Aesthetic Procedures

As a woman approaching middle age, I am concerned about the appearance of age spots and spider veins on my face. I have a beauty maintenance regimen but there is only so much that washes, toners, creams and lotions can do.

I'd like to think that I look young for my age, but if I have age spots on my face, that would be a dead give-away as to how old I actually am! Fortunately for me, I don't have to put up with age spots and spider veins. There are medical spas that can remove these unsightly things on my face by using a photofacial treatment.

Thank goodness for medical spas that offer aesthetics procedures like botox, photofacials, and endovenous laser therapy (ELT). South West Vein and Laser Institute is one such spa that does all that and laser hair removal Phoenix, Arizona.

I wonder if there is a non surgical treatment for removing fat under the chin? I hate my double chin!

    I was informed that topical vitamin C and E does wonders to the skin at cellular level... literally protects the skin against free radicals that contributes to the signs of aging.Admittedly, I tried vitamin C, then some cherry and ginger extract face wash... I didn't know if its the vit C or phyto-extracts but people commented that the skin appear radiant.You might be wondering, what's a man doing with facial washes hahahaa... Well, if I were to call myself an expert in wellness, I have to see it work on myself first LOL :-D

    Haha, Bob, for a moment I wondered if you were a woman!

    I don't think there's anything strange about men using facial washes! My oldest brother has been using facial washes for years! :-)My husband doesn't though. He only relies on his bath soap to wash his face with!

    I have found a product line that really works for me. I regretted I did not know of this product line sooner. :-)

    Yep.I did that too - like ur hubby.Then I started using mint ones - to freshen up after a tiring day or perk up in the morning.But since I started to learn abt antioxidants, I started experimenting to see if those things really work.. just like my diet... was meant to disprove the weight loss system but to my surprise and delight, it worked !!

    A friend once told me that if you apply lotion with Vit E on your body, you will be a magnet for mosquitoes.

    Do you think that's true? Mosquitoes just love to bite me! I don't know if the body lotion that I am using has anything to do with it! :-)

    I have not read any reports on vitamin E and the attraction of mozzies but I suspect it is not so. I believe it has more to do with clothes color, fragrance, body heat and body chemical.Some people seem to repel mozzies naturally.When I was in the jungle during my military stint, I do get bites but less.Some of my comrades get almost nothing.Try using scentless lotion and see how it goes.Some pure essential oils do repel mozzies too - peppermint, tea tree and lemongrass are some of them.
