> It’s the kind of gloomy, gray morning in LA that visitors are shocked to see, a reaction locals laugh about because they know it’s standard for the spring and summer months—the city’s little secret is a rolling blanket of solid clouds that stretches from miles out over the ocean and the beach to Beverly Hills and beyond.

Despite the gloom, there’s an energy shift as the leggy blond enters the room. Wearing a white button-down shirt and jeans, Stacy Keibler walks into the studio like she just woke up that way—that effortless, laid-back “just-rolled-out-ofbed” style that mere mortals spend hours in front of the mirror to achieve. In a word, she’s glowing.

Add these six ultraluxe must-haves to your “most covetable” list.

And the quintessential California beach beauty that men fawn over and women envy somehow manages to be even more fit, more beautiful and more personable than previously imagined. “It’s really nice to meet you,” she says, shaking hands with everyone in the room and then doing a double take to make sure she didn’t skip anyone. She’s there to work and look beyond-incredible while doing it—but she is also focused on taking those few extra minutes to get to know you and deliver a smile while doing it.

DID YOU KNOW? Clothing and societal influences are two main factors that drive up the trend of surgery. Cleavagebaring tops relate to an increase in breast surgery and celebrities who have embraced their curvaceous backsides may be the reason for a surge in butt augmentation procedures.

over the last decade, arm lift procedures have increased by more than 4,000 percent. first lady Michelle obama, who’s known for her supertoned arms, is cited as an inspiration for this trend.

perhaps the original organic skin-care product, the mineral multitasker, skin-conditioning ingredient of volcanic clay has set the stage for a number of spa rituals throughout time.

at its core, hara is a massage that focuses on the abdomen region. but it is much more than just a treatment that targets the muscles, as many followers of it believe it is an essential part of energy flow and overall well-being.

BEAUTY BOOST Asking others for help isn’t always the easiest thing. Sometimes we struggle endlessly on our own to find answers to our problems both in beauty and in life. We research online, we buy products, we grasp onto anything that promises a solution. But there are times when we need to reach out and ask for help that only a professional can provide. And when we do—that’s when we notice dramatic changes that we just can’t achieve on our own. Like struggling with a cold that you can’t kick with over-the-counter drugstore products; sometimes it can take powerful antibiotic intervention that only a physician can provide. The same holds true for beauty issues. I battle day in and day out with pigment changes. What starts as little freckles morphs daily into darker patches. With all the years of research and knowledge from the magazine, I know what causes them and what ingredients can help. However, the magic formula when it comes to using products to help a problem is consistency and patience, neither of which seems to come easy to me. So, after months of struggling on my own to no avail, I finally reached

BEAUTY BUZZ THE NOSE JOB IS THE MOST POPULAR FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY PROCEDURE

ELISE MINTON EXECUTIVE BEAUTY EDITOR

Rhinoplasty (otherwise known as a nose job) ranked as the most popular facial plastic surgery procedure for three years in a row, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). The reason: it’s the most prominent feature on the face and the first one that most people see. Commonly performed on women (and men) under the age of 35, rhinoplasty can make a big difference in one’s appearance, creating a more balanced, symmetrical and harmonious look. While there’s not a one-size-fits-all concept to the perfect nose, the most important feature of a pretty nose is that it blends seamlessly into the face and doesn’t attract too much attention.

SUMMER 2013

For years, rumors have been swirling of inventions, supplements and the like that promise to stop hair from graying once and for all. It’s been proven that aging coupled with environmental factors block the production of melanin (aka color), causing hair to gray. Throw in changes to the enzymes that are responsible for stimulating hair growth, repair and making color and you’ve got a full head of aging hair. While we have yet to see anything that works in its entirety, besides trustworthy hair dye, it is rumored that a new pill in the works may help fight graying by simulating the protein that naturally prevents it. Research from L’Oréal shows that mimicking the tyrosine protein (TRP-2, which contributes to progressive graying when absent in the hair follicle) may prevent graying. While we don’t know if this will be the fountain of youth for your hair, it’s one step closer to potentially staying free of grays. Stay tuned to NewBeauty for updates!

BILLION THE AMOUNT OF MONEY AMERICANS SPENT ON SURGICAL PROCEDURES IN 2012

EAT CARBS AND LOSE WEIGHT I, like most people, have a love-hate relationship with carbohydrates. I love how they taste, but hate what they do to my stomach and hips. Now, a new diet known as carb cycling allows you to still indulge in wheat-based carbs, depending on how you work out. On days when you focus on anaerobic exercises like strength training as well as weight resistance, you’re going to want to follow a low-carb, high-protein diet; save the high-carb and low-protein meals for the aerobic and cardiovascular days. New York nutritionist Nicolette Pace explained that the diet allows you to change up what you eat daily so you never get stuck in a rut, while also serving as a way to maximize your body’s brown (good) fat burning potential and increase stored energy.

Hailed from 1930 to 1972 as the “House of Silence”—a discreet skin-care haven that catered to the likes of Hollywood stars and European royalty—the new Soho locale follows a groundbreaking approach to long-term skin health based on regular skin assessments and getting skin back to its most optimal state. But it’s not as simple as just making an appointment and showing up for it. The only way to experience a treatment is to buy into an exclusive membership; rates begin at $1,000 for a trial membership, which consists of four treatments, or $3,000 for an annual membership, which includes 15 skin treatments.

Bond No. 9 is known for its city-centric fragrances that each echo a different attribute of Manhattan—think the most notorious parks, landmarks and icons. The newest addition to the 57-scent portfolio is Central Park South for Swarovski, a fresh fragrance in a spring-themed bottle of pink blossoms, accented by a Swarovski crystal top. Inspired by one of the world’s most celebrated plots of lush greenery, the white floral scent captures the livelihood of the elite neighborhood with notes of clementine, black currant and violet leaves that ripen into a floral bouquet. $390, bondno9.com

It’s not every day that fragrance and jewelry collide, but when they do it’s an awe-inspiring alliance. Recently, Le Métier de Beauté teamed up with Ken Downing, Neiman Marcus’ fashion director, to launch Pampille de Seduction, a custom-designed, limited-edition fragrance-encompassing necklace. Dangling from the 24-karat gold-plated chain are 18 rare, hand-cut carnelian stones, emitting one of three scents—amber, gardenia or orchid. The interchangeable scents are embedded in a “fragrance chamber” and continually release the fragrance of choice. T R E A T M E N T

THE $1,000 FACIAL THAT SLOWS DOWN AGING Specialized skin-care treatments can command hefty price tags, but $1,000 for a facial definitely tops the list. The newly opened Chatwal Hotel in New York houses the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa where famed skin-care guru Cornelia Zicu (she’s the name behind the celebrated Cornelia Spa) performs the Red Door Grand Debut Facial. Exclusive to the property, the two-hour experience promises to create a renewed and transcendental experience that will elevate the mind and body to a place of youth and beauty. To achieve that, the skin is first evaluated and a tailored treatment is devised to boost collagen and circulation, helping to slow down the rate at which skin ages. $1,000, reddoorspas.com

BIKINI AREA

LEGS

FACE The face is the only area that can be treated with just about any type of hair-removal technique. Threading and waxing work best for the area above the upper lip (depilatories can be used here, too) as well as the brow area. Lasers are another option, but only above the lips— never for hair removal around the eyes.

UNDERARMS Shaving is the most popular way to get rid of underarm hair, but laser hair removal or waxing is effective as well.


BRIEFS the insider’s guide to hair removal

Learn about the latest hair-removal devices at newbeauty.com/videos

LEGS When it comes to treating the hair on your legs, consider whether you can afford to sport some stubble for a while. If you can, try laser hair removal or waxing. If not, shaving is probably your best bet.

soft Wax Vs. hard Wax:

Which Works Better?

soft Wax

Applied to skin and removed via strips (think “S”: soft uses strips)

BEsT For Arms, legs pros Can tackle larger areas like the legs. CoNs Some argue it’s harder on sensitive skin and is more uncomfortable.

soft wax

BIKINI AREA Since the hair on the bikini line tends to be thick and coarse, a laser-based method is usually the best choice for longerlasting results; waxing works well too.

hard wax

although the tWo types of Waxes are generally a personal preference, here’s What to consider:

hard Wax

Applied to the skin in a thick layer and left to harden for a few seconds before being pulled off—without any strips.

BEsT For Brows, lip, chin, underarms, bikini area pros Proponents of hard wax say it’s less irritating and easier to control. CoNs Takes a lot longer to remove, making it impractical for larger areas of the body.

TREATED WITH JUST ABOUT EVERY TYPE OF HAIR-REMOVAL OPTION,

BROW

THE BROW AREA IS A SPECIAL CASE SINCE IT USUALLY REQUIRES “SHAPING” AND PRECISION.

IF YOU HAVE

Some skill in the brow-shaping department or a few errant hairs YOUR BEST OPTION IS

TWEEZING PROS It’s inexpensive, can be done at home with no prep work and allows you to hone in on specific hairs—results last longer since the hair is removed from below the surface. CONS Some find tweezing the brows tedious. It can leave the treated area red immediately after (for a few hours at most). WHAT IT FEELS LIKE Some discomfort,

but it is best described as a “pinch.”

BROW + LIP IF YOU HAVE

Sensitive skin, want longer-term results and need the help of a professional to get your ideal brow shape

IF YOU HAVE

A tolerance for a “regrowth period,” a desire for results that last longer than what you’ll get with threading and want an option that can be done at home YOUR BEST OPTION IS

YOUR BEST OPTION IS

THREADING PROS The technique is budget-friendly, fast and, unlike other hair-removal treatments, “it is extremely precise,” says Glenn Alianza, senior threader for Ziba Beauty at Fred Segal, Santa Monica.

CONS There is still a chance that breakouts and ingrown hairs can develop, although they are often caused by post-treatment creams or lotions. Threading is also very difficult to master at home. WHAT IT FEELS LIKE Alianza says the more skilled a threader is, and the closer they hold the thread to the skin, the less discomfort. (Our staff gets it regularly and the consensus is it hurts a bit—especially on the upper lip.)

WAXING PROS It is quick (plan on about 10 minutes or so) and the results can last anywhere from two to six weeks. Plus, it can be performed at home. CONS Hair needs to grow back in so the wax has something to hang onto. “Waxing is not without the risk of breakouts, bumps and ingrown hairs,” says Las Vegas dermatologist Dr. Alison Tam. WHAT IT FEELS LIKE The pain associated

with waxing depends on the skill set of your aesthetician and your pain tolerance. Any discomfort is over fairly quickly. MORE >

cons Can cause skin irritation and redness, and since the hair is removed at the surface and not at the root, the results are comparable to what’s achieved with shaving.

