Antioxidants provide protection from free radicals that cause damage deep within the skin. Unlike sunscreens that protect skin from UV rays, antioxidants prevent skin damage caused by other environmental aggressors such as infrared radiation, pollution, cigarette smoke, alcohol, and more. SkinCeuticals antioxidants have also been proven to reverse skin damage, including fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Why are SkinCeuticals products different?
SkinCeuticals products are backed by science from the first stages of their development through the packaging of the final formulations. Extensive medical-grade clinical testing that proves our products’ efficacy sets SkinCeuticals apart from other cosmeceutical brands on the market. One of the first lines to employ antioxidants, the premise of this science-heavy brand is to prevent, protect and correct from the outside in.
Please call our office at (817) 473-2120 and set up a skin care consultation with one of our aestheticians. They can tell you which SkinCeuticals products will be best for your skin.

What’s your morning routine? I wake up between 5 and 6 a.m. and the first thing I do is drink a bottle of water with chlorophyll drops in it. I eat a pint of organic raspberries and blueberries then make a smoothie with spinach, celery, cucumber, ginger, cinnamon, flax, apple and banana. Depending on where I have to be and how I have to look, it can take me anywhere from five minutes (brushing my teeth and putting on sunscreen) to 20 minutes to get out the door. Which products do reach for while getting ready? I use Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap and Yes to Blueberries Body Wash and then use coconut oil as a moisturizer as soon as I get out of the shower. I never leave the house without my Elta MD Skincare Broad Spectrum SPF 45! What’s a day at work like? I drive to a private gym and train one to two clients and then drive to the studios to train clients in between shoots. I drive to the gym for myself and then pop home to shower, let the dogs out and answer emails. Then I drive to a particular client’s home to train, and finally to Barry’s Bootcamp to teach my master class. I drive a lot! What do you eat for lunch and dinner? Do you ever snack? I eat anytime between 12 and 1 p.m. and snack before and after, too, which usually consists of red peppers, almonds or flax crackers with avocado. I always have water on me at all times and my lunch is usually a giant kale or mixed green salad with salmon or quinoa. For dinner, I always have a salad to start and then vegetables like brussel sprouts, cauliflower or sweet potatoes with either chicken or steak, depending on my mood. What do you do when you’re out of work? I love my job but when I get off I’m exhausted! I usually just come home and prepare for the next day. I’ll eat dinner, and then watch some TV with lights out by 10p.m. Beauty sleep is required! Any new products you’re excited about? One of my best friends is an aesthetician who has created the most amazing, handmade face oil called Dew Skin Oil. I’m pretty obsessed with it and use it in place of my moisturizer and then put it on top of my serums at night, or sometimes alone to soothe my skin. Are there any surprising steps in your beauty routine? There’s nothing too crazy, but as soon as I’m done working out, I use pads to remove dirt and sweat. Also, before a photo shoot, I rub an ice cube all over my face to help de-puff and tighten my skin! What’s something we would be surprised to know about you? In high school, I couldn’t run the one-mile gym class requirement around the soccer field and had absolutely zero endurance—now I love to run!

In a recent article on RTTNews.com – it announces that The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said that it approved the VenaSeal closure system to permanently treat varicose veins of the legs by sealing the affected superficial veins using an adhesive agent. The VenaSeal Closure system is manufactured by Covidien LLC, based in Morrisville, North Carolina.
Varicose veins often cause no symptoms but some patients may experience mild to moderate pain, blood clots, skin ulcers or other problems, according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health. If these issues occur, health care professionals may recommend treatment such as compression stockings or medical procedures to remove or close the affected veins. The VenaSeal system is intended for patients with superficial varicose veins of the legs that cause symptoms. The sterile kit is made up of an adhesive, a specially formulated n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate, and delivery system components that include a catheter, guidewire, dispenser gun, dispenser tips, and syringes. The FDA noted that the device must be used as a system and differs from procedures that use drugs, laser, radio waves or cuts in the skin to close or remove veins. A trained healthcare professional inserts the catheter through the skin into the diseased vein to allow injection of the VenaSeal adhesive, a clear liquid that polymerizes into solid material. The healthcare professional monitors proper placement of the catheter using ultrasound imaging during delivery of the adhesive into the diseased vein to seal it. The FDA warned that the VenaSeal system should not be used in patients who have a known hypersensitivity to the VenaSeal adhesive, acute inflammation of the veins due to blood clots or acute whole-body infection. Adverse events observed in the trial and generally associated with treatments of this condition included vein inflammation (phlebitis) and burning or tingling (paresthesia) in the treatment zone.

