Lasers provide an anti-aging platform that does not use neurotoxins, harsh chemicals on the surface of the skin, or injection of animal-based products or synthetics into the skin. It does not have a risk of infection at injection sites or allergic reaction to topical or injected substances.

Laser treatments are light-based therapies that heat deeper layers of skin to stimulate collagen formation, target dilated blood vessels, correct diffuse redness, reduce wrinkles, and more.

We use “Lunch Hour” procedures, which are non-invasive and have no down-time.

 

We offer Laser Services with a Cutera Laser to:

Tighten skin on your neck, jowls and underarms.

We offer Titan, which uses infrared light, to tighten the dermis, in a two session package.

Minimize redness, wrinkles and pore size and even your skin tone.

We offer Laser Genesis in a three session package or for individual touch-ups 

Lighten brown spots.

We offer IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, which targets hyperpigmentation.

Erase small face veins and spider veins.

We offer Laser Vein Treatments, which deliver pulses of light to coagulate blood in the vessel, which is eventually reabsorbed, and blood is redirected to deeper veins–where it should be!

Treat toenail fungus.

We offer Laser Onchomycosis Treatments, which eradicate fungus in one or two treatments, avoiding the need for daily medication or daily applications of anti-fungal lacquer.

Various experiments have found wearing the color red is more likely to get you a date. Another new study suggests that a green hue can convince you that a candy bar isn’t really that unhealthy.

As part of a study published in Health Communication, Jonathon Schuldt,  of Cornell University, asked 93 college students to imagine they were in a grocery store checkout line, hungry and looking at candy bars. Then he showed them an image of a candy bar with a green or a red calorie label, and asked them how healthy they thought the candy relative to other candy bars, and whether they thought it had more or fewer calories. They thought the candy bar with the green label was a healthier option than the red one, despite the fact that had the same number of calories. Continue reading »

Red Lentil Soup with “C” Spices

December 14th, 2012

redlentils It’s hard to find time to make healthy dinners during the busy holiday season.  Here’s help: a simple, quick vegetarian soup that takes ten minutes of preparation time and twenty minutes to simmer. Coriander, cardamon, cloves, and cinnamon team up with more traditional soup spices like cumin, cayenne pepper, chili pepper and curry to add an exotic flavor. You probably have many of these “C” spices on hand for holiday cookies. With this soup, you’ll pull them out more than once a year!  Customize the spice combination and vary the flavors the next time you make it.  It’s high in protein and fiber, low in fat and calories, and doesn’t really need salt. Enjoy!

1 small onion, chopped (use pre-diced onions to save time)
1/4 cup chopped red pepper, optional
1 tablespoon olive oil or coconut oil
1 cup red split lentils, rinsed well
4 cups water (or broth)
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne and/or chili pepper (more to taste)
1/4 teaspoon cardamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Optional: 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt

Saute onion (and red pepper) in oil in a thick-bottomed pot until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, rinse the lentils in a sieve.  Add the rinsed lentils to the translucent onion in the pot alnog with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil, and add spices. Simmer for 20 minutes.  Adjust spices as desired.
