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?

"I had two kids and I didn't like the way I looked anymore," shared Santa Clarita resident Lara M., 35. "I breastfed both of them, which I'm very proud of - but when I was done, my chest looked really deflated. I didn't look good in clothes, I was self conscious."
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.
"I have wanted a new physique for years, but I didn't want to give my daughters the impression that women shouldn't be happy with their bodies. I didn't want to pass down my displeasure with my figure to them. Then I went through a divorce and decided, 'It's time.' And you know what? My daughters were actually so supportive!," shares Belinda, 61.
If you are wishing you could hit the holiday party circuit feeling fresh faced, these ideas might be just what the doctor ordered.
For over a year, I've been in charge of interviewing patients of Dr. Justin Heller's celebrated plastic surgery practice. I've spoken to breast cancer survivors who talked about how the Ivy-League educated surgeon helped them emotionally and physically recover after mastectomies; I've listened patiently as another wept while she spoke of her dramatic weight loss, the skin it left behind, and her first-in-a-lifetime experience being flirted with after her confidence-boosting procedures with the doctor. I was wowed by a new grandma who said, "I laughed when Dr. Heller told me I'd be wearing a bikini after my procedure. But guess what? I rocked a bikini this summer!" I've been motivated by women who waited for the procedure that changed their self perceptions, each saying that their only regret was not having surgery earlier.
