Whether you're plus-size or not, certain physical characteristics are considered more "classically beautiful" than others, especially by plastic surgeons, whose job it is to manipulate a person's look based on their desires. In an interview with Revelist, plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Zuckerman said, "Classical beauty is, in part, characterized by a delicate jawline, slight heart shape to the face and a petite chin."

Because of this, he says more and more plus-size models (as well as other women) are seeking treatments to slim their jawline area. "It's true that many women, 'plus-size' models and otherwise, currently want to maintain a bit of a fuller figure, while at the same retaining a face that is classically beautiful," Dr. Zuckerman said.  ..

I set out to see if time travel was possible. It wasn't a very long journey I was hoping to go on—backtracking five years or so — but then, a half decade's not bad for an hour spent in a Midtown Manhattan dermatology clinic. I was there to get zapped with the latest beauty technology, an outpatient procedure that promised to kick-start my skin's deadbeat collagen, putting it on a high-speed rewind that would reverse nearly a year's worth of aging per month over the next half year.

What led me to the practice of Dr. Francesca Fusco to test out Ultherapy was pretty standard stuff. For the past decade, the skin I'd known in my twenties had been on a slow slide that left my cheekbones a little lower, my jaw line looser, and everything settled just a couple tattle-tale millimeters below where it used to be. I felt bad about it, but not that bad. It certainly wasn't worth going under the knife for. But what if I didn't have to go under the knife to get the effects of a facelift—or at least a subtle version of one?  ..

Curious about Ultherapy? Have you heard about it but haven't yet completely understand what Ultherapy is and what Ultherapy does for anti-aging? Here's a great video and blog post from Min, a beauty blogger.  Listen to what she has to say.



Usually when we talk about ultrasound we think about expectant ladies. However, here we will talk about ultrasonic devices used in beauty industry.

What is an ultrasound therapy?

There are two main uses of ultrasound in beauty sector for skin tightening and lifting. Firstly, it is used to improve ageing skin’s texture: reducing fine lines such as crow’s feet, coarser texture of the skin, sagging and wrinkling. It temporarily increases skin's permeability to various skin care products, which means it can be used for topical application of active ingredients. Another use of ultrasound is called ultrasonic cavitation. It is used for body contouring as an alternative to surgical liposuction. ..

As she aged, Sandi Bachom, 69, a filmmaker and producer in Manhattan, tried Botox to keep the inevitable wrinkles away, but she was wary of anything more invasive. She wanted, as she explained recently, to avoid “going under the knife.” [Source: Ultherapy.com]

So a couple of years ago, at the suggestion of her dermatologist, Dr. David Colbert, she fi rst tried Ultherapy, in which ultrasound waves are shot through a gel into the skin. She had the treatment on her face and neck, particularly the tricky jowls. ..

There's a long list of youthful desires we have as we age. This post from Allure.com goes over different treatments we can do for immediate results. One item on the list targeted the neck, and we at Radiance Medspa in Avon have a solution for you. Here's what Allure had to say about achieving a more youthful looking neck.

"If dermatologists and aestheticians wore black capes instead of white coats, you might mistake them for magicians. The experts wave infrared wands and prescribe seemingly supernatural ingredients, radically reversing signs of aging. But they also have subtler, more nuanced tricks up their sleeves. In a matter of hours, and sometimes minutes, doctors can perform quick, comfortable procedures that leave you looking brighter, tauter, and years younger. Believe it or not, they can even refine the shape of your nose (with absolutely no skin off it). Sun spots, spider veins, droopy jowls, dullness—now you see them, now you don't.  ..
