the Beauty BOOK
many purposes — from hygiene to a status indicator to a fashion choice. Isn’t it funny to think pumice stones or sandpaper were once some of the only ways to remove hair? Fifty years ago, the first laser was developed for this purpose, and today we have everything from waxing to laser hair removal to intense pulse light treatments. At Beautique, we use intense pulsed light, or IPL (a broad-spectrum light technology), and lasers for hair removal. These options allow us to customize treatments to each patient. For patients who have darker hair, we target the hair follicle at a different setting than for those with blonde or gray hair. The same customization is available for different skin types, so we can remove hair in the most efficient, effective way. In just 12 months our patients can be free of unwanted hair — and ready to put on their summer dresses without a second thought. I’m also very excited to share with you that we are adding a treatment that will ease the social discomfort and embarrassment connected with excessive sweating. For my patients who suffer chronically from the nuisance of very damp underarms, this treatment could be life-changing. Called miraDry, the technology uses thermal energy to carefully target and get rid of the sweat and odor glands in your underarm area. Like our other laser treatments, miraDry is fast and effective. We use local anesthesia to make it a virtually painless process, and you can see results after just one treatment. We are so excited to start offering this at Beautique. Contact us to learn more. Today, we are proud to offer our patients these exciting options among many other great treatments. Isn’t amazing to see how far technology has come? I can’t wait to see what’s next! Please give us a call at 956-664-1234 if you have any questions about our special offer for miraDry. I’m excited to help you have a great spring!
Since Beautique opened its doors 17 years ago, I’ve looked to the latest laser treatments for the benefits they bring to my patients. It started with a CO2 operating laser that allowed us to biopsy and remove lesions with little to no scarring. Laser technology has come even further since then, with everything from hair removal to infrared therapy to help our patients become their best selves. Lasers are precise, thorough, and minimally invasive — a winning combination that makes them effective for many different uses. I can use specific types to provide treatment without doing damage to the skin, and with new advancements, there is little discomfort for my patients. I enjoy innovation, and each year, I utilize the latest advances in the field to help my patients look and feel their best. I’ve been incorporating technology like laser treatments into my work for some time, and I’m still amazed at the results patients see with treatments like hair removal. In the history of the world, hair removal has served Tap Into These Beauty Innovations Transform Your Skin This Spring

Listen to Something New
THE BEST PODCASTS TO START IN 2019 Though podcasts have been around for over a decade, they have only recently found their stride in popular culture. And they don’t all feature nerds talking about “Game of Thrones.” In this form of audio entertainment, there really is something for everyone. A number of podcasts have broken into mainstream pop culture, like “My Favorite Murder,” “This American Life,” and NPR’s “Planet Money.” But these are only the tip of the iceberg. Here are a few lesser-known podcasts that are seriously worth your time. Start Something Fun: ‘Spirits’ The title “Spirits” is a play on the stories told and drinks enjoyed on this podcast. Co-hosts Amanda McLoughlin and Julia Schifini offer a fresh take on myths, legends, and folklore. From Greek classics to the tale of the Javanese Mermaid Queen, these lifelong friends and mythology enthusiasts examine what the stories we tell say about our culture, traditions, and values. If you’re eager to fill your year with something kinda creepy and kinda cool, you can’t go wrong with “Spirits.” Start listening at SpiritsPodcast.com. Go on an Adventure: ‘The Far Meridian’ Audio dramas are back and thriving in the world of podcasts. “The Far Meridian” explores the story of Peri, a lighthouse keeper whose brother disappeared long ago. Peri is terrified of leaving her home, so she’s never discovered what happened to him. That changes when her lighthouse begins to appear in a new location every morning, initiating her search for her brother. Fantastically fun and painfully real, this is a story about the courage it takes to leave home behind. Join the girl in the lighthouse at TheFarMeridian.com. Tackle Your New Year’s Resolutions: ‘The Marie Forleo Podcast’ We all need some advice. Why not get it from someone who knows what they’re talking about? Marie Forleo is an entrepreneur, writer, and philanthropist. And according to Oprah, she’s a thought leader for the next generation. Her mission is to help you become the person you most want to be. On the podcast, Marie and her guests discuss business, relationships, fear, love, and so much more. Get inspired at MarieForleo.com/marietv.

