Regain A Youthful Look

skinNow is the perfect time to consider the cosmetic surgery procedure that you have been dreaming of, and look your best for the upcoming summer season. Diet and exercise are the best ways to help stay healthy and keep in shape, but supplementing a healthy lifestyle with cosmetic surgery procedures will leave you in the best shape that you can be in…healthy and beautiful, both inside and out!

Face-lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing sagging skin and tightening muscle tissue of the face and neck to counter signs of aging. A brow lift (forehead lift) minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead, or those that occur high on the bridge of the nose and improves frown lines or a low brow. Skin rejuvenation procedures including wrinkle reduction, IPL® PhotoRejuvenation, Skin Tightening, Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels are all effective and can be used in combination with each other or with a surgical procedure.

Various injectable fillers are effective in reducing wrinkles and softening facial creases and Botox™ is just one of the popular non-surgical ways to reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet. It is the proper mix of these procedures that guarantees a successful improvement in appearance and a significant reduction in the signs of aging. It is most effective to combine a surgical procedure with a non-surgical procedure to achieve the best and most significant results. [Read more…]

Visiting The Land of Roses & Chocolate

Photo1The Vacation & Travel special section in this week’s newspaper caused me to reflect on my favorite places. Without a doubt, one of them is Mexico. It’s a trip I’ve made a half-dozen times. But rather than go to touristy places, such as Cancun, I’ve found my favorite spots are more obscure and laid-back places like Akumal and Tulum. It’s usually in these destinations that I come across wonderful discoveries.

My most recent trip to Mexico found me staying for 10 days, during which time I was fortunate enough to go on a tour of Uxmal, home to a number of impressive ancient Mayan ruins. And while I had already found a place to stay in nearby Merida, it was during my quest for a good restaurant that I came across Rosas & Xocolate, a wonderful boutique hotel and spa. [Read more…]