Today’s aesthetic patient does not want to look good . . . they expect to look fantastic! These patients have high treatment expectations and are willing to pay for great results even in a difficult economic climate. Let me echo that again: patients are willing to pay for great results. But, the results and the experience must be extraordinary. This all begins with the critical aesthetic consult. I believe that the consult is the single differentiating factor between thriving practices and those that struggle. I continue to be amazed (and disappointed) in the lack of time and effort, many practices dedicate to the consult. Understanding a patient’s cosmetic goals goes a long way to achieving complete patient satisfaction and long term loyalty. The main purpose of all aesthetic consults is to find the “Real Reason” why your patient wants to look better —it almost always has very little to do with the initial stated reason. When in fact you find this reason, it yields a raw emotional response from the patient. If you can evoke that emotional response, you are on the threshold creating a loyal patient for life, but this takes time, effort, and good listening skills. As I’ve said many times, it’s about paying attention to the details. Always try to avoid the temptation to prejudge the patient. It is important to understand that it’s not their hormone level or the size of their wallet. It’s the wiring of their DNA; some patients are just wired for aesthetics. Those that are, will seek your services and if satisfied beyond their own expectations, will pay happily for them. In every patient consult, first ask the patient to identify their facial features that they like. Tastefully point out what you see as their positive features and congratulate them on these great genetics. Then, with their permission, honestly and carefully show them the issues that need to be addressed. I call it “Face Whispering.” Patients often have a specific cosmetic concern but rarely see other areas in need of treatment. I call this mono- or selective focus. To fully engage the patient in a successful discussion on full face reflation that will yield the best result, you must first convince the patient to look beyond their single concern and describe the face in a three-dimensional way. As part of my blueprint to the consult I also find that showing patients their baseline photographs is very effective in gaining their confidence. I have a dedicated camera room and take many pictures daily. I show patients their baseline photos from all views so they can see the whole face. In addition, I give patients an assignment to bring in a youthful picture of themselves, say in their early twenties. By comparing this youthful photo with their baseline, I’m able to discuss harmony, balance and symmetry, and identify for them areas that require attention. It is important to tell patients that the goal is not to make them look “20 again,” rather to restore some of their natural features to look great for their age. This whole exercise helps patients understand why we look at and treat the whole face. Simply put, the consult is integral to the success of your practice. If you truly want to take your practice to the next level, improve your patient consultation style; dedicate more focused time to your patient in order to understand his/her expectations and desires; carefully transition them to focus on the whole face; and finally, incorporate the most innovative products and techniques into practice. Earn their trust and the right to treat them, create an extraordinary result and watch the barrier of price disappear. Article by B. Kent Remington, MD, FRCP Co-Founder, The Aesthetic BluePrint

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday it has approved a new device to treat obesity, the first since 2007, sending shares of its maker, EnteroMedics Inc, up as much as 74 percent. Known as the Maestro Rechargeable System, the device controls hunger and feelings of fullness by targeting the nerve pathway between the brain and the stomach. It is implanted surgically into the abdomen and works by sending electrical pulses that interfere with the activity of the vagus nerve, which signals to the brain that the stomach is empty. The device can be recharged by the patient and healthcare professionals can adjust its settings using external controllers. A 12-month clinical study showed that patients implanted with the device lost 8.5 percent more weight than the control group. That did not meet the main goal of the clinical trial, which was to show weight loss of 10 percent or more. But an FDA advisory panel considered additional data and concluded that the benefits of the device outweighed the risks for certain patients. The device is approved to treat patients aged 18 and older who have not been able to lose weight with a weight-loss program, who have a body mass index of 35 to 45 and have at least one other obesity-related condition, such as Type II diabetes. A person with a BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. Despite the approval, the prospects for the device will depend on insurers being willing to pay for it, a process that could take up to two years, analysts estimate. As part of the approval, the company must conduct a five-year study that will follow at least 100 patients and collect additional safety and effectiveness data. Serious side effects reported in the clinical study included nausea, pain, vomiting and surgical complications. More than a third of U.S. adults are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, placing them at greater risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer. Other surgical treatments for obesity include gastric banding systems that limit the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. The company’s shares were 23 percent higher at $1.45 in mid-morning trading on Nasdaq from a close of $1.18. Earlier in the day they rose as high as $2.05.

