Stop the Stress
If you feel extremely stressed day in and day out, you may be putting your health at risk. Stress is often triggered by a stressor, such as finances, work or marital problems, and it can cause a number of medical issues, such as high blood pressure, hyperventilation, ulcers, vomiting and increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
Tami, a 34-year-old single mother of two, feels that daily stress may be getting the best of her. "You kind of feel like you're on a roller coaster, just constantly going," she says. "There's no break."
Julia, 46, is frustrated with her saggy brows, which she inherited from her mother. She would like to look younger but isn't ready for invasive plastic surgery. "I can feel my brow laying on my eyelid," she says. "I just want to feel good in my own skin."
A traditional endoscopic brow lift requires three to five small incisions in the scalp, where small pegs are drilled into the skull and forehead tissue is then attached to the pegs. The surgery is invasive and takes approximately two weeks to heal.
Instead, Julia opts to undergo Ultherapy, a non-surgical brow lift that uses ultrasound to target and lift deep tissue structures and tighten the skin and it requires no recovery time. "What this process does is it stimulates the skin's natural ability to make collagen," board-certified dermatologist Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi says. "What we see is gradual lifting, toning and tightening over time."
