Get Your Eyes Back

Get Your Eyes Back

What Will It Take For You To Get Your “EYES ” Back? Dear Dr Bass, I look in the mirror and see a “tired” face looking back at me, even after 8 hours of sleep. My eyes use to be my best feature and now they seem to have lost their luster. I probably need something done with my neck but I really don’t want to look overdone. Can I just do something for the eyes? Tired of Looking Tired   Dear Tired, Yes that mirror and family photos do bring some wonderful people into my practice. You’ve heard the sayings that 50 is the new 30, and 60 is the new 40. I’m sure it isthe baby boomer generation spreading those comparisons. I do believe that we are aging differently than our parents where 50 was old and people looked like they were 70. Now because boomers are so active and eating better their body is acting and looking younger. But their facial skin is falling and can’t be covered up with clothes. So we do sometimes need an intervention, like plastic surgery to keep the face looking the same age as the body and mind. You describe that your upper and lower face are showing signs of aging. Not a problem. Many of my patients address just the upper half and then whenever they choose they may do something with either dermal filler to lift the cheek/mid-face or choose cheek/neck surgery down the road to get that completed refreshed look. Recovery is about ten days and you will be back on the social calendars. Please call Theresa at 602-485-1010 to schedule your consultation and we can decide on the proper procedure for you to refresh your “tired look.” Dr. Bass Dear Dr.Bass, I have heavy upper eyelids and my eyes are starting to look smaller and smaller. I think that if some excess skin is removed from the upper eyelid then I will get my wide open eyes back again. My friend has the same concerns and was told she needed to have a forehead lift. Why can’t she just have the excess skin of upper eyelids removed? Confused   Dear Confused, The eye area is a little tricky. What I’ve found is that the eyes look heavy for a couple different reasons. What is the position of the eyebrow when the face is in relaxed position? It is below the brow bone? Are the eyebrow and eyelashes too close? Or is the excess of the upper eyelid skin extending beyond the outer edge of the eye? Or is the eye brow in a proper position but you have no visible upper eyelid. Many questions need to be taken into consideration before coming up with the proper treatment. One surgical procedure does not work for everyone. Let’s see you in consultation to make sure that you will be treated with the correct procedure. Thanks for your question. Dr. Bass Dr. John Bass, M.D. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon   Diplomate, American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Summer Skin Care Tips

Posted by on May 6, 2015 in Tips & Tricks | 0 comments

Summer Skin Care Tips Summer weather means showing more skin, hotter temperatures and plenty of days spent in the sun. You know that a regular skin care routine includes cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating. However, during the summer you need to add a few additional steps to your skin care regimen. Your skin is the largest organ your body has and you should treat it with care. Of course sunscreen is always necessary, but there is more to your summer skin regimen than your SPF. Exfoliate Regular exfoliation is important to your skin. When you exfoliate, you remove dead skin cells and debris that lead to clogged pores. If you have sensitive, aging or dry skin, you may think that you should skip the exfoliating process. True, you probably should avoid harsh scrubs as your method of exfoliation, but it is still an important step towards healthy skin. Chemical exfoliants using AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) are gentle exfoliants that you apply onto your skin and follow with your sunscreen and moisturizer. Make this step a little easier with a multi-tasking products that do both. For a super easy DIY body exfoliator, mix sugar and coconut oil and rub in circular motions all over your body. If you’d prefer to forgo the mixing of your own exfoliator, there are plenty of excellent options on the market to choose from. Hydrate Your skin and body require adequate hydration and most people are not getting enough water each day. Doctors recommend that you drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily. If you drink caffeinated or alcoholic beverages, you should plan on tripling the amount of water that you drink. And while flavored waters and teas are tasty, it is important to drink eight glasses of plain, filtered water. Make sure that you are never far from hydration by keeping a water bottle with a built-in filter at your side. Sun Protection Sunscreen is an important part of everyday skin care, though most people tend to skip it most of the year. The sun’s UVA and UVB rays do more than just give a nasty burn; they significantly speed up the aging process. Additionally, those who catch rays without protection and experience burns are more likely to develop skin cancer than others. To avoid all of these skin issues, apply an SPF to your face and body every single day. Experts recommend that you use approximately a teaspoon amount of sunscreen to your face and enough sunscreen to fill a shot glass for your body. Apply sunscreen 20 to 30 minutes prior to sun exposure and reapply every two hours. Although many sunscreens claim to be sweat-proof or waterproof, experts suggest that you reapply sunscreen any time that you emerge from water. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your hands, feet and lips. Proper skin care helps keep signs of aging away, reduces blemishes, and protects your skin from the elements. With more skin showing, it is important to remember that your face is not the only skin needing care. Stay hydrated, get rid of dead skin and debris and always, always apply sunscreen so that you can enjoy the sun safely. Brian Stumbaugh is a recent college graduate residing in San Diego, CA.

