Fixing the dreaded "Double Chin"

  Do you frequently wear turtlenecks or scarves to hide your saggy neck?  Are you uncomfortable wearing your hair up?  Liposuction can solve this problem by creating an elegant neck.  Dr. Sterry can complete the procedure in as little as 45 minutes at his surgical facility.  Using local anesthesia, three pinholes are made with a needle under the chin.  A CO2 laser passed under the skin tightens it and melts the fat.  The fat is then suctioned out through the pinholes.

Power Ingredient – Retinol

Retinol is a skincare ingredient derived from vitamin A.  It is used to unclog pores, reduce fine lines, even out discoloration, and smooth the skin.  Prescription formulas use stronger Retinoids, providing the most impressive results in as little as 4 weeks.  But you don’t have to see the dermatologist to reap the benefits.  Over the counter skincare products can contain retinol with a lesser potency.  These results are seen in 2-3 months.  When choosing an over the counter product a moisturizer, gel, serum, or lotion will give your skin optimal benefit.