WHAT IS AN ILLUMINATOR?

WONDERING HOW TO GET SKIN THAT “GLOWS FROM

Subtler than highlighters, celebrity makeup artist Justin Tyme says illuminators give the skin a luminous finish. Used alone or alongside other makeup, illuminators contain pearlized pigments like mica that either reflect or diffuse light to even out your skin tone. “This gives the skin a fresh look. As we age, the skin loses moisture and it becomes harder for the skin to look radiant,” says Dolce&Gabbana national makeup artist Christian McCulloch.

HIGHLIGHTERS VS. ILLUMINATORS

“HIGHLIGHTERS have more shimmer and should be worn on the high points of the face,” says celebrity makeup artist Andrea Fairweather. Also, highlighters must be worn with makeup to avoid lines of distinction.

ILLUMINATORS can be worn with or without makeup. They come in a variety of shades, but illuminators have less pigment than highlighters because of smaller particles.

THE ULTIMATE MAKEUP MIRACLE: ILLUMINATORS

Some may think highlighters and illuminators are one in the same, but there are distinct differences between them.

FULL-BODY GLOW A radiant look isn’t just reserved for the face. Applying a bit of shimmer to the legs, collarbone and shoulders can create that dewy glow and make your body look longer and leaner.

HOW TO APPLY You can mix your luminizer (if it’s cream or liquid-based) with a moisturizer, primer or foundation—adding it to foundation boosts warmth—and then blend it all over your face. The key to preventing your skin from appearing greasy or overly shimmery is to not apply too much of the product. Use your fingers for creams and liquids but a brush for powders and more solid formulas.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOR Selecting between a light-colored illuminator or a dark one comes down to the look you’re trying to create and a little trial and error. Follow these tips to choose the perfect shade.

IF YOUR SKIN IS PALE, stick to white- and pink-based illuminators. “Sometimes a gold- or bronze-colored illuminator can work on pale skin but it requires good blending so it doesn’t look patchy,” says McCulloch.

IF YOUR SKIN IS DARK, try deep bronze and golden illuminators. “Pinks, silvers and whites don’t look as natural on dark skin,” says McCulloch.

THE DIFFERENT FORMULAS CREAMS A cream illuminator is best for wrinkle- and line-free skin (the product can settle into them). “It’s also good when you want more of a wet look,” says Fairweather. Mix it into your foundation or apply it with a makeup sponge by pressing it into your skin. LIQUIDS AND FLUIDS Preferred by makeup artists, fluids can be used alone or mixed with foundation based upon how much sheen you want your skin to have. POWDERS Available in a multitude of shades, illuminating powders should be applied after all other makeup.

Vitamin A by far has the most research behind it, more so than any other vitamin-based skincare ingredient on the market, with more than 700 published scientific articles on it.


TREATS ACNE. When used to treat acne, vitamin A normalizes how the skin sloughs away dead cells, which helps keep pores clear so they don’t clog and lead to the formation of pustules and inflammation.

“Vitamin A, also known as retinoic acid, has antioxidant properties and is a cell-communicating ingredient, so it helps the cells to function normally,” explains Baton Rouge, LA, dermatologist Ann Zedlitz, MD.

Vitamin C aids in collagen formation. But, New York dermatologist Macrene Alexiades, MD, says, “It can also be a prooxidant (they speed up the oxidation process) if not complemented by vitamin E or other antioxidants.”

> It’s the kind of gloomy, gray morning in LA that visitors are shocked to see, a reaction locals laugh about because they know it’s standard for the spring and summer months—the city’s little secret is a rolling blanket of solid clouds that stretches from miles out over the ocean and the beach to Beverly Hills and beyond.

Despite the gloom, there’s an energy shift as the leggy blond enters the room. Wearing a white button-down shirt and jeans, Stacy Keibler walks into the studio like she just woke up that way—that effortless, laid-back “just-rolled-out-ofbed” style that mere mortals spend hours in front of the mirror to achieve. In a word, she’s glowing.

And the quintessential California beach beauty that men fawn over and women envy somehow manages to be even more fit, more beautiful and more personable than previously imagined. “It’s really nice to meet you,” she says, shaking hands with everyone in the room and then doing a double take to make sure she didn’t skip anyone. She’s there to work and look beyond-incredible while doing it—but she is also focused on taking those few extra minutes to get to know you and deliver a smile while doing it.

When I speak with her a few days later, she’s even more sincere. She’s not just spitting out sound bytes— it’s not about Hollywood or even her image; it’s about what she’s learned, what she’s experienced and what she’s excited to share.

“My first job was at a Powerhouse Gym when I was a teenager,” she says, adding that, while she considers that her initial “foray” into fitness, she was into beauty ever since her childhood best friend introduced her to her skin-care regimen while she was around the same age— a rules-oriented protocol that included a face cream, eye cream and toner and consisted of a few steps. “But I always loved fitness—growing up, I was a dancer and a cheerleader, but I guess that first job was really the official start of it all.” It’s endearing to hear the Baltimore native talk about her “life before Hollywood,” a biography that’s rooted in her hometown (where she visits often), transitioned into a job as a Baltimore Ravens cheerleader, and later the professional wrestling world arena and a stint on Dancing With the Stars, and is now set for the next big thing in summer television as a host that will make her a household name. She has always been known for her legs, but her looks are only a small part of the equation— and it’s something she clearly keeps in check and helps anyone else who questions it do the same.

SKIN SAVIOR “Facial sprays—I use a few different ones that are all-natural and organic. When I’m running around all day, I just spray it on and immediately feel fresher. It’s really easy to take with you and hydration is key.”

It doesn’t matter who you are,” she says, before politely thanking me for telling her she looks glowing and asking her how she does it. “I hope that shows with me.

But there’s more of an emphasis on that kind of energy here. It just seems that the best trainers, energy healers and wellness experts gravitate out West.” When I ask her what that means for her, she admits she’s a bit of a buff. “I’ve tried it all.

There’s so much knowledge out there now that tells us that eliminating certain foods in our diets might be linked to pinpointing an allergy or something more serious—and I’m fascinated with that.

CELEBRITY

THE STARS’ BEAUTY SECRETS

GET-IN-SHAPE STRATEGY Other celebrities have received a lot of flack for endorsing impossible-to-follow restrictive diets— it’s too hard, it’s too expensive, it’s too selective— but from Stacy, it’s straightforward. “Being healthy takes hard work—but it’s accessible to anyone. Even if it just starts with you telling yourself, ‘you are what you eat,’ and looking at every label and understanding the ingredients. I tell myself, ‘I won’t eat it unless my grandmother’s grandmother could read the ingredient and know what it is.’” “It’s like a bug—you catch it and then you can’t stop. You see a little bit of change, and you keep going because you want more of it. It’s a feeling of empowerment. You feel better, you lose a few pounds and you can’t get enough of it. It’s addictive,” she says. “Do it with a friend, make it fun. I’m an advocate of accessible things. Start with 10 minutes of jumping jacks in your house and go from there. Make it fun and focus on the journey.”

“Being healthy takes hard work—but it’s accessible to anyone.” THE ULTIMATE ANTI-AGING TOOL She’s given straight, simple advice, and, as I say good-bye, she tells me one more takeaway that I take to heart: “Everyone asks me ‘What have you had done?’ I haven’t done anything but change my diet. I’ve been more conscious— of what I put in my body and what I put on my skin. It’s not that complicated: You are what you eat and your skin is your largest organ, so what you put on it is important. That’s my secret. It’s pretty simple.”

FOOD SPLURGE “Ice cream. I love it, but I don’t eat it because I eliminated dairy from my diet. So, instead I make ‘superfood’ ice cream at home. It is sugar- and dairy-free. You basically use natural, healthy ingredients, like cacao, and it ends up being the consistency of ice cream— my favorites are chocolate peanut butter and salted caramel—it’s amazing!”

healthy lifestyle.

How it works Even if you eat well, your body is still exposed to toxins and chemicals that, if not flushed out, can lead to lethargy, disease, chronic inflammation and even cancer. “We ingest chemicals through food, some of which can leave a toxic residue because they are highly acidic,” says Annie Lawless, cofounder of Suja Juice. “Meat, dairy, gluten and sugar cause more mucus and toxins to reside in the body than a diet of high-quality fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and fish.” Although the body naturally “cleanses” itself, the effects are not the same as a detoxification.

If toxins aren’t eliminated properly, they circulate in the blood and tissues.

Raw juices (they don’t contain preservatives or additives, nor are they pasteurized) are void of fiber, which aids in digestion.

Some believe the lack of fiber enables enzymes and nutrients to be absorbed directly into the bloodstream and move quickly to the liver for a powerful detox.

THE GREAT JUICE CLEANSING DEBATE

A lot of cleansing systems incorporate at least one daily nut- and/or milk-based drink because it lends healthy fat and protein.

THE RIGHT WAY TO DO A JUICE CLEANSE To reap the benefits of a cleanse, you need to follow the rules. “It’s pointless to do one if you are going to cheat because you’re getting out of elimination mode and restarting digestion. When this happens, the body can’t put its attention on detoxification,” explains Lawless.

B E FOR E The body needs to be prepped so it isn’t overloaded by too many fruits and vegetables without the solid foods it may be used to. Cut out processed foods, dairy, refined carbs, meat, coffee and alcohol a few days before. Stick to whole grains, greens and sprouts, and drink plenty of water.

WHERE THE CRAZE CAME FROM Juicing dates back to the 1930s, but the surge came a few years ago, first with a strong presence in New York and Los Angeles. Juice cleanses have since become popular as the uptick in natural, healthy food has become more the norm. “Celebrities have pushed the trend forward but juices are an easy way to incorporate something healthy into a busy lifestyle,” says celebrity nutritionist Christine Avanti. Consuming nothing (with the exception of water and herbal tea) but raw juices for one to seven days helps release toxins and solid foods in the digestive system. “Since the pulp and fiber are removed, it’s thought that the nutrients in juice are assimilated quickly into your body and bloodstream. This gives the immune system an immediate boost and feeds the cells quick nutrition,” says Dr. Frank Lipman, founder of New York’s Eleven Eleven Wellness Center. Juicing does omit fiber found in fruits and vegetables, which some experts see as a downfall.

