Fall Fab: From Lips To Lashes

We’ve officially said goodbye to summer and are excited about all the fabulous fall trends. This year is the year of Lips and Lashes. Long lashes and dark brows are all over magazine covers and the runway. From tinted lashes (and brows) to dark red lips we are loving the look. Some of our favorite lippies this season are Kevin Aucoins dark, romantic black cherry lip color Black Dahlia, Oribe’s The Red and Mona, a flattering reddish brown by Nars. Worried your lips aren’t full enough to rock these bold colors? We can definitely help with that. Dr. Bonnie Marting can help get your lips looking more full and plump with a site of Juvederm or Resty. Whether you’ve noticed your lips thinning over time, or simply want fuller more natural looking lips these are two great options.

Whether you’re new to lash and brow tinting or a seasoned expert, we guarantee you haven’t seen perfection if you haven’t made a trip to see Ellie Malmin, our expert Lashologist and Palm Beach brow guru. Don’t trust your eyes to just anyone. Lash and brow tinting is definitely an art and requires precision and skill. Don’t start the glamorous Palm Beach holiday season without stopping in to see us.

Anushka’s Dr. Bonnie Marting Featured in Consultant: Delivering Exceptional Client Care & Outstanding Results.

This month, Anushka’s Dr. Bonnie Marting, DNP ARNP published a feature article in Consultant 360, a leading peer reviewed journal, about the Aesthetic Practice. Peer Reviewed journals in the medical community are revered for their high-level contributions from leading medical providers worldwide. Her article focuses on the rise in popularity of non-surgical medical procedures and anti-aging treatments that are increasing exponentially as more facilities and providers enter into the arena. Consultant 360 asked her to weigh in, as a leading provider in the industry, on how to deliver exceptional client care as well as outstanding results.

Injection-GirlDr. Marting points out many important details to consider and watch for when you are choosing an Aesthetic Practitioner. The first is to make sure your provider is spending enough time with you to understand your needs and desires. In this way, the provider can appropriately guide the client to discover what treatment will achieve the outcome they’re looking for as well as educate them to understand what proper treatments are right for them.

Your provider should also be asking you questions about your medical history, experience with other treatments and if you’ve had specific diseases. Many clients don’t understand that while it is not a “medical” appointment, often times your history can have an affect on what course of treatment is appropriate and safe for you.

Dr. Marting recommends taking some very useful before and after photos so you can view the results for yourself. Snap an image of your resting face, a big smile, a frown, and a quizzical look. Each of these will identify and demonstrate what areas should be of focus. A qualified professional will guide you through your unique prescription for facial perfection.

Dr. Marting educated us on everything you need to know about choosing the right provider to describing all of the modalities on the market to restore youth, including neuromodulators (to relax lines), Hyaluronic Acid (dermal fillers) and Poly-L-Lactic Acid (foundational structure recovery).

WRINKLE MYTHS BUSTED

You have without a doubt heard much about wrinkles. Well, wrinkle myths abound, and you may have heard only a fraction of the truth. Here are some truths:

How your parents age is only a small predictor of how you will age. While genes are a part of the equation, they may actually not play as great a role as we once thought. When it comes to premature skin aging, the biggest culprit is extrinsic aging – think sun exposure, smoking, and environmental factors. Wearing sunscreen with at least an SPF30+ every day, and a formula that that blocks both UVA and UVB rays, is the single best way to protect your skin. Wrinkles are not just from age, 95% of them are related to cumulative sun exposure that causes DNA damage.

Drinking water to stay hydrated is important, but it won’t prevent wrinkles. Though drinking more water may help you look brighter and feel better. Dehydration – even low-grade dehydration – can cause headaches, dizziness and fatigue. There is no definitive answer for how much water you need each day. It varies based on your age, gender, activity level, climate, and other factors, but the general recommendation is about 9 cups every day for women, and that doesn’t include coffee or chardonnay.

Using the right skin care and using it consistently is an important part of an anti-aging strategy. Retinoids are the primary achievers, but generous use of a moisturizer can hydrate your skin and smooth fine lines. For real dynamic (muscle movement) wrinkles a little help from BOTOX will prevail. And for deeper lines and sag, filler injections (Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra Aesthetic, Radiesse), will do the trick. If the skin is quite damaged from UV exposure, consider laser resurfacing or a series of skin peels.

Call 561- 820-8055 to schedule a consultation with Bonnie Marting, DNP ARNP for your personalized anti-wrinkle plan and take years off your face, neck, chest and hands.

Best Beauty Buzz

Best Beauty Buzz…….
In the world of beauty, trends change quickly but it’s the really good stuff that lasts. One of the more recent trends that appears to be here to stay is the revitalization of the midface, perfected with Juvéderm Voluma® by Allergan or Restylane Lyft®. As we move along in life we naturally lose the fat pads in the cheeks and anterior face that reflect youth. Loss of these fat pads reveals a more aged look due to flattening, drooping, and folding of the skin that used to be projected and soft. Some expertly placed Voluma will immediately recapture the youthful contour of yesterday.
While we have all seen faces that are a bit overdone, the intent should not be to create “BIG CHEEKS”, but rather the softer curves seen in younger people. Voluma or Lyft fill this need beautifully.
Silky Soft…
The newest tool in the USA’s beauty arsenal is Restylane Silk®, a refined Restylane (already one of the greatest dermal fillers) that will redefine and create soft lips, erase fine lines and wrinkles, and gently fill in those dark eye hollows. The unique manufacturing process gives this filler the ability to be used in areas where other fillers fail. Consider it one of the best means to keep us on the road to “forever young”.
