What's New in Beauty 2024
Published 03/04/2024

   Consumers nowadays are well informed, educated and in high demand. When they are uncertain or indecisive about
a skincare treatment or a product they find on social media or Google Search and in my practice, I see misunderstanding and misconception between beauty and beauty trends. I get multiple questions such as “Have you seen this new machine for face tightening, it’s trending now?” or “I read in Vogue about a new treatment for cellulite, it’s getting popular now.”

The concept of Active Beauty  

Published 03/02/2021

Until recently my client’s concerns were about active ingredients in skin creams, serums, and lotions. Today their interest is in active beauty and quote: "how can this be good for my skin?" Active beauty is an advanced concept in skin science. The elucidation of new mechanisms in the ageing process and discovery of natural peptides, epigenetics, proteomics, in vitro cell techniques and other substances that will beneficially modify the ageing processes in the skin, has led to a greater sophistication in anti-ageing skin care concepts and products. The consumer interest has changed from wrinkling serums and moisturizing creams to more active formulations that have an effect beyond the top layer of the skin. With an increasing consumer trend towards natural products, what’s more natural than harnessing the bacteria on your skin?Read More

Do I Have to Change My Facial Cleanser in Winter?  
Published 05/05/2021

 I am not surprised that recently my customers are extremely concerned about their facial cleanser or face wash. In my practice they usually want to change their cleanser in winter. In Washington DC up to now, we are lucky with the weather but with Covid-19, wearing a facial mask and spending more time in heated rooms in front of computers the skin has become more sensitive and reactive. My previous blog “Micellar Cleansers-Are they better than my regular face wash?” posted March 30,2016 generate positive reviews. Choosing a facial cleanser is a personal decision and it depends on many factors. In this blog I will give you a few tips: Read More

                                                                                           Published August 29, 2020
 As the trend grows towards minimally invasive procedures 2020 is shaping up to be the year of cosmeceuticals due to the rising preference for physician-dispensed products over non-prescription and OTC products and a flock of new launches from popular brands as well as unique brands entering this expanding category. According to some market research the sales of physician-recommended cosmetics are expected to increase exponentially in the coming years. There is a clear preference for new entries that are focused on product differentiation to expand the market from natural cleansers and moisturizers to science-based formulations, targeted anti-agers, beauty supplements and drinks, probiotics, and advanced treatment products. Consumers are seeking products that outperform their expectations and fit the bill of innovative problem-solvers that are convenient to use at home. Read More

                                                         Chemical Peels, pushing the limits in chemical peeling for skin rejuvenation

                                                                                                        Posted May 3rd, 2019
  Why did I decide to write this blog? Why I think it will help not just the consumer but also medical and cosmetic practitioners who opt to
#chemicalpeeling versus another resurfacing modality available in the marketplace. Chemical peels are my preferred method of #facialrejuvenation and corrective procedures such as removal of #acnescars #removeDarkSpots, pigmentation, seborrheic keratosis, chemical peels for hypertrophic scars or #keloids since 1979. The difference between then and nowadays is that my peeling technique is more perfecting, and the peeling solutions are much improved regarding composition, potency and carrier or delivery system.

Should quality synthetic ingredients matter more than natural ingredients?
Posted on March 7/ 2019/ at 1:15 PM
Just because a skin care product is advertised with a beautiful plant or garden as a back fond does not mean a moisturizer or a facial serum is free of toxic material. In fact, natural ingredients can generate unexpected toxicity despite the good intention of the producer. In many cases the whole plant extract may be anti-inflammatory but some of its components when isolated can cause allergic reactions. Read More

    Usually at this time of the year the topic of cellulite becomes more relevant. While normal fat can be reduced through exercise and diet, cellulite cannot. I have combined 35 plus years’ expertise with the latest technology to reduce cellulite for hundreds of women. Many factors contribute to the formation of cellulite and as a result we can identify distinct types of cellulites with specific physiology and appearance. Read More
