Power

the

of perception

LIKE IT OR NOT, WE ARE JUDGED BY HOW WE LOOK. We live in a culture where we create impressions about others based solely on their appearance. We make judgments. We develop perceptions.

Turns out, research says it’s quite a lot, and it may be seeping into your life more than you realize. According to studies, “looking good” is a quality that receives preferential treatment in our society. Dubbed the “attractiveness halo,” people with more appealing faces are judged more positively and perceived to have more pleasing traits, such as more outgoing, socially competent and powerful, sexually responsive, intelligent, and healthy. That’s the best part of getting a makeover. Just a simple change and you can feel different instantly.

S O LV E A L L YO U R B E A U T Y P R O B L E M S !

The new TestTube is finally here! From glowing skin to perfect hair, these 10 must-try products deliver results.

Not convinced? Think about how great you feel when you have a good hair day, or how much you want to hide out when you don’t. How you look has the ability to boost your confidence and up your energy levels. Perhaps the most powerful factor is the capability it has to change how we project ourselves to the outside world and the message we want to send. Transformation may happen on the outside, but there is no denying the profound effect it has on how we feel on the inside. So enjoy our Makeover Issue, filled with unbelievable beforeand-afters and easy-to-achieve solutions that will have you looking and feeling better fast!

FROM A NEW WAY TO CARE FOR YOUR CHEST TO AN OILY SKIN BREAKTHROUGH, HERE’S WHAT’S COOL IN THE WORLD OF BEAUTY.

NAIL ART GOES DIGITAL Although I tend to stick with the basics when it comes to my nails, I’m intrigued by the attention to detail that goes into nail art. But, for as mind-blowing as some of these mini works of art are, you’ve got to have a lot of time on your hands because it can take hours for the entire design to be created. Because time is of the essence, a new nail printer, INAIL, makes the process of nail art short and sweet. It prints out customizable designs for both natural nails and tips in about eight seconds, which takes the time factor out of the equation. There’s a computer screen that lets you choose from thousands of designs—you can also import your own—and then delivers the design straight onto your nail with gel polish, allowing you to get your nails done in record time.

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner, $55, sephora.com For years, I’ve skipped over toners. They’re either too drying, too sticky or just an extra step in my routine.

It feels cool on contact and doesn’t leave behind any residue—just skin that feels nice and clean. 2 0 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

The décolleté is one of those areas that we can easily forget to take care of. These wipes make it easy to keep it clean. Swipe one of the glycolicand lactic acid–infused pads across your chest at night for a light exfoliating effect (without dryness) and a healthy glow.

It’s important to clean your makeup brushes on the regular. While soap and water will do, I like to wash with a formula made specifically for brushes so the bristles don’t get damaged. This one uses coconut and palm oils to get every last drop of stubborn makeup out of my brushes without any oily residue.

It’s a known fact that there’s an association between oily skin and acne. When too much oil (sebum) is produced, it can clog your pores and be a key player in the formation of a pimple. For years, we’ve relied on the same ingredients—retinol, benzyol peroxide, sulfur and salicylic acid—to treat acneic skin. But a new molecule, DRM01, may be the clear-skin holy grail for those who suffer from oil-induced acne. Formulated to treat an enzyme structure that plays a role in the creation of fatty acids, which are components of sebum, DRM01 is thought to be able to reduce oil production in the sebaceous glands, in turn leading to less oil production and fewer breakouts. While it’s still in clinical trials and has yet to receive FDA-approval, this new molecule, which is expected to be available in topical form, could finally put a stop to excessively oily skin that leads to breakouts.

Winter skin seems to be synonymous with woe-worthy skin; that time of year when nothing is copacetic between your normal skin care and your complexion. When it’s time to reset, reach for one of these three new options.

WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO APPROACH FOR A QUICK YET NOTICEABLE MAKEOVER?

@SingerSurgical

THE MAKEOVER MANTRA

Everyone has aspects of their appearance they would like to alter. Whether you’ve been considering a change for years or it just entered your radar, understanding the many factors involved in reaching that decision is critical, and it’s not to be taken lightly.

Q

Makeovers, both on the big screen and in a personal realm, have always been intriguing because of their ability to completely alter the way you look, feel and live. And although these changes can considerably improve your quality of life, there are critical guidelines to follow before making such a serious decision. The first step is deciding whether or not you want to undergo a makeover—here’s what to ask yourself next. Are your motivations appropriate? Whether the transformation involves your face or body, the reasons behind the desire for change should be well thought out. Because makeovers begin on the inside and work their way outward, if you are dishonest with yourself about the motives for change, it may

BEAUTY OF CHANGE Transformations are exciting, but never

forget to research your options and ask any questions you may have.

be—and often is—difficult to truly come to terms with your new look. You should be changing for yourself, not anyone else.

Are your expectations realistic? If your motivations are sincere, the next step is ensuring your expectations of the transformation are realistic. Avoid pitfalls like asking your surgeon to make you look like someone else or expecting to resemble your favorite celebrity after the procedure. Instead, aim for the most naturallooking way to achieve your goals and be the best version of yourself.

Is your timing right?

Before any decision is made, your health should be in good order and both the downtime and all pre- and post-operative instructions should be understood. If you’re unable to follow all guidelines, it may not be the right time to have the procedure done.

24 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

Have you done your homework?

Understanding all of your options when it comes to the procedure that will deliver your transformation is crucial. Not only will selecting the right technique and surgeon allow you to look your best, but it will also help you feel confident before and after the operation.

Dr. Irwin Smigel The Father of Aesthetic Dentistry

It was with a heavy heart

that we said good-bye to a true pioneer, innovator and industry icon this fall. Regarded internationally as the “Father of Aesthetic Dentistry,” Dr. Smigel was one of the most celebrated cosmetic dentists in the country. He was the founder of The American Society of Dental Aesthetics, a diplomat of the American Board of Aesthetic Dentistry, a beloved NewBeauty board member and the brain behind Supersmile, an innovative oral-care line that maintained and whitened smiles across the globe. Dr. Smigel was at the forefront of many of the techniques and technologies now present in modern dentistry, spearheading methods such as tooth bonding, veneers and whitening that are now commonplace within the industry. Dr. Smigel was so influential in his work, that in 2009, he was recognized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Dentistry with a permanent installation called “The Smile Experience,” which pays homage to his life’s work. He is the only dentist to hold this honor. Responsible for many of the world’s most brilliant smiles including Elizabeth Taylor and Jimmy Fallon, we feel incredibly fortunate to have worked so closely with Dr. Smigel and will, along with millions of others, miss him greatly.

THE NEW PROBIOTIC

WOULD YOU DRINK DIRT?

LEVI BROWN/TRUNK ARCHIVE

WE’VE HEARD OF SOME PRETTY OUT-OF-THE-BOX BEAUTY DRINKS BEFORE, BUT THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE.

What it is: While we aren’t

What the expert says:

discounting the benefits of probiotics and prebiotics, the newest take on those helpful bacteria boosters is here, and it strays out toward left field. Rather than ingesting bacteria to get your skin and body in check, it’s now all about dirt, and drinking it. Said to taste somewhat earthy and deemed totally safe, RESTORE, a soil-based supplement, may be the answer to restoring alkalinity in the body.

Considered nature’s antidote to the toxins found in our environment, the idea for RESTORE came about from research done by founder Dr. Zach Bush. “Environmental factors are embedded in our soil, water and air. These herbicides damage the proteins that allow the body to absorb the nutrients it needs,” says Dr. Bush. “Taken three times a day, the supplement can improve mental clarity and sensory processing. Even if you eat a clean, gluten-free, non-GMO, organic diet, you are still susceptible to herbicide contamination.”

A FILLER FOR Y O U R E A R LO B E S

Doctors have mastered fillers on the face, but there was one area that wasn’t getting attention—until now. “It was only natural that the ears would be the

next area to rejuvenate,”

New York dermatologist Patricia Wexler, MD, says. “When we correct the face and it looks younger, the ears often look droopy with stretched-out holes. For saggy earlobes, we can use hyaluronic acid fillers to add volume and support, ‘closing’ enlarged holes so that they’re tight and small.” The injections take minutes but last six months—granted you give up wearing heavy earrings.

For years, it’s been all about the ageshielding effects of argan and coconut oils, but a new oil is stealing the spotlight.

In the world of lasers, there are those that ablate the skin (removing its outer layer), and there are those that are nonablative (keeping the skin intact). The latest nonablative laser is the FRAX, available

on the Nordlys Hybrid System from Ellipse USA. “It uses selective waveband technology and filters out unnecessary light and the higher wavelengths that serve no benefit and cause

more pain,” says Grand Rapids, MI, plastic surgeon Bradley Bengtson, MD. It also uses a narrow band of light energy and creates a short pulse of energy as opposed to a longer band of energy with more heat. “It can treat unwanted hair, sun damage, red and brown lesions, acne, scars, facial veins, veins around the eyes, spider veins, and skin texture issues,” adds Dr. Bengtson. According to the company, the little-tono-downtime treatment (one to three sessions are recommended) feels like a rubber band snap on skin.

Could a new way to inject fillers be on the horizon? Our sources say yes, if the Teoxane Teosyal Pen, which is already available in 40 countries around the world and becoming popular stateside, becomes the wave of the future. Unlike needles and syringes, the motorized

pen takes the focus away from how much pressure is applied and puts an

emphasis on how to place the product. “It applies pressure to the syringe and drives the product out,” says West Palm Beach, FL, dermatologist Kenneth R. Beer, MD. “The pressure is constant and lower than when manually applied, so there is less pain and force for delivery of the product because regular syringes require manual pressure.”

You know you’ve found a good self-tanner when it leaves you looking like a bronzed goddess. But almost all faux tanners do little for the moisture levels in your skin, causing it to feel dry. “Dryness

typically occurs when the body isn’t properly hydrated in the days before and after using tanner. The drier the skin is, the more likely it is that itchiness from a tanning product will occur,” says LaDonna Sheridan, director of sales for Fake Bake. A new self-tanner from Fake Bake, called Flawless Coconut Tanning Serum, goes one step further than most by infusing the lightweight

“A fringe is a cute look for winter because the length of the bangs helps to hide the pale skin that’s common of the season. It’s also a great way to change your look when you’re in between lengths or growing out a bob or lob.” For those who are too scared to take the plunge, Marjan suggests trying a faux fringe—we like Bellami Cleopatra Clip In Bangs. “You just want to make sure the faux piece matches your hair color. To create more of a natural, rooty feel, spray your roots with a product like Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch-Up Spray,” she adds. “You should always have the hairpiece professionally cut, too, so that it suits your face and blends in with your natural hair.”

For years, silicone reigned supreme as the ultimate ingredient for soft, smooth, silky hair. Although it does wonders, it can also weigh hair down and leave behind residue. Broccoli oil (or brassica seed oil) is beginning to be used as a replacement for silicone and it’s said to soften and smooth hair just as well— if not better. “It acts like a heat protectant and adds shine to hair,” says Richelieu Dennis, founder and CEO of Sundial Brands. You can find it in Madam C.J. Walker’s Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Blow Out Crème, which when applied to wet hair, delivers a shorter blow-dry time. “Broccoli is taking topical beauty to new heights,”

BIGGER HAIR IS N OW B ET T E R

As celebrity stylist and inventor of the Beachwaver, Sarah Potempa, explains, it’s all about a different type of wave this season.

“As we transition from summer to cooler months, we are going to see bigger, more polished curls,” she says. Hair that looks undone but not messy is

the “it” style right now. “There’s also a major movement into healthy hair, and these waves reinforce that,” adds Potempa. The look is pretty easy to do, too. “Run some mousse through damp hair and blow-dry. Then, back-brush it at the root. Curl one-inch sections away from your face,” instructs Potempa. Brush the curls together and roll them up, then pin them to cool. “Once your hair is completely cool—let it sit for 30 minutes—unpin it and spray it with hairspray. Then, brush it out for a smooth, polished look.”

“Bryce’s bare, natural-looking skin is complemented by her nude glossy lip and lightly defined eyes,” says celebrity makeup artist Jane Cohen. “She has a delicate, pale complexion, and showcasing it with very little foundation and a hint of blush is a perfect way to emphasize her flawless skin. And to make sure her eyes don’t disappear into the background, they are lightly defined with eyeliner on the upper lids.”

“This look is dramatic and reminds me of a 1940’s movie star,” says Cohen. “Both the eyes and lips are making a statement, which can often be overpowering, but I think it works here because the eye shadow is muted and soft, adding subtle definition. The drama comes from the dark eyeliner and lashes, and bold, well-defined lips. I like this shade of red lipstick on Bryce, as it perfectly suits her red hair and pale skin.”

THE PROBLEM

“HOW CAN I GET RID OF MY ACNE SCARS FOR GOOD?” written by Tatiana Bido

5 4 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

skin

As if having acne isn’t bad enough, after the

blemishes fade, skin can be left with discolored and pitted scars that are hard to hide. They don’t appear from just picking at your face; there’s a lot happening under the skin. “They form because of inflammation in the skin that results from red, irritated acne and picking at your skin,” says Santa Monica, CA, dermatologist Karyn Grossman, MD. “Nothing can totally return your skin to its perfect prior state, but there are treatments that can significantly reduce the look of scars.”

If your skin is rough from cystic acne, an at-home tool may improve skin texture.

If your skin has brown or red discoloration, an acid-based serum can help with the spots.

According to Dr. Grossman, scars on the forehead and cheeks can make skin appear uneven. “The two major types of scars are rolling hill (undulations in the skin where the skin is depressed) and ice-pick scars (deep narrow scars).” At-home microdermabrasion tools like Trophy Skin MiniMD Microdermabrasion System, can somewhat help remove the outer layer of skin using light abrasion to smooth out any rough areas. $99, trophyskin.com

Acne can cause scarring and discoloration that may fade naturally, but sometimes extra help is needed. “If the discoloration is red or brown, it’s not technically a scar, but rather prolonged inflammation in the area that may lead to scarring later on,” says Dr. Grossman. Milder at-home treatments, like Cosmedix Clarity Skin Clarifying Serum, which contains salicylic acid to remove dead skin, can also help diminish discoloration.

