    This is what everyone has been waiting for!!  An Injectable Filler designed to last.  Previously the only fillers available would last only 6 and at the most 8 months before you needed another injection. This produced Wallet and Needle Fatigue.  Now with ArteFill, we have a filler which in their 5 Year Study showed that the results at 5 years were as good as those at 1 year!!  Call today for your Complementary consultation and free Skin Test.  In addition there is a $150 rebate for your first injection!! We have product in stock! No More Deputy Dog Smile Lines!! Check out Dr. C & Nancy's Results!

    Vitamins, these are vital, Part 10 , Vitamin C




    Vitamine was the term coined by Casimir Funk, a Polish Biochemist, (1884-1967) for the unidentified substances present in food which could prevent the diseases scurvy, beriberi, and pellagra. This is the pioneer work in the study of vitamins in which Funk reviews his research work and postulates his theory of the existence of vitamines, essential factors in the diet.  We continue our series on the Vitamins.   Part 10  Vitamin C.      Yes!  Vitamin C is Great for your Skin.   Next month, more about Vitamin C for your skin and Sun Protection!

    Earth Day is 22 April 2008, Check out what you can do to celebrate! 

    On April 22, 1970, 20 million people across America celebrated the first Earth Day. It was a time when cities were buried under their own smog and polluted rivers caught fire. Now Earth Day is celebrated annually around the globe. Through the combined efforts of the U.S. government, grassroots organizations, and citizens like you, what started as a day of national environmental recognition has evolved into a         worldwide campaign to protect our global environment.

    Check out Dr. Sears' 2008 Zone Cruise, "Building a Better Brain"!

    Join Dr. Sears and Dr. Julian Bailes, chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at West Virginia Medical School, as they discuss the role of omega-3 fatty acids for mental health as well as other health aspects of the Zone Diet.

    Consider this the “Better Brain” Zone Cruise. Dr. Julian Bailes was the neurosurgeon for Randall McCloy, the sole survivor of the Sago mine disaster in 2006. He is also the head of the NFL Concussion Committee.

    During the two days of sailing to Bermuda you will hear exciting lectures on the Zone from Dr. Sears and Dr. Bailes. Then you spend three great days in Bermuda, followed by more lectures on the two-day cruise back to Boston. As always, great Zone meals are the hallmark of any Zone Cruise as well as enjoying the community of other Zoners.

    The Bermuda Zone Cruise will embark from Boston July 13, 2008, aboard the Norwegian Dream.  For more information, call Cruise Holidays, 1-800-772-0847. Ask for the Zone Desk.                  The Zone Cruise

    The "Mini" Non Invasive Extreme Makeover, everybody needs one!  Great Value!!

    The addition of "Pixel" Skin Resurfacing and Infrared Skin tightening combined with Intense Pulsed light and Diamond Microdermabrasions now allow us to design what I will call our "Mini Non Invasive Extreme Makeover".  This combination of procedures performed over a 6-8 week period will allow clients to experience all these technologies at a very reasonable price. These procedures target areas which are of most concern to our clients including unwanted Pigmentation (browns and reds), Skin Texture and Tone, Fine Wrinkles, Acne Scarring and some Sagging. 

    NEW "Mini Non-Invasive Extreme Makeover",

     More Information about Diamond Microdermabrasion...Visit the "Javani Site"