DUR I NG Stay away from solid foods, but drink as much water as you want— herbal teas are OK, too. “The body needs to be kept out of digestion mode so it can focus on elimination. Juices have no fiber so the vitamins, nutrients, minerals and enzymes are ready for absorption,” says Lawless. AF TE R Slowly reintroduce clean, solid, organic foods and begin with those that have a high water content, like apples, cucumbers, and watermelon; after a day or two add in lean protein. Incorporate juices as a snack or with a meal. “The key is to stick with a diet that eliminates inflammatory foods like sugar and gluten,” says Dr. Lipman.

IS

JUICING HEALTHY?

FOR IT. “I’m definitely for juicing. Waste in the body equates to weight, so when you eliminate some of the toxic buildup, you lose weight easily. Juice cleanses also allow you to reset your palate by removing complicated flavors and textures, so you get back to basics and understand what your body really needs. Clearing out the toxins may also help with tiredness, depression, moodiness and your general well-being,” says Lawless.

NOT EVERYONE IS JUMPING ON THE JUICE CLEANSE BANDWAGON. SOME HEALTH EXPERTS FEEL IT’S NOTHING BUT A FLEETING TREND.

Most people don’t get their recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables to begin with, and drinking juices is an easy way to provide the body with them.

YOU’RE CONSUMING LARGE AMOUNTS OF VEGETABLES.

TOXINS ARE REMOVED. As toxins accumulate internally they can lead to inflammation, diseases and a compromised immune system. Fruits and vegetables help release trapped toxins.

T

THE UPSIDES AGAINST IT. “I’m not a fan of juice cleanses. Strict juicing as a meal replacement is not a good idea because it omits essential nutrients, like protein, from the diet. Juicing also removes fiber. Without fiber, protein or healthy fats, blood sugar levels rise rapidly causing fat storage, which ultimately leaves you hungry. A lot of my clients who have done juice cleanses have lost weight, but then gain it back after they’ve finished the cleanse,” says Avanti.

ENERGY LEVELS ARE INCREASED. You may feel more alert and focused because there are fewer artificial additives and chemicals in your body. Many juicers say they also sleep better.

SKIN LOOKS CLEARER AND MORE RADIANT. As the liver is detoxed, and there are fewer chemicals in the body, the skin is purged and tends to look better.

MINIMAL WEIGHT LOSS. On average, you can expect to lose a few pounds, some of which are water weight.

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM MAY BE STRENGTHENED. Immunity is said to be boosted, so it’s thought that you’re less susceptible to allergies and becoming sick.

THE DOWNSIDES

YOU MAY FEEL BLOATED OR CONSTIPATED. Lack of fiber can make the stomach feel full and uncomfortable.

CRAVINGS FOR SUGAR AND CARBS. Changing your diet drastically, even if it’s only for a few days, can make you crave sweets and carbs. Any withdrawal from caffeine or sugar can cause headaches.

WEIGHT MAY BE REGAINED. “The results are often not sustainable, so people end up gaining weight back,” says Dr. Lipman. MORE >

HOW HONEY IS MADE It’s a no-brainer that honey is made by bees, but according to the National Honey Board, it’s not that simple. The 60,000 or so bees in a hive may collectively travel as much as 55,000 miles and visit more than 2 million flowers to gather enough nectar to make just one pound of honey.

Bees fly from flower to flower collecting nectar. Since the variety of flowers in the world is so diverse, so is the honey that’s garnered from certain areas, which is why there are so many different types.

2 The bees suck out the nectar and store it in sacs within their bodies. After filling their sacs with nectar, the bees fly back to their hive and regurgitate the stored nectar into the mouths of house bees.

3 These house bees are assigned the job of adding enzymes from their bodies to the nectar. The enzymes cause the water in the nectar to evaporate, turning the nectar into honey.

HEALTH BENEFITS 1

TOPICAL ADVANTAGES ANTI-IRRITANT

Honey helps calm irritations with antibacterial and antiinflammatory properties.

MOISTURIZER

Honey is a natural humectant that draws moisture from the air.

EXFOLIANT

Made from simple sugar enzymes, honey is a good exfoliator for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

ANTIOXIDANT

“Different color honeys have different nutrients,” says New York nutritionist Nicolette Pace. “Darker honey has a higher antioxidant value because it has less water and is more concentrated.”

NUTRIENT DENSE

“Honey contains nutritional benefits like trace amounts of B-complex vitamins and vitamin C, minerals, protein amino acids and enzymes,” explains Pace. “It is also a slower-absorbing sugar so it can be slower to raise blood sugar (less glycemic) as long as you don’t overload.”

THERAPEUTIC

Raw honey in particular provides an added boost of nutrients to the digestive system.

NATURALLY SWEET Considering that honey contains about 40 percent fructose (almost two times sweeter than regular sugar) you need less of it to sweeten. “It is also more versatile and can be used in dressings for salads, glazes and beverages,” adds Pace.

Propolis: Comprised of biologically active tree resin harvested by bees, and mixed with a few of their own secrets, propolis is a natural germicide that is high in antioxidants.

Beeswax: Contributes as an antiinflammatory and anti-allergenic.

RAW HONEY

WHY IT’S BETTER

ACCORDING TO HOLISTIC NUTRITIONIST MIA JACOBS, RAW HONEY IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR INTERNAL CONSUMPTION, “BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN PASTEURIZED, THE PROCESS OF WHICH KILLS OFF SOME OF ITS ENZYMES AND NUTRIENTS.” PACE ADDS, “WHEN HONEY IS HEATED, PASTEURIZED AND FILTERED, YEAST SPORES AND PROTEIN ENZYMES ARE DAMAGED AND MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE TO ACTIVATE NUTRIENTS DURING METABOLISM.”

02 WHAT TO LOOK FOR INTERNAL NATURAL NUTRITION With a creamy consistency, J.Friend and Co White Clover Honey includes a blend of vanilla bean, coconut, pineapple and citrus flavors. $9, jfriend.co.nz

TOPICAL

DRY SKIN SAVIOR R Sourced ourced from raw honey and mixed with softening shea butter, L’Occitane Shea Butter & Honey Hand Cream treats even the most sensitive skin types to a dose of hydration. $10, usa.loccitane.com

By definition, any honey that is unheated, unpasteurized and unprocessed can be “raw;” some manufacturers consider unprocessed, slightly warmed honey (which allows for a longer shelf life) as raw.

03 HOW MUCH YOU NEED

T maximize the potential therapeutic benefits of eating To honey, Pace recommends anywhere from one to two tablespoons a day and to use it in place of regular sweets. ““This helps to avoid going overboard with sugar.”

04 AS A SUGAR SUBSTITUTE

Honey boasts both the power of natural sweetness and added nutrients. “There are no nutritious benefits associated with white, refined sugar—and the body has to work overtime to get rid of it,” says Jacobs. “Since honey retains moisture, it actually keeps baked goods moist and fresh longer than sugar can, which makes it a perfect substitution.”

You need to know what to look for and what to avoid. “There are variables that play into at-home color,” says Elena Ruiz, color expert at New York’s Ouidad Salon. “Dry, porous hair grabs color and makes hair look opaque. If you go too light, bad roots can occur.” Highlights and dramatic changes are best left to a professional but for minor tweaks, at-home color is OK. “Most colors shown on the box are pretty accurate as long as you stay within two shades of your color,” says Ruiz.

BABY BLOND To get a pretty blond shade like Gwyneth’s, Redken Creative Consultant for Color Tracey Cunningham says to take into consideration the hair’s condition and starting color. “We get Gwyneth’s multidimensional blond color with a base and a mix of highlights and lowlights.”

GWYNETH PALTROW

WHEAT-TONED BLOND CREAM-COLORED BLOND “Ask for a heavy round of light blond foiled highlights. If you’re naturally dark, lighten the base to a dark ash blond and follow with a rich neutral gloss for shine,” says Adam Livermore, colorist Oribe Education Team.

LIGHT GOLDEN BLOND

Jennifer’s colorist Michael Canale uses highlights to bring out the light golden tones in her hair and bright sandy tones to make her eyes and skin pop. “Start with a light golden brown color and highlight from root to tip, using lighter blond shades on the ends and around the face,” he says.

Ideal for those with light to medium warm skin tones, O’Connor suggests telling your colorist that you want a single process golden blond base with fine ivory highlights woven throughout. “The base color will need to be touched up about every four weeks; highlight just the crown every eight weeks,” she says.

DIRTY BLOND “Dirty blond is so chic! If you’re naturally dark, try a neutral light brown base with beige-blond ends. But If you’re naturally light, avoid this color—the roots need constant maintenance,” says Livermore.

THE BEST COLOR SHADES

For color like Heidi’s, celebrity colorist Rona O’Connor says to ask for a medium golden honey blond base (it has warm golden tones with honey undertones) and ivory highlights. “This works best for those with natural golden hair and a tan.”

JESSICA ALBA

COPPERY BROWN

RICH ESPRESSO BROWN

Go for a warm brown base with coppery highlights that are two shades lighter than the base. Coppercolored hair looks best when it’s supershiny so have your colorist put a gloss on as the final step.

“This color works well on almost all skin tones,” says O’Connor. “It’s a dark espresso brown shade that’s highlighted midlength to the ends with a cool auburn hue.” To keep the red tones bright and from fading, freshen the hair once a month with a semipermanent glaze in a natural or cool-toned auburn.

An easy look to achieve on naturally dark hair, Livermore says to ask your colorist to warm up brunette shades with a mahogany gloss. “This allows you to keep the overall depth, have more shine, and get extra vibrance on any natural highlights or light ends.”

THE BEST COLOR SHADES

“Ashley’s hair is dark brown with subtle highlights to give it that chestnut brown color. A golden glaze gives the hair a natural look. You need to touch the color up every two to three months or when the roots start to come in,” says Warren.

Comprised of omega oils, hemp seeds, olive oil, sea salt, mint and gooseberry, among other hair helpers, these customized elixirs do wonders for faded, dull color. “The oils replicate the body’s natural oils and lubricate the hair shaft, making hair soft, smooth and shiny and your color more luminous,” says George. Taking upward of one hour to perform the treatment, hair is left feeling softer and your color bright and vibrant—and it’s a great option for reviving color in between appointments. $150, jonathanandgeorge.com

DARK CHOCOLATE BROWN

ALMOST SOFT BLACK

Most flattering on those with light eyes and light skin or with an olive skin tone, a single process dark cool brown can be used to achieve this look.