If your scars are difficult to hide, mask them with full-coverage foundation.

If your skin is bumpy and uneven, smooth it out with a weekly glycolic acid peel.

If your skin is indented from picking, plump it up with fillers and/or lasers.

The inflammation and redness associated with acne can lead to dark spots that are difficult to erase. Dr. Grossman explains that some hard-to-cover spots, which are the lingering effects of acne, need the help of makeup to fully conceal them. Formulated with an anti-inflammatory agent and antibacterial tea tree oil, bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Foundation fully covers discolored skin while also preventing future breakouts from occurring.

Certain types of acne can lead to noticeable scars and uneven, bumpy skin. “These scars, which are caused by excess tissue production, result in raised tissue where the blemish was,” says New York facial plastic surgeon Lee Ann Klausner, MD. “Pigmentation can be treated with topical agents like hexylresorcinol and hydroquinone.” Used once a week, Natura Bissé Glyco Extreme Peel works to exfoliate skin for a visibly smoother complexion.

Fillers can temporarily raise the depressed portion of the scars. Occasionally, the skin won’t lift enough with filler, and according to New York dermatologist Jody Levine, MD, fractionated lasers (a combination of lasers was used on the patient here) can boost collagen production with less downtime. “The collagen growth can help rejuvenate skin and improve scars.” Microneedling, which involves tiny needles puncturing the skin to promote collagen growth, can also help heal scars.

Not only does this sonic toothbrush (it’s travel-friendly, too) look pretty sitting on your bathroom counter, but it also packs a serious punch, producing 40,000 vibrations per minute to give your teeth and gums the deep clean they need.

Solid toothpaste? Yes, and it actually works. Just chew on the tablet to create a foam, wet your toothbrush and brush as normal. The cola flavor is unique and there’s a bit of a chalky finish due to the powdered charcoal that leaves teeth spotless.

Let’s face it, flossing isn’t fun. But, when your floss tastes good, you might be more inclined to do it regularly. This strawberry-flavored one glides between teeth to remove any lingering plaque and food that brushing may not fully dislodge.

Rather than popping breath mint after breath mint, only to still be left with bad breath, stash this mouthwash in your bag. Fill the packet with water to transform the powder into a rinse and then gargle for fresher breath and whiter teeth.

Aside from its chic, modern design, this subscription service takes oral hygiene to a new level. Rather than wondering if it’s time to swap out your toothbrush, choose a plan and a new one will arrive at your door every three months.

Easier to use than whitening strips—there’s no mess either—this mint-flavored whitening pen (the brush feels soft on teeth) instantly refreshes your smile on the go, whether you’re between meetings or on a date. Say good-bye to stained teeth in a flash!

Nighttime is when skin does its heavy lifting.

truth the con: the pro:

ARE NIGHT CREAMS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN DAY CREAMS? The difference between day and night products is that daytime formulas typically contain SPF and have a lighter consistency to layer under makeup. While both are needed for healthy skin, do heavier night creams contain stronger ingredients and work better than day creams? We find out.

5 8 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

Nighttime products help maintain healthy skin and reduce signs of aging because skin repairs itself overnight to erase any damage it incurred during the day. “Nighttime is when skin does its heavy lifting,” says Patti Pao, founder/CEO of Restorsea skin care. “Skin does the bulk of its restoring and repairing while we sleep, so night creams are focused on moisture and recovery, which is why they are often richer and heavier than day creams.” They also typically include a larger concentration of ingredients like peptides and stronger actives. A key one is retinol (it boosts cell turnover to get rid of dull skin and fine lines), which is best used at night because it is known to increase skin’s sensitivity to sunlight.

Some skin-care pros say that daytime and nighttime products are equally as effective. “The active ingredients in day creams are different than those in night creams, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t significant for achieving optimal skin health,” says New York dermatologist Dendy Engelman, MD. “Some ingredients, like SPF and antioxidants, are better received by skin in the morning versus at night due to the body’s circadian rhythms, so using them at night provides little to no benefit.” And, because your skin is most likely to be under direct UV rays during the day, regular use of SPF (no less than 30) could mean the difference between having a bright, youthful complexion or a discolored, aged one.

The Bottom Line: Products designed for use at night often contain stronger active ingredients, especially in regard to anti-aging, but that doesn’t mean they’re more effective than daytime types; they just serve a different purpose. Both should be important parts of your daily skin-care routine.

If these are just a few of the problems looking

back at you in the mirror, chances are a facelift is what you need. But before you commit to the procedure, you should know what really goes into it. This includes everything you need to do, both pre- and post-surgery, to optimize your results, which can make you look 10 years younger and tighten everything back to where it belongs. We’ve got the scoop right here, and it’s not nearly as scary as you may think.

FACELIFT BASICS

THIS SURGICAL PROCEDURE GENERATES DRAMATIC RESULTS; HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. AN INCISION IS MADE AROUND THE EAR AND THE SCARS USUALLY BLEND IN WELL. In order for your plastic surgeon to tighten loose skin and tissue, an incision (about two inches long) will be made above your ear behind your hairline, down the contour of your ear before looping around your earlobe and the back of your ear and ducking into your hairline. “If we’re addressing the neck, an incision is made under the chin,” says New York plastic surgeon Craig Allen Foster, MD. These incisions allow your surgeon to get to the underlying muscles and tissues. Post-surgery, the incision points are closed with stitches or staples. Once you are healed, scars are usually minimal.

FOUR

SIGNS OF A BAD FACELIFT

L O OSE SKIN IS REMOVED AND UNDERLYING MUSCLES AND TISSUES ARE TIGHTENED. Once the incisions have been made, your plastic surgeon will tighen the muscles and tissues under your skin. “To do this, the skin on your cheeks, jawline and neck needs to be manipulated in such a way to get to the underlying layers of your face. The deeper layer, also called SMAS or fascia, is lifted and repositioned,” says Mexico plastic surgeon Juan Carlos Fuentes, MD. Any fat that needs to be removed or added will be done at this time. From there, excess skin is removed and the skin is gently stitched back into place.

A VISIBLE SCAR IN FRONT OF EACH EAR The incisions used in a facelift should make for a barely detectable scar. If you see a big red scar that runs along the entire length of the ears, chances are they had a less-than-ideal facelift.

It’s all about lifting what needs to be repositioned to where it should be and filling in what’s been lost so that you look like yourself, just younger,” says Northborough, MA, plastic surgeon Cynthia Poulos, MD. “One of the biggest concerns patients have is that they’ll look like they’ve had surgery, which means that the face is too tight or excessively pulled in the wrong direction. Nobody wants to look like they’ve had a facelift. They just want to look like themselves, only better.”

“Some ads say you can have a facelift done during lunch or go back to work two days later, but that’s not realistic,” says New York facial plastic surgeon Andrew Jacono, MD. “There is major downtime with a facelift.” After surgery, you’ll need a few hours to wake up from the anesthesia. There may be drains under your skin to prevent blood and fluid from collecting. A week later, stitches are removed and you’ll still be swollen, numb and bruised (it can take a few months to resolve). You’ll want to stay home and keep activities to a minimum. With a mini-facelift, the recovery may be shorter because the procedure is not as extensive.

PIXIE EARS

SIDEBURNS THAT HAVE MOVED UP OR ARE GONE

SKIN THAT LOOKS STRETCHED OUT

When the ears look pulled, deformed or like they’ve been sewn onto the face, it’s usually because too much skin was removed or unnecessary tension was placed on the incisions near the ear.

A facelift shouldn’t change the hairline. However, sometimes an incision needs to be placed above the ear and into the hair behind the sideburn and temple, which forces the sideburns and hairline to migrate upward.

In some facelift patients, their skin looks so tight that it appears uncomfortable. The skin can also seem to have an odd draping to it. “It has to do with how the skin was redraped by the surgeon,” says Dr. Foster.

THE RE SULTS ARE L ONG-LA STING, BUT YOU MAY OR MAY NOT OP T TO DO IT AGAIN.

YOU MAY NEED ADDITIONAL PROCEDURE S TO GET RID OF WRINKLE S.

A facelift delivers long-lasting results. But, as Dr. Fuentes explains, the results are dependent on factors like genetics and health. “If only the skin is pulled and the underlying muscles and tissues are not repositioned, the results won’t last as long.” Some people may need a secondary facelift because surgery doesn’t stop the aging process—your face will continue to age. For the most part, getting a facelift at a younger age leads to longerlasting results than if you were to have it done when you’re older. “You’ll always look better than you would if you never did it,” Dr. Foster adds.

One of the biggest things to know about a facelift is that it addresses parts of the face that are drooping. “Anything that has to do with the surface of the skin is a textural issue and a facelift won’t fix that,” says Dr. Jacono. While it will smooth out some lines and wrinkles, it won’t fully erase them, so you may need additional procedures (done while you’re under anesthesia or post-surgery). “Oftentimes, I combine a facelift with a fractional CO2 laser. It’s common for a facelift to be done in conjunction with a browlift, necklift, eyelid surgery and light peels, as well as fillers and Botox, too.”

NOT ALL FACELIFTS ARE THE SAME

ACCORDING TO LA JOLLA, CA, PLASTIC SURGEON ROBERT SINGER, MD, DIFFERENT LIFTS ARE PERFORMED DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH SAGGING THERE IS, WHAT NEEDS TO BE TREATED AND THE DESIRED OUTCOME. THE FULL FACELIFT:

Often considered “the works,” a full facelift corrects sagging and loose skin on the face and neck, and creates noticeable improvement on the entire face. THE MID-FACELIFT:

Honing in on more of the middle part of the face, a mid-facelift works to alleviate problems like saggy cheeks and deep folds around the mouth.

THE LOWER FACELIFT:

When jowls and saggy skin are an issue on just the bottom portion of the face and the rest of the face is in pretty good shape, a lower facelift may be the best option. THE MINI-FACELIFT:

Using a smaller incision than a full facelift, a mini-lift gives some tightening to the cheeks and jaw, but without any muscle correction, so the results last five years or less.

“I had a mini-facelift (done by Houston plastic surgeon Henry Mentz, MD) and am so glad I did. I started to feel like I looked aged, and I knew I had to do something about it. During my consultation with my doctor, we discussed options for surgery as well as post-surgery procedures. We decided that a facelift would be the best procedure to address my concerns. I wasn’t really nervous in the days leading up to my surgery. But when surgery day rolled around, I started to get nervous. The recovery period lasted about 10 days, and I was pretty swollen, but I used a specialized face mask to help with the swelling and pain. It wasn’t until about week three that I could wear makeup again. Since having my facelift, I look about 10 to 15 years younger. I love the result and would definitely do it again.”

truth. IS AIR-DRYING YOUR HAIR REALLY BETTER? It’s a healthy-hair tale that’s told time and time again: Anything that involves heat is bad, and letting hair dry naturally is good. But shockingly, air-drying may be more damaging than you think.

MYTH

1

Going to bed with wet hair is a good idea. Brace yourself: This supercommon habit can actually lead to mold growth on your scalp. Anabel Kingsley, trichologist at Philip Kingsley, explains that like with anything you might expose to water for too long, your scalp (and pillow!) can actually harbor bacteria and mold, which can lead to flaking and dandruff. “Scalp health is vital for healthy hair—some studies even show a flaky scalp can cause hair loss.” MYTH

2

Brushing through wet hair is OK, as long as you use the right brush. Not exactly, and this is probably the number-one mistake most people make when it comes to air-drying their hair. Kingsley says it’s

better to start with a comb if your hair is wet, and only make the switch to a brush once it is dry. “Wet hair is swollen hair and it stretches by as much as 20 to 30 percent. Roughly brushing your hair when it’s wet can snap it like a rubber band.” But when it is time to brush, look for one that is padded and vented with round, flexible plastic prongs, which are gentler on hair. MYTH

3

You don’t have to be that careful when handling wet hair. Britta Cox, founder and creator of Aquis, a line of absorbent Aquitex hair towels, says most hair issues arise from how you manage wet hair. “Water in hair does not come without some risk of damage—the wetter the hair, the larger the risk. Depending on the type and health of your hair, that risk varies.” As she explains, hair contains keratin proteins held together by disulfide and hydrogen bonds, which

66 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

provide strength and shape. “If the bonds are exposed to water for too long, they break and hair becomes stretchy, which weakens it and can lead to split ends and breakage. It’s always safer to work with damp hair versus soggy-wet hair.” MYTH

4

Towel-drying is totally overrated. “Towel-drying your hair should be your first step when you get out of the shower,” says New York hairstylist Ilias Zarbalis.

It may sound simple, but this tip will benefit you in the long run: “Rubbing hair too forcefully will roughen the cuticle, leading to frizz and breakage. I suggest blotting hair with a towel and shaking it out with your fingers. This will take hair longer to dry, but it will be healthier.” And if you do air-dry, Zarbalis advises nailing down the proper product lineup. “Using a small amount of product is very important in order to maintain a desirable look. Most hair types have a natural wave, so I suggest a curl or wave cream. For fine or straight hair, I recommend using an oil at the ends to tame flyaways.”

MYTH

5

THE BIGGEST MYTH!

Heat-styling is never healthy. Yes, heat tools can be taxing on your hair, but Zarbalis says they don’t have to be. “Before using a heat tool, it is important to hydrate and protect your locks. Using a heat protectant will help lessen damage and frizz while also increasing shine,” he adds. “I also recommend using a low temperature setting. Your tools should be hot enough to curl or straighten your hair, but not hot enough to burn it.”

The reasons you sweat.

Sweating is how your body cools itself off, removes toxins and controls salt levels.

W H AT TO D O ABOUT IT Use a Strong Antiperspirant

CRAZY BEAUTY QUESTION

“I SWEAT LIKE CRAZY BUT I’M NOT GOING THROUGH MENOPAUSE. WHY?” Living with excessive sweating is a problem that is difficult to hide. Wet underarms, stained clothes and a fear of raising your arms in public can be debilitating. This is what’s making you sweaty, and how to stop it. W H Y I T’S H A P P E N I N G

Your Sweat Glands Are Working Overtime Sweating is healthy and natural. But extreme sweating (primary hyperhidrosis) occurs when your sweat glands are in overdrive. “People with hyperhidrosis have hyperactive sweat glands, so those glands are in the ‘on’ position continuously, resulting in excessive sweating,” says Raleigh, NC, plastic surgeon Cynthia Diehl, MD. “Normally, the body sends signals to sweat in order to cool off. Hyperactive sweat glands are not responding to those normal signals, leading to constant sweating.”

