Make them Think that Time Stood Still
December, 2014 - Issue #122
Admit it - you'd really like to look more rested, fresh and younger in holiday photos this year. (You aren't alone - we're already booking our own treatments now!)

"Most people will benefit greatly from a minor procedure to look their best this holiday season. These procedures include Botox injections for wrinkles, as well as fillers such as the FDA-approved Restylane and Juvederm to plump up the lips or correct wrinkles on the lower face. A Vi Peel treatment will eliminate sun spots, brown spots, pigmentation and fine wrinkles on the face. These procedures are non-invasive, painless, requires no down time or recovery and if done by a qualified physician, the results are very natural and affordable," says Dr. Andrew T. Cohen of Beverly Hills Physicians. "We offer a full range of facial rejuvenation options just in time for the holidays. You can set up a complimentary consultation online by logging onto or giving us a call at 249-4040."

Here's what on our beauty to-do list this season!


Juvederm's Voluma is the hottest injectable at the moment. It is literally a "liquid facelift!" Voluma does what its name implies: it restores lost volume caused by age and weight loss to the cheek area. Injecting Voluma improves the jaw line, marionette lines and laugh lines instantly.

Microdermabrasion Facial and Colostrum Cream

The DiamondTome Microdermabrasion Facial treatment uses real diamonds to remove the outmost layer of skin to reveal a glowing complexion and promote the production of new cells in the deepest layers of the skin. It is a crystal-free, painless, safe, clean, precise and effective treatment. The skin is not red after and there is no recovery time. It can be used to treat sun damage, acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Microdermabrasion also unblocks pores, reducing the risk of acne breaks outs if used on a regular basis. Follow your treatment with Colostrum Cream. It moisturizes the skin and acts as a super skin restorer. It is especially regenerative and hydrating; it will keep your skin dewy and supple.

It's that time of year - when it seems that every weekend is filled with holiday parties. (And you know what that means: People want to look their best!). Here's how: Botox is the perfect procedure to get you ready for the holidays. Smooth crow's feet, frown lines and forehead creases that show up in all the family photos and selfies! Botox works by relaxing the muscles that create lines and wrinkles in the first place, so using Botox on a regular basis will actually slow down the aging process.

How much does it Really Cost?

Understanding Unit & Syringe Fees

Understanding injectable pricing isn't always easy, especially since client needs vary so dramatically. Lucky for us, the professional beauty consultants at VNMG Aesthetics clued us in.

"Average frown lines take about 20 units; crow's feet take anywhere from 24 to 36; forehead lines average between 20 and 30 units. These are averages for women; men usually need a little more," says Mary Sanchez. "Either way, you multiply the price of the unit with how many you actually need." Fillers like Juvederm are priced a little differently. "We go by syringe, with the average person's mild-to-moderate treatment requiring two syringes." The important thing to note, though, is that once you're treated with injectables, "you usually require less units and syringes for maintenance. If you stick with it, as most of patients do, you'll find that your first treatment was the most expensive. When you stick to a regular schedule, you find that you need less and less to maintain your younger look," says Sanchez.
