Breast implant surgery is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in women worldwide. However, a recent plastic surgery statistic released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) revealed that breast lift procedures are gaining popularity throughout the U.S. as there has been a 70 percent increase in breast lifts, also called mastopexy, since 2000. ASPS reports that board certified members have conducted over 90,000 breast lifts in 2013, up from 53,000 in 2000, revealing the drastic shift in preference for a more youthful breast with or without augmentation. According to ASPS President Robert X Murphy, Jr., MD, many women are looking for youthful breasts by making use of the tissue they already have. In contrast, breast implant surgeries Read More
PVPS is proud to launch the newest breakthrough in anti-aging – Micro Needling by SkinPen™. SkinPen™ stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin. This treatment can be used on all types of skin and is remarkably effective for scars, acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, lax skin, large pores and thin skin. The unique design of SkinPen™ allows for individualized settings and a treatment that is quite comfortable. Healthier-looking skin can be noticed immediately after treatment but the natural repair process continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Dermal collagen remodeling takes place over time and will continue to improve for up to 6 months after final treatment. DETAILS: Read More
On average your skin can shed 30,000 to 40,000 dead cells per minute. Exfoliation is very important when rejuvenating weary winter skin. Exposure to the “dry” indoor heat during the winter months can drain moisture from the skin and add layers of dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling heavy and looking unhealthy. Exfoliation involves the removal of these dead skin cells from the outer layer, leaving your skin feeling fresh and looking radiant and smooth.

For decades there has been a relentless search for effortless weight loss and painless cosmetic surgery. We might call these goals the “holy grail” of plastic surgery. Last year Americans spent over $11 billion on surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures and the potential market is likely much, much larger. The only thing that holds many of us back is the effort, pain and recovery typically required to improve/reshape our bodies. Without a doubt, there are tremendous profits to be made by anyone that can produce consistent results with minimal effort, pain and downtime. And wherever there are big profits to be made there will invariably be snake-oil salesmen trying to get a piece of the action. I cannot stress too Read More
Most everyone will agree that a deep tan looks beautiful. Most of us do not feel comfortable showing our un-tanned legs come spring, or really any time of the year for that matter. Living in Florida, we always want our skin to look its best since most of our wardrobe exposes our skin. So, how can we look beautifully bronzed without harming our health? After years of research and numerous trials and error, I have found that St. Tropez self-tanning products are the only way to look believably tan while nourishing my skin.
