Pink Luminous Breast: The At-Home monitoring assistant that lets us see what’s going on inside. #pinkluminousbreast

 

About 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. Over 40,000 will die from it this year alone. With these kind of statistics plaguing women, we look for any kind of assistance in diagnosing and treating the disease early. Everyone knows that early detection is the key to survival.

A new device just hit the market called the “Pink Luminous Breast” and it bills itself as a breast health familiarity tool. An LED device that uses transillumination, a light powerful enough to penetrate the skin and tissue of the breast. Any kind of cyst or solid mass will appear darker than the rest when the light is pressed on the skin.

Company founder Marylin Dans, who had a non-cancerous breast lump at age 17 is extremely passionate about educating women of all ages, backgrounds, and financial scenarios about the importance of breast health. She emphasizes that this tool is no way a replacement for a mammogram. It is to be used in conjunction with regular doctor visits and mammograms. The goal is to make women more aware and comfortable with their own breasts.

The Pink Luminous is approved by the FDA as a class I device, meaning it is safe and doesn’t need further regulation or restrictions. It is safe to use for women with breast implants and has no side effects.

Once again this device is a practical at-home device priced at $159, comparable price to a hair removal device, that SilkPro the parent company also sells. It is meant to encourage young women, starting at age 25 to actively invest in their breast health. When it is used in conjunction with regular screenings and check ups it can be helpful to seek out medical help if something seems off.

Dr.Konstantin Vasyukevich: Advanced Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon Upper East Side NYC

AA-Pg04-Nov17-Vasyukevich-crop-768x1027
The Upper East Side, particularly Park ave in the 70’s and 80’s is the Rodeo Drive of who’s who in the plastic surgery world. Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich, who looks way too young to have achieved what he has to date is smack in the middle with an art filled office located at 59 east 79th street. He is a double certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation.
As an assistant clinical professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, he is at the forefront of the massive changes and technology that has evolved in the world of plastic surgery in the last year or two.
Specializing in face lifts, gone are the days where the stereotype of a face lift involves a pulled up face that has no movement, a long and painful recovery, and an end result where everyone knows you had work done. The new era of facelifts has a much younger clientele coming in for preventive work, facelifts have a greater effect and longer lifespan on a younger client because skin is still rather tight and recovery is faster on a younger healthier patient. Chatting with Dr. Konstantin the funniest story he told was of a patient who after getting a facelift done, was questioned by a TSA worker at the airport while traveling because her new face was 15 years younger looking than her Passport. 
The modern facelift assisted by an endoscope, developed by Dr. Konstantin, allows clearer visualization of the surgical area and it’s furthest points so that it’s minimally invasive. According to Dr. Konstantin, just in this year alone, facelifts are starting to be performed under guided local and twilight anesthesia which eliminates a fear factor in patients and greatly reduces recovery time. Above are before and after pics where the skin is lifted, the neck is tightened, but the faces have a natural aesthetic just with the clock turned back 10 to 15 years.
Dr. Konstantin also performs brow lifts, eyelid surgery, neck lifts, rhinoplasty an non- invasive Botox, Dermal Fillers and Skin Resurfacing.

Dr. Andrew Jacono: Master of the “Natural” looking facelift.

  • 170320_DrJacono_s2_104-768x1024Walking into the swanky brand new office of Dr. Andrew Jacono, 630 Park Avenue, we noticed Damien Hurst art on the walls, a sleek elegant decor, a VIP waiting room, and walls strewn with plaques showcasing the philanthropic work Dr. Jacono does in third world countries as a volunteer surgeon with “Beyond our Borders” and “Healing the Children”, providing free surgery here and abroad for children needing reconstruction due to birth defects, trauma, or disease. 

    Dr. Jacono is a dual certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial plastic surgery in his Manhattan location. He is prominently know for The Natural Looking facelift, making patients look up to 15 years younger without that pulled skin effect we have all seen on actresses and socialites. Looking at before and after photos on his computer, the transformations are truly amazing. The results are you, only better, well you 15 years ago. Natural best is his motto.

    Over a timespan of 20 years Dr. Jacono developed and perfected the most advanced deep plane lift. The procedure lifts the cheeks, jowls, and neck line. The key to a youthful appearance is a strong jawline and lack of jowls, even more important than wrinkle free foreheads or eyes. Incisions are made under the muscle layer leaving skin intact, unlike in a standard facelift. This creates a natural looking appearance without any tightness.

    Dr. J knows that not every patient is ready or wants a surgical face lift. He offers several non-surgical options using Ultherapy to lift, strengthen, and tone the skin. The treatment is 30 to 60 minutes, lasts 2 to 3 months with no downtime. Sculptra, known as the liquid facelift, builds collagen in cheeks, across the jawline and under the eyes. the injections create a rested rejuvenated appearance. A firm believer in a natural looking appearance he customizes filler dosages where needed on the face to not create an over filled face. Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiuses, and laser treatments are performed as well depending on the needs and goals of the patient.

    During the consultation the Doc explains the expected results and expectations for every procedure. He is brutally honest so that patients understand that fillers/non-surgical options are great,but they will not heed the same result as a lift. He explains the advantages of pro-active treatments to prevent aging and how work on younger patients can have better and longer lasting results.

    Dr. Jacono’s 3rd book “The Face of The Future” gives a more in-depth insight into the most modern/ hi -tech current invasive and non-invasive procedures available to maintain a youthful appearance. The book can be purchased here: Amazon.com

Sanctuary Salon: Brooklyn, NY 

Sanctuary Salon Outside

Located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn this salon opened late summer 17 is exactly as the name suggests. Walking in the space is serene, the decor is soft and subtle with plants and murals throughout. Owner Jill Syslo of Sacred Skin NYC wanted to create a warm comfy environment while offering top notch hair services. I was immediately offered a glass of wine by my colorist/stylist James, it was a friday afternoon after all. 

