About Me

Welcome to all lovers of the art of beauty.

I started my blog for many reasons.  One of the main reasons is to cut through all the hype and misinformation in the Beauty and Cosmetic Surgery Industry.  I hope to educate my readers on how to separate fairy tales from the truth.

My mission is Safety and Education in Beauty. My passion stems from over 20 years of  experience in the beauty industry  as a Beauty Industry  insider,  plastic surgery publicist, consumer and patient.

As a consumer and patient I’ve had good results, bad results, and mediocre results. I’ve been given excellent information and misinformation about treatments. I’ve had  an allergic reaction to filler, encapsulated filler, lumps and  a scar caused by a laser resurfacing treatment.  As an early adopter to Botox injections (prior to FDA approval), I’ve been both over-Botox-ed and under Botox-ed.  I’ve looked like a duck, been bruised, swollen, red and scaly.  I’ve been treated by highly skilled dermatologists and plastic surgeons with both great and average results.

On the professional side, I’ve worked with skin care manufactures and chemists who formulate private label professional products for the medical market, as well as consumer brands.  As a publicist and marketer,  I’ve coached plastic surgeons, dermatologists, as well as other aesthetic  medical professionals.

All of my experiences has led to an increasing passion about  education and safety.

As the aesthetic  industry becomes increasingly competitive, more non-core specialty doctors will enter the field of cosmetic producers.  It is more  important than ever before that you are well-informed and make the right choice.

Personally, I’ll continue to use modern technology and treatments to stay looking as good I as can. I’m happy to be living in an “age” of medical cosmetic  wonders.

As a patient advocate and cosmetic surgery coach, I hope to make a difference through patient education.  Through collaboration with the medical community and aesthetic companies we can strive for a safer industry.
