As women age, it becomes harder and harder to feel "beautiful" by society's standards. While we all work on making it easier to feel pretty in a culture that values youth, there are options that can make every gal feel a little more gorgeous - even if she's no longer shopping in the "juniors" section.
Clear skin can be yours with the right treatments.
You don't need plastic surgery with these less- and non-invasive beauty treats.
When I asked the pros at DermaCure for the newest, best treatment for my aging skin, I didn't expect the procedure to involve a blood draw - but that's exactly what I signed up for once I saw the Vampire Facial® "before and after" photos. Over and over again, images of women and men with tighter, smoother, glowing skin appeared before my eyes - and I was ready for my own Kim Kardasian blood-spattered Instagram moment. (Kim's a fan - and so is Angelina Jolie!).
From premature aging to waxing tips, we asked - and the pros answered!
Dreaming of skin that's smoother? Wishing for the days when your face had "bounce" and fullness? Wondering what will banish the wrinkles for more than just a few months?
When I first heard that YOUnique Surgery Center & Medical Spa was coming to Santa Clarita, I was thrilled. Several years ago, I accompanied my mother to her cosmetic surgery consultation at YOUnique's surgery center in Santa Monica and we were both so impressed. Located directly across the street from the famous pier, the gorgeously-appointed office boasted incredibly-friendly, knowledgeable staff - and ocean views. When I heard about the location opening in the SCV, I was intrigued; Santa Clarita might have Awesometown, but we're lacking Pacific Ocean coastline.
Rachel* of Santa Clarita is 54, single and a mother of two independent adults. "They're out of the house, grown and gone!" she jokes when talking about her kids. "I'm dating, I take care of myself and I feel fabulous," is how she describes her life.
Diane S. of Saugus did something remarkable a decade ago; she lost 130 pounds.
I don't usually get medical-procedure advice from Khloe Kardashian, but when she overshared, "My sisters, they've had kids, and there's a vagina lasering thing to tighten. So in my household, all they do is talk about this vagina laser," I had to learn more. After all, I'm a mom who's given birth to three kids. If there's a way to feel better "down there," I want to know about it.
Chances are, you've heard of YOUnique Surgery Center & Medical Spa; it's the place celebs, and those who just want to look like them, go to look refreshed and revitalized. Featured regularly in national magazines and talk shows, YOUnique's Ocean Avenue location in Santa Monica has a beachscape view - but what you'll find at the Valencia location might be even more jaw-dropping: a new, younger-looking, healthier you.
Brenda, 36, never thought she was the kind of person who'd opt for elective surgery. "Especially since I had children, I was really, really nervous about it. What if the worst happened? I knew that I'd never do it unless I found a doctor who I could absolutely trust not only with my results, but with my health. I needed to know, 100 percent, that I would be ok."
