The Top 6 Ways To Get Rid of Dark Under Eye Circles!

Under eye bag treatment by New York Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MAS | 917-703-7069, under eye bags, dark under eye circles, plastic surgery, nyc plastic surgeonTired of looking tired?

Hard-to-treat dark under-eye circles can be a burden, and leave you looking like you haven’t slept in days. What many people don’t know though is that there is more to dark circles than just sleep deprivation!

There are 4 components that need to be addressed when it comes to the under eye area. The skin, the discoloration, the bags, and the hollow. The darkness that forms under your eyes is caused by tiny blood vessels that become visible beneath very thin eyelid skin, and the circles become more noticeable if you have fine lines, wrinkles, puffy bags or hollows under your eyes. For the best result, you need to treat all of these problems.

So how do you get rid of under eye circles and bags? Continue Reading to find out…

Celebrity Skin Care from MAS! Megan Fox

megan fox plastic surgery, megan fox skin care, megan fox botox

Being the most talked about star in the first two Transformers movies can have its ups and downs. But what is truly impressive is the transformation Megan Fox has gone through herself! When the first Transformers movie came out, all anyone was talking about was how gorgeous she was, but many people also noticed that she didn’t have great skin. Granted, no one has perfectly flawless skin all the time, and even well known stars have their bad days. But whatever Megan Fox has been doing, it has clearly been working because there has been a dramatic improvement in the appearance of her skin. So I did some digging to get the facts about this transformation!

  1. megan fox skin care, megan fox plastic surgery, megan fox botoxTwice a day, Megan Fox uses a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer from natural skin care products, such as the Eminence Biodynamic Skincare Line. When she does get the occasional breakout, she uses the Pore-fector Kit from Bliss Spa, which comes with a high-tech tool that basically power-washes your pores, deeply cleaning your skin (available at Sephora, $185).
  2. Megan loves getting regular facials. Her favorite facial and treatment combination is Sonya Dakar’s Fitness Facial and Diamond Peel ($725 per treatment!).  This basically consists of an exfoliating facial with a lactic acid peel, followed by a microdermabrasion treatment. It has also been rumored that she has an esthetician come to her house 3 times a week! If you’re interested in a fantastic exfoliating facial for less than 1/3 of the price of Megan’s, check out the MAS Magnifique Facial by Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery (1175 Park Avenue, New York City).
  3. Megan is also an advocate of eating a well balanced diet to help keep her skin looking good from the inside out. She eats 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, and makes sure to drink plenty of water. This importance of this step is probably the most underestimated in the field of skin care. Your diet plays a huge role in how your skin looks, so whatever you do, don’t ignore it!

Megan Fox is a perfect example of how these three steps can completely “transform” your skin! If you have any questions about the MAS Magnifique Facial, or about clinical skincare in general, please feel free to contact me anytime!

The MAS Magnifique Facial! Brighten and Tighten Your Skin for Spring!

MAS Magnifique Facial, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Plastic Surgeon New York City, Skincare New York City, Facials NYC

Rejuvenate and relax with MAS Magnifique, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery’s signature facial and glycolic peel.

This refreshing facial is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and will leave your skin glowing! Many of the products used for this facial are part of the Vivite skin care line, created by Allergan (the same company who makes Botox, Juvederm, and Natrelle breast implants). All Vivite products are made with their unique GLX technology, which is a combination of glycolic acid and natural antioxidants. Together, these ingredients promote collagen, hyaluronic acid, and epidermal growth of the skin (essential components for healthy, radiant, young skin).

What is MAS Magnifique?

This facial begins with a gentle cleanser to wash away any make up, oil, and other irritants that build up on the skin throughout the day.

MAS Magnifique Facial, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Plastic Surgeon New York City, Skincare New York City, Facials NYCThe skin is then exfoliated, with the help of a high-speed clinical cleansing brush.  The brush helps the cleanser penetrate the skin, while gently scrubbing away the top layers of dead skin.  This leaves the skin looking fresh and smooth.

Next, the skin is prepared with a glycolic prep, designed to help the skin absorb the products evenly. Vivite’s glycolic peel is then applied to diminish pore size by taking exfoliation to a whole new level! A soothing peppermint mask is used after the peel has been washed off to cool and calm your skin, and a redness-reducing moisterizer with sunscreen is applied to complete the facial.

How long does it take?

It usually takes 30-45 minutes, depending on your skin type.

Is there any down time?

No, this is a mild peel that does not require any down time. You can immediately re-apply your make-up and go on with your day looking noticeably more radiant and beautiful.

How much does it cost?

The MAS Magnifique Facial is priced $175, but if you mention this article when you schedule your consultation, you’ll get it for $99!

How do I schedule a MAS Magnifique Facial?

Feel free to email me anytime, or call 917-703-7069 to make an appointment at our beautiful Park Avenue office in New York City!
