Kybella, does it work

I've seen many advertisements for this chemical that is injected into the double chin. In the before and after photos in the advertisements the results look amazing. The fat under the chin has almost disappeared. Are there any side effects with this treatment? How much does it cost? Would facial exe...

Facial Muscle Mobility

I have read many times that people with mobile faces, people who smile and laugh often, develop premature lines in the face. The theory is that mobility of the facial muscles will have a negative effect on the overlying skin, that it will cause the skin to become lined. It does make sense to me that...

Stem cells, hype or reality for good skin?

On the cosmetic counter I am overwhelmed by "stem cells" in many products. Is this new chemical technology really beneficial for the skin, keeping it young, or is it just some marketing jargon to jazz up some old cosmetic formulas? I'd like to believe what I read and what I see in the comm...

Bad facial posture - what is it?

I recently read that one's usual facial expressions if they are positive, like smiling, are associated with a positive, happy, mood. I guess that this would imply that a customary frown or a down turned mouth would be associated with a darker mood. You often mention "facial posture" in you...

Stem cell nutrition

There are cosmetic products being advertised that use stem cells as the selling point. One supplement product says that the stuff in the capsule stimulates the release of stem cells from the bone marrow. These stem cells then may land in the skin and refresh it. Some of the testimonials hint of fast...

Sun damage to skin, any hope?

I have a few precancerous lesions on my face and neck. They cannot be seen after I apply my makeup but after I wash my face in the morning they are evident. Some of the topical medications my dermatologist recommends will make my skin look horrible for several months and I don't like this thought. I...

Neck strain, exercise 4

I do exercise 4 for the muscles at the front of the neck almost every day and a lot of reps. Maybe I am overdoing the exercise because sometimes I feel a small pain in the front of my neck after an especially long session. I try to get full extension and contraction of the neck muscles by moving my ...

Re: Is there any procedure to get rid of fat under the chin?

Keeping always slim is the way to keep a trim neck and a clean jaw line. Once you put on weight and some of that weight lodges in the neck area, it is hard to get it off. The exercise that you describe for the front of the neck is helpful though. I do this one every day and I do it with good form, t...

Re: Yogurt, Live and Active Cultures?

Kate, I have been eating the low-fat, plain yogurt from Kroger. It's called Blended and has the live and active cultures. I have it with blueberries and walnuts. It tastes great. I also tried the more expensive Private Selection Organic yogurt from Kroger. It's OK but I don't like the taste nearly a...

Wrinkled skin and bone density

I saw those few paragraphs in which you cited a study from Yale University. The research indicates that premature wrinkling of the skin of the face can mean that the bones of the body are thinning. I wonder if this also means that the bones of the face are losing their density too. This would have i...
