filler s

Belotero®—a New and Unique Filler A unique, new dermal filler has just been launched in the uS with a unique name: Belotero ®. named after “La Belle Otero” (Carolina Otero, 1868-1965), a famous european actress and dancer known for her beauty, Belotero‘s own claim to fame is its ability to subtly diffuse into the uppermost layers of the skin without leaving ridges or a bluish discoloration (called the Tyndall effect) which has limited the use of other fillers in some areas, especially the tear trough. This breakth rough is due to the product’s gel matrix which allows it to fill superficial wrinkle lines without disturbi ng the structure of the skin. A good analogy is a dry sponge absorbin g water and swelling without changing its basic structure. Hyaluro nidase, the specific filler in Belotero® , is a molecule which absorbs and holds water like a sponge for months on end, stretchin g out the collapsed wrinkle. Because Belotero® is able to diffuse ever so gently through out the skin’s second layer (which contains the damaged or diminished collagen and elastic tissue), it can be injected inconspicuously higher than any other filler. This means that especially fine lines, such as lipstick and smoker’s lines on the lips, tiny criss-cro ss lines on the cheeks and chin, and sunken tear troughs under the eyes, are more precisel y treatable. with the introduction of Belotero®, those shallow and aggravat ing lines often found on otherwise fine and wrinkle-free skin can be efficiently erased for an average of nine months. in conjunc tion with deeper fillers such as Sculptra® , we now can accomplish what only a scalpel could attempt in the past—a youthfu l facial structure with tighter, brighter skin.

clients to come up with positive solutions. “Simply put, there is no room for negativity at True Body Nutrition,” Rebecca says. “Sharing in the joy of success and the life changing experience of reaching sustainable health goals can sum up the True Body Nutrition experience.” Practicing what she preaches, Rebecca’s pantry and refrigerator exemplify what it means to live nutritiously. Filled with foods such as quinoa, olive and coconut oil, lean meats, fresh fruit and vegetables, free-range eggs, milk, and Greek yogurt, she has instilled healthy eating habits in her family. “I love the fact that my daughter’s favorite thing to eat for dinner is quinoa, salmon and kale,” Rebecca said smiling, “We try to eat as healthy as possible even with a busy lifestyle.” At the Lee house, cooking and dinnertime is a family event. On most weeknights, Rebecca comes home to her husband and daughter cooking together while listening to their favorite music.

”Going against the grain is hard, but social changes are beginning to happen, even though we have a long way to go.”

acceptance, while continuing to work as a dietitian. Although her spare time is limited, Rebecca loves spending time with her husband and daughter. Her hobbies include endurance events along with playing the piano, journaling, blogging and even writing a fiction novel. Rebecca enjoys living on the Northshore with her family because it is close enough to her hometown of New Orleans but still fosters that unique sense of community. The close, supportive and strong network of people is why she enjoys working on this side of the lake. The Northshore, according to Rebecca who has worked with clients from all over, is one of the healthiest areas in the state. “Food is our culture in South Louisiana,” Rebecca says. “Going against the grain is hard, but social changes are beginning to happen, even though we have a long way to go.” Rebecca can help anyone begin their journey to a nutritious life no matter where they may fall on the health scale. True Body Nutrition uses one-on-one counseling to motivate, support and teach clients how to live a healthier lifestyle. Keeping that in mind, her overarching philosophy prevails with every encounter, “Success is measured not in numbers but in discovering your natural potential, your true self.”

them learn how to use those ingredients to avoid waste. In addition to supporting local farmers and companies, shopping locally and seasonally helps her clients consume the highest levels of nutrients available. This is the bedrock principle behind her clean eating program. However, when shopping farmers markets is not a practical option, Rebecca offers other options and ideas for her clients including the use of local produce distribution companies and grocery store tours. Shopping the perimeter of the grocery store for local, seasonal selections is a decent way to achieve a similar goal. Being able to make healthy lifestyle choices independently is ultimately the end goal for her clients. Eating habits are usually instilled early on, depending on experiences as a child. For instance, Rebecca grew up in a healthy household with a garden outside and a home cooked meal every night. Her interests in nutrition started while sitting in her mother’s kitchen, watching and helping her cook. This interest developed into a passion, which advanced into a career of helping others in their own health journey. While some people may believe healthy eating will lack flavor, Rebecca teaches clients how to prepare delicious food that is also nutritious. She will be offering basic and advanced cooking classes for her clients in the near future. With True Body Nutrition, the focus is not just about following a diet. The focus

