An Introduction to Non-Invasive Tissue Tightening:
Of the new choices of skin tightening procedures, the two that are best known are the proprietary procedures are Thermage and Titan. While these two treatments utilize different proprietary technology, the idea is essentially the same, in that they both aim to heat the deeper layer of the skin (the dermis) in order to effect a “healing response”. This healing response encourages increased collagen production and remodeling of existing collagen. Supportive underlying tissues of the skin contract, resulting in a tighter, more uplifted appearance to the skin. (more…)

There is no way out in winter time. So you start using a hair dryer. And hair suffers. What should be done to help?
Hair does not like high temperatures. Do not try out any super hair driers then. Under the influence of hot air the shells of a hair go up and the natural mist goes out of it. As a result, hair becomes dry, loses its gloss and it is unpleasant to touch. If you need to dry your hair quickly, firstly massage a moistening conditioner into it. Very good are so-called thermo-conditioning balms: if you put some onto the wet hair, it should protect hair from the hot air influence. Modern hair driers have “friendly” functions which allow their users to dry hair with warm and even cool stream of air. (more…)
