Safe but not best Mg: It is totally safe but magnesium oxide is a very poorly-absorbed form of magnesium- it may work as a laxative but won't raise your magnesium levels! you would be far better off taking magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate! see http://drcarolyndean.Com/magnesium_miracle/. ...Read more

Which fillers last longer: restylane, (dermal fillers) juvederm, teosyal, esthelis, aquamid, or bio alcamid?

I avoid "permanent": Though Aquamid (and others)is not available in the US, it is in other countries. (if it's being offered in the US you should avoid that office altogether). I generally recommend that my patients avoid permanent fillers though, especially when they are young like you, because you don't know how your face will change over the next 20 years. You may end up with volume where you don't want or need it. ...Read more

Note i did not say "appearance of wrinkles". Skinmedica is my favorite product to contain these. ...Read more

Which is more efficient laser lipo  or ultrasonic laser lipolysis?

Magician not wand: Many people sarcastically say it is the magician and not the wand that are responsible for excellent results. While laser lipolysis may promote some skin contraction, it may also cause significant ski burns or injury if not used properly and may prolong healing. The same is true with ultrasounds. I have used both and do not have a strong preference for either. ...Read more
