🍁 Start taking care of your post-summer dry skin with a hydrating body lotion

Capsular contracture is a complication that this RealSelf patient experienced three times.
Based on the research done on the topic and my medical expertise, what is certain is that any implant placed above the pectoralis muscle has a higher rate of capsular contracture.
We also know that when placed above the muscle, textured implants are less likely to cause capsular contracture than smooth implants.
Overall, it doesn't matter who the manufacturer is, saline or silicone, smooth or textured, round or contoured, etc. If you've developed capsular contracture several times in the past, you're likely to get it again.
Feel free to contact me for any other doubts you may have on plastic surgery procedures 💚
Is acne all the same? Mmm, definitively not! ⛔
There are 3️⃣ main types of acne:
👉 Blackheads - Open bumps on the skin that fill with excess oil and dead skin
👉 Whiteheads - which develop when dead skin cells, sebum (oil), and dirt clog your pores
👉 Cystic Acne - Pus-filled pimples that can cause scars
Each type of acne requires a specific treatment 🤔
For example, salicylic acid is preferred for treating blackheads and whiteheads, breaking down excess oil and dead-skin cells, while stronger treatments, like isotretinoin (Accutane), are used for cystic acne.
Are you struggling with acne? Always talk to your doctor about the best solution for your unique skin!

July: fun in the ☀️, beach trips, summer adventures, and ... UV rays!
This month, for UV Safety Awareness Month, be smart about your sun exposure and make sure you're taking the right precautions 📚🤓
Extended exposure to UV light rays can lead to signs of premature aging and damage of your skin, such as wrinkles and liver spots, and even most skin cancers, including melanoma, basal cell, and squamous cell cancers.
Taking care of yourself during the hottest months can look like this:
💛Choosing the right sunscreen - with a SPF of at least 15 and UV-A and UV-B rays coverage
💛 Covering up - with a good hat, sunglasses, and long sleeved shirts
💛 Staying in the shade - in the most intense hours, from 10 am to 4pm
Are you already taking these precautions? 😎
A sweet reminder to start the week 💛
Embrace your beautiful self, define your beauty, and never let anyone else tell you otherwise!
Can't decide? I got you 😉
Chemical peels are acids that sink into the skin and create microscopic wounds. Your body's response is to create new, healthy skin cells and rush collagen to the area (the perfect recipe for healthier looking skin)!
Vi peels, on the other hand, are a specific type of chemical peel that targets unwanted pigment changes like age spots, freckles, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Which one do you choose ? 💚 or 💛?
