instant UPGRADES As early as your mid- to late-20s and into your 30s, you may start to notice the very first signs of aging, which are usually subtle but still bothersome. What was once a smooth complexion may now be home to small sunspots, crow’sfeet, dark under-eye circles and uneven texture. Instead of letting the signs of aging get the best of you, take matters into your own hands and correct the changes that you’re seeing—you may even be able to prevent them from progressing as you get older with the proper plan of attack. Ahhh... Crow's Feet! These small fine lines are easy to prevent and even easier to correct. Regular use of a highly moisturizing eye cream helps keep the delicate eye area supple and less prone to lines and wrinkles. To reduce their appearance and prevent new ones from forming, you can get Botox® injections. Under-Eye Bags, Darkness and Puffiness. With age, the area under the eyes becomes dark and puffy. Makeup can help camouflage bags and circles, but injectables and proper skin care can reverse them. Hyaluronic acid fillers can fill in hollows to give the illusion of fewer bags. You’ll also want to use Retin-A and a product with growth factors to thicken thinning skin around the eyes. Another method of treating dark circles is with conservative use of hydroquinone, which may be irritating to some. Chemical peels, or certain types of lasers can also help tighten the under-eye area. Hyperpigmentation. Discolored skin can result from a variety of factors. Protecting your skin from the sun is important, but in-office procedures and prescription-strength ingredients can make a difference, too. When treating sun spots, the first line of defense is almost always hydroquinone, which stops the production of pigment in its tracks.

NASOLABIAL FOLDS Reduce puckered appearance around mouth.

Nasolabial Folds. If you’re starting to notice lines around your mouth that start at the corner of your nose and extend downwards, those are nasolabial folds, which, if not addressed, may worsen with time. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® are best for filling in these lines, especially among women in their late 20s and early 30s. Aging signs can sneak up on you very subtly, so you must be aware and armored with your plan of attack. Stay ahead of the effects of aging and keep them guessing. By waiting until the aging effects are obvious you will also make the change evident. Using a mixture of neurotoxins and fillers can give you an instant update on your age. Along with a good skin care regimen, occasional chemical peels, microdermabrasion and skin tightening lasers will almost guarantee you will keep them guessing!

OBSESSED WITH If a face-lift would be too much for you, yet daily skin products aren’t strong enough for your needs, consider an Obagi® Blue Peel.

It’s called a Blue Peel because… A special blue dye has been added that allows us to monitor the absorption of the active ingredient, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), hence the name Blue Peel. TCA is not absorbed through the skin, so there are no internal toxic effects. It is a slow acting solution that helps remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells, resulting in improved texture and tone of the skin. After years of developing and testing by Dr.

Zein Obagi, the Obagi Blue Peel® is a chemical peel unequaled in the field of aesthetics. It is a time proven method of skin rejuvenation superior to any other medical procedure that provides safety with excellent clinical results. The Obagi Blue Peel® is a very effective procedure to maintain lifelong healthy skin renewal. It is considered a medium depth peel and can be designed to penetrate to the Immediate Reticular Dermis (IRD). Penetration to the IRD dramatically reduces wrinkles and causes skin tightening. The Obagi Blue Peel® removes layers of aged and damaged skin, and promotes the creation of healthy skin. The process smooth’s the surface of your skin,

Arms that keep waving, long after you stopped?

Tumescent liposuction of the arms using microcannulas provides excellent cosmetic results. The arms are one of the areas that consistently yield the highest level of patient satisfaction and happiness. Appropriate Patient Not every person is a good candidate. But for appropriate patients, the results are most

gratifying. Liposuction of the arms is almost exclusively a procedure for women. Exercise of the arms does not reduce the volume of fat located on the arms. Most women do not want arms that appear muscular or masculine. A heavy, bulky arm gives the appearance of obesity, a thinner arm helps to give the appearance of a thinner body.

eating or drinking, or seated at a desk writing, typing or conversing on a telephone. The goal of arm liposuction is 1) to improve a disproportionate appearance of the arm, while maintaining the quality of female beauty, 2) to allow the patient to feel more comfortable and less self-conscious wearing short sleeves while doing every day activities.

Skin Excision Days are Gone Older liposuction techniques would also often include an additional excision of skin from the inner side of the arm with resulting unsightly scars. With tumescent liposuction of the arms using microcannulas, excision of skin is not necessary. Microcannular tumescent liposuction of female arms easily and consistently yields results that are well proportioned and without visible surgical scars.

Dr. Schilling has been able to get very pleasing results for many women who have had this struggle with "jiggly" or "flabby" arms through tumescent liposuction combined with Smartlipo laser liposuction. He removes the unwanted fat with liposuction and follows with the Smartlipo laser to add a tightening effect that will improve over time as the tissue heals.

Cosmetic Goals The aesthetic goal of arm liposuction is for a woman to feel more attractive in social situations while wearing short sleeve clothing. The typical social activities involve standing or walking, sedately sitting at a table while
