Looking for some “beauty hacks” to transform your look in the new year? Look no further. Dr Monica Tadros, Beauty Expert and Facial Plastic Surgeon located at Park Ave NYC, offers two huge tips and tricks that you’ll love!
Coconut oil is for more than just cooking. The properties of coconut oil contain antimicrobial lipids with antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. The oil component creates a wonderful soothing moisture barrier to help treat all dry skin and diminish the signs of aging skin. It can help prevent or improve skin conditions associated with dryness such as eczema, dermatitis and certain skin infections. It is safe to use on your face at night if you require heavy moisturizing and I prefer it to Aquaphor after aesthetic skin procedures such as microneedling, chemical peels and lasers to heal the skin. The best part is it smells nice and is quickly absorbed by the skin after a shower, so it doesn’t feel sticky or stain your clothes like other oils might.
Bellafill, an FDA approved filler is the latest trend for long-lasting results. It’s safety has been tested for well over five years in the treatment of nasolabial fold smile lines. It’s also proven safe and effective for the treatment of acne and other depressed scar conditions. It can only be injected by an experienced injector because a portion of the product is permanent. With 83 percent patient satisfaction at five years, it’s hard to ignore these results.
