Using Crystals to Improve Your Skin

That headline can bring to mind images of some New Age retreat in Northern California where there’s nothing but Yanni on the sound system, tofu in the restaurant, and crystals everywhere to be seen, aligning your soul…at least in theory. That’s not what we’re talking about here in Pennsylvania. At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery we use […]

Restylane® Adds New Filler Options

Most people who follow the aesthetic world at all know the name Botox and that it has something to do with the bacteria that cause botulism. Beyond that, there are people who know the various injectables and those for whom it all becomes a little cloudy. Even those who’ve heard of various fillers may not […]

Do You Need a Little Botox for Your Holiday Parties?

Botox is so well known people think it has been around for decades. And it has been, but not for removing wrinkles on the upper third of the face. Botox has a pretty long history of treating issues such as involuntary eyelid spasms and temporomandibular jaw disorders. But in 2002 Botox left the realm of […]

Lose the Hair for the Summer and Beyond

Dealing with unwanted hair can make you feel as if you’re in that movie Groundhog Day, where Bill Murray lived the same day over and over again. You get rid of the hair through shaving, plucking, waxing, and the like, and then a few weeks later there it is again. But you can get rid […]

Giving Fat the Laser Treatment

To Fill or to Block — That is the Question

Where’s the fun in that? Dealing with that facial aging isn’t really fun, either, but it is effective at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Delaware. We […]

Hit Your Unwanted Hair with a Photon Torpedo

Battling unwanted hair is so…Sisyphean. You shave. You wax. You pluck. You attack with chemical agents not far removed from napalm. And a couple weeks later the hair is back and you do it all over again. Ugh. But you can be freed from the ritual punishment of shaving permanently. At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of […]

Follow the Crystals For Better Skin

Admit it. When you saw that headline your first thought was to pull up Shirley Maclaine’s New Age blog and put on a Yanni CD. Uh, that’s not what we’re talking about at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Delaware. We’re talking about using crystals to abrade the top layer of your skin. Think of it as […]

Why Do Our Faces Age So Much?

Time has no master. No matter how much we exercise. No matter how much we avoid hot dogs and the like. No matter how much sunscreen we slather onto our skin. No matter what we do our skin still ages. Simply delaying time’s inexorable trajectory would be nice. Fortunately, the signs of aging, while unstoppable, […]
