Hollywood Smile-You can have it too!

Being a little girl I’ve often dreamt of a white beautiful smile. I bought special tooth paste, was using baking soda and even coal (!) to achieve better color. Back then Hollywood smile seemed hard to attain and was reserved only for people from, well, Hollywood. Since then I tried whitening strips and gels and certaily...

How to choose a cream for your face

My patients ask me for skin care advice every day. Many of them bring multiple bottles they’ve bought on QVC promising eternal youth.

Natural or Plastic-depends on your injector

Cosmetic medicine is not a rocket science, anybody can learn how to do it. Aging and proportions of the face is a science however, and not everyone who injects knows it. Taste and aesthetics you can’t acquire, it’s something you either have or you don’t. As a patient it’s hard to know exactly what you...
