Emerging Trends

Woman Applying MakeupEveryone wants to look their best, and while some wish to do so through various topical treatments, others wish to augment their looks with surgical or non-invasive procedures.

As the years keep flying by, new trends in staying youthful are always taking hold, and the “old favorites” stay popular.


• Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) — PRP has been used for years in other specialties to assist with wound healing because it is rich in growth factors and is emerging in the non-surgical aesthetic industry. By applying PRP either in a minimally invasive fashion, or by injecting it into specific areas of the face, you can induce new collagen formation and create a beautiful more youthful appearance.

• Ultherapy — Ulthera offers a fast treatment for skin contouring and wrinkles. With very little recovery time, Ulthera allows patients to have firm and more radiant skin without surgery.

• Injections of dermal fillers — Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, or Sculptra have been used to fill in lines and wrinkles are now being used to add volume to the face. Restoring facial volume can give the face a more youthful appearance. Also, injections of purified proteins such as Botox is used to weaken facial muscles that cause wrinkles.

10 Male Beauty Tips

4.1.1Male grooming is becoming more similar to the female grooming routine. Men these days are taking a lot more pride in their physical appearance and want to look great when going out into the public eye. There are many new products and treatments on the market geared to improving the personal appearance of men. Our own Donna Fay shares her top 10 male beauty tips.


1) Toss your razor and opt for laser hair removal: These days shaving is optional. For silky smooth skin without the razor bumps, laser hair removal is a great option that will keep you hair free for your night out. Go for the pain free/ hair free/ care free more long lasting solution.

2) Embrace Self-Tanning: Men should embrace self-tanning, especially gradual self-tanners. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation “ There is a 5.1 increase in the incidence of skin cancer in Men.” Donna says “Dudes- Protect yourself!” Daily SPF is essential to your daily skincare regime.

3) Exfoliate: Push Fido to the side, Exfoliating is your new best friend. Exfoliating cleansers and masks are a man’s best asset for cell turnover.

4) Keep your lips soft: Men need soft lips too. Apply lip balm/chapstick and slosh the dead skin from lips with a toothbrush.

5) Don’t neglect the brows: Men need to maintain their brows as much as women do. Come to The Park for the shape that’s perfect for your face.

6) Male Laser Lift: Don’t forget about the nuts and berries with our Perfect lasers. Remove discoloration from ingrown hairs, skin tags, overall general improvement of tone and texture in the area.

7) No Grandpa Eyes: You can have an in-office procedure using Botox and filler. If needles scare you then try Cell Repair Serum to cause cell turnover and minimize lines and wrinkles without irritation.

8) Don’t Forget Your Water and Vitamins: The Daily Multi Protect gives you your daily dose of vitamins and encourages your water intake.

9) Make sure to remove pore-causing products at night. Products like men’s hair gel and sculpting paste can be transferred to the skin and clog facial pores—causing breakouts. It’s important to wash face nightly and you’re your skin a breath of fresh air.

10) Keep nails groomed: You don’t need a full-blown manicure but its important to keep nails tidy. Keep nails regularly trimmed and filed, and clip hang nails. No biting!

Bonus tip: Great shoes and socks (I always notice a fun design on socks) are a must. (Don’t have to be expensive to be stylish – clean and nice)

Are You Aging Too Quickly?


Are You Aging Too Quickly? The beauty experts help you decide at Pearlman Aesthetics , a highly regarded Plastic surgeon in New York, is known as a go-to resource for professional, experienced assistance regarding anti-aging and other cosmetic concerns. From facial rejuvenation to non-surgical and surgical lifts, the professionals at this facility offer a wide range of services to individuals who are looking for a way to fight the signs of aging—and with today’s high-speed lifestyle, these signs appear faster than some may realize.

A recent article published by the Huffington Post shares five different signs that an individual is aging prematurely. Premature aging occurs when the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, uneven skin tone, and more, start to appear earlier than normal. The article explains: “Aging is inevitable but looking old before your time is not. Many factors can accelerate aging, everything from smoking to a lack of exercise. But, fortunately, many of these factors are under our control.”

The Beauty Experts at Pearlman Aesthetics agree, as they work daily with individuals who are looking to turn back the hands of the clock and reinvigorate their appearance. While aging is not something that people can avoid forever, it is a process that can be slowed with today’s medical breakthroughs and an understanding of a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle.