It Could Be an Underlying Issue Willowbrook, IL, dermatologist Jessie Cheung, MD, says that excessive sweating throughout your whole body (secondary hyperhidrosis) can be caused by an underlying issue. “It can be due to anxiety, inflammatory diseases, diabetes, thyroid problems or certain medications,” she explains. “If hyperhidrosis is caused by an underlying medical reason, treating that particular condition can help to ameliorate the sweating.”

According to Dr. Diehl, if the chemicals in clinicalstrength deodorants are too harsh for your skin to tolerate, cutting back on how often you use them can help those with sensitive skin. “Some people spend a lot of time washing and reapplying strong antiperspirants, which although are effective at sealing off sweat glands, can also be irritating. You may need to use them intermittently rather than continuously,” says Dr. Diehl. In the meantime, combat wetness

throughout the day with nonirritating deodorant wipes. These convenient cloths are safe to use anywhere on the body.

Try a Permanent Solution While Botox Cosmetic is a temporary way to curb excessive underarm sweating (results can last for up to six months), Dr. Diehl says other solutions offer a more permanent fix. “Technologies, like miraDry, target the sweat glands, and even though the nerve can still send a signal to sweat, once those glands have been destroyed, they stop producing sweat forever.” Using a noninvasive handpiece, miraDry delivers electromagnetic energy under the skin to eliminate sweat glands. “Although it is designed to target the sweat glands, the odor glands happen to be at the same level and also get eliminated,” explains Dr. Diehl. “Because the odor gland is connected to the hair follicle, the patient will experience significant hair loss as a result. For women, that is a big advantage because you can tackle sweat, odor and hair in one treatment. If you have hyperhidrosis, you may need a second treatment for optimal effect, but once a sweat gland is destroyed, it’s gone forever.”

The simplest way to get sweating under control is by using a prescription-strength antiperspirant, which you can apply at bedtime and also throughout the day. “A prescription-strength aluminum chloride solution works by plugging up the sweat glands,” says Dr. Cheung. “Most patients can get away with applying it once every few nights.” An over-the-counter product containing the same high percentage of aluminum salts can also be used to form a plug that slows perspiration escaping from the sweat glands.

Going from light to dark or long to short are some of the easiest ways to totally transform your hairstyle and overall look.

To soften her face and define her features, celebrity stylist Marie Ferro cut Ingar’s hair into face-framing layers. She also took her color from a drab, dark hue to a rich red to transform her lifeless hair using Goldwell color. “Adding multidimensional red tones in her hair enhanced her skin tone and facial features. Her hair and skin complement each other now and she radiates a healthy glow,” says Ferro. BEFORE: A dull, grown-out style

To keep your color looking its best, it’s important to use shampoos, conditioners and treatments made for color-treated hair. “Once hair has been treated with dye, it has the potential to fade and turn brassy and dull,” say Lorean Cairns, cofounder and creative director of Fox & Jane Salon. “If you’re not using the right products, this can happen within a few washes. Toning shampoos and conditioners are a great way to slow down or eliminate brassiness and fading.” Try washing and conditioning your hair with products like Alfaparf Milano Pigments Hydrating Shampoo ($22, pigmentsmaniaus.com) and Klorane Conditioner with Pomegranate ($20, sephora.com).

This 43-year-old woman met with Boca Raton, FL, dermatologist Robyn Siperstein, MD, about the brown spots and wrinkles on her skin, and along with the help of her doctor, created a customized plan that would be spread out over the course of two months to combat the problems at hand. Dr. Siperstein first injected Elise’s forehead and crow’s-feet with Botox Cosmetic to smooth out visible lines.

A few weeks later, Juvéderm was injected into her cheeks, forehead, marionette lines and nasolabial folds. To further enhance those results, another round of Juvéderm was used a few weeks later. Once her lines had faded and volume was restored to deficient areas, Dr. Siperstein treated her skin with one session of BBL to brighten her skin tone and correct discoloration. The result: smoother, more evenly toned skin that makes her look years younger.

Things to Know About Surgery Before you decide to commit to any type of plastic surgery, here are a few things to know.

Plastic surgery of any kind is serious business, which is why you really need to know what you’re signing up for and who’s going to be at the helm of your operation. There’s a lot to know and do before you commit to any type of surgical procedure, and these are the top five things to be aware of before you decide to hit the operating table.

d Know who’s operating on you. Only trust a board-certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon with proper training and credentials who is practicing within scope. “You must trust your surgeon to understand your concerns and communicate expectations,” says Westborough, MA, facial plastic surgeon Min Ahn, MD.

Every procedure comes with risks. “Many procedures are elective, and if you are investing the time and money, you should minimize any potential risks,” says McLean, VA, plastic surgeon Alex Mesbahi, MD. To avoid complications, it’s important to disclose your medical and surgical history and all medications you take, to your doctor.

Don’t choose your doctor based on price alone. Price may be a deciding factor to some degree on who you choose to have operate on you, but it shouldn’t be the only reason to select a doctor and a surgery. While there are options available to finance your surgery, you shouldn’t skimp on quality just to save a few bucks.

It takes time to see the final results. This isn’t the case with all procedures, but you’ll need to fully heal before you can see the end result. “Full healing takes about one year. The tissues need time to settle and it takes a while for the swelling, discoloration and numbness to subside,” says Dr. Ahn.

Nothing lasts forever. Plastic surgery can turn back the hands of time and give you something you may have always wanted. Although the results are permanent, you’ll probably need to keep up with what you’ve had done. “Surgical results do not last forever. However, the improvements can last several years,” says Dr. Mesbahi.

The decision to have plastic surgery is not only a big one; it’s also a forever one. Make sure that you’re doing this for yourself, and not anyone else. Having realistic expectations about your procedure and everything that comes along with it is the best school of thought to have before, during and after your surgery.

doctor’s orders

Your plastic surgeon knows best, which is why it’s important to follow each and every rule he or she sets for you. Give yourself plenty of time to recover. If you don’t allow yourself to take the time to rest and heal, you increase your risk of complications. This part of the process should never be cut short. Don’t partake in anything strenuous no matter what. Avoid working out, lifting anything heavy and doing anything that will physically exhaust your body until your doctor says it’s OK to do so. “With strenuous activity, blood pressure can increase, which can cause swelling or bleeding and delay healing,” says Dr. Ahn. “The less you do after surgery, the shorter your recovery will be.” Steer clear of additional procedures until you’re given the green light. You may not think that a facial, filler or chemical peel can compromise your results postsurgery, but it can, especially if you aren’t fully healed. Dr. Mesbahi says some procedures have the potential to impede healing. “Remember, it never hurts to ask.”

MAKE A CHANGE

WHAT TO DO FIRST

GET IN THE GYM

EAT BETTER

STICK WITH IT

Rilinger says to start off easy and not overdo it. Simple changes like eating a bit healthier at first and getting 30 minutes of exercise a day for the first few weeks will put you on the track to success. “Set some realistic goals so it’s easier to stay committed to getting fit.”

It’s also important to find a workout you like. “If you’ve never worked out, try a few different things, like boxing, running, spin classes or barre, and see what works for you,” says Rilinger, who suggests setting a schedule for structure. “Book classes and pay for them upfront. Money is always a great motivation to hit the gym.”

What you eat is just as important as what you do to work out. Keep your focus on clean, whole foods like lean proteins, vegetables and fruits while limiting consumption of alcohol and sugar. “Balance is key. Don’t make yourself miserable by eliminating everything you love, but make sure you build and maintain habits that lead to a balanced life,” says Rilinger.

According to BIC Soleil celebrity trainer Holly Rilinger, you’ll know when it’s time to get your body in gear. “We are all triggered by different things. It may be that you realize you are low on energy, that you don’t feel good in your clothes or you are constantly in pain and sick of it.” All of those factors, and more, can give you the willpower to make a change.

how the weight came off

“At 50 years old, I spent a fortune trying to lose weight and get in shape. The weight kept creeping up on me over the years and I got to a point where I was at my heaviest. As I got older, my butt started to droop, my legs were riddled with cellulite and I was terrified to wear a bikini. I tried shakes, diets, programs and personal trainers, but never got visible results. For all my efforts, I still had a saggy butt, bat-winged arms and a muffin top that wouldn’t go away.”

“Commitment is key in creating momentum. Nothing is easy at first and there will be times when you want to quit. But you will never see the changes you want unless you are willing to push through those hard times,” says Rilinger.

I started the Armageddon Weight Loss program, and although I was skeptical about a weight-loss DVD program really working, I soon learned that this was like nothing else I had ever tried. The entire program was completely personalized just for me, including meal plans and targeted training for my trouble spots. In five months, my legs became lean and toned, my arms now have beautiful lines, my butt is firm and lifted, and my cellulite and muffin top are actually gone.” BEFORE: She tried it all, but nothing worked

LOSE THE LAST 15 POUNDS AND REALLY TONE AND TIGHTEN HER BODY

I was on a mission to lose weight and get in shape, and I knew I had to completely change my eating and drinking habits—cheese was my biggest weakness and I gave it up for six weeks to reset my relationship with it. I started by eating clean, healthy foods and not drinking alcohol during the week. Then I began working out with a personal trainer twice a week and working out on my own two to four times a week. Once I started to plateau in terms of results, I worked with my trainer on a more rigid diet plan and did harder workouts on our off days. My meals were superdetailed and I based them on the workout I did for the day. Over the summer, I started training for my first triathlon. My eating plan was revised (again!) and I was now working out five to seven times a week. Since then I’ve completed two triathlons and gone from a size 16 to a size 4/6. I feel better than I ever thought I could. It’s been a year filled with lots of hard work, but this is a lifestyle change for me and the best one I’ve ever made.”

Once Rachael’s body was made over, it was time to update her hair and makeup. Losavio used smoky shadows to enhance her eyes. Black eyeliner on the inner rims of her eyes added thickness to her lash line, which was topped off with mascara to give the look of false lashes. He contoured and highlighted her face and used a plum color on her lips to tie the look together. Carver added balayage highlights and kept the ends and frame natural and bright for a beachy style (extensions were used, too).

“This is a lifestyle change for me and the BEST one I’ve ever made.”

Next, her teeth were whitened and porcelain veneers were placed over her top teeth. “This gave her longer, whiter teeth and a much fuller smile.”

HEALTHY AND BRIGHT Once you’ve gone through a smile makeover, it’s more important than ever to take really good care of your teeth. Neglecting good oral hygiene can cause your new, white, perfect smile to become discolored and easily damaged. Brush daily with a stain-removing toothpaste, like Colgate Optic White High Impact White ($4, target.com), and keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible with an at-home flossing device such as Waterpik Cordless Advanced Water Flosser ($100, waterpik.com).

IS THIS TREND HERE TO STAY? PROP STYLIST: ELIZABETH PRESS FOR JUDY CASEY INC.

RANKING UP THERE with a bar OF SOAP, balms HAVE THE REPUTATION OF BEING BASIC. BUT OVER THE PAST few months, THESE UNDERRATED FORMULAS HAVE BECOME GO-TO essentials. newbeauty.com / Winter • Spring 2017 / N E W B E A U T Y / 8 3


THE EVOLUTION THE VERY BEGINNING: While balms may be categorized as one of the “beginning of time” beauty products, today’s versions don’t exactly mirror their earlier counterparts. “Balm is an abbreviation of Balsam. The ancient Greek physician who also penned what we believe is the first written formula for a skin-care emulsion mentions balsams in his writing as well,” explains cosmetic chemist Kelly Dobos. “Balsam refers to a resinous tree sap that was used for medicinal purposes in ancient times. Because of its oily-skin feel, the term balm was later applied to greasy ointments developed for therapeutic skin treatments.” RECENT-DAY HISTORY: Balms used to be thought of as just “beauty salves”—old-fashioned formulations that your grandmother might use to fix cuts and scrapes because they do such a “spectacular job at moisturizing and protecting the outer layer of skin,” celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas says. “Back-to-basics has gotten really big in the past couple of years, and formulators sort of seized this one product type and ran with it. They know balms are things you ‘trust’ on your skin, so they took them one step further by upping their benefits.”

BEHIND THE SCIENCE:

THE BALM EVOLUTION

ONE BIG BENEFIT: By their very nature, balm formulations can contain a host of powerful ingredients. “Because a true balm is waterless, you can make it with more potent ingredients that stay stable for longer, and you can pack a lot in there,” Vargas explains. “Plus, they are actually sitting on your skin; they don’t really evaporate or sink in, so you are treating your skin at the source.” MODERN-DAY VERSIONS: Now, manufacturers have leveraged these unique formulations to create a whole new category of powerful products—ones that include everything from full-body balms and eye balms to SPF balms and illuminating ones. “I’ve been a balm lover for years. As a matter of fact, my first successful formulation attempt was a lip balm. Now, cleansing balms are my new obsession because I have such dry skin—they are also easier to travel with than a liquid cleanser and a makeup remover,” says Sunday Riley, founder of Sunday Riley skin care, who adds, in her opinion, that there’s still more to come. “I think we’ll see more balm products spreading into the hair, body and color worlds. Maybe even fragrance?”

THE AESTHETICIAN’S TAKE:

They’re potent.

THE COSMETIC CHEMIST’S TAKE:

They’re sophisticated.

Dobos says that, today, the term “balm” refers to a variety of modern products that have little in common with their predecessors. “Balms nowadays are so varied and have so many benefits. They barely resemble the ones from even five or 10 years ago.”

There’s a lot of cutting-edge skin-care science behind these products, and a whole bunch of next-generation formulations—they go way beyond a lip balm—to back up the trend.

THE BEAUTY-COMPANY FOUNDER’S TAKE:

They’re very hydrating.

“Balms are great in the winter or if you have mature skin because they’re richer and heavier and they help skin retain moisture for longer,” says Tata Harper, founder of the all-natural Tata Harper line.

