    Colorectal Cancer

    Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in the U.S. Processed meats are associated with a higher risk, whereas high-fiber diets are associated with a lower risk.

    A new study in JAMA Oncology points to chronic inflammation as a possible common thread between diet and risk. Researchers at Harvard found that people with dietary patterns most likely to cause inflammation were 32% more likely to develop colorectal cancer. A “proinflammatory” diet in the study included red and processed meats, whereas diets considered “anti-inflammatory” were rich in green leafy vegetables.

    (Did You Know? Unless there is a family history, screening (colonoscopy in most cases) should begin at age 50.)

    Two other factors changed the percentage of risk, gender and weight. Of the 32% increase in risk men had a 44% chance and women 22%. Overweight men had the potential risk of 48% however lean women had a 31% higher risk.

    The moral is to eat a diet rich in green leafy vegetables as well as yellow and eat less red and processed meat and sugar sweetened beverages.

    Permanent Makeup?
    Micro-blading is a technique of applying permanent makeup to your eyebrows with individual strokes simulating individual hairs. We also do permanent eyeliner and lips.


    Cellfina, www.cellfina.com, is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years. The best candidate has dimpling that is not caused by loose skin. The benefits are a long-lasting, single, in-office treatment that usually takes under an hour. No general anesthesia is needed and downtime is limited in most cases to the day of treatment. 96% of patients were satisfied after two years.

    Facial Wrinkles?
    Vollure is the newest filler for fine wrinkles. It doesn’t project as much as Juvederm but is smoother and lasts up to 18 months. Volbella is a lip filler that DOES NOT exaggerate the lips but improves wrinkles and creases in the lips and the skin just above the lips. Studies show it lasts for about a year. Come in and see what it has done for Diane, Crystal and Dianna. Voluma augments the cheeks and lifts some of the lower tissues.


    Neck Bands or Hypersweating under Arms?
    Botox can help with both. Come in for a free consult.

    Permanent Makeup?
    Micro-blading is a technique of applying permanent makeup to your eyebrows with individual strokes simulating individual hairs. We also do permanent eyeliner and lips.

    Lax Skin or Brown Spots?
    Collagen Induction Therapy or microneedling reduces facial pigmentation and improves wrinkles.

    Do you have unsightly brown spots on your face, hands or body?

    SkinCeuticals (many of you use their skincare products) has developed a “pen” that uses cryotherapy or freezes age and sun spots as well as skin tags. It uses carbon dioxide which freezes the superficial part of the skin at -79 degrees C. The technique is similar to when family physicians and dermatologists use liquid nitrogen to treat skin cancers.

    The procedure takes just a few minutes. The area is cleansed then sprayed with CO2 to freeze the spot. There is very little if any temporary discomfort. Immediately after, Vitamin C is applied and so can makeup. Vitamin C and a sunscreen are encouraged and should be applied while healing.

    The lesion will get darker and possibly scab before it sheds. It can take 7-21 days to shed completely. Healthy pink skin or lightening of the dark spot will appear. Maturation of the skin then follows the normal skin cycle of 6 weeks.

    If the spot is appropriate, we charge $150 for the first three spots then $30 for each thereafter.

    Pre-treatment One week three weeks

    Leg Veins?
    Sclerotherapy improves spider veins in your legs.