Say Goodbye to Your Razor JOIN THE HAIR-FREE CLUB
Our razors could very well fit the description of a frenemy: someone whose company we enjoy, but who will also cut us down at almost any opportunity. They help us get rid of unwanted hair, but they also leave behind cuts, nicks, stubble, and burns. Why do we keep them around? Maybe it’s time to purge yourself of this toxic relationship once and for all. There are so many potential new friends out there just waiting to treat you better than your razor does. One of those, as Dr. Sanchez mentioned on the cover, is laser hair removal. Aimed at long-term hair reduction, laser hair removal targets the hair follicle at the most responsive stage to reduce overall growth. Razor, be gone. Because hair grows in different phases, we time treatments accordingly so they will be most efficient in your hair-removal plan. There’s only one phase of hair growth — the anagen phase — that is responsive to laser treatment. Since we can’t know which phase hair is in, after the initial treatment we treat patients at precise intervals over multiple sessions to get them permanent results. Because of our thorough approach, our patients can say goodbye to their razor in just 12 months. Our system is also equipped for every hair and skin type. We customize your treatment to you! Unlike hair-removal devices that can’t target lighter hair or don’t respond as well to darker skin tones,
our lasers can be adjusted to ensure we get just the right approach for you.
It’s why we created our Hair-Free Club. It allows patients to save time and money by becoming members. You can treat multiple body areas in your
pre-scheduled monthly appointments, making membership the hassle-free way to hair removal. Membership to our Hair-Free Club starts at $99 a
month and includes each monthly session of laser hair removal. It also comes with several additional perks, including members-only gifts and discounts to our retail store. Let the rewards speak for themselves. Visit beautiquemedicalspa.com/lhr-club to learn more.
Hazelnut Berry Chocolate Bark
You know how refreshing lemons are in water, but what about using them as an ingredient in a facial? Well, that’s the case with alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), natural acids found in fruits that are used in some peels and treatments. AHA peels serve as refreshing, exfoliating treatments to leave your skin feeling renewed.
Inspired by Simple Vegan Blog

Reduce the appearance of wrinkles

JLO’s GLOW& CONFIDENCE
3 Tips You Can Follow to Achieve Her Youthful Glow
Jennifer Lopez looks as gorgeous as ever, virtually as youthful as she was in her breakout role in “Selena.” The reason? Her glow is coming from the inside out. In her 30- year career, Lopez has worked tirelessly to earn her fame as an actress, singer, and dancer. The effort has paid off with roles in upcoming movies like “Second Act,” her own television show called “World of Dance,” and a happy personal life with her two kids and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez.
Do I need to be better? What can I do to be better?’” She told InStyle magazine. “Now I know I’m really good at this. So I just want to do it.”
In addition to gaining confidence, Lopez’s glowing look is also the result of maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes cardio workouts and weight training on top of an already rigorous dance regimen. Her other beauty secrets lie in the three things she avoids:
3. Lack of sleep
Given the dehydrating effects of alcohol and caffeine and the depleting outcomes of not getting enough sleep, it’s no wonder Lopez looks as dewy as she does. The star also practices daily meditation — something that keeps her calm during busy days spent running to tapings, rehearsals, and mommy duty. It’s this balanced lifestyle that keeps Lopez healthy and gives her the energy to tackle each new project. We can’t wait to see what she does next, and what you can accomplish while following her lead.
Lopez says it’s taken her almost this long to feel comfortable in her multifaceted role. While she’s always embraced her appearance — most famously, her curves — breaking into the entertainment business as a kid from the Bronx was understandably intimidating. “When I first started, it was always a matter of ‘Am I good? Am I good enough?