WHY WOULD I WANT TO USE A BALM?

New Orleans aesthetician Mandy Epley says that because most balms ditch the H20, they are able to be more powerful. “Without the water, you typically get something more potent and pure.”

THE REASON FOR THE TREND

Did You Know? The NPD Group targets 2012 as the big year for the significant increase in BB or “beauty balm” creams. THE STAT: Only 2 percent of total beauty shoppers had actually purchased one, but almost 40 percent of shoppers were considering buying one in the future.

The next generation of skin and body balms is officially here, but it didn’t just pop up out of nowhere. Here are six reasons why the trend hit it big:

KOREAN BEAUTY SURGE.

WATERLESS PRODUCTS GAIN POPULARITY.

TEXTURE TAKES OVER.

INGREDIENT EXPLOSION.

THE ATTRACTIVENESS OF ALL-IN-ONES.

TRAVEL BECOMES TOUGHER.

It’s no secret that K-Beauty is big, and more and more of the “traditional” brands are taking note and tweaking their formulas. “Balms are definitely a big trend right now, especially in K-Beauty, which manufacturers sort of look to for ‘the next big trend,’” says Harper.

According to Vargas, balms are made from waxes, oils and butters, and a true balm is waterless. Harper adds, “Waterless beauty, including cleansing balms, is a growing trend because there is a real fear for anyone concerned about the environment that water is becoming a scarce commodity.”

Harper says people are really into different textures right now in beauty—even for products that give the same effects—and balms are one way to get that. “Think about it: It’s nice to have options. It’s like ice cream versus a milkshake. You pick the one that works for your preference.”

From a formulation perspective, creating a balm involves many oil-soluble ingredients, which means more ingredients can be put into a single formula. Another plus: “They tend to contain more natural ingredients,” Epley adds.

Simply put, balms are multitasking products, and they make life much easier. “It’s the inherent value in the idea of an all-in-one formula that makes a balm so attractive,” says Mark Veeder, cofounder of Farmacy, a skin-care line that recently launched a multitasking balm. “They’re uncomplicated, and that’s what consumers want right now.”

If you’ve ever had your favorite beauty product taken by TSA, you know that one big bonus of a balm is that it’s solid. “Creams and lotions can be messy when you throw them in a bag,” Epley says. “Balms are almost always completely solid, they stay put and they can come in stick form, which is a huge product type right now. Plus, you can take them through airport security without an issue.”

ARE CLEANSING BALMS A CURE-ALL?

From dissolving every last trace of makeup to promising glowing skin, cleansing balms promote a ton of skin-loving benefits. Typically smooth in texture, most of them are made of an oil-based formulation that you wash off, so the balm formulation doesn’t stay on your skin for a prolonged period of time. (Riley says they might seem totally opposite, but cleansing balms and cleansing oils are really similar in the fact that both pack a punch of sheer hydration that leaves skin soft and smooth, but doesn’t leave a layer of product sitting on top.) These oils have the ability latch onto dirt and wash it away, which makes them particularly good for removing makeup.

HOW BALMS BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY BALMS VS. CREAMS: Simply put, a balm (one that you apply and don’t wash off ) is an outer skin protector, where a cream is intended to be absorbed. “Balms sit on top of the skin and protect rather than penetrate,” Vargas says. According to celebrity aesthetician Nerida Joy, balms are best described as ointments or preparations that are generally used to soothe and heal skin. “They have a waxy feel that provides protection to the outer layer of skin, rather than focusing on the treatment of lower levels of skin, which is what creams aim to do.”

HOW THEY INTERACT WITH SKIN: Because a balm coats the outer layer of skin, it does not allow ingredients to penetrate lower levels. “So, powerful ingredients in a cream will reach deeper levels than a balm,” Joy says. But, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially from a manufacturing and user standpoint. The formulators we interviewed noted that balms are some of the easiest products to make, while creams and lotions are trickier because there is such a huge range in textures available. Balms also tend to be simpler to use.

BALM BENEFITS Help With Dryness:

“Skin-care balms are good for sensitive skin, as well as dry skin on the body or lips,” Joy says, adding that they are also excellent for cracked heels. “Because they don’t absorb easily, they offer long-lasting protection.”

Alleviate Skin Irritations:

According to Vargas, because balms are soothing and hold moisture in, they serve as a powerful protective barrier between your skin and the elements. “They can be calming and soothing if you have skin

irritations of any kind. I use them as more of a medicinal element for skin that really needs some extra love.”

Suitable for PostTreatment: “I suggest balms

to my clients who just had an aggressive peel, who are undergoing lasers treatments, and/or who live in harsh, colder climates because they form a barrier on the skin that prevents water loss from the epidermis and protects from cold weather and the environment,” Epley says.

Easy to Use: It may sound simple, but Riley says the

number-one reason she loves balms is because they are just easy. “They are hassle-free for traveling, and the majority of them are very straightforward to use. That’s a huge plus for any consumer.”

WHAT THEY ARE NOT GOOD FOR:

Just like any other formulation, balms can be helpful for certain skin types and areas of the body, including lips, hands and feet, but they aren’t an answer to every problem. “Waxes and thicker balms can induce breakouts if you are already prone to them,” Vargas says.

THE PRO:

“Cleansing balms serve to soothe and protect the outer layer of skin, without disrupting it,” Joy says. “I think they are good for sensitive skin types that work better with a gentle cleanser.” Harper agrees and says it’s the most unexpected way she’s seen balms being utilized, and also one category she thinks will continue to grow. “I think we’ll definitely be seeing more cleansing balms in the future and maybe even some more eye balms. The consistency of these products helps create an impermeable barrier and lock in moisture.”

THE CON:

“While I am a fan of cold, harsh climate needs and posttreatment balms, I am not a big fan of cleansing balms,” Epley says. “They have a thicker, almost-solid texture, which can leave behind residue. Many cleansing balms come with a muslin cloth to remove the product, but I do not suggest using any type of cloth on the face on a regular basis. Most of us harshly pull and tug on our skin in the wrong direction, and over time, this breaks down the elasticity in our skin.”

Complexion Blow-Up IF LASER TREATMENTS MAKE YOUR SKIN BREAK OUT WITH TERRIBLE PIMPLES IF YOU suffer from breakouts and acne on the regular, it’s important to let your

doctor know before having your skin treated with a laser of any kind because some lasers can make existing acne worse and bring about breakouts days after the treatment. “Breakouts are commonly seen after laser resurfacing because some of the post-treatment ointments used are petrolatum-based and can clog pores,” says Melbourne, FL, dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD. If breakouts are rare and only happen after a laser, they could be popping up because of the treatment itself, the ointments or a combination of the two. “Breakouts WHAT TO DO INSTEAD often arise from laser hair removal because the hair is dense and coarse.

know your skin is breakout–prone, you may want to skip the heavy, occlusive salves and ointments. “Instead, you can use your favorite moisturizer with hydrocortisone (0.05–1.0 percent) and bacitracin conservatively for a day or two if the laser causes peeling that needs this type of moisture,” says Dr. Bomer. And rather than waiting for your skin to erupt after the treatment, play it safe and ask your doctor to prescribe an antibiotic for a few days before and after the laser is to be performed, which can help reduce any existing inflammation and clear up whatever may be lurking in your pores. If that still doesn’t help, you may want to consider something like a chemical peel, which shouldn’t instigate breakouts.

Skin-Care Scare IF YOUR PRODUCTS CAUSE YOUR SKIN TO BECOME ULTRASENSITIVE IN SOME CASES, the more you exfoliate your skin, the more it becomes sensitive. It can even get red, chapped and inflamed, causing you to believe your products are giving you an allergic reaction. “Many times, that’s not the case,” says Dr. Scheel. “What’s really happening is that if you are someone who exfoliates heavily, by using Retin-A and also doing microdermabrasion and peels, sensitive skin can WHAT TO DO INSTEAD develop.

1 TUMMY TUCK TERROR

“A patient came for a consult with me after having a ‘tummy tuck’ by an unqualified surgeon, which left her with misplaced scars that ruined the appearance of her abdomen. When I reviewed her before-and-after photos, I realized that a pre-existing tattoo near her belly button had not moved at all after her surgery, indicating that her abdominal skin was never actually tightened. Thankfully, this was a repairable situation, but I had to explain that she had sadly undergone a sham surgery, which had done nothing except create unwanted scars.” —ROBERT

At least once a month, someone comes to see me to correct filler under their eyes (injected by another doctor) that has turned their skin blue.

Product companies are not required to notify consumers if they have added ingredients or changed formulations. If a reaction to an ingredient is going to develop, it takes time initially to become sensitized, and upon each subsequent exposure, that time is decreased.

I removed the veneers using our erbium laser and cleaned up her gums with our YAG laser before placing four brand-new, handmade porcelain veneers. In the end, the veneers looked natural and beautiful and her gums healed to a perfect pink color.”

A BROKEN-DOWN SMILE “I had a female patient in her early 50s who had orthodontic treatments three times before getting veneers and crowns, which her previous dentist had made bulky and large. Because her upper teeth were so big, they moved her lower teeth. This also forced her bite to collapse, which lead to a loss of support on her front teeth and pressure on her back teeth. She had cracked, broken molars and couldn’t chew food properly. We had to do a full-mouth rehabilitation, which allowed me to create a healthy, natural-looking smile that functioned well. She ended up with the perfect smile for her face.”

3 TIPS YOU NEED TO KNOW SO YOU DON’T HAVE A BEAUTY DISASTER

Doing your homework is absolutely vital when it comes to limiting beauty mishaps. Here are three key steps to always follow. 01 Choose the right doctor. Make sure that whoever is performing any type of work on you is board-certified, practicing within scope and reputable, as not every practicing doctor is equipped to do every single aesthetic treatment. 02 Know what you’re getting. Besides doing your homework, it’s important to have realistic expectations regarding results. Be careful of catchy marketing and buzz words that make a procedure seem like something it’s not. 03 Only go with FDA-approved products and treatments. If you choose to have something done under the radar, chances are what you’re signing up for isn’t FDA-approved, which means there’s no scientific data, claims or known information about the treatment. For injectables, fillers and lasers, make sure they’re FDAapproved—check for specific brand names and logos on machines and bottles.

It appears as though almost all of us are engaged in a never-ending battle with it. Even if you work out and diet to no avail, your best efforts can sometimes work against you instead and little change can be seen on the scale. No matter what the cause of extra fat, there’s a DIY formula to follow to get it to budge. And, when that doesn’t work, there’s always something at the doctor’s office to get rid of it once and for all.

WHERE THE FAT STICKS THE BASICS Neck and chin

DOES IT SEEM LIKE NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU’RE STUCK IN AN UPHILL BATTLE WITH FAT? BEFORE YOU CAN TACKLE THE PROBLEM, YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT’S CAUSING IT.

Bra line

Extra fat here usually forms into a thick roll that can bulge through tops.

Arms

When there’s extra fat on the arms, plus loose skin (due to a loss of collagen), the result can be big, saggy arms.

All about fat. Fat doesn’t accumulate for no reason. It comes down to a simple formula: Eat more calories than your body needs to make energy, and the unused calories, which tend to come more from sugary, fatty and processed foods, will get stored in your fat cells. Once the cells are packed to the brim with extra fat, they begin to stretch out. When that happens, your body experiences weight gain. Because we all hold weight differently due to our genetic makeup, the general rule of thumb is that the areas where we gain fat first are usually the areas where we lose it first, too. But not all types of fat are equal, nor is fat always bad. In the body, there is white fat and brown fat, and each serves a different

purpose. White fat is what we typically think of as fat and it’s where we store extra calories. This is the fat that becomes enlarged when you gain weight. Brown fat is the type that burns calories. There’s also visceral fat, aka belly fat, which is the most inflammatory type of fat and often the hardest to lose. On the body, excess fat can cause lumps, bumps, rolls and bulges, but the body needs appropriate amounts of fat in order to function properly. With age, the face tends to lose fat and fat shifts downward, causing a hollow or sunken look (although it often increases in the neck with age). But, it can be restored with the use of fat transfer (fat taken from elsewhere on the body) and fillers.

Stomach and waist

It’s typically more difficult to lose weight in these areas, which women often complain about.

Butt

Thighs and hips

Excess fat on the hips and thighs can result in saddlebags, which can be eliminated with liposuction.

The reason for cellulite on your butt? Chock it up to fat that pushes against fibrous bands, causing dimples and puckers.

WHY WE GET FAT

As we get older, it becomes more common for extra fat to be stored right where the chin and neck meet and under the chin, too.


Why you can’t lose the weight

Age As you get older, it becomes harder and harder to keep weight off. New York plastic surgeon B. Aviva Preminger, MD, says, “With age, there’s a decrease in our physical abilities, which leads to a decrease in our metabolic rate.” It becomes more difficult to keep up with exercise, so muscle mass is lost and calories aren’t burned as efficiently. Dr. Preminger adds, “There is also a decrease in growth hormone, testosterone and estrogen levels, which slows metabolism and can cause women to put on weight. Women tend to struggle with the transition to menopause and the metabolic slowdown that it brings.” While genetics play a role in how much fat we carry and our number of fat cells, the aging process can lead to fat that sticks around.

Hormones Your hormones play a larger role in fat storage than you may think. “There are receptors on each fat cell that are affected by hormonal influences (menstrual cycles, pregnancy and menopause) throughout a woman’s life that cause fat cells to swell

or shrink,” explains New York plastic surgeon Kenneth R. Francis, MD. “The hormone estrogen is prominent in the body, especially during child-bearing years. As a result, fat cells in the lower abdomen and hip area become more affected by estrogen, which can cause fat to be stored in these areas.” As estrogen levels decline with age, some women start to gain weight post menopause, while others lose weight. La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD, says, “Weight gain and loss often depends on hormone replacement therapies, which can cause fluctuations.”

If you eat clean, healthy, well-balanced meals at the right caloric levels for your body, you will make use of those calories rather than storing them and having them turn into fat.