“This is actually a superdark brown with cool undertones. The color looks black against the skin, but it’s easier to wear than true black and isn’t oversaturated or too opaque,” says Livermore.

“Jessica’s color is a true strawberry shade with a lot of gold tones in it to give it that rusty golden color. This is a great color to wear in the summer,” says Warren. This shade complements paler skin best.

JESSICA CHASTAIN

RED VIOLET One of the harder shades to pull off, this daring hue can give skin a naturally tanned appearance and add character to your overall look. “You can maximize this red shade by asking your stylist for red highlights, which will give contrast and texture to the style,” explains L’Official.

MEDIUM AUBURN WITH RUBY AND COPPER UNDERTONES BRIGHT RED “Pale skin with peach undertones is ideal for this copper shade with orange and gold undertones, but it suits pale cool skin with pink undertones too,” says O’Connor.

CHRISTINA HENDRICKS

MEDIUM COPPER According to O’Connor, this is a lowmaintenance color that consists of a warm brunette shade with copper undertones and is worn well on pale, medium and dark warm skin tones with freckles.

JULIANNE MOORE

“The easiest way to get Debra’s color is with a natural medium auburn brown and highlights of ruby, copper and honey,” says O’Connor, who works with the actress. “This color doesn’t require highlights at each salon visit as it is a dimensional shade with a natural auburn base. That grounds the color overall and allows it to fade evenly.”

DEBRA MESSING

TRANSITIONAL AUBURN To get this multidimensional auburn, L’Official suggests asking your stylist to use a golden brown base with added highlights around your face. “If you want to pull off this transitional color, flawless skin is key,” he adds.

MILLION The number of Americans who suffer from rosacea.

CELEBRITIES MAY SEEM TO BE IMMUNE TO THE MORE COMMON SKIN AILMENTS AND PROBLEMS THAT AFFECT THE REST OF US, BUT, AS WE FOUND OUT, THAT’S NOT ALWAYS THE CASE. BEST KNOWN FOR HER ROLE AS MIRANDA HOBBES ON SEX AND THE CITY, ACTRESS CYNTHIA NIXON CANDIDLY SHARES HER EXPERIENCES WITH ROSACEA AND HOW SHE’S LEARNED TO GET THE SKIN CONDITION UNDER CONTROL.

BATTLE

WITH

what is rosacea? DID YOU KNOW? Research suggests that there may be a hereditary component to rosacea although it has yet to be fully proven. Irish and English ethnicities are typically more prone to rosacea.

110

NEWBEAUTY

Often confused with acne (both rosacea and acne produce bumps and pimples although with rosacea, the blemishes are more painful and blackheads don’t exist), rosacea is a condition that causes the skin to become red and bumpy. Rosacea comes and goes—certain factors instigate flare-ups—and tends to affect the cheeks, nose and forehead, but can also occur on the neck, chest, scalp and ears. If not treated properly, the skin can progressively worsen and even cause facial tissue to become extremely red, swollen and irritated. Currently, there is no cure for rosacea, but the disorder can be managed with prescription-strength topicals, oral medications, some laser and light-based treatments, controlling the trigger factors and using gentle, nonirritating products.

SUMMER 2013

the first signs of a problem

“I had acne as a teenager and in my 20s so when I encountered rosacea in my 30s, I thought I was breaking out again. I started using a lot of at-home scrubs, peels and drying acne products. I figured if I kept my pores clean, my skin would clear up, but it didn’t. This went on for years until I noticed a suspicious mole and saw a dermatologist. My doctor gave me the ‘I have good and bad news for you’ speech. My mole wasn’t cancerous but she noticed rosacea on my face. I had no idea what rosacea was but quickly educated myself on it.”

WHAT HER DERMATOLOGIST SAYS “Rosacea typically occurs in the center of the face with overall redness, pimple-like bumps and even small blood vessels. Unlike rosacea, acne is found on the chin and jawline and typically there are clogged pores or blackheads,” says New York dermatologist Rosemarie Ingleton, MD, who treats Cynthia. “Cynthia thought that her bumps and redness were acne. She was using anti-acne products that were too irritating and making her skin worse.”

CYNTHIA NIXON: MY SKIN STORY

how i control my rosacea

“My doctor explained that this vascular condition was often brought on by certain triggers like going out in the sun, eating spicy foods, overscrubbing the skin and taking hot baths—all things I was guilty of. I knew I had to make some changes in my lifestyle and follow what was prescribed to me if I wanted to get my skin on the path to being clear.’’

the treatment

“ ”

“I was given a prescription-strength topical gel that I needed to use every day as well as an oral anti-inflammatory specifically for rosacea. That, along with the right skin-care products—gentle and mild as opposed to extremely abrasive— would help to calm and soothe my skin. It worked and my skin cleared up like magic. I still follow this same regimen today. I experience flareups from time to time, especially since I can’t totally give up my baths and red wine.”

my advice

“Bad skin has a direct effect on one’s self-confidence; I know it did for me. If your skin looks bad then, most of the time, you feel bad about yourself. Piling on makeup can mask some of the signs of rosacea for the time being, but it does nothing to make your skin better. If you think you may be suffering from rosacea, go to the dermatologist—don’t try and diagnose yourself or self-medicate. Rosacea can take on many different forms and look different on one person than it does on the next so you need a medical expert to assess your skin. A professional diagnosis, the right skin-care routine and prescription-strength products helped me manage my rosacea. The longer you wait to get the right treatment for your skin—whether it’s rosacea or something else—the harder it is to treat it.”

WHAT HER DERMATOLOGIST SAYS WHAT HER DERMATOLOGIST DER SAYS “Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition that causes bumps, redness and possibly even eye irritation. Those with fair skin are more prone to rosacea, but it can affect anyone and typically starts at age 30. Rosacea starts as bumps or redness around the center of the face, and can be triggered by stress, spicy or hot foods and drinks, hard cheeses, red wine or alcohol that cause the blood vessels to become dilated. It can be progressive, so it’s important to go to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon sooner rather than later.” 112

WHAT HER DERMATOLOGIST SAYS “Rosacea can be embarrassing and frustrating because you do not know how your skin is going to look from one day to the next. I have patients that get very self-conscious and even feel depressed because they think their skin makes them look ugly. See a dermatologist and have your skin professionally treated because we have access to prescription tools that can really help. Educate yourself, learn what your triggers are and avoid them. There is no reason to be frustrated about your skin.”

NEWBEAUTY

SUMMER 2013

The product does not fully integrate into the tissue and gathers into a hard ball, either because the filler shifts, too much filler is injected, the wrong filler is injected into the wrong areas or the wrong injection technique is used. Oftentimes, the hardness is due to non-FDA-approved fillers, like silicone, being injected into the face. It’s important that the thickness of your skin is always taken into consideration; certain fillers work better according to the degree of skin thickness.

x

HOW TO AVOID IT Aside from using the right filler in the right areas, Fairfax, VA, plastic surgeon Victoria Suh, MD, says massaging it at the time of injection is important as it deposits the product properly, diminishing the risk of lumps and bumps. HOW TO REVERSE IT The type of filler and where it is used dictates whether the effects can be reversed or not. Free silicone has to be surgically excised; hyaluronic acid fillers can be “melted away” with hyaluronidase; longerlasting fillers must be broken up by using a needle under the skin, or surgically removed.

BAT BROW

WIND-TUNNEL FACE

PING-PONG FACE TROUT POUT PILLOW FACE

WHY IT HAPPENS Bat brow can be due to poor injection techniques—too much Botox, Dysport or Xeomin is injected into the forehead muscles—only the muscles that pull the brows up and/or just the muscles that pull down the central part of the brow are treated. Dr. Suh explains that the activeness of the brow muscle and whether a naturally high arch exists needs to be considered. “If so, the brows end up with a mountain peak because the muscles contradict each other. That’s why more than one area needs to be treated.”

THE TERMS

HOW TO AVOID IT Unless you are under the age of 35, both the muscles that pull the brows up and those that force the brows down need to be injected (a lower dose may be used). “If just the horizontal lines are addressed, you’ll have a forehead that’s as smooth as glass but brows that are heavy-looking,” says Los Angeles dermatologist Derek Jones, MD. “Treating the frown muscle between the eyebrows can lift the brows up and give a natural look. For this reason, this muscle should be treated to prevent heaviness of the brow.” HOW TO REVERSE IT Unless your doctor feels that he or she can balance out an overprojected arch with a small amount of Botox or Dysport above the brow, neurotoxins need to wear away on their own, which takes about three months or so. “Unfortunately there is no way to undo the effects of neurotoxins,” says Dr. Jones. “You have to wait it out.”

CAUSED BY Getting liposuction— when a tummy tuck is really needed

CAUSED BY

“ WINDTUNNEL FACE”

Outdated facelift techniques

HOW TO AVOID IT Your plastic surgeon needs to take a three-dimensional approach to rejuvenation and address both laxity and volume loss. Finding a good doctor who is well-versed in facial rejuvenation as a whole is key, too. HOW TO REVERSE IT “Sometimes the only way to correct this is to go in surgically and release the anchor points that were originally created,” says Dr. Suh. Should the anchor points need to be released, your plastic surgeon will probably need to redrape the underlying fat, tissue and muscle. “To correct this problem and create a natural appearance, more than one procedure may be needed,” says Dr. Hendricks. Fat or fillers can sometimes be used to reinstate volume that was never fully restored.

BEFORE

A lumpy, rippled, dimpled or saggy stomach that doesn’t match the rest of the body

A really tight, unnaturally pulled face that appears as if you are in a wind tunnel, because the skin is pulled backward

WHY IT HAPPENS While still seen today, but not as common as it once was, Dr. Azizzadeh explains that the wind-tunnel look occurs for two reasons: overzealous lifting that pulls the skin back rather than up and ignoring volume loss. “We used to lift and pull the skin back at a 30-degree angle but the face doesn’t naturally age like that so it can leave the jawline tight and the midface saggy,” says Newport Beach, CA, plastic surgeon Douglas Hendricks, MD.

x

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

AFTER

“TURKEY TUMMY” WHY IT HAPPENS When the stomach takes on a less than taut look post-procedure, it’s because of poor skin elasticity (usually the result of poor patient selection), which can be corrected by excising the loose skin. When surgery is done on this area, both the amount of fat in the abdomen and the skin quality need to be respected—if the skin is not elastic, it can’t “shrink” back into place. “The skin and muscle sit close together so if fat is removed too superficially, every irregularity is seen,” says Dr. Hendricks.

x

HOW TO AVOID IT Seek out a doctor who understands when a tummy tuck is needed versus liposuction, or both. “It’s about knowing how much fat to remove with the right technique so that the body is proportionate with enough fat for the skin to cling to,” says Dr. Hendricks. HOW TO REVERSE IT Undoing a rippled tummy can be difficult. “To smooth the area, we can reinject fat taken from another area to fill in the valley,” says Dr. Hendricks. “But no fat can be removed from the stomach. That will only make things worse.” According to La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, a mini- or full tummy tuck may correct laxity.