... It has been one year since I had an abdominoplasty performed by Dr. Bishara and I wanted to share my experience and why I would recommend him for the procedure. I first saw Dr. Bishara back in September 2019 for a consultation for a tummy tuck. Dr. Bishara was incredibly kind and patient, taking the time to explain to me the difference between a full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck. We agreed to move forward with a mini tummy tuck and I scheduled my procedure. On the day of my procedure Dr. Bishara told me he had reviewed my profile and pictures and felt that I would not be fully satisfied with a mini tummy tuck and recommended I allow him to do a full tummy tuck with no extra cost to me, since we had already agreed to a mini. I agreed and we went ahead. Unfortunately, the results were not what I expected and I was not fully satisfied with the aesthetic appearance of my scar. Dr. Bishara and his staff were incredibly understanding and informed me that they would do everything in their power to make sure I was satisfied with the results. I went back and forth for one year giving myself a full year to recover from the first procedure. During that year, Dr. Bishara and his staff took the time to meet with me several times and worked diligently with me to ensure I felt comfortable moving forward. I am sure my unending questions and requests to meet with Dr. Bishara were not the most convenient for him or his staff, but they were always patient, kind and incredibly understanding. This past October Dr. Bishara performed a scar revision procedure on me and the results were fabulous! Everything is healing very well and I am more than pleased with the results. I greatly appreciated Dr. Bishara and his staff and their diligence in working hard to ensure I was fully satisfied with my results. I highly recommend Paragon Plastic Surgery for your cosmetic surgery needs. Thank you Dr. Bishara and the entire Paragon staff.read more

... Dr. Bishara told me my hair transplant would change my life....and It did... Financially! 15K and my hair looks about the same 15 months after the transplant. I do have limited growth in the procedure areas but not the thick or full coverage I expected. I am disappointed to say the least and now stuck with the option of shaving my investment..
During a follow up consultation in July 2018 (procedure done May 2017) Dr. Bishara said I had continued to have hair loss and asked me what I was doing to counter the continued hair loss.... Nothing was my answer because this was not discussed until now. I really think this is his go to excuse... Some of his other reviews say the same! I would think this would be something that should be discussed extensively as a possibility before the procedure and not after, but that might be bad for business! When I brought up the fact that Dr. Bishara had given me his word that he always makes things right... He told me he felt we had exhausted my donor area and that another transplant would not be an option... If you are considering a hair transplant I would think long and hard about what your expectations are and ask whatever doctor you use, what is the worst case scenario for me and options if the procedure does not give you the results you expect!read more
... Doctor’s bedside manner was great, but the staff from beginning to end, treated me like a number, eager to get me in and out so they can go about their stuff. Im new to all of these procedures, and this is a small business, so I was expecting more sincere genuine care from them. I also didn’t see any results, not even after several treatments. I did everything that was recommended. I’m so upset that I don’t even want to call and complain because I know it wouldn’t matter to a place like this. They never followed up with me to see how my results turned out. A business that cares and who want efficient work for their patients always make sure you’re happy. especially when thousands of dollars is wasted. I do
not recommend them.read more
... Extremely unprofessional! Doctor has no bed side manner and works on people appearance judges them. But yet he is sloopy and doesn't take care of his own self. The staff always seems so unhappy. I would avoid the place at all cost.read more
... For hair restoration, this is the absolute last place you want to be. He is not an expert, he is only good at selling you that he is. He has good bedside manner but do not let that fool you (He fooled me. I thought I had found a great doctor but I was so wrong). He is extremely dishonest when reviewing results. He promises the world then only delivers 10% of what he promised. When you call him out on it, he blames you the patient for the poor results... it is so distasteful, it makes me sick to my stomach that I trusted him. I had multiple surgeries with this doctor, I was foolish to trust him but I did and still came away with terrible results. I want other people to avoid that experience which is why I am writing this review.People who are losing their hair are already in enough pain then you go to a doctor thinking you can trust them to help your situation but instead Dr. Bishara exploits you, compounding that pain. He may respond to this review refuting it or trying to explain away what happened to me, that is expected.Go see a doctor who specializes in hair restoration not someone who buys an expensive machine and does hair on the side to make more money. Find a good doctor and do not make an emotional decision like I did by going with the first doctor you visit because you just want to get more hair right away.You do not have to take my word for it but I hope it leads you to more research for your own hair restoration.(My name is not on the review because this is a private medical matter)read more
... Very disappointed of this place, if you want to do something to feel better and look good this is not the right place, go to a real doctor that care about his patients not only for the money, this doctor only made me lose my Money is sad people like him we call them doctors I am very disappointed how he treaded me and he dint do what I ask him to do even if a show him picture and still leave my bumps and bruises if u r planing get something done please do not go to this place u will regret when u see that u money went to the trash and he will never going to help u or fix something that he having doing wrong, and honestly I do not want you to feel like I do, I don’t want this happen to you, I hope before u got here think twice and no later be sad like I’m is so many places and I’m sure so many real Doctors that cares for their patients. I went to this place and ask nicely to fix what he did wrong he couldn’t help me or do anything about it. So please please think twice before u go to this place and see Doctor Mark A Bishara .read more