Metabolic changes At one point, you may have been able to eat whatever you wanted without it really “sticking.” Fast-forward to your 20s, 30s and beyond, and that school of thought can be completely thrown out the window. “Your basal metabolic rate (the amount of energy expended while at rest) drops roughly 1 to 2 percent every decade,” says celebrity nutritionist Cynthia Pasquella. But, so many of us don’t take into account that even though our metabolisms slow, changes need to be made to our diets, and they aren’t. Concord, CA, plastic surgeon Eric Mariotti, MD, adds that, “We know from studies that as we get older, we slowly lose muscle mass. Eating the same amount of food while maintaining the same amount of exercise leads to gradual weight gain. The only way to counteract it is to decrease your daily caloric intake or increase your amount of exercise, which will also build or maintain muscle mass.”

Lack of sleep If you don’t get enough sleep on a nightly basis to keep your hunger-controlling hormones under wraps, you’re more likely to pack on pounds. Sleep deprivation triggers your cortisol and ghrelin hormones to go into overdrive, which revs up your appetite and decreases the amount of leptin, the hormone that tells your brain you are full. Plus, when you’re up all night, you’re more likely to binge on sugary, processed and carb-loaded foods, as well as drink caffeine. “When you’re running on less than seven hours of sleep, you are less likely to make smart food choices,” says nutritionist Amy Shapiro, founder of Real Nutrition NYC.

which fat-burning zone you’re in and hold you accountable to stay there.”

Diet What you eat on a regular basis has a direct effect on the amount of fat in your body. “Diet is a huge piece of the puzzle,” says Pasquella. Foods that are processed and high in fat, refined carbs, sugars and empty calories, as well as eating large portions, can cause your fat cells to hold on to more fat and result in weight gain. “Eating more calories than you use will always result in weight gain,” says nutritionist Darya Rose.

Food-toexercise ratio Exercise It doesn’t matter what type of exercise you do, just that you do something, right? Not necessarily. If you’re not doing the right type of exercise for your body type, you may not be able to lose weight. According to celebrity trainer Kit Rich, while working out creates lean muscle mass—the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn—you need to focus on the right workout for your body and things like high-intensity exercises that incorporate weight lifting and cardio. It’s not about how long you work out for, but rather how challenged you are. “The best way to determine if your workout is hard enough for you is to go by how you feel. If the workout seems hard, it probably is,” says Rich. “You can also wear a heart monitor to let you know

One of the biggest and most common misunderstandings in trying to lose weight is how much food to eat and how much you should work out. “I always tell my clients that they can’t outrun a bad diet,” says Shapiro. “The amount of fat your body has largely depends on what you put in your mouth; the other 25 percent is from fitness. You can burn off calories in a spin class, but many people eat enough to refuel their body with those calories throughout the day. Or, they eat more than the calories burned, which then doesn’t provide a deficit in calories that’s needed to lose fat.” So even if you work out, you need to eat right. The best way to figure out how many calories to take in, as well as which foods to eat, is to use a specialized app or meet with an exercise physiologist who can help you devise the right plan.

EAT TO LOSE WEIGHT

DIET

FAT IS NEEDED TO SUSTAIN BODILY FUNCTIONS, BUT WHAT YOU EAT DICTATES HOW FAT CELLS SWELL.

Want to lose weight? Don’t do this.

Ò Load up on high-fiber bars and cereals. There’s nothing wrong with fiber, as long as you get it from natural sources, like fruits and vegetables. “Processed bars and cereals often contain ‘functional fiber,’ which comprises nondigestible carbohydrates isolated from foods,” says Pasquella. “There’s no evidence that functional fiber offers the same benefits as natural fiber.” Processed fiber bars tend to contain copious amounts of sugar, artificial ingredients and additives. Rose adds that they also aren’t satisfying enough to keep you from overeating. “They give a false sense of virtue, which enables you to rationalize your indulgences later on.” Ò Stockpile your kitchen with “fat-free” and “low-fat” foods. Foods that are packaged and marketed as low-fat or fat-free can actually cause more harm than good. “Low-fat and fat-

free foods are usually composed of simple and ‘white’ carbohydrates and/or filled with sugar to make up for the missing fat,” says Shapiro. “When fat is removed, something else needs to be added to the food to make it taste good. Most times, manufacturers go to sugar.” And too much sugar gets stored as fat. Ò Avoid protein. “Protein is the nutrient that takes the longest to break down, keeping you fuller for longer. The longer we stay full, the less we need to eat,” says Shapiro. But some people avoid protein, and that’s a bad idea. “Protein, when broken down, becomes amino acids, which are the building blocks for muscles,” Shapiro adds. You want to eat protein (egg whites, lean chicken and turkey, beans and fish), because it keeps you full and isn’t high in calories. Protein also burns the most amount of calories during the digestion process.

Ò Eat too many good fats. “While they get a bad rap, healthy fats are one of the three macronutrient groups that provide the body with energy,” says Carey Peters, cofounder of Health Coach Institute. Monosaturated fat, found in avocados and olive oil, and polyunsaturated fat, sourced from salmon and almonds, help the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins (A, E, D and K) and reduce inflammation in the body. But, like everything else, you want to make sure your diet has a balance of healthy fats and not too many, otherwise the excess gets stored as fat. Ò Fall prey to diets and detoxes that overpromise. Anything that’s a fast fix, starves your body or robs it of essential nutrients, probably isn’t a good idea. “My best advice is that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is,” says Pasquella. “I warn my clients against depriving themselves, as these behaviors only lead to binge eating later.”

FLORIAN SOMMET/TRUNK ARCHIVE

Ò Eat just salads. If you think surviving on a bowl of lettuce and vegetables for every meal is the secret to dropping pounds, you’re wrong. “While salads may be considered the healthiest selection on a menu, you need to consider what’s in them, like salad dressing, which contains artificial ingredients and sugars, and whether or not you’re getting enough protein, healthy fat, and fiber (all are needed to burn fat and boost metabolism),” says Pasquella. When a salad lacks these elements, eating it won’t do you much good.


WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR DIET STOPS WORKING

HERE’S WHY WOMEN GET FATTER FASTER

It’s happened to almost all of us. You start a diet, and a few weeks into it, the weight starts falling off. A few months later, that same diet isn’t working for you anymore. It’s called weight-loss plateau, and it happens because your body gets used to the way you’re eating. Basically, your body is adapting to taking in less calories each day by burning less stored calories from fat. “You need to stay focused, eat clean and eat less than you did at your starting weight,” says Shapiro.

“Women tend to store between 5 and 10 percent more fat than men, even though men consume more calories. This is probably due to the fact that additional fat storage is beneficial in times of fertility, fetal development and lactation,” says Dr. Preminger.

THE EXPERTS DEBATE:

IS BREAD THE KILLER?

The Best Fat-Blasting Diets DASH Diet GOOD FOR: Those who want to lower their blood pressure and reduce their risk of disease Your age and activity level are taken into consideration in this diet to determine your daily calorie intake and the calorie sources. There’s a huge focus on cutting down on salt and eating fruit, vegetables and low-fat dairy, although you can eat small amounts of whole grains, chicken and fish. The DASH diet helps you lose weight because you’re not consuming that many empty calories.

Mediterranean Diet GOOD FOR: Those who want to follow an anti-inflammatory, heart-healthy diet and still enjoy multiple food groups With an emphasis on fresh produce and fish, whole grains and healthy fats, the Mediterranean Diet mimics what’s eaten in countries like Greece, Italy and Spain. Nearly every meal contains nonstarchy vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers), healthy fats and lean protein. The remainder of the diet includes seeds, nuts, beans, eggs and whole grains. Besides being rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, this diet is also low in sugar and high in protein.

Paleo Diet

Vegan Diet

GOOD FOR: Those who are meat lovers

GOOD FOR: Those who want to reduce their risk of cancer and eat very clean

This diet goes back to the idea of how humans ate before processed and packaged foods were invented. Basically, anything that can be hunted or gathered can be consumed. Eating Paleo means completely cutting out sugar, dairy, grains, and synthetic, processed and manmade foods. You’re bound to lose weight because you’re eating as clean as possible. “Diets that are low in carbs are effective at blasting fat. When you limit your carb intake, your body uses those you store for energy. Once your body goes through all of those, it moves to fat for energy,” says Shapiro.

Made popular years ago and endorsed by celebrities like Beyoncé and Alicia Silverstone, going vegan is more than a diet—it’s a full-fledged lifestyle change. You have to cut out all animal by-products—some people even go as far as to remove them from all aspects of their life—and that even includes things like honey, and stick to a diet containing mostly fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. Nowadays, there are vegan options for pretty much everything you have to forgo, like vegan cheeses, milks and imitation meats.

Only eat it if you can have it in moderation. “If you practice choices of moderation and let go of extremes, you will naturally start to make healthier food choices,” says Pasquella. “Your best bets are sprouted grains or gluten-free, minimally processed options. Gluten-free doesn’t always mean that a product is healthy, so check the label for hidden ingredients like sugar and corn.” Don’t cut out all carbs, just the white ones. “When you cut out carbs, you cut out a lot of empty calories, such as the bread basket at a restaurant and white rice in Chinese food and sushi rolls. Although I don’t recommend avoiding carbs entirely, a la the Atkins Diet, limiting them and the kind you eat helps with weight loss. It also helps keep hormonal levels even, which in turn, prevents fat storage,” says Shapiro.

THE HARDEST PARTS OF THE BODY TO GET IN SHAPE: THE OUTER THIGHS, STOMACH AND TRICEPS “Circuit training focuses on the whole body and is great for those hard-to-tone areas. It is not possible to spot-reduce fat, so you have to train your whole body to see the kind of results you want,” says Rich.

discovery. HAVE YOUR WORKOUTS PLATEAUED? You may love your barre or spin classes, but if you’ve started to see a decline in weight loss and little muscle gain, chances are your body has gotten used to how you’re exercising and is starting to level off. “Anytime you do the same exercises over and over with little change, you’re going to plateau. The body needs variation. But at the same time, you need to be an explorer and see what works for your body,” says celebrity FitFusion trainer Andrea Orbeck. Your daily water intake is also important. “Take a look at how much water you are drinking every day. If you’re not losing weight, you may not be drinking enough water or you may be eating the wrong foods and too much of them,” Rich explains.

THE COMEBACK OF BOXING There’s always a new trending workout, and right now it’s all about boxing. “Boxing builds lean muscle and improves strength, coordination and cardiopulmonary health,” says Rich. Boxing, which has been around for decades, imparts aspects of both cardiovascular exercise and strength training. So while you burn off calories, you’re also building muscle. The end result: less fat on your body, especially in those places where it tends to accumulate.

need to limit your HIIT training—it burns insane amounts of calories in a short time because of the energy required to perform the exercises—and allow 48 hours between sessions, otherwise your muscles will become more susceptible to injury and lack the time needed to recover. With each week, try and up the ante with heavier weights and more reps. “When it becomes too easy or you don’t see your body getting leaner, you know it’s time to switch it up,” adds Orbeck.

Cardio + Strength training + Clean eating In order to really lose fat—and keep it off—you need to do a combination of cardiovascular exercise and strength training (but not always together in a single session) along with healthy, clean eating. “Proper weight loss is really a triad of these components. If one is missing, you won’t get the full effect,” says Orbeck.

Strength training WHY YOU NEED IT: To build muscle, which in turn burns fat Strength training, which involves lifting weights, doesn’t need to take you hours in the gym, but it does need to be part of your weekly workout schedule. “As long as what you’re doing is challenging and of a high enough intensity, you can get excellent results with a short 30-minute workout instead of

Cardio WHY YOU NEED IT: To burn calories

a 60- or 90-minute one,” says Orbeck. Strength training increases muscle mass, which forces your body to burn fat while creating more of a chiseled look. Rich says to always try to make your weight-lifting workouts contain a cardio component—it’s called HIIT (high intensity interval training, which is short but intense bursts of calorie-burning exercises followed by even shorter recovery periods)—like boxing and circuit training. This can help keep your metabolism in high gear for 24 hours after you’ve exercised. “Plus, weight training and HIIT training forces your body to continue to burn calories even after your workout is over because your body is recovering oxygen and repairing muscles. Maintaining or increasing muscle mass will maintain and increase your metabolism and fat burning,” says Shapiro. However, you

Think of the cardio component of your workout routine like a furnace—without it, you can’t burn the underlying layers of fat that conceal muscle. Cardio burns calories, but if you only do cardio—like running, walking or spinning—you’re not going to see a steady stream of change. This is because, as Rich says, cardio alone causes the body to become more endurancefocused, which actually leads to more fat being stored. Working out with just cardio exercises most likely won’t give you the results you’re looking for either because you won’t be building muscle mass. And, it can even break down muscles if you’re not eating the right amount of healthy calories. “Don’t get me wrong, cardio is important for cardiovascular strength, heart stamina and the overall functioning of your body. But, you need to limit how long and how often you do it and supplement it with things like weight lifting, yoga and Pilates.”

BLAST THE FAT FOREVER

IN OFFICE

WHEN DIET AND EXERCISE ONLY DO SO MUCH, THESE DOCTOR-ADMINISTERED OPTIONS MAY BE WHAT YOU NEED TO GET YOUR BODY LOOKING HOW YOU WANT IT TO.

The Fat Melters While some use heat or radio-frequency energy, others use cold or chemicals to shrink fat cells. The fewer fat cells in an area, the less “full” that area will appear. Noninvasive fat-melting devices offer long-lasting results. But, don’t expect as much fat reduction as what you would get with liposuction.