“RUNNER’S FACE” A facelift revision helped alleviate this patient’s tightlooking appearance for a more natural result. Procedure performed by Ramtin Kassir, MD; New York, NY.

The older we get, the harder it is to keep fat in the face and off the body. While running and cardiovascular exercise can do wonders to fight unwanted body fat, there is a trade-off: too much fat lost in the face can create a gaunt look. A lack of volume forces the skin to hang, giving way to a saggy appearance with pronounced bone structure. “An easy way to fix this is with Sculptra Aesthetic. It’s effective and long-lasting,” says Dr. Azizzadeh. “For a more significant fix, a facelift with volume replacement is needed,” adds Dr. Singer. MORE >

UNCOVERING FACT FROM FICTION

FINDING A GOOD DOCTOR

If you are considering or plan to undergo any type of cosmetic treatment, seek out a board-certified, well-qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist that has repeatedly performed the treatment you have opted for. “A physician’s level of experience and expertise are paramount to a successful outcome regardless of the procedure. What differentiates good doctors from the great ones is their artistic sense of beauty,” says Dr. Azizzadeh.

CAUSED BY Overdone lip augmentation with fillers, fat or implants

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

HOW TO AVOID IT According to Dr. Azizzadeh, “pillow face” is less about the type of filler used (fat can lead to bad results, too) but rather a poor understanding of facial aesthetics. “A youthful face is heart-shaped with the right amount of volume around the eyes and temple, and narrower near the lower part of the face,” he says. To prevent an overinflated look, the natural shape of your face needs to be maintained. HOW TO REVERSE IT

If hyaluronic acid is injected, it can be dissolved, but some doctors use collagen-stimulating and longer-lasting fillers that are not easily reversed; poor results need to be waited out or corrected with mini-liposuction. To correct overvolumization with fat, doctors dilute small amounts of steroids and inject them in the affected areas. “The steroid causes fat necrosis but the problem is that it’s hard to know how much fat will resorb and which areas will respond,” says Dr. Suh.

Explain to your doctor exactly how much fullness you’re looking for. “Also, especially with the lips, less is more when you’re starting out with enhancement,” says Dr. Suh. To ensure a natural look, both the white roll of the lips and the red line (where the dry part of the lips meets the wet part) should be injected.

HOW TO REVERSE IT If hyaluronic acid fillers were used, your doctor can reverse the effects by injecting hyaluronidase into the lips. But, if a more permanent filler was used, it most likely needs to be surgically removed. It is usually impossible to remove all of the permanent filler. Implants can be taken out and resized.

WHY IT HAPPENS Too much volume is placed

WHY IT HAPPENS “So many women are overdone in the lips and it creates a fake, obvious look,” says Dr. Jones. If too much filler is placed in the upper white lip (the area directly under the nose) the lips appear shelf-like. If too much filler is injected into the Cupid’s bow, it may become lost. “Scar tissue forms around the injection site which only augments volume and leads to swelling,” says Dr. Hendricks. Silicone or implants can lead to a similar, if not worse, effect and hard-looking lips.

Prevent and protect WHAT TO EXPECT Your biggest concern is probably breakouts, but now is the time

to focus on prevention in order to stave off the signs of aging. WHY IT HAPPENS Right now, your skin is still turning over skin cells at a decent rate,

allowing it to repair itself—a bonus for you! But, if you are battling blemishes, be kind to your complexion. Dehydrating, skin-stripping products can result in more breakouts. Moisture is still important at this age and sun protection is critical.

Recreate Jennifer’s look for your next fancy night out.

« Sultry sophistication Smoky shades will draw all the attention to your eyes, so aim to keep the rest of your face subtle, yet balanced. A sheer pink or sun-kissed bronze on your cheeks, and a sweet pink pigmented lip gloss with a high shine factor are the keys to pulling off this look with youthful sophistication and edge.

your small spots of hyperpigmentation may be more noticeable, but don’t despair—this is one age where your skin can probably handle more powerful ingredients that both repair and rejuvenate to achieve younger-looking skin. WHY IT HAPPENS Collagen is essential for younger-looking skin because it

gives structure to our skin cells. But as we age, the body produces less of it since naturally occurring enzymes break collagen down, in turn, causing the skin to thin, lose fullness and form wrinkles.

Downsides of the sun Repeat sun exposure can cause lifelong changes to the skin. Mount Kisco, NY, dermatologist David Bank, MD, explains that damaged skin cells can’t exfoliate properly and that, plus a loss of elastin and collagen, leads to sagging, wrinkles, spots and the potential for skin cancer. “The lower layers become affected because the cells mutate and produce sun-damaged cells,” he says. When skin is severely affected by sun damage, its ability to function is compromised. “The epidermis isn’t able to heal as quickly from small cuts and scratches because of collagen breakdown,” Dr. Bank explains. Wearing sunscreen daily is the best way to prevent sun damage.

Sun damage, otherwise known as photodamage, is the number-one offender for a less-than-perfect complexion. When the effects of the sun start to take hold, the skin can turn from soft, smooth and even in color, to spotted, rough and loose (due to of a loss of elasticity).

Hydroquinone may still be the gold standard for lightening, but new alternatives, like SkinMedica Lytera, are on the rise. “It uses proprietary ingredients and retinoic acid to erase sunspots.

Neurotoxins do not physically freeze muscles but rather weaken or relax them. “Because the muscles in our face are used so frequently, they are sort of on overload. The only way to tone down their activity is with neurotoxins,” explains Dr. Nguyen. “When muscles are relaxed, lines are minimized and softened, so the face doesn’t seem as harsh.” Those with good skin may benefit the most from using neurotoxins. “If your skin isn’t at its healthiest, wrinkles that are still visible (after being treated with a neurotoxin) may need to be filled in or treated with lasers,” says Sacramento, CA, dermatologist Jacqueline Calkin, MD.

Some patients use Botox as a generic term for every injectable and filler, but Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are not fillers nor do they work like them. “They treat lines caused by facial expressions.

ABOUT WHAT NEUROTOXINS ARE AND HOW THEY DIFFER FROM OTHER INJECTABLES.

TRUE Neurotoxins

can cause your eyelids to droop.

Whenever a neurotoxin is injected around the eye, there is the slight chance it will migrate into a muscle and cause the eyes to droop. Although it rarely happens in the hands of an experienced injector, it can occur when the product gets deep into the muscles that move the eyelids instead of sitting on the superficial muscles. The effect may worry you but the results won’t last long. “It wears off in a few weeks,” says Hunt Valley, MD, dermatologist Karen Beasley, MD.

aren’t permanent solutions.

The results of neurotoxins can last about three to four months and to stay line-free, you need to keep up with regular injections. Once the neurotoxin blocks the nerve receptors on the muscles, the body expels it a few days to a week afterward. So as soon as you start to see the effects, the product is out of your body. If your results only last a few weeks or one month at most, it may be that your injections are being diluted with too much saline. Also, those that work out a lot tend to need more Botox, more often. “The nerves reconnect to the muscles quicker in those that exercise a lot,” says West Palm Beach, FL, dermatologist Kenneth R. Beer, MD. If you’re not going to a board-certified expert injector or if you’re having your injections done by someone at a spa or at their home, there is a possibility you’re not even getting Botox. You should always ask to see what is being injected and make sure it’s a legitimate filler.

FALSE Having repeat

injections of neurotoxins will prevent you from ever making any facial expressions.

Treating the face with Botox, Dysport or Xeomin on a regular basis won’t prevent you from frowning, squinting or ever lifting your eyebrows again. It’s when the neurotoxin is placed incorrectly that you can have a harsh, overinjected look. “Regular injections of neurotoxins cause the muscle to get smaller and weaker over time, but I have never seen it cause permanent loss of movement,” says Dr. Beasley. “The muscle is constantly developing new receptor sites to replace those that have been blocked, so the muscle is able to contract again.” Good skin and a qualified injector is key to getting good results. The more damaged the skin is from the sun and aging, the fewer the number of wrinkles that can be eliminated—they may be softened but not fully erased. MORE >

WRINKLE PLUMPERS

WHEN INJECTABLE FILLERS FIRST MADE THEIR DEBUT, THEY WERE EXCLUSIVELY USED TO FILL IN FOLDS. “NOW, FILLERS ARE USED FOR MUCH MORE, LIKE REPLACING LOST VOLUME AND REPOSITIONING THE SKIN TO LIFT FOLDS,” SAYS DR. BEASLEY. FILLERS DO EXACTLY WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE THEY DO—THEY FILL IN GROOVES WITH ADDED VOLUME.

FALSE

A l l inj e c t a b le s a re t h e sa m e .

Despite the fact that all hyaluronic acid fillers work similarly (they do vary in thickness), injectables are not all one in the same. Some patients still think Botox is a filler, and when they go to their doctor asking for Botox in their cheeks or lips, they don’t realize that they actually need fillers. If a filler is used on an area that only responds to a neurotoxin, adverse effects can happen (and vice versa if a neurotoxin is used instead of a filler). Neurotoxins smooth out wrinkles, whereas fillers fill in lines and wrinkles and add volume.

FALSE You can n e ve r

look “don e ” w ith f ille r s b e cause the y ar e n ’t sur ge r y.

There’s a major misconception that whenever someone looks “doughy,” too augmented or just unnatural it’s always the result of bad surgery. But bad fillers can cause an overdone look too. “If you get overinjected and either too much product or the wrong product is used, especially if it’s placed into the wrong areas or with poor technique, the face looks unbalanced. You can tell there’s something wrong, but sometimes it just can’t be pinpointed,” says Dr. Nguyen. Of course bad surgery can be to blame, too. “To get that natural look you need to address what’s happening naturally with aging. Patients in their 30s and 40s may only need injectables, but when you get into your late 40s and beyond, you need a combination of conservative surgery, to lift what’s fallen, and fillers, for maintenance and to stimulate collagen that’s been lost.”