Northshore, the owner is a veteran in the fields of nutrition and wellness. A registered dietitian for eight years, Rebecca Lee, RDN, LDN aspired to open her own business and her vision has come to life through hard work and dedication. With a background in journalism and nutrition, Rebecca brings a non-traditional perspective to nutritional counseling. “I believe treating health issues such as diabetes and heart disease first with weight loss is more effective than reactively managing these conditions with traditional approaches,” Rebecca says. Beyond her nutritional philosophy that has evolved over time, she uses her well-developed counseling skills to uncover underlying emotional issues at the root of negative eating habits and helps redirect her clients to healthier behaviors. Weight loss is mostly a mind game. “Fix the mind and the body will fix itself,” Rebecca says. She takes this approach when needed with her clients who receive oneon-one wellness coaching through True Body Nutrition. She walks through the health journey with her clients, teaching them along the way so they learn how to sustain a healthy lifestyle beyond the program. “Where do I start? First, the old food pyramid is essentially upside down,” Rebecca explains. These principles are reinforced through the wellness coaching she provides for her clients participating in the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method. As an Independent Authorized Ideal Protein Clinic, Rebecca uses the personalized weekly coaching model to help her clients not only lose weight, but also improve their overall lifestyle. Taking her clients beyond losing weight is a big focus

She put her own philosophies to the test when her weight reached over 200 pounds after the birth of her third child and has since lost 120 pounds thanks to Sensible Portions’ easy to follow plan. If you think you will spend your time eating bland chicken and over-cooked broccoli, that’s just not the case with this program. Broccoli and chicken may be on the menu, but so might gumbo, waffles and macaroni and cheese. “We prepare these items in a lighter way and portion them so you don’t feel like you are missing out.” Ingrid explains. Portion control, Ingrid says, is they key ingredient in losing weight and this is what she hopes to teach people with Sensible Portions. She stresses that while the meal sizes may seem small at first, they are actually the ideal portion size for weight loss. Sensible Portions meals are comprised of 1,000 calories (or 1,300 for men or those looking to maintain their weight), the optimal amount for weight loss and burning your body’s stored fat. The plan consists of three meals per day, Monday through Friday, and uses fresh and local ingredients.

Advancements in technology have paved the way for a future of dental health. An aspect of oral health that is often overlooked is occlusion, or the way our teeth interact with each other. This is a direct determinate in appearance of the smile. Worn teeth age the face. Cracks and stains are characteristic of teeth grinding. This is where anti-aging techniques are available. Having an early bite exam can prevent this accelerated aging of the teeth. For those who are suffering the effects, porcelain crowns and veneers have the ability to restore beauty and function to a worn dentition. Bite appliances or night guards are key to protecting the smile. Low-profile appliances are now available which improve on patient compliance. There has never been a better time in dentistry to touch all generations. From early detection of decay and gum disease to implant restorations to restore beauty, function and confidence, dentistry is a leader in the antiaging movement.

WHEN YOU VISIT a typical salon, do you feel rushed? Do you feel like just another customer? Do you feel uncomfortable, just being there? The team at Wax’d in Mandeville, strives to provide a different kind of experience. When owners Michelle and Brett White started to put everything together to open Wax’d, they were determined to change the way people look at salons. Their motto from day one has been, “Quality, not Quantity!” “The first thing you will notice when visiting Wax’d, is you are not our customer, or our client. You are our guest. We wanted to make sure that our guests feel the difference from the first time they call, or come to see us,” says Brett. Brett and his wife, Michelle, opened Wax’d exactly three years ago this month, and have since built a loyal following of guests who drive from across the Southeast region. “The majority of our guests come from referrals. We have guests who drive in from Mobile, Baton Rouge, Bogalusa and as far south as Belle Chasse and even Houma.” The Wax’d entrance looks more like a living room than a storefront. With large sofas and a welcoming atmosphere, you won’t find product pushing, heavy retail, or speedy treatments in this salon. “We are not your ‘normal’ fiveminute, put a foot on your forehead, and rip

impeccable and professional; but their personal service always keeps me coming back.”

