What’s the Difference Between Fat Loss and Weight Loss?
Oftentimes, when we step on the scale and see a slight increase or decrease in our weight, we assume we’ve lost or gained body fat, but the reality is not that cut and dry. There’s a big difference between losing weight (which is the sum of your muscles, bones, organs, fluids, body fat and more) and shedding body fat to achieve your fitness and aesthetic goals.

3 Things You Can Do to Keep Your Skin In Check Under Stress
Many of us forget that our skin is a continuous, self-renewing organ (our largest organ in fact). The quality of our diet and our environment play a role in the health of our skin, but so does stress! This has undoubtedly been a very stressful time. Stress causes inflammation and hormonal shifts, which can result in acne outbreaks, eczema flare-ups, the over production of oily skin or conversely dehydration resulting in dry skin. Stress effects everyone differently. Read on to learn how you can take simple measures for beautiful, healthy skin.
Our Patient’s Journey Correcting Hyper-Pigmentation
A few words from Dr. T-
A friend, and patient, sent me her story to share with our clients. She struggles with hormone-related melasma and hyperpigmentation from sun damage. For years she had tried “quick cures” she found online, only to be disappointed by the lack of results and the waste of time and money. Shortly after we met, she learned there are real solutions that will temper the appearance of melasma and remove sun damage. However, these solutions require disciplined lifestyle modifications and maintenance. If you’re willing to put in the work, I guarantee you, you’ll love the results. If you identify with this story and are searching for solutions, give us a call. If you know someone who struggles with melasma and hyperpigmentation, please share this story. When we say we’re dedicated to helping our clients look and feel their best, we mean it.
