Amid all of the holiday shopping, it’s nice to remember that the holidays are about giving. Dr. Copeland, along with thousands of individuals, corporations, non-profits, and institutions is joining in the ‘giving spirit’ to support worthy causes around the world on #givingtuesday.
We know Thanksgiving dinner is good for the soul; it may also be good for your skin. Recent studies provide evidence that slow-cooked meals, like turkey, do not contribute to the aging of cells as much as food that is cooked at higher temperature which produces glucosepane, which may encourage depletion of collagen.
In the Beautiful Skin Workout I list antioxidant-rich foods like spinach, berries and broccoli that promote healthy skin. And, have some red wine: There is proof that red wine, grapes, plums, peanuts, and other plant products containing resveratrol may promote collagen-producing cells. I was the first plastic surgeon to include resveratrol in a skin cream when we introduced Rewind Age-Defying Cream and it is also featured in Emerge Facelift Cream.
Here’s to a Happy Thanksgiving, and beautiful skin year-round!

As we approach the holiday season its difficult to keep the weight off. Exercising, eating right, of course are essential, but this may be the time to also think about Zerona. ZERONA® is an FDA cleared alternative to liposuction, which reduces inches with no pain, no surgery and no downtime. Patients are losing between 3.6 to 5.5 inches. Many are seeing even greater results when combined with a sensible diet and exercise program.
Who wants to spend extra time shaving and/or waxing? According to Esquire , John Hamm shaves up to three times a day which could lead to irritation, razor bumps and serious razor burn.
Many patients believe that lasers are ineffective on light hair. Lasers are programmed to target melanin (the pigment that makes hair dark) and effectively disable the growth potential of the hair follicle. Laser hair removal does seem to work best on those with a contrast between their skin and hair color, so light skinned, dark haired patients enjoy the best results. This does not mean that anyone with dark skin tones and dark hair or light skin and light hair are not candidates. Fortunately the advancement in technology has allowed lasers to treat all skin and hair tones, including light haired patients, effectively. Because the lasers do target pigment, often a light-haired patient can apply a melanin-based product to allow the laser to target the hair follicle more readily.
If you are tired of ingrown hairs and irritation from waxing and shaving, laser hair removal offers freedom from unwanted body hair. Now popular with both men and women, it is best suited for darker hair but new advances even allow reduction in gray or blonde hair. It is most commonly performed on the upper lip and chin, neck, chest, underarms, back, bikini line, and legs but can also be formed on the arms and feet as well. Dr. Copeland uses a variety of FDA approved lasers, such as the Light Sheer® laser, for permanent hair removal for all skin types. Patients are so pleased with the results and invariably tell me they wish they had done it sooner – especially considering the time and money they have spent over the years on temporary fixes.
