'Anti-aging' hormone may do exactly the opposite

'Anti-aging' hormone may do exactly the opposite | Body Beautiful | Scoop.it
Call it anti-anti-aging therapy. It turns out that injections of growth hormone — a staple of anti-aging, hormone-replacement therapy — may have the opposite effect as intended, thwarting a person's quest to live to an advanced age. In an ongoing study of very old people, those in their 90s with naturally low levels of human growth hormone appear to have a far better chance of living into their 100s compared with people who have above-average levels of the hormone.

Plastic surgeons raise alarm over illegal beauty treatments

Plastic surgeons raise alarm over illegal beauty treatments | Body Beautiful | Scoop.it

Overseas doctors are illegally performing cosmetic procedures including Botox injections, laser treatments and chemical face peels on Hongkongers - and the local authorities are powerless to stop them.


Local plastic surgeons raised the alarm over the procedures, often conducted in hotel rooms in the city, after having to fix the damage caused by botched treatments. The doctors are breaking the law because they are not registered with the Medical Council, but are likely to leave the city long before the police or health officials can act.

Can you eat your way to beauty? A new book says, 'absolutely'

Can you eat your way to beauty? A new book says, 'absolutely' | Body Beautiful | Scoop.it

“Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out” by Jolene Hart came across my desk at the perfect time. As I’ve mentioned recently, for the first time in many years I’m having success with managing the amount I eat and taking off pounds that really needed to go. With that has come an interest in the rest of my appearance. For the first time in my adult life, I'm setting aside some time to focus on beauty.

 

Jolene’s advice in “Eat Pretty” is going to empower me to focus on my beauty in a natural way. She’s a former magazine beauty editor who had access to any beauty product she desired, but she had a problem. She had persistent skin problems all those beauty products couldn’t fix. She took prescription antibiotics for acne and tried over-the-counter creams, gels, lotions and washes for acne and eczema. None of them worked for her.

But the latest facial treatments will also use advanced technology to deliver radiant and younger skin. And here are just some of the hottest new facial treatments that use the latest in technology.