The first sign that the article provides is that an individual has a larger number of wrinkles than they should for their age. Additionally, the development of jowls shows that the skin is loose. Ultimately, yo-yo dieting can cause this issue, as the skin is continually stretching and retracting when individuals fluctuate greatly in their weight. Furthermore, eating a diet that does not support skin health can result in skin that is unable to bounce back from weight fluctuations, regardless if individuals yo-yo diet or lose weight and keep it off. As such, it is important for individuals to improve their diet with foods focused on boosting skin health.

The next sign that the article highlights is droopy eyelids. This is natural, as the skin around the eyes stretches as it ages and the muscles beneath it tend to weaken. For many individuals, cosmetic surgery is the way to go when addressing significant droopiness; however, there are non-surgical ways in which individuals can improve this aspect of their appearance, including staying hydrated, cutting down on sodium intake, and getting more sleep each night.

The third sign is also related to the eyes: premature aging can lead to red eyes. Basically, the article states, “Swollen or dilated blood vessels can make your eyes look red or bloodshot—as well as old. Sitting in front of a computer all day, and not getting enough sleep, can cause redness in eyes. Putting a cold compress on your eyes for 10-minute stretches should help. But you should seek help from a doctor if you have persistently red eyes.”

The fourth sign that the article offers is impaired hearing. In many cases, wax blockage may cause this issue and the removal of the problem can greatly improve hearing capabilities. In other cases, though, hearing aids may be necessary.It is important for individuals who are experiencing hearing loss to talk to their doctors and keep an eye on their health, as this condition has been linked to others, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Finally, the last sign that the article provides is that individuals wake up with dry mouths. Also called cotton mouth, this is an extremely uncomfortable situation that can be sparked by a number of things, ranging from smoking to certain pharmaceuticals to the aging process. Sprays may help the mouth to avoid getting dry by sparking the production of additional saliva. Additionally, drinking water, reducing caffeine consumption, and chewing gum can help, too.

The Beauty experts encourages Dot therapy for Anti-Aging. The Beauty experts understand that slowing the aging process is an important priority for many people. With so many different treatment options on today’s market, there is certainly a procedure out there for everyone. One of the most exciting is Dot therapy, which is a new approach to anti-aging that uses fractional resurfacing of the skin. The goal of the Dot therapy system is to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while improving skin tone and texture, tightening loose skin, and diminishing scarring.

Ultherapy works by emitting ultrasound energy. This energy heats the skin and creates an environment in which molecular vibration takes place. This vibration leads to collisions of the molecules and, ultimately, the resurfacing of the skin. Because of the nature of this treatment option, the Beauty Experts explain that Dot Therapy can be used on many parts of the body, including the neck, face, chest, hands, extremities, and back. Furthermore, the professionals at Dr Pearlmans assert, this treatment is well suited to a wider range of skin types than others.

The beauty experts at Pearlman Aesthtics are known as a wonderful resource for individuals in NYC and surrounding areas who are looking to slow down the aging process and mature in a graceful manner. As such, the Beauty Experts working at Dr Perlmans encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about the signs of premature aging or the Ulthera and Dot therapy procedure to call the facility today.

Why mushrooms will give you better skin

Eating healthy is one way to have great skin, though you can also benefit by having skin care products made from some natural ingredients that you may not typically associate with skin care. Mushrooms have become one of those items that taste good in recipes, and when used in skin care products can produce amazing results.

Shiitake mushrooms have been used throughout ancient Japanese culture for centuries as a skin care product. The mushrooms are rich in naturally exfoliating nutrients due to the high levels of L-ergothioneine which is an antioxidant. This use can aide in the breakdown of dead skin cells and help in removing them to uncover brighter, healthier skin underneath. This is an organic option for exfoliation, as the mushrooms can be used in lieu of harsh chemicals.

One of the other uses of products containing shiitake mushrooms is the benefit of naturally occurring Kojic acid. Kojic acid is useful in lightening dark spots on the skin, brightening the tone and appearance of skin and even helping to fade sun and liver spots and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Though chemically induced forms of skin rejuvenation can be found, opting for a mushroom based solution is gentler and more effective on your skin.

The ability to help reduce inflammation, offer anti-aging benefits, brighten skin tone, improve skin elasticity and provide an allover radiant appearance are one of the reasons why skin care containing mushrooms are useful in having better skin. Mushrooms have been used for centuries due to their amazing skin care and beauty abilities.
