What's on our 2016 Beauty Resolution List
February, 2016 - Issue #136
We're an honest bunch, so we'll admit that, before the holidays, a few of us found the time in our busy schedules to get some much-needed "refreshment" before the picture season. After a little Botox in the brow and Juvederm in the lip lines, we felt confident and camera ready. But now that 2016 is here, we're looking down beyond our visage and noticing that there are some other spots that could use some love. Here's our 2016 plan. What's yours? Join the conversation at

Turn Back the Clock by Correcting
Neck & Chest Discoloration

One of the biggest complaints women and men have about their appearance is the premature aging of the neck and chest. Many people fail to treat this skin with the same diligence as they treat their face. Fortunately you can reverse the signs of aging for the neck and chest just like you can for your face. Both red and brown discolorations can be effectively treated with a little-to-no-downtime treatment like IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). IPL uses light to diminish sun spots and broken vessels, creating an even skin tone. Treatments are generally done in a series for best results, one treatment per month for three to six months. Treatments at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Care also include microdermabrasion as part of the process, so you get the added benefit of physical exfoliation, which removes dead skin cells. Treatments are only $250; right now, buy four and get one free. 254-3686

Send Spider Veins Packing
Before Summer Short Season

Patients with unsightly red and blue spider veins on their legs and face can be treated successfully with laser vein therapy. Laser treatments are a less-painful option when compared to sclerotherapy (injections), and there is less-frequent occurrence of bruising as well. Three treatments are usually recommended six weeks apart for best results. Treatments are quick and most patients report only a mild stinging sensation during treatment. Many patients have reported significant improvement in as little as two to six weeks. Winter is the perfect time to start treatment to have vein-free legs in time for summer! DermaCure will be offering 20 percent off all laser vein removal packages in the month of February. Call to schedule a free consultation to see if you are good candidate for vein therapy.
