As we discussed in part 1 of this series 'I Hate My Nose', Rhinoplasty is the fourth common cosmetic procedure that is popular among both men and women alike. What many don’t realize is that Rhinoplasty is not only for cosmetic purpose, but often times there is a medical need for this procedure as well.

After your smile, your nose is the feature that is very obvious on the face and is easily seen. For some of us, it is the first thing that that is noticed when we meet people. You may have flared nostrils, a crooked or unbalanced nose. The tip of your nose may be bumpy or have a bulbous look, maybe the angle between your nose and upper mouth isn’t aligned. Each time you look at yourself in the mirror, do you think if on your nose weren't so big? Or maybe it's too small, too wide, too long, or too short.

Most men pay very little attention to their skin. They want to look good and maintain regular shampoo, bathing and shaving, which are needed and a good thing! However, until recent years, most men did not concern themselves about their skin care. Men are supposed to look rugged, right?

A person with type 2 diabetes will be more likely to get skin infections. Their high blood glucose levels weaken their body's natural defenses making them less effective. Bacteria and fungi help infections to feed off of glucose. A diabetic usually drinks more water due to the thirst factor they have, which in turn causes them to pass more urine. This however, can lead to dry, itchy, skin. So, for all of these reasons, people with diabetes, paying extra attention to their skin and treat any skin problems quickly is most important.

It’s not the family tradition that you necessarily want either. We’re talking about acne, pimples, zits. Those nasty things that come up on our face for the most part and usually at the most inopportune time! For teenagers seems they ‘pop’ out just before the big date or party and for adults, they seem to ‘pop’ out just before the big meeting with the client, boss or the interview for the job of a life time.

Just as the name suggests, Laser Skin Rejuvenation improves the appearance of your skin by using a laser on your skin to rid the bad and ugly and bring out the best. For those who have hyper pigmentation, uneven skin tone, scarring and wrinkles, this treatment is ideal. However, not everyone is a candidate for Laser Skin Rejuvenation. The best candidates are those who are not a smoker and in good overall physical health. You also need to be realistic about the procedure and what clear that your goals are within the realistic possibility.

Crisp air, bright colored leaves and possibly the fireplace has been lit already for some. Fall is in the air, no doubt about it. Who doesn’t love the change of seasons? Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, the changing of a season is a time for new things, new beginnings. One bad thing about this change though is the change in the air. Along with the sun setting earlier, the winds are picking up and drying out, therefore your skin care routine needs to adjust with the weather!
