The state of discount cosmetic procedures
By Dr. Vish Banthia
Purchasing online daily deal coupons has quickly become the rule — not the exception — for savvy shoppers looking for little luxuries at lower-than-normal retail prices. With this new rule comes a growing pressure on medspas and cosmetic procedure providers to maintain their place in the industry while accommodating price-sensitive demand from consumers. Major online deal vendors in the industry like Groupon and LivingSocial offer cosmetic providers a potentially large group sale that brings a new group of people to their office, in return for deep discounts. But revenue might not be the only thing these providers are giving up. When discounts for medical procedures are widely advertised, unintended consequences may arise.

An unlikely new ally in the fight against acne
The Huffington Post
The emergence of pimples on the skin can be a frustrating experience for the majority of adolescents and up to 5 percent of the adult population that suffer through them. More colloquially known today as zits, these blemishes have both plagued and perplexed us for centuries. Research has focused on these sudden, and for the most part, unwanted uprisings, yet only in the past few years has a true cause — and potential cure — been found.

Beat the beauty addiction
Ahlan!
Are you guilty of indulging in one too many shots of Botox? Do you suffer from separation anxiety when parted from your hair straighteners, or is your beauty salon number one on your speed dial?

Eczema hurts more than the skin
The Canadian Press via Ottawa Citizen
Preet Bhogal still remembers being taunted in school for his inflamed skin. The Nova Scotia native would always wear long-sleeved shirts to cover his arms and tried to shrug off jeers about the flare-ups on his hands, but the words still hurt. "My eczema covered just about my whole body," says the 33-year-old, who has lived with the skin condition since he was a baby. "It definitely affected my self image, self esteem and mental health."
