It’s the long game y’all ⏰
When we put you on a new skincare protocol consider yourself in a committed relationship 👫
What is microneedling and why do I need it? Micro needling is a procedure that uses tiny sterile needles to puncture the skin.
This is no laughing matter. Because if I laugh I will definitely pee a little 😫 Incontinence after having kids is not “normal”. And it’s not something you should have to deal with. Emsella treatments can help.
Summer may be coming to an end soon 😭 but it’s never too late to talk about SPF tips!
Ingredient Spotlight: Salicylic acid. Why do we love salicylic acid? Let us count the ways…
It’s here! Emsculpt Neo is the revolutionary FDA cleared technology that not only eliminates fat BUT also builds muscle at the same time.
Do you pee when you sneeze, cough, jump, or laugh? Dealing with a weak core or pelvic floor muscles? Well, spoiler alert…you’re not alone! We’ve suffered in silence for too long! It’s NOT “normal” to lose control of your bladder after kids. But who wants to deal with inserting electrodes or undergoing surgical procedures to manage the effects of a weak pelvic floor?
All you first time toxers…listen up! I’m about to tell you why you should care about your forehead anatomy. I wish it was as easy as it looks…but forehead toxin is tricky. Everyone’s anatomy is slightly different, therefore, one injection pattern will not work for everyone.
What the heck is PRP? PRP is platelet rich plasma. Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood. Platelets are one of the cells in your blood that help with clotting, but they also aid in tissue and blood vessel repair.
How many units of Botox or Dysport do I need? Since I get asked this so often I figured I’d make a little graphic!
Choosing a skincare regimen can seem overwhelming… But it doesn’t have to be! At The Refinery we nerd out on all of the science, clinical studies and ingredient lists so you don’t have to.
Rosacea is more than just redness y’all… And it is so incredibly prevalent! Anywhere from 2-22% of the population deal with rosacea.
Everyone is talking about collagen…but what the heck is it anyway? Collagen is the protein in skin that gives it structure, suppleness, and stretch. Essentially, its the good stuff that helps our skin looking young. When you think about ideal skin appearance, you probably visualize a face with all of these properties.
*Nerd Alert* I’m sharing one of favorite products of all time + why I’m obsessed! Y’all know I am skeptical of products with big claims. However, if the product has been clinically studied I am much more willing to give it a chance.
Mother nature has a cruel sense of humor doesn’t she? Just when you think you’ve outgrown your “pizza face” days…bam! You’re breaking out like a pre-pubescent teen again.
You should care about your cheeks more. And I’m about to tell you why… I truly believe that the cheeks are one of the most important structures of the face. And one of the most underrated.
Let’s talk about Glycolic Acid. What is it? Glycolic acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), derived from sugarcane.
After you read this post you will be asking me to make you fatter. That’s right, fatter! Facial fat is important for an aesthetically pleasing appearance. If you had no fat in your face you would look weird, and sick, and scary.
In relation to dermal fillers lips often get a bad rap. I think that’s because it is so easy to do them wrong. Lip anatomy is incredibly complex and can vary widely from person to person. This must be considered when approaching any filler treatment in the lips.
Ingredient Spotlight - Hydroquinone (HQ) A powerful pigment reducer, when used correctly and with caution.
Skincare Myth #1 - If I put sunscreen on in the morning I am protected all day. Girl, I wish it were true.
A few little dark spots across your nose and cheeks. When you were younger they were “cute”, right? Turns out dark spots in your 20’s and 30’s aren’t cute anymore. And they aren’t freckles. Dark spots on the face can be caused by different things, and are treated in different ways.
This is exactly what I used to transform my skin… I had so many people interested in knowing exactly which products I used over the last 4 months, so here it is!h an idea.
Is it time for Botox? If you’re taking the time to read this…the answer is probably yes.