Injectables can cause bruising because whenever a needle is placed under the skin, blood vessels can break, which can lead to bruises. Bruises can be treated with a pulsed-dye laser.

FOR GOOD?

You may see discounts advertised for injectables, but you always get what you pay for. To make sure you’re getting a safe, FDA-approved substance, ask your doctor to show you what is being injected. “With Botox, saline needs to be added to it and while there are guidelines, some doctors may water down the product. When this happens the patient won’t get results that last as long. You may see some savings but you’re not getting the full amount of product either,” says Dr. Beer. “The same is true of filler. A doctor can say they’re using one thing and switch it out unknowingly for something cheaper.”

A RTISTRY IS KEY

TO A “LIQUID LIFT” A “Liquid Lift” uses a combination of fillers and injectables to add volume, create definition and erase some signs of aging. “You can’t just fill some areas and be done. Your doctor needs to massage the area and sculpt the product to contour it so the filler looks natural and smooth,” says Dr. Nguyen. A variety of fillers and injectables can to be used to mimic the face’s natural contours. “They can be layered for a beautiful look,” says Dr. Calkin. La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, adds, “Over time, ‘Liquid Lifts’ may not be as cost effective or produce as good of a result as a well-performed facelift.”

TRUE

Fillers can be reversed.

If you have a reaction, ill effect or just don’t like the results of your filler, your doctor can inject the treated area with hyaluronidase, which works to counteract the effects of the filling agent. “That’s why a lot of doctors like to use hyaluronic acid fillers—they have a thin consistency, can be molded and have a forgiving element,” says Dr. Beasley.

Collagen stimulators may provide some initial filling effect due to the fluid that surrounds the microscopic particles in the product (these prompt collagen to be made). “During the first 24 hours after injections, the fluid gets absorbed and the fullness that you initially see may start to dissipate,” explains Dr. Calkin. But once the fullness is gone, it doesn’t mean it won’t ever resurface—it takes time to stimulate new collagen for the full effects to show in the face, which can take a few months and a few treatment sessions.

Though hyaluronic acid fillers weren’t formulated to do so, science has proven they can create collagen. But many doctors agree that the amount of collagen made is not as much as you can expect from products that are specifically formulated to create collagen. “Restylane, Perlane and Juvéderm have the potential to stimulate natural collagen,” says Dr. Nguyen. The function of collagen-stimulating fillers is to create collagen. Hyaluronic acid fillers add fullness. “With a hyaluronic acid filler, the collagen effect is modest when compared to a collagen stimulator,” says Dr. Calkin.

There is still a large percentage of women who are afraid to treat their lips with injectables because they fear that their lips will come out looking too big and overdone. As Dr. Calkin explains, overinflated lips are often the result of poor injection techniques. “You can get great results with fillers in the lips. Both the upper and bottom lips need to be treated and in a conservative manner, so that you don’t end up with that ‘duck lip’ look.”

WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE

WORLD OF INJECTABLES

NEW PRODUCTS ARE CONSTANTLY BEING DEVELOPED, TESTED AND BROUGHT TO

MARKET. HERE ARE THE LATEST OFFERINGS AND WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE SOON.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Fillers and injectables may seem to be available almost anywhere, but that doesn’t mean you should go just anywhere to get them. These are cosmetic procedures that need to be performed by a welltrained, educated, medical doctor, like a or plastic surgeon or dermatologist, who specializes in facial anatomy and the effects of aging. “I don’t recommend having them done by a doctor who isn’t familiar with facial anatomy or by anyone at a salon, spa or someone’s house,” says Dr. Beer.

GET IT NOW XEOMIN

Xeomin works toward the same goal as Botox and Dysport— blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles—but the difference is in how it is manufactured. New York dermatologist Jennifer MacGregor, MD, explains that Xeomin is void of complex proteins. “Some people make antibodies to the proteins in other neurotoxins. If you’re resistant to the proteins and don’t see much of a benefit, Xeomin may be an option.” It also doesn’t need to be refrigerated like other neurotoxins do.

BELOTERO The latest FDAapproved hyaluronic acid filler to come to market, this one differs from others in that it is more lightweight. Its smoother consistency allows for it to fill in smaller, more superficial lines, like those around the mouth, and thinner-skinned areas such as under the eyes—it won’t give the skin a bluish tint that many other fillers can. It can be used to correct and fill nasolabial folds, too. But, because it is less cross-linked (lightweight), it may not last as long. 142

NEWBEAUTY

SUMMER 2013

COMING SOON JUVÉDERM VOLUMA

The thickest hyaluronic acid to date, Dr. Beer explains that Juvéderm Voluma is a short-chain filler that’s highly crosslinked so the hyaluronic acid molecules stick together and last longer. “It allows you to literally pick the face up,” he says. While not a line filler, it’s anticipated to be used on the chin, cheekbones, temples and nose to correct volume loss.

DRY HYALURONIC ACID

A completely different type of application, this filler sits on a string and is threaded under the skin to hydrate and swell the area. “Basically, the filler is inserted under the skin and either pulled or pushed the length of the nasolabial crease in a manner similar to how doctors used to put in Gortex,” says Dr. Beer. “It attracts and absorbs water to fill in the area and add volume. But I’m not sure if this method is any better than injecting hyaluronic acid with a needle.” NB

Is your redness rosacea? Broken capillaries can be caused by a variety of factors, like genetics, sun damage or in areas of injury like a scar, but they are also a common effect of rosacea. Hunt Valley, MD, dermatologist Karen Beasley, MD, explains that those with rosacea flush very easily, and, over time, that periodic flushing can cause a “persistent pinkness” in the skin, allowing for broken blood vessels to form. “In my opinion, there is no effective at-home treatment that clears facial veins, but a daily broadspectrum SPF 30 sunscreen can help prevent those that form from sun damage,” she says.

Like with most in-office treatments, the protocol for treating broken blood vessels on the face is not a one-size-fits-all solution. “When isolated vessels occur, they may be treated with the Veinwave via a very fine needle to destroy the vessel without harming the skin,” says Scottsdale, AZ, facial plastic surgeon Kelly V. Bomer, MD, who adds this procedure usually requires two treatments. “For diffuse redness with indistinct vessels, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is effective. When coupled with significant sun damage, Photodynamic therapy (PDT) with Levulan is best.” While there is peeling and downtime associated with this treatment, it can reduce both red vessels and the chance for skin cancer, while also rejuvenating the skin overall.

WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU HAVE SURGERY

Just because you’re opting to undergo surgery doesn’t mean you’ll look like you’re 20 years old again. “The goal is to make the face look refreshed and younger, and fix any laxity,” says Dallas plastic surgeon Fritz E. Barton, Jr., MD. Keep in mind that a facelift can’t always eliminate every line and wrinkle.

While techniques have improved over the years, a facelift still leaves scars. New York facial plastic surgeon Andrew A. Jacono, MD, says, “The incisions are hidden in the sideburn of the hair, running inside the ear canal and behind the earlobe without running into the scalp.” In most patients, scars improve over time and blend in.

can take anywhere from 10 days to a couple of weeks before you are ready to resume normal activities for the first time, and upward of a few months for all of the swelling to fully go down.

plastic surgeon should explain to you what concerns can be addressed with a facelift alone. Orlando, FL, plastic surgeon Armando Soto, MD, says the surgery will restore a youthful shape to your face but it will not improve the look of brown spots, fine lines or the position or shape of your eyelids and eyebrows.

YOUR EXPECTATIONS NEED TO BE REALISTIC.

YOU WILL HAVE SCARS.

THERE IS SOME DOWNTIME. It

do you need a

facelift? THERE MAY COME A POINT WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND ASK YOURSELF, “IS IT TIME FOR A FACELIFT?” FACIAL AGING IS INEVITABLE, BUT WHEN THE CHANGES THAT YOU SEE START TO BOTHER YOU—THINK SAGGING SKIN, LOOSENESS IN YOUR NECK AND A POORLY DEFINED JAWLINE—YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER A FACELIFT, THE ONLY OPTION THAT WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH LONG-LASTING IMPROVEMENT.

HOW THE

shape of your face AFFECTS AGING

IF YOUR FACE IS OVAL… hollowing in the temples and cheeks is common because of extra fat in the cheeks, which dissipates over time. Fillers and/or fat fill out hollowing; a mid-facelift helps with sagging.

148

NEWBEAUTY

SUMMER 2013

IF YOUR FACE IS ROUND… the cheeks and lower face may sag. A lower facelift, which targets the lower part of the face, is the best option. The cheeks can be resculpted by injecting fat and/or fillers.

IF YOUR FACE IS RECTANGULAR OR SQUARE… loose skin and sagging jowls on the lower part of the face tend to be the biggest problems. A traditional facelift is likely the most effective solution as it addresses jowling and lax skin.

IF YOUR FACE IS HEARTSHAPED… the forehead and upper eyes are most affected. “Heart-shaped faces often have high cheekbones and tend to age slower than square faces with flat cheekbones,” explains Dr. Jacono. “The skeletal structure supports the face for less drooping.”

SHOULD YOU HAVE SURGERY AT AN EARLY AGE? La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, says there is a trend with younger patients undergoing facelifts, and data shows that having surgery in your 40s or early 50s leads to better, longer-lasting results. “It allows patients to reap the benefit of looking fresher and younger from the improvement of surgery now rather than when they have aged greater later on in life.” Opting for a facelift at a younger age doesn’t mean you can forgo all other anti-aging measures. “There is still a place for fillers and injectables for these patients. Maintenance and good skin care are important, too,” says Dr. Singer. MORE > SUMMER 2013

a saggy jawline

bone changes

wrinkly skin A myriad of factors cause the skin to age—the sun, pollution and free-radical damage—forcing the breakdown of collagen and elastin. When this happens, skin looks saggy. Wrinkles, folds and lines also develop—partially caused by a breakdown in the quality of the skin and partially due to excessive movement. A facelift can address sagging skin, but small wrinkles and lines respond better to fillers, injectables and good skin care.

The jawbone loses density with time and there’s less of a structure for the skin to hang on to, which is why it starts to sag. The same thing happens to the chin. The jawline is corrected by excising any loose skin and then tightening what remains. “Once sagging skin gets to a certain point it can only be fixed surgically,” says Scottsdale, AZ, facial plastic surgeon David A. Hecht, MD.