Waxing Hints & Tips

Waxing Hints & Tips

Here are a few simple guidelines that will make your waxing experience a smooth and relaxing. Does it hurt? There is a little discomfort however the results are well worth it. Clients quickly get used to the sensation. Routine waxing helps to reduce the pain, and will minimize irritation. If you are planning a bikini, betweenie or Brazilian waxing treatment, avoid scheduling the appointment near your menstrual cycle. While it is still possible to wax during your cycle, your skin will be more tender and the treatment will be more painful at that time. Plumb Numb This fast-acting FDA compliant anesthetic gel contains the highest level of lidocaine allowed by the FDA for an over the counter product. For temporary pain relief, use it 30 minutes before your next waxing. It’s non-oily, contains a proprietary blend of soothing botanical extracts, and features a fresh menthol scent. Safe to use on any part of the body and won’t stain clothing. What should I do to prepare for my visit? You should arrive “freshened up” or if there isn’t time, we provide moistened “towelettes” for your convenience. For an underarm wax, it may be necessary to avoid antiperspirant or deodorant to help the wax adhere more easily, but keeps yourself fresh just before your appointment. How long should I wait to get waxed after I’ve shaved? You need some growth for the wax to adhere to the hair. Hair should be at least 1/4″ (about 2 ½ to 4 week’s growth) for the most effective waxing. Everyone’s hair growth rate is slightly different. How long will it last? The results will last anywhere from ten days to three weeks. We recommend booking appointments every 4 to 6 weeks. The hair eventually gets softer and thinner every time it grows back. Longer Lasting Results Whish Hair Inhibiting Gel is a lovely and quick absorbent moisturizer that exceptionally versatile to boot. Not only can it be used to soothe your skin after a day in the sun, or replenish it after shaving, waxing or laser, it also slows hair growth. All this and it’s made with natural ingredients. Active Ingredients: Inhibits with larrea divaricata (chapparel) extract. Moisturizes with organic aloe, organic shea butter panthrnol. Renews with hyaluronic acid and retinol palmitate. What can I expect afterwards? Let your skin heal. After you get your wax, it is likely that your skin may be slightly irritated and possibly red. If this happens it will usually clear within hours to a few days dependent on area & skin sensitivity. What can I do About Ingrown Hair? Whish Flawless cleans out the pore, prevents ingrown hairs moisturizes, soothes and regenerates. Perfect for men and women, Whish Flawless can be used on face and neck, bikini area, underarm, brow, lip and chest or wherever blemishes from shaving, waxing, or laser occur. We also recommend using Whish Sugar Scrub approx. 24 hours after waxing or after any sensitivity has resolved. This is a great routine to do every day to get rid of the dead skin cells and help “lift” the hairs growing out. It will also help to speed up the hair removal process. What are the possible side effects of waxing and how can they be minimized? Although we cannot predict or guarantee who may react, most clients do not experience...
