Laser Lip Treatment
Do you have excess lip lines that make you look older than you are? Dr. Shamban demonstrates the dual Fraxel restore laser to eliminate Andrea's lip wrinkles.
The laser uses fractional resurfacing technology, which means only a fraction of the skin receives the laser light. This treats both pigment and wrinkles that appear aroundthe lips, and there's no recovery downtime.
"It will perk her lips right up," Dr. Shamban says.
Aimee, 51, has young-looking skin, but her hands are a dead giveaway of her actual age. To help plump and smooth them,Dr. Ordon performs the Dead Giveaway Lift by injecting a natural wrinkle filler into her hands.
"The result is dramatic," ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says.

The Mommy Diet
Alison's new book,
The Mommy Diet: A Month-By-Month Plan for a Healthy Body and Mind Before, During and After Pregnancy, is a great resource for staying healthy, whether you're a new mom, mom-to-be or mom on the go!
Alison has a 2-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son, and says she learned a lot about staying healthy after her first pregnancy.
"I learned so much from my first experience about how to attack it, how to deal with it the second time," she says. "I gained less weight with my second pregnancy. Obviously, the knowledge that I learned at The Biggest Loser helped a lot ... I was able to lose the weight a lot quicker the second time, and I developed a better attitude about it with the second pregnancy, which is not to try to get back what I had before, but to be the best and healthiest me I can be today.
"The premise of The Mommy Diet is that you need to take that time for you," Alison adds. "If your kid is 2 or 20, it's still applicable. It still helps you, because you need to make that time for yourself. You can be a good role model for your kids by taking that time and emphasizing your own health."
The book is divided by trimester, and Alison shares simple tips for maintaining your health during each phase.
First Trimester: Eat a Folate-Filled Salad
The salad is easy to make and a good way to get lots of nutrients, including extra folate, into your diet.
2 cups raw spinach leaves (100 micrograms folate)
2 tbsp orange juice (10 micrograms folate)
1 tsp olive oil 1 cup whole strawberries, hulled and chopped (36 micrograms folate)
Toss the spinach leaves with the juice, oil, salt and pepper so the leaves are all lightly coated. Add the strawberries, toss gently and serve.
"This would be great before the first trimester, when you're trying to get pregnant," OB-GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson says.
Second Trimester: Exercise
Exercising is vital to staying healthy during and after pregnancy. Alison and Dr. Lisa demonstrate simple exercise tips for pregnant women.
Third Trimester: Rekindle Romance
Alison stresses that keeping the romance alive during pregnancy is important to your relationship. So don't be shy and keep the passion high!
