17/06/2013 | The best way to beat the burn is to stay out of the sun and apply lotion. But research shows that certain foods may also play a part in protecting our skin. And while covering up between 11am and 3pm and wearing sunscreen is good advice, watching what we eat could help protect us, too.
17/06/2013 | Finasteride is a synthetic drug for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (MPHL) and an enlarged prostate. The side effects of finasteride for treatment of these two conditions can include increased rates of sexual dysfunction, such as low libido and erectile dysfunction. Building on the discovery that finasteride has also been shown to reduce alcohol intake and suppress alcohol preference in mice, a new study has found that a majority of men with finasteride-related sexual side effects noticed a decrease in their alcohol consumption.
17/06/2013 | Three months before her wedding day, Louise Jackson booked into a salon for a set of eyelash extensions. This is a process where individual synthetic lashes are glued onto your own, promising a lash- boosting effect lasting up to six weeks. Louise had never had the treatment before, but this was a trial run for the longer, fuller lashes she hoped would add a bit of glamour to her big day.
16/06/2013 | Poor Wayne Rooney. When he bravely told the world about his hair transplant two years ago, did he know what he was getting into? It looked great for a while but already he’s been back to the hair clinic, having more follicles transplanted. It is lucky he has deep pockets, given that each of those follicles costs around £2.50 to move, and a balding head requires thousands.

Mentor Worldwide LLC, the U.S. market leader in breast aesthetics, today announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved MENTOR® MemoryShape™ Breast Implants, providing new options for women looking for a more natural shape and youthful feel from breast enhancement or reconstruction surgery.
14/06/2013 | A woman lost her unborn baby after she was prescribed a powerful acne drug not suitable for mothers-to-be. Doctors should only have given Sarah Sharma, 27, isotretinoin after making absolutely sure that she was not pregnant. But they failed to follow simple guidelines which state she should have been on the pill for at least a month before they took a pregnancy test.
13/06/2013 | You may have Botoxed away your worries (or at least your worry lines) and firmed up your bingo wings. And you may even have slimmed down those chunky ankles, these days known as cankles. But there is a new problem zone in town: the chinkle – or the chin-wrinkle – and it is a real area of concern.
13/06/2013 | Organic brand Orico say their Full Cup Elixir can do it in just six weeks! Orico's Full Cup Bust and Neck Enhancing Elixir can increase bust size by two to four centimetres thanks to mukul extract taken from the bark of the guggul tree.
13/06/2013 | A clinic boss has rubbished claims that Kerry Katona was ever in danger after undergoing a “vampire facelift” in Newcastle. The former Atomic Kitten star has told how her face swelled up “like the Elephant Man” following the gruesome cosmetic procedure – which involves injecting blood platelets into the face – at ReVamp in Jesmond.
12/06/2013 | Realistic motivations and expectations are key to successful results, according to Atlanta plastic surgeon. The choice to have plastic surgery is a personal one, and patients who have reasonable goals generally report satisfaction with their results. However, if a prospective patient has unrealistic expectations for plastic surgery, she or he should be asked to reconsider the decision to move forward.
12/06/2013 | You've heard of Botox and you've heard of labiaplasty. You've even heard of vajazzling. But ball ironing? "Ball ironing" is pretty much what it sounds like, only replace the painful clothing iron with a laser. It costs $575, but apparently a smooth scrotum is priceless!
09/06/2013 | Pop star Kerry Katona reveals today how she feared for her life when her face swelled horrifically after having a “vampire facelift”. Swollen and bruised, devastated Kerry tells how she broke down in tears when she saw her inflamed face in the mirror and thought she would never recover.
06/06/2013 | Boots has introduced a revolutionary £29.99 spray, Inhibitif, that claims to minimise the need for hair removal by targeting the hair follicles to radically slow down the growth-rate.
05/06/2013 | In the wake of Sweden’s announcement that, based on new evidence, all PIP implants in their country should be removed as a preventative measure, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons today reiterates its own call for similar analysis to take place in the UK as a matter of urgency. The BAAPS, the only organisation based at the Royal College of Surgeons exclusively dedicated to aesthetic (‘cosmetic’) surgery, and which represents the vast majority of NHS plastic surgeons in private practice, welcomes the findings as ‘finally’ addressing some of the previously unexplained symptoms witnessed in patients.