1

UltraShape Power: The Belly-Fat Buster The difference between UltraShape Power and other devices is that it uses focused ultrasound energy to destroy unwanted fat on the abdomen, which the body then naturally eliminates. According to Troy, MI, plastic surgeon Anthony Youn, MD, the treatment is less than 45 minutes and virtually painless. But, it requires three treatments spaced two weeks apart. “Most subcutaneous fat pockets on the thighs, flanks and abdomen can be treated with UltraShape Power,” says Dr. Youn. “While you’ll need a series of treatments (rather than just one), the results may be seen a little quicker than other treatments. Some patients can see a difference as early as two weeks after the first treatment.” 1 0 4 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

Kybella: The Under-Chin Smoother Even though Kybella is only FDA-approved for reducing fat in the chin (it uses an ingredient known as deoxycholic acid to break down fat) some doctors are using it off-label to treat fat on other parts of the body that are difficult to treat, like the thighs and bra line. As Dr. Francis points out, Kybella uses deoxycholic acid to release the lipid content of what’s stored in fat cells. Basically, the injections cause the fat to be expelled from the cells and then absorbed by the body. “When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella results in a noticeable reduction in fullness,” says Dr. Preminger. At the moment, Kybella is the only injectable treatment on the market for reducing fat in this area, and despite the fact that it does wonders, it’s not for everyone. “It really comes down to whether or not the patient is a good candidate for it and if they will be left with loose or saggy skin once the fat is removed,” says Omaha, NE, dermatologist Joel Schlessinger, MD. “I like to use Kybella on those who have either minimal amounts of fat or large pockets of fat that are so deep that something like CoolSculpting, which freezes the fat, can’t get all the way down to the bottom zone. Or, we can start with CoolSculpting first (on the chin) and segue into using Kybella if there is still some lingering fat after a few sessions.”

This mother of two wanted to get rid of extra fat on her lower abdomen and flanks. Grand Rapids, MI, plastic surgeon Bradley Bengtson, MD, performed two sessions of CoolSculpting to flatten her stomach.

CoolSculpting: The Fat Freezer It may have once sounded like a pipe dream, but the fact that cold can be used to literally freeze unwanted fat cells to death is now a reality. In order for a CoolSculpting treatment to be administered—it can last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour or more—there needs to be enough fat to pinch. Dr. Youn says that because the treatment, like other fat reducers, is not for weight loss, it’s best for those who are at a reasonable weight with stubborn fat. A pad is placed over the area to be treated and then the fat is sucked up into a handpiece—the fatty area will go numb about eight minutes into the treatment so any discomfort isn’t really felt during the procedure. “CoolSculpting actually freezes the fat cells, causing them to die and then be naturally eliminated by the body’s filtration system within a few months. In the end, you have up to 25 percent fat reduction in treated areas,” says Dr. Preminger. You may feel some tenderness, redness, swelling and bloating, which is all normal post-treatment and should subside within the first few weeks. “Like all other types of fat melters, the results are long-lasting, if not permanent,” says Dr. Schlessinger. “That is, unless, you go on a Twinkies diet. As long as you are cautious with diet and exercise, the fat should not come back.”

THE COMMON GROUND AMONG FAT MELTERS “Today, we have a vast array of noninvasive options in terms of different energies that can be applied to fat cells to kill them or release the lipid components. There are different ways to do it, too. But, the one thing that’s similar regardless of the technology, is that all of these are done through the skin.” —Dr. Francis

SculpSure: The Fastest Fat Zapper

GLOW CUISINE/GETTY IMAGES

Using a laser to eliminate unwanted fat, SculpSure is a 25-minute procedure (per area) that treats just the fat and doesn’t interfere with the surrounding nerves, tissue or skin. “The biggest point of difference is that SculpSure uses lasers to target fat cells,” says Dr. Youn. “It appears to have similar results to CoolSculpting in terms of thickness of fat that is reduced, but it doesn’t take nearly as long to perform a session.” Some areas, like the flanks, can be a little painful during the procedure—you’ll feel pinching and warmth. “That’s because some parts of the body, like the abdomen and flanks, are more sensitive than others and can feel heat differently than another body part,” adds Dr. Youn. But as soon as the treatment ends, any discomfort will subside. Just like other fat melters, SculpSure can also leave the treated area feeling a little bloated or hard to the touch. You can expect to see results in about two months.

Skokie, IL, plastic surgeon Patricia DePoli, MD, performed SculpSure on the upper and lower abdomen of this patient to reduce fat deposits that were resistant to regular exercise and a healthy diet.


discovery. THE BIGGEST LIPOSUCTION MYTH SET STRAIGHT SURGERY

The Surgical Option LIPOSUCTION IS A TIME-TESTED PROCEDURE THAT GARNERS DRAMATIC RESULTS, WHICH IS WHY IT CONTINUES TO RANK AS ONE OF THE TOP SURGERIES.

Liposuction Liposuction can permanently remove pockets of unwanted fat and give the body a more contoured look, which is why the procedure continues to be one of the most in-demand surgeries. “Liposuction is popular because of the potentially dramatic results that can be obtained, which are much more dramatic than those achieved with nonsurgical devices,” says Dr. Youn. Unlike other types of fat eliminators, liposuction is the only procedure available that physically removes the fat cells (they are suctioned out, not heated, frozen or destroyed with energy)—once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. In terms of fat removal, liposuction works best when you’re pretty much at, or near, your ideal weight and have elastic skin and pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. When it seems like nothing will make that fat budge, liposuction may be the answer to the problem. But, as almost any plastic surgeon will tell you, liposuction is not a quick fix for weight loss, nor should it be done as an attempt to drop massive amounts of unwanted weight. “Diet and exercise are certainly the best ways to work off any extra weight, but sometimes that can be difficult. When those do not work, liposuction can be performed, which I believe produces the best and most consistent results in terms of body contouring,” says Dr. Mariotti. Also, the scar left behind is smaller than you think—it’s just a few millimeters and easy to hide under bathing suits and clothes.

1 0 6 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

What type of lipo to get? There are different types of liposuction available (they are all basically variations of the standard procedure) and your doctor may recommend a special type. For example, Smartlipo uses a laser to liquefy the fat before it’s suctioned out, which is said to make the fat removal process easier with a faster recovery period. But not all doctors agree that different types of liposuction offer different results. “Most studies that compare laser liposuction to other types have shown almost no difference in the outcome or degree of bruising and swelling,” says Dr. Singer, who adds that what is far more important is the training and artistry of the doctor performing the procedure and understanding that not every patient is a good candidate for it. ○ WHO IT’S GOOD FOR:

Anyone who is pretty close to their goal weight with elastic skin and some areas of fat that just don’t go away despite eating healthy and exercising

○ WHAT IT’S GOOD FOR:

Permanently removing fat, contouring the body and spot-treating fatty pockets

○ WHAT IT’S NOT GOOD FOR:

Weight loss and those with loose skin

After losing 45 pounds, this patient wasn’t happy with how her stomach looked. Duxbury, MA, plastic surgeon Christine Hamori, MD, performed liposuction on her waist, as well as a tummy tuck, for a contoured look.

One of the biggest concerns patients have with liposuction is whether or not the fat will return once it’s removed. “There was a study years ago that appeared to show that fat removed from one part of the body via liposuction ended up returning in other parts of the body. Other studies have refuted this idea and revealed that fat removed by liposuction doesn’t automatically return to another location,” says Dr. Youn. While the amount of fat cells in the body is predetermined, no new fat cells appear post surgery. But, if weight is gained, the existing fat cells can swell, but the fat will not return to the area that was treated.

YOU’VE LOST THE WEIGHT— NOW WHAT? You dedicated yourself to a strict diet, countless hours in the gym and perhaps even a treatment at your doctor’s office, and you finally got the scale to budge. For some, there may be a residual effect to weight loss that comes in the form of loose skin that won’t snap back into place. And that’s where procedures like a breast lift, tummy tuck or bodylift come into play. “If there’s excess skin and excess fat, then something like a tummy tuck can be done to address both in a single session,” says Dr. Francis. If you’ve lost the weight on your own and are left with extra skin, a skin-excision procedure can also be done.

Surgery can do wonders for your body, but it can also leave behind small scars that can be hard to minimize. Using a product that reduces the look of fresh scars, like embrace Active Scar Defense, helps to reduce tension on the skin as it heals so that scars are flatter, smoother and less red.

If your weight, particularly in your stomach, fluctuates throughout the day, you’re probably dealing with a bloated belly as opposed to fat. Anything from what you eat and bowel movements to menstrual cycles and even the time of day, can cause your body to bloat. “Bloating, which is excess fluid or gas, often changes throughout the course of the day, while abdominal fat does not,” says Dr. Mariotti.

IF IT’S FAT...

Fat can be easily pinched and grabbed—bloated areas cannot. Pockets of fat consistently remain the same in terms of appearance and don’t vary from day to day or week to week unless fat is lost.

THE ANTI-AGING APPROACH “I know a lot of different women who approach aging from every different way. I have a friend who decided to go gray. I have some friends that will do anything, like they are fighting the hard fight.”

“The one thing my body does like and need that I would never deprive it of is chocolate. I love dark chocolate, but I don’t have a ton of it. I’ll break off a square.”

BEEN THERE, D O N E T H AT “I’ve had my makeup and hair done and been dressed so many times that it’s like when I’m not doing that I don’t want to be thinking about all of that.”

For former supermodel Cindy Crawford, she’s come to terms with the fact that she’s 50—and all that comes along with it—and that she’ll never look like she’s 20, again. And she’s totally fine with it. “No matter what I do, I’m not going to look 20, or 30. I just want to look great for 50. I exercise, eat healthy and take really good care of my skin. There’s pressure on women to do the undoable, which is not age. But it’s about looking great for however old you are, regardless of what that number is.” It’s pretty hard not to say that Crawford isn’t the best version of herself today, or any day. One of the original supermodels of the 1990s, Crawford, who was discovered at the age of 16 and would later trade her dreams of being a chemical engineer for owning the runway, may still be considered one of the most beautiful women to ever live. But she didn’t grow up with any beauty knowledge, especially for the world of glossy covers, big brand endorsements and endless catwalk struts that she was about to infringe upon and take over. “My mother did not wear makeup. She got married when she was 16 and my dad did not like makeup. She wasn’t a beauty role model for me, but she was a role model in so many other ways. I admire all that my mom made it

I would have to get up really early to wash my hair, dry it, put the curlers in and let them cool off to end up with that bouncy, ‘Breck girl’ hair.” But hot rollers and an empty makeup bag won’t get you far in the world of big makeup and even bigger hair, as these are the staple ingredients in the recipe for a model in the making. “I remember one of my first modeling jobs, where I had to do my own hair and makeup. I didn’t wear makeup, I didn’t know how to do makeup and I didn’t even own any makeup. I had to go out and buy it all. The job was with Iman and Dianne deWitt and I remember being in the mirror trying to watch and emulate what they were doing, but those girls can paint! The picture was hilarious because I literally look 12 years old.”

UP CLOSE AND CANDID She definitely honed her beauty skills along the way, working alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, like Sonia Kashuk, Kevyn Aucoin, Oribe and Peter Savic, to name a few. And now, Crawford’s 15-year-old daughter, emerging model Kaia Gerber (she’s the spitting image of her mom), has her mother’s experience and beauty knowledge to help her along the way. “I think, like anything, there are pros and cons to having been in the industry. There’s something about being hired as a model that makes you think, ‘Well, I must look somewhat good because I’m getting booked,’ because girls can be completely insecure and most women have a streak of that as well,” she says. “But, on the other hand, I remember feeling (in my 20s) that it was only after two hours of hair and makeup that I looked like that. To be Cindy Crawford, the object, that was the creation of a team of hair and makeup and stylists, which can mess with you a bit. If you’re not all done up, you don’t feel the same confidence that you do when people are telling you, ‘You look amazing.’” What women see as perfection isn’t what a model wakes up as. It’s almost a false sense of reality that can rarely, if ever, be achieved.

SIZE DOESN’T M AT T E R “I don’t think my body looks different now versus then. Even though I might be the same size, things fit me quite differently.”

She may be one of the most recognized supermodels, but even Crawford had her fair share of dating mishaps. “I remember going on a date, and my date thought he was meeting Cindy Crawford the Cosmo cover model. When I opened the door, I was just Cindy Crawford the girl. It could be that it was just my own insecurity, but I felt that moment of disappointment, like she’s not the walking, talking Cosmo cover. She’s a real woman.” Crawford ended up marrying entrepreneur Rande Gerber (she also had a short-lived marriage to actor Richard Gere in the early 1990s). While there are many things she loves about Rande, one of her favorites is that he thinks she looks the most beautiful when she wakes up in the morning, fresh-faced and all. “It’s not necessarily how I see myself, but it is nice having that from your spouse because I don’t feel like I have to become Cindy Crawford for him.” The countless hours of hair and makeup that transform the working mom and wife into the dolled-up supermodel, don’t need to take place on a daily basis. Her modeling days afforded her many life lessons and encounters—she catapulted herself from a model to a brand empire—which she may not have experienced had she chosen a different path. “Being in the beauty business at a young age allowed me to start really taking care of my skin. I had access to information and doctors—that’s how I met Dr. Sebagh, through a makeup artist,” she says. Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh is Crawford’s Parisian anti-aging guru who specializes in nonsurgical treatments. “I was going to Paris and I was told that I had to see Dr. Sebagh. All I kept thinking was, ‘Why, I’ll be 28?’ My friend explained to me that he was doing these vitamin cocktails, like mesotherapy. I didn’t know what mesotherapy was or anything about it.” She confesses that until she went for newbeauty.com / Winter • Spring 2017 / N E W B E A U T Y / 1 1 1

her first visit, her skin-care routine consisted of sunscreen, and that was it. “Modeling took a toll on my skin. I finally went to see him and he did a treatment on me. I didn’t even realize my skin was so dull until he brought it back to life. It was like a lightbulb went off in my head because I instantly saw my skin wake up.” She became hooked on his magical potions and antioxidant concoctions, traveling to Paris to have her skin treated whenever she could. “Every time I would see Dr. Sebagh, I would say the same thing, ‘Can’t you just bottle this stuff up?’ So we started talking about doing a skin-care line together. When I was 35, my Revlon contract was up for renewal and it seemed like the right time to create the line. And that’s how Meaningful Beauty was born.” When it comes to changes in her face, she says that while it has become much thinner, her skin texture has also changed. “Everyone thinks about your face and the actual texture of the skin. But Dr. Sebagh always talks about how skin ages in three different ways, and the first one I saw was a change in volume,” she says. “I have a very round face, and over the years, it’s like all of a sudden, I’ve got serious cheekbones that can make my face look severe if I’m not careful. My face doesn’t have a lot of lines yet because I really take care of my skin. In some ways, I have more confidence about my skin at 50 then I did in my 20s.” Like Crawford, Meaningful Beauty has evolved over the years to become what it is today. “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve thought, ‘I can’t wait to put something in that does a little filling or a little lifting.’ My fans look to me to share what I’ve learned. They’re getting older with me, so they’re experiencing the same things I am.” Living your life in the spotlight, unfortunately comes along with unwarranted criticism about growing older. While some of us can’t accept the aging process, Crawford knows exactly where she stands. “I don’t need everyone on Instagram pointing out that I don’t look the same way I did when I was 20. I know that. Sometimes when you’re in the public eye, it can be hard, and that’s where you kind of have to work on yourself.” Like any woman who has her own insecurities, so does one of the most stunning women on the planet. In her younger years, Crawford hid behind concealer due to darkness under her eyes. “I still have deep-set eyes, but they’re not as dark under there—partly because of Meaningful Beauty and partly just because of the way my face has aged. But I’ve wanted to embrace it a little bit more, like that’s my face. I definitely have gaunter cheeks now, but I can

accept that because I can say, ‘Look at what I’ve experienced.’” Dark circles aren’t the only thing that troubled her. “When I was younger, I would have said I wasn’t—and I’m still not—super skinny. So if you had asked me in my 20s what my biggest beauty struggle was, it would have been to make sure I fit in the clothes as a model. But I’ve changed my lifestyle, so I know which foods to avoid, and I also exercise, so it’s not a struggle anymore.” She also says that the births of her children (Kaia, and son Presley) helped her appreciate her body. “Your body is there for a reason, and to think I grew another life in my body, that’s amazing. So if it comes with stretch marks, who cares,” she says. While we may have an idea in our heads of what an older version of ourselves will look like regardless of what we do to intervene, there’s one thing Crawford says she had no idea she would experience. “Some things you expect,

