Before Cosmetic Procedures: Decision Making

It’s  tempting to buy a Groupon or Daily Deal for Botox, Laser Treatment or Fillers.
Maybe you are new-bee to Botox or Fillers and the price is enticing.bigstock_Plastic_Surgery_7840819
So you book an appointment, only to either have a bad experience or spend more money than you planned.

Now, I’m not saying that all Groupons and Daily Deals are misleading or that the doctor is inexperienced  in the field of aesthetic medicine.

However, keep in mind that a busy practice or medical spa does not need  to advertise in Groupon and Daily Deals.

Buyer Beware.

With the continued explosion of cosmetic treatments and surgery plus the declining rate of insurance reimbursements for medical doctors, more non-core specialty doctors will decide enter this very lucrative business. Before you consider cosmetic procedures answer these questions first.

1.What are my expectations? My aesthetic goals?
2.What is my budget for consultations and the procedure?
3.Do I have the time to do the research on doctors or do I need more guidance ?
4.How many consultations will I go to?
5.Will I have the emotional support of my family both pre-op and post-op?
6.Does the procedure fit into my lifestyle?
7.Can I take the time I need to recover?


Your Image: Your Brand

Listen up! Did you know that your image is YOUR brand? Yes, when people meet you at a networking event, a live- webinar, video or a seminar or workshop- you are your brand.

What does that mean? The first impression people have of you is going to carry through to whatever message you are sending professionally.

We live in a visual society!!

All too often I see people, woman in particular, whose appearance is not congruent with their brand image. This does not mean that you have to look like a celebrity, have cosmetic surgery or get Botox injections.

Here are some friendly tips and suggestions to look your best whether it is online or in person. When you are looking good you feel good and your self confidence soars together with a healthy self-esteem.


Choosing Skincare Products: Ten Tips

“No more wrinkles in 6 days” ….“See the reduction of fine lines in less than 10 days”… “Dermatologists tested” “Clinically Proven” “Clinical Studies”…

Buyer beware. Magazines are full of claims from manufacturers touting new technologies and advances in skin care products. There is so much marketing hype today around skin care products that promise results, that it’s hard to know what really works.

If this wasn’t confusing enough, we are now in an age of ever-emerging new technologies and anti-aging breakthroughs. From “micro-beads” to stem cells, products are getting more and more complex both in what they’re made of and also how they are delivered to your skin. As exciting as this seems, it’s also questionable whether or not these new advances are really going to live up to their claims.Cosmeceuticals, high-end “Dr” brands, and everyone under the sun claiming to have the latest skin care can leave you   searching for the next best thing before you even get to the register. Even with seemingly potent active-ingredients, there is little regulation on what claims companies can make. You have to wonder, was the entire formulation tested or just the active ingredient? Who was the product tested on? If it was tested in a lab, how do we know it actually works on human skin cells?

So, what should you be on the lookout for to help you cut through the skin care product clutter?