Similar to how fat is lost in the face, with time the density of the bones in the face slowly reabsorb. The eyes may appear sunken, the jawline less defined and the cheeks flatter, because of thinning bones.

sunken eyes As fat under the eyes starts to descend and there is a loss of volume between the under-eye area and cheeks, there is less support and more of a sunken look. This is often addressed via blepharoplasty at the time of a facelift. The depression under the lower eyelid, often referred to as a tear trough, can be softened with a blepharoplasty or by adding micro amounts of fat grafts or fillers.

loss of volume Fat is essential for a youthful-looking face. When there is a loss of fat, the face begins to droop. The more fat that is lost, the more pronounced folds and lines are. “When the cheeks droop, the cheekbones tend to look less full,” says Dr. Jacono. To restore volume, fat, fillers, injectables or a combination can be used—fat is grafted during a facelift and injectables are done before or after surgery.

SLOW THE RATE OF AGING ONE We are genetically programmed to age at a certain rate, but taking care of your skin and body may help delay aging. As most plastic surgeons and facial plastic surgeons will agree, you can potentially slow down how quickly your face ages by following these simple rules.

KEEP YOUR SKIN WELL HYDRATED. Hydration is essential, especially when it comes to warding off fine lines and wrinkles. The drier skin looks, the more obvious wrinkles are. The better-hydrated skin is, the plumper and less aged it will appear. O N E

PICK SURGERY IF... YOU WANT LONG-TERM RESULTS. Unlike other age-reversing treatments like lasers and injectables (which do not address slack skin), the results of a facelift are long-lasting. There is always the potential for a secondary procedure because the face will continue to age.

THERE IS LOOSE SKIN. Loose skin at the jawline and on the neck creates the look of a double chin or a “turkey waddle.” Microliposuction can tackle fatty areas but any laxity needs to be surgically excised.

THERE ARE LINES AND FOLDS. Even when you’re not making facial expressions, if there are lines and folds that cause your skin to appear as if it is hanging, you probably need surgery. Fillers can plump up lines and folds but they can’t do that much for lax skin.

YOU IMAGINE HOW YOU WOULD LOOK WITH A FACELIFT. Do you pull your skin back to see how it would look tighter? A facelift is the only way to re-elevate your face.

you need volume replacement, either with fat or fillers

you need a browlift

when fat is good Sometimes a facelift is not all that’s needed to reverse the signs of aging. Fat grafting may be necessary to restore any lost fullness. “It’s common to perform fat grafting at the time of a facelift. Volume loss is an inherent part of the aging face,” says Dr. Singer. Areas like the lips, cheeks and upper and lower eyelids that have lost fat can be restored volumetrically as small amounts of fat (taken from another part of the body, like the stomach, thighs or hips) are extracted, spun down (to remove material other than the fat cells), cleaned and reinjected where they integrate into the living tissue. “If the transferred fat survives, then the results can be permanent, unlike fillers, which are temporary,” says Dr. Barton. Performing a facelift and neglecting to revolumize areas that have been affected by fat loss can make the face look deflated.

what type of facelift is

best for you? WHAT YOUR ISSUES ARE DICTATES WHAT TECHNIQUE YOU ARE BEST SUITED FOR. TODAY’S FACELIFTS ARE ALL ABOUT CUSTOMIZATION AND INDIVIDUALIZATION. “NO TWO PATIENTS ARE ALIKE. GOOD RESULTS COME DOWN TO YOUR PLASTIC SURGEON TAILORING THE PROCEDURE TO ADDRESS YOUR SPECIFIC CONCERNS AND NOT TRYING TO FIT YOUR NEEDS INTO A COOKIE CUTTER,” SAYS DR. SINGER. A limited-incision facelift, upper and lower blepharoplasty and lip augmentation created a more youthful look. Procedure performed by Phillip J. Chang, MD; Landsdowne, VA.

facelift basics Originally designed to address sagging skin simply by removing any excess, a facelift is an invasive surgical procedure in which extra skin is excised from the lower part of the face and the neck and pulled back to tighten what’s become loose. “At one point facelifts were all about lifting and pulling the skin, but then we started to realize the soft tissue under the skin (that gives shape to the face) needed to be addressed as well because it hollows and loses volume or descends,” says Dr. Barton. The facelifts performed today address the underlying tissue and muscle structure in addition to any excess outer skin. “For a fully rejuvenated look, the underlying tissue needs to be elevated, any excess skin should be removed and volume needs to be replaced,” says Dr. Singer. “These days, it’s not so much about pulling the skin so tight as it is repositioning everything back.” Even though a facelift sounds like it’s addressing the face as a whole, Dr. Hecht says it really focuses just on the lower face, jawline and neck. “The midface area is often corrected too, but we do that more with fillers or fat.”

Stubborn stomach fat can seem almost impossible to eliminate, and, you may have your genes to thank for that. “Many women, as well as men, have a genetic predisposition to retaining fat around the middle, which is known as the ‘apple body type,’ as opposed to the ‘pear body,’” explains Mountlake Terrace, WA, plastic surgeon Richard Baxter, MD. “External fat that is localized to a specific region often does not respond to diet and exercise, which is why an in-office option, like Liposonix, which uses focused ultrasound for precise destruction of fat cells, or Zeltiq, can help eliminate this type of fat.” While they can help improve the area, they are not a replacement for liposuction.

Its new Pure Light Slim treatment, a body-contouring technique that purportedly shrinks fat cells and releases fatty acids through LED lights that stimulate the lymph system, is proving popular for those looking to slim, shape and tone specific areas. Not convinced? Pure Flow claims that just 20 minutes of the treatment recreates the “fat-burning” stage of a good cardiovascular workout—while you sit there. “In general, treatments that require multiple sessions produce temporary effects, if any,” says Dr. Baxter. “This covers a wide range of technologies, including LED light.” Bottom line: It may be worth a try, but pair it with one of the studio’s high-tech passive cardiovascular treatments. pureflowfitness.com

GUMMY BEAR IMPLANTS ARE FINALLY HERE! Gummy Bear implants received FDA approval for use in the U.S., giving women yet another implant option. Made from a more cohesive, formstable gel that can’t shift within the shell, Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon Steve Teitelbaum, MD, says, “There is reduced rippling, enhanced control over shape and improved longevity.” Form-stable implants only come in an anatomic or tear-drop shape. They require a longer incision and are more costly, but, Dr. Teitelbaum says, “For someone who wants natural and proportional breasts, this is a great way to get them.”

BIGGER IS BETTER American women have a penchant for enlarging their breasts. New York plastic surgeon Elie Levine, MD, says this is one body concern (a desire for fuller breasts) many women have had since they were teenagers. “With the availability of various implants, we can customize the procedure to meet each patient’s individual needs,” says Huntersville, NC, plastic surgeon Bill G. Kortesis, MD. Younger patients tend to want a boost in size while older patients, and those who have gone through pregnancy, desire the fullness that they once had.

HOW TO GET BIGGER Breast augmentation with implants is considered the standard for changing the size and shape of the breasts. Most women want breasts that are medium in size and look natural. “Patients are veering away from the DD look. There is still a tendency to go big (just not as big),” says Chicago plastic surgeon Julius W. Few, MD.

THE BEST BUTT FOR JEANS Borrowing from the Brazilian trend of a perfectly proportioned backside with curves in all the right places, American women are looking toward butt augmentation procedures more than ever before. “Buttocks aesthetics have been highly prized in Central and South America for many years, but more recently have been sought out in the U.S.,” says Huntersville, NC, plastic surgeon Joseph P. Hunstad, MD. “Just in the last year we’ve seen an increase in butt augmentation with fat by almost 60 percent,” adds Dr. Kortesis. No matter the mode of augmentation, the overall goal is the same: to create a feminine silhouette with perfect curves and next to no cellulite.

Fat on the body is looked at as enemy number-one. One reason why Americans struggle with their weight is due in part to large-sized portions and not eating enough healthy foods. “Women have a genetic predisposition to deposit fat on the abdomen and thighs,” says Dr. Hunstad. “These are two popular areas to treat with liposuction because frequently there can be more fullness in the lower body as compared to the upper body.” Besides the stomach and thighs, the hip area and waistline are also commonly complained about as areas of stubborn fat.

HOW TO ELIMINATE FAT Women want defined curves, which is why liposuction and noninvasive fat fighters are in high demand. “They contour problem areas but are not weight-loss tools,” says Dr. Levine. Fat fighters, like liposuction, are most frequently used to target the lower abdomen, inner knee, inner thigh, back of the butt and the bra roll area. Other noninvasive fat fighters include CoolSculpting and Liposonix, which permanently remove fat without surgery. While these treatments may offer some benefit, they are not a replacement for liposuction.

THE STEM CELLS CRAZE Fat-derived stem cells are starting to be big in Europe. “Europeans are all about using stem cells extracted from fat to try and reverse aging,” says Dr. Few. “They’re using them along with other additives to augment the breasts.” The use of stem cells in plastic surgery isn’t as regulated as it is in America, although some doctors stateside are following suit. “There is no aesthetic stem cell procedure that is FDA approved or yet proven to have any benefit over standard fat injection,” says La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD.

European women, especially the French, are obsessed with ridding their bodies of cellulite. With everything from creams and lotions to popular cellulite-reducing shorts and other treatments, a lot of attention is focused on smooth skin on the thighs and butt. In fact, many of the cellulite fighters that have had some success in America (think Endermologie and Ionithermie) originated in Europe.

GET SMOOTH SKIN Professional manual cellulite massage, which is said to soften fat, expel toxins and break up fatty deposits, helps make dimples less visible.

THE

BREASTS THAT AREN’T TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL In some parts of the world bigger may be better, but the opposite is true on the other side of the pond. Women with breasts that are bigger than a small C look to reduction surgeries to prevent a top-heavy look. “Natural-looking, medium-sized breasts are the norm in Europe. It’s a cultural difference that they just prefer,” says Dr. Few.

GET THE RIGHT SIZE Macrolane (a type of hyaluronic acid filler) injections can augment breasts by one cup size, but the results are not longlasting and there have been complications. Another reason Europeans don’t go that large has to do with the types of implants used. “Anatomical and form-stable implants are popular in Europe and there is a limit on how big the implant can be,” says Dr. Levine. “With these implants, only so much volume can be achieved. Otherwise, complications can arise. That’s part of the reason why augmentations are more conservative.”