“The 50-year-old Cindy would tell the 30-year-old Cindy not to be so hard on herself.” like gray hair. But what I wasn’t expecting was the texture of my hair to change so much,” she reveals. “It’s gotten much coarser over the years. I look at my daughter and I’m always like, ‘You have my old hair and I want it back!’ Her hair looks great even if she goes to sleep with it wet. She wakes up in the morning and it’s just like perfect and I’m jealous of that.” Despite the metamorphosis she’s seen, she hasn’t let it get the best of her. “I think the sanest way to age is to accept it.” Crawford incorporates some form of exercise into her day, be it 30 minutes of cardio, reformer Pilates, a gym workout with her trainer, hiking, bike riding or weight training. “I started learning about fitness and nutrition at a young enough age that it became my lifestyle. It would have been hard to change my diet at 50. I’m grateful I started good habits when I was young. Do my jeans fit exactly the way they did 20 years ago? No. But it’s not a daily struggle for me to not gain weight.” For as much as she has adapted to who she is today and all that she’s learned along the way, Crawford’s biggest message to women is to not

be hard on yourself, especially when it comes to growing older. The pressure we put on ourselves—we all do it to some degree—to constantly look perfect and ageless isn’t what we should be doing. “The 50-year-old Cindy would tell the 30-year-old Cindy not to be so hard on herself. And, probably and hopefully, the 75-year-old Cindy would for sure be saying that to me. So I should get the message soon!” While only she can change her outlook on aging and beauty, perhaps she can set a new trend and lead by example. “My focus is on accepting the inevitable part of aging while trying to feel good, be grateful for good health and enjoy being 50. I loved Nora Ephron’s book, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman. I love when she says, ‘If you’re under the age of 35, put on a bikini and don’t take it off.’ No matter what you felt about your body at 30, at 50, you’re going to be like, ‘Ugh, if only I wasn’t so hard on myself.’ So when I’m 70 and 80, I’m probably going to look back and ask what was I being so hard on myself for. I think if my approach was to be less hard on myself, then maybe the world will follow it, too!” newbeauty.com / Winter • Spring 2017 / N E W B E A U T Y / 1 1 3

WHY STRE SS IS

DIFFERENT NOW

Naturopathica founder and CEO Barbara Close says that for any conversation on stress, it’s important to look at not just what is stressing us out, but also how our ability to adapt to it has changed. “Over the past few years, we’ve seen a shift in our clients and our communities. As a society, we’re becoming more fragile and less adaptable to stressors in our lives, contributing to a range of stress-related symptoms.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 11 percent of

Americans take anti-depressant medications, which is a 400 percent increase from the 1980s. Why is that? Close says we’re being caught in an epidemic of distraction. “Constant connectivity distracts from introspective thought. Plus, our human bonds have weakened through the filters of Instagram and Emoji-filled text messages, making us less connected to ourselves and our emotional health. This disconnect makes us fragile and ill-equipped to handle stress.”

the tech connection Every expert we spoke to for this story blames one cause for elevated stress levels: technology. “These days, technology has brought us into closer connection across the globe, but many of us are slaves to it. We can’t pry our eyes off our phone or email for more than a few minutes at a time, meaning that people are emailing each other until all hours of the night, perpetuating work stress,” says MNDFL’s Lodro Rinzler, who adds that he recommends not even sleeping in the same room as your phone, laptop or computer. “It’s stress from so many emails that

has most of our clients coming in the door for the first time. We’re seeing more people gravitating toward meditation as a way to disconnect from the habitual way we relate to stress and try something that allows the body and mind, for even 10 minutes a day, to begin to relax.”

the time factor It’s this pressure for constant immediacy and urgency, that wellness expert and founder of the eponymous line, Indie Lee, says is what is taking people to the edge, and many of us only have ourselves to blame. “We are turned on nonstop, around the clock. We are expected to answer an email an hour after we receive it—are you kidding? We put a huge amount of stress, at times unneeded, on ourselves with all of this urgency. Technological advances that are supposed to make our lives easier are actually adding significant stress. I also think that social media has created a huge amount of pressure around taking the perfect shot or portraying a moment in time just the right way. We’re then comparatively posting images to portray an equally or more perfect image (literally and figuratively), which can be very stressful!”

Did You Know? According to Close, some of the most common “stress-related” symptoms she sees are aging skin, migraines, musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and even autoimmune diseases.


the change in how we tackle stress “In the 1950s, if you told someone you were going for a run, they would ask who was chasing you,” Rinzler says. “Physical fitness wasn’t as big a thing then as it is now, but we know now that we need to take care of our bodies in order to live happier, more functional lives.” What’s more, Close explains, is that coping with 21st-century stress requires 21st-century wellness—what she defines as a proactive and empowered approach to overall well-being. “It’s all about being focused on hitting the ‘pause’ button.” SOLUTION

new treatments to try

Sure, massage, skin care and baths have been major players for stress reduction for some time, but Burrows says she’s seen a huge surge in entire facilities dedicated to meditation, infrared saunas, salt therapy, float tanks and LED light beds. “There are all sorts of interesting businesses popping up around New York to help counterbalance the stress of city life. It’s exciting that we’re living at a time where input is becoming just as important as output.” And even if you don’t live in a big city, Lee says, in her opinion, that there are plenty of places to find these “new” treatments that deliver old trends with a modern twist. “The industry is going back to its roots. Many of the new techniques coming into spas and onto the market are promoting wellness in a way we haven’t seen traditionally, and they go way beyond the standard massage or spa experience.”

What it is: Also known as salt therapy,

this homeopathic remedy shows up as full-on salt caves or salt-lined walls. How it helps with stress: The benefits are vast; breathing in the salt is said to do everything from calm the mind to help with respiratory issues.

INFRARED SAUNAS

What it is: A twist on the typical sauna,

this version utilizes special heaters that generate infrared rays. How it helps with stress: “Sweating it out” is always good for stress; this option takes it up a notch and claims to help detoxify and heal the body.

FLOTATION THERAPY

What it is: You basically enter a tank

or room where you float in warm water, salt, darkness and silence. How it helps with stress: The sensory reduction is thought to help the mind totally unplug and meditate and help you reach a greater level of relaxation.

LED LIGHT BEDS

What it is: LED light has long been

known in the skin-care world for its benefits; now, full-body beds aimed at total wellness are becoming popular. How it helps with stress: Think of it sort of like how the sun helps your mood; the LED lights are thought to help boost the senses.

a big moment for meditation Rinzler says we are now seeing the same wellness arc in terms of people trying out and seeing the radical benefits of a regular meditation practice, and the popularity has much to do with science. “So while us Buddhists have known for 2,600 years that meditation reduces stress, boosts productivity and allows us to live fuller, more joyful lives, it’s nice that all of this science has come out in the last decade to prove it.”

Let’s face the un-Zen truth:

Being able to sit still and watch your thoughts takes a lot of practice, and after a few sessions, most of us give up because it feels too difficult. But if you ease yourself into enlightenment, you’re more likely to stay on the cushion. These simple tips will help you clear your mind and tune into a higher vibe. Breathe easy. Before you close your eyes, check in with your breath and notice if it’s shallow. Try to inhale from your abdomen instead of your chest. As you settle into a deeper breathing cycle, your mind will naturally slow down, helping you to find more inner stillness. Remember there’s nothing to do. Meditating isn’t about accomplishing anything. The aim is simply to observe what’s happening and create a little space between you and your reactions. Ease up on the pressure you’re putting on yourself!

MINDFULNESS GOES MAINSTREAM According to Anne Parker, wellness counselor at Miraval Resort & Spa, the mindfulness “trend” is certainly important and not accidental. “The fact that an ancient practice found in many traditions and cultures is becoming mainstream speaks to the need we all have to consciously disengage from what is distracting us and choose to focus on what nourishes us. We need to focus on what truly makes us more productive and helps us to thrive.”

A TWIST ON TREATMENTS Parker does point out that not everyone is 100-percent comfortable with meditating, but there are other similar options that can help anyone quiet their mind. “Coloring books and other enjoyable activities will continue to be popular resources as we learn to value fun and creative endeavors as critical to our overall well-being. The investment of time, attention and energy we make into activities that nurture fun and creativity also support productivity, effective problem-solving and healthier relationships. Spa-related activities and treatments that nourish us, revive and realign energy, and take us out of our mental ‘autopilot,’ are the ones that will continue to be popular. It’s not just about relaxing; it’s also about re-nourishing and replenishing.”

1 1 8 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com

THE SPA CONNECTION In some sense, people who love spas tend to love meditation because they both support relaxation. “Now, you can even learn meditation techniques through spa partnerships, which allow you to take your meditation practice home with you after you’ve left the spa,” Burrows says. “The breath is the portable meditation device, and we can always access it.” Close, whose New York spa also has a Sensory & Meditation Lounge, says this is one trend she doesn’t see going away anytime soon, and people are almost treating going to the meditation center like going to the gym. You could do it at home, but there’s something more powerful about scheduling it into your day and doing it as part of a community. “It keeps growing in popularity and continues to boast scientific benefits because it’s focused on training the mind to be quiet and giving yourself time away from distraction to restore from within. The busiest people in the world are finding 30 minutes in their days to meditate because they see improvements in productivity.”

Sit up straight. Your body’s alignment has a huge influence on your emotional and mental state and how energy flows through you. Balance your head evenly on your neck, with your shoulders relaxed at your side and your hands in your lap, left on top of the right, palms facing upward. Set an intention. Having an aim helps with everything in life. If you know why you want to meditate, it can support your effort and bring a new energy into the picture. Before you start meditating, remind yourself of what you’re wishing for from the experience and then let it go, like tossing a penny into a fountain. In time, you’ll see your wish begin to come true.

STRESS-RELIEVING TIPS T O D O E V E RY DAY Feeling fried, frazzled and like you may not be too far from the edge? Meditation experts Joel Granik and Jackie Itzkowitz, cofounders of Floating Lotus in New York, say that beyond taking deep breaths, there are some other really simple ways to center yourself—stat. The best part? You can do them while you are sitting at your desk.

4 MEDITATE.

1 PUT DOWN THE COFFEE.

This might not be that easy for those of us who need a caffeine fix, but the duo says you’ll see a big difference when you start swapping your daily cup for water with lemon, especially during the midday hours. “This helps hydrate your body while raising its pH level so you won’t feel so sluggish.”

2 OPEN THE BLINDS.

Artificial light can actually drain your energy. Letting in some natural light helps increase energy and improve attention span.

3 GO FOR A FLOAT DURING YOUR LUNCH HOUR.

This one is admittedly not that logistically easy for everyone, but any type of lunchtime break (even a quick walk outside), can help bring you back to balance. “By letting your body and mind relax and declutter, you’ll go back to work more refreshed and focused. If you’re not near a float center, try yoga, which emphasizes mindfulness.”

Even if you aren’t an expert, you can easily do the practice at your desk by closing your eyes and focusing on your breath. “Breathe in slowly, hold it in for five seconds and then exhale as slowly as possible. Repeat until you feel like your mind is centered and present.”

5 TRY ACUPUNCTURE.

This one can also improve concentration, and you don’t necessarily have to see an acupuncturist. Just massage these points gently. The third eye point: Located directly between your eyebrows, press this point gently for three to four minutes to help clear your mind. The sun point: Found in the depression of the temples, place two fingers on your temples and apply slight pressure for two minutes to relieve headache, dizziness and mental stress. The gate of consciousness: This area hits below the base of your skull. Put both hands on your head, fingers apart, with your thumbs right above your neck about three inches apart. Press gently for two to three minutes to feel more relaxed.

It’s not uncommon for your nose to experience some major changes with the aging process. Chicago facial plastic surgeon Gary Wiesman, MD, explains that over time, nasal tissue begins to atrophy and some of the internal structures of the nose can soften, too. “As the face itself starts to appear like it’s shrinking inward, the nose can begin to look larger and wider,” he says. “Also, the tip of the nose can start to droop.” While injectables and fillers can be used in some patients to create the illusion of a smaller nose or to slightly lift the tip, if you’re looking for long-term results, you’ll need to seek nasal surgery. “With a rhinoplasty, we can totally reconstruct the nose and add cartilage to give it support. Or, if needed, we can shorten the tip so that it better fits the face.”

AS WE GET OLDER, WE LOSE THAT ANGLE, CAUSING DEFINITION TO BE LOST.

