In case you didn’t already know, a selfie is a self-portrait photo. They are usually taken with a hand-held camera phone, or sometimes a digital camera. Selfies are usually uploaded to your social media account, such as Facebook or Twitter, and shared with friends and family.

Did you know that 2014 was proclaimed the year of the selfie? Social media network Twitter mentions that “The term “selfie” has been mentioned more than 92 million times on Twitter — a 500% increase on 2013.”

Did you know that the Estetica Institute offers patients a variety of aesthetic services at their Palm Beach Gardens, Florida office including permanent makeup? This treatment is a cosmetic technique, which injects permanent colored pigments into the very top layers of your skin.

Permanent makeup is similar to a tattoo and a tiny needle is used to inject various shades of pigmented ink into the surface layers of your skin. An anesthetic gel is usually applied to your skin to numb the area being worked on and a skin patch test is used to rule out any allergic reactions.

Your aesthetician uses this technique to give you permanent makeup color to your lips, eyes and eyebrows. The technician will create permanent, long-lasting lipstick, lip liner, eyeliner and brow enhancement.

The benefits of permanent makeup include:

  • No need to reapply makeup throughout the day
  • Makeup stays put even during swimming or strenuous workouts
  • Perfect option for anyone allergic to traditional makeup and cosmetics
  • Fills in sparse eyebrows and/or creates fuller looking lips
  • Save time as you no longer have to apply makeup before going to work or social events

Schedule Your Consultation with Dr. Greg DeLange

The doctor and his staff of medical assistants offer a variety of cosmetic and plastic surgery services depending on your exact wishes for personal improvement.  Permanent cosmetics are just one of the many medi-spa services offered at the south Florida plastic surgery office.

 

 

Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures

Patient Demographics are Getting Larger and More Inclusive

Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures

The Estetica Institute offers numerous popular procedures, like Botox, to the Palm Beaches to help men and women combat the signs of aging.

With the new wave of self-awareness, health trends and clean living, cosmetic surgery is seeing a surge of new patients of all ages and body types. Dr. Greg DeLange says there is a growing desire among the population to eat better, look better and feel better – inside and out. An increased general awareness of the various types of cosmetic surgeries available has lead to more informed, motivated and determined patients who are ready to feel good about their bodies and improve their self-confidence in a big way.

Top Cosmetic Procedures

The Estetica Institute reports that while surgical procedures are still in high demand, they are now seeing an even larger demand for non-invasive, non-surgical procedures that are performed in their high-tech, on-site spa. Laser hair removal, lipotripsy (a non-invasive treatment that causes fat cells to breakdown), Botox, and laser hair removal are all at the top of the list for patients. These can all be performed in just a few hours with no recovery time needed. When it comes to cosmetic surgery inquiries, the top leaders are breast augmentation and reconstruction, tummy tucks for those who have embraced a healthier lifestyle and are now seeking to eliminate extra skin, rhinoplasty (nose jobs), and chin implants (a procedure that Marilyn Monroe had performed). The beauty industry has always been a large one, but cosmetic surgeons suspect that the new surge of interest in cosmetic surgery is now based less on “keeping up with the Jones’” or increasing ones status, and far more on patients simply seeking to regain their pre-baby body, reconstruct themselves after massive weight loss or injury, and to generally feel more at peace with themselves and have their insides and outsides aligned.

Botox Combines Convenience and Results

Botox Combines Convenience and Results

Injectables are offering patients an new universe of options.

The increased popularity and acceptance of cosmetic surgery means that more men and women are researching procedures and discovering that there may be something that is right for them. Many are choosing surgical procedures, but for some, going under the knife may be a bridge too far.

For some patients, they may simply be apprehensive about surgery. For others, they may not want to have the downtime that is associated with a recovery.

The Estetica Institute offers patients an option that can provide incredible results without the downtime or the surgery. Injectables can provide patients with a way to take years from their appearance and get the look they want.

Botox Palm Beach can be used to soften or even eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles that are a part of aging. It works by blocking signals from the brain to muscles that cause them to contract and create creases in the skin. When the muscles relax, the lines fade in just a few days.

Injectable fillers offer another option, and more patients are taking advantage of this route. As we age, we lose volume under the skin, resulting in sagging tissue. Injectables can be used to replenish that volume and create a more youthful look. It can be used to correct bags under the eyes, sagging cheeks, and even sagging skin on the hands.

These options offer a convenient way for patients to get the dazzling look they want without surgery. Consult with a cosmetic surgery professional today to find out if any of these procedures could help you achieve your beauty goals.

Estetica Institue beauty trends and Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei: Timeless Beauty

What Makes the Institute especially relevant in today’s cosmetic surgery world, particularly for South Florida, is how its team keeps a finger on the pulse of beauty trends in both the Palm Beaches and the world. Estetica Institute’s Dr. Gregory DeLange is a leading plastic surgeon familiar with every recent trend and developing standards for procedures as diverse as breast augmentation and eye lifts. Dr. DeLange helps prospective patients understand the options of all procedures, such as the nuances between small breast implants and larger sizes. In his consultations patients are presented with a number of important before and after photos that outline the many variations that breast implant size and shape afford them, for example.

Round breast implants provide a more symmetrical appearance when viewed from the front. Anatomical implants, frequently called “teardrop implants”, provide a more naturalistic or anatomically-correct appearance when viewed from the profile. In the not too distant past, the trend was for larger implants on women’s bodies, regardless of body type. Today, with many movie stars such as Marisa Tomei and Nicole Kidman rumored to have undergone breast augmentation using smaller implants, subtler appearances are gaining in importance.

Dr. DeLange and his team at Estetica Institute offer an exceptional holistic beauty experience that is unsurpassed in the cosmetic surgery industry. Beauty Trends come and go and it is important to find the right plastic surgery center that understands the difference between a trend and a classic look. The most beautiful you comes from making a decision on being best informed and having the right team behind your rejuvenation.