MOST OBSESSED W ITH

SUPERSKINNY LEGS A long-standing trend in Asian cultures is the desire for slim, bulk-free calves. Often referred to as radish legs or radish calves because of the natural thickness in the muscle that looks similar to the vegetable, a long and slim calf that’s void of heavy-looking muscles is highly desired by Asian women. It’s thought that a short, stocky calf equates to a short height, which is believed to be a common cause of discrimination in the workplace.

HOW TO GET SLIMMER LEGS The bulk of the muscle is reduced by surgery (the nerves that control the muscles are severed), or by injecting the muscle with off-label use of Botox, both which cause the size of the muscle to shrink.

The use of fat to augment the body may have been pioneered in America but it has tremendous popularity in Asia, especially in Singapore and Tokyo. It is said that some Asian women only tend to want a miniscule increase in size, so fat and injections are often the treatments of choice.

HOW TO GET THE LOOK Fat only allows an increase by about one cup size and doesn’t lend itself to any signs that the breasts have been enhanced. “Macrolane is still being used and it’s most popular in Japan because the Asian culture as a whole frowns on large breasts—they think they are tasteless,” says Dr. Few. “This allows women to achieve a large A or small B and go up just one cup size at most.” Adds Dr. Singer, “However, there have been numerous reports of Macrolane complications.”

WHEN IT COMES TO BEAUTY, ASIAN WOMEN REMAIN TRUE TO WHAT THEIR SOCIETY DEEMS ACCEPTABLE IN TERMS OF SIZE AND

IMPLANTS FOR RECONSTRUCTION Japanese women can expect to see a major advancement in breast implants for reconstruction purposes. The use of implants to reconstruct the breasts after cancer has never been officially approved in Japan and many Japanese doctors have had to import them in. But all that is about to change as tissue expanders and cohesive silicone gel implants are expected to be more readily available for these patients. Anatomical implants are anticipated. But there is a downside: many experts believe a large number of Japanese plastic surgeons are not skilled in performing surgery with implants for reconstruction and are concerned about the potential for complications.

WHERE THE “BIG BUTT” TREND BEGAN A NEW SURGERY TECHNIQUE Could the next wave of surgical techniques include performing a procedure, such as a tummy tuck, sans the use of drains? Dr. Few says yes. “In South America, specifically Brazil, there is a big emphasis on not using drains following surgery and it’s making its way into operating rooms in the U.S.” When Brazilian plastic surgeons perform a tummy tuck, they often sew the skin back down to the muscle tight enough, prohibiting the incidence of fluid buildup. “This allows better mobility for the patient, so there may be less of a risk of infection.”

The Brazilian Butt Lift caught on stateside and made a bigger, more shapely butt more acceptable, but in Brazil, a larger backend has been en vogue for years. A large percentage of Brazilian women are naturally blessed (many Brazilians are of African descent) with a good rear, which may explain why the skimpy bathing suit is so commonplace.

Full, perky breasts and a perfectly round butt

HOW TO GET A GREAT BUTT Brazilian women focus on getting a body that’s defined with intense workouts and healthy eating. Butt implants and fat augmentation round out the equation.

FULL BREASTS Brazilian women love the look of a curvy body and a breast augmentation with large implants is the easiest way to get that look. In terms of getting the right degree of lift, many Brazilian plastic surgeons are using mesh for lifting procedures. “It gives support and lift to minimize the potential for the breasts to eventually fall back down to more of a saggy position,” explains Dr. Few. The other benefit to using mesh for a lift is that it leaves behind a far smaller scar than more traditional techniques—always a plus.

TRAVELING SOUTH FOR PLASTIC SURGERY Some Americans travel to South America for cosmetic surgery. Surgical complications can happen anywhere and the same risks apply no matter where you have your surgery. “You have to think about the gamble and risk,” says Dr. Levine. “It’s hard to navigate the education, expertise and reputation of an international doctor and know what you’re going to get. If you don’t have these answers, then you are taking a gamble.”

DID YOU KNOW? Besides having fullness in the breasts and buttocks, Latin women may also like a larger hip area, too. “They rarely want liposuction on the saddlebag and hip area,” says Dr. Tehrani. “It is considered aesthetically pleasing to have fullness in that area.”

MULTISTEP PROCESS The ritual is rather simple, but it does involve several steps (all aimed at cleansing and relaxing), and requires the guest to transition into several different rooms during the treatment. In the U.S., there are many hammam-inspired treatments and spas that give a nod to the tradition, albeit most of these rituals are done in private treatment rooms with some adjustments.

The hammam, also known as the Turkish hamam or Turkish bath, is the Middle Eastern variant of a steam bath. Although the first hammams originated in Arabia and bath culture was a central part of Roman life, Turkey popularized the tradition and is responsible for making them a “trend” by introducing them to the rest of Europe.

AT THE CORE With ith roots in Japan, hara is a lesser-known massage technique that focuses on the abdomen and pelvis region and the body’s energy overall. Warning: Some people find it a bit ticklish, although this usually subsides as they become more comfortable.

CENTURIES OF BENEFITS Like most energy work, hara has deep roots and most cultures have some variation of it (although it is most commonly associated with Traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine and often tied in to shiatsu). Besides being linked to energy flow, it is also thought to help alleviate digestive disorders and eliminate toxins.

FOCUSING ON THE STOMACH REGION (THE WORD MEANS “BELLY” IN JAPANESE), HARA, AT ITS VERY BASIC, IS A MASSAGE OF THE ABDOMEN.

But this tranquil pocket in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, is so serious about spa that it just launched The Bungalows at Terranea, a collection of lodging and experiences that provide a personalized well-being itinerary. Director of spa Blake Feeney explains, “Each experience gives you everything you need to seek escape from stress.” Besides relaxing, the only thing you might have to think twice about is what treatment to get. Try the two-hour Flickering Embers, which centers on a fireside Hara massage. terranea.com

IN-OFFICE WHITENING DID YOU KNOW? As you age, the nerves in your teeth become smaller, which can compromise sensitivity to cavities or other dental problems. Regular exams are crucial to prevent any oral health issues from getting worse.

With in-office whitening procedures, a laser or light source is used to intensify a bleaching agent, which is applied to the teeth. New York cosmetic dentist Irwin Smigel, DDS, says, “This is the quickest way to see dramatic results because professional whitening treatments can be performed in one office visit in as little as one hour using formulations and equipment that aren’t available at-home.”

WHAT TO STAY AWAY FROM Staten Island, NY, cosmetic dentist Louis F. DeSantis, DDS, says, “Don’t eat or drink anything you wouldn’t want to spill on your favorite white pants for the first 24 hours. The material is still working within the crystals of the enamel.” Avoiding extremely hot or cold foods can minimize discomfort from sensitivity, which can last about a week.

tip

After a whitening procedure you may experience heightened sensitivity for up to a week. Dr. DeSantis recommends brushing with desensitizing toothpaste for about a week beforehand to minimize this post-treatment symptom.

LONG-TERM RESULTS “After remineralization takes place, which takes about a week, patients can resume normal activity like drinking coffee,” says Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald E. Goldstein, DDS. Using a whitening toothpaste at home will also help you maintain the results. And Palm Desert, CA, cosmetic dentist René Dell’Acqua, DDS, recommends touch-ups. “This keeps stains from building up again. One five- to 30-minute touch-up treatment per month is all that is needed,” she says.

A popular orthodontic treatment, Invisalign uses a series of custommade removable aligners that straighten teeth without metal or wires over a period of time. Other choices are American Orthodontics’ cosmetic self-ligating braces, which consist of clear brackets and a clip to hold the wire, and lingual braces, which are fitted to the backs of teeth.

Dr. Goldstein advises, “Never leave your aligners even for a minute where pets can get to them since dogs love to chew them up. This also applies to retainers.” If you do lose your aligners or retainer, see your dentist right away to avoid undoing any progress you may have already made toward a straighter smile.

LONG-TERM RESULTS “After a year or so, patients can experiment with taking the retainer out for a period of 24 hours. If it refits easily, they may try two days, but if it is tighter, then that means there is some muscle pull on the teeth to return them to a crowded position and therefore they can only take the retainer out for a limited amount of time,” says Dr. Goldstein.

CLEAN TEETH ARE KEY “The parts of the tooth that aren’t covered by the veneer are susceptible to decay, so regular cleanings and brushing properly are key,” says Dr. Dell’Acqua, who also recommends patients wear night guards to protect against clenching and grinding. Break any habits like chewing on pencils or any other hard objects to prevent veneers from becoming chipped or cracked, which will require a procedure to replace the affected veneer.

This patient’s smile makeover included teeth whitening and veneers. Procedures performed by Ira Handschuh, DDS; White Plains, NY.

HOW TO MAINTAIN Aside from regular brushing and flossing, no special care is needed following a bonding procedure. But, Dr. Goldstein does advise using a soft brush or soft rotary electric brush to minimize risk of damaging the bonding material. And keep in mind, bonding is a restorative procedure so if you weren’t meticulous in your oral care habits before, you’ll need to be now in order to maintain the results.

04 Dr. Smigel says, “Veneers are an excellent way to improve teeth that are discolored, crooked or have gaps between them, and can even reshape a person’s face.” A thin layer of enamel is removed from the surface of the tooth to make room for the ultrathin veneer, which is bonded in place.

FIGHT BACTERIA Dr. Smigel says, “To maintain the health of the gums after a permanent implant and preserve the implant for the long-term, patients should brush and floss regularly to prevent bacteria from growing.” Dr. Goldstein adds, “Smoking is a definite no-no for patients with dental implants.”

BOTH BENEFITS WORTH INVESTING IN. SO, EVEN IF YOUR SMILE TRANSFORMATION INCLUDED A PROCEDURE THAT TOUTS PERMANENT RESULTS, MAINTENANCE IS STILL ESSENTIAL TO THE LONGEVITY OF A HEALTHY SMILE. GENTLE BRUSHING The most important issue is tenderness of the gums. Dr. Dell’Acqua says, “Brush softly and carefully for a few days following a gum recontouring procedure and swish with an antiseptic rinse twice a day.”

Celebrities know that a healthy, bright smile is just as important as flawless hair and makeup. Cat Deeley, host of Fox reality show So You Think You Can Dance, says, “In this business, you’re always under a microscope and so much emphasis is placed on looks. Yellow teeth are the last thing I want! Having a white smile gives me the confidence to be in the spotlight and smile through anything.”

STIMULATE THE GUMS Dr. Smigel says, “Following a crown procedure, patients should brush to stimulate the gums so that they don’t recede. The toothbrush should be held at a 45-degree angle where the teeth meet the gums.”