ALESSANDRA BENEDETTI-CORBIS/GETTY IMAGES

The key to a youthful jawline is, according to Chicago plastic surgeon Irvin Michael Wiesman, MD, one that’s sharp with a right angle from the jaw to the neck. “As we age, we lose that angle and definition. Once the skin and tissue start to drop, you get jowling and the jaw takes on an S-shaped curve.” To treat it, Dr. Wiesman says you need to look at your jaw and neck. “The pre-jowl area can be softened with filler. If there is some tissue descent, a skin tightener can give subtle tightening,” he adds. But when extremely loose skin and severe jowls are the problem, surgery is the only fix. “If we are correcting just the jawline, a mini-facelift is an option. But when there is sagging and tissue descent in the neck, a full facelift or necklift, which reinstates and repositions the jawline and neck to make them tighter, is necessary.”


Bright Eyes

JENNIFER GA R N E R, 4 4 Once your eyes start to experience the effects of aging, they can look tired. According to New York facial plastic surgeon Konstantin Vasyukevich, MD, excessive skin that folds over the upper lids, bags under the lower lids, or loose skin that sits under the eyes, all give the face an aged look. While the shape and size of your eyes do not change, it’s changes to your eyelids, forehead and upper cheeks that affect their appearance. “The eyes begin to look rounder, smaller and less almond-shaped, as well as hollow and less expressive,” explains Dr. Vasyukevich. Keeping the skin around your eyes well moisturized is crucial because it keeps the area smooth and elastic. But, when bags, dark circles, lines and wrinkles are issues, injectables can reverse them. “Botox softens the pull of the muscles to minimize the formation of wrinkles,” says Dr. Vasyukevich.

Bold Brows KEIRA K N I G H T L E Y, 31 Unlike other parts of the face that can’t be “preserved” with preventive measures, the eyebrows can. Dr. Irvin Wiesman says that in your 20s and 30s you should start using Botox Cosmetic to help mitigate the amount of drooping that your brows typically experience with age. “The simplest thing to improve the look of the brows is to have Botox injected to lift up the tail and middle area of the brow. Heavy-looking brows create tired-looking eyes. But, when the brow peaks one-third of the way in and there’s a nice arch to it, the eyes look fresh and open.” While there’s only so much lifting that Botox Cosmetic can do (the results only last a few months, too, so you’ll need to keep up with the treatment), a surgical browlift is also an option. “If you need long-term improvement or there is a lot of hooding on your upper eyelid along with a sagging brow, then surgery may be your best bet.”

THE FIRST SIGN OF AGING LIPS IS VERTICAL LINES OVER THE RED PART OF THE LIPS.

“The lips become aged due to a loss of tone and volume. It’s a gradual process that begins in the 30s,” says Dr. Vasyukevich. “The first sign of aging lips is vertical lines over the red part of the lips, which signals volume loss. The shape or size of the lips isn’t affected at this point, but the lips can appear less plump.” As the lips continue to age, lines become deeper and definition is lost. “Once significant volume loss occurs, hyaluronic acid fillers need to be used to rejuvenate the lips,” explains Dr. Vasyukevich. To prevent your lips from looking “done,” ensure your doctor doesn’t overfill them and add to much volume. “The overinjected look comes from excessive volume or injecting large amounts of filler up to the outside border of the lips,” he adds.

BLUE LAGOON I C E L A N D — No trip to Iceland is complete without a stop and soak at the famous Blue Lagoon. Locals treat the lava field–surrounded spa like a regular visit to the town’s pool; out-of-towners take one step inside and can’t believe they’re still on this planet (it is one of the wonders of the world after all). No matter your perception, there’s no denying the therapeutic powers of the milky-blue, skin-softening geothermal waters, which are simply magical whether you stay all day or go for a quick dip.

WHEN TO GO In recent years, the lagoon has become a destination (it’s pretty much the most popular in the country), and it can get crowded. It’s smart to pre-book on bluelagoon.com, which helps the destination keep an even flow of visitors.

WHO TO ASK FOR You can relax on your own if you want, but there is a spa manager and plenty of attendants who can help answer questions and guide you in the right direction.

WHAT TO GET The VIP Luxury experience. It not only covers entrance into the lagoon, but also includes a lounge with views, a fireplace and a private changing room.

REVITALIZE AND REFRESH

Moroccanoil Body™ products merge with the unique experience of Kohler’s Vichy showers in the new 50-minute Moroccan Ritual treatment. The in-spa version is truly transformational: a traditional Shirodhara hair treatment, shampooing and conditioning of the hair, a cool stone facial massage and balancing chakra stones. Recreate this indulgent, relaxing experience at home with these four stellar picks.

INSIDE TIP Place two to three drops into hands and massage into exfoliated, clean, dry skin for a silky sheen.

THE MAGIC DROPS This major multitasker—it can be used on the face, body, nails and hair—glides onto skin like silk and absorbs quickly for a head-to-toe hydrating indulgence. Another big benefit: It is fragrance-free, so you can add a few drops to other products, like a moisturizer, to make them more potent and completely customized.

NEW BALANCING MOROCCAN RITUAL (50 MINUTES: $170)

Be revitalized, refreshed and relaxed by this luxurious journey. A Body Buff scrub will begin your treatment in a choice of Moroccanoil Fragrance Originale or Fleur de Rose. While under the warm Vichy shower, you will receive a traditional Shirodhara hair treatment, shampooing and conditioning of the hair, and a cool stone facial massage. A luxurious application of moisturizing Body Soufflé and an optional Shimmering Body Oil, along with the placement of chakra stones and chakra massaging techniques, cap off this balancing, blissful ritual.

One of the spa’s most unique features is its one-of-a-kind, Kohler custom Vichy shower, which can only be found at Kohler Waters Spa. Not only is the design aesthetically pleasing, but the shower also creates an incredible hydrotherapy experience.

The cutting-edge spa offerings rely on both time-tested techniques and modern technology (don’t forget, this is the brand that brought us top-notch Kohler bath products). Whether you receive a service, relax in the pool or just listen to the rhythm of the waterfall, the focal point is water.

In addition to the pool, the respite rooms have hot tubs and cool plunges, while the rooftop deck provides a haven for more relaxation—via water, of course.

KOHLER WATERS SPA KOHLER, WI

From hydrotherapy pools and Vichy showers to unique acoustic baths with underwater music and vibration, Kohler Waters Spa is the destination to experience the healing power of water in a five-star setting.


relax. MAYFLOWER GRACE CONNECTICUT — It’s not that far of a drive from New York, but this stately retreat feels like it’s a million miles away from reality (it’s even rumored that the town it is located in was the inspiration for where Gilmore Girls was set). The food is amazing, the boutique hotel rooms are unmatched and the spa is a spacious enclave where guests can get the most specialized treatments or simply lounge for hours in one of the oversized stuffed chairs. There’s also a big focus on nature—the hotel is right next door to a reserve—and outdoor activities that switch out with the seasons (think snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, kayaking and fly-fishing).

WHEN TO GO This is definitely a popular weekend destination; if you can spare to get away during the week, you will have more of the spa to yourself.

1 3 2 / N E W B E A U T Y / Winter • Spring 2017 / newbeauty.com


WHO TO ASK FOR All of the therapists at the spa are seasoned pros and available to answer any and all questions (there’s a one-onone, sit-down conversation as soon as you step foot inside). If you want to plan which treatment to get beforehand, the spa encourages you to call ahead.

THE INSTANT FIX DRY BODY OIL

Sporting the signature Moroccanoil scent and a powerful trio of argan, olive and avocado oils, this answer to instant moisture creates soft, silky skin. The lightweight, easy-to-absorb formula locks in moisture as it helps improve overall skin texture and tone.

WHAT TO GET The new offering of sound healing. Incorporating Tibetan Bowls, breath work and meditation, simply listening to the healing tools is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating.

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF IT Leave one day for just the spa and one day for the outdoor activities. There’s a ton of options and all of them will have you leaving the property a lot more tranquil than when you arrived.

INSIDE TIP Spray a thin layer directly onto skin immediately after showering. SPONSORED


THE ULTIMATE SKIN SOOTHER INTENSE HYDRATING TREATMENT

Fragranced with the delicately sweet aroma of honey lavender, this argan oil–infused treatment can be used as a massage oil or added to the bath to transform even the driest skin. The moisturizing, oil-gel formula melts into skin instantly to help improve its texture and tone.

BANYAN TREE LĂNG CÔ V I E T NA M — Every villa has a pool, every inch of the property has a view and everything you do at this resort—in true Banyan Tree fashion—just feels luxurious. There’s a lot to do on-property and there’s lot to explore in the local area, but, as area general manager Michal Zitek says, there’s also a full staff of people on call if you want to just make it a place where you go to “sit back and relax.”

WHEN TO GO There’s never a bad time to go, but this is a popular place for meetings and events, so sometimes certain areas (like the golf course) are not available. It’s best to call ahead before booking to get any blackout dates.

INSIDE TIP Add to the bath along with your favorite essential oil for a richly hydrating soak. SPONSORED

WHO TO ASK FOR Any of the spa therapists, who are highly trained in not only the therapies they give, but also in preparing ingredients and the healing properties of oils, spices and herbs.

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF IT There are many specialized packages available based on the time of year you go (and several of them include spa treatments).

WHAT TO GET The Royal Banyan. It’s the spa’s signature and involves an herbal massage and the very unique “Jade Face” therapy.

THE RADIANCE BOOSTER

SHIMMERING BODY OIL

The perfect amount of shimmer for lackluster skin, this nourishing blend of antioxidant-rich argan oil, hydrating sesame oil and soft pearlescent minerals creates the most radiant and natural-looking (yet never overly sparkly), sheen with the tiniest amount.

INSIDE TIP Lightly massage a few drops of oil directly into the skin using even motions. SPONSORED

THE OBEROI UDAIVILAS, UDAIPUR I N D I A — Regality and relaxation meet at this exquisite luxury hotel that’s known for its beauty, attention to detail and very tuned-in staff. There are sunset boat rides on the lake, lush gardens, nearby wildlife, and a spa that guests describe as “life-changing.” Whatever you do, you are guaranteed to have an experience you will never forget.

WHEN TO GO It does get rather hot here in the summers and that’s also monsoon season here. Winter is decidedly mild and comfortable.

WHAT TO GET The spa specializes in Ayurveda and offers everything from three-hour sessions to shorter, 30-minute “enhancers.”

INSIDER INFORMATION

KEY INGREDIENT SPECIAL INDEX

FROM REFRIGERATOR STAPLES TO MOLECULES THAT HAVE YET TO LEAVE THE LAB, THESE ARE THE BIGGEST INGREDIENTS TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON THIS SEASON.

1

Give your facial an upgrade with algae. Chock-full of anti-aging benefits, when incorporated into a skin-care routine, algae is said to rejuvenate the skin while also calming the mind. Page 30

2

Fight dry skin with Brazilian buriti oil. Making its way into the limelight, this all-natural ingredient works to prevent dry skin and protect against sun damage. Page 32

3

Impede hair damage with broccoli. Caring for your locks goes beyond the salon. Containing natural oils like brassica seed, the vegetable is now being used to protect hair from heat damage and induce shine. Page 39

4

Replace synthetic ingredients with coconut oil. From cleansing to deeply conditioning, coconut oil has made waves for its multiple uses. The newest way to work it into your beauty routine? Use it to clean your makeup brushes naturally. Page 20

5

Brighten teeth with charcoal. Activated charcoal is praised for its detoxifying properties when used on skin, but did you know it also doubles as a teeth whitener? Page 56

6

7

When dieting, look for healthy fats to boost energy. Although high-fat foods often get a bad rap, foods rich in good-for-you fats like almonds and salmon can help curb bloating and boost energy levels when eaten in moderation. Page 100

8

Stay fuller for longer with fiber. When ingested from natural sources like fruits and vegetables, natural fiber (keep an eye out for functional fiber, which isn’t nearly as beneficial) keeps you feeling full and prevents overeating. Page 100

9

Say good-bye Keep your to oily skin with feeling help from DRM01. smile fresh with green Working at the source tea extract. to drastically reduce oil production in the sebaceous glands, a new molecule called DRM01 is on its way to help those with around-the-clock shiny skin. Page 20

Mint and fluoride do a good job of keeping your breath fresh, but this antioxidantrich extract also packs a serious punch. Page 93

10

Instead of totally ruling out carbs, opt for healthier options like sprouted grains. Sprouted grains and glutenfree offerings that undergo minimal processing are great options when you need a bread fix but you’re trying to keep your weight down. Page 101

11

Rejuvenate your earlobes with hyaluronic acid fillers. From your favorite hydrator to filler, this skin-friendly acid is now being used to firm up sagging and aging earlobes. Page 32


14

index

Ask your doctor about using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to boost collagen. This technique claims to use your own blood to naturally generate more hyaluronic acid, elastin and collagen in your skin for a brighter, more youthful complexion. Page 25

15 12

For better skin overnight, try retinol. Popular in nighttime creams and anti-aging products, this powerhouse ingredient is

praised for its ability to reduce the appearance of large pores, smooth out skin and deliver an overall younger look. Page 58

16

Restore your body’s alkalinity with soil. Before you completely write it off, hear us out. Said to improve mental clarity and sensory processing naturally, soil-based supplements are one of the latest trends you’ll want to get your hands on for a balanced body. Page 29

Hydrate skin with potent oleic acid. It’s the acid that makes ingredients like coconut oil and almond oil so hydrating (it’s abundant in avocados, too), so it’s no wonder why it works wonders on parched complexions. Page 32

13

Use palm oil to help turn back the clock. Rich in tocopherol, which is part of the vitamin E family, this antioxidant-infused oil works to rejuvenate and deeply cleanse skin, as well as hydrate hair. Page 20

17

18

While the leafy greens you get in salads are superhealthy, the artificial sugars and processed ingredients often found in salad dressings can counteract the beneficial elements. Page 100

Revered for their thick texture and therapeutic benefits, balms are currently all over the beauty arena and their origin interestingly stems from something as simple as tree sap centuries ago. Page 84

When trying to lose weight, be cautious of relying solely on salad.

Your favorite go-to beauty balm was inspired by tree sap.

H O LI S TI C H E A LE R