“It’s one big family,” says Lana McLain, who along with Sarah Treadway and Michelle, are Wax’d Licensed Estheticians and handle all of the waxing and esthetics services. The staff walks around in jeans and tennis shoes and there is rock-and-roll playing in the front room, which helps to make it feel more like being at a friend’s house, than a typical salon. Wax’d is popular with men and women and is kid friendly for those who need to bring their children with them. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. The facility has several private, sanitary rooms equipped for waxing, airbrush spray tanning, facials, chemical peels, diamond-tipped microdermabrasion, and airbrush makeup, along with brow and lash tinting. Jamie, of Madisonville, has been a guest of Wax’d for just over two years. “I love this place,” she says, “I wouldn’t go anywhere else.” Others sing the salon’s praises as well, with

Restaurant Amis A Dining Oasis

By PAul CiminO PhOtOs By Kevin WAtKins

The newesT kid on The block of fine dining restaurants in st. Tammany is Amis. And what a kid it is! located in covington, Amis (French for “friends”) has already garnered praises that are far reaching. After having been opened for only two months, the crowds at

both lunch and dinner bear testimony to the food delights at this temple of culinary excellence. but it’s not by coincidence that Amis has been honed to such fine, diamond-like perfection in food and service. A

white glove restaurant without the gloves, Amis is meant to be thoroughly enjoyed, the result of much thought and planning given to every detail of its operation. The owners, chris binnings and Richard Taubin, have made the restau-

rant all that it should be, a well-orchestrated culmination of all their combined acumen in the food industry. binnings’ restaurant background reads like a travelo-

gue. his early beginning was at impastato’s Restaurant in Metairie, and his subsequent career took him as far south as the Florida keys, and back home again. in key west, he worked the famous commodore steak house,

and the road home included an interval at cigars in destin, Florida. locally, he was affiliated with lA Grill, Mi Mamacita’s and Times Grill, to name a few. he drew

heavily from these experiences to create Amis. but it was Friends Restaurant in Madisonville that was a turning point in his career. As a result of katrina, the restaurant flooded, and Friends remained closed due to extensive damage. The devastated owners decided not

to reopen. but binnings stepped in, with his partner and associate, Richard Taubin, took over the restaurant, tore it down, and completely rebuilt it. Today it stands strongly against future flooding due to its new construction, and

continues to add much to local dining pleasure. not content with the success of Friends, partners Taubin and binnings were already planning another venue, only this time it was a restaurant for fine dining as well as a night

spot for entertainment, a much needed and welcome venue in west st. Tammany. out of this planning was born Amis. Unquestionably a palace of palate pleasing delights, Amis

is a dining oasis. its quiet elegance provides a harmonious

aimed directly at sheer enjoyment and features many of the finest jazz musicians in the country for exceptional entertainment. For the football crowd, the lounge offers nine television screens for viewing on Monday nights in a delightful atmosphere. And not to be missed is the sunday Jazz brunch of from 10:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. in addition to a plethora foods, which is priced incredibly low, the brunch also inclu-

des a complimentary mimosa. Amis also boasts a private banquet room for parties, dinner meetings or what-have-you. Presently, they are already taking reservations for holiday parties and banquets. To tell all there is about Amis would require volumes, but suffice it to say it’s a wonderful place, and we’re so glad it’s here among so many other great eating places on the

northshore. effective August 4, Amis will be open seven days a week instead of six for lunch and dinner. dress is snappy casual, and reservations are suggested. For sheer pleasurable indulgence, do yourself a favor and dine at Amis, and when no you do, be sure to say hello to Richard and chris. we have doubt you’ll become an “ami” of Amis!! Restaurant Amis is located at 1950 N. Hwy 190 in Covington. To
