They’ll be in operation for the 2014/15 school year.”

“Urban farms and community gardens. They increase access to fresh and nutritious local food, improve quality of life and social connectedness within the community, provide educational opportunities, and encourage developing with the environment, not against it. We created Flagler Village Community Garden, where you can not only lease a plot to grow your own vegetable, herbs, or flowers, but come for free educational workshops on topics of sustainability and connect with the community in a modern green space. The garden’s mission is founded on the idea of permaculture, which has three components: take care of the planet; take care of the people; and share the surplus. The garden will be an accessible example of how urban development can not only integrate with nature but also enable both people and other native species of plants and animals to flourish.”

Scott Lewis

incoming leader for Slow Food Glades to Coast (www.slowfoodgladestocoast.com) “Support the local farmers. It is important to know what we are consuming as well as becoming less dependent on mass produced foods. There have been farmers markets popping up as well as farm-to-table restaurants that I have been supporting and visiting as much as possible.”

‘Disco Soup’ event that took place in January as part of Growing Green Communities conference.

“Urban gardening demonstration center creation at I Love Yoga Studio by onsite permaculture design courses. If our homes, cities and gardens do not feed us then we end up taking resources and producing waste in other natural systems. If more people are sustainable and cities are selfsufficient there will be more landmass available for wilderness and conservation. By applying permaculture design to even small urban corners we can create abundance, diversity, stability and fertility for a resilient future. Permaculture design offers generations to come options and alternatives to confront climate change with a toolkit of positive solutions.”

permaculture program facilitator and founder of Permaculture Yogi (www.permaculture-yogi.com)

Sun Sentinel

“One important issue in South Florida is reducing food waste – we throw away tremendous amounts of food at home and at institutions like schools, grocery stores, and restaurants. Approximately 25-50 percent of the food we grow gets thrown away. This has terrible consequences beyond the obvious waste of resources that could feed hungry children and adults. For example, because almost half of climate changing greenhouse gases are produced by agriculture worldwide, perhaps one-fourth of such gases are generated producing food that is not used. Our local Slow Food Glades to Coast group is joining other Slow Food groups around the world in encouraging the public to reduce Food Waste in a variety of ways. One way to bring attention to this problem is by hosting a ‘Disco Soup’ event, where volunteers take food that might be thrown away due to imperfections in appearance (not taste) and prepare it for a delicious soup while dancing to a disco beat!”

Q:

Is it possible that I can have dentures that I can eat and be comfortable in?

A:

When implants are not an option whether due to poor health, poor bone or finances, complete or partial dentures may be the only option. Fortunately, for those patients, a Prosthodontist can help! I am expertly trained in both the clinical and laboratory phases of denture fabrication allowing me to hand craft the most aesthetic, functional and comfortable denture prosthetics possible with all the phases, including lab procedures, done in my office.

2 Get dirty.

By Meredith Clements

Choo choo choose the greener route.

I’ve always loved this Greek proverb: “A society grows great when men plant trees whose shade they know they will never sit in.”

I recently took the Tri-Rail up to Lake Worth to visit the Palm Beach Cultural Council and I had a blast watching the sunrise, listening to my headphones and writing in my journal. It was a peaceful and productive way to start my day.

When native plants are established they’ll use far less water and require less upkeep. Plant a garden. I repurposed old pallets on my patio to make a small garden of tomatoes, kale, arugula and carrots. We’re headed into summer so vegetables won’t fair too well, but food forests of tropical plants (such as banana, papaya, mango, avocado or star fruit) are generally low maintenance and can thrive year-round in South Florida.

Wear them out (your clothes, not the planet).

This open, scooped back fashion-forward tee is made 100 percent from recycled water bottles and a portion of proceeds benefit the environment. Miamibased boutique My Fox House carries the line by ConSURFvation. $58; www.myfoxhouse. com.

Check out www.fashionproject.com where you can donate clothes to be resold online. First you select which charity you’d like to benefit (obviously I’m partial to the environmental causes), then they’ll send a donation bag that you fill – they cover the shipping – after your donated items are sold on the site 55 percent of the proceeds will benefit the charity you selected and for every five pieces sold you’ll receive a $40 Nordstrom gift card. Everyone wins!

Smell ya later.

Chemicals poison our bodies and our planet when consumed. Some of my favorite substitutes are: Hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth and laundry – instead of bleach. Essential oils (like lavender or peppermint) can be used to make cleaning supplies. And to freshen a room put a drop of eucalyptus oil on a lamp – I do this at the office and it smells like a spa.


When we buy locally-sourced foods we not only support residents in our own community, but we reduce greenhouse emissions produced from having to ship an apple from Washington, refrigerate eggplants from Canada or package tomatoes from Mexico. Check out www.localfoodsouthflorida. org for a comprehensive list of local suppliers, markets and events in your area. Or visit www.thegreenpick.com, a Broward County organic delivery service.

Curious what kind of footprint you’re carrying around? Check yourself out at: www.myfootprint.org.

I know you go through loads of plastic baggies. I know this because I used to, too. I still have a whole cabinet full of them. But, when I’m at the store I now use reusable bags (I keep them in my trunk so I never forget them). Or, find ways to ensure bags get multiple uses (like picking up after your animals or bringing lunch in them).

Paper or plastic? Neither. Bag it up!

Health. It’s what’s for dinner.

Don’t just recycle be a smart recycler.

15-minute rule.

Like the 5-second rule for eating dropped food, I try to live by this rule: Just say NO if you know something will be thrown away within 15 minutes. This goes for water bottles, disposable razors, receipts, grocery bags or plastic ware. I’m always surprised by the amount of waste we can keep out of the landfills.

Broward B-Cycle gives users (both local or tourists) access to a collection of more than 275 bicycles year-round (courteous of South Florida’s awesome weather). I recently signed up and was pleasantly surprised by an additional perk: A handful of more than 20 bicycle-friendly establishments provide members with perks – like 10% off at T-Mex Cantina, a free round of pool at Blondies’ or $10 off a biodegradable oil change at EcoFriendly Auto Center.

Rule the Road (on a bicycle).

Sun Sentinel

Visit your city’s Web site for specific guidelines for recycling to make sure you’re being a proactive recycler. Some highlights: take the contents out of a bag and taking the lids off containers (most don’t accept plastic bags or lids); completely empty containers and lightly rinse. I printed off the “quick reference guide” from www.fortlauderdale.gov/recycle so my neighbors and I know what can be recycled.