He gave me a consultation and we decided on a single process and balyage to update my look for fall. Having done lots of color and summer, pools, and salt water my hair needed a little work. He lightened up my base a bit and gave me golden highlightes around the front. I ended up with a golden look I love. He also gave me a great blowout that lasted for days. I also received a much needed Olaplex treatment to keep my hair healthy and shiny. The salon also offers cuts, bang & neck trims as well as Keratin.

Dr.Edward Alvarez “Bro-Tox” Day of Beauty. Cosmetic Dentist, Wrinkle Eraser and much more…. @NYCLaserDentist

 

The last few years has seen a huge rise in men requesting non-invasive anti-aging outpatient services that were normally reserved for women. Men wanting to look younger but not done are booking Botox, Juviderm, and Kybella injections (removes fat from the chin aka the double chin. 

Dr. Edward Alvarez has been a distinguished cosmetic dentist practicing his craft in The Murray Hill area of Manhattan for almost 20 years. A fellow of The World Clinical Laser Institute, the most respected organization leading to advancement of lasers in dentistry. Dr. Alvarez holds degrees from several top schools including a degree in acupuncture from Harvard Medical School.

About a decade ago Dr. Alvarez discovered the close connection between cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetic enhancement. As we age we develop lines, lips lose their fullness, and skin loses its tightness due to collagen loss.

Dr. Alvarez became certified in dermal fillers for the reduction of facial wrinkles and in lip augmentation. He figured that by closely examining, and charting a patients face, yes he actually plots where the injections will go with a sharpie like pen for accuracy and symmetry purposes, he can achieve the most positive results for his patients. His patients come in to fix their mouths and walk out with both their teeth and faces revitalized.

During the “Day of Beauty” we had the chance to meet celebrity chef Chris Nirschel and former NY Giants Christian Peter, while they spent time with Dr. Alvarez and got pampered.

Review: Ziip Nano Current Device; A Sleek New Device that promises to conquer breakouts and wrinkles @ziipbeauty

The last few weeks I had the chance to review one of the newest and most hi- tech beauty devices out on the market today.  The Ziip Nano Current Device was developed by Melanie Simon an electrical esthetician. The device looks like a super fancy computer mouse that with the aid of the app through your iPhone/ipad offers up 6 different treatments “electrical cocktails” depending on your skin goals.

The technology behind Ziip is that it sends tiny electrical wavelengths deep below the surface of the skin and depending on the setting will deliver different results. When set on low it breaks down dirt and bacteria in the skin to help get rid of acne. My favorite treatment was the “vitaleyes”. The 2 to 4 minute treatment, I did the 4, really helps with dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.

For sensitive skin and for 1st time users the “sensitive energize” treatment is a gentle 12 minute ant- aging treatment. For men who don’t want to spend much time on their face, the 2 minute treatment, twice a week is perfect to help reduce dark circles, fine lines and tighten pores. 

The first step is to prepare the face for treatment. The Golden Conductive Gel Treatment, which feels like petroleum jelly, has to be applied liberally before you glide the Ziip device over your face and neck. Time depends on treatment selected. It is recommended to use the Ziip 1 to 3 times a week and the results are cumulative.

After a few weeks of use I find that my pores are tighter, skin definitely looks brighter and my under eye area is way less puffy. It is on the pricey side but worth it and makes a great gift for mothers day. $495 Where To Buy

It’s All About The Brows at Hibba Beauty Studio @BrowbarbyHibba @HibbaBeauty

 

Hibba Kapil of Hibba Beauty and her team of experienced Browologists and waxing technicians have been busy shaping women’s eyebrows and providing organic whole body hair removal services in New York City since 2010. Now with 3 locations, with the latest being a cozy cheerful salon in the heart of Columbus Circle.

For eyebrows or any hair removal on the face, Hibba does not believing in waxing. The areas are too sensitive and waxing can be harsh and not as precise as the threading method. The focus is on the arch and recreating the arch is Hibba’s main focus. When done correctly eyebrows are the centerpoint of the face and accentuate features and bone structure.

Initially I was little bit nervous about threading because I always plucked and waxed my eyebrows. However, with a few mishaps in the last year and the last few months I have been letting them grow out and even out, I was ready to try it out. I was pleasantly surprised at how quick it was and less painful than waxing. She was able to grab hard to reach hairs that waxing could not. I highly recommend it!

Brow Reformation or Microblading is a huge trend right now and is a specialty of Hibba’s. Although I did not have it done yet many colleagues have praised her work. It’s basically taking thin sparse brows and reforming them into fuller brows with a semi-permanent tattoo. The process takes about 2 hours including an extensive consultation and costs between $400-650 dollars. Considering how thick eyebrows are all the rage now, this is a valuable investment, plus you save on not having to purchase all those eyebrow pencils!

For the body Hibba uses Azulene wax which is infused with chamomile and honey, which have soothing properties, to relieve the pain and her well trained staff provide a quick and surprisingly pretty painless experience.

Sugaring is also offered for hair removal on the body. This very gentle natural method uses a paste made from sugar, lemon, and water. This method has been around for thousands of years and Hibba’s salon is one of the few in the city to offer a truly authentic shugaring experience.

There are many packages available when purchasing multiple sessions. I highly recommend  a visit! Hibba Beauty

The relaxed and friendly vibe complete with wine makes for a happy hair experience.
