Whether you're about to see your aesthetic specialist or your primary care physician, it's important to be ready for the questions they might ask. Write down medications you have taken, illnesses you might have gotten, or tests and screenings you had in the past few months. Remember to be honest in answering their questions so they can better help you!

Botox vs. Fillers Explained
(http://ow.ly/yU3230mXFGy)

Botox and dermal fillers are both non-invasive cosmetic procedures that reduce the visible appearance of aging skin. However, they work in very different ways. Botox is a purified form of a toxin that works by paralyzing your facial muscles to reduce wrinkles. Dermal fillers are injectables that add volume to your face or plump up your skin.

AquaGold Microneedling: The Gold Standard
(http://ow.ly/n7sv30mXFGv)

You may have heard of do-it-yourself microneedling rollers and tools. The problem with these is that you risk causing yourself irritation or even injury if you use needles that are too long, if your skin is not cleaned correctly, or if you are too aggressive in technique. Trust the AquaGold microneedling system instead. AquaGold uses gold needles which have anti-irritation and anti-allergic properties and are hollow, allowing for better delivery of treatment serums.

Beyond Botox: Understanding Injectables and Fillers
(http://ow.ly/g7Nr30mXFGm)

You may have already heard the hype about how injectables and fillers can offer you flawless, youthful skin. But how exactly do they work? Some injectables, like the famous Botox, work by relaxing muscles to reduce your wrinkles. Others, like Juvederm, work by replacing the natural hyaluronic acid found in your skin to provide natural plumpness. Both of them are minimally-invasive procedures that can be done on your lunch break, making them the perfect choice for a busy lifestyle.

Laser Hair Removal Works for Most Skin Tones
(http://ow.ly/UrCs30mXFGk)

Previously, many people with darker skin tones were put off laser hair removal because they worried it wouldn’t work for them or could even be bad for their skin. However, thanks to recent advancements in laser technology, people with dark skin can still see spectacular results. As long as a certified specialist administers your treatment, laser hair removal has few risks or side effects, whatever your skin tone.

Ready for Your Annual Skin Exam?
(http://ow.ly/eQVe30mXFGi)

Skin exams are an important part of keeping healthy. Skin cancer is among the most common forms of cancer, but it's also among the most treatable. It's still important to diagnose and treat it as soon as you can. You should keep careful track of any moles to check for changes in their shape, size, or color. In addition, come in for a skin exam at least once a year as well, especially if you have a history of skin cancer or have lots of exposure to the sun.
