Are You Heading South???

A few weeks ago, I blogged about Ultherapy, a new technology using ultrasound, to lift and tighten the skin.  It was performed on an audience member by Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Haideh Hirmand, on Dr.Oz's daytime show.  Dr. Oz sure carries a lot of cred!

The phones at the New York Group for Plastic Surgery immediately rang off the hook, with patients clamoring for more information.    After thoroughly interviewing Dr. C. Andrew Salzberg and his Physician's Assistant Courtney Dunavant, I decided to try Ultherapy on my neck and to see if I could achieve a lift to my right eyelid, which was beginning to head south.

 Below are some pictures and a recap of my interview with them, to help you evalutate whether this lower cost, non-invasive, no down time, tissue lifting procedure may be right for you.

J'adore J'adore

Not the perfume, by Dior, (I've never smelled it)...the mesmerizing commercial starring Charlize Theron.  It was first aired in 2007 during the Holiday Season.and smartly, it was not retired.  Charlize looks drop dead gorgeous, returning home from a night on the town.  She struts and strips, discarding all the artifice and armour...gown, shoes, jewels in heaps in her wake. What matters??? Not much, just her perfume...and whoever awaits in the boudoir.  Now that's hot.

Brushing Up on Brushing Up

Last Thursday's New York Times Style section, featured an apropos article in its weekly Skin Deep column, titled "Wildly Abrasive". The abrasion, is caused by a process called "dry brushing" and it just so happens that I have been doing it before my daily shower for over a month now.  Do I love being ahead of the curve???  You betcha!!!  What is dry brushing and why on earth am I doing it???

Psssst...Which Dry Shampoo Actually Works?

I've been toying with the idea of trying a dry shampoo for awhile.  If I could save one day a week of washing, that's nearly two months less wear and tear on my color.  As well, since I have been wearing my hair straighter, it actually looks better with a little wear and tear.  The original entrant in the market was a product called Pssst, about a zillion years ago. Basically you were spraying Johnson's Baby Powder in your hair...good luck with that,  particularly  if you are a brunette.  I'm sure it's still available  somewhere on the Internet, but not at my local CVS.  Neither is TRESemme's Fresh Start or Rene Furterer's Nutria.   I received a $20 off coupon from Sephora's one of the perks of being a V.I.B. Insider  You too can have that privilege--all you have to do is spend a small fortune  at Sephora each year.  Why not see if I could use my found money on a dry shampoo???

Lierac- Good to the Last Drop

My sister Loren is always peppering me with questions about all the products I try..."How can you tell if it's working"?   "How can you tell one from product from another"?  What makes you like one product over another"?   I have one sure meter that never fails me:  If I use up a product to the last drop and I go out and purchase it on my own dime.   Here's three products from Lierac Paris that fit the bill and you can conveniently purchase them at CVS and Duane Reade nationwide.  You can also click on the link above to their website, which offers some terrific promotional starter kits.

Tried and True

Most people would imagine that December would be the busiest month of the year for a Personal Shopper,  but in reality it always plays runner up to September.  Really, is there anything better than fall clothes?  Never the-less, I'm still a wee whack, so forgive this short recap of three recent purchases that I would classify as LOVE,  LIKE and HATE.

Glam It

I'm a month ahead of schedule for my pale and pasty whinefest... but  nonetheless, it's coming...With the advent of having to bare some skin at  upcoming Holiday parties,  I looked at my naked self, head to toe in the mirror.  Just three short months from summer and I am already the color of the underbelly of a giant tuna.  Jeez!  I needed a quick fix in a hurry.  Let's face it, whether it's a fake bake or the real deal...everyone looks better with a little cuh-lah.

The Wizard is Oz

I am a working Girl, so I don't  get to spend afternoons with Dr. Mehmet Oz, the brilliant Turkish-American Cardiothoracic surgeon, who cut his T.V. teeth on Oprah.  Apparently, his credibility with  viewers is so high, that if he features a procedure related to health and beauty it is taken as Gospel. 

Recently, Dr. Oz did a  feature on Ultherapy as part of a segment called,  "How to Look 10 Years Younger in Less Than 30 Minutes"!  Ultherapy uses ‘uplifting ultrasound’ to improve skin laxity of the face and neck in a meaningful  but completely non–surgically way.  In just  one treatment,  the body’s own regenerative process of building new collagen to lift and tighten the skin is triggered ---happening gradually and naturally,  from the inside out.  It sounds too good to be true, but apparently it isn' works!!!
