72 Hours After a Mastopexy

Posted by on Nov 5, 2016 in Beauty, CosmetiCare, Family | 1 comment

 Sponsored (excuse any typos..I’m still not 100% myself) I was initially going to write this 24 hours following my mastopexy (breast lift), but I was still coming down from anesthesia, hyped up on Norco, and my words just didn’t seem to make much sense. So, here I am sharing about what the past 72 hours have been like following my procedure at CosmetiCare. Over the past 72 hours, I have felt a whirlwind of emotions. I always have trouble with anesthesia and was grateful to only have a couple of cases of vomiting before leaving the surgery center following my procedure. In my pre-op appointment, the nurse had advised me that I might have drains following the surgery, and I was super upset when I first saw the bloody tubes coming out of my breasts. The first night, my...

Breast Augmentation Virtual Consultation

Posted by on Aug 25, 2016 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 Sponsored Last week, I shared with all of you about how I want to have my breast fixed. I have been a mix of emotions since finally making the decision to have it done and made the choice to have a virtual consultation for my breast augmentation vs. coming into the CosmetiCare office. I thought I might feel more comfortable taking my top off to be looked at in the comfort of my home, and I loved that they had the option of a virtual consultation. I called CosmetiCare and made an appointment to have the consultation with Dr. Niccole who is well-known for being the best plastic surgeon in Orange County. Since I have already had multiple procedures done in the CosmetiCare med spa, I felt comfortable with my decision to have the work done with Dr. Niccole....

I Loved Nursing But it Destroyed My Breasts

Posted by on Aug 16, 2016 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 Sponsored Having children takes its toll on a mother’s body. When my oldest son was adopted, I wanted the best for him. I wanted him to have the best nutrition possible, so I met with a lactation consultant who assisted me with bringing in a milk supply to try and breastfeed him. I took special supplements and pumped, and pumped, and pumped the life out of my breasts attempting to produce milk, and was unsuccessful. Then when my youngest child was born biologically, I again tried to breastfeed and was successful. I was so successful with nursing that I nursed my youngest son for almost three years. Once I was finished breastfeeding him, my breasts were lifeless, droopy, and rested on my stomach without support. I have never felt the same about my body since nursing. I feel less...

Five Reasons to Try Botox

Posted by on Jul 11, 2016 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 I am a CosmetiCare Ambassador It has been almost a year since first trying Botox. Over the past year, I have found that I have only needed to “refresh” my skin twice with more units, and have noticed a huge difference the overall look and feel of my skin. Love the way you look The main reason why I began using Botox was that I wanted to love the way I once looked in the mirror. Since I have blue eyes and fair skin, I have seen such a significant amount of premature aging around my eyes, and since starting Botox a year ago, I saw those fine lines begin to diminish. Instead of avoiding looking at myself in the mirror, I’ve found myself looking in the mirror like I did when I was in my 20’s. Reverse the...

Mother Daughter Facials at CosmetiCare

Posted by on May 12, 2016 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 We are a CosmetiCare Ambassador As my daughter has started to become a teenager, it has become necessary for me to teach her how to care for her skin. Not only do I want her to care for her skin, but I also want be a good example by having healthy skincare habits and getting facials on a regular basis. Ever since I have begun having skincare treatments at CosmetiCare, I have noticed an increase in my self-confidence, and my skin is always glowing. While getting a facial during the holidays, I talked with the esthetician about the break-outs that my daughter was experiencing. She offered to use some high-frequency ultrasonic waves on her forehead to help battle the break-out. Within hours, my daughter noticed that the blemishes began to disappear, and she immediately realized why it is important...

CosmetiCare HydraFacial Helps Teens Battle Breakouts

Posted by on Dec 28, 2015 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 Sponsored As I have been entering the tween/teen years I have noticed my face starting to get acne. I was doing everything I could to try and make it go away, from washing my face twice a day to putting on face masks, but it wouldn’t go away. It is my forehead that was getting the most acne, and it was starting to bother me more and more. During our holiday break from school, I went with my mom to her CosmetiCare appointment. My brother and I were waiting patiently in the waiting room for my mom to finish her HydraFacial. While she was getting her facial, she told them about my concern over the acne I was developing. Once my mom had finished her facial, she brought me back so that they could look at my facial acne....

Does an IPL Really Work?

Posted by on Dec 23, 2015 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 We are a CosmetiCare Mom Ambassador It wasn’t just stretch marks that I was left behind with after the birth of my child, but also *ugly* pigmentation on my face. While I thought that the dark brown spots on my face would fade over time, it has been a little over eight years, and I still have the spots that I developed during pregnancy. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on various skincare products that have made claims of fading dark spots, and I was just about to give up on the idea that I would be able to leave the house without a layer of foundation until coming to CosmetiCare in Newport Beach. During my initial consultation at CosmetiCare, they advised me that I can reduce the pigmentation on my face with the use of an Intense Pulsed Light...

A Beautiful Smile with Juvederm

Posted by on Dec 1, 2015 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 Sponsored After making having my consultation at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, the one treatment that I never expected to myself to do is a lip enhancement. When I was talking with the consultant who helped to set-up my mommy makeover beauty plan, she asked me what were some of my facial features that were bothering me. She made me stop and think. The first thing that came to mind was how my upper lip would always disappear when I smiled. I’ll admit that I was nervous about just the thought of having a lip enhancement done. I have read many horror stories online, and I didn’t want to have big puffy swollen looking lips. The entire staff at CosmetiCare made me feel comfortable and relaxed about the process and fully educated me on what to expect when getting a lip...

Natural Looking Face Lift with Voluma

Posted by on Nov 18, 2015 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 Sponsored There are many days that I find myself looking into the bathroom mirror and wonder where the youthful face that I once had has gone. The stresses of daily life and parenting have put its toll on my youthfulness, and as I get closer and closer every year to my 40th Birthday, I crave that look that I once had. I remember that when I looked younger, I felt younger. I see my face changing day by day to look a lot like my Grandmother, who had heavy wrinkles and sunken cheeks, but what I have recently learned is that I don’t have to grow old with the signs of aging that she once had too. After beginning treatment at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, I have found that spunk in my life that I had lost. I began...

Guess What? It’s ok to Talk about Botox

Posted by on Sep 14, 2015 in Beauty, CosmetiCare | 0 comments

 I am a CometiCare Mom Ambassador BOTOX It is that one word that every mom is afraid to admit saying that they have had done. Especially living here in Orange County where there has always been such a huge stereotype around plastic surgery and injectables. Guess what? Doing Botox does not make a person vain or “plastic.” It is just something that many women want to do to reverse the signs of aging. And, it is ok to talk about it with other moms. As Moms, it is so important to love our bodies. While our bodies are quickly aging, it is ok to take advantage of things that our parents generation did not have access too in order to keep looking and feeling younger longer. Having our hair curled at the blow bar makes us feel good. I...
